    David Pocock had a remarkable sporting career, playing professional rugby for Australia at the tender age of 17, he ended up captaining the Wallabies and being the only Australian player included in World Rugby's 'Team of the Decade'. Yet his story is every bit as fascinating off the field as on, be it his family's traumatic flight from Zimbabwe, his social activism or his run for the Senate.

Such a good listen

I am a latecomer to the podcast but I am thoroughly enjoying catching up!
Nigel’s style is one which extracts so much out of his interviewees and each episode can have you laughing one moment and in tears the next

Fabulous interview series

Nigel has tight interview format which a friend (and guest) Remo steered me to.

I loved Tony Wilson sharing heartfelt family and friends stories, and Dare Jennings talking Apocalypse Now, Sarah Wilson’s statue in Belgium. Peter FitzSimons singing Hurricane.

A Brilliant Series

I’ve listened to a number of ‘Five of my life’ podcasts so far. Each of them has been very interesting in their own way given the diverse range of people Nigel has spoken to. This format, as he correctly says, gives a great insight into the lives of prominent people and it’s refreshingly different to the normal interview format. Some of the chats have led me to seek out films books and music mentioned by people which has added to the experience. I thoroughly enjoyed the podcasts I’ve listen to so far and look forward to listening to many more and highly recommend them to other listeners.
