It's Hump Day replay.
replay it's Hump Day replay. Georgie boy here back with Mason and Jess and grace. Famous Last week the whole gronk squad. And we've got tall gronk head coach of old NBA and co host of the long and the short of it. Pete Shepard. I can't
like I said NBI them but actually said MBA.
Like I was talking about it. What time
did sport chat last week? Pete? What's our basketball team do you go for? I was in New York Knicks man well was I'm a New York Knicks man but they're no good anymore. They haven't for ages. So it's been a bit disappointing.
Yeah, go ahead. Yeah, like is done.
In the last 12 months Yeah, yeah waggon Yeah, big fan big fan.
I wanted to jump on the Michael Jordan bandwagon, but I didn't want to be too too hard and go for Chicago Bulls. So I go to the team that he owns, which is quite shit. Yeah, but I don't know what
the Charlotte Hornets. There we go. real big supporter. Yeah, huge.
Yeah just reminded me nice Actually, I do go for the Chicago Bulls I just remembered.
I'm a bass fan. Yeah, he's bought that as well. Man.
Pay you just did your hundredth episode of the podcast. Long the short of it. Congrats. Thanks, man. Yes, so exciting. I mean, it feels exciting. But then you look at like the daily talk show on the up to 800 and something and
just check myself but yeah, 100 100 episodes 100 weeks, so it's pretty cool. Having a nice solid
One awake so yeah, now we haven't missed one awake one way for him. That's bloody impressive. Yeah, that's it and and you've and you've gone over to the US and done it in person in the US with Jen Yeah, yeah, it's actually weird for us it was like wait for us to do it in person because we've been recording ours remotely for like over two years now. And yeah, when we did it in person it was kind of weird because I don't know like you. When you do it remotely we I guess you're more patient because you wait, in case there's a lag. And then when you're in person, you kind of talk over the top of each other a bit more. At least we did. So it was like it was really weird. It was really weird when we did it in person. Yeah, I mean, that's that's what I love about your show. It's like it's so easy to listen to us. There's like this nice Jen talks and then you need to
it's like very well behaved very well.
Here it's just everyone fighting for time.
we're looking at the waveforms of last episode and Jess wasn't happy with with her wife.
Um, so she's gonna come in strong today.
Mostly because so someone took a screenshot was it, you
know, work group chat, and Josh wanted to play the game. Guess the waveform. And so there was the four of us our other guest Hayden, and what was the other? No, no, it was basil was basil view. And then there was another, there's just a random white there was like, Yeah, I knew Josh couldn't get it because there was like a recording on the road caster here basil recording locally on his end then. And a lot of channels. There's a lot just a lot of live show, basically exactly what you thought we would talk about in our group chat.
Yes, the way we chat.
Exactly, well, 100 episodes, you're talking about celebrating milestones and stuff like that. So today, it is Tommy Jackson's birthday yesterday. So I call him after we play this snippet talking about
Getting into the local newspaper. There's no messing around the eastern edition, the local paper and it's free. So it's it's hard for us to get an ad European on it, and I might, but I was just thinking if you can't sell podcast ads, you definitely, you know, couldn't sell newspaper spots. So I got into the paper as a kid at the Brighton bars I jump over the old men sunbaking
my I went in, and I fucking got in the paper, and it was big mom still has the clipping. I reckon I could get it. It'd be good. Yeah, I reckon we could get
a big deal getting in the paper.
So we asked you guys to bring something where they if you've been written up before in a newspaper or news article, a little bit of local PR, it'll be like, Okay, well, it's I mean, it's a bit disappointing. I've never had a write up in the newspaper. So that's yet to come, but in my primary school
news letter in the yearbook. It's got the grey foam right about, we all had to do a how to
little section. And so the one that I chose was how to do scissor kicks in soccer. And it's a step by step guide. This is from 2008 a step by step guide on how to do as soon as you kick in soccer. Have you ever been in a soccer match where the balls were too high to header? Well, after this, you'll be able to score with the system.
Step one to blog.
You will need A soft floor to land on a soccer ball, a target and someone to throw the ball to you. Step two. Once you've got someone to throw the ball to you, when the ball is coming down, fall back, and your foot will hit the ball. Step three. Now he's the next kick.
You won't need anything else. Get someone to throw the ball to the left or to the right side of you. When the ball comes down, strike the ball with the middle or lace of your boots.
Step for you everyday problems
is that for you, we'll have some problems with the two kicks like the second one, the ball might roll off the back of your boot and backwards. When you try these kicks, they won't always be on target. So keep on practising and you will be like a professional note. Do not try this at home without adult supervision by my son.
outrageous you have to put that disclaimer, disclaimer. No Did you do it? You know, I reckon Oregon, Oregon, I did that and the teachers like
Could you do a scissor kick now since if we teach you on how you can write about it, but
never do one that was just real simple.
Do I can write about it. You made it sound so easy. I assume you'd be doing all that. Yeah, so the idea was you write that and then that's it. You've done it. And now we can all do it. Yeah, no, I mean, give it a go. I mean, there are a few others like, I mean, how do you these are written by everyone else in my level. How do you do the splits? How to find out what your fingerprint looks like? And how to get a puppy.
How to shoot a three in basketball. How to get big muscles in a six pack.
real big achievers.
You Jess. What do you have? Sir, I have been featured in the newspaper quite a bit. It turns out No, I didn't even realise did the same thing.
Just I haven't got into that industry. Okay, it all started with the Bendigo Easter fear the one that I love. At the teddy bear picnic.
It says I don't know if you can see it. As picture manage anything.
It says, Jess Lucas to have Bendigo danced away through the teddy bears picnic. Jessica was one of hundreds of children who played sorry, who enjoyed the weekend activity.
Right? Yes. Yeah. Ah,
I've got all sorry. Now you go for? Well, I was gonna say I've been featured on the front cover of the local people twice. And it's I know it's weird because both of them have been at sporting events and I am potentially the lay sporty person ever. So I'm just wondering whether they did it because I always looked like put together right.
Yeah, I'm in LA and I've got maracas.
Very nice. seagreens from my good. Yeah, well, that's my house colours that turn.
Here I am.
That as well. It was residents angry.
Is that a running event that one of these bush ones we had to run like five K or whatever through the bush cross country? This one's funny because I'm like, I remember going How embarrassing. Do you remember Stephanie McIntosh from?
neighbours? Yes. Yeah, she came to Baker Creek and so they paid. Yeah. I was a stiff and I was
apparently so it was.
Great. So that's like a maintenance great and you got in the newspaper? taking a photo with it. Yep. Awesome.
What about up? What do you have? Uh, well, I sent mom this challenge because I knew she'd love it and she didn't disappoint. She's got a bunch of old newsclippings the two that I sent you guys that I sent you serves that I'll highlight. One was I wrote an article or I wrote like a,
like a creative writing piece in year 11 at school. And my English teacher sent it to the age and they publish it in the age. Oh, really? Yeah. So it's cold. like writing says
Yeah, like mom says you'll never regret a swim and it's this article about how you'll never regret to swim. Can we get the first paragraph? Sure.
My mother has always tried to inspire me on our fridge at home she has statements on bits of paper ranging from this is an equal opportunity kitchen to live every second as if it's your last. But the piece of paper that stands out the most to me is a bright pink piece in the top left corner of the fridge. It says you'll never regret a swim. Whoo. Yeah, wow, what a hook is well, I can't wait.
I republished it on my blog, like, a year or so ago now. And it's without question the most viewed post I've had like still. I'll never match it. I am. Is it a metaphor? Is it literal? No, it's very literal. Like I grew up at the beach and we shall say, you won't get you won't regret having to swim. And then the the best bit as well as like the the heading underneath the beginning.
Like the subtitle Peter shepherd and his family go shock dodging.
I think at one point I mentioned in the article like I used to pat myself on the back for avoiding getting bitten by shock every time.
So that was that one and then in 2007 Yeah, I was featured in the local papers called the the Echo, which is like the bellary. Nutella local paper. Yeah, and this was for getting ducks at my school.
So there's I wonder if you can say this horribly, horribly cringe worthy photo.
casually grabbing my legal studies textbook out of the bookshelf. Yeah. And the heading was work, rest and play brings the right mix for ducks.
That's great. Did I actually get you to stand there and just I remember it really
So guys, so firstly, they called me and like you do, we did a phone interview. And then they're like, oh, we're gonna send over a photographer and I was like, all right photographers. So big deal. So I put my best t shirt on and do my hair. And then the guy comes over and he's like, just grab that textbook and pretend as if you just reaching for it, and the bookshelf sounds like
I got this. I got this. I was like, This is my moment. This is
this is it. Anyway, so that was the two that I came up with. mom sent through like under nines, athletics and under says, you know, cross country and stuff, but I don't think that's important.
Oh, Grace, you had a similar thing as well. Your mom went through all the archives, or she went through all of them, and was sending me like soccer awards that I'd gotten in year like 11 and 12 and things like that. I was like, No, mom, we don't need that. She did say there was one article I was mentioning in the local paper, but it wasn't very funny. It's just about being on some
I got to go to some Commonwealth heads of government student meeting pretty boring. But the one that she did send through that was quite funny. It was when I dressed up as a machine and I've just as heimish throughout like final day for school, I'll show you a photo. That's That's me, speaking say
with all the fighters away on Instagram as well.
And basically was just written about our final day and I think the like the year 12 captain of the year wrote about it and she interviewed me and once you know, we ride back at school and organised for the fun parade by grace and Catherine, who due to the hilarious costumes would be known as Hamish and Andy for the rest of the day. Like Katherine really is the end to my Hamish, she puts up with a lot of my silly comments and weird ideas and he's very, very patient with me in class. We really encourage the cohort to enjoy all the little moments CCI and we think we've done that a lot.
It's like, oh, god
Let's go out in public
Why did you choose Christianity just because they're the fun people and you're like, um, we have to we have to dress up as a Jew. Oh, and we chose Hey, we should end um I don't know why 2013 what that gap using stuff back then I think probably so maybe we were like fans of that and yeah we just loved them and then we just decided to do Jaime Shandy yeah you're gonna it could have been this
is I think it might have been yeah Zetas which is easy so we try to find the the T shirts with the little bow ties and the suits and then we embroided like a haitch in an eye on them as well because yeah, that's
Yes I am. I was like, I googled myself because
as I did when I was in when I was in Byron Bay from 2011 to 2016 applied to
sucker there, and I was like in the paper quite a lot, like not to that device but
we get it. There's one here. scores. There's another one this
doesn't seem to kick
as I was giggling because I was like, not that funny if you completely forgot about this one. There's one here it's big photo of me. I'm wearing a beanie and I'm wearing a long sleeve, zebra black and white kind of buttoned up shirt.
And, and the headline is it so this is when I was 19 years old at Georgia wants to vote, but it appears he's the exception.
Young people switching off from politics. It seems that way after statistics released by the Australian Electoral Commission revealed that more than half a million young Australians are not enrolled to vote. George Martin is 19 year old media student at Southern Cross University in Lismore, and this year, he'll vote for the first time and then it's going to provide for him
Maybe Yeah, here we go. It says, I'm a little bit interested. But I don't really watch the news that much because it's too confusing.
A little bit interested. But that turned that into the headline.
Mr. Martin also said many of his friends aren't interested in voting. So the fact it's compulsory to vote is essential. And it's quite for me, I think it's really important to vote and being forced to vote rather than having the choice is good, because you have to know a little bit about what's going on. Even if you're not interested. You sound very confused.
Like, I don't know if I'm voting liberal labour today.
How did you even how did they even find you for that? And I, it was written by this girl who I knew so she was just like a journo who wanted to write this story, and I guess she asked me because I was like, my first time 30 need somebody young? Yeah, I just I just looked super dumb. But then when I was like, so I googled that To try and bring that up just before the show. And I typed in the crowd
Nicole George Martin vine venues scroll down to like, fifth thing down there. And this is a this is a headline.
Penis eating murder a
barn barn shot nice
elaborate What's happening? So unfortunately it's behind a paywall so
I could just
paint that's what happens when you tuck in GEORGE
Yeah, that's not what you want.
Goodness Ray so certainly not. Anyway that was a great little celebration of getting the Piper I thought we could call Tommy now just to say happy birthday.
Talk about talk about him getting the fact that
Elijah shanton speaking
On Hump Day Ray with the gang picture.
Hey, happy birthday, tj. Night. Thanks, fellas. Happy Birthday Happy diving. Yeah, good night good.
Mostly chasing my son around in China. You know?
He's I'm doing my hidden To be honest, but other than
We were just talking about you getting to local paper and then we shared some stories of our own getting in the paper.
I've got a little bit of a challenge for you for tomorrow for the daily talk show. Sure.
You talked about how you got the local paper the other day, that Eastern edition. Yeah. And you're talking about how you could if it was possible to get an ad in there. Oh, yeah. So I've submitted one.
What is that isn't that easy? Are they free?
So, tomorrow on the show, which is actually Wednesday, which is actually the discount is very confusing.
If you're listening on Wednesday, can you open up the paper and see if we get in?
Okay, and so you need to do well, I'll do a little work of where I actually can get this wrong because I picked it up off a park bench.
And I've since burned my copy in the fire over the weekend. And so I don't know, I'm not quite sure where you get it from, but I'll look around the right okay, great.
So I never actually got confirmation whether we got in or not, so I don't even know.
And so what's what's the ad George? So the ad so you get it's a free ad up to 40 words.
Is it text only not magic words? Yeah. So I think if we I think you can submit like photo ads and stuff.
It is not that actually not that expensive thing. We should probably do it. But
I just wrote, listen to Hump Day replay the show about the show new episode out every Wednesday on your favourite podcast app. Previous guests include jack post, Tony Lodge and Pete Shepard. Yes.
love it. So that's that scene and then I am I wasn't feeling confident about the copy so I did it submitted another one.
Well, it's similar
to it says second version is listen to Hump Day replay the behind the scenes podcast of the daily talk show. Every Wednesday, Georgie boy replays his highlights from the week of shows Tommy's birthday edition out today.
And then it still had a few words left. So I said Happy Birthday Tommy jacket in brackets for yesterday. Love you. And that's 40 words.
It's better than putting something in the deaths and births section.
Yeah, so, I mean, if we can get our hands on one, maybe we will have to do it online. But best case scenario, we've got two ads in there.
Or else hopefully we've got one. Maybe.
I'm gonna go, I'm gonna go for a drive now. And we've already and I'm going to try and find a place where they give it away. I might go to a local cafe and just ask them. Yeah, great.
Love it. Thanks, guys. Have you built
say, there you go. I can't believe they're free submissions yet. Well, like I said in that in that snippet, he said like if you can't sell podcast and how are you gonna sell pay for ads.
There's even a section I think that giving away now like
Bigger ads. It's not just the fault like because of COVID. So there's businesses that they like being a generous business with supporting local. That's not really nice with the whole page spread
out actually be good. So pay. We've sort of talked about this story arc a little bit, but I'm not with you. Here you are. Josh is walking partner slash coach.
It's started probably as walking coach, and now it's we've moved into a partnership, I want to say, yeah, fair enough. Well, since we've been in stage four, he's um, he sort of lost it a little bit. He's lost. Unfortunately, I haven't spoken to him for about a month because he really won't leave the house. Yeah. Is that the only time you speak when you're walking together? Well, I was walking the other day and I saw I called him I was like, I'll do a walking like phone conversation with him at least and he was lying on the couch or sitting on the chair or something, trying to strive to get him
about to leave the house. Yeah. And then he finally did and I heard he got sick. He told gronk pay to ship it 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 us apart. Yeah, I think walking is a great is a great sort of date. And I'd walk 10 kilometres a day. I'm a walking guy walk. I haven't gone outside in weeks. The drawing of 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. 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 about walking. I went for a walk this morning. I nice. It was a first
in so it was one month. I haven't bought
have gone outside for a month I've gotten glands that a huge
I'm getting sick or I am sick Do you think
out one to get
just a month not going outside though. Oh it's ridiculous how many steps you doing these days paid? Oh that's a good question. I don't I don't have the I've got the work which doesn't do steps that does like strain but I would guess
I want to say I'm pushing 10,000 but probably a bit less 10
Well I'm trying to pull day we get I'm standing up all day so I think every time I go like that it kind of counts if you go from side to side yeah which I do a lot but I try and make my the hour that we get I try and do a walk or run. And I want to say like yesterday I ran five K, which is pretty good. Is that that'd be what that'd be six 7000 steps maybe. Yeah, that's
And then like a walk in between, so I feel like I'd be pushing 10 maybe not quite 10 and that's so for hundreds, not many
just around the apartment as well. That's not just going to the toilet got to get up and go to get an outside. Yes. What do you think? What can you do? How can you coach him into it again, I think I'm gonna have to keep I'm gonna have to keep calling him every time I go for a walk and maybe eventually he'll like he'll mirror like, you know mirroring if you do something, someone eventually mirrors your behaviour. Maybe I need to walk and talk to him and eventually that will mirror the behaviour to him and you'll start walking.
I mean that it has it has been one time like I remember being on a FaceTime with him and he's put me in the cupboard. And he's on his bike, or just in the office of his training bike and he's just going for a little phone.
I was like man, like you
really just like my 30 seconds you up. This just got hot but he's great at
Get outside. He's right on the walk. He gets the fresh air. And he's Brian, the ideas start going. It's where he does his best work. We got to get him outside. Ah, yeah, for sure. So I feel I feel that you guys even take like when you guys walk together, there's always some good conversations happening. There's a
lot. Yeah, he's developing his business in his head and all that. So it's always good. He's always got something that's been like pretty funny since the middle of winter, less than last year, I guess. Sometimes we'd walk at like 6am. And we both just be so miserable. And the first usually like the first hour, we'd walk for two hours, the first hour we just complain and just grunt and just grumble at each other and then we get a coffee and Uncle Drew's the son would have risen by this point and all of a sudden we're up and about Josh has got a new idea for a new podcast and a new business and a new this and a new that and then you get back to the office all fired up and so resign so it's like,
go through that initial period to get to the to the good stuff at the end. But he asked you what he asked you what your highlight of your day was when he first
It's been going on what's been the highlight?
I just got out
I mean that's, that's that's one of his sayings. What's the highlight of the day when you get into the office paid one at one of your sayings?
It's a bit of self guidance as well. Who's it for? What's it for?
And, and so we thought we would play a little game called who's it for? What's it for? Who is it for and once and once we are clear on who we are seeking to serve, who we are trying to change, what is the change we're trying to make?
Special thanks to Seth Godin.
That was from Episode 190. If anyone's interested, Seth Godin, Josh and Tommy's idol.
They, there you go. Thanks for thanks for that.
So I thought we could come up
I've gone through and I've gotten a list of birthday presents and gifts.
And so I'm doing a little reversal. But I want to know what it is. And What's it for? And then who's it for. So I'm going to go and describe the actual description of the items, right? And so they don't actually give away the title. And I'll give you the price. And I want you guys to buzzin we got some feedback, nine buzzes, and now a thing, john, doing nine buzzes, always.
so buzzing with your name, and I'll read out the description and then give you the price. And we'll start with what is it and then from there, we'll figure out who's it for. Okay, so these are based on real gifts like these have been gifted to someone or we make these. These haven't been gifted, but they're on gift websites. And so the people the selection of people are sort of the close
gronk did this show so like Josh Tommy potentially screwed up potentially you potentially gem right and then as well Jess and j Bay so
the first thing Chris is like
me and toothbrushes fine guys.
That's sorry. So the first one is an $18 gift. A small step for a handyman. These are its features two magnetic strips for securing metal items easily. pockets and straps for storing non metal items and a fully adjustable strap to be able to put things big and small on it. Now this is something that is used for handyman thinking about middle sized to do with sc Okay, here we go. I want to say who's it for is good at
Got it. Okay. And in terms of what's it for, I mean, it sounds a bit like a tool belt of sorts that school today would be using to do some sort of renovation in a studio. Okay, that's very close. Think about it's an adjustable strap
is just built. Yeah. Okay. It's more adjustable strap, like a headband or something like something real weird like it.
put stuff in
It's a wrist strap, so it's a magnetic wrist strap. So when you screwing in things, you can attach all your
nails and nuts and bolts to it and it's magnetic. So hold some curity de
skid and add that one to cut.
That's working can claim that Alrighty. The next one is 22
dollars cleanspace dapper face time and trim your beard without the problems of a plug hole blocking. This item will have you styling in six seconds. And suction caps are included. Grace. Yeah. Okay grass, some sort of capture for your beard, like a piece of material is like a section that goes on the mirror. If it sticks on the mirror, and it's a cloth, like think about something that you wear the hairdresser, and it's got suction cap on the end and it sticks on to the glass.
And it's catching all your trim is crap. I think he's a four year guy gross. Ah, Josh. Yeah.
We could get it for grey, maybe actually.
The third one is $22 something that you'll find on Amazon
This ain't your grandpa's ponytail. Once you've done checking yourself out in the mirror for half an hour, you want to hit the tan to see people's reactions. This is great for any man and it's also a great gift. There's a comfortable cotton visor with an adjustable strap. Something that is so realistic that may fool your parents into disowning you.
It looks so good, your wish the style stays forever. And there's a pre tied loose, bouncy knot that you can adjust to your preference.
What do we think?
You'd abstract a little bit
so one of one of the reviews are just give a bit more information. You gave me an unexpected confidence and sexy swear.
That's straight off MSRP sexy swag. Wow. Yeah. Is it like
it's like fake hair or something.
It's like a mullet.
Like a puppy.
It's it's a man bun. It's like man bun with a visor on the front of you wearing the cap. Ah, and you've got a fake man bun coming out the top. That's great. change up your look. Yeah, so who's who's this for? I would say, Tommy jacket.
What do you think Jess? I'm gonna say tj. Okay. Yeah. Hey,
I'll just mix it up. I'm gonna go George Martin.
It's your boy. Yeah. Is a little bit hipster with the top notch. Yeah, you don't know what to do with your hair at the moment. I thought a little
while growing up. suggestible as well. So just what Yeah, yeah, growing up. We had the cap with a ponytail. This must be we had like one of those. Yeah, it was the same thing. But I had a ponytail. So this must be the new age version with a new age. Yeah. All right. All right. Number 431 dollars.
It's perfect for adults who don't like the taste of water
all you need
all you needed to do is add water and the vivid colour sweet taste and fruity aroma will trick your brain it doesn't quite turn water into wine but it's certainly makes it taste different Pete pate I've so I'd like to start with who's it for this sounds like a general what's special really guy want to say it's a Gemma what's special and it's like I don't know it sounds like is it alcohol flavoured or cocktail flavoured?
Something called yield that you can add to water that's close any any other? I was gonna say like, sorry George. I was gonna say like
food colouring food.
Anything Jess? Well, I've just realised that we've already gifted Josh something so I don't know if it can be his that was
Okay, um well I was gonna say it was like a SodaStream flavour or something. Oh yeah, okay Josh but now I'm thinking jammin because
it into wine flavour. Oh no. So this is a cup and they've engineered it with the colour so it tricks your eyes and it's for your nose it's got a fruity aroma and so when you're drinking you're smelling the fruit and the taste of the cup when you lick the plastic is sweet.
And so when
you're a fruity guy
I thought it'd be Josh because he doesn't need his mount Franklin sparkling water. Just put in this cup. And you'll be swayed. That's great. Wait, why is Josh getting to present your Christmas shopping?
Is that effective coming up? Say yeah, baby,
All right, the last one is a little bit more expensive $170 better me for me.
all you need. This is all you need to make private calls in public. It helps you protect your speech and reduce noise pollution when talking on the phone. It's got a voice muffling mode, Bluetooth wireless connectivity, 10 hours battery life, and this product has a replaceable math pace, which you can claim or replace at any time.
Um, so this is some kind of like, bubble you put on your head.
Can you think sort of, it's a wireless headset, you've got a mouthpiece it's trying to virtue
The the sort of noise coming out of your mouth. I mean, I feel like it's for me. Sorry, Jess, because
I think cuz Josh had an issue with me talking in the office
to clients and brand stuff is that is that right? You've got it
absolutely what is what it is, is it's essentially think of the top band if your headphones and if you pulled your headphones forward whether so the band is covering your mouth you it has a math pace before into so it's isolating your mouth. So all that's happening is the microphones in there. And it's sound like God briefing your mouth so people can't hear what you're talking about. Wow. Oh my god. That's so funny. There's some crazy gifts out there.
That's all I got. Well done. That was
Who's it for and once and once we are clear on who we are seeking to serve, who we are trying to change, what is the change we are trying to make before
we go so all those people have been served and change has been made.
Another thing that's been happening lots this week, and we've just moving forward in productivity and that sort of thing is Josh has started talking about this idea of building a second brain.
I'm sure you've got some sort of pain. This is why you need to build a second brain. So the idea behind building a second brain, you know, notion, Evernote, Rome, drafts, all these things that we've been talking about, how do you capture things? It takes a lot of effort. There's a lot of effort in in building out that second Brian sales. Well, the second draft is great. Like I found that to be
The easiest thing so far I've just been so impressed in how drafts, sinks. It's not sinking
out yet, baby. I'm not joking. I've tried on three different devices and connected to the internet.
Have you turned yourself off and on?
Yeah, didn't work didn't work.
It's like so drafts is this thing that he's been talking about, which is basically a note taking device, which syncs to all your devices and stuff like that. I don't really see how it's better than any of the other note taking things you can still search for stuff and the other ones. Anyway, I paid for it. It's $2 99. And
not it just I was coming up with some error when I try and sync it to the computer. Just not impressed. not impressed, but it would be good to be able to remember stuff. Well, the other thing that's annoying about it is the bolt
font like it uses markdown to like for it to be like bold and feed a link all that sort of stuff like it's not even like you can't do command being bold it
like it's it's so annoying. Yeah, the shortcut. Yeah. Yeah, there's a lot that I need my shortcuts for sure.
I mean, hey, there was there was there was a time probably like two months ago where you were talking about bringing all of your stuff into notion. Yeah. So that was that was on it throughout our walks Josh since New Year. This was one of Josh's things in New Year's He's like, I've got everything dialled into notion notions, the one about two or three months before we all went into lockdown of walks. He finally every walk, he'd bring it up. Have you got notion yet? If you got notion, like now I'm a I'm a Google Docs guy. I'm a Google Docs guy. Anyway, eventually, I finally cracked and I started using notion and I was like, Oh, yeah, I could see the value in this. So I pulled all my Google Docs into notion. And I was on board and I've been using notion for the last few months. And then last week
Like I mentioned, I went for a walk and I called him and I was trying to get Josh back out of it and get him involved. And he's like, Alright, let me talk to you about the second brand.
And so he did the whole spiel that he talked about drops. And then the next day, he brought it up on the podcast as well. And I was like, Oh, he's gone all in on. Oh, yeah. And now he's like, he's having a crack at me for using notion and I'm like, I'm only using it because of you. You tell me
it's outrageous. I just, it's it's such a struggle, because I mean, Grace and I over the weekend we have because Josh has been pushing it as well. And so just like even like messaging Grace, Grace, you get to watch this video. It's like, it's like a two and a half hour video. A second bite. And so anyway, so we we downloaded drafts and we didn't like it and so we we've actually paid you should definitely check this.
It's cold bear. Where I think I can
sort of understand get behind the second brain thing I quote, I like it, I love the concept of it. And so I'm still using notion but where notion falls apart is quick note taking Hmm. And so just jotting down ideas, I don't know where to do that. It's like notion is like fully fledged built out ideas that are there. And so bear is the in between one where you can quickly write down things and it's got a little export function when you can export it once you've built out the idea and bring it into notion. So that's that's what grace and I are playing with at the moment.
Just couple things.
I actually like it as well, because I feel like I'm organising my notes rather than just being in like the Notes app on
the phone. You just write notes and they're all everywhere where now you can like tag them so they can all fall under a certain header and things like that, which is I find quite good. Is it shared do to have the sight of the ship.
gonna say that's kidding.
I need to figure out if there is sharing. I haven't gotten that far. So since since Josh and I spoke last week, and he he was off notion I was like, oh, stuff him. I'm getting off notion as well. So I've gone like I'm dialling it right back. And I am a huge fan of the text edit. app. Yeah, MacBook. It's literally just a plain text editor. Yeah, plain text editor, white background black text. And so I've gone I've gone all in on TextEdit. And now I've just got really simple, crisp, clear, plain text notes. And you can just use Ctrl F.
That's good, right? And so the font is like folders. I love this. I love the folders. So folders. So I have one folder, which is basically I call it like noodles or thoughts or ideas, whatever you want to call it. And then I just have topics as different documents. So there's one for coaching, one for mindfulness, one for blah, blah, blah. And then within that it's just a random array of notes. Okay, yeah. Can you format that?
With like, bold and stuff, no, not plaintext. So that would annoy me. Yes, they are. But I'm big on it now.
I mean, just just quickly on the noodling stuff when when GB and I were sort of coming up with ideas for the show, one of the things we thought about was seeing if noodling comm was available.
And so I went, I went out and we found that it was owned by someone and they've got like a, you know, messages to find the pricing. Do you know how much that domain costs? I the only reason I have an inkling is Josh told me on the phone last week when we were like, what he's like he was doing he's like, I'm gonna check if noodling.com is
like, $30,000 or something.
We didn't even run that passive, by the way. No,
no, that's just me thinking the same thing. Yeah. Well, Seth, Seth did a post called noodling and mentioned me and so he was talking about that, and he's like, Yeah, all right. So I'm going to look at that right now and get the domain for you.
So, yeah, I mean, is that is that a term that like we were talking a bit last week about coining a term? Would you say you've coined that term in that, that word? I don't think I've coined it. I think I've popularised it. Maybe I think it's a term that a lot of people use of, like, you know, I'm noodling on something I'm thinking about, I'm tinkering with something. And I think it's great. I've just, I've just used it so much that people now think that it's my word, but it's not my word. I just, I just use it a lot. It is. I mean, you've got everything dialled in pateley it like my with notes, I've been using notes.
Because I got up drossel that night, isn't she I'm just gonna
Yeah, and I was like, Okay, I'm gonna start organising stuff. So I set up a folder, BIG MEDIA COMPANY folder where I could like write ideas for Hump Day and the daily talk show and that sort of thing. And us do some building a second Brain Stuff. And eventually, like, Monday morning went up before I had the meeting with mice about today.
I was like, I just opened up my notes and I just literally looked at it sort of disappeared like it just didn't touch anything and it deleted itself
and like the boys give me shit all the time for my tech issues but I swear I didn't touch anything deleted off all my devices that deleted everything so
that your Apple notes none other than Apple notes is still there but just my notes like just my Whatever happened to me
really is why you need bear
because I'd written something down from age to guy and then mice like you wrote it down your notes and like all day deleted for some reason, and inside of sudden rewriting the night again, ah, how annoying Okay, yeah, plain text, you know, right. You're not lazy. Yeah, you're not losing. No one's attacking my plain text.
The other thing that happened this morning, actually just quickly on the on the tech stuff. Yesterday, I was having like massive issues with my internet and was heaped annoying.
And so I had to go and buy an emergency sim to use and plug it into the router and that sort of stuff. Anyway, today went on to get onto the computer.
And the router is not working. what's what's happening here? Turns out Spencer, my cat chewed through the power cord. Oh,
he's fine. Yeah, he's fine. But I was just like, because I was doing some troubleshooting and stuff. And I was like, no lights coming on. That's a bit we'd looked at the code and there's a little Nick in the power and like, oh my god. Luckily, I had a spare spare from external hard drive had the same code.
They just, yeah, just what do you what are you using for note taking? Because you do write like a, you know, in Google Docs all the time? Um, no, I just I went out of nartz most of the time, as well. Um, or Word document if it's a an actual document that needs its own name is in a Word doc or a Google Doc,
a Word document, I'll say
On Google Drive Microsoft Word, you still use Microsoft Word. Yeah.
It's still the best email platform. That's another thing that we do here at PMC is Spock. Oh, yeah, like right speaking about temperaments. Whoops, here.
That's one day in the office when Jess was sending me an email about every two seconds.
Yeah, I actually didn't do anything. It was just doing it himself. To me, he's like, What the fuck are you doing?
Every time it auto save the email it actually.
And so it's just like every few words it was just sending
Because the worst thing that I do as well is that I will write something generally and then sit down and come back and reread it. So checking for spelling errors and things like that. Just that it makes sense.
So yeah, that would have just been real annoying. I would have just sat on that for so long.
Well paying you out the most
dialled in person in the ground Scott I reckon
he's a little compilation of all the stuff that you're dialled in with. We've been doing a lot of a tom really dialled in on Black Friday, knife six or spens vs. Sheridan, I got myself a shiny new standing desk. I've moved from a bunch of stuff from Google Docs into notion is a guy who's got his diet dialled in. What's your gym routine, like at home? I've just been dialling in and I'm playing a drinking game with the prize dialling in so I'm just gonna keep using
it so dialled in and it's like you've got between 10 to 15 minutes little co working space where I'm dialled in doing some meaningful work with interesting people was kind of the thing that I was talking to Craig Harper about my applications would be slack and zoom probably because they're the way that I keep connected with everyone that I work with at the moment, Cadbury my assistant who was established, yes, he's in the kitchen cook my breakfast. It's all dialled in.
I'm pretty sure I
Got darlin from United States. I reckon I got that from you you reckon?
I reckon I reckon we've both gotten it from Josh. Yeah, definitely. That's a very Josh thing. Yes, aside dialled in.
I don't think I've ever said it until I take it out with you.
But it's good. I like it. It just feels happy. How are you finding these things? Cuz like I messaged you the other day because I've been looking for fish supplier. Yeah. I want to, I want to dial in the fish guy. I want to become the fish guy. And, and, and so like, I messaged up, I was like, Matt, where do you get your fish from?
Right. How are you finding? Like 70 you need to go to my fishmonger.
Do you really have your own fishmonger where you get
got the South Melbourne market? Well, I can't go at the moment but when the were able to go to the South Melbourne market, I've got a guy that I go to get my fish from him. Yeah. Oh,
What else what else have you got that just like? No, I get it from dialled in. I've got I've got a few things that I think I guess. I mean, I never say I'm a routine guy, but it's in hearing myself in all of those clips, I guess I've got a few routines. One of the one of the favourites out me and my girlfriend and I Tracy on a Fridays, we go to a burger place up the road, and I'll go pick up a couple of burgers and take them to her house and we'll sit down and have like Friday night drinks with a burger. And it's
it's so dialled in that like, like because we get the same thing every single Friday at the same time. And so like now I just call them and they're like, as I'm bigger 630 We'll see you then. Really awesome. I know my name they follow me on Instagram.
That's a good Yeah, so I've got it we got a we got a burger guy down the road as well. Yeah, that's fantastic.
Let's be real nice. Have you got anything doubting Jess? No.
narcotics have paid like if you Yeah, is that something? Do you only get your fish from a certain place or don't you don't eat fish? No, I do eat fish I'd say it's crayfish and shit like that. Like Should I donate? No I don't really literally I hate routine. I like I like retain but I hate retain at the same time if that makes sense. Yes. Do you get your coffee from the same place or something or not? I will sorry. I have to around my area
I've got a delivery This is very
Here we go. Here we go. What an exciting doorbell. Yeah, that's so excited. I've got a custom doorbell as well actually. Oh, really? What's your doorbell? can we can we go? No, sorry. You got JB your custom doorbell. Little Red Rocket.
It's so nice. The Oscars
So just quickly the other thing that pates got really dialled in, is just when we started this he's rocking bluetooth headphones at the moment and so they must have run out of battery or something because I can see it midway through he says running a
pair of headphones and he got on standby. presses a button and the back on and
it's wondering what he's done with he's just got a second pair of headphones just lying around Yeah.
On some charge, or he's running back here we can even add boots pee, not just in socks.
So I thought this was gonna be something more exciting which would have led to a good dial and story actually. It's just it's a few books from Amazon. That's exciting. That's good. You know I don't have a Kindle dial in your books into a Kindle. No, I've got a Kindle but I've just I like to take notes in the margins. Yes, I've got that dialled in. So
that is something up like taking notes that Josh underlining, do you underline in books you would Yeah, yeah.
Not as much as
Josh though, Josh, the other day, he was putting photos out. He was up to page 12 and there was 15 different I
wouldn't mind trying it, but I just I don't know.
Yeah, yeah. Don't ruin the book. Yeah. Self Help self development book, aren't they? Like you've got to kind of get through it. You can't you know, slap yourself I so I totally hear that. And that's why I use a grey lid. It feels less like in
the book less. Yeah. I mean, the other thing that came up this week, which you've also got dialled in, is your your clothing and your style.
was looking at he's doing a bit of a rebrand. It's a classic case of getting a girlfriend and then they want to dress you and I said, Hey, I can't be your style icon. You can't because he has been using me as his style icon. Go look at other places. Don't just wear what I wear. Maybe you could get some of the stuff that pizza
Where's pizza? Oh great style and so I was able to type in
Pete into my drafts and I gave Mason the link that where Pete shops and gets you stuff Why do you have the link
I asked him we try second Brian say where does paint shop then
he shopped at proper cloth comm
proper cloth duck
thank you yeah it's good I've actually there's two websites proper cloth comm is great for the nice collared shirt sort of situation or a suit if you want a suit serves. Okay great. And then if you just want like basics you tease Yeah, like sweaters jumpers. Son of a tailor is the other one really good. Really another Tyler? Yeah. Say something up. I wasn't trying to dread a dress or rain friend.
Cuz he was from one of the photos that was put up on the BAM say Instagram and Macy was like on it to get another pair of those pads. So we were just looking through said there were 12 v pants
was 25 year old pair yeah
12 he was just looking at pets on like the iconic and stuff like that and then Josh coals. Um, so yeah, that's that's the story declaring my name.
It stems from being too tall like nothing off the rack fits me. So yeah, both these websites is there like custom made?
Yeah, that looks really nice. Yeah, the thing is, I could I could get around I could get around this custom made even though every medium that
once you go once you go custom to you can't go back so I can be custom, custom, custom. Custom. This would be great. You get Christ to help you with the measurements.
Once you've got that dialled in, you put that in
Like you, yeah. sighs and then they just, they just keep making him What's wrong? That's so good. So yes, email them and be like, I want another hoodie. You've got my details. Click it online. Yeah. And then they'll they'll use the same size in your account and then away. Yeah, that's sorry. Cool, but you want to put on weight or lose weight? Really? No, I mean, it keeps you accountable. It definitely
keeps you exercised. Totally. Absolutely. So have you got initials embroidered on your ones?
