    #10 Can You Be Friends With an Ex? ft. Nikki Fit

    #10 Can You Be Friends With an Ex? ft. Nikki Fit

    My guest today is one of my nearest and dearest friends, Nikki Ruderman.

    I want to introduce you all to Nikki because she represents ambition, discipline and fun really beautifully. I became close friends with Nikki about 8 years ago. I would see her regularly at gym. Any day that I went to gym, she would be there and on my off days she would also be there - lifting more than you and I combined - and usually doing it with a massive smile on her face.

    As Nikki and I became best friends we began to have these incredibly thought provoking and deep conversations about life, careers and in particular, relationships. A lot of my positive attitudes towards relationships come from Nikki's insights and perspectives.

    Today we dive deep into the world of commitment and dependency in relationships. Only 1 or 2 years ago, committing to someone and being dependent on them is something that I would have avoided at all costs, but now with fresh perspectives and attitudes...not so much! Enjoy the podCARst!

    #9 Blake Pavey's Make-A-Wish

    #9 Blake Pavey's Make-A-Wish

    Today's guest is the inspiring comedian and TikTok star, Blake Pavey.

    Blake grew up in Corowa, an Aussie country town, with a population of about 6000 people. When he was in year 11 he started to go viral regularly with his funny daily comedy sketches.

    Blake has amassed an audience of over 700,000 people on TikTok. Can you imagine being in high school at 17 or 18 years old with a following like that? Let alone in a small country town?!

    He was born with Cystic Fibrosis. This is a genetic disease that damages the lungs and digestive system. The average age expectancy of an individual with Cystic Fibrosis at the time of Blake's birth was about 35.

    I'm a fan of Blake's work ethic and vision...most of all, though, I love that he is a man of his word!

    A special Thank-Q to Blake for joining me today! To see more of Blake online check him on TikTok and Instagram:

    #8 Nothing Is Off-Limits for Isaac Butterfield

    #8 Nothing Is Off-Limits for Isaac Butterfield

    Today's guest is the beard-bearing, Isaac Butterfield.

    Isaac is an Aussie comedian who has no trouble selling out shows when he tours. A large reason for this is because he isn't afraid of speaking his mind, which sometimes means being controversial.

    As I interview more and more comedians, I'm noticing a trend in the way that they see the world of comedy. First and foremost, they want to make people laugh BUT they also possess an inner child curiously wherein if they have a crazy idea for a joke, regardless of whether it is politically correct or offensive, they have to make that joke on stage.

    They just have to see what happens when they say what they are thinking. The thing is, if the crowd laughs, they have to make that joke again.

    When comedians get 'cancelled', you have to understand that the jokes they are telling on stage at their filmed and planned comedy special is likely the 100th time (if not more) that they have told that particular joke to an audience. It only stays in the show if it gets the laugh and to a comedian such as Isaac Butterfield, it seems like nothing is off-limits. Laughter is king.

    This is the sport of stand-up comedy. Pair that with the sport that is social media and Isaac Butterfield is someone who objectively plays the game very well.

    I took Isaac from a stand-up gig to his dinner plans for the evening and we got into some fantastic and even deep conversation. Enjoy!

    #7 The Problem With Being Politically Correct ft. Michael Shafar

    #7 The Problem With Being Politically Correct ft. Michael Shafar

    Today's guest is the delightful comedian Michael Shafar.

    Michael is a talented guy. He finished high school ranked in the top .05% of the state. He studied and completed law and biomedicine only to ditch it and pursue his calling of becoming a stand-up comedian. He has been performing for 8 years and is also a writer for The Project on channel 10.

    Michael has been diagnosed with testicular cancer twice and beaten it twice. He dedicated his entire 2019 Melbourne International Comedy Festival show to raising awareness about testicular cancer. His entire hour on stage - at a comedy festival - was about his battles with cancer. I'm always impressed when people are able to bring light to a dark place. You've gotta have big ball to do that.

    #6 The Greatest Job in the World ft. Rachel-Lee Anderson

    #6 The Greatest Job in the World ft. Rachel-Lee Anderson

    This week's guest is my dear friend Rachel Anderson - but on YouTube you may know her as Rachel-Lee.

    I met Rach at a YouTube event and she has since become a close friend of mine. She has been making videos on YouTube for 10 years. 10 years! In the internet world that is a LONG time! Because of this though, Rach has experienced many different online niches and has pivoted her content many times based on what she is interested in. If you think about it, the lifestyle vlogger is the coolest job. One day you can just be like "hey, I like cleaning my apartment in a t-rex suit" and your core audience will be like...... "okie doke."

    Earlier this year I took a holiday after burning myself out from 4 years of making content without a break and Rach helped me a lot along my journey. This is where our conversation began. Enjoy!

    A special Thank-Q to Rachel for joining me today. I loved our relaxed chat!

    #5 She Broke Up With Me, So I Became Successful ft. Joe White

    #5 She Broke Up With Me, So I Became Successful ft. Joe White

    Today's guest is the very funny and insightful comedian; Joe White.

    There is something incredibly wholesome about Joe's brand of humour. He mostly draws on stories of his family's immigration to Australia in his teenage years. They were refugees from Sudan living in extreme poverty. His dad was an abusive alcoholic who left his brave mother to fend for Joe and his five siblings.

    What I love about today's podCARst is how the conversation flows so naturally from Joe's incredibly tough upbringing to present day, where we share our stories of past and current relationships and future exciting ambitions. The last 13-ish minutes of our conversation is my favourite!

    I feel like today's episode has a little something for everyone. Enjoy!

    A special Thank-Q to Joe for joining me. I loved our chat and, personally, got even more out of it when watching it through again during the editing process.
