About Chris Scott:

By the time I was a teenager I had gotten a bit rebellious. At 17 I ran away to join the Marine Corps. I was a bit of what you might call a disgruntled teenager. It’s not that I was bad I would say I was more like aggressive. And the Marine Corps was a perfect fit. And, in a lot of ways maybe it was my destiny. Because both my parents were Marines and I was born in Beaufort South Carolina which is where Marine Corps boot camp, Paris Island is located. So in a lot of ways I went back to my roots and I still consider myself a bit of a Good Ole Boy. What I mean by that is common sense thinking, plain talk and telling it like it is. I try to bring some of that to the show.

​While most other podcasts are resorting to foul language, name calling and, even spreading rumors I’ve resisted all that. So, I try to be nice but sometimes when people don’t make sense – IT’S HARD. That’s kind of the point of the show – common sense. I laugh at some of the stuff I see and hear because, as us good ole boys sometimes say, “that just don’t make sense”.

​When I came home from the Marine Corps I was just 20 years old. I was a lean, mean, combat veteran and to say the aggressiveness of my teen years had reached a new level would be an understatement.

​I was a serious young man, very serious and approached everything that way. I was anxious to have a successful career in real estate development. I tried some college for a few semesters but I just couldn’t fit in. The kids seemed so immature to me and I was so serious that their carrying on and lack of discipline bothered me. But I was driven, very driven and I worked hard. It was during this time I was influenced by another voice.
