Episode 250 Shower Toga with Kressa Peterson
Today Lisa-Anne gets to talk with Kressa Peterson, Inventor and Owner/Operator of Shower Toga, about her company. They discuss where it came from, the Walmart diaper cover material that was V 1.0, and all the way through the new Biodegradable option created to be sent to catastrophes and help the front-line workers. Kressa is a Spartan who found it a little dysfunctional to try and get clean (I think we have all had that feeling once or twice) and she decided to do something about it. Listen to this episode and learn about the story of Kressa and the Shower Toga from V1.0 to Kickstarter and on to Shark Tank. Getting invested into by Mark Cuban, and now being able to give back.

Episode 212 Love and Hate Radio forgets what show they are recording.
Today's BeastNet comes from a strange place.  Brandon Valentine from Love and Hate Radio(Pretty Mike's alter Ego) forgot which show he was recording and spent an hour talking with Comedian Andy Vargo about fitness, exercise and gave a real good recap of the Spartan Virtual Ultra Mike ran.  This works out to be a great crossover and you should take some time to get acquainted with Brandon Valentine if you have a minute.  Fun things happen on Love and Hate Radio.

Episode 211 BeastNet takes on the Ultra Virus and Spartan Ultra Virtual. AFTER the Race recap
BeastNet Officially lost their minds.   Mike, Don, Charity, and Ryan decided to see how many 5 miles loops they can get done in 12 hours. After the race They all get on Zoom to discuss the race, what worked and what didn't,  and how they finished Mike and Don got 31 miles done with the help of Christine and Virginia fo rthe entire event.  A whole cast of race family came from all around the State to join for a lap or two. Charity finished with 35 miles, and Ryan the overachiever knocked  it out of the park with 5 miles.  Granted Ryan was the MC for the event on their ZOOM race party pit.   Since this was an ORM event, we figured we would record this episode in tribute to their style.  Recording the whole time and send it up with minimal edits.  This race was allot of fun and it sounds like the BeastNet team in the South Sound of Washington has already committed to the next ORM UltraVirus event on July 18th.  When these four get together things get crazy, funny, and at times unintelligible.  You will have to give it a listen.

Today's episode is the another installment of Sober Spartans on BeastNet.  This show serves as an extension of the FaceBook Page: https://www.facebook.com/groups/SoberSpartans/ Through our journey running OCR many of us have found that not only  are we Spartans, but, we find that we are also on a path of sobriety and  the race is an outlet for us.  Many guests will use their real names,  some will use false names for anonymity.  If a guest has chosen to  remain anonymous, please respect that and just listen.  We will not  share names or stories of anyone but our own on this show. Today we hear some of the story of Terry "Tatted Ninja" Lamb.  Terry is a trainer, former Spartan employee, and motivational speaker.  We have a great conversation and talk about things like: why he has a check engine light on his forehead, working the steps any why they are important, and we finish out talking about our favorite memories from on the course.   If you need help, reach out on Facebook to Sober Spartans, or Email  BeastNetPodcast@gmail.com , other resources: www.AA.org, or www.NA.org WANT FREE STUFF?
