For the third episode of the Season 1, I got talking to Mario Dell’Olio. When i was thinking about starting up the podcast, it was a throwaway comment of Mario’s that made me finally decide to go for it! He read from his book Coming About on a Facebook Live video, and on it I asked a question. He commented that it was a good question, and that made me wonder if I should take this good questioning skill and apply it to a podcast… and here we are!
Mario and I talk about his Italian-American upbringing, the story of how he and his husband Jim survived not one, but two shipwrecks, the conflict Mario sometimes has between his faith and his sexuality and more. It’s one of my favourite interviews I’ve done and Mario has become a dear friend since. Have a listen below!
If you couldn’t tell, I was quite nervous as Mario’s episode was the first-ever episode I recorded! Thankfully, we got on like a house on fire and everything went swimmingly. If you’re interested in more of Mario, check out his website, or follow him on Twitter. Even better, check out some of his books below!
Of course you can always watch the interview of Mario Dell’Olio on my YouTube page too!
