I really enjoyed listening to Jeff Bezos’s story, it was informative, engaging and very interesting. Most importantly they showed or try to show both sides of the coin. Thank you, it was well told and really interesting!

Unfortunately it lacks more in-depth content.

I love this podcast series. Such great stories and insights about Amazon. For the record, I’m a big fan and happy customer of Amazon. I also am a fan of Jeff Bezos. We may not like some of his approach but he and the Amazon team literally invented cloud computing, and I don’t think they get as...Read full review »

While the Amazon season provides interesting insight into Jeff Bezos’s hand in Amazon’s rise to extreme market domination at all costs, it lacks in several aspects. I was quite surprised the podcast makes no mention of the antitrust litigation (previous and pending) against Amazon’s marketplace....Read full review »

I’ve listened to Tik Tok and Amazon and I’ve been impressed with both seasons and their hosts. It feels as unbiased as it gets by expounding on the achievements without dismissing the controversies.
jconrad622 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/15/22
The compelling initial revelations of the extent of Amazon’s ruthless attitude towards the people whose unacknowledged phenomenal hard work made it all succeed just trickles off into trite, repetitive cliches about what a selfish guy Bezos is. Should have carried that initial compelling approach...Read full review »

The narrator of the Amazon season seems to have forgotten everything stormy Daniels said was found to be made up

Love the Amazon story podcast! Brad Stone makes it a friendly listening podcast. And fabulous reporting too

Awesome show, I hope a lot of people listen. I’ve been a mail carrier for 15 years and Amazon has ruined the post office.

Aside from the always interesting stories of such founders, I love the deep journalism done around the podcast. It gives more consistency and authenticity to the story.

Love this show! I don’t miss an episode.

One of the best shows out there. Great writing, great hosts, great music.
hhhehhuuuuueu via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/25/22
Listening to season one and I don’t understand why she hates Adam so much. I don’t know the guy maybe I should hate him too but she never gives me reasons. She just talks about what a jerk he is… but not obvious things. “Oh he said the right things but didn’t mean it” how does she know? Seems...Read full review »

I listened to episodes 1 and 2 and the story is very impressive. Amazon is the company that has the greatest impact on our lives today. I want to know how this company is run, the story behind the scenes, especially the working environment of the employees, and how they feel. I will definitely...Read full review »

Offers great insight into modern issues/topics

I hate TikTok I wanna go back in the old days groovy songs retro stuff no it’s depression and simps and social media addictions I’m on a Phonè cause they don’t sell old phones as much anymore not hate just please I’m waiting.☎️
Mrs.GAMERCORN🦄📱💻 via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 01/16/22
Yeah, I definitely want to listen to other stories about this sort of thing. Update: The TikTok season was great. Also, way better than WeWork.
rosa manzo via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/25/21
Interesting topic but very slanted towards tiktok. Has a school girl crush feel to it. Some moderate criticism of privacy and child abuse issues but more glowing reviews of the founders than I would expect from real journalism.
maginelly via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/30/21
Mostly child exploitation apologist, Trump hating, and China loyalist to the communist party.
yourmomsbreastaresoft via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/09/21
The Tik Tok season is very interesting!! (I’m a millennial, I don’t use Tik Tok…… yet)😂😅
Anya# via Apple Podcasts · Israel · 06/08/21
Not everything has to be about President Trump...
Khirstin via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/25/21
I listened to the entire series on TikTok; fantastic reporting. I was expecting lob sided reporting since it’s a Chinese company being reported by American media, but I will say, it is more or less balanced and fair. Quite informative too, good job Shelly Banjo, Shawn Wen and the team at BBG 👍🏼

I never wrote a comment but this podcast tells funder story very well. This is worked, there is a voice over and you hear extract of radio, interview, television. It's from the same quality than npr (Ted radio and whobuiltthis) but with a special touch (They bring you with the characters...Read full review »

A fascinating look at one of the most transformative companies of our generation. Shelly knocks it out of the park. Amazing look at the history and insightful view on what might come next!
Db71186 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/09/21
I feel like TikTok’s dark side is something everyone knows about, but no one acknowledges, and it bothers me. Such an amazing series, I love the direction that Shelly and the team are going. Keep exposing what needs to be exposed. No one better to team up with than Dawn!
UntotheLamb via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/07/21
Sounds like an ad for the companies.
Max Milne via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 05/05/21
Perfect balance of excellent reporting and great story telling. Shelly Banjo clearly knows what she is talking about, and the presentation is so artful and well-edited. I’m now waiting in suspense for episode 4 to come out!
Dorit PL via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/03/21
Host Shelly Banjo provides incredible insight into the story behind TikTok. The storytelling hooks you and develops beautifully. Shelly had a way of weaving together the characters masterfully. The sound editing is fantastic, as well. I can’t wait for the next episode!
Ashley Ultican via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/29/21
Foundering has been a truly eye-opening podcast. I thought I knew a bit about TikTok. I get sent videos every so often or I’ll hear about it in a celebrity story. But, I barely knew any of what I heard in these first two tantalizing episodes. There is so much behind this worldwide phenomenon that...Read full review »

it’s crazy to hear about the work going into apps like tiktok and musically. it truly did feel like a random, one hit wonder app, but i guess it wasn’t at all! especially crazy to hear about the tiktok stars who have become insanely famous

For all the money and leverage Bloomberg has this is pretty weak. Maybe it will get better over time..
aidgas via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 04/27/21
I love this style of storytelling. i didn’t know anything about TikTok beyond the headlines and this was awesome. Can’t wait to hear the rest

One of the most informative podcasts out there!!! Thank you!

So glad I found this podcast. Completely addictive
Nikskinik via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 04/10/21
I worked for this ridiculous company for 3 years, she nails the reporting, but it was actually even crazier than she got into. The amount of money wasted was spectacular, they rented MSG for 3 days & flew the entire company to NY so that the narcissistic execs could feed their egos. Also...Read full review »

For what little I knew about the Fall of the WeWork IPO, I wasn’t sure what to expect of the Foundering podcast. Having binged all of the episodes in less than 2 days, I was pleasantly surprised. A. By the amount of quality content involving people who experienced and suffered for dealing with...Read full review »

Ellen, bravissima. Congratulations on your podcast. It’s really good.
Paolots12 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/29/20
There is so much good, juicy stuff about this company that I never knew! You can’t make this stuff up! Phenomenal story.
LauraGallupNY via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/09/20
Somebody has to make a movie about this! I mean, this company exemplifies all of what’s wrong with the new era of entrepreneurship and business. Somewhere in there between the Monday tequila and printer getting thrown across the room, I was hooked!
CamLived via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/25/20
Just listened to the We Work podcasts and its excellent! No over the top hyperbole, just a brilliant story, well told :-)
