Transcript from ‘Special Forces Support Group MMA World Champion’ podcast

Chris and Martin

C – Stapes how are you brother?

M – I’m alright mate, thanks for having me on.

C – My pleasure, it’s been brilliant. I’m catching up with all these brothers I’ve never met and you can’t argue with that can you?

M – Yeah I’ve just seen you’ve done a podcast with Josh Pelland. I haven’t had a chance to watch it yet, but I’m going to get into that later.

C – He’s a lovely man you know.

M – Certainly is yeah.

C – He kind of epitomizes that kind of elite special forces thing, because you know a lot of them are just really nice guys that just want to be professional soldiers, you know what I mean.

M – Josh’s story is pretty compelling isn’t it. You know coming from abroad, from Canada, all the stuff he did and what he’s gone through recently, I’m looking forward to catching up on that episode.

C – I found it really quite upsetting, because he’s so nice and the way he talks about his accident, there’s not even the slightest bit of feeling sorry for himself…

Surviving HELL The Chennai Six

Arrested and imprisoned in India as one of the ‘Chennai Six’, Nick wasn’t just innocent of any crime, there was no crime. Stationed on an anti-piracy ship to protect vessels against Somali pirates, the six were arrested and falsely charged with intruding in Indian waters and the possession of illegal weapons. Nick lost four years of his life trapped in a legal nightmare in India, thousands of miles from home and his family, spending the bulk of his time in appalling conditions at Chennai prison with extremely limited contact to the outside world. Despite this, Nick refused to buckle and now he tells his full story of endurance and survival for the very first time.

Transcript from ‘Surviving HELL The Chennai Six’ podcast

Chris and Nick

C – Nick how are you brother?

N – I’m good thank you very much.

C – You’ve been through a lot.

N – Yes, you could say that.

C – On the bright side you’ve got a book coming out.

N – I do yes and I’m trying to promote it at best as I can. Hopefully during lockdown people can potentially read and take something worth of value from the book, especially when I’m talking about isolation. People may say you were in a prison and I’m at home. For people with mental health problems they feel they are a prison in their own home. I want to shed light on what my isolation was like and the stuff I had available, people can then think well I’m not in a prison and look at the stuff they have at their disposal.

Army Commando Joins Special Boat Service

Dean joined the Britain’s elite Special Boat Service (SBS) and took part of some of the most daring and dangerous operations in recent times. But then, following a horrific parachuting accident, Dean’s dream career was cut short, and he was put to its toughest test.

Transcript from ‘Army Commando Joins Special Boat Service’ podcast

Chris and Dean

C – Dean how are you brother?

D – I’m alright yourself?

C – Yes, I can’t complain. I’ve been in the garden for the last half hour, and my God I’m not one of these people who says that it’s too hot because it can never be too hot. Bloody hell it’s hot.

D – I’m in Aberdeen and it’s over twenty five degrees here, people are spontaneously combusting in Scotland.

C – Are they still blue?

D – Yeah, but they’ve gone a little bit white now.

C – Massive thanks for joining us mate, especially at such short notice. It’s all kicking off for you now then with your book released.

D – Yeah they hardback was released in October, and yesterday the paperback was released and we’re supposed to be out and about promoting it, but because of the current situation, I haven’t been able to do that and attend literacy festivals and other events that we had scheduled. So it’s all had to be via social media.

C – Well I don’t think that’s a bad thing to be honest.

D – Right, I think there’s been a lot of positives on this period. I don’t believe in the phrase we’re all in the same boat, because we’ve all got different boats and people in all sorts of different situations…

Chris and Steve

C – Steve how are you brother?

S – I’m good thank you how are you?

C – I’m very well mate, thank you for asking. You’re in Iraq as we speak?

S – Yeah, currently on lockdown in Baghdad, Iraq yeah.

C – What position are you holding in there?

S – I’m basically working for a private security company. Part of the regional management team. So we basically oversee all the projects in our region and provide support for those projects.

C – If we go back to the beginning, it was 1 Para you were in?

S – Yeah, so I left school in the year 2000, always wanted to join the military, I had three other family members in the parachute regiment at the time, so my allegiance was to the parachute regiment. I was too young to join as an adult entry, so my only option was to go to the army foundation college in Harrogate…

‘Hello Friends,

C – Hello Friends, and welcome to another edition of the Bought The T Shirt podcast. Today I’ve got the massive pleasure of talking to an incredible man, someone with a lot of military experience, someone with a lot of life experience and I’m going to go out on a limb and say he’s overcome some big challenges and developed that sort of mindset we love to hear about.

D – Thanks for having us on mate, I appreciate it.

C – It’s a pleasure, I have to say a big thank you to Charlie, one of your fans. Charlie very kindly messaged me and asked me if I would have you on the show. Personal recommendations always count for a lot, they certainly do in the military. ‘
