DTMTS CHANGED MY LIFE

It pulled me out of a deep depression, enabled me to finally confront and fade down my demons at the age of 58, and has kick-started my business. It's clear that this is Simon Mundie's vocation/life purpose. He has to do it. Thank goodness. I feel an immense debt of gratitude.

NEVER MISS AN EPISODE

I’m a regular listener on my long runs, with back-to-back episodes regularly taking me through half marathons and training runs of up to 20 miles building up to another marathon. Simon’s interview style is exceptional and the research he does to deliver the conversations and dive into incredibly interesting areas with each guest, is outstanding. Thank you and can’t wait to see what future episodes will bring.

TOP CLASS

Simon has a fantastically positive and enthusiastic style that can’t help but rub off on the listener. Combined with thoughtful and exceptionally knowledgeable guests Don’t Tell Me The Score is essential selection for any podcast library.

NOTHING BETTER

Whether you’re interested in sport or not, this podcast is so relatable and engaging! Brilliant guests, inspiring stories and so much to learn from each one. Highly recommend.

YOU NEED TO LISTEN!

Best podcast I have found and don’t let the sport side put you off... I’ve passed this podcast onto people who aren’t massively involved or interested in sport and they too have spoken highly of it!

BRILLIANT PODCAST!

I’m so glad I found this. Simon is great at bringing out the best in his interviewees and letting them speak. You don’t need to be a fan of a particular sport or even sport in general to appreciate the life lessons and attributes covered.

GREAT PODCAST. NOT JUST FOR SPORTS FANS

I only discovered this in the last month or so, and I’m now hooked as it’s terrific. Simon has a naturalistic style and chats with the guests as if they’re old friends, and the subject matter is always engaging and stimulating.

LOVE LOVE LOVE

A fantastic podcast which, whatever the subject, never fails to inspire. The relaxed conversational style makes it a very easy listen and I never come away from an episode without having learned something, about myself, about others, about life.
