    #118 Lance Armstrong: The rise, fall, and redemption of a cycling legend

    #118 Lance Armstrong: The rise, fall, and redemption of a cycling legend

    Lance Armstrong is one most divisive athletes in history. He won a record seven consecutive Tour de France titles after beating stage three testicular cancer, which had spread to his lymph nodes, lungs, brain, and abdomen. But he has also faced intense scrutiny and admitted to taking performance-enhancing drugs like EPO and cortisone.

    In this conversation, we discuss his childhood growing up in Plano, Texas. We talk about how he initially got interested in cycling, and when he knew that he could beat the world’s best. He tells me the details about his cancer diagnosis, treatment, and eventual return to professional cycling.

    We dig deep into his fall from grace, including the federal investigation, the multi-million-dollar lawsuits, and his eventual confession to Oprah. And finally, Lance opens up about the financial impact this has had on his family — from losing $75 million in one day to a fortunate meeting that enabled him to become an early investor in Uber.
