Ep. 39 ~ Amanda Louise Author Interview ~ Be the Black Sheep

Caught up with author, Amanda Louise, who has been working on her inspirational debut book ‘Be the Black Sheep’!! Had a great time reminiscing about our university days in Hervey Bay, and didn’t realise just how much that time shaped our lives!! We have both retained so many of the lessons learned when we were studying mass media & public relations over 13 years ago(!).

Spoke about what lead Amanda to the exploration and promotion of the ‘Black Sheep’ lifestyle, and why she decided to write the book. We then had a chat about a few of her inspirations, including Walt Disney, Tony Robbins, and Tim Ferriss (author of ‘The Four Hour Work Week).

Amanda has done all the research and ground work for her readers, including attending motivational US style motivational conventions run by Tony Robbins, and the Aussie women’s creative conference, 9 to Thrive. We discussed our shared passion for helping people, and being a part of positive communities!!

Amanda has been working on her social media presence, providing videos, live streams, interviews, and posts designed to help people overcome fear, visualise success, and most of all, that it is ok to be different. Make sure to check out ‘Be the Black Sheep’ today!!

Ep. 37 ~ Mission Impossible: Fallout Post-Cinema Review (In-Car Test)

**PODCAST CONTAINS SPOILERS** Testing out the old audio recorder in the car on the way home from the movies after watching the new Mission Impossible: Fallout!! Calling this test a fail as the audio was really off, so next time we will just have to contain ourselves until we get home (or take some notes or something!). The indicators as we were waiting to turn were just wayyyyy too annoying. And it might be good to have a few minutes to gather our thought for clarity!!

We both really enjoyed the movie, found it had a fast moving and often unpredictable plot, but was perhaps just a little long. The characters were fun, and it was interesting to see Henry Cavill try to break his Superman mold (and why exactly he NEEDED that moustache!).

Ep. 12 ~ Zombie Survival Chats ~ ACAF 2018

As we sat in the drawing room at the Australian Comic Arts Festival, the topic soon turned to zombies and survival (AKA why the kids in The Walking Dead are doing it all wrong). Politics were discussed, as were tanks, our own strategies, and a few of the different comic book/tv takes on the issue. Christian Read will probably be ok in his mountain lair, Paul and I are joining the boys from his Thai kickboxing gym who catch fish in the Brisbane River from bows and arrows they make themselves, and joining us at the end there was Trevor Clark… not sure where you are from sir, but god speed!
*The name of the BBC zombie show we couldn’t remember was ‘In The Flesh’ 😉 (more…)
