Have you ever built something you really care about — or even just dream about it? You're not alone. Some say we're living through a golden age where the spirit of entrepreneurship is all around us.

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.
