I am Chad Vice, co-owner and operator of Championship Vinyl, an online record store. Lots of people are somebodies, and millions more are considered "nobodies". I want to bring you the stories of people of everyday and any day, because even if you think you are a nobody, you are always a somebody. The people I talk to are not famous, but they are all interesting characters. Every week, a new story, a new guest, a new friend. The Nobodies Are Somebodies podcast - listen for fun, hear for life!

 This week on the podcast, I'm proud to bring an 'on location' special from The Arena in St. Isidore, Ontario where The Voices Contest in Prescott-Russell hosted by Maryse Delorme took place on June 8th, 2019 and it went on like a total superstar event. Lots of great singers, performers and of course the judges that made one young lady's dream come true! By now we know that that young lady of all of 15 years old is Nathalie Burden (NATT B) from Limoges Ontario, and she is about to take her beginning career to the next level!  I was fortunate enough to speak with Felix Mongeon, Bella Cat, Nathalie Burden herself after she won, producer and studio owner Paul Harrison, Chantelle Blanchard and of course I pulled Maryse aside and got her post show feelings. The show was amazing, the performers even better, and big shout out to the judges Chantal Hackett, Josie Patenaude, Diane Marie George, Ed Lauzon, and we must not forget the entertaining and funny MC of the event, Brian St. Pierre Links of what all that talent has going on are here below:   Contest the Voices in Prescott-Russell: Winner Nathalie Burden (NATT B): Chantal Hacket Music: Josie Patenaude Music: Chantelle Blanchard Chantelle's Singing Page: Bella Cat Bella Cat Soul:   Harrison Lounge Music Productions: Felix Mongeon Audition Video:  
Xavier Himma originally did an episode of the show wayyy back in August 2018 promoting his cycle ride from the Canada/U.S. border to Argentina, where he was joining Chad Vice via Skype in the midst of his journey.

Joey Messina grew up in San Fernando Valley, California and at the age of 8 really discovered how good "good" food can be! Learning to cook from his grandmother of Italian descent, he knew at that young age that he wanted to be a chef professionally, and he saw his way there letting nothing stop him on his path.  Joey put the chef game as his life's focus; since then he has won and lost at many things, but he is now Fresh Fit Chef and it's more than just about cooking up a great meal for customers; now it's a way of life that inspires him, and I hope his story will inspire you too!

But how does Dave feel about today? Listen up!             Music featured on this episode by Matthew Johnston, featuring his original song 'Nobodies Are Somebodies' from his album 'Wintersleep'
Dave Logan was a part of the 100th Live! episode mental health roundtable and we touched briefly on his story and some of his experiences during that time. Since then, Dave had expressed how much he enjoyed that opportunity and wanted to share his story in a one-on-one. Dave has been through a lot, many ups and downs and he holds nothing back in these interviews.  Here is Part I where Dave discusses growing up in Frederick, NB, moving to Ottawa ON and those challenges with leaving friends and experiences behind and coming to a new culture, as well as entering a successful yet destructive career as a security member in the local hospital. This episode focuses on Dave'e early years and his career at the Ottawa Hospital, plus how his mental health was changing.           Music featured on this episode by Matthew Johnston, featuring his original song 'Nobodies Are Somebodies' from his album 'Wintersleep'

I'm speaking with Christina Ranieri and Vincent Bishop from Ability First Ottawa, a charity group in Ottawa Ontario Canada working to help those living with disabilities with getting services, lodging and helping caretakers when they are no longer able to care for their loved ones needs. Christina was diagnosed with several learning disabilities and Vincent received an Asperger's diagnosis (now ASD) by finding paperwork himself on his diagnosis at the age of 18. Both Vincent and Christina are very open, honest, candid and real with their stories about who they are, who they are not, and what their accomplishments have been thus far. They are also discussing various stereotypes and boundaries that others have placed on them and how they educate people on living with different abilities. A special shout-out to Crystaljoy Parman who was not able to appear with us on this episode but will be joining me on the show in the near future.   Ability First Ottawa   Ability First Ottawa on Facebook:   Vincent Bishop's AMBIGUOUS Album Release Show + Birthday Bash @ Fat Boy's Vincent Bishop's Music:
