The Life Lessons podcast has a simple mission: to have discussions that reveal something important about life and how best to live it. My guests range from the biggest sporting names on the planet to neuroscientists, psychologists and world-renowned philosophers and thinkers.
Guests have included Jonny Wilkinson, Caitlyn Jenner, Ronnie O’Sullivan and Dame Kelly Holmes, as well as thinkers including Daniel Goleman, Sam Harris, Michael Pollan, Dr Pippa Grange and Rupert Spira.
For 8 years I was the lead sports presenter for BBC Radio 1, covering all the biggest sporting events including the football World Cup in Brazil & the London 2012 Olympics. It was great fun, but in time I increasingly found the fixation with results, tactics and the score to be shallow. After all – sport is a metaphor for life, and I wanted to explore that.
That’s why I launched the ‘Don’t Tell Me The Score’ podcast on the BBC in 2018, since renamed ‘The Life Lessons Podcast’. While I increasingly venture into broader territories, I never lose touch with my sporting roots. Key themes include the power of acceptance, digital minimalism, how to set your circadian clock – right through to the nature of reality and ‘non-duality’.
These conversations, and the bitesize episodes, have the power to change your life.
