Speaking about the launch of the podcast series, host Sophie Corbett, said:
“I am always keen for people to talk. Life can be wonderful but it can also be incredibly challenging at times. I never want people to feel alone and I also find people incredible and each individual’s life so very interesting.
Working with Rockwater we are able to reach out and I am lucky enough to meet and chat to some of the most inspiring individuals, who have also been brave enough to be vulnerable, speaking to me and their fans at Rockwater not only about their highlights but also about when life has been challenging and painful.
We think we know someone and then they really open up and tell us about their journey. That’s when we can learn so much and that is what the Rockwater ‘In Conversations with’ podcast is all about. I thought I knew about each guest when in fact I only knew a little piece of the pie. Their stories are funny, moving, inspirational, educational, brave and the list goes on. At Rockwater we are excited to keep talking and listening.”
