A Conversation about "Rethinking Success" with Ambassador Doug Holladay
Leader and lecturer Doug Holladay's life path has taken him from degrees at top universities to Goldman Sachs, then on to the White House and serving at the US State Department as a special ambassador to South Africa. He has met a lot of people and seen a lot of leadership along the way. What he's witnessed is that, all too often, "successful" people end up experiencing emptiness, isolation and depression as the unintended fruits of their very achievements. His new book, and this conversation, focus on how we all might go about "Rethinking Success".

In Conversation with Higgidy founder Camilla Stephens
A career in food was always more tempting than school for Camilla Stephens, who left halfway through her A-levels to attend Leith’s School of Food and Wine. She spent the next few years working in catering before joining Good Housekeeping magazine. Next came travel in America where she fell in love with coffee culture: returning to the UK, Camilla then developed the food range for the Seattle Coffee Company and Starbucks. In 2003, the newly freelance Camilla set up the Higgidy brand, making handmade pies near her home in West Sussex. Today, the company range is available in most major food retailers. The business may have grown, but Camilla’s home-cooking philosophy and use of kitchen cupboard ingredients remain at the heart of the Higgidy kitchen. Camilla is married to James; they have two teenage children, Kate and Jack and a golden retriever who is very aware of being the most popular member of the family.

In conversation with Rob Wickham, Bishop of Edmonton
Next time you get a letter from a bishop you'll see their signature has a plus-sign by their name: it's symbolic of the blessing of the Cross. But its also perfectly apt that it's a plus-sign, because that person is someone who has dedicated their life to bringing addition and positivity to all the people around them. None more so than this week's guest on the "Faith with Haith" podcast: +Rob is a man with a great mind and a kind heart who works tirelessly to make this world a better place. (And I promise I'm not just saying that because he's my boss....)

In conversation with World Bank water expert Anders Jagerskog
How does a lad from the suburbs of Stockholm end up negotiating for equitable use of resources in the Middle East? How does a self-confessed sauna addict advocate for peace and understanding in transboundary water disputes in North Africa? And where does faith fit into all of this, and a busy family life, for this week's guest on "Faith with Haith"? Ladies and gentlemen, I give to you: the mighty viking, and lovely man, Anders Jagerskog.

In conversation with (cool and kind) professional drummer Terl Bryant
Terl Bryant is not only one of the kindest men you will ever meet, he is totally cool and insanely talented: he would have to be in order to play for, amongst others, Pete Murphy (Bauhaus), John Paul Jones (Led Zeppelin) and Peter Gabriel. We became firm friends in the early '90s when I was asked to drive the bus for his band at the time, Iona, on the Irish leg of their tour. By some miracle we all survived: his drumming ability and my driving licence both remained unscathed. This episode of the "Faith with Haith" podcast is many things, but it is mainly two old friends catching up after many years.

In conversation with singer, actor, photographer (and ice-dancer?!) Stefan Booth
This week's episode of "Faith with Haith" was not supposed to happen. My son was booked in to have a pretty big operation in the world-famous and wonderful Great Ormond Street Hospital which is, rather extraordinarily, in my parish. Suffice it to say I was a nervous wreck. until my old pal Stef put to work the age-old friendship practice of "just showing up". The more we chatted the more I realised that we should be recording it. So we both fired up our voice memo apps and this was the result...

A conversation about having faith in yourself, with entrepreneurs Nicholas Dasgupta and Steven Michael-O'Hara
So here we are at the start of a new year. Perhaps you have made some fresh resolutions to take on some new creative adventure? Perhaps you have decided it's time to turn your back on some unhealthy practices? Perhaps you want to chart a whole new course with your career? I believe that to do any of these things you will need help from God, but you will also need to find a new confidence, fresh faith, in yourself. In this episode of "Faith with Haith" I explore the concept and power of self-belief with two inspiring entrepreneurs. The faith that Nicky and Steven display, both within and beyond themselves, will supercharge your resolve to make a difference this year.

However you know Ugo Monye this is your chance to see more of the heart of the man and come to know and love him even more. Tune into the "Faith with Haith" podcast today.

In conversation (and song) with composer and guitarist David Clifton
You know how there are some people who seem to be able to do loads of different things...and not just do them, but do them BRILLIANTLY? Dave ("The Doctor") Clifton is one such person: making the planet a richer and more beautiful place with both his deep insights and his broad-ranging creativity. To be honest, initially I was excited to talk about his lifetime of playing lead guitar for famous performing artists, but the way Dave describes the art of pottery and sculpture opened my eyes and heart in a way I really wasn't expecting.(NB: This episode also features the drinking of holy beers and me playing percussion...for neither of which shall I apologise...)

In conversation with RAF Group Captain Willy Hackett, MBE
What do you get when you combine one of the finest gentlemen on Earth with one of the greatest pilots in the sky?: Group Captain Peter “Willy” Hackett, MBE…Britain’s answer to Tom Cruise’s Maverick…that’s what. In this episode of the “Faith with Haith” podcast, recorded especially for the Remembrance Day weekend, Willy and I talk honestly about the realities of military service, both in the past and today; we talk honestly about what it is to have faith in the modern world; we talk honestly about his infectious passion for flying; and we talk honestly about why both the world and my trousers are better off for me personally having my feet firmly on terra firma…

A conversation about "hearing" God, with author Bill Cahusac
This week on the Faith with Haith podcast: Bill Cahusac. He is one of the finest men I know: loving husband, great dad, true leader...and brilliant car driver (...?). We would all agree that faith is hard, and God often feels distant and silent, yet the Bible is full of stories of God speaking to humans. But are they just stories? If you've ever wondered what it means to listen to and hear from God then tune in now to hear how to tune in.

A conversation about freedom from bulimia with Nici Cahusac
This week on the Faith with Haith podcast, my guest Nici Cahusac gets very honest about the experience and psychology of bulimia, with which she struggled for many years. Ultimately it's a story of hope: Nici was miraculously set free through prayer and her life was changed forever. Today, between running an organisation, raising three teenagers and competing at the highest level of amateur athletics, she retains the desire to see other men and women set free in the same way.

In conversation about eating disorders with Carolina Mountford, "Ambassador of Hope"
You know that feeling when you've had a conversation with someone but then afterwards you kick yourself, wishing you'd asked a whole load of other questions? The big downside of creating and presenting the "Faith with Haith" podcast is that, to be honest, I have that feeling every single week; and never more so than when Carolina Mountford was extraordinarily honest with me when I first interviewed her. Thankfully Carolina agreed to come back and open up some more. Listen in now: this is important and special.

In conversation with award-winning comedian Milton Jones
Picture the scene: an empty stage, a theatre full of people, a single microphone on a stand in a pool of light. There's nowhere to hide. It's now on you alone to entertain this expectant crowd. Now THAT is most people's idea of the ultimate nightmare. But not today's guest. Milton Jones is one of the best-known comedians in the UK, selling out theatres country-wide and often starring in popular shows on TV and radio, including the long-running hit TV show "Mock the Week". But he's not all genius jokes and crazy hair: listen in now and enjoy getting to know a man of thoughtfulness and empathy, intelligence and faith.

In conversation with Ger Jones, vicar of L.A.
Being a professional church pastor is not an easy job and, as a result, it's all too easy to do it in a really detached way: it's all too easy to be distant and become untouchable. But with Ger Jones you get something very different. You get deep honesty and true warmth up close; you get a real man living real life and loving a church along the way. He is the real deal and it's my honour to call him my friend.
