I'm having so much fun listening to this podcast! It's a great start with interesting facts about some wild, crazy flop. If I want to do a deep dive, I am perfectly primed for more! Love the host's delivery and humor!

Very fun! It's not a serious deep dive packed with details, but it's funny and informative. I've laughed out loud while hearing about well-known and new-to-me flops. Well-produced, funny host and guests.

Thought it was going to go more into the history and catastrophe of these products. I don't want to hear people giving their opinions on these things.


Fyre Fest goes up in flames, Ashlee Simpson bombs on SNL, and somehow even Taylor Swift couldn’t fix the ill-fated Cats movie. Who doesn’t love a good fiasco?! Join us each week as we dissect the most deliciously disastrous flops in recent history. On Wondery’s comedy & pop culture series The Big Flop, host and TikTok superstar Misha Brown unpacks all-time epic fails from Crystal Pepsi to Google Glass with the help of hilarious, highly-opinionated guests in every episode.

Find out what happens when massive hype turns into a major fiasco, and join us as we try to answer the age-old question...Who thought THIS was a good idea?!New episodes come out every week.

Listen to The Big Flop early and ad-free on Wondery+.
