Episode 91: Trendsetting vs. trend chasing

James Mulholland joins Jen to delve into what spurs the beginning of trends, and what happens when people chase them. From books to movies to TV shows (plus books becoming movies or TV shows), there’s no shortage of fads that provided increasingly diminished returns as the companies and creators behind them had less to bring to the table with each iteration.

And once someone has, how many more bolts can be caught the same way?
