This Week's Guest Is Frank Trigg!!

On this week's episode I welcomed UFC Hall of Famer Mr. Frank 'Twinkle Toes' Trigg into the virtual studio. Frank is a former mixed martial arts fighter, Actor and Stunt performer for TV and Film, colour commentator, television personality, radio host, and MMA spokesman. He has been involved in the combat sports industry, in some capacity, for more than 15 years. As a fighter, Frank Trigg has fought for some of the most prestigious fight promotions in the world, including Ultimate Fighting Championship, PRIDE Fighting Championships, Rumble on the Rock, Icon Sport and World Fighting Alliance.
Trigg began his fight career in 1996 fighting for various upstart promotions and got his big break in 1999 when he signed on to fight for PRIDE Fighting Championships. Trigg made his debut for the promotion at Pride 8, where he clinched an impressive TKO victory over Fabiano Iha. The Olympic trials wrestling finalist and second degree Judo Black Belt went on to claim numerous titles, including the World Fighting Alliance Welterweight World title and the Icon Middleweight Championship title.
Trigg Stopped fighting in 2011 to pursue acting and stunt work full-time. Frank Trigg is revered as much for his accolades in the cage as he is for his unpredictable humour, first-hand knowledge of the sport, and expert commentating. He is recognized worldwide as a colour commentator, popular radio and television personality, and MMA spokesperson. It is safe to say that the success of this American mixed martial artist extends well beyond the cage. As an Interviewer Trigg can be seen giving one of a kind interviews on MmaOddsBreaker.com with fighters from different promotions.
As a radio personality, Trigg is the former co-host of the MMAWeekly.com radio show and TAGG radio. On television, Trigg has appeared on the VH1 reality show ‘Kept” where he tried to win the affections of former supermodel Jerry Hall, and was also featured on an episode of the popular sitcom ‘King of Queens, Hawaii Five-0, Murder in the first, Houdini, The Bridge and NCIS LA just to name a few. A few of the films he has been in are Red Belt, Frank and Lola, Awakening, Street and is currently filming Any Which Way They Come.
When he is not busy acting and training for stunts, the dedicated father of four devotes his time to his family and to giving back to the community through youth mentoring, involvement with Phi Beta Sigma fraternity and motivational speaking. Trigg is also very active on social media networks such as Facebook and Twitter and Instagram.

This Week's Guest Is Professor Donald D. Hoffman

On this week's episode I sit down to chat with Professor Donald D. Hoffman who is the Professor of Cognitive Science at the University of California. The good Professor first came to my attention with his incredible TED talk "Do We See Reality?" I watched it twice in one sitting partly due to being so fascinated and partly due to not fully being able to recant what I had just listened to when trying to describe it to my wife in a text.

Afterwards I decided very quickly thee best way to learn from this man, other than enrolling at said University, would be to bring him on the show and talk to him in the virtual studio about this and his various other papers.

This chat is both very intellectual (Hoffman) and very not (Me) but Donald managed to break it all down into understandable chunks even I could follow. So sit back and listen to some of the weirdest and coolest scientific thinkings and research you will hear this side of Halley's Comet.

This Week's Guest Is Nurse Jackie Star Stephen Wallem!!!

On this week's show we welcomed the very talented Stephen Wallem into the virtual studio for a chat about his career, diabetes and other off topic subjects haha. This is one episode you don't want to miss and the kind of interview I would like to do far more often.

Stephen is a stage and television actor. He is best known for portraying the role of Thor Lundgren in the Showtime series Nurse Jackie from 2009 to 2015 and for his one man musical revue, "Off the Wallem", as well as numerous theatre productions. Wallem is also a playwright, composer, and director.

Wallem was born and raised in Rockford, Illinois, and worked as a stage actor and After Dark Award-winning cabaret singer in Chicago before moving to New York to make his television debut on Nurse Jackie. National tours include Forever Plaid, Into the Woods and Scrooge with Richard Chamberlain. He accrued nearly 2,500 performances as both 'Jinx' and 'Sparky' in various companies of Forever Plaid, including Chicago, Las Vegas, Denver and the first national tour. Wallem portrayed 'Judas'/'Padre' in the Court Theatre's acclaimed production of Man Of La Mancha (After Dark Award for 'Outstanding Performance', Joseph Jefferson Award for 'Best Ensemble') and reprised his performance at the Long Wharf Theatre in New Haven. For the Ravinia Festival, he appeared with Tony-winners Patti LuPone, Audra McDonald, Michael Cerveris and George Hearn in A Little Night Music, Passion, Sunday In The Park With George and Doll with David Hyde Pierce (all directed by Lonny Price). Wallem also originated the role of 'Arvid' in the Broadway workshop of Kristina från Duvemåla, written by Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus of ABBA. 

After wrapping up season 3 of Nurse Jackie, Wallem teamed up with costar Edie Falco for a cabaret show entitled The Other Steve and Edie. The production, conceived by Wallem and Falco with musical direction by three-time After Dark Award winner Beckie Menzie and direction by Tony Humrichouser, ran for a 3-night limited engagement at The Laurie Beechman Theatre. The show received numerous critical accolades, with one reviewer stating “There was a well thought out balance between serious ballads and more humorous pieces, the obvious forte of Wallem, who delighted the crowd with two parodies, one a spoof of “wordy lyrics,” another a takeoff on Wicked’s “Defying Gravity,” changed to “Defying Parody"

Next up you can see Stephen in the theatre production of Poster Boy which is inspired by actual events surrounding the 2010 suicide of Tyler Clementi, a college student who brought national attention to cyber-bullying. Poster Boy is a new American musical by Tony Award-nominated composer Craig Carnelia and playwright Joe Tracz. A community of gay men in an online chat room come together to discover what drove one of their own to take his life. Directed by Olivier Award-nominee Stafford Arima with movement by Danny Mefford, this provocative and moving new musical lays bare the complexity of protecting our privacy, identity and humanity in the digital era.
