Thanks for having me back.
On and the nicest gronk going around, and a podcaster and a filmmaker, basil, Jared. Oh,
and you've got a lovely looking background.
Yeah. Yesterday when we had a bit of a catch up, you had some pizza posters, but you've taken them down for the show. And you've got, Jay Bay's HDR in big letters behind you really like
most welcome. It doesn't look as good on zoom as it does on like a nice camera. But look, I had a crack, you know, it's
The spaces in the bay would have been hard. You know? Yes. Yeah. Especially especially you
terrible scissors like i'm not i'm not equipped for arts and crafts. Crap.
Every play is all about having a crack, but you've got it. That's exactly what it's about. And also of course welcoming Jess and Mason to the show.
So basil and grace you guys have had a bit of a sports team feud. Yes, you both go for different. Oh, here we go.
Ready for the Melbourne weather?
Plus headphones. But here we go looks more like eagles to temper.
your team's doing better than monitor environment site. Well done. Thank you. Thank you.
Yeah Alan, do you have George?
Give us a fun fact.
So you're up here
so Who's your favourite player? Well, the reason why bad for what the West Coast Eagles is Ben cousins, but he is subsequently broke my heart so I find that eternally hard to reconcile. But as as a young boy, when Benny won the rising star, I was like, Ah, that's it. I'm all in stuff. callingwood and kalten, who I just buried for at the time. What about the SL
try to die for the Eagles
wanna Oh, yes, yes. Yeah young say that we went we went to school with those boys actually. Oh, I'm really good friends with Scott. Really? Yeah, yes.
Yeah I haven't spoken to him spoken to I haven't seen him in a while. But I yeah, we still catch up.
Yeah, we were in a wedding together the other year really
gonna live together at the end of last year looking at houses Yeah. What?
What happened? Because he's just built a he's just built a couple of houses in delong and so him and his girlfriend have now moved into that so it's only gonna be short term. So I thought Nah. Like, I'll stay in my apartment for the time.
All right. Yeah, I mean, JP you're also wearing Yeah, mom.
Some sports memorabilia, so I've gone full vintage I've got a vintage Arsenal hat, great Arsenal yet it's like a kid's hat. Almost pretty funny. Got it from an op shop and I've got a vintage Man United jacket which actually weird like all the time so that's not that's nothing new. But the shirt I'm wearing is a sucker is shit from about 2005 or 2006 it's it is actually a very cool shirt that he made he was actual shirt. Yeah, so Wow, gosh, that cos
she did it had a family friend who was the physio for
Fullam and ice. I hate to fool them stuff but then I guess he also did stuff for the sucker. Isn't that something? So? Just got a bunch of shirts. Oh, that's exciting. That's so cool. I remember saying the Socceroos in 2005 for the World Cup qualifier that was that was the right match go
down to penalty shootouts.
Allah we Sisco the way
A great day that was just like Yes. It's so exciting. I didn't know you were just into sport to be honest JB
I wouldn't have seen it before I'm I've got an arsenal
a great little Arsenal scarf that I got when I went to what's the stadium called? Emirates Emirates. Yep. And
a little fact that I found that while I was there, yep. Was Arsenal was the first team to be broadcasted in 3d on the TV. Oh, really? Has that? costed the game against I believe menu in 3d 20. TIG. Remember 3d. I remember when 3d TVs were coming out? It was like, the biggest thing. Yeah, he was gonna have one. Yeah, really? Yeah. Yeah. The TV not kitchens to 3d tape. Do you
know what? Yes, right glasses. Yeah.
I haven't noticed it. yet.
so Jess, where's your sports gear? This is a sporting podcast now
my phospho Desi
sorry northern hustlers yeah so we um number 10
a shout out to the team
Not gonna lie
and that's what play basketball when we go and get a coffee. Yeah when we're not in isolation Yeah. And I don't do much I kind of just like that people give me the ball and then I throw it to someone else and what do you know what where do you play the sort of like date that's basketball.
know, but this this is I'm saying like, I'm not that good at dribbling and I'm not about shooting Sorry, I'm I kind of just the in between person when other people need breaks, I think off the court. So I like that was me too. Like I I I was either I was either a three point
shooter or zero point shooter, and the only time I scored a layup was was I ran up but then someone down the court actually found someone so I'll celebrate.
Oh, and it was just cancelled. There's like not
only laugh I've ever scored and three disables all the time. But you know, you just you got it. Yeah. You know, you listen to basketball, Mason,
all the boys to come and play for this team because it's mixed basketball. And you can come
I'm awful at basketball now. Try. I'm five foot tall.
Probably not bringing the ball down the court. That's, that's Yeah, I'll just throw through a few elbows out. I mean,
that's what about you. I mean, you're in the you're in the gym. I believe you are. You're into the sauna as well. What sort of that was
Sort of sports do you get into I played everything growing up I have like a somewhere here like a box of trophies but it was it was not for good stuff just for like weed stuff like Coxon of the year and cadets, but it was Coxon of,
of a canoe not an actual boat like Nicole said
that the little guy that sits at the front right and just yells
this is just me at the back of the canoe with a tiny little recruit up the front so i don't know how i got Coxon of the just not letting young kids die I guess
I played a bunch of like probably cricket is the biggest thing that I played. And then I just flirted with winter sports and never really found my
Yeah, true love I think for the winter. Yeah, no, no.
A messed up hip which Jess
I have like a disease in my my right femur it's like a hereditary thing. So essentially like the the theme of like dies it gets out of oxygen and comes out of its socket so you develop a limp and it's really sore and then you can't walk on it. Yeah, so I had like plasters and and surgery and all that. So I was like, it was very weird to be like very sporty and then also have your identity stripped. I was the sports guy. And
if I was Josh and a 12 year old, I'd be like, I'm the sports guy. Yeah. This guy
as he had to lighten up by contact and stuff. That's why I didn't play footy. So I like you see me on a 40 field. I don't know what I'm doing. I don't know when the balls gonna go. I'm just out on the wing. Give me like,
Yeah, if you need if you need aid. Yeah.
Putting on a lot of champagne sets me Yeah. So what's the deal with the sauna like
Heard that you haven't heard this story, but did you first listen to the daily talk show in a sauna? Oh my god, great memory.
That's so crazy. Yeah, because as I was listening, I think it was mad Dave Ellis podcast. I heard of these boys and girls in the summer I was like, that's rad. And so I'm still listening to the podcast I leave the gym. I'm walking down Easy Street. And then the boys talking about like Verizon Easy Street and and I'm like just walking around. I'm like, Where are they? So I'm like, I think I sat down had lunch there and then like emailed them. They didn't get back to me straightaway.
But yeah, I reached out. I did. I did the I did the email thing. So yeah, that was the old office, I think. Yeah, it would have and yeah, also, when you're listening in a sauna like is it you wear headphones? Does it get all wet and stuff? Oh, that's a good question. Now I did kill one iPhone from overheating but they have a little safe
The box and you can put your phone in there and then kind of jack into an old cable and the speakers are great. Really?
Yeah, yeah, it's super nice. Yes. is super easy. It's just a little infrared one or is it a traditional? Now infrared so it was a two person thing. So like so someone came along I wouldn't subject them to that I'd stopped
and so I killed an iPhone that way just by just just not playing I playing it through headphones and, and yeah, just got over. I knew I could get it to like 13 minutes before it overheated, but I'd always push it and then it would shut down. I'm like, I wonder why my iPhone doesn't work properly. It's like maybe because you fried it again.
So you a podcast host you've got a couple of podcasts. And yes, you you wouldn't have you won't be able to tell by the amount of technical difficulty.
It's the it's the standard with the daily talk show I guess like the more people
Ayah the sheet of the setup
is not used to be a yes you know
that's a yo yo sure the process is back went back
season to be back by like the mildest of demand
by at least yeah I think like I mean lockdown just a bunch more time and I think I just got over my
you know I would never have done this for my podcast I've never done something over zoom I was in custody Yeah, this for a little plug but I think I just had to get over my own shit and and practice what I preach a little bit and be like, it doesn't matter. It's all about the it's all about the laughs and the banter and, and the question so. Yeah, so that's what I'm that's what I'm doing. Yeah, it's really cool. It is. It is really cool. I think I kind of forgot about it. Um, and I do another silly podcast with a mate which is like a video podcast.
Which is kind of still not a thing.
It's hard lesson. Yeah, it's great.
It's like, the editing is so good. It's put so much work into the video side of things.
Such a love hate relationship. We love doing it. It's like the finest hour. And then you know to get down to a tight 30 minutes. It's and and put in visual gags it's just it's just so much time. It's like 1520 hours. It's disgusting. But Oh, really? Yeah, it's a little video. I mean, yeah, yeah, you could tell like it's it's every minute there's some shit going on in the screen and totally for every visual gag if that takes you kind of like 15 minutes to knock up and then you'll you'll having those one a minute. It's like gotta not do the math. Somebody told me
it's a lot but it's fun. It's a we love it. And it's been it's been really positive. I think
And and and not even like humble bragging like I didn't think so many people would would dig it and like dm and be like I just I needed a laugh right now so that was cool especially like cuz I don't know It's madness at the moment everyone. Everyone is having these huge highs and lows like the Conoco funk. So yeah, that's nice. So what was the main goal for that show? Like it was it? Have you only done it in isolation? Kind of? Yeah, just yeah. So you might just catch up and that's funny shit. Yeah, essentially, or it can't like Eli is is like, we've only been mates for like two three years maybe but we're just like best friends and we're just the same person and it's crazy. And that's probably narcissistic to be like, I love you because you're so like me.
Just super goofy and we was we were supposed to. We actually we had like, we hadn't signed the lease, but that was only because I was overseas
At the start of the year, we're supposed to move into an office together and we're gonna do like a, like a daily thing. Just ask just gabbing building up the office and stuff. And then COVID here, and we kind of, yeah, like went to ground. We're like back in our janky little, you know, home studios. And yeah, Elijah's got super bombs. He lost a bunch of work. He had a bunch of filming planned and it all went to shit. And we talked to each other every day. And I can just, I could just tell over a couple days like he just, he's such a happy fun God. And so to kind of hear him bummed out. I was like, man, we got to do something. He's like, dude, let's let's can we do like a podcast or something? I'm like, how? Yeah, let's do a, let's do a podcast. So it just did just stem from that it didn't stem from like, I don't know, any, any, any any of my kind of dream to Grand show, which I have other projects.
It's great. And the other thing I saw on your Instagram recently was that you won an editing competition. I did was so nice.
Is the basil show this is this guy?
Then we'll get it to
then we'll move away from the formalities. Yeah.
All right, we
appreciate that. Now I wanted editing compresses really fucking cool. And it's like, I would say that, like editing doesn't get a lot of credit. And that's, that's not me that's like across the board. So it was awesome. It was awesome. And I didn't I just entered it. It was a kind of like online creative community pretty much heavily based in LA, but there is people from around the world. And so it was just like, you know, he's the he's the footage, everyone gets the same footage sponsored by epidemic sound, everyone gets the same access to music and sound effects, you know, make a 32nd edit. So I just I just kind of went hard at it and they let me know that I got in top 10 and I was like, seek this that that was enough of me because I I was you know, I knew that people had people that I looked up to have seen what I had done and I was like dming them. I'm like
I've already won. And then they did like a surprise on me and called me up. And like halfway through the conversation like told me that I'd won this huge ass monitor.
Which is like it's like 49 inches I got it. It's It's crazy, man. So that was really cool like I was I was chuffed to be like knowledge super cool prize. And then yeah, just like a little you know, I think like posting it I always feel weird posting and that probably sounds
probably sounds like bs coming from me. That's like, my whole life is kind of put out there for the world. But to kind of be like, hey, like, I like I won this thing. And not in a jokey way or whatever. That was cool. Like a lot of people came out from the woodwork and people that I've worked with in the past and they were like, well deserved and stuff. And I don't know, my first reaction is just like, Oh, thanks, like whatever. It doesn't mean anything. But if I could die
two days, so I just I just have like a couple of days where I was floating along. I was like,
But you know what I mean?
To be proud of my achievements like that, though? Might as well sell? Yeah, hell yeah. And I didn't I wasn't gonna fake that I didn't put a lot of work in. Yeah, that was another thing that but yeah, people were looking at it and people don't usually comment on like a tiny little transitional. They're like, Oh, it looks like you spent a couple hours like, you know, on this one tiny little thing that no one noticed. And I was like, I did spend a couple hours. I'm
so glad that Yeah, like editing doesn't get that much recognition. You know, in the Oscars and stuff that the film that wins best edits or best editor. It's often not the best editing. It's like, it's the most noticeable editing. I said, the best editing in films are the ones that you don't actually notice. And you just watch the film and it's just, it was like a film. It's like 1917 I don't know if anyone's seen that movie, but it's it it the way that it's like the way that they shot it was a one shot and so you don't actually notice any cut points throughout the movie. Yeah.
I thought I was I thought I was pretty good at picking out when cut points were but they did such an amazing job.
He loves to brag about it we were watching TV
anything as bad as that. But bachelor is gonna be the worst edited sharks out
there like the underpaying like uni students
Yeah, it's, it's clearly tight like cutting the sauce
into it he gets
not a great movie and the editing and filming that is, you know, that had to be incredible because they couldn't use any lights or anything. They had to basically
They'll just sitting around like, what if it was really sunny for it to be overcast? Yeah. Because before they could shoot because I'd have consistent lighting. And so they're like rehearsing the saints and that sort of thing, but then the cost of just sort of sitting around and then we get a cloud cover. And then like, let's go this guy, this guy is like 10 minutes shot, and they have the guy, you know, a big crane shot and then it comes down and then the cameraman shakes it off the crane. And he jumps on the back of a truck and then gets driven. It's insane. Yeah, but Yeah, that'd be cool to watch. Yeah, I can show you behind the scenes.
Speaking of using really long things to
say you want a really long computer, computer
Josh talked about something this week, where he needed another really long thing in order to be able to work productively.
Imagine having sort of a 50 metre long cork board to properly 50 metres. Yeah, that's good. five metres so long, I guess 20 metres 20, or even 20 made a cork board. I've been loving index cards for a long time. Think about when you're in school in school that the kids who are just getting started would write every single beat on the page, right? I had index cards, I read an article about index cards. So I've ordered index cards. They're a bit of a stainless stock, which I normally would be a thick stop anytime anyone who wants the index cards. Yeah, yeah, it's a very big drive. And he's really doubled down with the 4000 of them.
thousand index cards.
How are you feeling about adjust
I just started, he gets on these little tangents and he just rolls with it, but he's the only one. I don't. Like. We weren't, I won't use index cards. Like I have my own way of working. And I just
I don't know where he's gonna put them.
He's not bringing them to the office. We can't just have them like boxes just sitting around the office. I can't deal with the clutter. Yeah, it's, it's so much and also like, the whole thing of like, digital and analogue, like you've got, you've got like, I'm in Asana, just like writing all the things down like no tagging. He's in drafts like Yeah, he's the other drops guy like, mention you when I remember he was like, not you and you and Mason are getting on Asana. You're gonna make it work. It's gonna be like, we're gonna make
it Yeah, yeah, index. It's outrageous. I did. I did see though, basil. You have your own two stations. You've got like one desert for analogue and writing.
And then you've got your new 49 inch monitor.
Which is about 80% of the room for sure. What's going on there? Oh, I see. Yeah, well, mostly just because the monitor takes up so much.
Also, I do try and start not every day but like,
if I want like a nice slow start to the day, somewhere to read and to write, like to journal, write some bullshit or draw. I mean, I think I did call it analogue. I know I call it analogue. But now that I've got like an iPad, and I've been loving that, so maybe just offline I can call it offline.
Yes, new while
it's gorgeous. on the iPad guy, I thought I was so did I was talking to cry. So I was like, maybe I could just get rid of my phone, my laptop and just be the iPad. Gosh, and so I said when he calls
What's he gonna do like this?
about Apple watch or I could have air pods like it'd be great. Oh, yeah.
Go ahead, Joshua.
Mini me here.
Yeah, definitely grass out all the time. I do have an iPad.
Yeah, it's an old one. He's Yeah, he's wanting to get a new one. Make some get a vintage one. I want to get one. I want to get a pen as well. Oh, you said that pen to sign is when you write. Yeah, performing. Yeah. So yeah, I haven't looked into this at all.
But my videos on unboxings of iPads are the best things and
what's great is this this youtuber mkbhd He's like a real tech guy.
He's Marcus Brownlee, but what he does he's he's got his shotgun microphones so close to when he's peeling off the
off the rapids. It's a bit of ASMR Yeah. And so the volumes turned off like he's It sounds so, so great. And he's just healing the plastic off the outside and it's so satisfying. It makes me want to buy one just to do that. It
is the smell. Oh, yes. Oh, yelling is the first time any anything smell like new car smell great. Yeah, I wonder what the index cards will smell like? That's not good. Yeah, I play
when you're coming out with content, do you use like, do you write it down hand? What's the guy? Ah, I don't know. I say I listened to that episode. I'm running along in a sandstone and I actually was feeling worse for Jess in that combo but
Cuz I'm an asshole, I thought that I could outrun it right. I'm like looking at the web of the map. And we're looking at the timeline for the next couple hours. And I'm like, Oh, yeah, if I run up that way, I'll probably miss it all. And then I got halfway through my run and absolutely got drenched. And I'm the only one out there just sopping wet. And then you know, listening to Josh talk about index cards and and Jess have an absolute meltdown. And I actually felt worse for Jess and myself.
But also, like I can, I can empathise with Josh because so often I get angry at Josh and it's, I'm angry at myself because I am that guy. Over the weekend. It's like, I'll be like researching that. I'm like, Okay, now I'm doing that. I would say that on the index guy calm. Like, I will secretly be like, the index guy. God, like that's me. I'm gonna be that guy.
I mean, that's all
I keep doing that as well just with like, on the changing the life stuff like I keep signing Christ like if I just had a sauna all my problems
every like every conversation. Yeah.
I would be I'd be sweating
Really? Yeah isn't girlfriend doesn't cut it
is it really isn't a mindful practice to just sit in a sauna? Yeah, not yet so nice. It's if you like it if you like it it's unreal. Like if you don't like it, it's the worst. Yes. Do you hate them? Yeah, I just feel claustrophobic in them. Yeah.
Like being that hot. Yeah, I love it as well. Yeah, the thing the constant pace would annoy me I just get irritated I think Yeah. Did you come out real dry. Good, dry skin. Now you're sweating my
butt off to it.
You gotta have a shower and then you faces a little bit
You get to get going, but I don't like that feeling up on your skin's really dry. Yeah, it's like pulling not. So Jim. Jim Kay, what's his story the other day? She said, don't have one shower so dry like boom. Yep. And
I think as long as you just don't put your face on the Euro, what
is it like a strike down one?
Or the two are the two? Yeah. Oh, yes. Yeah, yeah. So you've got to kind of like to balance it between it too hot and then the code Yeah, have you had trouble adjusting to it?
Cuz you don't have when I'm like, some of them are so sensitive and they're just annoying. Yeah, I think so. Currently remember what taps I have at home now? But um, yeah, I think I figured out
thanks for that insight.
I've everyone enjoyed that.
What's the Bendigo Sona lock? Do you guys have a cylinder in Bendigo?
Yeah eaglehawk Leisure Centre. Oh yeah, that's go on. Sorry. We just got a package delivered my apologies. What
is it for me? Oh, it's for my house my dog. Oh boy. That's so annoying god damn it. What it does get dog What did you get?
He said I'll let you know oh on the next episode Oh
Basil's house made Australia Post
delivery times at the moment
we mentioned on the daily talk show one of my recommendations fair dinks which is Costco but delivered to your door. See that dinky fair dinky thing
Whatever it is fair didn't do
that. fittings. I mean, that was a good life hack. But you need as the president, you need to be pointing out that it's a life hack. It's a good benchmark and so more competent in your in your hacks might
just just, you know, come in strong.
Could you do an Instagram post today of a life hack for us? That'd be good. Sure, I can do that. I can't be real basic rinkeby use Canva.
So you don't need to pay your $99 membership fee, although it's got a 365 day money back guarantee. So if you do want to go refund on the 300 and 64th day, you've got to hold
back this little life hack. But the delivery is great because it's like 15 bucks flat fee. And it's way ordered on like Saturday, and I arrived probably like two hours ago. Hmm. So that's what you get. 16 kj berries.
Wow, three and a half kg of yoghurt and one and a half kg of chase aids and they forgot to put in one and a half kg of flaxseed which not happy about but we're sending them an email.
Go berries. That is exciting. That's why we have a super rocket to lacking
Jetson basil, you both obviously grew up in Bendigo
You guys know a lot about the town. No.
This is my gripe with the daily talk show.
Okay, tell us some facts off like Oh no. Every time you come in, you're like up
Got facts guys. What do you want?
stories no facts. What's exciting because we've we've got a whole segment for Bendigo facts. And over to you Georgie boy from Bendigo and the guy and the guy wants to know a Bendigo Gold Rush town town.
Like the six question marks,
effects when we've put together a list of facts from Bendigo and grace, George and I will be reading them out, Jess, you and basil going head to head and you guys are gonna have to answer
this set of trivia. So okay, so do we like raise a hand if we want to answer or are we can chime in or can just let's, I mean, some of them you might need to think about some, some of them are true or false. Some of them are one word answers, suddenly you've got ABC and you're gonna have to lock it in. So
I reckon we'll just go between you guys depending on the question, and then whoever gets it right, we'll, we'll go from there. So question one. Was it in Bendigo or Ballarat? That more gold was yielded between 1851 and 1900. And did they yield more gold than anywhere else in the world?
I'm gonna say yes. Yeah. And
then you go you guys nailed it.
Just might also show our bias as well.
Someone came from school.
That is a massive would you say? Not a conflict bit like rivalry between Ballarat and Bendigo? Yeah, I think it's like someone imagined to it's like the Melbourne Sydney thing like Sydney doesn't really give a shit and also Ballarat doesn't really give a shit but like growing up in Bendigo you like ah, Ballarat. Oh, you're bloody rats.
I don't care. Okay. All right. Question two. Bendigo is the seventh largest gold producer in the world. During the Gold Rush did they find a 2.3 million kilos of gold? Be 1.1 million kilos of gold or see 700,000 kilos of gold on the Bendigo gold fields.
Oh my god.
Oh 700 I might just say beef a basil. I don't know. I kind of imagined those numbers in my head. I don't think it would help if I saw them written down.
Beef or basil. They Okay, Basil Zaki ma Jess, what are you looking at? Say? 700,000 What's the N 7000 Oh, sorry. Wait, what was the other options? Can we go sorry,
AJ, I want one I want one.
2.3 million hanggang 2.3. Then well, both of you guys have cooked it because it's say 700,000 jazz
Try to sell
never change a multi choice question
that you may see right this one and it was the lowest answer.
gonna throw 700,000 kilos of gold. That's a bit of cold it's a
little bit Yeah.
All right, next one true or false. Bendigo is the birthplace of both the Chico row and foreign 20 pies. false false
It's true that this guy Raul was created in 1951. Guys I know more about been two years in
a row. Yes, but not for 25 Yeah, it says the first foreign pie was created in 1947 and was initially called the dad and dive pie often.

And it's there's heaps of restaurants all along there and they shut it off and there's bars and they do live music, that the best part is, is that they do an Abba tribute band. And so that happens on either the Saturday or the Sunday. I kind of interchange it. And ah, honestly, is it is it every year? Oh my god. Yes, I know the guy who runs it and he was gonna cancel it.
Bye bye. Yeah. Yeah, he was gonna cancel it this year. I was like, absolutely.

Oh shoot yeah thank you every time you go you're like I can win this time I can do it does that make a dent but you know that you're actually not gonna win yet the chances are slim Yeah, they do a great job. Next question. Where are we right was it go? Yeah, you're
right. Which year did city my open the first Meijer store in Bendigo.
Oh, oh. Ouch Here we go. I don't even I couldn't even decade it
no i Team 15 Sydney, my open story. What did you saw? I'm gonna go I'm gonna go sorry. Those close
Sydney, my eye for the first or in 1900
Putting a second store I is lighter. I actually remember this because I worked at my back in Perth. And this is like one of the first things I talk about. It's like really history like in Bendigo. So yeah, I didn't even want to insure together I thought there are completely different things to Niemeyer in my and I also thought Sydney was the best.
This is this, this is a good one, and it's one that you should both know. And it's got to do with I don't say Founding Fathers but the the fan, the founding of Bendigo. And so, question seven Bendigo was founded by Englishman William William Thompson, whose nickname was bendy, which later turned into Bendigo.
Why was William given his nickname, eighth because he was an amateur cricket player known for spin bowling. Be
He was a bare knuckle boxer who was constantly bobbing and waving around the ring. Or c he played football and had a knack for snapping the ball around the corner.
It's been right Yes, yes. Yeah.
Also contested I'm pretty sure but we'll go with it. According to Wikipedia, probably Yeah. Yeah. How did you leave it in its swag on a Kraken. Really? Whether they teach you this.
Love. I love history. So I research the shit. Have you ever done the tram?
I have. Yeah, but I do only do the tourist things like when you have people come and stay ride. So that's Yeah. And the reason why I know the Bendigo thing is dragging someone on the tram. And then we stopped at the tourist information centre, and they have this whole exhibition. They're like, Oh, thanks for taking me. And I was like, I had no idea that
I was on
the trams really fascinating Basil's you know what's hilarious is that I am I wanted to get a job on the tram one that one time. Oh, how embarrassing is that? So there's like this tram network guys it's just literally just a tourist tram now it's um, it just goes up and back to this place called Josh's house and then back to the city centre. And yeah, I applied for a job thinking that I'd be the person that's the tour guide, I suppose. And kind of talking about all the different things and sights on gradually, and I got it. And then they told me that it was just it was unpaid. It was just a volunteer.
To do it for the love and
the love of Bendigo
I was always destined to be behind the microphone apparently.
Guys, you guys know a lot about any guy that was hauled away from India and to get into Yeah, and the guy and the guy. Just want to know I've been the guy fat
Gold Rush town town
it is a gold rush.
Gold Rush town. Yes, yes is the superior Bendigo nia. Yeah
so Bendigo has actually been a topic of conversation quite a lot in the daily talk show particularly since Jess has been part of the team What did you grow up on in bed? nega you know, clogged so efficient what's plugged into restaurant doesn't sound good. What do you it's the best painter in the entire world. It's not super thick. It's not super thin. It's just a nice even spread of dogs that do dragon boat races as well in Bendigo they do yeah, at the local like yeah, like Runa love it. Where did basil go out homey basil where I went to you 12 he was at that school previously but he was older than I would have. That's the main street called my street turns into McRae street just for the for the for the clubs, just you're gonna go to a tarot card reader and bendy
Go really is there a Bendigo paper that is well known that you she's pretty good? Even aliens? No.
But she believes in in the lady in Bendigo that tells you
and so clogs basil oh my god yes. Okay I wasn't a fan of clog so this
kind of kind of got
no I actually was like you were in charge arts person. No I wasn't.
How dare you
Pizza from pinkies
guys don't know this there's serious shape going on right
Yeah, it's like comparing like, like doc pizza in Melbourne to Domino's or something. It's pretty cool. What it still means nothing to me.
That's right. Well, let me just jump in here, Basil because banteay guys, I mean, how dare you?
I, as soon as you guys can come out to Bendigo we, uh, I'm taking you out. We're gonna do a tram tour. We're gonna go to clubs and we're gonna have the best pizza of our life. And then we're gonna go nightclubbing we're gonna go straight.
The best pizza in the world can come from Bendigo I swear to god
I'm sorry Jess pizzas in Victoria, on the Herald Sun so. Exactly. The Lampeter you cannot get anything better.
I messaged you the other day because your dating life is now on three podcasts a week.
And you're on the daily talk show this week on episode 829. And they asked for an update on you dating and you had this off him at the moment.
He was fine, but he was like the pants wasn't that good that I'm like, you know, sad about it. So I can deal with that. And I mean, I feel bad. I'm probably cursing him because I'm just not gonna write back to his last message. He's just painful. Having to sustain a conversation really pisses me off.
Welcome to life.
You guys are engaging. They're like, hey, how should I answer you want to date houses what you're
drinking. He knows that he's talked about. Yeah, well, I told him. I told him that I was on a couple of podcasts.
Unless he stalked me on Instagram and have like somehow found you guys and the talk show and tallies I didn't tell him about like, what the names were sorry. If he's digging, I mean, it's in your bio.
Writing back because you need to have more engaging conversation.
Fair enough. Yeah. You, Gracie dining.
I mean, it's been it's been taught like I remember in front of the big strawberry when we were coming back from shipping. There was a whole bit around me being a difficult person today, because I'm so particular.
I think they made you out to be more particular than you actually are. You pretty laid back. Yeah, it's a certain thing, but like everyone's got their own. Like, they own their own things that they're particular about, you know, so I
type things so that you don't have to die, you know, difficult.
I was like, we were taught I think I was talking to Tony about, like, we've got to get a calming blanket now. Yes. And yes. It's it's really great. Like would recommend. We're having second thoughts about being 12 kg. We are. Initially we absolutely loved it. But yeah, we had the discussion last night. We might have to return it for the nine Kj. Yeah. Oh, no, it is already used to. Yes. It should be fun day. Was it nice and
return policy? So this is why I have trust issue the
sell that off to COVID. That's for sure. But like, Tony was saying that they've got two debates. They sleep with two debates. So they've got one for Tony, and then one for her partner talks. And so I was I mentioned to grace yesterday that we could get
to device and I could have one and then she could have one. Well, Grace is getting it.
Thank you, Jess. Thank you, Jess. I was like, Yeah, what's his devices? And I'm not about the two donors. Okay. No, I don't like no I yeah, no, yet. Thank you. I did say like, Well how we met tocado Yeah. Is it cool? You don't what do you get two singles or do you get Yeah, mine's not probably quite nature I can wait what is the fabric of the body
will be digests hasn't mentioned this is the this is the difficult Mason coming out. Okay. Great. Grace likes more warmth on her side and I like less and so we've got like two blankets that she has on top of the day. And then I've I've got like a, you know, half of the device that hasn't got any blankets, but yeah, I just sleep better with two I reckon with if we had to, I reckon I'd sleep better. Oh man.
Gnar Nari, starting it
Thank you, Jess.
I just chuck a leg out. Yeah, it does. Both legs and then halfway through the night he wakes up. He's Oh, you have some more because he's taking it all from me. So, yeah, no my dating laughs going well, George, thank you
should probably stop putting down the outside, right? Yeah, I should check out my phone maybe early, early days. Yeah kph definitely okay. In the early days of Josh and Bray dating, we found out the other day that they email each other.
Which is a key
word email is key. It's really heavy back in the day.
I get weeded out when I have to email like my sister or something like that. Because it's so I think it's probably so impersonal for us because it's like, oh, we could just text them or call them but they could have done that back in the day Surely, or a message online? Not definitely but john dial up. It was joking.
I mean he he posted.
But it's been a bit of a wake of celebrating all the emails this week. Because Josh, Josh keeps every single one of his emails. He's got like, thousands and thousands of emails. And this was one that he found. It was an email to his favourite podcasts at the time. diggnation he read it out on the show, June 14 2008. Girlfriend advice. D Kevin and Alex. I've put the main stuff in bold. So when you're drunk, you can read it easier. My girlfriend has an issue with me always being on the computer. I've been with her for nearly six months. And she doesn't see why I need to check my email all the time. And watch video podcasts. She says that as soon as we've done the deed, I check my emails and do pointless shit. By clicking around the screen, highlighting folders. She calls it. Postcomm mood. It's sort of
Should I stop paying on computer as much? or How can I get her into liking video podcast and Final Cut Pro? Thanks, guys, Josh, Australia.
yeah, it wasn't a Reddit app on the show. They're like, bro, get off your computer, like what are you putting around for? What are your folders? What does that mean?
God gotta be one of the cringy. Same as, say, cool. With that we thought we could do a quick run around the room and write out an old email. Something that's super cringy to look back on starting with you better
Alright, ah, so I luckily I don't have access to my old old email like my Hotmail. So I've got Gmail
Which is like 2012 on, I think something like that.
So I went with I went with will Addison, you know, Australia's most love comedian. And so I had I 29 emails back and forth with him. I was trying to get him on my podcast that had a total of three episodes.
But, you know, thankfully, he was a good sport and I think I just harassed him enough and just wouldn't give up. And so I had him on my podcast, but my fucking first email was like, I've decided that Twitter isn't anywhere long enough in the characters to holler at you like, What a way to stop. It's like, Okay, I'm gonna write you an essay.
And then I just said, like to holler at you like, Who am I? I told you I just moved to Toronto, and I've been giggling, giggling out aloud at your podcast, what's taking me I have no idea.
This is this line got me obsessed with failure at the moment I've been researching and flat out and I just started a blog, like who gives a shit. And then it's like, which will hopefully lead to my first documentary. I got to put it on the record that never happened.
And I just said, like, I'd be available anytime. I'd love to have an 18 minute Skype chat, like what?
dude, it's gross. And so I pretty much signed off but I did it. I did a like an email search for pick your brains, which I just knew as soon as you guys said that. I'm like, I'm just going to Google so I'm just gonna email search, pick your brains and it came up so many, so many. So I was just reading through all of these cold emails, just just cringy just so thirsty, like, I was so thirsty. I'll give it to myself. That I was, you know, I did meet up with a lot of people and I was just young, like, that's all I give to myself is that I was young, I was hungry. I was trying to get into an industry in a new city in a new country, but
13 minute chat was
like, we look back and we cringe at them, but it really is the only way to do it. Like, if you never sent that email, they would never know that you even existed so totally like, yeah, I mean, I guess it makes you think when, where if we ever get any of these emails from young up and comers when we're when we're pro
will be a bit more forgiving in our environment giving it a go. Totally. Yeah, exactly. Giving it a crack. Hmm. Well, what about you, Jess?
Okay, sorry. Mine is sorry. cringy my tea from How long ago?
This is 11th of July 2008. So I was 18. Oh, oh, yeah. Yes, please. Yeah.
That sounds way worse.
I'm excited. I'm excited to hear this. Sorry, Jessica. It's funny cuz you probably wouldn't
The guy that it was, I'll tell you after. Okay, so the bottom of the chain goes ha, sweet Jeet dreams, Jess. And then there's like six kisses. And then I've gone low cats. Why did you send this to me? Was it when I cracked it and left you on MSN? Pay us maybe you would jinxing me into having the horrible drains I've been having lately, maybe. And then like 20 kisses, and then like randomly it goes, you should probably he said to me, You should probably get me a glass of water. And then I said Well, okay, sorry. I have a massive amount of tinsel on my head. Mom just thought my hair. Yeah, you should hurry up and get home from work.
Last but not
least is does that make you feel like do you feel like what? inside?
Like Sorry? Yeah. Is this like, what's the relationship with this person? Is it like someone? Like is it like almost dating like, what's the vaad? Yeah, started saying this guy for a bit in high school. I want to tell you, he's
Email address but it's big fate. And the few email@example.com
that makes it worse.
Oh my word.
Just makes me cringe. MSN as well. Yeah, this is me sounds great. And then you'd log off and log back in to make sure that the person you want to speak to you with logging back in.
We only used to play those games. Yeah. You guys used to make you I used to make my name a song lyric. Yeah. Yes. Like a whole sentence for you.
So do you had your name that underneath? You had like a little bio you could put stuff in. I just put a song lyric in there, I think. Yeah.
I don't know. I can't remember what now.
I don't know. What's my favourite song at the moment. I'm always from like, PCs. You know? Like, you're like real alternative. Like, just try. I was only like 12 was it? Yeah, like Pixies.
actually I think we only use fraud when I had MS and my brother was really into paint Mari back then well cry and so it was probably his paint Mario or something in there because I would just listen to my brother listen to
sorry much slack at the USD I'm probably lacking popper I should probably have like come on life into paces
Actually, I probably still have it.
Yeah, all right, can I was my email address. I had another one that was black, but be like, hey, on the school firstname.lastname@example.org
now trying to go Oh, yes, I'm so glad I deleted my own emails.
Jay, Jay, what do you have? So I spoke a little bit about it last week. The first email ever sent to Josh Hmm, and, and just looking back at it now I'm like far I actually
Can't believe he got back to me. It is. It's so cringy So, I emailed Josh when I first moved to Melbourne. And I said what he was just by the way, I'm sorry. This is 2017.
Subject assistant editor.
Hi Josh. My name is George Martin and I'm a cane cane editor from Byron Bay, not really for barbers say
I'm a cane editor from Byron Bay. I've just recently moved to Fitzroy and I'm looking to build contacts around Melbourne. I've attached my CV and cover letter with a link to my folio. Just thought I'd drop a line on the off chance you needed any, any assistant editing arena. So big typo, they're happy about that. I think I mean to say if you needed any assistant editing or a runner, I'd like to drop in and introduce myself if there is a quiet, quiet ish time at the office. No doubt you're very busy. Thank you for your time.
And he replied like 20 minutes later, and he said, thanks your stuff looks great. We'd love to grab a coffee. And, and it's funny how he said that he said, Hey, George, thanks for the email Welcome to Melbourne. Your stuff looks great. And then it's funny how when they start writing like that you try and like kind of copy them so that I check from them. Hi, Josh. Hey Josh. Like hey, Josh, thanks for that cheese. I sounds great. What time suits you. And so I opened up my I touched my cover letter and stuff, and it's like,
oh, god, it's like
DHS Janssen. Wishing,
wishing to register my interests as a freelance if any upcoming edit assistant roles, or if you just need an extra hand on deck. I completed my Bachelor of film post production in 2015. But guys on
been working as an editor and that sort of thing.
My move to Melbourne was driven by my passion for film and television.
And to seek opportunities at a high level. I'm a big fan of your style. And I've enjoyed watching your stuffs in Southern Cross austereo days. I feel like the valley a value and we'd be on the same page if you were to need an assistant.
Yeah. Um, so apparently that was the first email he ever got back
from from those kind of emails from those cold emails. Wow. So I must have said something right. But
that's awesome. It's cringy. As far as I mean, speaking of cold emails, I wanted to find my email that I sent to Tommy.
But it's, I'm pissed off because I've deleted a bunch. So instead of archiving, I just went through a period of just deleting because I didn't realise it was an archive. So I deleted a heap of them. What was the gist of it was it was essentially like
Subject line at Tommy, can I work for you for free?
And then it was a psych ask cut through.
And then it was essentially,
you know, I'm studying at Swinburne University at the moment.
Not super interested in it, but we'd love to, you know, get into the industry and learn more about business marketing, video production, podcasting, etc. And then the Westby does it gave them a few ideas for his YouTube channel. And I wish I remember what they were. But one of them had to do with like, you know, filming in an Uber and stuff. So I sent that one but I, I also found another cold email that I sent, and this was this is around probably a similar period where I was doing a bit of like web design work. And so this, this is October 23 2018 8:50pm, and it's sent to this
Like called Marco. And it says, Hey, Marco, I just saw your email when I was driving past your truck today and would love to help you out with a website design. Would you be interested? Some of my designs include Tommy jacket, calm, Mason law, calm. I've also included included mate digital comm, which was the name of the business that I was, you know, working through. And then I would say love, love to help you out. I've seen that the design on your truck could do with some work.
I sent that to him just from saying you know, those trucks that include the email on the side called email strike.
That's so good. And how did they take it because you really have
to start with an insult as well like
Tell me I want to know about ever been on it, but it looks great. Tarija.
I just I actually downloaded a theme and then plugged in a few photos
2018 at the bottom in in the nature of the cringes that yeah old emails and bring my own dams to the daily talk show
specifically in regards to whenever stories of nice put off
I was literally just about to say I want to know
how you got in contact with her and what that email said or what that message said. So this might answer my question. Oh, this might be probably why cuz we did look for the first messages about the very first text from the show phone. Yeah, through. Oh, yeah. Basically, it was I first started like replying to stories, when after mice got his hair bleached, and then the right guard started and I was an It was like, oh, writing the rager if I missed the naughty seven like little
And then there was a post that it was like 10 weeks post the bleaching and I was like, oh, like I write the re growth. He can rock frosted tips.
What was the slide on it? Yes, yeah. And then there was one of Mason with Bodie in the studio. I'm looking at the mixer. I'm guessing this was funny. And I was like, Kelly's ovaries must be exploding right now.
And then there was one of when my son and Bodie was in July you guys went to jilong
Hs Yeah, yeah. And I was like, This is the wholesome content I didn't know I needed on a Sunday morn it's very cute because it's so cringe. Like he's jumping. Yeah. Yeah. And then there was one big replying to these ones. I know there was a there was a couple of other stuff that like but man I was playing a lot. I was playing the long game with nice
And then there was one that you guys posted this year of. In February of the shamela. It was like a little snippet of the shameless interview. And I think in that he said, like, oh, he likes to work out and watch Netflix or whatever. And I replied, I like to work out and watch Netflix, but I feel I'm too old for Mr. 97. You really just laying it
Yeah, what do you say on and so someone replied was like expensive flights? That would have been?
What do you try to do?
So yeah, trying to derail you may even 20 25th of February that was only like, three full weeks. We started talking. I know. Yeah. So yeah, that was my little. Yeah, that's
the first text I sent to grace on the show phone was a generic one. So I went through all our VIP cranks and and went through and message them. But then I think we got on
To the topic of talking about what we're going to have for like Friday night drinks and in crisis using Yeah, you asked me about a very key. Before we finish up, basil. Just wanted to basically thank you for being just a great guy. And you've done so much stuff for the daily talk show, including making the daily talk show Instagram filter. Where Oh, yeah, so excited. You hold your face up against it, and it changes which character it is. And how do you do that?
Well, pretty easily because I'm not a whiz. So it has to be basic AF. It's just Spock Spock AR is the is the like app I guess that you that you use. And then I just watched one tutorial and yeah, hot the hot thing was just was getting the the photos and stuff and it's really we process the approval process. So initially, I had everyone's names underneath and it said there was too much text
And then I submitted again and it said you can't use real photos, which is bullshit because sometimes they do like it's really hit or miss like depends who you get. So then I had to cartoon eyes them and take a few out. And so yeah, I just kind of went back and forth, back and forth and then kind of gave up on it. And then it got approved. And happy Harry actually, like, just must have been stalking my page, found it and then use it. I was like, Oh my god, I gotta prove.
You realise you're gonna have to make a tweak. Yes, I know. I know. I'm
gonna have to do an app that
I think was pretty jacked. Yeah, yeah. It was like, not funny, man. I never get me but my sister always gets me.
Is it How does it work? Is it just like complete luck? This? No.
It's randomised? Oh, no, it's complete luck. Yeah, yeah, yeah, you can you can watch it but I've noticed the same thing too that some people get a lot of
have the same person. It's It's It's supposed to like, you can see the whole thing. What am I trying to say? Like the scaffold version of it like, it's like one node runs into the next and you can say, like, the random number and how it works. But well, yeah, it's just it's just bizarre but like I got, I got my housemate to test it. And he just kept on getting Tommy and I was like, This is supposed to be random what the house makes no sense. That's great. Well, I've actually put together a little kind of compilation to finish up just with all the nice stuff you've done. Basil was like the loveliest guy going around, Basil messaged me and said, Mike, I've got these things. I need you guys to have them for fat Fridays. Okay, long those lines and then broad edge and yes to go out of your way of like, I'm gonna do nice things for people. Yeah, yeah. It is like it really is like it's a it's a big kind of core tenant of mine. huge value. It's still like to send postcards when I'm away. That's really nice. These are the messages that he wrote to me. I You crushed it tonight. Like you superpowers like
waiting time stronger than you think, you know, phrases tapped into that frequency trust in great pace.
I am a gift giver. Yeah, yep. Yep. But more like, it doesn't have to be a gift as long as it's thoughtful but usually that's doing something which is like it's a bit of a gift. I thought it would be good to get basil to give me a bit of a pumped up. Maybe I just think that's one of the fun. Yeah, I get. I think everyone gives you superpowers. 20 times more powerful than you think.
Thank you. You've created a one minute video. Yeah, which was from Episode 500.

So you're welcome a big thank you for that. Thank you for that. And also, another thing that wasn't in there you created some trust in Bray t shirts that you dropped off for Josh,
