    Red Leopard

    Red Leopard

    Have you ever stopped to think, really think, about which colours suit you best when buying your clothes, eyewear and accessories? We all have colours we love, but are these colours truly bringing out the best in us? What messages are we giving out when we choose to wear certain colours? Can wearing different colours make us come across, for example, as more credible, or more successful, or more confident, or more empathic, or more sensitive?
    Manina Weldon and Rachel Saunders run Red Leopard, and they believe passionately in the important of choosing and wearing the right colours. It goes without saying that Jason Kirk is just as passionate about colours, taking risks, being bold. And all this makes for a fascinating episode of The Eyes Have It, as Jason, Manina and Rachel look in depth and how we can all use colours to our advantage.

Screaming Jay ,

Captain Kirk pilots this podcast into my top 5

As a fan of Kirk and Kirk for many years and a deep lover of the quirky style and design, it was understandable that I held high expectations for this podcast.

I’m very happy to say this podcast shows a great representation of the Kirk and Kirk brand. One of absolute quality and professionalism while still being very interesting. Jason is a wonderful host and seems to have the ability of a well seasoned interviewer that takes many people years to learn.

I found this podcast completely captivating and I love the way it cleverly combines life stories and glasses in a very subtle and smooth way.

I’m very excited for future episodes to come and would recommend this podcast to anyone. It is a great format that for me works in all listening environments wether that be in the car, evening listening or something to have on while working.

The podcast world is so crazy now and it is very hard to find a niche. Also it can take a long time for the host to get to grips with the many complexities of podcasting. I think this podcast has shown in its first episode that these complexities are not an issue.

I look forward with great excitement to the next episode.
