Critic Rating

Go For Broke is a podcast series about historic bubbles, the irrational enthusiasm that creates them, and the lessons we’ve learned (and the ones we haven’t) when they pop.In our first season, we’re examining the original dot-com bubble. From the meteoric rise of Netscape to the stunning fall of Pets.com, we'll explore how venture capital money and stock market speculation, combined with the beginnings of Internet commerce, led to trillions of dollars created and lost — seemingly overnight.From Epic Magazine and the Vox Media Podcast Network.

"There are enlightening facts and stories about the technology industry that will draw your attention. It is interesting to learn about the rise of the Internet, which is something that we take for granted today.
