Play • 24 min

INTRODUCING THE ‘QUICK FIRE’ SEGMENTS: This is where we ask each guest the same kind of questions broken into two sections. First, their thoughts on major areas of the sport of squash. And then two other areas that we learn more about their life. I love this section because I never know what people were going to say. And I've learned so much about the guests and new ways to try and do things.

 So we're going to try and do more interviews based on this shorter format, because we're always up for experiments and try new things.  Thank you for all your support we've been getting and your emails mean the world to me and the rest of the team as always thanks for tuning in, and we hope you enjoy.

********************** ProSportLED is also a Sponsor of Squash Radio and we both aligned about the importance of sharing the stories of people involved in our Sport.  We cover a lot of ground on this episode and launch a new addition to our “Quick Fire” segment with a 90-second take on the major areas of the Sport.

We hope you enjoy our conversation! ********************* SUMMARY FROM FULL INTERVIEW
