Welcome to the 201th episode of the Inc. Uncensored podcast, hosted by Inc.'s editor in chief, James Ledbetter.

In this special year-end episode, we look back at three of our favorite segments from 2018. Staff writer Will Yacowicz discusses his feature on Marcus Lemonis, the CEO of Camping World and the star of CNBC's reality TV show "The Profit." While the show has captured Lemonis helping many entrepreneurs turn their struggling small businesses around, many founders who appeared on program alleged that Lemonis took advantage of them in one way or another.

Senior writer Christine Lagorio-Chafkin discusses her book We Are The Nerds, which chronicles the birth of Reddit and how it became a hub for culture and social media behavior.

Lastly, I talk about my months-long research to quantify the so-called Shark Tank effect, and what an appearance on the hit ABC reality show is worth to entrepreneurs.
