Hey Product Hunt! πŸ‘‹ @krisborghesan and I started The Art of the Fail podcast to have long form conversations with entrepreneurs and other interesting people about their journeys in a very raw anecdotal context. We think the podcast helps folks remove the fear or stigma of getting started (doing anything) by seeing that it takes many failures & fuck ups to realize success..but at the very least, we hope it's entertaining... πŸ˜… This started as a passion project for Kris and I, but like most, we're looking to kick it up a notch and make it better. Would love some real, honest and unfiltered feedback if you get a chance to check out any of the episodes! And if it happens to resonate we'd be grateful if you showed us ❀️ by leaving a rating & review on iTunes πŸ™
@krisborghesan @chrisbuttenham great show guys, continue to produce amazing content and genuine conversations with entrepreneurs who have been through the many trials and tribulations. Looking forward to your next season!
@planswelleric appreciate that! πŸ‘Œ @chrisbuttenham and myself had a blast interviewing you for the season 1 ender. We might just have to do a follow up episode ;)
@krisborghesan @planswelleric thanks for the support, Eric! Had a blast doing our interview. I'll never forget your story filled with all the crazy startups you tried πŸ˜‚

No one really talks about their failures online. As entrepreneurs, we hear many success stories but never know about the struggle and mistakes that accompany it.

One would think talking about failure would be awkward...nope! The hosts are absolutely charming and ensure the guests are comfortable sharing their stories.

I'm excited for more episodes and seasons Chris and Kristian :)


Very real & raw! Hosts are super cool and have interviewed influential entrepreneurs. The conversations are deep and thought provoking.


None - give it a listen! It's unlike any other podcast.

Thanks so much for the feedback, @saroshaimtiaz ! πŸ™

I subscribe to about 8 or 10 podcasts, but this is one of the few that I always make time to listen to. Chris and Kristian are more than just a couple of stud-muffins that are easy on the eyes (for all you single ladies and gents out there - another reason to make time for the YouTube version of the show), they're like two old business souls using this podcast as a vessel for delivering the wisdom they've collected on their journey though the ups and downs of entrepreneurship. These guys share the far less glamorous parts of being an entrepreneur, but remind us of all the reasons why so many of us just have to give it a try.


Guests have diverse business backgrounds and the guys ask intelligent questions. The format is good and the sound quality has been solid.


I'd like to hear some more rapid-fire or word-association type questions to the guests from the hosts.

You're the man, @pdanny !

I would definately reccommend this podcast to aspiring entrepreneurs. Also, even if you are a fellow 9-5er valueable lessons can still be learned. The guys are light and funny at appropriate times tp keep the conversation fun and easy to listen to.


Great business talk that keeps it real. I'm really impressed with the chemistry of the hosts.


I wish the content was daily, I would consume it all!

Thanks for the awesome review and comment, Chris! Glad you're digging the content and episodes we're putting out - Season 3 will be nothing short of that and we can't wait for it to start!
Such an under-rated podcast! It's always a treat to hear some real entrepreneur stories, struggles, and wins, that you can actually relate to. If you're stuck in the silicon valley bubble smelling your own farts and relying on TechCrunch for your idea of what success is, this podcast is definitely for you! 😁
@alexsopinka thank you my man! Appreciate all of your support with the podcast since @chrisbuttenham and myself started it! πŸ™πŸ”₯
@alexsopinka can't live without your unfiltered feedback, brotha. Thanks for the support as always πŸ’ͺπŸ™
