It's the daily Talk Show Episode 500 and he happy fat fried ice Can I
was currently got Coca Cola This is coconut sugar. I had a coffee this morning with a friend I haven't seen in a long time and I had a moment where I wanted to choose my coffee. I was like that could be a things it's been a while now I don't even the wild thing is maybe just off the back of last night having a few beers and there was a few cheese going on and we did do that. How many beers did you have? Two and a quarter because I started drinking the third and my wife said absolutely not. I'm you're driving home
I just left it to go away dollars. I didn't pay for it. You know my dad didn't show him like it's a great move to just get a be a board and let it go call let it go walk I want Yeah. But anyway, it's FET Fridays today and we're doing a McDonald's when I was in a meeting just before with the
tainment PGA friend of mine told him Fridays, I said what he has in the Gulf. Now I saw PGA property guard Australia, I think is what a shortfall.
They said, What are you having? And I said, the veggie burger from McDonald's also known as the McMahon, Nick vege. And they said to other people are making good things about that grind.
You know, when I only realised that MCAS didn't do a vegetarian option when you became vegetto for a month, and I looked into it now, like, what am I gonna eat? I actually have nothing there. You could, you'd end up just eating a piece of bread. And we also have our moderator George George, how are you? Hello. Hello, good. You're just sitting on the couch. Is it a machine Andy perfect holiday jump up? It is. It looks great. It is great. I wore it last night to try to impress Ryan but then I took it off a chicken
Can I just say make a veggie Smith
was like a Big Mac. Yeah. It smells great. But George is a great editor. And he
is well, mainly editor.
Personality TBC. But
yeah, and so George's walking out of the office today and we appreciate him being and yeah, he was at our episode that we did last night for the fire relief at the SP what an effort the lady Brian's gals put in to put that together now when you say gals Why not? I guess you can. Okay. Coca Cola have it. The gal Yeah. So if Coca Cola concisely I think it's Are you saying
the girls automatic sign? No, I think I I'm I'm better suited. But do you think I get more of a laugh out of the gal? Yeah, cuz it doesn't fit you
because it's it seems dumb coming from
Why is that though? Why? I don't know. Now that you just have masculine qualities. So when you say things like you, Nicole, I'm glad because I am a bloke Yeah, but when you sit when you say certain things they trigger moments like when you You said something about an errand Caitlin doing a great job. But the way you said it, it almost sounded like you're the groom at a wedding and you signed today. Doesn't the bride look beautiful?
But what did what did you What did he say? Did you hear that? It was near the end. It was I said, What a great job the lady Brian. Did you read George? Did you hear that or not? It was just mad.
I was like, Yeah, I sort of said, Caitlyn? No, because I said enter in Kate. And then you jumped the guideline. And so I said, Yeah, I didn't think it was was that in the episode that was in the episode, or was it? No, it was just at the end. Anyway, I was doing some thank thank you. Put it put it on. And I mean, we were just the last to speak which was lovely and
Right, we had Ryan Shelton that was one of my favourite episodes. I like the vibes good. I always like to get the win when I get in the car with me after we've done something live the temperature in the room of the car. I'm sure she's like, what do you want from me? Because I kept on saying what Tell me about it. I was I wasn't. I was on stage. I wasn't there. I was. So I didn't have perspective of what it was like. So George, full review next five minutes start talking. Now Jackie, now you did you enjoy the night? Yeah, I loved it was awesome.
The girls are great. You guys were funny gals.
And I was surprised that most of the conversation was going to be about Ryan's last podcast episode on the imperfect. But you listened to the Imperfect Podcast twice and you loved it. It was a great one. But yeah, but I think it's important that you guys did that. Because I think I'm sure a lot of people in the audience would have got a lot out of it. Yeah. And it was also funny and yeah, it's good. If you have no idea, listen to our episode.
From yesterday, and then go back and listen to being perfect and perfect. And we try this burger. Yeah, let's try. Alright guys simultaneous bias between the four of us in the room as we do. I'd like to also thank Ventra IP.

Wow. Can we just appreciate you man Maya my
associate really good. Mm hmm. I was telling George before I haven't eaten beef from backers in over a year now. Really proud of that. That would have
been for you said.
Listen. 24 hours. The dude gets fussy about so much stuff like when
you load off your was a lot of push
by. Yeah, it was leaning him. Was he? Now I appreciate that he linting last Friday night when we went to drinks and he was out with my mom. Yes. Do you have a serviette?
You can fix your face. Now I want you.
I want you to fix it. Absolutely not. Sorry.
Caitlin who listens to the show she she
gets funny about hearing the sound of food being Ah, sorry. I'm George before you say that. But what do you think of the burger? It's actually delicious. Yes, yes. Yeah. I would have thought I was just to make chicken or something if I didn't know. It's not. That's not to make veggie saves. What's your opinion?
Yes, pretty good. I like I like the flavour on it. Yeah, I do. I do just want to say though, it's not strictly vegetarian, what due to its cooking procedures.
The way that they cook it so it sounds like they using the same hoplite as the mate
That's right. Surely
there's a lot of bedros that went to there that wouldn't bet you are also okay with that. Yeah. Like maybe you go to a barbecue. We can't be that fancy. Yeah.
Just checking in with somebody same is like it's not like you. It's not going to cross contaminated like it. But he sent me slating like when you saying that? Well, I mean, the chief marketing officer came out and said it from actors. So that really lead with it. They lead with it.
What's the name of the chief chief marketing officer? His name's Mitch. Mitch something Jenny, Jenny.
Jenny deal, Jenny deal. Okay. And so Jenny, what's what did she actually say? Due to its cooking procedure. It's not strictly vegetarian. I that's not them.
Actively coming out. That's a report letter reporter asking for a quote, isn't it?
I mean, seven, it's all over seven news.
Yeah, I mean, yeah.
Is it is it a big deal? Like have they made a big deal about it? Well, Mac is all the news about Hungary and what about Hungry Hungry Jacks does the same thing that got the rebel wapa which is Yeah, they cook the same patties on the same flight.
Okay, well, I guess if you're at if that's where you're going for your food as a vegetarian, they meet predominantly meat places so go elsewhere. But it takes good or dummies fast you have it if you need it.
I get it. Last night chips.
Well, they don't get cooked in there. You think they deep fry nuggets? Like actually I worked at macros did they did I
think so. It pretty like they're pretty dry consider like they were really enjoying going to the the heat thing. Like the
Yeah. which drives me a little bit. Yeah. On the whole day.
vegetarian thing. That's obviously very hot right now. Yeah. Which makes sense. We need to be eating, reducing our meat consumption. Well, I think it's hot right now, based on climate change is one of one of the real hate. You know, one of the real reasons game changes as well, you gotta say, that was a big part, you know, I think, Well, I think yeah, it's got because it goes through health implications of made. But then if you just say,
then the other bit is, beyond the criticism is cruelty. There's health implications for the individual consumer, and then there's the climate impact. And so that's where it's like, I think the three things go off health, you're going to die of cancer if you eat made, but then climate changes, you know, the shit happening, it's like, then we're hard on that. So these things always just peak. Yeah. And so what's peaking right now is climate change. The other thing that's been peaking for a while. Byron Bay?
I'm in George's in Byron Bay, local. Yeah, that's why I bring it up. Is it true
Mine's a bookstore in Byron Bay. Yeah. Is it is it like in the main boardroom the book room is one environments running Linux. Linux Is it her franchise or she ends but yeah my man john my step that sick
because I tried to sell I bought a bunch of books though. Yeah,
many copies of this I was trying to start my own sort of small micro bookshop that never ended up happening until I actually tried to sell you the stocks right.
Did you ever show your mom the stock I don't know if I ever pass on the message. Or if it because they still still got
the opportunity? What if we go take them up to your mom's bookstore? She'll love it. Yeah, but what's it a shy but yeah, what sort of price point
geez cost price. three bucks a book. How many books is it now? Take a hit on it just on the cost price. You have to go on your cost price sociate yet
I think how many books do we think we've got left? I've got about maybe 50? Yeah, reckon you've taken George box. So you grew up in Byron, no. Grew up in Canberra. And that's right. I moved to buy an after school. So like, literally the day after I finished school, as a team with mom, and I was up there for like five years before coming here. Okay, and what year was that? So having the end of 2011 so it was it was, I mean, it's super trendy in 2020. Yes, I can change a lot actually. Even since I was there. Like, yeah, so did you come into the call myself like a local but did you go into the time where it was? It was like, more Zba it was more hippie. It wasn't as crazy on the summer period.
A little bit. It's not really like full on hippies, like back in the 60s or whatever. Yeah, there's still a few out there living in the hills and stuff but bar in town. Now as Yes. There's a lot of
Mainstream sort of people mainstream.
Arrive without you they when you were there. Yeah, yeah, that coming to the show actually quite a lot
like $1,000 with the books for Christmas. Really? Oh,
yeah, like couple of weeks ago I just walked in Imagine if they had all of them and said, wow, you know what he's done is gone fact. I've just been in Hollywood for the last whatever. 10 months have lost some brain cell. No, no, I haven't got presents for people. I need some quick presents for Christmas. And so she's gone down the book run. Yeah, good presence. What about Thor? Is he?
Yeah, he's got his big mansion there. Have you met Thor? No, not I think I've seen him in the shop before but I didn't say what do you do when you go to the shop? Just walk around like a customer like you you know have like a seat that you sit behind the net. But when I got there to visit Yeah, not just Well, I used to work in the coffee shop which was like part of
The bookshop and that's the front of the cafe at front of the bookshop. There's a coffee machine. Did you run that?
Was that Does your mom run that? same same company? Really just diverse, diverse? She She hires the barista. Yes. Yep. Okay. Yep. So I guess you did good baristas in Bayern. Yeah. How's the best? Yeah, it was you were actually a barista there.
Yeah. So would you as a standard make a strong two shot coffee or was that extra? This is change now like since being in Melbourne. I've realised that because I actually just do a single shot for someone ordered a lot I just do single shot. And then can you just confirm is that a button that you're pressing? That is single shot or is it Yeah, it's a it's a button but it's also the you know, the group head thing is already got one spot right on two spots. Yes, ma'am. And so now the standard which is what he's pointing at, in Melbourne, and most people
is now a coffee you get is two shots. But then that begs the question is is that the new one shot so when you ask for rather than saying awake or do you want a latte you get it running two shots so they've redefined the one shot yeah to be the have always been that she can't
actually have coffee flavour yeah so so would you be able to do you have to completely retrain if you want to do it again or do you think
when I first came to Melbourne I was like just get a cafe job and
and I did a trial in somewhere and northcutt my was it was a place called I can't remember what time I was cold and I was like this isn't for me. So you a mild may
just when you arrived there is George your Mason. Yeah, yeah. When they've all got one
but Georgia little bastard wasn't offering free work. It was not
needs to survive. And so, you were you arrived in Melbourne?
Who did you have with you in Melbourne? Regina, my sister was here. And me and my girlfriend came down together. Yeah.
And I recognise a male ga like
probably six months after as you waited six months I waited. What were you doing for six months following? trying to work out how to fucking make a coffee in Melbourne.
Remember the name of the northcutt place that you've worked at? Yeah. And so you really took it didn't either.
It's not funny when you submit when you don't push back I just say name
that I was hot now I'm not me. Oh geez. That's his humour by making you out like a main.
Your main man if we were to, if you started working out of the office more if we were
At some point to get like a full barista, yeah. Set up plumb the coffee in would you because Eddie McGuire, who I've got a lot of love. Yes I on the show.
The he has a barista that sits or stands in he's shooting out and makes coffees for them throughout the show.
How do you feel about being a barista?
In what show? Does he do this in his radio show? Yeah, he's right here in the studio in the studio in the studio. Drinking someone.
coffees, you can look this up because Tommy is just at rod said on the line and said it's not in studio studios. I'd be I've seen it. So you're going based on I don't think it would be and I'm saying but I've watched a bunch of videos.
Yeah, he's in the game. Definitely. It's an integration of the course it's a gimmick. Is he actually
Yeah, I'm guessing I do it during the songs. What the? That's so indulgent. So that the reason I push back is like, it's an airlock studio that's smaller than this, like half
a million dollars trying to get as little sound as possible and then they've put some plugs. What's that sound? That's the water. Can we turn that off now? That's the state. Yeah, you okay? No indigestion. So can you find yourselves?
I don't want to bully everyone today. But What's taking you so far?
Guys don't want to sleep at 130 Yeah, so you're delirious.
Actually can't find it. It's called an in house barista, potentially. Wherever you found that information on triple m social media page. And so if you haven't mentioned it to me always, that's right. It's got a young so if you go into YouTube nice and just type in
hot breakfast triple m hot breakfast.
You find it but
So yeah, I went to bed at 130
after the live shows, I'm wired. I couldn't get off night shift off my phone because I was trying to look at
when I saw the photo that that you took, it was all blown. He's like, I must be the night shift. That's fucking with it. Did you appreciate my pan? Yes, good luck didn't blow it out. Well, that was blue lights from the stage and it took a selfie. It was all blue. And so I thought the photo blew out. And so you know, I was wired to that the, across the road from our house is a retail shop. And when we were on the fifth level in our apartment block, but there had been some, you know, like security, retail security like they've got like the ppppp like the if security like if you're taking something out of the story tags, yeah, and clothing and Yeah, that one of those was going off all night.
And we could hear it. That's so annoying.
I had to I played music the whole night. Really embed to be able to like sleep substitutes a sound with another soul. Yeah, the quality is I tried to listen to an audio book, but the beeping Yeah, you have to have it so loud to sort of hurt your ears. So I had to play music anyway. What music
I actually used Google Home because it was like a light. I was like, ah, wonder what time it is in New York City. And so I streams in New York radio.
And which is fun, because they then might do the the traffic so it's giving you the New York traffic. So did you have any sleep last night dude? Yeah, from like, 130. I went to sleep and then woke up like so delirious at like, seven or 730. Yeah.
But now it's great. If it was, I appreciate it. Pete Shepherd told gronk.
What I like is we're at the point with the relationship where he doesn't have to pretend that he's happy about something
Woody May, which is when he's here. Like when he's at the event. Yeah. It's just like, you know that he wants to go. Ah, he's not just pulling. He's not like he's not smiling. I'm just like, are you ready to go? Yeah, I've gotta go. Okay, well, thanks for coming. As I say, thanks for coming and go look over it. He's gone. Yes. I put in a good effort, though. So many shows, and we just appreciate his custom tailored shirt is great. Was it? I didn't take note of it. What was it? Campbell took a few photos of paint last night. Actually. ramble. ramble. Thanks for coming. So lots of great heads there. So there's, we sort of thought that what could we bring to the event? We thought, well, 97 can film every everyone? Yes.
And ramble came which was great.
Turns out though, that as 97 was filming Rambo was hanging with him a little bit. And just when was it was that I was checking the audio and it was just
Before Gemma's panel, what was the banter like with the audio people by the way? Yeah, lovely.
What are you just talking about? Just like
not not really not really knowing how to like shut up like limited and all that. I was just like asking my bed and
they clearly didn't do a limiter at the start. Feel one it was a bit distorted yeah. Oh, yeah. But yeah, I mean, he blew that out. What that was my fault. I was not Yeah. That's the point of a limiter. Yeah, yeah. It was anyway, not just audio banter. So so you sure yeah, like lining were like, oh, XLR lining. Yeah. I don't know what I'm talking about. So did you think that they knew that? Maybe? I said, I sort of like
Yeah, I just looked into it. I feel like it up anyway. Well, you're going somewhere with this. And then we still are this is the show. Welcome. Yeah. But we'll go to any audio.
Yeah, sure. No, anyway, yeah. So no. So while while I was over the audio thing, just checking levels
Making sure is recording and Oh, okay.
I gems things started and then I got back to the camera and realised that it was pointed slightly in the wrong direction slightly in the wrong so so I can tell you where I come in in this story My eyes were looking at saves when he jazz this camera
like, like fucking jabs the camera just moves so fast just live in like you didn't even unlock the bit.
I thought that's unusable. Like if you want a locked off shot you're going to pan at least just give it a little bit of a pants out. It's like usable. But it makes sense now that the shot was wasn't usable and he was punching it in. Anyway, I'm just like, Oh, this is weird. Someone's knocked the camera. It was just I just mentioned it to pay down. It's like all the cameras been knocked up. They didn't really bring it up. And so ramble came over. I was like Oh, that is so annoying. Someone went and knocked the camera. It's all
You came over us like Oh, yes, I'm just like I was telling y'all what a decay visit us saying.
I don't think rebel was Yeah, yeah. And then and then ramble came up and I was like oh yeah the cameras been locked in it's like ah that was made fat and then ramble hate was there just like piece of himself in the corner.
You know, he didn't rat until after Yeah, I mean not writing but yeah he really jumped on board when ramble came out and said that you know the camera. I mean he said what's the learning? I mean he bought a ticket to you supporting you can't get up but you took photos. He did take photo he said he did beautiful. I don't really care. give a fuck if he was like he was a child.
I dig deep well, we wouldn't have had 97
that's what George funny.
Being on the camera on a paid gig.
So he's Jim his foot is usable at all Yeah, yeah. Cuz I can get to the moment where you jot it. So there's like the first three minutes. Yeah, couple minutes. Yeah. Yeah. Well, you know, it's not the, the green room was nice.
The crowd was lovely. And so we got lovely x. I mean, it's so funny when you're doing an event that's for charity, but then you're getting access to all the good stuff like a green room with a fridge full of beer and yeah, and then food.
You paid for the food that you the pizzas. So I
listen, you kidding me? Listen, I went down. We need to call them and pay. Listen to my story. I went down to get us pizzas, a pizza and some chips for the green room. And I spoke to the woman said, Hey, this is what I wanted to order some food just for up there. was like, No, I can't do that. Can't do that. Like it's because there's the thing about the SP venue is this. I said to this person.
venue. I said, Do you know where the green room is? But I can't just upstairs go through that. I woke up. My this isn't the green room. Turns out there's a bar called the green room. It's green. Oh, that's great.
SCI they had the studio,
which was a was a, which was a space but not a studio. It was called the studios called the studio. But that's where you'd have meetings because they also have
video. Yeah, yeah, they started that. And so I was in the green room. That wasn't the green room that I was wanting. But I found the green room where you guys were. And so I said to this woman, we're up in the green room. She's like, Look, I'm gonna have to check if we can even do this.
Went off away the stairs, but I waited for five minutes. I don't know. It's just different areas here spoke to some manager and the manager came out was like, Yeah, dude. All good. What are you after? I was like, oh,
pizza chips. Yeah, no problem. I yeah, but I want to pay. No, no, I want to pay. Like I said, we're doing this charity.
I don't want to pay and he's like not all good all good Don't worry about it. I'm sorry I meant to Peter's
not but I was I
it was love I thought that we may have missed so that when I told my story first person had peppered here, like I made short, massive gronk move doing a charity event where you're not willing to get your card out. It's definitely a there's definitely a Okay, there's a heightened tension around that right. Well, you don't want to be cold. Well, yeah, but you know to be cancelled. Yeah, that'd be so annoying. Had to migrate. It got cancelled. I haven't migrated to the chips. We got cold out for you know, we get this beautiful green room entering Caitlin have done a fantastic job. They show it to us. They like this is your green room. And that was it and they went in there.
And we're hanging in the green room. They've got the green room. Yeah, they've got there's Ryan Shelton. came into our green room and we were
having a beer and
As you doing just having some nice chats. And I sort of said, like, I guess like, Bray was texting me saying, Are you dad's here? Yeah, to come down and say hello. So we're away from the action. There's a bit of action happening. Yeah. And I just thought I look, think there's something about like the separate like, just the energy of just arriving and being there rather than sort of the floating around. I just remember school production days you didn't want people to see you and maker.
And so we were staying and that was fine. And then Ryan said are Should we? We probably should go. Do you think we should go down and watch everyone else? Yeah, I was I yeah. Yeah. So I was thinking too. And, and so we sort of casually walked down. And then as we casually walked down, and Caitlin was on the microphone, saying, oh, now we're just waiting for the daily talk shows boys before you can get started. And then now like, I just gotta come down and sit down. And you know, in that moment, when they said Come and sit down, there was some chairs on
Stage. I was about this close from sitting on the stage. And what that was saying was getting the front to be cool. Yeah. Yeah, very funny. So but it was it was good so that we were called out and there was a little bit of embarrassed because it was very much about like, hope you're enjoying the green room I wanted like, this defensiveness in you. It's like, I didn't want the girl I didn't ask for the green room. Like I was being polite having the green room. We wanted to pay for the pizza. But imagine if we had come down when we were just meant to go on stage. Oh, no, it wouldn't have been able to happen. There would have been a because I think even 97 said, How did you just have to slap smash the pizza just have to just quickly. Now we're taking our time we didn't know that. Like, I understand like, definitely we wanted to say everyone. Yeah, it's important to support and all that sort of thing.
Yeah, it is. How much of it is your anxiety around going down? Because I went in sort of quickly between getting that pizza and then coming back up. Yes. I went in and snuck a few hors d'oeuvres. A few little
Kind of pays, and said hi to a few people. And everyone was like, Where's Josh? even break? Where's Josh? Well, so yeah, and so you throw me under the bus by doing that I'd prefer if you stay. But I, I just wanted to go and say, I think I'm cool with that. Yeah, I think 97 is good at mingling because then they can say Where is Tommy and Josh? It then so you say I need a? Because I want to be there. Yeah. Well, I guess I didn't get amongst it. But I think there's probably maybe we need to define show roles where it's like, you're the
you're the warmup guy for me. Sort of warming up your mouth. Even your dad was like, Where's Josh? Of course he was.
He had to cut him off because he said, you know, while climate change, I was like, Dad,
what are you doing? You've had
where to where to find relief.
fund raising money here, can you now he's like now don't get me up on stage.
Rest assured we are not getting you on stage.
If anything, you're you're half a beer wife and getting kicked out.
But I really enjoyed this today. I can't my brother Jake was there. There was a good
a good crew. It was great. I got to do
my bit. Yeah, he definitely got the Nando's bit which is the thing you do it every live show. How'd you feel about it? Because if watch yesterday's video you saying I was taken aback when you stood up? Firstly, I'm thinking Mason's Photoshop
to change photos. I think it worked, but it was wide enough. Yeah. But I was worried. I was worried. I was like, he's really going hard on this. How'd you feel about it? I feel great. So I think you're right there with the ice. You've got none left.
I felt really good. I think that probably what I was hoping for. So I did my beach and so was an in joke.
What you could have maybe done is said, that joke was because we emceed a Nando's thing and this this this and then
he didn't. It's funny.
I didn't I wasn't gonna say the other reason I did this bit was because of this. And so you just let it hang there. Yeah. And so then, I mean, George, did you get it? Yeah, I loved it
was coming. Oh, I did did Ryan. My
reaction was so good is that Wow.
So that's that's the steel because the thing is when we're in the green room I said, Now Ryan, I do this thing before and Tommy's like, no, don't tell me I
don't know. You need to not know because everyone who loves our show and is there to support us gets it. And the people other people are just left confused but they just and they are all participating putting their hands
Ward was saying that he he said he had to explain to two people next to him was happening. Yeah, I think
something that connects to the fact that people have to say don't do in jokes like now, but if you get people in on it, it's big but you didn't. I had to explain to my girlfriend was pretty hard to whisper in her ear Like what?
How do you if you were to whisper do what would you say? Because they they emceed it geek Fernandez and then
that's how we would have done it. To be honest.
I think it's funny because then they just left a bit confused. And then we did some fun stuff he just takes away is because I guess brain, railways, she she says things without saying them. She's like, Oh my god, how did you think he goes, I go, you mentioned Nando
A few times.
Like that's the feedback I might so is that, is that good or bad? I think just some people confused. I was like we used confused,
just like on like, Yeah, I was like, dude, like, Will people wait? Because it's hard to say what people are reacting. But my thought behind it is it's the psychology of public speaking, right? So you need to engage quickly. You need to get people interacting. And what I did was I wanted to create high status for us. And so what I did is I stood up. And so I made myself be here on stage.
Thinking, are you just literally inspired by I read, I read it, I think is in in impro. The book. Yeah. And so by moving and also, I think Michael bungay stanier talks about it too, about standing and sitting in the power of that. And so, by us starting sitting and saying
Georgia and then all of a sudden standing
the crowds like what's going on here. But then the bit that I haven't dialled in is if I think I need a better bit when I stand up
the Nando's biddies where one got lost if I'd done something where it's like, ah,
I don't know, maybe we could have done a live auction, rather than the silent auction, maybe like because then I'm standing I'm pointing now we don't need you to fill time with the auction. Well, Bray said that one of her favourite bits of it 500 was the raffle. Yeah, that was that was a fun thing that we did at the end of the show wasn't leading into a 20 minute episode. We could have done a raffle. 20 minutes. We could easily fill a segment with a raffle for 20 minutes. But I think the the fact that people are confused, I think it adds to it. People are trying the thinking you're forcing someone to start thinking about what is he talking about? Why is he's talking about Nanos, I like Nando's, but what is it? Oh, yeah, I'm a mild guy.
have this weird thing where you just forced dissipate. Join into your girlfriend put up her hand. Yeah, she was hot. Yeah, it still is.
Yeah, modern wild has become wild George.
We just call it mild.
Mild is the name as the nickname it's not.
Have you had any nicknames in your life? Just like geo g curious Georgie curious who said curious me. Yeah, that's good. George.
Off watch. Let's do something right. It's TV it's like an animation thing. Yeah like a children's show. Yeah, you still watch you know we could go do you think you're quite Curious George?
for probably no more than any wise guy he doesn't hold as equality for himself now. So you
not curious what is if you were to have a nickname like something you're in the editing stuff your skill set, bookshop, George
Yeah, like anybody else's but bookshop, George You don't even know. Yeah, and I don't really read books either.
It's funny. Yeah. bookworm that's good. bookworm
Eliza has a favourite except for the barista that if we were able to get coffee with a coffee machine it could just start with the mokka master just remind my parents have a coffee machine that's not plugged into the wall then you still need to do the tank top just have a tank. Yeah, there's a silver one like a like a stainless steel looking one river quiet. No, it's like a
style. You've got one yeah, cuz my uncle's got one. I thought I'm asking you that right. And then you've got the same one. Yeah, that's a legit machine. Yeah, it's pretty. Pretty fun. Yeah. And so if we got George on that, then we start charging guests for the coffee's
gold coin donation and we put the money somewhere Caitlin says here adventure IPA we have a barista who brings us coffee and we order I just had one brought to me Not gonna lie oh this is that righteous sharp brought to you by Ventura What does it take what does it take for us to get one brought to
maybe we could maybe the Tesla Tesla yeah we don't have that pool yet but we could definitely if we do a shark from there so I you were talking to Caitlin from venture IP What are you looking at him? No sorry scooted Derek Maybe Mr. 97 could confiscate the cup from the table. What cup? This cup? Those two cups is that we're talking about screen?
What's his problem? Tonight? Also, Bianca says I feel like that'd be great alignment finance Fernando sponsorship on this show are definitely after that performance. yanker Thanks. Absolutely. I think you go up a sponsorship dokkan Yes.
Be able to do that. Or would you just chunk was that the top
you know, so I think that we could definitely do it, you know, so we have venture IP. The other day we mentioned
I wanted to do one from their server room. What's that called? The Data Centre. server room is a server I can see rows and rows and yeah, it's not quite a server room. Yeah, it's cold a What did you say was what do we call it data data centre? And so I said it'd be great to do a show from the data centre. Right? sivs scooty it means hot it from Nando's. Okay, yeah, show Derek's the game at the Brian. Mac isn't in competition with
different kettle of fish. Okay. What do you think about that?
Yeah. Nuyorican different, different Nanda Nando's and Prem more. Jack's yeah porthos if anything I trying to go against their standards. Yeah, it's not it's not the same. what's the what's the one that margin what we could do now
bandos the char grilled Charlie different kettle of fish. One's a small business have two restaurants, the others a juggernaut franchise
chacko Charlie's is like going to a local establishment. business models are talking more just the quality of the food completely different. What about grill I've spent I went to choco trolleys about when I lived in Sydney great establishment, but nothing like I've never been there's nothing I could Nando's. What that is, well it's Nando's is closer to being one of the not fast food but it's a chain of restaurants that has a specific style and consistency across the board. Which you go to one of the childhood challenges. I think there's only only two there's one I think it's two one in Sydney, one in Melbourne, but then it's like a it's like a choco chicken
topping choco chicken, so it's like a foxes den. Exactly. Exactly.
But the scale is huge. It's like Oprah has been there. Which one chakra Chocobo finally got to Yeah, but deal with this thing. Okay, so they're like a Messina. No because Messina is got shitloads of them. It's an old ma Messina is out there. There's
Melvin is about there's a few in Melbourne is true in Melbourne, there's a bunch in Sydney. So it's a different business today. I feel like Byron Bay has a trampoline ice cream places that try the choco Charlie's they've got heaps in Sydney how many 246-810-1211 13 living
where it's in Sydney sorry hills is that one I'm just trying to make sure it's the same yeah yeah, yes sorry hills lifestyle since I live there middle Cove Lane Cove. I still don't put them on the they're not Nando's. They're not there. They're the superior chacal chicken if you wanted to get to what about you, Sam? I want that patriot one. I want that. What is Nando similar Oh,
Why playing this game but I'm enjoying it. Yeah. It is Nando's like a schnitz better.
But similar, similar yet same playing field or just because they're
out there with the Guzman and Gomez. Like that's the this that's the player there really? because money is higher than normal. I'm talking for Mexican. Like if you goes money seeking I think and so what I'm saying is Yeah, they are up there. And so chicken, Nando's are up here. Yeah, sure they're the ruin so I think she needs and a port our neck and neck.
Yeah, I mean, I'm judging you for you and a porter.
I don't know many people that rock reporter other than through a service station. driving down the hill. I thought the reporter was sort of my experience was that where the fancy KFC
it's expensive though. What is a porter? I mean,
For what it should be, it's like yeah, yes. Oh me vegan burger From where? I don't give him that. Thank you for that anyway, so we're talking about doing it from the data centre. And so here
Yeah, Data Centre. That'd be great. All these racks, server racks that look, you were saying Caitlyn has said absolutely not. No. So she said, the problem is the security is too tight on the data centres so that they won't let people into them. So it should be right like that. It's like, yeah, and so they're not going to let a couple girls come in and record. What if we didn't bring USB sticks.
Downloading any data? Can we just use a green screen with some server racks behind?
Yeah, well, no. So I think I think venture IP
I'm sure they'll have a couple of server things at the HQ can find some better looking stuff than a few server is running their internal comms.
system. I'm just making shit up. I have no idea what Raven does, and so that they don't want so you can have a plush. What was the plush tar so Caitlin tried to bring in one of the plush toys and they they were just a dinosaur. Yeah, yeah, they're venture sources. I think they call them but you're a full brand evangelist.
So you'll be wearing what type? You know they have no you should see their massive one that they have at their door. It's huge. It'd be cool. Like my dad anyway, so it's like a plush toy but messy. Okay, absolutely not. We're doing a show from the plush toy. What happened with the plush toy? Well, associates she tried to get it in but they weren't super keen on letting security wouldn't let a plush toy into the I think she got him without a Santa. He did just real weird. Looks like I'm not sure be us been. It's been hot. I will Yeah, that would be get that from Alice. Did you see the Edward Snowden movie he was like a Rubik's Cube or whatever. And he like threw it to the bloke as he went through the sand. He had the little micro
SD card under the one of the labels on the Rubik's Cube. I mean, guys, websites public anyway, downloaded. I was in an Uber once it's speaking to a guy who worked in cyber security for the big bank, and he was telling me about this server location. It's adding none of warning or some way down there. And I was saying, was there a moment Wait, like, what, because I've had a few of those. You have an Uber driver that has crazy amounts of Intel? Is there a little bit of you judging me and like mine? And like, you know, he'd spent like, he doesn't work. But it's more the fact that like, I'm going to, like, you are giving out crazy amounts of information with a lot of authority. Yeah, I think it's when you feel empowered after working for a company for so long. You've got no lines with them anymore because you got your your severance. You got your payout after being cut off after 20 years. He doesn't give a shit and he was telling me that I think
say to people because that's where they hold all your information in a nap bank or whatever, putting your details. It's got all your security, like the whatever you name, your account details. It's all stored out there. And he said to me, because I said, Do you do people hack the banks? like is that ever happening is I never know attacking the banks, it's always inside jobs. When anything happens, the system, the firewalls and whatever they're too. They They probably get hacked, but they don't get hacked the way I was asking him, and he's like, it's always like someone's fucking let someone in or someone's brought about a USB and the dinosaurs off into the service centre and like today,
it was interesting. I was looking at our like firewalls that we have set up from like, I think it's called wordfence. Yep.
On our website, and it shows you how many attacks have happened across their whole network
and I've created a great story.
So I saw the graph, and it's sort of like standard sand and sand and then there's a big peak. That's like the start of January. It goes up heaps like heaps of extra attacks.
Anyone want to have a guess where I think it was? And so this is taking this is from everyone who uses their server Yeah, so they any website like WordPress websites, essentially essentially using this? They had an increased amount of attacks. Early Jan, what do you think it was? news resolutions, people signing up for ship paying stuff online. Getting people at that point, I'm guessing but I reckon Iran
is that going to happen? So the call Yeah, I mean, I'm not in that sort of diplomacy game. You're in the bro science. Exactly. gronk science. But the know the reason I say it was because if you look it up 97 there were
like, what is it called, like councils like the equivalent of like, low level
Many websites that had been
defaced really with Iranian stuff after
qasem soleimani was killed, don't you happy? That is good.
And so I my guess would be that a bunch of independent people may be also connected to the regime was actively attacking American websites, whether that be businesses or
Iranians, the Iranians would have been doing the attacks on American sites yet or could have Yeah, it could have been like proxies by proxy. Like cyber teams What do you think of that? Nice theory joy?
Yeah, it's good. It's good. Sitting stands out for George. I'm a bit lost but yeah, your buddy Mannion lost. Yeah, I know this is interesting. You listen to the show all the time. Did that not make sense?
Yet none early, so
hang on. I've landed on a website that started playing like German, old German music and it would be and someone had hacked it and defaced it and put some banner and there was some riding I couldn't read and those I
like that shit happens all the time. And so what Josh is saying is after the US attack Iran there's people in Iran that do these attacks on American websites. Yeah, I get just it just it's a I don't know what
what what people even get out of it. People going Why would they do that? Well protest why Yeah, but why do people do it on these sites? Like what are they personally getting to walk because I'm guessing they just run like automated things, which basically says, Okay, go and look up every website forward slash WP admin. If Damn you losing people at this show, imagine forward slash WP admin. I get it. If you've ever
If you go forth, let's just simplify it if you go forward slash login, and we're going to run a database of 10 million websites. Now, if it's forward slash login, then try these different brute force. brute force method methods. So you could say, the wedges I sleep it's
cyber security expert. I'm literally giving you what they gonna say. I want someone who's giant hack I want someone who actually can hack I could hack you couldn't you can.
When Sam says it, what could you got more white than me?
So I was I could social engineer your credit card details.
My mom's credit card, just asked my son
is on my phone or just Apple Pay my
chips. Yeah, I'll have two more. Okay. No, I was just looking at
Some of the analytics that they provide, and I do want to say there if they know attacks from Iran on our website, so no now's. I know.
But notice I came across the network. Yeah. Okay. But you would expect to see at least one in ours if they've got a mess. We haven't done anything to them.
Why would he run attacking attacking us personally, because you just said that the right.
Right? That hasn't that's not a negative narrative. And I'm, I'm just saying that Yeah, who's who's deciding on that?
I just think this isn't against us versus Iran. Very clear on that says, I don't like where you're taking it. But if you look, if you look at the whole network outside of us, don't make it about us.
Let's say we have this combo now. It's actually pretty boring. But anyway, last night was fun. Yeah, and saves. We got an email someone who couldn't make it to our event last night. Thank you to
Michel torvill who also couldn't make it and Dylan torvill? Yeah, they can't make it because they're 13,000 kilometres away. You know how I know they're 13,005 my friends. Yeah. I said you got Michelle on there? I do.
I've got to deal three day deal. couldn't make it. And he's mama in him. They bought two tickets and Gemma watts gave them away. Yeah. And then we also got an email from Emma, Emma, who couldn't make it. There was up in Queensland, I think, but wanted to get behind the gronk and support the fire relief. So what you were suggesting because we were thinking we could put a donate thing on our Facebook group, admin, all that sort of stuff. We thought, how can we get the same effect?
Craig Harper, our mate, Craig Harper, I might if you go on to his Facebook page most Yes. He's got Craig Harper's bushfire fundraiser. It's awesome. And so he's already raised a bunch of bunch of thousands. And so we'll put it in the face with our 4700 so good.
So, we've had a bunch of our friends do this as well called lock rise, or cash, but we So what we'll do
if you wanted to come last night, but you couldn't make it, but you would also like to still donate. It would mean a lot if you got behind Craig's event which will be on our Facebook group and our Facebook event. So sorry, sorry, the No, no, no, it actually is I'm just reading the description so it's gonna be a
bit hard for me, but it's a two hour workshop.
On the exact same thing, yeah, we're looking for Well,
we're gonna have a on our Facebook page, a link to donate
necessarily as we're going to piggyback on someone else. So you can piggyback and help they give out a quad lock one. I think it's stopped.
But if you still want to donate and you and you got some cash, because as we learned last night, from someone who was on the ground Lana will
A report of Channel Nine is king cash is king not cash is trash like well, Grant Cardone, would you believe in a meeting today and someone said cash is trash Really? And I said, Grant Cardone I went.
Who said that? Friend of mine, but it wasn't anything to do with the way grant says it.
What was it about? I can't remember. But it wasn't. He did. He just knew that grant says that all she was being funny. Yeah, yeah. It's a daily talk show. If you've enjoyed the show, leave us a podcast review. Five stars is appreciated. What do you smile and say words, words of wisdom? What
Bianca's just said Iran is cancelling the daily tool.
Easily can be so annoying. God but I'm doing so much research.
Yeah, they can do that. George, how would you like to finish the show? What do we normally say? You can end it for us. Oh, you want me to end it? Yeah. Have you done you live right yet? Yeah.
Did those May when I was like, when I was eating and I said about venture IP, and the
the fact that you can get shared hosting 50% off for the first year, just use the promo code today. Ts. So for people who don't know, venture IP, its web hosting. So it's like if you wanting to get a website set up, they've got a bunch of other stuff too. Yeah, domains. VPS. Is that who Jay sweet hosting, email hosting? Yeah, all that stuff. And so you can you can get all that there and they're based in Melbourne. Great. 24 hours of one. Anything else? Nothing. That's pretty much it. All right, George. So activate him
working on so he can finish it. All right, George, finish off the show.
Thanks for listening, guys.
We'll see you tomorrow.
