Looking Sideways Podcast Episode 009: Lesley McKenna, Blazing Trails
The latest episode of the Looking Sideways podcast is up! And yes I finally managed to interview a woman – the great Lesley McKenna, three-time Olympian, mastermind behind GB Park and Pipe and all round European snowboarding royalty.
Lesley came to see me in Brighton and we chatted about her life and career.
It was a hugely enjoyable, inspiring chinwag with a true action sports visionary, full of peerless insights from Lesley’s career with value for anybody interested in how somebody at the top of their game has managed to sustain excellence over a two-decade career. Don’t miss it.

It’s taken almost ten episodes, but I’ve finally managed to interview somebody who isn’t a man.
Dropping next week is episode 009, my chat with three-time Olympian, snowboarder, skier, surfer, Mum, honcho of @gbparkandpipe and all round force of nature @lesleymckenna.
Lesley came to visit me in Brighton and we had a proper good chinwag about her amazing career and lifetime of snow sports achievement. If inspiring chats with visionary, pioneering people are your bag, you won’t want to miss this one. That’s Lesley getting stuck right in, 📷 by @josie.mcnamara
Have you checked out episode 008 of the @WeLookSideways action sports podcast yet? It’s a good ‘un, where @barrmatt is ‘catertained’ by the live-fire cooking force of nature that is @djbbq, aka Christian Stevenson.
You might know him as the barbecue guy from @’jamieoliver’s @jamiesfoodtube, but in reality Christian’s action sports roots run deep. Matt and Christian discussed his long career, encompassing everything from directing Odd Man Out and @jamiroquaihq in the seminal Light Years video, to how he created his latest DJ BBQ persona. Expect hugely entertaining, scurrilous tales from a life well lived and a career like no other.
