Iwan Thomas and David Prutton: Full Chat shares a love for motorbikes

Full Chat is a motorcycling podcast co-hosted by former Team GB athlete turned media personality Iwan Thomas and ex-professional footballer David Prutton, a pundit and presenter for Sky Sports.

Full Chat launched on 24th April and has had an abundance of  celebrity guests already, including Paul Ainsworth, Kriss Akabusi, Peter Hickman and James Cracknell. The podcast is powered by Bikesure, the UK’s largest specialist motorbike insurer.

We spoke to Iwan and David about podcasting, their dream guests and where to start with their podcast…

Who are you and what’s your podcast about?

Iwan: I’m Iwan Thomas, a former European, Commonwealth and world champion athlete and I’ve always been a total bike nut. The podcast is about not only my love for bikes but our guest’s life stories of what riding motorbikes brings them.

David: My name is David Prutton, former footballer now presenter and motorbike nut. Now, with the lovely Iwan Thomas, we speak to the great and the good about our shared two-wheeled passion!

Why did you decide to start podcasting in the first place?

Iwan: I started to do the podcast because I believe it’s a brilliant way to get across my passion, enthusiasm and love for a subject close to my heart and in doing so chat to like-minded people who also have brilliant stories to share.

David: I love the medium and the pace of it. It’s as thrilling as working on live TV but in a different gear.

Which podcasts do you take inspiration from?

Iwan: There’s a number of different podcasts I like for different reasons but being a father of three at the moment I really love listening to Parenting Hell with Rob Beckett and Josh Widdicombe.

David: I Love SmartLess, The Rest is Entertainment, Not The Top 20 (NTT20) and Armchair Expert.

Who’s your dream guest for the podcast?

Iwan: I think my dream guest for Full Chat would be Valentino Rossi.

David: We’ve had some corkers so far but would I love Ewan McGregor or, on a totally unrelated non-bike vibe, Robert Plant. I LOVE (Led) Zeppelin!

What’s the biggest lesson you’ve learnt so far as a podcaster?

Iwan: The biggest lesson I’ve learned so far as a podcaster is don’t let Kriss Akabusi on the mic for too long!

David: More succinct questions!

Which episode would you say is the perfect introduction to your podcast?

Iwan: I’ve enjoyed all of our episodes so far, but if you want energy and excitement listen to the Kriss Akabusi one, which was our second episode.

David: Kriss Akabusi on episode two; energetic, irreverent and passionate!

Where can the Pod Bible readers find out more about you?

Iwan: Probably the best place to find out more about me would be on my social media, @iwanrunner.

David: Wherever you get your podcasts from, and via socials!
