Bobby Berk

Bobby Berk grew up in a devoutly religious household in one of the most conservative parts of the US. He knew he was different from a lot of the people around him - but he didn’t have a way to figure it out. So he decided to run. He talks to Bryony about taking an unconventional path to success, the joys of working on Queer Eye -- and the bravest thing he ever did.  ---------------------------- For Bryony's latest column:http://bit.ly/2TMy439   For more from Bobby: www.instagram.com/bobbyberk For more Telegraph podcasts: Mad World - candid conversations about mental health, with everyone from Prince Harry to Fearne Cotton www.playpodca.st/madworld Fashion Unzipped - interviews and exclusives from the Telegraph's fashion team www.playpodca.st/unzipped     It's Your Money - an audio crash course in personal finance, from investing in stocks and shares to going freelance www.playpodca.st/iym     Audio Football Club - top-flight analysis and reaction, every Monday www.playpodca.st/afc

Eddie Marsan

Eddie Marsan grew up without much money about, and in a place where wanting to be an actor was like wanting to be an astronaut. It took him years to break through. But the struggle taught him some invaluable life lessons. He talks to Bryony about family, hard graft, and working with Scorsese and Spielberg. ----------Links: For Bryony's latest column:http://bit.ly/2TMy439 For more from Eddie: https://twitter.com/eddiemarsan For more Telegraph podcasts:https://apple.co/2B1H518

Chidera Eggerue - a.k.a. the Slumflower

Chidera Eggerue started a movement with one simple question: why does society insist she wear a bra?  Her quest for answers has made her one of the UK's leading campaigners for body positivity - and an inspiration to anyone feeling overlooked by 'traditional' notions of beauty.  But she wasn’t always so comfortable in her own skin. ---------- Links:  For Bryony's latest column: http://bit.ly/2TMy439 For more from Chidera: http://www.theslumflower.com/ For more Telegraph podcasts: https://apple.co/2B1H518

Rachel Shenton

A few years ago, Rachel Shenton had an idea for a film about a deaf girl born to a hearing family. She’d never written a screenplay before, but she put it to paper -- and ended up scraping together enough money to get it made.  What happened next took everyone by surprise. ------------- Links: Action on Hearing Loss www.actiononhearingloss.org.uk For more from Rachel: https://twitter.com/RachelShenton For Bryony's latest column: http://bit.ly/2TMy439
