EP 172 - Rich Roll
Welcome to the Pretty Intense Podcast. Today I get to be told by my guest that my questions are "pretty intense". The guest today is Rich Roll, and I went on Rich Roll's show when I was promoting my book called Pretty Intense, back in 2018. I did 3 shows: Rich Roll, Lewis Howes and Joe Rogan. I really didn't even know what a podcast was back then. By doing those podcasts, I fell in love with the them, and I thought that's a really fun format. I love going deep and I have energy for that. Rich Roll in an ultra endurance athlete, and he is the author of many books including " Finding Ultra." Rich is also a motivational speaker and the host of the incredibly popular Rich Roll Podcast. What do two podcasters talk about? We talked about life's challenges. We talked about his story for a change. How he has accomplished the things he has done. Transformations. Surviving addiction. Then we just riffed on life. What's going to solve the world's problems? We hope you enjoy the show, and learn a few of Rich's tips on how to change the world for the better.


Simply put, Rich Roll is a change agent. At age 40, Rich made the decision to overhaul the sedentary throes of overweight middle age. Walking away from a career in law, he reinvented himself as a globally recognized ultra-distance endurance athlete, bestselling author, and host of the wildly popular Rich Roll Podcast, one of the world’s most listened to podcasts with over 200 million downloads. Named one the “25 Fittest Men In The World” by Men’s Fitness and the “Guru of Reinvention” by Outside, Rich shares his inspirational story of addiction, redemption, athletic prowess, and authentic living in his bestselling memoir, Finding Ultra, and in the cookbook and lifestyle guides The Plant power Way and The Plant power Way: Italia, which he co-authored with his wife Julie Piatt. A graduate of Stanford University (and member of their dynastic, multiple NCAA Championship Men’s Swimming program) and Cornell Law School, Rich has been featured on CNN and on the cover of Outside magazine, and has been profiled in The New York Times, Forbes, ESPN and many other prominent media outlets.
