Entrepreneurs wear a ridiculous number of hats. Amongst them, is that of the student. Entrepreneurs are always learning, always questioning, always looking to do things a little bit different. 

Debuting in September of 2016, "How I Built This" is a podcast hosted by journalist and commentator Guy Raz, features "innovators, entrepreneurs, idealists, and the stories behind the movements they built." The episodes generally run for about half an hour and showcase the ascendacy of the entrepreneurs through their trials, tribulations, and eventual success. Guy keeps the pace moving, and asks the layman's questions to help make accessible the inner workings of the minds of some of today's most interesting people. 

If you want a recommendation of where to start, look no further than episode 1 featuring Sara Blakely, founder of Spanx. Sara's energy is nothing short of infectous, and her story is altogether inspiring to say the least. Other excellent episodes feature the background stories to great American companies such as Southwest Airlines and Sam Adams Beer. Check out "How I Built This" on your Podcast app or through the National Public Radio website.
