Mason Lauder: [00:02:32] know, where we're going with friends?
Toni Lodge: [00:02:36] I'm your only thing. You've got friends outside this podcast. I haven't approved of that.
So I'm not sure about that.
Mason Lauder: [00:02:45] Yeah, not, but we've got an early booking. So five 30.
Toni Lodge: [00:02:50] What are you going to wear? Uh, you're not going to get to your house from, you're not going to get to cotton from your house at five in half an hour.
Mason Lauder: [00:03:00] Yeah, no, we'll be, we'll be right.
Toni Lodge: [00:03:02] Terrific.
Mason Lauder: [00:03:03] Nana, uh, Google maps says it's about 15
Toni Lodge: [00:03:06] to 20 minutes.
Oh, I dunno about that.
I will pop from that weird conversation that we've just had, sorry, that your role. There for that. That was weird. Wasn't it? Something different going on? Um, I am pleased to report though that even though for the last few months I've really been pollinating. Um, today's the 1st of December. So the first day of summer, and I didn't really pollinate today.
Mason Lauder: [00:03:34] Really?
Toni Lodge: [00:03:35] Yeah. Cause it's not spring anymore jerk. And that's why,
Mason Lauder: [00:03:39] because it's humid,
Toni Lodge: [00:03:40] but normally that's worse.
Mason Lauder: [00:03:42] Really?
Toni Lodge: [00:03:43] Yeah. Tonight is like the fist day in months that I haven't needed to ate like six Tel fasts when I wake up, not cause I'm like a drug addict or anything, I'm just Nate them. Cause my nose gets runny.
And do you know that this year has not been a good year to have really bad?
Mason Lauder: [00:04:05] What's your faith in being inside?
Toni Lodge: [00:04:07] Yeah, but also because every time you sneeze or cough or have a runny nose, people are like, you've got the germs. Yeah. Did I tell you about the other week when I went and got my eyebrows done?
And ah, so I went and got my eyebrows done and I was sorry. It was before you. So like in Melbourne, you have to wear a mask all the time and it was before you could take your mask off to get that beauty stuff done. It was a couple of weeks ago, so it was still at really high alert. And I was laying there and she was like, waxing my eyebrows and how my mask on and put my eyes started watering, like, cause it hurt and my nose started running and I was laying there and this is really gross, but.
I had to want, when she left me for a couple of minutes for my tint, I, I had, Oh, this is really fucking gross. I had to blow my nose into my mask. Yeah, because my nose is running so much that it really like blocked me up. And I knew that she'd be like, why are you in LA live? So I had to get it out so that I didn't sound sick.
It was fucking disgusting. And I was not good. I wasn't going to tell that story because it's so gross. Um, but I D I'm not sick. Like it's, ah, it makes me sound really irresponsible. I haven't had COVID symptoms. I just, I get Haifa really, really bad every year. I know that that's what it is. And, um, I've been very, very safe, but I know that that's what it is.
And it was really foul. Do you think I have to not tell that story?
Mason Lauder: [00:05:45] Nah. That's okay. I mean, you got to do what you gotta do.
Toni Lodge: [00:05:47] It's like
Mason Lauder: [00:05:49] if your nose is like, I understand that like it's
Toni Lodge: [00:05:52] these things happen
Mason Lauder: [00:05:53] and no one's going to say it to when you've got a podcast podcast.
Toni Lodge: [00:05:59] Yeah. Maybe it's not very cold. I dunno.
There's no time to dwell on whether I should tell that fucking story or not, because you've got to go out for dinner. That's all, I've got time for. Everybody's.
Um, I, so for the Scattergories game today, um, I thought we could change things up a little bit. Okay. Um, so. Even the actual game of Scattergories, you're given a list of lack of bunch of things. So you roll the Scattergories die dice, which we do every week. And then we pick like a theme and you've got to list as many things as you can.
And however long you set the time for. Um, but I thought that I could actually do the list this week because we were kind of running out of themes. Okay, great. Um, so maybe I reckon we set the timer for a little bit.
Mason Lauder: [00:06:54] Okay. Yep.
Toni Lodge: [00:06:55] Like how long do we normally do 20 seconds?
Mason Lauder: [00:06:59] Yeah, we do. Yeah. 15 to 20. So last week we went 20 seconds,
Toni Lodge: [00:07:02] but we did it twice.
We forced everybody to listen to the game. Um, and actually a few people messaged me and said, I love this guy degrees guy. And I said, well great. Cause I don't think anybody else does. So I really appreciated those messages of support. Um, but I've just realized though that you can't read a list cause you don't have one.
Mason Lauder: [00:07:24] No, but if you go first, I can write the categories down or you can just, I know you can't tell me if you can't then you can tell me the categories, honey. That's okay. You can tell me the categories. That's not,
Toni Lodge: [00:07:37] uh,
Mason Lauder: [00:07:39] that's fine. Isn't it?
Toni Lodge: [00:07:40] Yeah, yeah, no, your letter. Yeah. Yeah. Okay. So there's like, there's 12 categories on here, but I reckon we just do.
Mason Lauder: [00:07:52] Okay.
Toni Lodge: [00:07:53] And see how far, and we'll do 20 seconds on the clock and see how far down we got.
Mason Lauder: [00:07:59] Okay. All right.
Toni Lodge: [00:08:00] Okay. So, okay. Hang on. So should I,
Mason Lauder: [00:08:05] I think you need to tell me the, um, should
Toni Lodge: [00:08:07] we just read the categories out? Okay. Okay. So category one, a boy's name number two, a city. Okay. Yep. Number three, things that are called number four, things you don't want in the house.
Mason Lauder: [00:08:27] Okay.
Toni Lodge: [00:08:28] Number five, a sports team. Number six insects and number seven things in a coffee bar. Yeah.
Mason Lauder: [00:08:41] Can I just clarify what is a coffee bar?
Toni Lodge: [00:08:43] Like a cafe.
Mason Lauder: [00:08:46] Okay.
Toni Lodge: [00:08:46] All right. I guess. Yeah. Um, so. Should we do it. We should have talked about this before, but this is way more fun for people to listen to. Don't worry.
I'm keeping an eye on the time. You'd have to leave yet. Okay. Grant. So should we do it, like you said, start the timer. I wrote a letter for myself and I say how far down the least side.
Mason Lauder: [00:09:09] Yeah. Right.
Toni Lodge: [00:09:10] Yep. Yep.
Mason Lauder: [00:09:11] Yep. So do you want me to go to 20, 20 seconds on the clock?
Toni Lodge: [00:09:15] That's not very long, is it?
Mason Lauder: [00:09:17] No, it's not.
It's not long at all.
Toni Lodge: [00:09:20] Let's do 30 seconds.
Mason Lauder: [00:09:22] 30 seconds.
Toni Lodge: [00:09:23] Okay. So I'm going to just like call them out or should I write them down or should we brought them down at the same time?
Mason Lauder: [00:09:34] Oh, okay. So when we're hanging out, so
Toni Lodge: [00:09:36] like you would in real Scattergories no, that's not very interesting because then no one will hear anything for a whole minute.
That's true. Yeah. Yeah. Okay. We need to think about what people can hear. Um,
Mason Lauder: [00:09:47] yeah, we don't normally,
Toni Lodge: [00:09:48] so maybe we don't worry about
Mason Lauder: [00:09:53] what I reckon you just go through with your seven and you just yell them out and I'll just, I'll check them off as you go.
Toni Lodge: [00:10:03] Yeah, and then you go and then I go, whoever gets further down the list
Mason Lauder: [00:10:08] wins all the quickest time.
Toni Lodge: [00:10:09] Okay. Well, yeah.
Mason Lauder: [00:10:12] You're not going to get 17. Yeah, no, you're not.
Toni Lodge: [00:10:15] No, just no way 20 minutes still. It's still not. Um, so should I write them right down my answers as well? Or just say them
Mason Lauder: [00:10:25] and not just say them. Okay.
Toni Lodge: [00:10:26] We'll we'll be able to remember.
Mason Lauder: [00:10:28] Yep. 30 seconds. 30 seconds. 30 seconds. Here we go.
Toni Lodge: [00:10:32] Or do we think that's too long?
Mason Lauder: [00:10:34] No, I think 30 is okay.
Toni Lodge: [00:10:35] Okay. All right.
Mason Lauder: [00:10:38] Ready? Yep.
Toni Lodge: [00:10:39] Okay. So I'm going to roll the dice from my letter. Oh. Would you like to go first?
Mason Lauder: [00:10:44] No, no, no, no. You go, sir.
Toni Lodge: [00:10:46] Okay. All right. So my letter is a ready. Yep. Oh, hang on. I'm going to have some water. Okay. Good idea. Even though I'm not pollinating, I feel like it's the right thing to do.
Mason Lauder: [00:11:01] Like tubes this water bottle.
Toni Lodge: [00:11:05] I was so thirsty. Sorry, everyone. I was just a slate before we started recording this. So, um, you just, you know, when you wake up and it makes you built, like. Overnight. You just get so fucking thirsty. Am I the only person like that? Oh, it's the time. Oh, so you've got to grab, sorry. I'll just go fuck myself.
Tell you the story next week. Don't worry about it. Sorry everyone.
Mason Lauder: [00:11:33] No, no, no. What happened? What happened?
Toni Lodge: [00:11:34] No, no, no, not quick. Actually only set five seconds for the Scattergories game. Cause you've got a fucking base somewhere. Right. Okay. All right. Actually, I just think we stopped here. Stay tuned next week.
We'll play this game.
Tap your wrist at me like that again. I'll fucking kill you.
Okay. Ready? Yep. All right. Okay. My letter is. M, uh, boy's name, Matt, uh, city, um, uh, Manhattan. Would that be considered a city? Um, uh, okay.

Mason Lauder: [00:12:43] Jake, right? I reckon you've nailed it. And
Toni Lodge: [00:12:45] how long was on the timer?
Mason Lauder: [00:12:47] Well, I think my phone went to sleep. It's got that 32nd delay. IRA. IRA. No, I genuinely reckon though.
You got on 30 seconds. Cause when I last looked at it,
Toni Lodge: [00:12:56] okay. Let me say.
Mason Lauder: [00:12:58] I think it was, I think it was about 30 seconds, maybe
Toni Lodge: [00:13:02] just the game and we don't have time to go back and do it again.
The fucking same news special in Carlton poverty. All right. Um,
I don't remember any of the answers that I gave. So I don't know if they were all right.
Mason Lauder: [00:13:24] So you gave Matt Melbourne,
Toni Lodge: [00:13:26] Melbourne, Melbourne, embarrassingly. It took me quite a long time to get,
Mason Lauder: [00:13:33] I couldn't think of one, either
Toni Lodge: [00:13:34] things that are called market chill is what I said. Like, you know, like a cold milk, um, things shouldn't one in the house, men that are evil.
Mason Lauder: [00:13:42] The fear.

Apple frozen things. You don't want Apple
Toni Lodge: [00:15:07] frozen.
You don't want it in your house. Apple frozen. That terrifies me whenever I've got frozen Apple in my house. Yeah. Oh,
Mason Lauder: [00:15:20] that wasn't good. I nailed it on the first two, Aaron and Amsterdam
Toni Lodge: [00:15:25] strong out of the Gates that I just thought that that was going to be really good. And it wasn't cause you thinking about Dina.
Mason Lauder: [00:15:32] Things that are called Amsterdam Amsterdam in winter.
Toni Lodge: [00:15:36] No, I won't accept that because you can't. She's the same word for it.
Mason Lauder: [00:15:42] Yeah, no, that's fair. I mean, Melbourne storm. Yeah.
Toni Lodge: [00:15:46] Oh, Nah.
Mason Lauder: [00:15:51] Nah, that's fine. I was going to say in the Amsterdam rugby team, anyway, I don't know what it's called. The Amsterdam rugby football club.
Toni Lodge: [00:16:02] Play this game with my friend Aiden. So sometimes we play she's in Perth. Sometimes we play over FaceTime cause we always used to take Scattergories to the pub and play together. We'd order like a big plate of natural gas. And then we would sit there and eat. And buy Scattergories at the pub open anagrams, which is also a great game if you've ever played it.
Um, and she always like, Oh, she's so fucking annoying. She always does like describing words, which I don't give her the point, but Tobes, my fake producer boyfriend is like, you can give her the point. Like I remember a very specific example and the letter was S and it was like things. Things that are sticky or something.
And she wrote like sticky children and like, you know, like when they've been playing or eating and they'd get all sticky fuck off. That's not a good answer for that game anyway. Um, it just like, it still stays with me. Um, and every time we play together, she brings up the sticky children. Okay. I liked that new Scattergories game.
Mason Lauder: [00:17:03] I enjoyed that too.
Toni Lodge: [00:17:04] That was more fun than trying to just come up with a million names that start with us.
Mason Lauder: [00:17:08] Hmm. Yeah, it's a good exercise as well.
Toni Lodge: [00:17:10] Some more water.
Mason Lauder: [00:17:11] Okay. I didn't do too well though. Like just with the math, like two out of the seven is not a good, um,
Toni Lodge: [00:17:19] I feel like it's okay. I mean,
Mason Lauder: [00:17:21] you got seven out of seven,
Toni Lodge: [00:17:23] get seven out of seven.
I am good at stuff like that though. Last night we went and had dinner at one of the girls from work. Giant. We went to her house and she cooked and it was fucking awesome. She cooked, um, this lamb Ragu from, um, do you know Julia? Ostrow the chef or not personally. Oh, she's amazing. So she's, I think she's from Adelaide, her family's Maltese and she's married to a Japanese man.
And so her cooking is like,
Mason Lauder: [00:17:54] Fuck.
Toni Lodge: [00:17:55] Yeah. And her, the cookbook, um, that she made the Rigo from is called a year of simple family food. And if you have a chance to make the Rigo from that cookbook, like, let me tell you, it's absolutely fucked. So delicious. And she made that for dinner last night. Anyway, and then afterwards we played psych charades game.
And there was like seven of us. And cause I just, like I did just then I was like screaming at the top of my lungs because I just get so excited when we play games and I get super into it and Oh, and it's just, it's not very good because it makes me feel really bad that I'm so aggressive. But I just, when I get quick, I get louder.
Mason Lauder: [00:18:38] Like yeah, you're on a roll.
Toni Lodge: [00:18:39] Yeah. So as soon as I like get into something, I just can't stop screaming.
yeah, so like playing charades, et cetera, I'm just loud. Okay. We're getting a new couch
Mason Lauder: [00:19:12] really. That's exciting.
Toni Lodge: [00:19:14] It is exciting.
Mason Lauder: [00:19:15] Which brand do you know?
Toni Lodge: [00:19:17] Oh, it's it's from focus on furniture.
Mason Lauder: [00:19:21] Okay, great.
Toni Lodge: [00:19:22] Yeah. I can tell you the exact thing. Um, focus on just Googling it. I think it's called.
Mason Lauder: [00:19:33] What's the, what's the vibe.
Is that like a lightish color one or,
Toni Lodge: [00:19:36] um, it's like, uh, um, uh, I don't know how to describe it. Um, hang on, I'll send you the link. Um, I'm going to put it into our little note thing. I've just put it in your section. Okay, great. Thank you. Um, it's from focus on furniture. It's called the Sutton five seat chase.
It's it's called charcoal, but it's a bit lighter than that actually.
Mason Lauder: [00:20:05] Yeah, that's nice.
Toni Lodge: [00:20:06] It is nice. Isn't it? That's really nice. Yeah. I'm really excited for it to come. It's coming on Thursday. Oh, when this podcast is out, I'll have a new couch.
Mason Lauder: [00:20:14] Oh, that's exciting. It's a little wrap around like, I feel like legs out.
Toni Lodge: [00:20:19] yeah. Yeah. It is good for legs out. Yeah. We'd like to have a look at it. It's called the Sutton FiveStreet chase. Um, I am really excited about it. We got our couch. Um, when we first moved to Sydney and we got it from Ikea and we just really, really needed something. And that was like the only one that we could get that wasn't super expensive.
Um, or like a second hand, like all weird stained couch, um,
Mason Lauder: [00:20:45] catches second hand.
Toni Lodge: [00:20:47] Okay. Well,
Mason Lauder: [00:20:47] well, wait, let's say like real good.
Toni Lodge: [00:20:50] Yeah. I like it way. So we're getting rid of our couch, our current, so that couch that we got like three years ago, it's like an Ikea one and it's pretty, it's like, it's really good.
Like, it looks really good, but it's just not that comfortable to like sit on all the time. Sure. You know what I mean? Like, um, and especially through COVID we were like sitting on the couch a lot and I was like, this is just not good. Um, like it's served us really well, but anyway, we're gonna, um, give it away for free instead of selling it, because I feel guilty about selling a couch that has like food on it and like, um, One day I was fight tanning and I asked Tobes to help me, my fake producer boyfriend, he, and he shook the can while it was open, um, and Sprite, black, the fake tan on the back of the couch.
And I couldn't get it out. I didn't try, but it's like light gray. So, um, yeah, there's just like a bit of fake town on the back of it. There's like, A few Curry stains from eating dinner on the couch. Um, like chili con con stains from having like burritos and like trying to spoon the mints on to. Like taco shell on dropping on the couch.
A lot of that. Um, yeah, it does happen, but it's happened to us a lot. It's a lot of food on there. Not that not none of the stains are like incriminating. It's just that they're all there and we could clean it, but it's just not that comfy. But anyway, we're giving it to a lovely family, a lovely man reached out and he's going to take it, which is.
Mason Lauder: [00:22:33] Oh, great. Especially if they come and do all of it, like, you're just,
Toni Lodge: [00:22:36] well, that's why I said I was like, come and take it for free, but you've got to get it out of our apartment and take it the fuck away from my house. Because you know, like all those places, like, um, 1-800-GOT-JUNK and stuff like those services, like they come to your house and they take the rubbish away and they like dispose of it thoughtfully or whatever.
In a normal circumstance, I would call like Vinnies or like an op shop, whatever. But in Melbourne you can't donate at the moment. It's still, still, yeah. I had a look on all their websites and they're all just really full up at the moment
Mason Lauder: [00:23:13] I could imagine.
Toni Lodge: [00:23:14] Yeah. Cause like over COVID I guess like everybody was cleaning out the house and like wanted to fuck shit off.
Mason Lauder: [00:23:21] Makes sense.
Toni Lodge: [00:23:22] Yeah. Um, but yes, I'm really excited about the new lounge. Um, Celica old person thing to be excited about,
Mason Lauder: [00:23:32] not in things. So I think that's exciting. New couch.
Toni Lodge: [00:23:35] Yeah. And it's like an investment, like it's, you know, it's something that we're going to have forever. Well, we fucking better
Mason Lauder: [00:23:44] to spill.
Toni Lodge: [00:23:45] Yeah. I'm going to spill food on there though. That's the thing.
I am going to spill a lot of food on there, I suppose. Oh, no, um,
feeling really under pressure because I know that you are looking at the time. Okay. How long have we been going for so far? Got 23 minutes. It's been the longest 23 minutes of your life. Just want to go home. You are at home. We're not recording together anyway. Um, so, Oh, what are you? Call scissors, paper, rock
Mason Lauder: [00:24:30] paper, scissors, rock.
Toni Lodge: [00:24:33] So. The other day. So at, um, Jason PJ, where I work my real job, not this job because it doesn't pay me any money. Um, and I have to buy new couches, et cetera, et cetera, carry over my clothes and my couch and all that. Um, And we were in the podcast for Jason PJ. We're talking about, um, scissors, paper rock, and I've always called it scissors, paper rock, and someone commented and said, it's not fucking scissors, paper, rock it's rock, paper, scissors.
And then you just said, it's paper scissors, rock.
Mason Lauder: [00:25:04] Yeah, pay purses is rough.
Toni Lodge: [00:25:08] No, see I go Caesar's paper rock, but you know what? The other, I'm glad that you do it like that though, because do you know that some people just go like scissors, paper, rock.
Mason Lauder: [00:25:20] Yeah, no, you need the rock.
Toni Lodge: [00:25:24] Yeah, yeah, yeah, no, I agree. But don't do that.
Or they just go like one, two, three, no, it's not enough. No.
I also had to explain about how like a three-way scissors paper rock is too hard because if one person does paper, one person does scissors. One person does rock. Um, Everybody can bait everyone
Mason Lauder: [00:25:51] cancels everyone out.
Toni Lodge: [00:25:52] Yeah, it does. Yeah. Yeah.
Okay, cool. Um, Oh my God, you mind me? So I never
Mason Lauder: [00:26:05] threw topics.
Toni Lodge: [00:26:07] God, I'm just bringing up things that you just like. Okay, well, this is as good as my dinner is going to be. Um, well, last week we, we asked for your questions, um, and I put up a little story on Instagram. Um, because last time we did this, it was really fun and it felt like, um, you guys.
As in our friends that aren't here, not the two of us. Um, we'll like being part of the shadow. It really, really fun. So, um, we asked for some more questions. Um, let me open them. Oh, are you asking me the questions or am I reading them?
Mason Lauder: [00:26:47] I can ask. I can ask you them if you want.
Toni Lodge: [00:26:49] Yeah. If you would like to be involved or if you feel like you've got to go, then I'll just read them off.
Mason Lauder: [00:26:56] No, I can read them. I'll read them. I, I, you know what else I saw on Instagram, which is very exciting.
Toni Lodge: [00:27:02] Yes.
Mason Lauder: [00:27:03] You've now got a hold of your outdoor butter.
Toni Lodge: [00:27:06] Yeah. Yeah, that's awesome. Oh my God. I just hit my glasses on my microphone. I got so excited about the yeah, it is. And anybody that remembers that cares about the show, the way that they should, um, it is the Le crew say bought a dish in Marangu that I wanted.
That's a very generous gift from two very good friends. Uh, very excited. And today I like had some, had some toast for lunch and I just scraped into my butter and it was, it was so warm. Well, no, it wasn't warm. It was room temperature and Oh, It just looks so good on the benches are, makes me look so rich and fancy.
Cause it's like a stoneware butter dish. I would recommend the butter dish hands down. It is so fucking good.
Mason Lauder: [00:27:55] It's
Toni Lodge: [00:27:55] changed my life and
Mason Lauder: [00:27:57] changed your life.
Toni Lodge: [00:27:59] Checkout to a Bata has changed my life and I've had the butter hashtag outdoors since we talked about this, but it was just on the bench. Yeah. But now it's in a dish.
Mason Lauder: [00:28:12] Yeah, the dishes a little bit more hygienic, isn't it?
Toni Lodge: [00:28:15] I think as well, apparently that, um, this is the extensive research I've done into hashtag outdoor butter. That if you've got an opaque dish, like the Le krusei one, so opaque as in, you can't see through it, um, it, your butter lasts way longer because if you've got like a glass dish, like sunlight and like actual light light turns your butter rants at faster.
Oh, that would make sense. Yeah. I don't think that's fake information. I read that a few places.
Mason Lauder: [00:28:46] It sounds legit. Like it feels, it feels like it makes sense.
Toni Lodge: [00:28:49] Yeah. Apparently like the, that like actual lot, like just like fucks it up. So yeah.
Mason Lauder: [00:28:54] We'll keep out of direct sunlight. They always say that about, you know, keeping stuff.
Toni Lodge: [00:28:58] So I do say that, and it sounds like a weird thing that you would just say, but apparently it's real.
The restaurant that you're going to tonight. I bet you, their butter is cold. Indoor
Mason Lauder: [00:29:12] butter.
Toni Lodge: [00:29:13] Yeah.
Mason Lauder: [00:29:14] Not good. Not good. Get rid of it.
Toni Lodge: [00:29:17] Fuck it off. Um, so how have you split these questions up into like, like some quicker ones and then somewhat lengthy sexy ones?
Mason Lauder: [00:29:26] Yeah. Yeah. So the, so there are a couple different.
Uh, I guess sort of categories people wrote in about, and so, like there are some longer ones where you could sort of, you know, have a bit more of a lengthy answer and then the rapid fire
Toni Lodge: [00:29:41] ones. Oh, hang on. I've just disconnected from you. I just got so sick of hearing about you going out for dinner that I thought I would just turn my camera off.
Um, hang on, everyone
Mason Lauder: [00:29:55] still doesn't want to turn on, does
Toni Lodge: [00:29:56] it? I know. Is a story of my fucking life,
dude, do, do, do, do do. It's not going to fucking turn back on.
This is really great.
And you know how last time this happened, we came up with that trick.
Mason Lauder: [00:30:22] Yeah, I know. It's not, yeah. It's not working. You can flip over to yeah, that's good.
Toni Lodge: [00:30:26] Oh, Oh no. It's just not going to work when you working little things. Oh, sorry. That's so annoying.
Mason Lauder: [00:30:38] Do, do you want to reconnect it?
Toni Lodge: [00:30:40] No. I'm happy to just have to fucking turn my whole thing up, Jimmy, to just change it to the other one.
Mason Lauder: [00:30:47] Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. That's perfect.
Toni Lodge: [00:30:51] Perfect. And look as good. Does that
Mason Lauder: [00:30:52] that's okay.
Toni Lodge: [00:30:57] Hang on. Let me move it.
Oh, we going to cut this out or leave it in
Mason Lauder: [00:31:05] naturally.
Toni Lodge: [00:31:06] How's that?
Mason Lauder: [00:31:07] That's really great.
Toni Lodge: [00:31:10] Uh, so if everybody that can't say, which is everybody, except for patient
Mason Lauder: [00:31:16] than ever, I can say.
Toni Lodge: [00:31:18] Yeah. Yeah, me just like chat, moving my camera over and like fucking around with it. Um, the taught, this is actually really sweet, so I don't have a web.
So this computer that I use for the podcast is like my, like, Work from home computer. It's like my big computer. So I don't have a webcam here because I've never needed one before. And I bought this app on my phone that was like $16 and it never fucking works. And it's like, so that you can use your phone as a webcam.
Um, and I got really angry with it, disconnected all the time. Like that just happened. So, um, my fake producer, boyfriend Tobes, he bought me a webcam. And it's this one, uh, uh, that we're using now. And it's not as, it's not as good as my phone, but it is good. I think I can flip it the other way. Cause I'm really throwing myself off that I'm like mirrored now.
Mason Lauder: [00:32:14] Yeah.
Toni Lodge: [00:32:15] Hang on. Let me see. This is a real live experiment. Okay. Video. Um, Oh, is that better?
Mason Lauder: [00:32:25] No.
Toni Lodge: [00:32:26] I'm married now.
Mason Lauder: [00:32:28] None on not for me.
Toni Lodge: [00:32:30] Oh, I'm married for me. Oh
Mason Lauder: [00:32:31] my God. No, no, no. He got, I know how you can mirror. This is perfect. Okay. So go into zoom preference.
Toni Lodge: [00:32:39] Yeah. That's where I am in, in video.
Mason Lauder: [00:32:43] And you hit mirror.
Toni Lodge: [00:32:44] Yeah. I've, that's what I've done. And it's not cut if it's not coming out for you, but it's coming up to me.
Mason Lauder: [00:32:48] It's not, no, it's not doing it for me. I'll just mirror mind. Did that change for you?
Toni Lodge: [00:32:53] No.
Mason Lauder: [00:32:54] No. Okay.
Toni Lodge: [00:32:55] Also, it just changes for you like the person changing it.
Mason Lauder: [00:33:00] Yeah, well, that's that's okay.
Toni Lodge: [00:33:06] Let me move it down a bit. And I just like having a webcam, like a separate webcam makes me feel like I'm like going to show black boys my boobs on MSN or something like it's like a. You didn't do that. Cool. Okay.
Mason Lauder: [00:33:24] Have to,
Toni Lodge: [00:33:25] Oh, you just shown people, your boobs with the inbuilt camera. Okay.
Oh, that's a really insight. Okay. Okay. Should we do the quick questions first or
Mason Lauder: [00:33:43] yeah. Yeah. Do you want to leave with the long lens? It's up to you,
Toni Lodge: [00:33:48] whatever ones you think you're going to sound better at the beginning of that. Okay. All right. You know, we've just eaten up the heaps of time, me trying to get my kids.
Mason Lauder: [00:34:02] Okay. Now I reckon we start with the longer ones.
Toni Lodge: [00:34:04] Oh, okay.
Mason Lauder: [00:34:06] Okay. Great. Well, the first one's from sky
Toni Lodge: [00:34:08] high sky,
Mason Lauder: [00:34:09] what's the best thing that's happened to you during 2020?
Toni Lodge: [00:34:13] Oh, um, probably the podcast
Mason Lauder: [00:34:20] doing rapid-fire.
Toni Lodge: [00:34:25] Nah, none of that. Um, probably the podcast. I mean, it's been like a really weird year because it's really hard to believe that it's December now. Like so hard to believe that it's December now. Um, I was saying this to somebody else, the other daylight, if you told me that it was March right now, I'd be like, yeah.
Okay. I would just not even question it. Um, but yeah, but the podcast has been amazing. Like it's been 18 weeks that we've been doing this now and that's just fucked. Yeah, but I mean, in terms of like great stuff, I mean, Tom's finished uni. That was really exciting. Um, the Bata dish obviously is up there. Um,
yeah, I think it would be the podcast. Is that a really boring, does that sound like a really like cliched answer? Cause it's actually true.
Mason Lauder: [00:35:24] That's a thing. That's a great answer.
Toni Lodge: [00:35:26] What do you think the best thing that's happened to you in 2020?
Mason Lauder: [00:35:31] Um, no, it has, has to be grudge.
Toni Lodge: [00:35:44] No, that's fine. I'm really seeing where your allegiances lie today, because you said you've got to leave early to go out with, for dinner, with stupid grace. And now you think that stupid grace is the best thing that's happened to this year. So that's fine. That's great. Call me Cindy LOPA. Cause I'm saying your true colors.
That's fine. Okay. Great.
No. That's very sweet. That's very sweet. I have been going out this year. Yeah. Oh yeah, because she came over a lot during COVID.
Mason Lauder: [00:36:21] Yeah. Only this year.
Toni Lodge: [00:36:26] Oh, that's really sweet. Actually. I know. It just feels, I think because like the whole time I've known you, you think going out with grace, so it feels like I've known you for longer than a year, so it doesn't feel like, yeah.
Anyway, People are not going to enjoy the answers to the questions. Do you think
Mason Lauder: [00:36:55] they good answers?
Toni Lodge: [00:36:56] Oh, I don't think it is time. You weren't even sure about your own answer. No.
Yeah. Yeah, definitely. The podcasts, definitely the podcast. What were you going to say? Should we
I, I don't have anything else organized. So these needs, these need to go for agents. I need some water. I'll waste some time drinking some water.
Mason Lauder: [00:37:31] Try this about
Toni Lodge: [00:37:38] Thank God. Thank God. Okay, next question. How about I just drink water for 15 seconds between all the questions. Okay.
Mason Lauder: [00:37:47] Okay. Um, Jordan says, why did you get into radio?
Toni Lodge: [00:37:53] Oh, my actual real job. Um, it was kind of by accident. I've talked about, um, like how I got into radio, um, a bit on one of the earlier podcasts.
Um, but for anybody that hasn't listened that far back, or can't be fucked or you're new here, I'll save you the trip. Um, so I was studying. Um, sound engineering at uni at WAAPA in WIA in Perth. Um, And I actually, when I started at uni, I wanted to, um, start my own record label. Like that's what I really, really wanted to do.
And then as I was going through uni, I wanted to become an audiologist, which is like an ear doctor, um, because my nephew has had heaps of hearing problems. And when I was growing up, my dad was pretty deaf as well. And like, it just really, really interests me. Um, so. I, yeah, it was like super into that for a while and then got put forward for a radio job by one of my lecturers, um, that I got along with really well.
And, um, he, yeah, he put me through, put me forward for a job in radio and I got it. And then I ended up yeah. Moving away from my first radio job in Bumbry and, um, yeah, that's a lot. The rest is kind of history that was. In 2015, I think so yellow fuck. Five years ago,
Mason Lauder: [00:39:18] far out. Yeah.
Toni Lodge: [00:39:20] It must've been 2015. Yeah.
Cause it was just after I turned 21. Yeah. Right. Anyway, um, yeah, so a while ago now it doesn't feel like that long. Um, but five years is kind of like a long time to say that you've worked in one industry. Oh, that's quite cool. What a little speed hump. I mean, that's nothing because Jay, so I work with, um, I think he's been in radio flat 50 years or something, which has really, um, uh, yeah, no, so it wasn't really like, I.
There's a lot of people that I've worked with and that I work with now who are like so passionate about radio. And it's funny, cause I never like had that as a key to anything now that I work in it. Like, I really love it, but it's cool. Cause there's so many people that just like love radio Muslim life itself.
Like it's really cool when you work with people that are super passionate about what they do.
Mason Lauder: [00:40:15] Yeah, for sure. Definitely.
Toni Lodge: [00:40:16] How did Mason, how did you get into radio? It doesn't apply. Okay. Next question. Oh, sorry. Hang on.
I'm going to run out of water.
Mason Lauder: [00:40:34] Okay.
Toni Lodge: [00:40:34] Thank you, Gordon Gordon. Thank you for that question. Um, that Jordan question FARC. Thank you for that question, Jordan. Why is it a bit more time?
That was a real cackle. Sorry about that.
Mason Lauder: [00:40:58] What were you like at school?
Toni Lodge: [00:41:00] Oh, I was such a loser. Um, I didn't really have many friends until I was in like, like year, right. Cause I was just like chubby dork and no one really wanted to be my friend. Um, but then when I got older and realized that just because I wasn't hot didn't mean that I wasn't funny and realized that I was funny.
Then I was like, I was probably a bit of a jokester and a bit boisterous, like I am now. Um, but yeah, it took me like a really long, like I was. A bit more popular when I was in like year 11 and 12. But yeah, before that I was not very popular. Like I had like good friends and stuff, but yeah, it wasn't, wasn't very popular.
Um, and I D there was definitely stages when I was at school where like, I fucking hated it and I definitely don't miss it because I like love my life now. Um, and I. Graduated school 10 years ago, actually this year. So yeah, I really don't miss it. Um, but.
I don't know. I always feel really bad, like bagging out high school. Cause you learn a lot and not just like in terms of school, but like about yourself and all of that shit, that lame stuff. And also that if anybody was listening right now, who was still at school, I would hate to be like, ah, score shit.
Because like it's really important. And I think like that people should go and like by law you have to. Um, but, uh, but yeah, no, it was. It was not great for me as like a chubby funny girl. I think that that really sucks. Um, but yeah, I guess I was just, yeah, I was a bit of a dork, but then I think I got cool.
Cause I got funny, uh, everybody that I went to high school, that's the seem to, this is like, you know,
I've got some old water. Why is the water? What were you like at school? Actually, it was just last week. Wasn't it?
Mason Lauder: [00:43:23] Last year? Nah, definitely last week. I, I, I actually. I think, yeah, it is like reflecting on it. You realize like, it was well for me personally, I realized it was actually, you had all these learnings and you don't realize it until you're out of school
Toni Lodge: [00:43:39] a hundred percent.
Mason Lauder: [00:43:41] But it's, I, I was, I was lucky I had a real close friendship group and it wasn't. Like, yeah, it wasn't like we was, we weren't that popular like cool group or whatever, but it was like, I had like
Toni Lodge: [00:43:55] really good mates.
Mason Lauder: [00:43:56] Yeah. I just had, yeah, I had really, really good friends and just like, especially high school, like the last couple of years, like.
Being able to just like, yeah. Get chatty with like teachers and all that sort of thing meant that it made it a bit more enjoyable.
Toni Lodge: [00:44:11] Yeah. I see. I, I think I was kind of like you, like when I moved, so I moved to a different school. You need 10. And when I first moved, I had a bit of a rough time just because I was like, really, like, I was such an anxious kid and, um, And just like, when you move to a new school is just like so many, they had all known each other for so long.
Um, cause most of them went to primary school and high school together. So they'd known each other for fucking 10 years and I was brand new, so I felt really left out. But yeah, I definitely, because I did music and stuff and you know, when you do those like smaller classes in, um, like you 10, 11 and 12, the classes are a bit smaller and yet you get to know the teachers and stuff.
So it kind of like. You're you're more with people that actually want to do the stuff that you want to do, and the people in your class like actually want to be there. So that makes it a bit easier. But I don't know. You're pretty like hot and sporty. I just would have thought that like, score would have been like a real breeze.
Mason Lauder: [00:45:10] Yeah. It, yeah, it wasn't a way. I mean, I never, like I did, I did, I didn't, I stopped sport in like year 10 to get in. I didn't actually do like sport as a subject. I was more just like it, but it was like, it was great. Cause I had, like, I had like a couple of nights and I tell you, and so, and the teacher was really, really good.
So we just like ended up, you know, having fun, having fun and just, you know, chatting to the teacher instead of actually. Doing a bunch of stuff.
Toni Lodge: [00:45:34] That's quite cool. That is quite nerdy though. And that was kind of my experience as well. Like yeah, I was popular. Like people liked me, but I wasn't cool. You know what I mean?
You know what I like, you know, the difference, like every, like I knew everybody and everybody knew who I was, I guess I wasn't popular.
Mason Lauder: [00:45:52] It's such a weird the thing though. Cause then, cause like you have the, you know, the popular group of people, but then they're just like, Like, like, especially like the school that I went to, like, there was just like a group of guys that would just like, just ratty and just like, just like, you know, like the popular, but they're just like a bit like tosses, like the easiest.
And then, and then you, like, I think I probably had. That sort of realization in like year 11 midway through year 11, just being like, well, it's definitely not cool,
Toni Lodge: [00:46:24] but also I think that, yeah, you try, you think like, I wish I was like that. And then you're like, actually I don't really want to be friends with people like that.
And like, you know, there's always a group. Yeah. Like real wine cause like that, then there's always groups of like,
People that just get off on being intimidating, like actual bullies. And it's just like, you know, there was people like that would sometimes catch my bus that when I saw them lined up, I'd be like, Oh my God, like, I can't sit anywhere near them. Or, you know, you know, like it, it's just like really shitty that there's people that are like that.
And there are people that are like that when you're an adult as well. You think that that's just people. School when they're at school, but it's not like there's actually fucking people that are like that. Um, which is awful, but, Oh my God, I actually read this fucking story today and I must've just been feeling really emotional and it was on like kid's spot.
You know, that website on Facebook, that website on Facebook. Excuse me. How old am I? That page on Facebook. And like, mum's ask for advice, moms and dads, like ask for advice on kids. Like they say things like, um, um, they send them in anonymously and it's like, Oh, um, all of my daughters. My friends are getting phones, but we don't want it to have a phone.
What should we do? And like, my daughter really wants a phone or my son really wants to watch Ben 10 and I don't want him to watch her. What should I do? You know, she liked that and there was one today and it was that, um, this little boy, it was his fifth birthday and, um, all of the kids got invited to his birthday party and none of them went.
And he was five and the mum like organized this big black 10 pin bowling party. Yeah.
Mason Lauder: [00:48:09] But that's on the parents because it's the five-year-olds showing up. Like that's the parents just like,
Toni Lodge: [00:48:14] I know, but like why would the whole class like not have gone? Isn't that sounds like a conspiracy to me.
Mason Lauder: [00:48:20] Yeah. I mean, I feel like.
When you're five, like you're fired. I feel, I feel like you don't even care who the person is. You're just fired up to go 10 pin bowling.
Toni Lodge: [00:48:28] Yeah. Yeah. Literally. And just like eat heaps of cake and just like, look at, you know, people outside of your house. Like, it's really exciting to like that they parties when you're a kid.
Um, but anyway, that's like not necessarily mean that they'll bully is that just. Really helps hit me. Um, but yeah, sorry. Got a bit off track there, but yeah, to answer your question, I was a bit of a nerd, but I wasn't super smart, but I was just a bit of a loser. I played a lot of music. I was the choir captain.
I was house captain, like. A bit of a loser, but I was, it was fine. God, there's just nothing that ruins your straight cried luck asking someone what that will look like. I feel like I'm really have really taken the wind out of my own sales by thinking about fucking lime. I was anyway. Did you go to your bowl?
Uh, like your prom or your whatever it's called.
Mason Lauder: [00:49:24] Yeah. What did we,
Toni Lodge: [00:49:25] what was it called? Like formal,
Mason Lauder: [00:49:27] formal, formal. Uh, I went to the year 12 one. I didn't go to the year 11 one. Yeah, the slightly disappointing the food was, the food was better apparently at the year 11 than the 12.
Toni Lodge: [00:49:41] Yeah, no wonder you weren't popular.
Okay. I don't think that's what you're supposed to care about when you 15. Oh, shockingly the food. Apparently the cuisine was. Yeah.
Mason Lauder: [00:49:50] Yeah. I mean, I didn't even go to the year 11. I just heard it, you know,
Toni Lodge: [00:49:57] chatter from your teacher, friends.
Mason Lauder: [00:50:04] Yeah.
Toni Lodge: [00:50:08] Sorry, it's a drinking game. How can you get.
Mason Lauder: [00:50:17] Okay. Daniel asked, do you have any holiday plans?
Toni Lodge: [00:50:21] Um, no. No. Sorry. That's not really a long question answer. Um, no, I don't think so. I think, um, so actually today, Uh, we found out that, um, the West Australian borders, uh, going to be opening next week, uh, which is, uh, where all my family is in, in Perth. Well, actually my sister's just recently moved to Darwin with her husband and their two children, but.
Um, yeah, all my, all my friends are in our NWA. Um, so it's definitely like a thought that crossed our minds, but the flight's really expensive, so we don't really show it. We'll do, but yeah, we might hit over there, but I also just feel like after this really long year, I just really need a break and I just want to kind of enjoy sitting at home and going to the beach and stuff like that.
Mason Lauder: [00:51:15] Yeah, for sure.
Toni Lodge: [00:51:15] Um, but cause you're, you're going to WIA, aren't you, um, pacing to meet late Grace's family and stuff.
Mason Lauder: [00:51:21] Yeah. W we're going two days after the border opens,
Toni Lodge: [00:51:25] have you already booked your flights and stuff?
Mason Lauder: [00:51:26] Yeah, we, we booked them as soon as we booked them, as soon as they announced that, um, that sort of roadmap to bringing down the border and yeah.
And it, and it just two days before. Yeah, very lucky. Cause I think, um, we saw someone who had to push their flights back one day and it was like over a couple of days or whatever to make it. And it was like, you know, 1500 bucks. Just
Toni Lodge: [00:51:50] ridiculous. Should I looked at today where like a thousand dollars return?
Um, from Perth, from Melbourne to Perth and back, um, which is crazy. But, um, I think that I'll put some more flights on, but I hope that like, it sucks as well because everybody thinking about holiday plans at the moment that would normally, um, go home wherever home may be. I know that there's a lot of, um, New Zealand.
Uh, New Zealand is that listened to this and lack if you're in Australia, you might not be able to get home, or if your family's in Australia, you might not be able to get back or whatever, which really sucks. It's going to be like a really different kind of Christmas for lots of people, which is really shitty.
But, um, I think that will basically like my whole family has tubes. So as long as we're together, I don't really care what we are as long as we get to hang out. And if we're with family or if we're with friends that doesn't, I don't really care. As long as we're together. Which is just lovely.
Mason Lauder: [00:52:45] That's sweet.
Toni Lodge: [00:52:47] Um, but yeah, like, I dunno, I've just, I've lived away from home for so fucking long now. Like yeah, five years the whole time I've been in radio. So as long as he and I are together, I really, I really just, that's the most important thing to me. So. Is so sweet.
Mason Lauder: [00:53:04] This is so cute. Isn't it
Toni Lodge: [00:53:05] such a good person? Oh my God.
We've only got 20 minutes before you've got to go. So hurry up.
Mason Lauder: [00:53:10] Okay. No water this time. Okay. Should I jump onto the other side?
Toni Lodge: [00:53:14] Are there any good, longer questions?
Mason Lauder: [00:53:16] Uh, yeah. Okay. I mean,
Toni Lodge: [00:53:18] just one more, one more good one
Mason Lauder: [00:53:20] good one. Okay. Um, okay. Kersey says, how did you inpatient mate.
Toni Lodge: [00:53:27] Oh, um, well, yeah, it's not a very good one.
Well, it's not a very interesting story. Um, well there, so you work on multiple podcasts with the podcast collaborators. Um, and I was on an episode of the daily talk show, which you can listen to actually, um, it came out in like June this year, I think,
Mason Lauder: [00:53:50] in between the two.
Toni Lodge: [00:53:52] Yeah. I'm pretty sure it was like June, um, June, sometime.
Um, but you can listen to that. It was actually, it was really fun. It's like an hour and a half of just like me talking about myself, which is amazing. Um, you can listen to that here as well. Um, um, and that, like, we met briefly before that, but then the podcast collaborators asked if I'd be interested in starting a podcast with them.
And then I said, Oh yeah, who would I be doing it with? And then pay some as the. The unlucky one to work on this podcast. Um, but yeah, that's kind of how I met. It's like not a very interesting story. Um, but I feel like we've like gotten to know each other a lot in the last like six months.
Mason Lauder: [00:54:32] Yeah. It's been great.
Toni Lodge: [00:54:34] It's been really nice. And this has all been over zoom as well. Like the, the blossoming of our relationship has all been over zoom, which, you know, you mean girlfriend
Mason Lauder: [00:54:49] as
Toni Lodge: [00:54:49] well through the, through the podcast. So. Maybe one day I'll be flying over from WUA and running into your arms at the airport.
And you'll say, Tony is the best thing about my 2021 we'll say anyway. Would you rather,
Mason Lauder: [00:55:07] okay. Would you rather have the ability to go forward 30 seconds once a day or rewind 30 seconds once a day?
Toni Lodge: [00:55:16] Oh,
That's hard. I think, Oh, I say I don't want to go back because if I went back then I would never learn anything, but I wouldn't want to go forward because I wouldn't want to miss out on anything. It is only 30 seconds after all.
Once a day,
Mason Lauder: [00:55:48] once a day. Yeah. Back
Toni Lodge: [00:55:49] I'll say, Oh, um,
I'll say back.
Mason Lauder: [00:55:59] All right. Going back.
Toni Lodge: [00:56:00] What would you rather do back as well?
Mason Lauder: [00:56:02] Well, yeah, I mean, there's sort of two ways. Like you can take it as like regret, you can go back and then change something, but then you could also find the Tesla results, then go back and win.
Toni Lodge: [00:56:14] Um, but don't, they close like 40 minutes before they,
Mason Lauder: [00:56:17] okay.
Well that's a problem. Isn't it writing in 30 seconds as well?
Toni Lodge: [00:56:22] Yeah. I like where you are, like where your head's up, but, um,
Mason Lauder: [00:56:27] yeah. Yeah.
Toni Lodge: [00:56:30] 30 seconds would be good. Like if you got into like a, let's say you like ran into someone in the back of their car or something, you could go back 30 seconds and like, make that not happen.
That'd be handy.
Mason Lauder: [00:56:40] Oh yeah. That's a good point.
Toni Lodge: [00:56:41] You know, like little things that would be good or like,
Mason Lauder: [00:56:48] I mean, what would you do with going forward 30 seconds? Well, I
Toni Lodge: [00:56:51] get like skip a little bit of a meeting or like, yeah, yeah. You know, like 30 seconds. It's just not really enough time. I'll say back. Cause I don't want to miss anything.
Mason Lauder: [00:57:07] Okay. Great. Caitlin asks, would you rather be a sea or land animal?
Toni Lodge: [00:57:15] Oh, God, lots of restrictions with a sea animal, but it does sound nice. Um,
I currently am a land animal and I can go in the sea. Do you think that that would be the same situation?
Mason Lauder: [00:57:33] Uh,
Toni Lodge: [00:57:37] I'm going to say safe, because imagine like swimming through the ocean, like, that'd be beautiful
Mason Lauder: [00:57:43] until you get eight
Toni Lodge: [00:57:44] by shock.
Mason Lauder: [00:57:45] Yeah.
Toni Lodge: [00:57:45] Yeah.
Mason Lauder: [00:57:47] I mean, I was thinking am an octopus. I'd love to be an octopus
Toni Lodge: [00:57:52] or a jellyfish. Cause I live for that billions of years. Do they?
Mason Lauder: [00:57:56] Individually once they live for a long time to that
Toni Lodge: [00:57:59] jellyfishes
Mason Lauder: [00:58:00] Oh, really?
Toni Lodge: [00:58:01] Yeah, I think so.
Mason Lauder: [00:58:04] There you go.
Toni Lodge: [00:58:06] I'm pretty sure
Mason Lauder: [00:58:13] a few months, two to three years in captivity.
Toni Lodge: [00:58:16] Oh, I can live up to 20 years.
Mason Lauder: [00:58:20] What are you looking at? Oh
Toni Lodge: [00:58:22] yeah.
Mason Lauder: [00:58:25] That's a Polly Polly polyp, polyps, polyps, probably polyps
Toni Lodge: [00:58:32] poli. Um, how long did jellyfishes live? Okay. So some of them says,
Mason Lauder: [00:58:39] don't look at the images of polyps.
Toni Lodge: [00:58:42] No, does it then the nose thing, I
Mason Lauder: [00:58:46] don't know.
I just Google polyps and hit images.
Toni Lodge: [00:58:50] Google polyps jellyfish, or just pull up
Mason Lauder: [00:58:52] polyps.
Toni Lodge: [00:58:54] I know what it is. P O L Y P S. Yeah, I know. What's going to come up. Yeah. Yeah. It's not great. So, um, for anybody that can't Google this right now, they're just like little like ceased kind of things, but they, um, you can get them like the way that I, the reason I know about polyps is because my dad used to have them in his nose.
And so he used to snore really badly because he couldn't like breathe properly. Cause he had like polyps in his nose. Um, but yeah, I guess. I don't think that like, well, I guess that in some circumstances they would be bad. Don't think that they're cancerous or anything. Um,
Mason Lauder: [00:59:40] well, I'm just, I'm just trying to find, cause I did just say something around, um, the immortal jellyfish.
Toni Lodge: [00:59:45] Oh, Oh, sorry. I'm on polyps now. What's a coral polyp. That's quite Priti say, imagine life here, a land and say animal. And you just got to like cruise around a lot, the great barrier rifle die or something.
Mason Lauder: [01:00:02] Yeah, that would be nice.
Toni Lodge: [01:00:04] Like finding Nemo.
Mason Lauder: [01:00:07] Wow. Okay. So this jellyfish.
Toni Lodge: [01:00:09] Yeah.
Mason Lauder: [01:00:11] Once it reaches old age, it's then got the ability to revert completely back to a sexually immature age and they can do that process indefinitely.
Toni Lodge: [01:00:25] they just leave forever.
Mason Lauder: [01:00:26] They live forever.
Toni Lodge: [01:00:27] Yeah. That is amazing. I mean, it would be sad though, because all of your jellyfish, like all of your friends that went, I will to do that would be dead. That's the thing I just don't know about immortality myself, because you would just watch everyone around you die.
And that was so horrible.
Mason Lauder: [01:00:45] Yeah. That's true. You want one other person that you can be immortal with?
Toni Lodge: [01:00:48] Yeah. Black on Twilight. How? Um, You know, Edward and Bella, they're going to be together forever. Cause they're both vampires. That would be okay if Toby and I were both, um, Twilight universe vampires, that would be fine, but like, it'd be really sad if it was just you by yourself.
Mason Lauder: [01:01:05] Yeah. It would be a bit sad. Wouldn't it? Okay. All
Toni Lodge: [01:01:08] right.
Mason Lauder: [01:01:08] Uh, next question from retro snowflake, would you rather dance for 24 hours straight obey silent for awake?
Toni Lodge: [01:01:17] I'm not very fit. So I don't know if I could dance for 24 hours straight. Um, and just think about all of the good jokes that you would miss being able to say, if you didn't talk for a
I'll dance for 24 hours, get, get it over with.
Mason Lauder: [01:01:34] Okay. Yeah. Okay, great. Uh, do you, Amy asked you on an air fryer.
Toni Lodge: [01:01:39] I do want an air fryer. Yeah, I do have an infra. Um, Oh, it's really handy for, um, like doing potatoes and stuff. So they're not like real fatty, like instead of drain chips with like heaps of oil and stuff.
Um, Tobes does this fucking so good. They're like herbed potatoes and he doesn't mean the air fry with like onion and garlic, salt and light put psych Rosemary on them and stuff. They're so fucking good. Um, Uh, and we've also done like schnitzels and stuff. So you don't have to use any oil like you would, if you will.
That shallow frying them. Um, yeah. Recommend the air fry. I've just got a Kmart one, but it's really good.
Mason Lauder: [01:02:18] Oh, great. Yeah. All right. Um, this is from .
Toni Lodge: [01:02:23] Yeah. Will
Mason Lauder: [01:02:25] you ever have your fake producer boyfriend tubes on the podcast?
Toni Lodge: [01:02:30] All like as a guest?
Mason Lauder: [01:02:31] Yes. A special guest.
Toni Lodge: [01:02:34] Oh, I wouldn't mind it because I think it would be, I think it would be cool to have like, people ask questions about the toolbox.
Um, but I don't know if he ever would do it. I would definitely consider it. And if we have a slow week where we need some content, then definitely. Um, but I don't know. Okay. One more good one.
Mason Lauder: [01:02:53] Have you ever had a crazy hair
Toni Lodge: [01:02:55] color? Um, all that sort of good one. Oh, I mean, it kind of is, um, yeah, I've had like purple hair and stuff, but it doesn't last.
Mason Lauder: [01:03:03] Okay. What's your party trick?
Toni Lodge: [01:03:06] Oh, I get asked this a lot. I don't really have one. I actually, I actually, sorry, I actually don't really have one people saw it. Oh, what is that? Like, I can tie like a jelly snake in and out with my tongue. I can do, I can do the baby cry. Um, um, but apart from that, I don't really have one.
Sorry. I'm not very interesting person
Mason Lauder: [01:03:30] during another one.
Toni Lodge: [01:03:30] Yeah, one more.
Mason Lauder: [01:03:32] Okay. Where do you keep your tomato sauce? Okay.
Toni Lodge: [01:03:40] It's in the cupboard by the way. Um,
Mason Lauder: [01:03:46] favorite place to go in Melbourne.
Toni Lodge: [01:03:49] Oh, to bed. Is that really boring? I love going to bed. Um, my favorite place to go, um, I really, really like, um, Lennon's house of love, the chicken place in, um, Pran let, just off chapel street. It's amazing. Their food is so fucking good. I also really like Angus and bond also in Pran.
Um, I, uh,
Yeah. And Pella green is the Italian place in the city is like rude tourist trap, but so good. The food is fucking young. Um, yeah, they're probably my three favorite food places. Um, Leonard's though would be one of my tops cause it's
Mason Lauder: [01:04:36] okay, great.
Toni Lodge: [01:04:37] Yeah. Where's your FA you can say one place.

Toni Lodge: [01:04:56] growing up here. Well,
Mason Lauder: [01:04:58] my favorite place in Melbourne, uh, I really love Ghazi corner, but it was George Columbus's restaurants and that's shut down. Oh,
