Dickheads & Debauchery: Former NYPD Detective Uses Humour To Talk About Mortality



Vic Ferrari is a former NYPD detective who grew up in the Bronx, NY. After seeing his fair share of horror, as well as stupidity, he turned to humour to capture his stories as well as advice on how to avoid meeting your maker. Check out our interview as we talk about the foolish things we did as kids, how we survived the 80s and how viewing our mortality through the lens of comedy can be food for the soul.


Not In The Pink. Tina Martel uses art & humour to discuss the challenge of being positive about breast cancer when it positively sucks.



As individuals with different experiences, we almost always act differently when it comes to adversity. What exactly is adversity? If you look on dictionary.com, it will tell you that, “Adversity is an adverse unfavourable fortune of fate. A condition marked by misfortune, calamity of distress.”

We all have experienced adversity in some form whether it’s something small like a parking ticket or a larger adversity, such as a death in the family or an illness.

How do you react to adversity? Do you go into a rage? Become a victim? Do you simply laugh it off? Or, like my guest today, artist Tina Martel, do you get to a point when you realise, no matter how much positive energy you project onto an adversity, sometimes you have to admit and face the reality that the adversity positively sucks.
