It's a daily Talk Show Episode 315 and I'm gonna kick your ass
Cold Steve Austin that's an old WWE reference if I've ever heard one
he's got a podcast stone called real it Yeah. post malone was on my mate post who you saw me talking with in New York. He was on there. You just heard my headphones. I never do that again
trying to work out which ones might there we go kick your ass
number two. But yeah, it's good a successful podcast.
Everyone What is it? It sounds good now so everyone's got a podcast? Well, they
I used to wear black speedos.
fight my brother.
He wrestled like would pretend pretend to be Stone Cold Steve Austin and
you did you have to wear the black lights? Did you have to get down to Andy?
Well, that's what he would wear. I know he would wear that. But he was a
solid white lifting. Big bastard.
Did you ever watch wrestling growing
growing up? Like because we didn't have Fox tail and a half even though we should have? We're in the suburb where kids had Fox tail. Brighton, but we didn't. So what we'd have to do is stay up really late. They had WWE fried away at like 12:30pm and I just remember battling trying to stay up past 12 you know was like a real hard task. Coffee wasn't in my world. I was like whatever I know I'm but I had my mate sleeping over and would stay try our hardest then fall asleep at when it started.
Did you play the PlayStation game? Yeah,
yeah. I love that. That was good fun.
97 was Skype. Sorry. Not skateboarding. Wrestling wrestling a thing
for your generation watching it on TV?
Yeah, just Yeah, but we never had Fox
River. What would you watch?
ABC three. Kids on Kids TV.
Yeah. Okay. Were you watching my friend Cain?
nachos. My friend won a competition to become the kids. Host of host of a kids show
from ww f1.
But I got into it. It's the full royal rumbles I used to hire VHS tapes from the video store masons just freaking out over there. But
I did used to hire those the Royal Rumble now.
had some news, Mr. 97 starting his own podcast. Yeah, it's um, might tell us a little bit about what you what you doing.
He's meant to go with the April Fool's joke, but he just
realized I was just trying to think of other potential I was trying to work out. What was that you doing an April Fools.
One that was? Today's April Fool's. By the way, if you're listening, if you're in the future, it's not probably isn't. But today is the day in Australia.
And we had Derek before you came in Mr. 97. Derek sat down and he said, You guys haven't signed the papers for your lease yet. Have you? We said, we have he said our Victoria, you probably want to try and see if you can get out of it. Because Victoria straight is about to have a huge precinct and everyone's leaving,
and going lots of changes. And I started I started pressing him hard. I felt like it was in a deposition as I might, what do you mean? What are these chains? I read them somewhat know. If you read something, what was the something and he he was just evading that question. And it turned out he was punk? Yes. Because it was April Fool's. But yes, that is something else. We have got the lace. Yes, we got it. And that's not an April Fool's joke that we have.
So we're the big
media company HQ is relocating in about a month's time. That's fucking exciting. But do we want to announce that on the April Fools because people just probably won't take it seriously. Well, you?
Did you do any April Fools when you're a kid?
I can't remember doing it as a kid. I'm sure I was just pranking kids, but I just prank people in general. Like I didn't more often than not, but in shepherd. And when I was on the radio, it's like a classic thing. You work in the media, you work for a brand. businesses like to do it, get behind it, use it as a marketing tool. We did it in chef and so candy. My co host had quit. And so there was a period of time where I was on the radio by myself. So no, it's so bad. Doing radio by yourself.
I reckon I would thrive. I think just talking to myself.
Yeah, but you're not there to do that surpass seven, everyone you should be on? I am I am writing. I know. FM
beautiful morning, isn't it?
Yeah. So I did all of that like, but you'd go into a song. So you just deliver a piece of information about the local town. What happened on the weekend? I did a whole bunch of like, interviews with local people by myself. So I actually had some fun. Yeah, I did. I did, you know, utilize the time. Well, but there was a there was a wake way a day where I got in somebody who I announced. And I teased it from like 6am till seven. I was like, we've got the new co host that's going to be joining me on the show. Fuck I saw this was a breaks Yeah. Briggs. You know, he's killing it now. He's fucking superstar pop star in a hip hop actor. And he's from Sheridan. And so I was made with him. I we've done some stuff together in on the radio. And so I called him like, dude, can you come in? Will punk people tell people that you are my new co host? We launched it at seven. You stay till eight, whatever. And it was great. It was fucking amazing. He rocks out he packs in the managers cast on an angle. And then we're going to fight off that and then he came on a bit. People were like, no, this couldn't be and then there's other people like fucking This is amazing.
problem. The problem with doing an April Fool's joke is that it is so good. Yeah, I don't think too good news. Because it's
like you if you're being sarcastic. You need to understand this sarcasm there or
no as in if it's going to be an April Fool's joke. The customers can't think this is the best thing to ever happen. Okay,
because bit some It was like half half I reckon.
Okay. Because there would have been a lot of people who would like Yes, finally you guys are doing something for the show. Yeah,
yeah. Sorry to break it to you don't want it to backfire on on you. That's what she said. Yeah, that's interesting. Well, there is one that I saw this morning. So I'm flicking through my Facebook feed and it got me because I thought Look at this. Guzman and Gomez have released a new a saying I think it's good money. Gomez. All right, big fella. No worries. That is my title is Manny Gomez. Yeah. Okay, so goes Manny Gomez ever released a new burrito. And it's the old walk Breda. So it's just got this photo of this burrito, just guacamole flying out of it. And it says $1 and then I read the small print. And this is it. Actually, I had to read the small print before I realized
what was going
on before I realized it wasn't a perfect, it says an old gronk burrito contains 24 standard servings of guacamole $2 per serving
by $2 per serving. So how much he made 24 $48 $48
for a burrito that is completely full of guacamole and so this is the thing right they put it in the fine print so that if people do want to try it they can go in restore and order this this thing this has your name written all over it. Now I'm going to do this for lunch. We're going to get a $48 guacamole Phil burrito from Guzman the government's
What do you guys money government?
I gotta write
g y g. So
yeah, where's the closest one
it's halfway to my house and there's one in like South Yarra there's one in Hawthorne, Hawthorne All right. What
other I was asking you before this no seven other companies and what they're doing for
yeah pretty good for well news.com released an article on them there's home loans for dogs is a releasing hormones for dog
it's not a fast stretch they give you they were giving hormones to every man and these dogs at one point Audible for fish
audible audible like the audio Amazon
delivery ditch the pizza crust
temporarily on the order pizza crap okay
on like say if you ordered pizza from anywhere crust is gone
yeah was it was a mistake but yeah
we understand its
origin said that they're going to go to the sun and capture it for solar power for the planet remember the origin origin energy energy kinda in Sydney's wildlife Zoo announced that they hired a
senior been chicken caper
bean chicken is like a type of
it's a it's an idea bird to Sydney is a New South Wales I've got these long bakes and they absolute sky rats and they just get their nose into being the HPV it's fucking disgusting that's that's literally that is
I remember that I had to in school they had to do a lot of
around this time of year specifically sort of grade one grade to the big April Fool's joke. It was more practical jokes and actual proper April April Yeah, jokes and I remember I don't know if this is a role or mom just said it. Probably just said it. It had to be before 11am interesting. Did
you ever hear can you actually look at the history of april fools?
Do we know what the
rules I have no idea where it came from? Or what the rules are
but it got very dangerous at our school because everyone would pull the car under
underneath I actually have heard that the dicing like what tablet I am so so we need this we didn't get this this is a breakfast burrito that we're going to have
so men on April Fool's thing them they're trying to April fools are turning it back on they might
is free rock up and it's after 11am
that was a funny thing. So I screen captured this because I couldn't find it after
really you think
I've already gotten rid of it? I think it was a sponsored post that's why I was like if I learned anything from Josh at screen capture everything you should see the amount of screen captures in this
screenshot so stream
screen captures on max so you actually a screen capture it like isn't it?
Anyway, this is not an April Fools.
It's very annoying for my son.
He's got herpes.
What do you mean? He's got cold sores he's fucking inherited. from me.
I read the worst thing he could have inherited along with my
Can you have a look at my lip? Do you reckon I've got the start of a call. So let me have a look.
Look, baby boy. That doesn't look like it.
Do you get cold? I don't think so. The thing is, I don't know. If I did share your member The other day I had my coffee. What's that thing called? SMS? SMS? Yes,
thermos. Can we spell thermos?
famous? That's not a spelling it 97
whatever. Anyway, we share the service. But this is why I this is what I sent to my brother. It's a beautiful little photo of my son you probably can't see it if you're watching, but I just said
is so cute. He's just got the biggest smile on his face. I'll show it for people. There's the there's the actual photo. me know how beautifully such a cutie and I just wrote when you're two years old and your first cold so but have no idea of the insecurity ahead? Because that's what you face when you got gronk slightly is that a saying? Can you catch it from the thermos that you were drinking? Number one I didn't have a cold so that day, so there's no chance of you getting cold so all right. So you don't get them from people that don't have cold souls at the time. All right. You may actually have it and you know, don't know it comes out later in life. But yeah, there's
what you put on it for him. Did you put some No No,
Just Amy get herpes
Nasheed now she says it was
real as real impact doesn't it when you say that? She
doesn't get it, but you do.
Yeah, I bet I was born with it. I've got you know, I've got photos of me when I was a little kid. I just like I'm so cool when mom or dad I
don't know. I don't know. Does your mom or dad get herpes?
Not none of them but both of them don't get colds
settle down with the with the age talker. I but I said the reason I just wonder like
as a kid there was it was such an insecurity of mine when they came up like it just over talk. Maybe I was just a complete narcissist thought that everybody Yeah, even more so. But I think he's just there's so much wrapped up in your identity like look at your childhood is the fat kid like that's
your don't like that. But I had I used to get eaten alive by mosquito on your ranch them and mom would say
you're going to be the school sorts kid.
I didn't even know really what that meant.
My mom took a different approach. She would give me a kiss on the lips to make me feel better. Really. She's like
she's never got she never got them. But I get it. It's like she kissed you on the lips. We feel so gross. And she just give me a little peck on the lips. Like
while you have the
Do you understand it though? Because I understand myself. Like if he's feeling really horrible, like, you want to sort of comfort them in some way. It's like It's okay, darling. He's like, you know, it's like a they're not afraid. So you're not like the monster.
Like Julian said that you feel like your head is 20 times bigger or something. He said something that stood out to me is like youth because he gets into it. You feel like everyone's fucking looking at your face and your head. It's like you it becomes bigger. It's gonna be
it's so true that for my kid to just have a little bit of glad rap.
might lose its impact, but
just I don't I haven't had one for years. And so I'm glad that they're going away. But I just hope that it isn't bad for him. So anyone else
him horrible. Horrible times. Either way. I need your help from your dad about plants. Oh, yeah. The plant King. Yeah. Well, we're trying to break once you get plants for our players. Yeah. Or can the worst. There's certain places that it doesn't even trigger you. And the brain knows when there's a period between me being annoyed Yep. Like actually getting too annoyed and working my way up to annoyed that break and identify. And she'll then say you annoyed with 10 tips me over the edge of being annoyed or you I can tell you don't want to be here. What's wrong? Well, yeah, well, it's at the went to the market like it market general went to like this botanic plant market on the weekend on Janssen strike.
That sounds super hip.
Yeah. But the thing is that you've got this small like way in a city. So all these plants in this one room. And it's sort of the way that the format of the market setup is is
just stalls all around like you're on a racing track like you sort of in this loop and you have to sort of go along that way user experience you just
getting taken through all that and you come at the end of three grants with the plans.
The thing is, do you think that we're doing a disservice by trying to buy plants in a city wouldn't we better be better off going to like officer or fuckin Barrick you're going to a nursery
well you need to have access to my dad's account. He has like a lot of trade accounts or you have like your you know, you use this certain provider so add an officer I've been to that it's like plant models I just guessed there is one out and officer sick and get some for all these for all these jobs and so fully decked
out new office a couple of little what's the plants that you said that I needed?
Snake plants devils devils I think the amount of time I heard someone say what you need is definitely a heavy someone said as this like you know what? We're all just saying the same
want the same fucking plant? Yeah surely
How the fuck have we gotten to the point where we're all like we're all the same?
Yeah, like literally 97 says get to the devil's Ivy now under
the devil's Ivy
It was very naughty you if you are buying plants in the city they are going to be much more
that's what I thought so you're better off just going to office that will get you
cute, but if you The problem is the time spent it's like buying something a bit more expensive so you don't have to have the grounds of driving off 4550 minutes one way potentially not knowing anything. This is where Yeah, let's we need my dad to do it.
But the other thing too is Bray was planning what we bought so that it matched our fake planned surely we should just get rid of the fucking fake plan.
definitely get rid of this isn't a takeaway from from the whole experience.
The thing is if you have real plants in there, there's a high chance it will look fake it look really fun. Whereas if it's just there it's just a big greenery whatever we killed a fake plant somehow we had a fake mountain to that it just went to shit it looked like it looked like we watering it but it was plastic and it still looked fact we kill the fake plant I don't know how you do that. But there is so that's an investment because you need to then water it that is for our office if we spend like I spend in here in this space where now I spent 260 bucks something on plants do you see any plants ran
he say one really sad looking the devil's Ivy is that the devil's Ivy it's a fig leaf figure
I killed every other one it wasn't enough light
the space way we're moving to this that top floor with a balcony it's sick because we can put them out there to get some sun some water and I think Mr. 97 he's he's water the plants in this building in my in this office and so we can along with all these other things
there wasn't any can put you in there you said I'm putting can butcher and if there wasn't any indication that it was a premature April Fools
sparkling waters good though.
Is it like
I know we did so we were drinking favorite sparkling water Andy and then we were putting some old sparkling water and I said is putting sparkling water on plants Okay. And then he did a research into research found did a research research and found it fucking Lynn Janssen over here. Sorry. Sorry for this guys. I don't know that much. Yeah, it's you've kept it down since I last went hard on you for doing and I appreciate that. But we found there was some study that heart carbon or something. He grew twice as fast. I don't we don't need it to things to grow faster. We just need to
So maybe the cabinet of borders and I got did you find out about April Fool's mission? I said yeah. No
pranks after midday.
Okay, after me, David, find out the origins of April Fools. Not just got looking at the rules. Okay. One rule
is that if and then the other ones do nothing illegal or do no harm. Okay.
Well, who was Manny Gomez? That burrito might make me shake my head.
I don't think it's like
weekends. What is the what is the weekend main fit for you at the moment
and looking after a child full time?
And what about? That's Bodie. Yeah.
Well, because we haven't he's at daycare when working. And so there is a sort of a shift. It's lovely. It basically means just going to the pool going to the park.
Does he like being inside?
Yeah, he needs he needs something to do.
Okay, so you couldn't say today? Let's stay inside
yet. Because Bry won't even let me do that. Like I tried it like on a Sunday. You. You understand? So I want to stay inside? Yeah. And so I did. There was a we always Sunday seems to be the chores like the like where we're doing all the chores.
Because it's the last day the way
you look at life. But I am. I just feel like Sunday can be a little bit anxiety. There's always a little bit of anxiety and Sunday. So what? Well, that was the day that we went to the plant market. That's one thing, but there's a lot of pressure that you need to use up your Sundays. You need to do a lot of stuff. Yeah. And I just want to, I was sort of setting up to read and with my phone addiction. There's this mix of I like basically scroll through Instagram. I feel like there's nothing left me to do. And I'm like, Okay, I'm ready. I'm great. And as I went to get my book, brace it, I will go to do the washing, which is fine. It was just a timing point of view. So you flipped it? Well. No, I didn't flip it. I was like, You know what, the way that I've started to flip it has been like Okay, I'm gonna do it right now.
So you're doing what she says
well, but we're but
I have no I can't be reasonable in that moment. So I put everything in the washing blacks and whites. And then stuff came out gray and then she got angry I said you can't get angry me because I'm just doing the washing
was this like when I had a go at you for putting your bag in the middle of the fucking walkway behind this wall was like you actually can get in unless you step over that then your excuse. There's there's you always you've always got an excuse.
That's because it seriously feels like the thing The reason I put my bag anywhere is because there's nowhere to put my bag
and my bags to be my bag. So many places to put your bag around here Mr. 97 finds a place for his bag. I've got his here that specifically for bag. But no I get it but it is a very like it's a child approach may just like the
annoying thing is I did the homework. I did the whole Washington's Yeah,
but you put the blacks in.
Yeah. And so what's your what's your take on Sunday? Do you find I have
will blow up so
No, because if you haven't worked out some sort of ritual, then there's it's fraught with you just wanted to read which is a fan. First thing to do literally said, as I was doing the Washington like, we're going to get a little whiteboard and what, what our chores are? Yeah, put our initials next to them. I like that because my thing is I actually love doing chores. The thing is, it's never when Bry asked me to do the chores, it's not an ideal time. But is
it? So if you love chores, have you actually come up with a system or a time that you do each week? That gets them done? Well,
besides just leaving until the last thing Sunday?
Well, that's my system is lighter than my break specs.
But then there's there's no system you just forget, like if you fell asleep and then woke up with all we need Indians. Yeah. So yeah, we on Sundays, we we usually prep food, which just means that we're both up for and we've both started doing some cleaning. I mean, we're just trying to factor around when bodies asleep or if he's gone mad or not.
And sorry, how much meal prep are you doing on a Sunday? How many days?
Yeah, it was like we've got stuff still prep from week ago. That is just in the freezer. But we're doing probably like this week, we've got nearly every meal for dinner and lunch
prep. And that's good
for Monday to Friday, because then the weekends, we just get a bit loose, we have a eggs and just yeah, have a takeaway and do all that shit. So it is, but it's such a good time to do it.
when we were at the shops, I became sort of very into the idea of how much money can we save on everything.
What I'm to why is that funny? 97 continue. So what I'm not sure on is like, everything was up for discount, like Bry was getting some tomatoes, and she got them in a pack like smaller tomatoes. It was
Yeah, $3 60.
And then I said, Let's get like two big tomatoes. It costs us $1 30. So that was a great saving. The one area that I'm not sure on, which I want to see get your take on it use me. So I got 800 grams, I was making a chili con con Yay. Good. And like during the week, and I got
800 grams for 10 bucks, not grass fed the grass. If I want to get the same amount of damage grass fed, it was gonna cost 20.
So what I'm wondering is, in those moments, should I do you think price? I should go price for something, I got money,
and we got money? Well,
yeah, I could always spend the money. But I think I could always save the money too.
I think it's if they're two different things. If you've got the money, and you want to be ethical, get the grass fed. If you don't have the money
for the big one,
go the cheap one. You need to feed yourself. Like this is where it's like you need to work out the the basis of this cut this conversation. Why are you saving money? Like what are you cooking?
What I'm paying for the Sam Harris app?
we'll start using it. If I 17 bucks a month, maybe even more 50 stay bucks a week or something? I don't know. 150 bucks?
What do you think? 97. So with with eggs very easy. Never go cage eggs. But with the
I don't know who's promoting that they've got cages I don't see it as much
as bag and you'll say guys,
we got cage eggs over here. You
want to pick us maybe you don't know that I'm promoting? sloppy, I
gets so boring when we're just talking about food. I think it's like the conversation if you if you go in knowing what you're going to make for the week. That's the different conversation.
So you would get the cheap before the expensive beef
at the moment, I'd probably get the trade better. Okay, thank
But sometimes I get the expensive stuff.
So well, the white the way that I do it is just finding a balance. So like with with those eggs that are around the corner from my house, like you look for the ones that are still like high quality and ethical. But the change so I end up just going to all these different places in food. So I mean, you could like end up bulk buying a bunch of meat and just freeze. freeze it all I tell you when you can get real ethical stuff. Yeah.
Bulk buying is where it's at. I think we go to officer. I think we do a monthly trip to officer. We buy our plants.
You buy our beef, beef stores out there. On the farm, you get wholesale base wholesale base, not from the farm not only go to the I spy.
Yeah. I mean, the further you go out deeper things become
to get deal.
Deal facts and food chat. It's
do in the office. Do you think we really could we
could grow hers? We have a balcony. I mean, the sky's the limit. Now I think there's actually a
reason for it. Now what is that called? What is that thing that's
like a sun shade? Yeah, there is a sunshine, which is still it's a shade. What's
your push back on food? Who's mentioned that we
just talked, I don't know how we get in these conversations about.
We're at the supermarket, and I'm there. And I'm looking at the tomatoes and
we speak about foods show, man. So
that was my was like, really? My whole weekend was
No, seriously. No, I know. I think what was interesting is I texted you, and then you're like, hey, mate, I'm gonna put my phone away in five minutes. I mean, maybe don't bring it.
So the one thing was I also didn't have my phone because I took it to Apple. And they replaced it because I wasn't working for that
would hold it to me like
that. But the thing is, it happened. It happened that way where it was like, I'm like, I'm not gonna have a no phone day. Yeah. And then I said to Bray, I was like, I need to go and get my phone fixed at the Genius Bar. Yeah. And then they it's turned out that. I mean, this is a very rare occasion. The Genius Bar had an opening at south wind
I heard was I went to Southland that's better than your dollar 20 saving on tomatoes. Something that's non food related, but he's retail I reckon Maya is going out of business. You reckon?
Of course they are never as in like a
priori very, very soon, soon, because they've gotten rid of all their was at the wood on the windows. It's like the app it can you look it up nice seven as well, my going out of business, but the
there was I'm just saying, What are you
Well, I just wanted to get I was getting into something about the phone stuff. Do you want to do that? So I when I messaged you, you said you're off the phone. Oh, that's pretty good. Appreciate like, I commend you, who was a phone addict to have a day off? Yeah. And then I posted a photo. This was like an hour or two later, maybe two or three hours later. And it was on my personal Instagram, I get a notification every time you post. But you wouldn't have your phone on you because it's a finalists set of that. And so I post this photo, and it's a ferris wheel in St Kilda, and I just put a status that said the Ferris wheel was invented by a bloke named George Ferris in the ninth in the 1890s. That piece of history may come in handy one day during a game of trivia.
Did you Google that? I googled that because
I was like, What do I write for this? I love this photo of the Ferris wheel. I'll add a piece of information here that could serve people one day or not. And that's what I did. But then I get a response from the daily talk show, which is an account that I have access to. Mr. 97 has access to and Josh Janssen has access to Yes. And it said from the daily talk show he only spent four hours a week working on it to the Tim Ferriss joke, and was that he missed in 9797
would be able to come up with which that that happened within two minutes of I was actually in my when I wrote that.
And so the so you didn't have a phone? Because you responded to my
Yeah, no, I I'm working towards the phone last Saturday. So in the morning, it was like I think on Friday night praying I realized how long would spend on our phones.
What was the catalyst
of not being
on our phone like watching Netflix or whatever? Are you saying like just scrolling? Yeah, I'm like, you know, I actually I think it was the other thing was Friday morning. I mentioned this to Mr. 97. My eye was twitching uncontrollably. And so I was just doing this just pulsing. And I was like fuck, I think I'm spending too much time looking at screens. And so I do actually the dream is to get to the point where they
I completely like have a Saturday off maybe a Sunday off even during the day. I'd like to have it on Do Not Disturb. How would you feel about if I had it on Do Not Disturb during a workday
way over in the same office. I mean it like I think you're kidding yourself though. I think it has to be awake. I think our job this is the whole pushback. Even Russkies sent a lengthy email about how you keep saying you're off social media, but you're not off social media and I agree with Ross
you're not off social media. Dude. We had this conversation last week. You're on social media and it's okay. What's not okay is if it's eating into your personal time and you're feeling she's about it, then it has to stop
but it's more it more just feels like a little bit of a like you've gone from talking about food. pushing back on food to talk about my social media retirement which from an annoyance point in which directions more annoying 97
What's more, what's more annoying?
I was gonna answer Yeah, what's more annoying retirement or food?
In what are you annoyed Josh talking about social media more? Yeah.
Which one is my
more annoying try my food chat? Or my everyone needs to wait
to chat though. Cuz this is still
bargains in any love that stuff?
Yeah. So he's all for it.
So we are we working out which more annoying thing you should get? Or about. That's annoying in itself.
In regards to the in all seriousness with the social media thing, I want
you to just fucking take hold of it by the balls and do one of the things that you say you're going to do? Sure. Why not? No, I like that.
No, it's great.
I don't think during the week though, we get to work in the office. The thing is, if you haven't a computer, you've got a message. You've got fucking pop up Slack, like everything is just consuming you.
Well, I think that the Instagram stuff I do enjoy. I think there's definitely something in an hour a day, an hour, just like a very specific hour or even on my time. Yeah.
Yeah. cut that down.
Yeah, half an hour a day. It all works. If you do it like that. And you structure it like them. Like, it's hard because you are so good at giving advice. And your your advice is always so strategic, and, and thoughtful. Yeah. And you don't apply this to this specific stuff.
do you sort of feel at the same time, like I always feel and this is the band pin, which is it's like the the thing I'm doing now, like I'm a little bit detached too, because I love a rebrand. So part of it is like, you know what? This the same approach to my eating is with social media, which is like, I know, it's got an email from Village Roadshow. I think I actually get PR things I think we'll be able to get free movie tickets. I get
But I think that part of it just like my food, how I'll have like a beat Sunday of eating or whatever. Yeah. In preparation for Monday, which to be honest, yes, I
was very good at that.
We had some
I had some circuit breaking right there.
some slice the brain mind. Okay. Talk
about the fucking food. You were on a good point. Finish your point.
What was the point? The main point was that I'm going hard on social media right now doing a big fucking digest. Yeah, big big big digest. And I'm going to completely like like compartmentalize not do it as much. That's cool. I think good with not being on my personal I don't if you go to Josh Janssen on Instagram,
you know, no social media.
You're totally off your personal integrate. I'm loving LinkedIn. Yeah.
I mean, this is the thing. You the way you go up and down about it is why you have a problem, because I don't feel like that. I've never felt like that. Work. Maybe? Or maybe not, maybe your wiring is slightly different and things trigger you more. And it just sucked your time a bit more than other people. And so that's where it's like the person who wins on social media is the person that utilizes it for its best you know, for its great traits of connecting people. Well, facts and then get off it. Exactly. There's
imagine what's your what's your limits on on social media? There's a me spend too much time are you guys both good?
Yeah, I can always have my annoyances about what she does. And half the time it's around the the type of thing that she doesn't do you know what, like some mindless game I'm like, Fuck, I just want you my you know, I want you to fucking nourish your mind a bit more. You know, it's funny in that moment, when I was I was about to ask Tell me about his
experience on social media. And now back to me, but I realized in the my mouth I feel like you'd have more than I feel like you've got more to say that may or Amy or whatever. You're in your little fine doing your shit going you guys a fact?
No, I but I don't complain about it. So the problem is, yeah, no, no, you do I my annoyances people who talk about it, complain about how they shouldn't be doing it, talk about not being on it, and get on it. That's when it's what fucking what help are we what are we around you doing? But my issue is just consumption. Like I could always use dial back. I think it's me saying hey, I'm not
like not on my side. But I think the other the, I think part of the problem is with social media, phone. And I do and I'm not engaging in messages and doing what something by post something on Instagram, I can do what I can watch it. And that's not to do with, I guess that's part of the frustrations. It's like, we're always connected. So it's like, if you don't write back to this person's email, but you're on social media, they're gonna be like, what do you haven't written back? Yeah, I'm actually completely responsible with what I want to do, of course, and that's part of it, which is like, with when it comes to the off the phone thing, I'm off the phone in regards to engage responding to and feeling like I need to respond to people. But I'm engaging in a, in a more sort of passive level that I want to do.
It's much safer fee. I think like that's a good approach, I think.
Yeah. And then
there is a, there's a communication bit that you need to do with people where it's like, hey, just so you know, I'm not going to be like, going into I miss it. I'm not doing all that sort of stuff. But I think there needs to be a caveat which is like, I also it doesn't need to be managed. I think that was always what pissed me off about with dieting and all that sort of thing. I'm not telling people that like, I don't like I've never used the word I haven't used the word diet seen maybe 15 years dying on a diet because it finishes right it also the other thing with the died is that every when you on a diet everyone's watching. Yeah,
it's like, what? what everyone's watching when you saying that you're off social media, which is why Russkies sends an email.
Yeah. It's part like part of it is like, Oh, that's a
The thing is that I guess probably the interesting thing is I don't necessarily feel like I feel good about my use. At the moment. Like I'm controlling it. I'm like working in. But it's also being like, the retirement of social media is a constant out, which is I don't want to be responding to people all the time. I want to use it the way I want to you don't want to you don't want to be
you don't want the each to dictate your behavior, and other people. Other people's behavior.
I think part of it is it's like maybe the the misstep with people is thinking that because I'm on social media, I'm failing at the retirement type of thing, which is, for me, I just want to use it a different a different way. It's an easy way for me to be rebranded the retirement.
fuck the definition of retirement. It's my definition now. So now I
appreciate that. I mean, junkies are very good at
manipulating, because you're sort of like, you know what, he's got a point Josh
align with social media. How do you feel about 97? Am I just creating excuses?
Yeah, I mean, I don't know. I think I think the easiest thing in terms of that is just literally locking down your phone. I mean, like, I don't, I don't know if you can just like half like, you can consume it, but not like respond to people. I don't know if a junkie can have just a
little bit from the syringe or whatever you like didn't have the full
blast. Heroin, heroin. Yeah, I guess it's a little bit.
Social media is a little bit. Yeah. And imagine 10 years, I'm looking forward to this discussion. 1015 years? How like, the addiction conversation around social media, what platforms will be around, it's, it's what Bodie, my son, that that documentary, social animal, which tracks three kids who are using social media, like some of the the thinking they're just so wrapped up in it, and it is scary, like you're on that cusp of like, being totally entrenched, and also having fucking
an awareness about it.
But the other thing too, is that like social media, we we it's this all encompassing idea, if you think about it, which is like direct messages. And like, there was a time where Instagram didn't have direct messages. Facebook didn't have direct message. You were sending tweets by sending a text message. Yeah,
it was was
a different time. It's different. But I think part of it is it's like
someone who loves technology and loves all of this stuff, maybe that we need to way that you either accept social media as it is, or you get off it. Whereas I think part of it is it's like, you don't have to agree with all the tools. And it's like this, this stuff within social media, which is, you know, bad this stuff. That's really good. And so I think that people's ability, like what annoyed me about the reason I got on Facebook was how much it made messenger part of the experience. Yeah, and I don't want to be like, the only Should I get from messenger is annoying requests. And so I don't want to be on messenger, dm stuff. I don't necessarily want to I just want to broadcast stuff on a like other people's broadcasted stuff.
You feel out of control when you're across everything, and you trying to serve like where the daily talk show doesn't like the Facebook pages. Neither here nor there. It's like, doesn't really have any traction. But now Instagram is a really powerful place where people who are watching our show, yeah, consume it, that sort of demographic is it work like sharing
stuff like us? re sharing people listening to the show?
Yeah, it's really cool. Just that it's serving that community building, which is what we're trying to do.
So we're going to do this goes, goes, man, and yeah,
I reckon we go and try and get this. burrito that's full of guacamole. All right.
