64 Welcome To The Clearing: The Cave Man - Dick Willis! (UKHR)

Update: 2021-08-22


Welcome to Episode 10 of "The Good Listening To Show" on UK Health Radio: 

"Your Life & Times With Me Chris Grimes!" continues!

Please welcome "The Cave Man" himself - Dick Willis! 

In this wonderful conversation we talk about his life-long passion for all things subterranean and a love of Caving - and he describes himself as 'blundering through life but generally coming up smelling of roses!'

And unsurprisingly his "Clearing" is the entrance to a particular tunnel complex - the Clear Water Caves in Thailand.

Dick also tells the fascinating and harrowing story of the epic Thai Cave Rescue of the Children's Football team - as Dick knows the international rescue Team well - in June and July 2018. 

Twelve members of the Football Team - aged eleven to sixteen - and their 25-year-old assistant were rescued from the Tham Luang Nang Non cave in Chiang Rai Province in northern Thailand when it unexpectedly flooded, trapping the whole Team inside, sparking an international Cave rescue.

A lovely, rich - deep (see what I'm doing there?!)  and textured conversation indeed!


"Your Life & Times With Me Chris Grimes!" is my Weekly Show version of "The Good Listening To Podcast" on UK Health Radio, with a potential audience reach of 1.2 Million!

It's the feelgood Storytelling Show that brings you "The Clearing": Where all good QUESTIONS come to be asked - and all good STORIES come to be told...

Think "Desert Island Discs" but in a Clearing - and with Stories rather than Music!

There are some lovely juicy storytelling metaphors to also enjoy along the way:

The Clearing itself - A Tree (where we get to "shake your tree to see which storytelling apples fall out, in the form of a lovely storytelling exercise called "5-4-3-2-1") - some Alchemy - some Gold - some Shakespare - and a Cake!

Also think about William Shakespeare - and about Jaques in "As You Like It" in particular:

"All the world's a stage,
And all the men and women merely players;
They have their exits and their entrances,
And one man in his time plays many parts,
His acts being seven ages..."

And as my Guest in the Podcast:  Now is your 'moment in the sunshine' to share your story!

"Who are you? What's your story? And what 'life-lessons-learned-along-the-way' would you like to share with us?"

And whilst we've got you here in "The Clearing": "What would you like your Legacy to be?  How would you most like to be remembered?"

The Show where all my guests have at least 2 things in common: They are all Creative individuals  - and all with an interesting Story to be told!
