It's the daily Talk Show Episode 484. And if you are watching this and you're listening to this, you've made the right decision. If you're wondering why I'm breathing heavily I just did a dab as a way to represent weekend. It's It's Sunday, we're dedicating this to be guys Tesla this episode. I didn't realise
BK we, he used to work across the road. We do a crossover from him because he technically still works there. So so he works on AZ straight, he actually his office is a trying itemise it. It's in one of the old recycled trains which they've put on top. easy's burgers, he's in one of them. It's a it's a good spot. And so, BK has a business around his salary sacrifice and stuff that sort of an environmental spin on the whole thing, trying to do good good for the world. And
Yeah vegan full vegan yeah I think he still is guess well as in like I remember him transitioning to the vague You know, he always here it was a K but it's a my hat's off to like sticking out. During Christmas, he was saying that he was going to turn off the show, giving away a turkey night. Now we gave away a ham ham. And we had to do it. And will we give away hands in the future? Maybe.
Anyway, so there was a bit of a it wasn't a joke at first, but you had told me Yeah, BK has a Tesla or not It's okay. I think I legitimately maybe like was trolling me maybe you mentioned something Oh, no. He got a Tesla given to him. He won one No, no, no for a week was
because I saw her on a test drive Tesla was it was his business called again, is simply green, simply great salary package. So he had, he had a Tesla in his possession for some time. And he was taking photos of it. So I was like,
Tesla. I don't know anyone's got a Tesla. That's cool. Baker's got a Tesla. And so that was the thing that when you talked about BK ever, it's like, I can either get in these Tesla, but I want to own a Tesla still don't haven't been in one. And so I've been in one.
But the funny thing is, we caught up with him once. And I made some reference about the Tesla. And he was like, Guys, I have a Tesla, because he heard us talk about us talking about him having many times and so he was there was a embarrassing moment we had we sort of realised this, but just double down on it. We double down on the whole Tesla thing. It was the jug he might you know, I get it, you do have it. Whatever, where's your Tesla case, but anyway, we we got an Instagram dm from him the other day, just this week, and it's a must be Monday or Tuesday. And it was a photo of a Tesla and the number plate was BK.
He said something like it's finally happened. He's a part of the squeegee kheiron called, yes, SJ. He's an Oj gronk. And so he sends that photo. What did you did you see the photo? 97? Yeah, it's literally like the front of the test or in his number play. And so what did you think when you we got that?
Well, I mean, I saw the number plate and all sold what when I saw his number play, because it was he's, it's Yes, it's personalised hyphen, BK. And so I thought,
he must have found a Tesla that has BK on it. And these mates have sent it to him. But then on Friday, we re grabbed the storey of him, like the Tesla steering wheel. And then it's us on youtube minus gronk. I didn't know. Tesla said,
I want to go into Tesla even more now. And I want to go and BK says, Did we believe him into doing this? If we like, did we say it's like
Like this kid has got a holiday. He's always talking about a holiday house that he has. And then he's just his parents bought one. Is that is that happened? Now? She's analogy is terrible. I mean, we can just use this. This case study of, as we said, had a Tesla and finally got one, neighbour. Oh, it's unbelievable. I think it'd be great to maybe do an episode from his. That would be that'd be good fun.
Episode 500. The the tickets. The tickets have sold out. However,
we are doing an extra Sunday ticket run. So there's a couple of done the classic thing have spoken to large from a 79. Mike, can you fit more seats? And so we're doing it's like 20 more? Yeah, it's happening. And so I guess we need to figure so Second, we know that we said tickets are basically gone on Friday.
They have been gone on Saturday, but we've released them all. Now we need to actually sort out what we're doing for the event. So what have we got dialled in? What have we worked out so far? So I will be attending the doctor as Will you will book you in and you miss an ICF. And we'll give you in and bulk billing clinic, which will be fine. And what we need to do is go and get our referral. And this referral is so that we don't have to pay to them go and get a blood test at a pathologist so we can out of it. Yeah. And so we'll get a blood test. Yeah. And so the GP doesn't actually take it themselves. No, JP, don't take notes. Well, it depends like a gap can take five but they're not going to you need to go to a pathology clinic. They send it off to the lab and stuff. So then we got to go back to the doctor because the to analyse it, well. They'll give us a result results shape. So the issue I can we actually do, like, I know we want to say who's got the most amount of testosterone
How do we feel about having a few other key healthy?
vitamin D? Sure, sure. Sure. I mean, this is your cholesterol. Well, the thing is one of us needs to go to actually start this to see what they'll provide us in the one. So I was definitely I'm happy to go do that. I was on Friday. I was just sussing out I was just calling place around the corner to check it out. It's a place around the fucking call, I think to get our blood test, I don't know, like the place around the corner thing. Like they're gonna play some Richmond building, just go to any of them. They claim were destroyed. I know.
What's your problem? So I just think that potentially, the idea of just going to a medical place and doing it versus, like, we know hapa we know him. I asked him he said the exact thing to do. I've asked him a long time ago, he said, Go to a GP. Tell him that you want to get your testosterone levels tested, but with a bunch of other stuff. And that will do it for you.
I don't know I just thought that maybe there was an opportunity to if there was a podcast listener who has a hookup is a pathologist or a gap or something just so I don't have to go to the fact that I don't go to the doctor for anything where is your Do you know do you have a gap? Or do you just have my I don't my family doctor I he would be like oh my god like
you've changed a lot like you the last time I was there was probably like fucking 13 years I mean, I bumped into the GP local GP who's inspecting my penis that many times as a kid
my face I had my boys did once check him out.
He's these you have to go into surgery. Luckily and twisted bro. So we talked about I mean, Amy criticise the other day about smart and you've gone straight to ball.
sack know the holy with his Dion's certainly Test, test NoSQL
Cool, so then there's a twist. It is the most painful fucking thing. Oh my god, I know a kid who had a suit had to do surgery to get rid of it. But you're gonna stop being a baby. We're going to the GP just quickly getting it on the ball thing. You just made your do it.
So you guys are all going to go together? No, no, no. Okay, I'm just fucking do that no, but my point he's the victorious on an INEJP it's just a referral. May you literally go in and say, I want to get my testosterone tested. Can I have a referral for blood test? He says, she says, direct from we could. Maybe there's something in the Filipino artist thing as well. I mean, you don't want to bog it down.
I mean, you could find out you could find somebody to come and do a diagnosis on the night, which is a bit much. I mean, we're going to release the testosterone thing. And whoever wins gets 10 grand. That's not true. That's and so
Gemma was announcing that now I wanted the kid from
Nathan. Nathan, who announced on the video that we made at the athlete's foot of who has the bigger foot so I thought he could just be our go to guy who announces maybe Gemma announced vitamin D or colour now i think i think Gemma will work out what Queen gronk gym is up to. But I think to start with great so I got a message knife to Let's lock it in. I mean it might even be a trip to shop.
Tell him in person. You really just an ambush and we got a shopper. This is it said the store a backstory is Josh and I had a silly little TIFF about who has a Bigfoot and we were walking past at the athlete's foot. We thought fact how how good of a if we actually got it measured one of those machines. I thought it was going to be old school thing. Turns out says some digital footprint thing and so they give you really accurate and this young
blog he was just Nathan Nathan was KZ
so Nathan was out for turns out we got me cheese. Yeah. And so and so yeah anyway he gave us the announcement of who has the bigger
and so you you won by like a very small number the whole size yeah it's not small numbers small numbers point five or small numbers like were the same but the funny thing is that the size bigger on both one none on both feet and I think anyway
I think actually
so I think we gave it to this specific we kids keep it specific for the reveal. And then we've also got Hayden DM
who's getting a tattoo during the show of the daily talk show and so we need to organise the tattooist Yep, we need to
what else do we need to organise?
A trip crowd, source or
Crowd organised I'm going to set the thing, get a bunch of gronk song to help organise. Yeah, so if you've got any suggestions for the 500
you can let us know at either daily talk show.com do you think that we have a projector on the night where we can play out so I was thinking I did that video video behind well, so I did the EP 400 a highlight video. I feel like I should spend like a day putting together an EP 500 video with all some of the 400 staff and some of the new things we had to bleaching of your hair and what a bunch of other stuff that a lot of requests to get. have that done again.
That's good. I think you should and but what how do we feel about having mechanism to be able to play video clips on a project? I'd love that. I love that. Okay, so I can organise that I think that's something that could be in my responsibilities. PA system
That needs to get done. So this will be up there on will be up there on
stage stage area Yeah, it's a but then yeah we need a better audio pumping out to the crowd so then we'll have how many seats will have like 100 seats all sort of set up and there's some sections in the booth like a booth area yeah I don't know how we're gonna deal yes the booth we actually have to have somebody
organise it like people managing the business. Yeah, so we can't get a few gronk to help out with being ashes so I mean, we've got our go tues which, I mean Bry there I'll go to gronk I haven't asked for it yet. Yeah, I haven't asked me yet. I'm sure they just want to have a lovely night. And well, what can we I mean, should there's one more thing we haven't officially asked but this show is where we officially asked for evil. Our show Baker? I Alex, Alex, what do you want to win AD services as the show bake the cake, we need a cake. We need a five
Hundred cake, whether it's 500 kilos, whether it's 500 grammes, whether it has something,
whether it's got 500 on it, the theme is 500. Obviously, what about it has to be something. It's hundreds and thousands. That's, that's that that doesn't work. And so 97 I'm thinking we bring that home mixer
to the event. Yeah, yeah. No, I think that's a great idea that will get it's going to be problematic. Otherwise, yeah. So I need that many inputs and outputs. So then we have the mixer. I think we can have some microphones think we can have some microphones. It would be good. I think we could speak to road or store DJYDI microphones, like a handheld you get a handheld so we can have that around. Mr. 97. I'd love him in a head headset. The aeroplane headset
he's walking around. doesn't do that. So we'll have to. The thing is,
yeah, find somebody but yeah, so we have a headset and a bum bag
and he walks around
Any hands that said like we get him in the crowd? We got gronk over there. Yeah, can gronk Trevor, he's over there. Can you go given the microphone? And so you just out there was it interesting. It's exciting.
Isn't it sounds like yeah, I'm excited. You've got a few of the coconut crew come in and support. Yeah. Jason Andre coming to that, how do you feel about like, I'm just taking out in the technology. And I could have we could have like, almost. So we could have the headset microphone to get a headphone so you can hear everything that's happening. And I'll get your pack where you can turn the mic off and on. Because you might be wanting to talk to people or things like that, or moments where you don't want to match their Yeah, yeah. And so there'll be moments like so we'll talk to you and then you'll be able to turn on your mic, unmute your mic and be able to talk. Now the trick is going to be you're going to have your mic and there's going to be the wireless mic. You don't need to talk into the wireless mic as well. You give them that mic and I
I can just be talking about into your one. I'll make it I'll add some compression and stuff. So you sound good. Yeah, the concern I have is, you cannot turn the microphone on. If you're too close to the speakers. I'll, we'll if we get any fucking feedback, it just looks bad. It's amateur hour, which is this actually is also with feedback for the show.
squealing sound of speakers is pet peeve. It's, yeah.
Because we're kind of show where it's actually being managed from the people up on stage. In terms of the audience, I think like the whole mix. It's there's gonna be a lot going on. But I think my feeling is we embrace the technology stuff and just check everything at it. Yeah, yeah. Do you do you feel the same way? I mean, money is just a will. So you were saying you were like, man, when we first got there you like. Now you don't want to be worrying about that stuff. You just want to be able to focus on the thing, of actually and I initialise
Yeah, which is my weekend AV guys or something. I actually think that part of the fun is me being able to set up and kitted out the way they set up to that. It's more just while we're on stage, like, what happens if you need it? If it starts squealing its head off, because it's always the case, right? You get Josh everything. Josh Peterman, he's at AMCJ and he's about to do the bloody national anthem, and he says if he checked it yet, and then he goes out and it's fucked. Yeah, it couldn't hit the end. It's like the moment the thing that you needed to do one job one job so that brings up another interesting point. I was thinking I want this to be good. I want this to be fucking amazing. Like actually want this to be amazing. Like this is right. In my sort of wheelhouse in regards to putting on a performance for a bunch of people. I mean, it starts at home. Yeah, your parents have people over for dinner. You say can I put a pair pots and pans show on? Well, it's for me It started like my auntie
used to have a fax machine. And so the fax paper where it was all attached really long, and create an awesome banner. And she had this morning at Maureen's place, she had a, like a rise, like a risen bit type of thing. And what is a quick first day that sorry, that would be the stage and I put the whole thing down. One of the things I was thinking is, I think that maybe at the start, maybe in the middle, or maybe at the end, we have an acoustic performance by someone.
Well, there's a bunch of time before we start live show.
And then this live show starts. So the venue opens. Amy in our system, we open there's a there's a bunch of time. So there is a there is time, you know, it'll be cool. We've got half an hour after and this is the thing you might run over. So maybe beforehand, just like some light music is just like some wine. I'm thinking like
Because one of the criticisms so one of the things when we had released the sounds jacking radio mic in the studio, I know but there were an uncommon I saw that I saw I saw that performance but I spent half an hour trying to get reverb
on in the mixer so that when they did the performance we had reverb couldn't fucking work out how to do it anyway. I'm like, missing it seven was basically a man that was like, it doesn't matter. Just get around with it. Anyway, the guys do one round of performance and then jack says, Hey, man, can we just get a little bit of reverb? I knew I had a meltdown. So the thing is,
I would love to do have some form of performance, where like whatever but between us between now and then where there's reverb, but not only that, I want the option because I know the mixer can fucking do it. Pre Sonus helped me I'm trying to work out how to do it. I want to be able to during the show at any point, turn on some reverb
Which is what is
just Okay. Hello, hello. Hello. Hello. Welcome. Welcome, welcome. Hi. It's for singing. It's not for us. We don't want that shit. But I think that there could be some funny moments where I'm like it's a daily talk show show Jojo. just did it. You just putting your own brand out to me? I think it'd be fun. What do you think? Can you do it on the iPad?
I reckon I reckon on the iPad. I want to hear his rationale for the iPad one. I'm just I'm just thinking through what the interface looks like because you've got this you've got all the levels on the iPad, but I mean, and because we used to work at the mixer. Yeah, definitely. I could control the mixer from the iPad, the idea of having a microphone through the iPad, you
know, the idea of having Yes, there. There is within the precise there's an FX button and that FX button controls all the fighters and you can turn up how much of the specific effect we still rolling by the way because the strangest
Yeah, we can control how much effect we're giving it. And so because I can control the fighter, I can do that. So I'm confident. So I think that that would be fun thing to Yeah. Yeah, I think we could. There's also so we're trying to work out how we do this. I like I think that there is a period of time when we're not actually in the venue. And you and i, you and i, Josh, how do you feel about that? 97 How did you imagine the night like, if you were to paint the picture of the night 630 people arriving? What's their experience? What's the user experience?
Yeah, I mean, I don't know. I don't know how the tickets. I mean, I guess you can get your ticket scanned on the way in type of TEDx talk that we did with it. Simple.
Easy coming. Get your tickets scanned.
We have one us
We can't wait. We need to get your ticket. Yeah. Yeah, yeah. Would you go with that pay to have lanyards? Yeah, Everyone, get a lanyard or just
Here we go cool just like not gronk squad like everyone this is all yeah this is all blue sky thinking just this is a question I want to coach on all of them
it can't it's not got nothing to do with the ticket because this ticket the ticket okay to be back out you put it back on there we get back I shattered on them doesn't really matter.
Anyway so you come in and get your ticket scanned potentially pick up a lanyard
lanyard in your vision or you just threw that in there's going to be guy doesn't like balloons. So what about lanyards? So I'll just lay that out anyway continuing it's a good keepsake for everyone this is good this is good to be applied what do you do with your bags and stuff you want to you want to have a spot so we're not a fucking bag room place now but people are gonna have like you ever been asked Have you ever been out your when people know people are going to be coming from work it says have you ever been every event? What do you do when you go to movies they are cloakroom. There
I don't want to keep my bag with me the whole night. And so he's never been out before to a fucking event. Go to the circus you go to the fucking a nightclub most of them they're not gonna like it maybe we need security no no there's no fucking bag room you bring
checking back so
he brought your gym bag from work your factor people
wine will be walking straight from where his work is you
like what do you guys living in what we'll do you living in terms of like, even if you don't have an area right you just want your sake to put it under Of course. That's the solution. But
there's a show Yeah. So in the in the time to be able to get to the time between checking in Do you just drop your bag off at a site? You hold on? Let's go sit down.
Can we see what happens in events
We feel like
the seats are definitely no allocation its first in best dress and there'll be someone we probably need someone young someone who wanted to probably need someone young up on stage giving some direction Mr. Nice Mr. 97 for
like if we had the microphone
Could you be the guy up on stage saying you know guys I was all concerned about your bags and bring your gym bags and maybe you got stuff like you should go and sit down maybe put it under their seats, aren't they not like why are you doing reserved?
Make sure toilets to that white like this is a great insight. Yeah, what about the
flight attendant know
what could we put it at the head? But what about Tyler's
baby a 3d print my suit now because they be I reckon could we get the gronk squad to decide what Mr. 97 wears on the night.
That's a brilliant idea maybe I love it like I know it's a bit radio but it'd be great to have a wheel that was
one of the options I mean it's
it's a know when Hamish and Andy were in New York jack post was dressed up as a butler so I think we roll out the butler
can't do that. There's what is that one Z's costume shop I mean if there's one guy because it his clothes were actually flying out on Halloween to the states and so maybe you would just bring in a bit of the other Halloween Halloween. Mr. 97 could be a Halloween costume I wonder what what is the idea of him switching costumes so pre show he has a certain costume and then when the shows on he's got a costume. Yeah, but yet we're way hot. So you and I agree that it doesn't necessarily make any sense for us to like we love hanging out and all that sort of thing. But
From a showmanship point of view to bring the fact and boom boom boom, like you had this vision, which sounded like a UFC fight where you want to come out you want a cameras following us tracking as long as we come out like the crowd you're just walking through if you've seen what frequencies now name he just fought over the weekend. Yeah, yeah. What was the song Casey? A guy just fought recently no sorry. Okay so good style bender. He's a guy from Auckland, and from New Zealand, your your native land. Yeah, he's from there and he did the best walk out in Melbourne at the UFC. It was so good. He had a full dance and he came out to pumping music Anyway, it was nothing like that all I just thought was we need to at least have the pre show like Pete you know, Mr. Nice Evan out there, telling people what's happening some vibe happening, some music happening, and then we come out and go up and size and do the show.
We have guests I just think you don't you don't do well with the greetings.
I'm trying to like how do I look out for my bro? And it's let's not empty your tank with a few handshakes and kiss well what
is your emotional tank? Is it what is that if I wear a T shirt that said hugs only
Brandi yeah maybe hugs only or maybe we just made it clear Hey at the end you can come and like we can all get the hang and chat not only give Josh gronk score grading is out
every determine that before now things are pretty. I like the Josh
like yeah, no
I haven't been good. I like that. Bring more of that. See the confidence like he said that like it was a think well I remember there's I've heard guests before saying like I sort of walking to the desk as they greetings nice. Like oh, I get a hug from everyone. Oh my god. What is it 97
My wife shook ash Williams hand
and I went to
enjoy a good handshake of ash. No, no, but I was looking at ash as just he's definitely a smoker. But he's definitely a going in for kids but he's us. I can tell you were eyeballing
AI So I love that. I love Queen, Queen gronk she's like, she's the best MC Yeah, so she's the best MC Could it be a July?
I mean, I'm happy for Gemma to know. You would have to lead but I mean, yeah. But this is the first ever time of emceed anything actually pub probably the first time like publicly do i mean Jim is expensive. This is the problem. So if we, if Jim will do us a freebie be kit but the thing is because this is the other thing. We're going to have all of these VIP gronk
We want to bring them into the show in some way. So it's like you have been
screwed to Derek you have told gronk like, how we bought into it. Yeah, yeah. All the names. How do we actually how do we get everyone involved? Or Or am I doing the wrong approach? Where it's like I'm being the mom, that's like, everyone, everyone gets the same thing. No, I think I think if I was going to any live event, I would expect some entertainment and to sit there and it's like anything. You go to the circus you don't want to be picked as people actually like enjoying watching something have players and to hang on quickly. There is booths at the back. Which one will have a camera obviously, in the booth, but these it's almost nightclub esque. I think unless there's some there is some reserved seating and it's if you have a squeegee keyring there is something it's like a nightclub like you get
Mo XSVK I know he's coming. There's some Primo shit happening just use your barcode on your lanyard and that will get you Nana squeegee.
Bring the squeegee but then
what say if you've got a hat What? Or if you've got if you've got a hoodie to like this. There's a there's a hoodie t there's a squeegee kheiron cult here which these went out. I mean there's people in America that have these two people in America have squeegee I think the big thing is going to work out how we can integrate people in a fun way I think we can do we can play games and stuff like that and really fucking like, let's make it happens with that is structure and it's not your best suit. Now I think structure could work. Does That's what I'm saying. It has to follow through with structure. And one of our our greatest gifts is not to be able to stick to a strap. It's a good thing that we have two mics. We need someone to run this. It's like a good producer who's been throwing up his hands. How many seconds have we got left to talk? He's we're done. We're Yeah, literally one minute
But before we finish Yeah, we're travelling whole thing where it's like he didn't say your time is done now he did one minute. Literally did the five in the one. Yep. initiative to say, you guys you need to stop it also that Your time's up you as a just some feedback
when he did the one finger sorry You don't need to lose your mind. So you know
the the listeners the viewers that don't know he's done that and so that's a good guide for us just to be like our year Baba.
Like you don't need to this isn't a fucking project that's going into some CGI into another show. This is going to the show of life and as soon as he stops, yeah, you can have you Sunday night anyway. It's a talk show. Hi, the daily talk show.com is the email address if you've got any ideas around this and I guess I think this is the contentious issue around the live event is
Having worked in live events now within this sense of the Nando's thing,
you get very mic heavy, you love to get on the mic, you love talking. And so we need to come across with some potential safe words. So if I feel that you're talking too much, or if you feel that I'm talking too much, we can say steak. Yeah.
The thing is, we're doing a show, that's why it's not going to be the furthest thing from what we do. But it'd be good to just sort of one minute thing and you sort of brought that energy. We don't want that on the night is a few things that are going to be different. And so we don't want to change too much and that's why I'm saying I don't want to layer it too much for you. And for myself, Well the thing is 1400 farmers in South Africa that's the Nando's that's that's what the dollies Yeah, the bird's eye African African bird's eye chiles have I make the Perry Perry sauce good. Anyway, Li
Fact la fact of the day the LA Department of Water and Power spent $34 million on 96 million black balls that they put into the water reservoir to stop it from evaporating saying the video is crazy I don't know if it was the LA one but I saw those all the black balls rushing down what's your magic just like stops all the like the hate being able to order the whole thing yet science All right. Today talk show will say on Monday guys Hey guys.
