About the show

Calling Bullsh!t is a weekly podcast, distributed by iHeart Media, that explores purpose-washing: the gap between what companies say, and what they actually do.

Today, success in business is about transparency and accountability. A new generation of consumers and investors expect companies to back their promises with action.

But—and this is important—being a bullshitter isn’t necessarily a permanent condition. BS is a treatable disease. So when the bullshit detector lights up, we also explore things that the company should do to fix it.

In each episode you’ll hear the story of a purpose-led business that got off track in one way or another. You’ll hear ideas for action from an expert panel to get them back on track.  And you’ll hear three things that you should take away from the episode that you can apply to your business.

We made this podcast for all of us: consumers, business leaders and investors who are trying  to encourage, create and grow better, more sustainable businesses. And hopefully to inspire all leaders with the ways they might make their own organizations better and more successful.
