About the Hosts

Kyle Peters

Producer and Engineer

I've only guested on a couple episodes, but I do a lot of the production work behind the TSIR brand.

I joined the team in January 2022, but I've been a die-hard fan of the show since Justin published his first episode. I love to see how it's grown, and I believe this is only just the beginning.

Editing and producing publishable content from raw audio is my favorite responsibility. Of course, I love having behind the scenes conversations with Justin as well.

I just moved down to Austin in August of 2022, but I'll never forget the dirty Lou in hometown Missouri.

Some of my favorite things are electronic music, live sports, chess, and finance.

If you're a fan of the show, send us a message. We'd love to hear from you.

As always, thanks for tuning in!

If you’ve listened to an episode of The Struggle is Real, you’ve heard my voice.

I’ve been hosting the show since the inception. Has it really been almost 3 years!? Thanks to you that have stuck around with me as I find my voice as a host.

Prepping for our guests and asking the questions are my favorite responsibilities.

I’m currently living in Austin but St. Louis will always have a soft spot in my heart.

Some of my favorite things are Cardinals baseball, plants, and rock climbing.

It’s been an absolute blast creating this show for y’all (I’m allowed to say that in Texas). I’m not going away anytime soon so if you have feedback, I’d love to hear it.

Thanks for tuning in!
