Education Podcasts >

You can't be a legend without some losing (tm). Legends & Losers is not for everyone. This podcast is the opposite of highly edited “interview shows” that spoon-feed talking points, fabricated narratives or quick tips. It is one of the few real, raw, long-form, authentic "dialogue podcasts". It feels like eavesdropping on a surprisingly candid, insightful, no-BS and free-range conversation about life and business. And it's fun. Legends & Losers delivers a remarkable-range of riveting guests from Silicon Valley’s top entrepreneurs, marketers, and venture capital leaders, to 4-Star Generals, NBA Hall of Famers, Super Bowl Champs, UFC Champs, best selling authors, convicted killers, superior court judges and some of the leading ass-kickers in the world. Host Christopher Lochhead is coAuthor of Harper Collins’ “instant classic” Play Bigger, a former entrepreneur and three-time Silicon Valley public company CMO, who has a whisky soaked mind that keeps you engaged and entertained.
