Cass Phillipps, global producer of FailCon, joins guest host Mary McKenna to discuss FailCon, a conference for technology entrepreneurs, investors, developers, and designers to study their own and others' failures and prepare for success. FailCon is produced in more than a dozen cities on six continents. The next conference is in San Francisco on October 24, 2014.

FailCon was started in San Francisco in 2009 as a response to events repeatedly highlighting only success, while providing no guidance or safe spaces for failure.
