Afternoon Shift

About

A daily conversation about news, culture and ideas.

Apr. 17, 2012

On Tuesday's Afternoon Shift, we're looking at people, places and things that have far surpassed what they ever thought they could (or what outside forces thought they'd do).

Groupon is a great example of a company that's far outstripped the traditional concept of start-up; TimeOut's Frank Sennett will explain how that company has grown. And author Noam Wasserman of The Founder's Dilemmas asks whether the founder of a successful company should stick with it, or back away...slowly.

And in people: Chris Walla of the band Death Cab for Cutie has first-hand experience of what the process of tiny to big really looked like.

We'll also have our usual look at technology on Tuesday, and the top 3@3 with Nina Metz and Ernest Wilkins.
