Radio Interview Will Stoddart

Radio Lifestyle´s Abi Lindsay Clark returns with another programme and today she interviews Will Stoddart the co founder of Melio a British company whose first market is in Spain soon to be followed with a setup in the UK. Melio opened its doors here in Madrid in October last year offering convenient, frequent health testing to the general public.

Will is not a doctor but in 2007, living in Sweden with his wife and small daughter their lives suddenly changed dramatically. On a Wednesday his wife went in for a scan due to headaches and on the Thursday, she was on an operating table to remove a tumour. It was during the following 3 years while receiving healthcare, when William realised how terrible the journey was for everyone. His wife sadly lost her battle in 2010 just after the birth of their son.

This made him realise that he could do something to help and in 2011 he set up a data analytics company with his twin brother helping people who used Jawbones to interpret the data and answer questions such as ‘If I stop drinking coffee, do I sleep better?’ They later realised that with blood testing they could be more accurate and so, 4 of them including a specialist doctor set up a Stockholm based consumer healthcare company. William explained how in Sweden at the time you had to explain your symptoms and then you might get a blood test based only on those. There was no access to new diagnostics and ranges of tests unless you went private and at great expensive.  They tested over 100,000 customers and a huge 80% of these had some form of health problem.

Music Life Radio interview Alex Lebron

During the quarantine period, a wonderful moment of human connection through the magic of music sparked off when a pianist started to play on his balcony and suddenly a multi talented instrumentalist joined him by playing his sweet saxophone. It was, then, when the streets of Barcelona became a huge stage, with the spotlight on both artists’ balconies, so they could feel the warmth and the excitement of their new and unexpected audience who clapped loudly with the reverb of their music all around. Eventually the video went viral and really successful because of its authenticity. From then on, our second guest went through the ripple effect when his life transformed completely.

In this interview you will have the chance to meet the sax player Alex Lebron Torrent  born in Cali (Colombia) but with an international background that goes from Sweden to the United States and Spain. He is an interesting musician, actor and model with a life full of interesting facts that have shaped his music and who he is now. It is really worth discovering the fascinating adventures of his life in this fantastic journey throughout his life

Enjoy the interview!
