Wait a minute.
conversation, sometimes worth recording with Josh Janssen and Tommy, Talk Show Episode 222. What is happening? Hump Day?
Yeah, Wednesday get around that guy. Yeah, let's talk about the weather yesterday in Melvin.
Is that yeah, it's pouring rain. When I tell you what you could easily just get our This is annoying for my life driving home and be complicated. And then I'm driving down, punt road and on. And what I appreciate about Victoria, is they're creating a lot of a lot of these digital signs that will give you updates about what's coming up. So like, on Napoleon highway now it's like 10 minutes to Southland or 15 minutes to you know, Miranda, or whatever it is, or get off your phone. Are they using him for that
as well. Or
they should just like to specific signs for how long it's going to take you to travel to a certain destination based on traffic. And so there was one on punt road turned on yesterday. And it said, punt road closed at to rock road. And if you're from Melbourne or you've ever been to Melbourne, and been in traffic on pan road, it's horrible, so bad. Just when it's okay on the roads like there's no crash. And then I saw that I called my wife and I said, Can you please Google for me? I was doing the responsible thing. Can you Google punt road closure to wreck road? And she said literally as a mother. She's a woman's been hit by a cyclist has been hit by a truck.
Yeah. And you know anything more like it? When it's so close? You do straightaway. Think about like all the friends you know that a cyclist
said and my mom even called me she's I just want to check your right. She doesn't do that much. But she'd heard that there was a huge crash in the city based around this weather. Yeah. So my point was, I had a I had a moment where I'm like, traffic is not a fucking issue. Yeah, I can get my son and my wife, they're healthy. Someone's died. How
do you try and turn that on all the time? I know, it's because we went to a we were filming at a facility last week, which was like designed for people who have disabilities are on the spectrum,
autism Down syndrome, you know, childbirth, like, so defects and defects each other, some serious like a tear right now that that was such an interesting experience for me, as someone who has had a child. Yeah, I'm a great dad. I've had one baby. And just I said to one of the carers there. Firstly, the people that work in these places, fuck me. Yeah, like such good humans. And I said to this said to the one like all kind of like, hardened. And I had a realisation, being at a place like this, where I've seen people who have had children that quite difficult or had mental challenges like autism, and the parents have seemed quite like, what they've come across is, is rude, or like, they don't put up with the stuff from the kid or they're just a bit angry. And I and I had a realisation, being at these places, where I gained a lot of empathy for the parents that are looking after these kids. And I said this to the carer. And she said, yeah, it's so interesting, as a carer, some of the other carriers See how I'm treating the person that I'm assigned to. And sometimes they from the outside can say, he being a bit made. They're not being me. And this woman was definitely no main bone in her body. But they have
to be firm. They have to be direct
redirect, yeah. And so what that from the outside, when you have don't have a child like this, it can seem like that. So that was one of my learnings from going to a place
like that. And, man, as a dad, it's like far out. It's such a hard time that these parents go through you just I think that you straight away realise how good you have it, but not only how good you have it, how it is just a roll of the dice. Every every day is a roll of the dice. Yeah, it was just people who had that at birth, there are situations where it's like, someone wakes up one day has a brain haemorrhage, or whatever, and all of a sudden has to have the support of you know, a facility or whatever, because they can't just hang out normally during the day. Yeah,
it's full on. I mean, you never know. When you when your Time's up. Yeah, it's such a weird thing. Because it's, you get up and you go through the normal process, but maybe does take the reflection and sometimes going to that dark place of thinking about the reality for yourself. Yeah, to snap you back at how your question was, how do you get there consistently?
How do you do? Do you have to go? You know, Gary van der Chuck, who's the sort of chest pumping? thumping, chest thumping? Isn't he? Yeah, he's got via media came from Wine Library. He's a you would say probably have seen him on social media if you don't know Gary Vee, but he's always talking about the hustle and shit like that. But he talks about what he thinks about when he's feeling sort of down about shit. Not feeling good about work. He's like, what would happen if all my family died? Tomorrow?
Yeah. Which you think would matter? Yeah, that's
like your business doesn't matter, which is a full one thought to have to sort of enter into?
I don't know, I mean, so I'm trying to look at a positive in not living with that thinking every minute of every day. Yeah, I'm trying to look at the positive in getting back into survive in this sort of world that we're in, in this fast paced in sort of, you know, everyone's trying to climb or trying to progress in some places. And we're all, we all enjoy a struggle in some respects. It's what life is, in some ways, not looking at that as a negative, though, I just think it's like it gives it sometimes purpose when you're trying to achieve more. But if you were to, I don't know, if I do shit, doesn't cost anything. I can be bothered. Yeah, riding back to that client or dealing with that hard situation. Because my family, you know, so I don't mind coming in and out of it. But there's always I don't think there's a negative in trying to bring more of it into life.
And I think even on the larger scale, when watching the news and saying all these sort of Doomsday things, especially when all the North Korea ship was really going down. Like maybe a year and a half ago, I was really thinking about like, and it's all going to be like, something's going to happen one day, and it's all going to be over. Yeah. And when you go down that thought it, it can be very productive. But it also can be a big factor as well.
You said intimated I was surprised by thinking you said, what does this all mean? If we're in a in a simulation? office, you got me excited? I'm like, Yes, it's conspiracy. Jimmy talk. You're trying to take over conspiracy Jimmy's thinking, but what you basically were talking about was the matrix and
we have to watch the matrix. Yeah. Because you criticise me, because I haven't seen the film.
Yeah, well, I think it's an old school film. It's one of the greats. And it's like, it is a I don't know if it was progressing for its times 20 something years ago, but the thinking behind the movie, is this simulation, the simulated world, where on the other side is essentially humans, you know, that haven't connected in or if you get out, you basically one of the people that was inside the simulation, and so there's, I just liked that. You're even thinking about that. Cuz, cuz like when she goes wrong in this world, and if it was a simulation, what is it made? it? Well, I was even talking about it, like people who have hardship. It's like, what is the what? How does this happen within the simulation? Is it code gone bad? Or we could think of was someone outsource the code somewhere on the other side in the real world, to some, you know, has no idea about
card and that I fucked it up.
But I've got to tell you that there's
definitely slight different codes, your thumb and my
genetics. Yeah. So you got a we got a Reddit comment, which I thought was good.
Yeah. So I think this is from Santiago, who has some stickers on the way to him right now. So shout out to Santiago. He said. So yesterday's episode to 21. It was called it's all about status. And we delve deep into it. Have a listen,
I can I say I appreciate that. You actively put it up on Reddit, Reddit back?
Well, I mean, there's a post like a day or so before that. And other people have been commenting on the
pit. So there's things happening, but not necessarily us.
Yeah, but we were reading them. And I'm getting back to sound. Good. And Santiago, thank you for reaching out. In response to yesterday's episode, he said, Just talk to a friend who is back home, about the status thing, and how people see her is affecting her ability to make new friends. We graduated from one of the top private universities in Argentina. And then she landed a job at Google there, she is now feeling that she can't truly connect to people. Because there's a misconception that if she is some kind of genius, or she's rich, and she wouldn't want to hang out with them. So weird how perceptions work. So right now she's holding back on talking about her background, or work to be more approachable at first. At work, sorry. It's crazy. So she's fully just like changing a storey or leaving bits out.
I recommend be really hard, say being super rich and trying to date not be impossible, because you'd be thinking about everyone is, is this person into me because of me? Or because I've got a bunch of cash?
Definitely. And I mean, I'm guilty of saying a young, attractive woman with a bunch of cash. What do you think that? Like? I there's one relationship that I know of, and I met her quite a while ago. She's like, she's a juicy supermodel. And she's going out with us. She's going out with his old dude. And I've actually partied with the old dude in LA. And he's going to keep a cash and he was looking after his match. And one of the storeys he did tell me was he was pissed. And he's like, ah, might I am, I had a car. And here in LA, and I got into it. And I was talking about SIPC, when I put into drive, or what I thought was drive, and I put it into reverse and just fucking slammed in the car behind me. And then the cops pulled over. And I don't breath. Oh, you over there back in Australia, to they do the law. The bottom line, they do some sort of tests. That's I called the sobriety. Anyway, they let him off, but that was the storey Tommy, and I think it had something to do with him mentioning something about who he was.
But so what you're saying, though, is you think this chick is with him for money.
It was my initial thought, based on, I guess, it's looking at how she looks, and how old she is, like 20 fucking three or something. And it was like, fifth lights, like mid 50s. But in fairness, I've watched, and he's a really charismatic dude, really, sort of he was, he's a bit sexy. Shy,
he could be a bit sexy, he's definitely good looking blog, he has not got that going for maybe like it could money rub off on you and be like, this bloke isn't sexy. But I if he's, do we allow, and I guess this is probably part of the maybe it's a bit sexist, like, old do like if they've got a bit of a garden of life, but if they're
describing it really.
He's charismatic, he's engaging, when you talk to him, just doesn't have the other stuff going for him and not even the most charismatic. What I would say, though, is I was friends with her on Facebook and him on Facebook. And I saw them together. And they've been together for ages. And they seem really happy. So on that side, and they've just had a kid. And so it's like fact, I am one to judge. And I think it's probably quite natural to look from the outside and think that
but what I am curious about is like, what level they're even thinking about it. So that go girl like he thinking I like this life. This is the life that I want. And I enjoy his company, and I'm enjoying and I love him. Versus I guess maybe is the default thinking that this chick is eventually going to divorce this guy and take him for all these money.
It would be a big Nick, if you were to commit to that. And that's where I give her the benefit of the doubt. I actually sort of
Tommy you know,
yeah, that's why I stop. I look at my own thinking and think fact maybe I am totally wrong. Maybe I've got it totally wrong. Based on movies. I've watched and seeing this play at gold diggers this and gold is that maybe she she initially maybe initially it was the lifestyle the money getting watches and shit. That's about me. We know that they're not definitely not after okay.
better options. They definitely finance industries or something like that. Other than the the artist,
I would struggle but it with someone that there was another agenda.
Like I had some sort of do you think that they definitely not like the idea of the way he positioned? It's as if you like, I would struggle to be with someone with a hidden agenda. I think everyone would struggle with someone who if they had a hidden agenda, but I wonder. Yeah, I mean, that's the point of the hidden bit. If it's a hidden agenda, you don't know there's an agenda. So it's a bit hard to say you. I mean, I would like I think anyone would,
maybe you show it you just like now, I didn't say coming because there's a lot of dudes that have done this. And then, you know, if you would look from the outside, they've had all the money taken from them. Serve them right, they probably just delved into it. But probably they probably didn't think about it.
You get wrapped up in the situation. I think sometimes probably like it too. Isn't there a whole industry of chicks on Instagram, just taking cash from dude. Just like, just because they're like, hey, if you want to be my sugar daddy, like there's a sugar daddy website. Isn't that daddy? The thing? Who's that old dude?
Who Jeffrey lost? Yeah. Is he alive? Still?
Yeah. Yeah, he's, he's alive.
Because he's like this eccentric. This is all allegedly because I don't know anything about him. It's not alleged that he's eccentric. He's, but he's like, was he a surgeon or a dentist or some?
Hang on? I'm pretty sure he was behind bulk billing. Really? Hang on, Jeffrey. We don't have Mr. Jeffrey. It'll stern.
Bulk. How can you be so bulk billing for people outside of Australia? Can you describe what bulk billing is?
It we go hang on. So bulk billing. So for instance, I don't have a heap of money in my bank account. And it costs a lot to go to a private doctor to just say this is my child. Is he sick? No, he's not sick. Hundred and 20 bucks, please. So the it's a MIDI MIDI bank or sorry? Medicare. So Medicare is like a government run agency within Australia. Yeah. Which you can use.
Every Australian hasn't done
every Australian can get you need to be Australian citizen. Yeah, I think to get it. But Jesus, this photo of Jeffrey back in
its public. So it's like public health. It's always public health, is it? We don't know anything.
You basically you get free doctor's appointments and check out this. Why do the bulk billing so someone pays for just not you? Yeah. And so it's part of your Medicare
Do you reckon I could have so about seven years or six years ago? I had an ingrown toenail and gotta gotta cut it out. For me it cost you 600 bucks.
I don't think you get that bulk billing. You could get that you could be on a list for public hospital like really think about someone who cannot afford 600 bucks. Yeah.
And die. He like he didn't. He didn't. Apparently the podiatrist is a bit. Everyone loves a bit of health check. The podiatrist said that they meant to put some sort of liquid on it that sort of stops the little from growing back like the ingrown. Yeah. And so what I have now this is really gross. So turn it off if you're not into it, guys, but every three months I have this on the side of my toenail. I have this little thing that sort of just grows and I can get tweezers and bring it so far. If I ever use I pull it out. It's like a little feel it feels like a real soft material. Anyone can relate and hide the daily talk show.
Post your friends in post, you
know, stuffer, Jeffrey ittelson Oh, so you know, just quickly if someone posts a photo of their ingrown toenail? No if they don't post it, right if they send it to hide the daily talk show.com and they put a piece of paper on it with I love the daily talk show. I'll give them $50 well you You didn't lose your 50 bucks from say why oh, you thought it was just not listening to the show? stickers Yeah. And they got free tickets but they did they they never told me that they listened to the show. Okay,
let's get back to Jeffrey Alastair 50 bucks. He was born May 2 1943 is an Australian medical entrepreneur who founded allied Medical Group. Okay, so we didn't found about Bob Dylan, but I will say this, following the establishment of Mary Kay by the whole government. In 1984. Edelstein began to run innovative and multi discipline disciplinary discipline letter writing lightly that 24 hour medical centres, which were forerunners of modern corporate medical practices, decorated with chandeliers, white grand pianos and mink covered examination tables. The clinic's attracted considerable media attention at Wilson's clinics with a first in Australia to bulk bill patients to Medicare so that they include no direct cost. Within four months of opening the first clinic was dealing with 2000 patients every week. ittelson eventually owned 13 medical centres in which approximately 20,000 patients and consultants saw 200 doctors every week. Do he had a pink? He had a fucking pink helicopter at one stage. He's a sugar daddy. He are in the city Swan so bring it at Austin was his wife they got
him was at my wedding.
Did you know that what the fuck is OK, let's say
Brynn. analyst well, Brynn golden is a surname was married to this guy who we're talking about Jeffrey and also my best my race. Yeah, who you know. Yeah. So Reese's godfather? Rob Menzies. Yeah, good mate of mine. Yeah, he's also a good friend of brains. And so I said, obviously give him Robert plus one to my wedding. And he brought Brynn I've hanging out with bring I've gone out with Brynn. with Rob, we've had dinner. It is a
lie. I've actually worked with Brynn before heavy Yeah, I filmed Fox FM's really good wedding, where they would determine they picked someone who wanted to get married. And they had to spin a wheel. And this is a radio stand to spin a wheel. And wherever it landed on they would decide on certain parts of the wedding. So for instance, they would say where is the location going to be of the wedding? Yeah. And it was the options of like you could be on an island or could be nice places. And one of them on this wheel was at a like an animal like an animal shelter. Oh, yeah. So what someone's gonna have a wedding. And they ended up having the wheel landed on that and they the people had a fish and chip like a potato cake. Wedding Cake. It was the biggest joke and I found that I felt so sad. But I think that there was a trying to remember what brings row was spinning the wheel. No she wasn't spinning the wheel someone you know what I think that curly haired footy manager that when Ricky Nixon rich, I have a feeling retreat Siddiqi, Ricky, I feel like Ricky Nixon was selected by the wheel to walk the ride down the aisle.
I have a feeling radio in some
others, but that but bringing it all was there for some reason. Yeah. And, but there was I thought she was very likeable. She's super
sweet. She's super sweet. And I used to go to Dancing with the Stars, and do Vox pops for the rush hour for the triple M for the triple m rush hour. And that's where I because my friend Rob was the producer of that whole show that show. And so he got me in and I look around the after parties and mingle, ate the food, drink the free peace, talk to the celebs. And she was on the show that year that I was right in the midst of it. But she was married to this guy the whole time. I've known she wasn't married. But the time that I was at what he called CHANNEL SEVEN there to watch the live recording of Dancing with the Stars. I was sitting with Jeffrey and his mom. And so his mum's alive. That was at the time his mom made money through laundry business like old school, wealthy family. It's always one of those. He's a bit like the Trump in that no one knows a bit actually has any money left but he says yes. One of the other similarities between Trump and allegedly I just get nervous the legend
I'm saying it is because what they made money
no there was Andre the community there was a community radio station they got sued by I mentioned this previously by the mayor of July on the pepper artsy, do you have seen anything that bad? I know. But I just thought wouldn't it be it'd be pretty outrageous if if we just said you know like Jeffrey's actually got is a bit like Trump's got no money.
A bit like Trump people. Yeah. Yeah, exactly. And say they will say that actually have money. He's driving around in Bentleys and shit, and he hasn't been happy. Does he have any cash? We don't know. But the other alleged I had even having the
thing is that I actually would never sit like the idea that someone Sue's This is fucking hilarious. But it was a community station. That's why I get like we are playing in this realm. It's a legit similarity the Trump Trump has Trump with
as you said, allege I don't think you have to transmit married years and years ago. Yeah. I can say allegedly because I'm not reading the information in front of me that I can pass blame onto paid people to come to his wedding. So he paid I think when I paid Hillary Clinton Yeah, there's a photo of them waiting crazy. Then you're up against this was before he even was dabbling in the you know, political circles. Brynn and Jeffrey got married, she was longer and invite heaps of Melbourne identity. So you taught a Trump still got an invite, but it's alleged that he's he paid his family to attend.
This it was that it was at Crown is a sense of sadness. what that is. It is
totally sad. So this is what was it say here it says, Jeff paid us sitcom stars. Jason, are you paid us? I said us we're fucking idiot. Paid USC com star Jason Alexander and Fran Drescher to act as MCs of the wedding. But bring the ledges then not the only faces paid to be there. So this is Brynn coming out airing dirty laundry. It wasn't just friend Jason.
This is my makeup so much. She's
some gel. This is from Brynn some of Jeff Jeff's relatives were paid to be at the wedding. Full on. And it's all a show. And I mean, to be honest, I saw brain and when they got together I was like, whew, fucking serious. This young girls going out with this dude, surely that's about money. We didn't think she got any money though.
Really. So a prenup or something? The This is the closest by getting to celebrity gossip. I reckon. How's it feeling? Look, it's it's stretching my knowledge of all of this stuff, but it's okay.
update on Friday.
Yeah, we were doing fat Friday
is a fact. Fridays, Fridays plural. Yeah, it's a benchmark. It's every Yeah,
Fridays. It's what was it? I just got a hesitant because I I heard you sort of stopping on Fridays Friday, Friday, as I don't know which one is it? But it's fat Fridays? Yeah. Perfect. Yeah.
So fat Fridays is a thing that we now do, which is on Friday, we will try and incorporate food in some regard. Be fattening? Exactly. I mentioned it to on air. I didn't even message Russkies who listens to the show. But I thought this sounds like something Russ would get behind. Yeah. And he's been on the DMZ. He's organised a table for us at easy's the burger joint across the road. We have
a competitor What is it called a competitive?
I'll tell you his Instagram handle. I'll first say he's got 160,000 followers. That's crazy. He's doing better than the the daily talk show. He's handle is Hulk smash food. And he's bio reads number one ranked Australian professional competitive
fuck yeah. Yes. title. And so Russell's hooked us up with Hulk. And he's going to be with us on Friday. And maybe we can get him to do some form of
demo. If he's competitive eating. I mean, you have haven't ever had to be paid to eat but or in a competition to wait you've just eaten. What's your skill level? Like are you are you just love food? But are you a fast eater?
Like I could do? You want to have spoken about this? One of my favourite things is the feeling of being so full. You feel sick? Yeah. That's it's a bit probably blaming. I don't want to vomit. But that for too many nachos. Yeah, he's the feeling I crave. Do you think it's the speed at which you ate? Because I've seen I think you ate quite quickly just on in general, especially if you're hungry. I think we all do, but I've noticed you do a lot. And like two bites. It's fucking going on. Whoa, what did you say the chicken. We were on a shoot with Nando's today. And we're I'm trying to be a bit leaner with what I'm eating preparing for fat Fridays. And so you said you said to me before we went there. You said now I said there's probably going to be some catering. Yeah. And you said, Yeah, just don't have the chippies. Yeah, and unfortunately, at the beginning, I say it because I don't want to have them either. Yeah, but we both at the tippy. tippy because the chippies were the first thing they brought out, but then the lovely cat who works at she's the PR. What did she do?
She's head honcho, the head honcho of the social media.
That's right. And so cats I don't you guys want to get your burgers or whatever? Like, what do you what do you want? And we landed on? I let us that was like, Ah, you like it? We could just get some chicken. Why do you think we're, you know, we're paid to be there for our services of production. Plus, we don't need the carbs.
And you don't need to be holding a burger out at a shoot. I think this is the little tenders. It's not. So you used to let them down.
Yeah, but you would have seen me eating them. I actually didn't see you. Put it in the back. It's also fun quick, because I have shelving that I shelving, by the way, I never knew what shelving was. Until so shelving is just let them look it up. shelving is putting stuff up your ass. You knew that? Go back to exactly what I knew at 10 know the reason that actually you because Jules Lund that. He had a radio show faith angels. And he got in trouble on from the producers for making a shelving joke on. And I didn't understand it. And then I now when people say I will just shelve that idea for later. I have a bit of a giggle. But my point is, is the the chicken I didn't want to get sticky fingers from from the Perry Perry source. Yeah. So I was eating of it like I was, I was using the pick. And I'll pick it out like a snap the chicken. And then I would grab it with my teeth and then and just ate the whole thing. Yeah.
Just quickly before we wrap up. Yeah. We were talking with Craig hopper today. We're on Craig happens podcast tomorrow. Yeah.
I'm not sure when he's putting it out. But every Thursday, I think you put some Is that right? Yeah,
fact we better get it over to you. So we're on his podcast. And before we were talking to him about just opening that door. You know, it's like for you for him. He's talked about the cheese cake. And I've almost tried to bully him into eating cheesecake.
Yeah. Was that on the show? This was this was this day and M early morning just arrived at the cafe
is there like and so his thing is he loves cheesecake so much he's been he's an ex fat guy. And if he just goes there is it just opens it up. Domino. Is that for you, too? Yeah, absolutely. So So for instance, Friday we're eating at ease will probably be eating by 1230. What happens after that? shady meal,
I think that I'm good in that regard. If I'm really deliberate with it, and I say fried like I got into cheat days for a while. From the Four Hour Body where I'd go
You went hard on the diet on the on a cheat day. But the thing was that it was sort of like I would wake up early and go to bed at midnight. I'd be up at six and I have m&m
maximise the at the waking hours.
I maximum amount of calories. Yeah,
it was pretty. Unlike if I'm gonna I remember specifically waking up to one of those buckets of m&ms, like went out into the lounge and just started eating him. Okay.
It's so that's that's an eating disorder.
Yeah, I mean, that's dying. I think you can do cheating cheat days.
I cheat meals. I think I think that this on Friday, having like tater tots or whatever they call the tops with mac and cheese. Yeah. And a burger. And maybe that's my one meal of the day. And the other thing too, I don't know. I don't know if this is a thing, but I drink a glass of water. Whenever I drink water. I feel like it's sort of for every thousand calories. If I have like four litres of water at all, like I'm just gonna fat and it's gonna push it out of the system. And so you if you open the door, you think you can control it, but you can't have it as I it can be I can have a sheet meal. I just can't have a sheet. I just need to be intentional about it. I need to say I am intentionally. I am not someone who orders this all the time. But right
now I'm having it. Yeah. It's interesting. I Seibel Yeah. And I feel sick and I start fat. And
so yeah, we need to you need to get your storey ready. And maybe even video if you have it. On Friday. You've said you've done some form of compete, competitive vaping Yeah, yeah. Keep it. Keep it for all my gronk a daily talk show. Hi the daily talk show.com if you want to send us an email or the daily talk show dot Reddit com. TJ is posting up every single episode now I think so.
