E63: David Portnoy – El Presidente, Barstool Sports



David Portnoy, nicknamed “El Presidente”, is the founder of Barstool Sports, which is one of the most recognizable sports blogs on the Internet. His propensity for pushing the envelope, from using vulgar language in posts to publishing naked photographs of Tom Brady’s baby, have earned him an almost Godlike status at college campuses across the country. Over the last five years, Barstool has seen its monthly traffic increase from 1.4 million unique viewers to 8 million. Barstool’s brand of smut and satire elevated it into the mainstream leading to their recent acquisition by The Chernin Group who moved nearly all of their operations to New York City.
