It's the daily Talk Show Episode 633. I've thought and welcome to the studio buddy. Just having me and thanks for writing the email that we've all got the same f it's on.
We're working backstage when I say DC. Yeah, yeah, yeah, we look like we're not even. We're just tech people. We're just like, most places they can't see us but we can see them not having good tech people tell me
Sorry, you're not getting into this to be honest. You can get anyway with a lanyard. That is a fact. Well, I feel like polo shirts also, like if you're wearing a polo shirt that also gives you credibility. That's true. I know it's this sounds like you know, an urban myth when you say might have a mate but I do know they're not gonna throw them under the bus but I know they turn up to big day out. They just had a lanyard that they made themselves and an empty guitar case and then walk the walk through the back fence a big IKEA getting them good. What about you over
The Comedy Fest in Melbourne Can you get it like can comedians somehow weasel their way in in other shows already? Everyone's paying you it's pretty disgusting because you will have your pass so that does get you into a show but if it's sold out obviously said well no there's no room for it and I have through the look yeah but
surely say the money Mikey. Can you just why are you allowed to even go in and stand like, Can I just stand at the door? Or I guess some venues fire risk? True. Yeah, that's exactly right. There is fires because you know, they at any festival, they just jam you into rooms that shouldn't exist anyway. You're not the best at like, local people. No, you shouldn't be in here. If this is structurally not saying.
strike me as though we need to give them something. Yeah. So did you ever have you ever done stand up in a venue that was smoking like as in people would smoke in the venue? Yeah. Are you now disappointing.
But I'm just curious, maybe you, maybe you've performed in Romania,
or outdoor venues or I'm like indoor like any, anything that sort of could potentially be problematic? No, because you used to mean pubs used to smoke all the time. When did that stop? When did that that was because I remember people doing jokes about it. It was, you know, it's this week you do jokes about poop paper and pause it rip the roof off. Right. So that's so many bad jokes about it. But I remember when it when it got stopped. That would have been mid 2000s, mid to late ish, thousands that they just said no more smoking in pubs and we all went, what was that good or bad for comedy? What was good because you weren't probably for your health. Yeah, it was bad for everyone because then you learn what people actually smelled like. That was the dance. Oh, the cloud smelt. I mean, it was it. There was a period of time I remember that. Remember the transition? It was sweaty alcohol.
Yeah, but then it went to the
it's like a kid's place. Yes. fats and pose everywhere. Yeah, this is what bourbon does rain so I just never knew this disgusting comedians smoke on stage. Was that a thing? Yeah, that's a thing. Still a thing be cool. Not anything Dave Chappelle still Smash. But then you're just happy to say Dave Chappelle. So you don't give a crap. But the venues are definitely non smoking venues that he's smoking. But yeah, on his Netflix special that, you know, he's, you know, on a big stage he was smoking in the Netflix special is that Yeah, he was typing in one. I, geez, I love this. Because JJ told me we unfortunately never work together in NA, commercial radio. We could we cross paths in the same business. Yeah. But JJ became a paid paychecks I think we're on.
So that's why we had such reports. It was, it was just cigarettes. It was. We just got off a packet as I said, enjoy. But JJ used to be around and I forgotten about this. That
You have so much knowledge in some areas and in absolute nothing others.
Your knowledge is like if it's a roof, there's only a support in one corner. It's very fragile. It's like a it's about to fall. I've
enjoyed so much the thing the blind spots in your eyes, he gets in so much trouble because otherwise been your show meetings for me.
But I still love it. I'll be like, let him talk. Did you work on this show? No.
Can you just lay there throwing stuff around? Yeah. And that was because fan tools just didn't have time for it. It's like, I feel like Sam Kevin's main job was like, performance managing me. And so anyway, I would go into
you were doing my Mamma mia today with Mr. xiana. And that would just let you know. I think women's issues. Yeah.
Yeah. And so it was like before we knew what it was goes and you would you would let me in and just like, it'd be like Josh, what do you think?
Great, I think it was because you only had like half a producer or something.
And it was a great producer. But then like, wait, we just
have a producer as and she was only putting half a time. No, they resource down the half of their time. So yeah, that's what I was saying. No, Zoe's not a producer 40s you're treading on thin ground. Hey, JJ. No, but it was such a strange anomaly that show because I get it. They wanted to get mom's listing because it was between three and four memory so there would be moms in the cars picking up kids, but then they and they wanted to jump on the back of Mamma mia the website, but then they had the old school commission right i think of like one girl one God put them together, but a guy was gonna do some stuff. But then you're running from MMA, which is a great website, but it talks some really heavy handed Yes. So they're like, you know, like that like talking about autonomic like
six workers in developing countries and how we how young girls are getting groomed. We're going to talk about and I'm a comedian like Joe
just done something fun.
guy plays Can we just not talk about the serious issue on commercial radio? Yeah, we had we had a lot of fun. Actually, I remember a specific time where Jules was asking me to do something. I said, Matt, I don't have time. He said, You just spent three hours with Dave.
Because we had fun. Yeah. And then that show turned into
the the evening show. Did that turn into another show you did you move from that show to another show? Come with you. I wanted him to I was always impressed somehow, like 15 jewels would go overseas to London or something. And they're like, yeah, Josh is coming with this. I'm like,
well, it was hard armour. It was, um, I was on a different flight to them, which was weird.
Everyone was going on one flight and I was on the other one. And I also brought my they were like, they didn't have cameras. I'm like, Hey, guys. Oh,
I bought like four GoPros I'm ready. And so they let me but actually when I was quitting To be honest, it's not when you shouldn't have been on the trip. And now you've been put on a budget airline.
And Jules actually used his points to get you on that flight now.
Imagine he would.
He was the extra 20 kilogrammes.
jumped on it. That's why I got a slim
get on the flood. But when I quit, do you remember when I was quitting radio? I was like, I decided on a day and I was like, behind the radio station pacing. Yes. And you rocked up in your mini you were doing like you were going home or whatever. And I waved you down on me a motivational speech. You would I don't recognise you Well, why not the first person to be walking that block.
This block that block this guy what am I done with my last? Like, I don't want to cast aspersions on the people behind this but you know
ACI there, they got the two radio stations, they got Fox FM and they got triple and below them. And then behind it, there is commission flat, as you know, so I thought you're gonna say the best performing radio station out of the mall, which is called radio underneath.
luck was brought upstairs now, we'd prefer to my cat mode. If you're not that's like the number one digital radio station in Australia. They're in the same chats or the same system ranking system as well. So I'm ready. Is that right? Well, I don't guess it was. There's something going on here. Yeah. So I think the from a survey point of view, they look at the digital stuff. And because Kohl's, Kohl's worked out that it was cheaper for them from a licencing perspective to have their own digital radio station than it was to pay the PPC ca app licences per store. So they just play their own radio station but if you have a look
Nice to say that it was always a funny thing in shepparton would hear the calls radio going in my Matt and I were like, yes, someone from regional radio is gonna you know he was a joke that you're gonna be on the calls right? Yeah. next minute there was a girl who worked regional radio that was on calls right? Yeah. always catch up to the big leg. Well we thought it was a step dammit. Yeah, as we know now it's a step up you finding anything greater than Shepperton. That's true. I definitely had gone self serve on the radio as well. That's incredible.
What So what was the space? What did you tell him? Do you remember a day? I just remember you saying like I had when I was in November in Queens, that dude over in Queensland, Brisbane, Brisbane. Yeah. Which is Queensland. Thank you. Very good. Specific regional city caps. It looked like I was going to the state now. I just remember you just said, Yeah, might have done this before you should go out and do it. Just I know you don't have another job. That doesn't matter. And so you're the one that
pushed me and so after that conversation, I went upstairs, typed in resignation letter template, filled it out, printed it out and gave it to Dave Cameron and a
half an hour after speaking to Thorne Oh, Bree, I spoke to Bray on the phone bracer don't do it. Like I'm waiting until I get a job before I do it. And then it's the one I just gave me the confidence. And then he was my sponsor.
was still on the content meetings.
On my red car get paid. So that's what I was told. Oh, no. 13 1060 Yeah. Do you need a cape cap if you can't afford one? Yeah. No, I did say to you, because you were at that age. Well, I would have been 22. Yeah. That's quite worthy. Yeah, no, you just know anything at 22. Yeah, that's exactly that's exactly what you do. Because you just go We'll go see stuff, go do things go answer that question. Because otherwise he's, you're still there. You're still there. And somehow
You're in marketing. And you're and you have a good redundancy package by now, turning into OBS, and you're putting the signs out the sandwich board, guys, all right.
If you have no responsibility, that's the age. Yes, you'd be able to do it. That's exactly right. It was a good decision. Did you travel when you're young? Yeah. 22 year old? Yep. I'm trying to think I because I grew up in Shillong. I worked as a graphic designer up here in Thornbury and used to draw that every day that's like an hour and a half. That's a lot of code right? Yeah. To feel though Embree tonight yeah, it was a bit so you went from job long. That's I'm trying to work out Yeah. Drive every day. It's ridiculous. It's ridiculous. And then to see I could save money so I can go backpacking, and I went for two years or something. I should that's a good thing. Yeah, it was a UK so much fun. Let me guess. Yeah, yeah. Funny. Has anyone done it before? Does anyone know so? How long did you bite? Let me guess you base yourself in the UK then flew out to other places or no, I base myself in Dublin. So I'm in close but yes,
I worked in the Greek islands for like a summer. Good. What did you do there? picked up a lot of diseases. Was Nick j innopolis. frequenting making off at that point or did you say me? Yeah, yes. That's that's what I used to do just I had a whole new thing that just went dead let that
the king of making
he's he's known as the King of McNaught. Yeah. And so so what did you learn? Well is two years away? Yeah. Would you learn about yourself?
When people say I went to fall myself, I just found out I had
a drinking problem.
What was your drink of choice? What do you drink when you're on the Greek islands because I've only just miss out of getting into drinking ethos. pathos is like the baby. Really. There's that and there was another Bee Gees been so long. Yeah.
I mean, it was it was anything I could get my hands on. It was amazing how little you could live off. Like we were I was earning eight euros a day. My rent was six. I think I've made
And then I just need the guys around. So I'd have one gear off today, which is like, yeah, give us a year. And of course you do. Yeah. Yeah, so it's just made and chips rolled into pidor perfect. Eight that that's your one meal and maybe some cornflakes and just drink the rest of the day. And I did that for four months straight. So what I your eyes? I feel like at that point, like, what's the point? Like, what do we you that pour that you didn't have the like, did you need to work to have the cash or is it just sort of giving you purpose? Yeah, no, I was just working to it's a great because if you think about it, you go to school, and then I'm like, Yes, then you go to TAFE, uni, whatever. And it is great. But it also gives you towards so what are you doing as a job? So you do get to about 20
jobs on how to work and you're working your job, your job, you're working in purpose, things you need to do things but then you're starting to go not you don't all the time.
You just go out and do things just earn money so you can go live and then it gave me Oh yeah, you can do that as well. And so what was the actual job?
Call a commodity at some Greek word which means that they kind of like a fisherman or something like that. You go down to the port or the tourist turn up from the ship from the cruise and you go Where do you want to stay? place for you? And I had initially a work doing that. Try and get people in a purple pig. That was the camp. That was its name. The pants not yesterday, the island was it. EOS Eos. It's a horrendous, I look back at it. Now when I say horrendous It was so good for its day. But if you're over 23 you would think it's disgusting, but I was 2021 it was disgusting. This is the best. You're like the guys at the airport that try to pretend but then not you know, just like hey, Dan, yeah, you want to know? Yeah, totally. I would be the guy like I didn't have anything else to sell but when you're going to a developing country, and they're like transport transport, you and drugs you want ladies like it just I just didn't have the last bit I was just like, I'll get you in here get you in here and they liked English speakers, especially when the Aussies came through. They like to nosy, obviously, friendly face or whatever. And then I worked in a bar
Just getting people into a bar, because in grace, it's the opposite of here. You don't have bouncers. You have people come, please come, please come if you want to glass people, that's cool. So I'm just spending money because I just, they only work over a summer so they want all their money over the summer. So for the next nine months, the great guys don't have to worry. I made a bunch of dudes who are in our mid 30s to late 30s, like all kind of like American sounding accents, or some European with American thrown in there. It's like that international school accent that people develop. But it was all a bit sad. Like I thought, look at this life. They got so amazing, like just on the boat taking people around the Greek islands, then you realise that that is their full time thing and they've probably done it since I was 22 and haven't been able to get out. And they locked in that lifestyle. I agree because it's of a certain age. This one you said I want to pack it in. I'm like, Yeah, 22 is when you do pack it in and do whatever you want to do. But you're right. You get to guys remember on the Greek islands drinking with those guys, and it always after about three B's they just like, Well yeah, like we're really good mates. No, we're not
It's good to hang out with you but I'm not your best mate because I didn't have best mates so they could discover things are kind of troubling me right now. They're living in this weird fantasy world. You seem all intolerant dude. Like, I'm really happy. I'm sorry. I don't think you are. This is good for a period of time but then you have to go back and live a real life. We were talking to lemo the other day and he was saying that he had about I think it was 56 standard drinks a week because he worked out he divided up the 50 Yeah, which is excessive that's a lot
seven bottles or something then you work back from there. Yeah, the way Yeah, they could 56
a bottle of wanna die. Is that what he said? That's what he said. He's Yeah, he said I think it was key.
give up you drove his losses
ever get anyway. Yeah, I mean, yeah, I guess if you had if you had a bottle before bed. You woke up
You'd be under a bottle of wine. But then in the morning, yeah, what time is 9pm? Finish the bottle?
Wake up at seven. So if you if you ate a strong meal, a big meal with some cheapies after Saturday, something dessert they have to eat. You have to wait. I reckon there's a high chance of blowing over here. I drove through a booze bus stupid when I was like 20. So you're not meant to drink at all. I've really gotten into body language. And as you said, This bonuses
yourself stupidly. So I drank from 12 o'clock. It was grand final day, and I had huge lunch snacks and then I had dinner and then drove. So I was like 12 to six. Yeah, six beers across that time with like three meals like I may try eight more than I needed to. Yeah, but then I went through a boost by senior mentor below zero
I blow zero somehow, because I was on my page you don't have any alcohol in the system. So I don't know. I was like, there's six over six standard drinks at six probably, you know, eight standard drinks, nine and then I blue zero, which I don't recommend trying Well that's because they're trying to find the main on though for everyone because you've got like, you know, body weight size, your ability to consume it and I process it I'm a weapon if that's what you say. I don't wanna say
just come in and see the massive erection
a full job. Oh, yeah. Oh
940 Now, this gets me out. 40 How's that feel?
oxy love it. I actually don't have it. Like, I like getting older. But I have had certain things certain cliche things we like, I'm really talking. Well, there's it's hard. Yeah, we're all fine. You got two kids now as well as
Yeah, that's got to play into it. So he
was tired. Maybe I need to do the lemo diet.
Seven bottles of water and then he goes, Hey, Kalka home. If lame O is the benchmark, to be honest, that's what he drinks now. And he doesn't have a problem. Yeah. Well, what were you drinking sort of when you did have a problem? It's
not a problem. Now, it wasn't a problem. We just that was the mindset of record ever drank was on the Greek island because it happened every day. Like I think and that was for four months, right? I never throughout the rest of my life. Have I drank? Like I was your classic. I would have been a teetotaler pretty much throughout the week and still get the same and they don't drink on weekends. And that's a lot less now but I used to just put
on like a Friday night Oh, yeah, that's easy. What do you do on Friday night? Well, I don't know. I mean, I we're talking about turning back on this when you say coins I know it's a breeze when you're
just giving you my medicine saying how it feels does it feel that feels right does it feel like when you go to pet it to your
Trust me, it's good semantics are important.
So it's Friday is Friday weekend. We Yeah. Hundred percent Saturday and Sundays weekend. I would say Friday Friday, not Saturday weekend. That's crazy. Is that actually a fact? That's right. Yeah. It's it's affecting here in my gut. And it feels right to everyone's got. And so on a Friday night or a Saturday night I say officially Sunday's the start of the week.
This has been a big controversy within the team. I say Sunday Tommy sir. Starting the week on Sunday hundred percent. Our base camp
management system Hey, this is just something gonna throw without judgement. Did you got religious?
I didn't because I'm a little bit to the Yeah, well tell me was my mom because my mom was she would always pick up on like if I said things like, I was making a film once an insert instead of saying it Virtus Minh I said advertisement. And so that film was really slows the flow
Life when you pick up on everything. Yeah.
I just like to know, I just want to know the right answer. Do you like the right things? Like to other roles to be right? Yeah, I think are you worried about being wrong? Are you worried about people saying that was nothing wrong with the conversation? I understand where it's not. It's not a necessary like, if I'm with strangers. I've started catching myself and like, actually, you know, what, what do I have to gain from this? Because I like that about you in your house at the office. Well, that being good, I just got thrown in there. And sit back and just enjoy the explosion or something. Yeah, if you hear that something's It was like the other day, when we had a guy. We're talking about our internet service provider, which we actually like. And our mate was talking about scams and the guy who had scams now internet service provider, and he said, No, they're a scam. And I had a moment of like, No, do I correct him say, no, they're actually very good service. I decided I'm like, you know what, I don't need to
He had a dog
it's not not a good reason. No, it's just a fair enough. Fair enough you're stuck to your guns because he had kind of dogs on leash dogs on leads will bring and I went on a walk. We've got this new app called Old trails. It tells you the good walks around wherever you are and we were in That's right. Yeah, it's, it's actually very love this. And so if you have a look like we were in office seat over the over the weekend, and so we completed two hikes. So we did the red Hill Rail Trail, and we did the Michela and kings folds, so Okay, but anyway,
this one the red Hill Rail Trail, dogs on late, they have to be on late. There was a there was a couple of dogs that went on leads, you've got a greyhound duchy.
Well, I was just talking to you boys and I talk on stage now about risky grey hands and I'm afraid for people who have rescued grey hairs and not fans.
dogs. What do you think about the dogs on leash?
You know what this speaks to me or can tell me it's an affluent area red Hill, which means people make phone calls. You know, it's always welfare. It's like, I want to talk to a local Councilman. Yes, that's exactly right. So Rottweiler or Steffi or one of those dogs I believe does get into doclets and it should have been all late and then because they so rich and they probably know the Councilman things get done with that. What do you think that the because I'm a triple zero guy like I, I call triple zero a lot to the better wanna
become No sir become the 131 triple four guy.
You don't want three one, triple four. Isn't it for the somewhere in between? Yeah, if it's not an emergency, but the funny thing is, both times I've called 131 triple four. They've said, Yeah, no, we deem that to be an emergency putting you through to triple 00. That's good lace. You didn't call Jazeera. That's how
they was really well. So is this the start of the week or is it not?
So is it up
With Bodhi My son is three and it was a pack that is our there's no dogs no dogs allowed off the lead. So some packs they're allowed some packs and not this is a strictly dog on the lead pack and I was speaking to a woman that I saw that her daughter was in
the what is it mother's group with Bodhi so there's a nice connection there between the kids I call it mother's group anymore yeah
yeah you brought actually is that because why pasta sauce now What now? I think I've done I do like parent like I call it. I still have to there was a I which is the
the most woke thing? Yeah, well, that's the whole thing. It's so funny. The dads have just gone out.
To be honest, thank you what parents
Anyway, and this woman, this old lady comes up and starts just taking photos and both
node let's get these little deck out this girl's node foot yeah and so and the woman I'm talking to had a dog And so I didn't catch on to what was happening. The dog was off to lay this old lady's taking photos getting Bodie and this other girl this little girl who are nude in the photos to know all I hear is can you fuck off this lady that I'm with I this kids around the node stop taking photos she was trying to get a photo of evidence
for the dog that was off the lead and photos but then there's no kids there so I was like she like what Trump's what dog? Yeah, you can't take photos and files out wise dog. Well, you would work around the child you would like get to the other side between the dogs and the kids but it was just yeah, just full wide photos of all the action of the dog and nude kids. Yeah, that's not arkin. That's funny now it's a robust, isn't it with baby boomers, phone etiquette. They're just a bit like, Well, you know, I like it.
They just tight yeah remember mobile their iPad let you know when mobile phones first turned up Jojo. He gave me a Nokia 3310 and I remember having it like sitting on the table like yours is now and my mom still lives at home and mom was like, get off the table. Like it's dinner Hi. Yeah, don't answer that thing. Like she would get annoyed that you know like we all did when takes us to an app and people are just in it. Yeah, we don't bro. Well, you like Josh expects me to answer within two rings. He's gonna I didn't he answered on one ring when I first called this morning and he was like, I got it. That's what I do one right.
But then every since dancin, since I called afterwards you've just let it go too far with I'm sorry I brought it up a piece of work but but that I've noticed with boomers how now because they've finally gotten on to smartphones. They just it'll go off and they always have it on like, it's not on solid doesn't get it actually gets
really late. Yeah. And then I pick it up as soon as they hear that and they could you could be in the middle of a conversation. They just like that. That
smile band. He
He's had hearing aids for a very long time. And he's been he's of the age where the hearing aids were not the big things like they used to, but like you would hardly even tell that he's got something easy, right? But he didn't have them for a very long time. And he got it I think through surfing in really cold water over the years. That's the story he likes to tell. That's pretty rad. Yeah, it's awesome. But we used to, when we were young, sit in the back, like he'd be driving us into the city or something, go to some nightclub. And I'd be in the back. This is abuse.
So funny. But now, the version of that is he answers his phone on loud. So it's like speaker and he's got it up to his ear and he's walking around having a conversation on diseases. I'm pretty sure I'm pretty sure he does. Example volume to penetrate it. You can connect them up to you if you've got like, because of the whole hearing aid thing is getting so sophisticated that it's just like an air pod. So you can actually like Connect
all WiFi headpiece Bluetooth? Yeah. Lucky's making the drops.
Yeah, okay, we got a reserved yet. seriously seriously
bad souls drive thru workers to anywhere and what was the last time you had Mac is very long time ago. Very long time I kind of remember honestly because I think they think the burger joint has kind of killed that like if you want a burger
yeah now It hasn't been that long.
I think actually it was Friday, but as in three days ago, just because our cage got broken into no he did. He didn't ask for the reason why he had he just asked when you had it. Yeah, no, I just had it. Yeah, but why did you tell me the same body cuz Do you now because you're dead.
Is it heaps of macros or isn't it? I don't get it away for me, man. I know like my wife loves getting a cheeky chicken nuggets, chicken nuggets and I went down to the car that she dropped off to the to their steel here. Open it was that I told the boys I bet you I'm gonna check it right now I bet you she's had McDonald's and I check three bucks at McDonald's. Ella but Bodie, like it's never with me right? Sometimes he gets a few nuggets if I'm around, but Amy and Bodie got a 20 pack of nuggets and had it in bed. What's the What do you reckon the split is? Yeah. 30 aren't gonna he got 10 for sure. He's a little tan is that third? We should I didn't you don't say it as much he's toilet trained now. He's shitting on the toilet. Heck it's unbelievable happens. That's gonna wipe his bum. That's a neat concept like having to wipe another human's body. Ready does the thing where she'll scream out and then just head down? Yeah, and then he's like crack at it have added voting
holds my legs I think she may stay
holds my legs head between my and my you know junk and he's just leans forward and except that he wants it go what what did you just use a because of the because of all the stuff with the toilet paper content with coronavirus everyone saying how much just using water is like where it's at? I'm not rationing at the moment I'm going for golf yeah he using a lot of how much have you got it cuz I'm a boss we we do buy in bulk full stop my panic is that give a crap or whatever it is saved us but you got about 12 rolls and a hit Oh, we got a box full that has probably 40 rolls in it so we're only halfway through the box. It's a subscription. So you just I hope that they prioritising people on the subscription so we'll just get it sent more Did you say what's your address this Yeah, yeah. So it's, did you just say full stop by the way, full stop. Do you know when you sorry there are streams of consciousness. Now when you look at the flow
Josh, he says mine well I just feel like a full
time and then saying full stop. I feel like it's a very like 40 year old if you had a heckler in the crowd standard yet died. Look, I just want to pull you up on that one right they might it's it's brought not bought. I think it's good to get that shit, right?
No I know.
He said, Yeah, he's furious.
Your life is on the internet and spelling mistakes are plenty. I would say if you're looking at a pie graph. 5050 people know that and people are given thanks. You know, d h n x. Do you just go?
Oh, words, man. I was watching Pete Davidson. He's the guy from SNL. Hey, who's going out with Ariana Grande days just got a Netflix special that came out. Funny. Very funny. But he said this thing on stage. He's dead died in 911. I was in a firefight. He's not with her anymore. Did you say that? He was with it. Yeah.
They finished period again.
Anyway, so he said a joke about some guy who has an eyepatch. He said he's like a porn star like it. Some pirate was horrible. Yeah, he looks like a pirate poles or something. That's right. Or whatever. He said to Oh, no, he's then he said, he's sorry about that, you know, he's he lost his eye in the war or whatever. He said that then he put in whatever, because he's like, I didn't actually know I just got told just before I came on stage, that he actually lost in the war. And then he was like, I'll say, Sorry, just to sort of give some context that I know. Yeah. But he didn't hundred percent know that it came from the wall. So we put him whatever, and then everyone jumped on him because he said, whatever. Like, you know, the war doesn't matter or, you know, something against the army. Miss. Well, he did it as a caveat. I mean, so you're trying. I mean, you kvp
Bernie next to me, tell me like Hey, come on us.
know. But I agree with you. It's sometimes you just like, I mean, you know, what was in my heart or what was fine. And case, okay in that respect, I mean, I get they're trying to be respectful or whatever and just go, Oh, well that happened. What about semantics with jokes like it being able to do the correct order or things like that? Have you ever had specific jobs are very hard to nail? Because if you don't get the exact Yeah, so but that's usually because there's more risk in the job or you need certain pauses and things like that.
Yeah, there's a couple of times that jump in mind, but I think it needs a bit of context and look at throw this and then just be massacred, lacerated on the internet. What about like, about how often you say, say we say you're on the gala on ABC? How long is that show or that sets been done for before you get it to something like that?
You know, was an interesting side note, JJ.
He gave me a challenge to drop something on the gallery and I actually did it Which one was it? A bunch of years back a couple years back because I just watched I was was it What was it? I talked about
there was a bit where
I spoke about people on the internet and I said it's weird actually because it kind of ties in with what we're saying this was just a setup to a joke because you said I want you to drop it was a pumpkins or carrots something like that. Yeah, just the word Yeah, he just said you got to drop that and use it okay. And in this lead up to a joke I said on the internet, you don't know who they are. You don't know if those people have an educated or someone who rides on public transport and thinks they're married to a pumpkin like because you don't not and I was so happy because I knew exactly where it was gonna slot in. And I came into work the next day with a shit eating grin on my face like male gender Challenge accepted. Full stop.
So I was really happy by that one. There was also the the outsourcing to Manila German
It was that night. That was my own night crushed. He told me a story and then I was laughs I was like one second that is mind story.
Can you um, can you tell like it? Do you remember what the story was? Yeah. I asked comedians to do. I've been told off asking jokes. But I do want to bring this up. Well, the answer I didn't really answer your question. Exactly. Tell me But sometimes, it can take early days, it would take sometimes like, you know, a month, if not years to get your set together for a gala because you were so nervous and so green, you want to get it exactly right. But now as you get on, it's probably a couple months you run it in, make sure it's flex spot on so that you get the bang for your buck for the four or five minutes on stage. But I do remember, we were chatting and you were talking about you were at a house party with money and nights. He's from Manila, Philippines. Philippines. Yeah. And then you were just talking about like a fight occurred. you'd you'd love to joke probably bad some semantics. Well, no, there was a guy who was drunk and I was looking
had him funny. I didn't know him. He said, Why are you looking at me? I say because you're acting like an idiot. Now sitting down, this was I was 21. I didn't drink but this guy was just being a bit of a wake up. And so I was sitting there. I wasn't expecting anything to come for. And then he comes over to me and starts like pushing me and punching me as I'm like sitting
on the chair. And so there was a guy Daniel, my mate who was a kickboxer, and he's from the Philippines. And I said, Daniel, Daniel, and he came over and started smashing into it. Yeah. And then you said that you said, I outsource it to the Philippines? Yeah. And
real good about that. I basically I just tell
that story, then I was just like, I think you came up with the answer. I think that you tied it all into the app. So that's a story.
I told the joke and then I actually Sorry, I told you the story and then you're like, I'm gonna
Use that and then you did the whole outsource to Manila thing. Yeah. And then I was like, why can't I say my my god into it Nothing has to be made and then it turned out to be really awesome bit it was like well that's gone on the go and then you've got non tossed yeah, that's pretty good. Is there a pumpkin bit?
It is just like a small detail that changes everything like it's like saying if it was a made, just should have shifted it slows it down a bit. How often do you drop out things? Just to enhance the joke or? Yeah, because if you always say like, did at the start of the bug he has to might have a mate everyone goes, Yeah, well, that sounds like it didn't happen. I just happen to make Canadians always happen to me the other day now, it didn't happen four years ago. Yeah, you can't say that. This happened in a place called 2012. And you've already checked it out. This is not happening. And it's funny because as Canadians Go on, you start to go Geez, we've just gotten so good at bullshitting where you start telling another comic a story and then he's like, I've heard this one. Like you've just you know, just work in gear and you don't even know it because
talking shit to everyone that just, I think there's I've watched this and I think fac was like the ones that do it really great. And the question fuck is that story true? Because I want it to be, but you never know. Right? And so but I think some comedians probably lean on stories a lot more. Sure. I mean, some of them are so amazing. You can't wait to get on stage and go what just happened here? Yeah, yeah, there's those there's those stories.
But yeah, some of them we just just lay them off. You're
annoying. I mean sometimes, like talking about you just talked about them. You know, the toilet training stuff. Like, some stuff happens with kids. We're like, This is hilarious. There's nothing you can do to it. Because it's already funny. Because Friday started. She's just my three year old. She starts referring to me as my name. Just be like, Dave, what are we up to?
Like, this is a business transaction. This is super weird. And I had exactly that she wanted to go in the toilet wasn't put on the toilet and I said Daddy, we
Back to let me know when you want me and I went back in at night and a house.
Dive come and watch my vagina.
I was like, Okay, I'm gonna go do that and I'm gonna talk about it on stage. That's great. It's a slight nightmare.
We haven't kids, man never brain if I was actually listening to a podcast, it was talking about the common narrative. Here we go.
I'm leaving them there.
Thanos just crossed his arms very much.
Now, I enjoy the opportunity of looking after my mates kids. Yeah. Being the fun like, Tommy's very good. Because Bodie, I could, like we can. Both he can jump off things. He's like a rough kid. So just like, you can raise a good age. Yeah, we don't like doing shit. Like.
We would get Bodie on a table, and then he would just fall backwards and I'd catch him. Just like really?
risky shift where if Bodie hurts himself, I know Tommy will be fine with it, you know, really depends. I mean, what's a few more bruises? He's got bruises. It was jumping. Yeah, he's an Janiak. And so he wants Yeah, it's awesome. Sorry, I have faith that you're gonna see. So and So the thing is that I also think that if I was a parent,
it would be that'd be too much like a project. Like, I feel like I would be like, okay, they're learning the languages. Like, I think that I would try and,
like, set them up with all these different things that that would end up being me being a bit fucked in the head. Oh, cuz Yeah. cuz I'd be like, Okay, well, they're one giant app.
Well, I think I'd be like, okay, let's, um, you know what, like, from the ages of one to 10 are they going to live with another family as well, like, you know, two days on two days off with another nother language and so that that would completely
fluent and so it makes sense how you talk about it that you just get tired and you can't be bothered you just yeah, hanging on to that to that degree. And so what do you even care about? Like with your kids throwing? Oh, what do you have any projects where you're like, Okay, like, let's try and dial in, like, I want them to be good at, you know, a sport or academia or times tables. Well, they elating you as well. You don't wanna be that dead. Like, there's so many in sports, there is so many documentaries about like, Andre Agassi is dead, or they're all they're all dead, just like, Who's gonna happen in your life, and they're either going to be champions or absolutely broken. Like, I'm not running that gauntlet. So you kind of work looking at you keep going. I think they'll like x. So let's go and do it. And so what does it look like at the moment with your oldest, same same as when he turned four? next year? He just didn't thrust into it yet. Yeah, Freddie turns four in September. Okay, but the threes bad nights too. I struggle with because I would just have tantrums all the time. And yeah,
Go This is killing me. And like Tony says he's so tight because you might have all these plans but you just okay look there's a great book by Louie ck we all know what Louie's done but some of the material if you can just take a photo
you don't want to just go Go man does Google know I want details what does he do?
One of the guys snippet from this I just described in detail, but it's true before you have kids you look at a parent losing and you just like that poor kid, but then after your parent, you say what did that kid do to that parent? To just like, within the projects in the early days, things like toilet training. Washing your teeth. Yeah, putting in your teeth brushing your teeth, right? Yeah. Is it just the most rudimentary things that you can find? I'm backing him in other words to Skype you this
machine brushing packet. My mate has a really good point. It sounds like using one of those is a gurney Oh like Shawshank Redemption when they go into the jail.
sounds easier than trying these buttons top. Let's go upstairs. Oh, I don't want to do it. We do it every night. We do it every now, my mate he's had a really good bit he's not a comic, it was just a really funny observation. We have a bit if he's of course he can shout out, but um, what's his name? Dr. Hunt, I could work for telsa looks better and more places. If you're doing shots. You're gonna mention that. Yeah, fair enough. I did actually have a moment where he doesn't like getting his name mentioned in public speech.
He wants to tell us what what department Yeah.
He does some great work there. I'm not sure what to Bob net because I call Gary's conversations easy. But he had a really good point where he said, when you're so tired with young kids, you should have you know, the five warning signs on the side.
That's Wait, how much like you've had, if you've had a full night's sleep, then its own grind. Yeah. If you've had like maybe one hour, and like one hour increments, it should be just red hot. That means it's on you as the person talking to them to be extremely polite.
Cuz I have every right to lose their mind. I was just thinking then
the people use the term you know, like you don't forget to brush your teeth. It's like a habit everyone has, at least should have. But then people climb the habit like they've developed them themselves it themselves. It's the parents that develop the fucking habit. Yes, she can never reference. I look at the habit of brushing the teeth I've formed, you don't form that your parents form it. Because it is a habit that starts young. And like you said every morning every night like that's what you drill into that. So we're talking about tiny habits in the book that Josh has for his book club at the moment. And yeah, the 21 days to make or break like if you saw right so many basic things that you do you like your parents did that and it took way more than 20
it's so true. What's happened you've stuck to that's positive
Yeah, there's a guy that I'm still owe money on my problem.
No good habits. I mean, exercise. I do remember cuz it's kind of ubiquitous now, isn't it? We all go right? Well, you gotta you gotta exercise you got to do that it will make you healthier. It'll do all that. Like, I don't want to sound like an old man but they would talk to people like, like I said, get called Hollywood with the other startups because you'd be on to and I'm like I'm coming for rando or on Hollywood.
Like if it was the strangest thing that you could do, because I just needed to get
as he's thrown.
What do you think?
Is money? Well, you're trying to be Mr. Hollywood. I'm watching a movie. Yeah.
So, so exercise is the thing that I'm a big guy. I mean, initially, it's vanity. When you're, I think a young man, you're like, Oh, I'm gonna get heaps of buff muscles, and then the chicks gonna love it. But that's
Unless you told me little and it's still yeah
it's not broken
but but yeah I do remember putting in place and that was really buckled down and you know this to me from when you have kids because you do just it's like oh my god my schedule is not mine
like you know other I can mention other podcasts on this game that competition are they
offering to the shots which one say them
oh there's there's one pro alienation
know Fitbit pod with Doritos singing been lame s cheddar the day talk about because they both lost is a perfect shout out by the way. Shout out because yes during the Beast Boy he's not the beast. So I felt bad about mentioning he's not Yeah, these guys are in the BS. They love promotion.
So they're probably got writing headlines right here.
Have we done what's the name Fitbit pod because it was a bit of a bit. They had they both had do. They're both sitting about half memory 120 530 kilogrammes each. They had to get to 100 in a certain period of time I can't remember was a couple of months or something six months or something. They had to lose 30 kilogrammes and keep it off. They had some bucks on it. Just quickly how many podcasts you can have started as a way that people thought you'll keep us accountable to losing weight? Yes, like it's in modern day thing, right? It's the modern day, accountability to episodes and still fat.
a bit odd. Also, as a side note, once we were talking about all this, I always find it really funny with because people will publicly shine themselves into health one and they'll take the before photo and go every week. I'm putting it up on Facebook. I want to show you what my progress is. And it's interesting that they say and I'm just bringing this up as a discussion because we'll get you shouldn't fat shaming so
Most people I know who have lost weight, shine themselves with losing weight. But then if someone does it outside of their own skull, they're like you are an evil person. Maybe this is I'm not saying pro I'm just saying a little bit of what's happening here is when people go Okay, I'm on now I am Oh, yeah, well, I've taken so many before photos yet to take me after. I just haven't gotten like I feel like now you have lost a lot of weight when I met you were well, yeah.
Actually, you actually went and helped me buy my first proper shoes.
Oh, so the thing was, I'm still back on the the assets, but I was worthy to care. And
so there was everything that he's at right now is
not there was I didn't have proper
life skills for jokes.
Do you remember that do you actually remember we went like
me Clarendon straight you got me to get some blue suede style shoes I still have them No I do remember this is this is back to my point where you would be this font of knowledge when it comes to like technology and apps and like he just showed us the hockey game. I don't have shows
because I didn't want to be in the meetings that's why we
wait to get into meat I will on era three that's way too much time so I would go for lunch and then jack Jay would be on the straight doing his usual
let's go to Seth Rogen market we'll get you some pain which is that so it was so much fun. I
know there's something good about being an employee and just saying I would like to spend three hours like I remember.
I take any notes.
When when the the radio shows ran, survey, break and jackpot
still had to come in to work. And I had heaps of work to do. And there was one day where jack and I went into a meeting room and spent the whole day trying to learn a memory game like how to remember a whole deck of cards. And I remember Michael Yves, that one of my bosses at the time who worked in digital Bay like Josh, you know, you've been in the meeting room with jack post all day, you know, doing no work and I said we were doing strategy. Like I just linked into just bullshitting bullshit I'm sure with the whole with the shoe thing if someone if DC had been like, Josh, what are you doing like with with you know, Thor? No, like you're not doing work. I'd be like, it's all for content, like everything. Remember, if there's ever a space that would accept you, you're saying I've got a blue sky meeting guys just popping things around the block. Oh, that sounds pretty great. I like everything was I remember accidentally pissing myself going to work because there was huge amounts of traffic. Normally that fly
That's a real negative. That was a whole break, I guess. But the difference is you are in a high pressure position because the back didn't stop with you on air whereas Josh is the guy behind the same I forgot about all of this. I know why you shouldn't have to
the Dyson I remember like the Dyson blade and using that to dry the my pants because I had to the shower had to go on.
I seriously like there was you went on the show.
It was a lot of commitment. Yeah, cuz you're coming in from Mike. nary wine or something. Yeah, it was like, go shop there on the weekend. There you are in south. Yeah, well for us it was a rapper. Really want to be rapper wasn't from
causing too much trouble. It wasn't a revenge hit.
No, seriously, suddenly went Oh, yeah. No, I used to drive but gangsta
He'd like shot in the head. I shaved my head. That dead Stein is in serious condition. bad condition. Wow. That's pretty
life threatening and he shot in the head tonight the guy got shot. I live in Blaine. And I get shot in the head a guy got shot I got shot. I got shot in the head kind of work
is the most brutal footage because I was like, someone said, Oh, no, my hyperbolic nature. My mom's onto Corona onto all these things. Yeah, it's usually because she watches the television news. On any news, it's the television news is seriously hyperbolic. Yes. It's called Um, there's been some shootings in Berlin hasn't it? And I was like, has it and I looked, there is footage of a guy who got shot into his car, two people got out, boom, boom, boom, boom, like you see the smoke of the guns and you see this flashes and he got shot in the head survived. But it was it is so embarrassing for these people. That should
him because they fucked it. Like I reckon I would have done a better job. I'm gonna live in a hitman. What's crazy though?
begin this day, like, one of the first times I've done it. So are you trying to make more content?
They actually got caught these dudes that were bar keys. Yeah, but what was the weirdest thing was the car that was used as the getaway car so the car that rolled up they jumped out of shop was a BMW one series that little coupe thing. Yeah, it had been stolen a year previous and not found. And so someone's keeping this car in a garage for a drop and waiting for to do something like this. That was the eerie thing. So if you get your car stolen, and I don't find it, like I totally would be used years later for a driver because I just saw this thing on Netflix. Aaron Hernandez story. Oh, have you seen the NFL player? Yes. Yeah, man that's, I remember hearing about Should we just give it away? If you haven't watched it? Have you ever watched any of it? I've watched all of it because I'm a huge NFL
fans and friends of mine said you gotta watch this. He's black. He's off his rocker. in two episodes in I googled the end. Yeah, well, I mean, it's all there because that's why it's not a spoiler because you go you could switch to a new city out there this guy was playing for the New England Patriots was on a $40 million contract and knocked some dudes off but knock those off two years before that. This one that got into the press, because this guy's got hates the screws, Lowe's, and that's what the doc over reveals all the things that's wrong with him. But how was the last guy one of these guys he was hanging out with it was, you know, gangster. And remember when they first had this guy on the witness stand and you're like, well, his face looks a little odd. And then hit like, and then it goes into this court case and torment this Aaron Hernandez documentary? Yeah, now that you're back from the load now like this is one of our first ever resets. Yeah, like this. And so it's a murder. Is that what happened? Are these guys NFL players got heaps of screws loose and even though he was on a $40 million contract, he was still shooting dude. He's like, not a guy from a rough neighbour.
I grew up in why was he shooting? Well, that's what the doctor you'll find out possibly because he gets hit in the head a lot but but the point is is poor luck so much shootings there was a guy in the witness stand whose face looked odd until they pointed out Yeah, he got shot at point blank range right between the eyes and survived Geez. And he did neither dice he's twice as much right?
There is what it did it go through the brain, surely not. outside. I mean, if we were on this dock topic, the guy have to use a shotgun, put in his mouth and pull the trigger because he was committing suicide and survived. He now has like a motivational speakers. So he was severely depressed and she was not going well for him. And then he does that, but then fully has a deformed face, obviously from a shotgun that he fucked up the shot. And now he talks in these like, talks about coming back from it and
Jace, did you think it would come in today
I mean he gets an interesting way of getting to that career.
some good really, really sick. I thought this is pretty dog like I was thinking about coronavirus and I was like for this I mean this podcast Ivy's very successful. I don't know if you know of that. It could be more successful. I'm not as from the word polished Yeah, just because we get a lace that was a two year deal, does it?
Yeah, we're gonna lace lace on this bus. Don't let the lace you know, mistake us for a really successful poker. No
matter if we got the coronavirus and not you but Josh and I yeah, and we just bunkered down here Mr. Nye sevens Got it? We've all got it. But but we've become the first daily talk show podcast currently it has the coronavirus so lets you hook imagine
that coronavirus yeah like mentioned if we became the
podcasts you were the ones we can survive this. We did. We reckon you'd listen just because you like fuck I want to listen to people who were which was the turnaround of ours and hear what it's like having it I mean okay I've been willfully backing away from it all because I'm like it's not a problem it's a problem in my life like if I get it that's the spirit we got to do. Yeah but what honestly what can I do other than wash my hands and just keep walking we can perform you say yeah um what's his name? Eric Eric Ben Russell Brand Russell Brand cancel these Perth show, because someone at another gig had coronavirus. Do you think that like it's a great excuse for procrastinators? Like there's been a lot of people saying I don't know if you get your Comedy Festival show sold at all. I mean, 14 days myself I've never watched the wire. I would sit there for like two hours. Yeah, I'm all for that like the idea of being self quarantined. That we were the business would go under that we have
to wait to find out. All like if the internet falls apart is not
Now we'll be fine. Two weeks you kidding me? Be right? Just send emails we can ask for some of the invoices up front and I look we still need the deposit I reckon the Patreon account would do pretty well. Yeah, can you support the boy Yeah, yeah that's true. Yeah it'd be like everyone sponsor child. So when will you think about I know you said when he when you get it, but
you're waiting until you get it. But when does it when does it enter your mind? But there seems to be so much Okay, so there's a couple things apply here. So we got that we got the current device right?
Is the first time
probably you know, because at least now feels global because obviously it is so I could I can't just be holding Sean because Bobby's comply with laws and stuff that just go Yeah, shut the gate. No one seemed to leave, do whatever. So there is that's a real fact. You're mad because I don't I wasn't old enough to really comprehend the whole size thing. As an older representative, what do you remember of size representative? Everything was in CPA college. Almost smoking. Yeah. But in all
See this dawned on me when I remembered coming xe backpacking coming back through Thailand. I got home and everyone went swine flu. I went, What? swine flu? And they're like the swine flu that's ripping through Asia. Like, did you know about it? Like, nip wasn't on the hook yet, I can tell you that much. And then I got home, and it came and went. And then I was like, I was less stressed closer to where the disease was, without the information of news, then any of you people were going blowing up this morning on ABC Radio, had swine flu. And he was saying that it's like, all the media's fault that he got swine flu. I know that the town survived, he had swine flu survived. And then another woman called up and said, Yeah, the one detail he left out was that there was a vaccine for swine flu. You could get shots for it. Whereas there's no vaccine at the moment. Corona isn't supposed to see this again. It's all the conjecture of everyone got 70% of people suppose that there's no symptoms. Oh, he's just a carrier. That's it. So you
Yeah 70% of us that's pretty good. We're just gonna go Oh, this is something so we could have it potentially but we wouldn't know. But then they also say like in most people under 50 they're like, you'd be fine. Yeah, you'll be fine. It'll be crook but I was just saying is is that combined with this was saying before there's TV news to like II or two on something. Yeah, they gotta get going. Do you watch much news? Now I kind of I go in and out because I willfully pull out just like, just isn't I don't need to be as high as your next comedy show willfully pulling it out. Yeah, I've got two kids.
But and then also combined with a schmuck who's running this joint, who completely backed out when the entire eastern seaboard was on fire, but now I was locked out of it. Look, I know what I'm doing. So he's getting Oh gosh, this is important is needles in strawberries.
You've also got that going on. That was just want to look like heroes rather than just doing the right thing, which is hey, this is a problem. We'll we'll look after it. Until then. Carry on. Have you spent much time on cruises.
Not but I'm a batter that they hit off really honestly the last time you see me go I feel like all this bad my flippin attitude to coronavirus on now if like poetic justice has any advice going on you don't have to mention the name of the Chris but so you're going on a cruise ship? Yep. How many people on board nowadays ones go to like 1000 1200 some of them and so what's the deal so this is for comedy? Yeah gonna do some comedy cruises and so what's the what's the what's like the the protocol Do you just
like how long does it go for I mainly want to know about the food stuff isn't like
you get on the easy these ones they run for like four days from Doctor doc.
You get up you do a couple of performances do performance one night last for like half an hour. If they given you any information about the coronavirus, no.
barrier, where are you going to? Well, these ones they just go out to they just go out to international
award as soon as they hit that, is it really? Yeah they just lock the wheel on and just do random international waters Really?
What do you then doing out there? Well then I can flick the casinos on legit legit wow and then I just got around you looking at what do you have it alright they don't bear the kind of weight gain once they do a bit of that game so you got When are you leaving? I'm trying to think a couple weeks and so is that what currency do they pay you? It's my way international sexual favours
you had a lot to drink bro so you're really gonna have to
wait so this is it I've never thought about this. So this is you save this shit on The Simpsons or whatever Brandon is awarded. Yeah, I think so. Did I have five boys are off fireworks on international waters. Yeah, yeah, marriage doesn't stand suit anymore. Like it doesn't hold up. Really not. That's a lot. That is an absolute lie, but I wish to go on those cruises.
All night long.
So what's so you're going to so when you are an international borders what what actually changes? Well the things are that because there is no tax, but it's a total Yes, Hokies Yes, you can do casinos because you don't need a licence anymore. Once you're on international waters, you don't need a licence for gambling. So you can just gamble
interesting. Yeah. Once you hit international waters I believe and yeah, there's been there's no how many how many of these cruises? Have you been on? I think
under half a dozen it's probably like four or five books you for them?
Well, these ones particularly run with the stand up group in Brisbane, but there's hates or the cruisers you can go on some guys gone like two week cruises, things like that, where they'll go to new mayor or something and they'll be on the cruise the whole time. But I think they would say new slightly batty. Like, I think it's like working the minds like they've learned you should only be on there for me. My mate first started working the minds back in the day. And I would honestly be like three weeks I think down you know, in a month. I think so.
Two weeks or three weeks, you know like I'd come out for a week off but just be like, I'm not right.
But everyone was getting paid so well though I don't want to rock the boat. This is too much what happens in regards to internet in the mind or no? on the ship should never be in a mine.
I would love to see you in a VOD day.
off these hands on stuff I get claustrophobic. Very sorry. Nice.
Fast Wi Fi on cruise ships. Yeah, no, it's not. Yeah, they do have they do have internet and stuff like Internet fast internet. I think it depends on the shipping, whatever. But yeah, mostly like it's not you're not gonna get credit or whatever like it. What's the you know how much internet you're going to pay when you're performing it for free. So it's a good live stream if you wanted to. Maybe. I don't know what your live stream you could do like
Maybe thought about doing sort of Instagram live streams taking questions from the audience. Now I haven't so this is why the workshop but this
What about podcasts? What about like
Oh really? What for you as in just in general that's what he's that's my
This is like way back at Radio you guys like that my payday well we offer content What do we got this how do you play? What are you thinking about at the moment like in terms of so you get your stand up obviously fucking bra matter Yeah, but then outside of that what do you What's your vibe? What do you what do you want to do? Again sexual five is pretty good.
Just touches me now um, oh yeah bits and pieces. It's it's just a rich tapestry. You know, there's a lot going on patchwork. I like Patrick No, really. Do you do a bit of that? No. But the lady that we start like
The Airbnb we stayed at I thought that was on her.
Say, do you believe because going back to the conversation about, you've got a book Have you or someone that you know that you reckon in 21 days you learn something. So there's a book Yeah, tiny habits, which very quickly. This was 97 before beforehand. We're trying to work out what club you'd be a part of. We've all got a club serves Tommy's got the adventure club. Josh has a book club, and I've got the life hack club. Oh, 20 you more sort of inclined to be a part of mass 97 why code 97
I got a 97 enter school. I
thought that would make you explain it that Jesus of knocks.
You did pause and there was a pause there. All right, where is it?
That's how many bodies I have a garage.
But no, that's very Yeah, you did pause you felt sheepish about it. 97. We just could snood
So life hack books and adventure adventure. Yeah. So you've lived the life you're reading about? Well, I'm actually you've learned from life 97 now, yours is the saddest part of this.
It's actually the one that's gone. Yeah, mine's probably got the most impact so far. And I'm also you know what this conversation is saying Google hunting. Now I've said years ago very, there's a great team with Robin Williams and Matt diamond because Matt Jones, obviously a genius. That's why he named in the movie in the movie. And he's a janitor at Harvard, but he can crack this algorithm. That sounds good. What is that movie called? goodwill haunting, somewhat? Classic. It's one of the classics goodwill, goodwill, goodwill hunting. It was what launched Matt Damon and Ben Affleck's curry. Okay, they wrote it. They wrote they wrote it, they wrote, that's it. It's fucking unbelievable that they write it at that young, but he grew up this character grew up in the car side of Boston, which is the worst part of Boston, right? So he's rough as all got. So wherever you
Grew up you can think about the roughest place. And this kid is a genius but it was never picked up through the school system because he obviously grew up in a rough area. And but he's obviously he's also gets into fights all the time. He's been in and out of jail because he was like, abused as a kid and he's a foster kid. It's all been a rough upbringing, and he rejects every psychologist he's ever had until he hits the the very affable Robin Williams. And Robin has a really good point with him when he said he was Robin sends him to a point where Robin flips his lid, and then the next day, they're made up and he goes, you know, what made me feel better about this. He said, everything you've learned is in books, everything you've learned, you don't know a damn thing. You only know it because you read it. And you guys have experienced loss. So you can experience life if you want or you can keep reading your books. Now. I'm paraphrasing. That was what Matt Damon. Robin Williams said Robert diamond and Mr. Madden is a genius guy. He's right. I've never lived a life with any rattle off.
Am I saying? You get out I got old trials. kilometres.
The adventure club you actually you actually have to read it. I won't stand by that.
You gotta get off, JJ. I wasn't gonna bring it up on today's episode, I gotta go to a house. You gotta go to the graveyard we feel about so there's two options.
I was talking to brace, she thinks the first option is to road. We'll see how you feel about it.
How do you feel about me? Are you inviting him on a tryst with you today? Not definitely not this time.
But how do you feel about me doing another club called the Explorers Club.
This is a guy that died in the first month of having the book club. He really didn't even read half of the book. I was the
Delta male. So he's the dumb matte diamond. Now I take back the whole goodwill hunting thing. So you're not even doing that. mapping. I'm facilitating these in the thing is your thing isn't at Yeah, so I listened to audible and stuff. The thing is, so
club isn't not a book club, what is it? Then you have to reckon you have to read you have to. You have to read the book that if
you only read half
the thing this is actually an article that talks about just owning the book is in some ways as good as reading the book now it's not
it's 100% having
this definitely science in which I can't go into the bit in regards to the adventure club. Tommy's throwing a lot of sort of flak at me. No, I'm just I'm just saying that I lobby's month it was a unorganised but we got there. We did a ride bike ride. It was great. We did an awesome why there was only It doesn't matter how many people there. We still did it. Why? on it? I'm not trying to spray. I'm not the guy saying I've had the most impact. I've done this. I've like now we just got a club and we're just that you want to come? Yeah.
business in question is so what I'm curious about. We had some feedback. What was someone saying? We had? Emma who's part of the book club? Yeah. So Emma said, I don't think Tommy should be banned from being a part of the book club. He can still read and also organise an adventure. Yeah, I didn't know where I was ever getting banned. Well, so I guess last week, God said that I didn't want you part of it because I felt like it was a distraction from your ability to do your own stuff. Say I was trying to help Josh by say, Maybe if I actually read the whole book, it'll inspire him to go on a beat this asshole like it's almost a bit of a nag like yeah, I've read the whole thing. Josh, it's halfway through the month I've actually read the book Have you read the book? And he like get fact I'm reading the book which I think is just sort of I don't like it because it's sort of questions my right Pauline.
And I feel like you do a good Pauline Hanson impersonation Have you done one before? Oh, my that was good guy. Got him the light noise
and so yeah, well
What I find what I find interesting is I think we need to rework all the club stuff. Because we have the Book Club, which is going really well. The adventure Club, which is going okay, life hack club. Nothing's happened.
The thing is, in all seriousness is trying to find the right
9070 vegan love Heck, I have karate. Nice. That's a good one. So, all trails like the app and stuff, everything that I've been doing. Look at the audio book that I've been listening to last.
bushcraft 101 a field guide to the art of wilderness survival. He's still he's Matt Damon in this 100%
and so, so I'm doing a lot in regards to exploring and adventuring
runs for 52 minutes, which is me we live in Melbourne. That's what that's half an hour trip. Well, my half an hour the other 51 Minute. 30 on to a 52 minutes. Okay, no, you're right. No, that's
right. The thing is
I think that we need to open up the possibilities in regards to the clubs. So things like all trials, because the reason like people couldn't get involved in adventure club because everyone was meeting at one spot. What about the idea of everyone within the adventure club, communicating each week saying this is the trial that I'm going to do in my local area and they take some photos and we all share it. Yeah, but that's Tommy's Kona. Yeah, nice.
to him. I said, you should do a zoom meeting about the book because there was gonna be no congregation of all the people in the book club until I threw in there.
But I organised it enough. And so we
But so we get into a club. Okay. I've said it's Tommy's territory. Eddie's Tommy's territory, unfortunately. Have you been to stay out of my club? Have you ever been into a in, in clubs in a in a club, I'm trying to think if I have ever been in a club at your events,
Talk about that anymore. I didn't know about that because the Bandidos at headquarters have moved from Brunswick. It was right next to Tony's GM. That's all gotta lift bro.
Yeah, bro. And
I love it and we they when the shooting happened No, I wasn't as easy. Yeah, it was talked to people at the gym. Yeah, they're all lovely. To be honest. I love God didn't do any cardio. Yeah, I do do a lot of cardio. I'm the only guy that works in cardio. The other people just lift like and it's incredible. I quite enjoy it. I quit. When the competition's coming on. I'm just like, this is incredible. It's like, yeah, it's like, I don't know, I just I'm not intimidated, but they're not gonna do anything they know. Like, you you run 10 metres and you ain't run like it's fine. So when you get into that zone, oh, there's no sort of authority over that. It's showing us a good 97 months so I saunas are great. They're just not a dirty it's not happening whatsoever. But only bring it up because the bad data is next. Oh, I have an it because I live in Brunswick unfulfilling all cliches there. We have a Vesper
Wat Vesper it's my partner's Nikki Steena where you get it serviced VISTA house. Oh yeah, just on Johnson and Johnson great guy, good dirt. And for my family impressed I know the guy's name who runs Vesper house that's quite good. Do you can give him a shout out? Dang I said yeah but you gotta say she had a shout out dang
was that what you want? Is that the shout out yeah did it well, but and then I also got a posted by Nick Nick. He bought me a two cylinder Honda post he bought it'll be careful the thing will get stolen dude. Yeah, I know you do for very high demand people just take them to the farm and which bathroom? Yeah, this but I only bring it up because I like to ride the things to dodi's and then be like, I don't want to be too close to the
guy says a legit blocky wall. You have a leather jacket. May Yeah, it's plenty. I'm from
Vegas vegan. I've got a tofu. vegan. No, I've never gone vegan. My next Oh
Ibis vegan and I'm impressed by it that they can give up cheese and egg to great eggs important. I'm actually about to invest in a sunbeam egg cooker.
Sunday cuz you need something to specifically cook it yeah so this is great so I used to have one that was an egg and the problem with the ad always a problem with these things. So it's no it's really good it's I can show it to you but no it's great it cooks it to perfection and they're about $49
so they go Sunbeam it's the ac 113 hundred I can we can we take bits only $5 when you will first be put back into the pantry and no longer you know I'm gonna use it I'm gonna start boiling every day. Things are
boiling. You get the tiny habit of boiling it every day. The thing about then it's the eating it every one I need to bring them that's the house to bring them. What are you attaching the habit to
Yeah, so the point is that with the tiny habits as you've got attached, so you say, after this, I'm going to do this. And so I'm going to say, after I get out of bed, I put the eggs on. That's good. That's good. Is it a habit though, that you get out of bed? Or is it just an action? Now that's a habit you can do. Now, this just doesn't feel like we're award worthy. Like you've done I've just created a habit of making breakfast.
Like we've all acquired that breakfast, that's I'm gonna put them in. So I was thinking as I've kind of gherkin, put the gherkin into like a
glass bowl. I'm gonna have two eggs and a girl can I take that and that's my lunch.
She just brought you lunch with you.
But I just don't know what you need to write a book to figure out how to bring lunch to somebody that you want as well. What do you normally have for lunch? Boy, and don't bring bro just be like, that's nothing I made a joke about what do you actually normally ain't just had a curiosity.
Leading up to here I want to Caroline's on Nicholson straight because I got my car washed. I'm doing wrong so you ate at the carwash? No Actually I I dropped off to the carwash and then when they cross the road to Caroline's the cafe and then just go with a grain bowl thing
he's your he's very healthy not healthy during the weight madness we did and then we like weekends which you can't is Friday. So you will see I standard drinks.
the way again
D bright it tea break your sort of healthy stuff is at like 3pm on a Friday like when do you sort of crack that? Because I try I'm trying to work out because brain I like you know what, let's just do one day, a week where we just get loose.
But we're trying to work out should be Friday or Saturday. Do you need to get a book to figure out how to get all the time? Yeah, this is helping you. It's great. BJ Fogg, I think
in the alien who is observing us and trying to figure out how we work
What are you doing today? instructions on? How to speed about that. So you thinking, the thinking is when do we choose the day, it's actually the breaking of the habit, which was the debauchery of a weekend. That's my biggest problem. You get in tune with just fucking doing over the weekend. The habit is actually currently, two and a half days. So from Friday onwards, you're just absolutely going mad. But then on Monday, if I know that I wake up, feet on the ground, and you've got to say, it's going to be a great day. That's the first thing that they suggest you do in the book. It's going to be a great day and that just sits off level positive real Matt Damon and then and then you go and you ball. But the thing is that so I'll boil the eggs for Friday, but Saturday, Sunday, I'm not because I'm doing whatever. My question though. We're getting distracted. When do you split this? You say weekends? It's whatever. Yeah. Is it Friday lunchtime. When does that start? Well, I think for me as well because I got to
Little kids at home and my partner Melissa cotton socks. She wants the kids day like Gwyneth Paltrow, like they're unbelievable. She does a very good job of doing that. And I enjoy it. They very well, there's always like, well, there's organic veggies and kimchi, and stuff like that. Sauerkraut and genuine No, there's good. There's good stuff for stomach health. I'm not even kidding. This. She makes kombucha. She makes probiotics need probiotics. Yeah, I think there's one else. kefir. Very good. 97 It's like somebody's another gut bacteria thing, but it fades off sugar. So you like grow it or whatever. And then you can hit it with like water or milk. It's somewhere between milk and yoghurt. Like, it's like that kind of consistency. And so the kids have that for good gut health. They'll have you know, like, legitimately, you know, they'll have sometimes for lunch like broccoli with some goat's cheese on it. And some like organic sweet potato with natural peanut butter and you're like this is incredible. But then I just said right from Friday afternoon, all tools down
Then they're eating not crap. But you know we're making it easy on ourselves if they have a bowl of chips at the pub up I because daddy's happens in Poland. So I'm kind of letting my guard down for the weekend. So Friday, so Saturday so Friday honestly it about because we pick him up from daycare so you know you'd be 430 or so I'm just like, dads having a relaxing it's one time for debt. Kids probably at red or white one red. Discuss all awkward sign is not healthy. But they're not so on the weekend. I'm just relaxing. You know what I mean? We're having bacon and eggs for breakfast and stuff like that. And just you know, domain you're having me in your lane Monday to Friday. Yeah, it's on a Monday to Friday. And so what do you have for breakfast on a Monday to Friday bit of porridge? porridge and fruit
where you porridge from?
Where is it like saturated or easy?
Easily sourced at breakfast. Do you put maple syrup and honey on the tail honey and it really is luck. I've never seen
realise this before, but I don't think you're from this planet.
I just like to know I love when it gets
specific like you're sending messages back to the mothership This is
at a certain time each night, so they were normal shoes that don't piece in their pants. Okay, so good.
What do you have for dinner?
I don't know, Tom. Yeah. In the morning, I just said, Yeah, that was a stupid question.
You're the alien. Yeah. You're just like, oh, the aliens working
I can say because the kids are young. And tell me do you have the same? Yeah, lucky. I've made a great I'm a cook. No, Chef. I'll just cook. If I want to. I like good food before. I can just I can just feed myself if I need to get fed. You know, to me, I'll do it.
That's what I'm trying to do. I'm trying to get like, what I've realised is there's actually a whole bit on page I think it's 16 of the book. There's a whole section on having a square of dark chocolate
in the morning
along with your breakfast I think you'll
just get you get breakfast doll then actually form a habit around eating something that separates the whole thing. So my progress so I reckon for me, I just need simplicity. So I'm like the eggs, good. gherkins. Good. I need to work.
But if you add something to be applied, something's gonna get knocked out. I'm gonna see you walking down the road
with no pants on and just be like, I got the chocolate on board, but I lost the other day. And now I'm not sure like you feel like you hit your quota. So what if you would if you were to, if I was to say, though, and I'm only going to have six ingredients, six different foods that I can have every week. Just to make it easy for
Maybe what do you think it should say? Hi. But surely you know what's good for you What's not and then all I know is that a stupid thing is based on you giving people the benefit. So BJ Fogg talks about this in the book. He's like
doctors all these people say, we we think that all you need is the information. I felt like they made it
like we think that if someone knows the information information is the thing that's going to get them to do it. And he's point is, we all know what to wait we all know all of these things, but we don't do it. So information isn't the thing that makes us do something that's a good point. And so what I need is I just need just having eggs I think that I'm gonna fail because it's not enough like I need some other things good. Eggs, gherkins, great mustard, as a as a as a condiment to carbs of some sort to get away. I've carb loaded for 30 years, between nine years
Yeah, like I just want to reduce the carbs a little bit, but I think like veggies like what are some easy like, do you do roasted vegetables? Rice? Rice? Yeah, chop them up just throw? Which Which one?
Is it feel token to realise
that one what veggies Do you normally put in?
It's like you've you're the fully grown version but the same intellectual level as my three year old.
Next, we're learning we're learning. So you have the the get some sweet potato on board get some? Yeah, that's my go to sweet potato. Good. Then what else is sweet carrots? I feel the strain
for you Josh because it's like not much of it. He's not even. He doesn't. He doesn't cook so there's like doesn't there's only stuff that before so I'm putting together a list I get carrots, sweet potatoes too easy once you do red pepper. caps get a cold
Because he goes red pepper candies from red and yellow pepper, fresh those in the oven broccoli happy like broccoli? What do you actually do? Go to Jason broccoli? What do you do? Well, that's for the kids. Sometimes we'll do like salmon. Like probably tonight I'll go get veggie baked salmon and then the veggies which will be what we just all ticked off just a simple, just make a decision based on a belief. It could be avvocato
in the oven, but what do you log in vegetables and fruit? Well, that's what I'm trying to discover. I just try them all and figure it out just to have a least and so would you just go to the supermarket and say I'm just gonna get how do you know what to get at the supermarket?
getting to a point where like, how do you know to drive on the right side of the road? Like Well, we know that like because there's a right and a wrong. But
anyway, Dave, we'll leave it there. Thank you so much for coming on. And just one other vegetable that you'd have another way so yeah.
I'm now trying to think I had to come to the other day which was I thought it was zucchini and I said 297 zucchini was fucking great. I put in my salad. He was like, he sure was zucchini and wasn't cucumber and I said Bray what was the thing? He said cucumber, so he was right. But cucumber. I love cucumber they go I could get a whole eight hulky combat no problem. Have you done combat Dave Thornton. Thank you for coming on the show, buddy. I'm so worried
I'm left with it. Yeah. Do you oil? yea or nay? Yeah, we're getting the wrap up from 97 oil.
Olive oil spray, you know, brush.
Come back on and we can maybe I'm gonna come back on just a piece of all
really dial this shit in. The things happened like things I told myself. I wasn't gonna tell anyone but things are happening.
I wasn't gonna mention all trials but things are happening.
