It's experiment time! This week's podcast is me checking in with some of my former guests, via telephone! Some of the people that I reached out to were not available right this very Monday as I decided that this would be this week's episode this very morning. But I found 3 former guests with absolutely nothing better to do on a Monday morning and I tested out my calling recording software via Callture and had them call me to give me a quick update on how their lives have been going since I last talked to them. So bear with me as I try this call to call podcast approach. It's a work in process, just like the Nobodies Are Somebodies podcast.
The one common theme here? Each person is happily starting a new career or venture and their lives are nothing but positive these days it seems, and that is a good thing. Also, yes to answer your burning question, one of these check in calls was with my good buddy Fred!!
Life happens. Everything happens for a reason. What is the reason and what makes it happen.
Questions that I can't answer that happen everyday to everybody, and we all deal with it in different ways. My family went through a bit of a crisis and a medical emergency 2 weeks ago over the Labor Day weekend. I'm sharing some of that story with you all now. Some things I won't be able to share now, but take this episode as a small window into my world.
Also, because I like to lighten up situations, I have a rant about my local McDonald's that I needed to get off my chest. I mean, why not right??
Thank you for listening.
Talking to Nancy about her community involvements, from taking studies for a career in social work to working at the local food bank and discussing the services that they offer as well as talking about some of her experiences working with persons in need. We then move on to talk about stories that her parents have shared with her on how they immigrated (fled) to Canada from Vietnam by way of Indonesia during the mid-1980s and what life was like when travelling by boat to a foreign land to a safer place. She also shares how her parents met during this time. She uses the term 'boat people' and we talk about what that really means in this situation.
Nancy also shares stories that her grandmother has told her about life in Vietnam during the infamous war in the 1960s, and how the country was before and how it had changed forever after the war. And finally, we take on the hot topic of Nancy checking out this podcast for the first time to get a feel for it - which episode was her favorite???
I hope you enjoy this episode, Nancy spoke of a lot of topics that really interested me as a fan of history and historical time periods. I hope you get some great insight from her conversation as I did. And remember - Donate to your local food bank today - everything we do helps!
An F-Road is not what you might think it is on first hearing the term mentioned, but Jason will set you straight. Here he recounts his entire road trip around the country of Iceland, from the planning stages to some paperwork red tape to the coming home and all the adventures and site seeing he and his best buddy Jesse encounter while there. Jason also elaborates on the cultural and lifestyle differences they experience in a foreign land, as well as discussing a couple of potentially near death experiences that could have actually threatened his ability to return to Canada, well, alive. But there's also beauty to be found, such swimming in the Blue Lagoon spa and checking out those famous Northern Lights.
Jason has also posted pictures of his trip here in a public Facebook photo album for your viewing. Click the link below to see pictures of his trip.

So, spend an hour long conversation with the White Rabbit in Iceland and get a glimpse of where he will be 'hopping' to on his next major trip.
