E0028 – Warren Cummins – Northern Cuisine

For Episode 28 of the A Story Not Forgotten Podcast, Liam sits down with Warren Cummins, a fellow distinguished gentleman he met through the Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride, when Warren offered up his sidecar as a rolling camera platform for the event. But there is so much more to Warren than just a cool bike. He shares a story of a research trip in the far North and the sorts of cuisine (and practical jokes) that you find out on the tundra…

A Story Not Forgotten Podcast

One of the best parts of our job is learning about people and hearing their stories.  Although some of our clients allow their life story projects to be available to the public, others are kept private for their own personal reasons.  That is why we created our podcast that we call “A Story Not Forgotten“.  The podcast gives us the opportunity to interview people and ask them to tell us one story from their life that we can share.

At the time of writing this post, we just released episode three of A Story Not Forgotten and on that episode we interviewed Les Wiseman.   Les teaches communications and all forms of writing at Royal Roads University in Victoria.  On the show, he tells us a story about how he went from being a construction worker to becoming the associate editor of a prestigious magazine while hanging out with legends like Frank Zappa, Iggy Pop, Tom Jones, Bob Hope, Wes Craven, Joey Ramone and Kurt Vonnegut.
