One of my favorite podcasts:

A particularly interesting episode:

We're hard at work planning our upcoming live shows, so we bring you this favorite from the last year: Spanx. At 27, Sara Blakely was selling fax machines and desperate to reinvent her life. So she came up with Spanx — hosiery that eliminates panty lines — and set to work building her business. PLUS in our postscript "How You Built That," we check back with Chandra Arthur of the friend-matching app Friendish, and how it was recently featured on the show, Planet of the Apps.



"I've never sewn, I've never taken a business class in my life. I didn't ... know anybody that worked in fashion or retail." — Sara Blakely, CEO of Spanx Andrew Holder for NPR hide caption
