What’s the best / juiciest piece of corporate gossip that didn’t make the cut? Why are your seasons so short? I would pay for a subscription to get a weekly episode until the end of time! I'm a final year student in finance and I'm worried I have made a terrible mistake studying this degree, as it seems that corporations mostly cause more harm than [good], and benefits an elite few. is there any field you would recommend where I could use my degree for good? Is there a way that finance can be a force for good? Given the intricate web of corporate scandals involving entities like FTX, McKinsey, Koch Industries, SVB, etc. I'm curious to know: What common threads or distinct patterns have you observed across these cases, and how do these scandals reflect broader issues within the corporate landscape? Have there been any surprising twists or unique aspects in these stories that stand out to you guys, providing deeper insights into the world of corporate misconduct 18:00 - Chobani's Anti CEO  Links:  The Profile Dossier: Hamdi Ulukaya, the Shepherd-Turned-Billionaire CEO Chobani CEO says pulling IPO was one of the best decisions company has made Chobani hired hundreds of refugees at its plants.

In 2017 Carlos Ghosn was on top of the world, he was a Japanese national hero, renowned for bringing Nissan back to life from the brink of failure. His face was on the cover of magazines, his story was depicted in Manga, he even carried the torch at the Olympics in his home country of Brazil. His sudden arrest in 2018 for financial crimes was an unexpected twist in his story that made him the center of international intrigue. As extraordinary as his life had become, no one could have imagined what would come next...  Pictures & links on our substack Support the pod by buying us a coffee Check out our reading list  Follow us on youtube, instagram, and tiktok Hosts: Becca Platsky (Becca@nitetoast.com) Adam Platsky (Adam@nitetoast.com)  Produced by: Michael Albanese @bigmanmike Timestamps:  5:40 - CG#1: Carlos Ghosn joins the growing number of wayward CEOs with daddy issues  9:15 - CG#2:  Meet carlos’s car daddy: Francois Michilin  17:40 - CG#3: It’s time for Carlos’ Makover montage!  31:25 - CG#4: Carlos Ghosn enters his dwight schrute era 36:50 - CG#5: Ghosn follows the CEO playbook - time for an ostentatious company sponsored personal party that definitely will have no negative PR implications whatsoever 49:00 - CG#6: All Partied out!!  52:33 - CG#7: What do they say?

Becca is joined by Corporate Gossip startup correspondent Aaron Cohn to dip our tube-socked toes into the FTX trial. We meet Sam Bankman-Fried (SBF), a rumpled 28-year-old-grown-adult-boy-genius who built a $40 billion crypto empire in less than three years. But his meteoric rise to crypto kingpin was followed quickly by his fall to the bottom of shit-coin mountain.  And now, SBF is facing up to 115 years in federal prison for fraud.  Check "build a website" off your to-do list with realnice website builder!  Pictures & links on our substack Support the pod by buying us a coffee Check out our reading list  Follow us on youtube, instagram, and tiktok Hosts: Becca Platsky (Becca@nitetoast.com) Adam Platsky (Adam@nitetoast.com)  Produced by: Michael Albanese @bigmanmike Timestamps:  17:40 - Corporate Gossip #1: Sam Bankman Fried raises $420.69m from 69 founders in a “meme” funding round and raises zero red flags 33:45 - Corporate Gossip #2: This guy can’t be a criminal… I mean, come on, have you ever seen a criminal in wrinkly cargo shorts??? 45:00 -  Corporate Gossip #3:  To the moon!  50:00 - Corporate Gossip #4: FTX: Fraud on top of shit mountain  1:09:40 - Corproate Gossip #5: When people stop being polite, and start getting indicted 1:13:30 - Corporate Gossip #6: Will the Smol bean / Widdle baby defense work for Sam?
A very haunted episode of the Corporate Gossip Podcast! Becca and adam talk about the House of Villains that is Pacific Gas and Electric. The collection of CEOs that have lead the utility company over the past two decades are are more dubious than Omarosa and more dimwitted than Jax Taylor.

It’s hard to talk about corporate gossip without talking about McKinsey. They're everywhere! They advise the biggest companies in every industry in practically every company in America (90% of the Fortune 100 companies use Mckinsey). From Las Vegas Casinos to the Vatican, McKinsey consultants, armed with their Thinkbooks and Tumi rollerbags, dispense their advice on maximizing the bottom line under a veil of secrecy. That is until recently, when dogged reporters sifted through thousands of documents made public as part of a series of lawsuits and criminal investigations into the firm. Becca and Adam read through it all and are bringing you the juiciest stories. They find out that when it comes to systemic corporate malfeasance, McKinsey isn’t the one who lit the match, but they’re often found fanning the flames.

This is part two of a two part episode.  This week, Billy Koch turns into a corporate vigilante, as he takes the Department of Justice and the FBI on a private tour of the grounds where all the Koch corporate secrets are buried. We then tell the story of courtroom fight as dramatic as a Beverly Hills housewives reunion, with siblings rehashing decades-old conflicts and clawing at their share of billions of dollars. Then, Charles Koch continues his campaign to be voted “most-miserly” in the 2008 Billionaire Yearbook by funding an artificial-grassroots organization to promote his libertarian big business-first policies. Meanwhile, Bill Koch’s son Wyatt asks the Sharks to invest $100,000 for a 10% stake in his palm-beach-boroque men’s blouse line.  See the Koch family tree Pictures & links on our substack Support the pod by buying us a coffee Check out our reading list  Follow us on youtube, instagram, and tiktok Hosts: Becca Platsky (Becca@nitetoast.com) Adam Platsky (Adam@nitetoast.com)  Produced by: Michael Albanese @bigmanmike Timestamps:  02:00 - Corporate Gossip #5: Woke up this mornin’ and I got myself some oil from Native American reservations  11:30 - Corporate Gossip #6: Law and Order - Special Boss Bois Unit  21:00 - Corporate Gossip #7: Profit is my religion and regulation is the devil!!   24:15 - Corporate Gossip #8: It's a 45-day plan. 45 days!

Content warning: this episode references child abuse and suicide Ted Turner has more BDE in his pencil mustache than Zuck and Musk combined.  In the span of 5 years he captained a champion sailing yacht through the deadly celtic sea, pulled out an underdog win in the America’s cup, bought two professional sports teams, and created the first ever 24-hour news network: CNN. His life is what LinkedIn Lunatics fantasize about. He created TBS, TNT, TCM, Cartoon Network, AND the iconic environmental superhero cartoon, “Captain Planet.” He is cherished by unproblematic icons Jimmy Carter and Jane Fonda and despised by degenerate psychopath Rupert Murdoch.  Turner disrupted the media industry and spent years on top, but like so many of the characters in our podcast, he couldn’t conquer his inner demons. Deep pain from a traumatic childhood and unaddressed mental health issues destroyed his marriage and threatened his fortune. In this episode, Becca & Adam attempt to trace the life of the chaos cowboy while expertly pronouncing the word "documentary."  Pictures & links on our substack Support the pod by buying us a coffee Check out our reading list  Follow us on youtube, instagram, and tiktok Hosts: Becca Platsky (Becca@nitetoast.com) Adam Platsky (Adam@nitetoast.com)  Produced by: Michael Albanese @bigmanmike Cover art:  Creative director @laurensubers Photographer @danielcanophoto @instajasp Props / Wardobe @__julesrose__ @mellerycellery Makeup / Hair @mardeaubeauty Timestamps:  8:40 - Corporate Gossip #1: In terms of Corporate Villains, David Zaslav, who we’ll discuss next week, is the straight up evil, sociopathic type.

Bonus Episode!!  It's like Jaws if everyone in Jaws worked for Jaws! It's the true story of Rupert Murdoch's main hustle (News Corp) and his side hustle (emotionally and financially manipulating his children). We trace Rupert's (aka RuMu) rise from under the thumb of his father, the original Murdoch Megalomaniac, to become an Australian media mogul. Then, he journeys to the UK and the US, leaving a stinky trail of editorial corruption wherever he goes. Strapped on his back are three of his grown children, Elisabeth, Lachlan, and James, who are pulling and poking at one another as they battle for daddy's treasure: the top spot of the Murdoch Empire!

Enron Rules

Enron Rules

2023-05-0501:26:032

Don't forget to rate and review this podcast!!  This is a true Corporate Gossip Exclusive: The ONLY comparative exploration of Enron and Vanderpump Rules.  On a summer day in 2012 in a restaurant garden in Weho, waitress Schena Shay confronts Housewife Brandi Glanville about the rumors of infidelity surrounding Brandi's husband, Eddie Cibrian. Narratively, this scene breaks the seam between the women of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and the servers who tend to them. And television's crown jewel is born: Vanderpump Rules.   Few know that there was another cosmic seam that ripped at the same moment, and merged two dimensions along thematic parallels: cheating, fraud, topless bars, uppers, women's rights, and women's wrongs. If you're a Vanderpump girlie who wants to get into Enron or an Enron bro who wants to get into Vanderpump - this is ENRON RULES!  We explore the Enron collapse by meeting each of the main players and following them throughout the Enron story. We'll start with the villains who commanded the corporate clusterfuck and then meet the heroes who had the guts to defy them.  This episode also features our DAD! @Jeffplatsky We're on Youtube  Support the pod by buying us a coffee Check out our reading list  Tiktok: @corporategossippod Hosts: Becca Platsky (Becca@nitetoast.com) Adam Platsky (Adam@nitetoast.com)  Produced by: Michael Albanese @bigmanmike Timestamps / Cast of characters:  6:00 - Introducing our DAD, the original corporate gossiper! 10:00ish - The Enron Scandal as told through the eys of the villains and the heroes:  The Villains:  Enron CEO Ken Lay aka Tom Schwartz Enron COO / CEO Jeff Skilling aka Jax Taylor Enron CFO Andy Fastow aka Tom Sandoval Bonus Villain!

A SUPERSIZED EPISODE!! Two pods in one!!!  Jack Welch is our collective Corporate Villain origin story. Potentially the most famous American CEO, Welch, like so many of the leaders we cover on this pod, possesses a dangerous combination of ruthlessness and incompetency.

Boeing is the quintessential american company. For decades it was the destination of choice for America's brightest minds in engineering. Pilots revered the institution, "if it aint Boeing, I'm not going," they'd often say.
