In The Arena is where entrepreneurs and leaders share stories of the biggest crises of their careers and lives – and how they made it through.

Host (and founder herself) Jesse Genet goes beyond the headlines to interview leaders about the most challenging moments they've ever faced – from total business collapse, to public scandals, even being sentenced to prison. Along with special guest co-hosts, In The Arena revisits the crucible experiences and reveals what it was actually like in the room. Most importantly, leaders share how they bounced back from the brink, offering advice, mental frameworks, and earned wisdom for any aspiring leader.

In The Arena is part of the Turpentine podcast network. To learn more:
