I Love Green Guide Letters 200th Episode with Steele Saunders, Ronny Chieng, Dave Thornton and Fiona O’Loughlin.

Interview #61 Steele Saunders Mark II. Part 1.

Interview #62 Steele Saunders Mark II. Part 2.

Australian comedian, podcaster & businessman, Steele Saunders is living the dream. For the past year and a half, apart from his specialist Melbourne sneaker store The Sure Store, the iconic I Love Green Guide Letters podcast and working with Studio 10, he’s been producing the Steele Wars podcast for Star Wars fans the world over.


With a growth from 10K downloads per week to over 150K+ podcast downloads per month
between Steele Wars and I Love GG Letters since we first podcasted together 8 months ego, Steele has quite obviously struck a chord with the digital community and is rapidly building a large online following.

After an epic 3 hour podcast last time around, I decided (for my own sanity and to savour quality content) to split this podcast recording over 2 weeks.

In Part 1, Steele and I talk at length about the Star Wars – The Force Awakens premiere, his wonderful connection with Harrison Ford on the red carpet, building a career in media and the next Star Wars instalments due out in 2016 and 2017.

In Part 2, we discuss growing running a number of different businesses including his imported sneaker & streetwear business The Sure Store, sister business Spire Distribution, that imports and distributes to high-profile clients around Australia, giving first, demonstrating your passion and learning about your desired industry before asking others for help, learning to delegate to staff members whilst juggling a number of businesses or roles, selling dodgy belts to Aussie comedian Tommy Little, the challenges of stand-up comedy and producing a one-man hour-long show every year for Melbourne Comedy Festival, a life split between Los Angeles and Melbourne with wife and modelling agent, Jacqueline Hau of LA Models and much, much more.

You don’t have to be a Star Wars junkie to enjoy this chat with a friend own mine, who I’ve come to know as a tenacious, ridiculously hard-working and inspiring individual. This podcast is all about having a dream, wanting to love what you do and then making it a reality.


Very inspiring stuff, Steele! Let’s get amongst it!

Hot & Delicious: Rocks The Planet podcast series

What I love about my life is that every single important career decision that I’ve made has been the result of taking a leap of faith… 

12 months ago I didn’t know Graham Elwood and Chris Mancini AKA Comedy Film Nerds, creators of Ear Buds: The Podcast Documentary
and 2 of the 4 founders of LA Podcast Festival… and here we are… January 2016, now mates and working on several wicked projects, brought together by the power of podcasting!In May last year after recording a Hot & Delicious: Rocks The Planet podcast with American comedian, podcast and 1 of LA Podfest co-founder, Dave Anthony, I approached Dave about having Hot & Delicious join the line-up and drive social media for LA Podcast Festival.
Flash forward 8 months and I’m sitting in a Melbourne CBD hotel room recording a podcast with the Comedy Film Nerds duo about their Ear Buds: The Podcast Documentary launch, LA Podfest and the Australian Star Wars – The Force Awakens premiere, which one of the CFN podcast fans, Eric Cullen, stumped up $5K cash so that Graham and Chris could fly halfway across the world to attend the premiere, then record a dual Star Wars spoiler podcast episode collaboration with Steele Saunders for Steele Wars and Comedy Film Nerds.
Today we chat about jetting to New York, Japan, outback Australia and around the globe to film the Ear Buds: The Podcast Documentary (due out in 2016), raising $140K in 40 days on Kickstarter and only hitting the target 30 minutes before deadline, how podcasting is changing the USA showbiz machine, building digital communities and the impact that podcasting has had on our respective lives, geeking out over the Star Wars – The Force Awakens premiere, including our Star Wars memories from childhood and how it’s part of the driving force 😉 for Graham and Chris in their careers today, LA Podcast Festival and so much more…If you’re a Comedy Film Nerds fan, a Star Wars tragic, podcast lover or a die-hard movie groupie, then this is the episode for you… I’ve already had a sneak peak of the Ear Buds: The Podcast Documentary and it is a beauty!

Here… we… go…
