Bree Bree can be a bit of a snob when it comes to these things. So we see like every year for the last few years, she'll get all the different fancy Hot Cross Buns from different Melbourne bakeries and they do a thing at work with a blind taste test and ship or let's cap off a talk have any cows directing you had today are today and it wasn't even like good cows that like I just feel a bit sick probably
maybe not maybe yeah and I see I basically I ate half a wheel of brie cheese which is probably that which means dead cow and that was because I'd had you know like you just ate so much sweet stuff yeah oh I just need something savory now like my mouth almost feels like a binge drinking petrol it's just like real like synthetic and well
because I sugar

Yes So what was it hours of the morning here right now?
Yeah No it's fucking delicious my head crime to put cream on first or jam first I put jam on first came on second I think it's meant to be more than the other
way I do my you brought
that one here anymore about you Jason crane and have any opinions we bought our first Airbnb for a trip
shade like you've never booked an Airbnb I haven't done it much they change like in Australia it's a bit different way so why is this so I'm going to London yeah
both what's the first Airbnb you ever did?
That's a good question maybe on the Gold Coast
fact my I've only done a few Gold Coast when
four years ago I sorry hang on Europe I've had a mental blank you can check your bloody eBay bacon but I've stayed in one in Europe we saved mine in Italy stayed in one in the Gold Coast
what was the Italy one bite because we're just looking at Italy at the moment
it is a new it's a it's completely Have you doing this for years ago yeah different ball game now they'd be set up they like houses that aren't used for anything other than a microsecond decent coin yeah and so we like this girl came in medicine she she was off having dinner somewhere else and then came in source and gave us this key and show the scene it was just like lifeless apartment but in a good spot and shape yeah and so she gave us the you know logins or whatever it was we'd it's not it's just a hotel on that they just hotel well that's
what be Mac was talking about living in Docklands how set up and I know we've done this when we went to like Anglesey or something where we just old lawn where you just one person will have 15 houses and they literally just like middle men. Men. Nice. Yeah, yeah. No. Just say yeah, they'll just say hi.
You know, put all the fucking business card stuff though. Look after everything. I just take little sneaky. Got it. Neil. First one.
Okay. So how you get this. We flew in at 11pm to New York, New York. you and a friend of ours. Lady if she was staying with us. And so she flew in, like on a material a flight. So I pm or something like that. So she was out of the airport at 8pm. She went to pick up the K guide is a fucking dodgy. We were trying to pull the dodgy a little bit that we were having more people than what we said. So he says, Well, it was a two bedroom. We said we're having two of us. Yeah, I just didn't even I didn't even know she was going to die or not. She ended up staying got the earlier so I said can you go pick up the cake? Yeah, he grills us. Are you staying there? And she was Yeah, she didn't play along. I don't think I even thought I had the smarts at that point to go. Don't say just say that for us. She had a bag with us. The fact that may go to the ATM pull out to 50. Yeah, additional cash money to give him because she was dying. So it did increase the price. But he gave us the and it all worked out. But you won't do it. Man. You fact it. But the
first one that I did. I haven't used it that much. Since I've only used it three times on my account. And then last time we used it. I got prey to use hers. Because you want to sort of build these things. Almost like fracking credit scores, right? You want about Yeah, you want to build up your own fucking account so that if you ever want to travel, you've got some experience plus I was doing like referral code February. So if we got both got 25 bucks off but no mind 2012
January 2012 Macworld, San Francisco did the whole Uber did the whole fucking Airbnb thing. It was amazing. The guy that I was staying with worked at Pixar invited me to Pixar gave me a tour of the place. Amazing. Yeah,
just a really good experience. I would he was CEO and
Pixar now. Yeah, yeah.
Disney. Yeah. So it's pretty, pretty fucking cool. So that was a good because literally, I was like, hey, I've got
an Amazon package. I want to get a sense, but Geez. I feel like how about this. This just shows you how I like doing things like going above and beyond. Like, I feel like this. Oh, I feel like I'm getting less and less like this, but just doing overgenerous things. Yeah.
He gave me a to like I got something delivered via Amazon and he said I'll just get sent to my office and you can come to Pixar and pick it up blah blah. Get the tour and remember fact. Yes. Yeah. I remember
what I did. Um,
we were talking about this as 2012 so you know Kindle sailing you but we're talking about the Kindle. And he's like I yeah, yeah. I don't have one like a he. They're awesome art. So thing. I bought him if I can keep boy, my Kindle. And I remember would have been like $129 or something. But got sent to his office as a thank you.
So it's nice. Not it's above and beyond. And they said no. To the total bit more. It's a bit over the top. You don't fucking stay crown towers or you know, even just the Crowne Plaza? Yeah and they give the receptionist an iPad, but what do you do about it? What do you do with tipping and stuff in what
well in Australia, some of the better restaurants I tip
a good restaurants don't tip it other restaurants. Well,
so for instance, you went to fuck. You could have given a great tip the other night when you went with Amy to what was a place called Donovan. Stonegate. It was a fire it was a $407 bill. How much
did you tip we gave them in total 500. So it wasn't a great amount. But these were,
what was it? 70, 8090
hundred 30 bacteria. That way, these people earning 30 bucks now. Yeah. And they were in fucking great conditions in really well, like it's a male. Yeah.
I'm curious as to what the, you know what the deal is, with tipping in Australia in the sense of like,
what did I do with that money? Because they're already getting they're already getting paid. Okay. If I
worked at all the tips got calculated and split was great. And you just get it as a bit of cash. Yeah, it was all cash. Okay. But is Yeah, so it's, I guess it's different if it comes in through a
through what a call that electronic trading Oh, yeah. Tapping guy, whatever. But it's, it's all so there's not. I don't think there's a set thing it's like all restaurants will do it. So I'm just take it and pay their staff better. So it's just really yeah. And so
fact that that doesn't seem like
So what you're saying is, some companies will just keep the tips. Yeah,
because it's just a part of the the, it depends if it's like a tip on the top. Yeah. How do you keep track of it? Right. It's actually hot
was like, how about this
hanging out with some American mates last week? Had a good had a good cafe experience. Get took a fucking
20 bucks. No, just like, gave it to the waitress as well. And the shield of pocket. Yeah, and that's it. And that's probably when you're looking at this most easy out there, and I'm coming to your house. back the muscles.
Adolfo? Yeah. No, it's okay. If they're outside for now. But that is like being on the water. Like I love having the the door open. It's called a fly screen mate. Yeah. But fracking rental property. You don't want to be doing that shit. Well, you asked them to do it. So Airbnb going back to this for a sec. You've been a host. Yes. Yeah.
We how it has your writing
top notch. It's not my account super host yet or not. And I've met so we have to do a lot to be said. We got a key put on like a lock put on our main door. So what we'd end up doing is just staying in staying in there or going away. And someone rent a second bedroom. Yeah. And we would lock the main bedroom and move everything from the second bedroom that was worth keeping or from the main area and you're being dodgy counts, because you were late. You're just leasing. Yeah. And you just supplies? Yeah. Did you ever did your landlord now or not anybody. We had a cheese board that was given to us for our wedding broken, and we just pulled it out. It was like one that had like, Ward on one side marble and the other. We pulled it out from the cupboard. And then the other, like, half of the fucking marble off. They someone who we had brokered and put it back in, in the same spot. We like you'd know if I can broke that. Right? And there was this German little couple that were here this little is this kid was trying to be a fucking wolf wolf. Will we get a friend you're always doing shit, like getting a flower, like just doing all this weird stuff in front of us, like, super romantic. And he and I could hardly speak English, right? And she came home and she had a bunch of flat. The girl had a bunch of flowers in our hands. And we have, I mean, I have this joke now. Because I think we said, Oh, Oh, nice flowers. And she said, my flowers. And
I mean, I got my flowers. She was like, it was like, she was a bit it came across, like, she was like, No, these are my flowers. You know, like, Oh, nice flowered my flowers like that will give him to us. Yeah. And so I, when I have this thing, we just say, my flowers.
How many? How many people have you had stay at your place
already? And we've had 15 total 15 different the money
how much money would you make on a given size, the tax department
listening or you find now then maybe three, four grand out of the whole lot. And the whole lot one of one of the girls, we had two, these two girls that came from California awesome. 20 or 21, one of them, ended up doing an internship with tribe Julian's company, and so we hooked her up with that. And we had some really fucking awesome dinners with a few of them. Like, yeah, because most of them young. Yeah. And, and yeah, we loved it, it was
you don't do that anymore. Because it seems
like community again, the thing is, it's a time of your life that you want to do that if we had if I had a bola house Yeah, with a separate area.
Why paint thinking about it, even
I always do this. And I've, I was just saying to Bray today, or like 10 tonight. I'm like, I have to fucking settle down on the dreaming because I've been thinking about like, without, without travels, and all that sort of shit. I'm already thinking about after, like, once we get back from a trip. And I'm thinking like, you know what, I think it would be good to like, buy eventually. Like, we haven't really had buying a place on the ride. Yeah, but only recently, we've just like, just in the last few days have been thinking maybe, maybe it would be not like, it would be nice to to own a place we've been able to sit this goal of like, why is he on the trip? In fact, I've like we put our mind to it. We've been able to save and now it's like, okay, maybe we should like be saving for other stuff.
Or with the rent you pay. Yeah, you could have a big one bedroom apartment. Yeah, if you're trying to be minimalists. Well you could have a nice one bedroom that could be an investment property when you decide to move out for the rent up yeah
well see Molly's yeah I was even thinking like but like getting something that's a tiny bit bigger having Airbnb type guests or having a space senior be cool to have a space that's sort of in nature where I could work from to like one of the things that I really value with
where I'm thinking all this stuff is going with sort of deep work and focusing on single projects and things like that is having a kick ass room that has like speakers so you can fucking like play that you know when we're editing at the moment we can use headphones it's all very insular about like setting up like a proper like Naka and crazy but just like a nice fact. And the iMac or whatever it is some speakers standing desk and you just like working on a single project. no distractions. Utah you have every home out in the forest. You know what? Log Cabin
Yeah, 700 grand Yeah, that's what you need. Yeah, so you get to spend the site like to work from far out you'll spend the same as you would to get a one bedroom in the city. What do you think your dream what where do you think you'll end up in my god I want to ask city
and a place down
the city as in central
somewhere within Melbourne. Okay. All living in Sydney in this in the central area. Yeah, and then having a coastal home. Yeah, which one do you reckon you'll buy first? Well I think you'd buy the personally by the one that you'd live in first yeah by the one that is most it will you spend my seat time I guess it's
a conversation for the accountants and all that sort of thing to work out what actually makes sense but what i've i've come down to reality and said I can just gonna focus on my fucking trip rather than I'm already like fact when we get back let's do because we're getting rid of this place and all that sort of thing. We have all these options. So psycho maybe just fucking looking around. You know, as he said, I profile is Joe that's not why
he only because you You're always banging on about not only Ah,
well, I think I don't know why. Like, I think it's, um, like, as you start to strip back and shoes, then it's like, Okay, well, I do do I do like the idea of having somewhere. And then
I think that what I've done is I've always attached having something as being like, locked into that location. But I do like the idea of having something that serves us for like five years, where we are staying there all the time. And then being like, okay, we now have this place that we can always go back to can be a base and then bringing it being able to work on projects where sort of Producer Director relationship where we're working on stuff and then we'll travel to a project and then come back and spend three months editing and doing all that I think you meet somewhere in the middle where it's over thought under thought and then just committing to something Yeah, and making changes along the way Yeah,
I think it's never is tactical is why you
can't write because it's it's the same because even if you think about it's like okay well we still know if I can save all the cash that we're going to need which is however long that to kind of take yeah
yeah, I was my it's I think it's always like seeing what you don't have. Yeah, I was lying in bed on Saturday morning, Sunday Saturday morning at my mates beach house. his grandfather's he is just fucking literally look out the window or he sees ocean Yeah, you see if you stand up you'll see a bit of trees on the cliff and out over the ocean
but then there's a Great Ocean Road below the tray so it's it's amazing there's not a great deal of views there that you literally can't see any road yeah you just see trees and water and it's the sound
like is it inspiring or is it disheartening?
He's grandfather's had it in the family food 50 years so like $1,000 they bought it for Yeah, it for what they bought would be with $5 million today. Yeah, that's disheartening that the the income doesn't match the property price like it used to so it's like not even comparable you know, by any margin. So that's disheartening. What I like about it is I know that that's what I love like for me I've I've been going down to loan this place and Victoria for years just fucking thinking to myself and I've always had friends that families have had beach houses and most of them are all wealthy their families wealthy to have a beach house down there and it's always put that in my mind. It's like fact, this is what I want I it by the water. It's, it's relaxing, it's busy at some points. There's social life, but there's also like the escapism that you can have in your little confines. But I so that's what you got to have these fucking visions. Are you gonna have these dreams? appellations?
Yeah otherwise you
go fucking mad. Yeah,
I mean, I live in a tiny little two bedroom apartment with three of us. But I even look at like I was doing all the fucking admin shish on the long weekend logging into fucking mind of and paying tax and checking out my super and I just even me looking at my superannuation. So um I don't know I think I caught something else in the States was it called the for you did one one for one K is called 401k basically the view fucking money when you retire and the savings I just I can never think like I get a bit sad because I'm like oh man if if I have a lot of money in it. Like I'm not going to be able to access that until I'm like what 55 or 60 and I get like a bit backing down on like oh man like we're gonna get old and we gonna fucking die Do you get like it? How do you how do you feel about like age and death and all that sort of stuff here I haven't thought about it too much fact nothing doesn't more to me than looking at my super because it's just like are you want me to save for I'm just like, What the fuck is going to be happening at this time? It's
it's an amazing incentive that a strike that the Australian Government in place because what would happen if they didn't no one would save shit right? Because these fucking leeches on the government I mean they're already yeah some that well they
doing they don't have choosing to fucking do are they doing it out of selfish reasons to because they just don't have the fucking capacity to provide. I had
the conversation with my friend on the weekend we'll talk about super and self managed super funds where it gets fucking confusing. Yeah and and even the Barefoot investor doesn't suggest anyone have a self managed super phone with the amount of fucking work that needs to go into unless you've
got like a bunch of cash and you're fucking wanting to optimize to the mouse it's not worth it
my friend said they self managed super funds unless you've got a lot of money it doesn't they don't they're not useful yeah and so that his point was around you're gonna have a lot of money for super fun to to Super optimize it to the to make more money out of it. Well, some people I know will do things like they'll have their managed super fund will be say the self managed super fund will be the lease Oh although own say their office where the company leases and so they can do all these back in like there is some ways of optimizing your superannuation to buy property now yeah
and and like it's all bit confusing and the other thing too is you can use your super for
this is all fucking not financial vascular you have no fucking idea but the I believe that you can use it for financial advisors and stuff which I think's a little bit dodge in this sorry financial advisors so I had a financial advisor chat to me and basically say hey like you don't even have to fucking pay anything up we just we can tap into super I'm like well how do you
feel is affecting business aren't having some racket like that yeah and I know that they probably think that they're offering value but they're also cheap like eating into money that you will not feel like you're spending yeah they're super funds and some of those
incentives to buy homes and stuff you using you you super as a down payment for the fucking you know mortgage or whatever it is right they are they are all in some way benefiting the person who has that business yeah I always think about that like who's it Who's Who is this? Who's Who
you need another cookie Can I yeah, who
is finished my sentence the dog now this guy
just something worse? It's
Dad I think well where I was gonna say is just have like, I
I just gets it and I just get sad when I get sad when I look at look at how many houses there right? Yeah, look, look at how many like fancy car brain. I stayed at Jackalope on the weekend. Right. Really. So fancy hotel was gifted to us by friend. And the
every fucking car is like a Porsche. I had a guy know who I bumped into. has a Tesla. He works at Amazon. Sick of great dude. And yeah, but just all these fucking Primo cars. And it's just like, same in law. I'm here. My fucking I 30.
I don't know. But it's not even that. I value those things. Yes. But there is those moments where I'm like,
I don't know. I feel
Yeah, tonight. It's a weird feeling. I've just feel like man will go such a long way to go. Or we're just a speck in this. Like, we've got no fucking financial influence or any influence in this fucking world. though. I have said this a couple of times this week. End of that I've done and JJ. Yeah.
Not the squid un of diving JJ. Where he gets on to some sort of saying or some great little metaphor that he just turns out a couple of times in mind this week has been I guess
yeah. Go just like fucking
the war the grass that you want
something about watering? grass.
Man, what are your I brush and who I am now is not who I need to be. To get to where I want to go? Yeah. Yeah. Like that. Yeah. Like, and so my thinking around that is with you saying this. Yeah. And that guy that's talking about round no financial influence, like, look at these other people. That's not the dude who becomes a baller with Rolls Royce. Not that you want that. Yeah. But what that means is that someone who has success or financial success as a business or does something that has generated money and so for you, and I think it's like these little discuss these little conversations because we don't do it right. I think that the thing is that we,
we've gone so far, I think from where we should have been based on the positioning in our life, you know, like you leaving school early, or from where I grew up, or whatever it is that we have, we really think about the fact that like, anything is like, not against against this is completely the wrong word, because we're like, white dudes doing okay, but we were not at the same positioning as a lot of other people. And we've never seen that as a barrier. But I think you just have some moments where you look around and you're like, I don't feel like I belong here. Or I feel like all these people are a bit different to me it's like even Bray with some of her jobs like she all she's at previous roles. She's like, she's the only person in her whole team that went to a public school everyone went to privates private schools. So, ya know, it's interesting. It's, um, I mean, like, we are responsible for where we are right yeah,
you can get jealous looking at other people or like,
you know, you look at kids that I went to school with some pretty successful man a lot of money when guys fucking writing albums with Robbie Williams crazy. Like, and, and also these things can make you feel shit or inspire you, you know, because they levels of success for someone else, and not necessarily your own. But you can get trapped in looking at someone else's success and feeling like that fact. Oh, I wish I had that. But you don't even want that you're not that person. You know that what you're doing doesn't even that's not even the angle? Well, I think that to be one of the things that I think we need to be able to, to get to that point is to be really targeted in what we want. And bang, like, fucking super super focused. And I think that that's always the
that can be the challenge because it's always going it's always going to change but it's even breeze being reading Hillary Clinton's Biography at the moment. I bet you that's a blog. Yeah, well, she's just saying how like, it's so interesting hearing her eyes would like her self talk, right? Or talk around like, Oh, you know, going to Trump's inauguration and people telling her don't go and all that sort of thing and and just how regular the sorts of conversation she has about us to herself internally and we are all having those conversations I guess it's our it's our way of dealing with it or how we how we frame situations can make a big difference because something that someone could perceive as bad could be really good like getting out of your comfort zone some people really fucking scary don't want to do it won't go towards it where some people love that of going into a situation getting a bit fucking jazzed about it
let's just finish off with a bit of April Fools yeah does everything a few things going on
yeah Lulu lemon did a dumb one
they didn't know that they did a they did a rock that was meant to be like a it was really well produced it was like this this sort of stone looking rock thing that
they were sort of pitching has like the Google Home Amazon Alexa type of thing to be mindful but the thing is that they have you know you've we've we've had a bit of an inside look having worked with some of their ambassadors on some projects and they're fucking like people like into it right they fucking love Lululemon they get right into it and the thing is that you look at the comments and people like hi Where do I buy this? Nah it's like that the midst of missed the tone of their audience being just fucking just a little bit like there is a bit of a cult vibe and went out on the full and so yeah they're just like no you can't you can't do this to community because they're all fucking when you drinking the Kool Aid products then it just made like I feel like it's yeah it may be a little bit sort of uncomfortable and then oz bag and changed all their fucking font but to Chinese characters and said that they were bought by a Chinese company or something right yeah it was fucking racist
and pasa nine that's not funny Did you sit in liked it yet? virgin wood Branson came out there were saying that there's going to be spinning classes on one of the
probably some of these things are good ideas. They do. I know they did one virgin did one a couple of years ago where they'll like they'll having a kid section on applying awesome where they have like backing slides and shit like that. And parents, obviously, like this is the best thing ever. Like, ooh, early jokey. We're still chicken
hot. paga does something funny about April fools? We're at CES like we're gonna form. Yeah, I've got an idea, Jeff, Let's fall the customers into that we actually care about them. And let's do something that they would absolutely love it and then we'll sign off for like, it's a bit of a Should I go pro did when you say now. So it starts out it's almost the sound of what you'd think a Lulu lemon Ambassador would sound like spiritual and this kind of stuff. And so
it's like, you know how there's footage of like a girl dragging the guy's hand and the guys I've done it before, it kind of looks kind of cool. So this is scale who's like reciting some script in its voiceover and her just sort of going around the world. Paris like grace with this hand, and then the final shot. So I was totally fooled up until the final bit, and then she pulls the hand and it's like the cameras on this fake hand. And the saying like it was it a GoPro Li is hashtag GoPro Li and it's this hand. It was quite funny. I liked it. I liked it. But the one that I am, ah, Google,
whereas willing, and I Google Google Maps, Google had this thing. It was like we and I hope I'm right on saying this. I send it to myself. Just you. Can you please just confirm that this is from actual Google and not somewhere else? And I'll tell the story. Okay. Hang on a second. So
hang on to about your timing. Yeah, it is. So here we go. Go came out and said that they have redesigned Google for Australia and change. They've changed Google. two gigs. Good skills. Yeah. And so
I just I just got out of atoms. All right. Fucking timing
Well, now, I was just like
you thought you're on your feet. Looking through your friends. Okay. So let me just say that this is actually yeah, that's on Google. Right. That's on their actual
Google. Yeah, Google down under Yeah. Is that Australia? So yeah, that's fine. Google in Australia to good good dude. He's the problem Josh Yeah, he didn't fucking party. You know, 18 to 19. Yeah,
I know you're trying to you're trying to squeeze this story because it's, I would say Google and you're saying goodbye because it works better. Is that a drug or something or sticking something around gulags is is at least well gee Oh Jesus politics wasn't mine
Can't you just say so let me just reading the comments now I wanted to I wanted to tell you a comment
anyway basically goes is a term for ecstasy tablets in Australia, right? It's slang for and I just get slammed in their fracking really in the comments section by people just going. I think
you don't fucking realize what the term gulags means in all the math just a bunch of geeks getting them this is
a couple a couple of other ones that I I did enjoy quad locked it a funny one I Oh, they released it a couple of days early they did like their own cryptocurrency that they were doing which was sort of funny and did a whole video which was like just fucking real like homemade funny shit but interestingly with quad lock when they were just the open a case so before quite lucky can come out called like a phone cases for iPhones and and and the biggest probably case for phone mounting to bikes in there was actually stays on yeah it's a really good product and a client and friends but I did their first Kickstarter video but before that they
Yeah, we did a video where we they had this case that they were doing called the holder case, h o LD, which was an iPhone case that you use as a wallet and you would hold cash in it. And so what we did the April Fool's is we made a video we rebranded it to play a case PL a ya, and we sold it in as some way to hold you condoms and made a whole video I got my make Chris Copa who actually appease in a couple of other quad lock things he in the lightest quad lock videos we did. He is like the BMX he does, like BMX riding and shit anyway. Yeah,
it got picked up by Gizmodo budget had a quarter of a million views in a week in just a couple of days. And it was all April Fool's whatever. And the idea being the idea being that it was like, it was basically the same product, but we just caught up player and just promoted as like, where to hold the condoms, but it actually was we need actually have it ready to go, just in case. Yeah, well, they do. And I had that the holder stuff, all that sort of thing, but to the, the ones. I the one that I did like was Seth Godin did one he Yeah, he did a blog post and I thought it was real quite funny saying these out of ideas. Just being like, you know, I've been doing this blog for 16 years and I've always pushed that, you know, you can always have more ideas and I've just realized that like, there isn't an infinite amount of bodies in a matter of them. I'm done. I'll fuck you've said it gave me this I had a big sigh of relief I'm like fuck takes the pressure off when set saying this. And I realized these fucking break it to you in the same thing at the end. It's like the blog post. In the end. It's like a performance I saw a few YouTube is getting involved one of my April Fools that I've been involved in. Yeah,
I was at the radio station and I had one of my co hosts she finished up quit and so I was by myself waiting for my new co host to arrive. Yeah. And as we were in shape it is
on the day of April Fools. Briggs came in and we were like, you know, big announcement good show I'm good at co host coming the new co host is breathe and we had problem is everyone's fucking rapped about it and then
everyone's like if I can bullshit out to say we loved it and so yeah, we had to break their house and anyway the moral The story is don't aim too high with your April Fool's jokes because people will just be disappointed when they find out some true or just have your Kickstarter ready to actually take payment for your business idea for daily talk show everyone please send us an email height the daily talk show.com Good good a bit of letter and the letter in the P o box way today checked it but it's a fact and returned to sender there's a fucking dental company who used to have our P o box 400 it's got the backing stamp is the return thing so I wonder if we can get the stamps off them so we can use it
