Description

Netflix vs. HBO. Nike vs. Adidas. Business is war. Sometimes the prize is your wallet, or your attention. Sometimes, it’s just the fun of beating the other guy. The outcome of these battles shapes what we buy and how we live.  Business Wars gives you the unauthorized, real story of what drives these companies and their leaders, inventors, investors and executives to new heights -- or to ruin. Hosted by David Brown, former anchor of Marketplace. From Wondery, the network behind Dirty John and American History Tellers.

Customer Reviews

Educational & Informational

Personally I listen to podcasts to learn something new everyday and this show pushes all the right buttons. It teaches me about business, inspires me to strive for more in life, and entertains the hell out of me. Subscribing and wanting more... Is there anyway to get episodes early on Patreon?

Good idea, too slow

The first episode on Netflix vs. Blockbuster is interesting, but I could do without the drawn out descriptions and sound effects. I don’t need to know about the clothes someone is wearing. I don’t need someone to describe what the inside of a movie rental store looks like. This contributes to a big problem, the speed. It takes way too long to go through uninteresting parts of the “war”. I don’t think many listeners care about what type of shirt a guy likes, or a horse someone’s wife owns, or what they do on the weekend unless it is related to the story. Frankly, this first story sounds like it could be told in an interesting fashion in about an hour. I understand the idea of creating tons of episodes to draw in new listeners and pad numbers to sell advertising, but if you expect business minded people to stick around, you’re going to have to cut that out.

Good material, distracting format

The information is great, but the storytelling format is distracting. I wish this had more of a journalistic/reporting tone. With the dramatic wording and flowery details, I couldn’t focus, even though I really wanted to. (I stopped entirely when I reached a reenactment of a conversation between executives that was just too cheesy.) I hope they continue pursuing this idea for a podcast but rethink the format.
