Matt’s chats are spot on. Everything from the relaxed and informed nature of the topics to the lovely guitar riff jingle makes this a heartwarming and inspirational listen.

Came here with no expectations just to listen the Mikey February conversation. Turned out I listened almost everything and I have been listen at least one a day. Matthew makes every conversation a super interesting story with his brilliant questions. I am kind of a surf, skate, snowboard nerd and...Read full review »

Not only does Matt Barr get hold of some of the most interesting voices in board sports - he also manages to turn every interview into deeply human, connected conversations. Old school and big hearted, every episode offers a fresh perspective. Recommended listening for everyone, even armchair...Read full review »
Kasper Michael via Apple Podcasts · Denmark · 10/23/22
Matt has introduced me to some people I would never have thought of has being interesting as i am more surfing oriented but his style and obvious knowledge of each sport just draws you in. Add to that the Type 2 shows and i always look forward to seeing a new edition land

What more can I say,Matt has a very good interview skill and the guests are positive, fascinating and interesting.Well done and thank you for a great podcast!

Avid mtber and past snowboarder that hasn’t kept up with the “scene”. Found this podcast by accident but love it. Unrushed stories and tales from a heap of athletes and adventurers I’d never heard of, as well as a few of my teenage idols. Next road trip your on, go back to the start and simply...Read full review »

Not sure about the long (occasionally 2 hour long), rambling, hyper indulgent intros, often supported by a “guest”. However, if you can persevere through these, the last 5-10 minutes of each episode usually absolutely bang. Once you hear, “thank f*** they’re gone”, you know things are about to...Read full review »

Thank you. Amazing content, different stories. Perfect voice. Keep on going lads!
Mircea Nikkels via Apple Podcasts · Netherlands · 07/21/21
This podcast is simply great. You get drawn in by the big hitters but you stay for the interesting stories that every guest has to tell. Who knew that action sports would be such an interesting lens through which to consider everything going on in the world today? I can’t recommend it enough.
KT__H via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 07/02/21
What can I say, just simply one of the best podcasts out there. Matt has a fantastic way of making this podcast sound like you’re sat around listening in to a conversation between some of the most interesting and fascinating people involved in the action sports world. Never feels forced, always...Read full review »

Paul surf swim via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 04/05/21
I love this podcast because of the sheer range of guests. You have the legends like Legends Tom Carrol, Terje Haakonsen, Kelly Clark, Rob Machado and Jamie Thomas, through to the current crop of super stars like Travis Rice, Rachel Atherton, Alex Honnold, Jeremy Jones and Danny MacAskill. Then...Read full review »

I've really been enjoying these shows, since the first episode. Brilliantly crafted naturally delivered and consistently excellent. Always looking forward to the next episode to arrive - and enjoy taking with me on my hikes around the hills. Highly recommend this - go and subscribe!!Read full review »

Great podcast - freewheeling conversations - varied guest list - what's not to like?! As a 'looking forwards' skier/biker rather than a snowboarder/surfer/skater there still so much good stuff here - from the GOAT Terje to round-Britain swimming Ross Edgeley via Bas Keep and more, and...Read full review »

Just listened to the Dan Milner interview. I want to re-live my life now. At age 52, is it to late to turn things around and follow my dreams. If Dan needs an ageing apprentice or even just an assistant, please consider me. 😂
P-man7 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 10/29/20
Looking sideways is an awesome podcast! Big up for great work. However there’s room for improvements > please work on diversity of Type 2. Out of 13 interviews so far online, 1 was done with a woman. It’s a shame …
GartnerD via Apple Podcasts · France · 09/23/20
Excellent podcast, with a fascinating and eclectic mix of guests and subjects. Often leave me yearning to go snowboarding, surfing .. or even open a coffee shop. Keep up the great work Matt
laughingcimmuter747 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 09/11/20
Looking Sideways offers an unabashedly thoughtful take on our the act of getting radical (no matter what your board looks like.) Despite the occasional big word, the host always comes off like one of us- A little older, a little wiser, but still in love with the people, places, and stories that...Read full review »

Doesn’t matter if it’s not your sport or scene. Matt’s style and the guests stories are really great. Cheers

This fella has gotten better and better and after the allyship one i had to leave a review. He actually knows a bit about the people he’s talking to so doesn’t jump around with questions like most interviewers, just follows where the conversation leads them and just occaisionally steers back...Read full review »

Where do I start? What a find, can’t believe this has passed me by for so long.

Been a fan of this podcast for a while.

In the rare event interviews don’t go to plan Matts humble and honest take on opinions...Read full review »

It's 20 years since I moved to Chamonix to work on a Snowboard magazine and listening to this podcast be it snowboarders, skiers, surfers, industry people and other pro athletes just reminds me of great times spent with people like Matt.

Motorcycle Deluxe via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 02/04/20
Mellow enough to know you can kick back and relax listening to Matt for an hour, with the added bonus of swerving the usual intrusive bilge that unwanted ads bring. Jonathan weaver got it right when he said loads of us use this to keep “locked into the snow and surf community “on a weekly...Read full review »

For anyone who likes to live vicariously through the life stories of rad and positive people, the relaxed style and ambient sounds on some of these interviews is everything! Matt puts you by the sea, in the chalet, on the side of a cliff, under the archways and you feel like you’re part of the...Read full review »

Only discoverd this recently, now working through a backlog! Great guests including many (if not all!) of my snowboarding heroes.

I love Matts Interviews. A lovely look into the action sport scene. So much information for everybody whos ever so slightly into adrenalin sports. Listening since years!
Ellevandaat via Apple Podcasts · Germany · 12/30/19
This is hands down the best Action Sports podcast out there and even better no adverts!

Thanks Matt for your podcasts, great guests, great stories, truly inspiring!

Stumbled across this after listening to another snowboard podcast (FNRad). Love the range of guests and the chat, good conversations rather than just dry interviews.

I drive up to 9 hours a day as a delivery driver and I go through music and podcasts like it’s nobody’s business. And every week I look forward to another episode from the looking sideways podcast.

Feeble attempt at a title but Matt’s podcast is simply the best. You don’t have to be into action sports to get something good out of this. Each podcast leads you unexpectedly to another that you may or may not have considered. But at the end of the day, they are all good in their own way with...Read full review »

An antedote to the goldfish attention span posts of social media. Digs so much deeper. Some real classics in there! Keeps getting better and better.
verytea via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 04/21/19
Well worth a listen. Keeps me going when I’m stuck away from mountains and water (which is most of the time). If you’re just coming to it, go to the back catalogue. So much good stuff!

Matt Barr does an incredible job as an interviewers day chooses amazing and important guests. Thanks for doing the show! And keep up the stellar work!

Just finished my 50th episode so thought it was long overdue to write a review (sorry Matt). This is hands down the best podcast in my library!

Really enjoyed listening to your podcasts. Especially as you have such a variety of people you interview. I love the fact you let each podcast take it’s own path.

I just stumbled across this and it was worth the trip. Bas Keep interview is a keeper. Mickey Smith was pretty good too. Tagholm a little on message for my liking. Easkey was brilliant.
