It's the daily Talk Show Episode 659 in for them Welcome back to the show big fella. Boy Hello everyone. Isn't this has a you in isolation? Is that what you're doing? Is that where you fit up? I use I just, I just love chilling out I love hanging out at home. And look, I'm not really completely isolated at the moment because I'm working. So I'm kind of out and about at the moment but I'm spending more time at home now than before. And you know, I've got my little I've joined the kind of 21st century or whatever century we're in these days at the microphones set up here. I just also I can join the daily talk show. I mean the link we go to what about you die twice a day. At a time night like clients, clients are sort of dried up so you know I might have something I'm going to look after that I'm going to because I come from commercial radio I'm going to there are going to be some pop up ads
They're going to come up throughout tonight's show. So in various times they will pop up advertisements for products and I believe in I won't go magic immediately. But it's throughout the show you'll just occasionally see a little bit of product placement that'll pop up and don't let it disturb your viewing or listening experience. Again, it's my
pleasure. I can imagine you're across you know, the breaking news and this week we had the the job keeper programme that's gonna be rolled out someone who I'm worried the story
you beautiful, sorry, going.
Ben, there's a group of people that I want to hope. I hope they get the job came a programme and that's the kids that are on the payroll With you around the neighbourhood. What's going on? They still got a job well, my guess was one of them's actually got a new job. And I won't say at what location cuz I might get in trouble with it.
You guys will love this Rob because it's only a record of you nodding on and I've just discovered a whole new rule one of the proudest things and if anyone has heard the episode I was on last time you guys were talking about the fact that I employ a lot of kids in my neighbourhood and one of the proudest things is when they go from being a an employee of mine to then working for another organisation, you know, out the brave workforce is a kid across the road. And I won't say his name just because I don't want to get anyone in any trouble. But he's now landed a job at a at a business. Let's call it a supermarket, a well known supermarket, like a one off. Yeah, it's not Yeah, I discovered when he landed the job. I was trying to hire him to do something for me. And he said, Look, I've now got a job up there owner so that's pretty good. How'd you get that? And I was talking to him about it. He goes, Yeah, now get 25% off. And I went, Oh, really? He goes, Yeah, I get all employees get 25% off. And I went Wow, that's that's 25% is a big discount. So I then got thinking okay, so Hang on a moment. What days do you work to
Doesn't Thursday so I could send you my shopping list. You can go and buy our groceries you get the 25% discount I said let's say we spent 200 bucks right? So that that's a $50 discount we could have it so you pocket $25 I say
and he was like so better to mom and dad I was like yeah sure I mean double check it with him from a legal point of view but that's that's a big saving 25% is a massive saving and if I can have the 25% discount with him then he pockets money for nothing but he's got to deliver obviously the groceries to our door. So that's a good dealer. I think it's like icing is the shopping the you know shopping centres are doing very well at the moment aren't they ever and no one really wants to go out at the moment how you boys coping? You seem pretty good. You seem like you're a you know, it's I suppose different industries have different pressures on them at a time like this. I'm finding more pressure on us and more interest in what I'm doing on radio than ever before because people are craving information and
Same with you guys. right because people are cooped up at home and so they're they're clicking on that podcast button more than they normally would. I mean they get it daily already, but now they get a twice a day. Are you working at the twice a day thing? I think I think it's easier for subs and I wouldn't have any responsibilities for TJ being a dad. I think it makes it a little bit hard. Oh, yeah, I got I got Bodie full time out at home by myself. So Oh, you're a full on daddy now are you? Yeah, yeah. Full time, dad. Come on now. Isn't it amazing dads get so much credit for doing the smallest things you know the stuff I'm doing all the time. It's like when when girls see dads running with a pram you know those guys who go for a jog and they pushing him and nigo see, they go. Oh, look at that. Isn't that guy just amazing. It's like, you know, moms do that every single day of the week. It's like oh, it's just expected but when dads do it, it's like come on someone buy this guy a gold trophy and a ribbon want to individually please go to the Ninja Warrior.
stuff in, in Melbourne that you just filmed? What was the difference with all the corona virus stuff that was happening? What sort of changes did they make?
Well, we had a few little complications with it. But I was amazing that we managed to get through because there were TV shows being cancelled all over the place. But the studio audience was the big thing they they essentially cancel the studio audience initially, with but they allowed family members and supporters. So if the if the ninjas were running and you knew them, you're allowed to come along. But as far as all of the members of the public who had booked their tickets or whatever, they decided to say no to all of those people. And then there was the kind of, you know, safe distancing stuff that came in. So for example, Rebecca Madden, and I up in the commentary box would usually be, you know, right next to each other, but they kind of separated us a little bit. She wasn't there for the first few shows because she'd been sitting next to Richard Wilkens on the set of the weekend. Today's show and Dickey had been in isolation for a long time former guest on the daily
Talk Show Richard Wilkins Hello mode if you're tuning in, so, yeah, Nikki's now out of isolation. He's had the all clear back miss the first few nights. And Shane Crawford joined us. So I don't know whether you guys I should I should get kroff on for you guys to do a get him on for a guest spot. How's that bike? I mean, I know he's, he's I know he's a massive, massive celebrity. He's a Melbourne celebrity in mid July and now in your friendship group officially. Yeah, I've climbed him of climbing. And I like the way he did that thing when he did he kind of rode around Australia or something like that for raising money. I know for breast cancer. I think it was many, many years ago. I remember watching all of that from a distance thinking this guy seems like a good guy. But yeah, he joined the cast of Australian Ninja Warrior as well this year at short notice because Rebecca was missing for the first few days and then we liked him so much. We just kept him around for the rest of the shoot. But yeah, I got to spend a bit of time with him. He's a really nice bloke interesting kind of background and, and I stole his line because when he won a Premiership
He got up on stage and, and famously screamed out, might have to back off the mic a little bit, but he kind of went. That's what I'm talking about. So, so I was like, ah, surely I've got a I've got to work that in like when someone gets up to the top of, you know, up to the top of the Warped Wall or some major highlight, I've got to steal. He's his catchphrase. So I did that several times and what the trick is you're doing in crucial moments, so you know that they're not going to be able to edit it out. And be people aren't going to think you just pinched Shane Croft slide but anyway, what about
more nosey? So Joey knows he's up on stage he says that's what I'm talking about. So another way to know he pinched it from crore for who started that but I'm using it now. It's my new That's crazy. Okay, you need to bring that back at least Did you get it in there? Actually, you probably don't know that. You got it in you probably got it in some way across the seas. Yeah, it's just it's just part of my everyday
being How have you been making sense of
All the information about coronavirus I especially like in terms of being a broadcast on your radio show and not wanting to spread misinformation. Well, what I've done I've you know, it's been really weird. I reckon the last three weeks. I've done three hours every day on one topic and I've never done that before in my life like just so you have a I'm trying to think of the last big story that dominated a whole show when the the mosque shootings happened in New Zealand. I remember that day and us realising Hang on a moment. This is this is awful what's going on here and it took over an entire show. But by the next day, half of the show is on new content. And you might be reflecting on what happened the day before in New Zealand. We've done three hours every day on coronavirus for three weeks straight. I've not covered one other story, because I don't want anyone tuning into my show and hearing anything other than the one topic The only topic that the whole world wants to talk about. No one's interested in anything else at the moment Apart from this, so I'm just doing the whole
Show on what I'm doing, I probably only take 5% of the calls out of, we've never ever received this amount of cold traffic before. So out of all of the calls that try and get on every day only 5% are getting through whereas usually it'd be more like 5050 and there's been a you get calls where people have might have a theory on on what's happened or, or they've heard something or they've read something on Facebook about, about how it started or how you might be able to fix it or, you know, so I'm just being really careful not to take any calls from anyone that we just can't verify. I'm not interviewing a lot of politicians so I just made a rule from the start. I was like, I do not want to hear politicians right now. I want to hear real experts and real people so I've never spoken to more professors in my life and and then it's just about okay real you know, I've got a mic Mitch Bailey who's a cameraman and he's been a cameraman on on shows like The voice and things like that for free his whole career and a really well respected bloke, the kind of cameraman who a lot of TV
hosts say when they've landed a gig. Hi, I'm Mitch Bailey what we want Meech, so he's Top of the Pops. Mitch has been in the queues at centerlink. And as he said to me on air this week, it was like maybe the only times I've been to send a link out a film accuse other people at St. Link, and I'm the guy standing in the queue. You know, that's how real it's been for me. You know, I've got I've got a guy who's working outside my window right now called Anthony Anthony's a driver and Anthony's. been driving people for Channel Nine for a long time. I met him through Dickey, so Dickey, well, you know Dickies going somewhere, he'll often Anthony will be picking up Dickey and so I met Anthony through Dickey and, and I use him if I'm going to the airport, right? So just as a way of going to and from or if I'm emceeing a charity thing. I tend to book Anthony. Anthony says to me the other day, he goes, my you're the only person I'm still driving around at the moment. It's only because I had to. I had to go to Melbourne for Ninja Warrior. He gets might almost feel like I'm just doing some painting. And I said, What do you mean he goes well like
On a work, I don't want to sit at home I'd rather be painting a fence and I was like, do you know how to paint a fancy as I go? Might you not gonna believe it? I need my fence painted. So I'm not joking outside my window right now. Anthony is painting my fence and then he goes make your front doors a bit scrappy. And I went okay right and then he's going to do the front door and then I just put the garage door there and you guys might you know that this doesn't have a code on it the garage door they don't so anyway, Anthony the driver who just literally walked past the window, as I'm talking about him is now Anthony the painter, so I've just gone right out it's all traced in work and you know what, I reckon that's what people can do at the moment. tro people work so if you need something done outside your house around your house, now's the time to go You know what, hire someone Now to do that job. Because it's all well and good to have the job keeper programme and have these wage subsidy things and they're all really good. But individually if you thinking how can I help at the moment, it's not necessarily going and standing on a street corner and handing out toilet paper.
For as nice as that is, look around your house, look around your office, look around your life and think, Okay, what are the things that I have been meaning to get done and that need to get done? Do it now hire someone to do it. Now there's a lot of people doing those jobs themselves at the moment because they cooped up at home and that's fine. But for people like me who've got absolutely no idea how to how to paint a fence, and not stuff it up, now's the time to pick up the phone and hire someone because people are desperate, desperate for work. On the political side of things, how do you feel because obviously, there's been a lot of memes and stuff around how the government's responded. A lot of people have said that they've been slow to respond like wisco saying, Hey, 500 people, but we're starting it on Monday. You know what, I've never seen anything like this before in their lives. None of us had it. Look, we like to be able to sit back and go and I've watched on Twitter people where it's almost like every hour they've got a new critique and some of them you know,
Every month from TV has to stand up comedians who all of a sudden think that they are the chief medical officers of the country and they can run the country better than the Prime Minister. I think sky mo missed the mark big time on the bushfires big time. And for a whole range of reasons. I think we all know where he went wrong there. But on this one I think he's been pretty good maybe on a few days a little bit slow act and they've been a few things where he could have gone a day earlier here or there. But you know what? I think all in all, we're being faster than other parts of the world. We are gifted by the by the body of water that surrounds us. I mean, let's not kid ourselves. It's being surrounded by water is the greatest gift that we've got in handling this thing. It makes it so much easier. But I think he's been pretty good. I think you know, I think he maybe you know, some people in New Zealand I had a guy in New Zealand Ryan bridge, who's a radio host in New Zealand. He called in live to my show last week to go What do you Ozzy's doing, you're so slow. Your Prime Minister forget sky mode, slow mo because in New Zealand, we've gone into lockdown. I'm kind of glad that I'm not in locked
At the moment on, you know, I know some people feel like we should have just gone straight into lockdown, but at the moment by by by putting everyone who's flying into the country into hotels because 70 to 80% of the cases in Australia have come in from overseas. So they all go into immediate quarantine in hotels at the moment. So that's going to slow it down, we've started to see a bit of a result there. I don't know if it doesn't come down too much further, maybe we do need to do lockdown, but
I think it'll, uh, pretty well, I think it's very easy to throw stones from the sidelines. And so I would have done that differently. But can you imagine there'd be times and I know that this is not a really brave thing to say. But I've thought to myself, there'd be times when you'd be thinking, get me out of here. If you're the Prime Minister, just be thinking, you know what, I don't want to do this. I didn't sign up for this. I want to wave the white flag. I know that's not the Australian thing to say. Or the manly thing to say. But there were times last week when I thought to myself, man if I was running the country
I'd be tempted to still lock myself in the office and go Hey, listen. Sorry, I can't do this. And it's I'm not the man for this job I I don't know what to do and I'm not perfect and I don't know exactly the right thing to do at exactly the right time. I mean, so is that for me becoming Prime Minister because 97 is already said he's not putting himself forward and so it's Tommy, boy, have we got confirmation that you're also not interested? Now I've Yeah, I've officially rolled myself out of the geek mode so you still ain't that we saying if Tommy Yeah, it's a it's a Bradbury sort of thing. You guys.
Can you imagine the decision if Josh was to the country? Often why'd
you block your speech writer mid speech that you're giving? It'd be like that that's wrong.
I wouldn't have a speech writer.
No, then imagine organised August imagine taking that on the national level and just say, Okay, we'll just shut down the country for August and everyone. Just get in
We're almost doing that now, aren't we? Now these this is organised March and April.
Been in terms of the economic shitstorm it's creating what are some of the you having people on that look into the future that are much smarter than all of us in a sense of numbers or might have changed everything as far as you know, you have a look at you have a look at what's happened with I mean, you guys have been way ahead of the curve, right? You've had this thing going for how long's the show been going now a year and a half utilities over two years? Yeah. So you know, you guys are obviously ahead of the curve, but everyone else is playing catch up, you know, and they'd be they'd be, you know, this thing I paid for last week because you know, the links we go to the still get on the daily talk show. So this is happening that wouldn't have been happening at it not been for this crisis. And you have a look at what's happening with zoom and you have a look at what's happening with house party and these kind of things. I find that really interesting the way the the business moves in the market moves but but he's the other thing, how many businesses after having all of their workers working from home
And working rather effectively from home, how many of them are going to be looking at their next bill coming in for a massive office space and thinking, you know, what, do we really need all this space? Do we really need the boardroom? Do we really need to be employing everyone to go between A and B and C and D? Or can we just do business like this from home, over the net, using the cameras using this kind of equipment that you guys have been using for over two years? And you say, look at the broadcast business, you know, there are some TV shows that have been filming their shows, with remote cameras for the first time instead of having seven cameraman in the studio.
I've got a lot of mates who a cameraman, and they're worried at the moment because they're thinking to themselves well, now they know they don't necessarily need us all there in that studio, and the robot to a reasonable job. And I just gonna stick with the robotic cameras so there'll be a lot of people who will never get their jobs back. their jobs will never come back, and it's going to be a
major shift for people to work out. What are you going to do? How are you going to survive? And if this is not going to be your job going forward, what is going to be your job going forward? I've always had the dream of one day being set up that the specific location is the not in Tasmania. I want to buy a bit of land on the nut have a cottage and have a fibre connection and do the show from the not
what do you think about doing your radio show? Forever from home? No, I don't know. I I can't do it from here. I can't do it from home because I've got three kids five and under. And it's just not gonna you know, there's enough You know, there's enough pressure on my wife at the moment, looking after three kids at home but then to have me doing a radio show from here as well, producer who'd have to be here as well to assist with the whole thing.
It's not it's not ideal for me, I still like going into the office. So I prefer that. You know, it's like putting
On the on the bird or the shoe that used to wearing or when I'm not in my studio, it takes a bit of adjustment. If need be you do it and you'd kind of make do and and I've done my show recently from three AWS in Melbourne because I've been there filming Ninja, but it's not the same I like being in the studio. And it just wouldn't work at home the amount of pressure that was put on Jodi having me during the show from here and and the kids when they know you're in the house, as you know, Tommy when they know that you're there, and they know they're not supposed to go in that room. It's like there's just a massive, you know, magnet in that room and they just want to come in and see what's going on. I'm quite surprised that none of come in so far and uninterrupted. But that's only because I've got Sophia who works with me out there. Running interference is kind of technically just a badge the way you need. And the fence painter is also crossed with a childcare worker now it's
it's backing up on that as well. Max will be around this weekend to water the lawn and also in people's skimmer box. As you boys know. They tell memory about 85% so
I would suggest that Bo and Kyle have to drop in at some point I'd say not this weekend, but by next weekend, it'll be up to about 93 94% so they'll have to drop in and do that. You don't want to go paint on either foxtail when it's down in the 60% because kids will turn up here and go, I do want me to clear the foxtail and I have a look and I go memory 60% again, come back. It's been
three hours a day consuming I think it's probably it's greater than just watching Telly instead of receiving the information. You're trying to process it and then deliver it back on air. How you actually escaping
this sort of thinking and doing anything, you know, I'm not no I'm not just gonna do a coronavirus, little green thing. It's amazing.
Yeah, I just I don't know. I think that when it's on, it's on at the moment it's on and the only thing that's going on in my world is this. I mean, I don't
I don't kind of obsess about it when I'm not in the office but I I'm thinking about
A lot because everywhere you go, it's the only thing anyone wants to talk about. I mean, really, I mean, maybe in Melbourne, you get that all the ifl is cancelled as well, because the NFL is just as big as the virus as far as people in Melbourne are concerned. But apart from that, I have just not had anyone say anything to me apart from coronavirus, and you know that look when people give you like when I went up to the cafe this morning, I went up there and people are like, Hi, I just kind of that look, you know, to say, we all we both know what's going on. We're not supposed to kind of stop and chat too much about at the moment. But there's this look that everyone's giving each other at the moment, this knowing look that we're all in this together. And I've just never experienced anything like it in my life. It's where we get worried about things that we don't know. And because we feel at the moment that the answers to everything are at our fingertips, and we can sort anything out in an instant. This one we cancel it out. We don't understand it. We don't get it. And that's scary.
When we don't understand something that makes us really frightened. What are you actually worried about? What do you go to at this time?
What do you mean what I go to? Yeah, like in regards to the worries, there's obviously lots of different elements is education. It's I mean, it's funny Jodi said early on, Jodi's mom's a nurse. So she's got that medical side of her brain. And she said early on when it first started, she was I said, This thing looks like a real worry, you know, this is when it first broke out in China. And Jodie was like, Yeah, she goes, it doesn't seem to kill too many kids though. And I went well, okay, sorry. Still sounds pretty serious to me. She's not on a theory. Just like you know, the main like, that was her first thought. Is this one of these viruses kill kids, you know, and there's so many viruses that that that's the first thing is like it gets it. It's going to kill that kid. Now. Some children have died from Corona virus, but not many. So it's a bit of a saving grace for for mums and dads out there, but yeah, you look you really do have to think about it. I stopped shaking
Hands really early on, because I I don't know when you think about it I mean it's built into us one of the first things I was taught to do as a kid was to shake hands and to look in someone's eyes The first thing that my my dad drilled into me as a young boy was how to do that. And same with me with with my kids you know, I'm big on you know, making sure that they they learn about shaking hands but when you think about it, it is such a unnecessary spread of germs even before coronavirus. I mean, if you're if you're an AFL captain, right, and you're you're out and about in Melbourne, can you imagine how many hands you shake? I mean, you would be shutting 500 hands a day and taking 500 selfies a day, right? Because you're you're famous AFL star, but but your whole livelihood depends on you being healthy, and making sure you're not going to get sick because you need to be there on Saturday. So are we really going to go back to the same levels of handshaking that we were doing before? I'm not convinced that we are I reckon there'll be a lot of people who forever
From now on, we'll go on and I'll find another way of whether it's bumping a fist or elbows or you know, even if you if you're really close to someone I'm a big hugger, and I'm looking forward to getting the hugging back. I can't wait. Let's bring back the hugs. I can't wait for that to happen. Not yet. Not yet. Not yet, yet. Well, not yet. But um, when you know, I don't know I'm probably more inclined to do that. Then Then shake hands with a lot of people when you just think I've become really conscious of
germs and all those types of things. And when you got kids, you think about it even pre coronavirus as you'd know Tommy I don't know whether it came from your other half or from you but it just gets drilled in you really early on that the moment is a secret around anyone who says to you, I like my brother or so are you were coming over with amazing Coco Coco it's got a little bit of a sniffle. But she's on my board. She's got what a sniffle No, no, no she's not gonna come up. We'll see you next one. Because you know that when that hits your household, it is world war three for the next
Three days sick kids that can't sleep that positive to the other ones. So as I as a parent you really become accustomed to, you know, putting up the guards putting up the borders and stopping any infection or illness coming into your house. So that's probably been the main thing on my mind at the moment, the kids. We've had a few cruise ships roll in to Melbourne, but it's, you know, it's not like Sydney Harbour, the class, the factory of that ship that roll night, and 1500 people got off. I heard yesterday that based on the incubation period, the people who got off it's almost two weeks ago, so like next week will be the 14 days which means that you'll probably start to see the cases pop up from the people who got off the boat. Like how did that happen? What have you been covering the crews going? You know, being really hard on it. One thing I've been doing like during the whole coronavirus thing I've been thinking to myself, I don't want to go hammering politicians over every mistake that they made. Because as I said before,
At the moment, they This is an hour by hour kind of prospect. But that cruise ship in Sydney, the Ruby princess cruise ship, you know, they've now got and this this will probably change by this afternoon or it might even by tomorrow, but we're up to six deaths just from that cruise ship. So there are six people dead 400 plus cases. And what happened is they had those sick people were on the Ruby princess cruise ship so it's contained at sea. They allow it to dock there are sick people on board. Then people leave that ship on foot. They get in cars, they get in trams, trains, planes. They go to the City of Sydney, the suburbs of Sydney regional New South Wales, Victoria, Queensland, South Australia, Western Australia, Tasmania, taking that killer virus right around Australia, all because some decade at New South Wales help when? Ah, yeah, let's let them get off the ship. Why would you let them get off that ship?
There are six people, David, there's 400 plus cases that 400 could end up being 800 1200 Who knows? It is absolutely unforgiveable and nobody's copped it, you know, like Gladys Barry Julian who's a premier of New South Wales. I don't think there's a politician in Australia who I've got more respect for them Gladys. And one of the things that Gladys is famous for is not throwing anyone under the bus but Gladys, you got to chuck someone on the bus on this one like there is something where to the families of those people who have been infected or who are dead. You need to be able to say to them look the decade who made that call is no longer in the position that that are in when they made that call. But at the moment, no one's paid the price. Shannon says that that's actually crazy. Not even taking the piss
Shannon, too soon.
That the idea of the the home culture world changing maybe
Think about my domain name, hug kiss handshake calm which I bought,
like last year, whether that's more relevant or read less relevant. What do you think will actually buy names? Have you bought? A few? A few?
Obviously, she hadn't been, um, what do you think are some of the things that
a prepper really Archie, I mean, you just let's just buy every domain name just in case it's gonna be relevant one day, but not off the grid I had. So off the grid.com I had, I bought that maybe five years ago, and I couldn't believe that it was available. And my heart was pounding like you get this sort of sensation when you buy domain names at that quality. direction.
was slightly hard but i
i straightaway when I when I bought it, I went to off the red.com
Make sure that it all gone through and there was another website on there and I was like What is going on? anyway? I checked my email I bought off the gerd.com
I'll be on help and I just
have a helper but there are some things I cannot help you with that I really can't I can't help you I need to work on my background he does not because you got you guys got the nice little bookshelves and plants and things like that so I'll have to work on that but I get something in the background you know, I can't just be just holding up sponsored content constantly.
The album out on water everyday hydration it's fantastic stuff to anyone watching at the moment and can also just get in the plug for the man bar boys do you like the bars when you you know you just need a little bit of a snack. But you don't want to, you know the main bar made by Adam McDougal and the team at man shake. Strongly recommend it I'll send I'll send a box to the the office in there.
Be careful send it to the payer box because that will just go straight to Josh about two that are out it is a George and I know who I would trust
in real estate this home I so I'm actually I'm one day into my diet so I'm doing that was an April Fool's gag no no no I had a beautiful I can't show you now but I I have been making baked eggs in the morning with heaps of veggies and just just trying to remove all the baked egg by okay yeah many of the eggs many of the odd boiled eggs when I started you know I tried to focus on health and all that kind of thing the eggs were a bit of a revelation for me to um you know boil up a whole heap of them and and when you when you just need something to get a couple of them a little bit of goat's cheese on a vida Wait, that's my counting, go to, like I need something. But I want to avoid I want to avoid hitting Uber Eats or you know getting something that I don't really need. But I need some energy to go with it. Yeah, a couple of by the way. It's a little bit of goat's cheese and
And some boiled eggs on top body good. Have you done any Telly recently have you been on the Today Show? I mean watch here because
I did it last Friday and I'm doing it tomorrow morning. But I'm doing it from here so I've just been getting the what I did is you know they see I got one of those things in my car like a suction cup thing that goes on the windscreen and and the fart goes in it so I just pulled that out of the car and I put it on my on the window here at home. And I just wet the mobile phone in there and go live via Skype so i'll be doing that tomorrow morning on today extra at 10am I think I'm doing so it's kind of nice not having to go into the studio and and you know going in and putting a jacket on whatever I just just do it from the living room. It's quite a relaxed vibe at the moment. I'm enjoying the opposite of Richard Wilkins. He couldn't wait to get back to maximum quality Telly. Well might. I mean he was 17 or 18 days stuck there and Dickies used to having company. He's not a man who's been left lonely for a lot of his life. So to be trapped at home for 17 years.
Writing dies on his own, I can understand why he went through bucket loads of gene. What a man is it? Is it true that he actually started using these tuples each day alternating?
Well, yeah, we'd have the corona related pool and then you pick the other one clear for other guests Surely, but
yeah, I really feel for MIT as well. It was a bit of a shock to be honest when, when it all happened. It's funny how you count things back and you go Okay, so, Richard Wilkins has got coronavirus, fitzy and wipha the radio hosts. They then went into isolation and went into quarantine and we're having tests done, because they had spent some time with him. And then I'm like, oh, Hang on a moment. I spoke to Wipro in the car park at work for about 20 minutes. What day was that? And then you start adding it up and then I realised I look at you know, I was I was close talking with Whippet for about 20 minutes in the car park because he was talking. Well, we were gossiping. So naturally when you kind of get outside the Leafs and we were kind of having a bit of a
got about a few things and, and so you know when you kind of lean in a little bit then I was thinking back he said with some clothes talking that was some leaning in, and Whipple was with Diggy and Dickies, got Corona viruses as Dickey given that the wind is whipping giving it to me. But thankfully, I thought, well, you don't want to go and get tested unnecessarily so that I'll just wait and see if we've got it. And we didn't have it. So I didn't bother going and getting the test done. But yeah, Paul Dickey, he's had a bit of a tough time at home but I'm guessing he'll be back on the Today show this week and he's been stinging to get back on there. What a senior managers and leaders in the companies that you work for, what are they saying about all this?
I think they are doing a bit of ask covering and I don't mean that in a in a negative way. I just think that early on, I know that my boss the radio station early on before, there was a lot of talk about people working from remote locations he was he was Wargaming Wargaming that for a long time to kind of think, okay, who's going to go from where and how are we going to sort this whole thing out and and separating people
And whatever and, and I suppose with businesses closing and their businesses shut right around the country, those businesses not necessarily going to be advertising because they've got nothing to advertise. So that impacts the amount of people who want to advertise on the radio or on the TV. But then again, there are businesses changing. So in businesses, so for example, there are, you know, food businesses in Sydney and Brisbane that I've got relationships with then, and all that automatically. They were really quick. And there's a guy called DTS, who runs the DTS group in Sydney and a guy Johnny Canberra who runs Canberra is in Brisbane, and they're, and they're both well known and in those respective cities. And so I would go in to be at the front of the curve in terms of going okay, again, barrows becomes gambiarra to go you know, click and collect and, and candies who would never have done food delivery in his life because he runs fine and restaurants all of a sudden, he's doing deliveries and pickups and so those businesses need to advertise their new methods. So I suppose there's some some revenue coming
In from the people who are changing their business wise, but to those businesses who just had to shut up completely? Well, why would you be advertising in the moment? So that presents a real challenge for the bosses that have gone into vain and radio. A common thought is like people having it's we've had it too easy. You know, the you think about a, when an economy is good people are spending money on shit that they don't really need. And so it's kind of popping that bubble. What do you think about, you know, the six pack coffees or seven bucks in Josh's case? When you get? Yeah, if you have Makkah in the place nearby chargebacks it cost me but in terms of when we come out the other side of this when people's main prerogative was to survive, we had this has to change our cultural system.
I think I think you're right, and look, there are going to be and this will be hard for people to cop at this point, because we're in the middle of such an awful thing. There are going to be some positives out of all this and you just look at
The way that that people appreciate more stepping outside and appreciating what's around us, you know, it has changed us. And even even people spending more time at home people you look at you look at the greater appreciation for teachers, that's happened because mums and dads have realised this is hard, hard work, teachers will end up being paid more, there'll be a greater love and appreciation for the role that they carry out. There will be a greater understanding of what's being taught to kids and what what really works with kids and what they respond to in a teaching environment by mom and dad. There'll be fewer parents who will be going, what are they what's going on at school? And what's his teacher teaching them and now they'll have a much greater love and understanding for the job that the teachers are doing. So that's just in teaching, but I think for all of us, I don't know I think you I think you value the people who you're with that little bit more. And also, can you imagine the next time you go to the pub, but you know, I'm not you know,
I'm not a massive, I'm not someone that goes to the pub, you know, two or three times a week, I might get to the pub once every fortnight, you know, every second Friday night, maybe I might go and I and I tend to only go for a couple of hours and then I'm and then I'm off home but I cannot wait to go to a pub, like I am stinging to go to a pub because someone stopped me from going to the apartment for a really good reason. So there'll be an appreciation thing that'll turn on there'll be a an attitude of gratitude that that we haven't seen before for things that previously we were just like oh yeah, that's a sunset that's a park that's a beach. Oh, no, not everyone gets that not everyone has that in a country we've got it here. And and maybe the other thing from a social point of view, are we going to be a bit more selective in who we hang out with? Are we going to still be chasing that big social group and and feeling like you know, when you get to the weekend you go god I've got to catch up with those people and we're going to haven't seen them in three weeks. Haven't seen them in four months. Haven't seen
Do we really need to be saying all those people all the time forever? Or are we going to be a little bit more focused on on the people that really matter to us in our in our closer social circles and family groups? Do you think that there will be a shift in how much sports people will be getting paid?
Big Tom might not gonna die that's not going to come back. That'll take years and years and years to come back. And you know, what people are doing at the moment? There are people at the moment straightaway strategizing, what sport Can I get on TV that doesn't involve a lot of competitors, and doesn't involve live audience. So I know for sure, and some of them have already been knocked back, but I've got a mate in Victoria, who straightaway was going okay, no AFL, no other major live sports. And so he was workshopping an idea and trying to get it through the health authorities there to say would you let us put this on because it's, you know, it's only going to involve two people and it's only know that no live audience and whatever. So there are people automatically
thinking okay, there's going to be this this massive gap as far as live sport is concerned. So there's going to be an appetite for it. So for example now that I think about it Ninja Warrior, it'll go off this year. As far as writings it'll, it'll climb higher this year as a result of this because when you want your Fix there's no AFL there's no NRL and all of a sudden you've got three weeks of people, sports people, athletes doing something on on camera, that people are going to watch that more so it just everything the ripple effects from it.
Just so far and wide, everything changed. Not everything's changed completely. But everything in our lives has changed by a degree, a big degree or a small degree. It depends on what are these. What about talent, you know, like celebs, movies, you're gonna think these networks are struggling. It's which seems crazy but you know, the big movie that
There's no there's no sort of premiere of bond in any room which he was meant to be. And so there's all these you think
people who are the entertainers are going to be affected, like in what you do as well. It couldn't have come at a worse time because I know I've got a couple of nights here in the comedy game and all of a sudden had, you know, had their stuff cancelled overnight. You know, I've got I've got a mate, who I think sold out. He shows for the first time, you know, before they even started, it sold out shows before but this time, it's sold out every single show. And he was like, I can't believe this. I finally reached a point where all my shows are sold out before the festivals have even started. And then the festivals are all cancelled. You know, so that's gonna be really hard. Comedians, how do you get back up and running? I mean, if you're Ricky Gervais, so you can just go live on on Instagram and millions of people will tune in and watch it and it's fantastic. I've loved watching that the way artists have performed from home and I've been doing on the radio. I've been doing Corona concert series every day, where I have artists like
And I've had a you know, I've run from guy Sebastian or Jessica our boy performing exclusively for our show from their homes and I get them to record them at their homes and then and then they send it to us and then I have a chat to them on the phone prior and then play their their stuff for everyone and I've been doing some some comedy bits as well where I've got people like Vince or Auntie who's a great comedian and a really entertaining bloke. He's been homeschooling his his kids so I got him on to kind of talk about that so you know, they're finding I'm trying to find my best ways of trying to you know, bring some of that into the radio show for starters and therefore leaning on my to a comedians and singers and, and things like that so that they work and still be used and the creative juices are still flowing and we can we can put it on our radio show. But you know to adapt or die and you've got to find ways I've been doing I've been doing lessons on my show every day. So at 325 every afternoon my show starts at three at 325 every afternoon I say. moms, dads, you homeschooling, you need a bit of a break, gather the kids around the radio, you're
Radio relief teacher, Mr. Fordham is about to take over for the next minute. And I just do i A fun fact of the day every day at 325, which is a chance for the kids together around the radio, I wait till they're all nice and solid and then I give them one fact like something like
apples float because they're 25% a year. And then I just play in and I move on. And the idea is that the kids go what well, how did that work? And then and then I say Look, don't ask me Don't ask me how it works just either try it try it at home do an experiment with mom and dad or any follow up questions to be asked her mom and dad because I can't answer your follow up question. So being mean that when when my post flight, they're 25% error? Is that what you're saying? I've just gone through that all the foods. There you go. Welcome to baby torture. So
I can give you another one. Okay, Tommy, let's say your orange right. If you've got an orange This was another one of our little fun little lessons. If you've got an orange that's appealed.
It'll sink. But an orange with the skin on will float. So does that mean if the ship is sinking I'm eating too much. It's
on Mr. 97 isn't it what I want to podcasting kind of etiquette? meta sheets we all should every day. Always try and get a little turn in there you know
I love what you guys are doing and I think myself the other day I don't know how I actually came across you on trying to work out how I first came across what you guys were doing. But I'll tell you what, it's been a life changing experience for me because I I listen to you every day or they might be maybe one day a week or two days a week where I don't but then I I tend to play catch up on on most of them. But it's been a it's been a really great thing for me to come across your, your podcast and and i i still don't know how that first happened, how it all kind of kicked off but
Um, I'm really really thrilled that you guys came into my orbit and i and i love the success you're having I looked at that, that self serving graph that you posted the other day, last month it's one of my favourite posts that I then link to organised August I think if you have a look at it, there's a mess mixed by just before September. So that's obviously when all that kicked off which was that was your ID Josh and even though Tommy she can find now have a look at all of that hard work. Sometimes you just got to ignore the critics and just keep punching on through. But have a look at the eyes and have a look at the interest in what you guys are doing just nailing Ben Emma made a gag on our YouTube best comment I reckon this has come into the week it was the only curve you don't want to flatten and that
it now as your little mic Gemma, what's going on with Gemma.
She's going well. We had her on the we had her on the show yesterday and she was giving us some
Really Gemma really wanted me to. She's good fun. You mentioned the jammer and been Fordham podcast. That'd be great podcast. I think we should funnelled through the daily talk show.
She's got great energy, amazing energy, and it just comes across in everything she does. So, yeah, she's another one where I'm like, I wouldn't have known her if not for you guys. And now I kind of, you know, pay a bit of attention to what Jim is doing. And, and Mr. 97, I'm intrigued by Mr. 97. And I love that thing on the show yesterday where something came up about it you guys were talking about, about how this is affecting relationships and people dating and you're up on it. It was just this great moment and I know you put it up on Instagram, the video where you were saying I you know, you just started kissing someone or you just slept with someone for the first time. And then the most uncomfortable reaction shot
where he starts thinking about six
went and picked it up started small and I was like yeah
the perfect other way as you're drinking and Chris Do you think because we've had
a lot of us just starting out that standard drinks per week no question it's definitely gone
Yeah, just I don't know. I don't know what it is I I've got a mate. He was a producer on on Ninja Warrior Joe my and Joe goes to me. Don't you reckon? Skye should be closing the bottle shops as well through all of this. I said no, may not. I don't get you reckon? Oh, what so it's okay. So what you you lock down the monkey bars, you know, let go on the monkey bars but you're still allowed to stock up your minibar and I went Oh, it's good line. I like the I like what you've done the Monkey Bar in the minibar. But Mike, are you freaking crazy? No. Why in the world? Are we going to shut the bottle shops that that's crazy. He's crazy. That's crazy. We need the bottle shops at the moment more than ever before. And I'm not I'm not saying
That is uh you know it kind of you know to talk about drinking as being something that that you know we need to put on the pedestal but let's face it people are self medicating at the moment and, and part of that for me has been drinking a little bit more tequila than I normally would and a little bit more red wine than I normally would. Can we get an official number for your weekly standard drinks? lemo came in at 48. And what do you
I reckon I'd be at the moment. At the moment I recognised the three glasses of wine a night,
and about six tequilas on a Friday night. So what's that? Three times 721 so it might be about hitting about 28. So Lima is just a complete grog dog.
your job at the pizza shop?
Well, my the pizza shop is not really operating the way it normally is at the moment. It's you're not allowed
To 18 So, you know, I lost my job with a pizza shop pizza shop essentially. So that hasn't been brilliant. But then again, I wasn't getting paid. So it's kind of worked out quite well.
Yeah, we just do we get access to that. I haven't applied for it, but Josh frydenberg on the phone.
So, yeah, it's um, they just doing pickup and home delivery at the moment. I really feel from you know, because the boys you met Carla that day, who runs the shop Giovanni's. I was up at Maggio's, which is his cafe this morning. And I went up there and and i'm not i'm not anything. I was speaking at a school here. But he said to me, I've got an account there, right? Because I worked out that there are people that have got accounts and I was like, I kind of like that so that you can just say you're not having to transact every day. They just put it on your account and once a month, they send you a bill. Anyway, when I was up there yesterday, picking up my coffee and picking my lunch on the white chair. He said oh my just say no, we're um, we're wrapping up the accounts. And I said, Oh, what do you mean?
You guys see as in you know, we're not gonna have people with accounts here anymore. And I went, Okay is a year you guys okay? Like I know people are doing a tough you know, it's just you know, we just don't want to have all those kind of outstanding amounts, you know? So I thought cheese that's, you know two things I mean sad because it's a it's just one of those kind of signs I don't know whether he's just done it because he's just trying to you know just rationalise things a little bit or whether he's a bit worried or he doesn't want you know if you've got 30 customers out there who aren't Who are you? 200 bucks Ah, there's a lot of money there that could be in the tool. So I went Yeah, might know I was gonna say this. Oh, hang on a minute. Could we switch it? Why don't I give you credit? Why don't I give you $1,000 credit and you can just bank the thousand dollars and then you just gradually just take the money away out of the thousand dollars and then when the thousand dollars runs out, you let me know and I'll put another thousand dollars in. So he turns to his brother Christian and goes Do you want to turn into credit Christian guys? Yep. So home I said I'm loving it.
thousand bucks in Demetrios and Giovanni maybe switch this whole thing around and people who are like me who are your loyal customers will start buying in Let's buy in and and pump the money up so um so yeah so he's just taking 1000 bucks out of my out of my account because you know between the they run the the bakery and the cafe and the pizza shop and when we're up there all the time so I'm you know, I don't know it'll last obviously a number of months, whatever but I just figured, you know I wanted to try and keep my account if it's gonna cost me 1000 bucks and I'll just go to, you know eat my way through the grand over the next three, four or five nights
you reckon that's how long it's gonna take Yeah. Oh no you're right i was i was blowing it out to make it sound like I wouldn't get
was thinking in my head that's a two month prospect I'll get through 500 a month. Well like at the moment. A lot of there's a lot of, you know, home delivery and a lot of pick picking up food
And all that kind of stuff going on at the moment. So yeah, look, I, I don't know. And as I told you last time, a lot of the kids who worked me in the street, they've got access to my account. So um, so I might have to tighten the, the eligibility test on that a little bit at the moment as well. Make sure I've been in the piece. Gemma watts has just arrived. He's watching the live stream if you have any words. Hello, Mr. How are you? chime that we can't talk directly but um, I'm sorry, I'm late to the party.
Wouldn't be a party with that. Gemma, let's face it. This
is all within an 897 Is everything going on in the office? Is there anything from an HR point of view? And I want you to speak freely here at the moment? Is there anything that doesn't have to be a big thing but if there's anything that you'd like to change around the daily talk show offers, now might be a time where you can discuss it openly with me in an environment where other people are listening as well and because there is a power imbalance sometimes because the the other
Two guys kind of own the business. Is there anything I can help you HR point of view?
No, I think and so I want and I want to know, it's all I mean, it's all tracking along.
I mean over the past couple of days I mean JJ is potentially overstepped the boundary
please discuss what what boundary 97
of a just, I was I was telling him stuff and he shared it publicly.
Oh my god. We don't have a mutual NDA. So
would you like a some kind of, you know, signal or some kind of understanding so that there's awesome things that are not for broadcast.
Normally, I just wait until he gets to read if he gets sort of backed off, but that requires him to, I normally have step them up by that point my way you gotta say, so I'll come up with a solution for this right? What you gotta say is, you're just about to tell him something and even if you're not sure about it, just say to him NFB not for broadcast. And he has to say, Yes. And you got guy and you tell him something, right. Now, if he then wants to broadcast any aspect of that he then has to negotiate with you to stay there. Listen, I bet little Can I can I can we can we use that? Right? It has to be a negotiation. But the trick is, don't ever tell someone something and then afterwards say, Listen, I probably prefer that not be it's like my politicians who do that. They'll tell you something, and then they go, Oh, my by the way that was off the record and you go, No, it's no
problem. I think he told me up front that it's off the record. Exactly. And I think that my feedback
97 years of that, what what he's been saying is like I asked I because 97 sort of built a lovely relationship with grace from Perth who is a gronk of the show. Anyway so
basically I asked 97 before we had grace on Is there anything off limits and all he said was just are nothing too personal. I feel that like that wasn't specific enough by the by the bust through that that grey area there was a grey area there might be just put the whole fleet of 747 through that.
Are that down you need to lock down the board is 97 on these things and make it really clear where you say this is not for broadcast I don't want that mentioned or that mentioned and you just you just take those two Off you go the rest of it, do your best. There's also the promo code you get told stuff by your mates and you don't want to come across like a cane Bane. Sorry, I'm flying apart.
Bro code, bro is very vague as well. I mean, sometimes the problem, how is this gone from help from missing 97 to YouTube manipulating him, and now it's all just his fault.
I've given him very clear procedures going forward involving not for broadcast, so he decided beside him is not the broadcast and then he says Yep, and you get him inside of him. I want to hear those words back, not for broadcast, okay. And then it's everyone leaving, everyone knows by the way. Grice. You know, I'm replying he's a first I'm replying some of your interview with Grice on my radio show this afternoon, because there was a little bit near where she's talking about the lockdowns in Wi Fi seriously, where she, it's just like a little 22nd grab and when I heard it, I wrote the timecode down straightaway. And I can tell you, we're running at this afternoon where she was just talking about the different sections of wy that have been cut off from the other and the fact that you've got police on in various places, stopping
People from moving around and I thought Geez, that was quite interesting the way she told it. So I've got the I've got a little grab of Christ right here in fact it's ready to go to the south.
so this is the bit of rise to certain signs in who says like nine different zones down south or up north or any shade and this place is like the boat or the borders
stopping us getting our signs as they try to get out see, good little grab. So that's getting on my radio show not the
acting cool around this graph. I feel like four
out of the six getting around on the on the show this afternoon but crisis.
Hat sorry. Go for it. I was just going to quickly say Shannon said stop telling him.
Now that he's
like, stop telling you stuff, which is a way to get around
Now when made to share, you know, the main we Let's face it, say something you think, who can I tell? You know, we want to share stuff with Have you been? You're talking a lot you're broadcasting a lot. How do you not over share? Because I feel like we've moved into a new territory of so much? No, it's almost anything's up for grabs. Yeah, well, I think I, Jody is probably the person who picks me up on that the miles to where she'll say to me, she will you know, or she'll say to me, Listen, if you're gonna tell the story from our lives, can you not exaggerate some of it to my tomato pad? And you look at her and I'm like, What do you mean? And then she'll say something. She goes, this is what you said. And I'm like, Well, isn't that how it happened? He goes, No, it's not you know, so I've had to be a little bit conscious of it with God. Sometimes I gotta tell something, I think Hang on a moment. I might just have to really think about the telling here and that it's not you know, completely from my point of view. But the other one is I did I tell you about the time I bought the rights to a story where Um, I don't know whether I told you the story.
It's Zach McLean, my executive producer fell asleep in a car in my street once if I told you that, no, no. So what happened? I had a party one night. And Zach, who's my mic and my producer, I said to him about one I am mate, you should just stay here. Stay here, stay in the spare room. And he said, Now, let's kick on. Let's kick on. Oh, and why don't you kick it on mine. I'm going to bed and I strongly recommend you do it well, because I know when Zach's had enough. So anyway, he leaves my straight. It's a dead end street. It's raining. He went the wrong way. And then he couldn't find his way out of the street. And then it was piecing riding for what he did was he started opening car doors, hoping that one of the car doors would be open so he could shelter from the rain in the back of the car. He slipped in the back of the car in my street. And then he woke up the next day in a stranger's car. And so then he is either going to get out of here so he bails. But then he realises he's lost his phone. So the next day he rings me from his girlfriend's phone, Danny and he says, My Listen, I said, Hey, Danny gets mad at Zach
Might I think I'm embarrassed to say what do you mean he has made us Do you know someone in your street? They've got a silver four wheel drive BMW and a black four wheel drive BMW both parked into end in a driveway. I was like, No, you guys because my I slept in silver BMW.
So what you guys yeah, I slipped in he hasn't made I've lost my phone. I think I might have lifted in the back of a car. Also like might you gronk What have you done
and knock on the front door I said I'll go knock on the door you guys don't do that as well man. I'm not just going to go start opening their friggin card or like you did last night. So I knock on the door and I noticed that there's silver BMW the car door you know when someone closes a door but they don't shut it fully. It needs a little bit of a bumper. So I knew he slipped in the back of that car. So I tap on the door and the kids open I go is your mom and dad here and they went Yep. So alarm bells straightaway they think and what's all this about? So then the mom and dad come to the door and I went all high how I introduced myself and I said look, minimal tricky situation but had a powerful
And got a little bit out of hand with one of my guests. He's a really nice bloke but he slept in the car. And I
okay, he sure and I went, if you have a look at that door, it's ajar. He slept in the back of it, and he's lost his phone and there's a chance to find me in the back. Do you mind if we check the back seat for his phone? I got here right. So I made this guy Jeff. We've never become mates thanks to Zach sleeping in the back of his car. So but as I'm going I had that moment I think. Imagine he spewed in here and we're about to open the door.
Oh no, maybe this is a bad idea. But you know, I was so keen to see whether or not the phone was there anyway, we opened up there's no spew no phone. So anyway, I call Zach I got my here's the good news is you did not spew in the back of Jeff's car. The other bit of good news is I've now met my neighbour Jeff, and he's a lovely guy. I really liked
your foxtail iq as well to
be working for me. So um, so I then said to Zach, I said, Look, you
When you're waking up, you're hung over and you've lost your phone. It's the worst feeling in the world. So I thought, I said, Zack, I'm gonna make this problem go away. Go to the Apple Store. I'll send you a photo of my credit card. I'm going to show you a brand new iPhone. And I'm going to make this problem go away for you. Because now I can't have you paying for my f up. And I went, yeah, you can buy. That's the best thing about it, Jody, and I've got a system that if I get a parking ticket, I just hand it to Jodi. If she gets a parking ticket, she just hands it to me because I don't mind paying her parking tickets. But I do not like paying my right. So it's like, we've got a little system in place here on parking tickets. And it works really well. Because then when you get it's like, hey, it's not my problem. Don't want to deal with it. Someone else pays it. They don't mind paying it because it's not them who got it. So I said, trust me, Zach. It works with Jody and may on the parking tickets. It'll work on the phone. I'm going to show you an iPhone. You're going at the top of the range iPhone, and I'm paying to make your problem go away. Anyway, and then I had this moment, I said, but I now own the rights to this story.
Again, what does that mean? I said, Well, I can tell as many people as I want about this. Yes. No worries. And as he since admitted he goes, I never anticipated how many friggin people you would tell
anyone my exact I got this exact exact slept in Jeff's car of the story straightaway and say I've gotten value for money out of that transaction like he never anticipated the time. And all he all he got was an iPhone.
I love that. Thank you for coming on the show. Are you going to be doing your radio show from the studio for a while? Are you looking at? Yeah, I've had the next two weeks, booked into the holidays, for kind of Easter holidays and school holidays. But I a couple of weeks ago I contacted the boss and said, Man, I'm not comfortable taking holidays at the moment and I can't believe those words come out of my mouth because I love a holiday more than anyone I know. But I just said maybe it's at a time like this where you don't want to desert your listeners and I really genuinely
mean that you know you want those familiar voices there so if people want to listen to you I want to be there and I'm not going to be he said what about the public holidays I was like no I'm I need to work the public holidays as well so so I've cancelled two weeks leave and I'm going to keep on broadcasting the show and and for now I'll be doing it from the studio but you never know boys in this brave new world. You never know where we're going to be next. Thanks for doing the daily talk show.
I've now got my daily talk show studio set up I just need cameras like yours so you all look so why is it look so foggy and you guys look so crisp? Well, we spend a lot of money on air cameras.
So they better cameras like to say the camera quality next time we do this really? Can we just very quickly the current affair that Tracy Grimshaw doing it for her joint orokin a waste of time.
Why? It just the amount of effort is probably all your mates on the cameras look like they had the biggest production and it looked like it was shot on a potato
I mean Tracy's probably thinking and I trace economy way out of the out of the big smile because he's got horses and things like that. So Tracy might be thinking as well. This could be the future here at the set up a little studio next to the horse stables there and I don't have to go into Channel Nine smart lady. It makes sense. It's a daily talk show for those radio shows available as a podcast as well. And this was our living am show you can join us live at 4pm at youtube.com forward slash the daily talk show.
