Hi there, podpals!
Every great collaboration is a love story. It’s intense. Passionate. Along the way, there’s flashes of love, hate, pride, ego, ambition, and brilliance. Think: Jay-Z and Beyonce. Google’s Sergei Brin and Larry Page. Lenin and Trotsky. The Lakers’ Shaq and Kobe. From Wondery, the company behind the hit podcast “Business Wars,” comes ONE PLUS ONE, an ongoing series about what happens when two geniuses come together to do something they could never accomplish on their own. In each six-episode series, hosts Rico Gagliano (Safe for Work) and Faith Salie (CBS’ This Morning) will bring you the ups and downs of the world’s greatest and most dramatic collaborations. And they will look at some key questions: Why does creative tension often spark something magical? And what can we learn from these stories to help with our own life and work partnerships?
If you listened to our September 28 episode, then you know that this show covers the relationships between a very wide range of collaborators—from Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera, to Kobe and Shaq, to Kim and Kris Kardashian. And honestly, that’s what makes this show so special!
On our episode, I also gushed about another fantastic Wondery podcast called Imagined Life—if you love immersive storytelling that isn’t exactly fictional, then give it a try! You won’t regret it.
