What is "F.I.T.F.O."?
History is written by the victor - and many of those who achieved victory, whether on the battlefield or in the boardroom, did so by "Figuring It The F*** Out".

That brings us to the FITFO podcast. No corners are cut and no conversation is too gritty for us to deep dive in to. Listeners can expect a healthy does of humor, heart, and a lot of blunt discussions surrounding the world we live in today.
