NPR's How I Built This Podcast Features Bert and John Jacobs

How I Built This is a podcast that captures this spirit. It's about innovators, entrepreneurs, and idealists, and the stories behind the movements they built. Each episode is a narrative journey marked by triumphs, failures, serendipity and insight — told by the founders of some of the world's best known companies and brands.

Longtime NPR correspondent and host Guy Raz speaks with change-makers and risk-takers, who tell stories about hustle, perseverance, and the sheer joy of creating something ... from nothing.

A few weeks ago, Life is Good Co-founders Bert and John Jacobs sat down with Raz to go behind the scenes to learn how it all began and how they got to where they are today.
