While "Desperate acts of capitalism" still holds a special place in my heart; when it comes to podcast making fun of rich idiots. Busted business bureau might just be my new favorite podcast. It is hilarious, well researched and has a charm to it you cant find anywhere else.
I’ve been mentally composing my review for a while but Christian accidentally called me out in the last episode lol. This podcast has quickly become my favorite thing in the world. Christian is so funny and does so much research. Everything is so thought out and well composed but the presentation is so very entertaining. All of the guests are great and make it even better. I live alone and this podcast keeps me company, I love it The Monsanto season literally changed my life. I adore everything Christian puts out and anyone considering listening should go for it!
I could go on forever, but Christian is so good at translating their very dense research into palatable, funny, and understandable points. The first episode I listened to was the Washington Commanders episode (I’m a DC native and sports fan). Christian was able to combine objective facts, cultural temperature, and hilarious takes into a very satisfying experience for this Dan Snyder hater. BBB massages my socialist heart and makes my anti-capitalist armor a little stronger, all while laughing the entire time. Great fucking work!
Almost every episode you get a good book recommendation with a lot of good information
this is an awesome podcast!! The host is great and seems very cool. Found it via a friend’s Instagram story when it launched and have enjoyed it ever since❤️
christian is so funny and is so good at research, I’m regularly begging my friends to listen.
After discovering the pod on TikTok, I’ve been a listener ever since. I love the chaotic and fun take on history though the lens of business and every episode manages to get at least one IRL LOL out of me. :)
I highly recommend this podcast if you like true crime without the blood and guts. The host, Christian, is hilarious and charismatic, and so are the guests she brings on. Every episode is exceptionally well-researched and always entertaining.
A friend recommended this podcast and I’m so glad they did! The intersection of research and comedy is my exact k*nk and I listened to the entire series in an unreasonably small time frame. 10/10
I love this podcast! I always get so excited when a new episode shows up in my feed. The episodes are incredibly well researched and sources are cited throughout, which I appreciate. Christian approaches complex topics in a fun, non-judgmental way. I’ve laughed out loud to this podcast many times and would recommend it to everyone- not just the girlies!
I’m convinced that Christian and I would be best friends irl and she’s retweeted me several times so I’m accepting that as canon. Her humor is incredible and the cadence between well-researched, awful facts and light-hearted humor is exactly what I want in a podcast. The Monsanto season was truly remarkable - it was like a Netflix special. I like listening to this podcast while driving or doing chores bc it just feels like friends hangin’ out, laughing, and sharing truly disturbing facts about awful businesses. Fun! 10/10
ngl this is the podcast that got me into podcasts (late i know!) and i’m going to be so sad when i run out of episodes to binge and have to wade the waters of podcasts that aren’t this funny or well-rearched. the chemistry between christian and her guests is so fun and the episodes never make you feel like you could’ve read a wikipedia page and gotten the gist of it. i even recommended this to my mom, who famously hates monsanto, and she thought it was “well researched but a little laughy.” high praise from shannon!
I’ve come to really love this show! The amount of research that goes into these episodes is deep, but the delivery is funny and easy to digest. Idk why, but the episode about rats was so fascinating to me. I love the diverse perspectives that are heard in this space. It’s like a nerdy post-boozy brunch convo with friends. So good.
im sad this is over can you all do more? i enjoy you three +producer a lot <3 idk why i am writing myspace style but ty for informing me on all this horror. DOOOOOD you should do north korea.. just thought of that ok done love it n don’t stop xoxo
Well researched and genuinely funny, this podcast dives into interesting topics and gives them the time they deserve while somehow feeling quick and snappy. It’s a joy to listen to, even for this straight white conservative male !
Each episode is well-researched and hilarious. Listen now! Started with the iO episode and was hooked. Christian is our newest podcast darling!
The music absolutely slaps. Great story telling and research. Thanks for making my commute fun and informative!
If you enjoy Adam Ruins Everything, Cold Fusion, Tom Scott, and Conan O’Brien Needs a Friend, with just a sprinkle of female gaze, there’s something for you in this podcast! Each episode covers a topic or company that’s niche and specific, but along the way, Christian hilariously and thought-provokingly tears through the sticky ugly goofy side of American big business.
This show is fascinating and makes me laugh with horror every episode.
I love this show! I binged this in a week and can’t wait for more episodes to come out. Well researched, funny, eye opening and just a little bit chaotic.
Just a great idea for a show, well researched and explained. Can’t wait for more.
This is fantastic. I love good conversations about really interesting and informative topics where the humor is natural and isn’t forced. You’ll come away from every episode shocked at these random institutions that have been around forever but few have done deep dives about. More episodes PLEASE.
Seriously, I LOVE when a podcast is both super entertaining AND leaves me learning something new. This is a great combination of engaging storytelling and casual conversation - Christian really makes me feel like I’m part of the action. Great topics and even better hosting!
Christian is so good at distilling huge amounts of info into an engaging, 60 minute time frame. She is so fun, her guests are so fun, this podcast is so fun. Listen on in!
Honest to god, this show is so fun, informational, and interesting. Christian does an amazing job hosting and researching, and I really feel like they have fun in the studio. Do yourself a favor and subscribe to this!
Great addition to my addiction!! Looking forward to the 100th episode. Pod on!!!!!
