#70 Stolen ‘Valor’ Exposed | Ben’s Story | The Truth Behind Walter Mitty

Prev 1 of 1 Next
Prev 1 of 1 Next

My most heroic guest to date helps me explore the truth behind veteran impersonation aka Water Mitty or Stolen Valor (valour – UK spelling)

Transcript snippet from podcast

Chris and Ben

C – Ben, how are you brother?

B – I’m doing good how are you?

C – Running out of clever replies, that probably aren’t really that clever.

B – When someone asks me this at work or whatever my usual reply when someone asks me how are you? I answer loving life. No matter what type of day it is, it’s positive affirmation. Sometimes good is just as sufficient, but I think if you say that enough times it gets contagious and other people start to say it whether they mean it or not.

C – I don’t mean to be rude to my guests but they’ve got to sort out the way they fricking speak man. All this “I’m good”. This is England, we’re British and we’re very proud about that. We’re not nationalistic but we’re proud not to have to copy other countries. People can speak how they want, of course they can but I do think though. I think people who are easily swayed with their language just start saying what other people say. You know like this ‘passed’ thing instead of died. They use ‘passed’. I personally think there’s a lot to dissect there…

#94 Digital Danger | Frank King | The Mental Health Comedian | TedX Speaker | Podcast

Prev 1 of 1 Next
Prev 1 of 1 Next

The legendary Frank King was a writer for The Tonight Show for 20 Years. He’s fought a lifetime battle with depression, and thoughts of ending it, turning that long dark journey of the soul into 5 TEDx Talks, and sharing his insights on mental health prevention and post-vention with corporation, association, and college audiences. He uses the life lessons from all of the above, as well as lessons learned crisscrossing the country in the late ‘80s and early ‘90s, doing 2,629 nights in a row on the comedy club circuit, to show how funeral directors, their staffs, and vendor partners, how they can collaborate successfully as they strive for excellence in funeral service. He’s had two aortic valve replacements, a double bypass, a massive heart attack, and three stents, and lived to joke about it all, so he is truly funny at heart. You’ll laugh, learn, and leave loving life.

Transcript snippet from podcast

Chris and Frank

C – Frank how are you Sir?

F – Oh you know, I’m living the nightmare baby

C – Surviving the apocalypse that we never thought would come, and now it’s upon us yes.

F – I was talking to somebody yesterday and I said ‘Do you remember the last recession?’ and then I thought man, I didn’t think I’d ever utter that phrase, the last recession, because that means we have another one to deal with.

C – So Frank we met on linked in, I was obviously impressed and attracted to your profile, sounds like a dating site doesn’t it!

F – Hahahah yeah that’s right, turn ons, turn offs…

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 …

Transcript snippet from Podcast

Chris and AJ

C – AJ how are you brother?

AJ – I’m very well Chris, thanks for having me on bro.

C – Ahhh mate it’s my pleasure, you’ve been very kind in having me on twice now, and my gosh, I’m hoping to become a better man after the end of this chat with your super skills!

AJ – It’s a pleasure having you on mate, the feedback I’ve had so far has been really, really good. I had a few people message me who’d never heard about you before, and it was great so I hope you got a few more followers out of it.

C – Mate, it’s all a bit weird to be honest, sorry I’m shining the spotlight back onto me there, which is something we can touch on later, it’s amazing the amount of peoples lives you can reach through this media. Just being myself and that’s all I ever try to be. When you get stuff put back on you like that, let’s just say it’s weird. I still don’t know what to make of it all really.

‘Hello Friends,

C – Dennis, how are you mate?

D – Very good Chris, yourself?

C- Yes, it’s amazing, no delightful to be talking to you in Australia, although I should have read your linked in profile better as I didn’t realise you’re an Irishman down there.

D – Yeah, I thought the name would have given it away, the O’Connor part of it.

C – So, I know the English sent our ‘convicts’ down to Australia, was it the same for Ireland, or is my history really that bad?
