Michelle Owen Live

Michelle Owen
Even as a teenager, Michelle Owen was always prepared to challenge stereotypes. Her love of football has always been with her and when she was forced to play netball at school, she did ‘keepie-uppies’ with the ball until she got sent to the corner.
After a spell as breakfast DJ, she’s now doing the job she loves – reporting on football on Sky Sports and Radio 5 Live.
In this podcast, there is a recurring theme of overcoming adversity from succeeding in a male dominated career through to fighting the debilitating illness, Hyperemesis Gravidarm, during pregnancy.
We’re sure you’ll find this podcast with Michelle Owen an inspiration.

Matt Levett Podcast Live

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!
