It was kismet, as far as I’m concerned. I met our guest today at a random event and have pinched myself, ever since, to make sure it wasn’t a dream. It seemed everyone in the industry knew Thomas Soden, but me. I had no idea I had been speaking with one of the world’s best bar consultants, bar owners, bartenders, and so much more.

When I asked him for advice about starting a podcast, he could not have been more supportive and I treasure our friendship. After more than two years since that initial encounter, almost a year and half of Lush Life and 60 podcasts, I finally sat down with him at Nine Lives, his bar in London Bridge, to get a glimpse into what drives him to be the best.
