Episode 63 Junyong Pak Quits and a Double Dose of De Sena


Wed, 21 Aug 2013 23:29:42 +0000


Episode 63-Joe De Sena was on CNBC this morning, you can watch the clip here. I was under the impression that it would be an intelligent conversation about OCR, the growth of the sport, and/or sponsorship dollars. It was not. This gave me a great excuse to call Joe and talk about anything that changed since we last spoke about the big Vermont race. I also wanted to see how he thought the CNBC piece went. Please listen very close to the end of the first segment with Joe for some sage advice.

I was already planning to air interviews which had taken place just days after the Death Race ended. So, lucky you, you get a double dose of Joe De Sena on today’s podcast.

You will also hear from Junyong Pak. Pak is best known for being the 2X World’s Toughest Mudder. He is also a previous Death Race finisher. It came as a surprise to many when he quit this year’s Death Race about 12 hours before it ended. I ask him what happened and if he ever plans on doing the DR again.

Today’s episode is brought to you by Man Games. Their amazing first event takes place Sept 6 and 7th.
