Transcript snippet from podcast

Chris and Claire

C – So massive hello to all our friends at home, today I have the absolute delight of being joined Clare Vosper. Clare is the wife of Chris Vosper who if you haven’t seen it already, I really suggest you watch the podcast I did with Chris. Fascinating guy, amazing history from the Royal Marines to flying Apache gunships in Afghanistan. Chris and Clare now run V-Force which is lots of things and I won’t try and sum it all up now but it’s basically a Special Forces driving experience, very high Octane stuff.

C – And I want to say great on achieving your 200 mile run, definitely well done!

C – So for those that don’t know instead of spending Christmas with the family I set out to run 200 miles instead.

C – We’re in awe of you as ever.

C – Thank you. Today Clare we’re going to do something unique, because no-one has ever really asked me about my Eating Smoke memoir or my story in Hong Kong…

#154 Suzanne Sharkey | Former Undercover Drugs Officer | Bought The T-Shirt Podcast

Prev 1 of 1 Next
Prev 1 of 1 Next

Suzanne Sharkey is a former undercover drugs officer and the co-executive director of ‘LEAP’ – the Law Enforcement Action Partnership – law enforcement personnel for drug law & social justice reform.

Transcript snippet from podcast

Chris and Suzanne

C – So we should say thank you to Neil Wood, straight off the back who’s put us in touch.

S – Yeah sure.

C – For our friends at home, I did a podcast with Neil the other day. Neil’s worked prolifically, if that’s the right word in the undercover substance misuse area. At the end of our podcast Neil said you should speak to Suzanne, and that’s what we’re going to do. So I tuned in the other night to your launch of L.E.A.P. Scotland, feel free to correct me if I get the terminology wrong. So L.E.A.P. is the Law Enforcement Action Partnership, and my understanding is that it is a partnership of former police professionals who have recognised the UK’s drug policy is failing, am I right?

S – Yeah for sure, it’s an international organisation and it was started in the USA originally as law enforcement against prohibition, which is a nice snappy, you know, you get what it says on the tin, but because of how much drug policy is integral into everyday people’s lives even though they don’t realise it, to sort of open up working with other organisations, it’s been changed to law enforcement action partnership…

#51 Bought The Tee Shirt Podcast | Robbie Williams and Chris Thrall PART 1

Prev 1 of 1 Next
Prev 1 of 1 Next

I’m Chris Thrall, a former Royal Marines Commando. This is my podcast chat with the megastar Robbie Williams. Part Two is here: https://youtu.be/laNDDa-re78 We discuss EVERYTHING you won’t hear in the Media.

Transcript snippet from podcast

Chris and Robbie

C – Robbie how are you brother?

R – I’m really good actually, it’s nice to speak to you. Your empathy and compassion really, really touched me. Before you pressed record I asked you how you were and you said I’m in paradise, and it’s all in there. I’m in content and I’ve got to contend. How do you get to paradise. Pain medication is fucking evil. I think drugs are the equivalent of a Ouija board and you don’t know what you’re opening up and I think when people talk about demons and sorting out their demons. I think there actual demons. I tell you what though it’s a fucking field day for the conspiracists with everything that’s going on. What I did straight away in this lockdown was rid myself of the mainstream media news because I understood it was inflaming my panic and paranoia and fear.

C – Why all the symbolism?

Transcript snippet from podcast

Chris and Shaun

C – Shaun how are you?

S – Yeah good brother, how are you?

C – You on the gin already?

S – Russian vodka!

C – I had a beer the other day, and it fricking messed me up for about three days.

S – Really, is your system that pure now after decades of drug addled insanity?

C – Well, it is. You know when I have a beer, I’m never gonna just have one beer right, but nonetheless it just makes me wonder how did I function for twenty seven years drinking every day. It is horrible.

S – Yeah, they say you’ve got a twenty to thirty year run on your liver and then it goes.

C – Hahaha thanks! I’m at the end of my allowance if that’s the case!

S – So congratulations on your Robbie Williams interview, I watched it and it was brilliant. I urge people to go over to your channel and watch it. If anyone is watching this on my channel there is link in the description box below this video to Chris’s YouTube channel. He’s been on my podcast twice, brilliant story and I’ll also leave the links for that and also to subscribe to his channel.

C – Thanks Shaun. That was a bit how can you say unexpected really. People keep asking me how I landed Robbie Williams and I said I didn’t, he kindly very left me a lovely message one morning, just to basically say thanks for what you do Chris…

Prev 1 of 1 Next

Join former professional footballer Andy Ramage and I as we discuss the benefits of going alcohol free for either 30, 90 or 365 days with the One Year No Beer project.

Transcript snippet from podcast

Chris and Andy

C – Andy, how are you my friend?

A – It’s hot and I’m tip top.

C – It’s funny, when you came onto the Zoom meeting before we went live and I heard you say “Hi There, how you doing”, as it’s weird as I hear you say that most mornings from your inspirational morning talks. I set my Facebook t0 have the one year no beer post showing first, so you don’t get that dose of negativity as you first wake up!  For our friends at home, it’s Andy running through the forest talking about the benefits of not drinking alcohol in your life. That doesn’t mean give it up forever but for at least a particular period in life. It’s not about being a monk or something to that extreme. So from myself mate, thank you so much for those.

A – It’s my favourite part of the day Chris, just being out there in the wild and connecting with so many different people, and truth being told I didn’t actually think that would be a big part of what I would be doing …

#131 Undercover Cop Exposes UK Gang Truth | Neil Woods | Bought The T-Shirt

Prev 1 of 1 Next
Prev 1 of 1 Next

One of the UK’s most notorious undercover cops exposes the truth about UK gang culture and the battle he faced in the aftermath.

Transcript snippet from podcast

Chris and Neil

C – Hi everyone, glad you could join us for this episode with Neil Woods, as he has a fantastic story as one of the most successful undercover policeman this country has had. I’m privileged to know two former undercover police detectives, one of which has had to overcome some huge issues with trauma. I also had Peter Blexley on the show who speaks very, very highly of Neil being one of the countries leading detectives. So thank you on behalf of the podcast Neil, shall we go back to when you first joined to police force, which I’ve just been reading about.

N – Yeah if you’d like. I joined the police in 1989. The reason I did that, seeing as I didn’t have a boyhood ambition to join the police force. I wasn’t one of these people that always wanted to do it. I went to university by mistake, why I ever thought I was going to enjoy a business studies course, I’ve no idea! So I dropped out of that and considered what to do next, one of which was to backpack around Europe because a few friends had done that and it sounded adventurous. Then I saw an advert for the police in the newspaper and unable to make my mind up I flipped a coin. So I was literally flippant about my career choice. Then when I got into the police force I did feel that sense of duty, that I had to do a good job, but I was crap at it! I was no good at all, I almost lost my job several times in the first couple of years …

#122 International Drug Smuggler | David McMillan | Escaping A Thai Death Sentence | Bought The T-Shirt

David McMillan is a British-Australian drug smuggler who is best known for being the only Westerner on record as having successfully escaped Bangkok’s Klong Prem prison.

Transcript snippet from podcast

Chris and David

‘Hello Friends

C … that reminds of me when you’re trying to buy drugs and someone promises you the world. You just kinda know that something isn’t right and then bang, your money has gone, and they don’t come back.

D – There was a great drought in London of just about everything back in 2010 and people were cheating all the time. If you find yourself on the 10th floor of a council block and there’s three or four people on the landing, you’re in for a rough time. I don’t know, maybe we learn a forgiveness for that, up to a point. Depending on how much damage has been done.
