This podcast is produced by BIG MEDIA COMPANY.
Hello, welcome to the seventh episode of one trick, Tony, a podcast where you can forget about your problems for a minute, except it's actually a whole hour and think about mine instead. Like I said, the seventh episode, which sounds like that show from when I was a teenager, not a teenager, I was way younger than that. Seventh Heaven with the dad was a pasta and I actually think that recently, one of the people from that show Kate, like, was involved in some sort of controversy. But I can't remember it was anyway. Payson is here with me again. Hi. Um, so last week, we, we said that instead of asking each other how we would because obviously we chat before we come on on record, and we decided that we're going to come up with an icebreaker game. I deed and it was absolutely atrocious. We don't need to go back through. It was just awful. So we're gonna give this one more try. I have come up with a different game still involving the scattegories da da da da dice. And so instead of a very confusing game where you it lands on a letter or sorry again to set up the scattegories dice, it is a 20 sided die from the game scattegories with 20 different letters on it
should lead us gone,
yet the shit letters have gone like Zed an x and y. No, no. Why? No. Why? Why I think that was a shit letter. That's right. It's pretty common. It's like a pretty common letter. Like if you think about x and Zed They're not that common, but I feel it Why is like pretty common yet?
Y'all, y'all get
I'm yolk like in an egg yolk. Yeah, that's yesterday. Yas.
Okay, well, a is on here actually. There's a dropping. Just kidding. Okay. Anyway, so we decided that that we were going to play this icebreaker game. The one loss rate was absolutely atrocious. So what I have come up with this week as our icebreaker game, and this is this is the last chance I've got because I base the podcast collaborators You can try one more time with this pod with this scattegories dice and Fox off again, you know. So we get one more try. And what I thought would be good is if we roll the dice, and it's like letter Association, so I roll the dice and say p comes up, you've got to come up with the firt. Like just say the first letter that starts with P that comes to your mind.
First word, yep. Okay, what did I say?
Fuck me. I feel like this is just doomed. This whole thing is just is not my best idea. And I keep trying to make it work and urges work. But so the thing is, we'll do them the word association, but why like, what what do we
let's just say right guys, okay.
So So, so essentially, you'll vote you roll the dice. Whatever letter it lands on, the first word that pops in To your head. I'll say
you say it and then we can discuss.
Or you get a bounce off that with a word that comes to your head off my word.
It's called One trick, Tony. All right, not one trick myself. And if I want some fucking ideas, I'll ask for them. Okay.
Okay, here we go.
Let's just say, let's try that. Let's try.
It's a very short game.
Ready? Okay. Yep.
Jay, Gary. Oh, that's my dad's name.
Oh, that was weird.
Oh, wait, do we continue to
go we just keep going.
Grain gastro, Gertrude.
Gertrude gag that just made me think of bait throat. Um, M. farts
are we going? Are we go
I was just thought I would start saying things I smell. I'm cooking
Vitamin D. Oh.
Make sure we smell.
Oh, that's a bit. We got two sentences. Sorry. I don't know. Make sure wait. Yeah, I mean, do we finish it? Where are we? With? Yeah.
See, that's the thing. There's not that the game format is better but I don't know that it has an end. I'll roll again. See what happens. Okay, I'll do whatever the letter is I'll do the word this time. Okay, and whatever that makes you think of let's just go let's just say we can get it out. Okay, ready? And
Mason. Oh, are you gonna go?
Yeah, that's that's me. I get
to care. So maybe very Do you have a role? Are you taking everyone's time?
Once again, one trick tiny. That's all right. That's fine. It's all about you today. A
at bat, bat bat.
Batteries like echolocation to figure out
where they are like a dolphin. Yeah. Yeah, that dolphins are the only other race that have sex for pleasure. And they're also the only other I said race. Obviously I met
that doesn't make sense. The only other spaces but they also are the only other species that ripe.
Oh, really? Yeah,
I know those assholes. I don't know. I don't know if that's true. If it might not be true Johnny Google that because I will not They made a sweeping statement about dolphins being a rice.
rice pests are usually pretty sure other animals like Should we stop saying?
Yeah, we've heard Yeah, yeah. Look I unconfirmed I don't know if we can confirm Okay.
Sorry about the sweeping statement I redact that from the era and yet we are very sorry for any confusion callers or people that you know, I'm super into dolphins. um you know what's fucking good tuna? Oh yeah. Tuna is so good. And I hate that people always like Cina is gross, because it's actually fucking not It's so good. Oh, what is G guy?
Just awesome at LD they just have the big blue, tinned tuna, but I bought tuna from Aldi.
I feel like that would maybe be my limit. Like maybe of all the places I wouldn't buy You know, maybe with reality,
there's it's actually one of the top tinned tuna that you can get in terms of sustainability.
But that's what they say. That's the top one. It's like how the gin from Aldi is apparently the best Jeena in the world and you know, all their wine is $1 50 and it's a seven litre bottle and it's rated higher than any restaurant quality one in the world. I just don't know that. That's true. I'm sorry. And the Germans they can there's not much they can't do but I don't know about the LD tuna. I just wanted to
Um, I actually To be honest, that was probably a bit over the top for me because I'm not that fussy on the brand. But you know, I the type that I like is this spring water oil blend. Oh, you know how you can get it with both because the oil is too naughty. Like all that oil because all those calories is so bad for you, but the spring water tastes like dickhole and it's absolutely foul like a taste like dead dolphins and cardboard is horrible. Again sorry for people that love dolphins. I feel really bad But do you know what I don't like flavoured tuna you know how to get like chilli oil and my love chilli
I love chilli oil tuna
oh I just it just just add add the five is yourself
yeah but if you if you mix it you having a tuna salad is what are you having your tuner in?
Well it depends I do we do, like do a tuna is this real pub? We do like a tuna pasta bake sometimes. Oh yeah. Is that ripoff is that like nearly like 70s mom food because you can fill it with like so many vegetables. And it's just like real cheap and real easy. Yeah Um, but I also love a tuna sandwich or like, just tuner and Russ.
You know how bodybuilders ate that? Because? So I'm familiar with the cuisine. But I just, I've just dropped my pin on it. Yeah, it's a fine liner. It's a fine line.
Oh, no, this isn't good.
Oh, fuck me did
how's it gone? How's it going everywhere?
I've picked it up with my toes.
Is it a thick fine liner? A thin look. What's the white?
It's a thin one. It's a point four. Oh, yeah. Yeah, I've got it. I've got it. Everyone. It hasn't dried out in that time. Thank God. That was really grossly that I said that I picked that up with photos. I'm yeah, I'm very dexterous with my fate. And that's like not a hot thing to tell people. But I can pick up anything with my toes. Really? Yep. So like if I the night before, like when I get home from work if I like put my socks on the ground or like pick them out with my feet, bring my foot to my hand. And then and then take the thing out of my head out of my foot out of my fucking finger ties and put it in and put it in the laundry basket.
that's disgusting. I
know. That's sick. I wish I could do that.
I'm not gonna rang a time. This isn't like in tracking the time to engine jerking. That'd be terrible. Um, I think so. I think that if someone told me that they did that I'd be like, what the fuck? But I do it. Because like when people say like, Oh, I don't wash my sheets that often. And you immediately are like, Oh my God, that's fucking disgusting when you know that you haven't washed your shades in like two months. Like, I do that because people tell me like oh like oh, I haven't washed my my towels. You Two weeks I'm like, Oh my God. That's disgusting when like, bitch, I know that I haven't watched him in that long. Probably longer, like, oh, oh, no,
I don't look, to be honest, I used to be even worse than that until I started living with my partner with my girlfriend and she's like, onto it in terms of just like, like all the shades all the towels like it's,
it's just, I live in an apartment right? So there's just like really not that much room to hang anything up. And normally we would just run across the road to the laundromat which is currently closed because of COVID. And at the moment, you know, it's it's only just warming up in Melbourne. And so there's actually just, there's just no options and you got that big queen bed sheets. You're not like Yeah, but I have a lot of rain.
Yeah, if you don't
have anywhere to hang them. I feel like I've really fucked myself up here because I said the toe thing, the finger toe thing. And now I'm saying like, yeah, I never wash my sheets. And I just think that people are going to be like, what a disgusting rat. But I'm not a disgusting rat. I'm not I just I'm, I need some water, I'm stressed.
It's not that it could be worse.
It could be better also. So I don't know how we ended up on the tuner and the finger toes and the dolphin rapists. But how did we feel about this new guy? It does need some work. But on the other hand, I'm also happy to scrap it and to say, you know what, maybe the scattegories dos isn't a great vehicle of breaking the OS. I know that we really liked the idea of But maybe it's time to say goodbye.
Hmm. I actually I actually quite enjoyed the word association game.
It's good, isn't it?
It's just like, where do we end? Yet say that it needs it. It needs a play maybe, maybe 10 is five Ah, outrageous. We go five, Association associations age,
or instead of going backwards and forwards, do we just know I don't know, I just had other games and that's what I want to know. Yeah. But like, how do you get that? Because we're designing I'm going to use that extremely loosely. But we are coming up with this game. It's when were the were the deciders, you know, and I feel like we're just not doing a good job. I am not doing a good job. And I think people are gonna get angry that I'm not good at making games but it's not it's not my forte. I never claimed that. I was Good
it's a real niche. Imagine a game designer
in besar hard
imagine being fucking Milton Bradley or whatever that guy's name is as being that monopoly guy.
Oh, did he make monopoly?
Yeah, Milton Bradley. Well, that's the brand maybe they're like brothers or husbands or something.
It's I'm pretty sure
that that's maybe I might that outlet.
Yeah, I found that Milton Bradley. Yeah.
Is that his name? Or is that two people's names?
That's his name. He's the founder.
Yeah. So did he create monopoly? Can you please Google who created monopoly? And then I want to know how much money that person has.
No, it was created by Lizzie Mackey.
A woman. Yeah. Oh, My God and Charles Darrow.
Oh, but I mean, Lizzie's the main one, I think,
how much money does she have? She did. Oh, yeah, no, she's
she's very dead 1948
Oh, fuck me has been around for a
while. So this one is it's derived from the landlord's game, which Lizzy created in 1903 1903
the fuckin monopolies been going for 117 years.
So when so what who did monopoly then?
The actual game? Yeah, not with.
So that would have been Milton Bradley.
No, it was Charles Darrow. So he he was he went over to her. He went over to someone's house and they played the landlord's game. Several times and then he went on to distribute the game himself as monopoly. You stole
it. God. He stole it from Lizzie. Yeah. Oh, my God. That's put me in a bad mode. Um, oh my god, I wonder how much money they had before they died.
fun, you know, be fun. Okay, we are so bad at making games. But you know, it'd be easy if we came up with a game. And everybody that listens, submitted one like week out with a basic game. And everybody that listens got to submit one role. And we created the one trick Tony board game.
That would be great.
Do you think we could do that? Because I've got heaps of craft stuff like I could knock that up. I could build the prototype. And then we would have all these rules and we have all these ideas.
Look, I'm You high No, no, no, I'm, I'm all for it. I'm just having we can't even figure out
That is a good point. But I feel like you know how some people aren't good at walking, but they're good at running. I feel like maybe we're not good at this game, though. Better.
be better at a game that's way more
intricate. Way more intricate. No, I don't want to steal one. No, Lizzie Lizzie has worked hard on her games. That's fun. I feel like this is a gala. I reckon. I reckon we could design the one trick tiny board game. There'll be cool. And I reckon if we come up with a basic concept, like so you know how monopoly is a board game because you like go around to get tokens. It's like about getting all the money. We could do a different one.
Um, we get all the Tonys
I am not for sale. A jewellery sale. Um well could you be buying? What do I like? Don't really lock anything toasties I do love sandwiches. Oh, it's a sandwich game. Maybe it's a game for kids where you have to make a sandwich. Um, what other things do I like?
Are you thinking board game? Are you thinking along the lines of that? You know the surgery the doctor game where it buzzes
Imagine putting a toastie together and if you do it incorrectly,
what if it's like operation but it's my body. And like, instead of the wishbone, you've got to put a toast in my tummy. I think I reckon tobs could probably knock that up. You're at it. Yeah. He can soda and that's all you need to be able to do. Oh,
there we go.
Okay, if anybody has any ideas of what a board game based on me could be, message us on Instagram at one trick pony show, and I reckon I reckon we do it. I reckon we can fucking like a board game. That'd
I will make it. I will. I've got I've got bloody I've got paper that hates the paper though. coloured pencils,
lots of pencils,
so I could colour it in. I could make it look really cool.
There we go.
I've got a hot glue gun. I've got glitter. I put some pipe cleaners. I can so I can knit I can. I would be able to make this crap. I'm so fucking excited. And if that backfires, we'll make a puzzle. We'll get someone to print it off. Okay. I'm very excited. If you have any Fucking boardgame ideas. Whether it's an idea for like the format of the game, maybe it's a card game that could be fun. Like maybe it's a card game, or maybe a paper. Yeah. Um, what other types of games are there board games?
Could be like dice some Connect for sort of thing connects
for or a dice game like yatse Oh yeah, that's fun. yatse is such a fucking good game every year like every single year of my life when I was a kid up until I was like 17 we went on holiday like a family holiday every July school holidays to broom. And if you don't know where broom is, it's absolutely delicious. It's not my favourite place on Earth, but tobes won't go there with me because it's too hard. But it's in the north of wha and it's like the most amazing beaches like oh, it's Honestly incredible, like people travel from all over the world to go there. It's like the most amazing place. Anyway, what was I doing about? Oh, we would go there every year. And we have like this board game box that my mom put together and it had like yatse and cards. And you know that game Balderdash. Have you ever played that game? I've heard of it. I've never played it. So it's like you pull out a card with like a word on it. And everybody that's playing has to Oh my god, I'm so sorry. Something happened. I need some water. I'm so excited about the game.
Just a bit of reflux.
Yeah, that was I literally I Oh, my ideas were coming out at once and I just thought I was gonna die. Ah, about that. And everybody writes down what they think the word means. And then you have to peak like you say, No, I think that's the right one. And if people pick your fake definition, definitely Then like you get points and you move up the board. Oh, great. It's such a good game. But we used to like and Jenga and like we just had this like massive box with all these games in it. Blue's Clues memory game was in there for when I was a bit younger. And then when I got older, my nephew Tyler loved that game. Anyway, and we used to always play Yahtzee. And now whenever I play Yahtzee, I'm like, Oh, it's like I'm playing video a lot board games with my family. You know, those like fun memories where you can like remember exactly what you used to do. And I actually have the box somewhere in my house, and it's got all of the old like shapes from like, when we used to play together. Yeah, like so all the like, so it's got like, whoever's name it was at the top like, so I've got like all the old score cards like of my mom and my sisters and my brother and stuff. It's so fucking cool. And like the random boyfriends and girlfriends that like came and gone. Like, came and go FARC and hell Iman went, obviously he's just. And yeah, so you'd like go through and you'd be like, oh, who's that? And you'd be like, Oh, they weren't around for long, like kick guns, right? But anyway yatse das bass game very good game great. Um, if you've never played darts at all you need is five dice and a score sheet and you should play it so fucking fun. Anyway, that's just another format of game. So if you've got any ideas, do you hate the idea?
No, actually, no, I think it's great. I'm actually really excited because you don't know if it's going to be a card game, a board game. Or like a, you know, one of the other games?
embarrassingly, I actually think I'm most excited about making it. And I know that that's supposed to be what I care about the most, but I think it's gonna be so fucking fun. Oh my god, we're making a game or making a podcast game anyway So that's obviously not where we were meant to go today. Otherwise, we would have had more game chat planned and I would have known more than three games like Yahtzee, Balderdash in operation or whatever the one that I said. I was we were talking before about like before we came on air very ritzy. And we're talking about what we did on the weekend. And you were saying that you like went and played soccer and stuff because you like very young and hot and fair, and I watched Milan the new new land. Oh, yeah. How is it the new movie? It's not as good as the original. Because there's no songs.
Yeah, have you seen the original I haven't seen the original but I've seen all the hype around a new one. And I wasn't sure if it was gonna live up to it.
Well, so I we were short tubes and I was sitting on the couch with that really Fucking bored because another weekend, you know, I So, yes, I know that that's what we're doing and I am fully behind it. I'm not griping about having to do it. We're just getting bored. And we've cleaned out our cupboards and we've done all that like, reorganised our kitchen and bought more clothes than we need and all the other things that we've had to do. Excuse me, and I was on the phone to my brother, and he was like, Oh, we watched the new alarm last night. I don't think you say it. meilan I think you sign Milan. Um, but we really fun and he was like, Oh, we watched it last night. It was really good. And I was like, Oh, it's on Disney plus Hi. And did you know that like cuz you know how Disney passes obviously is streaming service so you pay like $20 a month or whatever it is to like pay for the privilege of watching all this shit. Fair enough. And then to watch new lawn get Yeah, top of that. You have to pay more fucking money.
That's at random. How much is it? Like 25 bucks. Yeah.
So my my brother Jamie said that. All together was probably like 35 bucks or something to pay for the fucking privilege to watch that movie on my couch. Like I get it, I get it. But that's a little bit stape I think. I mean, I get that if you went to the cinema it would cost 20 bucks for a ticket. But you go to the fucking cinema it sounds amazing. It looks amazing. Like I'm sitting on my couch from IKEA that's like, covered in burrito made and like, yeah, literally feathers from my ears. And you know, like dead skin. And I have to pay $35 for the privilege of watching you know, my like, huge but shit TV, like, take the fucking piss anyway, he was like, I mean, we didn't do this because it's illegal. But he said, Would you hypothetically like to login to my account and watch the meilan because I've already paid for it and you can watch it more than once
or how long do you get it for?
I wonder if once you pay is at one like a one off fee? Because Do you remember on foxtel? So for anybody that's not in Australia that's like cable TV like sky or whatever it's called in the UK. You like could buy single passes to watch movies. That's what I thought it must be like that. It's like you pay for it once and the file lasts for four hours or whatever and then that's not like that at all. But no, I think you can just keep watching it, but maybe it expires on June a Googler.
Sure. I did. I did actually. Right. So they are going to make it free. So it's essentially one step
to like, you're not I fuckin mean like it's no, it's, it's not okay. You are putting No, no, though. Oh, no, actually, that doesn't make me feel really bad because they obviously not gonna make any money from the cinema like they should. Do so all the light casting crew they totally deserve to make money and all the producers and share that's that I work in the arts like that's I know I don't mean that, but I just think that's a little bit state when you're already paying for a service, you would be like if Netflix said, Yep, you can pay to watch all the ship but if you want the Netflix exclusive content, you've got to pay extra money like, Yeah, come the fuck on. What did you write? What does it say?
Well, so I'm just I'm just looking at some of the 30 bucks on Disney plus, sorry, on top of the subscription, that's seven bucks.
So is that $7 a month or a week?
I think that's a month seven. This might be you. I think this might be potentially us. So it's a little bit more no idea what
you're doing. You've got no idea what you're doing. You're extremely under qualified.
You can watch it till November two.
Okay. So you think This is what I want to know. I'm gonna put this pin down this is incredibly threatening Disney plus thinks that may paying for that once and then having it available until November whatever you said to november two so what's that it's the 14th of September today. So that's like what another six weeks? How many more fuckin times Am I gonna watch me lawn?
I've never had anyone call me like,
I don't know. Is it not new long isn't it Milan, Milan. I feel like it's Milan. But how many more times Am I gonna watch Milan?
I don't know. And then it's becoming free on December 4. Normal Disney plus.
Don't know I don't know about it.
The first one is really good. I actually watched the first movie at the cinemas with the same brother that lent me his login, who I watched it. Who I watched it from. Hmm, no. That's not how I would say that. I watched it with my brother, who was the one that lent me his login, hypothetically, because you're not allowed to do that. That's probably like potential jail time. I'm just a bit of a badass. And I was saying to him, Do you remember when we went and watched Milan when I was a kid, and so my brother is, like 13 years older than me. So when I was a little like, so by the time I was five, he was 18. So he will actually buy the towers for because his birthday is at the end of January, and my birthday is at the end of November. So he's like, almost 14 years older than me. But anyway, So by the year so he was way older than me, but it was awesome because he like took me to the movies and like, Did heaps of cool shit with me. And I remember when we're going to watch Milan, and I was really what can you please check what you Milan theoriginal Milan came up?
No, no, no.
Are you sure? Milan? animation musical? One hour and 28 minutes? 1998
Oh, I thought you said 1988 I was like I said at the start. I think you did because I was not alive.
While I was gonna live for this one.
You're barely alive for the one that came out this year. Okay. Um, anyway, so 1998 I was born in 93. So I guess it would have been five. Wait. Yeah, yeah. So my brother would have been 18 anyway, and I wasn't I was fucking five. So I wasn't like allowed soft drinks or anything like that, like my mom was really strict about like I wasn't allowed Coca Cola like because obviously it's got caffeine in it and stuff. And and we went to the movies and my mom was like, Oh, you can have a lemonade like that's like a fun trade feed go to the cinema. Anyway, so Jamie and I, we went to the cinema. And he got and I was so excited. I actually remember getting like, dressed up in like, these little denim dungarees that I had, and like, Ah, it was like a huge outing, and I love my bra and we've always been really close anyway. So we, we got to the movies, and I'm five and I'm so fucking excited about saying new lon that like I can't pace myself. So get into the cinema, and I sit down and I drink all of my lemonade. Like, right away. I know what a fuckwit anyway, and you know what, I've never done that since. since I was five. I have never gone straight into a cinema and drunk my drink ever again. That's the only time Really Why? So I got lemonade, and my brother got coke and we got like a big popcorn to share. And so I've drunk all my lemonade rookie era, and the movie starts and I grab like a massive fucking handful of popcorn. And I got a kernel stuck in the back of my throat but I drank all my drink. And Jamie had Coca Cola. And he was like, tight like, you need to have some of this like, you're just gonna keep coming. I was like, I'm not allowed coke like little loser. Like I'm not allowed coke like, no, I you have to go and get me another drink. He's like, I've just paid the $6 to save new line. I'm not walking back out to get you another drink. Anyway, and he was like, just have a sip of this cup popcorn Quinnell and back my throat. And so I had a sip of coke. And he was like, don't tell mom. Don't you tell mom that I gave you coke? Or she'll go fucking spear? And I was like, Oh, yeah, okay, let me know I went to him. And I just didn't clear I remember going home and Jamie in the carbing like okay, but don't tell them I'm not I gave you coke like it was the only instruction she gave me is not to give you a quote, and we get home and mom's like, Oh, my God.
like I'd like exploded because I felt so bad about that car Coca Cola at the plugin cinemas. Oh, yeah.
I know I feel so bad and still now so like, when I watched on the weekend, I sent him a photo of like a can of Coke. And like the the screen and I was like, oh done Tom. Mom. Like Yeah, very funny. Very cute. Anyway, I hope that everyone really enjoyed me screaming there is just then but it's the excitement of the story. The neighbours scream if this scream isn't there, the story might as well be dead. So last week, we asked you guys to send in any questions that you had so because obviously we've been going now for seven weeks Which is actually I know that sounds like such a cop out. But seven weeks is such a long time. Oh yeah. And everyone's been so incredibly sweet but we got some questions so patient has gone I haven't read them but patient has gone through and picked a couple of good ones. So we thought that we would answer them. way that we would answer them we're going to go through them to get through them. Yeah. And we might not answer because if it's like where's all your gold buried then I'm obviously not gonna answer. I don't have any gold and it's definitely not buried.
Buried gold. I don't know about that.
Yeah, that's not a good plan. I wouldn't rotch like, cuz, Gold's really soft.
That's a good point. Like liquidity, would it get um, rust on it? Can Gold Rush
I don't think gold can rust, but Gold's really soft. So like it like you know how, when there's like a nugget in the ground. Like if you go like fossicking all that metal detecting like gold prospecting whatever it's fucking cold fossicking is when you do it in the water. prospecting is when you do it with a metal detector in the ground. I know a lot about
finding gold. I don't think it does because it doesn't react with oxygen ever. So it doesn't rust. I don't recognise it doesn't Ross but does it get
all soft and weird?
I don't think so. I think it's just I think it's a soft meaning like, you know, you can Denton stuff I don't know if it actually destroys.
Maybe in future if you plan on burying gold, put it in a receptacle. pop it in a jar, just in case in a box in a case. Exactly right. Yep. You could put it in anything. A big bag.
your house? Yep. Yep. How you gonna bury a house as well as big
Yeah, well, I just hope you're not
saying to bury the house put it just keep it in the wardrobe, you know, yet keep it in the house. Yeah. Okay, well, that's covered that one.
Oh my god.
Oh, stop shop for bearing gold. Yeah.
We'll teach you how to bury gold, the best tuner to buy and how to say how to make a card.
How to make
Yeah, that's exactly right. All right. So I pulled out a few questions. These uh, I got a few bigger questions and then ones that we can rattle off in a quick fire. We're gonna do first what I reckon we start with a few questions. beefy, beefy, the real meaty questions. So the first one, okay, what
are we gonna do names?
No, I got rid of all the names. Is that problematic? I just thought it'd be better if we got all the knives. Easy. If you're listening, it's gonna be like Man, is he gonna be mine? Like, you know?
Yeah, but I feel like people would still be that like that even if we said,
okay, well I've got so I can't
say so I can't say hi, Stacy. Um,
Okay. All right. Hang on. I'm really sorry, everybody, but we aren't going to be doing names. And in the future, this is not going to be an issue because there'll be different producer. So, thank you so much for listening, even though there's no names. Okay.
All right, the first one, What's the hardest aspect of your job?
Oh, I like my job at Jason PJ. None of it's really hard. I would say for anybody that doesn't know I am an audio producer for Jason PJ, the radio show breakfast radio show. And I would say that the hardest thing is probably that it's like a very high pressure job. It's, it's none of it's really hard because we have jobs like so there's like 12 of us on our team. And we all have jobs that we are all really good at, like, where everybody that I work with is the best at what they do. So I don't think that hard is really the right way to describe anything that we do together. But like it's definitely challenging because we're like being put through our paces all the time, you have to be concentrating really hard so that we can get things in at the last minute. And you know, like, there can be 30 seconds left of a song and then they say, like, Oh, we need audio for the next break and, you know, that kind of thing. So it's hard, I guess, like, we these sounds really lame, but we actually own so close. And we're all really good friends. So I guess actually, sometimes the hardest thing is that we don't fuck around. Like it's really hard to walk around with everybody because we are all like actually best friends. And then because of I would also like for people to think about this as my job even though it's not the hardest thing about this job is nothing. It's so easy. I wake up in the morning I don't even think about it and then just you know, all of a sudden there's an episode you know, it's so easy. I do nothing, there's no planning and it's just basically easy. And then my other job as a board game developer, that is a bit more difficult because coming up with concepts
cutting the pipe for the gods.
And then my other game as a movie reviewer is quite hard. Because I can't say the title of the movie me long. Um, so yeah, all jobs have been challenging.
How's it working, Brian?
Stop doing. Okay. I was trying to think of I was trying to say thank you Stacey, or whoever Her name was, I don't know who it was. Next question.
How is it working in radio when you can suffer from anxiety and mental health?
Um, oh, I mean, all jobs. All jobs can be hard. I guess when you if you have any ailments without mental or physical, I think all things can pose their challenges, even like getting out of bed in the morning can be really hard if you are depressed, especially if you're depressed. I would say that actually, for me, it really helps because I kind of like when we do the podcast like I get to be. I'm like a character. This isn't, you know, I'm not like this. I mean, actually, I'm very over the top a lot of the time, but Like I actually I really I don't know if a Skype is the right word because it sounds a little bit band ad. But it is actually a really good escape plan because I know that I've I've touched on like when my mom was sick a couple of times but the while while she was really ill like so all of us as in my brothers, my brother and sisters, and my dad, we were all caring for her. And I was I was going to uni I was caring for mom and I was working at Kohl's and then any spare time that I had I was basically sleeping or like at home so that we could like do it shift change off of like making sure that mom had had like all her medicine in the morning and then whatever else. And like I actually love just going to work at calls because it meant that I was like Tony at calls and I wasn't tiny with a sick mom and I wasn't 20 at uni and I wasn't like trying to trying to get through the day it was just like I could go To calls and ask people how much ham they wanted. I worked in the deli that's not like a euphemism. And like, just be different person. So I think that we've, when it comes to like working in radio and having to be that like larger than life kind of person, I actually I love it because I get to not think about whatever's going on. And because I think that it's something that I'm really good at. I know that you're not supposed to say that. I know that you're not supposed to say like, I'm actually really good at that. But it is something that I really enjoy. Oh my god, stop it. But it's something I really enjoy. It's something that I'm good at. And that makes me happy. So then I just come home and I'm depressed.
All right. Well, thanks. I
When you're having a down day, what brings you out and makes it positive?
I guess they'll Last question, kind of answers that, like when I get to be creative, and stuff like that, like that makes me happy. But sometimes if I'm having a down day, the last thing that I want to do is try and laugh, or do anything. And sometimes it's really hard for me to do that, like, turn it on, you know how sometimes you just like, the last thing you want to do is like, flick a switch and be all happy. And even for us a couple of weeks ago, we recorded an episode. And I was like, we need to do that again. Like I was just not on I was having a really shitty day and back and these things happen. That's why we pre record and that's why we have a good relationship so we can be honest with each other. But tobes He is so good with stuff like that. And if I'm having a really down day or something's really upset me, he'll say only feelings based or solutions based right now. And if I say that, I'm feeling better He'll just like snuggle me until I feel better. Or like, get me something to eat. Or, like, make me like, shake out or my anger. Or like he'll say, why don't you go and exercise or why don't you, like watch a TV show that I know that you really like or whatever. And there's a few things that we can do that are like that. So he's really, really good for me, but I try and make sure that if I'm having a down day, I can fix it myself. So that if one day tobes isn't there, or I don't have anything else that I can rely on, like, I know that I can get out of it myself, but it's often a shower or sleep. Grind is the only way that I can get out of it. Thank yc for that question.
Why did you decide to make this podcast? Oh,
great question Stacey. Um, so So I that's it. That's a hot one actually. I told this is I don't know if this is too far back. But when I was a kid, I told my mom that I would be famous. Like, I don't even know how old I was. I was probably, like, just danced out of the womb. And I was like,
For as long as I can remember, I was like, No, I'm gonna be famous, like, Don't even worry about it. And I always thought it would be for singing or dancing. And that has not taken off now. Which is why I've obviously had to turn to try and be funny. But I Yes, I've always like loved the idea of getting to entertain and make people laugh or make people happy. And then when I met with the podcast collaborators about starting these podcasts, I was like, Look, I would love to dissect Would you be interested in starting a podcast? And I said, I would love to do that. But there's, there's no way anybody would listen to that. Like, there's just there's just no way. And they were like, No, we actually think that people would listen. And it turns out that people have which is, which is so cool. And I think that I like I like to think that I offer like a different kind of perspective because even I am, like, super enthusiastic and over the top like, think for someone that's only 26 I've probably been through a bit like we've losing my mom and moving around the country for work and all of that, like everybody has their learning curves and stuff and mine and mine and yours are yours. But I think that making these podcasts has been like a really good test of like building confidence and I probably Like proving to myself that even though I've my whole life, I thought that I really wanted to be famous. And I thought that I would never be because of like, the way that I look. And I was like, oh, like, I'm not that good looking or I'm not super thin or whatever, like, people aren't gonna want to listen or listen to me, you'll watch me or whatever, cuz I'm not hot. And screw you guys. Because it turns out you actually do want to listen to me, even though I'm not hot. And yeah, I think it was like a good, like, push myself out of my comfort zone. And that's been, even though that's been like one of the hardest things about it. That's been the most fun. And I've definitely gotten a lot more confident in like, what I can do. Yeah. And so that was probably one of the reasons that I wanted to start this podcast and I also had like, heaps of support behind me from like, from you patient and the podcast collaborators and my team at Jason PJ and with total And my family and stuff like everybody has been super keen and so supportive. So it's been like it was easy to decide that I wanted to do it. That's the question or did I get really off base? That's perfect. Sorry, Stacey. Thanks for the question.
All right. So some quick fire.
First question. Can you burp on demand?
No. I'm not really a bad part. I don't bet very often. Not really. Is that Is that bad?
impressive. Yeah. I'm on the fence. You want me to bet for you? I know, I'm just gonna shoot myself.
That would be annoying.
All right, would be annoying. Yeah. Thanks for the question. No, I can't be up on demand.
If you were an animal, what would you be pug I really
like it. Um, because they're cute, but like, a bit ugly and like short and chubby, and that's kind of like me. So I can imagine a pug with huge glasses. Or I'm
not a pug. What would you say?
dolphin. I like to
go great. Next question. Next question. Next question. That's good. Thanks, Stacy.
All right. If you could be a vegetable what would you be and why?
orba Shane eggplant, super versatile. Okay, pumpkin delicious kabhi.
Have any patient care No
Oh sorry is just one just
Oh, I love vegetables like I froth vegetables. I hate it when it's summer and it's like harder to eat vegetables because they're so hot
sandwich into salads.
No, no yeah and like that's fine. Oh fuck you're not gonna do another cooking tip. Oh my god don't scare you no no no and salad is great but I just love like roasted vegetables like when you do tubs as mom she does is amazing. She does an amazing cauliflower Chase, but she does like amazing brussel sprouts with like, bacon and oh fuck they're so good. Oh, a cabbage is a really good vegetable. I love cabbage. Cabbage. Oh, no, I froth cabbage like, Oh, we make these amazing Chinese dumplings. fucking good. Cabbage in them. Okay, I aubergine
a plant secret.
eggplants? a versatile you can do lots with them. But same with a tomato. Like sauce isn't nillas I yeah, yeah, I'm not I'm not a vanilla person. Okay, um fuck me. Yeah, I'm gonna go the aubergine or a weird mushroom. I can no key mushroom. Okay, great. Yeah.
All right nice. Next one. Do you shave your thighs?
No, no no I read some way once that that's how the worst thing that you can do. And so I just decided I wouldn't do that though at the same time I feel like I need to stop basing my entire life decisions on something that I heard once I remember at School. This like primary school that maybe you seven, I remember someone telling me that law and it is actually kind of true that you only get hairs on your toes when you have pubes. So, which is I guess actually probably mostly accurate.
It probably happens all the same time, right?
mature body hair. It's like, you know, all good. But I was really embarrassed because I didn't want people to let know that I had pubes because you know, when you're young you like don't Yeah, people know about your body. And I was terrified of anybody else's body, let alone my own. So I was like that. So I shaved my toes when I was a kid. Like in your seventh year, right? Not a kid, but that's fucked. Now. Like, sounds like he sent me right. How do you then like 12 Yeah. 13 Yeah, anyway and now my toes a fact I have to shave them all the time because really yet because the hair is all fogged and it's like so embarrassing, because and literally the only reason that that is a thing is because someone told me and I was like, Oh, I don't want people to know that I've got pubes, I'm gonna shave my hair off.
And so and so what happens if you let it grow out? Can you not just let it grow and then wax them and then there'll be back to normal?
Maybe I could do that. But I've never wanted them to get to a wax point because, I mean, if anybody's ever shaved their toes, that's listening. You're fucking not I'm talking about that. Like, oh, it's really girl. Nana, what is it's thick. The hair. It's thick. It is the kid like like, ah, single hair is fake. It's a it's a coarse hair. So no, I don't shave my thighs. Thank you for asking.
don't shave your toes.
don't shave your fucking toes. If you're a kid and feel like a knuckles, what about your knuckles never shaved my knuckles. I don't really have any hair on my knuckles because like my hair on my arms and stuff is quite fun. To be honest, I didn't even need to fucking chive the hair on my toes. I just, I thought that everyone would be like, Oh my god, Tony's got pubes. You know, like, Who needs that? So just I thought that it'd be easier. And turns out 20 years later, well, not 20 years later, I'm not that old. 14 years Ida I'm 27 1414
Yep. Great job. You got it. Perfect. If you could save one item from a house fire. What would it be?
Oh, I've got some stuff of my mom's that I'd probably save like I have her eternity ring that I probably And I've got like some letters and stuff from her that I'd probably grab my passport because it's really fucking expensive. Or fact mental note tubes is bloody passports about to expire.
I've got it going anywhere soon, so
yeah, but it's such a fuckin pain though if you get it renewed, so like $100 but if you add if, if you let it lapse, it's like $400 of real passport. And if I don't mention that again, console messaged me on Instagram. All right, you can have two more questions. Okay.
Would you rather have toe size fingers or finger size toes
are? Well as we covered off earlier in the podcast, I've kind of got finger ties. So I guess I would just pick that because I've already got that.
Reverse sulphate just like any
I'm a versatile gal.
Okay, great. And then the last one
Oh my God, is it gonna be a really good one?
Do you add noodle flavouring before or after draining the water?
I go personally This is what I do. I go sachet in the bottom flavouring in the bottom of the jungle ball. Yep. And then oh hang on and then, okay, no, no, I didn't want to be differently actually because I do my noodles on the stove and put the sachet in the bottom, and then I drain all the soup out and I just, I don't put the soup. I don't eat the soup.
Yeah, you have the noodles.
Yeah, so I go.
So it's before draining them because you're mixing it in before when it's in the water. you're mixing it in with water.
No, no, no, I just put the sachet empty. The sachet into the bottom of the bowl and then I put the noodles drained noodles into the top and then I like mix it around
yeah okay. I say
is that is that fact is
what what I do when when I when I have two minute noodles it's like you you drain all of it so you've just liked like you bit instead of putting it in the bottom of the ball as you put on the top
yeah so but you've already gotten rid of the
water cooler Yeah, yeah,
yeah, so you want to drink the soup? Well, I don't fucking like yuck starchy garbage and I'm not going to put the flavouring into the water because then half of its going to be drained out Oh yeah, right so if I put the if I put the flavouring into the water to boil that's just going to boil it all away and then I'm going to take off it down the scene. stupid fucking question. Pick a different one.
Okay, when did you last get caught In a juicy lie
I actually know who sent this one in because she talked to me about after she went mad as anybody who's been is a friend of mine that I wasn't being rude about someone that listens to this podcast. And I said, that sounds like you're trying to catch me out in a juicy line shoe and so I feel like maybe you know a comment maybe let's pick a different one. Not rise i don't i actually I'm not don't really lie because I'm not good at it. Okay, like so I just say I'm bad. I'm not a good liar. And I get really hot and sweaty and then I get confused and because I've got so much fucking anxiety, if I am worried about anything other than the truth, then I just get confused and I forget who knows why and like, even surprises, terrible with surprises, all of that stuff. I'm just so bad. I just I Not my mistress
Mater. Okay, what would be your superpower?
Okay, either in visibility or teleporting?
What are you gonna do with being visible?
Well then I could listen to people's conversations. Okay? Yeah. And look at cute boys naked. Nah, just kidding that's that's assault. Now I don't know I feel like in visibility is like a good one but then I think teleporting is better. Yeah, you know what would be good mon control? Oh yeah, so I could be like, oh, give me all your money. Oh, that's main actually isn't it? Oh I'll go teleportation because I feel like I'm not going to hurt anybody with my powers. Welcome
are the flying or teleportation the same teleporting is going from one spot to another flying.
Yeah, but all you're flying you're like journey not the destination. So you like one a lot look at all the shit. Yeah, yeah takes too long. That's fucking someone that's dumb otherwise you just fine fine fine. Yeah. And you don't have to worry about your Brain exploding due to change a bit of pressure
I feel like you'd be immune to that if you get a flying superpower.
Oh that's actually so true and I did not think about that. I think I picked teleporting Okay, yeah, I feel like we're not ending on a very good night because we didn't agree on the superpower.
Why am I like teleportation? I don't mean to change.
No, I don't need to change. I want you to feel comfortable here saying what you feel. Okay. And if sometimes that is cooking tips, then that's fine. That's, that's fine. Thanks, Stacy, for your question. This podcast is really long. I'm so sorry everybody
