It's Hump Day replay.
replay today replay the show about the daily talk show where we look back at some highlights from the week of shows but also go further back into the archives. And today we've got the usual cast. We've got grace Mason and Jess. And we're joined by the daily talk shows intern, the logo designer and the key ring cult leader 3d do.
Unknown Speaker 0:39
Its many. I like that title. The Karen calculator. Okay, the squishy. I like that. I created the key ring. I didn't create the cult though. I never I've never shoved one at my
Unknown Speaker 0:51
I can't I can't say I can lead that.
Unknown Speaker 0:53
I still haven't watched that episode.
Mr. 97 0:56
But you don't need it's audio only. It's audio only. Yeah, he
does. I'm actually doing
Unknown Speaker 1:03
well i mean he's told me about this story so many times that I felt like I was always there but yeah I needed listen properly
yeah well Episode 14 Josh talks about the fact that he when he was a kid he put a squeegee appease us
Mr. 97 1:21
my first question when I heard that was what end I'm going to handle Are you going to handle or are you going to handle
Unknown Speaker 1:34
it? What's he doing like squeezing inside the bowels?
But I guess if you do if you if you went the other end, you could hold on to the handle and be a better grip.
Mr. 97 1:49
Yeah, it would be Yeah, economics.
Unknown Speaker 1:52
Way too much.
Basically deal so they they wanted to make some money. And the idea of a keyring in the shape of a squeegee came up.
Unknown Speaker 2:04
Yeah, it was an industrial design student at the time. I'm now I can now call myself an industrial designer because I've graduated and I have a job and I'm employed.
Unknown Speaker 2:13
I thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
So you contacted the show, and basically said, I'm you man, I can make this squeegee keyring for
Unknown Speaker 2:20
Yeah, I listened to the episode at the gym. I was on the treadmill. And I was like, Nah, these guys, these guys have no clue what they're talking about. So I said, I'll educate them.
What was the main thing that they said that made you think they had no clue?
Unknown Speaker 2:35
Well, they're like, Oh, wait, like we could put this into production. We can get like Josh was talking about, like, moulding, like what, what this moulding is and then I think Tommy was trying to explain 3d printing and like it, it just hurt. Because to invest in a mould cost right away, that's like that's like $10,000 at least even for something not small. You send it to China and get China to make it. So it's like now I'll give These guys some intelligence, some pure intellect and sent them in that night after I got home from the gym. Yeah, and then the rest of the rest is literally history.
Unknown Speaker 3:09
BIG MEDIA COMPANY 3:10
relationship with 3d deal started I would like to say in January
he reached out nice email.
BIG MEDIA COMPANY 3:15
Hi there Tommy and Josh. My name is Dylan from Toronto, Canada. He says he's an industrial product design student here in Toronto, said we do 3d printing here in school for projects and models in capitals. I bought a 3d printer. He said so if you guys still wanted to pursue the squeegee idea, I'm your guy. Maybe there's a trip down to Australia to hand them off in person with their dad love it. I think good. Good price slots the moment from a Canada Josh I took your advice and checked out Air Canada flights. I'm currently looking at booking a flight near the end of April in capitals I'm committed to making it happen. Three day deal. So my tomorrow,
Unknown Speaker 3:55
3d deal fucking Melbourne.
Unknown Speaker 3:58
Come in and trade a deal. He's got gifts.
those gifts were earrings. So how many did you make? Did you make fun? Um, oh, he's got one Mason's holding one up.
Unknown Speaker 4:11
Yeah, I made I made five of the one that Mason had. And then I made one for myself. One for Tommy, one for Josh, one for Mason, like personalised ones with our names on and then I think there's a gronk one, somewhere at the office somewhere like an orange one. So 10, nine, nine or 10 in total?
Mr. 97 4:31
Well, I mean, we so currently the gronk one is used for a cabinet. The kafer Oh, yeah. And there was those a little bit of discussion earlier in the year around Yeah. Jess using the orange. The orange
Unknown Speaker 4:51
option. Nice. Oh, was it just put upon me.
So Josh basically wanted you to use it as a bit of promo Work,
Unknown Speaker 5:00
I'd have a separate office key and I'd use it I think but my key chain is like nice as it is like there's already too many things on it. It was just bulky. I'm sorry. I don't mean to.
Unknown Speaker 5:12
No, that's that's fair, though.
Unknown Speaker 5:14
And also is quite broad. It's totally fair.
Unknown Speaker 5:16
Yeah. Well, I mean, so also when you're driving
Unknown Speaker 5:19
a lot of just Oh, that's great. Yeah,
Mr. 97 5:21
that is, I mean, at the next office, I would love to have keycard access.
I have the great yeah,
Mr. 97 5:28
maybe or even or even like, I mean, here we go. Even even tap tapping into with your phone would be great. I don't know if Apple supports it yet. But maybe do you could design the card, the swipe card for us to use Oh yeah, no, I can do that. Cuz it's like NFC. Right. So you could just make a some sort of sticker and then what's NFC that could go on? You believe it's called I believe it's neat Field Communication since what you what your phone uses when you tap and pay on your phone and what cards you As well see, it's like contactless, you
Unknown Speaker 6:01
know, wait. So do what do you? Do you design the CAD like the 3d CAD stuff for the products or like what do you actually do?
Unknown Speaker 6:12
For the squeegee I did everything like I did sketches of it initially to figure it out and then built it in a CAD software and then sliced that up into 3d printing software, printed it and then sent it off. But for like for my job, I use a combination of like different Adobe programmes like Photoshop, Illustrator, and then CAD modelling programmes such as Blender keyshot and SolidWorks. So I'm doing designs of stuff like on paper and then translating that into a physical, physical and air quotes, like a 3d model, basically, in the SolidWorks.
Well, what sort of stuff you making in your job?
Unknown Speaker 6:56
Well for the company, the company that I work for own A couple other smaller companies. So for example, one of the items that we produce is produce display tables for ethnic markets. So for a lot of Chinese and Indian grocery stores, here in Toronto and Canada locally, we produce high end produce tables, which are that's the more mundane boring side of things. And on the more interesting side of things we produce, in our designing parts, in conjunction with designers at companies like Ford and Porsche, to do body panels for their supercar lineups for the Ford, the Ford GT. If you take a look at that car, all the carbon fibre on the exterior of the car except for the rims, is manufactured, designed and produced that our company
It's amazing. I mean, just has had a few issues with her car and I'm getting bird
Unknown Speaker 8:00
That's just cleaning issues.
As far as internships goes, that is a pretty, pretty full on thing to do to, you know, travel halfway across the globe to spend four months at a production company where you didn't really know who the people were or anything.
Unknown Speaker 8:13
Yeah, you're telling me what did you What about
what about you, Jess? Oh, Grace, like, did you guys do internships? I did so many. Yeah, today.
Unknown Speaker 8:26
I interned at cavallier. Have you heard of that? It's like Cirque du Soleil. But with a you know about a deal. It's a Canadian thing. Yeah. It's Cirque du Soleil with horses. And they do tricks on the back of horses and have them like bolting across the stage and that type of thing. So I interned there when it came to Australia or to Melbourne.
Mr. 97 8:47
And what did you do? What was the actual internship?
Unknown Speaker 8:50
And that was more, that was more promotion and just getting that was literally my very first one. So to be honest, I probably didn't contribute too much, but kind of Just getting what did I do, I had a lot of flyers that I needed to get out, I dealt with their PR agency alongside the marketing coordinator. I, when media came down, I'd be with the marketing coordinator. Just kind of getting a steer for what they did and how media interviews worked and that type of thing, which was super exciting at the time. Yeah, it was really fun. It was such a different one, like just, I did their launch event as well. So that was, you know, someone who was wanting to get into events and PR and that type of thing was like, this is a lie. But realistically, I wasn't doing hard work behind the scenes. Um, yeah. And then obviously I do agency internships, but nothing like you do.
Right you gross.
Unknown Speaker 9:50
I wouldn't call it an internship but but in my in a gap year I took I went over to the Dominican Republic and you get to get to volunteer and Working kind of the hospitals as a private and public and so I was exposed to different surgeries and then sometimes I'd asked you to help out so it was kind of like an internship even though I didn't have any cheese skills or anything help had to like hold certain equipment or pass the doctor certain equipment actually do anything. But yeah, it was kind of cool. Like it just experience there and kind of like hospitals and things like that. So yeah,
Mr. 97 10:24
you were telling me the other day that so we went out, we've got we've got a worm farm outside. And so Dad, dad loves a worm farm and he opens it up every time he's like, man, I can't believe how crazy the worms are. And anyway, so I wanted to go check them and I asked grace if she would come with me to look at them and sort of open them up because they're all at the top because it's to the soils to wet and then grace you were telling me about a story because Jackie just everywhere. And you were telling me a story about how you saw maggots. Yeah, yeah.
So in 101,
Unknown Speaker 11:02
it's a bit a bit of a disgusting topic. So sorry, everyone go for it. But in some of the diabetic patients, especially in our, in our
Unknown Speaker 11:15
Ma, I can't handle this. Do it.
Unknown Speaker 11:20
Now keep going. I want to hear
Unknown Speaker 11:26
so we would have to every morning when we're in the public hospital, we'd have to help clean out the wounds. And there were there were maggots in the wound. Just burying and then more. Yes. And then around and then babies and stuff. It was just Yeah, a whole lot. Yeah, it was. It was too much.
Unknown Speaker 11:48
Oh my okay. Two questions. How did I get in there? And like, how are they surviving with this? No, Eli?
Unknown Speaker 11:56
yet. I think they're getting there because the like sanitary Haitian stuff was so poor in these areas. And this was the public hospital so the people coming here were the poorest of the poor So unfortunately, they didn't have you know, and the ability to clean their wounds or keep them clean or keep them free from disease or bacteria. I don't really know how they survived there but they just lived off the tissue. I'm pretty sure Holly yeah
Unknown Speaker 12:23
that's fucking that's something
Unknown Speaker 12:28
people will losing limbs and stuff because the there's just too many maggots in there. Sorry. That's fine Mason
Mr. 97 12:38
for bringing up though. Yeah, well, that's okay. Maybe maybe Moving along to our first
Well, I mean, do you obviously some memorabilia brought you brought you over to Australia to do your internship. you design the squeegee which we've covered but boys love memorabilia, and I love anything to do with themselves. So that is true sherfane there has been a few other times where they've talked about getting merged and getting memorabilia, so it came up again this week with a new idea but before that, here's a few other times that they've talked about having some memorabilia.
I like the idea of doing runs of certain things. You could
Unknown Speaker 13:24
actually get a squeegee on a keyring
Unknown Speaker 13:29
oh my god little squeegee
Unknown Speaker 13:32
with the dog so it's pretty funny.
Forget your daily talk show hoodies the daily talk show
BIG MEDIA COMPANY 13:38
a hand knitted beanies. This is the the most amount of the daily talk show merge we've had in one sitting and I don't think it's even two extra what point can you start doing memorabilia? I think we're six months off.
Unknown Speaker 13:53
What do you think?
Unknown Speaker 13:55
memorabilia. memorabilia, what does it mean? memorable liriope memorable, to be memorable how at
this? We could start pacing up and displaying in a little box like a little sort of m&m style of brick. pieces of the daily talk show studio. So it comes in like this nice frame. It's got a plaque that says yeah, the daily talk show Studio 2019 to 2021.
Unknown Speaker 14:25
Yeah, I love that idea.
Unknown Speaker 14:33
Absolutely, version two.
I love that bit when when Tommy's pitching the idea of the wall, you can see it if you watch the video. I think we put a game you can say it in Josh's eyes as soon as he says cabinet or like glass box. Joschka?
Mr. 97 14:54
Yeah. Any anything that's framed and that goes up. Yeah, yeah. mean the one thing that I guess needs to be discussed is how much you're going to pay for a piece of wood.
Unknown Speaker 15:08
It depends. I guess
Unknown Speaker 15:14
it depends on if it's pine or hardwood as well.
Unknown Speaker 15:18
Unknown Speaker 15:22
what the difference Yeah,
Unknown Speaker 15:23
cuz she did the carpentry
Unknown Speaker 15:24
one's been around for hundreds of years the others just, you know, manufactured.
It's pallet wood. So Jess, have you got any memorabilia?
Unknown Speaker 15:36
I've got so many and one in particular I thought might be of interest to the daily talk show with the the wood giveaway. It's this. And sorry, this is a piece of the Berlin Wall and it's in a nice little plastic container. keeping it nice and safe. So I thought we could maybe do the same.
That's great. How much did you pay for that? Right?
Unknown Speaker 16:01
It says on the back 5.95 years,
Mr. 97 16:10
minutes look at it. These things are like, you know, memorabilia is hard to put a price on it. So we thought we'd put a game together. It's a little bit trash or treasure vibe. And so we've got a list of memorabilia from famous people that we want you guys to guess the price off. So what I'll do is I will read out the what the item is, and a little description of it and you guys have to say if it's trash or treasure, and then give me the price.
Unknown Speaker 16:44
memorabilia, what does it mean? memorable? illyria memorable, to be memorable?
It doesn't explain the game at all. I'm very glad that you explained to you you explained the guy in there.
Unknown Speaker 16:58
What are you defining is trash. Like I said, No man tool.
Mr. 97 17:01
Okay, so I've actually I've pulled out the outrageous one so I haven't really thought this through but let's say under trash on the trash is under 10 grand. Okay, so it's all trash but anything above 10 grand is treasure. Anything under 10 grand is trash. Yeah, that's the half baked game. It's so good. All right. All right, the first one. Britney Spears used pregnancy test the casino, the same casino bought the test and it was found at the rubbish bin at a hotel.
You heard joking.
Unknown Speaker 17:34
Trash or treasure? That's huge
treasure. Yeah, I'm saying a casino bought it. I'm gonna say 20 grand.
Unknown Speaker 17:44
I'm gonna say trash.
Mr. 97 17:45
Okay, but I do
Unknown Speaker 17:47
unsanded 10 grand
Unknown Speaker 17:51
I'm gonna guess 35 35,000
Unknown Speaker 17:54
Jess? Um, I won't get treasure. I
Mr. 97 17:58
don't Yeah, It's trash $5,100 for us to pregnancy test. Oh my God.
Unknown Speaker 18:05
That is sorry just a massive invasion of privacy. It's disgusting.
Unknown Speaker 18:10
It is disgusting. Yeah,
Mr. 97 18:10
it's so yeah, number two Niall horns and it says last time half eaten toast trash or treasure. Apparently he did not finish his Vegemite toast after appearing on sunrise.
What do we reckon? After appearing on something yeah that's where he gets division on against
Unknown Speaker 18:27
treasure surely I feel like one direction fans would pay a lot of money for it now Horan
Mr. 97 18:33
stuff over your over 10 grand for
Unknown Speaker 18:36
probably like 50 grand.
Oh my god. All right. They would 280 bucks.
Unknown Speaker 18:49

All right, well, that was
Unknown Speaker 20:51
memorabilia. What does it mean? memorable, illyria memorable, to be memorable,
memorable. Can I
Unknown Speaker 21:00
just say sorry, just saying memorable lira is almost similar to the jandals. The andals
memorable area could be another one of Josh's sayings, but something that he says all the time, which he hasn't actually said for a while he's put it in the calendar. And this week, he, he sort of brought it back because he wanted everyone to have something to look forward to. And he had a bit of an idea for what we could do.
BIG MEDIA COMPANY 21:30
We live stream a lot of the shows and we play this song. Yeah, it's
become a bit of a theme song for us, Luke Melville.
BIG MEDIA COMPANY 21:39
I think that's that's the artist. Right yet loucon? Wouldn't it be great, how about this episode? This is what we're fucking doing. I've just come up with it. So we've got Ryan Shelton on for Episode 1000 of the daily talk show. Yeah, let's get a live performance of El montay. And so Lucas set up at He's home and we could strain like a DJ style and he could be
Unknown Speaker 22:03
driving that'd be cry
BIG MEDIA COMPANY 22:07
for everyone to look forward to.
So EP thousand we talked about a little bit with Leon Shogun when he was on that's February nine. So we've got Leon sjogrens rooftop that's locked in. Ryan Shelton's locked in and if we could get Luke to DJ, you know we support young creatives here at The Daily talk show. That'd be amazing. Well, I mean, I I did reach out to him his personal Facebook
Mr. 97 22:34
and sent him a message. No confirmation.
Unknown Speaker 22:42
Unknown Speaker 22:43
Yeah, no, do a shoddy Canada that will show you guys Canada
Unknown Speaker 22:46
2023. Yeah, when I travel
Unknown Speaker 22:49
the show. You have to go all the you have to do an entire Canadian tour. You start off in British Columbia, West Coast and you go all the way to the east.
Mr. 97 22:56
I mean, one one thing that I guess Everyone's gonna look forward to is an announcement that was made on the show last week. And we thought we better mentioned it. Yeah.
BIG MEDIA COMPANY 23:09
The thing that we can promise you is required to have a successful podcast is show up on day one and release a podcast. It's re re looking at the launch, like to how to do the perfect launch. It's got to be at this certain time and three weeks before you need to do this and then you need to frack and it's all made up the guys guys. I'm not actually fucking joking on the 20th George and I will be starting a new podcast, screenplay Sunday's the first week. We are joined by
Unknown Speaker 23:48
BIG MEDIA COMPANY 23:51
this can be the one person and shout God like we love the launch. And we love.
Unknown Speaker 24:06
Love a launch love a promise. So that's huge that is.
Unknown Speaker 24:10
Oh, yeah, I was dying of laughter listening to that
which is exciting new podcast on the BIG MEDIA COMPANY network screenplay Sunday. Yeah. Everyone go and subscribe to that. Definitely.
Mr. 97 24:26
I mean, a lot of a lot of promises were made. And a lot of them are pending availability. So starting to expect those promises made, you know,
yeah. To be fulfilled. But
Mr. 97 24:40
But still, we were talking to you the other day. And you you mentioned that you might be starting your own your own podcast.
Unknown Speaker 24:50
I have technically technically Yes, I have. I said that I might have been just thank you.
Unknown Speaker 24:57
Get the applause and everything. I feel
That's huge. I mean, you are the announcement King, you famously announced that you had written an entire book. When Josh Yeah, was trying to rewrite that golden book. So, and there was about a 30 day later. Yeah.
BIG MEDIA COMPANY 25:14
So deal being completely honest. Yeah. If it's a very personal announcement that's exciting for you and not for
Unknown Speaker 25:21
Unknown Speaker 25:24
I'm going to find it hard.
BIG MEDIA COMPANY 25:27
What is your announcement?
Unknown Speaker 25:28
So I took my idea to do a short form process video of how it came from being this college student living in a basement to living in Australia, and actually wrote a book about it. And near the end of August with the code, it's, it's called I'm still figuring it out by Alan Turing. That's it. That's that's the name of it.
BIG MEDIA COMPANY 25:56
job finding is phenomenal.
Unknown Speaker 26:00
You could have done
Unknown Speaker 26:00
these could be stolen near an answer.
Unknown Speaker 26:04
I put Josh in the ground on that one.
Unknown Speaker 26:07
And and I did it with one messed up thumb too. He had. He had both working hands. No excuses.
So that was a big announcement. So yeah, so tell us about the podcast, what's the go.
Unknown Speaker 26:18
So the the podcast is called the process. And it's done with myself and my roommate from school, Zach, that I lived with for the last two years. We're in the same school programme. So we graduated, we graduated school together. And it's basically us kind of sitting down and talking through our experiences with design school personal projects as freelance industrial designers, and kind of navigating the trials and tribulations of the creative process. And like how you go from the beginning of an idea to the final execution. And it was it was something that we wanted to have when we started design school because it was this huge, intimidating, like really pretentious thing of starting design school. And then we got there and we realise it was totally different than any preconceived notion that we had before. So it's basically us just like shooting the breeze and going going through that. Kind of like reminiscing our experiences, but also talking about the current experiences for the current personal projects that were going on the work that I'm doing, he works at a hotrod shop, so a whole bunch of stuff.
Mr. 97 27:37
That's so awesome. And so what, how many how many episodes you recorded so far?
Unknown Speaker 27:43
We released Episode Four today. So right. So that's 444 of hopefully, hopefully many.
Mr. 97 27:53
Great and so what's been the hardest thing for it so far?
Unknown Speaker 27:57
Honestly, the hardest thing was understanding the Adobe Audition and interface that was the most tricky part. Because I know I know Illustrator and Photoshop like the back of my hand and then go into this one was just a bit more different and then still like understanding the whole, like the whole RSS feed and everything because I'm not I'm not a huge tech person. I like I like my laptop and I like my iPad and all that but i'm not i'm not a hardcore like link to this and all that stuff like Mason is. But the the RSS stuff has been tricky understanding the Adobe Audition stuff has been a bit tricky. Other than that, though, like most of it is, I'm taking a lot of the experiences that I had sitting next to Mason like as he's like typing out, show notes and stuff and then even the way that you were thinking may so I'm like, Okay, this is what Mason would do. So I'm channelling, channelling. I'm channelling you in in my brain.
Yeah, that's generally the filter for everything. at BMC what would Mason do?
Unknown Speaker 29:05
Good, good, safe filter to have I think.
Now that's awesome. I mean, that's the whole thing that was talked about it on the show on Thursday about like, the biggest challenge is starting a podcast and continuing the podcast is, oh, yeah, the only way you can do it is just show up, do an episode. Do it again. Do it again. Because eventually something will stick.
Unknown Speaker 29:24
Like we we did our first episode last Wednesday. And then I listened to the the daily talk show the next day driving to work. And it was the episode talking about how they started the the podcast. I was like, Man that that came at literally the perfect time. Yeah. So it was it was great. I feel like I had to, I feel like I had to especially after doing the internship there for four months and I remember I was at I was at a bar with scooter Derek for a bit and he was talking about like, so this is what you should do if you're going to start a podcast like frame it this way. distribute it this way. All this that and the other and you He was a couple beers deep and I was a couple beers deep at that point too. But still it was like that that conversation stuck with me and I can't escape it now it's it's a part of my life like the whole podcasting thing. So
Mr. 97 30:15
what are you most excited for with it
Unknown Speaker 30:18
I'm just excited to see where it goes like, see who we can talk to because now that we've graduated and now that we're we're in a different circle of people in the industrial design industry in Canada, we've got even myself I've got personal contacts that I didn't have last year at this time. So excited to get to talk to other people but also get like some of my friends on who are out and who are working and just to like catch up with them but also get their take on it however many months after after graduation, excited to see where it goes see who we can talk to And just like the learning process of the whole thing, like, publishing it, distributing it, doing the artwork for it. I don't do the artwork for it. That's um, my roommate Zack does it but uh, we're just trying to try to make it cool and make it our own. So, yeah,
that's right. Thank you. Oh, I mean, exciting. To finish up. This week was Josh's birthday. We should, alleging that it was his 30th birthday. Huge. Happy 30th 30th.
And you mentioned scooter Derek just before a good friend of the show. great friend of Josh is in the daily talk show. He surprised Josh with something pretty, pretty cool.
Unknown Speaker 31:45

Unknown Speaker 32:05
doing the siren Stop. Stop it.
BIG MEDIA COMPANY 32:09

No, no, you're gonna get a phone call.
So Josh is young to experience. scooted Derek. In Collingwood bellowing out Happy Birthday through.
Unknown Speaker 32:35
Mr. 97 32:55
adored I think you don't cry. You're crying
Unknown Speaker 33:00
Got a bit of salsa just acknowledge scooter Derek has a good singing voice through a megaphone.
Sounds pretty good was good, wasn't it?
Mr. 97 33:08
Yeah. I mean if you want to. Yeah. If you want to watch the video, it's up on the daily talk show Instagram. Yep.
But a bit of a bit of Josh appreciate appreciation. I mean deal. I'm sure he taught you a lot. Well, yeah. Well, you're over here. I've learned they taught me a lot.
Unknown Speaker 33:27
Ah, man, like the person and the designer and like, the creative that I am today would be so much less if I hadn't met Josh. And that's like, that's not even trying to toot his horn, his horn, but like the way that he thinks just how methodical he is, how generous he is, like with his time, this guy invited a complete stranger from the other side of the world to stay in his apartment for like a week and like Barely asked any questions along the way. And for that I am eternally grateful for one thing though, other than the fact that I met I love that I love Josh with all my heart. And he's he's taught me literally so much like the only reason that I know Premiere Pro today is because of him ultimately. But one thing about Josh is he likes he likes to say that he's the Great Ocean Road guy. This this is this this is brought up a couple couple weeks ago or something. And and I remember in my last two weeks there, Josh was like, Yeah, no, well, we'll go to the Great Ocean Road we'll go see the 12 apostles and everything because I was leaving in two weeks and God knows I wasn't going to be back for a while. And basically, I left Australia without doing the Great Ocean Road and seeing the 12 apostles I went I went down Great Ocean Road because I took the I took the bus out to the to the otways and whatnot. It was Got last, but never never made it as far as the 12 apostles, so I'm gonna hold Josh to that when I come back that, that we do a 12 apostles trip.
Unknown Speaker 35:12
I'm gonna be so disappointed and disappointed in himself.
Unknown Speaker 35:16
I know he is but but i don't i don't blame him for it. It was it was a busy last couple of weeks and he was he was just real frazzled at that point in time, right? Yeah. But, but other than that, other than that, like, I hold Josh in the highest regard like, I can't say enough nice things about him. I probably can but like just the just like the just the pure generosity of that guy and just such a quirky guy. Yes, so quirky. Each time you listen to hear him talk, you're like, you kind of want to slap him but uh, you also want to hug him in the in just certain things that he says he's like, we're going to start a podcast, another one, another one and it's going to start next week. Yeah. Looks like I want to slap you but you're awesome. But like that's that's just how creative and just how bizarre but also like, you look at not gonna compare into Steve Jobs but he's just that much more of a forward thinker. Yeah, and that's not to say that Tommy Tommy isn't because Tommy's also absolutely incredible. But yeah, that's that's my Josh rant. Josh. Josh sorry.
Unknown Speaker 36:27
Unknown Speaker 36:30
that you summarised him. Well,
yeah, yeah. I think he workI definitely the way that Josh like, I mean, I've sort of mentioned that this week to him he he turned a really challenging year for the business into one that is making all the staff around him thrive. And that's like, That's crazy. That's super incredible. So
Unknown Speaker 36:50
that's that's the thing like he's he's great at identifying people's strengths, and then delegating in a way that it pushes them To be more and more creative and more and more dominant in that aspect that our strength.
Yeah, that's so true. You know, I remember the first time I ever worked with him he, he asked me a question like he asked me what we should do for something. There's some video. And even that blew my mind because I've never been like from from someone that you look up to or do something that you've just met to put the trust in this kid, or whatever.
Mr. 97 37:26
Yes. sponsibility stuff.
Yeah, yeah, he's, yeah, he wants to put that responsibility on you and make you develop, who cares so much about the team and the development of everyone around him?
Unknown Speaker 37:37
He really does. And that was even even when I was in Australia, like maybe the third week of May last year. Right before we got the sign put together mace. I remember Josh, Josh came up and he was like, so do you think you can get a get a sign made for the for the podcasting, like, if you think he can sort that out? I'm like, I know five. people in this country, but I'll do my best. And lo and behold, like we figured it out and but like it freaked me out right away like those guys putting so much trust in me for something that you mean, that means so much to them. Right? Like the show means so much to them and then for this giant icon of a symbol for them to put on a wall, and even then just to invest that money into it. I was like Jesus, like you're either an idiot or you trust me a lot. And, and but it worked out because like he was like you You can do this. I know you can do this. And even though I maybe wasn't aware of that at the time, it still worked out. Yeah. It took Josh saying, Do you think he can sort that out? And I'm not about to be the intern that says no, I can't do that. I'm like, I'll find a way I'll make it work and we made it work.
Yeah, it's like any bit of self doubt you have somehow he just convinces you to not Have it yeah, it How does it feel now seeing seeing the branding everywhere and on jumpers and on Matt de velas chest and that sort of thing.
Unknown Speaker 39:09
Let me tell you it is the strangest thing like to think that there's people on the other side of the world at this very moment that are probably wearing something that like some little graphic vector that I made on a computer. Yeah. And then now people are wearing it people have it on their laptops. The fact that it's the people have it on like, on their the like the podcast artwork on the phone screen. The fact that it's it's just gone everywhere is crazy. Like, it still blows my mind. And even though like it becomes a prevalent thing in the design industry where your design gets made, and then it gets distributed everywhere and hundreds of thousands of people buy it because it's some dinky little product or whatever. I still find that really interest thing and just is really gratifying because anyone anyone could have made the logo Josh could have made the logo if he was so inclined. And for me to be able to have that and to be able to contribute that little piece to this giant amalgamation of stuff is really is really, really cool.
Mr. 97 40:22
Well, I mean, you did such an epic job in it. And thank you coming coming all the way from Canada, to Melbourne to hang out and and do your internship. Yeah, for that long is a is a pretty incredible thing. So I mean, thank you. Yeah, yeah, you've done you've done some amazing stuff. So and if
anyone had lunch, if there are any new listeners who have been listening in the last year or so, should go back and listen from episode around about 340 I think it was to about 435. That was sort of the 3d deal era. Really good stuff. There's so much great stuff that happens in there. And yeah, and yeah, you You have a great element of the shot. And thank
Unknown Speaker 41:03
you so nice.
The first time we've actually properly met and it feels like we know each other because I've yet seen you and that's a bit wait. Yeah.
Unknown Speaker 41:12
That feels like we should just go down to the to the pub and get an idea and just take it take the afternoon off. Yeah, that'd be nice. I tried. I tried to do that with mace. I bought Mesa beer once when we went out and he was like,
Unknown Speaker 41:26
I bought it. I bought him a Corona too.
Mr. 97 41:28
Yeah, yeah, absolutely. I mean, yeah, yeah. Just
Unknown Speaker 41:34
that's that's respectable I respect.
Well, thanks so much for staying up late. And doing the podcast still, and hopefully we can do it again. sometime soon.
