Transcript snippet from podcast

Chris and Richie

C – Richie how are you brother?

R – Yeah I’m good mate how are you, thanks for having me on.

C – It’s my pleasure mate, anything about Everest, I’m all ears and I’ve got big enough ears as it is. So when you sent your email to me, it’s fascinating stuff. You spent a lot of time in Thailand I believe?

R -Yeah I was living there, between work in the Middle East and holidaying in the Himalayas.

C – I loved every single minute of being in Thailand, even when I got my nose broken by a Thai doorman.

R – Happens a lot that sort of thing.

C – It was still a great night! Little tip for you there folks, if you ever get mugged in a Thai bar by the bar staff, which they used to do. I’m not sure what it’s like in the modern tourism world there. Rather than trying to fight the bouncer, just go and speak to the tourist police, and they’ll get your money back for you.

R – And you don’t fight one, you fight ten as well.

C – Yes! …

#133 Paras To CIA Asset | Anthony Stephen Malone | Bought The T-Shirt Podcast

Transcript snippet from podcast

Chris and Anthony

C – Anth, how are you mate?

A – I’m good mate. I’m very good, how is it in your part of the world?#

C – Well, I’m never going to complain anyway! You get one life, if you want to spend it depressed, I’ve done all that shit mate, and I’m not doing it again.

A – You’re right, you’ve got one life and you live it to the full mate, that’s what it’s about.

C – So, first question, is it true that the Royal Marines are better than the Paras?

A – What I’m going to say about that one is the new advertising poster ‘Ready for Anything’ is outstanding! At the end of the day, if you can’t have a bit of banter with fellow servicemen, then there’s something wrong. The Marines respect the Paras and the Paras respect the Marines. So at the end of the day we all get the job done.

Transcript from podcast

Chris and Daz

C – Hi Daz, how are you brother?

D – Yep, not too bad buddy thank you.

C – So, first off we should say a big thank you to Claire Vosper for putting us in touch. Hello Claire! For those watching that’s Claire from V-Force who we’re going to be doing some driving with later in the year. Mate, from what I see you’ve been hitting it quite hard.

D – Hahaha, you could say that, it’s been pretty full on, in a pandemic. Basically, doing as much and trying to raise as much money as possible under these difficult circumstances.

C – I had a look at your social media and gosh you’ve been putting yourself through the pain barrier, so go back to beginning, how did all this start?

#41 SAS Who Dares Wins | Colin Maclachlan | Special Forces | Celebrity | Bought The T-Shirt Podcast

I chat to special forces legend and star of Chanel 4’s SAS Who Dares Wins Colin Maclachlan about life in the elite British army regiment and celebrity.

Transcript snippet from podcast

Chris and Colin

Chris – ‘Hello Friends, and welcome to another episode of the Bought The Tee Shirt podcast, as always I’m over the moon today because I’ve got yet another fascinating guest, a genuinely nice man. This gentleman supported me when I did my 999 mile run from John O Groats to Lands End, it really meant a lot to me and I’m proud to say hello to Colin MacLachlan.

Colin – It’s great to meet you virtually again, over zoom.

Chris – Yeah, and I should say I’m not one that’s big on introductions, but for those that don’t know Colin served how many years in the SAS?

Colin – So I served 18 years in the military. The first half with the Royal Scots, and the second half with the SAS …’

My new thriller series ‘The Hans Larsson Novels’ – by Chris Thrall

Dear Friends

Just a quick intro to my A Hans Larsson Novel book series – the video explains it all and is worth watching for avid readers of books and up-and-coming authors. It’s day 2 of the series launch with The Drift and The Trade and we are already hitting the bestseller categories on Amazon and the five-star reviews are pouring in. Very rewarding after 3 years hard work.

Here’s the blurb for The Drift

“Following the death of his wife and son, Hans Larsson buys a yacht named Future, intending to sail across the Atlantic with his young daughter Jessica. En route they meet Penny, a seasoned English skipper, who joins them as crew, and the larger-than-life Marcel, a Dutch art dealer hiding a secret, along with a stash of drugs on his vintage boat. Battling storms, sharks and pirates, Hans and Jessica experience the adventure of a lifetime, until fate intervenes to leave them fighting for survival on an ocean less perilous than the mind . . .”

“Among the best of the newcomers” The Star

“From the shores of Maine to a cannabis farm in Morocco and a production line in Japan, The Drift will have you frantically turning pages and wondering how the hell it will end.” Bestselling author, Mark Time

The Trade is the second book in the series and I’m very happy with the clever follow-up!
