    Jon Mallard

    Jon Mallard

    They say “birds of a feather flock together” but what happens when a couple of odd ducks come together? Like-minded water avian cause chaos and mayhem? Who knows? This week on The Malliard Report, Jim Malliard welcomes Jon Mallard to the show to duck, dive and roll through a number of topics surrounding the ever-changing, and increasingly weirder events we see happening each passing day.



    Joining us all the way from as far east as you can go on our continent; Jon hails from Newfoundland, loves the weird, and has a great story to tell. Hosting his own podcast called “The Odd To Newfoundland Paranormal Podcast” Jon is no stranger to the weird and strange and has an affinity for discussing it. Jim and Jon get into what podcasting looks like today (during the recent events) favorite guests they’ve had on and much more.



    Now several months into this…ordeal we have had to find new routines, change our ways, and many things that we were used to, have now fallen by the wayside. Many would think that podcast listenership would be significantly up, but quite it is quite the opposite, unfortunately. Most people listen to their podcasts while on their commute, at the gym, and during the here and there bustling that happens in the typical day today. With most everyone working from home, there is no commute and gyms just now starting to open back up (depending on where you are) so when can you really listen to all those podcasts? Visual media has certainly been on the rise though.



    While we can spend all day discussing the negatives from this situation, and not even begin to scratch the surface, Jon and Jim decide to flip the narrative around a bit and highlight some good that has come out of this. Everyone has something. Be it that home reno project that you’ve been putting off for years, picking up that new hobby you’ve been wanting to try, or dusting the cobwebs from an old one you loved, we’ve all had the time to certainly do it. So what are some of yours?



    Jon is a fantastic guest and it truly was a treat to have him back on the show.

    Live Calls – June 2020

    Live Calls – June 2020

    This week on The Malliard Report has some of the most interesting and exciting guests on the show; the listeners! Jim opens up the phones and the discussion for another rousing round of discussion, ranging from current events, favorite past guests, paranormal weather, and a question that is sure to make you scratch your head. Get ready to jump into a fun one with many different facets, because it is open phones.

    One of the hardest things we have had to encounter is the forced stay at home orders that were implemented over the past few months. (The legitimacy of those will not be discussed here at this time). Finding what to do with one’s self in the state of complete boredom has been a challenge. We have had small little snippet to help us (exotic...large cat…human flavored Fancy feast…), but nothing to really keep us going. Normally during this time of year we’re just coming off the high of NBA finals, the Cup has been kissed and held high, and the Boys of Summer are in full swing (pun intended). But this year, we are at a loss. Nothing to cheer on. Nothing to argue over with our rival friends. And let’s be honest, as much as I love watching the puzzled looks as contestants try and figure out the near impossible Technical Challenge of the great Mary Berry herself, or the hijinks between Jim and Dwight, I prefer to sit on the edge of my seat as the back and forth game six just forced a game seven, or parking my backside in an incredibly uncomfortable seat, pay what should be illegal prices for a crappy beer, and enjoy an evening with thousands of others yelling at the Officials who can’t hear and really don’t care what I think. Will baseball return this year? As of the writing of this, the players union for the MLB is in discussions for the possible return and the NBA is slotted to finish the season in Orlando on televised games.

    The call in shows are always a mix bag of topics, and always interesting. If you are only listening via podcast (nothing wrong with that all, and if that’s all you can, then please keep doing so! We love you too!) you are missing out on half the action. Head over to malliard.com to jump into the duck pond where there is always lively discussion, chances to call in, catch past shows, score some sweet merch, and so much more. If you are listening via podcast, head over to your preferred podcast app/platform and give the show a rating and subscribe.

    Dan Hill

    Dan Hill

    It is safe to say that everyone has at least one give away. A tick, an eye twitch, maybe a smirk that someone can pick up on. It something that card players use to their advantage, interrogators play upon for information, and today’s guest on The Malliard Report has mastered the skill and capitalized on it. This week, Jim welcomes Dr. Dan Hill.



    Dr. Dan Hill is…” an internationally recognized expert on the role of emotions in business, politics, sports, and popular culture, and has given keynote speeches in over 20 countries. He's the founder and president of Sensory Logic, Inc., which pioneered the use of facial coding to scientifically capture and quantify emotions in business beginning in 1998 and has in the years since done consulting work for over half of the world's top 100 business-to-consumer (B2C) oriented companies. Dan is the recipient of seven U.S. patents related to facial coding and is also a certified Facial Action Coding System (FACS) practitioner”



    This is fantastic episode and we get to gain some insight in the unique way that facial decoding is used in marketing, politics, and even in the legal system. Dan shares his thoughts on some of the current events and the players involved while discussing their facial mannerisms and meanings. You can keep up with Dan and all that he does (podcaster, author, speaker, and much more) though his website sensorylogic.com and purchase his books through any major online retailer.

    Live Calls – Oops

    Live Calls – Oops

    Oops. Well, this is the best word to describe the beginning of this episode. Listen and you will understand. Life happens, we move on, no sense in dwelling on the past. On to the next thing!



    As things are slowly starting to re-open across the world, there is still a clamor for professional sports. In a normal universe, we’d be in the midst of NBA playoffs and the Boys of Summer would be in full swing…(pun intended.) But here we sit, opening day has come and went, ice rinks are empty, and James Hardin is only able to flop in the confines of his own living room. (You can’t get the image of him falling down, grabbing his shin, and pointing to his pet and yelling out of your head now can you). So what does the future look like for professional sports? The NBA has announced that they will resume the season at the end of July in Orlando, but no spectators as of now. The MLB is in talks of starting but decreasing the pay for the players. The NHL (at the writing of this) remains silent. Are you a season ticket holder for a team? We would love to get your thoughts on the situation.



    While turning into an unexpected live call in show, the duck pond never fails on providing quality content to ponder and discuss. With that, an interesting and potentially new theory is rising regarding the royal family (who are no strangers to conspiracy.) Could it be that Queen Elizabeth is the illegitimate queen? According to this new theory, Anne Boleyn escaped her execution and continued to have children in life. With this, an individual named Joseph Gregory Hallet is claiming that he is a direct descendent of Anne Boleyn and that the throne actually belongs to him, giving him the Title King John III. Certainly interesting to say the least, and will be story to follow as it unfolds.

    Andrew Gruel

    Andrew Gruel

    When people talk of cut-throat industries one would more than likely think of politics, finance, maybe even entertainment. However, there is one in particular that requires an extreme amount of blood, sweat, and tears, one where the entire empire that one has built can come crumbling down on a whim of the ever-changing and fickle consumer. The world of food is one of the most unique arts, and difficult to master, but this week on The Malliard Report Jim sits down with a guest that has done just that. This week we welcome “seafood guru, sandwich junkie, restaurateur, and chef” Andrew Gruel.



    “Andrew is currently the Founder and Executive Chef of Slapfish Restaurant, the award-winning food truck turned international brick and mortar, based out of Huntington Beach, CA. Chef Gruel has taken Slapfish (bootstrapped!) from 2 food trucks to 10+ restaurant locations in just over 3 years. Andrew has appeared on multiple Food Network shows including his most recent role as a Judge on the show Food Truck Face Off. Gruel has also been on "TODAY Show", PBS, Cooking Channel, as well as in numerous publications including The Wall Street Journal, Men’s Health, Food & Wine Magazine, Entrepreneur, and Restaurant Business



    “Andrew is admittedly addicted to the fast pace of the restaurant world and translates that into his business approach to be very hands-on whenever possible. His next project is to establish a monthly changing restaurant space that gives aspiring chef-entrepreneurs a chance to "beta-test" their concept without spending thousands of dollars.”



    If you are fortunate enough to have a Slapfish near you, you must go check it out. The food is fantastic. If not, you can always longingly enjoy the “Epic Shrimp Burrito” from afar through Andrew’s social media @andrewgruel.

The six-string slinger of Savage Garden, Tal Bachman, Lifehouse, and Elvis Monroe, songwriter, and producer Ben Carey. Ben joins the show today to discuss life as a touring musician, the struggles of the lockdown environment, and his experience during the infamous Route 91 incident.

For a short period of time he played in the band Tal Bachman and is featured in the video for the hit single "She's So High". In 2004, Carey joined Lifehouse after the departure of Sean Woolstenhulme, brother of drummer Rick Woolstenhulme, Jr. In 2009, Lifehouse announced that Carey was an official member, stating he was "family to us". He featured in the band's videos "Broken", "Halfway Gone", "All In" and "Between the Raindrops" in 2012. In December 2014, the band announced that Carey would leave to focus on other projects, such as his band Elvis Monroe.

It’s nice to hear other political perspectives outside of my bubble. One where the host and guests aren’t screaming and trash talking the other side in a demeaning manner. They have real and rational adult conversations. Although I don’t agree with many of the political view points I enjoy Jim’s light hearted talks and commentary on today’s world. It’s chill, it’s calm, it’s the Malliard Report.

A well done and must listened to show! Don’t miss it!

In an age where just about everyone is a clone and NOTHING is original, it’s refreshing to come across a show that exudes originality, interest, entertainment and so much more!

The host, Jim Malliard, has his own cadence and voice, which remind me of the great Paul Harvey. Yes, it will seem a bit off for most people used to the spoon fed garbage called entertainment today; but I beg you to listen. Listen to several shows. Check out his guest list and dice in. The Malliard Report gets some of the most sort after guests in the world! And not just “one timers”, they enjoy the host and show so much that they come back! Not bad for a little guy in the great big world of Entertainment!

Isn’t it about time you stop being told what to say, do, and listen to by the powerhouses of entertainment and you finally get the courage to start thinking again and start listen to a show that worth it’s salt? That’s What the Malliard Report is. Listen now!
