Finally, it;'s here. It's recorded and it's ready for consumption; it's the final installment interview with my mom, the story-telling machine Mommy Vice, I finally get her one on one again for part 3 of 3, and this is an interesting and definitely dark conversation - it starts off discussing her current frame of mind and her expression of frustration over her current living arrangements and social status. From here, we pick up this discussion in the year 1990, where she meets my would-be step-father, Bruce, and she also talks about their troubled relationship spanning over a 13 year period.
We then talk about a very difficult year in 2004 as she deals with the deaths of not one, not two, but three family members in that same year. We also touch another difficult experience with her occurring in the summer of 1992. My Mommy also discusses meeting someone online on Zoosk and moving her whole life away to be with this man, her first and only time meeting a man on the internet. And finally, we end our eye opening talk on a positive note as I thank her for the interviews, the sharing, and for putting her life out there for the world to hear.
I think the world who listens will find something to enjoy and something unique to hear; Her motto: I believe! Thanks Mommy!!
This is the life of Chantal Venne, new to podcasting, both as a guest and actual listener, and she is talking about her life for the first time EVER anywhere to anyone with a microphone and a purpose, like me!
What happens after school, stays after school...but not really! Chantal talks about her career as an Outreach Coordinator who schedules fundraising events after school to raise money for different events, etc. We also talk about her love for Hawaii and the reason why she loves it so. She's a bit nervous being interviewed for the first time, but with Chad Vice's natural charm, we cut right through that quick.
So, here's a fellow Ottawa Valley child; here is Chantal "Don't Miss-pronounce My Last Name" Venne!
If you had to clean up or change the downtown core of your own city or town, what would you do? What would Eric. V do? Find out this answer and hear him promote the crap out of other things that are important to him and his wife Mary. It's Part of my talk with Mr. ECV of ECV Photography, and this one is not as intense for the faint of hearts out there (who I thank tremendously for listening to this podcast, by the way!). So without further adieu, we discuss homelessness and how he overcame it and what he'd like to see done to our fair city streets.
Oh yes, he also mentions his mother a couple more times. You've gotta listen to be taught!
Not for the faint of heart or ears, this solo interview with Eric V. (I mean, without his wife) has definitely got a good story in here somewhere, but reads like a random thought blog on the life and times of Eric Villeneuve, the man behind his ECV Photography business. Eric discusses more of his family drama and dynamics in this 1st of 2 part episode, it was so much that we couldn't contain it all in just one.
Originally it was just going to be a one-off episode for now, as he was late for a meeting with a client and had to leave the studio, so we couldn't talk for long; however, Eric reached out to me after the
recording of the show and asked to come back the following week and finish it off. How could I say no to that?
So we recorded this over a couple of weeks, and Eric's commentary and opinions are all his and as biting as ever. We talk about
his family and his time living on the streets and in a men's shelter, at the tender age of 15! His time living in a men's shelter has Eric discussing a shocking incident that occurred that nearly ended his life and has forever changed him. All this and more than you can stand, it is time for Part 1 with Mr. ECV
