    Introducing: 9/12

    How did 9/11 the day become 9/11 the idea? That question drives award-winning host Dan Taberski (Missing Richard Simmons, Running From COPS, The Line) to shift his focus to what happened on 9/12, and every day after that. 9/12 is a poignant, surprising, and surprisingly funny seven episode series about people who wake up on 9/12 having to navigate a new, radically altered world. A teenager gets caught up in an out-of-control conspiracy theory that he helped start. A Pakistani business owner finds hundreds of his Brooklyn neighbors are disappearing. Joke-writers at The Onion must figure out just how soon is “too soon”? 9/12 asks what it all means. We know what happened on 9/11. But what happened on 9/12 to alter our memory and our perspective forever? Listen to 9/12: wondery.fm/9_12_SecretSauce All seven episodes of 9/12 are available to stream now on Amazon Music or Wondery+. Episodes will release weekly everywhere starting September 8th.

    The Secret Sauce of Warren Buffett | Ingredient #2: Build Your Arsenal | 2

    Warren Buffett’s hit the jackpot. He’s a millionaire at the ripe old age of 32. Warren’s built a name for himself through his honesty, and he’s learning how to bring his business values into his activism and vice versa. And although he’s become an altruistic and trustworthy money-handler, he’s still prone to spurts of anger and rash decisions. A business relationship gone awry leads to Warren making his biggest mistake yet - buying a failing textile company. To make the company profitable, Warren will need to create a business model no one has ever seen before. Listen ad free with Wondery+.

    The Secret Sauce of Warren Buffett | Ingredient #1: Trusting Your Inner Scorecard | 1

    Warren Buffett, like most hyper-successful business people, wasn't born a billionaire. Buffett was born during the Great Depression and watched his country suffer financially. At an early age, the business magnate begins studying financial trends and pinches pennies on his way to becoming one of the world’s wealthiest people. But his interest in the stock market doesn’t cement his success. Warren isn’t the best student, and he most certainly isn’t winning any popularity contest. To grow his own money, he must first find a way to get people to trust him and view him as a long-term investment. Listen ad free with Wondery+.

    The Secret Sauce of Jony Ive | Interview with Steven Levy | 4

    When Steve Jobs returned to Apple as Interim CEO in 1997, the company was in need of a big win. Over the next decade, Apple and Jobs would launch some of the most innovative and successful products to have ever come out of Silicon Valley. But Jobs couldn’t have pulled off the iMac, iPod and iPhone without his young superstar designer Jony Ive. Few journalists have more insight into the legendary creative partnership of Ive and Jobs than WIRED Magazine’s Editor at Large, Steven Levy. Levy has covered technology for more than 30 years and got to know Ive and Jobs over several interviews spanning decades. He joins Secret Sauce to discuss what made the pair so successful, Ive’s legacy, and perhaps Ive’s last great gift to Apple: the design of its new headquarters, Apple Park.

    The Secret Sauce of Jony Ive | Ingredient #3: Legacy | 3

    Apple has become a product goldmine with the success of the iMac and iPod, but Jony and Steve refuse to stop there. Jony Ive believes that he can do for phones what the iMac did for computers. And if he does that, it’ll secure the legacy of his collaboration with his best friend, Steve Jobs. The only problem is Jony's design requires materials that aren't on the marketplace, and Steve's health is declining rapidly. In his final act, Jony will have to find a way to honor Apple's vision — a vision that has changed how the world interacts with technology and that he helped design. Listen ad free with Wondery+.
