Episode 166 - For starters, as promised, its 15 minutes with Carlo and Amelia to talk NFL Championship games. Amelia also expands a little on the whole "enjoying dry needling in her butt" that she eluded to on The Tim Ferris Podcast. For those that hate our football chats, you can fast right the heck forward. For those that love them, enjoy.
The main course on this episode is Jesse Fulton. Jesse was a professional snowboarder for 13 years before going on to coach the Canadian Olympic snowboarding team. He also is one of the founders of 365 Sports.
365's website says that they "Specialize in Event Management, Experiential Marketing, Concept and Development and Brand Execution. We provide creative, fun and innovative athletic events to engage all participants, seasoned athletes and novices alike. We are dedicated to inspiring a healthier, happier society through the combination of fitness and philanthropy"
In other words, they put on cool ass events like ski and snowboard festivals, The Urban Slide, and 5K Foam Fest Canada. 365 was also announced as strategic partner for the OCR World Championships, which is what led to this interview.
Jesse and Matt talk about translating industry knowledge from "action/adventure sports" to OCR, how to launch a brand successfully in Canada that previously failed in the US, and what he and his team are going to bring to OCRWC.

We then have a nice chat with Kyle Railton, better known as Coach from Tough Mudder. He got asked to lead a warm up one morning, and that led to an entire new part of his life. We dig in to find out what he was doing before being tapped by TMHQ, what he's gotten to do as Coach since, and what he's all about when not being Coach. We also spend some time talking about his experience getting 50 miles at November's World's Toughest Mudder.

Episode 163 - If you have ever attended a start line speech. Did you know that he wrote that speech and now Spartan has all of their MC's use some version of it?, you have most likely had Dustin send you off with his
In this episode we learn that Dustin is one of the only current Spartan employees that goes all the way back to 2011. We also learn that he is a self-described nerd, and has been one way before it was cool. You can find him in cosplay costumes at many conventions around the country, acting in television and movies, and visiting kids in character at hospitals.
In this 90 minute plus episode, we talk Spartan, how the start line speech came to be, and how he got into the cosplay world. We also learned how he overcame the initial obstacle of being "too good looking to be a nerd" (their words, not his), and much much more.
Super Spoiler Alert: Matt and Dustin talk about many plot points from The Force Awakens.
