I’m in the Mile High Club!

I always wanted to join, but had no clue the hell I’d have to go¬†through to get there. ūüėČ Rise of the Sufferfests… coming soon to an airline near you!

Sufferfests on the Adam Carolla Show

Comedian Adam Carolla holds a Guinness World Record for the most podcast downloads in history. About a million people tune into each episode of The Adam Carolla Show. So I was obviously psyched to talk bedwetting, ball gags, Bill Cosby, and yes, sufferfests with him. Here’s a link to the episode. The whole episode is […]

Sufferfests on BBC Breakfast

BBC Breakfast, the UK’s biggest morning news program, produced a segment surrounding the 30th anniversary of Tough Guy. The segment features key footage from Rise of the Sufferfests as well as interview clips with Mr. Mouse, James Appleton, Ed Gamester and… yours truly. (Hi Mom!)  

Sufferfests in Men’s Journal

I met Morgan Spurlock!

We went to Sundance in January. Not to show our movie. But to shoot our last interview. I was more or less terrified of interviewing him. It felt like challenging LeBron to a game of one-on-one. That said, he¬†was¬†funny and¬†approachable and¬†had¬†all sorts of interesting things to say about the rise of the sufferfests. Which made […]

Look ma! I’m in ‘Entrepreneur’!

    I’m legitimately honored to be featured in¬†Entrepreneur’s¬†roundup of Top Creatives. Matt Villano’s cover story features a handful of “inventive people” dishing their secrets to success.

STFU: Confessions of a Reluctant HIIT Man

If you happened to read my essay for Outside about quitting a 3-mile obstacle race, you’d know I’m a confessed beta male. Walking off the course was an affront to the Spartan ethos. Fortunately, I have a sense of humor about it. But for a variety of reasons — including the birth of my son […]
