Now? What is it? It's a fun Yeah,
that's right. Oh, dude, give us a pill. It's
not on your computer. The thing is, when you're in Chrome on a desktop, it doesn't show the Flamingo. So currently on nine and then you've got a little microphone, the daily talk show and too much Telly which what
I appreciate the BIG MEDIA COMPANY website you put the dub dub dubs on there, just in case people weren't on the World Wide Web yet.
Yeah, I had no problem. I had no guy on my radio show up in shape. And he said all the W's and then he readies Yeah, address out all the W's. I was like wow, but a lot it's is it more to say all the W's but I paid it. Yeah. God it was good. Yeah. Great. All the
mines coming up.
Now. I don't know what you're doing in Chrome. It works.
I mean, Chrome and in Firefox. bizarre. bizarre. I'll screenshot it for you guys.
Okay, good. Can you do a little loom video explaining?
No worries. No.
service? what's what's happening with you?
Ah, not too much. I'm excited for our clay kit. I mean, I think I spoke about it on Wednesday. You didn't say show? Yeah. And so I'm just getting getting fired up for what we're gonna do with that. I don't know. I don't know what we're gonna make. And I don't know how it works, what the process is whether we need to add water to the clay or if it's ready to go now. But we've got the little spinny thing so Sandy shore
not, I can't hang on. It's It's It's in the it's still in the box that it got sent to us. So I haven't actually opened the box from from the post. But is it manual? It's 10. It's 10 kg. And it's a manual spinner. Yeah, it's not. It's not automatic. So it's a lot it's a lot of clay.
Let me go back to the office.
Yeah, be a bit shit though. Yeah, I don't
want that back yourself.
But also it has to be it has you have to pay for it to get put into Kill, kill kill.
No, sure. But the thing is, most of the annoying thing is you've brought up the clay story. This is why we only have you on now, because you haven't actually brought anything new to that store. Like unless you're just trying to really push the brand value that the guy can decline. What's the difference? What's the actual
I have to undo it and you ask now what? Am I allowed to open up the clay?
So is it like when you open it and then it's gone dry? You can't? Is it sealed?
In a clear bag though? He can just
yeah, he'll be able to hold hold up the bag. But I remember that. Do you remember? In school playing with clay?
Oh, yeah, the smell the sweet.
I want to do it.
Here we go. What were you putting your thumb in Josh,
you put your thumb in the clay like you you'd have to create a bit of moisture. Um, and so you put a hole in and then you put water. Remember that?
Yes, yes. Yes. He rubbed a little mushy. Oh, yeah. And he had this thing. No, no, no, no, I can't open
this. Oh, I'll just say this. Is this the worst packaging because it's like it's a hot. No, no cotton paper but the put like, drawn between and so when I open it, it goes everywhere.
It's like newspapers. Yeah, sure. Okay.
Okay. Josh, are you across Yak backs.
yak, yak, yak, yak, yak, yak. Back up. Guess a yak back is like a something that you drink out of that would go into your back.
Now I can't believe maybe you were maybe you were a bit young. Like maybe there were the big bag type things to be able to like, kick around. Yeah,
that to me. I don't know what that is either.
new clothes. I know you're the same age though. Maybe it was a couple of years old. Yak back is a line of handheld Electronic Voice Recorder toys developed by Ralph at Team makena. For Yes, gear. And anyway, so this was like in the mid to late 90s. several versions of the toy were developed which include the yak, yak yak back to
didn't have a yak. That's a man that is a blast from the past, isn't it? Yeah.
I want to Yak back. I wonder. I reckon they're expensive. I reckon. Yeah. Get them on eBay, eBay, yak back, like these will cost because you can't get on imagine one getting one in the
20 bucks. 20. us. So
back. It's got like, Gods it's gotten. Definitely it's got buttons on it. And you can the idea is TJ that you can record things and then just play them back.
Yeah, but you can walk the voice is a bunch of. There's a bunch of sort of fun filters. I mean, we do have like, probably, you know, superior technology right now. But there's something about that little handheld. Just to be able to just a little mimic mimic doctors used to Did You Ever See a doctor just talking to his little guy? Yeah, yeah, you're caught
up. Yeah, little
Yeah. Okay, so Mason has some kind of red spot on his penis, and I'll like that they will take notes. And then that would be transcribing that shit.
Yeah. That sort of went out of fashion didn't like, I feel like I wonder what the deal was,
was AI. Just the transcription service.
But they they also had the idea. They still haven't had a wooden sort of, like an ice cream stick on my tongue for many years outside a year, you know, eating ice creams. But do they still use them as a way of pushing down your tongue? Yes.
Yeah, they do. They do for kids? I mean, you haven't been the doctor and so
why aren't they doing it to to us? Or they do do it just cuz I haven't been to the doctors.
I think half the time it was because kids couldn't accidentally lower their tongue. As you get older. You know, your tongue, your tongue manoeuvres become superior to a child. So you can fall just I can drop my tongue down at the backhaul.
I actually can't. I'm like really bad at that. Like the dentist will say he put your tongue down. And I'll think I'm putting my tongue down there. Like that's up. I really struggled.
Do you know what happened to the right way? Is there any tricks? Jeff, can you do? like four leaf clover or three leaf clover with your tongue or anything like that Mike, or not?
A lot on?
Huh? Okay, something about people. There's not everyone can do that. tricks,
falling flavours on it guys. crinkly
three leaf. So it says start with the tip of your tongue behind your bottom teeth. Push the middle of your tongue down. while pushing forward. This should create a fold along your tongue just to buy beauty. He's not doing that. Hi,
the daily talk show.com we'll send you out stickers. If you can't do it. Boy
Sorry, sorry, but the three leaf clover. Not that one. No, I'm sorry. Yeah, I mean, Bodie even does the pudding. So
we we Sydney stickers. If you can't do the
if you can't just do the tongue thing like what I'm doing now. Which is just like your tongue out. It's just sort of like followed. If you can't do that sympathy stickers to you. Just send us an email. Hi at the daily talk, show calm, and we can sort that out for you. We'll limit to five people just so it doesn't get too hectic.
Think about tongue rings.
mean jazz? Have you ever thought about getting a tongue?
Not just because of the pain but I feel like back in the day they looked cool. Yeah. Or is that just to my mom
being a dental nurse? She was very she
say like you could lose the sense of taste and things like that, apparently. And also the split Have you guys seen those? That? There's a bunch of anyone else's tongue feel weird right now. Like after like it's, like, strained or something from doing that?
No, no, I'm fine.
I mean, I do my tongue workout straining. Yeah, but that's real bad. No, but it's like the the what are the holes the the how you sort of like stopped pushing it out and you go further and further and it creates a actual circular hole in your yellow are short. Yeah. Yeah. I mean, that's a commitment. Isn't it? Like, once you
why Really? Yeah, what wasn't
cuz i was i was a kid like punk. Nah, I don't know I just like that whole aesthetic I suppose. You know? I don't know like they always had like the black Amer fringe hair, the big things tats skater shoes like
what about the stretches wet outs like the thing is they look okay when they're like that they're black but it's just like a shrivelled up it looks like some sort of, you know?
Yeah, so they just want to wear them all the time.
You think after you? I mean you cut and re sign up if you want to really fixer. Yeah, really? They do that now?
Yeah, I mean, the best thing to do is just not to do it, isn't it? Yeah.
Right photos. Have you got any photos of yourself in that email period that we could share on your company by Oh,
yeah, see if I can dig some up.
So what do you mean like when you talk about the aimo thing? Is it like going to gigs? We get really into sort of like dramas and stuff.
Yeah, we used to go to the the old fire station is where all the gigs happened. Battle of the Bands. Do you recall them? Yeah, I
was I was a band manager for the band my own enemy. Tracks like, will smash your fucking face.
Yes. I didn't enjoy that kind of music. But no, I love screamer. But that those lyrics and disgraceful.
So you wouldn't have like that.
Not probably would have at the time. But so my boyfriend was in a band. And he used to go play at all these gigs and whatever. And it was just a scene. And you know, when people were in that mosh pit, and everyone would like, spread out and it was like the death or whatever it was called, everyone's like, fly kicking and swinging their legs around.
It's horrible. It's it looks uninviting. You know, I couldn't think of anything worse, to be honest.
I get it, though. I get it in the in dandenong, there's a place called the castle, where that would have all of those events. It was just near the pancake parlour, and interesting sort of saying, not one that I ever really felt comfortable in.
Do you think there's a period of time where you're going into an emo phase? Or if that's what you want to go down? Where are you okay, any of them? So there's like, a guy I went to school with who lends lent in hard to that bikey Look, not the law, not the gangster by he look, but the old silent lovers, you know, like, old, you know, like the old Teto you know, the anchor look, whenever, you know, you've got like all these sort of, they're just like coloured tattoos all over you. He bought a bike he sort of rolled up the bottom of his pants had sort of on? Yeah, Popeye. Yeah, yeah, exactly. Exactly. The kid who did it, though, was also the one who lent hard into the Nike Look, when he was young, he got into the art scene. Like, it was always one that sort of led heart into it. And there's a period of time before. Like, I feel like you're convincing yourself that it's the thing you want to do. And you probably feel like you're not self conscious. But you're conscious of I need to look the part before you become the part. You know, when you're in the emo culture. Is there I mean, I haven't gone close to it. You just sound like Yeah. You know, the only expert out of us is their environment where you know the person has done they're here to look really emo.
So you, you are you accusing them of posing at the start, TJ? Why? poses poses? Yeah.
All I'm saying is any of this stuff. If you want to become the God that go that does a certain thing is a period of time before it feels totally aligned. Like so you might be rebelling at first were you feeling uncomfortable? But then you're like, boom, you hit a sweet spot where you don't feel those feelings anymore. I just think any of these subcultures that you get into would have that feeling run.
Yeah, I remember having a conversation where at my grandpa's house and I was with my mom. And it was that phase when I was probably entering into it maybe. And this is so so embarrassing. And makes you probably don't even know who they are. But I was listening to simple Flan thinking that I was a big rock chick and then they were my like gateway into that kind of music as well as my boyfriend at the time.
Perfect is one of my favourite songs of all time. It's a good song. I'm not even joking. Love. Perfect.
Did you go to the Do
not and i didn't i didn't end up what's mine
what's what's good music
cuz then I got I got real heavy like I was like full screamer full Amory
went through a proper phase of like real kind
of like Isn't that like the High Rock? Isn't that funny that it's just like the first phase that you get into? Like there's a point where you can't even talk about it anymore.
If anyone knew that you listened to simple Platinum that part.
I mean, the thing is listening back on screamo music now suggest is it would you feel nostalgic listening back or is it too much to
still listen to it occasionally? Yeah.
I mean, your total sort of out. You told us around the office that you What were you the folk music guy. Oh, yeah, that's
my gardener. I have the most eclectic taste in music. It's like I love old school rock and roll, lack. I'd love to go to a pub and just listen to that stuff. Like American Pie. Whatever. Jessie's
American Pie is a great song. It goes for like nine minutes or something. It's Yeah.
JOHN McClane. And then I've got my a my music and then you've got your pop, and then you folk and then what else is there? No, I don't like the skirt, technology, that kind of stuff.
I get that you like that. But Oh.
Yeah, that's not true.
I just wanted
as an adult, depending on what scenes you're knocking around in, I could imagine you've worked in agency life. Like he can predict what kind of people work in these businesses in the music that they're into. Right? It's and so how do you Is this a hidden little secret for yourself that you bring like, you know, you choose when you bring out the screamer? Is this what is this what we're finding out?
It's I probably wouldn't play it for you guys. It's just sometimes when you're like, you know, driving or you're just walking and you just want to listen to that kind of music. I don't know.
It'd be nice to have agency in your data lead a bit little bit outdated. Yeah, the screen? Yes. Endorphins going? No, I mean, it's safe to say folk around an office you like, it's like folk and everyone's like, cool. And then they move on with their day. You know, it's like doesn't cause too much of a combo.
Guys, can I just say that the biggest sort of gesture of love just happened. So you heard my throat getting a bit croaky. It's because I can't I don't have any fizzy water at the moment because Bray separated them in the fridge and put a sign for mine and hers because I was drinking too many. And she's just heard me struggling to talk and went and got one of her can love and has given it to me, which is huge. This is massive. I'm you Josh. Josh, you
I watched down what's that film saves I know you will know this one. It was directed by Angelina Jolie was broken. Amy GCL that now that's love assisting my content by yelling at the name of the film broken. And it's about World War Two. kept these you know, prison prisoner of war over in Japan, Asia. Anyway, these people were
asking for the long
story short, the long story short is they went down in a plane. And this is back in the day. They had a few life rafts. Three of them survived in this life raft. They had limited food, water. So it's like amazing that in these planes. They just pop out these life rafts and inside they have just these little care packs. Anyway, they lasted 40 something days is the true story. 47 days something crazy like that. Anyway,
that is my worst nightmare. Oh dude
crashing in the main stock in the ocean with sharks. That is surely my wish
sharks no shelter, like not enough water. They started eating they tried to eat a seagull they spewed and they started catching fish. They grabbed a shark and beat it up and stabbed it and ate it. Anyway, I survived and then we're captured but there was there was one guy on the boat that when everyone was asleep, he got a bit emotional and fucking ate all the food.
The absolute dog. Yeah, that's
nice. I feel like I would do that. But it wouldn't be the same way. Like I think I'd be like I just have one of their things or whatever. But then you add it up to 40 days. It's like where's all the shit gone? But that actually reminds me when I was a kid, I don't know if you had so there was two areas. Two types of food that I got as gifts, which were very novel. They didn't necessarily taste great, but I thought was so cool. The first one was astronaut food. Someone went to To like NASA or whatever, and they it's like dried strawberries answered. Yeah, yeah, dude. So do anyone else remember this? Yeah. Okay, so there was that one. The other one was someone in the army. And they gave, like all these tubes of Vegemite. So it's all like army colour, like green. And inside it was veggie. Does anyone anyone know of that?
Yeah. But it was like, yeah, it's very weird because you feel like novel. Yeah, yeah. Well,
the novel food I got sent. Having relatives that live overseas, you know, you have sometimes access to different types of food Australia, you know, has its way of eating and then you've got somebody like, England, Jesse, you've lived in London. Is that right? You've lived in London. Yeah, yeah. So my cousin lives in London, and he said, I'll never forget this. This big tin, it's probably about 3040 centimetres high. And inside this tin had three different packets of flavoured popcorn. And now this is back in the diet and flavoured popcorn was not a thing. The only thing there was normal popcorn or there was that fucking colourful Asmir and juicing popcorn. That was the only two and then this was
what's the difference between the one that you're talking about and the aspirin juicing one all that Yeah,
so that they are that they were the two types but what blew blew me away was oh my god there's popcorn out there that flavours like other packets of chips, you know, you got like barbecue popcorn you've got you know, salt and vinegar flavoured popcorn. They just hadn't gone harder. Like you look now there's more popcorn on the shelves. There's more flavours you know these crazy wacky macadamia and honey or you know, salt and vinegar or popcorn is the channel that was I was so blown away by this popcorn. And I had this tin for probably five six years maybe actually maybe even more. I think it had toys in it but I was like that just reminded me every time I saw it I was like that is London England is
there's something about the the cheddar popcorn that whenever I'm eating it I connect it right to the factory there's something that's so like, bright about it and sort of filled with flavour that when I eat it I imagine like someone with a lab coat and then like processing it all and putting it on it's so delicious.
All right, let's do flavour Association. So last night I am so how did we play I've got my I've got stuck into Reese's Pieces. And I immediately thought of our trip to LA last year Sure. And it was very you know it just took me right back took me right back I thought of you first Josh that's not it is if if Josh was a flavour he's racist pieces.
Yeah, no, I agree. I think that's
just what's one thing that you ate and it takes you back to a memory
back to my grandpop sale Oh yeah, that's nice. It corned beef is a is an interesting one, isn't it? The colour isn't. My mom loves corn based but it's just what is it? It's like It's like a it's what is it cold?
Is it suicide?
Like pickling is not pickling? What's it called? Like your um,
is it silverside
What is silverside? Is that's just the type of meat isn't that what the cat The cat? Yeah, so that's the cat but then it go it's it's almost like it's acidic almost, isn't it? Like they use some sort of cross
border of cattle.
Just about I see what you mean. Like what do you call it? Bring it brining no grinding. I
think it is brining. I think rice salt
is salt cured.
cured. Yeah, yeah. cured. That's what I'm thinking because when you think of cured meat for me anyway, I think of your small strips of meat. But this is something that's like, in its in you see it in its entirety? Right. It's like a big, big thing and what would you have with it? Yes.
It'd be in a sandwich for us fresh bakers. The white bread with nuns chutney, and blah, blah. Oh, and just like little slivers, and it was the best sandwiches. I still love them to this day. That does sound good. Right now. Yeah, yeah, she said her
now she hasn't mom took that over and then she never made any this year so she's really dropped the ball there
but you can't pass the baton and not continue running. That's
what she did. She got the massive pot. And sorry, they really expensive. She said I'm not doing that again. I'm like, Well, you've taken the baton. You have to do it. Yeah. So we're gonna have to buy her a new one.
So it sounds like you're talking is
there one for you says that you love brings you back.
Yeah, it's not not as much as a few but jet planes. We leave there. I mean He I think he can get them in like Woollies, potentially but it just we used to have them when when we did road trips around New Zealand would just have them in the car and it just be the go to snack in the car. And then also LMP which is a soft drink in New Zealand as well which is what the jet plane it's it's it's literally a lolly in the shape of a plane. Sort of like a one gum. kind of odd. Oh yeah. It's so yeah,
Josh Josh is random.
I was really proud of myself then because I was like when just said what's a jet plane? Like my instinct is just to fucking jump in. That's like that. This is my son's story. You know? It's um, but I do know about jet planes. Yeah, nice. You can get them at all was just in there in the international section. Mara.
Josh, I messaged you the other way can say you need to watch Chef's Table barbecue on Oh,
yeah. I haven't watched it yet.
Dude, in that it's about it's you know, specific to barbecue and the follows a few stories of these different individuals that cook barbecue in Texas. What's my some
other really a trigger grill?
Yeah. So it's got like a few stories out of Texas a story from Australia. A guy that's got a restaurant in Sydney. Over in Mexico, dude. It's just using barbecue to cook a specific food but we the families that have passed down the the methods of cooking barbecue, it goes beyond just like knowing how to do it. It's like feeling it's like, they don't know the temperature of the oven. It's all hand they feel the top of it. And they just know. And there's this lady and it's just so they start the episode The season starts suddenly four episodes, but it starts just with the greatest person within that shard like it they've just leave watched him on best. I've watched all I'm gonna watch this tonight. I'm really pumped. Really, like, get some good food watch at the cinematography level.
Well, the thing is, so just it's a contentious issue because, like, for many like TJ, can you attest to the fact that I have been the barbecue guy around? Yeah, wanting to do smoked meats and things like that. I reckon. I've only started eating barbecue in my life since knowing you, huh? Like just watch just
was the barbecue that you start mining? barbecue American barbecue. I think I can't Yeah. snags Yeah.
Barbecue, like is the white bread
knife, no budding sausage.
No, now the barbecue was in its, it's like, it's more sort of you smoked meats and things like that. But because since I've wanted to do it, I've lived in an apartment. It's very hard to do. But I do what Mason was alluding to is, there was a Trager grill. Which is a barbecue. I wouldn't get the full size because how much meat is the full size one?
I think it fits about 60 hamburgers on it.
Yeah. 60 how much space and so there's one that's smaller. And it has it runs off power. It has a you fill up like the like wooden is it called m pellets or what does it actually they they're they are pellets Yeah, yeah, wooden pellets and you like different flavour, like types of woods. And you put them into this section like this bad sort of section. And it just smokes it doesn't actually have a flame this these triggers trigger grooves and they're smart. So they connect to your iPhone and will tell you when things are ready and they do the bit like that. It's I know Jess, you're probably thinking that this isn't like yeah, this isn't barbecue but this is legit and so I yeah, the other day
is your version of the barbecue This is like a big look
at the guy like the guy's got a massive beard who like explains how to use like this is legit this is I know that you don't think it's manly or something's cool trigger key spell it nice. Yeah.
Did you buy the G grill?
Yeah, just try grill I heard you buy one of these in your testosterone levels go up if you
like it and and so I the other the other diapers, what are you doing? And I'm on the balcony and I had a tape measure if the tried to grow would fit, and I worked out that I could have the traeger grill. But it would mean if I was if I was to be standing in front of it. I'd have to be in the apartment have the door open, which isn't a good solution, but they're around right. They're sick like imagine, you know having an expensive
as Josh Yeah,
you grant but I mean may seem like 28 yeah
So the title of pellet
grill, which is 900.
That's also USDA. So yeah, it's, it's pretty, it's pretty full on, you'd be looking at two grand for 1500 to two grand for for one of them.
But at that point, it's a hobby. It's not just about food. You can't, you can't be like, Ah, that's like if you work it out, that means you're paying X amount of meal, like the seas. It's a lifestyle thing. But what I wanted to say was, I would make plans on there, I'd be delicious. Yeah. plums, eggplant. Yeah. Dance the know what I wanted to mention what i what i wanted to aeroplane
the jet plane?
what I would love to do. I know it's going to be a while we had said that we were going to go to Dubai for 2020 World Expo and all that sort of thing. That's obviously all on hold. But when things do settle down, let's give it five years, maybe three, maybe two, two and a half? Raise it. When do you think you're actually going to properly so the first people who are going to travel? There's like a risk involved? Isn't there? Like who's gonna be there? The first like, I'm sure that Bali and Fiji like all these places will be hectic, right? Because I think that they're accessible. They're not not crazy expensive compared to like, even travelling in Australia. So I feel like that's going to be a big one. But actually, what I was going to say was, I would love when it's safe for us all as a team to go to Austin, Texas, specifically when South by Southwest is on Yes, because I've got like I had when I when I was at South by Southwest I had mate like for breakfast like I had barbecue for breakfast. And that would give it and the fact that there was a place It was like under like a an overpass thing in like the worst sort of location. But forever, like you would get barbecue for breakfast. And then they'll be like, in here is your free homemade brownie. With it like it's it's the most outrageous thing and the thing is also I will just say on the the barbecue thing. It's it's not that but if you get rid of the mic of the mac and cheese and the bread and all that sort of thing, the white bread, the white bread that or the cornbread is wild like all of those. So if you get rid of cornbread get rid of all that. So I think it can be a I mean, if you're an if you're a meat eater, if you're a veggie This is horrendous, but if you're a meat eater, the like a barbecue if you're not adding all of the barbecue sauce and stuff to snow, bad little healthy option if you have a bunch of grains and stuff. We're like oh, collard greens now. Well, I can't fucking fit the
move to the bird. You need to come at my way. Yeah, good. Nice backyard. Oh,
I feel like you would go well, young. You know what?
Yeah, so this is a thing. Yeah, I need to create these, like, does anyone
else the problem is the problem is the problem is Josh, I think, yes, you need to have had some success and found a bit of cash. Because you're the guy that will spend a whole seven hours of your day.
The thing is you like you said, there's a set and forget type of thing. But does anyone else feel the life that you have? Like, it's great, like, life is great. But then you also thinking about the the future version, where it's like, I'm gonna have like, think about the future version where it's like, yeah, I've got that set up. I've got that and I know people say like, that shit doesn't make you happy. But it does. It does
seem like there is a reason
if you've just like actually, because the thing is that I would actually prefer not to like the only reason I'm the Uber Eats guy is because like yeah, we haven't tried yet but it's like it's a convenience thing as well. It's like the from a from a cooking perspective. It's like this is what's always felt like brew I'm sure a lot of people are like this with Rebel Wilson at the moment you know, Rebel Wilson's back and slamming it like smashing, you know, kicking goals. I saw the best life it's like, when you can afford a fucking PTT come to your house, and you have like the perfect salary. What is your personal chef? No excuses anyway, at that point, right? Like why we like lately. And so that's why I feel it's like, there is an element of when you think about all of these things, it is a privilege thing to be able to have the fucking time and the energy and the education And all that sort of thing to be like, Ah, I'm just going to focus on myself. I'm just going to if I can focus on, you know,
yeah, this is a trade off, like you look at YouTube at Casey Neistat put a perfectly He's like, moved to New York 20 years ago. And New York is the place that, you know, rewards the hustle. And it was seven days a week working there just a grind, which has shifted now because it's slowed right down. And he's moved to California. And he obviously he made a lot of money, he got out of it and moved to California. But he's like, you see him from his videos talking about focusing more on his day, and just surfing and family and it's like, but it came at the expense of almost losing his marriage, and probably not hanging out with his first kid or kids and, you know, match and, and so it's like, grinding to get to get ahead to then scramble and find a happy medium. And there's a spring stay.
There is there is that sprint stage. And I guess if you if you're not careful, like I love working though, too. I think that's that's the other thing. I'm not like trying, I'm not wanting to like, get a solution where I don't have to work
for me. It's like it's not even that it's not even that it's it's a version of life that is not needing as much intensity is one that is in the building phases like a building phase,
when you want always what
exactly you want sounded like freedom and optionality.
Like if you want to go out and go for stuff in the morning, then start work at 12 you could do that. That's the dream or you just
grilling till 12
my mate and
you're just but what if Josh, you because you did do the grill thing? This is the thing about life. If there's something you think you want to do, and you haven't done it yet, but then you do it and it changes your life, nothing grillings get a change. A lot of podcasts did that for us. So,
two and a half years ago, we didn't have a podcast. And now it's like, yeah, like, you know, I'm speaking to Bri Bri this morning. And I'm just like, I've gotten to the show got screenplay Sunday, like this, this shit happening. And the thing is, it was like a small these are all these little small decisions, which then create these big changes. So I think that people sometimes play into this, like, I'll never work like it will never. There's always a time where the people who are the best barbecue is, there was a time where they bought the first barbecue, you want to mean it's just like and so like, the other thing too is it sort of plays into like ages and a little bit where it's like, Ah, what so you get to a certain age, and then all of a sudden you can't do shit. It's like, Ah, you know, like, you've had your chance if you haven't done that by this point.
Oh, yeah, it seems so fucking boring. Bullshit. You I can't wait to watch this Chef's Table. It is so good. It's because it's got all these elements. It's you know, the guy that was told he'll be nothing but a barbecue, you know, working these parents barbecue shop, and then he ends up owning one of the most popular winning like, it's so great. You're gonna No, no, no, no, this is.
Yeah. Good name. Jess, you've given me some audio, which I haven't played. Yeah. Which you wanted to play on the show? Do you need to set it up? Or? Well,
I am. I have something for to put out to the team. It's mostly for you, Josh to help you get back into the thing that you'd love to do, and which might have also changed your life in the past. Okay, so the challenge is October is Mental Health Month. And that is a it's called one foot forward. And you have to commit to a certain amount of steps.
This is good. Okay. Yes, yes, yes, yes. Yes. We spoke about this on Fridays with TJ and I were talking about, we wanted to do something in October. That was some sort of health related thing that wasn't being too silly guy. This is good. Sorry.
Okay. Okay. So this is what I'm thinking, Tommy, it's gonna be maybe a little bit hard for you to commit to too many steps. So I thought we could have three levels. I'm a big Walker, Joshua or big Walker. I think we can commit to more. And then Tommy and Mason mace. I don't know what you want to commit to. But George also wants to commit he's in. Sorry, I think we need to start our steps now. But Josh, if you play the audio, I feel like you've got your step count sorted.
We go to gronk Penny shopping and I will do our weekly walk. We go to Uncle Drew's in Abbotsford. I was walking with Pete chef at the other day to gronk Yeah, we went on a walk this morning. Had a Little isolation walk this morning Josh and I made as a pot. Yeah, I think walking is a great is a great sort of day to not walk 10 kilometres a day. I'm a walking guy walk. I haven't gone outside in weeks. The drummer the walking guy, I think break hip sang. She's like you fucking love walking. Walking hasn't changed. It's
still one foot after
the other Sunday I did 490 steps. Yes. Do you remember when you
set out to be the million steps in a month guy?
Yeah, I have a book. It's called a philosophy of walking. It's all about walking. I went for a walk this morning. Nice. It was a first in a so it was one month I haven't gone outside for a month. Lance that a huge time. I'm getting sick or I am sick. Do you think this is I haven't.
So Josh to get you out walking, how many steps you want to come. I
mean, the thing is that TJ is gonna push back straightaway when I say the number, I can feel it.
Well, I'm always the one that will try and get you to do something that you stick out because you got to learn from your mistakes. You are the million in a month, God that ruined it three days in. And we do have a business that wasn't stretching. Now, the thing is, so it's more than that you need a five hours of your day to be able to
trade your time.
So if you were to look at what
are we allowed, we're allowed to walk. We're allowed to go outside two hours a day, two
But will that change from Sunday? Oh, no.
Maybe not. That could
well, so. Okay, so say 10,000 steps a day. Yes. If, if that's set as whatever it should be doing? So that's 300,000 a month, right.
touge? Let's push it.
I want 500,000. And then I want to I want j Bay to do a parody song If I could walk 500,000 steps. On Hump Day replay. Yeah, we'll go with that. And so just when you do 500,000
Yep. It's pretty easy. I want to challenge you. How many? What are you committing to?
500,000 divided by 31?
I'd be like calc 14 13,000 13,000
divided by 100. It's 16,000 16,000.
Yeah, that's good. I was way off. Damn. Okay. Let's 16 thousands easy. So I was
your step count recently.
It's easy for a boss who just goes and does his own thing. She
can just not but so think about it. So we need to look at it from an hours perspective, I think. And so how many steps? Can you do Jess in an hour?
I have no idea. I think it today,
guys. I've just gone on a step to kilometre converter. You're gonna walk about 12.2 k every single day.
That's fine. That's that's fairly big.
writing Josh. So no,
people? I do.
Yeah, I don't have it
on right now. Cuz Why bother? I can if you just if you committed to 10,000 a day you will beat Josh because you'll probably have three days.
Yeah. Okay. Well, let's have a look. All right. Well, let's see how we go. Hey, maybe I will. Maybe I will do a million. I do. I'm hoping I will fix how you speak speak in million. This is great. All right. So when?
As a team, what if?
So what is
just quickly, so we have in? So the we've got the activity tracking app. So does this terrible. I spoke
about this on fat Fridays. It's Chuck. Charles Charles is great. So this is what
lets me use Apple Health to track.
Yep. Okay, perfect. Let me log it.
Cuz I probably need my Apple Watch. So I can see how you going. Would you want to keep it secret? No, no, I like
the idea of me. Yeah.
Hang on. How do we connect? Can you connect it on a phone as well?
I don't know if you can actually the activity thing. But we can we can work it out. That there's got to be another
shows in in the when I've signed this up already. So once it can all connect, so you're good. Everyone's good.
Yeah. Do you think tollywood and Tony, we could get them involved as well?
Yeah, we could get all of the grants if they wanted to. We could set up a thing.
Okay, great. Yeah, I'm fine. This is great. And we only want
to record the
show. As for my mental health Get up. Yeah. Perfect. I'm fired up.
I think like, have you heard what Mason? Tommy's Oh,
yeah. What's your what's, what's your step count?
Well, at least 300,000 or 310,000? Yeah,
well, I'm nice. What's an hour a day? It can be easier.
7000 steps is an hour a day?
Well, I'll do an hour a day, I'll do an hour of you're
gonna do the recommended walking, you know.
I'm the consistency guy. consistently.
Performing 10,000 should be the minimum.
When I look at, I'm just going over my past, just literally in in my Apple Health looking at my current current and so the week to date has been 1500 steps on average.
Yeah, exactly. So if I do an 1100 95
what's mine? 1500 That's nothing. I mean, Josh.
Yeah, so this is 800,000
Yeah, this is this is exactly what I'm what I'm banking on. Just consistency here, guys. 3633 that's my average. And so like, okay, here you go. On Monday, I did a big walk. I did a big walk that took me an hour. And I was knackered how many thousand 514?
Yeah, so if I have a look here, activity?
Oh, yeah, I felt my heat which I want to share with you guys. This is the thing I know what it takes to fucking train and it. And if you're not doing it consistently, or you don't ease into it, you pull out three days in like Josh Johnson. No.
No, no, no, no, no. Well, you
get the idea of running 12 k a day. I just that popped into my head, I could just run 12 K, I could run it so that the thing is I've run in ages
keeping keep in mind that the injury on the last one which it was an injury, like I like I was trying to push through and breathe like you're gonna actually hurt yourself was because I did three days of 33,000 steps. So I had I had done over 90,000 steps in three days. And the thing was, I was doing it all before work. I was doing it all before 9am. So I would get up at five and walk and I was doing
what we're outlining is not a is not an inner in work time.
To do work meetings, you can do calls you can you know,
True. True. I can probably take my MacBook while editing while walking. Just can do it.
It's a little bit harder, isn't it?
Yeah, I think we need to start doing walking meetings from here on in.
Yeah, I think that'd be a lot. So I'm just having a look at the big days that I have had these say did
you exempt exemptions? Have
you just press awake into the house and then go
through if we wanted to, if we want to automatically track our walking into the one foot one foot forward? We need to be using a Fitbit which is out of the question and so leave Strava Oh, this is great. Josh go to your your you can Matt Oh cranially
see average steps for each year. So what's the 2020 average steps for the year for Australia?
Thank you only 2300 I think
but then how do I go back?
across. swipe across? That's not unless you've got that define that? I think
it's it doesn't have all the data that's so annoying. I would have loved that.
Because brain daily average for years 714 to
three months is 3234
Yeah, my sister. She asked my anyway, I love this guys. Let's take this admin off here. And commit to the walking from October.
One bonus point if you start early on No.
Absolutely not. It is look old Columbia as well. So we're all just a one year old be removed until the nose really begins to get stretching Josh.
Yeah. Can you get the foam roller? actually starting they
actually starting to walk before?
Why don't we all have a health expert that's like a coach. I'll contact Laura. She'll be my Laura and mine. So Craig,
pay me can I hey,
you can pitch Yeah, yeah, that's a coat. Yeah, eggs, pizza coach and who would suggest having a swim. Great. So we have our coaches. Craig Harper for TJ Laura for me. Just Has staff and serves has paid Shepard and so
on. So how are we going to get them though that this is the issue?
Well, that's just your problem. Yeah, that's your problem. I've got mine sorted.
I just messaged Laura. We're gonna work out what we need from them isn't
I wonder what
really fits. I'm gonna put my watch on her wrist.
I would love a pump up video from pate. So you know, shaila the booth or whatever his name is saying just do it. I hate doing that. Yeah.
By the end by the end I'm gonna have Bree in the car filming on the side. Like I'm David Goggins. Okay.
All right, guys. This is fun. I'm fired up. Isn't it funny? I've even done the steps I feel better. I feel faster the light back feels well.
