A few months ago, we revealed the launch of a straight-talking new podcast, brought to you by our CEO Tim Mercer. In only a matter of days, Between the Eyes quickly rocketed up the entrepreneur charts, and we were soon inundated with people asking when the next episodes would drop.

We’re delighted to confirm that the wait is over – back by popular demand, the first interview of season two is now live on Spotify and iTunes, with a new episode airing each consecutive Sunday.

Between the Eyes – Tim’s brainchild – was launched back in July, to provide listeners with an unfiltered and honest insight into the twists, turns and challenges facing businesspeople at varying stages in their careers.

Armed with a strong line up of interesting guests – from Dragon’s Den star and founder of makeup brand War Paint for men, Danny Gray, to trailblazer Harry Bliss, founder and #CEO of

Champion Health – the popularity of the series was evident as it soared up the entrepreneur podcast ranks by 200 places, to reach number 30 in a matter of weeks!

Commenting on the success of series one, Tim noted: “It was fantastic to see receive such a great response from our listeners. We set out to make the podcast as frank and interesting as possible, without skirting over sometimes uncomfortable topics.

“This new series is no different, as we uncover some of the biggest obstacles confronting the business world in the current climate, and some of the ‘chewiest’ leadership challenges people encounter. There’s everything from futurology to the Special Forces. I’m excited for our followers to listen for themselves.”

The first guest to step up to the mic for series two was Wayne Hoyle – a Yorkshireman who went from a council estate in Halifax, to encountering every major conflict since the mid-80s and receiving the Queen’s commendation for bravery.

Also set to feature on the show are Jamie Coan and Richard Peck, founders of Eison; Nicola Millard, futurist and principal innovations partner for BT; Jacob Hill, founder of Offploy; and onetime coach and captain of the England lacrosse team, Rick Cotgreave – who also happens to be the former school teacher of Vapour’s sales manager, Alec Stephens.
