When Academy Award Winning Director Bryan Fogel set out to make ICARUS he had one goal: to examine how easy it is to get away with doping in professional sports. Instead, he was connected to a Russian doctor-turned-whistleblower, Grigory Rodchenkov. Together, they blew the lid off a state-sponsored doping scheme that has been ongoing in Russia for decades and which directly led to Russia being banned from the 2018 Winter Games in South Korea.

In a story that rivals any international spy thriller, Fogel’s program takes audiences through his quixotic adventure making ICARUS. Audiences are captivated by the unprecedent unravelling of an international scandal leading directly to the Kremlin, and the intricacies of Russian covert tampering—not only in the U.S. but on the international playing field.

Bryan has given keynote speeches to Wells Fargo, Deutsche Bank, General Catalyst, Topo, the NFL, and many others.

Fogel has appeared among others on ABC Nightline, Charlie Rose, Seth Meyers, Joe Rogan, CNN, ESPN, The View and has been featured in publications around the globe.

“Bryan’s keynote was an incredible success. ICARUS is one of today’s truly remarkable stories—it’s high drama in real life. Bryan’s story is filled with big ideas, heartfelt moments, humor, and incredible ups and downs. He had the audiences on the edge of their seats, laughing, crying, and ultimately thanking him with a standing ovation. I cannot recommend Bryan enough.”
