Under the Skin with Russell Brand is a podcast hosted by comedian, actor, radio host, author, and activist Russell Brand. The podcast “asks: what’s beneath the surface – of people we admire, of the ideas that define our time, of the history we are told.”
This week I spoke with Joe Wicks. Joe is a fitness coach also known as “The Body Coach”. During this Covid-19 lockdown he has begun a daily morning YouTube Livestream called “P.E With Joe” to try and help children and adults stay active. His livestream has been viewed by millions and he has around 500,000 live viewers every morning!
We chatted about the money he’s raised for the NHS from YouTube Live Streaming, the vital role the exercise plays in maintaining good mental health and what our post-pandemic world might look like. Will there be any changes to our behaviour? Or we will all go back to our lives as they were? Is this a time when the whole world will collectively wake up?
