This is a Talking Teenage Life episode that is not to be missed!!
Colin Tapscott is someone I have known almost all my life and is a close friend of my family. I wanted to interview him for this podcast because he is a natural leader.
Having left college, Colin pursued a career in teaching and became a headteacher before he was 30. He has followed a successful career as a headteacher with establishing his own training business called Everyday Leader and he has his own book on leadership being published this year. In this podcast, we not only explore Colin’s professional career, but we find out about his teenage years and how his faith has influenced the choices and decisions he has made.
It was great to talk to Colin as he is easy to listen to and a really inspirational guy. I hope you enjoy our conversation too!
BBC Look East presenter, Amelia Reynolds, talks to us about her career in journalism. We also learn about her life as a teenager, gap year travelling the world and family life in Norfolk. This is a fascinating insight into the media world and this interview was carried out just before Amelia interviewed Sir Kier Starmer, the new Labour party leader.
Due to the lockdown in England, this is the first Talking Teenage Life podcast to be recorded on Zoom. It could be the first of many like this.

This is the first episode of series 2 in Talking Teenage Life.
From relocating from the country of her birth, to setting up her own Dance School business, Sandra Hartley has a fascinating story to tell. I have known Sandra since I was three, when she started teaching me ballet. It was amazing to get an idea of how she became the inspirational women she is today. Sandra talks about her time working in a circus and her passion of dance. She also explains the joy she gets from teaching 3 year olds to skip, through to helping her more advanced students pursue a career in dance. We think this is an insightful podcast to begin our new series.

*Our second series will be back in September when we will have more great conversations with another 10 inspiring guests.*
In a recent RE lesson, we all got the chance to imagine the questions we would want to ask a Christian. There were some great questions; what is heaven like? / if you pray for something will it happen? / what’s your favourite parable? / should you forgive everybody?
In this podcast, we put youth worker, Matt Levett, on the spot and get him to give his best responses to those questions
Matt is a larger than life character who only became a Christian because he fancied a girl who went to Church but has gone on to lead projects helping street kids in Guatemala for over 25 years.
In this podcast Matt and I really do try to understand what’s important in life and what isn’t. And he tells some great stories too!
Imagine having to be funny everyday. Matt Prittchett is ‘Matt’ the Daily Telegraph’s cartoonist and everyday he has to produce a cartoon for the front page. He talks about the creative process that he goes through each day to get to the final version.
Matt talks about his family, his grandfather was one of the best short- story writers of the last century, his dad was a telegraph columnist and still helps out with the wording on his cartoons, and his sister is a comedy writer for sketches for Miranda and others.
Matt also talks about being invited to lunch at Buckingham Palace, receiving a letter from the Prime Minister and why he wanted England to lose in the semi- final of the World Cup in 2018.
From surviving being caught up in an earthquake whilst on a gap year, through to her personal crusade to combat the climate crisis, Mel’s story is a fascinating listen. She has now set up her own plastic- free pop up shop called Cupboard Love. Mel gives advice on how to help with cutting down single- use plastic, even if it’s just as little as getting a reusable water bottle. Listen to this episode to learn how Mel has turned her passion for the environment into a business.
