What do the most bingeable podcasts of our time -- Dirty John, Dr. Death, Business Wars, and American History Tellers -- all have in common? They are produced by Wondery, the world’s largest independent podcaster, known for its unique niche of immersive Hollywood-style storytelling. Launched in 2016, it became the fastest network to join the Top 10 ranker by Podtrac. Wondery's shows are so entertaining that 20 have reached No. 1 on Apple Podcasts, with many being turned into must-see TV. With $15M in venture capital from high-profile backers, it's projected to surpass $40M in revenue by the end of 2020, a 75% growth from 2019. In the next episode of our "Leadership Lessons" series, Comparably co-founder/CEO Jason Nazar will host a lively conversation with Wondery founder/CEO Hernan Lopez. They will discuss the greatest management lessons Lopez learned, from his nearly 20-year tenure at Fox International Channels to Wondery and its majority ownership by women, LGBT, and people of color. Other topics include:

  • How to determine if you should be an entrepreneur
  • The pursuit of one specific idea in business 
  • How to build a media brand with incredible IP
  • How to cultivate great workplace culture
  • Hiring & recruiting in a COVID-19 world and beyond
  • The best life hacks and most important leadership values
