I love that I’ve lived my life based on gut instinct, craving the desire to learn, evolve and constantly pursue new opportunities.
 
This attitude, born of a lust for life, happiness, a want to love myself and my life lead me to Los Angeles last year to run social media for LA Podcast Festival.
 
These days I rarely do stuff for cheap or for free, unless it’s for business development, a close friend or a cause that I believe in. In the case of LA Podfest, it’s a little of column A, but predominantly as I want to ensure that I do the right thing by the US government and only pursue work opportunities through legal channels, if & when I do have the legal right to work in the USA… but O1 Visas are a whole other story… 😃
 
Anyway, LA Podfest has forever changed my life – I’ve met so many wonderful people from around the world including my own podcast fans, my now producer and become friends with an array of talented, enigmatic, giving and hilarious comedians and one of those is American stand-up comedian & ‘Road Stories’ podcaster, Murray Valeriano.
 
Born in Memphis, Tennessee, the son of an ex-military born again preacher, Murray Valeriano has travelled and live all over the USA and eventually followed up on his dreams of living in California.
 
In today’s chat at my West Hollywood pad, we chat about what it was like to grow up as the son of a preacher man, the ‘Road Stories’ podcast that Murray records with top comedians about their stories and life on the road as a stand-up comic, the challenges of writing a new hour on religion in a country like America, where even daring to raise the topic can turn a crowd in seconds, my own beliefs and thoughts on religion, the best ever heckles he’s ever had, balancing his life in Santa Monica with movie industry wife and young son, Frank, with his career, podcast and surfing and lots, lots more.
 
I love that at a young age that I opened up my mind up to meeting new people and not being afraid to take a leap of faith based purely on gut instinct. It’s lead me to so many mind-blowing and wonderful opportunities that I’ve never dreamed of and making inspiring new friends like Murray Valeriano.

Every now and then I have a podcast guest on my show where the conversation just flows and this Los Angeles podcast with hardworking, talented & award-winning Australian actor, Dan MacPherson is one of those.
 
Born in the beachside suburb of Cronulla, just south of Sydney CBD, Dan MacPherson was originally spotted by his agent whilst at a triathlon in southern Sydney and was soon placed in a role on long-running Australia soap opera, Neighbours.
 
Since that time Dan’s gone on to a number of different acting and presenting roles in Australia, the United Kingdom and the USA, including the musical theatre in London, British police drama series ‘The Bill’ (which I grew up watching in my parent’s household) and most recently ‘The Shannara Chronicles’, a brand new MTV TV series based on the best-selling fantasy novels by Terry Brooks.
 
In today’s podcast, we enjoy vast, fascinating and ranging chats at length about the significance of Australia Day or “Invasion Day” as it’s known by some people, the beauties of life in Los Angeles and California, what ANZAC Day means to both Dan and myself as the grandsons of ANZACs who fought in the 2nd World War (ANZAC Day is also his birthday), Australia’s need to evolve as a country and culturally to make it a place that’s welcome for people of all backgrounds, nationalities, cultures & gender/sexual identities, career discipline, the hunger for personal & professional growth and what it takes to take a leap of faith and to start from scratch in a new country in what has already been a highly successful acting career and the excitement of working on MTV’s ‘The Shannara Chronicles’.
 
This is an absolute cracker of a podcast & no doubt one of the most candid chats you’ll hear from Dan MacPherson.
 
Let’s get into it!
