daily Talk Show Episode 615 What's going
on guys? What's happening
Paris Humphrey in the building welcome.
We got cam on the couch,
couch we got the full page a Jason page a team
in the building just about almost here for emotional support for moral support. Now
I get that.
Yeah, I needed him at work a few days ago and I knew that was gonna come You know, you went there the other day like, we come with me and he was happy to do it
outside as well. Because just to make sure you got the right place.
You're waiting outside and then Tommy's I think cams coming as well. Why do you say that? It's like
I saw him from the balcony I was at on on the blower I was looking down. I was like, that guy in the red head. I know.
That's cam. Well, you can either have one or two choices. You can pretend like if you're in a cafe pretend like you didn't say the person that you know, or like lean in and go up and say hello saying, you know,
I usually don't lean in but I always really liked people who lean in those people always say hello. I'm always like, the best and then when it comes to me doing it I might not Haven't seen you
say so. Does it make you feel nice when someone acknowledges you there? Oh, yeah, but it's certainly Okay. Now I think it is.
I did it the other day we had a meeting on Let me guess it was a jack posts. Wife, Bianca, she was right. I just I felt like such a boss because I didn't normally I'll just be sweating being like, I've seen someone This is a nightmare. What do I do? I'm in another meeting. And I was just like,
hang on a sec.
Hi, Bianca. She's like, Oh, hey, Josh. I want to come back to my maybe it was a nice moment. Yeah, that
panic that even though you really know someone's name, I don't know their name, even though you know, you don't want to say it.
Yeah, well, I've definitely felt that of light where it's especially like doing the live shows because even when we when we came into your office, there is a sense We know everyone do I call cam cam or do I call him Franco do I got everyone's got to fucking names? Night me. I know he called you know, he called you a little little Pete. He actually did in the podcast What is that? Hey, I'll use a is her nickname. Okay, and I caught a little Pete.
So you spend some time on doing the regional radio
thing? Yeah, I did. I did that for like, like two years. And
after that you're as well. Well, that was my experiment. That was what I was thinking. So
obviously, this is not the path for me, I guess. Yeah. But yeah, no, I did. Like I needed about six months in Tamworth. And I did it with super radio network. So that was that tried to build this network. And then I went from there to wimba where I worked for RCA hit.
They have a big guitar.
Yeah, it was the station was right across the road. You could see it. That's where kill worked.
He's Kellen Wally. They had a show in Tamworth. But they've got the music festival. It's meant to be sick. That place has like, what's the population? And then on the weekend of the music festival, like triple
Yeah, I think it goes from like, 2300 to like 160,000 for the one weekend, it's like that wake is sick. It's the rest of the year. That's like, not a ghost town. Yeah.
But so is it like, there's the other part like in the US, you go to where did the Taylor Swift go to that sort of country? Like, what's it called? Texas, Tennessee, Tennessee, Tennessee, Nashville. Nashville,
it's like Tamworth is like the Nashville of Australia that's
what everybody says there as well. They say Australia is Nashville,
but it's still in Australia and real bug It is something about the sort of American version of it that maybe it's just for Australians
Yeah, yeah. You when you go over there sighs it but it's like all from the movies. You know, the accents and but then in Australia. Yeah, I might you want to do music Yeah,
yeah, I mean, I'm guessing you've got a bunch of followers that you accumulated while being in
Tamworth was a really, really strange experience. Because basically, when I went there, they just launched a new station, the station was 92, nine, then they changed it to one FM and it was supposed to be like Tamworth tasted like take on modern music and was supposed to be this whole new thing. But then it only existed for the six months that I was there. And then they rebranded back to the old thing as I left. And so no one really listened to the station in that time. It was just a new thing. I mean, I made like, two or three friends there, and I'm not really sure if anyone was listening was called one FM. Yeah, it was one FM at the time, but then it changed back
to 92.9. It's the old rebrand reversal. You just you double down on any life, didn't work. Six months is not long to give something
tries it. Well, the boss got fired as well. It was a whole the whole time I was there. It's a really big. Basically I got there the week that everything's done. To go downhill and there was like, big investigations and it was just the craziest experience I've ever had in my life. This story was already on right here today. That's why I feel like I can share it because I've already spoken about it. But it was just an insane time and then this new CD sort of came in and he was great that I only had him for a week because I was already on my way out. I already knowing that I was going to town with no not time with Toowoomba. Yeah,
now I'm getting them mixed up with everybody else in my life. Takes 10 minutes he was in tuber, I think. Yeah. Ron john was in Toowoomba. Yep. It was just the whole time. We've had the whole tumour on our show. Yeah,
yeah. Maddie Acton was into number as well. We get him on the show. But yeah, Tanya and Ryan both had the same co host that I had when I was there. So a guy called Hamish, he has been the host of the heat network, I guess up there, the heat brand for 20 years, so forever, and he sort of had every person who's gone That has shed he actually just resigned this week.
What's he doing now?
um he's gonna go and work for the turf club there What is it?
Like the club with the horses? Yeah it's a it's a big thing to me is very like it's got the most millionaires per capita or something for you earlier it's very lot up a class regional I guess so things like the turf club have taken quite seriously there
is the guitar from Salvador is it? Is there anything in the guitar
in Tamworth? It is plastic
one if it was
Yeah, it's like paper mache a really well it's hard paper mache.
It's it's fat Fridays today it is. And so we were actually we I called Jace and he didn't answer and he called me back and said What the fuck do you want? Yeah. And I said, What should we have for fat Friday's with Paris? And he mentioned that you have a thing for McDonald's cheeseburgers. But there's one small caveats
Yeah no mate
yeah I made I made you a veggie oh
yeah I am a veggie I have daddy veggie
a dirty there's nothing dirty about a veggie I mean she don't wear deodorant as well
or you just have dirt on you and yeah
I could imagine a lot of there's probably correlation between videos and the people that use crystals as deodorant crystals
no I have not used crystals I did try the natural thing for a while it does not work so
just try the
natural deodorant my it's sort of what
I like Mr. Pitts you using that still sir? Yeah, but I'm getting irritation that's that's actually found another one need will actually on my met Andre found it but I'm gonna move to that name. What is it called? Can't remember it's gonna
it's gonna purple label on the top of it. Smells like lavender. It's
probably made of lavender. Yeah,
it's probably natural.
Fat Friday's let's do makeovers.
Yeah. So I mean, you still pay full price for a cheeseburger.
You get a discount. Do you think Actually how much it is, but you do get money off. I think it's like $1 or something.
And so if you have you should have been in a scenario where you're with friends and they're getting backers, and they're like, okay, Paris, what do you want? And you're like a cheeseburger without the mate. They're like, what? Sorry, what?
Yeah, I guess but I don't feel their judgement
been adventure. Time changes. Well,
so I was like a vegan like five years ago. And I did that for two years. And then I moved up to the snow and I did a season there was a shift there. And basically they were like, We only cater to vegetables and meat eaters, not vegan. So then I went vegetarian then and I've just been that way ever since.
That's still good when you're in the snow. Were you working? were you doing radio?
Yeah, no, I wasn't lifting. Oh, yeah, I was fully into I'd never done radio at that point. So that was like, right out of high school was like six months, went to the snow and then I came back and I started working in a surf shop and doing community radio and stuff like that,
you know, I lifti once threw a snowball at my I really don't know if you went meant to do it to my face but he hit me and it made my nose bleed just pouring into this it's almost like it was good because it's like you know I look what you've done you've just bleeding this all over
well very not anyway I want to try this cheeseburger no mates I haven't eaten meat from Mac is that eaten chicken? I think anagha does something but I haven't eaten the beef in over a year of trying it like if you just eliminate the beef you don't end up usually eating from McDonald's. Yeah, you
end up opting for something. You put the fries in it as a replacement. Yeah, cuz Jace was also saying that the hungry Jacks have a new burger. But that's got bacon it doesn't have the meat but it's got chips and bacon. Yeah,
it's got cheesy sauce and bacon in it with chips and just the bun. And then recently in New Zealand, like this week, they launched just chips in a bun and that's it
now. Wow. Saves Can you go down to the garage and get one of the boxes of the One of our clients that we're working with
I want to show Paris this product so can you give cam my debit card cam You are the king of going out and getting food Yeah Is that fair to say?
Yeah I can do that Do you know where magazines from here because we were literally fought it probably physically made it just down the road. It sounds like he's made it before.
So what do we want so
I'm not going I'm doing what Paris is doing.
Okay orders are we
yeah so I stealing whatever you I think to get orders but just I think get I get three of the the cheeseburgers without the
meeting. I made me three cheeseburgers even though they can just bring a two large chips. Yep. And then one cheeseburger with meat from a place and if you want anything good as 97 you don't want anything else not
for me. Yes, yeah. Please repeat the order. need to feel safe the
the order is four cheeseburgers three of them with no meat. And two large fries.
Grind. That's it, then you're gonna get anything. I'm like cheeseburgers. Yeah.
Good. Can you bring the receipt back texture? techtron
Yeah, of course. Excellent. Thank you, sir.
Yeah, well, so what we have a process if you want and I can tell you die. The tricky is accompanies the trick is just take a photo of it and upload it onto a Google Drive or something like if that's the bare minimum, right? Yeah, and then throw the receipt and then you just have a digital copy. If worse, comes to worse, and they ordered you. You can upload all of these images into a programme that will scan the text and you could type in McDonald's, and it'll pop up the receipts that have McDonald's listed in them. So that's just if you needed to go that far, it's called OCR. OCR. Yeah, so check this out. This is delicious plant based chicken. Really? Have you ever tried it?
well, it's not it doesn't have soy I'm even though Saying game changes I soy. I just don't scares me a little bit
100% vegan GMO free soy free. So the thing is you get like the patties from the supermarket. I've got sheet in them because they're already like they're wet. They really deviate. And this is like a dry product. Look at it. Oh boys look like noodles. I got
like, nutrition nutritional yeast.
Well, it's what's it What's in it? It's like mung bean and way to protein. Anyway, you add some water and some oil. You can have this you can have it because I think you I think you would appreciate it, but I'll
fry them up and tell you what I think. Yes.
One thing I want to ask you though, is why are vegetarians always seeking out products that meet all? You need a hold of
All right, I'll tell you exactly why actually, because I love me like it tastes so good. It's nice. It's in everything. But I don't want to eat other animals. So it's like when you turn Vijay heaps of people like This, they still love like they still love mate. It's just the animals that they're like, Oh, I don't want to eat you anymore. So you can stay alive and I'll just get something similar. It's getting really good now as well. Oh yeah,
that is the thing it's like it's getting to a point where it's if you have the option in the moment have a party that isn't made. You might as well go the thing that's like it. We know the benefits for the world.
Have you had the beyond burger
within the states we did
is beyond the US one. Australia one called
they call it I think just the beyond burger sorry, in grilled and stuff is
so beyond Australia. possible in America? Yeah.
You've tried it. What did you think?
Yeah, that was great. Yeah, I mean, the thing was, I farted a lot. So I went video for a month. Very gassy. I was eating a lot of like black beans and stuff.
That's normal diet when I went vegan, and Ron told me like after everything I ate, I'm going to be bloated, I'm pregnant, and I did my coffee. Every single meal for probably the first three months Yeah. And then I sort of got used to it. But yeah,
what's the down the pipe for
this late my down and play it has been like I made this amazing passivate like the best thing you've ever seen in your life from scratch and I've been eating it like every day for lunch and dinner, which is sort of shame because I shouldn't be having that many carbs. That's fine. Usually just like, I have like toast or chase toasty every day at work just because it's free and it's there. What do
you mean? It's friggin it's there so
frixion absolute trap those joints?
It's almost like a virgin lounge set up for
ya toasties It's a treasure
trove of cereals and toast and toast condiments. What do you call that? Like
not telecom station
stuff? Yeah, basically so I have that every morning.
Why carbs always free?
How often? Like, is it cheap? You never
see like boiled eggs for free. You eight to eat eggs. Yeah.
Yep. Some people just want to see the world burn again.
It will be cheese ADA.
Yeah, I like cheese. I'm like a cheese girl. But I'm not much of a milk person like I don't buy milk soy milk type of gal even like
soy. Almond milk.
Yeah almond I don't mind. Yeah, chocolate soy milk though so many different levels. It's actually on my down applied. I have a glass of chocolate milk every night before I go. Lovely. Yeah,
I used to have I used to get that. But for something that I think there's a there's a part of me that thought it was healthy. Like I thought it was like oh, it's the healthy chocolate milk that's so sugary. That is their refined sugars in chocolate milk
is every had the new magnums?
Yes, they're so good. They taste normal.
So good is also the same brand.
Yes, but they're not. The magnums aren't so so that can't even talk. But they're good.
They're good. You just nailed that. And so you have the big pastor thing. So you're a pastor then
pastor and then I love some raspberries. Raspberries every day. Oh, blueberries because someone told me once that it'd be good for my brain cells, and I was like, I trust you. So I've done it every day since and that's about it. I think with the brekkie schedule, you don't eat as much, but when you do it, it's normally quite carby
Yeah, we're trying to get into the office.
Uh, recently, we've been doing the latest stuff like full 45. But the I'd say like the average is probably about 430.
It's still very early. Yeah, how fun you have to come to go to work
six minutes. I like literally just have to rip up the road to get to the station here live. So that's no worries, because when I was an announcer in regionals we got there at 330. So it was more.
What were you talking?
Well, my co host just had a way of doing it. He'd done it for 20 years. And he was like 330. That's arrival time. That's when we do our
star take that long to look for news.com to
read the original paper.
And so yeah, well, would you do
well just so the show practice, you still have The same amount of breaks and I guess the standard is still quite high. And Rachel's, I think this is like sort of misconception like, Oh, you can just go out and do whatever you like. And that's what everyone talks about why it's so fun doing regionals, but it's really not the case gives you content directors only got one or two shows to take care of. And that's yours. So you're out there and then you know that still on you about it, even if you're not necessarily being surveyed, but also, you want to get out of there too. So you're always thinking like you never know when someone's listening or who like what show you're going to get a checked on. So I think you still have to worry about your content and try and do something different each day. We will push you the end to five 530 or like 520 trying
to get back mandolins shedule rock
ISIS sleeping all the time though. him right here. I never do. Like you always just sleep through my lungs. No, no, not through the show. I would always get there. But I'd say once every three weeks I'd be a morning where it would be five to six and I just Getting it last second be like, I'm so sorry.
I mean, it's right. Working in radio is a job that produces quite a bit of cortisol. It's like the stress hormone like, why, like worried about not waking up so that it's it's the early morning, right? Because when you there it's all fun like a lot of it's fun. And you get a great team that you work with. So it's even more fun. Yeah. But there is a stress about just having a life where you are getting up within the for a for a hour. Jackie
what time were you going to bed?
Oh, back then. Oh, now I want to say back then. I was probably a basically the same as now. So I'm like a daytime napper and I'll have like three hours during the day such late don't really
sleep and then
what time naps already today?
No, I haven't. But usually it is from about like 230 to 530 around
so you should be in sleep right now.
Yeah, I could go to sleep right now on that lounge right? Just snuggle up but no i around then I have like a three hour nap sometimes shorter sometimes longer. It just depends. And then I'll wake back up have my Dina like chat to people ring mom and dad cuz I still live back in Adelaide and have a chat with the family and then go back to sleep really. And obviously I'll do a bit of work in there as well in that like, little pocket of time that Mr. So yeah, I wake up at 530 and then I end up fully asleep by 1030.
What about going from being on air? To going behind the scenes? There's sort of the cliche around everyone who works behind the scenes is is yearning to be behind the mic. What was the whole that's just what a classic that was us. What's the recalibration in thinking about content when it's for someone else?
Oh, it's it was definitely the right thing for me to do because just it's hard to explain, but I guess being behind the mic was awesome, but I think that it sort of crushed my soul a little bit. I like I'm too young for it. I don't have the stories I'm not. I just wasn't meant to be there. And I knew that I've got the skills of I can actually talk into a mic and have a bit of a chat. But I knew from six months in that I was not meant to be behind the mic. And all I was thinking about is, I've got sort of good ideas myself, but I've got way better ideas for other people. Like when I look at other people's shows, I think, Oh, this would fit well there. And I get to know their show really well. And I could just tell that I didn't have that same passion for my own show. And it's probably because I was craving a team. And that's what you get in a capital city. And obviously, I wasn't about to wake up and be on like Metro breakfast, but I could work my way into producing and being behind the scenes and getting that team that I was craving and making content in that way. Well, yeah, yeah. What just went it was for myself and I was doing on air stuff. I just had nothing.
I spent $21 and 90 cents of Mac is it has actually come back.
Yeah, I need to get that
I didn't get the notification of what I spent through calm bank for business account. Yeah, I do every time. It's interesting. Anyway, you know what it is? I didn't have that mindset coming out of radio and going into a produce online content producer. And I probably don't think you did either. Yeah, no, you probably thought like me, these days would be much better.
The only thing missing here.
That's my favourite part is that I can come up with the idea and then Jason page and the rest of the team can go get we love that. Let's run with it. And then once I've done all the prep work, it's this to make something off. And if it doesn't go, Well, it could be my fault because it was prepped badly. I mean, chances are it's probably going to be because maybe they haven't taken it the way they wanted to. And so I love that I can be like, he's a good idea. To me, she plays with it rather than being like he's a good idea. Well, now it's up to me to do it.
What was your favourite break ever? When you're on air and what was the biggest bomb
I had, my favourite break ever was probably it was in Toowoomba. And I did like a bit of a prank on my co host. So basically, he did a cover of a dean Lewis song and it was disgusting. Like it was so bad. And so I was building this up for weeks, as well as planting the seeds as I've got a really big interview coming up, but you can't be in on it. It's just going to be a one on one and then we'll play it back on the show the next day, and he was like, not happy about it. And always I call you leave me out of this big thing. And I was like, trust me, it's got to be just me
shows that on air that you were talking,
just just dropping little seeds, but also office so that he actually believed it. And then it got to this interview, and I just had someone who was actually friends with Dean Lewis do a really good impression of him. I played him the song and I had him get really upset about it that someone had tarnished his emotional ballad and they really had to speak to management. So I had to cut off the interview. And then I was right that who's
Dean Lewis has made That's just doing a bit of impersonation.
Yeah, yeah. So he did it for me. And yeah, I just played it back to him on it. But in the context of I asked the boss if I should play this, and he did say yes, so I'm a little bit nervous, because I know you're gonna be mad. But I'm going to play it anyway. Because it's just, it's rough. And it'll be funny if I play it. And then hey, like, it was the only thing I really did that he really fully believed and I could just tell that he was so horrified that it had happened and yeah, I loved it.
Right number one, right. Do
you think people loved it too? This is giving giving it
not other people love it, because it was where we got the most feedback for something we did without asking for it like from from the audience. They loved it. But also, they surprised me have been do and at my old work as well. So that was Yeah, that was good. We interviewed her and then I was like, I want to be best friend. And then they took me to Australia Zoo and she was like, Hey, I'm here. It's been do and she like hung out with me. It was the best thing
I've one regret. I have He's one of my co hosts, a friend of mine had some relations with one night
so he met you but you had sex with the co host. No one of my friends, your friend
saying the word one of my friends.
Did you get What are you saying? No, I misinterpreted one of my friends.
I one of my car, my car.
My friends had some sexual relations with one night. And does that not make sense? Now
one of my, my co host.
I had to put it in Bogan speak, trying to be sensitive. But I told a friend of mine, who's a radio producer, and he's like, dude, you have to record not with it not going out. But you have to record the conversation where you ask her about us. We just sort of, hey, so I heard it. You know, I never did it because I was like, Oh, this is it's for one. She would have fucking blown off her. I can like if thought it was going at, which probably would have been the content as well. Yeah. I'm gonna know that I didn't do that.
That's what my one I think I'm happy. So,
the thing is, it's like the situations you put yourself in on radio like doing something like that. It is like you're trying to sort of increase emotions like there's a chance that guy you co host the you know, actually gets paced. Yeah and really annoyed at you but then that's the gold too.
Oh, yeah, that was that was the gold in the break because he went on air to me just looked at me with this disappointed look and said, Well, what did we learn from that person? I knew that it was gonna be you shouldn't do interviews yourself. And I just said that that wasn't really Day Lewis. And that was when he was like, wow, but his face I've never seen anything like it not even from my parents. He was just, well, he was livid but he was also older than my parents. So
so that's why I felt that like, parent vibe. Very skin like he was gonna tell me
Added to if I who puts off the dead vibe
I'm using my hands
I know you're a dad, but I think that you've got a dad
but like a kind caring
in a dad way Oh good, good.
Hold my child if I had one
he's made my son cry
so many times I enter into create sort of a creative mode. Yeah so I like to go with their emotions I like to work out how can we actually work on this so I was he was roaring like a lion and then I wrote like a lion but apparently I rode too loud and so he was in tears man rah rah a too loud but he but then he was also he wanted to watch Cat Boy
Yeah, well I think it's
nice. I love learning experiences. That's something that's like really important to me. And so I think that I'm constantly like the other day when he was in, he was talking about he wants to watch Cat Boy now. And we said no, you can watch Cat Boy tomorrow. He said no, I don't want tomorrow. I said, Okay. Would you prefer never or tomorrow? And he didn't know we've got cam coming aboard ON CAM cam is back in the building. Thanks, buddy. I thought you did the Insta stories of you doing that you didn't it? Yeah. Okay, so we gotta go back to the mic so you can tell us okay,
all these chips are hot. If Wow, they like severely hot. Oh, this is great.
I see. How does that have any, any people out and about it. The Mac is Yep
yep people out and about as always, but no I'm really interested. Any flinch when you said cheeseburger night?
I use the touchscreen I didn't
kiss you were ashamed of my favourite odour
any opportunity not to talk to people
yeah, I put a little thing on there if there's no mate okay now that's no meat though
it's just pathetic as well yeah
it's just in its infant stages burger
I never so in the US in and out to have a vegetarian burger feels like a killer but the Which one should I try first? I should try this.
Sorry. Anyone want a cheesy?
Oh, that's gonna be given to you.
Yeah, the thing that makes these good usually is you need to have enough tomato sauce like it needs to be a little bit That should wave said no you can't say extra though cuz I don't know what they're doing.
So I can't just
extra it's too too much. Okay, I worked at Mac is two and a half years, which was bragging. I'm Mac is Matt Barker in South Australia.
Is that like a good Mac country? like is that out of the city?
city but it's like a rural city. I guess there's enough people there. It's where I went to high school as well. So, you know, I'd be in the drive through in the year 11th come through the drive
does the black bits
break them off?
I'm just I've heard that they can you look up the skin. No, no,
I don't black but he's good. He was cause what made you eat sugar every day? What are you worried about?
Take the risk.
Leave a little guy. I have lollies once.
Like one one week.
Okay. And I was a part of buying this. Oh, yeah. All right. Well, so I'm putting chips in
Yeah, that's perfect. Okay, I'm worried about your quantity there but if
you feel comfortable too many or too many too
Okay, I've just gone for one layer. Okay? Yeah.
Okay, so what we're eating right now is potato bread and cheese. And some sauce and pickle is pickled veggies. Now this is really good. Right cheese. Okay,
cheese. Cheese, cheese.
I mean sugar bread is not
that's black spots. They're actually pockets of sugar.
I knew I shouldn't have had pockets of excess sugar.
Really? Yeah. On a potato from so when the potatoes fried. They darken quicker than the rest of the potato. Yeah, sugar burns, actually. Yeah.
I like it.
I mean, you're not getting a great deal more with the maiden. I like that. Really the flavour The air is still like the ketchup in them the pickle and the sweetness of the band is doing all of the work is getting yes it's getting the stimulated senses
you missed out Did you get the normal one cab?
Yeah no mon now isn't
it's it's good as always
do you feel regretful that you haven't taken a leap of faith?
I have actually tried will have been telling myself that I want to try to eat less meat so yes I do wish I got
that I said that for me before I think
you can still take it out nice and put the gun down he doesn't have to wait.
I can make mine a double the
show for you for the vegetarian Is it about the animal psyche warring wanting.
It's about the animals but also, like, in the beginning, I was like I haven't even saying game changes. I know that everybody else has but I was into all of the other documentaries that were out back then. And I watching all the videos of youtubers because that was really popular when I stopped eating meat like five years ago was like the thing to be a vegan online. And just online not even real. It was a bit shame in real life, but you know, it's like, all the influences were doing it. And so I felt really strongly and passionately about animals and about the environment. But now I've done it so long that I've sort of lost that part of it. I still care about it, but I'm not as passionate and I just don't do it because I can't imagine going back
to recognise more videos in Adelaide.
I don't know. I mean, it is Melvin
jurian Radha guy or a banana chip.
Yeah, yeah. So they
Yeah, and they love bike riding and POC runs as well. My mom has done some Park runs with them. But
yeah, yes and no, you get into cycling.
No, no, I wasn't
more than five bananas in a day.
How many Nanos Have you eaten and
I could never do the extreme high carb low fat That I've done like 10
and then you'd also like
well at the time I wasn't eating thought up but I mean now I totally would 10 and
so 10 bananas in a day is that in a smoothie or
yes smoothie for me but I like the high carb low fat thing is just that you can eat apparently as I say as many fruits as you like so and they say to do it in abundance,
so have you done that before?
No, no, no, I just like I was never into that side of it. I was just having like a lot of Avalon toast. Banana smoothies. And like
I'm really kabhi but garlic bread as well because a lot of garlic breads of bacon and like fake imposter and yeah, yeah. Was it right for me to get
into the YouTube saying Do you want youtubers Yeah, I love it. Who are you watching?
At the moment? I'm watching my David dobrik because everybody does, and I'm watching a lot of like professional tattoo artists, rather But I used to be really into the creators themselves and I could have listed off like 30 people off the top of my head that I was watching at least
five like Who do you Who did you still like?
Well that before I got here I was watching Shane Dawson there's like a chick called Mia Saurus at the moment she's good she's like my age and make some like funny type of content. Um, who else I can't even off the top my head name the ones I'm watching at the moment. I'm watching
Lucy moon. She's been watching for years. Yeah, yeah. And Lucy think Lucy fingers is the one you're thinking of.
I mean to YouTube drama as well.
What metals and shit is in the culture, the drama within the culture
is in like the so there's a YouTuber called Niecy on from years ago. And he's just got a lot of drama around him and I've never really consumed his content, but I love all the other videos that other people have made about how terrible he is. I know that's the problem. What's he done? Oh, he's a bit of a criminal. He's done some like dirty criminal. And just like not gotten in trouble for it, and he's been a bit of a crepe online, I guess and so, yeah, there's a lot of like, exposing oneasy on videos,
and I watched those of you saying that girl who like, lied about her age apparently she's like, she was 12 but she was saying she was 13 Danielle
Khan. She got it on musically. Yes, I have seen her.
I went down a horrendous rabbit hole the other weekend. Did you feel dirty after Yeah, that's how I felt because it's just like this young girl who's extremely overly sexualized. But then what she she was lying that she was in a one year older than she was. Yeah. So what's the what's the real big deal about I guess like when you're 12 you're not even attain your prey Tang versus 13. whiny about it that all the guys if I could. This is disgusting. She's Well, I think I thought she was upset.
My Danielle cone. I spent half my early life saying I was all that I was you know, like, it's one of the things you want to be older when you're younger but then you're old and then you're like, I'm so young. She's
got like really long fake nails. And she The weird thing is us radio. I think that they've hit this point like I don't know whether it's always been this way that Australian radio is way cooler than us like American radio. You've got these like music jocks. And they're like, trying to be like, you can say this weird status shift where this musically person comes into the studio and they're like, they're thinking that this is going to be that big like that talking. It's like the weirdest thing
Yeah, I like
the the whole Danielle calm thing and that part of the internet. It doesn't entertain me, but it fascinates me. And if I do I regulate full down YouTube halls and so for your job being a producer, what do you do you think this helps like looking at being abreast of YouTube drama is this Joshua three second,
I'm I would say that it works at a disadvantage to me, but in the moment I like to tell myself I'm getting educated on pop culture. If anybody asked me that any of this, I don't know what to tell them right away. But I know that's not the case. It's probably true fringe. Yes, it's way too fringe not at all relevant to the audience of Jason page, a vote for now, but also, it's just taking up my brain space that could be filled with things that are appropriate for the show that I'm choosing not to consume at that time.
I mean, you gotta have what, you gotta do what you like, I mean, you gravitate, you can only do so much consuming shit that isn't actually your interest.
And so what some weird shit you've picked up this week, from just being in the radio Zeitgeist
for just like this,
obviously, a lot of hold in fact, showed love.
Yeah, what is one of holding facts? What else have we really talked about this week? That's been like, big and I've learned to bounce I mean,
to fly then is that what you
do? Say you don't the camera so it's like cuz
What else have you What have you guys been talking about and learning. He's looking at the show,
I've got this thing where I'll pull up the wrong shirt and I'll let you know
after this after the show, it's like that shows disposed of in my mind and even if I've done all this research and made like 10 info sheets on something and explained it 20 different times. As soon as that show is over, it's out of my mind unless it's some might carry on light story out
here I'm very much the same.
Yeah, and it's it's because as well, in the environment that Kim and I are in it just keeps moving so fast one shows over in Jason page, I ready to move on to the next thing as well. And so it's just you have to dispose of that because you've got to be thinking of a replacement for immediately.
New news, new things are happening. So yeah, yeah. So unless it's a big thing like the Holden closing down,
which is they're doing a Holden thing. They've done a holding thing this whole week, and hold and Hot Lap today.
I actually I had a website called Melbourne geek was a blog. And it was a thirst trap website. Yeah, it was just 10 five, and I wouldn't got hot, I don't know, 2012 I started that and it's sort of fizzled out, and I stopped posting on it and like, from probably 2014 anyway, in 2016, I got a email from Holden, and they said, Hey, Josh, like, I would love you to do something for Melbourne geek on your blog for Holden. How would you feel about us giving you a car and we'll organise a bunch of things for you to do. And I wrote back and said, Hey, guys, like no one looked at Melbourne geek in three years. And the marketing person's like, oh, that doesn't matter. Like you can just post it to socials or whatever. my socials had probably 1000 followers. I was like, okay,
maybe this is
sleeping on the road.
And so I ended up they organised for us for girlfriend and I took off work and we went to the Yarra Valley but that organised a wine too It's a wet dry wet driving and then we get like we won't drink is we wouldn't really drink but like all let's let's give it a give it a go lean into it. It was fact because like we'd gotten the car to a vineyard and then we had something to drink and we were fucking tipsy and we couldn't move we couldn't leave the
Did you sleep in the car?
No we ended up sleeping in the van we actually start walking and I said to Brian, Mike I don't think we can we can drive for a bit. And so then we just took a nap on the vignette, like just randomly amongst sort of the gripe. right but then that was also the trip where I crashed a drone which was absolutely those expensive
probably sleeping crash Yes,
I'm so and they got the dumbest like, Did you remember that video? Did you ever say it's I think he showed me Yeah,
it's got video,
but it was made no sense for holding I never explained what the features were of the astronaut like I was meant to be Melbourne gate, but they didn't tell me that headline asst shit and so the whole time like why the fuck is the light blinking anyway? It was actually like assisting me when I was driving I had no idea. But I think that could be why holdens fact?
I think that could be why because if it happened to you, yeah, I mean, how many how many?
I mean, what happens to all the because a lot of influences have Holden's
I guess could be through getting back could be through dealerships. Right. And so dealerships are actually does that mean, there's no holding dealerships you'd know about this?
Yeah. So what's going on the way that things are working is you can buy a Holden for the next year and a half or so I think it's to the end of 2021. And so the dealerships is staying as these for most of that time, and from what we've spoken, because they've said that people who work there can't actually do any media, but the people that we've spoken to have said that that's happening, but there's people who are going to be working for them for the next 10 years because there's warranties on cars that last that long that they've still got to fulfil. So you The factories and stuff like that, although they might be making new cars, there's still going to be space for people who are following through on those warranties and fixing them and doing all that fun stuff.
I was talking to someone today about cars, Mercedes, and how Mercedes and a bunch of other brands do this. They use other brands engines in a car. And so there's a bunch of societies that have like a Renault engineers.
That's like the Mercedes ute. I think it's like 59 990 or something. I saw it on a billboard driveway and I was like, that's cheap, but it's because they're using like a Nissan or something motor inside of us. Yeah,
yeah. Yeah, I would never tell you that.
No. No, the point is, it's paying for German car and getting a nice guys really fucking care. Yeah, so I get the point.
It's like you. It's sort of like a poser car, isn't it? Because it's not the car. It's just a little.
It's a German shell with an Asian Asia. Yeah, both reliable German engines and Engines
know what is it I remember as a kid getting it I wanted to get this big camera in the news gathering it's called EMG electronic newsgathering it's the big shot and what they what Panasonic had done, gone very early days but they actually took an EMG body of a camera and just put a ship cam quarter units on and so I nearly bought that I could have had like yeah
yeah you paying? You expect it's it's a it's dishonest to be honest.
Yeah, no, I think it's interesting around the cost
of it like getting a cheeseburger with
that is dishonest. The The one thing about radio, I guess is you have to talk about shit you don't necessarily care about?
have a way of making it tolerable to yourself?
Well see when I was in and out. So the worst part and the best part is that you don't have a producer say sort of picking what you're talking about. Anyway, as you guys would know. I might you can sort of just only pick the stories that you do somewhat care about. But I mean, we have those discussions pre show as well. It's like this is really relevant to our audience but maybe Jason page I don't necessarily feel passionate about it. So how can we find a way to make that a place that they want to speak from and how can they find a way to make this entertaining? But I guess it just, it's it's different for every single story but for me when I was in announcer if I couldn't offer something new to the story, then I just wouldn't talk about it like it just wasn't worth it even if say this whole thing that's likely something that unless my co host at my previous work was I really want to talk about Holden I just say now stuff it I'm not gonna talk about in songs in a row or
not just let the news do the work.
Just Yeah, just put something else in you know, like I
talk about it and share just good banter about Mercedes you how much bullshit
Yeah, but it just if my aim right here school, my radio school, teach a guy Sean Craig man if he was if you can offer something You to a story or a unique perspective, then you really have to think about why you told me about it. And I guess if I thought that it was going to be really shaped because I didn't know anything about it, then I just, I wouldn't go for it. But then it's different when you're in the metros, and you have to be you're providing more of service to you listeners as well.
I think people sniff it out, right? It's like the filter of light. But you can do it in a way. I think Jace does it really well, if there's a Yeah, talking about stuff.
Even the Holden stuff, doing the angle of the eBay
side of things. So it's like,
yeah, we don't understand this culture. But we can look at it from this perspective. Rather, be in like, pretending like you care,
and then you still have fun so that it's just then about how do we approach it, you can almost talk about anything with with the right angle. And you find the angle that you're like that you Yeah,
yeah. And like the team like the Jason page, it was so good at doing that. Because, like the Holden story, they brought it in, they're like, Where can we go with this and then we'll sit Around, we'd like six of us around a table pre show. And they always find a way to have that unique thing. So like, yeah, the merge thing was one idea. But the others were like, how can we go to a holding factory? Can we talk to this person? Can we talk someone who's raised for them? And it just Yeah, they always find something that fits the story, but it is just like throwing out like 20 ideas and finding that one that you like, yeah, that suits a show that works.
What do you think the future of radio is?
I love radio, for sure. But this is another reason why I was keen to sort of step away from announcing because I looked at my heart radio is right now in the landscape. And I thought, all right, I'm 21 years old. It's going to take me probably another six to eight years to get to a capital city station in the scheme of like the timeline of most announcers, that's sort of how things go. They move around and climb their way up and you sort of have to be around a certain age as well. I just thought, where do I fit into the radio land? Skype in that amount of time, and my answer was really nowhere. I don't know what's going to happen to radio in, like four years right now. It's awesome. But I just think that with the way that digital media is going, and podcasting, and how listeners can have a curated experience that suits them, I wonder what radio will do. But it's always going to have a place Jason page is a great example because their show is awesome. They're awesome on the radio, but their digital side, the podcast is just as successful. It's got a tonne of listeners. And I think that you need to be strong there to be strong over here in radio, whereas before just radio was enough. And I think that the future is just going to obviously get more and more networked. As soon as places have the opportunity to not be local, though, that drop it networks will no matter what they say. They're like, Oh, we've got to say local button. If they've got that phone call that was like friend today. You don't need to have a local Breakfast Show to make compliance. I would be very interested to say if there would be any brick Radio Show is sort of localised, I don't believe there would be because you can make so much money compared to what they're making and cut a lot of costs if that compliance was taken away, and the day will come as well for that. I think I heard noise really, I don't know what I'm talking about. What
does it actually really does say compliance. compliant the compliant what is the compliance bit in regards to a certain amount of local
to maintain a radio licence, they need to provide three hours I think of localised content. So to get have that frequency and have your FM licence, you need to be providing local content. So that's why I would say every SCI regional market has a breakfast show with a certain amount of local content and if it doesn't, but they're holding a holding a frequency in a market, they'll have a work type person who make content for that area. So for example, my previous show it was South Queensland, so we were across I think like five different markets but at Breakfast Show was for all of them and now work days was split across the different markets to stay compliant and they would make get specific localised content and those smaller markets within and then there's music how much Ozzy music Spain played.
Yeah. On the station.
Yeah, that's like yeah, press sort of stuff. So my weirdly enough, my first radio job, I was an announcer, but also a music programmer.
Multitasking, terrible at it as a producer, what? What is the task? So like, I think people might have an idea of what a radio producer does. And then there's some producers that have a lot more admin. It's an admin heavy. Yeah, you know, what do you actually do?
I think it just depends on the show. I'm lucky in my case that we share the admin side of producing across all three of us. So there's myself on the producer, and then there's Jane, who's also a producer and then Alex Souza, a pay and we all sort of do a little tiny bit of admin, but a normal Day in producing it's basically if I'm going from before show we're getting in there at 445 and by then we should already have two or three solid ideas that could make the show we should be rocking out to work with that from the night before
how do you curate those the personally
just the news basically but also Jason page out awesome at sending over personals and stuff the night before and so and a good idea might just be they sent over a personal but one of us has an extension on that or a way that we can stitch up the other co host and incorporate that maybe even into a benchmark so if they send over those personals as well, it's a mix of the news and personals and with the nature of our show, and maybe even something that's happened in my life that could be relevant on it. And then so I'm going in with those ideas for 45 to like 530 is like I'm setting up the studio but also by just getting today's news and seeing what can we get who can we get on from the news this morning and overnight and what's happening globally, I suppose
what setting up the studio is that like why wiping down the like, is this simple cleaning should have What is it?
I just do like I set up all the mic packs and might put the studio to and you
guys have stuff right? Yeah. So that's very unique. I don't know if there's that many other shows doing that.
Yeah, I think I don't is that for the videos?
It is yes. It's for like the guys run around a lot. So if they're out in the producers area or something, and they're not on mic, then at least we can grab the audio of something funny.
So there is that recording into it goes
into a logger somewhere on our network. So I'll probably only use it once a week. But I can grab anything from anytime on those right on those lapels.
Yeah, so I set those up, which is like simple as just checking batteries in putting on a desk but then putting the studio to air and logging everything in and just getting everything completely ready so that when the guys walk in, I came put a little light highlighter and pen on the desk, make it perfect. So then as soon as I walk in, they're just ready to go.
Right? Let's get some quick sad about Jai so PJ and I call Sandilands doesn't like he's doesn't like the staple being stapled on an angle I think it is already straight has to have it straight
yet Jason is just he's he likes is a highlighter and a pen every single day. And on the on the studio setup list, there's a dot point that says one square of bluetec on the top right corner of the left hand monitor and so that he can like slap piece of paper onto
any guy so you
have a checklist.
Yeah, well I did when I started now it's a five minute job. So I just go in there and do it and I don't have to think about it. But when I first started I would always miss something without fail even if I thought that I checked it over 30 times. We'd sit down ready for the show. And then I just hear from Jason Hey doll. You've just you've not done this one thing, but you know, I'm getting a bit better now. I've been there for a while.
How many emails are you sending a day
and I'm so lucky. So my producing role I work more on the info content and now I can heat it up slightly off my before
I go on But my,
my part of producing is I work on story arcs, and I work with the IPS and like creative content within the show, Jane side of stuff, she does creative content as well. But she sends emails, so she's like sending the emails to the celeb guests. And she's in touch with managers and stuff like that. What I'm doing though every night is about, like, I'd say probably 30 text messages and maybe seven phone calls, because I have to prep our like VIP listeners for what's coming up that week. And if we want their help with anything, like we won't even necessarily get them on, but just keeping that relationship with them because we've got about 200 and that's like a big part of my job is being like tomorrow, we're talking about this. Can you ever think if you've got any stories, and then, you know, I can send out there's been times like 50 text messages, and I'll get three responses and then I have to prep those three people but then other times 20 text messages and 10 responses. So that's like a big part of my day as well as just getting in touch with them and making sure that they were Ready to go.
There's a element of removing emotion from being a producer. I feel like I remember having to, like when you're doing your own show. It's no producer, you're literally calling some ground and it's fucking 630 I me like why can you help me? Yeah. And I just, I think about that now. I feel it makes me feel gross. Thinking of disturbing someone nearly hours,
I still feel really bad about that. So that's why I don't do it in the mornings, I get it all prepped the night before. And if they do last minute, they're like, Hey, can you get a VIP for this? Or can you see if someone can talk about this? It always is that heart drop moment where I'm like, I feel so bad. But I have just had to get used to getting rid of that third person guilt and just removing myself from it. Because like, when people call in and they sound loud in the background, we're like, Hey, can you pull over? If you pull off we can get you through on air. And usually they're on a highway or on the way to work and they go Yeah, I'll pull over. But like two in three times. I don't get to air and I have to shamefully be like, Hey, I'm so sorry. That You didn't make it through but I'll send you a random prize which is usually like a sticker or something but I do I feel really bad. Yeah.
I mean this is random random I think laid with the sticker because if I heard that I was getting a random prize and got a sticker I'd be
sticker and then if anything else comes it's it's always um what is it under promise over deliver sometimes there's like tickets for stuff with the best prize you've ever given someone?
Oh like ever of all time or just like random pricing cuz random pricing I don't know I just press a button and then my really comes out of like an actual basically. Yeah.
But that actually is the true essence of a random prize. Yeah. So
that is how like, prizes randomising
I do love or data, crazy packages.
There's a credit
to get people state house. You only have to get them my phone number. Yeah. No names. Nothing just does it all.
When I saw that we were on Jason page. I was like, do you guys do any filming as well?
What are you excited about for for the rest of 2020
um, for the rest of the sea, I guess because I've only been with Jason page, I felt like four months or so since I left announcing and stuff like that. I'm just excited to actually get good at my job. I feel like I'm okay at it. But I just want to be better and really cement myself in that team. That's the best team but I think you You do have to really place yourself in there and make yourself seem like someone who if they ever decided drop of the hat, which I can't imagine this at all, they've just resigned for the next two years, so that they will be there for the next 30 but if they like we're going to New Zealand in my head, I want them to think of me as someone who had that type with them. And so I guess that's what I'm looking forward to for the next year is just making myself that person and not being on air to be honest.
How do you do that?
How do I just be thing about the team is just availability 24 seven, so just being reliable. And just If you say yes to doing something actually doing it and not being scared to say, No, it's not going to work out. Because you think things You know how sometimes people ask you to do things and you hope it just goes away. It doesn't go away. So you've got to be like reliable in that white butt and just make content that makes the board as well in the morning and not just bringing shit stuff up every morning.
In some ways, it feels like these old school qualities that are getting lost. Do you think it's overstated younger generation, the younger generation willing to put in the work and things like that?
Yeah, I do. I guess like when I first started out, I was going in to heat when I seven brekkie for free every morning for six months and they didn't invite me to come back in I went in once. And I like got to know a mouse on that team really well, and he helped me sort of keep going in there. But I just insisted I need to be in there every day. And what I was doing was I was doing the Breakfast Show is sitting in and produce producing. I was like, you know, trying to help out. And then I was working a full day and then back at nighttime I was doing like my comedy stuff. And at one point I was sleeping in my car to make it back yet early enough in the morning because I lived an hour and a half away. So I'd be upside like working on like comedy and normal work that I had to get in. So when I people messaged me, they're like, hey, like, I really want to do that, like your job or do announcing because that's just what happens in radio. Everyone wants to like get a bit of advice from somebody does what they want to do. And I say are you probably have to work for free or you probably have to move 17 hours away from your family to Tamworth. That's not what people want to hear. And sometimes the response from people my age is like, oh, now Well, I've got a friend to work set hit Gold Coast and they know the boss at Sydney and so I'm going to get help that way instead and then you never hear from them again. So yeah, I think that it doesn't mean that it's all young people that's all people in radio my age by any means, but I I do I find that when people ask me for help and my answer as well, I sort of lie It was a sheet kicker for like a good year. And for Yeah, I was doing nothing really I was just showing up and begging for a job. I think that people go I don't want to do that part of it. I just want to skip to that next part that you got to go to but
not everyone's willing to move to a no random state or
no country town and honestly, it's like really hard but there's always people it works out for as well. Like I wouldn't say it didn't work out for me, because I've landed exactly where I want to be. But there's people who you know, they go out there and adjust for it only. For example, you go out to Shepperton and then you went up on the Newcastle brekkie show and you've got it made and you just have to take that risk. It might not work but it might also work really well for you.
Do you switch off yeah it's a
chunky milk as well.
So I might disadvantage probably isn't that I've heard a million times from a million awesome radio people. I never switch off the Brain is always on but I'm, I have to make a conscious effort to switch my content brain on its I'm not on 24 seven as she says she has a T shirt that says no days off
rockoff It doesn't mean that No.
Yeah, for me, I am not naturally a hard work at all every single day is a conscious effort to be like to work hard and be part of the show. And that's like, not a bad thing. But I am conscious of that. I keep my head like well, like, Don't let yourself slip because once I start, it's very easy for me to start sleeping seven hours a day off to work and just showing up by Sorry, I didn't do any prep last night.
So says that's why you need to
sleep man I
was downstairs happy for you to just have long work days in Atlanta legally sleepy, but yeah, long work days. Yeah. It's a big one.
To live far away.
No, like, half an hour on the bus.
You bossing every day
Any any any tips to Mr. Nye saves from a project one producer to another,
um, find a good show to work on. Now, so
my number one tip is like, you know, when you're in a producer position and you know that you've done something, or like you said an idea and then 20 minutes later somebody else on the team says it. Just be okay with keeping your mouth shut and letting it slide instead of being like, Oh, yeah, that was trying to steal all my like when they like, Oh, you should have done this earlier. And you know, you did it earlier. I just go okay, I should have done it earlier.
Are you the punching bag?
Yeah, basically. Just be okay with it and just let things slide.
How's it working with cam? Do you guys guy
Franco and I get along really well, because we go to geeks together. We're buddies. How do you find it working with makers
Yeah, yeah great I Am. I don't really need to work as closely with anyone on the team as some of like, obviously all the producers work really tight together. So
it sounds like you're doing
now admin. I'm just kind of there for the banter and I go go off and do my videos of it then go home.
Yeah, but you sit in the airlock with us so but yeah, exactly. I'll
talk shit with you.
Fancy headphones noise cancelling very fancy ones. What are they?
They're the Bose seven hundreds then you
rock the Q 35. Do you notice a little bit of you wired? Like you connected with the cable? No, I'm Bluetooth is the Bluetooth and bit annoying in regards to the latency. I used to edit with air pods. So you're just trying to
Yeah, so if you go to airports, airports, you'll see that like, the mounts are slightly out of sync. I think like
the programmes I had it with I use Adobe and it kind of makes up for it. Hit supposed to play in it. Wait a second just so it can catch up before it actually starts playing. That's good.
Yeah. Great. It seems like you guys have a great time.
Oh yeah, it's really good like you couldn't ask for a bit of time and that's why my everybody was stoked when we knew that the guys had signed on for another two years because it just means another two years to get like literally when they told the team in the studio everyone started chanting like three more years cuz it was it was about the team to let about the show. But also just the team gets to hang out more.
Did you get nervous because when I heard it in the podcast, I was like, wrecking page I must be fucking she's gonna ICN from New Zealand. I
thought that she was going to the farm to leave the day job Boy, that was like that seat. She's always been earthly. I was like, in those 10 seconds. I was saying in my head. She's always been connected with nature. It makes sense. You know, she belongs back there. I was trying to justify it. And then
well, Jay said it as well. Because he said you know its effects. It's been Yes, PJ. Yeah,
but yeah, Crystal said right. That about true.
It like we obviously all had a feeling that an announcement either way was coming when they were going to stay or not you know what was going to happen? Because the feature was always going to be uncertain that's just radio something's not signed. You don't know what's happening. But you know, I'm really relieved that I signed on and also working on that show. I was thinking the other day I know how it go producing another show. And loud I can't imagine it because it's so different the way we do it so different the team so differently. I don't know what I do.
I mean, just what does it What does that spot over there? Look? I mean, say 97
is on next. complaint replies who's
who's 97 g speak about us like this.
How it doesn't speak to anyone yet. Yeah. All of these time, I guess, side hustles and non existent. I remember being in when I was in radio. I tried to get shit off the ground and I was just fucking exhausted. Like, it's a side hustle. really annoying when you?
Well yeah. And I used to
hear that all the time all that I used to do stand up comedy and for a while I was like making these videos and they were going really well but like, you just run out of steam, I guess. And for some people, it's like, that creative brain is this bottomless pit of beautiful ideas, but I feel like I've almost got a limit of like 15 a day like 15 ideas and I want all 15 of those to go to the show. Imagine if one morning I came in as I I've gotten ideas I've had a really bad prep night. But then I log on to my Facebook and I've uploaded a video on there and I've got a new podcast episode may not shocking
happened to me at SEO when I was I remember I got pulled aside because I was posting the best content to my personal social accounts on Instagram. But like you know how like Byron got smashed in the face with a cake and Jules is laughing It's like that would have been great for the financials, Instagram that I put on mine right Like, when when the social media person came to me, I was like, they lost the plot, but if I can get it says, Yeah, but I was obviously a little bit delusional. Yeah,
I mean, you getting paid to do the job. They need your focus. It makes total sense. Yeah. But I think the point is, there isn't much time. Yeah. When you work in a show at a Melbourne, you gotta
like I do to, like classes awake, like go for an hour. And then maybe on the weekend, I've got two hours where I'm not free. But we talk so often on the show that I've got to say, hey, you're not going to hear from me for the next two hours because I know that if I don't say anything by the end of it, people will start to worry
like, who facilitates those combos? Is it from Jason p. j? Is it from Alex?
We've got like,
it's, we've got one group chat with the producer teams outside Alex, myself, Jane, Jace and AJ. And that's like, we'll all facilitate those combos. It could be me, Jane, whoever We've got an idea we'll send it it anytime and then we've got a separate one with just page a separate one with just Jason so they yeah they're pretty much 24 seven combo some days I'll be more quiet but definitely over the weekends and at night time before so every day Yeah, you've got everything ready. Ready to go it's just um yeah it's just the nature of it but you like you wouldn't do the job if you didn't want to do it really would you wouldn't be like I'm gonna go produce on a Melbourne brekkie show but don't contact me after 5pm and I'm not gonna be around on the weekends I could get my saves
saves that means services always messaging me on the weekend. I feel like you could get right into a group message with just like constantly you don't like her messages idea? I did correct. So would probably just have to be personally I don't like them just when it especially organising shitler pisses me off. Double just especially like we're trying to organise some night going nightclubbing Let's not go there. Yeah, yeah, it wasn't all your favourite gym. Yeah, but one thing we want to start to do. Having comedians on easily want to do, like rove back in the day like, they would do, like a stand up bit or like,
a like a monologue.
Yeah. But not even the monologue when they have the comedian like you have a comedian on who will do a bit like, Yeah.
Pretty sure it's a monologue.
Well, it is a monologue, but you know how like, there's the late night monologue where it's like Jay Leno, they've got a cat. Yeah. Yeah. Could we wanted to I'd love to be able to test out a comedian doing a beat. How would you feel now that I know that you've done some stand up Would you be able to do like a little bit so we can see how it feels in the show.
Stand up since I started announcing really it's been a while. No, it's all quit. That's it would be awkward. I can do it.
comedy is that people say Can you do a joke it's not
i'm not saying a joke I'm not saying a joke I want you to a bit it's different to say like a
Seinfeld episode The train like
what did what did you What was your comedy about like what did you personal stories or
yet personal stories I was like just about being my sort of brand was just like I'm a young teen girl cuz I was like 18 and 17 at the time. Have you ever seen Becky Lucas to comedy? Do you know who she is? Yes, yeah, she's a really cool Ozzy comic I was very inspired by her style of commission.
Recently, cams giving a reaction and because of Camp do you think is a bad idea? I can tell
you for a person who doesn't identify as a comedian anymore. And the
thing is, I'm not that funny that so I've gone behind.
Stand up is a lot about context, like when you're gonna talk room with an audience and it's very hard to kind of tune into
Like, I'm not a comedian, you know, I hear
a lot about like comedians saying you can't just like, ask them to tell you a joke on the spot.
It's a real move.
I was gonna zoom out and get parents to stand up for it. We don't have to do that, should we all sit on the couch?
So we think it's a bad idea.
The only thing that I can recommend is that maybe you go to the shows of these comics that you love and secretly record some of it and play
it back. So you don't think that we could do comedy
night? I think it has to its context. It's, we finished the show. There's a bit there's a corner and they stand up. It's a different shot. It's then you walk in, it's not, hey, let's have a conversation about you know, your role as a producer now do a bit.
Maybe you need a vessel for their comedy. So it's not as simple as just being like, Hey, get up in the corner and do a bit of comedy. Maybe you need a thing that will
take you we could do some improv. I'm not an improv guy.
I'm pretty sure he's read the room also just really
curious about what he's like I've never seen this yeah Have you got video of it? And we're not playing the video No
not at all want to see the video?
Like a tiny we'll put it it can we put at the end of the show? Yeah, that'd be cool.
Yeah if you got on your phone like
Isn't that like you're saying you don't want people like you don't you don't feel comfortable doing a bit I feel like the pressure of playing comedy out from your phone. Whilst you watch people respond. Isn't that worth?
No, I guess people there laughed. I didn't need to.
Probably don't know what about cam was involved in
I'll try it. My noise coming from a place of these will not be good.
But I'm not saying this show. I mean, look, I think we said you set the same you give us all characters.
This is good. All right. I think I think make sure don't manage
my character. Yeah. Yeah, make sure favourite the character has to carry the bulk of it. Okay.
Because then it gives you a shot baby. yourself. We've been talking to the same
page. Yeah, that's right. Yeah. Okay, great. So, location, location, sort of like a comedy club comedy store. Oh,
okay, this is right. It's just gonna wear the audience.
Paris. You're the ticket sales person. Okay, Josh, you're the comedian. Tommy, you're a die hard fan of Joshua's and catch up. Absolutely. And can you You hate Joshua's comedy? Why am I here? And so no one has rocked up so parents you have to explain to Josh why no one has rocked up to his gate. And Tommy you're trying to support Josh. And then can you just dialogue
that's sitting the same
size more than the same. You've written the script. You made
a fan. No. Ticket sales. Got it. Okay.
Hey, Phoebe, how
have we gone?
We've sold a few tickets, but my concern is the weather. But it's raining a lot
Yep. it you know the walk from the tram stop.
I said, Yeah.
Why they knocking on the door? We're here to venue and the doors open. Come
right in to interrupt Joshua. Hi. Good to see ya.
Hello, James, isn't it? How do you I think you you're at the last six gigs. My bad.
I'm just selling tickets and I've noticed you've come here with your partner who doesn't seem very keen to be here.
Who's playing tonight?
Am I told you was Josh? To tell you mate? Sorry. Yeah,
that Josh, right.
Good to see ya.
If you don't know who's I know I'm just a ticket girl and I'm probably overstepping but if you don't know the act,
my you here I'm just here with my man. I didn't realise you were coming over Comedy Store. Adam, was it okay.
And so sorry I just speaking the baby. We've got some issues with the tramps at the trams running.
Yeah, no, no, no.
Running. So the walk from the stop the train would have come from is far too long. And so the tram full of your fans could not make it here. However, I have heard that comedy is best in Joy in an intimate experience. And so this is actually a good thing for you. Listen.
In my life, I've sold a lot of tickets.
I've seen a lot of shows. I think this makes sense for Andy to be here at the moment while I'm talking. You called me Andy. James is James hi doll. Let me tell you a few things about comedy. I've been doing comedy for over 25 years
all right dad. So funny you know like that George.
And why have you called me up?
Four minutes before the show. To tell me that there's no Tran
is actually on the
charts just being well actually might go
Nice you can always
use the same but if you're wondering why I didn't call you earlier yes because to transfer it just cancelled and it's actually really not not Steve
I think I'm sorry to say like no Nazi you know what is my job I think you need to find a new business
to work in because ticket sales off
this comedy cup and I'm just here trying to help mountain you anymore
yeah, I don't like the way he speaks to women.
that same was called cancer.
JOHN Yeah, yeah, it's your fucking daughter. Yeah. Insane. Here we go cancer what do we think was that worth the time?
Can I get him back that's one thing we know any feedback
I think it was starring role like you gave him the role of pocket
sorry crying scene in
it sometimes it's about being silent you know and allowing the stars to
back inside now Josh seemed like the star because he had the role of the comedian which is the star that I talked to he could have he could have could have elevated your star man.
The woman hater was the star of this know
the comedian being you know the the syllable the person up on stage. Two people are there to see him not using
the water. That's a very low status.
It would have been great if cam you sort of
you know Joe was more involved. Yeah, flying
Timing was great, though.
Yeah, it was. Thank you very much. Appreciate it.
Let's do improv together.
Yeah, I think that like I would love to do improv seriously
Me too, but only because I've got, like an illusion that if I did improv, I'd be really good at it. And then I'd go to New York and I'd go to UCB comedy and Amy Poehler would be like, write me a show, to write her show. And then Pete Davison would be like, I'm moving on from SNL, and that'd be like, come right on, but that's why I want to do improv. But it didn't happen for me.
Do you think the Jason page a team would all do improv? Oh, like I feel like it'd be
like the riffs should be great
tiny. Yeah, yeah. Tiny wants to do improv we've made go into a cool together.
But my my favourite bit that she's ever done was in the podcast. I was talking to you about this the other day cam, I was she kept asking this question. I was the the manager was story. Remember, it was about the baker Baker, the manager, it was the manager. And it was so obnoxious, but perfect. It's the Exactly what I love. She's,
she's very confident with it.
You know what's funny is that she gets nervous before she does that stuff, but then goes in and just rips it better than anyone else. And she's always gone to other people, you should do it. I can't do it, you should do it. Like we had this big stump set up to do with Roger Federer and Adam Scott. And they ended up like, they could obviously detect that we were about to do a stunt. They didn't come to us for our question, even though it was pre planned. And they just like, say later, but she was so nervous before. But every time she does something like that, she's so good at it. And oh, I just feel like a loser when we're on the podcast together. Cuz She's so funny. You should probably have
her Yeah, I think it'd be fun. She's so funny. I think Yeah, I'd love to like I just want to be part of your team. I asked Jace to start with like, we could all be why don't we all do something or do something together but I asked Jay so I wanted to start some sort of regular gym thing like going to the not well, he said no
veggie boy and I go to the same dance school. casual dance class where's the space just south of chapel straight next to purab markets. That's a while away but it's it's a great thing. Yeah, no, no really it's not really cold
if I can control the group if we can have the group organised. Oh sorry camera will you pass your time? Yeah.
What time is it just looking at these watch like another noxious Apple Watch where
a new Apple is
still getting used to being obnoxious.
Yeah. Who's, who's writing to?
That's my girlfriend. What she want. She is asking me about a shortcut in Premiere Pro.
I really she she knows the white man's
dirty little shortcut. Yeah. shift is a good one to turn into editing. I like the classic cut. Yeah, my preferred cut what was a shortcut she was asking about.
She was asking about how to the shortcut to scale and image Sky limit control.
Oh, that's good. So we'll just go to frame.
Yeah, no, no, it's just to bring up the the controls. She's got it set up differently to me. Yeah.
Okay. Cool media couple.
How long have you been to four years when she work? She's a freelancer. Okay. Yeah, she does graphic design and editing are great. We're looking at getting some graphic design stuff done. Great. Okay, it goes into Yeah, that'd be good. You're in a new relationship.
Yeah, I am. It's fresh. Got a fresh boyfriend. But he was my best friend for like five years. Before Actually, it was five years since we met was the day that we started dating.
And that's really I asked my girlfriend at the right time. We were best friends. I asked her out three times. She said no, every time
so did Ben. Yes. Just 19 Hey, but anyway, they said he doesn't listen to this stuff. But no, he like, Yeah, he sort of we approached it a few times. Like, oh, maybe we'll try it and every time I freaked out besides this time, so was like when we very first met in high school. We like tried to date a little bit. A few years later, tried to date for a little bit again, I was like you liked me too much Get away from me. And I was also like, were too young. Like we're best friends. No, no. And then, actually, last year, he started talking to somebody else. We looked into each other's Instagrams. Oh, geez, we have been since year 12. It was a bit like I bet that your Change Password first and so it's not like it's not racing. But last year, we logged in, he was getting all these messages from this other girl he was saying, and I just woke up one morning and I thought, I'm jealous, but it's too late. He's gonna get together with this girl. They'll be together forever. Anyway, they didn't end up working out and I didn't say anything at the time. But then I went home for holidays, Christmas holidays last year, and I thought, I'm a woman on a mission. I'm gonna get a smooch. See how it goes. And it went well.
And so that was an Adelaide Yeah, long distance.
Yeah, it's just not even really long distance because it's, it's an hour flight. And so we just do it every week and it's so cheap. So every week
well, that's good.
I'd say like two or three weeks. Ken's out of a mind we've seen each other last three weeks and I'm gonna see him this weekend you could drive halfway meet each other for
It's 50 bucks a flat sometime.
So you'd like you doing that good bit for the show. You can use a bit of
$3 not sure what it does, but I do pay it
for the car.
Yeah, go under your bed even that I think that's a good thing to do. I've never been a human that I haven't but I've never paid that I'm gonna start doing it. We should as a business.
Okay, that's sure it's on the
company for 23 bucks. I guess the satellite.
It's not it doesn't matter where you're going. It's about $3. Really? Right.
Yeah. Fight Fight.
Yeah. But yeah, it's not the distance you got. I think I just charge everyone the same
distance. Like if you're going to Los Angeles, you should pay way more like there's a lot more trees you have to play.
I've recently flown to LA. Okay.
Definitely looking into it. What is what's the cost? I don't know about this radar. It's Mike 12,
I think No, it's Yeah, it was on the author was to just
like, yeah, like $1 50 or something
to go to Sydney or Adelaide somewhere close. It's
not here can Paris It doesn't matter how far it is. You disagree,
but I just fly from Brisbane to Adelaide. That's for a flat. It's the same price as the one elephant.
Maybe they drink domestic? Yeah. Was this a hard one fee? sabs.
Yeah, I'm trying to find the actual cost. So yeah, I mean, I figured my but you can
buy rejoins. You can buy it with your partner, you know, sorry.
You're going into point next.
Yeah. Well, they were talking about it the other day. Yeah. I've flown out first class on a three it really to London. That was great. That was in Singapore Airlines. It was like legit buy used on my points for that. I haven't done anything worth it. You're sick. It was great. And so we had to take two flights as go Melbourne, to Singapore, Singapore, London. And Bray had food poisoning the like the night before during the night and then the first flight but first class is the best place to have food poisoning because they're like giving your medication and checking it was almost like you were faking your plane or something. Geez. Anyway, thanks for coming on the show.
I think we should do this right now there was so much fun as
you see well nx cam for being the support
support worker anytime. Thanks for the cheeseburger.
How do you feel about the chase bags actually their final verdict?
I feel less sick than I think I would eating them a dinner Yeah, yeah, this guy
eating the meat one I was like the meat one didn't actually give me my I think it was I should have eaten the meat one first because the meat obviously has a lower amount of time. That's all good. Yeah. Serves any word. Are you still working it out?
No. I have turned to my all my details.
Really? Yes. I'm checking out we had done Nikki Goldstein on the show. Who's a sexologist? Yeah, you had to look up porn stuff and he had it up within 10 seconds. And now you've tried to find some Jetstar return flight from Sydney to Melbourne can be offset for less than $2. Okay,
side note, I think my next job is going to be a sexologist, really it's what I tell everyone
If my radio life doesn't work out and yeah, I'm gonna start studying just while I'm doing radio just in case cuz you know, friends go side hustle my side job. Not side hustle it say that word. But yeah, like I'm that's gonna be my next thing if I don't have a long lovely career in radio,
which is never guaranteed. What do you think it is about sexology that you like,
um, I? I don't know. I guess I'm obviously passionate about sexual education and stuff like that, but I'm just I don't know I just feel like it I seem like the type who would be it would care about that stuff. I don't know. It's maybe it's not obvious but podcast I ever listened to. I'm like sweet Yeah, it was a podcast called guys we fucked and it was a podcast where they spoke to different people about their first sexual experiences and how they learned about sex and relationships and stuff like that and I got really into it and I still am really into it. But I guess years and years of listening to that and having my mind opened up to the different experiences of people in the world has made me think it's something that matters, but um, you know, that's just a pipe dream. I might be maybe 10 years not worried about that. That's gradually
you could do some online courses while you're
the course really is psychology you get a Masters in like human sexuality. So it's like, you know, tonight yeah, side project to that you sort of have to work away. I don't have the time for it now. Yeah.
