The Spectacular Rise and Fall of WeWork

The Daily

aliceko

I never understood why WeWork was considered a tech company - they were also a real estate company. This is a great less-than-30 min episode that takes you through a succinct journey of WeWork, its ousted founder Adam Neumann, how the once 'tech' darling crumbled, and the sad consequences for its employees. How did the Board approve that much in consulting fees for Neumann is beyond me.

Anybody who is considering having a child at some point in their lives should listen to this. As someone who has been on long waitlists for fertility clinics (thanks MSP), almost went through with egg freezing herself & probably has at least 1 conversation per week with a woman about fertility/egg freezing - this topic is important. The egg freezing conversation starts ~ 25 minutes. Dr. Caitlin Dunne discusses social egg freezing, why MSP (BC health insurance) and/or employers should cover egg freezing treatment as employment benefits (I agree - I'm impressed that Ontario covers 1 cycle of egg freezing!), the best age to freeze your eggs (I was surprise by Dr. Dunne's answer of 34!), and why everybody should have a shot at a child. I also wanted to clarify - the cost is definitely more than $10k CAD, at least the last time I checked. Also crucial is making sure people understand WHY some women need to freeze their eggs: some may have not met the right partner, or may have a health condition. I'm impressed that Mo covered this topic on his podcast. First of all, it's rare for a man to be interested yet alone somewhat curious about the topic of fertility and egg freezing. Thanks for thinking outside the box and bringing genuine curiosity to this important topic to the masses. For your consideration as “Best Podcast of the Year”, I am tagging @podcastplaylist!

I am putting this geat episode forward for podcast of the year because it gave me the courage to talk about freezing my eggs with my partner! The deep instinct to have children is so stigmatized but this conversation was so non judgemental and informative. I came away with a wealth of knowledge and ...Show More
