One Plus One
About the Podcast
What happens when two geniuses meet? How do great duos -- like the Beatles' Lennon and McCartney, or Google's Larry Page and Sergey Brin -- manage to change the world together? What about when the sparks start to fly? Every great collaboration is a love story. It’s intense. Passionate. Along the way, there’s flashes of love, hate, pride, ego, ambition, and brilliance. From Wondery, the company behind the hit podcasts "Business Wars" and "American Scandal," comes ONE PLUS ONE, an ongoing series about the fascinating stories of two great minds coming together to accomplish something they never could on their own. In each series, hosts Rico Gagliano (Safe for Work) and Faith Salie (CBS' Sunday Morning) will bring you the ups and downs of the world's greatest collaborations, and what listeners can learn from these pairs in their own work and life relationships.
