We are living through a time where so much of what we say is recorded forever. Not just that, our opinions can be brought back up years later even when things have moved on or our views have changed. Because of that, I’ve always been really conscious of the things I speak about online… that’s until I was interviewed by the incredible @edjackson8.
Someone who has overcome so much in his life with the odds stacked against him. Someone I respect dearly and also love seeing across a crowded dance floor.
Ed completely disarmed me in this podcast and it’s the most honest I’ve ever been in an interview. Life isn’t always easy and actually, it’s not meant to be. It’s about how you decide to grow through the lessons that come your way and learning how to dig deep when things get tough.
The rest of his ‘It’s Good to Walk’ podcast series is filled with stories of people who have fought through so much to be here and have found new meaning in the things that really matter.
I hope you enjoy this interview as much as we did recording it. Leaving my heart open from here…
When I first started working in the music industry, as well as being a presenter I used to write about the artists, gigs and festivals I loved. One of the websites I wrote for was @datatransmission. Now, as a Producer, it makes it even more awesome to feature on their podcast. Huge love to @grahamefarmer & @shelley_dodds76.
