The Empowerment podcast is hosted by David Winnie, former Scottish Premier League player and manager.

In our fifth episode, we welcome our guest, Scottish sports journalist and broadcaster, Bill Leckie.

Bill currently writes for the Scottish edition of #TheSun newspaper. He also makes regular contributions on #Talksport and BBC Radio 5 Live.

We speak to Bill about his #empowerment and the path he took to become the #journalist he wanted to be, and also why #mentalhealth is important specifically when it comes to regaining control of your own emotions.

Bill also gives us an insight into the issues surrounding racism both online and offline.
