Numero dos is here. Heath regales us with his ultimate childhood Christmas memory, the story of "When Heath met Steve" (cue Harry Connick Jnr) and the infamous Steven Seagal story (albeit heavily redacted). Also my puns reach a new low as does the audio in the last 10 seconds due to uncontrollable connection issues.And if you enjoyed this episode more than Heath enjoyed the idea of strapping a go-pro to a gorilla, then please like, subscribe to stay updated on future episodes and leave a review as it really does help others find this show.Additional Links Daniel Fenech – Brick Studios: https://www.brickstudios.com.auCrowd Funding Campaign for CHRISTMESS : https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/christmess# See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

So possible trigger warnings as I’ll be specifically discussing anxiety and sharing my own experiences with this mental health issue.Also below is a link via the Australia Counselling website for anyone interested in accessing more information about the services that these fantastic mental health organisations provide to Australians.

Special Sponsors Series with Jai Kemp of THE BEER SHED

Today I host the first installment of my Special Sponsors Episode Series for Heaths film Christmess and chat with Jai Kemp. A bloke who in the late 80’s and early 90’s tried a hand or TWO HANDS (1999) at acting. But perhaps his greatest acting feat was the ripper of a furphy he told his wife that lead to him becoming a legend in his own right as the now owner and sometimes brew master of the iconic watering hole THE BEER SHED. Please check out the link below of this slick short promo for The Beer Shed created by Daniel Fenech and his team at Brick Studios:https://vimeo.com/480154848Additional Links:https://www.brickstudios.com.au/https://www.facebook.com/DiaryofaCrowdFundedFilmhttps://www.facebook.com/jose.pucella.1 See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

Special Sponsors Series with Brian Laul of OZFUNLAND & GOOD MORNING MACARTHUR

On this third installment of my Special Sponsors Series, we skip merrily down that fabled "Yellow Brick Road" to chat with accomplished journalist, prolific thespian, creator and co-host of Good Morning Macarthur and proud proprietor of Leumeah's one and only OZFUNLAND. The Wizard of Campbelltown himself, Mr Brian Laul. I really apologies for the audio issues that occur in the latter half of the interview. However I trust that the conversation with Brian that takes us around the globe, so to speak and lands us back in OZ and on the doorstep of Heaths fourth film Christmess, will leave you smiling from ear to ear.
