I’ve watched Brian from the start. I’m a northern lad from near Newcastle except I support Sunderland (His teams local rivals) and I’m 10 years older than Brian but I’ve really been amazed by his growth not just on YouTube but as a person. Not many people from our region get to break free from the daily grind of what the working classes have to endure. I maybe older than him but he and some of his guests inspire me and makes me want to become more than I am. Top guest that will go all the way!

I love the tg podcast and have seen everyone one of them, but this was great because we really get to understand more of him in this, like his diving podcast and his podcast where he talks about his life

so true about the point on long content. People will watch 90 minuets of stale football with no goals yet criticise videos such as this, which contain real life experience and lessons to learn.
