EPSE1: What Really Happened in Vegas During #NMX14 w/ Ben Adam-Smith (@BenAdamSmith)

This is a Special Edition episode of the Empowered Podcast! My friend Ben Adam-Smith shares his post New Media Expo story.

After the largest media conference in the country, if not the world, Ben Adam-Smith went missing. For the next 48 hours, friends, family and conference attendees were trying to find him while praying for his safety.

Nudity, Psychics, Security Guards, a mental hospital and a stuffed giraffe come together for a truth that's stranger than fiction.

  • Wow! I never knew Ben until several friends from the online world reported him missing. Great to hear it ended well!

    • Me too! I was so worried about him. Thanks for listening and taking the time to comment.

  • This is the first time I’m hearing about this. I was down and out for a bit after NMX thanks to the flu so I wasn’t on social media much. This is crazy! I remember talking to Ben a couple times over that weekend and my husband and I even gave him a ride back to the hotel after the meetup on Sunday night. So glad to hear everything turned out okay. Ellory, thanks for having him on your show to share his story.

    • Melissa, I think you’re about the 30th person I’ve heard about who got the flu!

      I really enjoyed meeting you and your husband at the Hard Rock! You guys really made NMX special for me.

      I’m glad I could share Ben’s story with everyone and I’m very grateful he came out of this healthy.

      Thanks for reading/listening and commenting Melissa! You’re awesome!

    My partner and I first met Ben at Chris Ducker’s session (Ben was my partner for the exercises Chris had us do). I was instantly drawn to his enthusiasm for the experience we were all sharing at NMX. Ben, I’m sorry this happened to you but I can definitely understand. I’m glad I had the opportunity to meet you and I’m so relieved you’re safe and back on track!

    Thanks, Ellory, for offering Ben the chance to tel his story.

    Peace & Veggies,

    Larissa
