Real People With Real Stories

Thank you for listening to my podcast

Apr 15, 2019

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.

Jon tells us all in his story and holds nothing back. Thank you for sharing with us and talking through the past that brings you to the bright future ahead!

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

Me (Chad Vice), Good Buddy Fred, The Chevrolet Bruise, and an empty parking lot where a Sears used to be. That's all you need to have a good podcast episode. At least I hope so, because that's all we've got for this episode, so tell me it works!

My sometimes co-host Fred C. sits with me in my beloved Chevrolet Bruise and we chat about what he has been up to, his upcoming Christmas 2018 plans, what a typical day for him is like, and of course, our upcoming show seeing SLAYER at the CTC Arena in Ottawa, Canada, coming up in May 2019. It's a show about nothing, and sometimes those are the best kind!

Mr. Derrick was introduced to me as someone who would be able to provide a splendidly talented voice over for my Nobodies Radio Station on Internet radio, and in his home studio outside of Ottawa, Canada, he recorded several radio IDs and bumpers for me. I thought Derrick had quite the unique voice and a certain mystique about him, so I asked him to sit down with me for a one on one chat to find out more about him. I will say - he is quite the animated character!

In this episode, myself and former many-times guest Shawna Robinson debate topics imagined by my unpaid agent Denise and we really go for it. It was recorded live as is with minimal editing, so what you hear is what you get. Sorry! 

Thanks to Denise for moderating the episode and for Shawna and I no longer being friends and my thanks to Matthew Johnston for providing a brand new, exclusive track to the podcast, called of course, 'Nobodies Are Somebodies'!

Matthew Johnston's music takes him on a journey of faith and deals with a period of psychosis in his life and the strength he finds now to rise above it, and more so, that keeps him grounded when he feels life is slipping.

Proud husband and father, Matthew and I used to work together in what seems like another lifetime ago. We reconnected late last year and during the time I found about his music and was more than happy to share it on my shows, and more importantly, he was willing to let me share it. Through that I had to know who the man had become in the 7+ years that we lost touch. What I found can't be covered in one podcast episode. His latest album 'Out of My Mind and Back In Again' itself deals with a lot of the content on this episode, from being on the verge of losing his reality to coming out on the other side with new hope and new ideas. Matthew shares where he has been and where he is going, and I just like you will when listening to this episode, learned even more about him just be letting him talk in an open mic.

And he also shared a very cool acoustic set of his most favorite tracks, all recorded in one take in my Chevrolet Bruise the day before Halloween. Check the video of his set on the SebCamCo TV YouTube channel link below, as well as more links about Matthew's music. Enjoy the show!

On September 21st, 2018, a devastating tornado ripped through parts of communities in the greater Ottawa, Ontario areas, such as the town of Dunrobin and the Quebec city of Gatineau, destroying people's homes, property, businesses, schools and more. Several people were left without shelter and and many more without power, some areas almost a whole week without. Warnings came but in this part of the country, actual tornadoes are few and far between, and unfortunately, most were caught unprepared. 

To date only one life was claimed. The damages in certain areas is extensive and the next year to year+ will be spent rebuilding and regrouping. 

Former podcast guest, also, model, musician, actress and magpie herself Penelope Goranson pulled together some contacts she made in the biz and secured the Live on Elgin venue on Elgin Street in downtown Ottawa to host a disaster relief benefit concert on Halloween night to raise funds, awareness, love and support for all those affected and for people to come to have a good time and support the people who needed our help now more than ever. The NAS podcast was happy to be invited down to record and enjoy the event, and I was lucky to be able to secure some superb chats with some of the talent and organizers on hand that night. From our loud conversations in Live on Elgin lounge, this episode are their stories

THANK YOU!

It's a 'Nobodies in Toronto' 2018 edition and as teased in the previous episode's teaser, myself and Open Topic Podcast host Eric V. are/were hitting the mean downtown streets of Toronto, and actually encountered very friendly and helpful people, as well as friendly drivers on the road, who helped us at least get to the subway stations so we could begin our historical underground journey. And even though it did not turn out like we had expected or hoped, it was still an interesting trip full of hazards and mishaps and near misses, but all in all a good starting point for what was the basis of comparing an established subway and street car system to the one being built (finally) here in Ottawa, Ontario. 

This podcast episode is supplemented by some videocast videos found both on the Nobodies Are Somebodies Podcast Facebook page and Facebook groups - if you wish to see more of our journey into the subway tunnels and around the downtown of Richmond Street East in Toronto. You can also see addition footage and dialogue by checking out Eric's Open Topic Podcast on the below link:

This episode of the podcast is a preview of what myself Chad Vice and Eric V. of Open Topic Podcast will be doing when we visit the big underground streets and tunnels of Toronto, Ontario, Canada coming up in November 2018, as it's the return of 'Nobodies in Toronto' but with a different take on this year's feature. Instead of featuring guests from the city, we are taking the time to go on an underground tour of the city's historical subway and street car tunnels as well as visiting the famous underground shopping mall. That and who knows what else, and it will be captured via various audio and video clips that will make up the following week's podcast, as well as video to be found on the Nobodies Are Somebodies Facebook page and the SebCamCo TV YouTube channel

Eric gives us a preview of why he wants to do this feature, what inspired it, who he's talked to about it, and his growing interest in the political and structure of his home city, right here, in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, the country's capital city!
