The reality of fame, and making your parents proud.
If you are of a certain age, you will probably have first come across Rick Edwards on channels 4's T4, where he worked as a presenter alongside the likes of Jameela Jamil, Nick Grimshaw, and Matt Edmunson.
Following his four years on T4, Rick has presented a litany of TV and radio shows. Recently, Rick has co-hosted a podcast called Science(ish), with quantum physicist Dr. Michael Brooks, and has co-written two books of the same name.
In our first episode of 2021, we talk to Rick about his relationship with football, his life as a maths student at Cambridge University, learning the tools required to open up more, and the realities of fame.
