The boys decide to do something a little different on this episode of the Where to Stick It Podcast. It's time for a re-visit! Only the best of the best movies can be qualified for a re-visit, and this one is no exception. We get a double dose of Andy Samberg this week with Hot Rod.
"Life is about motion, and so you have to keep moving forward and trying something new." John Davis Our perception plays a crucial role in how we recover from life-altering events. Being able to focus on the moment can allow us to transcend these experiences and challenges and come out better than we were. Our guest today, John Davis, is a living example of what positive focus and remaining present in the moment can do to turn misfortunes into opportunities to achieve greatness. At 22 years old, John Davis' spine broke in half, dashing his dreams of being a Stuntman, Fight Director, and Martial Artist. Doctors told him he might never walk again, and if he did he could never have a physical career. Using what he now calls the "Five F Formula," John Overcame the limiting beliefs of others and brought himself back. He went on to perform over four thousand live comedy sword fighting stunt shows worldwide, including performing more than one hundred shows on the most remote bases in both Iraq and Afghanistan on six USO tours. He is now an internationally known Speaker, Comedian, Fight Director, and Action Hero. As an international entertainer, John has traveled extensively throughout the world speaking to audiences of all ages and backgrounds in 30 countries and over four thousand live performances. John encourages his audiences to set and reach their highest potentials and awaken their inner action heroes! In today's episode, John will talk about his life journey and the events that led him to who he is today. He will also give insights on how to be positive in life and kick out fear by implementing what he refers to as the five Fs. Listen in!

[3:10] I ended up getting drugged to a Renaissance Festival and started working on a Renaissance Festival in Maryland. [3:33] I met two of the top fighters in the country who gave me a great gift: a series of positive reinforcement that I had never gotten from my alcoholic and abusive father. [3:38] I ended up having these two gentlemen, who were just incredible men, also say to me that they thought I had talent as an actor and a combatant, and they ended up giving me all their training for free. [3:50] I was feeling really good about myself and was going for my black belt, and at that point, I was strong. I was buff, and I was feeling like a rock-hard, masculine guy. [4:03] A buddy of mine asked me to go over to his house and help unload his van, and I agreed. [4:23] He had a van filled with 80-pound boxes of clay. I picked up the very first box, and as I turned to set it outside of the van, my spine broke in half due to the twisting action. [4:34] At the hospital, the doctor said that I had a condition called spina bifida and would probably never walk again. Even if I did, I definitely would never have a physical career and needed to change my [4:51] I was lying in that bed in the hospital, and a friend of mine came in, and he brought me a book to read, written by Bruce Lee, the greatest martial artist that ever lived. [5:22] When Bruce wrote that book, as I came to find out, he was in traction in the hospital and had just been told he'd never do martial arts again. [5:46] I started reading that book, and it was about his philosophy on martial arts, not about a technique where I found a couple of things that I latched on to quickly. [6:06] One of them was staying in my present moment, and the other was mental flexibility. Whenever adversity comes up, by staying very flexible in those moments, you can achieve anything. [6:15] Because I had to stay very present, I could not invest in the future that the doctors were giving me; I couldn't take their beliefs but my own belief. [6:25] I started flexing the muscles of my upper neck and slowly over the course of a month, flexed all the muscles down my back until I got to my injury. [6:42] I started flexing my hips, which was below the injury, and the doctors were blown away since within a month, I was moving the hips that they thought we never move again. [6:51] A couple of weeks later, I was able to sit up, walk down the hallway, and go to the bathroom on my own, and then at a year, I was back to what I would say was normal physicality. [6:59] I did not take the doctor's belief and did what I had to do, and after a year and six months, I was back to my full physical self. [7:33] I'm fortunate because I was raised as a young Catholic boy, and when I turned 18, my mother told me that spirituality is a personal journey and that I needed to find my [8:37] I traveled all over India and all through the Middle East, and studied every form of spirituality I could find, and I found the universal truth in all of it. [8:50] When I look back at what I did to get out of that bed right now, I come back to a couple of things. [9:00] Buddha says, 'what you think, you become, you create your world,' Gandhi says, 'You must be the change you want to see in your world,' the Bible says, 'as a man thinketh so is he,' and Jesus said 'whatever you ask in God's name will be granted.' [9:04] Moses said God's name is 'I Am', and I am is your present moment, not your 'I will be' or 'I was' and so you have to sit and get into that present moment and realize that you are the creator of that experience. [9:17] All this manifested in the rest of my life, where I became a professional stunt man and did everything I have ever wanted to do. [9:47] What I do now is I go into corporations, and I awaken the interaction heroes in their teams and get them moving. [10:12] When I was doing my comedy show, I found I was enjoying the time off the stage more than I was on the stage because I was sitting in the audience talking to people awakening their interaction heroes and getting them over their adversity. [10:20] I go as a corporate action hero, and I bring something so unique, which are whips and dump trucks and comedy, into a program. [10:45] The final thing I do in my main keynote speech is I pick the timidest person I can find in my audience, I bring them to the stage, and in under five minutes, that person learns to crack a whip and hit targets out of my hand. [10:56] When you look at your life, you only have one moment that you can do thought, word, and deed, and all your past is memories of present moments, and so many people sit at this moment, and they live in the victim mode those past moments. [12:04] The problem with negative people is they live in victim mode and are focused on victim mode, and therefore their subconscious mind shows them victim mode, which puts them in this never-ending treadmill of negativity. [13:04] The only way to break that cycle is to take your present moment and start stacking positive, successful present moments. [13:15] Going into a new school year, students and teachers are looking at this year coming up, and they think it is daunting, but the successful outcome of this year isn't going to appear magically in your present moment. [13:26] Your key is to stay here in this moment and make it as positive and successful as possible, and that outcome will come and surround your present moment experience. [13:47] I was the overweight, introverted kid who was bullied through entire schools at that time, and so when I look at the kids going back to school right now, I feel for the ones who feel marginalized. [14:33] Life is about motion, and so you have to keep moving forward and trying something new. [15:30] Commercial break. [15:50] I have a hard time with negativity because I'm such a positive person, and I've walked in my life with a smile on my face, which is fascinating by life. [17:01] The number one thing that stops everybody from achieving their goals is how you manage fear. [18:33] One of the quickest and easiest ways to get out of your way is to realize a couple of things. [18:48] When you break down fear scientifically, it is an emotional reaction to some future event that may or may not happen. You focus on a negative outcome because you wouldn't be afraid if you were focused on a positive outcome. [19:20] When people feel like they're in fear and feel like they can't breathe, it is a mental state but not a real state, and once you believe you are in something, you can not control it. [21:36] When you take the second to exhale and label it, it becomes an external thing and now you can do whatever you want with it, which is important. [21:48] Apart from releasing fear, you have to focus, and then you have to work on your belief, faith, and [21:58] Sometimes faith is only developed by results over time where you start stacking present moment successes, and your faith build [22:16] The last one is flexibility, where when something comes up that seems contrary to what you're trying to achieve, you have to stay flexible on those moments. [22:33] When I look at this from the perspective of the conscious and subconscious mind, If I'm focused on a goal, and my subconscious mind shows me something that seems like it's going to stop me from getting to my goal, I have to keep my mind in play stay focused on the goal so that my subconscious mind shows this to me. I have to clear any obstacle out of the way. [22:48] If you're focused positively, you can achieve anything you want in your life, so you have to fearlessly focus with faith and follow through with flexibility. [23:12] Today's choices are tomorrow's outcomes, so take today and make it positive and successful and make good choices. [25:06] When one of the moments doesn't go well, don't beat yourself up because beating yourself up is just wasting the next moment. [25:15] ………………………………………………… Thank you to our January sponsor!

This EP features John MacDonald. Johnny has spent the last 25 plus years as a stuntman in the film industry. I met John as a Linebacker for the Concordia University Football team many moons ago, and our paths never crossed after he left the school. We re-discovered each other on Facebook and rekindled a friendship. Johnny Mac was a hard-charging football player, intense and physical, and it's no surprise to me that he made a career as a stuntman in the movies. Movies like the Incredible Hulk, X-Men, White House Down, Total Recall, Man of Steel, and TV Series like DC's Legends of Tomorrow, Prison Break, and 12 monkeys are amongst his career credits. I thought his story, the physical demands of the business, and the balance of this macho career, and his role as a father which he cherishes deeply, would be an interesting journey to discuss. Enjoy

This week on the In Depth with Graham Bensinger podcast we revisit a 2019 interview in the Hollywood Hills with Jackass star, Stephen Glover. More commonly known as Steve-O, the stuntman and comedian talks about finding stardom after the release of MTV's Jackass, risking his life for fame and fortune, and his battles with drug and alcohol addiction.
Eddie Braun recently joined host Elias in the cave! In 2016, legendary stuntman Eddie Braun successfully performed the one stunt no one, not even his childhood idol, daredevil Evel Kneivel, had ever accomplished – the famed flight over Snake River Canyon. (During Kneivel's 1974 attempt, the parachute on his Skycycle X-2 was believed to have activated too early causing him to crash. Kneivel's flight was the second most popular televised event that year-earning better ratings than the Super Bowl.) Because no motorcycle existed which could fly ¼ mile, Kneivel tapped the best - NASA engineer Bob Truax – who worked on the intercontinental ballistic missile - to design it. Unfortunately, it resulted in a historic crash, forever tarnishing the reputations of both American heroes. Eddie's achievement generated enormous media attention. What the world didn't know as he finally restored the legacies of the 70's icons by soaring across the canyon at 439MPH in 3 seconds, instantly reaching 10,000 horsepower, at 8Gs, 3000 feet in the air in a steam-powered rocket rebuilt entirely from Truax's original design (save for modifications to the parachute), is what transpired beforehand and the unprecedented hurdles one of Hollywood's biggest stuntmen faced to get there. Eddie's epic journey is now chronicled in STUNTMAN (premiered on Disney+ on July 23rd) / EP'd by Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and partner Dany Garcia.

This week I learned "squib jackets" are a thing. Like, I always knew about jackets. And with Alex doing SFX makeup I'm aware of what squibs are. But combining the two was never a concept I had thought of until this week's guest, Paul Drechsler-Martell, casually mentioned wearing one on the set of Daredevil a few years back. You see, Paul is a stunt performer. He does the dangerous things you might see in a movie or television show that other people either physically or legally can't do. For example, in Daredevil he had to get shot by pretend bullets a bunch of times while literally everything else in the room exploded around him; hence the need for the aforementioned squib jacket. We've known Paul for years dating back to our time at the local theme park where we tried to entertain people while not sweating to death. But since then, Paul has been a busy man doing stunts for programs like Gotham, The Blacklist, Mr. Robot and tons more. A quick glance over at his will show you the rest but I think you get the idea: he's good at what he does. So. With all that said, check out our chat with Paul as we dive into his world of stunt performing, his love of martial arts, and what it's been like for someone who works in the film industry over the last 16-ish months of hell. Enjoy! -Jr.
Danny Hamilton has been my best friend since the 6th grade. As kids we were always filming something and later we started a band. Danny joined the National Guard out of highschool and served in Afghanistan in 2010. No farming talk on this one just reminiscing on the good ole days.
I am Marc Hershon, your every-other-weekly-host for Succotash, the Comedy Soundcast Soundcast, and this is Ep262. I'm calling it “Revisitin' 3 Old Faves Plus 2 New Faves, And A Sad Goodbye, Too.” Before we jump into the deep end, I want to remind you that, if you missed last week's Epi261 “Clippin' My Way Back To You”, with my illustrious co-host-at-a-distance Tyson Saner, in which he featured clips from Girls 1 Kitchen, Strange Times, and Round Springfield, you can still fill your ears with it up at Apple & Google Podcasts, Spotify, Stitcher, iHeart Radio, and pretty much everywhere else in the known soundcast universe. For this week's installment, I have a sack stuffed to the gills with not three, not four, but FIVE clips from – as the title intimates – 3 faves, which are namely Wheelbarrow Full Of Dicks, Story Worthy, and Monster Party. In addition, I have clips from two shows we've not featured before: 91 Donkey Lane, and Death is Hilarious. We're sponsored this time around by Henderson's Pants new Poncho Pantz, which would be welcome news for all of those folks suffering from unseasonal flooding going on around the world if these pants weren't fictional in nature. RIP MAT GEORGE Before we wade into this week's clippage, though, I wanted to take a few moments out to get to the “Sad Goodbye” part of this episode's title, and observe a sad milestone we passed this past week. Podcaster Mat George died this past Saturday morning in Los Angeles, the victim of a hit-and-run traffic accident. Mat was 26 years old, and the co-host of She Rates Dogs along with Michaela Okland. Known for his Twitter and Insta feeds under the handle @matchu-chutrain, the soundcast he did with Michaela brought the popular social media page SheRatesDogs to the soundcast world — and listeners' worst dating stories along with it. The milestone I mentioned is that fact that, in most of the accounts of Mat's death, he is being identified as a “podcaster”. Our podcast, or soundcast, medium has been around for almost 20 years now but it's only now being recognized as a profession and I think that, through his untimely passing, Mat is the first among us to have the status of “podcaster” dignified by the mainstream press. In honor of Mat George, we've got a short clip that includes his final sign-off from the last episode of She Rates Dogs to drop before his death. Gone too soon at the age of 26, rest in peace Mat George. He and Michaela's show is very entertaining, and I urge you to listen to She Rates Dogs from wherever you get your soundcasts. CLIPS WFODThe inspiration for playing the next clip came up on Twitter this past week, when I saw the the account for WFOD, or Wheelbarrow Full of Dicks, as it is actually called, had retweeted a tweet from Spreaker, which had asked them, “Has your podcast received any media coverage?” They answered, “We were featured on Succotash Show twice!” Which is true: First in Epi47 back in 2013, and again in Epi100 in 2014. (They were also mentioned in Epi141 for their wrong side of the argument position of Soundcast vs Podcast, when they said “soundcast” sounds “silly”.) Well, Mike and the gang, clearly your stance was wrong as the world has long since embraced “soundcast” BUT we're not sore winners at Succotash and we are pleased and proud have having run the soundcast gamut along with you lo these many years. So hoping that the third times the charm, here is a clip from the most recent episode of Wheelbarrow Full of Dicks, in which the crew reminisces back to the beginning of the pandemic and a little old felon named Joe Exotic. Story WorthySo one of the reasons I even saw the tweet from Wheelbarrow Full of Dicks was that it got re-tweeted by longtime soundcast friend Christine Blackburn. We have only ever crossed paths in real life at the old LA Podcast Festivals, but she's always been game to recommend soundcasts and help connect me to folks to interview for this show. And her show, the Story Worthy soundcast, is one of the longest running story-telling shows out there. And she's done a great job of gamifying the format over the years and in various kinds of judged settings, including Story Smash, which you can catch on YouTube. (See the blog entry for this episode at our homesite, SuccotashShow.com, for clickable links to the show I'm mentioning as well as the socials for the people themselves!) So, anyway, I figured it was high time to clip Christine's show. This snippet comes from recent Episode 684 featuring guest comedian and video director Gary Robinson. They're chatting about how some celebrities become so heavily identified for a defining role. Death Is HilariousNow I certainly don't mean this episode of Succotash to be a downer, what with the memorial notice about Mat George up top and all, but I had received a note this week from Rachel Diamond, a PR assistant for a soundcast called Death Is Hilarious, asking if I'd give it a listen and consider playing a clip. So I listened and I liked it and I clipped it and it's here. Hosted by Tawny Platis, a widowed comedian who lost her husband George just a couple of years ago, and helped by her friend Sam Peterson, she was determined to channel her grief in helping herself and others to heal, find relief, and the power to laugh again in the face of death and other trauma. This clip is from a recent installment where Tawny chats with alt New York comic Ben Wasserman about dealing with the passing of his father. Monster PartyGetting back into the swing with one more old fave this show, it's a clip from a recent episode of Monster Party. Hosted by a quartet of my old chums Matt Weinhold, Shawn Sheridan, Larry Strothe, and James Gonis, they usually sit around or, more recently because of the pandemic, Zoom around with a guest and go to town on horror, suspense, and sci-fi movies. They recently had a phenomenal “get” of a guest, actor Steve Railsback, and they talk extensively with Steve about his long career in movies and TV. A film that he became well-known for was 1980's The Stuntman, in which he starred with Peter O'Toole, and directed by Richard Rush. In this clip, the guys talk to Steve about that project and he gets into what it was like working with the likes of O'Toole and director Rush. (NOTE: If you download THIS week's episode, you'll hear yours truly – that's right: Me, – guesting on the show for a couple of hours or so yakking about movies in the theme of “Summer Scare-cation”. A ton of fun and you can grab it everywhere online.) 91 Donkey LaneRounding our our true handful of clips – that's 5: One for each finger – is 91 Donkey Lane, a very funny sketch-ish soundcast that feastures the misadventures of Robert Bacon and Nate Lopez who become roommates in an apartment at 91 Donkey Lane, a place described as “magical but very dangerous.” This clip is from the episode entitled “Total Recall”, and featured Robert trying desperately to get away on a “mind vacation” so he can relax. This requires the same technology seen in the movie Total Recall, and the doctor helping him sounds suspiciously like Arnold Schwarzenegger. And the first place he travels to is the version of Mars featured in the Total Recall movie. Too many clips for us to get to the Tweetsack this week — sorry Tweety — but we'll hit it next time. Remember to listen for me on this week's edition of the Monster Party soundcast. If you have seen any of friend-of-Succotash comedian Dana Carvey's Instagram postings lately, @TheDanaCarvey, and see him using these kind of flat photo puppets of Joe Biden, well, that's MY handiwork! For reals. We used to make these bizarre puppet videos years ago and he's started to do some new ones as part of his soundcast Fantastic! With Dana Carvey. So he called me up and asked me to make up some new ones. Up next week in this very same feed will be Tyson Saner with another sweaty clutch of soundcast clips for you so be sure to come back around. And don't be afraid to rate and review our show up on Apple or Google Podcasts, especially with some tasty 5-star reviews. Stay safe as the summer wears on and the Delta COVID variant spreads out. Mask up inside when you can, wash your hands in a thorough manner – you know that drill – and and if anyone should happen to tap you on the shoulder to ask if you've heard anything good lately, please be sure to pass the Succotash. — Marc Hershon

In this episode I found a great speaker Named John Davis, he's a former stunt man, comedian, college professor, and much more. He had a horrific back injury that paralyzed him for a good amount of time until he taught himself and pushed himself to strengthen his back muscles in an unorthodox way. He's done so much in a short amount of time, and he has never let any limitation get in his way.
MONSTER PARTY GOES OFF THE RAILSBACK! JAMES GONIS, SHAWN SHERIDAN, LARRY STROTHE, and MATT WEINHOLD, are maniacally proud to present an incredible topic, that is also our guest! Prepare yourselves for an intimate audience with one of the most talented and unconventional actors of our time... STEVE RAILSBACK!!! Having STEVE RAILSBACK on MONSTER PARTY, borders on the surreal. His career spans decades, and he's tackled some of the most challenging and controversial roles an actor could hope for. He made his film debut starring in the Vietnam related drama, THE VISITORS, directed by legendary director Elia Kazan, and gained nationwide attention for his chilling portrayal of Charles Manson in the 1976 television film, HELTER SKELTER. Steve went on to act with Peter O'Toole and Barbara Hershey in the critically acclaimed and Oscar nominated, THE STUNTMAN, and made everyone on this podcast jealous by starring opposite Mathilda May in Tobe Hooper's sci-fi classic, LIFEFORCE. Man, acting sure is a great job! And for MONSTER PARTY fans, Mr. Railsback has appeared in a slew of other memorable genre films and TV shows that include TURKEY SHOOT, THE TWILIGHT ZONE, BLUE MONKEY, SCISSORS, ALLIGATOR II: THE MUTATION, THE X-FILES (GO DUANE BARRY!), BARB WIRE, ED GEIN, PLAGUERS, and many more! Although still recovering from an on-the-set injury, Steve was gracious enough to make to time to talk to us about his career, his insights on the craft of acting, and his incredible personal relationships with such greats as Lee Strasberg, Elia Kazan, Peter O' Toole, and Patrick Stewart. Now this is a guy who keeps great company! THANKS AGAIN STEVE RAILSBACK! YOU HAVE NO IDEA HOW MUCH THIS MEANT TO US!
