6 years ago Joe De Sena, founder of Spartan Race, Inc., came to me on a whim and said “maybe we should do a podcast.” We started from 0. No listeners, no show idea, no co-hosts. Today Spartan Up Podcast has over 25 million views and downloads and a stable of 12 amazing hosts.
Our guests have included Sir Richard Branson, Arianna Huffington, Gary Vaynerchuck, Tim Ferriss, Ed Mylette, Ryan Holiday, Mirna Valerio (the Mirnavator), Joe Polish, and literally hundreds of others.
In the last year we've expanded adding new series that take our program of resilience for mind and body to you throughout the week with tips on psychology, resilience, nutrition and more. We also launched the Trail Talk podcast, hosted by Charlie Engle and Luis Escobar, in support of Spartan's trail running series, The Spartan Death Race podcast, and mini-series on Fear, Mindset, holistic health, and endurance.
In 2019 we developed Spartan World Media Fest - an event for podcasters in health, wellness & self improvement.
