    18. Cam Cole

    Over 7 million people have watched in awe as they saw Cam's viral video on Facebook of him busking on the streets of London.
    Hailed as “the most impressive one-man band you will ever see” by Unilad when they showcased him to their 44 million followers, Cam Cole is a singer, songwriter, busker and new age traveller from London, UK who roams around performing on streets and venues as his one man band show influenced by Folk, Delta Blues, Grunge and Rock N' Roll.
    His long-awaited debut album was released on the 1st of November 2019. It contains 10 tracks taken directly from his busking set. The reactions from his long-time followers have been ecstatic, especially as Cam and his team made the bold decisions to record all tracks live in one take to capture the magic Cam creates on the streets. The result is a raw, real record that stands out in a market place of increasingly watered-down rock music, made by an artist who will not compromise on his ethics and message.

    15. Interview with Johnny Hockin Film Director and ex MTV host

    In this interview I had a chat with Johnny Hockin where we talk about when he worked on MTV interviewing famous actors like George Clooney, Ryan Gosling, Hugh Jackman and Tommy Lee Jones. Not all of them were easy to talk to but some were really a pleasure.


    Johnny Hockin is a Toronto-based producer and filmmaker. While working as a correspondent at MTV News, he co-created and hosted MTV Movie Night for MTV Canada, which aired on CTV. In 2011, he produced the viral fan film Tron: Destiny which has almost 4 million views. Johnny left MTV to form Juniper Island Productions, where in 2013 he produced the BravoFact short Manifold with director Anthony Scott Burns. Manifold starred Stephen McHattie, premiered at Fantastic Fest in Austin, and garnered 200,000 views and a Vimeo staff pick. He has worked as a commercial producer and director with clients including Red Bull, Soho House and Vice Media.

    13. The Best Italian City to Live or Study in: Reggio Emilia

    13. The Best Italian City to Live or Study in: Reggio Emilia

    I interviewed Daniela Vezzani in this episode who founded Reggio Lingua in 2004. I wanted to do an episode about the city where I live (Reggio Emilia) because I really like it, so Daniela tells what you can do if you want to come here and learn Italian. There are many opportunities to experience the culture by staying with a host family or doing cooking courses.

    Reggio Emilia offers many things to do including outdoor activities like mountain biking, climbing, hiking and then they are world famous for their food like Parmigiano Reggiano or Balsamic vinegar. It's not as well know as the other cities nearby like Parma Modena or Bologna but believe me, it's a gem!

    If you're interested in studying with ReggioLingua here's their link: https://www.reggiolingua.it/
    Have a look at this video with some incredible images of our city: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N7I-AuKQPKs
