[00:00:00] GB: [00:00:00] someday replay the show about the daily talk show. And look guys, we're back with the cast from episode number one,
[00:00:24] Jack Post: [00:00:24] we've got grace.
[00:00:25] GB: [00:00:25] Mason and hosts of Jackie Rose studios, a sidekick on Christian O'Connell show and lucky number six on Hamish and Andy podcasts.
[00:00:35] Jack Post: [00:00:35] Nice to be back guys. Am I the first returning guest?
[00:00:41] A second?
[00:00:44] GB: [00:00:44] Yeah, your second. But, um, but you, you were on the round show as well. So this is the first time we've had, like, I would say you're the third. You've been on three times now.
[00:00:52] Jack Post: [00:00:52] Oh yeah. But that ring around show was like,
[00:00:54] GB: [00:00:54] Awesome. It was absolutely.
[00:00:58] Jack Post: [00:00:58] I was going to say it doesn't really count. [00:01:00] It's like you're a guest on the episode.
[00:01:02] No, that's fair. Does it? I dunno. It's your show. You can choose when it does can. And when it doesn't count,
[00:01:09] GB: [00:01:09] look, I'll say that yet. You're the first person to be on three times.
[00:01:12] Jack Post: [00:01:12] Thank you.
[00:01:12] GB: [00:01:12] Thank you. Thank you for coming back.
[00:01:14] Jack Post: [00:01:14] No worries.
[00:01:15] GB: [00:01:15] And grace and Mason are still together.
[00:01:20] Jack Post: [00:01:20] I didn't expect him to depart George. You got to remember in the first episode where we were, when I first met you, grace. You and Mason were holding hands while we recorded the episode. I think that's a sign that you've got to last more than a day. A couple of months,
[00:01:34] Mr. 97: [00:01:34] also slightly awkward. If we have broken up doing hump day together,
[00:01:40] Jack Post: [00:01:40] contractually obliged
[00:01:43] GB: [00:01:43] my life away.
[00:01:44] I'd appreciate it.
[00:01:45] Jack Post: [00:01:45] I'm very happy for you guys. How have you found the, uh, the first, what is it now? Six months. Yeah, six
[00:01:50] Grace Peris: [00:01:50] months. Um, I found it great. I mean, lockdown threw a spanner in the works, but I think we thrived throughout that
[00:01:59] Jack Post: [00:01:59] time, but [00:02:00] you're staying together on your you've spent all of lockdown together.
[00:02:03] Well, so you went from never having men to not being allowed to leave the house and spending every day with each other.
[00:02:13] Mr. 97: [00:02:13] It's quite outrageous, but we've right. Absolutely.
[00:02:19] Jack Post: [00:02:19] Yeah. And why don't you go in the same room? I mean, you're in separate rooms doing this. Why don't you just sit next to each other and hold hands?
[00:02:25] Like we did.
[00:02:28] Grace Peris: [00:02:28] Very cute. Mason says no.
[00:02:31] Mr. 97: [00:02:31] Yeah. The audio, the audio.
[00:02:35] GB: [00:02:35] So Jack Jackie road studios, you've uh, you've pretty much wrapped up almost. You've got like one more. Interview.
[00:02:43] Jack Post: [00:02:43] Yeah, I've got, so this is my podcast for, just for people. I don't want to assume that people know what it is, but where I interview somebody and then write a song based on something that comes up in the interview.
[00:02:54] I've got Christian is my next guest Christian O'Connell who I do the breakfast show with on gold is my guest [00:03:00] next Monday. And then I haven't decided if I'll do. One more guest after that, or if that will wrap up the season, you know, what I'm worried about is I made all these promises for the end of the sear series.
[00:03:11] Like I'm going to give away a guitar and draw a raffle system, and then I'm going to release all the songs as an album. I've made all these promises and announced, starting to think like, Oh, I haven't nice.
[00:03:23] GB: [00:03:23] I was wondering like, What, what is the process from here to, to get the album?
[00:03:27] Jack Post: [00:03:27] Great question. Right.
[00:03:30] Mr. 97: [00:03:30] I mean, even the, even the guitar give away as well, because I mean, George mentioned it to me before he said, yeah, You haven't actually gone back and check who's emailed you. You've actually just relied on people message again, saying that they have emailed you and that's an entry to win the guitar.
[00:03:45] Jack Post: [00:03:45] Yep.
[00:03:45] On it. It's an honesty system so far, but everybody who has written and said, Hey, you have read my email app. That's how you get a raffle ticket to go. And when the guitar has actually referenced a real email, that's been on the show. So I trust, I guess [00:04:00] that isn't foolproof though easily, but. Uh, I dunno if, if they fall me and when a guitar good on them,
[00:04:11] GB: [00:04:11] what's been the biggest, uh, music trick that you've learned your record,
[00:04:16] Jack Post: [00:04:16] probably the C major chord.
[00:04:18] GB: [00:04:18] Beautiful.
[00:04:19] Jack Post: [00:04:19] Can you guys hear that?
[00:04:25] Oh, that's so good. If you need me to do any, um, No, I already knew the same magic code, but if you need me to do any, uh, like, um, interludes, or do you have a musical interlude in this podcast?
[00:04:36] GB: [00:04:36] No, bring one in, but the thing is like some of the snippets that will play out, they've got music underneath. I wish I'd known because then I could have got you to just do live.
[00:04:48] Jack Post: [00:04:48] better. You want me to lay down a whole lot of music so you can use it underneath the snippets? Yeah. Or you want, you want me to time the music? So it's like, okay guys, let's make a snippet out of the next 30 [00:05:00] seconds. Let's go in. You're meant to be doing like telling a joke.
[00:05:22] but what was the question before I was just talking about, Oh, what was my biggest musical learning?
[00:05:28] GB: [00:05:28] Yeah. Musical learning.
[00:05:29] Jack Post: [00:05:29] Oh, I learned a hell of a lot. I could, and I set up the studio. Without really knowing how to record music. I'd use garage band before, which is like the standard app that all Macs come with garage band, but I've never actually properly tried to record music on my own.
[00:05:47] And you can even hear from, if you go back to the very first podcast and listen to the song on that podcast versus how the songs are coming out. Now, there's been a huge learning curve that you can hear [00:06:00] that I've gone. Can you guys hear the train or not? Nah, no.
[00:06:04] GB: [00:06:04] Oh, this is a new train line.
[00:06:05] Jack Post: [00:06:05] This is the new train.
[00:06:09] That's good to know that you can't hear, this is the first test to, to fill people in. Again, I had to move out of Jackie road studios, which is just my bedroom and they shut down a whole street and elevated the train line across the road up until a sky rail. So now it runs in a bridge up above our house, essentially, but it is meant to be lighter track technology so that it doesn't make as much sound.
[00:06:37] But the fact that you guys couldn't hear that is great news because I did during lockdown, I did the radio show from in here a little bit. And you know, Christians talking about all this stuff coming up on the show and then a train we just made
[00:06:54] Oh, the seven 20 is going through Coburg at Jack's house at the moment, but this is a huge [00:07:00] improvement. So I'm happy. That's good. That's good.
[00:07:02] Mr. 97: [00:07:02] Is there a shatter now? Like noticeable shadow,
[00:07:06] Jack Post: [00:07:06] the shadow doesn't reach us, but there is a little bit of like from five to six o'clock the sun gets blocked behind it.
[00:07:14] The West sun, and then it comes underneath the rail again, but now it's not, it's not like daunting and straight above our house. And we come outside and look up like with trolls, living under a bridge,
[00:07:29] GB: [00:07:29] you know, Jack, I actually, um, I've, I've used some of your techniques recently.
[00:07:35] Jack Post: [00:07:35] Oh yes, because it's
[00:07:36] GB: [00:07:36] my mom's was my mom's 60th, uh, tomorrow.
[00:07:40] So. Was she happy about daycares when this comes out and it would have already been, so I can say what it is. We wrote her a, um, we didn't write her a song. We did a cover of a song and I was like panning stuff to the left and right. And like doubling up the tracks.
[00:07:57] Jack Post: [00:07:57] Right. You did a cover or you did like [00:08:00] you re rewrote the lyrics of
[00:08:01] GB: [00:08:01] something.
[00:08:02] Yeah. We literally just did a cover. Me and my brother and my sister, my
[00:08:04] Jack Post: [00:08:04] girlfriend that's so wholesome.
[00:08:07] GB: [00:08:07] Yeah, because you know, she's in another state, so we can't be together.
[00:08:12] Jack Post: [00:08:12] What song with it?
[00:08:14] GB: [00:08:14] Ain't no mountain high enough.
[00:08:15] Jack Post: [00:08:15] Oh, I would love to hear it. Can we play
[00:08:18] GB: [00:08:18] that's I mean,
[00:08:22] Jack Post: [00:08:22] have you guys heard it?
[00:08:23] Grace Peris: [00:08:23] No, no,
[00:08:24] Mr. 97: [00:08:24] no, no, no.
[00:08:24] This is the first time I'm hearing about this.
[00:08:26] Jack Post: [00:08:26] Are you a good singer, George? Nah, he's a good singer. No, he's
[00:08:30] GB: [00:08:30] not. Your brother's not bad. He did the lower harmony and then
[00:08:35] Jack Post: [00:08:35] I really, really want to hear this. Are you worried about copyright issues or just about us hearing your song? Um, cause you guys, I know over there, you're also worried about copyright issue.
[00:08:46] When I had Josh and Tommy on my show, they like, before we started recording, after we were recording, while we were recording, they're like, but what are you going to do? The copyright issues? What if they come and Sue you, they didn't send anything like that
[00:09:00] [00:09:00] GB: [00:09:00] because it's a cover. I think you can do covers.
[00:09:02] Jack Post: [00:09:02] Well, let's see. I would love to hear it.
[00:09:04] Mr. 97: [00:09:04] JB, do you have it with you?
[00:09:06] Jack Post: [00:09:06] Yeah, right.
[00:09:09] Mr. 97: [00:09:09] So this, this was recorded. What, on the weekend? And,
[00:09:12] GB: [00:09:12] uh, yeah, it was recorded on the weekend. Um, and just a bit of a disclaimer. We did just use like Mac book, uh, microphones. Ah, okay.
[00:09:24] Jack Post: [00:09:24] What you've got, you literally have all the equipment in front.
[00:09:28] It's probably harder to like turn off the microphone. I use every day. Turn on the Mac microphones quality.
[00:09:34] GB: [00:09:34] No, what happened actually? So my brother, he recorded his end because he's in another state as well. So he did his end, sent it to us. Then we were doing over the top and I was like, Oh, I need, um, I left the bloody Mike at work, like, cause I'm back in the studio and we were recording at home.
[00:09:49] So I came into the office. Uh, on the weekend and got the mic and I got a SD card for, I was like, well, maybe I'll just record recorded. Other zoom went back home SD card, wasn't working. [00:10:00] I was like, Oh, this is classic. This is just,
[00:10:03] Jack Post: [00:10:03] yeah, I was, I was part of an episode once. I think it was only a couple of weeks ago, like one of the daily talk shows episodes, and you had forgotten to bring the bright microphone in and you know, there's all six of you lined up or whatever recording Josh was getting so shitty about it.
[00:10:25] Mr. 97: [00:10:25] Yeah. I
[00:10:25] Jack Post: [00:10:25] feel like the number one thing you can do wrong at your workplace is stuff up the microphone. Plugging into the computer situation. Yeah, definitely.
[00:10:35] GB: [00:10:35] Definitely.
[00:10:36] Jack Post: [00:10:36] Yeah. Josh would have been furious with you.
[00:10:39] GB: [00:10:39] All right. So here we go. So this is a apply a bit of it. This is our mountain high on the cover of iron mountain.
[00:10:45] High enough.
[00:11:10] [00:11:00] there we go. That's enough.
[00:11:13] Jack Post: [00:11:13] Wow.
[00:11:14] GB: [00:11:14] Thank you.
[00:11:15] Jack Post: [00:11:15] That sounded sick. Really good.
[00:11:19] Mr. 97: [00:11:19] I mean, still playing
[00:11:23] Jack Post: [00:11:23] like guitar.
[00:11:25] GB: [00:11:25] That's Jack, my brother,
[00:11:26] Jack Post: [00:11:26] Jack. Great. That was really good, man. Your mom will be stoked with that. I've never made anything that beautiful for my mum.
[00:11:33] GB: [00:11:33] Really? Yeah. I have heard about this,
[00:11:38] Jack Post: [00:11:38] the coupons, like that is a nightmare in my memory. I still think about that a lot. And now every I'll just fill people in.
[00:11:48] Again. I got my mom when I was 15 and I got my first paying job. I went out to get my whole family Christmas presents. I was so excited that I was going to [00:12:00] buy them myself and get them for everybody. And I got my brother a PlayStation game. I got my dad say day of like, Wianno that I knew he loved that.
[00:12:11] And now I've got it for him on Saturday. And I panicked and didn't know what my, to get my mum. And so I'm coming home and I'm like, Oh, well, what shops are like, as I get off the station, what shops are there? And all I could really find was Baker's delight. And I asked the. Girl at Baker's delight. Can I, do you guys do gift vouchers, which they don't not surprisingly.
[00:12:33] And she said, but I can give you a $2 off coupon for however many you want. So I bought $20 worth of $2 and give to them, to my mom. He must've thought like, he's just so. It would've been better to just have got nothing. Yeah.
[00:12:52] GB: [00:12:52] Yeah.
[00:12:52] Jack Post: [00:12:52] It's not good. Terrible. And then she wasn't even able to use them all once she, you had to, you couldn't
[00:13:02] [00:13:00] and it's just like, what does that say to my mom about what I think she does in the family? Like, Oh, mum buys all the time. She'll love this
[00:13:11] Grace Peris: [00:13:11] 15 year old, Brian going this
[00:13:12] Jack Post: [00:13:12] one embarrassing for my past, but I should now be repaying her with it was her 60th birthday this year in August this year. So I really should have done something as grand as what you did, Georgie.
[00:13:26] GB: [00:13:26] I mean, this was literally just a cover. You should be writing. Songs.
[00:13:31] Jack Post: [00:13:31] I know. Yeah. People who've heard my podcast though. They will know. I essentially, every episode I complain about having to write another song and the format that I've got myself stuck into because it takes up my whole weekend. I don't, I never try and take it on during the week.
[00:13:49] No, even though I've got plenty of time. The radio show finishes at 9:00 AM. I'm usually home by 11:00 AM. So I have all afternoon to do it, but I always just let it pass. Let it pass. Let it pass. The podcast comes out [00:14:00] on Monday and Saturday morning, I get in this panic mode of like, Oh, I got to make it.
[00:14:06] Cause I'm trying to, I'm trying to like add drums to it, like a drama who's from a different, um, he's up in Newcastle and like different people playing and contributing to the songs. There's a lot of work that goes into it. But, um, every week I feel like, all right, I'm not going to make it this week. I'm just going to have to go on and tell them that there's no song and every way.
[00:14:27] Cause it's like at the last minute fondly. Like pull the rabbit out of the hat, but it's, it kills me every week. I complained to my wife, like, why did I ever do this podcast? These ungrateful bastards don't know that work. That's going into it. I hate this. I know my weekends back. Oh God.
[00:14:48] GB: [00:14:48] I mean, that's probably a good segue into our first little grab that I want to play.
[00:14:51] Because, um, um, so Seth Goden was on the show the other day. It was really good. And this little bit stood [00:15:00] out to me. Uh, I thought of you for this as well. It's um, it's, he's talking about the difference between confidence and trusting the process.
[00:15:09] Jack Post: [00:15:09] Okay. So trust is different than confidence. Confidence means you're sure it's going to work.
[00:15:16] People are pretending that they're confident actually, a successful athlete trusts their practice, that if they do the work, they said they were going to do on the schedule. They said they were going to do it. That's the best they can do. And then if they lose, at least they know they showed up with their best intent, losing or winning is a side effect of the practice.
[00:15:39] Good ideas hit books. These are side effects. We don't say I did a bad job because we know what the job is. We can say, I didn't get lucky. I need to get better. This is specifically on the Seth episode. Uh, I woke up early to get that montage together, but I was doing that was my [00:16:00] focus beforehand. So I was like editing and putting it all together.
[00:16:03] The thing that I didn't have, which I think every podcaster should do is what is the first question? So
[00:16:15] GB: [00:16:15] talk about like the process of writing the song in a sec, but as far as podcasts interviewing. Is, do you think about that? Or like how much preparation goes into one of your
[00:16:25] Jack Post: [00:16:25] yes. I loved that clip from Josh.
[00:16:28] We was like, when I saw that, I know this is no offense to Josh, but when I saw that actually felt like. Yeah, no, duh like think of the first question, like you're out, you're doing an interview. Like, what else are you going to do? You'll get there. And you're like, I always, like, I can't think of anything more daunting than going into an interview where you don't know what you're going to ask because the very first thing, and I think, I don't think this happened with Josh and Tommy.
[00:16:54] I think they are obviously huge fans of Seth. So they. Made it a really [00:17:00] authentic, great sounding interview. But if you don't have anything planned, that's how you just end up talking about like, Oh, so how's locked down being foil. What have you been doing? And then you talk for 20 minutes, you know, hoping something interesting comes up.
[00:17:14] Yeah, for sure. I always like plan. I write down all my, like a bunch of questions knowing then that you can go. Off script. Like you got you, you start off on a journey and if it goes somewhere else great. But you've got laced, bare bones there. So that if that doesn't work, you feel like you've got an interesting path to take.
[00:17:38] And I've I've thank God I do it like that because it has been interviews that I've done during this series. One was, uh, particularly was with the lead singer of this band called Jimmy eat world, who was a big band in my teenage years in the early two thousands. Um, sorta like an emo punk rock band, they wrote the middle is their most famous song.
[00:17:58] I was interviewing Jim Atkins. [00:18:00] Who's the lead singer of that band. And he just wasn't the conduct guy who was very conversational, naturally wanted to tell a whole lot of stories and. Allowed for all these natural moments to come up where we can start talking about other things. So I did have to rip through that list of questions that I prepared for him because he was either giving short answers or just answers that weren't lending themselves to other kinds of questions, actually, halfway through the interview, I was like, I'm going to get through these.
[00:18:29] Like I thought I wrote more than I would ever need, but I'm actually going to get through all of these.
[00:18:34] GB: [00:18:34] Yeah. Right. Is that, how many do you usually generally have?
[00:18:37] Jack Post: [00:18:37] Uh, I mean, I might write like, I actually, that's a, that's a little bit dishonest. I don't, I don't know. I always write down a question as much as I write down, like an area that I want to cover.
[00:18:52] So I might write down like 10 areas, which is more than you. You probably need, I even interview for about 45 minutes [00:19:00] on this podcast. And that is usually more than enough. So for a lot of them, I'll get to the end. I just did Andy Lee as the most recent episode. And. Get to the end and still have half of the areas I wanted to cover that we didn't even get to because we were able to come up with natural stuff in there.
[00:19:16] GB: [00:19:16] But you can tell, like, it's always so natural, like your, your show reckon you can really pick up where the questions that you had prepared would be, they seem
[00:19:24] Jack Post: [00:19:24] like they're so off the cuff. Oh, thanks man. And that's that I work in that is, um, just. Part of like knowing that you've written them down so that if you, if you hit a point where like nothing's naturally coming to you, you can always just defer to what you've written down.
[00:19:40] It just gives you like this weird confidence that, you know, you've like
[00:19:43] GB: [00:19:43] a safety net, or
[00:19:44] Jack Post: [00:19:44] it is a safety net. And then you find that you don't actually need it or. Um, or stuff that you've written down just comes naturally to you. So I don't end up actually rating a lot of what I've written down, but I know that if I hadn't have done that before the interview, it wouldn't have been [00:20:00] as natural.
[00:20:01] Mr. 97: [00:20:01] Hmm. Well, I mean, you play like different characters on air, right? Like you've, you know, behind the panel at H and a, and then like sidekick on Christian icon or what is it like going to then being the person, asking all the questions and the one doing the interview. As opposed to what you've done like in radio.
[00:20:19] Jack Post: [00:20:19] Yeah. It's been really fun and I didn't really, I didn't realize I would enjoy it so much. I think I started this podcast as an idea to make songs and I thought how, what, what's a good way to create an area where I have to write a different song every week. And it felt like too much of a blank page to go.
[00:20:39] All right. This is just a new podcast where I write a new song every week. W without any input or content to draw from. So that's where I came up with the idea. I was like, well, if I'm just doing an interview every week, you talk about a bunch of different things and surely something in that can inspire as a topic for a song.
[00:20:56] So the interview aspect of the podcast came as a [00:21:00] secondary feature to wanting to have this stimulus, to write songs and I've really enjoyed it. And actually it's probably more become an interview podcast. Then the song podcast. Just by nature of the interview is first takes up 45 minutes. And then the song is three minutes at the very end.
[00:21:18] So that probably a bulk of the response I get about the podcast is about the interviews and not about the music.
[00:21:27] GB: [00:21:27] Is that disappointing or
[00:21:29] Jack Post: [00:21:29] Georgie in a way? Yes, because it's, TV takes about a quarter of the time as it does to make the songs. But the, but that doesn't worry me in the fact that like, while I do get sometimes frustrated and put a lot of pressure on myself for the songs.
[00:21:48] I gotta remember the reason that I was doing that was to teach myself a new skill and to get better at something. And the podcast was a way of keeping myself accountable for that. So it doesn't really worry me that the [00:22:00] songs aren't front and center of the podcast, but, um, I, I think I still get a lot out of it and, and it does give me something, it does give me the podcasts, just that little bit of different point of difference to a lot of podcasts interview based podcasts.
[00:22:16] GB: [00:22:16] Yeah, definitely. I think Haymitch summed it up perfectly. It's like, you're doing that the extra bit, you know, so many interview podcasts out there, but you're one is that, that extra little bit of a,
[00:22:27] Jack Post: [00:22:27] yeah. And I would say that about this podcast as well, because your. Georgia. You obviously think about what you want to talk about.
[00:22:33] You go and source the clips to kick off different areas of conversation, rather than we all just sit down. And there's something to be said for both ways, but rather than it, we would have a different conversation. If we all just sat down and go, all right, time starts now for 45 minutes. Just whatever we want to talk about.
[00:22:50] We'll talk about. Yeah,
[00:22:52] GB: [00:22:52] that's so true with the first question stuff. I was thinking about this with Joe Rogan, Eric, and he's like an expert at the [00:23:00] very first question, like with the Kanye West episode, he just said like, so you're running for president.
[00:23:05] Jack Post: [00:23:05] Yeah. And then it's just like
[00:23:07] GB: [00:23:07] 20 minutes of Kanye talking.
[00:23:08] Jack Post: [00:23:08] Yeah. Yeah. And I think another skill that he has is like, he really does make it sound like. The kind of conversation that you would just, that they would have anyway. Like you can really imagine that as like, you know, for whatever reason they're not on air yet. And they just have to wait 20 minutes while some guy sets up the studio and that's the kind of conversation that would have before they went on.
[00:23:32] What did you think of that? Yeah. Episode that didn't actually
[00:23:35] GB: [00:23:35] finish it.
[00:23:37] Jack Post: [00:23:37] It's a lot. He's a, he's a bit of a rambler Kanye West. I found it and I didn't get through more than 20 minutes of it. I haven't got
[00:23:44] GB: [00:23:44] three about 20.
[00:23:45] Jack Post: [00:23:45] Yeah.
[00:23:46] GB: [00:23:46] And, um, and the Alex Jones one as well. Didn't sit through that either.
[00:23:51] Mr. 97: [00:23:51] How long has it this time?
[00:23:52] I remember last
[00:23:53] GB: [00:23:53] time was three hours. I'm pretty sure
[00:23:54] Mr. 97: [00:23:54] last time it was like five hours. It was ridiculous.
[00:23:57] Jack Post: [00:23:57] Yeah. Yeah. I just, I don't listen to it [00:24:00] too. A lot of the Joe Rogan episodes, but what I love is when there's somebody that you like on there, getting served a three hour episode is, is bliss. Like you really, you need that amount of time to get to areas where you hear people talking about things they've never talked about before, because usually interviews don't go on that long.
[00:24:18] GB: [00:24:18] Totally. So what about like long form versus radio? Are you doing any little interviews on
[00:24:25] Jack Post: [00:24:25] Christian? O'Connell nah, actually Christian O'Connell show. We don't do a lot of interviews. I love actually I was talking to Mason about this earlier. I love the set up that we're doing on that show. Whereas a lot of breakfast radio shows.
[00:24:38] Interview everybody who's offered. And that includes, you know, the, all the block contestants, all the master, chef contestants, um, anyone and everyone who, you know, it's not a really big exclusive to talk to them. They, they have a great chat, but it's not a huge. Um, exclusive and we don't do any of [00:25:00] those.
[00:25:00] And then he's just really picky with the ones he does do. So we did Jerry Seinfeld two weeks ago, and then we did Matthew McConaughey last week and it really makes like the interviews pop out of the show. The only problem is the only sad thing for me is he, he does those one-on-one and. I'm not part of him.
[00:25:18] So I'm just like, I'm just like the listener in that, which I don't mind as well because Christian shows really, it is his show. I'm like a player on it, but, um, you know, it's a similar to what you guys do with the daily talk show, how you pump up from Tom to Tom.
[00:25:38] But, you know, at the end, like when, when they're interviewing Seth, like it was just the boys doing.
[00:25:43] GB: [00:25:43] Oh, definitely. Yeah, no, we will not be trusted on the,
[00:25:47] Jack Post: [00:25:47] to answer that question. No, I've never done interviewing anywhere besides this Jackie road studios podcast,
[00:25:55] GB: [00:25:55] this radio once they're like, I mean the standard, like commercial radio, like quick eight minutes, boom.
[00:26:00] [00:26:00] You know, I have a few questions like is Hamish and Andy, when they're on radio, were they, did they have them questions mapped out or would they just kind of,
[00:26:12] Jack Post: [00:26:12] um, I would say that gives you that is a little bit of a site safety net in itself. Like heimish knows that Andy's done it. He can be a little bit more free flowing and not having done it. And then you do. Like then they still pull off really great interviews. I thought, because one person has got that safety net Hamish is a bit more free flowing, but again, I just, I think there's something about that like six minute commercial radio interview that you just don't get a lot from it.
[00:26:45] Yeah, it was. And I've, I've heard just anecdotally that it's was people's least favorite part of the podcast, not radio show, like when it was a radio show, I mean, uh, They thought that it was just something that you had [00:27:00] to do as part of being on radio to provide people's TV shows and promote people's movies.
[00:27:04] But it wasn't, people's what people loved about the podcast was, Hey, Michelle, Nandy interacting with each other or interacting with the listeners, not necessarily interviewing big guests.
[00:27:15] GB: [00:27:15] Yeah. That, that makes so much sense. I remember that was like there's a few years in there where it was, it was a fair few, like big movie stars and stuff on there all the time, but yeah, you're right.
[00:27:24] Jack Post: [00:27:24] Well, because the bigger they got, the more opportunity they got to interview all those people. And it is a real belief at a radio station. Like why would you pass up interviewing all these great people? I really like that they don't do a lot anymore because I just, I think it is an element of the show, but I don't.
[00:27:43] I think it's the best element of the show.
[00:27:45] GB: [00:27:45] Yeah. I was loving, I messaged Mike the other day because he's on the remembering project at the moment.
[00:27:51] Jack Post: [00:27:51] Yeah. Yeah. So point that Mike is a secretary on the buttons, which is my home space.
[00:28:00] [00:27:59] GB: [00:27:59] What was that? Did they, um, Sidetracked, but how was that was getting not getting picked.
[00:28:06] Jack Post: [00:28:06] Yeah, it won't, it did felt like it not getting picked. No, it was, it was new with it.
[00:28:09] GB: [00:28:09] Did they say, Hey mate,
[00:28:11] Jack Post: [00:28:11] I chatted to Andy about it. And he just, the problem was like with working with gold. Which is, uh, the Australian radio network, which is a different company than SCA, which owns podcast one, which hosts Hamish and Andy general public wouldn't care one bit about that, or know about it, but there's this weird politics between one radio station and another radio station and like, Jumping across.
[00:28:35] And because I work full time for ARN, they don't really like me doing things that for SCA, which is their, you know, their rival, even though I don't think anybody cares that is, but they, I had to fought a little bit to stay on the Hamish and Andy podcasts originally. And it was just one, it wasn't worth the fight to do.
[00:28:57] This other, another podcast. [00:29:00] And, um, and I think it's great. Actually. I think it worked really well with Mike because he wasn't there for any of the stories they're telling him that this is a podcast where they go back and talk about things that they did 10 years ago saying, and Mike wasn't there. So he's bringing a different angle to it and like asking questions that you would ask if you weren't part of it.
[00:29:20] And so I actually think the dynamic is probably better suited to having somebody like that in the role.
[00:29:26] GB: [00:29:26] Yeah, it's so true. Like he's coming in as a listener and a fan and he remembers that moment. But, um, I was gonna say, like, it reminds me of the old board meeting podcasts, which were my favorites. Like,
[00:29:39] Jack Post: [00:29:39] yeah, that's a, jeez, not a lot of people would remember that.
[00:29:42] I don't think that it exists for one, one or two years of the Hamish and Andy show. We had this thing called the board meeting podcast, which was essentially like. What was it? We was just like, it was just like detail and admin that was too dense for the radio show. [00:30:00] But,
[00:30:00] GB: [00:30:00] but it was just not edited. It was just banter.
[00:30:02] Jack Post: [00:30:02] Yeah. It was just banter. Yeah.
[00:30:05] GB: [00:30:05] Um, and so Seth was, uh, you know, Seth is Josh and Tommy's hero.
[00:30:11] Jack Post: [00:30:11] Have you loved the montage you guys did by the way of, um, all the times that Seth has mentioned on the show. That was so good.
[00:30:19] GB: [00:30:19] That's that's what was taking up all of Josh's energy. Couldn't think of a question.
[00:30:25] Jack Post: [00:30:25] Scary to be on the other side of that. Like, it really did sound. The podcast version of being a stalker. When I hear them all back to back, except guiding this set, getting that we'd love set guidance. And you just said, I couldn't help a pitcher, Seth Goden on the other end on his headphones hearing the whole montage.
[00:30:43] Like I gotta get out of here.
[00:30:46] Grace Peris: [00:30:46] It's gone.
[00:30:48] Jack Post: [00:30:48] Buh-bye
[00:30:50] GB: [00:30:50] it was quite interesting hearing Josh say that he was like, you know, kind of nervous for that one. Cause they never seems nervous, I reckon.
[00:30:57] Jack Post: [00:30:57] Yeah. And I, don't why I didn't think he sounded nervous in the [00:31:00] episode.
[00:31:00] GB: [00:31:00] No good notice. But have you had moments in your podcast where you've felt, geez, I really look up to this person, maybe Jim Jim Atkins or,
[00:31:09] Jack Post: [00:31:09] uh, nah, not really.
[00:31:12] Like, I, I kind of get nervous before everyone, like that's kind of good nerves. That reminds me of like playing junior basketball again, where you know that five minutes before you start. And you're like, all right, am I how's this going to go? Um, I get that kind of news before it, but not, not like daunting nerves.
[00:31:32] Like I like interviewing a great, great idol.
[00:31:37] GB: [00:31:37] Yeah.
[00:31:45] Jack Post: [00:31:45] because you want it, but I think you need that link. Yeah. It's, it's, it's that kind of energy I feel that makes sure that you're doing your preparation and that you're you got your head in the game for it. Because as soon as you lose that, then you can, yeah. [00:32:00] You, if you lose that little bit of fear, then you lose, well, then what's keeping you accountable for doing the preparation and doing the work.
[00:32:07] And then you do become that kind of lazy show. That is, is like, I were just chatting
[00:32:15] Mr. 97: [00:32:15] even, even, even being on the podcast like grace, have you, have you noticed like being nervous before coming on? Like, is that, is that a thing? Cause I remember like when I start, I was just like, Shitting myself. I remember when they threw to me
[00:32:29] GB: [00:32:29] and I remember may, so I remember, um, I remember saying to you, if those boys ever make us do a podcast, I'm going to be, that will
[00:32:36] Jack Post: [00:32:36] kill.
[00:32:37] Grace Peris: [00:32:37] Um, I'm outta here.
[00:32:40] Jack Post: [00:32:40] Yeah. That's interesting. So, because you guys have all come from not any type of broadcasting before being part of this and you too, grace, I imagine
[00:32:47] Grace Peris: [00:32:47] it's very nerve wracking. I'm anxious before every hump day. All the time.
[00:32:53] GB: [00:32:53] Really?
[00:32:54] Grace Peris: [00:32:54] Yeah. All the time. I'm just even like throughout hub days, even now, anxious.
[00:33:00] [00:33:00] Jack Post: [00:33:00] Well, you don't seem,
[00:33:02] Mr. 97: [00:33:02] it doesn't come across at all.
[00:33:05] Grace Peris: [00:33:05] I just think, because I'm not used to this world of broadcasting and I'm still learning like, yeah. When, when interviews are happening, like, can I butt in or am I going to buddy in, or am I going to talk over anyone? So I'm always very aware of that. And I think obviously the more you do it, the more comfortable you get with it.
[00:33:23] And then the more. You'll you'll learn little bits here and there, but yeah, I dunno.
[00:33:30] Jack Post: [00:33:30] He wrote that he's a tricky role to play because I applied a similar thing on Hamish and Andy for so many years before I actually did any broadcasts, you know, my own, um, besides like community radio and stuff. It's like, when am I allowed to jump in here or just invited to be.
[00:33:46] To to contribute. Yeah. And then you start thinking you're doing way too much over thinking and you're like, well, maybe I'm not speaking enough. And I speak here. And then you're like, rather than just naturally speak, you start thinking you're like, all right, well, [00:34:00] I've worked from home and, you know, try to jump on and even
[00:34:03] Grace Peris: [00:34:03] just read my mind, literally, I'm like, When can I get this?
[00:34:08] And then the moment passes you guys,
[00:34:11] Jack Post: [00:34:11] guys. Is there anything earlier on that that you're like, Oh, I would've covered it on this. You guys
[00:34:22] Well, I was actually going to sing my rendition
[00:34:26] Grace Peris: [00:34:26] for my mom Christmas
[00:34:29] GB: [00:34:29] presents. What else?
[00:34:31] Grace Peris: [00:34:31] Um, no, no, it's literally our brains. Now.
[00:34:34] Mr. 97: [00:34:34] What about talking to your heroes?
[00:34:37] Grace Peris: [00:34:37] Oh, I don't know if I would, I would go well talking to, I don't even know who my heroes are, to be honest, but I don't know if I'd go well, because I'd get too nervous.
[00:34:43] I just started thinking, I think I would.
[00:34:46] GB: [00:34:46] Um,
[00:34:47] Jack Post: [00:34:47] but I think would you think you would approach it differently if you knew it was like for whatever racing on this hump day, we're going to have Grace's hero and we want you to do the interview. Then you would be able to prepare for it differently rather than just like [00:35:00] sitting and like try and jump in when it's
[00:35:01] Grace Peris: [00:35:01] necessary.
[00:35:02] I think I would. I would probably prepare more and I think, and I think that's what I said to Mason before, because I do kind of just jump in here and he gives me the run sheet, you know, five minutes before the show goes on. I'm kind of like, I don't know what's happening or anything. So
[00:35:16] GB: [00:35:16] that makes such a difference.
[00:35:17] Grace Peris: [00:35:17] It's a little bit like I'm in the dark and it's, it's hard. And yet, yeah, I think if, if my here I heard that was came on, I'd prepare a lot more.
[00:35:26] Jack Post: [00:35:26] You don't sound at all, like the person that you're describing on these episodes? I actually think it feels totally natural. And I would take the pressure off yourself a little bit, because I mean, George has got to obviously do the heavy lifting, lifting, because it's his episode and his side, making sure that you're always getting to the next point.
[00:35:45] Like that kind of is the, the part that. You have to be on your game or else you just go way with it and you never get to the next spot. You never introduced new topics, but for you, like, you should just feel natural in the spot that you occupy, which [00:36:00] is like just contributing when it, I just think
[00:36:03] Grace Peris: [00:36:03] I'm very aware as, as I was saying before, like not budding in and as it is, you know, Georgia boys, hump day replay, not wanting to, to button too much,
[00:36:12] GB: [00:36:12] you know, so.
[00:36:15] Months there in the daily talk show when main mice were on like all the time. And, um, and we're doing two trips a day and stuff, and there was a wa like, it felt very strange having the group of four, even like, even boxes on the screen. And, and, you know, you're not sure whether.
[00:36:33] Jack Post: [00:36:33] Yeah. Yeah. That puts even more pressure on like, Oh, I haven't said anything for ICS
[00:36:39] GB: [00:36:39] podcast.
[00:36:40] Listeners are listening for Josh and Tommy. So then you're like trying to work out how much to do, how much to say. And then people watching on YouTube, like probably looking like, what are these two other people doing?
[00:36:51] Grace Peris: [00:36:51] I'll just read my mind.
[00:36:53] Jack Post: [00:36:53] This is crazy. Well, no interesting. Tommy Christ, you would probably have your own show in the next couple of weeks.
[00:37:00] [00:37:00] Grace Peris: [00:37:00] I've got my podcast
[00:37:01] Mr. 97: [00:37:01] coming. Hey, Greg. You're on Charlotte.
[00:37:06] Jack Post: [00:37:06] How have you found being on other shows? Like I know you're on Tony's show as well, and then that's. A different dynamic again, because it's just the two of you and she sorta monologuing, but then again, not really, she sorta talking to you directly.
[00:37:20] Mr. 97: [00:37:20] Yeah. I mean, it is the thing of having different characters that you play on each show. And so it's like, there is like
[00:37:26] Jack Post: [00:37:26] a,
[00:37:28] Mr. 97: [00:37:28] like a rotting down of like content that I'm going to bring all the things that have happened throughout the week that are going to be relevant to like hump day or relevant to the daily talk show or relevant to Tony.
[00:37:37] And so then, yeah, I mean, it's just. But it feels very natural slipping into each of the different characters or everything that I'm playing. Like, it doesn't feel a lot different, but yeah, it, it is a, you bring a different posture. Every show that you're on
[00:37:54] GB: [00:37:54] tiny one, I reckon I'd imagine would be a little bit tricky just because yeah, like you say, it's, it's a, [00:38:00] it's a one person show, but, but you're there to kind of bounce off.
[00:38:03] So it's like how much. How much are you kind of contributing?
[00:38:07] Jack Post: [00:38:07] Yeah, I would actually say, even though it is Tony show and she's on the front cover and, you know, people, it builds around her, it actually does feel like she's taught you the two of you are talking to each other.
[00:38:20] GB: [00:38:20] Yeah. Yeah.
[00:38:22] Grace Peris: [00:38:22] I thought he needed that person to bounce off as well.
[00:38:25] Mr. 97: [00:38:25] Would be very difficult doing one person,
[00:38:28] Jack Post: [00:38:28] like just doing the bit in between the interviews in my podcast where I'm talking on my own, that was weird to start doing, like, because I've never in my whole time of broadcasting ever sat with nobody. All right. Hey guys. Realize how strange it is until you actually do it for the first time.
[00:38:48] Talking to nobody.
[00:38:49] GB: [00:38:49] Hmm. Yeah. That is weird. So just quickly with trusting the process and everything like that, your episode, you did an episode a few weeks ago, that was a bump in the [00:39:00] road episode, which I loved.
[00:39:02] Jack Post: [00:39:02] And you talk about how,
[00:39:03] GB: [00:39:03] you know, you, you stress until the last minute, then all of a sudden the song comes together somehow.
[00:39:09] Jack Post: [00:39:09] So this was an episode that essentially I did, didn't get the song done in time. So I put up an episode at apologizing that the song isn't writing.
[00:39:18] GB: [00:39:18] But it was so refreshing, like so many people out there would be listening and go, Oh, the thing that I'm working on so hard every week, just like killing me.
[00:39:28] Nice to hear someone that didn't, didn't get it done either, but I still think you, you know, you still did trust the process just didn't happen for you bad, bad.
[00:39:35] Jack Post: [00:39:35] Yeah. I would be interested to see how you feel about this Georgie boy, because you have, I know you've had a similar. Experience where, when you were making the montages for the show every week, which was the original hump day, the videos, um, I've spoken to you since then, and you, you felt the same way, like it became this daunting big thing.
[00:39:54] You felt like you wanted to raise the bar every week, and then you put all this pressure on yourself. You stay [00:40:00] up after midnight on the night before it's ready to be delivered. But then, so you, you hate that you put yourself into that weird situation, but then at the same time, do you look back on that now and go like, well, I'm glad everything that I created during that time is something I created and something I learned from
[00:40:17] GB: [00:40:17] yeah, definitely.
[00:40:18] Like it's because what's the other, like all of a sudden you've made all these things and you're like, Jesus, how did that happen? Yeah. And you, you know, at the time it was really hard, but yeah, you just. Like now you can look back and be like, geez, I've made 12 songs. That's pretty cool.
[00:40:33] Jack Post: [00:40:33] Yeah. I ride that Seesaw every week.
[00:40:38] It's as soon as it's done, I look back and go like, damn, that was good. Like that's May 12th songs in like in the last 24 weeks. It's crazy. That's awesome. And then Saturday we'll cover longer. Like, well, how did I do
[00:40:52] Grace Peris: [00:40:52] one more
[00:40:55] GB: [00:40:55] that every week? Like how do you know when the process hasn't worked?
[00:41:00] [00:41:00] Jack Post: [00:41:00] Well, you just got to, I mean, yeah.
[00:41:02] Yeah. I think I would do a lot differently if I, if I went back to the start of put way less pressure on the songs, because the truth is like when I would do songs on Hamish and Andy, that was, that was just me with an acoustic guitar, playing a song for a minute, not doing a whole three minutes song with all the production elements of a song.
[00:41:24] Part of me wanted to do that, to learn how to do it. And I think it's really cool that I. Um, I made songs that I'm like, man, that sounds like professional song with help. Not on my own, but I still think that's really cool. Um, but it kind of got away from the idea of like, you know, a minute song on an acoustic guitar is something that you can spend an hour writing.
[00:41:46] It takes five minutes to play it and then it's done. Whereas now it is like, All Saturday or Sundays put us to writing it. I feel like now that I made [00:42:00] this deal with myself or listeners of the show that it's going to become an album at the end of the series. And there is high production quality in a lot of songs.
[00:42:09] I don't feel like now I just go back and do a bunch of acoustic, like one take DDS to finish it off.
[00:42:16] GB: [00:42:16] Now, I'm sure you can look back and say how good the songs are and how
[00:42:20] Jack Post: [00:42:20] much we improved. Yeah. It just makes phase two, whatever phase two of the podcast is going to be, which I keep. Promising on the show that there will be a phase two of the podcast.
[00:42:28] I just don't know what that is yet. If it doesn't have the songs yet. So people ask me, they're like, Oh, I'm looking forward to phase two of the podcast because I mentioned it all the time. And I don't know what,
[00:42:42] GB: [00:42:42] speaking of speaking to yourself on podcasts, uh, Josh had an idea for basically a new business.
[00:42:51] Jack Post: [00:42:51] Uh,
[00:42:52] GB: [00:42:52] that would take off that would take off because you don't have to speak to anyone.
[00:42:56] Jack Post: [00:42:56] This would get a barber in the news. I'm [00:43:00] sorry, I'm being deadly serious. It's called the no banter barber. And so it's, you can be guaranteed that there'll be no banter. And he's another name, the glory hall, Baba. It's just, they have a home and they cut through you just go on the one side with your head and that you do, you don't have to know who the barber is.
[00:43:20] Do you know what I've done? I don't know if this is obnoxious. I think it probably is. Nice a few times on my walks. I decided to the other person, I actually kind of people talking. Can you just talk. And I'll listen,
[00:43:32] GB: [00:43:32] is that you're working with them since.
[00:43:34] Jack Post: [00:43:34] Yeah. Yeah. I've done it with a Jack. I did with Brie this morning, actually, Jack ended up being like, okay, well, I'm guessing you'd be talking right now about this.
[00:43:45] And then I'd probably say this sometimes. Do you ever do that? If you ever said. Or you call just to talk now
[00:43:55] him for that walk. I do remember that walk. I think he's done that on more than one [00:44:00] occasion. I, I didn't know that he was getting bored of talking. I thought he was being self-aware that he does a majority of the talking anytime he's in a homicide. And he, he thought I'll give this guy go. I actually felt it kind of patronizing.
[00:44:14] And that he was, he didn't really care to hear what I had to say. He was just like out of fairness and politeness, he was giving me a go.
[00:44:22] GB: [00:44:22] Yeah. He said, he, because he talks all day, he just couldn't be bothered.
[00:44:25] Jack Post: [00:44:25] Yeah. I haven't. I hadn't heard that though, but I totally agree with the no banter, Baba
[00:44:33] Grace Peris: [00:44:33] bantering with your barbers.
[00:44:34] Jack Post: [00:44:34] No, no, no, no,
[00:44:36] Mr. 97: [00:44:36] no. I'm with you guys.
[00:44:38] Jack Post: [00:44:38] Yeah.
[00:44:38] GB: [00:44:38] That's literally the worst part about going to get a hair. Cut.
[00:44:40] Jack Post: [00:44:40] Just ask,
[00:44:41] Mr. 97: [00:44:41] ask me what I want and that's it.
[00:44:43] Jack Post: [00:44:43] Yep. I would go one step. Even further than that and say, the Baba wears headphones and they're listening to music and they're like in their own world. So it doesn't even have that awkward tension of like, we're not talking because they're just doing their own thing.
[00:44:55] They're listening to a podcast or listening to music. Yep. Um, do you guys,
[00:45:00] [00:45:00] GB: [00:45:00] do you ever get your phone out at the barber?
[00:45:02] Jack Post: [00:45:02] Because I don't want to be rude. So I do keep up the conversation even though I don't want to, but it always stays surface level. Of, you know, where are you going from holidays? What did you do last holiday?
[00:45:14] Yeah. Oh yeah. I've been there. Oh, thank God.
[00:45:18] GB: [00:45:18] Oh no,
[00:45:19] Grace Peris: [00:45:19] I do. Well, I remember the last time I got my hair cut, which was like October last year. Um, back in Perth and I was actually going on a date that night. So being the me, the head dress, and we're just like, we were just chatting away that where I was going, what the guy dies, what I'm going to wear.
[00:45:37] It was great. I loved it.
[00:45:39] Mr. 97: [00:45:39] It make your hair real nice.
[00:45:42] Jack Post: [00:45:42] And then
[00:45:43] Grace Peris: [00:45:43] she was like, next time you come back, I'm sure he'll be your boyfriend,
[00:45:47] Jack Post: [00:45:47] but grace is this someone you've known for a long time? Um, the hairdresser.
[00:45:51] GB: [00:45:51] Yeah,
[00:45:51] Grace Peris: [00:45:51] no, no. This was like first meeting. We started chatting. Yeah.
[00:45:55] Mr. 97: [00:45:55] That's a feeling, isn't it?
[00:45:57] Jack Post: [00:45:57] No, I mean, it's great.
[00:45:58] If you can get to that level of [00:46:00] familiarity with them straight away, but I would rather the no banter box.
[00:46:06] Grace Peris: [00:46:06] Like whenever it just talks about that. Like not wanting to go to the cafe cause they don't want to like have the bands with the barista or anything. I like can't relate to that. Cause I love that when you go to a coffee shop and they know like, Oh hi grace, how are you going?
[00:46:18] Or just your regular today.
[00:46:20] GB: [00:46:20] I love that as well. I love it. As soon as I get a coffee order, you're good.
[00:46:24] Mr. 97: [00:46:24] You don't have to talk to them.
[00:46:26] Grace Peris: [00:46:26] Yeah,
[00:46:28] Jack Post: [00:46:28] I'll go. I'll go one step further. This might, if, if that's the case Christ, this might shock you, but I haven't get bored. Talking to my own friends and family at cafes.
[00:46:38] So I get worried that if we're going out to breakfast, that'll go on too long, too long. And I always try and plan things that I have to get to. So that meals don't, it's like, all right guys, sorry, I got to take off, but this has been really nice. Not because I don't like them. I like hanging out with him, but I, I was on end of life.
[00:46:57] You just keep going around.
[00:46:59] Grace Peris: [00:46:59] It depends [00:47:00] who the friends are and you know, the family and stuff. If
[00:47:04] Mr. 97: [00:47:04] I get the fan,
[00:47:05] Grace Peris: [00:47:05] not the closest friends or family then. Yeah. I always plan stuff for afterwards,
[00:47:09] Jack Post: [00:47:09] but otherwise my closest friends and family
[00:47:13] Grace Peris: [00:47:13] I'm done pretty much my threshold in range,
[00:47:16] Jack Post: [00:47:16] Bianca I'll I'll I'll get fidgety.
[00:47:21] Like if we go out to dinner, if we stayed too long,
[00:47:25] GB: [00:47:25] Yeah.
[00:47:26] Jack Post: [00:47:26] I mean, would you tell him, can you edit that out? I'm just going off crisis reaction. That is
[00:47:39] GB: [00:47:39] That's great to do all the talking. Like I just, if I said that to my girlfriend, when we went for a walk like, Oh, by the way, can you do all the talking? I'm not going to talk. Wouldn't be, wouldn't be good.
[00:47:50] Jack Post: [00:47:50] I don't. I like if I've got something else to do, like, I like playing board games with BN, Caribbean doing a puzzle or something.
[00:47:56] So it's like, there's something to do. I don't [00:48:00] know what I like.
[00:48:07] GB: [00:48:07] we have something to do while we're talking
[00:48:11] Grace Peris: [00:48:11] in front of the, have you ever said that to me on a walk?
[00:48:15] Jack Post: [00:48:15] Nah,
[00:48:16] Grace Peris: [00:48:16] I feel like it's we go in moods, like one time I'll be really chatty. And then my son will just be quiet. Let me talk and then vice versa.
[00:48:24] GB: [00:48:24] I can talk more. May
[00:48:28] Grace Peris: [00:48:28] I'm always. Yeah. Even my son's trying to go to sleep.
[00:48:31] I'll just keep
[00:48:31] Jack Post: [00:48:31] talking now that,
[00:48:35] Mr. 97: [00:48:35] Oh my gosh.
[00:48:39] Jack Post: [00:48:39] Tell me if this happens, like this space, this silent, like where you, where you literally use that time to fall asleep and then just from the darkness, it's like, Hey. What are we doing again on Saturday night and I fall asleep so quick. So as soon as the talking stocks, I'm pretty much asleep.
[00:49:00] [00:49:00] Mr. 97: [00:49:00] My favorite thing was that this happened the other day. And so he's great. Grace does talk a lot when we go to sleep and the lights are off. And then the other day we had a light night and we wake up the next morning
[00:49:11] GB: [00:49:11] and
[00:49:12] Mr. 97: [00:49:12] Greg and Greg says to me, Why aren't we going to bed earlier? We just spoke for half an hour before bed
[00:49:21] Grace Peris: [00:49:21] that you spoke half an hour before
[00:49:22] Jack Post: [00:49:22] I was like, Oh yeah, yeah, yeah.
[00:49:24] And it's always like, life's biggest problems have to get solved as well. Like in that hour, right before sleep. It's not just,
[00:49:33] Grace Peris: [00:49:33] Oh, sorry. Like just going through what's in my brain. So even if, sometimes I'm just like, Oh Mason, you guys I'll just keep talking. I need to get it out to someone.
[00:49:45] Mr. 97: [00:49:45] The other thing that I love as well, it's quite loud.
[00:49:47] Like it's, especially when it's in your real life, like Greifswald me lying next to me. It's rotting my ear and she's speaking quiet. Like she's not whispering. It's talking.
[00:50:01] [00:50:00] Jack Post: [00:50:01] I love it.
[00:50:03] GB: [00:50:03] So Chris, just quickly before we finish up, uh, thanks Jack. One will think to play, it was episode 900 this week, which we should talk about
[00:50:14] Jack Post: [00:50:14] and happy birthday to mr. 97. Thank you.
[00:50:18] GB: [00:50:18] It was in the way I said thank you. Happy birthday to mr. May seven. And we were out at the park. We had a great time.
[00:50:27] So. I just wanted to play a couple of highlights from that episode.
[00:50:31] Jack Post: [00:50:31] It's a daily talk show episode 900.
[00:50:37] And it's mr. 97th, 21st birthday
[00:50:44] Mr. 97: [00:50:44] yesterday. Grace took me out. She put a list together of 21 things that were my favorite things to do.
[00:50:50] Jack Post: [00:50:50] I'm just happy that you've been part of the journey. Thank you. We really appreciate it. Not to make it about me. I said that episode [00:51:00] 900 could be mr. Nye. Seven's 21st birthday. That was done. Before we started doing two episodes a day.
[00:51:09] The fact that that I was able to produce
[00:51:15] for people who aren't watching the video, I've got a new shirt, Jesse, Jesse is a bit nervous.
[00:51:22] Mr. 97: [00:51:22] This is real hot salami. Isn't
[00:51:24] Jack Post: [00:51:24] what we were just eating it before. And I said, that's really hot. I think it will be too hot for Mason. So we now
[00:51:37] is Joshua dad. Every interaction there he's talking about, you're either as a proud son or later. Hot is too hot for Mason. He shouldn't have it.
[00:51:49] Mr. 97: [00:51:49] This is a pig. I, George Hooper, who brought over salami, I kind of
[00:51:53] GB: [00:51:53] brought it over a bit before the show we were saying, Oh geez, that's very hot salami. And then Josh thought it'd be a funny prank to get Mason to eat it [00:52:00] on air.
[00:52:01] Jack Post: [00:52:01] Because it's like a Rite of
[00:52:02] GB: [00:52:02] passage, every 21st birthday, you have got to have a hot salami
[00:52:05] Jack Post: [00:52:05] salami. I didn't know. I, like I mentioned a hot challenge, like with a really hot, hot sauce that, you know, you have the salami from America and it's got a skull and crossbones on it. It's possibly not possible to make your eyes water.
[00:52:25] Grace Peris: [00:52:25] Oh,
[00:52:27] Mr. 97: [00:52:27] it was okay. It was okay. Like you could, you could, you could take it without water. Like you wouldn't have water. If you had five of them, you'd probably
[00:52:35] Jack Post: [00:52:35] strife. You guys know Bell's hot chicken on Gertrude street. They've got, um, Yeah, they've got a hot and then seriously hot then seriously fucking hot.
[00:52:47] Is there a of chicken? And I've got one piece of that. And I had like tears coming out, my eyes start coming out, my nose, coming out my mouth. It was disgusting. And I, but I, I, I w [00:53:00] like I pushed on and ate the whole thing, but then I just felt,
[00:53:03] Grace Peris: [00:53:03] Oh my God, it's me. When I have hot at Nando's like sweating for sweating.
[00:53:08] It's crazy.
[00:53:10] GB: [00:53:10] What'd you do for your 21st
[00:53:11] Jack Post: [00:53:11] year? Uh, I was, uh, um, but by the way, I was at the park the other day with you when you guys were, yeah, that's crazy coincidence. And I didn't realize until later on,
[00:53:22] GB: [00:53:22] well, the other thing that Brian Shelton was there as well.
[00:53:26] Jack Post: [00:53:26] That's what Mason told me, sorry that we had this conversation off that for my 21st, it was a standard 21st at a bar in Carlton, still there, the Dan O'Connell hotel.
[00:53:39] Um, I put a thousand dollars behind the bar of my own money that I had. Yeah. Imagine how many, how many shifts that would have been? Oh, no, it's already. So I was already working at Fox then as well. Um, but was still getting paid on the like $25 an hour or [00:54:00] something like that. Um, so I thought that was pretty generous.
[00:54:03] GB: [00:54:03] very generous. That's so good, by the way we recorded screenplay Sunday the other day, like you said, and we, you know how we would try and get highlights to be a sponsor.
[00:54:12] Jack Post: [00:54:12] Yeah.
[00:54:13] GB: [00:54:13] They replied to a, to a snippet.
[00:54:16] Jack Post: [00:54:16] What did they say? Oh, what happened?
[00:54:18] GB: [00:54:18] They just said, yeah, our chairs are very comfy.
[00:54:22] Jack Post: [00:54:22] They, their chairs a premium.
[00:54:24] GB: [00:54:24] Yeah. We were talking about how comfy that chairs. And then we thought maybe that could, it's a nice sponsorship. I sponsor.
[00:54:29] Jack Post: [00:54:29] Are you guys looking forward to cinemas opening again? I guess. Yeah. I miss the movies.
[00:54:35] Mr. 97: [00:54:35] Grace and I were waiting for, um, the IMAX to open in the city so we can go watch Christopher Nolan's.
[00:54:41] You film
[00:54:42] Jack Post: [00:54:42] tenant, you guys wouldn't have even been on a movie date. Hey, you can't do that thing.
[00:54:54] Grace Peris: [00:54:54] it's like, Oh wait. Oh
[00:54:57] Jack Post: [00:54:57] yeah. That's so true.
[00:54:58] GB: [00:54:58] But you guys are gonna do all like the first [00:55:00] date stuff. That's the thing that you did the other day, right? Cute.
[00:55:03] Mr. 97: [00:55:03] Yeah. We, we went out to, uh, we went, went out for dinner for the second time probably ever. Yeah. And,
[00:55:09] GB: [00:55:09] um,
[00:55:10] Mr. 97: [00:55:10] Yeah. Uh, when, when we got, when we were driving back in the car, cause we've never been real, we've never had that first, second and third date sort of thing.
[00:55:18] So it's like, are you kissing at the end of the day? Like, what are you doing?
[00:55:22] Grace Peris: [00:55:22] Jeez, just sit there and go, thanks for the date.
[00:55:26] Mr. 97: [00:55:26] We've never, we never had that. And so we, uh, we ended up reenacting
[00:55:31] Grace Peris: [00:55:31] what would happen.
[00:55:34] Jack Post: [00:55:34] That's great. Well, you guys have got a great few months ahead of us. Is everything opens up bowling?
[00:55:38] Grace Peris: [00:55:38] Yeah, I know. I really want to go bowling. It's a great day. Like
[00:55:44] GB: [00:55:44] no COVID touching stuff.
[00:55:47] Grace Peris: [00:55:47] I just thought to sanitizer.
[00:55:49] Jack Post: [00:55:49] Yeah. I mean, went bowling safe.
[00:55:51] GB: [00:55:51] Yeah, but do you guys find, like, just thinking about things now in real life, it's like, you think, Oh, that'd be gross. Like sharing someone's shoes,
[00:55:57] Jack Post: [00:55:57] totally doing that thing.
[00:55:59] I [00:56:00] think there's means of this. I'm not the only one to recognize it, but like watching movies and TV shows film before COVID where people hug and get really close to each other. And you think, Whoa,
[00:56:09] Grace Peris: [00:56:09] Whoa, Whoa. That will never happen now. Yeah.
[00:56:11] GB: [00:56:11] hanging out without a mask on it's like,
[00:56:13] Grace Peris: [00:56:13] well, this is, this is what I'm thinking.
[00:56:15] Like when, when we go back to Perth and stuff, everyone over there is free and out and everything. Um, it's gonna be so weird. Everyone hugging and yeah. Sharing
[00:56:24] Jack Post: [00:56:24] drinks festivals
[00:56:25] GB: [00:56:25] going on over there.
[00:56:26] Jack Post: [00:56:26] Yeah. Yeah, yeah. We'll have to go back there. So strict Ryan about letting people back in to WWI
[00:56:31] Grace Peris: [00:56:31] hard borders have been.
[00:56:34] I'm stopped. So on the 14th of November, people can get in, can
[00:56:38] Jack Post: [00:56:38] get
[00:56:38] Grace Peris: [00:56:38] in now. So
[00:56:39] Jack Post: [00:56:39] what's a hub border. It makes it sound like there was a physical wall
[00:56:44] Grace Peris: [00:56:44] you couldn't get in, you had to apply to get in. Um, and we applied and we got rejected, but now we don't have to apply again. We can just, we can just declare that we've been in Victoria self isolate for two weeks.
[00:56:56] Jack Post: [00:56:56] Right. When are you going back?
[00:56:58] GB: [00:56:58] I
[00:56:58] Grace Peris: [00:56:58] think it's the 10th of December.
[00:56:59] Mr. 97: [00:56:59] 10th of [00:57:00] December? Yep. Yep.
[00:57:00] Jack Post: [00:57:00] Cool. Cool. So you'll meet, uh, Grace's parents mess. Yeah,
[00:57:05] Mr. 97: [00:57:05] friends and family,
[00:57:06] Jack Post: [00:57:06] the family, or the friends
[00:57:08] GB: [00:57:08] that is so exciting.
[00:57:10] Jack Post: [00:57:10] Every time I come in here, it's like a house, the love life between grades
[00:57:16] GB: [00:57:16] six months. Check in.
[00:57:18] Grace Peris: [00:57:18] We'll talk to you in April next year, Jack
[00:57:21] Jack Post: [00:57:21] one. Yeah. We'll have another montage to return.
[00:57:27] Grace Peris: [00:57:27] Did it go well?
