This is Jodi Boyd here for Episode Four. Welcome, everyone. We've got the executive producer of faith Evan barn. He is a prolific Twitter user. Yeah.
He will say guys by DJ shirks. Yep, it's lay on sugar and
I actually also slid in it's lay on shared with everybody because I saw one of your tweets. Yep. And you said you want job from master chef? Oh, yes.
I really got into Master Chef this year. Just I think maybe the lockdown has just given me nothing else but like something to watch. Yeah. And yet at the end of every episode, when someone gets evicted, I'm not sure if you've watched it but jock just yells at the name quite aggressive. I would love that too.
I love it. I love when I think Gary did it in last season's Well, yeah with Gordon Ramsay. Gordon Ramsay
such a blatant ripoff? Did you? Full disclosure we are recording this on Monday. Yes. finale tonight. Oh yeah, I'm very late tonight. Yeah, my night finale. Yep. Yeah. Yep. What do you think about last night? Um, it's really showing how difficult it is during Corona when you see someone just bawling their eyes out. You can't just hug them or tops. just pat them on the back. Yeah. Really? confronting even the goodbyes as well just like the send off. So yeah, we're leaving. It's like just waving goodbye. It's just you cannot do a sincere bump. There's nothing sincere about a quick bump.
I know that I want to start with a few of your tweets that I love. Okay. And that was actually kind of one of them. So this is one of your tweets. It says, For Christ's sake. I'm missing them hug first the project now this What are you doing to me channel two.
Quite an emotional night that was it. It was like last
last week when carries the beanies for brain cancer was so special was just full of emotional packages. Yeah. And then adding that master chef, Master Chef person getting eliminated Yeah, it was just too much
when you're already like gut punch from being locked out in your small apartment and it just forced feeding you tears, televisions like and I because I'm tired all the time from breakfast. Everything is just heightened emotions. Yeah. Got me good.
My girlfriend's bowling as well. Yeah. Kalyn went home.
Last night Reynold went home, which was huge. Yeah, I do like Reynolds. Yeah, I thought he's gonna win. He's amazing. Yeah. Scott, do you think we talked about who do you think will win? Well, I think I know who wins. I really like not like he's in I can say it now because it's not a spoiler and Well, that's true.
So there's always reports like the bidding odds and they always walk with a pre recorded show. Hmm he Amelio just ruined it for
pretty sure me
ridiculous around saying, like my family, they just like not smelly. Yeah, me Mom, mom's leading it. Nice. I just got Yeah. Then there was an article saying look at the odds the bidding odds. Yeah, I did that for survivor a couple years ago, I looked at the odds and it's annoying because I was following survivors so closely. Yeah. And then it's like, it's annoying this person's $1 10 and the rest of it eight bucks. Man has to know yet it's pre recorded. Yeah. Do you have a bet on that sort of stuff? Yeah, I bet on The Voice last night. I watched an episode this year. Oh, really? I want to win hundred bucks. 90 bucks. You have to put like, I put 10 bucks on with those things. You kind of look at this for contestants. Yeah. And I think that one is a voting process. So it's not like a
Judge chooses it. So you kind of look at and go well, it was guy Sebastian's rather than one actually lost. Hey, wouldn't we like it? Yeah, he's on the show yet. He's got a back and he's tilby Peking duck. So we've got an audience there like Nestor, it was just a strategy of going because he's gonna get a lot of votes. Yeah. 10 marks on that 90 bucks later, I just realised that that one was live so good get Yeah, it wasn't wasn't pre recorded. So yeah. Anyway, the next girl responsibly.
Exactly. This is a good tweet. I love this one. It's in relation to Matt Dan Andrews.
I've cracked the code suit equals bad news. North Face jacket equals not so bad news.
I love that. Yeah. Have you noticed that? He's, it's a weekend thing. People were tweeting me saying it's a weekend thing. But I've seen him pull it out during the week, as well. Like he's got a suit on. He's gonna it's something serious never wears a tie, though. I know that unless it's very serious. Yeah. But I've never
Notice the North Face jacket just a couple of times when it was a better figure of Coronavirus numbers then you know other days Yeah, it's it's casual day.
I wonder how much direction does go into politics is you saw it during the fires like it was always scary my rolled up sleeves is out there with everyone
when they're doing their campaign they're like going into the mines they're wearing like IVs and that sort of thing. I reckon there'd be a lot a lot that goes into it but more more than you'd think. Yeah, there's there's an episode of vape the TV show called vape which is about the vice president Julia Louis Dreyfus in it and the whole episode is focused around what flavoured ice cream should she should have for a photo opportunity the frozen yoghurt store has been sued makes it look too boring as Roman Reigns and make it look like an alcoholic like Yeah, so the literally just going through all these things and they probably do think about you know North faces kind of like in every guy's every everyday sort of outfit looks it makes him look like the common man. Yeah, definitely Patagonia a bit of flex a bit too much.
Have you had any politicians on the show that have had weird requests?
No, what I find we we actually had the Prime Minister on the show on Friday last, all right, last Friday. And I always find it weird when usually like you have an interview on the show, a publicist will call the hotline. Yep, they're ready to go in a couple minutes. Cool. And then they'll connect a line and it will be the celebrity whoever they are. But the Prime Minister, I've always had what's going on the show? It's always him. So like, when you answer the phone, you go, hello, Fox. And then it's like our hearts. It's Scott Morrison here. You're never ready for it like you've ever led to the country to go. Come on. What do you say?
It's a bit of a Yeah. Thanks for joining us, Mabel. Just a couple of minutes just hanging there listening Ariana
showing us love button. Yeah, that always leaves me I always thought just the idea of him pressing some numbers to call. The radio station is a weird thought. But I actually always think about that when it's like I was on the phone.
Just in the last night's like, that's a weird thought. But then it's like Who else would they be talking to? I guess. Yeah, I guess they do just call the other ladies. Yeah, idiot Hi. Hello when mass shifts on and Donald Trump's trying to call you it'd be a real annoying
alright the last one, which is going to lead into our first snippet very nicely. I'm a huge Will Ferrell fan and also a Eurovision fan, but the Eurovision movie just didn't cut it for me. The concept was funny but I felt a lack of jokes and reliance on zany accents for laughs on a positive all the music and it was brilliant just good enough but credible.
So yeah, I've actually watched the movie again since and I changed my tune. I like it more. I do. I think I've seen me by so yeah, yeah, yep. Well, I want to know what you guys think first, actually, okay, well, I'll play the snippet cuz that's a good start show. the Eurovision Song Contest the story of fire saga, which is on Netflix exam Will Ferrell and
Someone else. She's awesome. Got a name? It is so good. I think you need to watch it like, I know you don't like movies that are sort of fun and it's really funny and so will ferrell red rotors. I think you'd like it, George, if you just want something over the weekend to do Netflix, watch it. It's so good. It was one of the worst film shittiest movie. And so worst films I've ever seen. I never set it up to be the best film on Earth. I think you might have
absolutely not. I watched a documentary on the Great Depression and felt happier about everything. After watching that on the weekend and I did watching Eurovision.
I think Josh has really has not got the finger on the pulse.
Oh, I mean, he talks about that he only watches to me visit you. What are those movies? Well, that was one of them a documentary?
Yeah. He was like, I love Will Ferrell and I think like stepbrothers and anchorman and
Like blades of glory like those sort of ones. I've always been like great. I think I went to this one thinking I don't think it was like the same kind of company designs. It was a really sort of like a love letter to Eurovision and I went in expecting it to be taking the piss out of Eurovision which I then since have realised it's kind of like putting up on the pedestal going this is such a great crazy competition.
Yeah, I don't know. I thought it wasn't funny. I don't think it was hilarious, but I think it was entertaining. It's the second time around watching it. Yep. I went in thinking was really real proper comedy. Yeah, did Hannah like it. You'll go for that now. So we so basically, after that show, the boys or Josh and mace organised a watch party. Yep. So I was like, Alright, we're gonna go home. We're gonna watch it at eight o'clock. Jess was involved. And I can't start movies after eight because I fall asleep.
So I'm like I'm gonna watch it seven get get in early. Yep. And yeah, wait, me and my girlfriend Hannah. We we got halfway through
And we paused it and we said, Is it is it funny? Are you lucky?
We end up stuffing. Yeah, it's not that funny. Yeah. Like, I've read it like the music and it's so so good. Like I've read about the people that wrote the songs are like they write for Katy Perry and like some other Eurovision people and like their proper pop songwriters. And the songs are supposed to be funny. They're just ridiculous but also super catchy like they're great songs. Yeah. And they are so similar to the ones in Eurovision. Yeah, they actually a vibe, huh? Yeah, I think we'll and Rachel McAdams should like perform on it that Yeah. That'd be crazy. Amazing. Yeah, but I'd love to have in Graham Norton. I'd love Greg. That was good. Yeah, yeah. I yeah, I think I went in just expecting more. And that was a bad idea. Yeah. What's your vibe when it comes to recommending things? Because I said that.
to recommend a movie it has to be at least 8.5 on the podcast to recommend for everyone to listen on the podcast at least 8.5
What standards IMDb or Rotten Tomatoes score? Yeah, I mean just I mean if you love it if it's if it's an 8.5 on your scale, but I'm so different like my partner he just like him and I tried to sell in the movie he it's just the worst time i just i got just choose whatever you want and I'll probably on my phone the whole time because like I like just have very different he goes by like IMDb Rotten Tomatoes if it's not high scoring not worth it but then like I like a ship movie sometimes Yeah, like I like if I'm in the mood for something you know a bit crap Yeah, I'll watch and I'll be there watching at times or like just a movie that's an action movie that's gonna be stupid, Fast and Furious. Oh yeah, it's a bad example hate them but
but and also I love horror movies and he hates them. So is that they it's hard it's really like I find myself like if I want to watch a new like some new Halloween movie came out like two years ago and I never got never saw it. And it's just come up on Netflix the last couple of weeks and I
been trying to find times during lockdown that I can watch it but my partner is only working two days a week now. So
those two days is working is when I've got to watch Halloween, too because I fall asleep like during the day
of a nap. But yeah, so it's hard to find a movie. Yeah, I will give Tommy the benefit of the doubt though, because he did recommend the frozen daco series behind the scenes on Disney plus, watch that on the weekend. Loved it. Okay, it was great. Yeah, I can recommend that one.
So last week, we tried to do a prank on Josh actually think it was a successful prank. I don't know if you saw this. No, I didn't. Well, it was. I guess the idea came from an episode that you were on episode 304. Yep. Remember?
And this idea for a prank happen. So I'll just play it out for you now, and we can talk about it.
Episode 304 with Leon schagrin. We're in the middle
Have one of our coveted sticker runs shirts would you do a mail job for everyone in my apartment building with your stickers that can be good
oh next fuck off I was totally sorry
the idea was tempting for Josh What do you think about that maybe doing a mile drop with stickers in my apartment thing that until the reality set in it gives me anxiety to think that it's in the building and I mean I'll be like oh that Josh that like these weed in the left. Like that's him and no no, let's just go some other buildings or another building. We'll just go houses houses are a good idea for promotion, but Josh's apartment building is much funnier.
So we created a fly for Hump Day replay.
Headed to Office works
and printed a shitload of copies. Double sided.
the letter says, Hi girl, unless you've been living under a rock you
would appear that I've got a podcast called the daily talk show. The premise is simple, everyday shit with my best buddies Tell me. We've just released a brand new podcast and we'd love for you to listen. up that replay is the behind the scenes podcast of the daily talk show. or as we like to say the show about the show. Listen on your favourite podcast app. Thanks, Josh.
He's gonna hide it. It was then time for the delay break on the flies on bloods. And if you'd like to stick his hand we're gonna have to get out of the driveway.
be so embarrassing.
I have that right now. Thanks for the idea.
Happy that is so creepy.
With my I can't wear my hoodie anymore.
So that was us playing it out to him on the show, right last week. Yes. He was at home over the weekend
from a COVID COVID test.
Anyway, so he is at home.
We actually originally were gonna do your letterbox we thought it'd be fun
to have a check.
But then you actually went on to say that you'll letterboxes behind security, security as well as that anyway, we thought it would be funny if we did. If we did justice.
The one thing so in the video, you can see us putting them into every mailbox you have to find his building. And the way that we we the way that we did it was we put one in Joshua's Yep. And then we faked all the rest. So the way that the videos stitch together looks like we've put all of them in there. And Josh doesn't know this yet. He thinks that everyone in this building Yeah, is aware of the podcast and so Jess actually got a text from
Josh sang still can't get over the letterbox drop to my neighbor's fucking help. we bumped into a neighbour and he was overly nice, so awkward.
So he's been he's always Candy's been stressing. And so we thought we thought we'd give him a call now and just tell him right right.
Josh? Good I you're live on the podcast.
Yeah, good night. Hey, gang.
is Leon is missing. You didn't you didn't tell me you were gonna FaceTime
the audio is actually it would be better but anyway.
How's your day? How's your weekend?
Can I actually tell you what happened?
It was it was actually in regards to this old letterbox letterbox drop bought it You did? Yeah. So we had a fire alarm go off.
And I had basically a panic attack because everyone had to go down to the letterbox and I couldn't bring myself to do it and Bray was yelling at me saying you've got to leave
I literally just meditated on my bed with the sound of the alarm going
so you you worried about going down having to say everyone will be sick yet because I had every single person had a lesson Oh no, I'm pulling this on me. And so I just look like an absolute not.
Well, john, the good news or the bad news.
And what was better for the
well, the bad news is we haven't seen an uptick of downloads since the production
The good news is we actually only put the mail in your letterbox.
Yeah, you could have been better today.
You know what I ended up saying the false alarm By the way, a guy was doing a music video and had a smoke machine.
Hang on, what's this guy's name? Do you know? No, I don't I don't know. But people are pissed off in the Facebook. But you know, we love a good apartment block. Yeah. And yeah, that's the reason why I felt comfortable as well. I actually got to the the brain was 40 minutes ago actually went to the stairwell and everyone was blocked there because the guy's like, not supposed to alarm. I'm so sorry. I'm so sorry. And then it went. As soon as that happened. I turned around and went in because I didn't want to speak to anyone. Yeah, but I the guy hit me up to see if I knew a rooftop that we could use for music video.
could use the world famous rooftop and Fox a fan and I was like No. But then I was gonna go I've got a rooftop and I thought no, that's gonna be annoying I reckon.
Well now I feel better. Like I'm really ready like green I have both ready for it so much I was about to I don't know if Tommy told you I was about to do a Facebook group
that wasn't made like
if you've been living under a rock
can you tell us about the the the text you sent about you running into someone and they'll being really overly nice to you? Yeah, it was just like, and the other thing too is straight after getting the Cova test.
I just got like, real funny about the night like bumping into people and then you're like, Oh, do I
just had the Cobra test or whatever. And so he was being really nice. And I was just obviously trying to keep
and so yeah, I thought that he must've and even Bri was like is definitely like they've read the letter.
So what have you done with all of those letters? Yeah, we've gotten we only printed off about four or five. So
we haven't wasted all the stickers. Sure you worried about that? You run by thought and go into the letterbox? Yeah, it's a
break into everything.
I will say I think one or two envelopes did slip in that we know what apartment
but it was just the daily talk show letterbox letters with with nothing in it. No Okay. But I do feel sorry to pray for me to
pray. He said sorry. I mean you You definitely added an extra level of tension. Yeah, I didn't realise how much it affected me in
I was lying on the bed watching the fibre guide around.
Even optically is not great. You know sitting there as everyone's outside.
Well, you can leave the house in 14 days when you get you.
At any moment I should be getting those results. They did a good job, but it wasn't related to
the whole the whole thing that I specifically said that you can't get beyond is a phone prank. That's true. Because I don't answer the phone that's coming. This is just a test. This is a warm up. Record. Okay. Have a good day.
Thanks, Leon. Thanks.
It's been a bit of talk around the office TJ and JJ, I mean, that was kind of evident in what you know what they're saying that I've been getting a bit too big for my boots. Okay.
I've been called Live status around the office. Well
yeah, a small fish like starting off, you know Episode Four. I know what episode is, um, you up to now it was 795 a little bit behind the 800 800 episode on Friday. That's okay. Yeah, this is Episode Four.
I mean, how do you how would you keep me in check or how do you keep big personalities in check constantly reminding you for the forum's?
Oh, look, there's nothing wrong with getting rid of confidence.
They when they talk, like, I don't know, I feel like you know, you're as I said earlier before we started recording like episode one you sent a pretty slick. Yeah, thank you. So like, you haven't got much to do is just keep those numbers going and keep reminding them that you know, I've been in the chat.
first weekend. What was last time there in the charts? Yeah, yeah, gotcha. Yeah, ages
Went out when we were in the chats have they replayed? They were, I think number 110. And we were 22. Yeah, I've forgotten about what you need to do is I'm happy to back you on this. I think you should still be up in your boots like, yeah, they come to me to come on the show again soon. Maybe we'll be you that yeah, it's me. I might just say, john.
Yeah, for now.
apply another snippet. So this is a bit of office drama. Okay. Which we can talk about. So while George is away, like you're you've made the play for his moustache, just brought a bit of George to our show.
There's something I'm making a play for. He wanted to set up a sound booth under the stairs. hasn't happened. I want to I want to set up my glue gun. A little recording area. I'm basically want to do what George thought he could have done. But he wants to weigh you have taken our desks. Yeah, they're upstairs.
We've given that to the boys. Yeah. And so they have vitamin D. They've got like at 97 so happy he's got like the windows open, like is a new guy. Yeah. And so we're down here now sort of hot desking essentially right busy in our own business
bit of tension you are showing you dominate.
Yeah, definitely. So what's what's what's the deal with office politics? Who gets who gets the great office who How do you know where to sit?
You know what it's really interesting that where, where the radio station is where Fox FM level below us is triple aim. So we've got the balcony we've got the rooftop of worldfamous rooftop and it's definitely a bit better, I think. But my only thing for our radio station is I don't know who designed it the architects or whatever it is, our radius years right down one end of the building. It's quite a long building and the toilets like all the way up the other
And I was like, why would you not put toilets right next to the studio because of all people in the business who have to play a three minute pop song, it's annoying to run out of that toilet and run within three minutes. Whereas salespeople can take their time and wander around and do whatever they need. But like, I've always had that issue with like, it's like, the toilet being so far away. That would be the one thing I think is like if I can get some dominance is some portal is up
and have to walk down the toilets. But even my desk like I've got my entire desk in the office. That's like, right next to the studio now, because there's the amount of times where it's like, there's something in my destiny to grab during the show, or just get something quickly and again, it used to be right down the other end. I've said that can we just have it right up next to the studio is like it makes sense to be near where I work. Yeah. Yes, that's sort of show my dominance there just yet to push for that. Exactly. Yeah. Now that's fair. What about like the live shows we did used to have an office like a team had an office. What happened to that?
They said at one point look, it'd be good for all of us to be out in the open as an open plan office when the shows are there, you know, have fun and communicate. But we'd had an office for a while so we have breakfast saying like we're here early like offices their
salespeople promotions peering. There's a lot like really at four, like a 5010. No, sorry, not in the morning, during the day. But I think for breakfast hours is like once the show finishes at nine, I have some meetings and stuff. And then you really want to get your head down and get work done and then get out once you sit done. But people sort of the start of the work day just wondering about 930 the coffee house Master Chef last night. Let's see this in the weekend. Bob was at night I've been in for hours. I want to do my work. Having an office was the perfect thing for them. But now I've been planned. Yeah, right. Well, no one's really there now. Right. So
So what about so didn't like high tonight and they have like a beak? Yeah. They used to have we used to have we took theirs. Were they
All right. And then I think after a while they said we don't want teams to have offices because we say go writing
but yeah, they were led to well they
didn't you guys didn't Southern Cross austereo like, renamed some of the things like wasn't the studio then wasn't like a meeting room called the studio, the main room called the studio, which to the day I still don't understand why. Because I say I'll meet you in the studio. Now we have two studios. There's a studio that was a boardroom meeting room, and the studio it's a radio studio. I think that's changed now. Hopefully they heard my whining but like, I love those like funny they try to be cool. Yeah, like it for a while. There's rooms named after, like, artists like that. on the radio station. Remember in Sydney when I was I worked at today FM in Sydney, which is the same like foxes in Sydney.
Some of the artists like obviously with names like pretty early on, so I was like, I think we should have a Chris Brown room.
And like a pink there was a pink room. She's still around a bit, but like, there was some rooms I covered the artists and it's like, I don't know if we should have that they're not around anymore. Do we want a fat man scape room?
Today? Like, how do you like how do you know which room it is to have like any art in there? No, they just had just a little tag, little tag. I still can't like we've got the Delta good room, which actually is a good thing.
But now that they've moved back to just like the boardroom, the kitchen boardroom, once called the MCG because the window you can see the MCG from it. Oh, yeah, I lucked out because I was remember where that is. Yeah, I have no idea what the Delta goodrem is.
What about the key tell us the story about how you found the Batman guy?
Yeah, I was driving to work with me at 430 in the morning on morning and I stopped at the lights and I was sitting there and I could see this sort of thing moving in the shadow of some city road in Melbourne.
And then I noticed it was like a guy was a man dressed as Batman. And at 430 in the morning, you really have to double check.
I'm tired. And I sort of drove past slowly and looked at him and he just looked looked like copped eyes at me as I drove past him slowly and he's standing up on a barrier. And it was a proper suit. Just standing still just standing still, that's kind of just in the shadows, like what Batman would actually do. Yeah. And so I I went now I'm gonna go back I did a loop around and then I sort of stopped a little bit further up and like did a quick sort of zoom photo and video just because I you know, believe me if I told them
and then I did another drive past the second hour drive past I was a bit scared because like, if this guy's not well, he just jumped out of the car or Yeah, like, yeah, it was, yeah, it was fine. But then we went to the radio studio and I told Fifi and fed and they did not believe me, obviously at first I showed in the video and
Get the footage and they're like, Ah, that could be anything. I was like, that's obviously Batman. Yeah, so we put a call out to see if anyone knew him and
news.com or one of those sites picked up the photo and thought it was hilarious and posted and said there's a serious Batman around Melbourne. And it just got shared heaps of Times Online. And then I started trying to find who it was because we asked if anyone knew it was known cold. And I started looking and there's apparently a Melbourne Batman that just dressed up as Batman round, and it's not him and I questioned it. He's like, No, no, it's not me. I was
here's the other one. He goes, I don't know. And eventually, someone got in touch with me and said, Oh, that's that's my friends.
Can you I can get you in touch if you want and I called him out of the blue. And he was like, scammer
he goes, Oh, are you Did you have a white card was like that was me. It was like great. So you know, it was definitely
him, and I asked him and it was still really vague. He was just like, apparently like in a friend's place in the city in an apartment. And he has a running joke where he dresses up as Batman, but that doesn't explain why you're at 430 in the morning
but found out who he was, which is just a relief, but still didn't really explain much why he was. What is it whenever you ask him on air, like What was he like? What are you doing?
Are you still like he just I think he gave a good enough answer, but I was like, okay, as long as I know, it was a real thing and you did it but the suit was so dialled in like it looks so legit proper. Yes. Good. I didn't originally think because there is where the radio station is a lot of them.
How do I put it brothels
escort services. There's a famous brothel called Gotham City. Two blocks from there. Like it's sort of weird promotional activity
for 30 in the morning,
Walking from so
funny. I love scavenger hunts that I actually went on a scavenger hunt for cJ hendry's. She's. Yeah, she does these Hyper Realism drawings. Oh, I think yes, I do know the ones. Yeah. And she was doing it a drop of some shirts that she had printed with some odd on them. Yep. She did one in New York like the year before. And then there's Sundays in Melbourne. Yeah. And because I love her stuff. And this would be would have been the closest I'd ever get to owning one because her work. So for like, thousands and thousands of dollars. Yeah. Anyway, she had 50 boxes of these t shirts that she dropped around Melbourne. And I was at home just like on Instagram site, refresh, refresh, refresh, just like widing and I was walking around and then refreshed it and because she's posting on this story where they were. And I was like, at my house. It's like 430 right straight bullshit. That's like 100 miles away. So I sprinted, running and I was like, my heart was gone. I was like, I'm gonna go get it. And then I got
Closer and closer and this guy came out of the bush you know and got it in.
I was like oh, I was so disappointed. I was walking back down rice Street and I refresh the story and it was like rice straight down the other end was associate
sprinted it was other people running from like the other straights like everyone's going to oh my god there it was gone. lost that one again. So devastating. I was like, Oh, that's so annoying. And then I went home and sort of was just a crisis
point you just want to give up I know. I think being so close to something who is not having is almost worse than not even being near it exactly. Like I saw it in real life. And I was at home and like a few hours went past and I work at an ad agency in the city as well. Yep. Wasn't there that day? And I refresh it in this video putting it outside your work. Like you'll be kidding me literally the on the address and the sick prayer on the phone to like people at work I've run downstairs run down says like, Oh, what's this guy?
Really close like, it's already been seven minutes. Oh, and yeah, that one is going on. And yeah, it's just it was so depressed.
In Australia, she lives in New York. She's just she's an Aussie. Yeah, she's an Oh, okay from Brisbane. Cool. But um, yeah, I was like I love it was a fun. I think that's the reason I followed because I heard about that, but I didn't would have been get anywhere near that she had by the end of it she had, I think 10 cars following her really. And she people just she was speeding around. We tried doing that with any merge
a couple of months.
This next snippet, I think we need might need your help as a AP. Okay, to give us some advice on what we could do here, right. Can we get $100 worth of free food? Oh, that's. That's what you guys have to do it because it's not my problem anymore. I've organised too many fat Fridays and we
producing the biggest sponsored I want $800 worth of food in here for Episode 800 Episode 800, which is on Friday on Friday. Yeah. What are we it's quite
a loss as well. Yeah, like, what is it gonna go to waste? Well, you're gonna have enough people to ages Tommy reckons he'll take it home to his family,
which is a couple of days afterwards. So I think it's both a mix of I think alcohol. Yep. Okay. Our budget would be high. Sure. Yeah. So alcohol. Maybe Yeah, some decent meals. Yeah. And then maybe a couple of snacks or something like that. I actually got on to a friend of mine who works for Australian pork. And we get like a big ham. Yeah, or something like that expensive. No.
Then we'll talk like maybe we should do, we could do Christmas in July thing, which could be a great thing and have some Rose porks I'm doing Christmas in July thing on Sunday. I really got Christmas in July. Because I was locked down friends and I've been doing trivia taking really trivia so I'm doing a Christmas themed trivia on Saturday, but everyone has to cook their own Christmas dinner. Oh, great. It's seven o'clock. And then do the trivia have the dinner? And then probably watch Netflix Christmas movie after a grind on? zoom on zoom. A Netflix party? Whatever. Yeah, I haven't done that before. We've licenced done that. Yeah, that's it's pretty good. It's good. It's a good way to look at names a visual component. That's what we ended up finding a little software that you could turn on your video that we just ended like house party. Oh, yeah. Yeah, something like that. So it doesn't come with a video chat function, which is kind of odd. Yeah, it's quite, it's quite strange. I could fall asleep and I wouldn't even know
just keep pressing the button.
So you're looking to get girls with a free food where do we even start? That's a really good question.
oh god um well it's like with Fox fam like you can kind of reach out and go to a refi isn't
doesn't have pool for episode
but even like for us I editor boxes a lot and yeah, I'm
friends of the show Have you done any sponsorship things in the past? Can you done a cup when you say back into that barrel? Maybe yeah I reckon so potentially like we've done we've done a little bit with this gin company called Death gin, I can't yet which I think that would be I think that'd be cool little Christmas July my friend went for a job interview with a gin company recently during lockdown and they said gin has never been doing better because people aren't going out to bars. A lot of having weekend drinks at home and the drink when you were drinking at home. A gene is like a nice ethic. Just sit there and have a nice chin.
So they apparently they're going through the roof inside. I actually heard like, boutique gyms or whatever, you know how there's like, in the last few years? Yep. It's because I think there was a law for gin making where you had to make a certain amount and it was like, so much like you had to make a minimum of like, ah, however, thousands of gallons or whatever, so that's why you only had like, Bombay and that sort of thing. Yep. But then they lessened it, so you can make one however much he wants. Yeah. Okay. And since that happened, I just pretty sure that's right. I think four pillars told me that so. So does your contract. Have a just for like one? brand? Okay, do a few. I think we can do a few. Yeah, I reckon reach out to Eugene Knights. Yes. Good night, going back to ones that have helped you in the past and go. Thanks for supporting us in the past we've made editor episodes. You've been a great supporter of the show. We want to give you a shout out if you got some stock as well help for our Friday only if you've got stuff in stock. Yeah. Jeans a good one, I think where you get a Christmas themed Yeah.
IGA feel like, like independent local. Definitely is not a bad show.
Yeah, I mean, we'll we'll we'll think about it. We got time. I'll chuck it in the jockey head if you
already are in the pork is a great idea. Yeah. I think that's exciting. Especially for Christmas. Yeah, I think that's perfect. We should get some Christmas sweaters, christmas sweaters that will be food or is it just is value? Because if we got sweaters Yeah, that's another 200 bucks. Yeah, exactly. Yeah. Yeah, tonight What else?
Rice veggies, veggies about toodles veggie. fresh veggies.
Yeah, they're pretty cheap.
puddings a Christmas puddings. Oh, yeah.
Right. Oh, yeah. Or mince pies, fruit mince pies where they are. Yeah, I know. cake shop. Could we do like a real good bakery? Yeah.
Yeah, we could
What about you go for a big dog? Why don't you go deliver or borates? Yes, that's a good idea. The other thing is if we are in stage four by which we probably won't. Yeah, right we probably won't be now that things I know by then yeah, sure we are then deliver in that and gone if you get them to deliver it to you and then go Thanks to the delivering a whole Christmas meal. Yes, yeah, definitely. Yeah. Yeah, you have to go through the management and all that sort of stuff to know if it's gonna work.
Those four days.
Well, we can try it. I think that's a great start. Yeah, I think we got a few ideas. what's what's like a big producing thing that you're proud of where you've surprised the talent to the My favourite thing I've ever done on the show was as a shows on cordana mez, which was a drive show for a while there was a Sydney Breakfast Show. At the time, the entourage and the entourage movie came out in like 2015 or 2016 or something. And it was about two days before it came out. We can
Interview with one of the cast members from the movie and when we're reading about the movie they said our it's it's broken the world record for most cameos in any movie because it's just heaps of Hollywood celebrities popping parties. Yeah.
So they cannot have it was and we said let's do a radio show we can get as many cameo celebrities.
So we literally had a three hour block between six and nine. And within a day's notice we locked in we end up getting 93 celebrities on the show so ended up being sometimes it was just like a break was like alright, we've had 25 who's on the phone now. Oh, it's john laws from radio in Sydney. All right, up next. It's no Olly Murs, the singer from the UK. So it was just myself and two other producers literally calling favours on celebrities like ordinary phone book just to go I know you've been on the show before we helped you out Can you please literally not even 20 seconds at a time just to say hi it's me. I'm here and we end up getting you through the whole morning. We got 93 celebrities
And it was such a wild shot cuz it was just like, get that person need to wait for another 30 seconds get this other person up or I've got a number of someone else get them on the phone like it's just it was. It was great. So Shawn Did anyone overstay their
there was? Actually we did cuz sometimes we get pizza like guests fresh I like hey, this person is promoting like, you know hand sanitizer and they're on the block two years ago don't have on the show to promote it and you kind of like, right thank you a lot of those will call in going hey yeah we'll have him on just Tuesday 8:30am pop on the phone and we'll have a chat to them and they start trying to you know waffle on a bit you'll
see later just name check off you go.
But that was Yeah, that was probably one of the biggest, like pulling favours and like getting that sort of like jury chaos in one show. Yeah, it was full on. Yeah. So much fun, though. Yeah, that's great. Yeah. I was like our 24 hour show. That was so much fun. Yeah.
I've done lining up I did 24 hour show once on community radio. Wow. Just you, myself and another friend.
It was at sin, which is the community radio station here in Melbourne. Still right yet, and we essentially did an every hour a guest came in. It was actually a Christmas, Christmas a day before Christmas Eve so went from the day before Christmas Eve into Christmas at midnight. And yeah, it took a lot like you guys have done something. Yeah. It just fucks with your head. Yeah, let's start right. delusional yes to every hour. And like we've got to bring a present for us. So that was just like one sort of break ticked off for them. Like it's just it's such an exhausting thing. Oh, yeah. At that point, like 22 hours, just like I don't care. It's been a while you're listening, but the whole time. Yeah, it's all right. Yeah. It's so weird. Yeah.
But you know,
it's fun. I'll never do it again. You
Well, I mean, one of one of the one of the things for Episode 100 was an 800 minute livestream. Oh, yeah, that was which was what was 13 hours or something like that? Yeah. Okay. That's I when you said it
was 100 minutes. I was like, yeah, now.
I don't your minutes. Yeah now.
Still it is a lot. Yeah, it's good though. I think we could do it. Yeah. That's quality over quantity. You could go 24 hours.
Yeah, Josh booked in heimish. For the 24 hour law show. It was like, hey, Mitch sent a text been like, cool. How does 440 sound I'll be there for the end. But I think it'd be funny to see you guys like Oh, he really want to see you squirm. And so we booked in for 40 am Yep. But now it's like no 4:40pm and why would I get
really good point.
So I think we we would double booked for a bit
bit I think it was between Hamish and Steph Claire Smith or something. Yeah, we had to be like, shuffle people around. Yeah. Hey, Mitch, come on, please. Just
one thing has to change everything. Yeah. Yeah, that's good fun. So you're a DJ. I'll put the air quartet DJ. Yes, sure. Josh is also a DJ. I don't know if you know that. Yeah. Yeah.
But he does love telling people when, when we were full remote, yeah, that was a while they were doing like two shows a day. And every Friday we did Friday night drinks, and key cones. And he was Yeah, he was well, I saw him dancing. Some of his music.
Yeah. So I've just cut together a little kind of story of Josh as dJ
dJ JJ will be spinning tracks. straight off to the show. I know what Leon sugar and DJ shirks. I can see the appeal because there was a bit where I just
stopped a horn play and I was just like oh my god this is you Faria This is not to blame the equipment but I think if I had a better DJ setup I posted yesterday that I was looking at getting a DJ deck. I haven't had the time to really learn the DJ software so I'm sort of just going to be transitioning the songs I'm not doing any looping because I had to sort of connect headphones and it's quite complicated. One of the biggest annoyances the DJs is is people requesting so one person's banger is another person's most hated song you got hammered for the Justin Bieber stuff when I'm getting attacked by 20 people this is the equivalent of every single person at the nightclub has a microphone a green light red light good song. Good song and I'm actually it's become one of my favourites What about me is one that not only do I DJ, but I sort of karaoke along with it. I can either lean into this deejaying thing and try and fix all these ungrateful pieces of shit. I grind
gronk you can feel her but everyone still be having fun. Your new DJ name which I thought I want to run past you got DJ precious.
What's your tagline? No requests, please let someone else be the DJ. If I'm not DJing I what's the point of my being there? I want you to come back strong JJ DJ precious will be replaced. I know I'm getting over the Friday night drinks. I reckon I'm gonna take a break from it.
Yeah, he did a pretty decent stand. He was probably seven, six or seven weeks in a row. DJ brushes came out. Yeah. And he probably did what two to three hour sets that were long sets. They were long sets and most of them he was completely pissed. Yeah.
He was right for a bit. He was loving it. And then the one not he wasn't happy. He got all these requests. And that's sort of through chris chris killer. Yeah. And how he has
handle them. So and let me out for anyone that has missed it. I DJ sugar is an ironic kind of DJ. Because a bar I used to live near a tiny little little bar like a la rock and roll back with a face. And I used to go in there and the owner Fifi, we're talking music because you should spend some tracks sometimes, like don't know how to DJ and I guess that's fine. Just play some some Spotify just, you know, just pick the vibe, pick the atmosphere. And I did that for a little bit. And she said one day up for the poster for social media and stuff, or what's your DJ name? And I thought it'd be hilarious when our DJ shirts with a Zed obviously the last children and that sort of stuck to the point where my friend opened a bar in Fitzroy called lame duck which is like really successful and 6070s 80s not not clubs at a dance floor. And she said Oh, you should do is like again, I don't know. She goes you'll learn you'll learn and there's like proper decks there. And so I was just started teaching myself and it's become this thing where I was doing it.
Getting paid huge crowds like loving it but still not really a good mix that well it's just using effects like fade in and out and like using a lot of props to like distract people's attention machine or a couple cuts of share and
upset did you have to share that? Yeah.
But I mean, was that a pun on shirts? Or is it just oh no because like shares like the yeah like the Ico the 80s Oh, so you know play turn back time and I would hold a couple colours Sure. Yeah. And people go nuts social media tag their friends at the bar like it yeah, it would go well.
Yeah, so but then requests are always like
that kind of bar there's a lot of hands parties. There's a lot of like, people that want those like basic certain basic, you know, they really want to hear Whitney Houston's you know, own dance with somebody who's like, I played that narrow, I'm not gonna play it. I will play in like the spice of one set and request
can just be just really like there's people that really just aggressively go. Play you need to play. When are you gonna apply? It was like, I'll play it when people want to hear Oh, like, when you've got a vibe of like fast, upbeat songs and like dancing or whatever. And someone goes, Oh, can I hear like time after time? It's like, it's a slow ballad. No one's gonna like, you know, like, it's hard to say no, it's always like, then they come back like two songs later be like, mate, that's it time after time where exactly so it is hard. Like, I do take some requests, but
you don't wanna give them the past because sometimes you give them one that come back three songs later go What about this one was like you've had a song. Yeah, fuck off.
What are some great go to so if you were to pick three songs
I used to have in the, in my sets. I would always mix it up and change it around wherever I could. But I always had like three or four songs back to back that I played around midnight. That just was absolute, like non stop killer. Yeah, and it was I haven't played it for so long says you know, locked
But it was
definitely there was your voice was in it and I'd look the start of it which has got the
the clapping sort of Yeah. And I'll keep looping until everyone's clapping along with it and then you drop the
the actual song people join in and a lot of the good thing is pulling down the
music when the chorus is there so everyone else instead going from that into Bohemian Rhapsody, so that's a good thing along one intern, Dolly Parton's nine to five which goes down a treat. Yeah. And then September by Earth Wind fire. That's always like a good chunk of like 20 minutes. That's it. I'm not going to the bar. I'm not going to the toilet. I love that. It sounds so just gonna party. Yeah, just before we finish up. Yep.
I've got a bit of a proposal. Right, which applies snippet and then we can Yeah. Could we do outside broadcast from if you will your roof, Tom? Absolutely. How many people would you reckon we could fit comfortably
Give us a number. I mean, we've got big numbers. How many do you reckon? No. 170? All right, good. Let's bring 15 just to be clear. Okay, so what do you
know if he lands on that Friday? Fridays? We'll use the Teppanyaki. Grill. Okay. That could be fun. I mean, you do have a girlfriend now, which is good. Yeah.
Yeah, sorry. We're pretty
funny. You actually mentioned that the rooftop earlier and you said you didn't want to bring it up. But now we brought it up. I don't I don't remember making that.
Even in that snippet, you did sound a little hesitant.
So you put what are you?
off to COVID. Okay, at 1000. Yep. What depends f 1000. About 200 episodes or 200 days was? Yeah, that's
sometime this summer, good summer. I'm just thinking like
DJ shags DJ precious. DJ precious would be below. He's supporting me.
live event 15 people maybe 16 with Christ 15 Oh Ricky get up at whereabouts at my rooftop. Yeah, Jesus. I mean you said he said 100 joint set? Yeah could you and Josh Tabak what can you do is problematic together well probably with him but his
oh yeah back to what about one What about you headline and Josh now you know I do like the idea of us sharing the decks yeah that would be funny only if it's clear that you know what song I'm playing what's the song he's playing shows? I don't want fishing on it ever appointed him
to say Josh on the decks oh yes
Yeah, I'm up for that. Absolutely. I feel like cuz I usually do 6070s 80s stuff. Yeah. And I know he's very like, you know, he likes red light green light. Just a favour
I'm willing to I'm willing to mix it up and add newer stuff into my sets, right? Sure. Right perfect. We've got it. That's it. I feel like we need more than 15 though. Yeah, go nuts but I can let's What do you mean some maximum because what I've noticed is during during lockdown, I did some like DJ sets like Instagram DJ sets for the line as far as Instagram. You also do one on your balcony. I did. The first one. I did I end up on the news. Yes. It's just like, Oh, these people are finding ways to entertain themselves and yeah.
But actually though, like, notice romantic is the Paris
But what I realised quickly was I did it every couple of weeks and like every fortnight
And doing it to like a full packed bar of like 150 people that sing along and like dance is very different to just doing an Instagram. small apartment by myself.
So I feel like there needs to be more than 15 sure. I can't less than 50 Okay. 49
I think I'm trying to think of the rooftop What the? The booking process is. Yeah. But we can make it work. That'd be sick. Take it. We charge it somehow. Yeah. I reckon we could. Yeah, we could take it. Yeah. Well, you know, if you take it and the cover that will cover food and some drinks, maybe Yeah. What else is out there? Like? There's a Teppanyaki grill. Yeah, right. There's a rooftop cinema. Oh, really? Oh, and there's a table tennis table. So we could make a little video for 1000. Yeah, you're right and play it and play it on the screen. That's great. And then I press AJ sugar. Yes, yeah. Yeah. I've got I can borrow a bubble machine from the lame duck. A cardboard cutout
I can do that. Yeah, perfect. Sure. At 1001 1002 big Brian Shelton's actually locked in as a guest in 1000. Okay, so he'll be there. And he loves john Farnham so you're the one. Well, perfect. He's obsessed with john. Yeah. He had a weird obsession with that radio show years ago that he's obsessed with it if next time you haven't been if you haven't been Yeah, ask about john Farnham. I think he's gonna be coming on the show. Probably in a few weeks. Yeah, that's a good thing. Some sort of john Farnham merge. I can get him a vial of whispering jack or something as a gift to say. Have you watched his his loophole? No, I have. No, it's it's I actually was gonna watch it yesterday. And I didn't get around to it. And then I thought you know what, I'm going to say it for next weekend. And that's how sad by weekends I'm looking forward to watching.
All right, well, thank you. Leon. I think that was a that was great. And everyone listened to 55 and barn in the morning. Yep. And listen to
your podcast and my funny which we didn't even talk about is that it is still up. It's been so long. I love that podcast. He's great. And I haven't done this out yet.
I feel like I've just like did a right why I get up.
Right? Is that Yeah, I love the idea of just putting in a date to do something and then yeah, making so each week working towards it. Yeah, it was the only reason I did it. Like I would have backed out. Absolutely. Yeah.
But uh, yeah, thanks for having me on. Thanks. Thanks. Always for the kind words as well for this show. You know, you're very friendly. Thank you.
