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 40 million views and downloads and have worked with 17 amazing hosts in addition to Joe De Sena.
Our guests have included Sir Richard Branson, Arianna Huffington, Mark Cuban, Gary Vaynerchuck, Tim Ferriss, Ed Mylette, Ryan Holiday, Mirna Valerio (the Mirnavator), Sebastian Junger, Andrew Huberman, James Nestor and literally hundreds of others.
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.
In 2019 we developed Spartan World Media Fest - an event for podcasters in health, wellness & self improvement.
