On this week's podcast, Inc.'s writers discuss the startup ecosystem--which, after a decade-long boom, is facing a massive reckoning.

Inspired by an article in The New York Times earlier this week, Brit Morse looks back at predictions Inc. has made, and developments it has observed in recent months--and offers some steps entrepreneurs can take now to avoid the crippling problems some companies are facing this year.

Plus, Cameron Albert-Deitch reports, when a government agency needs a sign language interpreter, they rely on this woman, who has 300 of them on call.

Finally, this past weekend New York City was host to a kid's paradise, featuring the debut of every new toy that will be on their holiday lists in nine months. Only...it wasn't for kids. Anna Meyer takes us inside the entrepreneurial stories from the New York Toy Fair.
