The new meaning of ‘United’ with Rio Ferdinand OBE, sportsman, broadcaster and campaigner

When you’re a footballing legend how can you use your platform as a force for good?

That’s the conversation shared between Holly and Rio in this week’s fascinating episode.

Humble, honest and inspiring, Rio is renowned as one of our most beloved sportsmen but in more recent years Rio has turned his talents to breaking down taboos and campaigning for positive social change.

Rio talks openly about the experiences in life that have shaped him, from experiencing racism from childhood to now, his journey with grief, and his desire to instil purpose and drive in the next generation.

It’s a captivating conversation that pays tribute to a man who, while navigating some of life’s toughest challenges, has shown enormous generosity of spirit, compassion and kindness.

It is a must-listen episode for anyone looking to support positive progress.
