Whether they’re a current shining star, in the midst of a massive dumpster fire or settling into the dust heap of history, iconic companies all have a past worth knowing. Bizography hosts Dana Barrett and Nick Bean dive into their strange but true stories. Some are inspiring, some get our blood boiling and some show just how weird American consumers truly are.
Dana Barrett is a former tech executive, entrepreneur, and award-winning TV & Radio host who has interviewed thousands of business leaders over the course of her career. After hosting a tech focused TV show on Atlanta’s NBC affiliate, and a business talk radio show for 5 years, Dana moved over to iHeart’s Talk Radio 640 WGST where she hosts a daily talk radio show focused on news and current events. Her passion for ethics and diversity in business drive her interest in the stories of iconic businesses. She’s fascinated by the secret sauce that made them great, and the pivotal moments that made them iconic or sent them to the trash heap of history.
Nick Bean is a Radio Producer and proud Atlanta native. After growing up across Metro Atlanta, Nick worked a number of blue-collar jobs after graduating from high school.
