Awesome Listening

Only discovered this podcast last week and I’ve almost finished them all. Love the conversational feel, Orla has a great style and technique to get the guests talking. More, more, more pleeeease.

Very interesting and insightful

I really like the relaxed style of these interviews - my favourite has to be the Rod Ellingworth episode, the ‘unknown man’ of British cycling, unknown to the general public that is.

Excellent interviews

Found the interview with Steve Peters outstanding. I have downloaded his book and am working through, to understand my mind . It’s amazing, like having my own therapist xxx
