Some super inspirational guests

Excellent pace and structure. Great combo between the two hosts. Jono W was my fave sportsman podcast and Steven Bartlett fave overall. As a fan of Tony Robbins wide range of guests that offer unique insights, this has the potential to be the very best as the guest list grows. Best of luck with the project.

cant pay - stupid ,

Refreshing

Super interesting guests and insightful questions, easy to listen to whilst working or out for a walk.

Please can you focus on having more females on, it’s very male heavy and there’s loads of high performance females out there!

Thank you

Hi Jake/Damian/Guests,

Thank you for for these podcasts which are hugely inspirational.

I’ve just set up a second company in football after selling my last one and continuing to work for them for 3.5 years. I’ve also had my 4th child in Jan and recently signed up for the VSI CEO in Sport Programme which means me travelling from Dubai to Manchester 9 times over the next year so I need all the help I can get! Keep up the great work!
