James English is a podcaster, documentary maker, comedian, model and former star of Glasgow based reality TV show Glow.
His ‘Anything Goes Podcast’ features the hard hitting real-life stories of Sports People, Comedians, Actors, Criminals, Porn Stars, and Politicians as he explores topics from murder, depression and suicide, to sex, love, and comedy. In a short space of time, his show has been viewed and listened to across social media more than half a million times.
His latest documentary sees him sleep on the streets, in his hometown of Glasgow, for seven days and nights, bringing to light the desperation and tragedy of being ‘Homeless at Christmas’, and shows the plight and passion of people from both sides of the problem.
An incredibly powerful and inspiring conversation that has it all: growing up in Glasgow’s Possilpark, James’ personal battles with addiction, his experience on Glow, his future plans, spiritual awakening and transformation, purpose, legacy, and changing the world.
