The Scary Guy Podcast Smile

This week we met the epitome of this quote from the legendary Fred Rogers.

@brandenharvey has a smile that is contagious. The good news (you’ll need to catch the episode to know what we did there 😉) is, Branden is one of our guests on Season 6 coming soon.

Never underestimate the power of a smile 😁

Fabulous day

The Man In The Arena

“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy kcause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”

Bobby Died

It is with great sadness we learned tonight of the death of the singer, 60’s teen idol and actor Mr Bobby Rydell.
We were honoured to have had the opportunity recently to spend more than an hour in conversation with this generous, kind and talented gentleman.
Hearing his stories of meeting and working with Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis. About his starting role in Bye Bye Birdie and working with the gorgeous Ann Margaret.
We send our deepest condolences to Bobby’s wife Linda and his family.
