Planswell's top 9 favourite Canadian business podcasts - Chris and Kris of The Art of The Fail

1. The Art of The Fail

Okay, we may be a little biased here: our Marketing Manager, Kristian, is one of the hosts! But, this podcast was one of our favourites before Kristian joined our team. In fact, Kristian met Eric recording him as a guest on episode 10 (if you haven’t heard it yet, listen here!).

Too often, we focus on our wins and covering up the times that we’ve missed the mark, or failed completely. This podcast is all about featuring the times that entrepreneurs have failed upwards and learned from their mistakes.

2. I’ll Go First

With most episodes hovering around the 30-minute mark, this Canadian business podcast is great for a lunchtime walk or your morning commute to the office.
