Tom Speight is an incredible singer songwriter from London with over 1.1 MILLION monthly Spotify listeners. I found his song Into The Night through the magic of Spotify algorithms and I'm so glad I did. He has had a crazy couple of years personally, and when I saw that he was coming to Bristol - I HAD to grab him for a chat before his show. Such a positive outlook on life considering the ups and downs he's experienced. Not one to miss! Also... it's the LAST episode of series 2?! How did that happen? See you in 2020 for series 3!We dive into fate, online dating, family, Crohn's disease, being an independent artist, his ideal death row meal (my favourite thing to discuss ever!) and more.Follow the Podcast: @wedivedeeperFollow Kate: @katemcgillFollow Tom: @tomspeightmusicGet the FULL episodes a whole WEEK earlier for as little as $1 a month!Support the show (http://www.patreon.com/katemcgill)
Katie Sky is none other than one of my BEST FRIENDS! But also just so happens to be an insanely talented singer and songwriter. You may recognise her from her song Monsters, which was remixed by Timeflies back in 2014. Since then she's flown across the globe writing in various camps and sessions - and has very recently just got married (!!). She's one of my favourite people on planet EARTH, and I am so happy and excited that you guys can get to know her a bit better via this episode. We dive into her life purpose, toxic people and relationships, being assertive, communication, depression, assertiveness and songwriting!Follow the Podcast: @wedivedeeperFollow Kate: @katemcgillFollow Katie: @katieskyGet the FULL episodes a whole WEEK earlier for as little as $1 a month!Support the show (http://www.patreon.com/katemcgill)
Today's guest is Claudia Fragapane - you may recognise her from Strictly Come Dancing back in 2016. She's also an insane gymnast. She came to prominence at the 2014 Commonwealth Games, where she was the first English woman to win four gold medals since 1930. How bloody impressive is that?!She's only just turned 22 so I'm sure some of my questions were quite a lot to take ha! I'm mega grateful to her for opening up to me though and letting me in on her crazy little life.We dive into how she became a gymnast, her crazy training schedule, the Olympics, Strictly Come Dancing, body image, online trolling and more.Follow the Podcast: @wedivedeeperFollow Kate: @katemcgillFollow Claudia: @claudiafragGet the FULL episodes a whole WEEK earlier for as little as $1 a month!Support the show (http://www.patreon.com/katemcgill)
My guest today is the wonderful Josie Gibson! You may recognise her from series 11 of Big Brother in the UK which she won by a CRAZY 77.5% of the public vote - the highest percentage out of any other Big Brother series (!!). She's also a regular TV presenter on ITV and has recently become a Mum to the insanely cute little guy, Reggie. Oh, and she has the thickest Bristolian accent I think I've ever heard. I can't tell you how friendly, down-to-earth and easy to chat to she was. She put me at ease immediately. I'm so grateful she let me dive into her brain and ask her my weird and wonderful questions.

Imaginary Future (Jesse Epstein) is a SUPER talented singer and songwriter with over 2.8 million listeners on Spotify (!!). He's also one half of the fucking awesome duo Jome. Get to know his/their music and thank me later. I remember listening to his album Fire Escape on repeat for a solid two years. I was lucky enough to meet him through his wonderful wife Kina Grannis - and since then have had the pleasure of getting to know him on a personal level. He may be one of the kindest and most authentic guys I've ever met in my entire life. Seriously.

My guest today is Josephine Vander Gucht from the incredible pop-duo Oh Wonder! Dan and I recorded a Meadowlark EP with Ant from Oh Wonder back in 2014 - just as they were gearing up to release their first single Body Gold. Since then, their career has gone from strength to strength. I can't tell you how satisfying it feels to watch two such crazy talented songwriters actually get what they deserve in the music industry. I left Jose feeling SO GOOD about myself. She has such an infectious happy energy that I've not come across in literally anyone else. Her confidence and self-worth is almost tangible. It'll be impossible for you to listen to this episode and not feel better about yourself after. I can't thank her enough for giving me some of her time! This is one you don't want to miss.We dive into diet culture, body shaming, food issues, self confidence, self love, Oh Wonder, touring, what it means to be a woman in the music industry and much more!Follow the Podcast: @wedivedeeperFollow Kate: @katemcgillFollow Josephine: @iamjosephinevgGet the FULL episodes a whole WEEK earlier for as little as $1 a month!Support the show (http://www.patreon.com/katemcgill)
My guest today is GABRIELLE BLOODY APLIN, ladies and gentlemen! We both grew up on YouTube together back in 2008 - and I remember seeing her videos and thinking... holy mother of God. Who is this woman?? Her MGMT 'Electric Feel' cover still blows my mind to this day. She was wonderful enough to invite Meadowlark on tour with her after we'd only been a band for a few months! She's been nothing but kind and supportive to me over the years and it was a total pleasure to sit down with her and chat PROPERLY after only ever really saying hi and bye to eachother at gigs. She's just announced the release date of her third album Dear Happy, alongside an absolute banger of a debut single 'Kintsugi'! I could go on and on, but instead I'll just highly recommend you let yourself indulge in her beauty on Spotify (after listening to our episode of course)!We dive into what it means to be truly free, burning out after her extensive PR/touring schedule, her ADHD diagnosis and what it feels like to live with that, mental health in general, veganism, being your own boss and lots more!Follow the Podcast: @wedivedeeperFollow Kate: @katemcgillFollow Gabrielle: @gabrielleaplinGet the FULL episodes a whole WEEK earlier for as little as $1 a month!Support the show (http://www.patreon.com/katemcgill)
Woody is the drummer for the ridiculously talented and successful band Bastille. In June, they released their third album Doom Days and it's personally my all-time favourite. I can't listen to their song Joy and not feel exactly that. Being in a band that size and touring that much has to come with some crazy ups and downs, so I was so excited to have the opportunity to sit down with him and pick apart what it's like to live a life like that. Having toured just a fraction of the amount they have, I know how hectic it can get - so for him to be on the road whilst having two kids and a beautiful wife at home - is all sorts of admirable and cool. I loved chatting to him so much. Hope you enjoy!We dive into how Bastille began, Brexit, their intense touring schedule, becoming a Dad, the best gigs they've played, their rise to fame, the bits about the music industry people don't know and much more.That amazing book I was talking about! - The Untethered SoulFollow the Podcast: @wedivedeeperFollow Kate: @katemcgillFollow Woody: @woodybangsthedrumsGet the FULL episodes a whole WEEK earlier for as little as $1 a month!Support the show (http://www.patreon.com/katemcgill)
Billie Marten is a 20 year old singer-songwriter from Ripon in North Yorkshire! She is without DOUBT the coolest 20 year old I've ever had the pleasure of spending time with. I don't think she'd mind me saying that she's an old soul in a young body. She has such insight and wisdom for her age and her incredible voice and music reflects that. She released her first EP at the age of FIFTEEN (!!) and her second EP just a year later. She was also nominated for the Sound of 2016 award. Basically, she's amazing. You can check out her new album Feeding Seahorses By Hand now - you won't be disappointed.We dive into body image, social media, being a female musician in 2019, seasonal affective disorder, anti depressants, family and much more.That amazing book I was talking about! - The Untethered SoulFollow the Podcast: @wedivedeeperFollow Kate: @katemcgillFollow Billie: @billiemartenGet the FULL episodes a whole WEEK earlier for as little as $1 a month!Support the show (http://www.patreon.com/katemcgill)
Sarah Goodhart is best known for appearing in the 14th series of Geordie Shore. (She was also on Ex On The Beach!) She's now a make-up artist and a bloody good one. She's gorgeous and very funny with bags of insight and wisdom on mental health and what it looks like to take care of yourself in today's society! I loved talking to her so bloody much.Today we dive into all things reality tv, her traumatic experience on Geordie Shore, depression, anxiety, therapy, daily routines and much more.That amazing book I was talking about! - The Untethered SoulFollow the Podcast: @wedivedeeperFollow Kate: @katemcgillFollow Sarah: @sarahgoodhartGet the FULL episodes a whole WEEK earlier for as little as $1 a month!Support the show (http://www.patreon.com/katemcgill)

My guest today is Mr Joshua Keogh from the one and only AMBER RUN! Honestly... we wrote with him the day after we recorded this episode and I could NOT get over his voice when he started singing in the room. It blew my tiny little mind. He didn't go out of tune once. And fuck me, what an incredible writer and lyricist. It's likely you'll have heard Amber Run's music - their two songs 'I Found' and '5am' are two of my all-time favourites. And those two songs ALONE have over 122 MILLION plays on Spotify! Ridiculous but so so deserved.Today we dive into anxiety & depression, suicide attempts, religion, relationships, family, grief and a whole lot more.Follow Joshua: @joshuafabiokeoghFollow Amber Run: @amberrunFollow Kate: @katemcgillFollow the Podcast: @wedivedeeperSupport the Podcast: http://www.patreon.com/katemcgillSupport the show (http://www.patreon.com/katemcgill)

I'm the singer and it's the best job in the world. I am definitely NOT going to put my own stats up here. But go and listen to Meadowlark if you haven't yet!

Kina Grannis is an amazing singer, insane songwriter and a YouTuber! Holy hell, I love this woman. Endlessly. I stumbled across her YouTube videos when I was 18 and immediately became obsessed.

We've become real life friends and it makes me so happy.She has over 1.4 million YouTube subscribers and has over 244 MILLION video views. Her talent is incredible and amazing but the human behind it is even better, would you believe?
