Business Wars

Oct 21 2020 24 mins 30.6k

Netflix vs. HBO. Nike vs. Adidas. Business is war. Sometimes the prize is your wallet or your attention. Sometimes, it’s just the fun of beating the other guy. The outcome of these battles shapes what we buy and how we live. Business Wars gives you the unauthorized, real story of what drives these companies and their leaders, inventors, investors and executives to new heights -- or to ruin. Hosted by David Brown, former anchor of Marketplace. From Wondery, the network behind Dirty John and American History Tellers.

Business Wars is one of my favorite podcasts. The announcer's voice is wonderful! In 6-7 episodes they cover the history of a specific business or group of like businesses in a very professional, objective, and thorough manner. I highly recommend it.

Each "season" only contains about enough material for one long episode and an interview postscript but is dragged out needlessly to fit in as much advertising as content per episode.

Addictive listening. These are all great stories of how companies have battled it out. Expect twists and turns these are well told stories narrated by the team. My favourites include Block Buster v Netflix, the browser wars, Nintendo v Sony, Boeing v Airbus, Cereal Wars and Xbox v Playstation. Keep up the great content.

Excellent storytelling. Makes boring brands exciting by making rivalries sound like eloborate wars.
