We desperately need something like this
The old saw "those who don't learn from history are doomed to repeat it" has never been more relevant. This well-made and hugely entertaining podcast features interviews from people who failed. Listen to their stories, learn from their mistakes, and don't make the same ones yourself.
Leaders fail! It's okay!
Everyone says, "Fail fast, fail better." But it's still not easy to think, I'm going to take that might-fail risk! Hearing the fail stories of successful folks really gives you confidence in the process of trying.
Interesting insights into startup challenges
They've got a curious collection of guests in the first few episodes -- I like that they've all succeeded at big enterprises, as well as failed at others. Now how do we get Elon Musk on the show? I want to know about his big mess ups.
