Ep. 39 ~ Amanda Louise Author Interview ~ Be the Black Sheep

Caught up with author, Amanda Louise, who has been working on her inspirational debut book ‘Be the Black Sheep’!! Had a great time reminiscing about our university days in Hervey Bay, and didn’t realise just how much that time shaped our lives!! We have both retained so many of the lessons learned when we were studying mass media & public relations over 13 years ago(!).

Spoke about what lead Amanda to the exploration and promotion of the ‘Black Sheep’ lifestyle, and why she decided to write the book. We then had a chat about a few of her inspirations, including Walt Disney, Tony Robbins, and Tim Ferriss (author of ‘The Four Hour Work Week).

Amanda has done all the research and ground work for her readers, including attending motivational US style motivational conventions run by Tony Robbins, and the Aussie women’s creative conference, 9 to Thrive. We discussed our shared passion for helping people, and being a part of positive communities!!

Amanda has been working on her social media presence, providing videos, live streams, interviews, and posts designed to help people overcome fear, visualise success, and most of all, that it is ok to be different. Make sure to check out ‘Be the Black Sheep’ today!!

Ep. 37 ~ Mission Impossible: Fallout Post-Cinema Review (In-Car Test)

**PODCAST CONTAINS SPOILERS** Testing out the old audio recorder in the car on the way home from the movies after watching the new Mission Impossible: Fallout!! Calling this test a fail as the audio was really off, so next time we will just have to contain ourselves until we get home (or take some notes or something!). The indicators as we were waiting to turn were just wayyyyy too annoying. And it might be good to have a few minutes to gather our thought for clarity!!

We both really enjoyed the movie, found it had a fast moving and often unpredictable plot, but was perhaps just a little long. The characters were fun, and it was interesting to see Henry Cavill try to break his Superman mold (and why exactly he NEEDED that moustache!).

Ep. 35 ~ Paul Eiding Interview (Comic Book Writer – Blastosaurus, & Voice/Actor – Incredibles 2, Transformers, Ben 10…)

Caught up with one of our best comic con friends, Paul Eiding, to chat about his latest projects!! Chatted about his voice acting role as Reflux in Incredibles 2, working with his family and theatre friends to make massively viral videos (and fund raise for LA park conservation projects!), and the highs and lows of his venture into the world of comic book writing on Blastosaurus, with New Zealand artist, Richard Fairgray.

We also spoke briefly about his voice acting role as Perceptor in the original Transformers cartoons, as Grandpa Max on Ben 10, and his work in video games such as Snake from Metal Gear Solid, the ‘Vault-Tec’ guy from Fallout, the ‘arrow to the knee’ guy from Skyrim, the ‘construct additional pylons’ guy from Starcraft etc etc etc (too many to mention in one pod!). Forgot to chat about his role as Pa Kent in upcoming DC animated movie The Death of Superman… oops, hopefully he will let us call him back another time soon!!

Was lovely to catch up, and we very much appreciated Paul taking time out of his busy schedule to chat to us about all his exciting creative projects!!

Ep. 32 ~ Phantom Dinner Interview w/ Sammy J & ‘Chronicle Chamber’ Podcast

Our quick after dinner chat with Sammy J was POD-BOMBED™ by Dan, Jermayn & Stephen from the Chronicle Chamber Podcast (how dare they, haha!!!!). Listen in as we discuss the fun that was had at the 30th Lee Falk Memorial Bengali Explorers Club Annual Charity Dinner, and the Frew Publications presence at Supanova Sydney. The noisy chatter you can hear in the background is the dinner party wrapping up, as many of the dedicated dinner phans were heading home after an evening of everything that is Phantom and phun (and an open bar) 😉 Looking forward to catching up with all our old and new friends in the Phantom community real soon!!

Find Sammy J on ABC iView, Netflix, or at his Website:http://www.sammy-j.com/

Chronicle Chamber Podcast: https://www.chroniclechamber.com/
*ChronicleChamber began life in 2006 as a humble discussions forum. It wasn’t long after that it was grown into a fully fledged website quickly becoming the on-line resource for all your Phantom needs. It was the first fan-run website to interview creators from all major Phantom publishers and in 2013 debuted X-Band, the world’s first and thus far only Phantom dedicated podcast.
