Real People With Real Stories

Thank you for listening to my podcast

May 13, 2019

Reba McEntire, WWE's Good 'Ol Jim Ross, The Gap Band, and Freddy Fri share one major thing in common: they all call the state of Oklahoma home. 

Meet Freddy Fri of Freddy Fri Motivation, who specializes in motivational video voice overs and helping people find the best in themselves and become their very best in their daily lives. But before all that, Freddy was a young kid growing up in Tulsa in a rough neighborhood and rougher times but hip hop music was his passion and his focus, and when he found within himself the courage to perform and share the music with the world, Playya 1000 was born. From there to single fatherhood of 4 beautiful kids to re-igniting his rap career to the motivational life he has now, we hear about it all. This Monday is a Winsday. Find out how and listen now, and be sure to check out more about Mr. Fri in the links below:

Paul Star was born in Chisasibi, Quebec, Canada as Paul Napash, and he was a Music Industry Arts student at Ottawa's Algonquin College. Paul is a musician, singer, artist, songwriter, producer and certified engineer and is in the process of launching his new record label, PauStar Entertainment

Music has been in his family since he was born, having a father and uncle both as musicians, and playing for himself and for others has always been his passion. Proud of his native Cree heritage (he once had a band called 'Kree' in his early years), Paul talks about the changes he's seen in his community since he was a child and how Aboriginal communities have grown thanks to young entrepreneurs. PaulStar Entertainment has already begun building their roster of artists - who will be the next big thing?

This is Dave Logan Part 2, and it is here where we get to the end of his career at the Ottawa Hospital, how that all went down and why. As well as talking about his first of many diagnosis by medical professionals. Dave tells all in this intense interview, detailing his attempted suicide and a manic episode that led him back to a near violent confrontation at his former place of work. Dave holds nothing back and gives lots of detail and insight, and we also talk about the one constant in his life: becoming a parent and just how much his daughter has seen him through the tough years to get him to today. But how does Dave feel about today? Listen up!

Dave Logan was a part of the 100th Live! episode mental health roundtable and we touched briefly on his story and some of his experiences during that time. Since then, Dave had expressed how much he enjoyed that opportunity and wanted to share his story in a one-on-one. Dave has been through a lot, many ups and downs and he holds nothing back in these interviews. 

Here is Part I where Dave discusses growing up in Frederick, NB, moving to Ottawa ON and those challenges with leaving friends and experiences behind and coming to a new culture, as well as entering a successful yet destructive career as a security member in the local hospital. This episode focuses on Dave'e early years and his career at the Ottawa Hospital, plus how his mental health was changing.

My guest is Logan Brown, a fellow podcaster, the host of his own Brown Sound Podcast, a show where he talks about whatever he feels like at that given moment. We discuss the right awesomeness of the music scene that is Kingston, Ontario Canada (where he originally grew up) as well as the ups and downs of creating and maintaining a podcast, to just plain old music and life talk! It's two dudes talking and you just happen to be listening. We talk pretty fast and pretty loose so try and hold on for the ride. LISTEN UP!

I'm speaking with Christina Ranieri and Vincent Bishop from Ability First Ottawa, a charity group in Ottawa Ontario Canada working to help those living with disabilities with getting services, lodging and helping caretakers when they are no longer able to care for their loved ones needs.

Christina was diagnosed with several learning disabilities and Vincent received an Asperger's diagnosis (now ASD) by finding paperwork himself on his diagnosis at the age of 18. Both Vincent and Christina are very open, honest, candid and real with their stories about who they are, who they are not, and what their accomplishments have been thus far. They are also discussing various stereotypes and boundaries that others have placed on them and how they educate people on living with different abilities.

A special shout-out to Crystaljoy Parman who was not able to appear with us on this episode but will be joining me on the show in the near future.

Born in Louisiana and now living in Mississippi, 18 year old Trey Olds speaks from what seems like years and years of experience despite his youthful age and loves the entertainment business since he was a little one and continues to explore new territory and be the creative person he is.

Trey has high functioning autism, and he let's people know that he has autism but it does not define him. He advocates for people to be aware and they need to know more about it. There is no face of autism; everyone is different and he talks about a few instances where he's come in contact with people who have a different view of autism based on their own beliefs and [lack of] understanding

Trey discusses his work in voice acting, stage acting and his passion for radio broadcasting, interviewing celebrity guests and why he loves this business so much. Trey is inspiring to me, and I'm happy he reached out to me, to let me share some of his story with you right here

Life can be hard. The path we end up on, whether it’s where we want to be or not, isn’t easy. Sometimes things turn dark. Sometimes thing turn serious. And sometimes it’s hard to get out of those situations. This week, Jon shares his dark times with us and tells us how he was able to turn things around. This is as real as things can get.

Welcome to Season 3 of the Nobodies Are Somebodies Podcast, and it's going to be a season of change! A little update here and there and some new opportunities and of course, new guests! Episode 99 right here right now is no exception, as I feature the brand new Arts & Entertainment, based in Ottawa with events coming in multiple cities in the U.S. and Canada, the company is known as STERCES!

STERCES is Secrets spelled backwards, and I'm chatting with Geoff, Keith and Mr. Happy from the company who are telling me and you, only what we need to know about their promotions and events. How it formed, how the guys met, what their plans are for the future. The rest as they say, is a STERCES!

Christelle is a new Canadian, arriving here from South Africa in 2017. Since that time, she uses words like 'amazing' and 'shocked' a lot because they refer to how she and her young family feels not only with the culture differences, but the overall warmth and generosity of the people here. Christelle will tell us all in very clear terms why life here for her and her family is safer than the life she's known for the last 10 years, and I'm very proud to present her story for the first time

Amanda Prairie-Lee is the winner of the Nobodies Are Somebodies podcast Spotify Premium contest, and she talks about how excited she was to win, thanks to Google Automated Number Generator! But that cold hard fact can't spoil her excitement as we dig deeper into who Amanda is and where she comes from, which happens to be Thunder Bay, Ontario. She talks about working in the factories in her younger years, moving to Maryland for love and marriage, having a now teenage son who is dealing with many challenges and the happy life they have for themselves. We also cannot help but chat about her very special car that she drives and why it means so much to her. This is Amanda, WINNER!!

Alissa Kostyk is my guest this week, and she has had quite the professional career that started in Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada, and has taken her to Indiana and now Florida, her current state of residence. I ask her about how she got from point A to point Z and all in between, and we also find out what the slogan 'Your Ride to Pride' means. Cousin of my unpaid agent Denise, I plan to meet her in person at some point to hear all about the woman she is, but for now, it's all professional! Recorded over Skype, it's a return to the longer style interviews that have been absent as of late. My thanks to Alissa for her openness and to Denise for making it happen
