This week's episode is out of the normal...in fact it's Paranormal! See what I did there? My guest is John Moore and we are chatting about how he is a real life ghost hunter, and this old city of Ottawa definitely has more than a few things to hide in the shadows...John tells us about how he is helping folks find peace of mind and explaining the sometimes un-explainable, as well as his background and what piqued his interest in his teens years out on the East Coast that led him to this challenging yet rewarding side job. Where does it go from here? I'll let John explain on this week's episode of the Nobodies Are Somebodies Podcast!

This is Part 2 of my chat with Mr. Marty Gold. Marty is a professional wrestler, play-by-play broadcaster, radio personality, writer, journalist, and so much more that it's no surprise that just one episode alone will not hold all of this man's stunning career. In Part Two, we discuss his professional wrestling career throughout Canada and his work and experience gained in the world of play-by-play wrestling announcing, including his brushes with some of the Canadian wrestling royalty, considering that he is based in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada! It's time for more gold...

This 2-part set of episodes is going to be pure audio gold, with my guest for the next 2 weeks being Mr. Marty Gold. Marty is a professional wrestler, play-by-play broadcaster, radio personality, writer, journalist, and so much more that it's no surprise that just one episode alone will not hold all of this man's stunning career. In Part One, we discuss the formation and his role as the editor in chief of his online Canadian Jewish newspaper 'The J' and how it's grown to be a major source of news and information for Canada's Jewish Communities. We also get to dive in a little bit about his time spent in Canadian sports/talk radio and some behind the scenes understanding of radio and broadcasting in general. Stay tuned for all this and more to come on next week's Part Two!

Meet Leo the Dog: Hi! I'm Leo! I'm 5 years old as of September 2020 and I'm a Bernese Mountain dog. My owner, Maryse, who is also the Unpaid Promoter of the Nobodies Are Somebodies podcast, took me to meet Genevieve from Beyond My Leash. I was feeling anxious and nervous all the time, especially in social situations, and she could see it in my eyes and my body. So, she brought me to see Genevieve and now I feel good and proud, and I make her proud - now I'm anxious to show off to you, the listeners, what I have learned in "school" this year! Thanks for listening - ruff ruff!!

Along with Unpaid Promoter Maryse, we visited a couple of folks in La municipalité de la Nation Municipality in Plantagenet Ontario Canada and we met with Rachel Blaquiere and Jacques Groulx who have this hauntingly striking cavalcade of characters all displayed on thier property. Because you can't Trick Or Treat in 2020, have a visit to this spot in the Nation Region (20 minutes east of Rockland Ontario) and if you can't, then have a listen to our chat with Jacques and Rachelle right here and now, and be sure to have a look at some video shot by Maryse of me wandering around the property getting freaked out by all the wonders I see!

This week on the podcast, I am continuing to explore the meaning and the effort behind the term "Influencer" and the folks that identify themselves online as being such. This is the second of 2 back to back chats with people who use Internet Marketing and Brand Influencing as their revenue source and how they structure their daily lives. This week, it's all about Glenda Decasa, from Edmonton Alberta Canada and she is discussing how she turned her passion for blogging and marketing into a career, how she sustains it, to teaching others and how working with local brands and businesses is important to her and being a part of her community. This is Glenda's story.
