It's hump day
it's Hump Day replay Georgie boy here. skewed is already laughing last week I said upcoming straw and I didn't so I thought I'd come in strong this week I absolutely loved
last week Hi everyone I'm gonna
absolutely love that coming strong guy goes like that he's coming in from isn't like I'm gonna come in strong. I just assumed that you wrote it that way. Right I'm going to do is I'm going to say I'm coming in strong and then just faff about for a while and it was awesome. I loved it.
Well it is. It is the show about the show. It's a show about the daily talk show. We've got scooter Derek here, good friend of the show. You've been on the show. 17 times. Good lord. How crazy
crazy 17 times huh?
And also in the building. We've got producer Jess, thank you for coming on.
And it's nice to officially make
sure that you're producing Peter Haley's podcast at the moment. Yes. How's that going? What can you explain what a producer does? And what your role is for paint Haley's podcasts, you ain't say nothing yet?
Well, the word producer is a really tricky one as just with a
test. Now, I'm looking forward to some tips.
Well, I call myself a producer, it's on my email, you know, tag and all that. But sometimes you are sometimes you're sometimes a an engineer, sometimes I'm the editor, sometimes the producer. Yeah. You know, sometimes I'm the CEO. If I had a company right, it was this guy. So with with his one, it's awesome because I get to sort of run I get to record. You get to record the show and do the technical production. Do the do the sort of general stuff. design. He's used a couple of guys he knows obviously from the TV, some musical guys to make the jingle up and stuff like that. And I think the best one so if I was doing the ads, I didn't do ads before but these doing got a bit of sponsorship from a booze company. Oh, yeah. rhymes with bland 50s.
Josh lives need them.
Yeah, very, very near. And is great fun doing these little ads and you realise how it'd be awesome to produce songs to be used music, but just have to deal with three minutes.
Right. So what are the ads that I little pre rolls for the shows?
Yeah, funny stories. And, you know, it's it's like a sort of, it's sort of a scripted. Yeah, it's his. It's just him discussing it. But just a bit more fun. Little comedy snippet. Yeah, grab up booze.
Do you have much to do with his content on the actual show, though, because I feel like that's the most fun part of the job, isn't it? It's talking
It's number one it's so cool having all the top comedians coming in one at a time. Yeah, yeah. And getting to because obviously I produce a lot of dry stuff I do hedge fund podcasts and you know small business you know help ones and all the all these different topics and traumatic ones and crime and all this sort of stuff. And it's so good when the comedians in number one, they pull their head right back when they bellow so the mic is awesome. I don't know
what they're doing Yeah, you're just not breathing into the foreign into the way.
I feel like I just pop the mic every time I laugh I get
to namita I really
good at it because the stage because of the stage work. So so the singers but it's great fun because they just get stuck in in the the podcasts about movies, particular movie each episode. And that's just a widget because they you know, they just they start with movie and they talk about that a bit. But they're funny as they just the long form so good.
Yeah. Yeah, it's such a good concept like the format of it alone. I'll start with this snippet here because I think this is this is a good one to start with. It is from Episode 775. And it's about scooter and Jess your birthdays on the same.
Yes. Who's been working with us?
Hey, happy birthday.
Here also, happy birthday to scooter.
Oh, yeah. Happy birthday to you.
baby boy. Send
slightly weird, isn't it? Now I got it. Done. Did you get that text from Tony? I
did get it. Yeah, I did. I did. And then I went quick, and I scraped Just to put the show on.
didn't make it in time. What did you do for your birthday? I thought my heart What do you think Jess? I thought the your birthday song was a rehearsal. And the harmonies were so beautiful.
It was. So with yours as well. Yeah.
You guys actually are your birthdays on the same day?
29th Well, yeah,
I get that.
Do you want to? Like how did you tell?
It's a it's a tricky question, isn't it? Because I was born
so what's that? 6954
So you said that my dad, cuz you listen to Monday. So what do you say about what I said about Dad?
Yeah, I was watching away and you said something like, Oh, you were talking about Kenny?
Yeah, right. And that again, Kanye just got it.
It's my job to pick on pronunciate
You talk about Kanye and you guy. I imagine my dad and another old bloke sitting there talking about Kanye.
How funny would it be? My dad, some of the old God at dinner party talking about Kanye West.
Like, a minute.
Yeah. Yes. Like I was sitting there with my mic talking about Kanye executive. And I think I sent you a text saying you did mate.
Yeah, I couldn't work out what your text. I mean, you've been texting me a bit and I struggle
you've got a lot of sayings and a lot of like words and I don't think much of them we've had
Yeah, are you okay with the three letters I'm going to be using for your own show and stuff but
hedge dia. Oh, man,
let me send you a few and I thought he's gonna work it out. I sound
like acronyms sort of thing. Yeah,
they use me Donaldson Can I have an h a p
h i buy? Oh,
I see. He got that. I was the only was either and then one thing happy meal. Yeah.
But um, yes. I Tommy texted you about using Siri I thought he was the he's the biggest Siri user I know.
Yeah but you use Siri quite a lot now he he gave he must have given up and done it by hand.
Oh really? Look at the footage
yeah cuz he didn't want to send it to Siri was saying that he was telling the content and that is why I use Siri this morning I had some fun and I got a great thrill out of sitting in the car gang. Hey Siri, up SMS King George the sixth
series guy. Your messages ready? King to King George V. Ai?
Yes. Gouda asked me for my number and I sent it to him. And then he sent me a screenshot saying Oh, no wonder I couldn't find it because I'm saved in his phone. as King George the six ha ha Martin. It was that thing?
I don't know. Just have just like to get a bit novel with naming.
It's an empowerment, you know. People, people that always like to give people nicknames. Yeah, it's a it's like a recognised maybe I'm self searching a bit much but I reckon it's a power trip. I've always been really. It's been my thing Josh does it a bit too. He's decided to call me scooter. Yeah. And it's it's what you want. You want a name to stick? What's your one?
Yeah, it's just sort of changed. Judy bass Georgie Georgie Georgie boy. Yeah,
Jess, you don't really have one. Um, we decided what my nickname
George. jumpy, Jess. jumpy, Jess. That one. We got rid of that one. Okay.
He suggests that and then snack.
I'm trying to make it happen.
Somebody someone on the YouTube chat the other day. Josh ended up deleting them because it distracted all of us. Yeah. I mean, I guess you would have someone commented saying she looks like a bit of a snack. When she found out that we got rid of it, she was pretty pleased.
Me I was like, embrace it. Tape it up.
Do you call many people on using Siri? It's good.
I do now if I'm in the car Yeah, I do it every day. Really? Every day. I was like, hey, the kids impersonate me. I get like Siri they go if I ever say hey Siri call Fiona on speaker
Oh, she's caring literally activate your
universal voice Yeah.
The kid kids go. Calling Fiona is by Esther up and her her maiden name is Hague, which is German ha a bi ch. And we always have fun with Siri because she says calling Fiona
you texted me the other day saying that you? You reckon you can claim credit for Hump Day replay
yet why Yep, yep I'm calling this has been huge. Is there an audio way of putting
running the run the run the
run the banners exclusive.
So it's all about school holidays as you know, my kids are downstairs colouring in or something because school holidays just trips you all up Mandarin
Mandarin flavoured crayons? Yes.
They stinking up the place
flavoured colouring pencils. But um,
when school holidays happens, you can't. Well, you probably can now, but traditionally, it's the end of daily talk show for me. It's a it's a time heavy show. If you're a regular if you're a gronk Yeah, you're it's time heavy. Like you've got a show every single day now on the weekends. And it was twice a day for a while. So that's great. If you can my commute It's a dream come true. You can even just sit in the car and wait for the end. So thing if you get there too soon and all that, but, but school holidays, that's different. You got the kids there in the car, I might swear or whatever. It's too late now for my kids. But it's cool as the end of it. That's why I was like, Oh yeah, come on and do Hump Day replay. And I was going, but Oh, fuck. I haven't heard any episodes from the last week. So I've been cramming. Yeah, absolutely cramming. So listening to Oh, that's why you're getting all these texts guy.
Oh, it's been great.
Just episode by episode you just fine.
Yeah. And my point is that during school holidays, you miss out and then you get back onto it and you've got stuff that's referred to in jokes gronk talk, you know, stuff that you you've missed. You know, it's like, Where do I jump back on? It's not you can but it's really not the kind of thing if it just fits into your routine to go back and catch up. It is for me because of this, but, but normally not. So I was saying to Josh, ah, can't you do some kind of mash up? Really just to run through all these things so gronk like make and sort of know what the fuck you're talking about know who did what whether someone had a hissy fit, you know while DJing Friday night drinks? Always Yeah, definitely. Oh, yeah, well, yeah, just a catch up thing. So it was a while ago when I was like having a whinge about the absence of that. So now here we are just maybe,
just maybe, how do you feel about that? I'm fine with that.
Yeah. If I
wasn't your ID. How did it start? I think Josh actually asked me he said like maybe we could do a, like a weekly wrap up videos on that. And it could have just been a bunch of snippets to sort of cut together, but then I turned it into whatever Hump Day replay was. And then the podcast the idea for the podcast. came like, three days before we recorded the first episode. And so we thought of it on Thursday. Then we recorded it like on the Monday, but on the Thursday we thought of it. Alright, let's go do the artwork, took the photos, did the artwork, basically, then it goes on, which is what I love about these places, just like it's always just like waking up the next thing that's so good. Just
jump in and go. Yeah, I kind of regret that bother Nick. Exactly. Um, so how do you feel about going from video? To audio?
Yeah, I mean, it's out of my comfort zone. But it's good.
I think you're doing an epic job. Like just like this, like the prep that goes into it as well. Just like you having the confidence to lead it like I think it's Yeah, thanks. Pretty cool.
But you know what I want to bring back if we can in some capacity. The skits?
Yeah, that'd be good.
Maybe just on Instagram story. Yeah,
cuz that would be fun. The skits were ground
skits were hilarious. They were the thing that was like causing me the most Stress right? But yeah, if you can just think of like one skit or one screenplay that Yeah, before this gets into what everyone loves about me
speaking of winning I think this is quite a good snippet from from this week which I'm sure you have some thoughts on.
I'm not gonna have a blow up I'm not gonna get pissed off
seriously, I'm not
actually I'm definitely don't but the fucking seat situate the chair situation at this office. He's pissing me off. I don't feel like I have a desk. And the thing is that I would love for you to look after the mixer. Isn't it set up now? Can you just move it that's what we thought I thought the fucking mic stand was set up. It sounded like a bit of a fucking cat on the sorry, from language. I sounded like a bit of an asshole. Car friendly.
But this there's so many points so I know we could go up an hour.
Well, let's start with the chair. You're sitting on Josh's chair right now how is What do you reckon?
Look it's not bad it's it's a coincidentally I've just been through a week of chair shopping.
We should point out quickly that Josh did get a new chair jack. Tommy bought him a new chair. And that's the one that you're sitting on down to
IKEA picks it up Yeah,
well, it's a comfortable chair. You know what I'm doing now? It's like a you know, when you're I feel like you get some new tech and you check some stuff or you might get it someone might show you their camera. Yeah, whatever news kinda have a little look over it quietly. Or my hands are just quietly now feeling underneath not for chewy for the
toggle. So how many
leavers there are because because I write I'm writing to this right now. It's my thing. Because I've been chair shopping. And the the cheaper the chair the less leavers there are, the less the less sort of adjustments. Yeah, sure. So we've got one lever so far, but that probably doesn't multiple multiple functions doing
what you're moving in and out. Yeah. I don't know what that Maybe that's looking back, maybe go back more
to the gas like the chair. It's very comfortable.
Is it economic?
Yes. There's enough water in your back. Yeah,
yeah. feels right. You sitting up straight?
Yeah. It's pretty good.
I mean, is there anything for Josh to continue to complain about? Oh, can we call this a successful purchase? Can we close the loop? Who bought the chair Tommy, secretly? As a surprise?
Can I say sorry, to cut you off there? Do you know what Tommy did? What? This is my chair, right? Yeah. He's given me he's old one. Oh, that's a brand new E.
This is huge.
So you just you're sitting on a ship chair. The Tommy's got one. That's a much better condition. Yeah.
Cheers really are the last thing you think of? Ridiculous. Yeah, you can sit in a studio that's really got 100 grands worth of shit in it. And then the very last It'd be like, I'm actually sitting here for 10 hours a day. On a plastic fuckin stackable chair. That's what I was doing in studio to really I've got a full Ergo like $800 one in the other studio. And then I thought I like it better in here. And I was like doing 10 hour editing shifts sort of thing in a plastic stackable chair. Just a plastic, you know, like the someone put out in a cafe. I thought this is ridiculous.
It's embarrassing. The other thing to unpack out of that was this a bomb?
Yes. Because I because like I said before I was cramming and so I thought I'll just bang it on while I'm driving along with the kids. We got a bump in the car with the kids and I and I had to have you know, I had to talk about that one because the kids when I say ah you know, don't swear or whatever. Yeah, they kind of you know, they when they hear someone else do it, they do it. I go for it. You know if you say
then you say to voice hear two voices going back
But I had to go in and turn it down I went, right. You can't say it. Yeah, don't joke about it. Don't say it. It but then then I thought I'm done. I said, Don't ask about it. Not right now. But just it's not funny. Don't say it. It's, you know, it's the rudest thing to some to many people the rudest thing. Right. So don't do it. You won't get invited to any parties or anything. And
then the horrible the dreaded question, but what does it mean?
So then I had to say, What if there was confusion as to
why it meant that why
Yeah, why Why are you saying that?
Oh, yeah. Don't worry about it. Just trust me on this one. Just don't say it. That's okay. Because I've got it. I guess going back a bit. I've got a bit of history of that. This We having an interest in the C word on the daily talk show because when I went to America, they felt like there was a deliberate. Let's not say can't anymore.
can I say it on this show? Yeah.
I'm referencing somebody else. Exactly.
It felt like though there was a, there was it was like the first hint of censorship or deliberate, you know, sort of deciding what goes into the show. And I was like, Ah, come on. So I see why you've got to, you know, stick with it. And so I am kind of more than happy to have to have the talk with the kids in exchange for freedom of expression. Second Amendment, whatever.
I mean, the other one you will you are loving tiny lunches episode. That was on the other day.
She was she was great. Wasn't Yeah, yeah. So my final I got halfway through. Yeah, when I had to come. Come here. So I was cramming and cramming. And it was a long one too. Oh, yeah. And that's great cuz I look forward to going back in like an hour and a half. Yeah, yeah. Awesome stuff it got to start getting into psychologists and stuff like that. Mm hmm. Where I got to, but yeah awesome.
Yeah like you're saying it's it's up to the boys whatever they want to put out you know when Telly was on that was pretty full on there's no one not a radio station you can do whatever you it's pure gold
when someone sits there next to saves and just straight up says I roll
my eyes twitching twitching of eyes
and yeah hang on we didn't know like you seem like a real jokester. I
would love it if you said Arman's in the next days eating almonds and then you're like no joke. I was fucking just I came
up with a word.
I was joking when I said I know sex.
Like that company's saves his face. Got know what to do with that? Yes,
it's the shock. It's a surprise like yeah
Yeah, it's the other story UK I think for the wake was Tommy's Facebook and Instagram,
jumped onto my Facebook ad, there's been some activity that we think isn't you, you can't use Facebook because you want to get this claim. So I thought again, let's just get this claim place. Your account has been disabled. You can't use Facebook, because your account or activity on it didn't follow a community standards. My counts gone. I don't have Facebook anymore. My Instagram account has been completely removed. You're done. I've had two internal requests lodged at Facebook. We've got you in because we want you to coach me out of a dark hole. I lost my Instagram and Facebook. update on that. It's been escalated within Facebook. I got an email last night so I'm fucking happy. That's another story. I'm fucking depressed about my Facebook and Instagram. Alright guys, this week, I'm also going to create a new Facebook page and Instagram account if I don't get it back. I had a great weekend. The highlight of mine was getting a text message from you. You've got your Instagram back
that rod rod from BHS play Gary, he was the one who found out that Tommy got his Instagram page back and he tagged Tommy and us in the Insta story and that's how we found out what how ridiculous is that?
But how did he How did he know? I don't know.
How many Instagram accounts Do you have skewed? Ah I
don't know. I just don't know anymore
All right, can I follow about five
there's quite a few. And it's like Josh and his comms are better do that better do that. Let me think is good hostel a scooter labs skill Sky Studios, which is primary. And scooter Derek students as good as me Derek.
Yes, no one
is poo crimes. Oh, I haven't
Was this one
what is that one about? Oh, you know, my world is in podcast Your voice is true crime everywhere and I don't know on a whim I thought maybe a crime some crime content might be just about when people leave dog poo on the footpath
thought I'll just grab it anyway. So boo crimes was just shaming.
I haven't pre crime.
Do you not like to report? Okay. Oh,
Tommy's already said it on the show. But Tommy and I were driving the other day and this chick just dropped her pants fully did a shit on the side of Victoria straight. Oh, that is this paragraph. It's
not rageous level. It was just there. It was just
what time of day,
like two o'clock? That is ridiculous. I mean, it's like there's a little alleyway near the office, and that has just got shit in it. It does. Hate walking through it. It's just
Can I Take over maybe we should have like access to his account so that
you can have it probably belongs in this area.
Oh, we have a little poodle poo.
We skinny you are prolific online. I love on my Facebook I always scroll through and I've always got all these random videos like I think I saw one the other day of you holding like a laser tag thing on your chest and you've actually got the
Yeah, what laser line so you were lying on a couch, I think. And you've got some green light on your chest. Yeah. And you're so the
kids have got laser tag. So you get a little harness and that light is your target. Right and that's connected by a wire to your gun. So the kids own laser tag. I was watching TV or something. And the kids forced they gave me a gun and strapped me on and said let's go
you're just on the couch.
They shooting you
Yeah. Shouldn't maybe I shouldn't even cover it up? They can't you just cheat. And when they're not looking to turn off and on again and reset your score, oh, Friday.
I'll never know. But the other
Yeah, same thing. Like the videos you post are amazing. I can't figure him out. But I want to play this one too. Can you explain what is going on in this? Okay, what is this?
The most important way to get this all through? Please share it. If I could turn back time.
What the hell is that?
So just explain it quickly. So you're sitting on a big cannon?
Yeah. So everyone over 40 already knows what it means. Okay, great. So sitting on a candidate. You know, who shares
we grew up saying Sure. Yes, I thought it was share but but the access I share, right. So they call her share. So I guess I was making a gag. I was walking with the kids down through northcutt through Westgarth. And there's these huge cannons and I went up, come here and hold the camera and it took so many takes because the kids hold the camera wrong and losing focus their focus not the cameras focus and, and walking back onto the road and that took a while. But there's a video clip where Cher is sitting on a battleship. And she's straddling this huge cannon kind of sexy like a like it's a fat, big phallus. So she sings the song from sitting on a cannon. And that's the song If I could turn back time, right so much either, but I just thought, Ah, you got to do the opportunity sharing, you know, bay area, which is a bad dead guy.
I was gonna say you loved him mortified at this point as well.
I didn't know what was going on. Why Are we doing this and you know what, though? A big metal cannon on a cold autumn morning. Oh,
I couldn't feel my really upper Lake area.
Walking like a cowboy. soulful.
Can we talk about your segment idea? scooter texted me before the show. He said, I've got an idea for a segment.
Yeah, remind me what it was.
Is it was what do you get from the daily talk show?
Yeah. Because, like I'm constantly getting stuff from the daily talk show people. Hey, put your waterproof pockets on boys. Back to peace in them.
Oh my God, that's an expression meaning giving you compliments, like hotcakes. So
So I guess I get huge amounts from this show. It's not about me. But it can be a good segment here. Because obviously there's so much different shit going on than ever. I noticed this different stuff. I can't really loved. I love it when it's just the crew talking absolute shit, right and you know, getting grumpy and whatever or getting happy again. Whatever I love that's my favourite. Right and then guests like Tony Yeah, absolutely this kind of thing just getting on and being themselves and you know that's my favourite, and I don't I'm not as excited by successful people you know like talking about how they made it and stuff like that I like the banter and yeah like the other day I like dickheads Yeah. So that's my thing so and what I get out of that is also great and professionally huge amount of stuff because it's fascinating to see what you know my future will be having people like you guys in my not you guys know you know what I mean? Like just to see how that how that rolls and you know how to handle that. So it's fascinating for me, I get more out of it than it probably anybody professionally, but, but, uh, I reckon all the gronk would all have a different thing they really get out of it, whether it's just belonging, you know, you know, dealing with loneliness or all the way up to technical help. And all the way up to, you know, yeah, all kinds of like, personal advancement and things like that. I just reckon I'd be fascinated to hear what everyone's getting out of except must be different, because that could not possibly be thousands of people all the exactly the same. So,
I mean, yeah, I mean, this, this has been, what the firt the first job I ever had, and then build all your friendship groups around it. And then, you know, obviously Christ as well. So I got a lot.
So going back going back to, I guess, when you were a listener. Hmm. So when you were a listener, probably gave you the confidence to contact them.
Yeah, yeah. Well, yeah, I think I mean, it's that there's that provement sort of thing. And it's not like you've got to, I feel like Tim Ferriss is a little bit hard to relate to, because he's like, it's coming from like a highly optimised place. Whereas this, it's like, you can actually acknowledge that Tommy and Josh, like, you know, they've screwed up in this learning MA in the thick of the learning. And so, I think I think that's probably what I got mostly out of it. Yeah. Yeah.
Yeah. I think this time, it's like, it's constantly learning everything. From being in the building. It's definitely a place where things are always moving and moving quickly. And if you if you have an idea for something, it's like, do it right now. With it, yeah. Don't think about it for a month or whatever. Just try it and
see what happens. Similar to what you were saying in that working with the guys. It's very quick.
And they give anything a shot and I think it's their
passion for everything. I have never met more passionate people and more people that have so much drive make something work. And I think that's that's energising to be around. Definitely.
Yeah. That's something that it's clear in the in the show. It's like, these guys believe in what they're creating. Yeah. And that's contagious as well.
Yeah. I'd like to hear what the gronk say. I'd like right. Yeah. How would you get the info? Good idea.
Sorry. Yeah, we'll pull. I don't have the I don't have access to the stats, but we can see what they enjoy most in terms of episodes, whether it is more like the business and entrepreneur side of things, or the comedy side of things, or just us talking shit. Fat Fridays. I'll bring it up for you. I love to blow up.
The car crash.
Yeah, lobster grind.
I remember as a listener, like I loved the ones where it was like Ron john, and the boys talking about freelancing. Talking about client work and that sort of thing. I thought that was super interesting. The boys are very meta. And we were talking about you know, they love poetry. Seeing numbers on Instagram and that sort of thing. What do you think about that?
It's a, it's a big question mark right now, or reckons for me. I'm, you know, I'm happy to just go on a deep dive and I'm a refresher, I admit it, oh, refresh and see if there's any more stats coming up. And I can't wait for the new stats from my own stuff. But that's all my own productions have always been, you know, not Am I gonna make it to the charts? Just kind of, Oh, that's nice. 100 you know, doesn't doesn't matter, my personal show. But now, since I've been doing the Helier thing, it's sort of it matters now. You matters. You need to, you need to grab that the screenshots of the of the charts and you know, it's part of it to exponentially grow. People need to trust it. People walk past an empty restaurant not go in. So if it's already full, they'll stand and wait for
a table in Late I got into charts
show I got into Josh ritualize which
was a joke from the episode one but then it actually ended up happening did the screenshot it was Joe Rogan Hey mission Andy I'm 35 in the public but then when it was gone pay to hell he is one took my spot. Really? Yeah I think I actually took a screenshot she was quite funny cuz i
sorry about that oh, this is gonna be a
what? Like what chart is all Australian?
Yeah, no just comedy talk shows but it's like on the on the iPhone if you go into top shows it's the first four that sort of come up. It's probably producing Yeah, yeah, I got the screen. I'll send it to you. But yeah, it's probably like a pretty far down the line, but it was it was there. And then we went into society and culture and it got up to 22
And you're really tracking I
completely forgot about it. And, and the daily talk show was 110. So that smashed him.
Yeah. Well, I mean, I think it's just on the like the posting of numbers and stuff to social, like, I think one of the things around all the big like networks, whether it's like TV or radio, no one's really getting the numbers directly from any of the publishers. And I think there's probably like that little bit of disconnect, because you're listening, but you don't, you're not feeling sort of like you're on the journey with them or that you're a part of it. Whereas if you can say, Oh, hang on, I'm one of those people. I started early on here. And I've been apart watching that graph track upwards. Like I think it's just really an inviting thing when when you can come along and be like, I started here and look where we are now. And it's a whole like team effort.
Yeah, that's a good argument for the positive.
Yeah. What's the negative it's also a good flex. Yeah, I mean, yeah. Same avatar. Yeah. As a listener, you're like, Yeah, I was listening since getting when they were getting 5000 downloads a month or something. Yeah, I think Tommy was saying that. It's, it's probably, you know, getting a lot of people in the industry thinking like, why are we hiding our numbers? Like, what? Because the ship?
So the guys early days, I'm obsessed with numbers and I and I would if Josh Let me have a look at these numbers. I'll be like, yes, it was like an ice cream trait. It was like yeah, cuz it cuz I be interested and we you know, we compare things and have a look and stuff. Non competitively. And I love looking at the numbers. So, so I know that when you guys have published your numbers in the past, you've done it without numbers, because it was all about the growth path. So in if you look in the history of what you've published, you're doing it with numbers now.
Potentially, I mean, Josh, Josh, did that screenshot maybe going forward? We will do numbers like I
did. In the last one was just Yeah, yeah. The
Exactly. Yeah. I mean, I think it's, for me, it's like that behind the curtain sort of vibe. Like I think I think that's probably the most interesting part of it. And it's like, you know, like, III get that feeling. I was like, man, like, I would love to know the numbers of these big podcasts. And it just feels like it's a bit of a secret that you've been letting on.
Yeah. Can we talk about the 24 hour commitment club? So basically better commitment for her. Yeah, sorry. I screwed it. He's still part of the question. Yeah. So long
ago did it that was like, what, two months less than two months ago, two months ago?
He was like my, yes. Okay. We were looking at some videos of it the other night, and we were like, jeez, it feels like a year ago. Yeah. So basically, we did a 24 hour livestream. And there was a commitment crew, who was maybe like 10 people or something in a zoom call. And the idea was that we would throw to them throughout the night throughout the day, and screw that you were in that committee. mean crew. How was it?
Great. I'm a member of a club that is called the things we don't normally do club.
Yeah, like similar life hack. Yeah, a lot
like life hack. So they're just it's that commitment to go. Oh, that's weird. That'll be awful. Yes, let's do it. Maybe not awful, but in this case, but it was great. It was great. any excuse to do something weird. You know, without you know, it's not it's not in your app. The front of your brain going What am I going to get out of this? It's nice to just go. does not even have that thought just to go. What's going on? This is weird. Let's do it. That sounds like fun. What do we do? What does it mean, physically? At what did you call me? 6560?
Physically, it's a bit hard to stop or not.
We were so impressed with everyone. Like do you think that we through to you enough throughout the night day, felt like we are It was great.
Cuz cuz, you know, I was inside Josh's head. You know, I was just all the time guy. This is so easy for me at any point, there's no way I could say, throw to me or do anything. I don't know how anyone could could put it that that was a miracle, but oh so impressed for him to be able to handle all of that and then handle that. Yeah, well, having the waiting room.
It's pretty. I mean, that's wild. Yeah. I mean, Charles the bot. I mean, like that. I was surprised like, considering that we didn't have any real tech difficulties like he didn't go off once the live stream. It was all fine. Like, it's pretty crazy. No guest cut out. It's pretty insane.
That was another example of just like coming up with an idea, but we're doing it right now. Yeah, figure it out as we go. You could spend months planning, planning and getting all the tech right and the tech was pretty good, but yet Charles 17 years Cade from mind blowing was, was in the greenroom in vMix. Basically bringing all the guests in Yeah. Talking to Steph classmates and talking to Pete Murray and, and waiting for genuine for the ride ready and move them in. And that was great. That was such a fun day.
How super covert? Is that? Where's your 17 year old school kid?
Yeah, yeah. And
next minute, you've got Pete Murray and you know, like a whole bunch of famous people in your waiting room while you're sitting in your bedroom. Yeah. And they're going I guess this is the way the world is, you know, it's not like, this is not like this is beneath me or weird. This is just how we lead world everyone's in right now. That's awesome.
Yeah, I mean, it's a it's a real point in time. Like he really what what happened? And just like, I mean, yeah, I mean, people were just like, bit unsure of what's going on. There's uncertainty and to think that, I mean, Charles was, you know, willing to be a part of that and to do that was Yeah, it's pretty
epic. So Good. But before we did the 24 hour livestream, that was his hard slog, these rush to get all these merge printed. And Scotto was instrumental in getting that done. And basically, we came up with the idea for merge on the Sunday. And we were recording the 24 hour live stream I think the following Monday, so it was about a week was the stream of fraud.
I not, was it a fraud?
Oh, yeah, it was. It was. Yeah, sorry. So it was five days I think. We literally had to design the shirts and jumpers get them printed and shipped and delivered by Friday. 7am. Ridiculous. But Skoda you were you were the man who did it. So thank you. So
short shop a couple of times along.
I just thought I'd play this little clip from. I think it was probably the cheese day or something like that.
Have you got an update in regards to the match? It is a hectic thing to ask me. screen printer to do so I thought, well, I'll use my proximity and go in and maybe help cap stock or make sure we can move forward quicker.
How close is D on a friend? What do you say? What do you reckon Josh is better friends with you or you're better friends stay on?
Well, I would it would happen. I reckon it would happen just as easily or, or better if you were handling it. But when
you want to be involved as a field,
you said that you never actually got your own merge from that merge run. That's true. I forgot to what I forgot. you organise, busy as you organise all these crewneck jumpers and T shirts. So I think we're going to present you now with your very own daily talk show merge. Oh, there we go. Here we go. Here we go. Thank you, sir. The crewneck there. Oh, and the grump t Oh that is that's
that's good timing because I have lost my DTS hoodie a serious I cannot believe it that it's gonna be somewhere but I've lost the hoodie and and also like a like 250 or Patagonia towel on some way I've taken my gear off some strip joints I'm so annoyed that he's fainted thank you and then when I find it, it's good to freshy I definitely don't put it on now but you know there's a camera
so I can tell you a photo off to it. Yeah, we'll get a photo. Thanks so much for coming on the show cicada. Thanks for having me. Thanks for listening, everyone. Thanks, Jess for coming on. Joe. You'll be on a lot.
You can find scooter on Instagram, scooter, Derek. And then also Castaway studios is where you do all your coding wants to do with studio to
so much fun. Yeah,
I mean they all the time.
What's the diff? So what is studio two? What Studio One?
So Studio One was used was the studio that sort of evolved out of? I don't know for no real reason. That's how it all happened. Yeah, it was used to be a machinery room. So semi soundproof and our build a studio in and that went really well but studio two is a big room. So there's room for small audience and multi like we there was a Harley in there doing a photo shoot last week and, and stuff like that. So it's good. It's a shit time to open a new studio because of COVID. But it's also a good time to have a bigger studio because you can actually, you know, you have people can actually use it and stay well away from each other. Yeah, sure. So the idea is, also you can control it from the other end of the room.
So Castaway studios, you're leasing out podcast space, you're also doing photography and that sort of thing.
Yeah. So studio was designed as a multifunction room. Mm hmm. So it is. I was, I think last time I was on the show with Pete, Shep. It was just kind of Coming up with the concept and now it's done. But it's the curtains roll back. And it's just an empty White Room. People can use it for video shoots and stuff because of the nice acoustics. So because it's for podcasts, so it's generally for streams really for like a live streaming podcast. So if someone does it does a podcast regularly and they want to, they want to do a big one, then they can have, you know, 20 or 30 audience and stream it from there still have you not be in a venue with all the echo and all the carry on the sound of bar glasses clinking and stuff. So it's the meat. It's just a midwife. We'll see if it works, but it's sort of a in between. Sounds great. Sounds exciting. Lots of fun to be had.
And listen to Pete Haley's podcast. You I say nothing yet. Yes. recorded and edited at Castaway studio. Thanks guys for Hump Day rape on Instagram, and I'm The radio.com is up and running right? websites right next week
