Hosted By: Glenn the Geek, Founder of the Horse Radio Network, and Samantha Clark, host of the 2010 Radio Show and past host of the Eventing Radio Show. (see below for bios)
Published: Twice a month (15th and 30th) to the start of the WEG in September 2018. Then daily during the 14 days of the games.
After having the time of her life covering the 2010 WEG in Lexington Kentucky for Horse Radio Network, Samantha committed to stalking the USA’s eventing community and some of the top riders in the world as a reporter for Eventing Nation.
Attending local unaffiliated horse shows, the biggest and best events in the world and everything in between, she now believes she has enough wet weather/thermal underwear to clothe an entire squad and has worked in every imaginable condition. No matter what, the love of the sport, the passion she sees, the horsemanship and camaraderie she witnesses daily always make it worthwhile.
Samantha has also done freelance work for various magazines and was honored to be in charge of Phillip Dutton’s social media for a couple of years which was an enormous pleasure and privilege. Last year Samantha returned to her local NPR station, WUKY FM, as their equestrian specialist and files a weekly report covering all aspects of the horse industry in the Central Kentucky area.
Samantha was delighted to be asked to co-host the 2018 WEG show with her 2010 partner in crime, Glenn the Geek, and is excited to welcome the world back to the USA next year.
Samantha lives in Lexington, Kentucky and juggles life with two teenagers and an adopted black lab mix adolescent; the three of them wear her out but she wouldn’t have it any other way. She also enjoys catch riding whenever possible and thanks her lucky stars regularly that she lives in the Horse Capital of the World.
Glenn the Geek founded the Horse Radio Network in July 2008. Starting with one show (The Stable Scoop Radio Show) and no listeners, since then the Horse Radio Network has now grown to numerous shows with tens of thousands of listeners from around the world. The Horse Radio Network is also one of the longest running and largest independent podcasting networks with over 5,000 episodes.
Known as America’s Horse Husband, Glenn married into the horse thing about 30 years ago when he met Jennifer, his horse addicted wife. Together they ran a large training, boarding and lesson facility for over 10 years. Glenn learned to drive horses and his passion lies in being in a carriage driving ponies.
In the early married years Glenn and Jennifer owned an improvisational acting company that did over 450 shows in ten years. Glenn is a believer that entertainment comes first, education second and he transfers that belief to the shows he hosts on HRN.
