This episode was released on Blue Monday. Apparently the most depressing day of the year!

Alex Hughes is determined to do something about that. In fact if you're listening to this on January 17th, once you've heard this episode head straight to @shifties on social media for his 24hr "Speak Up Liveathon" raising awareness for the importance of speaking up for mental health.

Alex is an entrepreneur who along with his own highly successful businesses now mentors and inspires others to launch their own businesses, but his journey was anything but straightforward.

Find out why he was written off by his school teachers at 14 and how, far from becoming the victim he was driven to find his purpose and prove those people wrong.

We also discover who his hero is, we blow the myth that is 'coachspiracy' and what the 90 Day Rule is all about.

The Scary Guy Podcast

The Scary Guy's sole mission is “The Total Elimination of Hate, Violence and Prejudice Worldwide.” 

These were the first words that Scary spoke when he began his mission in 1998. Since that day, Scary has worked with millions of people through Television, film, radio, social media and live shows around the world promoting peace through the teaching of Love and Acceptance of all people. His audience consists of both youth and adults on an individual, community and society level, unaware of how they are using negative energy to meet their needs.

Scary’s work identifies an enormous cultural and educational void in the upbringing of the World’s children. For years, nations have experienced the relentless growth of “The World’s Number One Social Disease; Hate, Violence, and Prejudice,” which Scary describes as an insidious disease, polarizing our youth and societies and precluding us from achieving the true potential of our common humanity.

The Scary Guy is a unique entity! He is a real force the “Live” person that a sizeable and growing segment of our youth today hunger for – someone to provide them with believable guidance in this current era of social polarization, brought on by hate, prejudice and spiraling “non-responsibility-accepting, no-accountability” conduct. His presence shocks people into an awed state of attention. His message is then delivered to a rapt and receptive audience.

For the first time, this message is being delivered in a dedicated podcast


The Scary Guy is an expert in determining the root causes of emotional experiences that manifest themselves throughout communication on an individual, group, and global scale.

He is unique in his capacity to reach audiences of all ages and backgrounds and his innovative programs are tailored for all age and education levels. Scary is a powerful motivational force, inspiring audiences to take pride in themselves, and join him in the reality of “Eliminating Hate, Violence and Prejudice Worldwide”.

Through this podcast, Scary will teach people to understand that they have the power to create change in their own world by taking full responsibility for all of their own behaviour in the form of words and actions as Energy.

The Scary Guy Podcast is co-hosted by Scary's Director of Operations, Gary Lee.

In each episode, Scary and Gary will discuss the relevant news and issues of the day, answer your questions, respond to your messages and they will meet and talk to the people around the world who are helping to make the world a better place.
