About TLT

The Lockdown Tactics started in April, 2020. A casual ‘catch-up’ telephone conversation between Kris Boyd and Robert Snodgrass resulted in an idea to do a podcast during ‘lockdown’ in the UK to try and bring a bit of light during the dark days. The core focus of the podcast was to be Mental Health. Kris and Robert would use their contacts in the world of sport, to interview them but having a strong message about personal wellbeing that people in every walk of life could relate to.

One week later the podcast was up and running.

The first guest was former Chelsea and England captain, John Terry. Jack Wilshere and Darren Fletcher quickly followed to open up on their careers and the mental challenges they have faced.

The main reason for the Mental Health focus this is that Kris lost his young brother, Scott, to suicide in September, 2016. He started his own charity in 2018 to help raise awareness and funds for various causes connected to Mental Health and Wellbeing.

Robert has also seen people close to him affected by this illness and wanted to do his bit to help tackle this widespread issue.
