conversation sometimes worth recording with Josh Johnson and Tommy jacket it's a daily Talk Show Episode 122 tell me jacket Where are you mate? Same places I was yesterday calling right now that how's it
is it is it freezing cold and calling one nights absolutely freezing cold and he's a thing of like the haters I'm just concerned about the costs I never thought I was going to be one of those people whereas my old man used to be you know brutal about having a heater on and I couldn't quite work it out whether it was just he didn't like the and I still don't know whether he was being tired ass with the money for it just doing like the temperature yeah yeah yeah yeah but he turns PowerPoints off the plug so then he wants once act out when I said this is just annoying it's like the inconvenience of having a turn it back on yeah but you save you know it was like five five bucks a quarter or something
like the thing Yeah, like I got severely sunburned one year like really I didn't think I got some burnt and it just turns out that I didn't go in the sun and brain I were living in Port Melbourne and I spent four hours in the sun and so it was an amount of time where I wasn't realizing how burnt I got was getting and I got home and I was red all over and was really bad and Bray said to me she's like oh we can't have the I want to sleep with the economy and praise like not it's gonna cost too much money I said to I was like it's a that we have the icon on or you take me to the hospital because
it was so bad
been overdrive was house so I've been thinking about the cost of what the heater that we got in my office space is costing so I did like a calculation they reckon it's gonna be an added hundred dollars a month to the bill
mean that's not too bad. Yeah I mean it's not it's not rather than
per month per month. So a few to have it on fit for six to seven hours a day. So I get it i'd like you become your parent. You understand the realities that they are facing of life actually cost money and you comfort like fact our home electricity bill was $500 for the quarter or something
seems ridiculous. Yeah, I remember we had a lot of conversations around the power and just I would always be leaving lights on and stuff like that. And same with my dad would be flicking him off and going berserk about it. But, ya know, I feel like I've gotten a lot lot better about it, too. But so it's it's freezing cold. Basically way where you are? Because what
you said tracing call and I caught up with my brother today. He's still in the office Maki Have you met mocking
Yeah. We met at your at bodies' birthday. That's right. Yes. He met the V he met the photographer. Which was you
did take some photos and video. Yeah, it's great. You Hide. Hide. Help. No, I was having coffee with him today. And I saw like all these clearings. Was this. It looked like almost like a mini mag lot. You know, they look like or like, Is that like a
I think I know. Yeah,
sure. And then
I said, What's this? And I started on screwing it. And then I thought it was gonna be the thing that you put earbuds into. Have you seen those people like who go to concerts a lot. There's like little lamb capsule things that you can put two key rings that you buds in them. It's usually for people who have tinnitus. Amy actually has one that you can. Yeah, so you just check him in. So you don't have injuries. But it wasn't that I unscrewed it. And he tapped out these little tablets. That was an ecstasy. It was lactose tablets, because he's lactose intolerant. So if he if he wants to smash a full cream latte, or Yeah,
cheese platter. He can just down a couple of days. Do you remember that I had a potential client reach out to me about this specific product. And the thing was the confusing thing about it was that they couldn't actually it wasn't for dairy. It was for gluten. But the problem was that there was
a client I had Bodie. Yeah,
but the thing was that they basically couldn't say anything that was sort of between a rock and a hard place because they wanted to target people who couldn't eat gluten, but they couldn't say that they'll for celiac they'll basically all these restrictions around it so it's a bit bullshit So does it actually work is he drinking a litre of milk and
now he just said for the occasion that I need to eat something it's it seems that the anti cheat yourself tablets Yeah, is
he it's the anti anti laxative is. He is so he can't eat dairy? Is he dairy intolerant or something?
Well, he's a soy light. You saw your
brain actually went on brain. I had a pearl spritz. Yes. I and they will. Massive, massive cups. And before you knew what, we were really tipsy. I fell asleep on the street
that was tied as well. But
pray was had this whole thing talking about how I I am a bit of a soil boy, but she likes that. I'm so times a bit sort of blokey. And then I'm also a sorry, boy,
I love it. So he sees the wake of my I'm just milking the wake of my wedding anniversary, but two years ago, and it's a sore spot for you, isn't it not getting the invite to my wedding? It's very hurtful, but that's okay. I get it. I get it. It's
one best man Yeah. And yeah,
and then just don't invite the guy that
I mean say exactly. I remember that conversation was like JJ if would you still come to the wedding? If you couldn't be the best man I'm like, Bro, I only do the top I'm gonna do the best I made the groom or the best man won't even me not in you. And you're booked out to be the videographer
but there's a story Marquis Can you come around here so the story it's he told it
it was like Marquis had thought that it was my 21st not my bloody waiting that he was telling his story county
this is a this is a common thing that people do is they take it take the speech too far I'm going to this is I'm outsourcing the podcast from my into my sound on here is
okay. He's putting on the head he's putting on the headphones on right now. And my you just speak howdy you just speak in directly into the microphone. You should be okay. You got your puffer jacket on his Tommy turned off the hater. To save costs or out
so you've so it was like a 21st birthday Tommy saying what happened?
Well, now it was a wedding speech. Yeah, the waiting speech about the
incident with the house.
So this is one of those stories that as a as a kid growing up was one that I just used. Just, you know, I trash talk, Tommy just gave me a bit of the other hand, you know, as a brother, you know, just keep your younger brothers in. That applies. Yeah. But as it turns out, when you grow up and join that out, you start to appreciate those stories in you actually want to hear them even if they're about yourself. So tell me, tell me, tell me loves this story. But essentially, I have this vivid memory of just watching Telly in the land room as you do just what a cat and at the time and Tommy. Tommy was in quite a bit of pain. And I could hear that. And so I had to go and explore what what was the cause of this pain. And I just have this image of him out on the back deck with naked
and so you're going to imagine that he's fine. He's maybe seven at the time, I reckon. Yeah, so other than 11 or 12, who's seven, right? And so he's out on the back deck dead thought dad's a pretty serious character by nature. So he was in solution mode and Tommy Tommy had an erection that he couldn't get down
and he just he was in such a state of panic that dad just had to fix it and say he's
out still any any had this code? It was either from the hose or a cold pot of water. And he was pouring the water or any
any direction. Just try to help him get it down.
Literally in tears.
sides of Yeah, it's an interesting image of it's very
well over. How did it go over at the wedding?
I got a few last
time did a good picture of you know, Tommy and he's lost struggles. Yeah,
I feel like that. It's it's probably going to trigger him for the rest of his life now
and and. And so. Um, how old was he? Did you say
look, I think he was seven reckoning was around seven. He was small little he was maybe young. Look, it was a six or seven. My let's go between between five and 10,017.
He wasn't 17. Now.
I wasn't any new in your
funny, right. Just. Well, how was the wedding anyway? Because I wasn't invited. Was it now? Yeah.
Do it was good. Yeah, I brought my head for the speech. Actually.
any any footage that I could say. Just I get a bit of a claim. So it'd be it'd be great.
Awesome. Thanks, Mike. You know, I
always say john, Tasha
That's nearly as good as my squeegee story.
You know what I I think about whether I can remember or not. And I do remember the times that I I must have made the thing I would wake up with one as you do. If you're a man,
I've even noticed Bodie he's been working out with a little little bonus it's the most bizarre thing on earth I didn't realize that yeah I can't I can't remember getting a burner until I was like 12 or something
What did you say Mako
when did I go from being a bona to an erection? That's true yeah we need to come yeah
when when you become an adult
but now I do remember it happening
I'm glad we were able to second down the road bring enough smarts to the shows especially the first 10 minutes well let
me just tell you smack connects Gemma watts shout out to you emailed through on high as the daily talk show.com and you say
that and I haven't seen the emails May I tell
area in Italy I hit true so yesterday we were just talking about that the big day and be the the drawing in the sand or whatever it is that I found on Google satellite and she said nothing quite compares to the drone with weed killer my high school in in 2008 and then she put the shows us a photo sent us a link to a news.com article
the kids had gone out onto the oval it's hilarious it's huge and so and I remember we were going to do stuff like that or they asked all but the the time before the year before the I think was a the year before the year before that they people put oil on the roundabout so ours was sliding sliding off the roundabout so since then they were like really strict about anything happening this amazing on us come to you I'm just looking at
my model man is to tell me a story I used to tell my dad and I said to my dad can you tell me some stories from the olden days
anyway I used to tell me the story from when he was in high school and it was like they are equivalent of mockup dam let you
put the heater on when he told the story
turn the heater on my suit
no i i will say the jacket household we had central heating and it wasn't allowed to go ever certain level but it was always warm so we had a nice but he's he is the downside we didn't get a conditioning until I was about 17
you know just before before we go into the the your dad story. The thing with the air con This is one of the biggest annoyances as a kid which looking back is extremely privileged situation but we had air conditioning but it was the the sheet air con that requires you to open the doors all the windows of that pretty cold yeah it's yeah yeah it's the dumbest a con it's like hot air out let's open up all the doors and try and make it cool I was just lusting for a refrigerated air con where we could close the doors
there is a evaporate if it's using the moisture in the attic. Is that what it does? So they the ones you put water into them and you can put cold water into them and makes it go a bit cold
cold never put on it but
the yeah the problem is if it's stinking dry hate the useless
Yeah, and the other thing too but the big pain point in our household when we're in this field South was the pool heater you would you know if mom and dad were away or whatever, you'd put it on like 33 degrees or whatever it was sort of a your infection inducing stuff but they would that would crack crack it
well, yes, me. Oh, man. He He said his high school. The kid lifted the the one of the principles had a mini mock like me like a mini wouldn't be. We spoke about the mini marks on the show once. It's like a fanboy. It's basically looks like a golf cart on with the top off anyway. It's like tiny little fold drive with no top this. This was a mini and so they lifted this mini over into a
nipple court that had like a small sort of knee high fence around it. And it was just sealing it off. And so they lifted over this barrier so that the guy couldn't get the car out.
would you pay though you'd be caught. The rumor was at my high school that I went Wesley college that there's a there's this old grand staircase up to one of the top floors. And supposedly the rumor was I think I even did this as a phone up on
Shepherd shepherd and to get Yeah, get people to tell us their mockup die stories. The rumor was that people brought a cow to school and they took it up the stairs and you can't you can't actually have a Cow Cow won't walk downstairs. They can go off they can't come down.
That's a really control. Yeah, it'd be amazing. I mean bit of an animal cruelty bed
he said as long as they're not as long as they didn't have to put the cow down. Could you imagine just like we could have to get the police out and get the shotgun that would be horrendous. I I want to bring a segment I don't think we've really got any official say minutes do we?
Well, we've got no structure if we're talking about dicks two days in a row. Yeah it's true but the maybe that could be it's Tommy snotty segment. Maybe we could turn that into yeah I'm actually a big fan of them. So
no, I want to start a segment you ready for it? Yeah, I'll just start I've still got my I don't know if it's I don't know if this is a favor I might just be sick but I think I'm going to be better by tomorrow I'm just gonna give a big cough and then I'm going to announce the segment
here we go. It has to start with a cough every single time I can do that it's called Life traps with Josh
okay so like traps with Josh I was going into music intro but then I thought it would slow down my interesting time because I'd have to inserted every time yeah true but just just quickly creative idea on how you could have actually had a music bid created was finding a basket because they were everywhere in Italy is playing some beautiful music just recorded on your iPhone There's our royalty free
worried I'd be worried about being hustled
so life traps so we all hear about life hacks it's you know how to hack things in life to get the most the most out of it what the thing that I've been observing a lot lately and what we need to worry about his life traps where it's these things that set up in life to trap us and I'm here to expose them good how does how does this sound
well I'm always about an expert as I ok
so i've got a bunch of them but I'm only gonna do one maybe one a day maybe that's too much maybe do one a week I've got a few but once they said what ya know I'm gonna do one a segment but I'm wondering whether I do it the segment every single day but I feel like that requires a discussion with you or not because that can be that can could turn into a whole show but first life trap was experienced two days ago when ordering a for cash i
said i said i don't know we've gone over that in length either cat chat for Casa I should know given it's what I
mean usually but I'm such an idiot it took me like two days to realize that that's what it was I just throw it was sort of pizza slice the top things that were in squares and then praise like Do you want another for cash? I'm like I haven't had one yet it's like you want one before
but anyway the
we we were ordering a for cash and it was it was 120 years very cheap. Do you think dollar 20 brilliant yeah well you're as bad as Bray 120 years isn't $1 20
it's $2 but he's I think he's the thing that if you're in Europe and you converting the money in your wife or three months you've got a difficult trip ahead he you just gotta treat it like he paying $4 for a coffee in Australia or four euros in Europe for coffee non well and then you definitely do not that is the worst advice I've ever heard I think anyone listening would agree I think it's transferable though because when you do travel things are very similar in there in I know you dabble it but coffees everywhere in Europe usually costing between two ID and for it which is around about the same price but in a different currency if that makes sense. No it doesn't make sense because if you if something was to 50 euros, it would be nearly a $5 Coffee not i know i know but I'm saying it's a similar price for as in what way when you're in the country I know it does translate it The problem is don't try it Don't be trying to convert the every purchase it's a nice thing that I think that's a massive trap that you're falling into you need to eat cat if anyone is is if anyone has heard the advice that you're always at and dollars of the same thing and not what I'm saying I'm saying
it sounds like it a lot going on you can keep explaining yourself if you want to you wouldn't eat an ice cream if you were converting it every time so you end up paying like if you run machines like that I'm having to do some sort of fucking equation that involves pie sometimes remaining part I get me wrong but we're literally talking about just doubling it as a conservative number yeah he's a good way of doing it so if I've got a cappuccino and I spend five bucks or five euro sorry that five euros is actually looking like eight Australian dollars yeah
and and so that's the psychology of it too is some things will look cheaper worth like. Amen pizzas only 10 euros? Yeah, that that is still $19 which is isn't crazy. It I think it's good. I would strongly, strongly, strongly disagree with your argument is to trade them as one one. Well, no, trading them one for one because otherwise, what the fuck you eating or drinking? You're not going to find similar prices in Europe as you do in Australia. Like we think coffee really you're doing it for tourist traps, which is also you know, part of the whole life traps is that the you can see July it like you need to be able to ascertain is this are they trying to rip us off here so you need to have some sort of sense of like what if we pay for coffee last time so we can make sure that we're not paying an exhibit because we saw like examples but was like four euros for coffee but then we had coffee at another place and it was for like one year or so then we knew I say that this is a tourists This is a tourist touristy
bit But like I say you're on the lookout you're on the lookout for life trap yeah so
and so I ordered the for Kasha I said. The first beach in
Italian. I was really proud. I think I said
Sen. Daniella, I think was the name of the cash that I wanted. You know send Daniella off of aura and she brought she then had like a slicer and she was sort of showed me where she was slicing. And I was like, Yeah, like Yeah, that looks like I just didn't not it anyway
it was she then gave me the price and it was 540 euros and my thought that was that it was 120 euros and this has gotten me before and it's got nothing to do with the them and everything to do with me but on the sign which I just completely ignored and didn't really connect the two together next to the 120 euro sign it said
What did it say
to go to the old white I don't think they'll try to scam it all about it reminds me of 2012 South Melbourne Cole's I bought a watermelon because it said he
ended up costing $11 because I thought I'd never bought a watermelon in my life. And I was like I didn't realize watermelons with his shape. So I carried this whole and I got to the checkout and they said $11 and I was so embarrassed about that just ended up taking it to work. Yeah, a whole fucking watermelons. So
funny. I've done that. Same thing with watermelon. That's the trap. The watermelon trap
has definitely if you ever see a blog carrying a watermelon in calls you know that the fact that they've got no idea they're about to learn a valuable lesson.
Do you know what you know what I'm gonna do as a bonus because of this is this celebrate tree first inaugural life trap or Joe Barnes one man. I don't know if that's how you keep the longevity in it. Well, here we go.
Another life trap. I don't know how to avoid this necessarily. But you want a water. Yeah, you go to a supermarket or whatever you order water. You buy water, ordering your cup of water buying, buying buying a bottle of water because you don't want to drink the water around here. So you know, buying bottles everywhere you go. And then quite inexpensive compared to see the amount Franklin and stuff in Melbourne. Anyway, a side note on the water bottle this so some of the plastic is so thin that I had a situation two days ago where I was opening the bottle of water and I was just holding the bottle a little bit too tired. And I lost half the bottle on me. And then I kept I kept like accidentally like your instinct in that moment is to hold it firm and just people that I was fucking crazy because I was in the middle of the street tipping water on me. Thank you. Tom. It started on my God, have one Negroni. And you have any weight tastes great competition with yourself. What is an ingrown is another is that like an apple? Oh, yeah. Sorry. Sorry.
Night. That's what we're all on the ground. He's like, Yeah, actually, you have one Negroni, you'd be on the floor and going he's like a pretty hard cocktail. It's quite a few substances in it. So
No, thanks. But that wasn't the live show up the live trapeze ordering water especially when it's not in English on not in your native language. You take a sip and you get the biggest shock of your life when it's fizzy water is there anything more confronting you think that there's a the two seconds when you sip that that you think you're getting poisoned because you have no idea? shocks? Yeah, you're not expecting bubbles. And especially when they're the little bubbles. So they tricky that that got me yesterday by nearly had a heart attack. Well,
I'd be I'd be happy in mind. The only problem I wouldn't find such a trap if I was drinking water, but I once opened up by a nippy milk. I don't know if that's an Australian brand. You know, hippies just blocks. It's like a doctor on every day. I had a I had a coffee flavored one. I took one sip of it and it was fizzy milk frizzy, then you done. Why was it it was a milk it was completely off. It was freezing in my mouth, because that's how I felt was Cassie And so
yeah, that is an issue that is the whole fizzy water thing is a massive life tribe. And it's extending now beyond that, which is also a so many of these waters. Now we're doing different flavors. So you think he getting a normal like you're getting a green bottle and you just think it's a bit quirky? Brian? I'm trying to do something with water, and it's got lime. And
what I love when I'm traveling is seeing how wrong Melbourne have got something and what you could actually bring home. You know what I always think, why did I just send out some people around the world to find the best of the best. And then we just implement that and need to have utopia. It sounds like almost a TV show it best of the best. Yeah, but why not? So what like, I know, in Tel Aviv like the beaches had the best showers, water bottle refills. It was like crazy. It was like study at the white like, how does a country like Australia not have that? So Kevin? I am Josh interestingly, I did some work with some farmers like in the agricultural industry
a few months ago. And they were talking about they go to places like Israel
that you were nation research. Apparently they're really good with the organization. So they do send over groups of people, but they're not doing it at the level that is different types of water or Coca Cola flavors. Fun fact about that the reason that m&m peanut butter peanut m&ms aren't in Australia is because one of the ingredients that are in the formula is actually banned in Australia. So they're reformulating it but it's not their top priority they actually have a few other flavors that they're working on including I believe like an Oreo cookie fly them oh yeah teen cream flavor which I I heard from my nation Mars so that's exciting time. Have you
got into any of the Ferriero products in a little? Because in the supermarkets? The Ministry of markets is like we want to or whatever. Yeah, yeah,
but there's like, even like these little cake things. Nutella. I haven't. We haven't been doing much of the grocery stuff we I just have been eating I've been like meal replacing sometimes with July, which has been amazing. But it's what you do when you're in Italy? Yeah.
Because it can you because this this is the shit that gets me guy. Can you take a photo of any weed? Can you buy something we'd from a supermarket that is very much the opposite of what they sell in Australia and partials and a T shirt just do a little review. Okay, well,
it's it's not going to be as bad as I think was man. There was some stuff to whole I think in add some stuff in the Philippines, which was pretty
wasn't my cup of tea. There was one thing which was like a an egg, which is like, got the little fucking bird in it, which was horrendous. Oh,
and then there's another one I think was called to haul because there's a guy who walks along the streets yelling it in the morning and it's some sort of like soy drink and obviously I don't drink soy and found standard stuff but I did try it was it wasn't like right
before. Before we go I've got a marketing idea for the daily talk show. Once a run by you want to run always up for that. Do you want any segment
know things are not from you? Not from you. But high at the daily talk. show.com if you've got any life trappings life traps, I may have used the true that written down already. That was my only feedback. Just be careful of threading three into one. Yeah, it could have been yet the fizzy water one that was a time traveler card. I wrote fizzy poison,
but I need to move some of the stuff across. Because I already spoke about in our chicken salt and my tinted moisturizer. And my food shop story.
Now we're doing debrief of our podcast. Yeah. How does
the best this is the this is the admin section guys, because we're talking about getting close. This is the boardroom
we're talking marketing for the daily talk show and I was thinking about how how can we how can we do something that's got cut through that's not what everyone else is doing. I was sitting on the canals yesterday and my I was had my water bottle and I was really worried that I was going to drop it in there and then people were gonna shine me for being illiterate and in the moment I was like started thinking about messages in a bottle and then it got me thinking I'm like what
what a bit yeah good reference I don't don't know that's what's that guy I'm a genie in a bottle baby come if calm
placed on the so no message in a bottle. Different two Gs.
How about that as a tactic for the daily talk show you and I could get a bunch of glass bottles put our URL or like a small note asking them to listen to the daily talk show and even give us a review on iTunes or the podcast apple
and say you what sort of cut through what do you think? First impressions? Yeah,
look, I think there's probably not enough value. I think we offer a value evaluate show a show is valuable. But probably for someone who's just walking along the beach and seen a bottle it probably needs an incentive an activation code or go to this website, the daily talk show.com forward slash message in a bottle and then they can kind of
feels true brand activation. I think that the it needs to be something where they feel like man, this feels like a sign I felt because if you found a water if you found a bottle and I had a message and I feel like if it said you're going to be very wealthy soon, you will absolutely be like fact this is the world telling me this so I feel like we have the attention of our audience. So I think that we could just say to them you should you need this in your life with a with a link
Look, I'm willing to I'm willing to get involved you willing to do it all. For me. It's it's a five year strategy because it might not actually come back until five years later. But the one I wasn't sure on was the environmental impact is it not okay nowadays to to the whole message in the bottle because of the environment?
I think Yeah, well, I'm sure you you would have people getting upset about it. Yeah, yeah.
Okay. Yeah, I mean, it depends if you want to go down that route. It's not
that's okay. Yeah, that's right.
Although I'd like to see you do it in drug practice.
I'll just fucking do Facebook ads. Yeah,
you probably get a get a few more results we've done i think i think the message in the bottle thing would be really powerful will look if you support Joshua's message in the bottle hi at the daily talk show.com or
if you don't live near a beach if you live somewhere that you could if we if we gave you the tools I a bottle and a message if you would be a willing participant you're near a beach or need some form of water preferably it should be attached to an ocean because like would be quite boring I assume you're senior leader you've just outsourced and so this conspiracy theory doesn't it
it's all fun all right now been
help us get the message out there maybe not in a bottle it like subscribe to the podcast it helps
yeah I don't know if there's anyone listening that's not subscribing Do you think especially these episodes and not I definitely virgin names I you subscribe to our podcast yeah
I thought he might have not been beneath
that was that was nice well hopefully I want to say that up front my I sound like sheet at the moment which must be better than I started nice
everything when you first started a
great but yeah I'm am I in Venice tomorrow Yes I'll be in Venice tomorrow so we'll be we'll be doing it live again from me being in Venice and then I'll be off to Florence so from my day I'll be in Florence and then on Friday will have a guest episode I haven't worked out which guest Oh yeah.
I actually was thinking that Yeah. Who Have we got on working out by tomorrow? Yeah, yeah,
absolutely. It's a daily talk show everyone please send us your emails if you are listening we love hearing from you what you liking what you're hiding whether you to live near a beach don't even you don't even have to be willing to do the bottle bit yet. We can. We can talk numbers we can. We can work it out. But we just need people who would need waterways. let's let's let's say that. waterways. If you're near a waterway, please be in contact him down. Maybe we can send you some stickers were saying to get some Instagrams of people sending three stickers to Russell Sean have received this stickers. If you do receive them, and you've put them on something interesting. Send us an email as well. Everything else TJ before we are

Okay. Alright guys. Have a good one, guys.
