- August 8, 2018
The Daily Talk Show — Wednesday August 8 (Ep 147) – Josh Janssen & Tommy Jackett
It’s been a while since we’ve checked the PO Box and we’ve got mail, we receive our most awkward podcast review, Tommy accidentally clicking send on an email (classic Life Trap), doing the show live and more!
The Daily Talk Show is on Instagram! https://www.instagram.com/thedailytalkshow/
Send us mail: PO BOX 400, Abbotsford VIC 3067
conversation sometimes worth recording with Josh Johnson and Tommy jackets the daily talk show
everyone this is Episode 147 Tommy jacket what is what is cracking look for people who don't know I'm currently in Krukow in Poland eating a lot of food
it's currently just after 6am here How are things that your end but is
that light coming in like a natural light is it already brought yeah that
yeah man it's been bright since probably around I think I woke up for the first time for this morning thinking oh man I've got to get up now and then I looked at the time and I still had like an hour and a half but I could sleep it's perfect
you gotta love that
well it's a bit different scene here it's it's it's called it's just that writing so you might hear a bit of a pitter patter on the roof and it's not it's not the kind that's lovely when you are in bed it's it's during the day and be able to do shit so it's a it's freezing everyone's gonna call it but a perfect some exciting news Josh I went in check the P o box because you put me in charge of the P o box firstly if you have a key to a p o box you could pretty much steal anyone's mail even even even the like the ticket that you take in because the password was too big to put into the P o box because I didn't even check my ID he said oh you must have mission because you can access the payer box I was like yeah that's that sounds about correct what he
actually set you must it did he use those words you must have permission because you've got the key to the P o box
legit away thought I mean it would have a bit of a weird thing from the side and I he he could have just been scratching his nose as well like he was in on the joke with me but he didn't and i and i got a parcel and so this is what you expecting a parcel now also the only but so for people who are new to the show first of all sometimes there's a slight delay in Tommy in my banter it's got nothing to do with our hashtag chemistry and everything to do with using the internet from one side of the world to the other but now I that p o box it has because Bray and I are going away like or wide to the next couple more months that's where any bills are going to go and it's also the official p o box of the daily talk show so it's p o box 400 Abbotsford Victoria 3067 and you're saying we've got some stuff
we've got some stuff but I I've got like a parcel like if you order something online you know so i don't like if it's not anything to do with the show but I'm happy to
open it yeah
what does it say I say it it seems it doesn't say it's from ups it was I think there's yeah it's from the States Los Angeles I'm just thinking it might have been part of your a brand new Guinea flirtatious show it to sit down like
can I see it on the video games
I can I grow it feels like a little cushion so I grabbed
my phone and I how my old time does in audio form but I've gotta say I'm loving
you know it's true yellow as in the
why his trailer centers t shirts is in the the board that we put together all of our shows on
T shirts Did you
now I didn't organize this
oh my god that is a rating our show notes
yeah what's I wanted it
so there's joy hi Josh jet hi Josh and Tommy Who do you guys use trailer for the show Keep up the great work taco taco
for one and I definitely won't fit into this one I could yes
so accuses This is outrageous
we got Steve I think it's talk our is the dog This is this
yes suppression of content if I've ever seen it
right oh actually
I serve this was Mexico in this trailer yeah
amazing this I can't believe I wonder what they I wonder if they want to have I came across this I mean if I was them I would probably be looking everyone's boards saying how they using it
I don't know like a surely I don't know if like terms and conditions they can do that like I wonder if they can actually go in and look at the boards and say this is a podcast we should check him out but they heard us mention it so
last night yeah
Someone has to either listen to the show or or they really are bored either know what they do have listen
I have to have listened because they've actually
said they've heard us on the show and it's a pretty it'd be a bold claim to just assume that that yeah so I think that it must be someone who listens This is super exciting I was I was just checking the trailer board to say if we'd put our P o box in there somewhere which I don't think
we're in trouble is based in the states might yeah like this all right do open open the next one just quickly through these because rather than I have translates
quite awesome he sent through he sent through a sticker of guides
you see that we can we need to have like a fridge or something in the office where we're adding all of our stickers I feel like that can be a okay thing
I like it asked why and then he's written their lovely lovely card I don't know if you I'll just read the first line absolutely loving the podcast if my 14 year old daughter Allison is getting into the episode and goods that amazing yeah I
saw Allison liking
Instagram posts that size that's my this is a caveat I did not expect that we would get any anything from the P o box so this is actually I'm actually shocked that this is actually worked at
Ask and you shall receive I think was
man said all right now I'm opening at one I know who this is from.
This is come all the way from it's a worldwide up to 100 grams. That's what the
what he called. little sticker says. All right, here we go. Hi, guys. Well, I'm in the family. Now. I thought I'd throw you a little This is from Michelle. She sent through a whole stack of stickers because I think
she's got Sanders an apple sticker which comes with Apple your Apple she says it road I love road Mike sticker which comes with the product
I think is Is she still waiting on the stickers that you're meant to be sending? 100% that's
why it is And do you know what Michelle is definitely something he in all these brands are sending stickers nowadays and people don't know where to always get them. I think almost so wines known for his hats is always like trying on different hats. We could almost be the sticky guys where people can send us their unused stickers and we can create some like maybe what we could do is every single time we send out the daily talk show stickers you also get a random other sticker for another brand
yeah I like it there's heaps here it's she sent us like the computer I think this is must be from like a some sort of computer part that she bought and got a bunch of stickers AMD I series Black Edition yeah yeah yeah it's
like it's a chipset that's awesome like Intel
this bag well I don't know exactly what
we'll do with all this stuff but
I like your idea Josh of creating some sort of system where we're sharing the sticker love what we had we haven't mentioned the P o box in a long time so if people do want want to send us letters p o box 400 Abbotsford Victoria 3067
and I wish I loop yeah gone yet go close it play on the riddle that was sent through from Michelle and we will try and work it out and it was The Da Vinci Code to a few dumb ass is like us but I'm Captain James just asked me before in the office he said mate did you work out that thing Michelle sent you so the listeners a cane my case study of just one but in if you broke it down, it spelt out stickers and that connects to the letter that she sent through with all the stickers so you say that
enough of it. I feel like even saying stickers would have I still would have been dumbfounded I still wouldn't have gotten so that's the thing it's one thing to know the answer there's another thing to actually have the mental capacity to take it on.
Yeah, it's very funny what you're about to say something
What was I gonna say? I was I think I was gonna troll you about the fact that I checked the daily talk shows reviews on iTunes or through the podcast app I check it regularly to say if anyone has left us any reviews because that's one way that the podcast app knows that people are listening and will promote the show and things like that anyway I got a nice one that said you know I think you said keep up the great work lads or something like that and talking about Banta Michael This is nice Who's this from and I looked at the top and it was Tommy jacket
I need to have a platform to explain myself that's a fairly bit embarrassed about this what do you know what it is
it's the equivalent of liking your own photo on Instagram or masturbating to a pic of you self that's probably what
if it's the latter definitely master back to pick yourself that's why I feel bad about so let me just let me just explain. I was working with Mason my main man who helps out with some of the podcast content and content around absolute legend and he's like can you please do one of those screen recordings on your phone? I want to do like a review Insta story where it's encouraging people to jump on show them how to leave a review on the podcast as it yeah sure I'll do it quickly before I leave so I did it and I was like a screen record jump into it find the talk show here on review. Right and I just winged it I'll just like I call it the subject line was Banta and I just wrote Keep up the great work boys or lads I can remember. And then I press Submit. And then I gave it a five star review. And honestly God I literally thought it wouldn't allow me to do it. Because for some reason I was like I like in YouTube account. Like your own videos are now in Facebook and stuff. But summaries that I was just like this one go through or have already done it. Something's something's not gonna work here. And sure enough, you screenshot and post it on your own. It was it on your own. I was on daily talk show
goes on my it wasn't my own Instagram.
So I'm the egomaniac. It's basically ranking to a photo of myself.
I was I was disappointed really that it took us this long to do it. Like I think there's a bit of respect there for you that you didn't have a fake name and do this months and months and months ago. So I think it's quite it's quite admirable. I'm sure I've definitely left of rating probably not as narcissistic is to leave a review of myself yet, but that will come very soon. I'm sure
I think it Yeah, it was. It was a stupid move by myself. But I just need to tell you a something I experienced. It's like bit of a trap. I mean, this could just fall into a life
saving the life trap
life track. So
he be alive. That's where it's sad. It's a laugh trap gone. I'm this is almost like, there's not an embarrassing story attached to it, which it very well could have been. And I want to stop this from happening to anybody else. Because I was writing an email to my brother, and my brother is not someone I care if I accidentally send an email through to and it's exactly what I did. But I didn't know that you could do this. So in Google, if you're if you hold that. So in Google Mail, Gmail, if you hold down Command and press return, it sends the email and so I was halfway through this based of an email and I hit command and return for some reason.
And it shut off my email. Please be careful if you're typing out a work email, and you're not sure about exactly if you want to send it or not something I do constantly. I write the email then then scrub it out and start again. Because it's probably just shooting from the hip a bit but fashion. So as I OSH
Yeah, shooting from the hip. You just not even thinking just within the revolver at and shouldn't lock in cowboy. Yeah, well, so that happened to me before. And then Bree told me about the fact that you can go into Google Apps with Jay Gmail, whatever you use, and set a delay. So I have that set up now. So if I send an email, it has like a 22nd grace period for me to retract what I've what I've just said that this is why I need you in my life back in Melbourne for my tech support you but I'm I am my mother. For me. I'm heard tech support and new in my You're my son who did helping out with all this bullshit. Well, I was thinking it would be good. I think at some point, eventually, it would be good to have a specific technology segment. I don't know what that looks like. But definitely, I feel like there's so many tech stories or things to talk about that are related to tech that we could definitely, you know, once a week to a five minute bit on technology. Yeah, I
I think if everyone could pick one of the one of their friends that knows something really, really well. And they kind of proud they were it as like a badge of honor where it's like, yeah, have you do you know, do you know that James is very well versed in in this area? And like you and you're that guy in the tech space and camera stuff? It's like it gives it gives me a good feelings like, Yeah, well, if you ask Josh, Josh, that first and then
at the show.com where people can submit their their tech questions as well. We don't want it to turn into the tech guy with Josh doing it. But I have thought about that I actually was thinking so we can run this pass people. What what's your vibe, TJ on
potentially doing the show live. So you know, we're going to be in a studio and rather than just being a podcast, people will know that every morning, if you're in Melbourne, or whatever time around the world. You can tune in and go to our YouTube channel and watch the live stream what what's your vibe on the live stream idea? Yeah,
I've thought a thought through quite a bit. I am I definitely can't be the cowboy as much as I am. And I people be like, don't feel yourself and you don't want to be some sort of PC version of yourself. But I mean, like, I just I know, there are some shortfalls in in myself that maybe there has been a few edits out of what I may have said in the past. But I think it's good training. I like that aspect of it are Catholic man, I just pick my nose as I was going on to talk about not doing sheet on camera, I literally just knows,
I think there'll be there'll be some training wheels that will be on and that will come across in knowing that there's a camera set up, I think there has to be some sort of God that drops down, which I think getting through that will be at least 20 episodes and then coming out the other side. But I like it. I like the thought of whether people watch it live or not. It's that's another thing. But I think yes, I'm sort of morning maybe when people get to work, they could flick it on. And
it would be asking people what time of the day would be the best time for you to consume and live stream? Obviously, we would be happy if no, no one in our existing audience base listen to us live, that'd be okay. Like, because we understand that, like, first and foremost, we are a podcast, but it's just another element, being able to do it live. So if you would listen to us live, send us an email, tell us what time I was thinking potentially, like, 9am, I could imagine if I worked for myself, or whatever, having it in a in a tab somewhere, you know, in Chrome, and just listening to it. Or maybe flicking on now. And then to the second screen and watching it on YouTube? I don't know. Yeah,
like 9am, like the first coffee is Yeah,
sitting down, getting ready for the day. And, well, you know, I liked it a few idiots. I you know, I like to geek out of thing on things. And one of the things I have been looking at was a different technology that we could incorporate. And one of them is a dump a button. So within radio, basically, there's a
15 second or 10 second delay, where if you say something, there's different varying levels. So the most basic one will
basically I think, when you press press the dump button, it removes the last 10 seconds, and it can go to a pre recorded beach, then these more sort of technical ones that will actually allow you to censor and things like that. So I'd like to say the show colon Jackie O show, which is a big show in Sydney, in Australia, big Breakfast Show, they had a heap of trouble with saying the wrong things and getting sort of in trouble by the regulators. So they ended up having to have a sensor where someone would see Sheen, and I would be listening live. And if anything was said that shouldn't be said they would actually be put out good. So that's what they would use that delightful, but I do I will was looking at patients that we could incorporate I like the idea of having a dump button. Yeah,
I just don't know how much would use it. I didn't think without los I don't think we'll use it. How much are they did to start out with? I think it's about 2500 bucks. I
probably. But then you think about how much you get sued for. So but the only thing that was stopping me was I was like, there would be issues with the video. So this is an all sort of like an audio processing option where it's processing the audio and delaying it and then spitting it out. But I wouldn't know how to do that from a video sinking point. Yeah, I think it just it confuse it. The thing is with and for anyone who's done a podcast before, there's a lot of technical liars. And so the more you add in, and the more you need to do by yourself, the more you hear it in someone's voice, that they just literally doing a million things at once thinking about is the order going to a video? Well, that's going to be the beauty of having the podcast, Ryan is that the sorry, the studio is it's all going to be sort of baked in, like right now. There's, you know, a delay that we're working with where I'll say something, it takes a couple of seconds. And then on yesterday's episode I went through probably spent 40 minutes after the show, just going through and tightening, not removing any content, but just tightening those gaps. So I am looking forward to the time I was even thinking about it. When we start being in person have that dynamics going to even change. Like, I wonder if there's going to be a moment of getting into that cadence of not having to sort of wait two seconds for someone to finish their sentence before they start one. Yeah,
it's it's super hard. It is. It is so hard.
But I think Yeah, I'm so excited for our studio. And what's happening. I mean, we, if you haven't been listening already, just fresh to the show. Josh is away, but I'm going over to the States. Yeah. Is it wrong that I keep looking at the flights? It's looking at how much it's gonna cost? Because we haven't booked him yet. Yeah, but it's, I think it's one of those things that just liking not the excitement every time that I look at the flight and, and thinking about stopping in LA x,
and then flying to NYC. It's getting me really excited. Yeah, so well,
it's gonna be great. Like, it will be a good news for this delay. Yeah, and it will also be a
Yeah, there'll be the first time that we're seeing each other in person. So be good, you know, 10 days or whatever, going going round and having conversations with different guests. I think that's, that's what I'm excited about is, it's just like, it's going to be, you know, from what we've organized already. We've got some amazing guests over 10 days. So it's just going to be, I think, a lot of fun. It's a I am a bit that I won't say my child now. Yeah,
just not 10 days.
What, what's been the conversation see mine?
Well, Amy's then going away, so I get back. And then a week later, she's going up to Sydney for a wedding and taking Bodie, so then there'll be another like, four or five days. So it's, it's
odd, man. Like,
as soon as I leave my desk, I'm thinking about it. I'm watching videos before of my son in the bath last night, and him telling me, I'm saying Bodie, get out of the we need to get out now. And he's saying, No, no, he's responding to me. So it just like is this it gets even greater, the more that they interact, you then miss them even more. So
yeah, I mean, I'll get through it. But it's like, it's, it's, it's Yeah, it's a bit sad. Yeah,
I couldn't imagine leaving him all the time. It would be really hot.
Yeah, I'm excited about when we come back that I'm going to have Mr. That winter. Like, I think they he is a lifestyle in and this is essentially what he likes doing. I'm like, a year ago, talking to him about what he's doing at the moment where it's like, it was like, really cold. It was, you know, winter in Melbourne. And he's like, man, it'd be great to have a lifestyle where you could do you know, winter somewhere else where you could go, you know, because when basically, in Australia, when it's, you know, winter in Europe, in the US, you know, in the sort of, you know, north of Australia, it's all summer. So it's, um, I'm excited that I'm basically going to go from summer to summer. And so it will be not until probably what, June that I get shit whether again, yeah,
there's a film called Endless Summer. And it's one of the greatest surfing films of all time. Let's just, yeah, the premise of guys just chasing the wives. Yeah. And that,
I mean, you can just leave in a lion. It's pretty much nice. where the majority of the year when we're there in October will be really nothing. It's like,
Yeah, 21. Yeah. Which is getting towards their winter.
Yeah, but per particular, whether you saw the photo of the surfing in Munich Do you think that if that was you, would you have found a board and gone in yourself? Or do you see that as like too much of a local thing and you wouldn't have risked the the embarrassment of falling on your face with all those people watching
now I definitely would have given a crack and what just talking about is is and I've seen this before in Munich, there's like a river that has it must have a hole at the section where the water than dips down and then forms like this wave. And I'm obsessed with those waves in that movie. In the summer. They actually create one of these is like a river that fills up and then they dig a hole in the sand. And so when the tide rises, or at some point, they must have been some sort of
some rain that then forced all the water down and then it goes and hits this hole and then creates this wave so I've been obsessed with those hallways this not the technical term, but the wave and the river the whole I would if I had a board I'd get definitely give it a crack. Yeah, but I'm sure that the locals would get a bit just imagine office and the etiquette is idiot Australia. Yeah, well,
I could even imagine the what you were doing with surfing lake. So basically, long story short, Tommy did some drone footage of surfing spot in Australia and just put it on Facebook and had death threats from surfers from the local area calling him out for basically, you know, telling people were sort of sacred spot was could you I feel like and so Tommy basically put together pitch which got really close to like, got an offer for funding and stuff like that. And it was around that surfing culture. I wonder what it would be like the surfing culture in Munich?
Well, it's a
I think it was that just a normal day like is that always pumping. I don't know what was happening
was a Sunday I think that we get it was a Sunday. So maybe that had something to do with it. But the interesting thing about music is, it was like, on a Sunday, nothing was open. So we were there for a Saturday, Sunday. And then our flight was Monday morning. And it was fine because of the be garden was willing to, like the second largest being out in the world, sort of like a Japanese garden style thing. And it was good that that was open. It was really pumping. But yeah, for on a on a Sunday. It's not the best day to be actually doing anything like shopping. So it was it was everyone was there. I was really pumped it. Yeah. Well,
I think that wave, it's, it's it
if it's constantly working on Sure, you can sneak in I've seen as a professional service Mick fanning, I've seen him on that wave. And and it's just like a bit of fun. What happens with a fall off and then they get sucked down the river and they just paddle and you know, get back, get back up and walk back to the wives that would happen. Yeah,
I don't know how far they go down before they exit. But I was watching the river had like a real strong currents. So what we were watching is just people just like jumping into the water. And then that will just like flying along. It was almost like one of those like, rides that you would say, and one of the water theme parks. But um, it really picked you up it was a little bit like if you
if you didn't know that it was gonna be okay. I feel like you'd be freaking out. Because you wouldn't know if I sort of ended like if you if this is a first river that you'd ever seen. You would think you would never jump in because it was just so strong and you think it would end in some sort of massive waterfall but yeah that was really cool I was speaking to a friend yesterday he's going to serve Kelly sliders.
Surf ranch which is these man made wave that in its in California somewhere out the desert, right? So it's like, it's like they've all we say no, no. So picture so it used to be and I remember when they for when it when it first got leaked a really solid as this like secret project that was happening. And this guy this Australian guy now he's now but if you Google it just right Australia finds Kelly sliders. Surf wave. And he used Google Earth to find this like used to be an old like water ski park or like a whiteboarding Park. So it's basically like a man made body of water just looks like a rectangle from above. And he's doing down into it. And then saw that over the years, there was some construction going on. And then he like matched some of the photos that were coming in that were being put out by Kelly slider and was matching like they're on the light poles. And then he matched them to the ones from Google Earth, and then worked out the location. So people would have gone out to this, this man made wife and what basically it is, is it looks like a train in the water on one side of the rectangle or one like it's almost in the middle of the water in a big huge body of water. So there's still enough room on one side that the train starts and pushes through the water and creates this epic wave. That's what it looks like. Yeah, I'm sure there's like serious science that's gone on into work out how to generate this much power through the water. But it creates pretty much a perfect wave that can be barreled and they can change the height of the live and these young kids surfing it. you drown if you should not do all right. I just
wonder about this guy that did the the research it sounds like something that the you know, spies to to North Korea to work out whether they're sort of their nuclear program is still happening. Like counting fucking lighting poles and stuff like that. I gotta wrap up. But I wanted to mention Trevor long, who sent us an email listening at 30,000 feet on applying. And he's headed to New York, actually. And he was talking about the phone numbers and how he got his first
with his first phone line. Basically, the amount of numbers that he said he's phone line hand 123456 numbers was all he needed for his first landline. And he even says that people would answer their phone saying the number isn't that weird.
They didn't realize they could actually just say their name. First. I do. This is the how this is how old I am. I only I was living in the generation where there was seven numbers. So true. I've had the six Yeah, I remember before they put the nine in front of numbers in Melbourne. I don't know about Interstate, but they they added the nine on so I remember having the 555-965-4540 whatever it was, which. Yeah, that's about. But Jay strive. How old are you? Not?
Well, he said. He said that he got his second line for his house in 95 for the internet. And so in 1995, for context, I was five years old. And I do remember the internet. I remember there was a Macintosh computer that had it at school. And I remember but I specifically remember probably when I was like, like 97 or 90 is when the school got like a bunch of computers. And there was just like, no filtering involved. So you could just go to whatever your site you wanted to. It wasn't until going to high school. And they started filtering the internet. And I was just looking, I don't know why. Hashtag nostalgia alert. But I was going back to old emails the other day. And I had all of these emails of me speaking to the IT department about certain, I think it was like one of the journal like probably 2002 or 2003 one of those like blogging sites. This is like even pre must have been like, because it was like pray me knowing about WordPress and stuff like that. And I was putting up a case for why they shouldn't be blocking it. And I remember we used to just get into the BS arguments because they blocked just chance and calm the
Hello. That's right. J's imagine the discussion in the lunchroom of the teachers who the fuck is this kid once
he's own domain well the funny thing was locked these kids and I effect and KIDDING ME THE The, the teachers I think enjoyed it. The IT department Heiser that though because I would go into doing all this research where basically I'd be like, Hi, this is actually a better filtering provider. Like you shouldn't be using this one, you should use that one and these restriction that the restrictions you've given us are actually overly restrictive. You don't need to be filtering this site and this site. And so yeah, it's it's funny saying that a long winded email so I used to send to the IT department anywhere your character night. Yep,
it's a talk show everyone one day will be living the dream. And now I want the dump. I want to dump button so I can just I can filter whenever I want the real. But one thing that I do want to get in the studio. It's not very expensive, I promise. It's a cough button. So basically, it's a connects between the XLR and the mixer and it goes next to the person where they're talking. So at any time, they can hold it down, and they can basically cough and there's no sound What do you think of that or just cough just cough off Mike Knapp. That's ship. The other thing that I saw was googling all different options. One of the other ones, which is interesting. There's a thing called a panic button. And it's used for on stage performances. And what happens is it basically switches inputs. So if you press the panic button, and you're on stages, so you're singing, it will flick the input from being the main PA system to being a speaker in like the mixing at the misc mixing desk. So save something happens all of a sudden, you can press the button talking to the exact same microphone. It just goes to the person who's doing the mixing or the person that's in the bio box. I thought that was pretty cool. I don't even know these things existed. So if I didn't have them wouldn't have met it.
You're probably writes the daily talk show everyone have a good one. Send us any emails hype. The Daily talk show.com and it sounds like you're checking the P o box. TJ. So the P o box one last time is p o box 400. Abbotsford Victoria 3067. Have a good one.
