Episode 6 - Simon Farnsworth, CTO Broadcast Technology & Operations, Discovery

Will and I were delighted to be joined by Simon Farnsworth of Discovery this week. In a wonderfully open and honest discussion, we chat about how this astute and straight talking Yorkshireman entered the world of sports and broadcast (true story, he didn’t want to join the family business of the Yorkshire pudding factory!) and take it through his career, hearing about all some of his amazing achievements and the people who’ve inspired and motivated him along the way.

We cover the challenges and opportunities the last 6 months has thrown up and get his take on the future of broadcast and content consumption. Covering diversity as always – a subject he’s immensely passionate about – having a focus on education is a key area of our discussion. Getting to know our guests is one of our favourite parts…we love that he’s back playing rugby after a 16 year hiatus as a result of zoom-boredom!! A brilliant episode to record, more so to listen to, enjoy!!
