‘Living a Remarkable life’ the 300th show with guest former Scotland Rugby Captain Rob Wainwright and Chris Cooper

Do you want to live a remarkable life? During our 300th unique show I share some observations from interviewing many remarkable guests over the years whilst talking with someone who is leading a remarkable life: Rob Wainwright studied medicine at Magdalene College (Cambridge University) and gained Blues in both Boxing and Rugby. He went on to gain 37 caps for Scotland. He captained the national side 16 times and in 1997 toured with the British and Irish Lions to South Africa. Meanwhile Rob pursued his medical career with the Royal Army Medical Corps, reaching the rank of Major. On leaving the Army and retiring from rugby, Rob and his wife Romayne decided on a change of scene, moving to the Isle of Coll in the Hebrides with their 4 children where they now run an extensive mixed livestock farm. Join us to reflect on living a remarkable life with Rob’s story which included Rugby (and boxing) star to feeling fulfilled as a livestock farmer in a
remote Scottish community.

This show will be airing live on 24th August 2018 at 8am(PT)/11am(EST)/4pm(GMT). To listen please visit http://www.voiceamerica.com/show/1959/
