Absolute honour chatting to Jason Lytle; singer and songwriter for the band Grandaddy, as well as solo musician and absolute legend, on this episode of the podcast.  It's hard to describe how much it meant to me to chat with Jason, I'm incredibly thankful.

On this episode I chat to Jimmy Stadt from Polar Bear Club & now a new band called Shy Tooth. This conversation means a whole lot to me, PBC were a band that inspired and captivated me like few others and I was incredibly gutted when they chose to call it a day. If you'd have told me 10 years ago I'd be chatting to Jimmy about films, music and marketing ... I'd have probably pooped my pants and been too anxious to e...

Just before I lost all sense of time and was consumed with working for others/paying off bills, I had the absolute pleasure of chatting with Dan Le Sac. Honestly, that's huge for 31 year old me, but even bigger for me at 17 years old, standing awestruck at Mr Kypps in Poole having my mi...
