We've met along the way this week. We're talking to wild swimmer. Simon murray his international companies swim track takes groups of open water enthusiasts to walk onto of the world. What he needs a pair of speed as goggles. A hat and ability to swim a few kilometers in the warm waters of the mediterranean or the caribbean papp's rather chillier north atlantic salmon. Really good to have you on the podcast list of all. Tell us how open water swimming began for you. Yes a my mouth. Was i High beau daiva sermon. Her as i was a kid used to cheese tightly diving my father was. He was a surf lifeguard from sydney and the night by came over here to the uk so he had a love of open water swimming and then my mammals. I love swimming in the thames. Eat so although the diving didn't work on may cheese. She posted with take me down the thames muslim holidays in our members sitting on the banks of the thames she'd have a radio times manip- picnic blanket and the radio radio full blasting all day. Sit next still with a couple of comex and would sort of sit there and go swimming in in the thames. Every sort of our next to the fishermen and this was in the nineteen seventies early nineteen eighty s when open water. Swimming was definitely not the sole the trendy thing it is now anyway. Something obviously sold of rubbed off there. So let's say it's down to both my mom and my dad that a soda had they sold of facination and interesting in open water swimming and i think the first significant swim that got my interest was the heliport in turkey which was made famous by lord byron swimming across it who actually swam it in honor of leandra who in greek mythology would swim across the halas bonds with laba hero hero on the european side at a cost of sesto us.

If you know what it is and you WANNA learn more indepth or hear from some of these people about what they're doing their successes, their failures there's just not a better platform for it. I know that as soon as the last I, pen conference ended your team started working on planning this. So obviously, twenty twenty didn't turn out to be what you expect when you started planning in two thousand eighteen. So what kind of challenges did you face and say like we have to move this from physical conference to an online space? Well we made that decision very early on. It's really it's impossible to say you have a conference about wellbeing and asked people to make a decision about are they going to rally pandemic or not? We're going to put you to see how much you believing wellbeing. Yeah. So we were supposed to have this conference.

So really as part of the pivot, though it became really clear that we didn't have to.

And more about how can we use this opportunity to expose as many people as possible to this and that's where free.

"Right now We're talking to Kevin Boiler for a couple more minutes. Talking some NFL football with him. Always love talking football. With smart football minds. Let's finish up here with the older quarterbacks talking about Ben Roethlisberger. I look at the A F C u know Kansas City solidified. You know that Baltimore is solidified in the FC sort of looking for that third team, I would say between Pittsburgh and Buffalo, who both impressed in week one. I probably lean with Pittsburgh because of the quarterback playing their defense. I was really impressed from from watching the Steelers on Monday night Football. Pittsburgh may have the best defense in the NFL. There's a few teams that probably would lay claim to that for one week, But Pittsburgh was absolutely dominate any time you can take a back as As good as Jaquan Barkley and limit him the six rushing yards on 15 attempts. That's really something astounding and they've got speed all over that defense. They don't rely on just one player. I not as big of a believer in Ben Roethlisberger. I thought what he did play okay. The giant's defense is not all that great and he looked a little hobbled almost at times, and he was saying this week he felt like he was in a train wreck after one game. Is he going to be able to make it through the full season? I'm a little skeptical about Ben Roethlisberger. And you mentioned the pills. I think that they're a team that You know, they've gotta play better. Yes, they won. But they can't have boneheaded plays from Josh Allen, whose final staff were fine. But if you saw the highlights from that game, he had to really bad fumbles. A few passes that were just so wildly inaccurate. Against the team like the Patriots, who are looking better than expected in that he's gonna have to be precise. No more Josh on bone headed low light. They need him to be lights out in the top 10 pick. That they picked him to be. Kevin has really interesting that you say that because I have felt the same way about Josh Allen during the week like If you just go off the numbers, you would think that Josh Allen played really well but to me the game and maybe evaluating his play came down the one situation they ran. That rollout play had John Brown wide open in the back of the end zone about 80% of the league of Quarterbacks complete that play. That's easy touchdown that you all slap helmets and celebrate. He overthrew Josh John Brown by about five yards like to take Buffalo seriously, he has to complete those kind of place. 100% agree And also, let's not forget they were playing the New York Jets, who may be the worst team in the NFL this year. We'll find out in the weeks to come, but it's not even like they really blew the doors off. Yes, they got out to an early lead, but the final score was 27 17. They really slowed down in the second half. I think that Josh Allen has really gotten away with a lot of mistakes because that defense is so good and because he's an extreme athlete who could tuck the ball and run when he needs to. But if he's fumbling, and he finds himself in a tight game against a better team than the Jets That's going to come back to bite him. Kevin, speaking of the Jets. Can you tell me how most teams their goal is to give their young quarterback as many weapons and resource is and structure is possible? How the Jets think that Sam Darnold can be successful in doing the opposite, like looking at their depth charges. They have one of the worst grouping of skill position players that I maybe have ever seen at this level. You know, I've kind of been likening Sam Darnold to potentially the next Matthew Stafford. Now, Matthew Stafford had Megatron for the majority of his career, but kind of this quarterback that you look at him. You're watching you go. Then he could play. He's got talent. There's no doubt about it. It's just this franchise that he's on is clearly misguided and can't get him in a position to win. That's the way I look at Sam Darnold. I think he's a good quarterback, but the Jets Are just not setting him up for success in the slightest, and it's only getting worse. They're going to start Frank Gore this week end nothing against Frank for He's just ancient 97 years old, and he's going up against his former team. Maybe he could pull out of juice and and get 100 yards or something like that to help him out. But let it be on Bell hasn't been an assist, you know? A lost Robbie Anderson, their top wide receiver, who had 100 yards for the Panthers this week. I mean, some things gotta break for stand, Darla. Some point, right? No, something eventually does have to brake. Let me ask you this question about some of the teams that started off want to? No, I look at the Arizona Cardinals a really impressive win for them in week one against San Francisco. For whatever reason, San Francisco just doesn't match up well with Arizona. They gave them trouble. The two times they played last year, But now I think the hardest thing to do when you're a team like Arizona is you won that week. One game on the road, seven point Dog. Now you have a game that you should win, and now the schedule really starts to open up. Can you stay focused now start off the season for in one with the schedule that you have, or do you kind of read your own press clippings and then lose a game And we, too, that you shouldn't lose. I'm thinking of teams that I really have my own to see how they respond, and we to Arizona is at the top of my list. On extremely and teeth intrigues with the Arizona Cardinals heading into week too, because this is a team that I went out on a limb, and I said, This team's gonna win the NFC West this year them taking care of business against the defending NFC champs in the San Francisco 40 Niners in week one. Help feel me, Help me feel a little bit validated, But that's only one week and you're right now They're playing the Washington football team. And this presented a unique challenge because I don't think all around. That Washington is a great football team. But if there's one thing they do well, it's rushed the passer and get after the quarterback with all of those first round pick that they got up front, including Chase Young, who had a sack and a half. Against the Eagles in week one. That defensive front racked up eight sacks in that game, and it came from seven different players. Simon Murray had the runs for a career day against the 40 Niners had 13 carries for over 90 yards on the ground. I don't think he's going to be able to do that against Washington will he need to do it against Washington? That's another question. I think that it's the defensive front of Washington's could get after Kyla Murray early, knock him off his game. Make this game a little ugly and maybe get a couple of breaks on offense. Who knows? Maybe Washington pulls off the upset and Arizona as you as you mentioned, you know, falls a little flat in the second week after a.

"Battle you are giving Francis but yeah most of the people who apply after after five years and they're pretty they're pretty good it issuing three weeks and it was a great relief that I was called out of the ranks with several others and issued second hand combat pants jacket a belt and boots. Our heads were shaved and we moved to a cramped smelly building in the volunteer compound which which we spent our time trying to clean a few days later we were several of us from the group. Were issued a red plastic epaulette we were now rouge signifying that we had passed Hasta Legion. Recruitment process and we're bound for basic training now known as lays rouges. We passed individually before a colonel in the regiment's commits. HQ to sign our initial five year contract with the legion. We also received Legion service. Numbers mine was one eight five six eighty nine. Yeah so we're through so I'm in and that was probably the worst part of my experience bad experience but that was definitely the the least enjoyable. It was just the whole atmosphere processing if I don't know what prisons like. But that was kind of my go-to experience you know. Just a bunch of meat heads around. Everyone's kind of you don't know what's happening opening taken one out of every twelve. Yeah Yeah and then every day the bureau call the yellow to whole bunch of names. And those guys you're out you just go off to the side to go back and get your kid and they'll send you back to your original Spot that you applied. That's it you're done so everyday you'd be calling him. You're hoping your name. And how long was this time period. It took a boat A month for this to happen. Yeah it varies and then there's another You at this point allegiant myth was dispelled for a short administrative period of time. We were alms songs norm men without names aims and those who needed an alias would be provided with one and so that so that you can just go in there and change your name and it sounds like you still could if you wanted into. Yeah but it's not mandatory exactly so for the Eastern countries it's illegal for them to serve in a foreign minister so for that reason leauge will issue them a false name typically a Swiss based on Swiss passport Canadian passport and they use that for a duration of their career before they can go through an administrative process to get their name back back. In my case I was Canadian. That's not an issue so I kept my name so but if the country three finds out what that was and they call as Legion is Simon. Murray in your ranks Bob to see us. So it's up to you to the maintain the admitted NYDIA. It was alarming. How quickly I'd become detached from my previous life and tethered to new one? That was still being shaped while cleaning the center. Two guys in our group were caught speaking Polish to each other. Although talking in any language besides French had been except over the past few weeks we soon learned that it was no longer tolerated to demonstrate his displeasure of corporal need one of the polls in his mid section and then ordered him to do push ups while he was doing pushups. The core pro kicked him in his ribs demanding that he pick up the pace. This was our first taste of the Legion discipline and a revelation indeed. So yeah our Corporal Sergeant and corporal showed up from the catch Graham Elliot. Which is the training regiment that will be going to and this is them taking us for run and or taking us out and this is where we see the first sign of what's to come? It was interesting I thought it was actually Kinda Kinda cool. That sounds right but it's more like yeah. This is my experience. Military was was good but it wasn't tough if that's the right word and this seemed to me like the right attitude and plus you just spent like Whatever three or four weeks in this kind of jail scenario Jio and not doing any real training and then all of a sudden it started starting so you got no mental? It's you're going you're in the right direction. So it's it's all good. Isn't it interesting that that that's just in your mind. You're thinking right on because that's where I'm very good. I'm I'm like yeah or especially if they deserve while for sure and it's in as I said they they know what they're doing. This is how they weed out the the weaker those that aren't meant to either you can handle need of the gut and some kick to the side you know what good in the trenches and shit goes wrong. We're going to you in life doc Awesome now let's see. I think this is when you get to Castel. Correct saying that right so the Castello this is where sort of we're starting that is the drill. Transient victorine our first lesson. In how life would be as recruiting. Castel came via ritual known as Appel all twenty-five lined up in the hallway along the wall shoulders touching. We've encountered often French each yelling. The number the next number in succession to ensure all section members were present and accounted for the corporal. Prowled up and down the ranks inflicting immediate punishment in the form of a slap to the face or in need of the stomach if there was a miscount at one point Alastair oster after receiving a verbal lashing and hard open-handed slap across the face for getting is number wrong said to the corporal. But I don't speak French corporal. I couldn't help but laugh just a little. It'll it's the French Foreign Legion after all. I was damned lucky to have basic French knowledge. On my side Appel would become a routine in our lives. Its intent was to quickly quickly identify anyone who might have decided to desert it was also a fast and effective way to gather a section together to issue. Orders are first morning. Appel allaster allaster and a Norwegian were missing deserted. Apparently they had jumped the regiment wall. Just hours prior. This seems strange to me. Like what did they been expecting with basic training. They hadn't even lasted twenty four hours in Castel morning. Noon and night are section. Now twenty three men would form up March from the company barracks to the Mess Hall. A corporate boots set the pace calling out the slow legion pace at eighty eight steps per minute. During the first few days are attempt to maintain the timing as well as the proper intervals roles between our rose were ragged in hindsight it was comical the other corporal positioned at our size attempted to instill order by yelling at us and hitting anyone who fell out out of step whether being struck and shouted at helped anyone improve was debatable. So this is where it kicks off and if you see the French Foreign Legion marching you. Guys March at Eighty eight beats per minute which is which is like a third maybe a quarter slower than normal correct march chip is that is that harder is that out of sync with normal. Walking pit is I think. That's the challenge is you gotta slow yourself down And then the introduce music. We'll get there when it wasn't possible for us to do a single more. Push up the it again. I'm fast forwarding but when it wasn't possible for us to do a single more push up we were made to assume stress positions in pushups stance. Knees off the ground with our asses in the air. Anyone who faltered raindrop was kicked until he managed to regain its stats. Thus so there's no I mean there's nothing mean about it. They're just trying to figure out whether or not you want to be either and if you don't well you know that being said you you gotta do your your four months. Basic can decide to leave at the basic but they're definitely putting up the pressure on early and if people desert the they know but they don't. You've done them. A favour really made it easy on the punishments varied read and largely came down to the corporals imagination. Which I can only imagine what that what that ends up looking like? So then when did you go to the farm. When does that happen once? We're fifty The next group showed up so I think it was there for a couple of weeks before we are complete session and then off you go so then you go to a place called the farm and here you say the next four weeks would be our first real challenge in basic training. It's supposed to weed out. Anyone deemed unfit for the legion. We would be presented with our white Khakis only when we completed the farm and that was super foreign to me coming from the Canadian system albeit short. Your they'd said were you guys. We go into the farm for a month and Yeah it was. It was definitely an eye opener but effective where what what part was an was strange to you. We'll we'll just the term farm like it was Ringo Farming Okay and then we show up in. It actually looks like a French farming building and landscape around it but It's an effective tool you there for a month and you just get beasted on and they show you the way of of the legionary if you can hack it good for you if not if you go. How often are people quitting We had a handful probably every week one or two would desert and it was kind of as I mentioned all kind of an understood thing. If it's not for us off you go if the gendarmes pick you up they would be sent back lesion. They do their time in jail and then they don't release them a criminal aspect to it. It's just part of the system weed out the weak and they start to build that Teamwork here based on this kind of thing back to the book. Any error collective or individual resulted in shared punishment. We were only as good as our weakest member. So those who are stronger had best helped the less capable but those those of us who were stronger and more capable soon lost patience when the guy's making our days a lot harder it wasn't long before a clear. Hierarchy of ability became evident within our group. Yep Sam the really trying to figure out WHO's supposed to be there The tough routine brought the expected could result during our first week and other Britain and Australia Today Zealander from the latest group to join. Were missing at morning Appel. Once again the realization that they had a deserted struck me as odd the corporate reactions were minimal ultimately. No one wants a deserter in the ranks. And and then you could get to this. We were broken down into by GNOMES my saying that right beat them be gnomes or groups of two. This is a tradition that date back to the Roman legions whereby two soldiers were designated to guard each other's backs battles and in seal training. We have swim buddies. which is the same thing like in the Marine Corps in the army? I think they call them battle buddies. But so that's a another word for you. Need you need a new one buddy. You need a partner at all the time yet. Another partner all time in that was hunger. Hunger was a constant companion. The combination of physical fitness long hours in the classroom and seemingly end endless push ups took its toll on everyone. How much how much did you enough? We're definitely weren't eating enough to compensate for the calorie burning but that was also part of it. Turning tournaments down gets into the right shape and reference the deserters. I think I mentioned that. It seemed like it was more that. The Brits the Kiwis the Ozzy's the western non-eastern blockers were were deserting. And I think that's because they had some home too heavy. Oh they have it. Easier at homeless eastern blockers. Were they gonNa go you know. They got no choice. So it's a it's ineffective system but it's perfect because potentially losing good soldiers but they're just not ready to put up with certain bullshit early on and now we get to. I think what marching songs marching songs are an important leauge tradition and throughout its history regiments have marched into battle singing. Most songs tell the stories of former campaigns and battles although I respected the lidge legions history. I dislike singing as it was completely alien to my concept of what soldiering should be my previous exposure to army. Life had been an entirely different experience. So you guys are singing songs. A here's an example. I won't do the French version. I'll read the English. The English translation against the Viet against the enemy. Wherever duty calls soldiers of France soldiers of the country we march towards the front legionnaires the battle that begins places enthusiasm encourage in our souls? It may rain grenades and gravel our victory. We will be sweeter but if death strikes us down if our bloody fingers stiffen on the ground one last raid farewell and tomorrow we will wish to train despite the bullets and the shells under fire bombs..

"There's a lot of mystique around it. It's also a very unique organization because the men of the French Foreign Legion generally are not French and one of their mottos which it kind of reflects that is Lazio Patria Nostra which translates to the legion. You'd is our fatherland and when I was a kid growing up I was always kind of here. I heard about the French Foreign Legion and there was definitely a reputation of the kind of reputation. Is that you could be just a criminal somewhere. An escape prison and get to France and you could join the French Foreign Legion. And that's what that's what the French Foreign Legion was filled with. So that always had that kind of mystique around it and around it and I read a book a long time ago called legionnaire by by Simon Murray which is a great book and gives an incredible accountant. Simon Murray Zoo a fascinating guy and I read another book that was called mouth full of rocks which was by a guy named Christian Jennings and that one was is actually from a guy that the main the main theme of that book was. Do not join the French Foreign Legion. He was a deserter. WHO ended up leaving it but but those books definitely left an impression on me about the French Foreign Legion agent? But today we're actually review another book by a legionnaire. It's called Appel a French Canadian in the French Foreign Legion. It's written by a guy named Joel struthers and it just turns out that we are lucky enough to have Joel here here with us to discuss his book and his experiences as a legionnaire. So Joel Welcome to the show man. Thank you sir. It's an honor gentlemen. Thanks for coming down. It's how did you end up. Did you send me this book. How to disconnect necked I did I've I've watched you're familiar with your your history your name and the at the podcast and it was a hail Mary. I thought. Maybe it'll cinema book Maybe you take interest in the subject matter As you know marketing books these days it takes a lot of the efforts on the the ride themselves the author so aw that was Was it to get it to you and hopefully this would happen here. We are and again. I'm very appreciative. Yeah no it's a great book and I mean like I said opening up the French Foreign Legion has such a mystique about it that the opportunity to sit down with someone that did time and and served and fought with the French Foreign Legion seemed to me. You you are awesome opportunity so So yeah that's that's where it starts and speaking of where it starts. Let's get to. Let's get to it man. I let's get to your start to do. It does say the word right Appel uphill which basically clean means we in America. We caught quarters or like a stand to attention to rural. Yeah roll-call something like that but it doesn't it literally literally mean stomp your foot or something like that could also be used as call out You know double word Eating just yell Appel and then comes can you. You're accounted for God and that's what it's only used for check all right so let's get to you. Let's get to the book here a little bit. You say my parents met as students. At Canadian Forces Base Petawa that will head to Wa wa Ontario Canada and started dating in grade. Eleven as a son of a fighter pilot in the Canadian Air Force. I lived in ignorant lifestyle moving from one to one thousand nine hundred nine when my father retired is the commanding officer of four forty one tactical tactical fighter squadron. CF Cold Lake Alberta. We settled down in British Columbia Canada. So you grew up kind of military brat is what we call it. It's very bitter. Spent most of my time in Germany. The the the the widowmaker. Oh really yeah and then retired as a full colonel colonel story the CEO for one F.. Eighteens so yeah. It was every three years. The move Did you have any brothers or sisters said Solo operations that Lone Wolf probably explains a lot from earliest days. I remember being interested in everything in the military at school. I spent most of my time in classes drawing castles tanks airplanes. Is there anyone that didn't do that. That echo wait. You might be the other doctors and lawyers were the ones that Y- tanks. Yeah airplanes battleships still pretty good accused wars. Yeah I trust you can't i. I visited countless museums and castles played old trenches and bunkers all over Europe. Once I found a key in a tower of the walled city. Then Rothenberg in Bavaria. I was certain it would open the dungeon. My fascination with the military deepened with age so did my interest in sports my mother. It was very athletic. She enrolled me from an early age. Soccer basketball judo swimming and hockey. How much judo not enough? Good answer there can never beat up but were you. Were you serious about judo. No hockey took over pretty much early on. Oh that's right you're Canadian. It was just like hockey or nothing. She was also also at avid animal lover and I became one to aside from my mother. My role models were predominantly fighter pilots and soldiers. My Dad and his friends as well as his his friend as well as my friend's DAD's and my grandfather's even my hockey coaches were soldiers. The military was in my blood. And you actually actually. I skipped over it but you actually have deep military blood in your family and so that would seem like it seemed like you've got those genes for sure. I definitely in the somewhere after my first season playing AAA hockey I was invited. The Western Hockey League's Regina pats tryout camp but my parents didn't let attend because my school marks were too low. The fact that I had been expelled from high school for a week for fighting helped my cause. So you're I'm taking it. You weren't exactly the model of behavior as a child I don't know I mean I wasn't a bad kid about Seton but I think I hit an age as as we all do where I started to try to push barriers and figure out what else made of And being a hockey fan there were certain type players that I respected or wanted to emulate and I didn't necessarily have the the size of the Chin to do so so my game can change unfortunately for me but yeah. That's kind of the early onset to the Appel is a young man trying to figure out what he's capable of and who he is now. It's weird too that you had your dad was so would you say he was a full colonel. Colonel retired like some kids that grow up in that atmosphere they become kind of on the straight and narrow path. You know what I mean. And then some kids have a little bit of that rebellion in them. It sounds like you were a little bit more on the rebellion side. Yeah possibly but they they checked that And I think deep down I knew what was I was wrongly goes braise properly had good parents But as you do you check you check yourself and your if you're a you're made of and I figured out that that wasn't me I wasn't a bad ass per se certainly wasn't GonNa make the NHL with my my size and my the hands of Chin you go on a little bit about this. You know you talk about getting checked for fighting a lot from hockey games and then you say that. The trouble started when I was fresh out of Langley. Secondary School without hockey experience a loss of direction amid mix of immaturity. Trying to impress friends and girls and reacting to other idiots All took their toll. I was hang out the wrong crowd and these so-called friends were leading me nowhere the final twist in a downward spiral came when I was confronted by a A. R. C. Royal Canadian Mounted Police Special Investigation Officer revolver drawn. I was lucky I didn't end up in prison. What what what happened? Check I don't think the why matters for the what the why It was nothing you know. I'm sure machinations will flow. There's there's no it's not drug related. It's not anything but It was dumb enough that the police took interest in my my sociation with certain people and You know I wasn't. I wasn't charged or anything but it was. It was a good kick in the ass I experienced sitting down with my father who was visibly upset. at the fact that potentially I'd be going to jail ruin in your life and that Yeah that's straight seeing. That reaction was sobering. I guess we'd be the world and from there I took Took ownership and Do call this is. This is a big point. You say here. I realized that I needed to change and fast so I contacted the Canadian armed forces sources recruitment center in Vancouver. Unfortunately Canadian armed forces were no longer accepting applicants for regular force infantry positions. My only option was to join a Canadian reserve unit in it and hope to be at the front of the recruitment line when the regular forces started to expand. So I I mean you get to this point and this is man. It's so you're lucky you're lucky you're actually lucky that this guy drew down on you. You're lucky that you did something bad enough to to get you to a point where there you said this is not going to end well and not every kid gets that opportunity and it'd be nice if if a kid like listening to this right now can foresee that they're going to end up in that position and just okay. You know what I needed to change. I need to make a change right it now because I know men. The best thing that happened in my life was joining the military. I would have been a total loser I would have just ended up. Doing I was doing dumb stuff when I would've just continued down that path and I don't know if I had a moment in time like you did what I said. Okay I got to stop this but I definitely looked around at the people people I was hanging around with and said Yeah. This isn't GonNA end up. Well it'd be nice if kids that are fifteen sixteen seventeen seventeen eighteen nineteen years old instead of waiting for that moment to arrive where they realize that they're not as smart as they think they are and be the direction that they're heading is not going to end up well that they go. You know what I need to kind of change direction. Here and boy the military offers especially I mean. It's it's crazy to like like in Canada. You can't even join regular force infantry. I mean let's face in America. I'm not saying you can't be. They'll take anyone but if you WANNA be a grunt run in the army or the Marine Corps like there's a decent chance that you can do it fair and this keep in mind..
