Made With Love

By Tom Daley

Olympic champion diver turned knitting enthusiast, Tom Daley, is on a mission to explore the benefits of allowing the things we love to guide our lives! Each week, he speaks to a much loved celebrity about turning passion into purpose, how doing what they love has influenced the way they look at life, and crucially, all the lessons they’ve learned from the highs and lows along the way.

You’ll hear from elite athletes who have taken the sport they love to the next level, activists who are driven by passion for a great cause, as well as musicians who have music running through their veins! Tom’s guests also share who has made them with love; the people, places and things that have enabled them to be their truest selves and pursue a life they love.

Hillary Rodham Clinton

The first series of Made With Love may be over, but we simply couldn’t wait to share this very special episode with you! Regardless of your politics, you can’t deny that Hillary Rodham Clinton has been one of the most prominent women in global politics, and she is a history maker: Secretary Clinton is the only woman to date who has run as a major party nominee to be President of the United States of America.With a career spanning six decades, she has worked through a very interesting time in history when it comes to women’s rights and has had to constantly adapt to shifting perceptions. But, as she discusses with Tom, one thing has remained constant: her desire to help others. Hillary also speaks about how she’s stayed resilient through the ups and downs of public life, why compromise and change are not mutually exclusive, and the events that inspired her to work to improve the lives of others in the first place. From living at The White House as First Lady to traveling to over 100 countries as America’s Secretary of State, from blazing a trail as a working mother to helping a city heal from the harrowing terrorist attacks of 9/11; Hillary Rodham Clinton has plenty of wisdom to share in this podcast.   Hosted on Acast.

Antoni Porowski

This time, it’s all about food glorious food! Cook and TV personality, Antoni Porowski, joins Tom to chat about how his childhood love of food led to his breakthrough role in the hugely successful reality show, Queer Eye. Antoni also lifts the lid on what it’s like when the Fab Five all get together, how he grew up thinking everyone’s family was as obsessed with food as his was, and the challenges he’s overcome accepting his place as the food and wine expert on the show, despite not having any formal chef training. Antoni’s story is a perfect example of how people can flourish when they take the thing they love and make it what they do. We also learn that food is about so much more than just taste for Antoni, and that it’s been a way of communicating love throughout his life – although, heaven forbid you should forget to salt a meal in his presence!  Hosted on Acast.

Yusra Mardini

Tom knows all too well that athletes who make it to an Olympic Games must face trials and tribulations along the way, but few have had to overcome what Yusra Mardini did to make their sporting dreams come true.As the war in Yusra’s home country intensified, she left to seek safety for her and her family in Europe. In this episode, she speaks about the traumatic journey to Germany that followed, and what it was like to literally swim for her life when the small boat she was traveling in began to take on water. Not one to dwell on the negative, Yusra speaks passionately about the power of love and kindness in the face of adversity, and how finding hope and positivity in difficult situations is the key, not just to success, but also survival.Yusra also shares what her life was like in Syria, including growing up with her father as her coach! Why a break from doing what she loved reignited her passion, and how representing her parents at the Olympics was the start of a beautiful journey to accepting her status as a refugee and embracing all that she is.--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Below are some of the charities and organisations Yusra mentions in this episode:- The Swimmers- Free Humanitarians- #DropTheCharges Petition- There is a documentary about Sara Mardini’s story – The Long Distance Swimmer: Sara Mardini – and you can find out more about Sara’s story here- Yusra Mardini Foundation- Give Your Best UK- Choose Love- Epimonia Hosted on Acast.

Lando Norris

When it comes to professional sport, Formula 1 is about as competitive as it gets! Very few racing drivers ever get to race in a F1 car, and our guest this week was the youngest Brit ever to do it…Lando Norris has never had a plan B; after becoming Karting world champion at 14, he quit school early to pursue his love of racing. It was hard work making it to Formula 1, but Lando opens up about how he worked even harder to tackle self-doubt in his rookie F1 season.We learn about the people who made Lando with love and why it means so much to him to represent his family in a positive way, why he hates driving on the road, and that the key to his success might actually be a chicken and pineapple wrap!Buckle up...

Greta Thunberg

Activists really are at the forefront of turning passion into purpose, and this week we are joined by one of the most well-known climate justice activists on planet earth - Greta Thunberg!Greta brought climate change into mainstream consciousness in a way nobody else has and captured the hearts and minds of a generation anxious about the future of our planet, but it all started with just one girl with a hand-painted sign sat on the ground outside the Swedish Parliament.Greta talks about her life before activism, what led her initially to take action, and how realising that she was not alone in her desire to protect the planet has made her who she is today.  Greta is definitely someone who has made the thing she’s most passionate about an intrinsic part of her identity, but understandably climate activism weighs heavy sometimes, and so we also learn how she unwinds – spoiler alert, it involves knitting needles and the macarena – and her approach to hope and despair.Greta’s latest book The Climate Book is out now!
