This episode has been a long time coming and you will probably find it as odd as I did sitting down with Greig recording as we are usually doing this together. He takes us on a journey from Childhood to University - Head of Coach Education for the Scottish FA to being a participant on the course. We also speak about podcasts and music. We listen to a lot of podcast so Greig takes us through a few he has been listening to. Please also extend our thanks to the key workers out there and our NHS for their support through this tough time.  Stay Home, Stay Safe Bye Now
