Austin Murphy has been covering the OCR industry for Sports Illustrated for a half decade now. So we were especially excited for his incredible coverage of the film.
"I laughed, I was inspired, I was on the edge of my seat, my kids were howling with laughter, and my wife loved it." - Ben Greenfield
Ben Greenfield does NOT watch movies. Let alone docs. BUT, the bestselling author slash body-hacking podcaster saw our film and... we're psyched he did. If you like this movie, you'll love this episode of Ben Greenfield Fitness.
Comedian Adam Carolla holds a Guinness World Record for the most podcast downloads in history. About a million people tune into each episode of The Adam Carolla Show. So I was obviously psyched to talk sufferfests and more with him.
Here's a link to the episode. If you want to cut to the chase, the sufferstuff starts at 54:48.
For anyone who needs a little nudge...Continue reading
Mike Bushell of BBC Breakfast, the UK's biggest morning news program, produced a segment surrounding the 30th anniversary of Tough Guy, and one that shined a bright light on "Rise of the Sufferfests." The segment features key footage from the film as well as interview clips with Mr. Mouse, James Appleton, Ed Gamester and writer/director Scott Keneally.Continue reading
As a longtime fan and admirer of ESPN's Jeremy Schaap, it was a HUGE honor to talk sufferfests with him on his radio show, "The Sporting Life." The man has won eight Emmy's for his work on E:60, Outside the Lines and Sports Center. And he wrote and narrated E:60's amazing "Hurley" documentary. So needless to say, I was humbled and thrilled to hear him describe our film as "fascinating." Have a listen!
The Art of Manliness is an absolutely brilliant blog and podcast that I referred to quite often while researching this film. Specifically, themes surrounding the history of masculinity. I was such a fan that I asked the man behind it, Brett McKay, to be in our film. He returned the favor in episode #227 of his podcast. You can listen here.
"Scott Keneally takes an investigative approach to the phenomenon, endearingly documenting his own relationship with the various races, while navigating the sport’s muddy past, present and future. The film is packed with interesting information, benefitting from talking head interviews with the likes of Morgan Spurlock and Tim Ferriss. But the most intriguing conversations are with the founders of the main three races discussed, Will Dean of Tough Mudder, Joe De Sena of Spartan Race and Billy Wilson, aka Mr. Mouse of Tough Guy." - Men's Journal
