Toni Lodge: [00:00:09] Okay. I just really don't like that you brushed me in the final moments that I'm like, Oh, are you okay? And then you're like, yeah, I hate that. I am a
Josh Janssen: [00:00:21] Russia.
Toni Lodge: [00:00:22] I hate that about you, of all the things I don't like about you. There are many, and I hate that. Probably one that I rush because I like things to be like loving and I like it to be like, great.
Yeah, here we go. Are there people that you
Josh Janssen: [00:00:43] want, the people that you hate when they're in a good mood?
Toni Lodge: [00:00:47] Yep. I don't really like you when you're in a good mood.
Josh Janssen: [00:00:51] You're in a good mood today. Aren't you? Yeah, I am in a good mood. It's pissing me off.
Toni Lodge: [00:00:57] Awesome.
Josh Janssen: [00:01:00] That's okay. It's nice for you
in a good mood.
Now you're just all like getting a little long. It's annoying me.
Toni Lodge: [00:01:14] Oh, well, I'm sorry that I want to spend time with you. My friend.
Josh Janssen: [00:01:19] Nah, that's nice. You're going to start the show.
Toni Lodge: [00:01:23] Oh, I'm just probably leave this in at the top. Okay. I mean, we might as well, every second of extra content I don't have to think about is great.
Josh Janssen: [00:01:31] Hmm.
Toni Lodge: [00:01:33] That's a positive, but I will not start until you say all right, I'm ready. Let's go.
Josh Janssen: [00:01:38] Okay. When you're ready.
Toni Lodge: [00:01:40] Uh, no. See, that was too rushy.
Josh Janssen: [00:01:43] Oh, I'm super casual. Whenever you want to go, just let me know.
Toni Lodge: [00:01:48] Oh, look at you. Sip it on your coffee. Okay. Hello. Welcome to one trick, Tony, a podcast where you can forget about your own problems.
Cause I'm in a great mood and think about mine instead. Um, we are recording right now. Um, episode 22 Taylor Swift joke. Classic. Josh is here. Sorry. Hi. I I'm actually, I'm not like overly in a good mood, but I'm not in a bad mood. Just today's a good day to have a good day. I did have subway for lunch. That was really good.
Josh Janssen: [00:02:27] Can, I guess what you had?
Toni Lodge: [00:02:29] Yes, please. Don't Oh, fuck. You sound so down. What is wrong with you? Ma
Josh Janssen: [00:02:33] I'm really happy. Um, I think you had, uh, sorry, I'll try and be more excitable. Uh, I think you had a, uh, Italian herb and cheese as the bread, and I think you look like you've had some meatballs.
Toni Lodge: [00:02:52] No, no, I don't do meatball
Josh Janssen: [00:02:55] really was I ride on the bread.
Toni Lodge: [00:02:58] you ride on the bread? You were right on the bread. I always get the eggs. Foot-long I'm an adult. Um, I always get the exact same thing. Oh, I'm always the exact same thing. Chicken. Fill it. Lettuce, cucumber, tomato, heaps of Mayo, cheddar cheese, not toasted. Fuck off.
Josh Janssen: [00:03:19] Wait, what was the meat?
Toni Lodge: [00:03:21] Chicken filler.
You know the one that looks like a big tear drop.
Josh Janssen: [00:03:25] And they've got like, they paint the stripes on them.
Toni Lodge: [00:03:28] Yeah,
Josh Janssen: [00:03:31] it was yum.
Toni Lodge: [00:03:32] Yeah, it was really good. What do you get from subway when you go?
Josh Janssen: [00:03:37] I get it. A foot long. Italian, herb and cheese veggie delight with all the salads. Lots of jalapenos, lots of olives and, um, South white West sauce, which they've now changed to be called a Chipola sauce.
Toni Lodge: [00:03:50] Do you get veggies a lot?
Josh Janssen: [00:03:53] Yep. Why I had a bad experience with the, um, with some of the mates,
Toni Lodge: [00:04:01] what you're like. So, um, just for a little bit of context, unless you're watching on YouTube, which you can, um, excuse me, at the one trick Tony YouTube page, you can watch as live. It's not actually live. Um, but. For anybody that's not watching there.
We are back in fucking lockdown. So we're recording from home. Um, and your holding a microphone as if you're about to MC away.
Josh Janssen: [00:04:27] Yeah. It's got the karaoke vibe, doesn't it? Yeah,
Toni Lodge: [00:04:31] it does. It does. It sounds good time. Um, yeah, it sounds good. Um, but you just sound, you sound really down is something wrong.
Josh Janssen: [00:04:41] Nah. No, I think like, uh, yeah, locked down.
Uh, I dunno. Yeah. Yeah. I mean, I it's, um, it's the, just a known, uh, nothing to report, but I, I would, I, that the hard thing is like, you, it's very hard to sort of, you know, pretend so like when you're in a bad mode, I know that you're in a bad mood when you're in a happy mood. I know that you're in a happy mood.
Toni Lodge: [00:05:10] Yeah, I can tell that you're not in a good mood today. I'm
Josh Janssen: [00:05:13] not in a bad mood, but you're in a better mood. And unfortunately, for some reason, yeah. I'm so Italian, herb, and cheese foot-long with Mayo. Good.
Toni Lodge: [00:05:25] heaps of my mail, the mail at subway. I know it's so bad for you, but I love it. It's so good. Have you
Josh Janssen: [00:05:31] ever made your own mayonnaise?
Toni Lodge: [00:05:33] No, I haven't. It's quite a long process. Isn't
Josh Janssen: [00:05:35] it? No issues eggs. I believe. No,
Toni Lodge: [00:05:39] it doesn't take fucking ages to make a whiskey. Oh, I'm thinking about butter. Sorry.
Josh Janssen: [00:05:47] Yeah.
Toni Lodge: [00:05:49] Aw. Nah, I can't do this. If you're going to give me one word and I do like pancakes, I fucking refuse. I literally, um, Oh gee. It's pancake day today.
I mean, not when this comes out, it will have already passed, but today really eat. Yeah. Yeah. It's today. Shrove Tuesday.
Josh Janssen: [00:06:11] And what did you eat? Pancakes?
Toni Lodge: [00:06:13] No, I have an eight minute yet. Okay. And like, you know, when you would get home from school or whatever, and you'd hope that you were having like naughty dinner, like ordering pizza or whatever, and then you saw that, like, your mom had gotten like a roast out of the freezer, Latin, you were thinking like, Oh, maybe we're going to get takeaway or something, but she'd like, you know, taken something out or she went, Oh, I've got some fucking chicken breasts in the freezer while I go home from work today and tubes had taken chicken out of the freezer, I'm like, mm.
Josh Janssen: [00:06:45] It's a hate crime at that point, isn't it? Yeah.
Toni Lodge: [00:06:47] I just, and it's also just like a really horribly adult thing to do, to have enough forethought to take something out of the freezer to cook like several hours later.
Josh Janssen: [00:06:58] Well, it's a real commitment and I feel like a lockdown. If we were to get anything it's silly food, like surely we're allowed to eat silly food for the next few days.
Toni Lodge: [00:07:07] Yeah. And hashtag support local, you know, if you're, if you're supporting local restaurants except on. So, um, in Melbourne, we are back in lockdown. We went back into lockdown at midnight on Friday, last week. And, um, this podcast comes out on Thursday, so don't know where we'll be at by that point. But we are supposed to be coming back out of lockdown tomorrow night, right?
Like Wednesday midnight. Yeah. Um, I don't think that's going to happen. We've gotten lots of cases.
Josh Janssen: [00:07:37] Do we read too?
Toni Lodge: [00:07:40] Yeah, but we've had like two every day.
Josh Janssen: [00:07:44] I have like six, I mean, not to be from zero, isn't it, but didn't we, I thought like, um, yeah, I have no idea. It's, uh, we'd be guessing at this point, wouldn't we?
Toni Lodge: [00:07:57] Yeah. And you know, we're not a news podcast, it's not one trick news. Um, so yeah. So what have
Josh Janssen: [00:08:05] missing now that, I mean, you've been inside for, uh, three days. What's the. What's the vibe.
Toni Lodge: [00:08:14] Um, I'm actually feeling okay. I feel like it doesn't really change that much for me because I still get to go to work in the office.
So my actual job at Jason PJ, the one that pays me, not this one. Um, I do I get to still go to work? Cause like we're essential because we're broadcasting news and stuff. So I'm very, very thankful that I not only still have my job, but that I'm able to retain some normalcy, I guess, and likes to go into the office and like wake up in the morning and like wash my face and put clothes on and stuff like that.
You know, I feel like that makes such a big difference.
Josh Janssen: [00:08:49] Had, have you ever been pulled over.
Toni Lodge: [00:08:53] No, cause I literally live a minute away from work. Yeah. So I don't have very far to go, but no one on our team has, I don't think, I mean, all of us obviously have like the appropriate documentation to allow us to work.
There's nothing illegal going on. Um, but yeah, so I think that it's probably just like the police, I think have probably bigger fish to fry than people traveling to work at like four and 5:00 AM.
Josh Janssen: [00:09:19] Sure. Did he say anything crazy at that time? Like, I feel like there would be people still like coming out of bars and things like that.
Like not when it's COVID, but just in general,
Toni Lodge: [00:09:30] I feel like it's probably just a bit too late to catch those people. Yeah. Like, I reckon if you were starting work at three, maybe you would see people that stumbling around still, but because it's like four and five, I think it's like just too late, but there are definitely like creepo spookers around.
Like really it can, yeah, it can be a bit spooky in the morning sometimes.
Josh Janssen: [00:09:53] And so do you have any tips, uh, for anyone that has to wake up early for their job? Like what, what did you do to get used to it?
Toni Lodge: [00:10:02] I I'm sorry, this is not interesting. Um, I am naturally a morning person, so it doesn't, it actually doesn't phase me at all.
Like I don't ever snooze my alarm. Like my alarm goes off and I'm up, like I'm up and I'm out of bed. Um, Yeah. Like, I'm just, I've just never really been like that, but, and I naturally like go to bed fairly early. Anyway, like I fall asleep on the couch at nine o'clock o'clock.
Josh Janssen: [00:10:30] So if you fall asleep at nine, do you then wake up at like 11 and walk yourself to bed?
Toni Lodge: [00:10:37] Um, yeah, or tubes or like, um, come over and be like Sweeney stopped.
Josh Janssen: [00:10:45] And so you would sort of in a daze, like walk over to bed. And that was before I
Toni Lodge: [00:10:52] even worked in breakfast radio. Oh yeah. And your mom or dad would like pick you up or you would fall asleep in the car and they would carry you inside
Josh Janssen: [00:11:00] or you just forget, like, it's like, how did I get into bed?
Oh, I love that
Toni Lodge: [00:11:06] feeling. Yeah, we don't really get it now if I've had too many espresso martinis. Yeah. And by that time I'm like in bed and my heart's going like this. Like there's no way I can go to sleep. Anyway.
Josh Janssen: [00:11:20] Do you, um, do you wait before you get to the office?
Toni Lodge: [00:11:23] Yeah. That don't you reckon like a snippet that little bit that we just did.
I reckon that's
Josh Janssen: [00:11:29] going to be, make that a bit. Yeah.
Toni Lodge: [00:11:32] And it was me doing this as well. It was like, Oh, that's so exciting. Like where does the excitement stop? It just doesn't.
Josh Janssen: [00:11:38] Yeah. I mean, espresso martini. Like, I, I, uh, I, I don't have the crazy feeling that some people do. Like, uh, my girlfriend Bray, she cleaned the house when she had espresso martini once.
Like it like the whole, like did all the mirrors in the apartment, which I thought was quite funny.
Toni Lodge: [00:11:57] That would have been a lot. Cause you had quite a, quite a nice apartment before you obviously moved into that delightful home that you live in now, a big, nice two-story house, many bedrooms, big garden. Yeah.
Josh Janssen: [00:12:12] Yes it is. And so to you, um, do you eat before you get to the office? It is nice. Do you, but do you, what, and, and what do you eat?
Toni Lodge: [00:12:22] Um, I donate before I get to work. Normally I, well, actually the last, like last year I did intermittent fasting. Um, so I just didn't eat Lexile, ate dinner, and then I wouldn't eat until I got home and had lunch.
And that was really good because when I'm at work is when I eat the worst, because we get sent like lots of free food.
Josh Janssen: [00:12:46] Any free food, I guess no free food at the moment with COVID. Nah,
Toni Lodge: [00:12:50] that's upsetting. No, no free food, but one of the girls Jane, she like always bakes. So like this morning. Oh my God. It was so fucking amazing.
She made this, um, hedgehog slice with like pistachios on the top. It was absolutely fucked. I had like six pieces
Josh Janssen: [00:13:08] and what's been the best radio perk that you've ever had through your job.
Toni Lodge: [00:13:13] Um, the best perk.
I actually don't know.
Josh Janssen: [00:13:22] I'll give you an example and then you can say, yeah. Oh yeah,
Toni Lodge: [00:13:25] please tell, share yours.
Josh Janssen: [00:13:27] But when I was, um, so I worked on, um, Fifi and Jules on there. Right. Which was like a national radio show drive show. And there was, um, matchbox 20 performed on the rooftop at the radio station.
Thomas. Yeah. He's awesome. Anyway. We got invited. Um, there was, uh, only about 10 of us that were invited to go to rod Laver arena, where they were performing and they did a full, full dress rehearsal with everything set up. But only 10 of us in the whole stadium or whatever you call it, like arena. And so we'll stand like sitting there watching the whole thing and then like Rob would come up and like sing to us and all that sort of thing.
Toni Lodge: [00:14:17] That is really
Josh Janssen: [00:14:18] cool. That's like a, you can't even buy that. That's how cool that is.
Toni Lodge: [00:14:22] No God. And if he could it be bloody expensive,
Josh Janssen: [00:14:25] like the house, I have something, yes, potentially. Uh, So tell me,
Toni Lodge: [00:14:33] um, but I mean, like you get to meet lots of cool people, not the celebrities. Like you get to meet lots of like interesting and different people.
Um, and, uh, I don't know, this is a really hard question to answer because I feel like the only thing that people are interested in hearing is about celebrities and people like, Oh, you work in radio, do you know Hamish? And Andy, like, I feel like that's such like an Australian radio question. Like I wish I knew how much Nandy, if I knew how many Shandy I wouldn't be doing this podcast for free.
I'd be very rich because I'd be doing a podcast with Hamish Nettie. Um,
Josh Janssen: [00:15:13] probably, yeah. Overriding what knowing Hamish and Andy will do for you that doesn't give you an instant sort of
Toni Lodge: [00:15:20] why, why do you know that?
Josh Janssen: [00:15:25] I I'm thinking a lot celebrities. Yes, I do. Uh, a list celebrities. I'll give you an example. The problem is my examples are so good. It's very hard to compete. Uh, people that I filmed in when, when in radio, Justin Bieber pink Kim Kardashian, uh, will Farrell was a good one. Like what I listed is have you had in your, um, problems
Toni Lodge: [00:15:56] when I worked in Sydney, um, Ronan Keating, did his radio show out of our studio.
Um, for quite a while because his wife's Australian, I think. And like, I think maybe like her mom or dad was really sequel, something like that. And he did the show from Australia for like a week or something. And, um, because of the time difference between here and Ireland or England or whatever the fuck, um, he was in the studio like really late at night, which is when I would be there and no one else would be there.
So at the first day he was there, he was like, Oh, Can you tell me where the toilet is? And like I told him where the toilet was and all I could think about was how excited my mum would be. If I could have told her that, like I met Ronan Keating because. Like every mum, my mum obviously loved Ronan Keating, um, you know, loving each day as if it's the last, you know, great songs.
Um, yeah. When you say nothing at all, great songs
Josh Janssen: [00:16:59] is a
Toni Lodge: [00:16:59] roller coaster. Just gotta ride it that long, the heaps. Um, I don't, what else has he got? Um, what else is he got?
Josh Janssen: [00:17:14] But he spent heaps of time in Australia. Didn't he? Wasn't he on one of those like, um,
Toni Lodge: [00:17:19] shows where people, yeah. Yeah, I think so. But, um, but yeah, he's like wife is from here or something like that, but anyway, so I met him.
That was quite cool. Cause he's obviously like a huge celebrity. Um, a couple of years ago I did a stunt for Jason PJ and I met Megan Markle. That's cool. And like she had just announced she was pregnant. So technically also Archie and princess Prince Harry was there also. Um, that was very cool. I sang opera to her and like touched her hands pre COVID
Josh Janssen: [00:17:55] obviously.
Um, were you in like a crowd of people? Yes,
Toni Lodge: [00:17:59] I was. Okay. Oh, does that not counseling?
Josh Janssen: [00:18:03] No, no, no, no, no. It reminds me of when I, um, was dressed up as a corn chip to try and get on Ellen degeneracy, this show. Um, but there is some, I made the news, but there's something a little bit. No, it wasn't. Even in America, she was trying to pick people in Australia and the radio show sent me down and I ended up on the news.
And the, the news anchor after the segment said, was that a corn chip in the background anyway, and then went on to the next story. And that was the most
Toni Lodge: [00:18:34] exciting thing that happened to get that footage
Josh Janssen: [00:18:36] somewhere. I do, but it's, but it's very like it's hanging with punters, right? Like you're really getting it.
Like at that point you are a hundred percent of punter,
Toni Lodge: [00:18:45] but also I feel like, you know, you're getting down and dirty and you don't have any advantage of being talent. So I feel like in that situation, if you get picked out of a crowd, That means you're doing something, right? Because you're with a bunch of other losers that actually care about making Meghan Markle or being a conscious or whatever, you know, but you're still standing out amongst all those freaks, which I think just speaks volumes to
Josh Janssen: [00:19:08] you.
Like the Royals.
Toni Lodge: [00:19:10] No, not really. I, I don't really understand the money that gets put into it. I don't really understand why we care about it still, but my mom was super COVID between, about my mom a lot. She loves Ronan Keating and the fucking Royal family. Um, she was super into the Royals and I, um, she was just so exciting.
Um, she, I remember being a kid. I must have been like. Nine eight or nine or something. And she took me to the zoo and on the way to the zoo, we were, must've been listening to the radio and now it said something about the Royals and mum was like, Oh, bloody hell. Like this is going on. And I was like, Oh, I don't really get the Royals.
Like, what's up with that. And she explained the entire Royal family and like their history to me in the car. Um, like on the way to the zoo. And it's just like one of those memories that I just like can't, couldn't forget if I tried, like, so like, you know, those really random, weird things that you just like, you just remember.
Josh Janssen: [00:20:17] Yeah. Yeah. I remember like learning about what a cold front looks like from the weather. Like I'm in grade three, Mr. Van brighter taught us about that. And I was like, I felt like a meteorologist at that point. Yeah, I would, yeah.
Toni Lodge: [00:20:34] I remember my mom teaching me how to use, how to tell time as well. It was like the morning before we were going to the, um, the Royal show, which in Perth is like an agricultural show, but it's like the Royal Easter show in Sydney.
It's at the Royal Melbourne show. Like, it's like just a massive fair thing. And like with rides and stuff, and the morning of going to the show, my mum taught me how to tell time.
Josh Janssen: [00:20:59] That's like digital or analog
Toni Lodge: [00:21:02] now love, like, she taught me how to take, to read the time. And I just remember then, um, my sister Libby crimping my hair and painting my fingernails.
Um, they were blue. And she used like one of those, um, nail pens that I'm pretty sure I got in a Sabrina secrets, um, magazine. Um, and she let dotted drew like little flowers onto my fingernails and I was wearing a blue Hawaiian shirt. My hair was cramped and I remember this photo of me. I don't have it anymore, but I'd have no idea where it is, but there's this photo of me.
And I'm like this.
Josh Janssen: [00:21:41] Very pouty. And you've got your hands. Yeah. Yeah. And I've
Toni Lodge: [00:21:44] got my hands up. I've got my hands up so you can see like the finger art and like the hair is cramped, like, like, and I just showed, I looked hot as fuck. Yeah. Oh yeah. Tell me about
Josh Janssen: [00:21:57] it. Yeah, it was huge. Do you think it was cause I was a, uh, a chubby kid, like, and I remember saying on queer eye for the straight guy, they said that, um, strong, vertical stripes was slimming.
And so I went to best and less than two years. I only wore vertical stripes, but they're all business shirts. So I was sort of like a, you know, a 13 year old at parties wearing a full, like, like I was an accountant, like a trendy and an accountant, but I also wore a lot of Hawaiian shirts. Yeah.
Toni Lodge: [00:22:31] I feel like the Hawaiian shirt is like, um, it's allowed pattern to like distract the seat.
The fact that you, like, aren't very happy with your body. Yeah.
Josh Janssen: [00:22:43] Either way. And you'll be okay. Like it was still fun.
Toni Lodge: [00:22:46] Yeah. And that you knew that like at least people then would be like, Great shirt and they would distract from anything else you had going on.
Josh Janssen: [00:22:56] Yeah. And did you
Toni Lodge: [00:22:57] do you've got a pimple or something?
Josh Janssen: [00:23:02] Well, I
Toni Lodge: [00:23:03] dunno, it's just a joke to me because of the Delilah. Yep. Yes. Yeah. So they would release the like show bag catalog, like a month before the show. And I would sit down the day that it came out and I'd flick through it and write down everything that I wanted and then I'd color it and make a short list and like write down how much they all cost, like what they had in them.
And then I would talk to mom about like what my budget was going to look like. This is like a huge thing. And so the show was in October, so, but all of September, it would be. All I would think about
Josh Janssen: [00:23:37] really that much of it was such a related,
Toni Lodge: [00:23:42] well, the show bag thing. So my mom used to let me get like one show bag that was like, From a TV show or like a movie or whatever, you know, how you would get some show bags that had, like, for example, one that sticks in my mind is a Hannah Montana show bag that had a week, a blond Hannah Montana week and, um, like stickers and like a folder for school or a pencil case or fucking whatever.
Um, so I would fill out to pick one. Yeah. I remember having a rug, rats, one, like all of that stuff, like amazing. And then the other ones would be like food ones. Um, but I just, I love the rides. I love looking at the animals. They used to have like a big Woolworths pavilion where you like, got to just like sample heaps of food.
And I like remember being really, really at all and used to be able to get a sausage on a stick and it was free. Like it was a sample and then like, A year later, it was 10 cents. And then a year later it was like 20 cents. And then it was a gold coin donation. And a couple of years ago, tubes and I went and I think it was like $10 for three sausages or
Josh Janssen: [00:24:48] something.
Toni Lodge: [00:24:51] fucking robbery,
Josh Janssen: [00:24:54] daylight fucking saving. Um,
uh, which I didn't get. Um, I just
Toni Lodge: [00:25:03] thought, um, and also it doesn't affect the price of sustainers
Josh Janssen: [00:25:06] in WWI. Yeah. D WWI. They don't have daylight saving, do they?
Toni Lodge: [00:25:13] Um, they used to, but not anymore. Which I think is dumb because I think daylight, this is like controversial Dell. That savings is so great. I just don't know why people wouldn't like it.
Cause I just think it's the best. Isn't
Josh Janssen: [00:25:28] saying daylight savings with the S a bit. Yeah, it's a bit Bogan. I think I may not want to do it, but yeah, I was very careful. Like you just say yeah. People on Instagram doing stories like it's daylight saving, not savings you.
Toni Lodge: [00:25:47] Oh yeah. Oh yeah. I guess, cause it's not like a saving as in like saving money.
Um, I've always just said daylight savings.
Josh Janssen: [00:25:57] Yeah. Yeah. Don't be embarrassed. And so are your rides girl, like have you, um, do you go on like scary rides? Um,
Toni Lodge: [00:26:10] um, yeah, I love rides. Um, yeah, the scarier the better, like, I fucking love them.
Josh Janssen: [00:26:19] Um, and so are you, do you
Toni Lodge: [00:26:21] like Roz? You seem like someone that would be bag holder, not a ride person.
Josh Janssen: [00:26:26] Yeah, no, I, um, so Superman. At movie world. I did that. I remember, and that felt really safe, but
Toni Lodge: [00:26:36] thrilling. I've never been to movie world, actually. I know what you're referring to because I'm an Australian person, but I've never been,
Josh Janssen: [00:26:43] but you've just, I just think that there's too many things have gone wrong.
That I just, I can't, I don't want to deal with that anymore. Like, I've got enough stress in my life that I don't, you know? Yeah.
Toni Lodge: [00:26:57] But it is fun. And as an anxious person, I don't do a lot of things just because they're fun. I find fun. Fairly arbitrary, but rods. I just love it.
Josh Janssen: [00:27:07] Yeah. Unless it's the Woolworths pavilion, which Oh yeah.
The sausages. Yeah. Yeah. I've heard of a Woolworth's
Toni Lodge: [00:27:15] I think it's the RGA pavilion now.
Josh Janssen: [00:27:18] I'm really
Toni Lodge: [00:27:20] sorry. Not the pavilion. Pavilion
Josh Janssen: [00:27:24] a good one. Don't swallow your ELLs. Uh, and so have you, have you been to any overseas, like fun parks or whatever they called theme parks.
Toni Lodge: [00:27:36] I've been to Disneyland in, um, France and in Japan I've been to, yeah.
Um, I've been to universal studios in, um, In Japan as well and Disney see in Japan. So there's like two different Disneyland's in Japan. Um, and one is like all of the same movies, like finding Nemo, et cetera. And the other one is like normal Disneyland.
Josh Janssen: [00:28:07] Do you remember the documentary black fish?
Toni Lodge: [00:28:11] What's that?
Josh Janssen: [00:28:12] Tell me more. It's all about say world and it sort of, after you watch it, like the idea is you don't want to. Go to SeaWorld anymore because it's sorta mean what they do to the whales.
Toni Lodge: [00:28:23] It's pretty fun. Yeah.
Josh Janssen: [00:28:26] Zoos in general, I think. Well, I think it's just like, you know, I don't know. Did you say tiger
Toni Lodge: [00:28:34] King?
Yes, I did watch tiger King and then I liked it so much that I then watched the Louis Thoreau documentary, where he went to the target King place.
Josh Janssen: [00:28:46] Yeah, I really like Louie stuff. And, um, uh, I mean, tiger King was only a year ago. That that was a real,
Toni Lodge: [00:28:54] how fucked is that?
Josh Janssen: [00:28:56] Yeah, it's weird. Yeah.
Toni Lodge: [00:29:01] It's weird being back in lockdown because it is like, Even though, I feel like I'm doing fine this time at the moment.
Um, depending obviously how long this, this goes on for. And that really sucks because obviously people in like London and the UK have been locked down for months and months and months. And that's really sheer. Yeah. Like New Zealand just went back into it
Josh Janssen: [00:29:25] with all these
Toni Lodge: [00:29:26] speakers, I guess that. Whoever can work from home.
And if you can't like, you're just fucked. Is
Josh Janssen: [00:29:33] it like junk too? They have like junk caper and stuff in the UK. Like, I wonder what that looks like. Well,
Toni Lodge: [00:29:38] that's what I was about to say. Like, I don't know what their, like, financial support looks like and stuff. You'd hope that there'd be quite a bit because they went through, they've gone through all of this during winter as well.
So it's not as if there's things, you know, like where you can. Get out and try and do things and you can't anyway, compare it to me, click you can't really do much. Um, but yeah, so I fairly shit. There's all these people that have been in locked down for ages new. Zealand's just gone back into lock down in Oakland, um, for like three days or something, which is fucking shit.
Um, but it's weird. Like triggering attitude feeling. Isn't it? That like we've, I feel like we've come so far. And then all of a sudden it was just like, Oh, Like saying your house again. And you know, we're back to like recording this podcast on zoom and I'm like, you're working from home and all of that.
It's just so bizarre.
Josh Janssen: [00:30:33] Yeah. I mean, to be honest, I don't mind it like, um, but I understand that, uh, in saying that there is a lot of issues with it, for instance, if you, um, In, you know, domestic violence situations or like there's so many people that it's not good for. Even if you think about like the pandemic as being really bad on people who were already struggling.
And so, yeah. That's why it doesn't impact me, but I know it's impacting a lot of other people, so I'm like, I understand why we need everything open, but as someone who's introverted.
Toni Lodge: [00:31:16] Yeah, yeah. But I guess that's kind of what I mean, like I get, um, like I feel bad for saying like, Oh, it's really triggering because we've been kind of back to some sort of normal for a little while in Melbourne for, you know, a bit like the borders kind of opened up.
Like you could get back to WUA if you know that. Cause obviously they've had like the hardest border that we've experienced, like. Um, you know, and you could kind of come and go a little bit more and see family and whatever. And like, it just kind of felt we were on the right track and now this is happening.
I just don't think it's really gonna return to, I signed normal with like beta breadth of like, it's not really going to be the same, but like, until they can figure this vaccine out, which is supposed to happen. And not, not too long, like by the end of the year, hopefully at least some people have it, but yeah, it's just fuck.
It's just so fucked.
Josh Janssen: [00:32:11] Do you write a diary
Toni Lodge: [00:32:12] really bad? No, I don't. Okay. Like, as in like, do I journal? Is that what you mean? No, I don't
Josh Janssen: [00:32:22] have you. I feel like maybe you had like back in the day, like, did you have to, like, I'm trying to think of what, uh, Th there was something that your sister had. I'm sounding like John Edwards, you know how like just fucking talking shit until it connects a dot.
Remember you? I remember you. Yeah. I remember you said something about, there was you had like a box full of stuff, but I thought it was diaries, but I can't remember what it was. There was NWA that you were going to get sent over. Bill was going to cost tapes and get it
Toni Lodge: [00:32:51] sent over. They've got all like all of tubes and I's books.
Josh Janssen: [00:32:55] Yeah, sure. I think I could have been, but you've never kept, have you ever done any journaling
Toni Lodge: [00:33:01] ever? Oh, I've definitely like being given diaries, like as a kid and kept them for maybe a week, but just like not gotten into the habit. Yeah. Yeah. I feel like I just talk so much that by the time my day is done, I just don't have any words left.
Like, I just get everything out all the time. Like if I get home from work and something's bothered me or like, I'm about to go to bed and I've kept something in, or whatever tubs will look at me and he'll be like, what, what is it like? Because he knows that if I don't get it out of my body, I would just stew on it and I'll die.
Like, so I guess in that respect, like I literally can't keep things in. But I mean, journaling, I think is definitely, um, like a really,
Oh, what's the word I'm looking for?
Valuable. Doesn't really, I don't think like give it enough credit, but I think it's a really good tool for people that maybe don't have people that they can be super honest with or. Super open with and stuff. Like, I think it's really, really good. I just don't think it's for me. Yeah. Yeah. Uh,
Josh Janssen: [00:34:22] nah, nah, I don't, you don't have to say Mike
Toni Lodge: [00:34:24] you'd really have the patients to journal.
Josh Janssen: [00:34:27] Yeah. I've um, I'm a bit Flemmi from that almond milk. That's weird that shouldn't be Fleming from meals. So I'm sorry about that guys. Um, uh, pick it up from there. Oh yeah. Okay, sorry. No, that's okay. Uh, yeah, no, I, I would love to, I'm not good at sticking to things. I, uh, you know, I'd like to, I want to read more.
I, so I downloaded an app called, uh Speechify, which turns any text into, um, or like a spoken word. And so you can shop my idea was that I was going to like, Each morning, put all my emails in there. And then when I walk to work, I can have a robot read out my emails. Um, and, uh, but I tried it last time I tried it last night.
It was too robotic.
Toni Lodge: [00:35:21] I think also it would be annoying that it would read out like, so at the bottom of my, you know, how at the bottom of an email signature, it says like, yeah, yeah. And then, so is it going to go through and be like, 12 Smith straight five, one, two, one, Newcastle, like that's so annoying. Yeah.
Yeah. Like that just sounds horrible. Like at the bottom of, you know, how at the bottom of an email, it says like this email has been sent from BLI. If you have gotten it for the wrong reasons, you know, like imagine that this email is privileged and confidential, like that would just stress me out.
Josh Janssen: [00:35:55] Yeah.
You've just fast forward on that bit, I guess. Did you have any new year's resolutions? I feel like potentially people just said 20, 21, no news resolutions.
Toni Lodge: [00:36:08] Well, I actually, I have this written in to talk, Oh my God. Sorry. I just burped. And that test is my subway.
Josh Janssen: [00:36:15] Oh, lucky you.
Toni Lodge: [00:36:19] I like the taste of subway. So, you know, when you burp afterwards, you're like, Hmm, I didn't mind that.
Um, it was actually something I was going to talk about in the first episode. We just never got to it. Um, but I, I mean, I don't really, I think that, you know how they say that if you call something a diet, like the language around that makes you like. Not successful. It's like calling something a new year's resolution.
Isn't very good because like the, yeah, the, um, you shouldn't
Josh Janssen: [00:36:47] mention it. There was a whole Ted talk I watched on, like, if you mentioned what your goals are going to be, it lets off the same chemical responses if you did them. And I can relate to that. I say, shit that I'm going to do all the time. I just never do it.
Toni Lodge: [00:37:01] I agree with that. Yeah. I'm a real Sayer. I'm not. Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah. Again, it's not good. Yeah. But see, you got gung ho on shit immediately, and then you just like, and then you just get over it. Cause yeah. Well, I guess that's why, because you're like, well, I've done it now.
Josh Janssen: [00:37:19] Well, even, I remember I tried to do a million steps in a month and then on day three, I'd got severely injured.
Cause it's 30,000 steps a day. That's a lot.
Toni Lodge: [00:37:30] And also like, cause you spend all that money on that really expensive exercise bike, and you're like, I'm gonna not get anywhere, except unless I do the same amount of kilometers on my bike. And then
Josh Janssen: [00:37:43] yeah, how's this.
Toni Lodge: [00:37:46] So it's kind of turned into us. She can't and you will, the pools are sharp.
Josh Janssen: [00:37:53] We doing it last week. We swimming last week.
Toni Lodge: [00:37:56] Um, no, I had a really busy week at work last week.
Josh Janssen: [00:38:00] Isn't it? Isn't it fucked how we lie? Like I'm someone, if someone says, ah, I, you, um, have you been using the bike unless I am using it tonight.
Toni Lodge: [00:38:14] Yeah, but you know, you're not, you know, you're not going to go on your bike tonight.
Josh Janssen: [00:38:20] Why are we so shit?
Toni Lodge: [00:38:22] Uh, I don't know. No, I'm the worst. I, and I just like promise myself stuff. Like I'm like, Oh, this week I like really need to get my shit together. And like, not order so much junk food or not like. Not exercise because I really need to do it because it makes me feel better. Not because I care about being thinner or whatever.
It's just like, I just, I like feeling strong and I like feeling fit and healthy. I also liked not getting puffed, just walking downstairs to my car via the lift,
Josh Janssen: [00:38:53] you know, then going upstairs,
Toni Lodge: [00:38:57] downstairs. No, it's yeah. Downstairs in the lift. Like I literally just walked 10 steps to the lift and then 10 steps to my car and I get in the car.
Ooh, that was a big one. Like turn the activity off on my Apple watch. Um, and I just, like I say that I need to do more and now I just don't and then I like beat myself up about it and then I feel depressed. So I'm like, Oh, I couldn't possibly work out. Cause I'm so depressed.
Josh Janssen: [00:39:22] Oh, I get that. I said that I would only watch TV if I was using my bike.
Do you know how hard that is? Yeah. I can imagine watching like 20 minutes of a 40 minute documentary and I'm like, I'm done. That's like, I wanted to watch more TV.
Toni Lodge: [00:39:39] Yeah. But what are you going to do? Yeah. Well, anyway, all of, all of that aside, um, the, actually the, um, new year's resolution that I set myself that was this year that I wanted to do stand up.
Josh Janssen: [00:39:58] Great. Yeah, we've done open mic
Toni Lodge: [00:40:01] before. No, I've not. I've never done it. And I've, I've never even wanted to, except for the past, probably year and a half. Um, and I actually wanted to do it last year and then I'll be obvious. Obviously, obviously everything was shot and it was, I was just like,
Josh Janssen: [00:40:19] you stand up character.
I could imagine you stand up character standing like that.
Toni Lodge: [00:40:24] Don't you think what's the deal with airplane foods,
Josh Janssen: [00:40:29] Tony here,
Toni Lodge: [00:40:31] and it sounds like a really bad Jilin.
Um, but yeah, I, and that was what I said that I was going to do this year. That like, I would, I would go to like an open mic night and do stand up comedy.
Josh Janssen: [00:40:48] Yeah. Do you write any jokes?
Toni Lodge: [00:40:51] Well, I would have to for the, for the occasion,
Josh Janssen: [00:40:56] well, to give you an idea how bad I am, like I said, I'm one of right jokes watched.
Yes. I watched a video about how to write jokes and bought a lot of books that were the same books that, uh, Jerry Seinfeld felt would write like these yellow, legal pads. And now I've just got a lot of yellow, legal pads, not many jokes.
Toni Lodge: [00:41:18] Yeah. It's, uh, I, I I've written, I've written lots of stuff. No, no. Sure.
Um, but you know, maybe, you know, what I should do is try and write stuff and then try it out on the podcast. Yeah. But what have
Josh Janssen: [00:41:39] you got, like what's in your notes? Can you just, even if it's just an idea,
Toni Lodge: [00:41:44] My notes are all on my phone, which I'm using as a webcam. Oh. So I actually don't
Josh Janssen: [00:41:50] have write down.
Toni Lodge: [00:41:52] Okay.
Um, well, or if I think of like a good joke, um, then I like were, write it down and then later come back to it and like be able to flesh it out. Like I said, um, no, I don't want to say, cause I don't know. No, say it. No. Come on. Nah, I don't. I honestly, I don't think it's good. So come on. No, I just, no, well, I've just thought about a few, like things that I would maybe use to open with and about like how, you know, um, like obviously doing standoff is like really super intimidating.
So I've thought about a couple of things that would maybe work for that. I can't remember them right now. I'm not going to do it right now. Cause it makes me very nervous. Um, How about I write a joke this week and next week I'll do it on the podcast. Okay.
Josh Janssen: [00:42:49] That sounds good. That sounds good. Is it like a sort of a premise, like give us like a little outline or something?
Toni Lodge: [00:42:57] Well, I wrote a show like a standup show probably two years ago and it got it just, sorry. I say show probably goes for about 15 minutes. Um, maybe 10. Uh, and it was about like kind of centered around me being like a real loner as a kid and like, Not having many mates. Um, and like I thought that was pretty funny.
I did it for tours and he, he laughed. He thought it was good. Um, but yeah, so that kind of thing, but nothing like super intense, like I don't have like a million jokes that I've written. I've never done a fucking standup comedy workshop or anything. Like, I don't really know much about it, but I think that I would be good at it.
And so that's why that's my goal for the year.
Josh Janssen: [00:43:44] Have you ever thought about writing an autobiography
Toni Lodge: [00:43:48] all the time?
I literally think about it all the time, so I can't wait until I'm famous enough for people to care about what I've written like Allah, Tanya Hennessy and Christian Hall, um, where they're at a point now where they're they're writing books. Isn't that amazing. Couldn't
Josh Janssen: [00:44:06] you just write it now so that, because when you are rich and famous, you won't like your time's worth nothing right now.
Why don't you do now when you're poor and unfamous so that when you read it
Toni Lodge: [00:44:21] autobiography now, but if I had an autobiography now the best bit hasn't happened yet.
Josh Janssen: [00:44:28] Sure. I mean, that could be the whole name of the autobi autobiography. Couldn't it?
Toni Lodge: [00:44:34] Oh, I like that. I'm going to write that down. Actually.
Josh Janssen: [00:44:37] What about you just start with chapter one, the best, best hasn't happened yet.
Toni Lodge: [00:44:45] I'm actually just writing that down. Cause I think it's a good idea. Okay. Oh my God. Should I do that? Should I write a book and be like, I'm absolutely not. I want to buy my book.
Josh Janssen: [00:44:52] Could you do, could you start writing a memoir? And then every week on the podcast, you just read a passage from it.
Toni Lodge: [00:45:02] Okay. See if I start writing a book with the attitude of like, yeah.
I'm no one, but people will buy it. That's kind of what's happened with this podcast. I thought that I'm no one people will still listen.
Josh Janssen: [00:45:17] People, listen, we have heaps of people listening. I don't
Toni Lodge: [00:45:20] think we do. I think it might just be my sister clicking on it. Lots of times.
Josh Janssen: [00:45:25] What's sad.
Toni Lodge: [00:45:27] Yeah, it is. It's so
Josh Janssen: [00:45:28] sad.
Toni Lodge: [00:45:32] So you got me there. Oh, okay. I mean, that's what I was talking about last week. And then those people messaged me like, Oh, I love that you do the podcast. It's so funny, which is lovely. But insincere, I feel.
Josh Janssen: [00:45:45] But doesn't that show you that they're listening.
Toni Lodge: [00:45:49] Yeah. Which is lovely. Um, I actually also got a lot of messages.
We've um, Some great jokes last week. Um, and I've the Google home mini. Um, so some of them messaged me and said, Oh, I was listening to your, to your podcast as I was walking along the beach and guess what I found? And I was like, what? Um, then someone else messages Ray and said, Hmm, Last time I ordered Chinese food instead of a bag of free prawn crackers.
I got a big bag of food, which I thought was so funny. Uh, yeah, I was very, very impressed with that as a joke.
Josh Janssen: [00:46:36] Yeah, I think there's, I'm actually looking down. There's a Google home mini very close, but I can't be bothered. Unplugging it for the gag. Insert gag here. Yeah.
Toni Lodge: [00:46:49] Well, when I went to the Royal show, instead of fighting for a sausage on a stick, I got a free
Josh Janssen: [00:46:56] cookie.
Yeah. When I first started going, they, you know, you'd get one for free and then it was 10 cents. Then it gold coin.
Toni Lodge: [00:47:06] And then you just got it for free. The Google home mini, you gave them a free Google home mini and they gave you the sausage in return
Josh Janssen: [00:47:15] person.
Toni Lodge: [00:47:17] Oh, nah, I, I listened to the, I listened to music a lot, but I listened to the same stuff all the time. Okay. So
Josh Janssen: [00:47:24] you're not
Toni Lodge: [00:47:24] like I want to be that person.
Josh Janssen: [00:47:27] I love that. So
Toni Lodge: [00:47:28] yeah. Who doesn't.
Josh Janssen: [00:47:31] Yeah, I guess, I mean, but um, I want to be the person that just loves, like, wouldn't it be cool. Like, could you imagine having like a record player having vinyl
Toni Lodge: [00:47:42] record player?
Josh Janssen: [00:47:44] Just with Natalie and Brawley is tone.
Toni Lodge: [00:47:48] No, we, we have a record player. We have like lots of vinyl and stuff and like , I
Josh Janssen: [00:47:55] don't know. Okay.
Toni Lodge: [00:47:56] That'd be cool. Maybe I'll see if I can find it online. And so what
Josh Janssen: [00:48:01] were you saying? So you went towards, have a bunch of like, you have a bunch of records.
Toni Lodge: [00:48:06] Yeah. Like both of us really like music, but I never am like discovering new stuff.
You know how I've talked about this on the podcast before, you know how some people are people that like will listen to their Spotify discover weekly. I know that just recently you've become an Apple music person, but you know how people do that. And they listen to their like discover playlists and stuff.
I don't do that because new music just gives me anxiety and I can't deal with it.
Josh Janssen: [00:48:28] Yeah. Oh, well, I've become a real big country guy. So, um, there's a, there's a singer called Luke Bryan. Oh yes. Go to good song.
Toni Lodge: [00:48:39] Is he the guy that used to be a judge on American idol?
Josh Janssen: [00:48:42] I think he was. How do you know that?
Toni Lodge: [00:48:46] Um, I just, I smile.
I don't know that that's
Josh Janssen: [00:48:51] may. Yeah. And I just like. It's just, there's something so fun about country music, just the lyrics. They're just so pure.
Toni Lodge: [00:49:01] Yeah. I love Shania Twain.
Josh Janssen: [00:49:03] Yeah, but that don't impress me much now. Um, that was a good joke. It was Shania Twain joke. I probably should have
Toni Lodge: [00:49:12] I got it. I did. It'd be good if you were a better producer and you had a little sting and it was like that don't impress
Josh Janssen: [00:49:19] UMaine.
It'd be great. But I would have to have known that we were going to talk about it, but you should have just sign. If you're
Toni Lodge: [00:49:25] a better producer, you would have just when
Josh Janssen: [00:49:28] you were a kid, did you dance to the song? I feel like a woman.
Toni Lodge: [00:49:33] Yeah, of course. Yeah. Give me your one shit. Getting ready for the role show your sister was cooking.
Should I try and learning how to tell the time?
Josh Janssen: [00:49:47] Did you, um, have birdie beetles in yeah.
Toni Lodge: [00:49:52] Yeah. One of my favorites.
Josh Janssen: [00:49:55] Yeah, but you know what they're made of
Toni Lodge: [00:49:58] fucking plastic and soap? No, no,
Josh Janssen: [00:50:00] no. Do you actually know what they're made of. Not, this is going to blow up. This is one of my favorite trivia trivia questions.
What are the birdie Beatles made out of they're made out of the leftovers or like the cut-offs from violet crumbles.
Toni Lodge: [00:50:17] Oh, that's why I don't like them because while it crumbly, it's
Josh Janssen: [00:50:21] a PVE crunchy. Isn't it
Toni Lodge: [00:50:23] crunchy? Yeah. I do not like violet crumbles. I love picnics. Really? I was just talking to Thomas about this the other day.
Do you know what else is a really good chocolate bar that I think is totally underwriter Martinez.
Josh Janssen: [00:50:38] Okay. Yeah. Mauro. So yeah, in a Twix are okay. Two biscuits, I think.
Toni Lodge: [00:50:45] Oh, no. See, I like that. Cause it's a bit of flat. Nah,
Josh Janssen: [00:50:49] nah, I want a biscuit all to biscuit, but the, the Mo I remember as a kid, uh, my dad having a friend from New Zealand and you, you couldn't get Mauro bars.
In Australia. Um, you could only
Toni Lodge: [00:51:03] get them in the favorites favorites. It would do my head in these things as kids catching up.
Josh Janssen: [00:51:11] So my dad's friend brought back in an esky from New Zealand of Mauro bars. And I took all of my undies out of my undies drawer, Chuck them on the ground and put more cars. And I would, I had like 30 Mars and I'll count them every day.
And then, cause I was worried that my brothers were going to take one. Yeah, and I would eat like a full, and then I relived the moment at a, um, at a workplace where, when you went into
Toni Lodge: [00:51:41] someone's underwear drawer and it was
Josh Janssen: [00:51:46] Um, I went to Coles supermarket and they had Mauro bars for a dollar. And I have this tweak about like, I love buying things in bulk and, um, Yeah. And so I bought every Moro bar they had, um, and like took the actual boxes, you know, that they use to display them. And so I bought them all and my, uh, one of my colleagues will like, they felt like it was a bad decision.
Cause I bought, you know, 30 of them or 30 bucks worth or whatever, the dollar range. And she said, Josh, you don't like, I was trying to lose weight at the time. Like, Josh, you don't need these. And so she went and handed them all out to everyone at once. Like, thanks, Josh. And I was like, I sort of done a PR, I was really pumped about the Mari pots, but you know what?
She did me a favor.
Toni Lodge: [00:52:40] Yeah. Yeah. Except also like what a bitch.
Josh Janssen: [00:52:44] Yeah, yeah, yeah. Yeah. Very true. Don't tell me what, wait. Yeah.
Toni Lodge: [00:52:50] Yeah. Like if I want to eat 30 Maro bars, like whether you think it's a good choice or not, let me do it. Uh,
Josh Janssen: [00:52:55] but the problem is that then, then she made me feel bad because she was like, no, you keep talking about you going to do this and do that.
And at the time, There was a pregnant woman in our team who was just eating like chocolate mousse for lunch. And so I was just eating the exact same as her, like as a flag, I was just eating
Toni Lodge: [00:53:16] like,
Josh Janssen: [00:53:18] yeah. I was just like, Oh yeah, I'll get you a Chucky moose. Like it was just, yeah,
Toni Lodge: [00:53:25] it was a fun time.
Josh Janssen: [00:53:26] It is really good at if you ever made your own.
Toni Lodge: [00:53:29] Yeah. Yeah, I have, it's never gone. Great. Except there's like a vegan one that tubes and I make, and it's the chili just like cocoa, sorry, cacao powder and coconut milk.
Josh Janssen: [00:53:43] Have you ever done the diet?
Toni Lodge: [00:53:46] Yeah, we did it like before, before it was cool. Like, it was like, when I am, we did it. Probably like three months and, um, it like worked for tubs, but it didn't agree with me.
Like it just made me really sick.
Josh Janssen: [00:54:05] Yeah. I remember I made, um, keto friendly chocolate mousse and in the process, I fucked like four avocados, which cost a lot of money, but yeah, it was like, Avocados is chocolate mousse. And like, people like it tastes just like chocolate mood. Like you watch the YouTube. Oh my God.
It's like, I can't even tell the difference. And it literally, it tastes like whackamole that someone's accidentally put chocolate in disgusting.
Toni Lodge: [00:54:36] Yeah. You just like really hate yourself if you try and lie to yourself in that way. Yeah. Like, yeah. It's like me, if I sat here and said like, I'm going to work out after we record this podcast is the same as like, this tastes just like chocolate mousse that you get from red rooster.
It's just not, why would I do myself that disservice?
Josh Janssen: [00:54:55] What about fat bombs? Did you ever have fat bombs when you're doing keto? Lots of fat bomb. So you get like dark chocolate. You get coconut, uh, what's coconut oil. You, um, put it in the microwave. So you go sort of like one one-to-one ratio. And so you melt the chocolate in the coconut oil, you mix it all up and then you, um, get like a small ramekin and you put a blob.
Of paint Bata. And then, so you make, it's essentially peanut butter cups and you put the coconut eat chocolate mix into the ramekin, you put it in the fridge and it goes hard. And so then when you eat with a spoon, you get painted, it's literally like a peanut butter cup. They delicious, the reason they call it a fat bomb is because keto is all about high fat, high fat.
And so the coconut oil pro provides that fat.
Toni Lodge: [00:55:54] Oh, that sounds really good. I love peanut butter cups.
Josh Janssen: [00:55:59] Um, have you had Justin's peanut butter cups? Nah, they're good, man. Just some guy that makes them,
Toni Lodge: [00:56:08] so I'm guessing it's one guy and he's in his kitchen. He's making peanut butter
Josh Janssen: [00:56:13] maybe. Um, I can't remember.
Have you been to America? You haven't have you.
Toni Lodge: [00:56:18] I haven't, no. I wish that I had.
Josh Janssen: [00:56:22] Yeah. They have like some they've they're a big peanut butter and chocolate country, like, you know, peanut butter,
Toni Lodge: [00:56:29] right? Yeah. And that's just where I deserve to be, because I love peanut butter. Oh, so good.
Josh Janssen: [00:56:36] Yeah. I remember I got so much, like I was eating so much peanut butter and in San Francisco, I went to this like, um, it was like a chocolate place in San Francisco.
I can't remember what it's called. I think it starts with a G and they did like a San Francisco golden, uh, like ice cream. Okay. What's what's the bridge called golden gate bridge. The golden gate bridge. Yeah. And so it was a golden gate bridge thing and they had peanut butter on it. Anyway, I remember.
Walking and realizing that I dropped a big dollop of peanut butter on my shoe. And just in that moment, I'm like, I've, I'm in trouble. And
Toni Lodge: [00:57:12] like, you know, when you're on holiday and you've obviously only brought like a select amount of shoes and clothes, and then you just think about, and you're like, I've fucked the holiday now.
Like, because every time you go somewhere, you've got those shoes on with the fucking pen. Yeah.
Josh Janssen: [00:57:29] Constant reminder. I'm sorry. How long were you in Japan for?
Toni Lodge: [00:57:34] Oh, sorry, you go. Oh, I was just going to say, I think about that when I like hurt myself or like have a blocked nose. I'm like, Oh, I've wasted all this time.
Not appreciating the fact that I didn't have a sore knee or didn't have a blocked nose. Um, the first time we went to Japan, I, we went for a month I think. And the second time we went for weeks, tops has heaps of friends that live there. Um,
Josh Janssen: [00:58:02] so yeah. Why does he have so many friends?
Toni Lodge: [00:58:06] Um, just in general or, um, no, like three.
So the first time we went there, three of his best friends, like from his life. School friendship group, um, have had all moved over there. One of them has moved home now, but, um, but yeah, he, um, so one of them, Kyle, he's like married, he's got two little girls to, uh, um, a Japanese girl. They live in Tokyo together and his other best friend Jani, um, lives there.
And he like teaches English and like, yeah, he's loving it. They love it there. Yeah. Even like through COVID and stuff, they've been like, no, we're more than happy to stay. Which is really awesome. Do you think you
Josh Janssen: [00:58:47] could teach English?
Toni Lodge: [00:58:49] Um, I'm just don't think I'd be a very good teacher because I'm not very patient.
Josh Janssen: [00:58:55] Yeah. And I wonder what people need, you know, like they say, Oh, you can, if you can speak it, you can teach it. I'm like, is that really true?
Toni Lodge: [00:59:04] Well, like, so for those Japanese classes to be like a Japanese teacher to be an English teacher in Japan, literally they don't let the teachers speak in Japanese at all.
So you don't need to be able to speak any Japanese, cause you're not actually allowed to speak to them in Japanese, like obviously to live in Japan because, um, it's such like a polite country. It's like the right thing to do to try and speak as much as you can at least so that you can like be polite when you're asking for things.
And, um, Handing money over and stuff. But, um, but yeah, for the most part, like, and every time, like both times that we were in Japan, um, we like Toby and I were trying to practice our Japanese on people, but they wanted to practice their English on us. So we would like walk in there and try and like strike up and they'd be like, Oh, don't worry about it.
Like, I can speak a bit of English and you'd be like, Oh, thank you so much. Like, you'd feel really rude, but they loved it. Like, yeah.
Josh Janssen: [01:00:08] Yeah. I wanted to like, teach us, say hi, like welcome to English class,
Toni Lodge: [01:00:14] everyone. And then yeah. Oh yeah. Got you. Yeah, I dunno. But yeah, like you said, apparently it's just like, Oh, well you don't need to know anything, but I'm like, how much is nothing?
It's like when a person it's like, when a fit person says, she like, Oh, it's so easy. I'm like, well, how easy is it?
Josh Janssen: [01:00:33] Like, is it like, I wonder. You know, like pointing at a toothbrush and saying toothbrush, like just pointing at items, I guess everyone bringing in an item and I'll say,
Toni Lodge: [01:00:44] and I'll just tell you what it
Josh Janssen: [01:00:46] is.
I could get it right. I am that like, that's like, um, it's almost being like a influencer. It's like being shown respect for doing nothing.
Toni Lodge: [01:00:57] The classes also would be really short because how long is it going to take for 12 kids to show you one item and you tell them what they are and then see you next week.
Josh Janssen: [01:01:05] for the 50 bucks. I love that idea. I think that, that, like, it's a, um, even, uh, Uh, with my other podcasts and I'm actually a host of, uh, we were, we try it one either. I'm just a producer for you. Like I know that I know I'm in a little, if you haven't watched the YouTube video, Tony has put me in a little box and she's in a big box to make it very clear.
And it says one trick tone. Like it's very obvious. Yes, but I'm on the other show, the daily talk show, we do a YouTube do YouTube as well. And we get a lot of people learning English,
Toni Lodge: [01:01:43] which is very
Josh Janssen: [01:01:44] cool. Yeah. And so maybe this could happen with this as well.
Toni Lodge: [01:01:49] Oh, that would be cool actually, except people would just learn how to swear and asked for chocolate.
Um, do you think that you could live a broad like overseas? Um, Like, well, I guess at all, or do you think that you could do it like in a non-English speaking country?
Josh Janssen: [01:02:08] Yes. I would love to live somewhere else, uh, in a non English speaking country that hard where if you could live anywhere in the world, where would you live?
Toni Lodge: [01:02:21] Um, This is such a hard question to answer because I there's so many places I'd love to live like, um, tops. And I sat down, this is probably two years ago now and we wrote like a list of non-negotiables. So it's like all the things that we wanted to achieve. In our life. Yeah. It was like really nice to kind of sit down and be like, what's something that like, you don't want to leave without doing.
Um, and for, for both of us, both of us had, um, living abroad was like, uh, a non-negotiable. Um, so both of us like, yeah, like both for both of us, it's like something we have to do before we like, before we die, I guess. Um, and when's that, I mean, it's, hopefully it's not tomorrow.
Josh Janssen: [01:03:07] Yeah, it'd be annoying.
Toni Lodge: [01:03:09] Yeah.
It's all very final. Isn't it? Um, but yeah, like it's just something both of us really, really want to do, but, um, we would happily, like, we would love to live in New Zealand. Um, I could live in Japan. I think I'd obviously have to learn a lot more Japanese, but, um, I'd love to live in England. Um, tubes, his family is all Irish, so I mean, Ireland would probably be quite cool.
Um, I could probably live in America except it's so fucked at the moment. So I would hope that it would kind of change up a little bit in that respect. Um, I would love to live in. No, that's not overseas. Well, I guess. Oh,
Josh Janssen: [01:03:51] okay. So you want to go overseas? Okay.
Toni Lodge: [01:03:54] Well, yeah. Abroad. Yeah.
Josh Janssen: [01:03:56] Abroad. Yeah, sure. That makes sense.
Toni Lodge: [01:03:58] Yeah. Um, but yeah, I w I would happily leave anywhere. I think as long as I could work, um, in whatever capacity that was, as long as I think it'll be, I'll
Josh Janssen: [01:04:09] enjoy Japan for you. I think that makes sense.
Toni Lodge: [01:04:12] Yeah, well, I mean, New Zealand kind of feels like another state, doesn't it? So it has like the excitement of moving to another country, but like the safety of like moving into state.
Well, cause for, for us at least, I mean, I don't know how many people kind of care or whatever, but, um, like when Toby and I first met at uni, both of us really wanted to live in Melbourne and I was like, God, that's just never going to happen. And now we've lived in three States together. So. You just never know, I guess.
Um, yeah. Yeah. I wanted to live here for so long and I love it. I absolutely love it. Um, but yeah, that's nice. Isn't it?
Josh Janssen: [01:04:54] Yeah. Well, um, maybe we should put that as a question. Yeah, I think we should put it as a question. You do the questions on Instagram. So if people go to one trick Tony show on Insta, maybe you could ask people where in the world would you live if you could live anywhere.
Toni Lodge: [01:05:11] that's a good one. That is a good one. Yeah, you're the producer. I'll figure it out, you know? Um, Anyway, thanks for listening to us. Talk for a whole hour. I know that Josh was a bit slow going in the beginning, but we got there in the end. I feel. Um, do you think you can follow us? Just
Josh Janssen: [01:05:30] got used to it?
Toni Lodge: [01:05:30] Not my, I feel like we, we got there.
We, I feel like, cause I was up here and you were here and I feel like we leveled out at the time. Yeah. Um, you can find us. Oh us on Instagram at one tiny show
Josh Janssen: [01:05:51] with Josh
Toni Lodge: [01:05:53] one trick Tosh. Um, one trick tiny show on Instagram at one trick pony show on Tik TOK. Um, Tony. It takes off. It's going quite well, actually.
Um, I haven't gone viral yet, but I mean, leave that to COVID.
Josh Janssen: [01:06:10] Well done. Can anyone help with that? What do you do to get go viral? I don't
Toni Lodge: [01:06:15] really know. I don't really understand it. Yeah. Okay. I feel like it's kind of like a luck of the draw. Do you know what I read a thing the other day though, that I didn't know that this was a thing.
How it worked, but apparently on Instagram, if people like save your posts, that's like the best thing. It's like a super like.
Josh Janssen: [01:06:33] Yup. Yup. I have heard that also carousels are good because a lot of swiping a lot of engagement.
Toni Lodge: [01:06:39] Yeah. So if you post like lots of photos in one thing. Yeah. So, um, if you're so inclined, please share our posts, share your story or save them.
Yeah. Cause apparently that's great. Um, uh, what else do we do? We've got a website. There's an email address. You can figure that out.
Josh Janssen: [01:06:59] Yeah. I, at one trip, tony.com one trick, tony.com. Yeah, we have done. Um, what about those reels? You know how like they do the pointing like three things or like five things to do to get a payroll raise and they're like pay rise and they like dance.
And then when the beat happens, they point and when they point the thing comes
Toni Lodge: [01:07:22] up, the text comes up. Yeah. What do you want me to
Josh Janssen: [01:07:29] say about the five things? What about, um, Five things you need to do before the what's at the Royal show,
Toni Lodge: [01:07:42] cramp your hair, get your nails done by the lines. Yeah. Yeah.
Josh Janssen: [01:07:47] And you do that and you can actually dress up in a Hawaiian shirt with it. Like
Toni Lodge: [01:07:51] the whole month. I feel like not many people would really understand. You could do one. You're doing a great job. Make sure you watch the
Josh Janssen: [01:08:01] YouTube of that. Yeah, I'm back.
Toni Lodge: [01:08:04] All right. Awesome. Okay. Well, thank you so much for listening. Um, I hope that everyone's doing really well wherever you are. Um, and love you. That's enough. I going to say, bye.

Toni Lodge: [01:08:20] Oh no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no. No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no. I just mean, I say love, you know?
Yeah. You say it all right. No, but I have to be the last person to talk. Okay.
Josh Janssen: [01:08:36] Sure. Sure. But then you said for me to say, bye.
Toni Lodge: [01:08:39] Yeah. I said for you to say bye. So that then I could come off that and say that'd be okay. Okay. Thanks everyone. All right. Thanks everyone. Bye
now. No, no, no. You say, bye. Bye. Love you.
