Wondering how the companies behind your favorite products were built? No, we’re not talking about their building’s infrastructure. We’re talking about how the company went from an idea into a multi-million-dollar corporation.
For our podcast of the week, we’re featuring How I Built This with Guy Raz, a podcast about innovators, entrepreneurship and idealist, and the stories that lead to their success.

What’s How I Built This about?
Each corporation and business started out as an idea. From the early seeds of entrepreneurship, How I Built This explores the stories behind those big-name companies and the grass-roots initiatives that lead to their success.
Guy Raz reaches out to CEOs, founders and business executives for an exclusive look into their life before their company. Each episode features an interview with an entrepreneur or innovator and a curated narrative that ushers listeners through the guest’s story.
The stories of entrepreneurship are never the same, but they often carry lessons that can be universal to anyone listening. Guests share the challenges and hardships that come with starting with nothing and become a leader.
From lessons in management to hard work, new episodes will leave listeners with a hunger for success.
What We Love About How I Built This
Not only are episodes digging into the nitty-gritty of the guest’s entrepreneurial journey, they also highlight the tumultuous experiences and the parts of success that aren’t as glamorous.
The stories are real. Listeners get to hear what it’s like working a traditional nine-to-five job, coming home to a house full of children, then picking up the side business from 8 PM to 3 AM—and then waking up to do it all over again. They hear about the sacrifices needed to find success in entrepreneurship and what it takes to become a leader in both business and life.
How I Built This is produced by NPR, posting new episodes every week.
