Subscribe. Watch. Listen.



Breakups, Career, Divorce, Media, Parenting, Purpose


This week I’m honoured to welcome the master mechanic himself, Ant Anstead, to the show. Ant and I met serendipitously a few years back when he took my Breakup Recovery Course, and I’ve been blessed to call him a friend ever since.

Ant is the CEO and co-founder of Radford Motors and is responsible for overseeing the build process of every single bespoke, hand-made vehicle to meet exacting customer specifications. For many years, Ant built bespoke cars for elite clients and collectors all over the world and is best known for hosting car-centric television shows such as Celebrity IOU: Joyride, Radford Returns, For the Love of Cars and Wheeler Dealers, the number one most distributed show on The Discovery Channel. 

Join us as we chat about Ant’s career journey, life (and divorce) in the public eye, parenthood, and more.


  • How Ant transitioned from being a police officer to playing football to building cars
  • How he turned his passion for cars into a career
  • His journey into television
  • How he deals with the media, clickbait and life in the public eye
  • Ant’s perspective on parenting in the social media generation and his top advice for fathers
