    #MW5 Paul Phillips - IOMTT & Grand Fondo

    #MW5 Paul Phillips - IOMTT & Grand Fondo

    Paul talks about growing up on the IOM TT course and how his career path took him to the position of Business Development Manager for the TT.

    Known for being Mr TT, Paul talks candidly about all aspects of the TT; its growth, the digital revolution, the glory, the danger and trying to segregate personal life and the TT. Great insight for any TT fan.

    Paul, along with his team, also run the Grand Fondo sportive cycle event. With its growing reputation as a cycling challenge and race in 2021, its status is upgraded to a UCI event. Which brings massive prestige and the ability to showcase the Island for all its beauty.

    #MW4 - Graham Clucas

    #MW4 - Graham Clucas

    Graham kindly shares his life story with us. As a troubled child he turned to drugs at 14 which escalated to crime and twenty turbulent years.

    Graham recalls stories of his time in prison on and off Island, trying to set himself on fire, being charged with manslaughter, being an enforcer for a drug gang and being sectioned.

    At 35 and having gone through the systems, he took charge of his own situation and rebuild himself. Graham discusses the last 14 years of educating (and another bombshell he had to deal with!) and understanding his situation and his work with Quing around recovery capital and managing people and power.

    #MW3 - POC IOM - Racism

    #MW3 - POC IOM - Racism

    We chat with Catherine, Elsa and Haafizah of POC IOM.

    Starting constructive conversations about racism and bias can be daunting, regardless of the audience. It shouldn’t be; dialogue and education can only help the understanding and discussion.   

    If you think racism isn’t on the Island - you're mistaken. We talk about micro aggression, the meaning of white privilege and what BLM means.   

    A wonderfully open conversation about experiences and understanding.

Insightful & relatable podcast

What I like the most about this podcast is that it captures the ability in people to overcome setbacks and achieve their goals, through the correct mindset and the constant observance of healthy mental and physical habits.
Lots of good stuff that you can apply yo your day to day.

Fantastic Podcast - Recommended

With over 40yrs of both participating and coaching in Manx sport, I’m really enjoying hearing other local competitors and trainers spill their life stories and experiences.

The beauty of this podcast is that Martin and Matt don’t rush their guests, and dig deep into their upbringing, lifestyle and career - this results in a highly informative, fascinating and well-rounded audio experience.

Great work guys. 👍
