Or you know me from listening to kiss FM in Milwaukee. However you know me howry came upon this podcast thank you Phyllis and I appreciate you being himself. Accountability one of the first things I wanted to talk about how many people you know when your life that don't take accountability for things that they do or things that they say that they're going to do. If I tell you on the deal podcast every Friday right you expect me to have a new podcast every Friday. When NBC tells you a new episode of this is just drops every Tuesday. You expect Jack in the whole family and Kate in her drama and Kevin and his boyish good looks the whole family to be there every Tuesday night and if it's not. Your (%expletive) right. Because they're accountable to it obviously they have millions of dollars at stake I've got hundreds of dollars at stake but the point is. I would be accountable in the sense that now do me a new podcast for you every week. He can expect something from me every week now ranked in the eighties that in your life as well maybe you are not accountable some way maybe you're looking deep down inside you thinking holy now. I'm not accountable sometimes maybe I should be accountable to. They yup they can expect that from me. I am going to work on having people in on this podcast in aura on this podcast maybe I'll even go to people. Because I have the means obvious they have the recording devices to go to people. And talk to them at their places and hit a lot of the people we're gonna have on this summer will probably be drunk people. Because that this is nice over summer. Yes that's another topic for another day I am not drinking all summer in Wisconsin which is really hard to do. That's like saying how many good do Vegas and not look at boobs. Keeps it it's hard to date of who. Italy look around the blinders on it's hard don't go anywhere and that's DeVon alcohol in this town. Yeah Milwaukee and Wisconsin. Huge with a drink in if you don't know. Other upcoming guests on the ever eggs off the radio podcast of course Alley in givens if they'll be on here at an even I have and asked him yet technically. And really talked to him but this podcast democratic Disney we talked just about it popped yet they'll be on it. People that I skydive with his Scott innings of pretty radical sport would you agree jumping out of an airplane. Would you believe that I have 400 sky dives over 400 sky dives which is a lot right. But if you ask me I don't think that's a lot of Mike Ford at sky dives I know people with fifteen and 20000. Sky dives yes and then serious in these people are. Very interesting. Would like to share them with you like other parts of my life that I half. I have a traitor that work out with all the time. He's got a wife and two kids and one on the way in three dogs he works a full time job as a trainer and he's a great daddies of the husband. I don't know how he juggles his life but it would bring back guy in the show is a very positive person I've another guy that I know he's a vet.

Ricks knows meet people and there are cooler than him. That's really what I wanna do if I can get cooler people to be on my podcast to listen for those people that are cooler than me. It's probably a lot of interesting people that I talk to in the shall not gonna bring boring people on the show maybe I will bring somebody blowing on maybe that will be the wicked twist. Instead of bringing super interesting people I'll just bring duds I'll bring that guy that brings my Amazon packages every day. That guy on the he has an interesting story and a now and that may be another podcast. Is bring me do another tapping about the freedom and having a podcast. Because on the radio were kind of we have our hands title limited as far as what we can talk about how long we can talk about things so here. I don't really have a formula I'm just kind of fly by the seat of my pants if you can't sell already. So that's kind of the freedom that we have with a podcasts. I'm working on something called mental health Monday's suicide is a big thing in it happened in my life. Last year we lost somebody in our families suicide so it's been a big thing for me and actually the coach share for the Milwaukee out of the darkness walk this coming to. A Milwaukee later this year in October. We'll talk about that coming up on a future podcast we'll have people on from. The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention people from mental health Wisconsin. A lot of people that I know in the mental health community and I would like to expose them to you as well because. I think we all need to be a little more honest with ourselves about her mental health. Rains aren't perfect kind of like computers are perfect cars aren't perfect. Houses aren't perfect here there's no way that your brain. Is a perfect working and functioning machine is something a little bit off I think with everybody's brain even a little bit in its okay to admit it's and it's located talk about it so that's where. Mental health Monday it will come in are right now to the story about them. The whole. And this story about Monte Carlo a kind of over exaggerated I apologize for doing that but not really hopefully it is stuck around listening for that you like. We tell this story about your freaking life in your honeymoon and a the evidence so what is this about here's what it is. I found a receipt from a car that we rented in Monte Carlo. My wife and I went on our honeymoon it was this Mediterranean cruise sold the boat would dock right there in Monte Carlo we would get off the boat and walk into the city. And instead of just being able to walk in the general area where we were are right around the shipyard. We wanted to rent a car. Or something so that we can drive around and explore the city. So instead of running like a full on car and SUV they have is little they they were almost like ATVs. But not really. They were street cars that they had they were open on the side they had seat belts they were totally street legal. But they were like golf like exaggerated. Golf cards over to the big power we. You'll like 4050 miles an hour were driving around Monte Carlo right and I'm making right handed turned down an Alley. That I don't see is a one way streets like turn into a one way street and as I realized that I am on a one way street I'm like up. It turned the column turn around really quick while I'm doing my Austin Powers you'll three point turn to turn around. Monte Carlo. Rule over. Turns his life time. Walks up as the French accent is like Juba golden inhaled or thought I'd something in French and I was like I don't speak French. That where tourists and sorry and made a wrong turn I didn't see the sign goes purely a cell phone. I said I'm not myself on I don't have my cell phone with me was you have I didn't occasional. Luckily I had my driver's license from Wisconsin. And I had my passport. My wife had nothing all she had was a shift key this to our room key to the carnival crew whose. If it's at so that's all she has heard that a vacation Eagles who is the and this is my wife this is a lot of she's my wife wins identification on. And over exaggerating his accent a little bit but she didn't have ideas so he goes and he takes my passport and may I be back to his car. He's running it back another car pulls up behind him tonight got to. Carla police officers in their car talking about god knows what I don't know what's gonna happen are we going to be in trouble are we gonna make it back to our boat before it leaves. Thank goodness they let us go with a warning as it relates clip. You must go all still pretty terrifying to be have you know stopped by the law on a different country altogether. You know come to think of it Monte Carlo is so nice and if you think about it. They James Bond movie. Casino Royale the original one was filmed in Monte Carlo select a whole bad ass seen. Is exactly what it's like some wondering if maybe the prisons are super camp like they're old gold plated everything. Just like everything else to money Carlos so maybe going to prison in Monte Carlo wouldn't have been so bad but regardless. Pretty terrifying and all that it's at this finding this procedure here so thanks to going through my.
