    Happiness is... Cammy Hutchinson [Ep 126]

    Happiness is... Cammy Hutchinson [Ep 126]

    I've known Cammy for a few years and watched his progress from afar. He smiles and laughs and has time for everyone. 
    He was playing part-time and working for a removal company, helping me to move house! It was great to chat to him.
    I loved watching him at Edinburgh, and was sad to see him go to Newcastle. But, I was delighted that he would get to play more and challenge himself in a new environment. 
    I loved having him as a podcast guest, we talked Rugby and life and the time disappeared!
    I hope you enjoy listening.

    Happiness Is... Prof Tom Gillingwater [Ep 125]

    Happiness Is... Prof Tom Gillingwater [Ep 125]

    ALL ROADS LEAD TO ROME SPECIAL 
    Late last year, I spoke to Ian Barr & Rob Boyns, the Captains of the Dodd1e'5 Gr4nd S7am Team. They had the mad idea of cycling from Murrayfield to Rome for the Scotland v Italy 6N match. If that wasn't daft enough, it will visit Dublin, Cardiff, London, Paris, Monaco & Pisa on the way. 2 days after recording, they called and asked if I wanted to join...
    We're now 2 weeks away from departure, the team has visited Carrongrange school and Edinburgh University to engage with groups supporting our effort.
    Prof Tom Gillingwater is an important member of the MND community working at the Euan Macdonald MND ResearchCentre, trying every day to make progress towards finding treatments and, eventually, a cure.
    It was inspiring to listen to him, and I will think of his words in the darker moments on the trip.
    I hope you enjoy listening.

    Happiness Is... Ally Hogg [Ep 124]

    The Happiness is... Podcast with Ally Hogg
    I've known Hoggy for years, and when we coached together, we became good mates. I loved watching him play for Edinburgh and Scotland and went down to Kingston Park on a cold Friday to see him with Falcons. His attitude toward the game (& life) was relaxed but focused. He was good for me.
    I enjoyed kicking off a new series with a friend. We chatted 6N, Scotland, #Clubland, and life. 
    Hoggy knows...

Something for every rugby fan

A top rugby podcast. Bruce bucks the trend of rugby pods being weighted towards the views and takes of hosts. Gets the best and most out of all guests from ones listened to to date and endless episodes of folk any and all rugby fans would want to listen to.
