The Three Why's Men

Originally intended as a book club, the idea for the podcast was born after we decided some other people might want to listen to us rambling. Each season brings a new book to review, join us as we discuss the key themes and topics with a different set of guests who provide fascinating insight into their experiences.

S1 Ep5 Chris Lines

This weeks episode is with current Stevenage footballer Chris Lines. Chris has amassed over 500 appearances in the football league and won 5 promotions so far. We loved the insight he gave into different team cultures at the places he has been & the reasons behind some of those environments being more beneficial towards any success they experienced. We covered the games in front of 30,000, the Wembley appearances, the cup ties against some big boys & so much more. What a guest! 3WM--- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app

S1 Ep4 Cam Foulkes

In this episode Cam provides us with a different spin on topics from the book as he gives us insight into his experiences playing football & now coaching at the academy level. The past few years have unfortunately given us some tragic stories about ex-academy players who have tried to, or committed suicide & Cam's twitter and Instagram account @_InsideTheMind1 gives some really raw and in depth stories from players who have experienced the academy environment. Each story is different but there are some common themes from what Cam posts and it is well worth checking it out and helping him spread awareness of the difficulties that these young people face. We explore team, club and some organisational identity in this podcast and we really hope that you enjoy it; there's so much to take from this and we thank Cam for giving up his time to come and spread the word on a topic that is so relevant right now and needs more attention. 3WM--- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app

S1 Ep3 Sean Marsden

Episode 3 is a corker if we do say so ourselves! Sean had a great playing career for multiple clubs before transitioning into coaching. Now a first team skills coach at Bristol Bears, Sean talks us through his journey & his experiences in a number of different team environments. From his signing for Bristol for next to nothing, to now coaching and helping Bristol's homegrown talent and world-class stars Sean provided us with excellent insight whilst making us all feel like we could relate!  Exploring Sean's views on team togetherness & different team cultures was an absolute pleasure, we are so grateful to him for giving up his time.  (Couple of sound issues in this one. Apologies!) 3WM --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app

S1 Ep2 Scott Wilson

Episode 2 is with Dagenham & Redbridge striker Scott Wilson. Scott's brought some amazing insight into his journey so far which has brought some great highs along with some challenges, too. The themes we covered regarding team cultures and environments are so fascinating and this is an episode that really got us thinking about how a lot of topics from the book we read might not be practical for all people at all levels. We're so grateful to Scott for giving up his time.  May contain some bad language! 3WM --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app
