    Episode 9 - Survivor Story with Comedian/Producer Bonnie Davies

    Episode 9 - Survivor Story with Comedian/Producer Bonnie Davies

    This is our first Survivor story for the podcast. Occasionally we'll talk to someone who fell into their own pickle and clawed their way out, like Bonnie Davies. She's a friend of the pod, character comedian and owner of The Gelo Company. Covid hit her hard, she hit rock bottom and bounced back. 

    Trigger warning, we broach the topic of suicide.

    Episode 8 - Fitness Maverick Dave 'Pow' Tabain

    Our first episode of season 2, and our first guest to wear his hat backwards the whole interview. He's very cool, extremely fit, and truly inspirational. He walks/runs us through how to get back to that pre-covid body (assuming it was good) and maintain fitness irrespective of black swan events like a global pando etc.

Mere Mortals Podcast ,

Fresh & Unique

I love how people can still create fantastic new ideas from a well established medium. Jacques and Emma make very serious topics fun and interesting to listen to, and then add on some stand up at the end. Awesome stuff and I hope there are many more episodes to come!

Episode 6 - classic

Love this episode. I have had the pleasure of working with Mick. The way he spoke and articulated this episode is exactly how he is in person, was great to hear

Zammit and Barrett! 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Quite the pickle unpacks a real life situation and asks all the great questions leaving you thinking “Damn, why didn’t I think of that!”
A fun and inclusive style of interview Incorporating the funny wit of veteran working comedians Emma Zammit and Jacques Barrett as they tackle life one podcast at a time, procuring relevant industry expertise, and taking the time to unpack all the goodies and capped off with outstanding material from the new experiences they’ve just drawn upon. Highly recommend!
