Welcome to episode 50 of The Dyslexia Life Hacks Show! In this special episode, host Matt is joined by his old friend Richard Elliott Kirk, who appeared on the first two episodes of the podcast. As they catch up, they discuss how the podcast has grown since its launch in July 2021 and some of the highlights from previous episodes.
Matt and Richard reminisce about their friendship that has lasted over 25 years, including Matt’s role as one of the best men at Richard’s wedding. They also share the genesis of The Dyslexia Life Hacks Show and how it has evolved since the first two episodes that Richard was on.
Listeners can expect to hear interesting highlights from previous episodes, such as Matt’s love of motor racing and his interview with racing driver Ben Hurst. Matt and Richard also recommend two very different episodes to new listeners to showcase the breadth of the podcast.
The discussion takes a deeper dive into Matt’s experience of dyslexia and how his understanding of it has evolved since launching the podcast. They share some life hacks and tips for public speaking, as they recall Matt’s talk at two Dyslexia Shows.
For long-term listeners, Matt and Richard reflect on the three rapidfire questions that Matt asks every guest on the podcast and some of the most interesting answers they’ve heard.
