It's the daily Talk Show Episode 331. What's happening guys? Monday yesterday that was, I was gonna say today is Tuesday, but it feels like Monday because yesterday we pre recorded with Lewis.
Well, I said to you just before, I don't want to do anything today, I'm just I got that feeling. I feel like everyone's written off this this week. Well, there's only three work days. And we're for two of them doing work but the the others building out our new studio.
Well, for people who aren't in Australia, we had a stir but then ANZAC Day. Yeah, which fold on Thursday yet so people take that day off. So there's heaps of people who are like, in black, Gary.
Oh, you know, down the down the peninsula. Yeah. It'd be nice to just have I mean, I we got together with family over the weekend. So Friday, Good Friday, we did a nice family gathering. And it was you know, like the the cousins that we would go away with when we're young. We're just talking around we should have bought a holiday have you know, like we all went on holiday back in the day.
And we like we rented and we rented them Okay, sure. But my my point the little snotty, you know, millennial a little bit closer to little snotty Gen y's we should have bought, but we because we would we would pay for rentals, weeks and would sometimes share with the cousins, but I was thinking back in the day that the place where we went, Flinders is now worth so much money, and it's one of those ones where we it's like, you think if we got him back then we should have bought Apple stock Tesla. We should have done I should have gone to the gym today. I always say Yeah, definitely. I always think that that's that's not a comment on any way. You're looking, I may say
pointed out I was to Josh Well, I was. I have a thing about nudity in our apartment in regards because we've got all these windows. And so I was like hiding myself with the towel. Yeah, embrace it. Are you hiding your?
Because I was doing this. First of all, I got a few problems with that. boobs. If a woman calls a man's pecs boobs, you're in trouble that I said I
got upset with her this morning. And I said because she also said to shave my back. Right? She called cold and boots. But she said no. She clarified she said the way that I was holding it up. It looked like I was
like wearing a towel around there. Like when I was up. Yeah,
when I was a kid. That's right, because I used to have like quite the man boobs. I would wear the towel all the way up and just walking to the pool or whatever is you also have you
here. Like Fran Drescher a little
bit of that vibe, but I don't know why I brought that up. But that's been
on my mind. I was thinking just around the company stuff like you should have bought stocks and something I think to myself if I woke up tomorrow to see a little game I play what company
tomorrow was a silly I'm getting there.
If I woke up tomorrow, you let me fucking finish otherwise, it was a joke.
I know. It was a joke. And so you pushing doesn't make it funny anymore.
that I lose what I'm gonna say based on you interrupting. Say, let's go you wake up tomorrow, Mr. 97. You can own one company. Oh, no, no, sorry. That's not the game. The game is fucking thrive. This is why I push back on him. wake up tomorrow. You could you could own one company, but it hasn't yet been created. But from your existence over your 19 years, you know about a product or a business that you could then start which one would it be? So like, Google's not around yet. But you could have the idea. You are the guy that has the idea. And you can see it through what based on that year. So it's just like tomorrow is a company that you could start that hasn't that has been has been done. But now it's you get what I'm saying? No. Yeah, yeah.
It's SpaceX is the SpaceX launching. Right? Okay. Yeah.
Bipolar has hasn't existed yet. Know what I'm saying is you have it's going to be your idea. So you can take it so for instance, tomorrow I wake up, and I go, Okay, I really want to start Tinder. But and so Tinder was something that I've taken let's
let's say this. Let's say this has got anything to do with Miranda.
It's got nothing was ready.
I was a snapchat
You wake up tomorrow on a new planet? There is nothing that is from this world in that planet yet on that planet alternate. Alternate Earth same existence is people an alternative. So what is what is what is the company that you would own? or start?
And you can't say something in the invention of squeeze
something in mining? My job came as a joke. Funny, true. I don't know I think probably something that's got a positives, like a positive thing to it. Say not Mac is.
There's nothing wrong with Mac. Yeah,
I'm not sure.
But I always I like to do that. And I also like to go if I could go back in time with the knowledge I have now. Would I like what things where I remember like the horse racing, who won? And so I could then go and put all this money on you know, Maccabi David.
That's why you have to buy a house in Flinders, you too busy. It's a poor person mindset. You
know, I think a poor person mindset. So where we went for for Good Friday lunch, I was like, Fuck, this is where I want to leave our pockets. suburb. When I told
me I wanted to bring I were looking at places Albert Park. And you said Albert Park was a bit Bogan. No, I never said Albert Park lake. Yeah,
Albert Pike like fucking Bogan people who go there from outer suburbs and God This is amazing. It's like, the fucking like, but you you
made it clear. You're like
overpack. You know, they tell me no, it's not what I said. Don't take me out of context. What I said was specifically, Albert Park, like as a destination is a bit.
Nath and you said that people who live in Albert Park don't go down a pathway. Exactly.
Really. I would say that it's I could because one of these is like, it's where the Grand Prix is right? In Melbourne. years ago, the Grand Prix wasn't there. They came in and they built out and sure it is nice. It's a big body of water. It's like you know, Island middle people do sailing on there. But other than that, it's like it's just I mean, people go walking there. I can't speak for everyone now but park but from living in Albert Park. I didn't go there much parking fact. You're going to pay for parking everywhere around our part of it. You're the kind of guy who doesn't like Great Barrier Reef to I'd love to go it's really nice, actually. Yeah, I'd love to go before it's all attached to the bug. And I say there'd be plenty of Marlboro jackets.
You'd have to actually wear a little pink cam on your snorkels you'd have to wear a little pink bow what is the pink Bossa asthmatic
fair enough pink but
and so why why are you now on board?
It's not your like might avoid that queens parade it's a shit area
that's not Albert Park bro. That is not Albert Park. So there's on one side is like you know high rise buildings on the other side is Albert Park the most expensive square meter rich land in Melbourne really even beyond like
so I lived I've lived there I'm not going to tell you not to go there. I'm just questioning the square
meters thing Yeah, more expensive than a smell been directly
Look at that. Mr. 97 it has been it's been known for being the most expensive square made rich in Melbourne. What does
he type in to find out if you're right most expensive
squares a square meter land in Melbourne. Anyway so my like my grandmother bought a house for I think it was like $40,000 years and years and years ago, you know, a park. I mean, that same land is now like three 4 million bucks or whatever she owned an apartment to and we and anyway My point is, I was like there and I was like, I can love this place. It's It's It's safe. It's you know, it's a bit quiet. It's not like hipster ish like this area. So it's like a lot all the demographic and get a lot of money but I was thinking this is where I want a house. I want a house here. And so I was thinking the poor man's mentality is to think that they can never have a house in nice areas or you're just delusional thinking that you can have a house in a nice area because there's a the two ways it plays out. I never made money or I make enough money I get a house it but why would I think that I can't get a house they're like why would I want to saying is a real poor man's mentalities is that you just wouldn't think you could afford that think I can never afford it.
I got an update to South Melbourne is the most expensive at $11,000 per square meter in an hour Park is 10 and a half thousand per square meter. So that's a second thing. Yeah.
Well, Melbourne, South Melbourne Melbourne
South no ways a summit like I'm just use word for
our international listeners or anyone outside or anyone who doesn't have a grasp of computers. Melbourne, Melbourne landmark or Melbourne service, South Melbourne. Next, Albert Park. They are joining suburbs. But so anyway, is a smell been in there. Not
just brain. Brain. I walked around a smell been on the weekend. That's where I want to live. Yeah,
it's the same same vibe.
So the I heard that for some reason rates are quite high. And a smelt like maybe because of like the medical stuff? I don't know. I mean, this is the thing if you're worried about rights, and
if you're if you're a just scraping in after buying a $5 million house, and then you like the 1500 a year.
I mean, that is just something to think about. But I hope that just being able to purchase the house in South Melbourne, Melbourne, you can pay your right
so if you if you all of a sudden have $3 million. Yeah, handed to what is a reasonable amount to spend on a house.
I think half of it 1.5 million bucks you can get like if you bought a moment of saying half 2 million, and then you've got a million bucks to spend on life. It's going to last you a long time. Yeah, sure.
I mean, you hear those stories of people who are just living off their interest. Oh, yeah, that's pretty crazy. Yeah.
I mean, these are all poor people. real fucking numbers. Yeah. Did you hear
Samantha's cousin apparently hasn't worked in fact in 15 years living off these interests.
true. He definitely But does he put his interests into an everyday splurged? Smile? Fire extinguisher.
I like this. This is one from the family gathering. This happened on Sunday. Mom said I was having a conversation. I was actually having a nap in mom's bed. And mom and my, my wife and my brothers were all out in the lounge room talking. And somehow they landed on the conversation around cluster feeding. So my brother's got a new baby. Six weeks old. Cost of fading is something that you the baby does in its infancy. It's like multiple fades across a short period of time.
Tim Ferriss, it's bad that dispatching
magic. It's not part of the story. But the word the word cluster is part of the story because then mom said what's cluster? I hear Josh say cluster fuck a lot. It that's then she thought that that meaning? The cost of Fox? She was like, I thought it I thought it meant gang bang
on Fox Yeah.
But it is a cluster of fact. What's like go fuck yourself if you actually deconstruct and what it's asking.
So she was convinced that a cluster fuck is a gang banger is an orgy
she might be right can you look up what a cluster fuck actually the
definition is she and she's always thought that when you've said it's a cluster fuck she thought Why is he talking about
a cluster fuck is if it's if it's a disaster to classify these multiple Fox has this thing going on? It's an absolute cluster sheets going
patience class. The fact
I gave away hats.
I know maybe this should be new. What are we at? We need we're probably up to number four rule of the new office that rafal
this I don't know if social media I don't know if you can put a rule office that's going to well packed my evenings. Big don't don't do a merge giveaway without consulting the people who are actually do the hard lifting or having the merge don't match budget. Don't sit emerge budget when we haven't chatted
about it. Don't give away much when we actually don't have the merge to give away.
Well, part of my theory, my theory on all of this and this has been my go to even when I was an employee, I'd be like You know what? I'm gonna do this thing. You've done this. Like I mentioned this on the Craig Craig Bruce podcast, I asked the GoPros for work I yet he said Josh we can't do it. When and I
just bought a DSR at the time, I returned to that and bought four GoPros and use them.
So what was what we understand is your loose cannon when it comes to making purchase? Oh, yeah,
no, my theory is always the company doesn't want to do it. I can this will be Jays.
mean men, what do you have to say when I receive
an email with a purchase of 20 $800
on it on the magazine that we spoken about that? That arrives today.
But I get it. But the reason I bring it up is because I want people to know, the the app that I was trying
to Okay, well tell the story of what you what you did, because I kind of just, I only found out bits and pieces
from going on Instagram. So there's a new app called Sweet. If you if you listen on an iPhone or an Android phone. Yeah. If you're not happy with your current podcast app. You sweet. This is not a paid promotion. Well, no pay. No, sir. Yeah, but I will. This is more of a recommendation. This is more editorial. So I downloaded switch over the weekend, Mr. 97 actually slapped it to us. Yeah. And I'd heard it on pod news. I'd seen it already on the verge. And then Mr. 97 had given the verge link. And so what sweeties is it's like a social media layer to podcasting. But it doesn't have the cluster fact that is anchor anchor tends to which is another podcasting app every day sort of the problem with anchor is that they I feel like they're trying to control too much of the whole experience. So for instance, you upload within and care and then it used to be back in the day that they had a bunch of rights to podcast that uploaded into their system. Nice that right? Didn't he nice? That's with with anchor. Yeah,
exactly. It's funny because getting cash. Yeah,
cash money is definitely in the no paint, no say so he's got paid and he sang about sweet. I feel like he's a nice sort of neutral app. But the good thing is you can see what your friends are listening to. Yeah,
I mean, this, all these kind of apps require any new social network requires people to be on the that's the hard thing, right? It's like, I jumped on and it was only one person from my contact list, like from my telephone contact list. And then from my Facebook list that was actually on this. But that's I mean, this is early days, right? It also gives me the excitement of
give you a little tingle. Early like you got Tommy Mason got Mason well
the username Now this would be if it gets as successful as Instagram. Mason, if if I can with line? Yeah, you've got your full name is the 97th hand at least at Mason. What a fucking bowler hat. I think
Jim Bry actual name is Brianna. are a in a no, Brianna. Brianna is actually Dublin. So she's not being a whitelist. And Brianna, that's just how you say it. But she is facebook.com forward slash Brianna. That's cool. And she is on sweet spot.com forward slash Brianna. And it was because I am when Facebook released their vanity URLs. So being able to select your own. I pray looked at someone at Facebook had or someone who was in the know. Yeah. Who had a connection had already taken forward slash Josh Yeah. So then that was like, Okay, I can't do it. But Bry Bry can
Yeah, I mean, Brianna is not as
well known as a popular name is Josh like it's not as common. So tribe jewels land his business. They have a tribe on Instagram and tribe on Twitter. They go given it on the Twitter one just wasn't being wasn't active. And then somehow he was speaking with the people at twitter. Yeah. And they like Oh, yeah. Do you want your hand? Oh, yeah, sure.
Why not active? I have a friend who had alohar on Twitter. I sold it for a surfboard.
Shockers. So she got a surfboard. But I think there were the company was meant to give a five grand as well. And they have a two and a half.
That's because it was basically
rat. Everyone go and tweet alohar dogs, right, sir? I think it's two and a half. Oh, it was a 2.5. Anyway, so sweet. Yeah.
What I do like about sort of outside of that is I emailed because I couldn't work out how to delete one of I started two accounts on the fact that he started to again anyway, I I emailed them, and I got an email back from the founder pate. Because I said, Man, I can't delete this account. I can't find the button. What do I do? He said, Hey, Tommy, I got you. I deleted this account for you. Let me know if you have any other problems or feedback. Pete sweet CEO, co founder was early early days. So yeah, I'm not married to any podcast app. I have never been married to sweetener now. Or it hasn't given me any issues. So I feel like I'm that's that's what I'm looking for something that doesn't annoy me. from the get go. It hasn't annoyed me yet.
Well, I feel like it gamify Is it too because I'm now wanting to up my podcasting listening. I don't know if you notice that. Well, I'm trying to be a top dog in the
heads up. I've noticed that
yes, he has paid actually tearing down this big media company because your focus is now not on doing any work now gamified podcast Listen,
well, yeah, I just it's gonna increase my walking because now I've switched. Yes, I've switched from watching YouTube now. Yeah, to doubling down on the podcast stuff. So
fall into this
well, because I can walk I don't have to. The problem with YouTube is I have to be like looking at the sky. Have you actually done it yet?
I saw last last night I was embedded. This was hard to walk when you're in bed. But this morning when I was lying in bed listening to a podcast and like fact, I can do when we're in the new office. I'm gonna fucking leave really early. I'm going to do fucking 10 blobs.
so I listened to mark Marin's WTF podcast yet he had burn a bra. Yeah,
I did you watch Netflix. Now have Renee Browns Netflix special. I'm not doing any vision only podcast. In fact, your role worship. It's brand new on Netflix and burn a brown she, what I think she's done is she's probably asked to do keynote after keynote on a public, you know, level, you know, like a, like the TEDx where it becomes public. She does a lot of keynotes for businesses and be, you know, take care of these young Silicon Valley pros. This is brilliant. You've gone to the biggest platform in the world right now. And you're doing one keynote, and you're going to nail it, and it's just about what you do. So it's like TEDx on steroids. This one. So it's almost like
if a comedian was to get like a special
dirt isn't it? It is an it is a Netflix comedy special. It's comedy self development. inspiration. She's fucking unbelievable with his show. Like, you're crying. You're laughing She's so funny. She's a fucking absolute killer. It's
that one video.
It's one it's at a at some big theater in Texas, I think or text. Yeah, where she's from? And she just speaks for an hour and a half
on great. I just don't have time for series.
No, it's not a series. It's just heard doing unbelievable keynote. It's it's Yeah, it's so crazy. So good.
I was watching Chris. Lily's new show on Netflix. I was Yeah, I watched the first episode. I was first to Did you. Yeah, you got through the first your first one was the funniest bit I couldn't stop laughing was when the ex porn star came out the cape and was
when she said I'm a bad woman or something. But I wanted to watch it because there was so much so many people blowing up
a cultural appropriation. Now what is that? What is it? Yeah, cultural appropriate cultural preparation. Anyway, he The thing is I was like I couldn't always looking at so my filter going into watching was, Is it funny? And has he stepped over? I think it's cultural appropriate.
Coaches should Yeah, I do like that word. Yes. It sounds like the appropriation if it's if it's not appropriate. It's fucking inappropriate. Yes, exactly. cultural appropriation.
I was looking for him to slip up. Yeah, I couldn't see it. Other than I mean, taking off a South African woman who he was pretending to be a dog whisperer. Yeah, but he what he does Nio is this stereotypes. I mean, he he's, he's done the minorities, he's done the, the Tillman's and the he did you know blackface? Essentially, which he didn't do in this, but he just fucking nails the the slimy real estate agent. Yeah,
real estate agent one was the best. It actually reminded me of you and I saw a sign
the other day. Yeah. What was it called? What is it
040 was sales and I was like, why are they so sale like that? Yeah, I've seen it fucking guy on LinkedIn. You surnames zit I LA. And he's trying to sail to Zale. So when he's got a big board up, which has cut through, right, but he's, like the stereotype or the, the character that he does, Chris Lee Lee does in that is on some points on point. And, and the, the young kid who's like, you know, meant to be like 12 years old,
played by Crisler, the 40 year old man, who's just so inappropriate. But you see, he's like, the tryhard kid swears too much, says inappropriate shit. Like I see. I see so many people that I've met in these characters on the show, which I think he's, he's, that's enough on that. See, that's the beauty. And so if you it's observational, if you're looking to sort of take it down y z impersonating South African women, like, well, he's done it very well.
But there's just so many like, like so many people just triggered these days. It's crazy. Yeah,
it's essentially Yes. I wish the first two episodes but the there seems to be so much like we've just describes content that would take hours and hours to watch. I feel like that. Yeah, the problem with this long weekend is I spent some time flicking through shit. And I'm just like, now I'm overwhelmed. And like, when am I gonna have time to do all of this? Oh, Jesus should bank them. Have you go to? I mean, when what every evening like I have to at least I've got the Seth Godin book to write. I don't have time to spend two hours a day. What consuming? I know.
is a Game of Thrones. I don't watch Game of Thrones. And if you were to commit to that if I was committing to Game of Thrones series seven. Alright. I series. Yes. Yeah, it's too much
so like an error in a bit as well.
That's fucking crazy. And it's Game of Thrones for someone who has no idea is it medieval? Yeah,
I feel like we don't I think I've watched it and was it you know,
it sort of is in sort of is always joining was like its
That's the name of the episode. cultural appropriation. Know what to bring this sort of it's it's like mistake. It's from ancient like, it's from years and years and years ago. So it's like, it's hard to explain, but it's
even sword fights and that sort of stuff. So it's like, armies and battles and stuff. And
there's different lords and gay and isn't Can we?
Can you look up Game of Thrones and work out whether it is medieval I went to in Croatia? Dubrovnik. Yes. That's where they like filmed a bunch of it. Yeah.
What a waste. So the guy
the guy or this heaps of I'm here. Yeah. But I've got no understanding from the shift when I was in school.
Is that was
struggling Institute of Sport. Yeah, I got a hat.
I remember what you go there for the school just like it was a thing I did. When he got a camera. Were like you got a parliament you got is
first school that's in the suburbs. And they go to camera. I mean, that's pretty good.
We went to the central Australia. That's pretty good. I'm talking about cultural sort of inappropriate.
knew its word on
when we were we climbed all over, which is Yeah, crazy.
I don't think schools would do that nowadays with 100% I wouldn't do it. If I had done it like you I would be like, I'm glad I did it in the time that it wasn't shunned. If you done it now, and you're promoting the fact that you've done it, I don't think there's anything wrong with you.
Okay, because I got got away with it before we knew that it was wrong. Definitely. But I think we still we shouldn't have known that it was wrong
know what we'll just wasn't a time it's I get what you're saying. But I also think that it was what it was and your school went and they're getting the young kids to do it in the intentions good. And then we have greater understanding over the years to then go that's a no go but you've done it and it's something that no don't mean no one will do. I mean
glad I do blackface like Chris Lily Paki got lucky before it really lucky. He's only gonna look about Look at me riding an elephant only things I regret.
But why? They just a part of what? A part of a time where it was okay. Like, that's why I think regretting any of these things. I think black face is probably one that you could look back on and regret because you were hurt.
By the way you framing.
because I think that in Australia anyway, yeah. We didn't have the cultural understanding or sensitivities or connection with what it was in the US. And so
the one that you did the big rock in the center of Australia Elora Yes. is for people outside. It's like it was a tourist attraction. He brought money into the area and it still does. Where is blackface if someone's did over? It's not about you know, bring it attention to something for
Yeah, I guess you couldn't find you could find the delivery thing of life. Like it's, I saw it is like an adventure. What I've actually got hate stroke, did you? which serves me right? Yeah, I had to I remember lying in the back of the bus. And they'll like get him a jam sandwich. Getting my jam sandwich ham sandwich. Yeah.
Fucking fatty. Some water?
No, I was low in like, sugars,
water, Gatorade and jam sandwich yet. But it was pretty amazing. Because the thing is, I didn't different times, it was a different time because it teaches the name of your name in check. Like it. I didn't bring water. I know. I trust
you got water might now we're doing a dance with a time that we just with the we're going to fall on my and we've been very far the wrong way. And so now it's like I think about the camps and shit we did in school. It's like, What? What's Bodie, my son going to be doing? 15 years when we're worried about in Guinea and graze on his knee? Because he's going to get we're going to sue the school, which I will. But absolutely,
especially if it's one of the primary school.
And just to finish off, I just want to mention, you're wrapping us up. Well, we've done half an hour. Bodie, my son, and I've spoken about on this podcast, has been beaten multiple times at daycare. And you know how they say, you know, they don't tell you the name of the kid who did it. You fucking rip the head off. Well, they just like, we don't want to sort of bring them into it. They're little.
But he's older now. And he can start he spake Simon. Simon, hey, will
break Simon's little faster.
already has the biggest bite mark. And
I asked him say night he was it. And it's Sammy. Who was it? I saw because I didn't want to serve him up the name. Sammy, Sammy. I said I was semi gay. And then I said, Sure. Who was it? Leo?
Leo. And then he says, sons if I can add Valentino, either way to line up. It was a group bite. Yeah. Or I'm going with a first name Sammy.
Maybe it was just his best friend. But someone that he remembers.
But yeah, this is the thing. I thought I was onto something. But out of that. Yeah,
it's hard, isn't it? So don't bite my kid Josh because he will rattle on you or someone else.
So if you, if you do sign up, if you type in Tommy, or Josh Janssen
or Mason, you can follow us and you can say what we're listening to what we're listening to what we recommend. It's Yeah, I think it's a good one. I think if you are sick of the app that it was chosen for you, which is on Apple phones, the podcast app, yeah, give it a give it give it a go.
Is the Android experience. I came 97
Yes, not too bad. How about
the Android experience in general? Yeah,
it's pretty wack. It's not it's, it's I think, I think they've I think they've literally just ported the app over from iOS.
iOS, yeah. Yeah.
But just some of the gestures and stuff on on is fluid. Okay. It's It's better than I mean, you can't use Spotify cuz that's just enough like Joe Rogan and stuff. So
doesn't it know? What do you mean?
Why mission any What?
Why? Well, because they, it'd be modified probably have like, licensing deals around all of this stuff that those companies don't want to buy into. So like, we're not going to allow you to do this. We probably should write it.
All right, guys. All right.
It's the daily talk show tomorrow Josh Pittman on the show. We had him last time in New York City. Yeah,
Washington Square Park and the sun. We won't get him to sing this time. I mean, I always like to get into see anyone who any of my friends who actually can sing. Only carriage
could sing. Could I do what God encourages? Could we do the Josh the Joshua's and do a bit of a duet? Yeah,
because you make you shine.
I'm okay with that. We'll look forward. Look forward to that tomorrow. Cinema guys. See you guys
