Season 4, Ep. 25
I'm not an Olympic Gold medallist like my guest today, Sally Gunnell, but we do have one thing in common - we both grew up on a farm. We chatted about the sense of responsibility this gave us and motivation to get up every day and keep trying to succeed along our different paths. It was a true honour to talk to someone so successful yet so grounded about when to step up and when to step back. Let's get listening!
Ep24 - Riz Ahmed
Season 4, Ep. 24
My guest today, Sound of Metal actor, Riz Ahmed shares his extraordinary experience of learning American Sign Language, becoming a drummer and putting his body through rigorous work-outs all in the space of a few months. To absorb himself in the role of 'Ruben', Riz tells me how engaging with the deaf community truly taught him how to listen. It feels entirely appropriate therefore to say 'Let's get Listening!'.

Ep22 - Carol Jarvis
Season 4, Ep. 22
Carol Jarvis is an exceptional musician who has been on an incredible journey - touring with Seal whilst battling cancer and flying back to the UK for blood transfusions between gigs! She has performed with a wealth of great artists and has so many stories to tell but the one that inspires me the most is how she remained resilient and determined whilst being told she only had weeks to live. Thankfully, she is now strong and well and inspiring young musicians up and down the country to be resourceful and positive! I hope you enjoy this really special episode!

I have always been a huge fan of Toyah's so to have the chance to chat to her about everything that keeps her creative was incredible for me!

So let's get listening!In loving memory of Isobel Glennie.
