Description

Behind every successful business is a story. It starts with a vision and a leap of faith. Along the way, leaders make bold decisions, ride booms and busts, and sometimes, they reach new heights. From Wondery, the makers of the hit series Business Wars, and Lindsay Graham, the host of American History Tellers and American Scandal, comes a weekly podcast that brings you the true stories of the brilliant but all-too-human businesspeople who risked it all. From Walt Disney’s creation of a theme park in Orlando, to the colossal failure of New Coke, Business Movers will explore the triumphs, failures and ideas that transformed our lives.

With the help of a former World War Two spy named Paul Helliwell, Walt Disney fights to keep Project Future out of the papers as he navigates a local labyrinth of closed door deals, nosy politicians and intrepid reporters. But Walt’s biggest secret isn’t Project Future—it’s a private battle he’s fighting with his own body.
