It's a daily Talk Show Episode 382 What's going on guys? What's happening? I was feeling a little bit low energy yesterday. Wait, I mean, you came to work looking like you had just gone to take a piece during the middle of the night. Well, I'd forgotten my I'd forgotten jeans and
tracksuit pants and I was wearing my hoodie that I've kept for crack for emergencies. We're feeling fat.
Really? Yeah. I think it's about four XL. I can just lie really. But I've realised that the thing about wearing those clothes is you look homeless. did have that sort of vibe. It wasn't it wasn't ideal, but I'm feeling better today. Yeah, but I thought we could start with a little bit of gratitude from everyone. I know. We do it on a Friday but to be honest, we're already on a high because yeah, that Fridays and things like that. Yeah. What are you I'm grateful.
Well, if I want to go I was I was, this is the thing, how much judgement do people have around their own gratitude? Because I was always getting sad. Like I was gonna say something that's like personal I had a moment this morning where I kind of was like, you know from like, you know what's in front of that just like a in a funk in a, just in a moment where I could see I was going in a negative spiral. Can we look up the word from just to say from from PS like Fat Fat front loading trunk.
From Xena from I was in a funk, but I could feel myself going in a negative spiral. And I was like, hang on, for some reason. I was like, I can switch this up. I was like, What if I just choose to look at it? This is the best possible situation. And then I just started to reframe things I'm grateful for. For one my brain
itself in that moment and and, and doing that for me. Same thing happened to me this morning to this yet. I was like feeling like I got up and I realised that the new cameras that we've got I haven't told you this yet, but we need one extra little connector to be able to run power. Yeah, the cameras arrive. We can't use it, but we don't have powers on it. Yeah, now it's a dangle. It's a dongle that hangs at the side of the storey. You want to be a bit from a gratitude point of view. We didn't order that. So I've got to do that. But it was just like, now and then I realised that I hadn't sent a calendar invite for tomorrow and all that sort of thing. It was all good. It was all fine. I got through it. And so what am i grateful for?
Either we can come to work, and we've got like a great place to work like, like, warm, I can put my headphones on, I can get stuff done. And also that will get a great time. What about you, Mr. Nice, Evan, what are you grateful for what I was doing some editing from some of the shoots that we did last week.
There were about a technology platform that that it's like a government government initiative to teach all the people how to use technology. But yeah, I think I think I'm probably grateful for the fact that we have like, I'm accident mixer and a camera like it's full on. Yeah, like to think about what it does. Yeah, it is crazy ridiculous. It was awesome hearing like a 90 year old talk about the fact that she's got like a group chat
about you three to do what are you grateful for? I'm grateful for a lot of things. But this morning in particular, I went to a different cafe than what I normally go to the morning coffee. And did you regret it? No, actually the good the barista there saw my film and she said, What do you do to your thumb, so I told her the storey and then she told me about her. Her grandmother has some ancient ointment that she uses like to put on cuts and stuff. And she's like, if you're ever back in and I'm here, it's like, just remind me and I'll see if I can get some
40 and like that's, that's amazed like
the pure generosity. I wonder what it is. I bet it steam
looks a little bit of lemon juice.
That's exactly what I thought I reckon lemon juice is definitely Brynn grandmother's tend to I don't have I've never had a grandmother that I have, like been of an age where, you know, my grandmother, my grandmother died when I was very young and then my other grandmother got dementia and so my memories of her in a hospital I used to go in and I feed her and shit stealing food. Well, she she just didn't want to instal date all of that would like these little puddings and I was awesome. I mean, and it was lovely. It was a lovely time. She says sound putting sound better than what they are now. So I went to Pascoe never had putting before and I bought like you can't buy a small amount of pudding. So the first time I bought pudding I bought like racks of putting, yeah, that was in our free stuff that I it's
Cast. It's yoghurt. Well, the ones I get I know you're getting a like, yeah, yoga, yoga would be better. But I think so I couldn't. So there was nothing passed down from my grandmother's to me because I didn't have that relationship with them. But my, one of my best mates grandmother's, she would she's such a character. And she would always keep soda water in the cupboard.
Or fridge, no in the cupboard. And my mate started doing this. I lived with him and he would have soda water at hand, because his grandmother told him if you ever get rid one on the carpet, side water, that's good. And that was like a thing passed on. Have you got anything from your granny?
You know your granny still with it? They're all dead Nana though, because remember, I filmed at Nana's funeral. I live streamed it, it cost me cost me a bombing. Because my brothers in the US. Yeah. So I live streamed and every five I had
The resolution too high like so I was recording the whole thing like yeah livestreaming 10 it paid which is overkill for for a funeral potentially. And so every five minutes I was getting a notification Yeah, a geek of data anyway other than being handed over a big data bill
sponge cakes and stuff a very is never been it wasn't never like the recipes never got to me. She held them close. I should have probably was eating them. Yeah, jam. She was very big into jams and the great thing is sugar stuff.
She died for you three or four years ago. It was only a year ago. That mom was like, Oh, we've got the last bit of Nanas jam that we're having on Scott Really? Because like I guess because it's so she made Yeah, that's so cool. I love that i think i think it's a real choice to like you deciding
To do something that you'll be able to pass down. Yeah, like, for instance, my father, my dad, we used to play games when we were kids. So I had my my dad so much because he's a really hard worker, he classic kind of, you know, out of the tool, he was a landscaper had a business and so I got to see great work work ethic in him and as soon as he got home, it was straight to ball in the hole, which was ball in the hole which was get your legs separated like that. So you sitting down and then roll the ball to each other and that's grind down there was also like, it was like lone balls, but inside
both both Bombus yeah so it was indoor car, it was palpable. That's great. And the other one was
here in there, which is that is saying or is that actually I could demonstrate here and there but you will probably 70 kilos, 80 kilos too heavy, it does involve lifting involves holding your body
BN. So I've started doing this with barley. And it's amazing. Like I say, this is the thing I'm going to carry on and I want to do it for his kids, if I choose to chooses to have kids, here and there, he says, Daddy more here and more here and there. And so I hold them, I say Close your eyes, and he closes his eyes. And I remember this so vividly as a kid that would walk around the house, I'm here in there, and I close my eyes and you'd be spinning so I'd lose my orientation, so I wouldn't know where I am. And then he would take me somewhere. And he put my head right down into a weird position. So I'd be like, toilet ball. Oh, like that in the bathroom or like in the shower, and then you'd open your eyes and you would like, I'm in the shower, but it was just such a great game as a kid because it was, you were like, Where am I going to end up? Where am I going to end up what's your favourite place to to take Bodie? Like, what's the little prick opens his eyes.
Close your eyes, he goes out this squeezes and then he starts to slowly open that gate just like that. You can
RI hold him in tight and so but yeah let's just take him down like the catch and random positions maybe get him one of those like I'm asks yeah
why is that funny? It's funny but it's I just wanted to fuck is not keeping his eyes close
pulling me into my chest okay I mean yeah I've started this sort of making nobody loves it it's part of the fun but I that's one thing I was always thinking about it I'm thinking about my here video I should just do it my where I where I speak to my dad and I get the lowdown on but it's an instruction manual right idea and but what we do is we recreate it where
I didn't think he could lift me. He had a hit reply, so he's a strong he's a strong old man. But I think I would have to lift him so it's like the kid who you think your dad I don't know if you did? We do. Yeah, maybe maybe he's a funny guy and think it's funny.
I can imagine doing content can you please
Yeah, yeah, yeah. Well, the other thing I'm grateful for yet. Yes. So, Leah, who is currently here, I'll just turn on turn on this. We've got a mic for me. Let's Let's it this is the first time we're ever bringing in the couch. Mike. Leah. How are you? Hi. Oh, there we go. It's actually what's on it. Oh yeah, it's on. You don't have him.

So Leah reached out to us online and internet friends and now she's on a catch Yeah. As you do it's always 97 reached out online through the deal reached out online Yeah. The internet I know that's how all of us are here actually. Yeah, that's it's very you and I we met in person first so that but we but we didn't we didn't actually can really connect until until we had any Facebook interaction. Yeah, yeah yeahs to ask a lot.
Questions? Yeah. Why now? That was great. I enjoyed it. And so, so later Did you find us through game changes was? Well, I actually first found you through shameless. Oh, I am an RJ fan of shameless.
And then and then so I got on to you then. But then I sort of rekindled when I listened to your game changes.
Like shameless. It's one of those things where you're like, you've got situations in your life where you see things early or whatever. And then you sort of take pride in being like, I was what I was there in the early days. Very much so. Yeah, yeah. I mean, I I've always had it with Casey gnostic, because I used to watch him before he started blogging many many years ago. But it's not as cool because we don't know Casey. Nice. Yeah. And Lee, you've got kids. I do. How many? What three? Wow, no, it's crazy. I actually have to you know, so
Myself lot going on. Right? Bodie Tell me if this is what has happened with your partner. Okay, have you got a boy? I've got two boys. oldest boy youngest boy and a girl in the me. I just need one of them to at least have a penis at my house
in the ass to pains in my house. He calls me vagina or painless.
But in the bath everybody and I have a bath completely normally gronk don't know you have to nude
times but he's actually stopped that I think he realises he wants didn't grow stadium. He's like What the?
What's like when you go to America and they've got the balls full of water.
Because you can say it's almost like it's it's you say the whole thing. It's like a render just shooting. Brown summer rain anyway I'm in the bath.
Brody's sitting there and he's got a fascination with penises. We know these have talked about this Dickies and they just they think it's the funniest thing they've got their own he looks over at me I'm nude in the bath with him and he just goes Daddy's got a small Dicky
that he was saying that
he was trolling you
exercise your forearm
which isn't that much of a favour
I do I do wonder though is this a jacket trade or do all the little boys are they all obsessed with their dicks? Yeah, I think I think all of them are and you know what, and this is really slanderous
comes a point you know, I really want to be one of those like New Age parents who like says exactly what the parts are straight away no problems. Why are you ashamed of it doesn't matter. So you know, behind her pain is straight out. But it means that you know
a two year old goes around people and is like trying to pull their pants down Xiaomi vagina
if we're at the supermarket here black you got to
stop so I have some regrets. Yeah, well he he also did say will change his nappies ZQ sticky he doesn't know yeah it's a cute Yeah, it's just not it's if you act on it it's not cute Yes. Otherwise they're very cute. Yeah. I mean I used to call it a doodle do it yeah that's it that's a funny as well.
funny way the funny then became for Gianna which I've mentioned before I jump because why just use the real names guys. Well today it's I mean I'm having this feels like fat Friday. It does have that vibe but this is a mini Lloyd did this bag so these this bag that I'm holding right here if you're watching on YouTube later did bring this in you did bring this is this your bag or deny that gave it to me at the cafe? Yep, no problem. That's right. Okay. So tell us where you got something out and then you tell us what
Okay, great. This one. Okay, so what can I just describe what it looks like first? Yeah. So it is a layered cake. And it's some sort of grain sauce which I'm going to guess it's some form of pistachio. pistachio. What do you say? Sasha? pistachio. pistachio? Yeah, cake. Is that what that is? It's a well kind of it's a green tea crepe cake. Right? Yeah.
Okay, yeah, this is from across the road. Yeah, yeah. Hello, welcome. You get that is that the place where you went or you went to another planet? It was literally as friendly as that.
one right next to her across the road from our studio. Now another
nice another one with an automated there. Hello and welcome. Yeah, I
didn't care if I bought a
that's a true authentic experience. Yeah.
Hey guys, this is a box over there. Oh, wow. I ok, so there's something very chocolaty, and then there's two boys. Yeah, they look like bosoms.
I haven't heard bosom since 1994
so I'm just I'm just having a sniff. It does smell like it does smell like Thailand. Like the bakeries and stuff. It's definitely it's a donut or It looks like a little bun.
Okay, so yes, they're too little like Thai style donuts one of them do you want to guess the flavours or am I telling you I tried not working guess if I know I already have been told. I can't Why haven't you haven't? I just can I give you a hint? That one saver in one sweet. Okay, well, that is the two bosoms Yeah, that's sort of a fucked up thing to do put savoury and sweet and may not know which one that is a psychopathic territory. I'm going to guess.
Okay, I'm just gonna just have a bite of one just out of curiosity.
the thing is that I know you haven't you get and then it whatever you get whatever, whatever you guess what I need to guess which one is sweet and which one savour it yet because I, I'll have this way right now. Okay? Because he wants to do that now but just okay. I think that the the orange nipple was that no they both are
two months. Okay so my theory is that the one on the left is sweet because I feel like there's a more sort of a sugary dense sort of thing. Yeah. And the one on the right looks like which is not because I think that he used to pull a Muay Thai food definitely got like a curry sort of look to it. I reckon I'm gonna go the other way. Or I can This is the other Yeah. Okay. So you think that that's a very is that you do know.
Okay, so perfect. In that case, if you think that's sweet, and I think that's Wait, and we both want suede yet. Let's just do that. Yes. Okay. All right. So you take notes
All right, here we go. So goodbye and then if it's not sweet, old and tell you what the flavour is ok
I can tell it's pretty sweet to me
now I don't know
what if we got okay so Joshua eating carried a
sweet tea sweet tea
suede or not yeah it was but I was like it's it's it's not I mean it tastes like sweet bread hmm
is that better Josh?
Oh mine was much better. Yeah, much better dude. I really wasn't gonna get big but they really convinced me that it's
I don't know where you got coke. I'm sorry dude. I'm so dumb. is not a hint of guy. You're not in that thing. I can there is no dude. Anyway, there's no thank you so much pleasure and the other ones obviously just
demolish that off affair because that's of interest
the just just quickly the mugs that we've been using it the office Oh yeah, what have we been using? Well you've I gave you the
I blog therefore I I blog therefore I am which I think is sort of funny because you're not really a blogging type know how many nor you got one but you don't blog but I've actually decided to
stop making that joke. Which joke Well, every single time you get it I'm like I'm calling it your cup.
I mean, you've you've you've harassed me, You've insulted me. You said you've even send text messages. Hey, bring your stupid mug. Yeah.
I get it.
I've wrapped up my identity in that. Well, I gave it I gave it to you. Thanks. Appreciate it as a like a Linda to is one of it. But it was my mom. Anyway, the joke's on me because I realised it's taking me a couple of months. But the reason you're not giving any pushback on that, Mark, is that Margaret, hold significantly than any other month. Yeah, I haven't worked that out. And so anyway, that leaving an Indian giver, you don't know if you can say that anymore. So okay, just quickly,
me called me before and she's she was driving down to 40. And she's listening on a 40 she's going to put she's, she's basically a video production company. Now. She's installing some time lapse cameras. I hope she's doing it.
She's doing great, but I was in a panic last night. I was like, This is hard for me and I have a video production company. I'm worried for you. Yeah. But anyway, I got them. I set up all the functions and very impressive what she's done and bought like extra battery packs for these things in the towel.
Is it going to last for our dude says taking a photo every 15 minutes, and we've said it from 5:30am. And it turns off at 5pm tonight and it takes Yeah, so for photos an hour and it should last about four months. It's pretty amazing. Wait, it's gonna do that every day for four months. Yeah, well just takes a photo and then she had this battery pack. She's like, I spent 300 bucks on batteries. And she's got, I was like, how did you spend three international batteries and I saw it in this encased this plastic casing. And then it's got a little thing off into a little battery pack. It's super impressive what she's done. I mean, she just bought this stuff, but it's amazing.
Yeah, and this is what I said. We would never promise two o'clock. We can change it because I don't know if it's gonna work or not. Yeah, I mean, I've done it cowboy style for a lot of papers. she going to do it? Is she going to? She going to 40 like every week tonight? No, you don't need to change them. I said just go go in two months and change them all up. And just not a white months before you save the thing. Yeah, whatever. I forgot to tell.
This is why we didn't This is why we're not doing job anyway. She said, I'm listening to some back catalogue stuff around the promises. Yeah. And she heard yesterday's about promises and, and sort of segments and what we want to do. There is one that I was pushing back on word of the day. And I think we just it becomes a thing where we just learn, we asked my son, what does this mean? What does this mean? So it's like, it's almost a part of our show where we do work out what a word means if you don't have an idea, any idea? And she said, I, they were you were pushing back hard on that Tommy? And then you said, How about origin of the day? Or it was another day it was like the the meaning behind a phrase. So this is a great moment because Indian giver
whether we can say that or not the nowadays. Where's it come from the Yeah, Mr. 97 Indian give up. layer. Have you got any idea? Yeah, I don't
Nori, but I do feel like it's a bit of a
cheeky you can't you can't say, but we think that right, and I'm okay to never say it again if it is severely, sort of culturally inappropriate. Yes. Culturally have said it to my kids. And then Should I yeah, that rolls off the tongue. You don't even like apply it to anything like I don't even apply it to like, and I think that was even if you were to look at the transcripts 97 I'm sure that in a previous episode, we've talked about Indian givers and probably even had an answer. No, I don't think so. None, I mentioned it to you. If I was to if we were I mentioned to you race I'm I'm about 90% that we're now we had an interaction where I wrote on a comment I think, Okay, and then I asked you I said, What are you finding this and I said, Well, so Louie ck calls it one of the most offensive things you can call someone but I don't
Yeah, I mean anything else like what does it just right origin so
I mean this whole thing's quoting him so I don't know if that's just let's move away from the yeah it is on npr.org have a definition of Indian give it so maybe then it's like it we don't need the editorial bit we can apply based on yeah yeah used to describe a person who gives the gifts gives a gift and later wants it back yeah so we went into Word of the Day okay yeah okay then
my gonna have to go my with it. He's got this. It is it's a complicated one. I mean he is grateful for the technology but
so am I but if you can't use it, it's actually useless to him about technology. I've asked the three day deal for project to reinstate or re energise our music playlist on Spotify.
I ever heard that. And then I ever heard that he doesn't have Spotify, which I was very surprised that I've got Apple me Why have you got Apple Music? Really? How much is it? I pay 399 or 499 a month. That is really an exclusive discount though. Yeah, student discount.
Anyway, so here we go.
It's derived from the legend practices of American Indians taking back gifts from white settlers. Some I probably wouldn't use that. Yeah, it doesn't sound good. Not good. I mean, that would probably rightfully so. They took them back. Yeah. So it's like, yeah, that's a funny one. It's it's not it's still not clear to me. It's probably it's murky. It's not it's not flat out.
It's not, doesn't seem
appropriate. But the thing is, you don't want to be I guess the idea is I don't want to say Indian give a negative thing to be the Indian. Yes, whose land it was. The white white fellows came on.
And then the fact sheet up and then it's like bro Give me back yeah everything yes I want to be in India What did they call the Indians that were asking it back there was before Indian give me a classic when I was in France I asked him why the French onion soup is very concrete on the show
that was some of your best content and we didn't make pretty sure I've said this but I asked for French onion soup they've just like you made onion soup Italian so when you're in France Italian so it's not french onion so I wonder if we if we go to anything of three year deal they'll just waffles mentioned asking for Belgian waffles in Belgium would probably do that. You know one thing about Belgium? One thing I find out one thing about Belgium in particular is Belgium versus people who are Belgian. Belgian.
What's a Belgian person? Is that a person from Belgium? Yes. Is that is that right? Yeah. Yeah, you could have I think it'd be Belgian waffles waffles not Belgian waffles. Hmm. Interesting way so that that facts with me a little bit
The other thing I think when you think of Belgium What do you think? Chocolate? Yeah, I had a hot chocolate that was shit, Really?
But was the chocolate quality? Because in for instance, Pad Thai in Australia. Ain't Your Pad Thai in Thailand? Yeah, they're all a bit different like Bella chicken. How much how much you feel like but she was basing it on was in Europe. There's certain brands of hot chocolate. That's almost like a custard. It's like very, very thick and I would have one a day
when I was travelling, it's it's putting melted down. If it's putting I'd be all for it if but it's I'm sorry if that if that's what you're putting it. No, it's there's a slight difference. But no, it was just it was very milky. Anyway.
That's really disappointing. But the day rob me about the Spotify thing
I was trying to remember what I went through, because you wanted to create us. The Daily talk show, Spotify playlist, which I already have done. You have been up there like I can. Can you look up Mr. 97? What's on our playlist at the moment? Well, I'll be surprised you pay from Spotify. Mr. 97. Nope. You can still access Are you free version where you have to just run and I run adblock. So I don't know if
the system as well. He also raised the age is past the paywall. Does he
know I think it's on the monetizable I don't read newspaper anyway. What do you use? The Verge Really? Only tech? Yep.
So unless it's related to Samsung's iPhones or the latest iOS, well, I think we're in a bit of a bubble layer. What do you what do you consume? Like what forms of media Do you can see? That's a good question. of our podcast. Yeah, yes. Okay. That's my number one.
Think I definitely am just fully put a plug podcaster Okay, yeah, yeah, so shameless for all my celebrity gossip. Yeah.
Now now that I'm on
that radio as well listen to radio just in the car. I'm going somewhere. read an article. Yeah, online I will. But I feel bad because it's like if it's gone viral or if it's you know, something that's, you know, been talked about on a podcast. I'll read it, but otherwise I'm not searching it out. Sure. Yeah, it's interesting as well. I tell you what, growing up our house always had paper side like newspaper Yeah, stack of them old ones in the in the laundry if we ever needed to need it. Yeah, you would have to Yeah, it's we were of a generation when newspapers were still a thriving industry. I always I think the pay these things It feels like they're coming back. Now. They're not coming back when I was at my it's still in the spirit. If you didn't know I put on a speed, again, is amazing. 20 kilos Amai. There's a lot of points.
But the it was hard because to make a fire you need Why did you go fires? Why I made the fire? I was joking I fucking heard about it yes you need to ride it alive you need paper
Do you miss alive yeah you know what did I say? Like if someone shoots in the forest did the what's the anyone Did he really shit yeah what is the tree fell on the tree falls in the forest and no one says a tree so it is a tree tree really full of Tommy and Tommy makes a spit but didn't instal a storey doing Instagram Live and mentioned four times on the show didn't really happen. But to build a fight you need paper to then build up the little, you know, NTP and then and so it gets to the you know the the the mission ignites from the inside and then goes out. We had no fucking paper. I was like did you have any paper? We're at a house and it was my mates rental property. And I just for some reason if I'm in a house, I feel like there's going to be paper there. But then I was like, do you have a spade? And then I just realised he had none of this shit. That
I had growing up that I just you know, you're in a fucking apartment. Exactly, exactly. That's okay. Yeah, I've got paper though. just random bits that I could find to use. Because I mean landscaping those fucking magazines from the bullies. What are those stupid ones? Oh god the one that it's such a thing from her childhood. It's like thing from growing up she gets it and it's like the recipes and then she rips out the paper and puts the ones she wants and keeps them but then the framework that totally out he loves the calls when the calls are even better Yeah, you guys can find Pinterest
it's old school but there's no paper so we don't have paper these days. Well, it's like the What is it? The Woman's Day that a woman's weekly.
You read this I didn't know that. I do like the bakery like this that I feel like I say people doing close to storeys Yeah, where there's, but they didn't they do like once a year or something. They'll do a big record.
People like the famous capable Yeah.
Yeah, yeah. Now she's my that she chocolate cake. That's right. My grandma's recipe so I really rip. The my mom was obsessed with face painting though.
She prided herself on being like that would take that like to tag like, especially with Lion King in the early 90s everyone wanted to be alive and and so that was very much why anything's changed. kids want to be live. Yeah, kids love it. Do you have your own face paint? No, I don't want to have to walk the face paid off. How annoying would that be late at night? It's really annoying, you know? Time professional storey and not really yeah, so I used to be a face painting fairy three
kids play centre when I was in high school, and it would have been a uni and yeah, I used to do that. But I saw I really got like an aversion to it because the kids would be all sweaty like I used to run
and all of their face paint would just like
melt off and I have to like paint this sweaty faces. It was like it stunk in there. So yeah, I just said to my kids, sorry. It's not a real thing. It's
like my dad lied about the fact that I'm, and I was like old enough that he shouldn't have been lying.
Was he calling the other day and Lyft those messages? He say, sorry. Yeah, it could have been. Sorry. Sorry about that. No, it was about dry ice. Yeah. Because I was making a film like I was old enough to I was at VCA doing a short course. And he told me that you need a licence to use dry ice. Because I wanted to like get a heap of dry ice for the same will dry ice rather than smoke. Smoke lifts dry ice stays low ground. Yeah, it's awesome. And he'd had it for 40 years. Didn't many years ago. Yeah, they were like it was like Dracula themed or whatever. I mean, to handle the dry ice you need to be an adult. Yeah, it was a lot of fun because you could put like hot kettle and like you wouldn't like
Hot water and it would go crown it. Okay. But yeah, so I was going around telling people at the film school um, I had to try it because you need a licence. complete bullshit. Yeah. So like the lines can, ya know, he's tried to deal with the tag and tested for rental property. man he like, might you need a licence tagging tested? Well, you know, the funny thing was what's not funny, but when three day deal was cutting his hand and I thought that something electrical was happening. Yeah, the first thing I thought about was the fracking tag and tested thing. Yeah, he's a bit of a liability. He nearly fell over backwards over this wouldn't thing over here. I mean, it's been there forever. And he's seen it. It's
Yes. Yesterday afternoon, you were frantically on last minute.com
be any Could you be any more of a cliche?
That's your anniversary and you're on.
You've got the you got the flower but why don't we start from the start just how much of a
Cost of faculty is an anniversary shows. I mean, does it really matter when it's done? Because it's always there. I mean, I last minute I am classic a minute. Yeah, yeah. But but you got to the morning. I mean, this was in the car body, I mean run body up into the daikon, and I'm just in there, I'm like, Okay, I'm gonna find some flowers to send it today. And I found this really great little company that just sends like this little which was I can't remember nice at some bunch something bunch. Anyway, it's just a nice little glass thing with some like a fresh pic of the day. really lovely. And you can leave a little note. So I did that entity my details. And I entered in her phone number because it was like what's the number put her phone number and then it went down and I kind of went through it and the night she got in the car then I drive to work and then I she jumps out of it so she jumped out then I kind of went back over like all look I can put my number because she can call me Yeah, lucky. I put my number because
As soon as I press submit, it sent me a text message.
Exactly that and so anyway the flowers ended up dropping 3pm But that day round two o'clock I was looking and to be fair, I was only on last minute calm, whatever it's called booking site to compare the prices. Sure. So I was finding prices is very funny. You're looking quite anxious trying to sort this stuff.
out What did you say Miss 97 it was it was it you sent me and then we had that really good laugh around? It was like
it almost if we were filming that scenario, it was like a bad philosophy. Yeah, yeah. It's like what are you doing by trying to get something last minute last minute, but I
want to say if anyone says anything funny in the office. We just can't mention it on the sheet like it's
Because I think I think we've ever had a moment was funny in the office that we've been said on the show. That's been funny. I didn't agree. You want to entertain you'd get willing for what we do seven shows a week scraping the barrel that's one every two weeks.
was I ended up calling the place where we wanted to go into the Deke Smith so when I was travelling, I remember one of those ladies do you remember this? Deke Smith did a big campaign where it was like,
cold lot p hotels and motels fact booking.com and all that sort of thing. Dude, did you ever say this and that sounds juicy. Well, that was saying don't he was saying and if you don't know who he is, he's an Aussie entrepreneur. Old School dude started like a treasure. Yeah, yeah. What was his business? Like? He wasn't knowledge he was almost like a what takes me to electronics. I think he sold off time ago electronics business, but any standard dick cheese? Yeah. Well, yeah, he did all this food right. He did. Also
That was related to his name. Yeah. And it was about the issues I think he had was some of the most iconic products, like Tim Tams owned by on it, which I believe is an international company, I think, all was bought by an international company, Vegemite, owned by craft, another sort of international thing. And so his whole thing is it's like, trying to take the, the Australian products and say I'm actually going to give you an Australian version that's made here and all that sort of thing. Yeah. And so he did do this big video, which people like my parents got right behind. Yeah, around like calling up your hotel rather than using a booking. So I called the hotel hotel where we are staying. And I was shooting to book this place. But I wanted to see if there was any difference from calling. And I'm so glad I didn't book online. So who was that? What was the booking service that you were calm? Or there was what if booking.com I think he
dot com yeah anyway there was different facts it up it's like news.com is quite upset it said there on on booking.com it was like no booking fee or something like Okay, anyway I called up and I ended up spending more money than I was going to but we got stay and dine package that's good so for the room that we got 330 bucks on booking.com we paid 360 and we got $100 credit for the pub downstairs. So you can have you're not drinking those He can't even that's perfect that's why will be probably won't even spend it all Amy might have a glass of wine or something but 50 bucks a head we're gonna it's like a Parma desert and a drink cave and potentially a little pub squash. Squash is probably the the that actually reminds me the restaurant the other day, brain I went in which is very rare. You went to a restaurant they went into a restaurant into one yes, I will actually do it was suiting takeaway but it was
Typical race. And so what we said we said, Are we just in the neighbourhoods that
is more convenient. The Newbridge is crazy. Yeah. But the other thing I know, this was the the crazy bit. We said, Can we get this fish pack? Especially the fish and chip shop? Yeah. And they said, Oh, no, sorry, that's an Uber rates only special. Was it so be sure you just said it because you know from the look at the menu, that's like the only menu that we have reference to is African. Uber Eats white like so really was. Well, as in braising the car. I was like, let's say braids and praise like, okay, literally just Should we just not go in? I say what you mean so so we went in and but brains like we, because we normally operates it. Yeah, we know that menu. So it's like baby onesies fish pack or whatever you normally get and why that same thing. It's stupid that it's like guys overeat is costing you like fucking 30% to play. Yeah, just get like what what did you do? Did you push for it? I think I just got like this little burger and
But you know so anyway
I don't like to be honest I was in the car but I had to make a decision while I was standing was actually in a bus own had my husband's on gronk move what I can't stand by side by side with parking yeah no no stopping that's what was it you and I that were talking the other day yeah when we were parking like when we're going around Melbourne road a big cycling event better to go into a no standing area than it is to a disabled yeah
yeah have to have to Yeah, I looked down upon people yeah, Park in the disabled people do it at the gym. And to be fair, it was once not a disabled space. And now they've made it disabled. Okay, yeah. Anyway, thank you so much later for these cakes. Yeah, thanks for any any questions saying is you're the first person on the couch with a microphone is the microphone you put me on the spot. Hey, what has been
Your favourite thing that you've actually done together since starting this
jona guy fast Why should I? Yeah, I mean,
this first thought crate I'm referencing Craig bro ZR the first the first thought versus the first thought is our America trip. Yeah, where we met Seth Godin, it's a highlight always will be, yeah. Love him. And what I was thinking is even that day, because it was Seth Godin. And then we bumped into Chase Jarvis Yeah. famous photographer in the streets of New York. And then we went to the post malone. Oh, yeah. And then we had at Buckingham and rz guy killing it in New York City. And so that was a big day. So he was sick. He went feeling like I'd lost my voice. I literally had to stop talking between beats It was so horrible. Anyway, so that said, so part of it right? It's like, if I didn't lose my voice, it would have been a great day. Yeah, probably. Probably the same. Yeah.
It's like it says part of the whole part of the journey is part of the storey. The second thought, though, is
I think just being able to to have a shared vision on something that's, you know, the shared vision is it right? So I have what I want to create, you have what you want to create, you want your life to be a certain way, I want my life to be a certain way. But we've managed to do it together and, and build out this in the team. That's what I love the most, because I always obsessed over wanting to build a team and, and it's all and I think the thought of it
is premature, but it's how you then plant the seed to make it happen and bring into fruition. So it's like, so many things in my life. I've obsessed over something. And I just has to ruminate. So it's like being patient, and having a lot of thought around us, brings it to life for me with a bunch of action. You know, it's the only way if you really think about what you want. I think even the Sunday Sunday night for me when I was like doing the Seth Godin book but
We had three day deal missing I seven working on the website like we're all doing stuff. And like, isn't it amazing that we can all be doing things individually that's working towards the biggest thing? That was really cool. Yeah. created a family. Yeah, yeah. Yeah. sad when you lose one of your children. I know exactly. Well, we'll have him on FaceTime. Yeah, we'll chat about me. Yeah. Anything else about your planning process? Do you do like before I got here today? Was there a lot of like, planning and chat for hours of maybe not?
Well, I mean, I think that that's the area that we're trying to work. Yeah. So we don't do we do very little. We have. And so yesterday show, this is how I feel anyway.
There's a certain layer of luck that's involved with this style of format. And so what that means is it's not so much planning but it's creating the correct headspace to be in and so we don't need to have 100 storeys.
But we need to be like entering in the right sort of mindset. Yes, I think yes, I was a good example of
we can disregard all the storey stuff. Not so i think but you still, I felt like flat. And so I felt that I couldn't lie. It was hard for me to bring something good to the show. And so part of it was, okay, I'm going to spend five minutes before you got here thinking about like, oh, what do I care about? What could we talk about are the gratitude thing would be good. It's a normally just a one or two thoughts that lead into it. But there's anything? Yeah, yeah, I think for a long time, we planned a lot more, I think. And we had to because we did 100 episodes where I was remote. So I was overseas and so
at, sometimes at six in the morning, or 530 in the morning, my time or 536 in the morning, Tommy's time, you would say like on our Trello ideas being populated, and that was a white. It was a security blanket.
For us knowing that like, because we hadn't seen each other all day, we would only speak when we're doing the show. And that was really until the I think near the end, we actually started like, talking business and what what we're planning. In hindsight, it's actually the perfect approach for a show that produces a lot of content. So they're doing every day like that. It makes sense to do that. I didn't think I did, I think to
do what we do not plan a shitload and have a few pieces, but then being out of it, I feel like we hit us, we hit a point where we, I feel like it was, you know, like, we could get into conversation and it's like a dance where we don't actually have to have too much but we can still I'm surprised we can even still talk after this many episodes of the show that to me the beauty of the show is that I'm improvisational off the cuff, but I think it to me, I kind of think about it like Seinfeld, in that when you have established characters, it doesn't matter what the content is, you know, like if people are into who you are
The four of you then it's like, I just want to hear what you like whatever you're doing doesn't matter. Yeah, I saw Ram. Bobby Tarantino logic. Season nine, Bobby, EZ for anyone that's logic. He's rapper, one of the biggest rappers in the world at the moment.
white boy whose father is black, so he's biracial. So he uses the N word as a white guy. You can get away with it. He's like, top 40 man, he's like, what? Top 10 at the moment, he's got a hit with Eminem. he's a he's the he's the new version of Eminem. Like a white guy can read really fast and he's he's got some swag. But he's not gangster or anything like that. So he but he's in a he's in like a real rap genre. genre. And anyway, I watched his He's like, he's got this Bobby boy TV or something. But I watched this episode last night like 20 minutes and I just jumped through it. And it was shit. It was horrible. Bad action right?
Well no bit of everything it was a bit boring but I also as long saying shit from a production standpoint I'm not saying he she were very critical about content from a from a different angles not trying to rip out the person that I was I I like him and I'm watching it so then I was like okay if if it is shit he's got an audience huge audience that would just love it because it is him and it's hard when you're like if someone out there has no following or no audience and decides to start blogging their applicants these people who have a tapped in audience of millions and millions and then they start doing something so they automatically so it's a it's a weird it's a weird one. Well, it's like the instance that I guess like Insta storeys. I just like someone talking to a camera. There's not much production value to it. And so then it becomes personality or like, you know, yeah, something beyond Yeah, yeah, I think yeah, I think it's interesting. I think that the other thing too is it's like it's easier having attained
Because then the, I guess the important bit is to be able to, it takes the pressure off any individual person, because we always know that if Tommy is having a shit day, it doesn't necessarily need to be a shit show. And if I'm having shit data doesn't a shit show, and we've got like, a supportive network that we can throw to and say, What do you think about this Mr. 97? Which m buys us a little bit of? Yeah, you know, but also there's, it's, I think it makes for an interesting, we don't have that much interesting shit to say every day. And so having the different stimulus, I think makes a difference as well. And cake. Yeah, thank you. So actually, the episode To be honest, it's been very good. If you've listened this far, please take a screen grab, put it onto your Insta storeys. It helps us know that, you know, people are actually watching it. Yeah. And the stats aren't just bots. That'd be such a such a shame. Yeah, we're actually IAB compliant, which means that all of the stats are audited and shit so we know that it
It's legit and mentioned.
It's an interesting it's an interesting fact, if you're if you're a podcaster make sure that whatever podcast host you are using, has IAB certified stats, because what it means is like when we went we went from non certified to certified and the graph stayed the same, but numbers go down significantly because you basically go from
them counting everything. So say at a very basic level, if Mr. 97 tried to download our show, and then halfway through, it went from Wi Fi to 4g or something, some providers might say those two downloads or things like that. So I AB means that they, they do a better job of connecting listeners and saying these are how many people you actually have listening. All I do know is and what we can be certain of right now. We have one person that listens in the flesh, she's on the couch.
Please please do send those Instagram storeys that we still leaving it open for people to send videos. Yeah definitely definitely will keep it going a little bit more. Yeah so send us a video mentioning the gronk squad say why you enjoy listening to the show maybe a little bit about yourself. We will in return send you stickers and as a disclaimer we will be putting it up in front of us on video forever. So please keep that in mind as well.
