Death, defeat, schadenfreude, and the Great Molasses Flood: FAILURE

From explorers who never made it home to wing suits that did not fly, stock market bubbles that nearly destroyed countries to the sticky sweet death of the Boston Molasses Flood, failure is success’ evil twin, and the fear that can keep one from trying.

Join us for stories of failure both inspiring and heartbreaking as we explore the power of defeat and the consequences of our risk-averse society, and look into the psychology behind our delight in the failure of others and why we are all jerks by nature.
