Last month, Jeni sat down for a live recording of How I Built This with Guy Raz—an NPR podcast that takes a deep dive into the stories of entrepreneurs and the movements they’ve created. It’s a great podcast for aspiring business owners and anyone who just loves a good story.
The episode featuring our illustrious founder, Jeni Britton Bauer, is now available to stream. And, we might be biased, but it’s pretty freaking good. The show is packed with stories Jeni doesn’t often tell. Like how her first successful business involved selling homemade Pixy Stix on her elementary school playground. That she refused to take the SAT, but managed to talk her way into Ohio State University (which she would later drop out of to make ice cream). And that an orange scone actually inspired her business plan.
Hear these stories from Jeni (and a lot more!) on the podcast now.
Pro tip: We highly recommend pairing this episode with a scoop of Lemon Buttermilk Frozen Yogurt—Jeni’s all-time favorite flavor, which gets a much-deserved endorsement from host Guy Raz.
