episode 3: Tim R McAdams Pt 1: Salesman to Stuntman, POC in Stunts, & Being Set On Fire

Introducing: Tim R McAdams. Tim is a business consultant, enrichment speaker, and professional action stuntman. When he isn’t behind a podium, he’s on-set for productions such as Black Panther, Avengers Infinity War, Avengers Endgame, and Fast & Furious 7 as well as TV shows such as The Wire, The Walking Dead, Oz, Atlanta, and Black Lightning. In this episode, we discuss how Tim grew from theater kid to sales associate to speaker - consultant - stuntman. Tim also talks about his work as a director for the Stunt POC Directory, details how Atlanta became the “Hollywood of the South,” and explains exactly what a “ratchet” is. In part 2, we go in depth on his experience losing 25 lbs in 3 weeks, getting beat up on The Wire, being a part of entertainment history with HBO’s Oz, and going pantsless in front of a busy street for Donald Glover’s Atlanta series. Then, Tim describes his experience working on Marvel film sets, specifically the incredible VFX magic and the legacy of Chadwick Boseman.
