Hi. I'm Ty Rifai Jody boy here. Happy Wednesday, everybody. Happy Wednesday. Happy Hump Day.
Thank you. You too are the intro comes back a bit.
Well, it sort of fades out. Yeah, but
that was the first time we've actually played the intro out with the guests. So how did it feel? It felt right.
At least at the vibe? Yeah, it didn't feel good. They were all a bit flat
before we gonna put this on the table. Yeah, let's do it. We're recording later in the day. The three of us have collectively, you know, not in spite of one another. But I just feel like we've all had a big day. Yeah, individually and we've come together and look today tell them thought we want to do this episode. But can we just all agree that way, Todd? Yeah.
Yeah. I mean, when you're doing breakfast radio, you don't breakfast your breakfast? Yeah, that's right. Join everyone, by the way. Oh yeah. Hey, welcome. Welcome to our show. Today I've got Jess with me. Hello, Jess. And I mean, when you wake up in the morning and you feeling flat, how do you just? You just have to do it? Yeah. Well, you just pretend that you're not.
Yep. It's really simple as I'm already feeling bad about. Yeah. And you sort of you sort of convince yourself that you're not tired. Yeah. And every single morning at breakfast, right? I've never done any other shift. Just go. I don't know how to do music stuff. So I've only done breakfast. Yeah. And every day when the alarm goes off, doesn't matter how big the job was, how fun it was, how much money was getting paid every time the alarm went off. Why am I doing this to my life? I hate this is the worst. By the time you get up and have a shower, you know, then maybe, yeah, but by the time it's six o'clock. I know you've been in the office with the crew. You warmed up. You had a coffee. You're hopefully excited about something you've planned that's coming up on the show. Sometimes that's enough to get you through. Yeah, you're like, Oh, I'm tired and flat. But we planned this great thing yesterday and we're going to roll it out at 730. I'm really looking for To that, sometimes that can get you a spark you know just get you enough to just push on and pretend that you haven't
You know what I am I changed my alarm ringtone. So every every few weeks because that re energises me freshens it up. Yeah, that's a
really great idea. Height because who likes their alarm? Now the sound of bad news? Yeah, Josh, Joshua's ringtone is my alarm. Yeah, that sounds so triggering when it goes off in the office. Have you guys heard of Jocko Willink? Oh, yeah, the big navy seal. Yeah, former Navy SEAL and he's this big, you know, there's culture now, but it's like, I get up at 445 and get my workout in before 530. So anyway, apparently he's got these ring tones where it's his voice. So when you're in bed, wake up, kinda, but he's really like, right now you've got a choice. You're gonna let your hopes and dreams get away from you purely because you want an extra 20 minutes on the pillow. Are you going to get up and achieve what you're destined to You know, and I've never done it. I thought I could work. I
don't know if I'd buy that or if I just hated
weed right here. Get into my dream, I reckon. Yeah, you're right. All I have fallen asleep listening to my podcast.
This podcast put you to sleep. Yeah.
soothing yourself. What does that say about you?
Yeah. Now sometimes I do listen to the daily talk show just to fall asleep. I mean, that's not in a not in a bad way.
I know. You mean I can see.
I don't know about you guys, but falling asleep when it's dead silent. Yeah, almost freaks me out. And I always just have the fan on. And I thought it was because I was like a hot sleeper. But it turns out I just like the harm of the
that is so babies sleep like that. Yeah. Did you know that? Sorry. If you put like a water sounds on or like, I don't know. White Noise white noise. Yeah, they fall asleep. It's because it's the sound of the mom's womb. And although fluid
maybe that's a podcast idea for BIG MEDIA COMPANY. He's just generic. No Ways to fall asleep to show people have already done it.
Yeah, apparently there's such a thing as room hum I learned about that today.
Well How so? Like a fan without a fan so
no sorry. I'm really okay with kind of dynamic microphones and got the other one Josh is gonna kill me.
I've just had this conversation with someone about condenser
condenser condenser microphones and with a condenser microphone that is a slight hum it picks up on the hum of the room. Okay correct me if I'm wrong Josh
But yeah, I don't know which one is which but I know there's one does one and one doesn't
dynamic I think picks up your voice or when there's like a sound wave. So interesting.
Yeah, you're on point today by the way,
thank you I've Yeah,
like the hardware no headphones still getting it done. Yeah, got it quick. So what's your official title here big meaty Comm. That is
a great question, because we assume anything that I suppose but
the leading question but I still curious to know the answer. Interesting. follow up question.
Okay. Um, General Manager and producer.
Okay, that's Yeah, that's a good time. All right title.
Yeah. Now I got big boots to fill. I think
he's Yeah, he's, he I'm here is
the fictional GM that I need to be.
So here's my question to the general manager, which sounds like and correct me if I'm wrong, George, the boss. That sounds like the boss. Yes. Yeah. I feel like just as an outsider, yeah, that hump day replay is getting more traction than the daily talk show. Yeah, that's what I'm hearing. That's what I'm feeling.
Okay. Really? Yeah.
That's what I'm seeing on my on the fades. I'm seeing a lot of George, I'm saying not much of the other guys. And I'm not hating that. In fact, I'm for that. Okay. But my question to the general manager is, what happens when the spin off becomes bigger than the original? Does that create some friction in the office? Is that sort of, you know, is it by design that the little spin off is supposed to be the little speed that that's what they'd say?
Yeah, that's what they would say if it did get bigger.
Yeah. Now, there's no way they'd let you do that. Hey,
how they're gonna handle that.
That was just an hour maybe maybe fortnightly? Yeah,
well, I had a competition. The other day in the office I said, what's gonna win? The Daily talk show is gonna get the millions download or Hump Day replay will get the thousands lose. And I got I got it really how many episodes? I mean, it's not that many.
But you'd be surprised because when you start from zero, and just podcasting in general isn't a pop go viral. You know, you earn every Listen, you get. Thanks. So no, don't don't talk yourself down.
So you're on the show a couple of weeks ago on the daily talk show. Yep. And it's like a big fat check. Yeah, well, I'm actually on your side here. Okay. I'll just play the snippet. Yep. Because then I go further back into the archives and I sort of back you up.
Maybe more than I met her before all of you. I just wanted to point that out.
we used to be she's worked at the gym. Nice to go. We'll mate
next in Perth.
Rice is it what
is this true saved?
Yeah, we back off
to the gym.
That's good. Now what is
that is that is great because she did birth it but that's
next gen Yeah. And she used to listen to hottie Davy Ron. I don't know about that. Now she claimed that you did. It was on a show once we talked about it. What the girl's name again?
Christ Christ. Right?
Yeah. And she deals with you on radio. Yeah. Thank you. Yeah, that's all I care about. Thank you very much.
I'm so glad you because they didn't yet Believe me last week
now and Mason came up flat out said No, she didn't do it. And he was the one who said I thought I might Mason
You're the one who told me about this. Not only did you like find out you told me that we knew each other first. Yeah. And so it was it has he heard this?
I sent it to him. He just said cool or something.
Snapple. I just want to know why didn't come up earlier. Why don't you Why didn't judge orientated to know?
Well, why didn't well it was a rising cost. So they all knew. Yes, everyone forgot. Somehow
everyone forgot. I mean, Lord, let it be known that people don't just sit around going, what's wrong got to do with it? Everyone's got their own lives.
Why didn't grace say something? I thought that's the way to speak. Yeah, I thought gracewood we might. Yeah, I know Ryan, john.
Yeah. Well, again, to be fair, when she comes over to Melbourne hasn't met 97 in person do you think the first thing that they're caring about is whether
they start charging every day Nori that's no excuse Are you think you'd run out of things to talk about? That would have been something that I
like to have a boyfriend?
How many things do you need to talk about before? Oh, rather topics? I guess we're talking about Ryan.
So thank you for backing up and I want to start with that one just to go okay. On each other side. And Mason's not here to back it up. Yeah. Perfect. This is why right combination, but that phone call was actually just before our 24 hour episode. Yep. And you completed a marathon? Yeah. Walking 12 laps of the beauford. Like, yep. How are your feet now?
They're fine now, but I actually didn't think it would be that hard. I just assumed walking like running a marathon. incredibly hot. I have huge admiration for anyone that's not walking. It'll just take ages. But like just walking. Surely you can never get actually tired and sore from walking. But Boy, was I wrong. Like it was horrific. I hated every moment. And I think I don't know if you listened to back to that episode, but I didn't know how cold it was going to be. Until I already said I was going to do it. Yeah. And then Tommy and Josh looked up the temperature live during the show and said, Oh, it's actually going to be six degrees and raining. Yeah. And I
looked out. Yeah, like so my worst nightmare. Yeah, terrible. Yeah, terrible. But so the deal was, if you can play to the marathon, then every time Josh brought up that it was such a great Walker. Yeah, we'd have to step in and say well, actually, Ron is the superior Walker. Yeah, as it happened, just for context, I just want to play this little snippet that I've cut together because people who are new listening to the daily talk show might not think that Josh brings this up a lot, but he Yeah, okay. So this is just a few a few times over the past two years of when Josh has talked about his walking
every time Josh brings up that he's such a great Walker.
That Ryan is actually the most accomplished Walker of the class when it comes to walking. I'm a super fast Walker. I do walk fast. That is
a walk Yes, yes, absolutely. I cannot
walk. You know, I had a challenge a year ago to walk a million steps a month. Remember a while ago, I tried to do a million steps in a month, walk a million steps, million steps, million steps in a month, million million million million step challenge, which is about 33,000 steps in a day, 30 kilometres a day. I needed three days because my calf muscle got so tight when you're a walker, you don't necessarily tracking bank forcing us to do like 40,000 steps 870 5000 steps in two days. That's what I was doing when I was doing my million step challenge million I can test that you are the better Walker but if it's a bit of gear and you want to play into I'm happy to be here for you. I would do that in a fucking Okay, he's in a way good. Can you just go back to the step? I fucking love having my sunglasses on and going for a walk. I've definitely walked a marathon before Jess does a very strange she sort of almost duck like walk. We've got this new app called all trails. This is all trails. This one the red Hill Rail Trail. Dogs on late that have to be on lights. Yeah. All right. Well. Okay, so that equals 20 cake.
Yeah. Oh, by the way, we should just mention that Ryan. JOHN is the superior welcome with the grumps. I have to get that in there. Yeah. No worries. Thank you, sir.
Are you the only guy in this organisation
that was the first time anyone said it? And it was only like two weeks ago,
right. I'm sorry. That's all I wanted. It was worth walking 10 hours and having bleeding nipples, blisters, and my dog BJ wouldn't get off the couch for four days straight. Oh, yeah, cuz he did it with you. Yeah. But he like every dog, you know, runs ahead runs back so I'm I rarely done 200 K's he said he didn't get off the couch for for like literally four or five he get off the cat ate the food that was next to the couch and get back on the couch and just was out for the cat. And it was all worth it. Just to see that. I've got a question. I don't know if it's leading to is that what is that? Yeah. So is the major league baseball bat. Josh being a baseball guy. Yes. Well, this sort of gets into perfect what I want to talk about because Josh, is it fair to say he wanted to be the walking guy? Yep. And then and as the general manager, and cut What are you? What's your title? I don't know. I'm just an editor. I guess. Have you guys noticed that? And I've said this to Josh in person. So I don't want to have this backstabby feel because I'd say to his face a little time, but it doesn't matter what guy he is, but he's got this obsession. He has to be the star. Something guy. Yep. And I don't know why that is.
Well, recently he was the tea guy.
Yep. Do you get out of bed every day and go? Yeah, I'm the whatever guy Oh, do you get out of bed and go on the whatever girl or do you just
project things on to me? They're like, you're the pessimistic girl or you're the spreadsheet. Go.
spreadsheet girl. Yeah, don't be offended by that. I'm currently doing data analysis at Melbourne University. I'm spending a lot of time on Excel. I'm for
that's great. You won't be judged by me. But what's the deal with Josh has an obsession with being something?
Yeah, I actually remember like, early days, it was just audio only days. When my son was new. He asked Mason on the spot. What are they what guy you are right now.
I want to be the guy that has a cable like my iPhone at my desk. I want to be that guy who finishes books. Like I'm a radar. I'm a guy. I'm just that's who I am. That's what I do. I'm that guy. And now I'm that guy who hasn't Mr. Mason, what God do you want to be?
I want to be that guy.
Once who wants to learn anything, become people that, like, I want to learn everything, but I can't be bothered going through the process of learning it. I think you've misunderstood that. Let's give him one. It's like, I want the understanding of learning. Like, I want to learn everything. I want to read it.
So I remember when Josh had a podcast
10 years ago,
yeah, maybe he was the God of the podcast. Yeah. And then everyone got a podcast. So he had to get rid of it. Yeah.
He is he like one of those people that you know, when you first hear a band, and they'll and you're like, Oh, I know this band. And then as soon as they become popular, like you can't listen to him anymore. Yeah.
Because if everyone's doing if everyone started walking, Josh would never he'd get a wheelchair. Yeah, he would refuse to ever again. This is ridiculous. Yeah,
yeah. So the baseball guy This is Josh's new thing that he talked about the other day. And I'll just play this snippet because I think it's very funny.
Something I've been talking about for a while. You're gonna start watching Major League Baseball. Correct?
Who's your team? Phillies?
They've just fucking started? I don't know. And so do you want to? It's a bonding thing? Like, I don't feel like we've got anything in common.
That's fucking funny.
It's true, though. What have we got in common? Well,
well, you're not the guy that I call to go for a beat in the pub. I mean, I didn't call anyone
because he can't go to the fucking beat. He can't go for a beat in the pub.
How do I say it politely? Not
so what's the like you? What can we get into it together? If you
was not forcing like I'm saying things do you want to do you want to go watch? Do you want to watch the baseball and see what happens? It's
boring, but watching the baseball.
Just ask it to you. I feel like just being a female. Yeah. If any guy said to you, do you want to do insert any activity? And let's see what happens.
That feels like they're trying to sleep with you, right?
Yes. Yes. I'm thinking about that in the context of JJ and TJ, that's hilarious. Anyone ever says, oh, would you say what happens? Um, whoa, whoa, whoa, I thought we were just friends.
Yeah, potentially. But you know what? Jj is trying to get me on board with the baseball thing too. And I'm like,
no, it does sound boring.
yes. A little bit more spade to raise in baseball. so popular is it's sort of one that's great for the background while you're chatting with mates having 15 bees in the app. It's like cricket. Yeah. Like if you got really into watching it, it might be boring. But if you kind of take a step back and it's on in the background and you're with your friends, then maybe it's entertaining.
I just can't imagine JJ actually sitting down and watching a game. He'd be too distracted. Yeah, what else can I learn Raisa? Yeah, do for where?
What's the SEO rates like? teams players?
Yeah. I said I get
every player playing today own their domain name.
Can I buy it and sell it back? That is actually a business. He's definitely gonna do that.
Josh. Would you give him a Phillies jersey though?
I could Chow Yeah.
Someone that makes money. You bought a US sport ski, but you played
college volleyball? Yeah. Did you follow the baseball at all when you're in America?
Yes. So I lived in St. Louis. Yep. moved there. When I was 18 out of high school. It's a it's, it's weird for us to have this conversation now because you're looking at a very scrappy 32 year old with a dad board. A little bit 2030 kilos heavier than he should be. It's hard for me to say yeah, back when I was a professional athlete. People look like you But I was I moved to St. Louis and St. Louis is a baseball town. Yeah, and St. Louis is I don't know how much you guys know oriented AFL, but he's like Collingwood it's like really popular like if you love them you love them if you hate him you hate him, but it's not really
Yeah. What my front teeth
tripod a little bit not as much as callingwood. But just that really what's that word flock? you either love them or hate them. There's no in between? sizing? Yeah, really polarising team. So I rock up in August for the start of the school year preseason training and stuff. And it's the battle finals for baseball. And St. Louis is going really well. And I get to the final. And it's one of those stories where the last time they won was 1946. And there's people in the bar where, oh, my grandpa was three years old last time they won the championship, right? So people are getting really emotional and they're crying, just watching the semi finals in the free and I've been in town for 12 days. Like give me a T shirt.
The Cardinals Oh how good I am we win the championship and I say, Wait, wait, I
bandwagon the shit
out of it. And I've never seen a town go off. So everyone who drove drove through his drive thru at McDonald's free cheeseburgers that run in the car. And so we had a youth or a truck as they call them over there. Bob was driving. I think Joe is in the passenger seat and about 15 of us in the tray. You'd never do that in Australia, but in the US, it's not that weird to just get in the back of the seat and drive down the street. Yeah, so we get into the drive thru. Get a mate 17 cheeseburgers, please. And they're like, yep, how about them God knows and just like started throwing cheeseburgers. Every bar free drinks. The whole place just goes absolutely mental. And by this stage, I'd been there three and a half weeks. And I just like didn't pay for beer didn't pay for beer. And I was like they one of the greatest celebrations have ever been a part of and I had no investment or, you know, bilin.
Yeah, I should keep so good. Keep following it, then.
Yeah, maybe he shouldn't leave every season.
I mean, I moved to Any other town I wouldn't have cared. But now I'm la St. Louis Cardinals.
Yeah, yeah. And Cardinals play Philly
or something. Josh's house, we do a live stream, watch the baseball watch view skyrocket.
So good. Okay, so this next snippet is from Episode 802. And it's about Josh wanting to bring in drinking culture to BIG MEDIA COMPANY.
Any rules just that you think that we should sort of bring into BIG MEDIA COMPANY around alcohol consumption?
You guys don't drink anyway. So no, I want to bring in the drinking roles.
So what do you think if we were to start I feel like Friday night drinks just before you sort of started to really get involved that was maybe it was the drinking that sort of got you you into interested? But yeah, we used to do Friday night drinks, where every Friday we would drink. We have sort of moved away from that. But if we were to start to, like so yeah, let's lean in, let it be trunking Ah, Max drinking culture, let's have a drinking culture. What do we need?
We somehow get some deal with an alcohol brand that has our boss stocked at the office. There's definitely gonna be more drinking happening, at least for the first four weeks before we get bored of it.
Where do I start? Yeah. First of all, you can't stop the bar at the office. If you don't have a bar at the office. That's the first thing to put out there. Bars been built in the last few days. There's not a bar here right now. There's no bar
second, and we have a mini fridge.
Really? Yeah, it's really yeah, it is possible. He, you guys know, I've been a big fan and believer in the daily talk show since day one. I was a guest like maybe one of the first FDF so something love the guys. I'm really passionate and I'm excited to see what happens in 10 years. Yeah. However, if I work for an alcohol company, they're not the two guys Which isn't
to say that because
Will you fuck you said on the thing they don't drink? Yeah,
tell me did
Tommy did well they did but what does that did does
I don't want
to drive a car and now I've lost my licence would you would make sense but like it just it's just not the right fit. And like I said there's many great fits. Yeah, there's gonna be a lot of great opportunities. I just don't know if drinking
now fuck this I'm championing for
general managers to go to
a red wine mostly, but I'm a big gal as well. Yeah. I think she's gonna be you and made Yes, it is. It's gonna be going down to the pub when we can go back to the office. And yeah, I'm gonna get Josh on board one day, you're like, I really would love to have a drink with him, like properly one day,
and him being smashed
normally, and that's why I want to do it. Yeah, I've seen TJ he wasn't smashed by any stretch at all. Not at all, but he's still kicked on with your band and you and whoever else. How long since you've known Tommy?
I met Tommy 2017?
Yeah, so yeah, last two or three years. Would you be similar Jess or not even more recent? literally what April
March is here?
Yeah. When God quickly when you get a whiff of old Tommy wolf. Yeah, it sounds fine without struggling. When did you make Tommy and Josh? Ah, I've known Tony and I have known each other for probably five years, but it was a very light start, like, you know, acquaintances. We both had similar jobs and you know, a few texts. Yes, it was a very slow buildup, but I still still early enough to get it. Like I said, a whiff of classic jacket.
And I know that guy's capable of but a drinking culture. I used to work at pitcher partners, you know, in a former life. I was an accountant and finance and whatever
yet horrific. But every Friday, I always say always say to myself, I'll have one beer with the guys after work. And for the year that I work there. I don't reckon I got home before midnight. day Saturday. Oh one time
solid drinking Coke. Yeah. And like working in radio. Everyone's like who you know, it's a bit of a joke and it is like the accounting work is pretty mundane and dry. But the people were great and are like it's not a joke, whatever, like, yeah, great time. great bunch of people and maybe because it is a bit dry by the time Friday gets around, you kind of just need a break out a little bit because I'm like, oh, let's get a beer and you have a few beers and any day
Saturday break out of it.
And then you know, that'd be a whole bunch of you in the go. Let's go out for dinner. One of the gifts is all these restaurants guy okay, let's go to restaurant we'll have a few drinks have a meal. I'll you know go to the spa and you never the whole time. I was like just one more. And then it gets to the next morning and you like did I drive to work yesterday? Where's my car? If I just get a cab home, my leaving my car in the city. And I mean turning up and I think I still live with my mom at my mom's house. midday Saturday. He's still wearing my suit.
Hey, Ryan. Have you been
here? Not too bad? No, I am off to bed.
That's the drinking culture. Yes. Do
you know what our issue will be? Yeah. Mason also doesn't drink Really? Except for gin. Yeah. Hey, I that night that we had drinks here. The one and only time that we've all drank together. He was the highlight of the night. Yeah, he was fucking hilarious. I lost it.
If I put this phrasing I don't know a group of blokes that drink less.
Yeah. What do you drink? What's your go to drink anything? Yeah, but yeah, like Jean, when we're at home doing the zoom calls every Friday not the first time mice got drunk. He had a glass about this being like, six inches or whatever. Yeah. And he was feeling jeannot to about there. He didn't know. Like a third of it. Yes. I mean, like you have like a dream. passing out after two glass surely that's
totally true shots have already do that.
Yeah, I brushed my teeth with gin once it falls festival because you know how you bought it. You know this, you get what looks like a water bottle. And you fill it up with Jim because it's clear because you can't take alcohol and you're like yep just got some bottled water and I've fooled myself so I woke up the next morning Oh a bit rough brush your teeth you know go to Waitrose sweet oh that's that's four pillars
I've done that by accident with a biggie. Oh, have you done that when you've gone to like it?
Oh, that's oh that's neat. Like
That is disgusting. I'm just getting a vibe. What's the doc most drunk? You've been on one time that you just really regret.
Yeah, it was at future Music Festival last year and I was disgusting and I lost my grands vintage Christian Dior sunglasses. It's actually still sore. So really sad when I think about it. And you guys are gonna think I'm bloody disgusting, but I drank
bourbon confident. I know how to say Well, I know.
I work for someone tougher guys, until a few weeks ago. So, yeah, I was touring Australia for something he
To me, like, Don't judge me and I was like, Hey, I'm pro selling coffee.
I'm just talking about
well, being 15 walking through the park. That's what Southern Company Well, it's so funny that you said that your grandpa,
they got a new marketing manager at the end of last year. And they sponsored this music festival this year, which I did the first half of it before the whole thing got shut down. And the marketing manager literally said, people associate Southern Comfort with being 15 or 16 in a park and just getting fucked and bad luck. I'm never drinking with that shit again. Or, you know, like 50 year old moms like having a Randy
That's hilarious because I got it from my mom.
I actually have it with my girlfriend's dad. Like he loves it. That's it. That's okay.
Yeah, well, yeah, my fiance Bridget her dad loves Southern Comfort and that was one of the first things that we because you know, when it's a In law, you kind of need to find a common ground. And he was like, Oh, do you want something comfort? And I was like, Yeah, and I became a thing. Yeah. So he's he lives in New Zealand. So every time I go over there, I get a bottle in customs on the way in when he comes, it's like a little thing. And anyway, so Southern Comfort sponsors this music festival. And they have a little side stage. And I was hosting the side stage. So you like interviewing people giving away free cocktails interviewing the bands when they come on and off, and we were touring Australia and New Zealand. And then COVID hit. I'll shout it because it was like the best job and their big thing now is and I recommend you try it before you judge it is what did we call it? It was the Newson nudie run, I believe is the name of this cartel. Little bit of Southern Comfort, soda bitters and lime. And it's delicious. So the Southern Comfort usually sweet. Yeah, the bitters and the soda kind of levels off? That's actually delicious.
That sounds good. Does it have a tongue twister?
The Noosa nudie run? Yeah. Well, can I give you some Industry Insight? Yeah, we named it after whatever town we were in. So the next week the same drink was called the You know, the manly slingshot. And then this week, go coast so it was the coolant cooler, or something like that it was the same drink exactly the same. Well, they had three different options, but they all had different names everywhere. But their whole thing was like when they want to be in that like, Canadian Club category. That makes sense. A bit more cool. And a bit less. Let's get fucked up into
the marketing for Canadian Club has been so good. Like, they've completely turned it from yet. I don't want to drink beer anymore. I just want to drink this because
I mean, we all work in media. You're probably the most experienced in media. So you've done a lot of agency stuff. Is that right? Potentially? Yeah. Someone's been on LinkedIn. I sorry, what are we talking about? I totally forgot Canadian Club marketing, marketing. Sometimes the best marketing it's like the simplest line when Canadian Club come out and go, Oh, when you stick a beer, just try this.
Oh, I'm not a huge be like I've drank a lot of my time, but I'm not a huge big guy. Yeah. So I am the First and we'll have two beers and go with them on some sway and it's the first thing you think of now awesome. I mean getting
no pay no say. So after all that, are we gonna? Are we gonna have a drinking culture or not? Tommy dropped this bombshell The day after I was away today. Am I real good, real good. From about
Saturday onwards, was very sick. I was vomiting because I drank too much
really hot. So we were doing a, we did a zoom just between the BIG MEDIA COMPANY team, I had gin. Were you taking
tequila at 1.1? Which is why I've come to the conclusion that I'm off to drink again.
What he did, also was we called Boris Paul. Yeah. Did you say that? I did say that.
It was the day after
a bit of both maybe.
Yeah, so we did our 800th episode. This was in July. It was Christmas themed We got a 3.5 kilo pork each and some sausages and some bacon delivered to our houses. Awesome. And so we cooked that up and
yeah, he had he had a lot of it. He had drinks and crackling and I just feel like that's not a good mix. I feel like that's probably why he felt the way he did.
I mean, not a good result but in terms of the moment you consume it, I'd say probably the best combination.
Potentially. Yeah, I drink
Yeah, you saw the hot right? Yeah. Sorry. dehydrated like I'm too thirsty to drink water.
When you wake off in the middle of the night, oh my god, like home mouth is dry.
Make your recommendation. Yeah, I did on the weekend. We bought a slow roaster. Oh, so when you say we got three and a half kilos of lamb, we'll pop it up. Put it in the morning. Sit there for 10 hours. Don't worry about it. Sorry. No crackling uh, don't we didn't do crackling and I don't think you have to blast. Yeah, at the start, but you could take the crackling off. Do that. lighter. Yeah. And then have the actual you know? Yeah, the roasty bit the meaty bit. Sit there all day. Oh, unreal.
Yeah. Yeah, I don't know I'm a bit off pork at the moment while
we had because we cooked half of it on that night and then we had the other other half on Sunday night which was pushing it Yeah, it was pretty close to being off. I bought up off really well just because it was like out of its packet and it was in the fridge for like three days.
That's hilarious. And I just gave my mom the other half that I didn't cook and she ate it on Monday.
Oh really? What animal is lamb is that sheep? lamb is lamb lamb
lamb lamb lamb is lamb once at a chart or is lamb is baby. lambs baby shake
Yeah. Is it Yeah, that's right. Yeah, it must be
what lambs not its own animal.
look this up what animal is lamb you play me shape.
Thank you. That means baby. Play. Grab for me. 30 seconds again. So
I was at a charity night and I put on a beard and bought a whole shape once from a butcher. And I didn't really know what that meant, cuz I thought oh yeah, it'll be a big leg and they're like, no, it's the whole shape. And we named it Adam Lambert and and I'm planning on eating something dark. Give it a name. Yeah. But we were eating that thing. Honestly a month. There's a lot of meeting already coops need to have to be No, no, we are you froze it. Yeah, yeah. So we ate some the first weekend roast some up, and then put the leftovers in the fridge and then put the rest in the freezer and then every couple days or bring out another bit and we had it for ages.
Like you could have had a few a few different meals are like Rachael lamb, right? We all have different cuts and stuff. Yeah,
it's awesome. I would have it set you up. But then after a few days, the same meal you lock.
Yeah, this is gross. She was cute mates is a weird one. Like when I was in Berlin a few years ago. I was with my friend and he was with his Spanish friend and His Spanish friend got sent over like, a leg of ham in the mail from his dad. And they were just carving at it for like, weeks at a time just sitting there on the bench. Salted like
I said, but I was like, This feels so weird.
I didn't like parse it.
Yeah, just like posting later.
Just like posted it. That's so strange anyway. So this next snippet is from Episode 801. And it's from our good mate scooter. Derek.
You said you were going to buy a $5 item at a sound shop and you walked away with $2,000 worth of key to dice
alright to be clear. It wasn't my money and it's not here.
Most mostly sounds like it right so so I did go into get a cable. And yet Yeah, got a lost my mind to beat it to
the dangerous the percentage because you take you go, alright, I've got to go and get two days worth of gear for a client, that's fine. But what you do is you get 1500 bucks worth of gear for the client, which is fair enough. And then you go well, that's only a pittance to go and grab this extra two $300 thing
what's the craziest thing you've spent client money on?
Oh far out. I've done some real dumb shit with client money.
I bought a caravan in camera and it was real dank like you couldn't even go in it smelled so bad. Yeah, and but we just wanted to paint on the side of it. So I was about five grand. And we will client did we make pay for it? Oh, the people gave me that car.
Yeah, it's also thanks to the good people. Volkswagen Belconnen camera. Oh, really,
that you lived in Belconnen. I leave that so we're the did you live in Canva? Canva. Two years. Yeah, yeah, I was in Canva. Really? Yeah, I grew up in camera. Oh, how's that? It was good. I liked it. Good nights there and what and you lived in Belconnen? No I lived in Lyons
yeah middle said yeah
leave we bought a house in Casey so right up north. Really yeah cuz Bridget is one make as we mentioned before and she worked at murrumbateman yeah so that's like ya know so Casey was kind of you know halfway I guess but actually the the biggest client money spent I can't believe I forgot about this so celebrations the bottle oh yeah she's a lot of brucia is episode celebrations the bottle Oh said are you know, we just want to get around some positive stuff and really make use of the word celebrations. Yeah. So anything that's like a celebration, we'd love to get on board. So Xavier and I Xavier's AFL player. We both care very well. I don't care at all for the Royals and Megan Markel and Harry. But we said if you fly us over to London, we will report on the royal wedding. When Harry and Megan get married, and you know, is that not the greatest celebration of the year? And I guess when you look at popular culture you go, Ah, what a moment. Yeah. And they went for it. We went to London, they paid for the flights, the accommodation, they paid us money to say thanks to celebrations at the end of it. So we got this trip to London, had a mad time did no work at all. I actually got tickets to the FA Cup Final, which happened to be on the same day as the wedding. So Xavier went out to the Windsor Castle, and I just didn't go. So I just stayed in London. So I was like, yep, I'm here from the London studio. Let's cross out to Xavier. What's going on? Yeah, they've come in a horse and carriage back to you. Cool. Here's do labour play a song and then I left and went to the football. Oh my god. Yeah. And so thank you celebrations. Did they find out that you went to the football? Yeah, I mean, who knows? I was the FA Cup. Finally. Are you thinking I'm not going to take a selfie that
way? What did I say? I have trust issues with you right now.
Are we still like confident? I guess? Yeah, my baby was out there that the it wasn't the exact same so I just I wouldn't say I didn't cover it. I just did enough. Yeah, you know, right just just cross that T dot that I got to the football and the way I got the ticket. It's like, it's like the equivalent of the AFL Grand Final. Yeah, the day before. We met Rita Ora, and she says, Come to the show tonight. Here's some tickets. Obviously, we don't want to go to that. So I really well, she's lovely. But luck. Of course, you don't want to go to that show. You're in London for three days, you're gonna waste one radiora. And so I would say so I tried the tickets for the FA Cup realised because I need these guys to work. He's the working pitch partners down the road. He's in London. And he was like, Hey, man, I've got some tickets to radiora you know, let's have a be given the tickets. Oh, yes. Wait, I've got some FA Cup tickets. You want to go? I'm like yeah, it was great. Thanks to the good folks celebrations.
That sorry, is that righteous?
Okay. Celebrities always giving out tickets when they come into the radio station. Like is that part of the deal?
Is This was actually in Raiders home studio in London. So we're at her sort of home base, which is cool because it's just in generals and interview when you go into their environment, they're a bit more relaxed, a bit more at home. And, you know, when you want to ask about someone's life or what they're doing for them to actually, oh, you know, so we sit over here and this is where we write the songs. And as you can see on the wall, were working for album cover design. So you really, yeah, it's really great to actually go into their world and you get to know them a bit more and I don't know, like, read or write as much as I'd hoped for she's like, super lovely. And when you're in someone's space, and you spend you know, probably there for an hour, it was almost like you're gonna come to the show. Now we've got some backs lucky though must be rude not to by the time we get to that stage, but when they come into your radio studio, they're probably coming into the fox or then we gotta leave to get to Nova and then we got to make it to kids by 10 o'clock they just in they do their five they go you bet like even though you interview them, you barely meet them. That was yeah completely different. That is bizarre
yeah I also find it interesting that they allow you guys into
the home environment was the homes of studio yeah she didn't live there although she was like symbol they had a drinking culture It was like yeah so we've got a badass because you know it's a studio it's cool you know you got muses hanging out whatever so that was really nice and it actually looks cool because now even radio you know the interview is gonna be filmed so the fact that you've got stuff in the background just looks a bit different it's a bit bare bones but I think it's coming becoming a bit more pre COVID a bit more common and I guess from them is they don't have to travel to Yeah, cool. We got base a common at 10 got Ron commented 11 got the you know, these guys are like, yeah, it might be easy for them. Yeah. Have you had any celebrities that have just surprise you with how nice they are like in the radio station or I was actually having this conversation with someone earlier today is that in my experience, and just from, you know, it could just be the weeds sample of experiences I've had but the ones at the top I pretty lovely. Yeah, it's the it's in the middle. I will fighting to get their way up to the top. But the people at the top lock the reason they're at the top is because they really good at their craft very rarely have they stood over someone or they're a decal or whatever they just really so like Ed Sheeran, as you could imagine, so cruzi and laid back and for commercial radio, I'd always to cruzi like you're in the finger. Hey, man. Yeah, you know, give us something. Yes. Like, oh, you know, what's up guys, you know, I'm happy to do whatever. And you know, he was great. Like I said, radiora Super lovely. Do a layperson came into the studio last year. And that was one where I was like, I just had, there's so many red flags because people can ask about this. Don't avoid that. If you're gonna take a photo has to be this way. We've got our own photographer, she would take the shot back. So it was one of those ones where as big as it is, I kind of looked at that and I thought actually think I said, don't worry about it. Wait a second, she wants to come on the show, La Jolla answer. And not that we would like to have to get it. But I was like, you don't come in with demands. Yeah. Right. Like, imagine if I came in here being like, Well, I'm not coming on this podcast unless you do this, this this. But whatever, man, it's not worth the hassle. Yeah, so I actually said, fuck her off. But one of the producers were like now like, you know, she's with Sony, and we were trying to be friends. And so I was like, fine, I'll do it.
So her people
backwards. Yeah, herself. She was a sweetheart. Lovely, really not so interesting. And we, the two of us, like just myself into a we were probably in the room, just the two of us spent 15 minutes doing some extra bits and pieces, recordings and stuff. And like, black said, really nice, like, genuinely lovely. And sometimes you can tell a bit of how they just, you know, they're being nice because they kind of have to do when they don't care. But you know, after Yeah, you know, a few minutes. You can fake it after a bit. You kind of go Oh, no, this is they're just being themselves. Yeah. Yeah. So like I said, the beginning usually pretty, pretty cool.
That's a fascinating Yeah. I really want to be on say, Oh, yeah, he is my fly. plane, obviously.
Yeah. How many times have you watched homecoming on Netflix
so many times? Oh, that's it. You know, I put it on when I'm cleaning every time Really? Yeah, because it's good background noise. You can look off at me that one day. I
Yeah. Do dads. Know. I'm a shocking dancer. Really? I mean, yeah, no, I don't dance. What about after a few?
Ryan? Yeah, probably fit on my dance floor.
That's okay. Coffee. I
just want to close the loop on something that you said you would do? Yep. Episode 541.
What do you think if we charge $1,000 a week to advertise seven days. So
I was gonna buy now. You guys said no. That was back in the day when we had cash now.
Yeah, no, we'll take your cash definitely
How much? It is 1000 bucks.
Okay, I'll do it. Because what I said to you, I was like, I'll do this thing. I said, Yes, this is our first Yeah, let's let's make the sale right now. Okay, this is what's on offer, I'm gonna sell five cups of coffee for $200 each. If you want to make some noise for your business, you want to make sort of like a fun viral ish video that kind of shows off your product or videos. Let's sit down have a $200 coffee, I'll pay for the coffee that's included in the $200. And I'll also bring a page of different ideas and you might go, don't like that don't like that do like those two, and that one, maybe tweak that one. And then if you decide to make them, you get your $200 back, and it's just regular production costs. And if you don't just you can just take the ideas and shake my hand and say,
What do you think about all this? That's great. I love it.
Is that a good idea? It's a great idea. Have you done it? Well, the theory is that I pay $1,000 in ads and I'll get the thousand dollars back from the coffee's yeah and I do Like consulting work. So sometimes it's a big two month project. Other times, I'll literally just go and have a meeting and get paid for a couple hours to kind of talk about their content strategy and how they can make it pop or sing a little bit or whatever. But here's the thing, and you guys would know this from working within BIG MEDIA COMPANY. And this is maybe something you as the general manager need to address. Yeah. He's that the guys and because, you know, digital media poker, it's a new world, right? We're all trying to figure out how it works. Yeah. And in this building, that probably doesn't always make it to air. But there's always a lot of what if we structure the business like this? What if the business model is a bit like that? And by the time that episode finished, I was like, Oh, I think we're moving away from an ad model and moving to a production model, which Hey, if that's what you want to do in the future, cool, but as a GM Yeah, if someone offers you money, you find a way to take it. Like, as I said, Hump Day replay. I'm hearing that it's the bigger podcast. Yeah. What kind of rights are more like what kind of return will I get on a migration As many follow to purchase ads,
I'm sorry. What about? So for them? It was $1,000 for the week. Yep. I'm just thinking this through as I go,
that's wrong. Don't interrupt me. $1,000 for a month, let me add this when I say what do I get in return? Yep. Like step one is obviously the ads. But like, let's go to the next step. Like who's gonna hear it? Like, where those ads gonna lead to? Yeah, that's what advertisers want to hear that, Oh, cool. This many people listening. I only care about how many people are gonna listen and call and buy the thing. Yeah. So am I still? Do you like the coffee idea? Or should I come up with a better pitch for my ad if I buy with, I actually love the coffee idea. And like I said, it's a bit of a gimmick almost. But like I said, I'm very upfront. Usually what happens is we mate, we go through the ideas and they go those two, or you know, like a little bit of that one and a bit of that one. I'm like, yeah, we could, you know, make something like that. And then the coffee is free, but then you know, they'll pay however much it is for the video. So that's a bit of a almost like an intro thing for me. And if they're not interested, then they pay So don't feel like I've completely wasted my time yesterday. I don't know if you guys have experienced this in the being a creative. So many people go, oh, god half an hour to pick your brain. And as luck consultants probably a big fancy word than I am. But when they say picky, Brian's like, yeah, that's actually my job though. Yeah. Like, you wouldn't just go, Oh, hey, surgeon can shop around and take my appendix out. If you want me to sit down and consult for an hour, yeah, but that's my job. Yeah. So you can buy for that title. I always say if we move on, but if we don't know how to feelings, pet the ideas by just doing business with it. It's my invoice.
George, I have a question for you. Because as your general manager as well,
yeah. I want to make sure that the podcast is successful, obviously. Sorry, I'm gonna put it are you gonna imply that advertising may is gonna drain the success of his podcast?
No, no, I just want to make sure that we're creating engaging content. It's converting people as you suggested. So let's put it back on Ryan. Okay. What can you do for George that's going to make a difference. To what you've suggested for the boys. What fun content advertising Could you bring to the show in the form of sponsorship or excuse me, are you picking
I am Are you asking for a coffee because I will buy computers right here. I'll fire the invoice off.
I would love to do some videos. What sort of video videos to promote humped over a pile is just Hump Day replay themed Hump Day replay themed I think like I loved making the videos before the podcast
Do you know any videos anymore?
I just haven't had that's why it's taken over rk right? But I want to somehow bring him back. Is it
is it more time consuming to make a two minute video than it is an hour podcast? Yes. So maybe we don't understand I edited it. Well actually this is pretty time consuming when you think about the pre production especially this one because we may have stuffed up the we've had a couple of Falstaff we got it But he will have that because being a bit of the I don't know if it's an introvert thing, but for me on it's like go away and think and write stuff down and come back later. Yeah, so I'm not I can spit some idea but I then I drive home and be like, Oh,
I use it offline then instead of me paying you $1,000 that maybe if I give you $1,000 worth of value in something we can do together that you'll pay it back.
If you're if you're coming on George's platform Yeah, with the thousands of downloads I had. Exactly. invoice me,
you need to come to the table with some ideas.
Okay, I'll bring some ideas. How about I get a loan monster come on and smoke a joint. Apparently that does. Good on podcasts.
Yeah, you heard this. That was on.
I haven't Joe Rogan. Probably the most listened to episode ever
great episode. Yeah. Hey is great a llama. I love him. He's such a weirdo.
Imagine being in his mind. Oh,
yeah, let's revisit how many replays
you can come back
in four or five weeks back and forth five weeks, and we'll have some
lunch, whatever we've done in the meantime, right on the app. Perfect. I hope I've haven't set myself up for value
out of this. Thanks, guys. It was a big week of the daily talk show 800 apps. Also congratulations to Jess fee has done too much Telly. And Congrats. I did listen.
Thank you, john. How did you feel about being the sort of anchor host? Interviewee?
Yeah, um, that you mean the lowest status?
low status? Yeah. I would argue just as easy for someone like Sally that's got a load of great stories. It's so important to have someone to how did you get into that situation? Yeah. How did you feel when you got that lock? It was without someone like that to push them along. Don't underestimate the value of that person. Thank you.
Yeah, very much. Second app dropped. Yesterday, was with Kieran well done. General Manager host of a brand Popular podcast. You may
watch boy and George Boy.
Boy Did I say when I walked in,
yeah, he said, who did the graphics for too much Telly and I said, Man, you just Alfa Josh it looks really great just did the graphics and I did the animation. Yeah, it looks great. Thank you, man. But uh, thank you so much for coming on.
Thanks for having me. Thanks. Considering we were all flat when we started Yeah, I'm sweating let's get on the sauce quite hot up here. It's hot out let's get out to our words called Let's walk down to the pub not be allowed in and just cause a ruckus by Ron john on Instagram Ron, don't call you back. You definitely want to deal with that. You always say that? I do. But why are
you following so many people?
I was like, Oh my God, why is Ryan john following me back?
Because if people care enough to lock something that I've done, or that like every like something I'm doing, who am I to be like what is not want to know what they're up? I just
don't want to see people in my algorithm if I don't want to see their content. That's my thing.
Right? What what's your fade like when you're scrolling? Because it's it's pretty random.
Yeah, because of that. Like for instance, I moved to Canberra or Perth. As soon as the radio show is launched, you get a bit of an influx of followers because people are like, oh, who's this new guy on the station? Yeah. And I'd follow most of them back and I don't know them. But if I just moved to Perth, if I suddenly have lots of Perth people in my feed, that's actually a good thing. Because I want to know what, what's going on? Yes, it's like, right in the local paper, sort of, did you get where? Okay, that makes sense. So that was the theory. And then I just started doing it. And I was like, oh, table from can but they will give it enough to walk something that I've done. the least I can do is follow them back and see what they're up to. That's nice.
Yeah, I like it.
So that made me say I'm gonna
follow you back and follow you back. Yeah.
That's really good. I'm a general manager of a media company. I can't be bothered pushing a button on my thoughts.
And you can follow Hump Day replay on Instagram as well while you there
yep. Soon too. And let us know on Hump Day replay. Instagram is still listening Riley into the podcast. Go into whatever those later just post and say I've heard the rumours that this show is bigger than the daily talk show. Yeah, and tag them.
