This week’s guest is Christophe Zajac-Denek. Christophe worked as a TV producer while touring in a rock band, he’s a drummer, an actor and stuntman, a surfer, a journalist, a podcaster, and public speaker. He’s also 4’4” tall and has a rare form of dwarfism. Christophe hosts an amazing podcast entitled “I’m Kind of a Big Deal” in which he interviews amazing little people doing really cool things. From actors to professional surfboarders, he learns about their lives, their professions and has a good laugh with every one. He’s also done several shows describing the surgeries he’s had to endure and how grateful he is to his parents for having them done.
We talked about how to stand when talking to little people, how people stare at little people, his surgeries, little people in acting, and pedal extenders so he can drive. We laughed a lot but the conversation gets deep and introspective as well. I had a blast and I think Christophe did too.
