S02E07 Life Deck - Raf Davis & JP Bacallan
Sup, LDS fam? On this episode of Life Deck, I take some time off the usual conversations you're used to hearing with my boys Raf Davis and JP Bacallan. This is the most fun episode I've ever had by far, just because I'm really close to these two and right from the start, you'll already hear us laughing. I've known Raf since he was 15 years old and more known for his insane Yo-yo tricks that made him famous. JP is someone who I really believe is talented and one of the best male RnB singers out there right now. As usual, there's plenty of gems in this episode as I give these two boys who I see as my little brothers, plenty of sound advice. Take note that this episode was recorded around August 2019, before these 2 blew up the music scene, and for good reason.  I hope you guys find value in listening to this episode as always and thank you in advance for subscribing/sharing/engaging at instagram.com/lifedeckshow and on fb. I appreciate you all! Have a great weekend!  #LifeDeck  @LifeDeckShow  @AntonioAguirre.Jr

S02E03 Life Deck - Ronnie De Vera of Shoe Game Manila/Manila Sneaker Expo
Hey what's up Life Deck Nation! Really ecstatic to be sharing with you all this conversation I had with a good friend of mine in the shoe game, Ronnie De Vera. The amount of respect between the two of us is just at a high level that I truly enjoyed listening to this episode that I had to listen to it end to end where I was just smiling and laughing most of the time. So much knowledge and skill that a small business operator or a start-up business person can get from this one, including how it is in the events game. Ronnie and I share the same passion when it comes to sneakers and putting up events that we understand the struggle that goes along with the rewards of what we do. It's a tough business most definitely, but it is what we love and truly care about.  If you are a sneaker fan and want to know the business side of it, I highly recommend that you listen to this episode from start to finish because it's going to be well worth it. Let me know in the comments section what you guys think of the episode and tell your other friends as well. Your shares are this Podcast's lifeline.

S02E02 Life Deck - Nick Hernandez of Hydro Manila/Midas Music
Hey everyone! For this episode of Life Deck, I'm having a conversation with one of the founders of Hydro Manila and Midas Music, Nick Hernandez. Nick and I go way back, around 2007 as far as I can remember from our days as being club promoters, and seeing him being successful at what he does now is truly remarkable. One thing I can tell you is that to never doubt the crazy ideas this man has. I did one before, and I'm still kicking myself in the butt for not buying in to one of those ideas he pitched to me before. Must be the alcohol thinking for me back then. Listen to the entire podcast episode and let me know what you think by dropping comments on our Instagram page @lifedeckshow ayt? Cheers!  #LifeDeckShow

S01E10 Life Deck - Douglas Brocklehurst of TMP
On this episode of Life Deck, I get to share an intimate conversation with Douglas Brocklehurst. This one is very special to me just because I’ve witnessed the growth and maturity of Douglas from being a former intern of mine back when I was doing Sole Slam events to today where he produces a wealth of events related to the culture community. I’m very proud of the path that he’s taken to right now and the vision that he has combined with the work ethic that he resonates is very commendable. He’s one of the type of people you would want to succeed in life just because his intentions are as real as it gets. This is episode 10 of 10 for Season 1 of the Life Deck Show.
