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…

#56 Prison Officer ‘Strangeways’ 11 Years | Neil ‘Sammy’ Samworth | HMP Manchester | Podcast

Prev 1 of 1 Next
Prev 1 of 1 Next

Neil ‘Sammy’ Samworth spent 11 years as a prison officer in one of Britain’s toughest jails.

Transcript snippet from podcast

Chris and Sammy

C – Sammy, how are you brother?

S – I’m good Chris, how are you?

C – Yeah, I’m alright mate thank you, better every day to be honest.

S – Good. That’s what we like to hear.

C – It’s an absolute honour to finally get to meet, albeit through the pleasures of Zoom. I think Zoom is the bane of everybody’s life at the moment.

S – This is my second one, I don’t really know it from the point of view of using it, there we go that’s better.

C – I was trying to think, I had the absolute pleasure of driving to a podcast with Shaun Attwood or it might have been James English, and I was listening to your podcast. I’ve listened to both your podcasts with these guys on the way up in the car, and I was immediately struck Sammy not just with your massive experience as a prison officer but also the compassion that you showed throughout the interview to the people you were in charge of. It was rewarding to hear that there’s people like you out there. I think those of us that grew up with Porridge, you think of Strangeways prison and you think of was it Fulton McKay.

S –  Yeah definitely

C – You know that rigid ex military type, and as I said it’s an honour to finally get to meet you…

#68 Nick Dunn | SFSG | 1 Para | Surviving HELL | The Chennai Six | Podcast

Prev 1 of 1 Next
Prev 1 of 1 Next

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 snippet from 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…

C- Oh well you know that’s a two way thing James. For people watching at home, James very kindly gave me a start on his podcast, and through that Shaun Attwood. That’s a good few months ago now. Oh, and what do they say, don’t work with children and animals, and they need to add IPhones too that too. James you are just a lovely genuine man, you’ve clearly got self respect and a huge amount of respect for your guests and it’s people like you that are pushing my world and the world for my little boy in the right direction and that really needs to be acknowledged…

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…

Rupert Utley is a former senior inspector with the Royal Hong Kong Police. He received a degree in criminology and police studies from the University of Portsmouth, a diploma in criminal justice from the University of Hong Kong, and studied Mandarin at Tsinghua University in Beijing. He is a recipient of the “Baton of Honour” award on completion of his training at the Royal Hong Kong Police Training School.

Transcript snippet from podcast

Chris and Rupert

C  – Rupert how are you?

R – I’m very well thanks Chris, how are you doing?

C – Yes, I’m very well and I’ve been really looking forward to our conversation. Firstly I’d like to thank you for joining my One Life Smash It community group on Facebook.

R – Yes, I’ve been enjoying it. You know normally I’d be jetting around the world for work, one of my motorcycling adventures or just yomping, but because of Covid you know I’ve been stuck here. I’m here in Hong Kong. I hadn’t watched any news for a long time, so I started to watch, but that didn’t last long. Probably for the same reason you stopped watching mainstream media. So I dipped into YouTube and found the podcast world which has been enlightening. I discovered yourself and I’ve been following some of your courses which are right up my street, like nutrition, endurance and looking after ourselves and keeping positive.

S – I’m good, very good Chris yes.

C – Thank you so much for joining me on the Bought The Tee Shirt podcast mate, and my gosh, your life reads like the pages out of Goodfellas or something.

S – Well the one thing you can’t call it is boring! I believe we’ve all got a story in us, we’ve all lived a life, and it’s about overcoming things and improving as human beings.

C – Yes, exactly, we’re all starting to get there aren’t we… Well some of us are! Can we talk about your childhood, my old stomping ground. It was Belfast wasn’t it?

S – Belfast yep.

C – Yeah I recognised some of the places out of your book. Now you didn’t grow up with a religion there? You moved over as a child?
