He who shall remain nameless ,

Good story crammed between ads

The production and narration on this are perfect. The format is not. After you take out the ads, intros, theme music and credits, episodes are like 15 minutes long.

Professional and Engaging

I am a subscriber to Wondery. I have been very impressed with the podcasts I have listened to so far. This story is NO exception!! It’s brilliant! The host and narrator keeps the audience engaged and his pace is perfect. I could not wait to listen to all the episodes. The story is shocking and intriguing. I loved this podcast. 5 stars!

Loose Money / Loose Story

There is an interesting story about the excesses of “Founders” such as Adam Neumann (the subject of this podcast) somewhere within the discussion of this podcast, but this show is lighter on details than I would like. This show focuses on the superficial things while ignoring the more insidious nature underneath. There is a good story that wasn’t told in this whole saga, and I feel sadness that it wasn’t told.
