In this week’s episode, host Rob Long begins with the story of a just-fired executive forced to drive all over town to apologize for his bad behavior while he was in the seat — and thus offers up a parable on power in the entertainment industry, and the links between screamers, show consulting, Stanford, seniority, status and ultimately, Stalin’s chair. After posing the question of whether you are Team Psychopath or Team Fawn, our host then ends on an executive offsite where a Big Bad Boss reveals maybe too much.
