This is a very enjoyable podcast(More Episodes please :)

I subscribed when I heard Jonathan was making another “duo” podcast. He’s been alone for so long... lol(Bring back Forward Thinking!!!please)

Anyways. The podcast is fun and interesting. They cover the history and hardships of companies and it’s very manageable to absorb as a listener. I’ve heard allot of Stuff podcasts but the hosts still manage to introduce fun little tidbits of info that other podcasts might have left out. The Brink siracha episode introduces business info that FoodStuff decided to leave out for whatever reason(Lauren come back to Forward Thinking! :(

One of my favorite things that Jonathan does is leave out politics from most of his podcasts. And honestly that means allot to me as a consumer who doesn’t want everything to be infused with politics. Podcasts, especially topic based ones, are meant as an escape to learn about something new. He will mention how politics play into a business or technology. But unlike other podcasts who selectively choose which party is always the bad guy for a favorite business or the good guy is for a business that needs to be regulated. Jonathan relays the info fairly. Anyways, just wanted to mention that because that’s why I’ve stayed a fan of Jonathan and his stuff podcasts since the beginning and it might put someone else at ease.(obviously. If you listened long enough. You'll know where everyone aligns themselves)
Thank You Jonathan :)

P.S. Tell Joe and Lauren to come back to Forward Thinking.

Please come out with more episodes!

I like the flow, I like the topic, just keep them coming!

Compelling stories from business

The podcast focuses on well known companies that reached a brink. Some triumphed and some failed. The hosts are very pleasant to listen to and the pace is lively. They avoid the irritating and time consuming chitchat that plagues most podcasts. Excellent!
