About this episode

The most appropriate name for this episode is “Rock ‘N Roll lifestyles.” There are four guests on this show, two of which who wandered into the room unexpectedly. It turned out they all had some incredible stories to tell about the wild lives they lived. I’d definitely like to have them back on in the future.

Roderik Faasen is a painter and a poet, Mickey Fentross is an entrepreneur. Together, they traveled through the Florida Panhandle with a yellow Ford Mustang and $20.000 in cash. Along the way, they passed through several rural towns, visited the largest nightclub in the world, and ended up getting threatened with a rifle for taking a leak on someone’s property.

Aad Bak, unexpected guest number one, is an entrepreneur and writer from Rotterdam, The Netherlands. He made his millions by being bringing office water-coolers to Europe back in the late 80s. He has lived a very wild, adventurous life after that and has spent time in jail in The Netherlands, Germany, Spain, Italy, The United States, and Mexico. Needless to say, he has some interesting stories to tell about those experiences. He has written a book about his life, which is currently being translated into English.

Amerildo de Krijger, unexpected guest number two, is a Dutch entrepreneur, rapper, and producer from Rotterdam. He has performed at several huge festivals and in some of the biggest venues in the country. His tales of debauchery and out-of-control partying rival those of Motley Crue and Guns ‘N Roses. He took things far enough to get banned from venues as a performer. 

This episode was a blast to record and definitely ranks as one of the wildest ones so far. Enjoy!
