Back with special guest Chris (Rainman) Rain, this was the 2nd podcast we recorded back in 2016 and we continue the trend of embarrassing stories! In this episode we discuss how we've had some very different experiences with Asian cuisine, Matt Damon whitewashing, what guys do when they have crushes vs. what girls do, Jesse's experience with stalking his crush, and how MJ managed to screw up even the most simplest of stalking tasks! Not only is this episode utterly hilarious but it starts to give you a great insight into the idiots we are. We had a lot of fun recording this so we hope you enjoy it! And be sure subscribe and check out our first episode before listening to this as there's a whole bunch of references to the stories we tell in our first episode too! Enjoy!

01 - The Story That Could Ruin Chris Forever
Welcome the first ever episode of Hashtag Actors Life! We recorded the first four episodes back in 2016 with Actor, Cinematographer and very dear friend Chris Rain as our special guest. In this episode we have so much fun and go over a range of topics including Chris's family Xmas gift gone horribly wrong, Game of Thrones (No spoilers), being addicted to Bold and the Beautiful, what its like to live on Neighbours Ramsay st, Miss America dropping the N word, and a Hashtag Actors Life exclusive... Chris C tells us the story of the most embarrassing thing thats ever happened to him. And trust us, the releasing of this story could very well be the end of his career and social life. ​Follow us at - Instagram -  @jessedingo @chris_charterboat @mj_staana
