Our Editor's Take

The 2008 financial crisis may have inspired the founding of WeWork. The WeCrashed podcast is for listeners who want to know more. Co-founder Adam Neumann and his partners saw workers in the "gig economy" would need places to work. And they'd want places to hang out and connect as well. WeWork offered a way for entrepreneurs and freelancers to connect. Individuals could rent a desk or office space for as long as they wanted. Their space came with networking, social activities, and snacks. And everything was smooth until it all came crashing down. David Brown dives into the dream that led to the Apple+ TV series starring Jared Leto and Anne Hathaway. His in-depth interviews reveal the real egos and flawed plans behind WeWork's big flop. Do you want more? NYU business professor Scott Galloway talks to WeCrashed's cast, crew, and experts. The incomparable co-host of The Pivot and Professor G dives into how the TV series captured the story. He also talks with former WeWork employees. If you can't get enough of the rise and fall of WeWork, Galloway's episodes are the cherry on top. read less
