Spectacular Failures
Corporate crookedness. Family feuding. Hilariously half-baked decisions. Host Lauren Ober tackles some of the most spectacular business failures of all time, and what could have been done to avoid them. Some of these stories are shocking. Some are funny.

From American Public Media and the Carlson School of Management at the University of Minnesota.
