“I feel like I rode my best. That’s what I wanted from the Olympics, and that’s what I came away with. With a bonus. I was just so stoked that I hadn’t let all my mates down who were sat at home in the pub watching”. Unsurprisingly, part two of my chat with @billy_morgman, pictured here on his way to a podium place at the recent Olympics, is already one of my most popular episodes ever.
This in-depth, intimate and all-encompassing insight into the mind of a top snowboarder during the biggest event of his life is essential listening. Haven’t had chance yet? You know what to do

@Timleroyis Thanks Tim, appreciate that
“What blows me away is what it represents. I’ve never owned something that has so much meaning attached to it”. Two weeks after his bronze medal showing at the #Pyeongchang Games, I caught up with @billy_morgman in London.
Like part one of my conversation with Billy, during which we examined his approach to life and snowboarding, and dug deep into his mental and physical preparation for the Olympics, this is a conversation on two levels.
Firstly – of course – we discuss all thing Pyeongchang, and get right into the details of exactly how it went down during the Slopestyle and Big Air. We discuss his mental preparation, relationship with coach Hamish McKnight, and the fine margins and infinitesimal decisions that make the difference.
But on another level, this one is about Billy the human, and how he’s coping with one of the defining moments of his life as it unfolds around him. As you might expect if you listened to part one, Billy tells that part of the story with the pitiless honesty, self deprecating humour and humbleness that make him such a popular figure in the snowboarding community.
