DREW’S PILGRIMAGE PREPARATION!
The Camino De SantiagoThis October 2016 (right after his 1st grandchild is born) Drew will be heading out on The Camino De Santiago. For well over a thousand years, millions of pilgrims have walked The Way of St James - the most popular route being almost 800KM's. (Beginning in France, over the Pyrenees Mountains, across Northern Spain to the Atlantic) And just to make things interesting, Drew will be doing the entire trail in a vow of silence. Along The Way he’ll be writing about his experiences interacting with other pilgrims, without being able to speak, and posting on The Drew Marshall Show Facebook Page. The plan is to finish the Camino on his 50th birthday on November 30th. Every Saturday in July (the last month of Season 13) Drew will be interviewing a variety of “Camino Gurus” in order to prepare for his upcoming “bucket list” experience.

Robert Ward — Author of All The Good Pilgrims: Tales of the Camino de SantiagoFrom his first journey along the Camino de Santiago, Robert Ward fell in love with the landscape, history, art and romance of this old pilgrimage path. Above all, he fell in love with the people of the Camino, both the welcoming Spaniards and the steadfast pilgrims who come from all over the world to discover what it means to travel five hundred miles, one step at a time. In All the Good Pilgrims, Ward returns for a fifth trip along the Camino, sharing the way with a Canterbury Tales cast of characters – a wizard from Brazil, a Bavarian Buddha, a repentant French legionnaire, a hard-drinking Quixote in a wheelchair, Our Lady of the Bundle Buggy, Spice Pilgrims and Templars, and Saint James himself in the guise of a sturdy Dutchman. Ward thinks he knows what he’s getting into, but each day brings new lessons, encounters, questions, gifts and challenges, reminding him once again that it isn’t the pilgrim who walks the Camino – it’s the Camino that walks the pilgrim. *Robert Ward is a writer and traveller with a special interest in pilgrimages. He is also the author of Virgin Trails, an agnostic’s guide to the history and worship of the Virgin Mary. Robert’s freelance travel articles have appeared in newspapers including The Globe and Mail, The LA Times and The Chicago Tribune.
Best of Journey ReplayWithout question, TDMS Journey segments have been the most popular with our listeners over the last 13 years. Throughout the last month of Season 13, Drew will replay some of the most powerful personal stories of overcomers you will ever hear.
THIS WEEK: Gabrielle Lavallee
(Originally Aired September 20, 2014)
Gabrielle was a member of The Ant Hill Kids, a cult led by Roch Theriault and was forced to endure humiliating torture for years. She was made to smear her face with the excrement that another disciple evacuated on the floor while he was being beaten up. After that, Thériault smashed her nose against the door and ripped her skull open with the door handle. Members of the cult had their pubic hair ripped out, their genitals crushed, some castrated, skulls balded by the handful, black eyes, lacerations, broken ribs, forced enemas, flogging, their vaginal areas burned with a blowtorch, scaldings, and other atrocities we can't mention. Gabrielle assisted Thériault when he decided to operate on a member. He opened her abdomen, cut out a piece of her he deemed unhealthy, then asked his right-hand man to stitch it all up with a knitting needle. After that, the poor girl, who had to endure this hellish operation un-sedated, was commanded to stand up and walk without complaining. The next day this woman was very close to death, but Thériault demanded that she get up as usual. Then, realizing that she actually wasn't well, he made her swallow six eggs, put a mushroom and saliva plaster on the wound, made her take a very hot bath followed by an icy cold one. After all that, he was surprised when she died. The following night, he demanded that the remains be stretched out naked on his bed, and he spent the night alone with her. One night, Gabrielle tried to escape but was caught. She was brought back to the isolated commune, where Thériault pinned her hand to a wooden table with a hunting knife, removed one of her fingers with wire cutters, then amputated her entire arm. Drew was able to track down Gabrielle and she agreed, with some reluctance, to a rare interview in order to clarify exactly what happened during her time in one of Canada's most brutal cults. *Make sure you go to our website and listen to Part 2 of Gabrielle’s unbelievable story (Originally Aired October 4, 2014)

Everything You’ve Always Wanted To Say To Drew But Haven’t!
Today is the last show of Season 13. And since this will be Drew’s last live show until January 2017, we thought it might be time for us to open the phone lines and invite our listeners to call and offer him some advice or a good stern talking to before he heads out on his sabbatical (Aug - Dec) and his 800 KM silent pilgrimage on The Camino de Santiago. Whether you’re a long time listener or relatively new to the insanity that is Drew Marshall, give us a call on 877-569-1250.

Typically YOU WIN ABSOLUTELY NOTHING (hence the “Useless”) but every July we clean out Drew's Tickle Trunk! (And that TV reference is from… ?)
