Episode 100: Jake Barker-Daish – My Story

100 episodes guys we did it! Thank you so much for your continued support and loyalty to the show. We decided to flip the script for the 100th show with an idea that spurred back around the time of the 20th episode from my friend Sebastian Gotch who wanted to interview me.

This was something I had never felt comfortable on opening up about it due to still healing from the passed in regard to my soccer journey. However, I felt it was time as this platform was growing to share why I started this show, why I am so interested in athletes and to give more context to me, your host! I hope that you enjoy this episode and again thankyou for your continuous support it means the world.
