the lady with white stockings is dying I did the prank over oredi enjoy tricking people like Frank and yeah okay this is about the show punk I R The Ashton Kutcher was born Fred was big kid he heard the will or will of all the drama thing where they um they had a prank done on he came out like a Porsche like a very expensive Porsche and some kids like smashing it and with the punches I was a there there are a few freaking moon as well when they mess with his Porsche and you're just like I don't know why signed release form for this yeah because the media just like yours is like seventies a pro the series proper use it right now in the late Frank Becker structure Fred was a big kid he was chosen for him but he was called Fred shirt from his big kid he said playing football at his cow that has going is fourteen but he never made the starting lineup because he didn't take the coach's orders seriously is that important I mean because some some coaches like that some do most oh that's interesting he read a lot but he didn't study for school very much inside reading as they call the business share he was said to be very entertaining talker and very religious ok and Fred ran away from home when he was sixteen and up in Rhode Island in a very small town that had a sister sian monster shirt a sister she gets where they do sister shining yep yep yep sister nations yet all the different guesses you know as as sorry as we are going through it and think and while you and I know it sisters in monasteries mean right do some of the listeners maybe not know a lot of them probably idiots why do you tell these morons his helmet his sisters and modest areas I mean it's a great talk he do stuff with people I just cannot talking let's see it says right here doesn't schools I go to I go to the Cambridge happen it just doesn't find young people don't care just be great to get a month to talk I'm going every month yeah like the Silent monk sister she is a member of this suspicion order oh right I don't think there's enough room in a religious order of monks and nuns so the monks known as the traps are ye so it just sounds like a fancy name for whatever I say station sounds like they do agricultural work or they did ok so there are months of little and suspicion by name White monk or better teen member of from a Catholic monastic ordered that was founded and ten ninety eight and named after the original establishment at sea to that and sister see a local of burgundy such is the place we go a long road oh I how much that not worth it that's why we don't we dig and weed day and we did a little google things around the doll up so he joined the monastery as a novice which meant he was clothed in Monk's robes and officially became a member of the order but it would be these five or six years before he took the vows so that is quite an interest is a pledge in a motorcycle gang right so they're giving all the stuff yeah guess the wary all the others I hit the road to get the silence the quiet of the dollar is just you don't have to fully commit yet you are five years of the sort of I tried it on yes sort of on the robe every month from spring or Rite among Springer I hated make it after four years Fred last four when you're when you knew that there was no line it seemed the semester senior year has been free periods well he left a nineteen forty four nineteen forty one World War two is coming and Fred enlisted in the Army but they gave him all the equipment in God but he would be a soldier for sixty six years I quit but it turns out Fred did not like life in the army and so he went AWOL K now because he deserted he needed so he took the identity of an army friend named Anthony Magnolia so wait he hopes this guy likes the path of least resistance a man who simply finding a place in the Emmy's and maybe got some commitment issues may be yet so he insists he just goes AWOL take his buddies existence yet who read this correctly is already in the Army yeah buddy to his name have to take this fight the trend because of the podcast so as Anthony he joined the Navy what's the week after Pearl Harbor ok he think that this is I guess he thinks that the Navy League different than the Army Army was the worst time I made for something like that the I you know or be great if I was in the Army but on a boat I got a new name a new tag a new life I'm doing the Navy now not idiot I made that he was trained as a hospital corpsman but at some point he realized he would be landing on a beach in a war right so he's being trained to basically be it sounds like a medic yes so he's getting off the fuckin both out of tough Russian the beach of position yeah and they realize that people be shooting at him so he decides to create a college background for himself which would let him apply for Officer candidate School so then of the guys Russian the beach because he's not Bill Lerner right wood as a novice or a year not one of the first guys off at Fox so if he if he gets in these officer courses and takes them then he doesn't need to get off the pup so far ok so he makes up this college background is now a graduate of Iowa State College any out a letter from Senator capture of Kansas who praised his character how to get the letter he just fuck and I don't he got that letter but he managed to peep my pages written it yet again it seems like the best version but he did not include enough mathematics in his Scholastic history and he was turned down so OK you know every good before we all make mistakes yes ok that didn't stop read from what he's not doing anything he doctored another transcript of credits including one with more math Fred was an amateur when it came to forging documents in the Navy realize the credentials were counterfeit ok and so he ran for it to get a new name I the web activities familiar with any joined aces dear sisters you know what's the trappings of the Abbey of Our Lady guess Manny in Louisville Kentucky there's other options we then must be a go where you're a monk or go are comfortable go to the Army Army or monk this really was a crew out of forty this guy just wants a crew of pals want some bros he won some bros he wants to hang with Brody was bro's that he joined a biker gang Denny joined the Sharks this time he use the name Robert Linton French ok this was also a person whose identity he took ok nia catch this flight no that's mine I think I missed my last that's the top of opinion in this this podcast you might get the feel of what it's like to live in Los Angeles the helicopters fly overhead I told you that story when with my family saw a helicopter and you thought that Ringo Starr the like what I was like haiz no they're not good where I live there's like two above me at all times like Buddy Up us all day did we do it ok so so French was this French guy Robert French which is still Anthony who is still fret to fret and he's gone and now he's gone he's still a man okay that's true isn't it when he takes real identities they don't vanish yeah yeah it's not like a soul collector I want to be what's the effect is a graduate from the University of Michigan with the PhD in psychology from Stanford he learned the background thread learn the background of French from a college catalog and then got copies of documents using like burst it if it gets and university credentials so he jus scope this dude in the back of the magazine like all the empty ghosts or college catalog he finds a guy is smart and accomplished and then even figures out where he's from and he was born here and it gets right to say they need a burst of good just doesn't watch he's just hitting of the identity theft lottery second and one next to us to Chicago where he entered the clerics of St via Tor an order of Catholic Teachers and studied philosophy and ethics at DePaul University yesterday it's weird that he's studying ethics is a little bit ironic the cage people what is right and wrong I love my dad Robert French he got straight A's but actual earned straight A's ok so now while Robert Robert Cup were Robert Fred Anthony Robert Anthony French quote Maybe the instructors were impressed by my PhD well you don't have one well yes he did because he's Robert Frank writes Right has a PhD so he his method he loses in the character deaths one day when he was parking a car at a railroad station in Chicago while wearing his Roman collar a bunch of Navy came out of the station of the late Fred recognize them as his beach but I am and was very worried they would recognize him and give him up but they passed him by Kay that's a little hairy yes that's nerve wracking but as you closer to taking the Holy orders in becoming ordained so he's he's getting close to becoming a priest right now he's he's going he's in he's in these Amman is in the monastery he know he's in he's in he's at DePaul University but he's studying studying ok God has become a cleric or whatever God's priests big big chipmunk chipmunk by the way which is a new show coming out on them to integrate any real ad It's Me DJ mag month I have cancelled the Laos islands I shouldn't Even Be doing This year to get major out of own so he so he coming close to being ordained he can take a quote in this little game I was playing there always comes a time when you find yourself getting into deep now Fred was actually super religious so what he was doing was too much it was about to be ordained as a a bite or increased so once again to bail so he is he actually starts feeling bad as he gets the Doctor Jekyll and Mr. Hot Like how is he the sweet lady who know shit he starts his search feeling weird inside like up until a point and then when it like when he does because then it's between him and got right to give is being ordained then it's like a human god he can then you've got the certificate that you lie to God right yeah so bad I think he's got commitment issues wherever Fred was he always kept a stash of money in case you had to make a quick exit to call this his Mad Money Friday ok next is really pious next to it you Pennsylvania and taught psychology at Gannon University does he know he's teaching psychology ok he's again I think he still Robert French yeah yeah after that disrupt fees are learning about psychology well after the Los Angeles and got a job was when he would teach he would he would stay chapter head he would read the chapter the week before and then teach them the next week that's how he taught it's air tight I I left him after that he moved to Los Angeles and got a job as an orderly at the Brothers of Saint John of God sanitary him then once again that's quite a name yet that's a long way this is Gods in that area Brothers of Saint John of God Center then once again using a Danny Robert Frenchie got another job teaching psychology this time at a college near Libya Washington has never studied psychology write essay reads the Book Studies Chapter and stays a week ahead and looking go wrong with this plan will vote for the first time in his life sense since the Navy he felt safe he liked his life there and he decided this is what he was going do to settle permanently Robert Francis yes as Robert French is now just I was the craze is Robert French diver Robert French to settle down rather fragile of the omelet I rather friend he did the talked in the eye Robert French bourgeois they're going to be anyone else he was very popular at the Cottage French party of me if he made a lot of influential friends in the town one of whom was the local share is always someone you want to befriend they became very close and the sheriff made Fred a special deputy so Fred could enforce the law is around campus as Fred as Robert so it is a Breaking Bad situ the many fine too close to the sun be popular in the area Fred now he's just a cop well he's a campus campus cop as well as a popular professor at the local college interesting by day he teaches psychology that he doesn't know by night he enforces the laws under a name that is I hear the bullshit artists so so super popular right so bad in that he starts going around making speeches in support of the sheriff who is running for office again ok but one day the sheriff showed up on campus and arrested Fred and handed him over to the FBI yes OK I mean that that really it like that's when I was you you just can't get cocky if you're in that situ like Look you've got a great life is Robert French okay to teach a bullshit state chapter and sang with the company became the the spotlight on you ego I knew French when he came to the sheriff's office and saw the two FBI agents when the friend said hello Ferdinand the feds trade and he had been discovered and he was wanted for going AWOL defended himself or the court martial but he really had no chance it was an open shut case he spent the year and a half in the U S disciplinary barracks in California and while he was in the barracks the Army discharged him so nice finally closure when he was let out Fred went home to Lawrence Massachusetts but he was there for long once again using college catalogs and then reaching out to different agencies for documents Fred became biologist Doctor Cecil who live in Kentucky now he's doing now he's lying about biology the biologists now it's so fun you know I am a biologist know the gridiron but I figure that out if it was very good pilot today the high is going anywhere when the guy go Fred was very good at stealing identity in as little as ten days he could do it he even managed to get payments per certificate even though he didn't know what city haven't been born in He wrote the state statistics office with a sob story telling and he'd been abandoned and didn't know he was from and they told him it's in the road got the certificate the You gotta train people than I like Hodges I don't even know where I am more from the do this anymore LOL me all the people still do all the time that the call of Amazon and they just talk to me to get all your information I'm trying to be struck the time for ages but aides have been at our nowhere from using his new identity Fred got a job as an orderly at a Harvard affiliated eye and ear Hospital memory to be he took the identity of Doctor Cecil him while he did this Fred went to night school and studied law at northeastern what is his deal the jacket note rate what why when you said he's studying at night the only assumption one could make is that he's in the field but he's now currently stuck in the gaming law lies of buttons that is like now I know he didn't he just wanted to get these ideas down pretty pat I just feel like with the malpractice so it hits the fan I would be really go so he's been to prison right so he wants to figure out ways to do this again without getting caught so studying law not as with the goal of becoming a lawyer a stunning lot too as he's gone
