Podcast with Dylan Gee
Sadly we had some technical issues during the podcast using the Riverside phone app, but otherwise Riverside has been great at helping me make decent podcasts with little technical knowledge.
Dylan Gee is a London-based tennis coach who has built a strong following with the Instagram account @tenniswithdylan. He used to play professional tennis and is now mixing tennis coaching with sports modeling and influencer engagements. During the podcast, we talked about his life as a “tennis influencer”, why he stopped playing professionally, his work ethic, and we also get into loads of other stuff as you can see in the time stamps below.
