Number one

Don’t Tell Me the Score.

We’ve been fascinated with Simon Mundie’s podcast since its launch. Guest have included Jonny Wilkinson, Jamie Peacock, Sir Clive Woodward and Kate Richardson-Walsh to name a few. And not only does Simon talk to some of the biggest names in the sporting world, but he also sists down with Buddhist monks, neuroscientists, psychologists and philosophers.

Simon believes sport is a metaphor for life and this podcast proves that right as he discusses the importance of self-belief, self-acceptance right through to developing resilience and how to sleep better.

You’ll be hooked.
