NEW YORK (Fortune)

Each Fortune conference -- from Brainstorm Green, Brainstorm Tech, to the Most Powerful Women Summit, and the Global Forum -- yields fascinating conversations with the best and brightest minds in business.

Fortune wants to make it even easier for you to eavesdrop. The Fortune Brainstorm podcast is a weekly show that features recorded conversations from Fortune's live events.

This week, former Apple (AAPL, Fortune 500) star Ron Johnson was ousted from his role as CEO of J.C. Penney (JCP, Fortune 500). In 2012, Johnson sat down with Fortune senior editor Jen Reingold to discuss his plan to revolutionize the troubled retailer.

As you will hear, Johnson was still gung-ho about his no-sales strategy at J.C. Penney, though he had begun to feel investor pressure. Tune in for this exclusive snapshot of Johnson, who, as Reingold explains, may very well fall somewhere between genius and crazy.
