Ep10.

My guest today on What I Don’t Talk About @ BBQs is professional actor, Douglas Spafford.

He’s had a long and winding journey from Birmingham in the UK through Scotland, the NT, Wagga and now to Sydney and this very day you can find him treading the boards, plying his craft.

During my conversation with Douglas I was reminded of the motto of my high school, St. Clair High in Western Sydney. It was three overlapping C’s, and you know what, I’m not sure if I’d ever committed them to memory then but I certainly can’t remember them now.

Talking to Douglas this logo reappeared in my mind and I found 3 ‘C’ words that really connected to who he is and reflect his own journey.

They are Courage, Confidence, Commitment.

Douglas is in this thing and giving it all he has, and that’s something to be respected and admired.

He’s currently performing as Clotten in The Acting Factory @ Emu Plain’s production of Shakespeare’s Cymbeline which is on until April-7. Entry is by gold coin donation. Find the details here: https://www.facebook.com/The-Acting-Factory-149933181758227/

Without much further ado, let’s raise the curtain on this chat.

Enjoy!

Ep6 – Jason Dibbs

Ep6.

Jason is a writer, a maker and a teacher.

I’ve known him as someone who has dedicated his life to searching, exploring and learning. I often think of Jason as someone who, in his quiet moments, is listening for that original frequency that rang out in the moments just before the Big Bang because there might be something there that tells us something about ourselves.

Whatever he does, he does it with a serious and an all consuming intent. He lives very intensely and I was grateful for the opportunity to sit down and talk to him about the stories from his life that has shaped his path.

We go all over the map during this chat and I was pedalling fast to keep up. Jason speaks with a very considered and deliberate cadence yet beneath the calm surface is a mind that’s going at warp speed.
