Ep25 - Sally Gunnell

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!

  • 24. Ep24 - Riz Ahmed

    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!'Produced by Cheryl Davis
