Adam Cox talks to Nadia Dubiel, a professional speaker and coach with a unique story about the importance of staying true to individuality. Growing up in a forest surrounded by nature, her idyllic childhood inspired a different outlook that didn’t fit in well with her peers when she started school - where the mentality was to conform at all costs. Nadia’s attempts to be accepted led to years of unhappiness and stress, and only when she embraced her true self did her physical and mental health improve. Nadia says the pressure for everyone to be the same is turning us into zombies, blindly following the status quo. She shares some tips on how to escape the zombie apocalypse.
This is MoneyBall, the podcast about what happens off the pitch –with Georgie Frost and Lee Boyce. On today's episode, the duo are talking football transfers with sports lawyer and author of Done Deal, Daniel Geey. We ask some of the key questions: Who holds the balance of power? Are agents really just greedy money grabbers? How much work goes on behind the scenes that we don’t see? How do you value players? And why can't Zinedine Zidane just get rid of Gareth Bale? Aaron Wan-Bissaka for example has joined Manchester United for £50million. Has that huge sum now just become a normal fee for good players, not exceptional ones – and where does it end? We also talk about how social media is shaping the modern day footballer – and what Brexit could actually mean for the Premier League in England.
