It's a daily Talk Show Episode 428 What's going on guys? What's happening?
Happy start to the way we can banter
happy into the week. It's been a great week we've got my MRI we do have mile a bit of a life update before I get to the mail. Finally locked in a suburban house. I'm excited. Well, we did move into the burbs episode. I mean, got a few people messaging me saying be great, you know, I've been out anyway, locked it in. And my mate lives in the same suburb. And I messaged him and told him the news. And he said, how close I he said, I've just moved that and I didn't know he said, I went literally half ways Krispy Kreme.
Sorry, I meant how close it was friends,
a good friend. But I'm now telling you our geography. geographical distance between the two. Yeah, halfway is is Krispy Kreme. And so he's probably like a kilometre away, which is great. But anyway, he said he knows all about great places. He says, I'll take you around. There's a Greek cake shop that's open really light. Which appeals to me, man.
Yeah, but it is at the start of the suburb and you're in the burbs? And I saw photos of you when you were in the Oh, yeah, not. Not everyone goes that way. But yeah, there are establishments open. Yeah, would promote cake eating after 9pm. Or sometimes I
liked in the cat for a, like a bit of a light. Not when I said like nine after nine. Just a little session on the computer doing some emails. And it's nice when there's cafes and shit. I'm in New York City, you've got shit open 24 hours. The places that I have been to doing that a Mac is because I do have a cafe range. You know, it's like a you can you can have a coffee. You don't have to have a fucking burger. Anyway, so I've got that going on. And the other babies. I'm on Tick Tock.
I really Congratulations. Thanks. Just.
I've got I got 1000 got 1400 views on one of my videos, few comments. I don't know who these kids are, though. Yeah,
what is what did you do? Yeah, what was it?
So I made all these videos probably years ago. So when I was at Shepperton and it sort of in that mindset of creating small little 15 second back when Instagram actually only let you put up 15 second videos, so forced all these people to create really short micro content. And so I did it. And I've got them all in my phone still. And so I'm just I'm just posting what I did. Yeah. And so and they work
do you still have the Snapchat YouTube channel?
I don't even know if I have the password to the Snapchat,
Josh and it's probably still out there. Still annoying for you. Actually, I feel like going down a rabbit hole. I want to say how different you were then versus now?
Definitely. I mean, I was just given a severe crack, which it makes it makes me cry It's better than just giving you little bit
of a crisis of the cracks
via cracked like the fracking was quite it opened up you know, it's a big crack. And so I'm on Tick Tock so I mean, if I blow up on Tick Tock
so be you know, my daily talk show blow up on that I understand with all your old content.
Yeah, I just I just thought why not to post it out there. Get it done. So I might become too big for the show.
There's a there's an envelope here. And it says IRN which is the big one of the big radio networks, top three, top three in Australia. So I'm curious. What does it say on the back?
Says the address three Byfield street unauthorised absolute shit has location has been wanting to get out of there. I went in had a few meetings there it is so far away. It's so far costs to get from Bondi there in tolls, like 25 bucks. Oscar Gordon, who's been on the show worked there. He drove out there every single morning. The only good thing about doing the morning show is that you're driving at 4am in traffic and driving home but it's really expensive in a bad location. But they they still get people going out there and all the big celebs?
Well, I was wondering if it was Southern Cross on stereo, I would assume that it was them giving us a job offer for today FM breakfast,
or it somehow they've given us a redundancy and we didn't even work out
and so what is it again? So it's
a big face.
It's it's Mitch, Mitch till midnight.
And so how did we get this amazing headshot cover? Look at that a headshot. So Mitch is definitely I wonder if that's one of the official if you are in radio, the sort of plan a day wherever you are in the business.
Yeah. Gets a headshot. I mean, yeah, I think people are moving away from sort of those. I mean, we are definitely from the no background it's just a human floating. Yeah. You know, with like bright clothes on because I think it does give the illusion of sort of like it is old school media but so you're saying this you reckon this is he's taken the promo shot maybe that he got for that but the interesting thing is the reason why they do it is because they just transplant people together to maintain you know, if it's going from Tommy and candy to Tommy and Stacey, which it did, and they just used Stacy's photo from up in cans, and then my photo from share photos don't put them together now but I'll tell you how we got this Mitch fellow on Instagram, and I saw him just sending these out. Like I think it's taking the piss are usually
better gear wise, saying obviously,
obviously, because you're a banker, if you send out these with fucking no thought that people are thinking I think it's great.
Nobody ever saying it is a job. I think Mitch is a banker. We don't know if it's a joke.
Mitch, I'm sorry. I do think you're a banker if you are doing this purposely,
but I think it is.
Anyway, so I said to Mitch cuz he posted it as a joke. So I knew it was joke I said, I just literally put our P o box address in didn't say anything else. Just put out a box. And he sent it. You're a fucking legend, Mitch. You're an absolute legend. So this is going up on my desk.
Did you guys ever send the letters to celebs or request autographs growing up? I mean, these kids
around this, Josh? Yeah, I don't know what mail is. You've seen the struggles of missing ICF and doing postage your eyes on that?
Did you ever have k zone magazine? Or? You say
you don't? Do you know what that grow is not chase TV? No. Okay. So this is the thing. Well, there was chase TV, which was a cartoon show and awesome hosts.
Yeah, I wasn't really into Chase. I was more today show. Show sort of ourselves. Also.
Either one. If you're a kid and actually acted like a child, you've act like an adult since you were born. People would send into the lock bag PO blah, blah, blah, whatever it was.
You South Wales. All the Nickelodeon ones were
Yeah. And so people would send legit mail. I'd send out send in like, you know, letters.
things, I guess I don't
know, like, drawing drawings
yet. It's the modern day, Casey nice that, you know, unboxing like that guy gets so much mail. Should we do
a big push for that? I mean, we've still got the glitter bomb that's sitting on our shelf that we haven't done anything about
it. There's a reason why it was paying the ICF will be fucking annoying. Someone's indisputable. And it's Yeah. And what happens?
Yeah, it's like
a box 400. Abbotsford. Victoria 3067. Which is stuff.
Thank you. Like, like me
talk about on the show. I will say the thing that we might call your banker
for Mitch is that this is free. He's taken office supplies, which I mean, the barrier for someone that doesn't have like it's a huge if you send mail nowadays. Your respect that shit. Like you got to go to the post office member our conversation in this office is like, Where should we get letters from? Oh, we got office works. And then it's like someone has to physically go there. And then and then I mean printing. He's used company printed.
Oh, yeah, definitely. That looks like a prepaid envelope. Yeah. So he's, he's, he's got it all dialled in. So there's something Hey, that. What is that?
I don't know. I'm just gonna stick around. It was meant for someone else. I know. It's just to see through bit, I guess cap it at the CFPB that's good.
Yeah, I'm ready to deal what's been going on?
What's happening in the world of three day deal? Not much just starting to finish up.
Now. There's a thought you saying starting afresh after?
After? After Sydney
for that? I mean, yeah, but there's there's basically there's one full week left of my time in Australia. That's crazy. Nine days.
Really? Yeah. And upon reflection, How you feeling? I just
can't wait to come back now.
Like, come back to Australia.
Yeah, come back to Australia. Like I want I want to get home. Yeah.
Yeah, it's generally get time The sooner gets back. Is it you think?
Yeah. Because of the sooner the sooner I get back the sooner I can finish school. Yeah, sooner I can finish school, I can
come back. And so where do you what like, after saying, Sydney? Is that where you want to live? No. What do you want to live here? Now in Melbourne?
Yeah. I don't necessarily know where and Melvin but I like the beaches in Sydney. But I'm not much of a beach person. Like I would rather I would rather walk around the city and kind of just absorb the vibe.
Yeah, it's going. It's a good point, isn't it? Everyone says Sydney's the best because of the beaches. What about the unpopular view that people don't mind? beaches?
Yeah. You know, I saw that. I don't like beaches. But I mean, like, I wouldn't mind going there for a weekend. Yeah. Right. Like, stay at a hotel. Not a fancy hotel, just like whatever I could afford. But I don't think I would be happy long term and in Sydney, why are you laughing? at me to say
that? That was just the fancy hotel. fancy hotels. They have big rentals.
He hasn't done
anything. Anything else? To put a end of this chapter the end of end of the week?
Ah, not really. I mean to the week. What is it into? He just said into the week? Yeah, Sunday. Yeah.
indoctrinated into it. You
think that Sunday? Me I get it.
Get it done feels you
know, it's because we're doing seven days a week. And this feels like the last one. It's but when we were doing when we were doing Friday as our last day, Sunday felt like the Sunday.
And I read recently about why there's weekends. I mean, now it's just like it is the thing we do. So it says getting time off to worship on Sundays was fairly easy since observing Sunday is a day of rest was a long standing Christian tradition. Due to a large number of Jewish immigrants in the late 1800s. factory owners also had many workers who wanted Saturday, the traditional Jewish day of rest off instead. So it has become the thing over the years, I'm going to say it in hundreds. And now it's just the thing that we don't think about
this is we're live for the weekends, the fact that you have that.
You know, when I say I said, Have you got that in your life, not? What are you doing over there?
What did you actually type into you?
Know what I say? Why is the weekend you write that? Just then I wrote Why is it awakens into Google and press go? Why you got so fasten it up and started writing. I did this and then I wrote it down on my hip and then I broke
They're easily impressed here at the data talk show. And
good google home. You got one yeah, it's going great. I absolutely love it and I'm wanting to get them on the house. I want to sell my son us
a show. So what why? Why do you have them? Why do you have multiples of them?
Well, because I Why do you have multiple Google Home? Yeah. Well, because you need to be able to hear things in multiple parts of the house. apartment. So you
have is it more than one Google Home? Or is it a Google Home and Google Home minis?
And now Well the thing is that Google Home mini like the speakers aren't necessarily that great.
They mini Yes, a mini version. Because I've got now I've never used one before.
Yeah, so you how many Google homes did you buy?
Now have one haven't bought any more yet, but I will buy like so they do a thing called Google max. And which is like, sign us speak but it's got a sub in it's like a it's like a B it's like a proper because the thing is that everyone's like if you can freak out and say how well like if you spending $600 on a whole setup or whatever is a chunk of money. What about the days I was at like a Thai restaurant the other day? And I just saw on the corner? Mike a stereo? Like an actual like a with the two cables coming? Yeah, yeah, the big volume knob also Yeah, and I was just like those on the CD stack wasn't like a stack it was like the spin sort of idea. Yeah. And so you know I'm thinking about doing it but the interesting thing was breeze brother has just got here sold his because he's so paranoid about
people listening and listening and what do we what are we worried about?
Yeah, what are you worried about? Like are you worried about people listening?
what is she jumped after listen to I love that
idiot thoughts it's full on like like they're literally like cases of people having sex and all this different stuff and they're just listening to it which is little pervert
Yeah. So it's not perfect because maybe is that loud? Not like it's any noise it makes up right
like and so that they have keywords like Hey Google or whatever but I mean, it's still it still goes off. You're going to enjoy the cycle of people if
anybody any boy Yeah.
Wow. You can you can set it
to our audience. If you are if you're listening right now and your Google has gone off for Mr. 97 please do an Instagram storey.
But it's like it is interesting the worst was the Hey Siri which is no one else will work for no one else. When I say that in the car, which only are not khatami's I was thinking will get me but when I was listening back to our podcast like a real narcissist, I said, Hey, Siri, and it just got on this loop. Because it goes hey, Siri, and then I stop it. And then when you go back to the podcast, it rewind 10 seconds, and gets back to that point where it says hi, Siri, just guys.
It was like the Millennium bug is essentially what it was.
That was a crock of shit, wasn't it? Yeah,
actually. Yeah, I guess like, nothing happened. The idea was that like the dates were fact at something and
you were born 2007 1999. Okay, so you are one just get nearly 100 over one.
Yeah, I wouldn't. I would have been one month, one month old. One. I'm so sorry. 19 years old. Yeah,
month old man. I don't know this kid. I think he was born the year that he was conceived, which is the weird bit because he is you're pregnant in one year. And then the baby actually comes in XE. But as soon as you see the bump growing, you think it's one of us, but you think it's like, just when he when he was there from you in existence? Because he's just this big little blob in the belly? I guess. Yeah. Anyway,
man Sunday. It's been a long way. It's been
a big week. I tell you, the guests that we've had been Lovely. Lovely. Man. Me. Me, Lou on tomorrow. Yeah. She's fascinating. So I was writing something before and it was writing about, and I had deal check it because he's a better writer than me. Yes. And it was just about the day that we had in New York City. And it was the day that we went to interview Seth Godin. That day was fucking electric. Yeah. When you think about and I wrote, like, I just was writing about that day. And I was getting so excited just thinking about what it happened. We got up at 4:30am we get on the train. We're heading out of New York City, up along the Hudson River, it seemed to be Seth Godin. fact, that was amazing as it is, after that, we end up bumping into Chase Jarvis, who we've both watched, you know, for years, and he's right where we were about to record a podcast outside of the flat iron building. And then we asked him to come on. And then we bumped into post malone like that, like, crazy shit happens in one day.
Yeah. And do you remember how you felt on that day? She does? Yeah,
yeah, I was it. My voice was cooked by the end of it. And I felt so shit. But looking back, it's like, look at what happens when you put yourself out there. You wait. We said recently, when you look back, when we were in New York City. We had it like a quarter of the audience we do now. So what what business did we have doing any of that shit? But that's the thing you could always look at What business do I have interviewing says, What business do I have going to New York City to do this thing? But it's not about that. It's like you've got it all. I think that's in the early days. You always feel like that, that. It's that's the it's almost imposter syndrome. It's like what rice do I have? It's like, you've got as much right as the next person.
Yeah. 97 Spain talking about an international trip that doesn't involve us.
Ah, what's the one that I brought up? Like a week, two weeks ago?
Yeah. Well, no, I don't know what it was. But you gotta shine. You know, you got a plan that doesn't involve us.
Oh, well, I mean, I want to I want to go to South America with Jason Andre. Coconut cry. Yeah. And go and go backpacking for maybe like a week, two weeks,
the boys awake in Copacabana doing a bit of,
you know, what are you imagining? Like, what's the what's the vibe? What are you hoping for?
I actually, I have no idea. I feel I just feel like, I mean, we're sort of watching a lot of guys. And that's like in Mexico and South America and Columbia and stuff. So that's, that's exciting. But yeah, I mean, the there's some cool, like, landscapes and stuff down there. So just assessing all that at different culture.
That'd be cool. Be finding yourself looking at content online to get yourself excited.
Now, I don't really I think Andre, Andre is doing that that more but I think his his enthusiasm gets me excited. So I don't really look at content around sort of Naka.
He hasn't left the country by himself. Now, let alone the state by itself. Yeah. So how do you feel about backpacking? I mean, backpacks already sounds like a nice
thing. Whenever I think backpacking, I think, like longer than a week, what
do you think? It would look the definition for you?
Yeah, I mean, it'd be doing it's just doing a trip cheaply. Like, I mean, you've whether whether you actually bring like a suitcase or an actual like, hiking pack? I don't I don't know. But it's, it's just staying in like hostels and that sort of stuff. 50 bucks,
living, living out of a backpack?
Yeah, literally. Yeah. There's a great book. I think it's like, how to live off $50 a day or travel on $50 a day, which is very cool. Excluding
including the whole thing. Yeah, that's right now in the prep
that needs to go into that. Yeah, like it sounds like a great headline. I'm sure you could do it, but I just haven't think any of those places you want to stay in in South America that you want to leave. After you know, you want to live. You're on the live if you're walking away. I
mean, how much is it backpackers there? Do we think I've got no idea.
All right, good. No idea. Like 30 Americans 30 USD, and I reckon that's like a cheap, cheap, cheap, I reckon to be up to like 8590 USD nice
for some of them. So my favourite site before I went away, because I did three and a half months with brain Europe. Last year, there's a site called Nomad list, and I'm on their slack as well. But Nomad lyst basically has all of the places around the world that's like the most affordable, they basically have all different filters or considerations. So if you have a look at an acronym, what is no beds? It's just like, a nomadic lifestyle. Or, like it means like, not being attached to like,
you're just travelling. Yeah,
like you're related to travel. Right? But I'm saying is the definition relating to travel or is it just been
it's relating to not having a home I think no matter I'll tell you the the actual definition because I related to the person that's leaving this sort of carefree life moving around. Yeah. No, no, it's a it's a member of people. of a people that travels from place to place to find fresh pasture for its animals at all. Yeah, absolutely. A person who does not stay long in the same place, a wonder. And so I'm Nomad lyst is interesting at some sort of begins the tech space. So tech people who like developers and stuff who have work that they can do anywhere in the world remote work, you can go to Nomad list. So again, some of the things that it's got like an overall Nomad score, they call it then they give you a cost of living, internet, fun, temperature, humidity, air quality, safety, quality of life, people density, walkability, peace, traffic safety, hospitals, happiness nightlife, free Wi Fi in the city a place to work from AC or hating. It goes down to like, even stuff like LGBT friendly. So cool. Pretty awesome. And so for instance, like you can go and you can look for instance, and see where the best, like if you want to go from month away, you can see the the cheapest places to live. So Budapest comes on up top in regards to all the but the boxes so it was like the cost is 1600 and 80 a month. us so you can live there, including all accommodation and stuff. I mean,
I wonder what the cons like? Well, the thing is that you know, you're North Baldwin, huh? Yeah,
no, but I think that like some of these places like especially Poland, like Warsaw is high up here. But when brain I went to Krakow really inexpensive, like you're talking maybe say something that would cost a few hundred dollars in one city might cost you like 70 bucks, type of deal. And then you look at the food costs night. So thing, but that could be an interesting way. I feel like from a travel point of view. Yeah, like working out where to stay, and being able to have stuff that's beyond just working out. Okay, the it's not purely the cost. The other cool thing is people are putting in the average, like costs for different items to so in Warsaw, it costs at 85 cents for 300 mil. Coke. Yeah, a beer for 500 mil is $2 56. Is that is that euro though? Now that's us, you know, a coffee is $1 73. us. So yeah, it's interesting. I think that that's sort of like a fun I can get when it comes to travelling, I like spending the time going on to those sites. There's another one, like Star Alliance, which is like a bunch of airlines, and you can go on there and do a world trip. And so basically, like, they have different tiers, depending on how many continents you do, and you can just like click through, and it will give you a price and you can click and actually it has the itinerary there and then you can you can book it
because I wouldn't you know, when you see those flight deals, you see the advertisement for the flight deal, then I can never find the fucking Yeah, but searches dates like rainbow line, you know if he if the winds blowing one
way or you can play around with it, which is cool. Yeah. So like,
Yeah, he's like, if you could find so 1600 bucks. in Budapest, you reckon you could find the accommodation that equals that? Is that like a shitty
cost to it now, like you can I think that the average? I mean, the thing is, I think the average cost of an apartment would be like, maybe six 600 USD a month. Yeah. And so then you work that out or like it could even be like 400 USD is not much money when you look at places that are like the you're only getting paid like you only get paid for work maybe maybe 400 a month living has to be fairly inexpensive. I mean,
the reality is people spend more time working how much they week will cost when they travel than they do about their own lives back home. Who can just like pull out on their phone? So my expenses for Yes, wait per month is x y&z it's which is probably alarming.
Well, I think Brian, I got way better when we came home based on that because we were thinking about it all the time. We literally have we have a spreadsheet of every, like, every city and what it cost us. And the funny thing was, it was the most expensive ones. But the two things that I that were my ones which was Amsterdam, for IBCI and New York, the two most expensive New York's if
you're not gonna, I wouldn't backpack there.
Well, that's the thing. Yeah. New York is crazy. But la was like fairly affordable. and stuff.
Yeah. How do you think Mason that you'll go? Because you have to end like I stayed in one backpackers. Yeah. In Russia to Roman Florence actually have a good friend from the one when I stayed in Florence. We just met and he was a PT from Sydney, and we got along really well. And we're still friends to this day, but I remember like, it's a handy. It's a out of the comfort zone. Definitely. Are you up for putting yourself out of your comfort zone? I mean, who's really? Yeah, for it?
No, I think I think it helps having Jason Andre there.
So just we get Yeah, we can all Yeah.
Tommy coconut oil.
Yeah, just have to hope that God cracks it and just books you guys. Yes,
you need a credit card. Will you already travelled? To idea?
Yeah, you're a smart boy.
Yeah, no, credit counsellor, young man.
That's interesting. I mean, I think that that's part of the journey in the travelling and all that sort of thing is actually the planning. I guess to your point, is it there is something fun about being like Oh, where's the cheapest? Like, where's my cheap coffee place? Cuz that's what you do when you travel. You find all these little hacks. It's like in Italy, like some places that are like so cheap to get like an apple spritz or whatever, but there's also places that are super fucking expensive tourist traps. Yeah. tourist traps are the biggest thing, right? Like, like the difference between being in like a PX and eating there versus going around a strike. But there's certain places where it's very hard not to be in one big like Venice. That's one big tourist trap. You know, actually, like the whole thing. It's like being in a theme park.
We don't have like, what's the tourist traps in Melbourne? fed square? Like there's not not to the extent like yeah, I wouldn't feel comfortable and wouldn't be that pissed off buying coffee within five K's of the city.
Yeah, I reckon it was Yeah,
you know, I reckon tourist traps that piece me off. And this is I feel like common is it's like it's never just the price. The tour it's always like, you pay more for the food and it's going to be shipped food as well. So it's like, it's not like there's ever I've never experienced a tourist trap where you've paid heaps more because your tourist and then it's like a really delicious It's always the fucking cheap straight food in Thailand where you can get the best curry Yeah, and
Yeah, exactly. vs. vs somewhere else. Yeah.
All right, babies. Let's wrap this one up.
Yep. Tomorrow the last day that you can get hoodies. Yeah, so better. Better do that. The Daily talk. I'm really fucking tired. The Dallas your show.com for such hoodies if you want to get on to them. Otherwise, we'll see you on Monday with a pre record which is with EmmyLou. See then
