Walmart is declining in China but Sam’s club is growing and becoming unexpectedly successful in recent years. Apparently they locate their store well in the cities with merging middle classes. They are currently changing their strategies and focus in China now apparently. Surprisingly Sam’s club...Read full review »

This is my favorite podcast. Ben and David have created an incredible network of knowledge. A must check for anyone wanting to learn about business and strategy.

The best episode is the one in which Charlie Munger shuts down all their ultra self-serving bro questions. Every. Single. One. Then they cut out Charlie Munger explaining why VC is terrible and the biz model makes no sense… Great stuff.

Just discovered your podcasts. Entertaining and enlightening! Feels like we are sitting in the corner of an executive floor conference room eavesdropping.

Super interesting, deep coverage of companies and culture!

Hi guys! I absolutely love your podcast. A newbie to investing, Acquired teaches me how to do a deep dive and analyze a company. I’ve learned so much! Your Novo Nordisk and Charlie Munger (Berkshire) episodes were particularly interesting to me because these were some of my very first stock...Read full review »

I am truly truly impressed and immensely grateful for this podcast. I have learned so much about so many large companies. Each episode has an unbelievable density of information. There is so much value in each episode. I’ll still be re-listening to the back catalog on shuffle for the next several...Read full review »

I am a little late to the game but I just listened to the Taylor Swift episode and it was fascinating! I feel like we need an update with info from the Eras Tour!

I hit play whenever I’ve got a long drive. To me, each time I listen it’s like a movie playing in my head! So much insights within each episode—excellent work and great research!

The Jensen Huang NVIDIA episodes were great and detailed. These guys are super sharp but explain things clearly. Genius content. An amazing story too.

I’m from china. It’s very good!
XY野狼解说 via Apple Podcasts · China · 11/30/23
These guys take as much time to summarize a book as it takes me to read the book. I’m only exaggerating a little. You can reliably skip the first 5-10 minutes of every episode, which is total fluff. Furthermore, skip ahead by 15 seconds every time one of these guys says “Totalllly”, or any of a...Read full review »

3-4 hr podcasts are way too long. Otherwise, 5 star

Excellent podcast on how companies grow Even though l am a kid I still enjoy listening to it
urushdhddhdhdu via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 11/25/23
One of the best podcasts I listen too (and I listen to quite a few every week). I love the research and preparation that goes into each episode. But, more than the great storytelling, I think that the “X factor” is the brilliant analysis that Ben and David bring to each case. They go well...Read full review »

Consumed 100 episodes by now, and it’s a bliss everytime. Education and entertainment in one!

Only recently discovered the podcast and it’s amazing. Nothing better than well put together, long form content.
Jeffery Skilling via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 10/10/23
This is easily in my top 3 podcasts!

Just listened to my first episode of the acquired pod with Uber's CEO Dara Khosrowshahi and I’m hooked. I have been covering the rideshare industry for 10 years and this was one of the best interviews of Dara I’ve heard (maybe better than the ones I’ve done lol). Ben and David ask great...Read full review »

As a strategy leader, I love listening to Acquired. They go into the level of depth for each company that is unparalleled. Entertaining, informative and thought provoking. Highly recommended.
jlthemoon via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/09/23
One of the best podcasts out there. Their attention to detail and genuine enthusiasm is such a pleasure to listen to.
JA writer via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 08/08/23
I’m a very late starter to the show. Thanks to Ali Abdaal for the recommendation. Can’t get enough of these amazing stories Pitso
@pitsotsibs via Apple Podcasts · South Africa · 08/06/23
What happened to the fabulous music from the original series. The new music is too vanilla! Not worthy of your research and commentary!
kluckhome via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 08/02/23
Hey guys. Love the show. New and making my way through the backlog. Loved Lockheed. I’m 5 stars on the SHOW. 2 - 3 stars on the episode. I’m into the Analysis section and there is a key person missing. Tiger ? Any reason he isn’t ?
IrishEddie66 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/30/23
Probably the best business podcast. I’ve listened to every episode since 2018. I only wish there were more - I’ve listened to some Episodes twice 😭
Swagtitties via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/27/23
I came to this podcast to hear the Porsche story but couldn’t get through it due to all of the bad information. The hosts clearly didn’t do thorough research and if they actually read Excellence Was Expected they certainly didn’t retain the facts from it. I got as far as their incorrect claim...Read full review »

I love listening to acquired
Kasearnold via Apple Podcasts · Uganda · 05/05/23
Ben and David have a great rapport with each other. I love the depth, the structure, the sidebars, the laughing. They somehow make 3 hours of talking about companies incredibly entertaining and enthralling. I think Nvidia was my fav so far.
PaulAtreidesOfArrakis via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/29/23
Deep research for each and every episode
Richiardi1978 via Apple Podcasts · Spain · 04/26/23
My English and tech knowledge is not good enough to understand the show right a way, it took me 3times more to understand the context and term, but it didn’t stop me to finish all the episodes! I will keep listening! Thanks
Yadram.K via Apple Podcasts · Taiwan · 04/26/23
They’ve been compounding and iterating on the format for years - I went back and soaked in the entire back catalog. What I can say is that right now these guys are in the prime of this show. The formula was good originally, but is just absolutely phenomenal now. The depth and quality they have...Read full review »

Maitre d'Armes via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 04/08/23
Yes, I went all the way back to the first episode after listening to many of the mega awesome multi hour episodes. Great to see the very start of what is a pinned show in my Overcast app. Ben and David are awesome. Keep up the greatness boys.

I am brand new to the podcast (my brother recommended it). I loved the Taylor Swift episode! The Enron one was great too.
