A Case of the Mondays
People WANT to believe (w/ Bethany McLean)
Show Notes

On today's show, Chris sits down with Bethany McLean for a wide-ranging interview, spanning growing up on the Iron Range in Minnesota, to her career as a business writer and how her time in the heady days of business magazines built her skepticism of the corporate world, and led her to be one of the premier chroniclers of corporate malfeasance.

Then, we hear Just One Thing about a company who's helping their employees achieve that ever-elusive work-life balance.

Chris also talks villains, both on the screen and in the boardroom.
