Transcript snippet from podcast

Chris and Jack

C – Jack, how are you brother?

J – Morning Chris, how you doing?

C – I’m doing phenomenal mate. I was thinking I need to come up with a new word because phenomenal isn’t good enough now! I was thinking phenmeganomical is that a word?

J – Go for it, just make it up. Brand it, that can be yours.

C – Don’t they say if a word appears more than three times in the media it goes into the English dictionary.

J – Something like that yeah!

C – I’m just going to say some keywords here because apparently YouTube they pick up on the first things you talk about. So we’re going to say Royal Marines, Afghanistan, bodyguard and life coach. It doesn’t really bother me but I thought I’d give it a go and see if we got a higher rating on YouTube. So how’s life with you mate?

J – Life’s good mate, life’s good. Quite interestingly enough we’re in the Covid 19 lockdown terms in the current climate. I find myself to be enjoying it to be perfectly honest. I usually live a very busy, here, there and everywhere kind of life, which I thoroughly enjoy, don’t get me wrong. I choose it, I love it. I usually get bored being in the same place for too long…

Chris and Steve

C – Steve, how are you brother?

S – Hello mate, I’m all good, how are you?

C – I’m fantastic mate,  I’m absolutely delighted to be talking to you. It’s very kind you’ve come on pretty short notice. I came across your profile on Facebook or was it Instagram.

S – Yeah we’ve been connected on Facebook for quite a bit, I’ve been seeing your stuff for quite some time as well.

C – Yeah bad luck! It’s really interesting I’ve just been chatting to a fascinating guy called Ryan the holistic health coach. He’s ex marine and he’s down there in Australia. We were just saying about the Instagram thing, the whole approach to it is really interesting. He’s taking the approach I’m starting to take, which is just to be honest on Instagram. It seems to really resonate with young people now.

S –  Yeah, I think that’s the best way to be on social media, I just try to be as honest as possible, but it’s a big market now especially with businesses and companies collaborating with people…

Rob and I continue our fascinating chat about the Hollywood elite. Part 1 is here: https://youtu.be/3IuivMFyyMk

Transcript snippet from podcast

Chris and Robbie

C – Rob, how are you brother?

R – I’m doing really good thanks mate. 10’000 subscribers.

C – 12’000 now, thank you to all these subscribers or friends as I prefer. I hate that commodity thing. You look like you’re in the library mate, what’s going on there.

R – Well last time you joined me, I was in the wardrobe, and tonight it’s much later in the evening in Los Angeles and I’d thought I’d go and get a comfortable chair, because last time I spoke to you the chair wasn’t that comfortable. And if we’re going to have a heart to heart or a tete a tete, then I need to be in daddy’s chair and I’m in daddy’s chair right now. That’s where I am.

C – Have you got a big house over there mate? How does that work?

R -It works like this. You go on tour, you make some money, you think about where you’re going to put that money. Then you get scared of losing that money, so you think, what’s the best thing to do with it. Then you think I’ll put it into bricks and mortar because if everything crashes and everything goes away at least you’ll be left with bricks and mortar and a viable actual thing! So I put my money into a house…

Chris and Jay

C – Jay how are you Sir?

J – I’m doing great man thanks for having me.

C – The pleasure’s all mine mate, I saw you talking to Shaun, that’s Shaun Attwood for our friends at home. You’ve had a few chats with Shaun and I was fascinated to see you talking about Hollywood, especially esoteric Hollywood. It’s a subject that I’ve been fascinated in, especially since those event a that took place in New York twenty years ago. Of course I’ve been recently chatting to Robbie Williams who is a quote, unquote Megastar. We were sort of chewing a few things over with respect to what the hell is going on in Hollywood. I would say I ended up more confused than I began, but the thing is I’m old enough and ugly enough to kind of pretty much know what’s going on in Hollywood, or maybe I’m starting to join the dots better than I was before…

C – Vinay, how are you Sir?

V – I’m not too bad at all

C – That was short and sweet!

V – Ahh you know, it’s Saturday afternoon, it’s grey and cold outside and we’re heading into winter, so I’m having one of those low energy type days, you know here we are.

C – Nice, are you in your penthouse.

V – I am in my penthouse, my penthouse which is in an area rapidly turning into a ghetto.

C – Things are that bad are they?

V – Well we’ve just discovered, maybe a year ago that all these buildings have the same cladding as Grenfell had. I only rent here, but all the landlords are now stuck with properties they can’t sell. No one is going to give a mortgage on a building that could catch fire so easy…
