About the Merchants of Dirt Podcast
The Merchants of Dirt Podcast, hosted by Kyle M. Bondo, is a podcast dedicated to helping you become a successful off-road race promoter. Each episode provides you with Kyle’s exclusive, behind-the-scenes perspective that only his 20+ years of producing endurance, trail, water, orienteering, mountain bike, and adventure races can provide. The result is a show that can help you start a new race, or improve on what you’ve already started.
About the Host – Kyle M. Bondo
As a successful race promoter with over 20+ year in the endurance racing industry, I help others start and improve their own races so that they can share their passion for endurance sports with others.
I create training resources like Reckoneer Go-Loop and Race Promotion Roadmap, and still produce my own events like Wolf Bouncer All Mountain, Wednesdays at Wakefield MTB Series, and Washington DC Mountain Bike Meetup.
Your Co-Host – Mr. Murphy
As a professional fictional lawyer, saboteur, and co-host, Mr. Murphy (of the law firm Murphy, Murphy, and Murphy) is a frequent visitor to the podcast since the first episode.
Best known for Murphy’s Law — A Definitive Guide to Wrecking Everything, Mr. Murphy is a big believer in whatever can go wrong, will go wrong, with a particular enjoyment of having it happen at the worst possible time, and in the worst possible sequence.
As a co-host of the Merchants of Dirt Podcast, Mr. Murphy serves as a constant reminder to always Murphy-proof your planning by trying to think like Mr. Murphy and beat him at his own game.
When not wrecking races, websites, or plans, Mr. Murphy enjoys collecting vintage hand-grenades, trail running and spending time with Bad Luck, his good hunting dog.
