It's a daily Talk Show Episode 456 Live from Sydney, Australia.
Behind it if you're watching this, watch this. It was very big. I mean either bye bye and delay. almost too much when Bobby Giambi. Hi, either way, we're at Wilma wolf behind us, if you are watching is the overflow hotel. That's where we're staying in this Sydney trip the next week. We're up here we can a bit. We've got episodes coming from Sydney. So you fired up?
Yeah, absolutely fired up is actually excited. He will be joining us later in the week. But first of all, we we flew up.
There was issues with the lounge,
which actually can't be talking. Basically.
In the lounge,
yeah, we're in a lovely hotel. And we're setting up a bit of a makeshift studio in the Oval, a hotel. And we've all got our own room. I mean, there was a high chance that we're all going to have to bunk in one room at some point in the planning of this. But thankfully, we've all got our own hotel room. And Mr. 97 strong, the short straw. We didn't draw any straws. He just gave him the short story. And that was to have the studio set up in his room.
So no farting in your in your city.
No, not that much. I tell you what, you have a lot of fiber as well, which is surprising.
I mean, you just one of the most polite people I've met. Fasting is one of those things that I mean, I just think you're a pig if you did it. You don't. And I love you.
Yesterday, we had radio Mike and jack. And I was just reflecting on that one more coming up.
And it first live performance on the show. So it's like the first musical performance which is different out of our 400 plus episodes. I was
getting right into it like you were you did some behind the scenes filming of me.
And what did I whisper in your ear Mason? in
it? What did you wish for? I
remember, I even just I just did I bumped to you and I said look at him in his element. Oh yeah. Josh, you could have sworn you were saying the 12 year old
boy inside of him. That's just loving it. I was just like moving the fader is up and down trying to get the perfect mix. I want us to do more of the musical stuff. So if you are a gronk who you're a musician or you know a great musician that music would be good for the show.
The musical the gronk
the musical the girl you're already limiting food he last night you limited we went to a place that was famous for their one major pizza night they take it up to three
meters. So you can buy a three meter pitch and I think when you think about one meter Apache light Oh yeah, I can have that. I restricted this because I was like No Let's just have let's just go the 50 centimeter pizza. And the woman said point five I think yeah 50 centimeters 2.5 Do you see how much
ball she was an international person so maybe she wasn't completely across centimeters versus meters away 50 centimeter pizza and
that's what we got downstairs at the overload the cronies have been there before Josh and I you've eaten there before?
We've spoken about it on the show because when we were doing the the job to Lulu lemon and the reason I got you to come up to city for filming was so we could record the show. That's right
but I also did some assisting work on the shoot to get that man
Yeah, well I will never forget because you were determined to put the strap on my camera.
Just any camera a $10,000 camera Yeah,
and I was like I don't know how to do is like no these are things are easy. You put the strap on anyway, the first day of taking photos and I just had it around my neck and the camera just slammed on the ground and went down some stairs which makes the race aisle
so no you don't have to talk about it.
Yeah, learn from the best the guy who doesn't five but also on Gumtree with faulty items yeah that guy yeah so we did get the one made of pizza the other we left bits we didn't need it all that time so there was this time I thought okay, no, I'm not doing this again. 50 centimeters and was all right.
No, now I'm still hungry. You it was fine. I had to look back at the
night that when we got ya I had
the Tim Tams the gummy the at the Grammy's. I had the actually the chop chop on
cookies as well.
Yeah, the savory the disease what happens when you put three gronk in a nice home where the minibar is free and all
Hola. Chop chop. But no, it's not all going to be
a deal and but without the price Yeah. What about we move flying out we met someone at the airport, our match Mr. 90 sevens walking along. We're all in our hoodies right now. And so whenever you go to tap on the shoulder or
not, so always always walking just behind you guys, as we always make, you know,
if you're in front of us,
and and and so I was just like, I was sort of like looking down at my phone. And then and then I noticed like, in my peripheral vision, I noticed this bloke come up beside me. And he's sort of like, a bit rushed like it. I panic because I didn't know what was happening. And then, yeah, and then and then Matt came up and he's like, Oh, my I'm listening to your show. And then we shook hands. And then and then he saw you guys and
yeah, so he came up to you.
Definitely show it in the blonde hair.
You can pay the way we're thankful Matt for actually saying hi. He. He was listening to the episode that we like one of our latest episodes. And he even showed us he's fine. I mean, this never happened to us. So it's kind of fucking novel. And it was
lovely. Well, having Mr. 97 followers behind reminded me of when we were having the half made a pizza.
I saw point five, I saw a white four wheel drive, quickly pull over to the curb. And the they had red and blue flashing lights.
It looked like from what I can say, what happens in Melbourne, like a random brief test. Or what first came to mind was this some kind of there's some time this is a body incident where there's like, you know, a task force of setting on a car that has a drug dealer in this what came to mind was like,
they look like Saran Yeah,
yes, they were there was a bunch of dudes all around this car and like, Oh, this is on Yes, it's flashing lights and it's on and there was a black van
and then all of a sudden you say guys with he
was gonna say piecing pieces pieces.
It wasn't blink 182
earpieces, and they were security and they had visible guns and they had badges. Yeah. And then we saw, like for people who they sort of look like politicians or something just walking along, but the amount of security that they had saved completely over the you could say one individual,
and all the guy, gray hair, sort of in a suit jacket, walking, and he could tell that he's the important one. Because there were all surrounding him. And they kind of spread out one goes ahead. It was it was full security data. Like it was crazy. And so these crises
that I've walked past is we're going to bring that up with water. And, and I said to one of the one of the people because there was actually it looked like this important person had mates there too. And then they were behind the security wall. And then one of the people I said, Oh, Who's that guy? And he just looked at me and smiled and walked off.
Over there was the other guy that said, a very important person
that was this. So then we're trying to work out who is who is the Scott,
I asked you to go up to the security and ask and you're someone who normally does that shit.
Well, these are private security detail, and they're on edge you can tell they look like they're fucking waiting for something to happen. Because that's what they therefore if something happens, and you want to meet a walk straight up, make a beeline for them, which, what are
they gonna do shoot you in the head? No, no, they never do that. But it's also been seriously what would they do?
intimidated. But the other plan that came to mind was the point five wider Yeah, 20 centimeters. The woman who? Who was yet the point five. I said to her, do you know who that is? Yeah. And then she said, No, I don't do you? And I said are no. I said he's just gone next door into china doll. She's like, my friends working there. And so she runs off. She looked real. She loved it. Yeah, she came, she looked. She looks so dodgy, cuz she was looking. And then she ran. You can see it go into the restaurant. And then she came back. What service? Yeah. And says he's Fijian politician. And so I looked it up and I found the Fiji and Prime Minister minister there looked a lot like the guy that walked in. So maybe it was a Fijian Prime Minister, either way, who's after you in in Australia, who's after you in Sydney,
or that was my point is it's like you're in Australia, like country where like, if there's not like kidnappings happening all the time. To have that level of security. Same, like a bit over the top. He's just doing it for a bit of fun.
Well, the the other side of that coin is the Australian Government have funded it. And they going Imagine if something happened to Prime Minister of another country. On our story annoying. Do you think that's Do you think that could be a possibility? Or do you think he's just spending the Fijian cash? Tonight?
Yeah, maybe they go 5050 on it, something like that?
Well, I think there is. I think these different I wish we had you had a laptop on your Tommy, we could search this app to make it seem more intelligent. But I would think,
the sites like treaties or like, the health care system, you know, there's a few countries that have cooperation.
Yeah, sure. So security. So you should be,
you know, like, I don't know what to write, but like the Australian Prime Minister, goes to the US. Do the US offer a service that says we will look after all mate. And in exchange when our old man old man comes to your country? We we need support from your whatever the military or the What's it here? What are the Federal Police? You know, we need security detail to support that and we don't pay and you know, pay,
I would love to in my lifetime be in a police escort.
Where are you going? What's happening? I don't know.
So we'd have to work that out. But I remember as a kid wanting to make films. And you can, like the Victorian police have a film department and you can pay they have all their rights, where you can basically get a cup car you can get you can have them safely of filming on like a live straight. Yeah, you can have them supporting
Yeah, I was reading a. I was reading an article that was written newspaper and there was online, there was a lot of detail for no reason. But anyway, I was in one of these newspapers. And it was talking about a ride at the Barclays house. Yeah. And inside the Barclays houses, cash and guns and drugs and also a police uniform. And I was thinking that's in the wrong hand. Yeah, dodgy, like
people dressing up as cops and it
actually I mean, if he just gone to a fancy dress and just happened to weigh one, but no, I from what I gathered, it was yet to do
some fucking serious shit. bully. You look in any films, and you've given up on these
calls as well.
It's a full day in Sydney, though. Yeah, it's blue skies. Anyway, the film film sets when they were like the police uniforms. You'll notice that they won't be wearing like a Victorian police badge. It will be a made up sort of police thing.
I mean, when I was a stripper you know, I had an American military outfit I got mistaken.
They would be something cold they would be come back from service.
I tell you what, my son be serious now. That's five. You're actually quite funny, man. You've been saying some really funny stuff. Last night. You said something really funny. And then Josh had to retell it because he knew that you'd butcher it.
series to Jesus. Remember what that was?
Yeah. But I tell you what you've been saying some funny stuff.
We've got some great guests tomorrow. Richard Wilkins, is coming on the show.
So cool. Richard Wilkins, is if you've grown up in Australia, I guess. I mean, still now. He's still on telly. You and you've watched TV. You know who Richard Wilkins is the Oregon the most famous entertainment reporter in Australia.
Yeah, definitely. And
unbelievable that we've got him on the daily talk show.
Yeah. And so he's invited us to his house. Yeah. And we're going to be at his bar. So the question is, I'm already thinking, should I be drinking?
Or to flatten? It's a straight? No for me. Look at the planes. There's a
couple of places. That's one of the cool thing about Sydney
there. It's Yeah, over the city. Because the airport is so close to the city.
So I'm a no obviously I'll take the water.
for me once in a lifetime opportunity.
As if we get a chance as if we get invited back. Wilkins bar exam. How do you feel about going to Dickies joint? I mean, you probably even gronk
you're going to dream?
Would you I mean, what would it take for you to drink Do you think and actually enjoy it? Because that's that's one thing. It's one thing to just drink because people telling you to? But what would be something that was so epic that you'll like it? I'm gonna have a drink.
KC tennis players having cigars? I can't be.
I don't know. I kind of I can actually think of something that I enjoy. Walter, I think it'd just be. I prefer not not drinking. It doesn't make me feel uncomfortable when other people that drink can say
he doesn't like the taste enough.
Yeah. I mean, yeah, it almost like a novel experience. I wonder like something that's so Oh, by the way.
Okay, who's yelling on
funds on so you can
probably turn to the NI, the probably the most appealing thing would probably be like, you know, when you're watching suits or whatever, and they close to saying suits, you know, massive like, settlement or whatever. And then they have like whiskey, big heavy glasses. I feel like that'd be the only time Conor
McGregor after fights, been a bit of a tradition that human, the owners of the UFC would drink whiskey, and then he ended up making his own whiskey. And then they drink that whiskey. I mean, he hasn't fought in a while. So maybe he hasn't drink that whiskey with him. Either way, they drink whiskey to tradition after so. So you're saying so that's insane. Is Yeah, I think what I mean, I want to do it with you. Now. I want to think like next year. I want to go to the states with the soul. That'd be nice trip. Yeah. I mean, we're on this one now going through this, but I think this could be something to hate the
hard work. Do you think we have to worry like as a guy when you do get back on the piers, do you think that you'll be? Do you think you and I will fight when you drink?
If I was drinking with you, and you were drinking, because you'd become so annoying, as I know you have before. I don't know if I would be in right when we were when you were on the surmises.
mimosas or some houses.
You were on. When we were with Josh Simon's I can tell I'm loving it. We were in LA last. So that was no but no, we're not gonna fight. I'm not going to be drinking a lot. Okay, I just said maybe some celebrations maybe marking a momentous occasion with Mr. 97. Your 21st is next year? No, this year?
No, I'm turning
2020. Sorry. And then next year.
So you're turning 21 next year? Yeah. That's a big date. We should just be moments here. Yeah. I mean, what I did on my 25th What did you do? I had a party. I won't mention details about it. But I had a job. What did you do? How do you buy? My mom and dad's farm? What do you do? I used to have a farm farm? Well, it was Yeah, it was chickens. Four and a half acre property. No chickens. We had those cows. The next door neighbor's cows brought brought they brought my next door neighbor had cows. But I brought him in. And they had the grass. But they had four and a half acres. And it was lovely. It was in farmland and they just didn't have all the you know, all the all the animals in the house on it. And a house a big you know, we had ride on mowers is great. How long? Did they have it for? Four years? I think. So
between the ages of like 17 and 21? No, no, I saw
that mom and dad sold their place when I was maybe 19. No, but you had 2008 when they got JFC. He they just sold it at the week before that is literally two weeks before I told you my story. Yeah. Now they saw the house moved up there. I turned 21 couple of years later, and we did a speed you know, great speed. Lovely, lovely salad. I was so nice. Anyway, got a whole bunch of mates up there and had some fun.
If I'm trying to imagine what Richard Wilkins house is going to be like like you imagine a bar. I'm thinking it won't. So Ben Fordham, who are also having on the show he he said, he said this out.
Yeah, I said, you gotta do it from Richards bar. So if there's a push to do it from someone's by, like, what would I envisage about eBay is just like the people that I've known as a bird, who I've known in my life to have a bar, which is just like an alcohol area, you'll be on top of like, a cabinet, or it could be even a fridge with some nice liquor on top, and then you sit down on the couch Aereo imagining something so different.
Well, I reckon
Ben was saying that he's got to two poles. So what I'm imagining is that it's going to be Doc, it's be sort of like, one pole would potentially be an indoor pole. And it would be like, really dimly lit with like a lot of disco II stuff, potentially. I don't know like a little bit under catches maybe. Yeah, maybe something that's Yeah, let the couch is definitely Yeah.
I mean, it's not that hard to get.
perfect. We've talked about perfect days before. haven't really talked about perfect houses. Or the perfect house be
something with a view something close to the beach. Something with space for birdie. To have these little toys. play outside like a nice lawn area. pool for me. Nice. I don't think I need to have one I'd rather so a spa and a sauna. Yeah, I mean, if I even if I don't have an aspect I mean perfect. Yeah, I can do what I want my perfect.
Yeah. GN so when you have a pool?
Yeah, then now that I'm thinking about it, yeah.
It's a pretty whatever you want little limiting beliefs. If you like, Nah, look, it's perfect. But let's
have the whole Now look, I have it all. And so I've just said a house with everything.
Have you ever been to a house that's got an indoor pool
there was I mean, I grew up with some kids that families were very, very wealthy. It was there was one kid who had a walking fridge it's impressive and always built into it was like a it looked like it was meant to be is just door and just like walking sounds like wasn't like a fridge in a pub with a storing sheet where you stepping over the you know, like a little leap. It was like you know a legit, and then they had a diving pool. And then they had a lawn area that had a pond in it bigger than most pools and then at the back of that had a tennis court and then an indoor in ground trampoline. Like ridiculous in how to record like an acre property.
Oh, man, I remember getting a pond at our place. Like it's installed like they it's like a it's a shell made out of like fake. Like rock material. Yeah, like put it in it's got like plumbing. And it like you can turn it off and on a big was has a little trickle
to go fishing stuff in not even my new my new place that you can turn off and on.
We don't know it's got some sort of pump thing. I can't tell where it plugs into. Have you got a barbecue? No need one to accompany the jacuzzi, which we boys gonna come out as the fire pit. In order to get that we get that in a few things denial off. You know, just is still certainly in
what's your perfect house.
One has to have a gym.
He's gonna say exactly what I said.
I feel like a big open grassy area with a bunch of trees is nice. Yeah. A pool would be sick, especially the ones that are on the same level as the ground infinity pool. Not a bow around every shot.
I like to pull that where we're staying here the overlay. Yeah. So it looks like the water is currently being a bit so it's a full pool. No, but it's a bit of a loo it's a bit of an illusion, because it's like a lip that comes up and the water spills out over it. And so then it looks like just a continuation. So it allows them to get it to the perfect level of the ground rather than just a full pool. It's going to spill out. It's to fall. Yeah. So it's Yeah, it looks this local. Yeah, there's some sequence.
Yeah, big, big open grassy area with a bunch of trays. And maybe like a star and Kevin Hart's Instagram. It was like this cool area where he had his name, like, built into the ground that like painted or something. It was like a basketball court. Some sort of like court workout area outside would be cool as well. On top of the gym.
basketball court would be sick. That'd be nice. headshot of me up on the wall. Would You Do?
Tommy? Me for 97 for me? Yeah, he's so he's perfect. Yes. Do you reckon you would ever have memorabilia
of the daily talk show? That'd be cool.
And what point sorry, what point? Can you start doing memorabilia? I think with six months off.
What do you think?
That What are you thinking?
It's a silly question. I mean, memorabilia.
memorabilia. What does it mean? memorable Liguria, memorable, to be memorable?
I mean, I don't know about seek, I would say like five year mark. Okay. Five, five years, seven years and 10 years. only have three runs a fair mobility.
Okay, so we should lock something in?
Well, we're still quite a while away from our fifth year. Yeah.
I've been thinking a lot with Andy laboring on Friday. about him talking about the plane, the pilot stuff. him just fucking learning how to fly a plane. You want to do it?
Yeah. You think you'd be good at it? I think
you love sitting.
Yeah. But your analytical, you thought you think a lot and it requires a lot of thought requires a lot of focus, which I think you could get if you applied yourself to something like this. But I think yeah, I think that'd be good. I mean, it's just it's a money. Some it's, I think it costs a 50 grand. Yeah. I mean, the good thing is it's it's
the plane is expensive.
I mean, but you can borrow ones, you can hire them. So, I mean, look into it, dude.
I think it'd be a great challenge. I think as we talk more more about, like hobbies and doing stuff like, it would be
pretty epic. I did say the other day on the news. There was a pilot, trainee, and then the actual pilot teaching him. The pilot passed out on the fly. And so hate the train. He had to land the whole plane. And it was only like his second flight or whatever. And so the ground control had to like walk him through how to land the plane.
Oh, that's ridiculous. Just Sure. Australian Federal Police car. They just went power really good. And then I saw for motor police motorbikes go past so maybe maybe the
recreational pilot license 12 Grand
12 grand grand, which they haven't outlined. What that doesn't include. That's not
including lessons. Oh, no, no, no, this is I think this is just for the
not it's definitely not lessons. I think that's just some certification thing that you
have to if there's any gronk out there who have their pilot's license. I'd like to know about it. I think, Andy talking about the idea of just being able to flying. Go away. super interesting. It's exciting. Being in Sydney, we have got heaps of guest guests organized. Yeah. So if you if you've just joined us, normally we probably do. Be three guests awake? Yeah. But over the next 10 days, there will be back to back to back guests, which I'm excited to have a lot of conversations with people but also, I think it could, could potentially be training.
Yeah, there's a lot. We've got 10 year Hennessy. Dan Ilitch
who else have you got? We've got Williams Yeah. Yeah. Simon. Hi, Josh. Hi, Josh. Yeah. Who else? Scott Tweedy.
Yeah, we got a bunch happening. So in turn page into a pit? Yeah, it's gonna be a big week and I am fired up.
Anyway, perfect. It's a daily talk show. Feel free to subscribe if you haven't done that already. You can also email us high at the deli talk show.com. And thank you to the overflow hotel who's letting us set up our makeshift studio. Yeah, they've been great for letting us do it. Tomorrow. Richard Wilkins, is on the show live from his bar at his home in Sydney. So stick around for that. Let's say hi guys. Bye.
