Reece Parkinson: Manifest Your Dreams - Episode 42

In The Moment with Alex Manzi

On this episode I’m super excited to sit down with BBC Radio 1Xtra presenter, Reece Parkinson, someone who I have had the pleasure of watching grow and evolve over the past couple of years. Reece is someone who I regularly turn to to bounce ideas around about this very podcast and also the projects he’s working on. And someone I’d consider a good friend, so it was great to be able to sit down and discuss his story and dig a little deeper inside his head. In the episode we hear Reece’s journey from community radio to Radio 1 & 1Xtra intern to getting his very own show on 1Xtra. We also speak about the importance of a strict daily routine to keep you focussed, why he likes to keep himself prepared like an athlete and why he doesn’t want to let his dreams slip away from him.
