In Search of Lost Mojo

On this podcast, I interview world-class athletes, adventurers, and achievers from ages 50 to 150, as well as globally renowned experts in human optimization, in a quest to unlock the secrets of lifelong high performance. We’ll uncover actionable insights on training methods, nutrition, mental agility, emerging technologies, state-of-the art research, and everything in between. We’ll also get to tap into the essence of true wisdom that our guests have forged through the crucible of time, trials, and triumphs. In the process, we’re going to disrupt and upend the very notion of what it means to “get old”.

Mitch Seavey is a 3-time winner of the Iditarod, a sled dog race from a ceremonial start in Anchorage to Nome, Alaska that’s been called the “Last Great Race on Earth”.  Teams often run the 1000-mile race through blizzards causing whiteout conditions and confront sub-zero temperatures and winds that can cause the wind chill to reach -100 degrees. 

In 2017, at 57, Seavey won the race as the oldest winner ever in a record time of just over 8 days.  He competed in his first Iditarod in 1982 at the age of 22 and has run ever Iditarod since 1995, racking up more than 15 top-10 finishes.
