What's the difference between Niagara Falls, Ontario, Niagara Falls, NY, and Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario? I have no idea. And if you don't know them either, you've come to the right place for answers. My guest this week Denise answers those burning questions and discusses her life and times between leaving her home in Niagara to moving to the big scary city of Toronto then finding her way up to the sweet and mild mannered city of Ottawa. She also talks about visiting one of baseball's most legendary places, Wrigley Field. No pictures?? Enjoy Denise's story!
It's Fred, Fred, Fred in this Fred-o-rama special! My good buddy Fred has infiltrated the podcast this week; he's all over the intro, the guest spot, and the outro. If you liked his first episode, which was also the Nobodies Are Somebodies podcast's premiere episode, you are going to love this. And if you did not like it, you will absolutely not like this one either.
Fred talks more in depth about starting his own business and the legacy that doing so will provide for him. We also discuss a little music that we both love and he gives an award winning impression of yours truly, Chad Vice. Now how about that?
This is most definitely a Fredaganza special, as he was even present with me in the Nobodies Are Somebodies podcast studio to assist with editing the episode and recording some extra content. Fred, we can't get enough of you, but after this episode, let's see other people, shall we? Kidding! Happy Easter!!

Eric V. drops by the Nobodies Are Somebodies studio to check in and help me celebrate my 10th 'anniversary' of the podcast, among other things and we discuss his "love" of opening introductions to the podcast.
Then, the featured show: my first ever recording, first time ever de d'ever recording on a podcasting format, on this past Christmas day 2016, so I traveled to my mom's place about an hour or so out of town. she was having a tough day, emotionally, not being with family during the holidays, so this was just a quick chat that turned into to an insightful an interesting conversation. We kind of go back and forth on the stories and the details as she is trying to remember situations from back in the late '50s to the late '70s, and some interesting tidbits come up. This is a real and raw conversation, warts and all, and here it is
