Fascinating

You would listen to this if you are interested on how products get invented and the challenges of building a consumer products business (against the odds, in most cases.) The host Mike Lovett does a great job of getting the deeper story from each of theise entrepreneurs. He reads my mind when he asks questions--digging in on what I would want to know. These stories are usually really inspirational and pick up where Grommet's short videos leave off.
