It's the daily Talk Show Episode 798. I'm coming to you live from ball lane in Victoria.
And I'm here in Collingwood, just on Smith Street near the corner of Hotham.
And what might just give me a fucking address at this point, I mean, essentially absolute animal, absolute animal. Anyway, we get a little piece of mail that we haven't mentioned and I cannot open it. I took my setup home today, as I mentioned on yesterday show still at the office today, at home, I got a little toy buddy's supersize little car. It's basically a car park and you send these little cars down that's in the background. But what I'm holding my hand is an envelope that says the daily talk show and it says do not open until your 800th episode.
I can't believe that. So if I'd found that, I think I would have opened it. So I appreciate that you're in charge of the envelope.
Yeah, I mean, I literally took it because I knew that if I gave it to you to open on Friday, you would have opened it. And I mean, we did spend about 15 minutes looking at the security camera footage to work out who has dropped this off. And what is inside we saw what we did I put I put it down to Russkies, but no one else just thinks that the writing looks like it was me that didn't I can confirm that it's not me. It's not you. Well, if it was you, you shouldn't be at the house because Exactly. I still have you know, got my results. I'm putting my money and we're not going into COVID shit today but I'm putting my money on you put you gave them the wrong they wrote
down a reckons I got no, I don't think I don't think it is that
you don't reckon you gave them the wrong mobile number or they at least interpreted what you said. Now what I think I just gave you that idea. And now so you that's what you're leaning on. But I know you did say that you didn't double check the number Oh no, no See I did they write it down?
Well so they didn't say you know, like repeat the numbers as we were going, but I do remember now, they do give you show you the two but like if you get your bloods like when we did our test to see who had more testosterone, they say can you check you didn't highest testosterone but anyway yeah there's been a huge amount of cases in Victoria. And so what I thought to not to celebrate, but to stand with Dan hashtag Sam with Dan the premier and with the head, I am wearing a North Face jacket because he has a North Face jacket. If you're in Victoria or even in Australia might may have seen Dan Andrews do this. On the weekend. He wears a North Face jacket and the boys on Hump Day replay today spoke all about it. And so
I did hear that and so what what George was saying or what Leon Shergar and who is on the show was saying that It's always bad when Dan's and I
in, wasn't it? It's like it's in a good estimation if he's in the north face, I think.
Yeah, yeah. So we want him in more North Face attire. And so it's a good day. What you're saying is you're projecting good vibes in the north far north face jacket.
Yeah, I'm also feeling a bit boozy.
What do you even know what that means? What are you feeling? boogy I it's feeling boogy it's used in a Migos song bad and boujee commonly refers to middle class, or upwardly mobile, black people. Urban Dictionary top entry for boujee defines it as aspiring to be a higher class than one is. Yeah, so
that you can do that. Yeah, so I'll show why I'm boujee I got from my Uber Eats order. A can of water. No,
hang on. Is this the kind of water that says that it has a flavour but it's just water? And it actually,
so it says it so it's, um, it's filtered through volcanic rocks. I'm guessing it's at the same volcanic rocks that I use to sent my apartment. But um, no, it's uh,
Can I just tell you a quick, quick story about it? Yeah. So do you know about I don't know if Yeah, so I don't know if Jules lamb would want me to tell this story. But Giovanni was, was in. I think it was like a cafe or something. And he, he was saying, he sold his water, the one you've got in your hand and was like laughing about it and how it's like, purified it's in the candidate through volcanic water. It's meant to have a flavour to it, and it's just water. And he was almost about to vocally say that. It's like, Luke has this crock of shit to this guy that walked in, that he knew from many years ago and The guy's like that's my water brand and so the can your holding is the brailey and he almost put his foot in it and he's like you just did it for me anymore I remember we actually cuz we ended up tasting it together and I saw I did a taste test with Jules and we were actually like, there is a slight taste and so we almost went back on what you know he only went back on what he said
well the interesting thing is that Bri has gotten this before I believe that foxes den the chicken shop on Swan Street. They have this but it's like the sparkling water This seems outrageous because this is just common stormy still mineral water filtered through volcanic rock.
Can you please crack it? I want you to taste it because I think it could be the one that is meant to have a slight flavour and I was like how does water How does just because it comes from the volcanic rock. How does that actually have a flavour outside of like mineral you're like, you know that metals you tasting them the metal From the earth
Well, can I just read you? Can I read you the sort of the tasting notes on the back? It's not really tasting notes. It's more than just a funny story
before the storm.
First there is calm air at pace. Waters still a tribute to Victoria's Central Highlands, found in the depths of a dormant volcano, purified by nature, infused with minerals, a 30 year journey. We could just use this for my 30th birthday. Calm and stormy still mineral water. Nature's answer in 100% sorry, 100% recyclable can water in a can. Here's why. Cooler, eco friendly 100% recyclable, infinite recycling and so I can look On the back and it's got the ingredients.
Yeah, let me guess.
What do you think the number one ingredient is? h2o, water. Australian mineral water typical minerals analysis I won't go into that it's quite boring. Yeah.
Anyway now crack it I want to get get the flavour we get the flavour and did you pay
release? No so discount if you spent over $30 on Uber Eats they get at Tara Twilight, the cafe just on Johnson street they do include a can of water. It's 500 mils, which I respect that it's bigger if it was any smaller. Yeah, I'd be pissed off. Here we go. So the serious thing is, will it make a satisfying sound opening based on no carbonation?
Well, kombucha starts with no carbonation but then carbonates itself Well, that's a natural fermentation
so sometimes they can be disappointing and they're still slightly carbonated. So, what I'm saying is it could be absolutely just that.
good. It sounded good. I mean, I like the sound of it. I mean, we don't have a fizzy drink here to compare it to with the
smells. If anything. Smells like nothing. Okay, have a sip of it. I want you to tell me
he slept it.
what is it? It tastes like water. Yeah, that's it. There's no other way to describe it. There's no flavour to it. You don't taste any like watermelon. You're not watermelon you like some kind of it's shocking. It's shocking drinking something like this. You know, having been and had Lacroix. Yeah, it's just like, it's a It's a weird sensation. It's like,
you know, in in LA. I was surprised when we were with Matt D Avella and his partner that he's one wife now and she was she had a milk carton. What I thought was a milk carton. They drink water out of milk cartons over there. It's this brand and I've since seen water and box. I think it's called water water in a box super popular. I mean, I got no problem with it. Water, water and a can. Oh, the thing is, I just wouldn't want to pay high price for that. If I could buy it in the can. I would I would get it versus a bottle. I think what? It's a bit better having recall it. alley minimum versus plastic. So now well done. Good work.
Yeah. Well, that was a little fun game.
Yeah, I mean last night, this is another fun game. For when you driving. I think you're either a flasher, or you're not you I know you're flashing mad, but it's different. When you're in the car driving, and you see somebody who may be doing the wrong thing, they could just be speeding towards you or they might not. But you know that you've just passed a cop who's got a radar gun? Do you flash the oncoming traffic, which is illegal? I know the I know that it's it's illegal to flash people. Would you be the kind of person to flash?
I'm the type of person to flash when there is no cops as a way of making people slow down and having a little bit of control because they think there's a cop car whereas I'm just like,
that's just funny. baggers.
Yeah, but I don't think that I remember. I'm trying to think going back to being a kid. My family, I feel like they weren't they flashes. They were not. I don't think they were but then they they had a Chrysler 300 C and There was only one other car that was the same in the neighbourhood and so there was the sort of the finger sort of you do sort of get a like a type of thing and I feel like would flash for them but I don't think I don't think that mom was a flash I thought she felt that if someone was speeding that they just you know they're just fine Yes.
Yeah. I feel like he dad would have been a flasher though
he was being dragged right back right he did famously drag race my brothers you know and science teacher. We had the guy who I baru and would then recommend reckons he won because he had turbo but we is that what's
what's that called? As in the nine teacher? Where's
the science teacher? One? Yeah, you had like one of those Lancer? It was like a crazy like, the huge of noxious spoiler on the back.
Yeah, I think you had it right. This Subaru wr x who drives Yes. four wheel drive and turbo. So if it was up against you, dad,
dad he was in the wheel the Tonka.
Yeah. Yeah. Which would have lost traction at the lights and you dead too. I didn't get a good start. But meanwhile, the four wheel drive turbo has just absolutely launched or you know, anyway.
Yeah, well, he, you would know when he was getting serious when he would turn off traction control. And we all get fired up like because traction control would sort of ruin the it's pretty fucked up really. But yeah, that was a bit of a bumpy ride by getting in the getting in the light mums rule was that editing Beverly Hills near the shopping centre. There's a it's two lines. There's like a third line which ends up merging straight off to the lines. And so if you go into that far left lane, you're a bit of a prick because you need to speed up to take over everyone and mum never liked that. So her rule was she was only ever going to drag race. If she would just end up with a light she would never like would be like going
to the left lane. Go go go. No, no, no. Yeah,
but um yeah, mom got into it, too was
just you totally disconnected from what can happen. I remember telling mom Oh, can you please flatten it? Can you please go fast? It's I mean, it's horrible. But let's say last night I'm driving. And I saw a highway patrol car. They're no good. They're always sniffing for bet you know, people doing something wrong.
right. Like it feels like he's but Highway Patrol. moreso. So yeah,
because that's all they do. Like, yeah, they're not like you're not solving murders. They're literally just trying to catch people who are speeding and shit. Yeah,
any road offence, any mobile phone in hand, not wearing the seatbelt, all that stuff. And so I pulled a turn left on the swan straight and I saw highway patrol car on the just going the other direction completely stopped. So they're on the other side of the road to me and completely stopped and I just drove slowly past them. I was like, What is going on here? And they both sort of looking back. One guy was looking in the rear vision mirror. The other guy in the seat was completely twisted to look back. Like, Oh, no, they're onto something. And so I cruise down. What I realised there was a p plater sitting in a BMW, who was obviously waiting in a clear way. So usually you can park there but after 5pm can't park there. And he was just sitting there parked, and I think somebody that he was with was in the little grocery store that he was out the front of, other than that, I didn't know what else he could be doing. He he had his window down. And as I drive past I'm like, oh, they're onto him. They're about to do a u banger and come down and get him and so I decided to be My horn a couple of times as I went past risky, because they weren't that far away there.
You go past multiple times. I can just imagine you going No, no, no,
no, just literally as I went past, BBB and I tried to lock eyes with him. And sure enough, he looked up at me. And next minute he looked down, and the cop did a u banger sirens on pull up behind him. I could have saved this guy. I could have done more. Well, could you regret not? I could have slowed right down and said make cops behind you go. And it would have it would have saved him. Like I reckon they would have found him. Because that's what they do. There's no ifs or buts with those those books.
Yeah, I mean, I feel like it's a that we're doing the wrong thing. Well, I mean, we've I get it I see the bright light. This is why the constant argument brain I have on this stuffies I say like she'll just get me to park somewhere. Say we're in the city and she's running in because the SodaStream fucking thing didn't have the cable and we're having to return it. Yeah, I'm someone who does blocking us because I don't want to be stationary and potentially getting picked up.
Yeah, I think there's there's probably two types of people in that scenario one that's will wait to be told to move on. I'm probably more that guy and you're a blocky guy. It's a there's more risk in being the guy that waits until he's told like yesterday, we had even when I was dropping stuff to your place I parked in and one of your neighbours really hot spots and I risked it I was like my this is the you know, the storage cage was empty. I made a few just you know, few
ended up getting live there. Did you get access to our car park based on our work right?
It's actually ridiculous. So we I can open and you can open your garage, which Is the communal garage with our garage office garage key.
Or very silly
What do you call it? It's but then it's not reverse so you can't open our garage with with Yeah, I mean it's annoying I mean garage is on my mind mind mind still not fixed Have they given us a few Yeah no, I'm I'm I'm I'm say I want to I try and get on to the real estate agent just start saying shit like oh at Jeunesse Oh Jeunesse Yeah, just I don't know how effective it is. Sometimes it's, you know, Amy's approach of just sort of, you know, seemingly being being nice. Okay,
it's, uh, yeah,
I went so yesterday we had some people you know, timely as we were about to go remote, come to, you know, instal some, like some signage in our office. Not that we're going to use it at all. for the coming month,
it's to cover up the day it goes in front of all the desks so we can eventually get a nice wide shot.
There's no nice signage material covering the desk. So don't say your feet and cables and but the blog double parked yesterday across our driveway, and I, I take it upon myself and I start worrying about his car, I start worrying that he's gonna get a ticket, and I and I have to work very hard to let go. It's a funny thing. It's one of the things like if you were to be parked, double parked, and I knew you're double parked, I struggle to not take it on as Oh, well. That's like that's my car. Basically.
That's probably the biggest thing with Telly working with Telly is like that's a big responsibility for you.
Oh my god, I fuckin Yeah. And tally, which I say to her. You've always got to park at the studio and I'll make it work because when she first came in to be on the daily talk So she borrowed a friend's Range Rover. And she parked it on Victoria Street, which is a clear way from 5pm onwards, and I think she finished up about 505 walks down after doing a podcast with us, and her car has been towed. No, sorry. Her mates car has been tired. It's horrendous. Luckily, the tow luckily the tow trucks take the cars about 100 metres away. Oh, really?
That's good, isn't it? Yeah.
No, no, it's a weird one. So the city of maybe like dantas and kilda era, all through Collingwood in the city. They tow the cars to a backstraight in Collingwood, just behind and then how
do you get back?
Pay $550 and they open up the gate for you.
Give him some noise I mean, it's good that they're so close.
I mean, it's good that say close, but horrible. The fact that I think telling you where to go.
So yes, I had no idea.
I had no idea until I was you know, skating past once and I saw the big guide open. It's kind of weird. And it does feel it's in such a good spot in Victoria. Sorry in Melbourne like it's a be able to pay for Harley, can I yeah.
I've been thinking of money. I've been thinking about a lot it's actually being something I reckon that's been over a year in the making. The Can you can you have a guess? Something that it's it's something that I'm going to start doing? Yeah. Actually, I can think of already a million things, bro. You saw the Seth Godin book and she said what about getting that done? For a paid hundred? My baby paid hundreds on Friday. If it's something I've been talking about for a while, what comes to mind
your exercise routine you
like it's not about it so it's not about it's actually not about that but yeah, no so I did get a an exercise bike and I'm going to at some point maybe Episode 800 for a period of that show maybe I get on the exercise bike now what
I did I got it wrong seriously, I thought that was it.
No, there's been something else that's been on my mind a lot it's come up on a bunch of shows. I mentioned it writing your memoir now but that's also happening.
I mean, I could go for day
yeah keep going what else if I spoke about it with Andy Lee.
You're going to be the tea guy that was that was a thing for a while you're getting coffee with Andy lay you spoke about Yeah. Fasting gonna start fasting has something to do food food related at all. Hot and cold. not okay. Not Well, what do we speak to Andy lay about? We spoke about time to think about business, creative. Running a business. I don't know doing stand up, fucking reading a book, reading some of the books behind you for the first time.
Well, I spoke to our mate Mike about it the other the other day when he came into the office.
Ah, now I'm onto it. I want to you're gonna start watching Major League Baseball. Correct. And when's, when's the major league basketball season start? I think
it starts today or tomorrow.
Okay, 23rd of July. So it's the 27th and so it starts, so it will start. If it's Wednesday now it will start Friday, Australian time.
That's not bad.
So I have a tan game. Okay,
who's your team Phillies.
Phillies were ladder.
They've just fucking started. No,
no, but it's in like, it's like saying, Melbourne football club. You know,
I've had some I wouldn't know where Melbourne atrocious history, they've had some atrocious history. You wouldn't put them up there with just actually being training Academic Training games. I think I'm gonna get a major league baseball subscription rather than using
kayo which is a major league baseball subscription. 125 a year or a month yet? No.
get what do you want to know about them? About Philly? Yeah, they won the World Series championships championships. championships. Yeah. 2008 and 19 82,008.
And then before that was 1980,
which is year 2008. That was when the recession was Maybe they play well in trauma.
Play now. Well, the 23 year gap between winning a championship is ridiculous and so now
they're our mascot is the
Philly fanatic. It's a cheesesteak philly cheese day.
Have you have you seen what he brought up is brian ross now he's like he's green. He's like probably one of the best mascots you could get. It's outrageous. The Phillies match the rules.
Do you know the rules all used to play table? table is not baseball very simply saying I know the rules of basketball because I played netball. Sure, you might not know it's like the equivalent of very different though.
Very done. I think that's wrong. I think that's be the equivalent of it, table and baseball. It's it's essentially the difference between tea in baseball, his table just has a tee that you like you just you don't have some pitching it that you do outside of that. It's very similar.
Is it literally just for kids that can't
yet hit a ball?
Trying to be safe, safer.
And so do you want to? It's a bonding thing? Like I don't feel like we've got anything in common.
That's fucking funny.
It's true. What have we got in common? Well,
well, you know, the guy that I called to go for a beat in the pub. I mean, I didn't call anyone on the bench because he can't go to the fucking beat. You can't go for a beat in the pub.
Do I say it politely? No.
So what's the like you? What What can we get into it together? What
having to fly was not
forcing like I'm saying things do you want to do you want to go watch? Do you want to watch the baseball and see what happens?
Sounds so fucking boring but watching the baseball.
Levi's had it on like maybe it's something you could have on on the TV. And then you could be doing stuff with Bodhi or playing and then we just went fact that was a good homerun.
It's so slow. It's so slow. I like
the baseball. I went to the baseball in New York. So the Yankees play. Now, it's just when you're in New York, you go to the what's it called the Yankee Stadium sick. It's such an experience. You pay your pay, you know, expensive money for the worst tickets, and you leave absolutely dehydrated because you ate you know, hot dog and some chips that are the saddest things you've ever had in your life. But you feel very connected to being an American at that moment, or a New Yorker at least. But we haven't even watched it like we I the thing. What interests me about baseball What interests me is how much money they make. What interested me, we yet know the big, the big catches, they get like some of them running, jumping, grabbing it just before it hits the wall. Like that's always impressive. It seems like
basically like I could get around it.
Well, I feel like not too So what is it? It's a basketball. So basketball, it's like basketball people do. The whole team does a bit more than just like, you get the slugger who's, I mean, you're fielding, but it's like the bola in cricket. Seems like he's doing probably the most work from the start. And then the wicket keeper in cricket. Seems like he's on second because he's got the, you know, the ball could come to him. And then you get the fielders that are just sort of running around catching a ball. I feel like it's even less in baseball
now I think
you reckon Maybe,
yeah, but I think that maybe I'm being silly. Why? I mean, what's the difference between baseball? Yeah, but also the baseball versus cricket? What's the actual difference in what the field is doing? Why a field is doing more in cricket?
I'm not even saying they're doing more in cricket, but you've already got. So it's it's probably the it's probably at the same. It's probably the same because you've got the fielders and then you got a guy behind the batter and you got someone delivering the pitch. But like, what about
could that be the two? With Bodie? Like, what about if I got him in love? And I tell you,
that would be good. So I'd much rather just throw out go throwing play catch with you. That's my
thing with no but you can't say you're not meant I'm throwing with this. It's called.
Another thing that I like, sorry, over cricket, like cricket over baseball is that you got three strikes and you're out. So you're basically throwing a ball. Three times and then you're out whereas someone can be slightly you know smashing 100 runs and they got to you know, they run back and forth back and forth. There is a yeah so what am I I'm just trying to work out what do you see the baseball let's try to look at the appeal for baseball. So what are people
uniforms are better in baseball and cricket yeah i agree you going so I could wear a I was looking online for shoes. I'd look better in a baseball jacket like a then I would have fucking cricket uniform at the office.
He informs us on why it's essentially I'll give it to baseball is one of the more sort of cooler looking like because you know, they're all sort of in the you want to you know, I wear a baseball jacket I wear like, what do you call it like a? They're like a puffer jacket, not a puffer jacket like a Yeah,
yeah, I know what you're talking about. I
like the car club had the made by the huge I don't know if I've spoken about on the show they have huge internal politics these Car Club because of the merchandise apparently they dad wants to get hoodies but they've got a bunch of old merged with the old logo and so the treasurer won't allow any new merchant till the other stuff sold Yeah, but that's piece of like our business
literally what I would do I'd be like we're not buying fucking we're not dropping five k on the merchant we haven't we still got $2,000 of stock
on the merge thing. So Episode 800 but I just want to give you one compliment it is a bomber jacket,
bomber jacket. I think you would look great. Your legs would really sort of pop in a little baseball outfit, because you got good pins. You'd have you sort of you know, you would have a jersey up top and he said his skins you know, it's like tight down below. Could be a little bit of top
thanks I don't know what to say. It's very nice.
just so now take it, it's, you don't want like it's one of those things where I don't want to take it. I want to push back and make fun of it. But it's a nice thing to say. It's a compliment. It's really nice. And so yeah, the the baseball cap is obviously the thing that I could get straight away and it would signal that I'm into major league baseball. There is the jersey there's watching it all this having just the apps on my phone, push notifications, getting into baseball podcasts as well. It'd be pretty cool. Maybe to to get like a baseball or on the show that I could like that we could chat to
are maybe where we could, you might be able to bring me around is finding a documentary about baseball. I found one
are an hour and 40 minutes and brave refuse to watch it. Yeah.
So there was a there is a famous one about
who's the rug you said? Yes. So there is the one you're looking at now. So mine was just like an overarching sort of this is baseball history thing. But who's the who's the guy who's the real famous guy? He plays for the New York Yankees New York Yankees. He was the one that was in I think, sandlot The Sandlot spoken. Yeah.
It's like the aryana Derek Jeter, Derek. No, this is one of the most famous pies in current day, Derek jedha. chatter fucking
so the guy is Babe Ruth. Babe Ruth. Yep.
Hang on. Baseball. I'm gonna butcher this name Derek somebody though. Jetta je T.
I've already started them following the Instagram for Phillies.
Oh, yeah, a film where the daily talk show
just from mine, I think But should we start? I'm sure. I don't know whether we could start it in the discord or what it could be. Thanks live. Yeah, it was Babe Ruth. Yes. Should we should we start some sort of way that the gronk could communicate
around baseball stuff? Oh no, it's under the presumption that people want to watch baseball. You
know, it's an opt in thing people that are interested can get into it and those that don't,
I think it has to be
solidly laid by you. And it's a bit like, because then you're seeing the traction. So it's better just to start versus talk about it and get others to jump in and say shit. And so if you are the baseball guy, which you've sounding like you're climbing, you stop. You get out there.
You don't get in it Find if I get a two screen subscription. You've got the Apple TV you could have it on would you? Maybe I'll give it I'll have a watch a few. Yeah, so you've come around
I'd like to I do like sport. The thing is it's there's not much I don't like I don't like tennis until it's fucking Australian Open and all of a sudden, Rafa Rafa, Rafa Nadal is playing Roger Federer and I'm into it
and so let's just pretend now like it's the Australian Open like I think that not much changes. And so I think there is if you want to get involved, send me an email Josh at the daily talk show calm Do you want to be involved? I might set up a group and I don't want a group text. I'll text you all individually, just with good chat about the baseball stuff in the news.
Yeah, yeah. happy with.
That sounds good. Sounds good.
My mom's going into surgery for some call it it's gonna say Rhino Steve, I don't know if that's the correct term. But she's having a nose job.
Yeah, that's I'm pretty sure
she's. It's a it's an internal nose job. It's like
she's like, I know she's having she's having something
maybe Right. I mean, just what jack jack post
was getting as well. But anyway she's she was going to get that but she had to get her a covid test done before she she goes in on Friday
and has fun she gets some tests back.
Yeah, so the 48 hour she went to like, one way or it's a quick 48 hour result type of deal. But she if she was gone to that mate, whatever would have had to go inside, but she was talking about the the gag stuff like you know, because you goes in the back of your throat and I was very proud it just like they could have the nostril thing thing was sort of a little bit painful. But the throat thing like I could have Um, you get a
Yeah. Multiple swabs? No, seriously. And so I was talking to mom about it's just made me laugh because she's very similar to me because I said, Are you good with like, Was it easy for you? I'm like, because I brushed my tongue. She says, Josh, I basically swallow my toothbrush.
Teeth go back and brushing the tongue.
She's a dental nurse, but I just it made me realise where I got that desire to brush my tongue so vigorously, and I have it as a bit of a badge of honour.
Well, people who you really know about people who don't have a gag reflex, because they tell you, the people that are bad, you probably they've very, there's a huge version. I never mentioned it because I don't I've never thought about it.
Have you got a good gag reflex?
Well, how do you test what does it What does it taste look like for somebody who wants to start?
What do you think? What have you got in you around? pins prior to COVID? unsafe? You've got the balloon duck.
What are what? What do you put your finger down the throat like, is that?
Like But no, but
what I want to know is what's bad? Like what is someone who doesn't have what you have the gift? You know the beautiful gift of being able to put things down your throat without spewing. What do people do? Like, if they touch the back of their tongue they would spew is that what happened?
So maybe, maybe like if I just get my finger and just do that I won't show the inside of my mouth.
At this point. You might as well go get a banana.
Well, yeah, or there's a toothbrush. I could do the toothbrush and show you how far back. Is it too much? Eight. I'll show you give me a sec. Okay. Can you go get your toothbrush and I'll show you how far back
Go. It's too high. It's too high. I'm getting my brushes. We don't want to have data on the podcast.
Anyway, Friday is Episode 800.
It's pretty crazy.
We just bring the screwed Derrick friend of the show before. And we were talking about how he helped us with lighting for our episode 500, which we did live. And that was, yeah, 300 episodes ago. feels like yesterday.
So, anyway, Josh has got his toothbrush.
So the thing the interesting thing is that I'm already like hearts racing a little bit based on normally I have water with it. And maybe that helps. Maybe the idea of having a toothbrush or a dry you know, it's a very pavitt almost like do you think that needs replacing? Anyway, that's fine. So you're ready. What are you doing? That's so that's the back of my throat. And then he went on, so you can say,
yeah, and so you just brush like that. What are you doing that no one needs to go that far,
because you're brushing the whole tongue
but you can eat stopped at that point you've got you've gone so far that your tongue isn't there. You're brushing your teeth.
Yeah, well, it is that like, I cleaned out my throat before the coverted like I rinsed out. So I was waiting for them to say like back you're going to clean. But
I know that.
You know you could get a thing saying sorry your test hasn't gone through. We need you to do it again. It can happen.
You sir Bree has the test. Yeah, I'm gonna call starting tomorrow. I just didn't want to be the gronk that calls too early.
No, they say five days and after. from five days onwards, you can call
and so do you count. So if I did a Friday, Friday
afternoon, you can call today, I reckon, or I can you call today. It wouldn't be too. Too bad or just wait till tomorrow and then give him a buzz in the morning.
Episode 100 is on Friday. We'll do 4pm we'll do the show might do some sort of fun. Friday night drinks. We'll let you know gronk about that. That could be fun.
Yeah, hopefully JB is putting together a bit of a highlights package hopefully the toothbrush gagging test makes it when are you going to do Episode 1000 Can we test a gag reflex?
I don't know maybe it's
Yeah. toothbrush doesn't cut it for me. I want to see I want something else.
What did that not did actually that not impressed you in all seriousness, or did impress you if it wasn't impressed, would you gag
now? No, no, but I don't I don't see any reason why I need to promote that. I don't have a I've got a good get. I've got a good gag reflex. So somebody's competitive aiders brag about it because they need to not spew
it just feels like an accessible skill.
quite useless. Many, many y's
Yeah, all right. Well, we'll finish the the bike the exercise bike. I did 15 minutes this morning. I was going to do an hour I was fact by the end of it.
