The Industry

The Industry is a podcast that takes a closer look at some of the lesser know (and sometimes intentionally forgotten) stories of Hollywood. Insane productions, scandalous lawsuits, victories from the jaws of defeat (and vice versa), and maybe the occasional crime are the order of the day here. Each episode takes one topic and attempts to answer "What were they thinking?"
