Welcome to the 139th episode of the Inc. Uncensored podcast, hosted by Inc. editor James Ledbetter.

This week, staff writer Zoë Henry discusses how businesses are responding to widespread allegations of sexual harassment and assault on the part of movie mogul Harvey Weinstein. Even as many companies are taking actionable steps to make their women employees feel heard, empowered and validated--hosting "empathy workshops," or committing to hiring more women at the executive level--others that do business with the Weinstein Company are grappling with the losses they'd incur by severing ties.

Then, executive director of editorial Jon Fine discusses the lengths that cities across the country have gone in their bid accommodate Amazon's second headquarters. Tactics have involved the gifting of a giant cactus, and the offer of major tax breaks. (Fine's money is on Atlanta; Henry's is on Philadelphia.)

Reporter Emily Canal takes you back to the first season of Shark Tank, and explains what dozens of contestants learned from their time on the show nearly a decade ago--well before it accrued the fan base it has now.

As always, you can listen to individual episodes of the Inc. Uncensored podcast on the Panoply Network or on Apple Podcasts, where you can also subscribe.
