Hello, welcome to Episode Four of one trick pony podcast where you can forget about your problems for a minute and think about mine instead. If you've listened to the last episode, which you should have, I've got my mate Mason with me who did get the job in the end, get a Hey, going, I don't know why I just said get a I don't think I've ever said that to someone before. But we're starting now, which we've just decided that's what we're doing now. And we are really excited because we've just realised that we've got some little sound effects because we're increasing the production value of the show. So if for example, I made a really funny joke. I like that I went into that like that instead of actually making a funny joke.
and then you find Got a goal in ice hockey?
Oh, is it? I think it might be baseball
is it? Ah, I want to run down run set the
Oh, is it? I have a feeling it is.
Oh, I thought that that was Oh, no isn't baseball, Danton dun dun dun, ant, ant,
ant ant ant ant on identity? And then it goes like that. Hang on. What's
going on? Here we go.
What are you googling?
It's just I'm just listening to the crowd.
Did you put into Google? What spoke goes dead dah dah dah dah.
I just hit home run sound. Oh,
okay. Well, is it that?
I can't tell it sounds did
not that's a bloke yelling harm run.
Off to baseball.
Either one of the two
now I feel like we've let people down because we don't know anything about sport. But you know what if people are coming here to learn about sport they have gone to the wrong fucking place because I don't know anything about sport. And you always talk about baseball or softball or whatever it is and I'm like I don't know what I don't even know what shaped bowl is. That's a lot that yeah,
I mean, I'm not I don't think I'm a sports guy either. But I just baseball Grace's into it and and so is one of the podcast collaborators. So I've started to get into it and start watching it so
so your girlfriend grace said I like baseball and you like sign so then you had to Yeah, for sure.
Sign sign with footy
Oh like AFL AFL but I don't actually barrack for anyone you know how? Because in especially in Melbourne, but in Australia, it's like one of the first things that people ask you like, oh, who do you Barrick for I'm like no one but I really like it. NFL,
going to the games is so fun because you just get to scream. I feel like it's therapy, you get to go there and just like scream at people about how bad a job they're doing. But imagine if someone came here today. And they screamed at me while I was doing my job. Like
someone walked in that door and they were like, you're doing a good job. Like I just I don't think I could performance back on pressure.
And it's people of all ages as well. You got like little kids doing it too. Like, yeah, I'll pay for it. Like it's crazy.
And I just feel mental health. I feel that maybe should we talk to a football player or any sports star and just see how they feel about actually being scraped up? Well, they're doing a good job. Yeah,
surely they weren't here. A lot of it.
Oh, yeah. I mean, obviously has been controversy around like horrible things that have been said, Oh, this isn't good. This isn't obviously where we were going. But then we couldn't figure out what shape the ball in baseball was. And, you know, I don't know what sport that's from, but it doesn't really matter. It's that's not on my show plan. So I feel like we need to let it go. But we, I mean, tangent aside. So this is actually our first episode that we've recorded since we've gone live live. So other episodes that we'd made so the first two that were made with fake producer boyfriend tubes, and then Mason had his job interview. So now I've got a personal assistant, and I can't decide whether I'm an asshole enough to actually refer to you as my personal assistant because it makes me feel like we're like in a class war like
really main segment
So, I don't know what should we call you? Should we just call you Mason?
You either my personal assistant a PA? Yeah, yeah, yeah,
my pa I've got my pa with me. My dad
I've got a comment and I'll come on.
I am a
PA my patient paces I said, Hey, I Mason Tyson. I like pacing. That works. So we hired Payson, recently named will give you a best certificate or something.
And I'll be honest, like, I did not think that anybody would listen
to me like, well, I listened to your podcast and it's really good and I was like, you show that you listening to these fun you didn't click like play on something else.
And yeah, it's actually been incredible. And I think like doing this episode today after actually having feedback is really really cool because the other three we've kind of gone in a bit blind, and also just dropped a bobby pin on the table. Did you hear that? A little bit? Oh,
that wasn't part of choice.
Somebody said I hate it when she dropped stuff on the desk and now I'm gonna put down nervous hands obviously. Um, but yeah, it's actually been really, really cool like so in the second episode I talked about like, mental health and juicy chickens and honey and all of a sudden I'm getting people like tagging mean things like oh, like having honey on my toes. And isn't that just the dream that you talk about? Something like some shitty off the cuff comment and then people are like, Oh honey, or life or whatever. I mean I don't know I feel like I feel like I've made it and I didn't really do anything yet you're celeb
it's finally happened. Um,
I actually could not believe it.
Is this thing God I mean yeah, I think I think you're I think you've done such an epic job like to be able to start to be able to start the podcast and do you know like four episodes in like you're doing some amazing
person you know, you've already got the job
done. But yeah, like all these people reaching out and saying, like, just really nice stuff and it's just been so lovely. So thank you to everybody that's listened or this is like the first time you've ever listened, go back and listen to the other ones in case they're better than this one. But, but yeah, it was just amazing. And then also, I talked about the boots. So I bought this pair of boots that I thought were going to change my life and they didn't. But then I talked about them and everybody you know, there was I got lots of messages of people being like, I've done that. I've bought clothes like that and thought that they were gonna fix me and then they didn't. And everybody was like, just wear the boots beach and I have and it's amazing really changed my life. Yep.
How great Where did you wear them? Um,
well, I only go to work at the moment. Because we're in lockdown. Because I'm an essential worker. And yeah, like no one made fun of me. Everybody just said I really liked them and said that they looked expensive, which they actually weren't is probably the most I've ever spent on something. So I'm glad that
but yeah, are how
Oh, what do you do? you've you've prepared a speech Haven't you pace and you've decided you want to say something? Well, that's it. For this, you will like I really feel like I've got a few words that I need to say to the one trick tiny listeners. So I'd like to pass the mic over to you. Sure.
Well, I just want to say a massive, massive thank you to everyone that's listened. They see what I said. Yep. Yeah, the feedbacks been incredible. It also said and, and we're so excited to continue each episode and pushing them out. And we can't wait for you guys to keep listening to them and keep tagging us in post where you're putting honey on your toast by the sound effect.
Now the hormone was fine. I feel like
I also got sent. I've started a trend so this is this is also huge news. I missed link I'm just opening it. Oh, here we go. Dirty Chai take a sip of this hot new beverage really, which is the coffee that I drink. I've started a trend except it is on a website called a times entertainment Times of India. So I don't know if we've gone international yet, so it might actually might actually have nothing to do with me but it's not even about like a chai latte. It's about chai tea.
How How old is it ration?
Yeah, yeah, it's from the July the 22nd. Oh, wow. Hmm. Actually, that might have been before the first episode.
My guy disregard
sent me that is a dandy.
Okay. Oh, well that
just been googling that. I mean, how do you fit just googling dirty almond shy?
I don't actually know maybe Yeah. They set up like a Google Alert. Because they're obsessed with me. You know? How do you what is a Google Alert?
Well, so you can you can do a Google for search term. So every time it's mentioned and picked up by Google will get sent an email so we've done it for Tony lodge 150
we need to though we can do that. Oh,
the worst thing is, is that when you Google me, like weird hotels pop up like that a cold village lunch? Yeah, unlike, you know, the prime minister's house and stuff like it was never actually about me. Like so when you Google me it's just random things and there's like an old lady wearing a pink flowery dress that comes up when you Google Image Search me like it's never me.
I've given up. I mean, we what would you want to be on Google when people go do you what do you want to come out? What do I want to come out? If you could craft your first page of Google results what would you make?
I actually don't know. Because I've never really thought about it. But I guess I would want my my Instagram to come up.
I guess um, or do I want something more fun like my bank details so people can see me.
I mean, Instagram does come up first, which is good.
Actually. Yeah, I haven't googled myself in a long time. Oh, and I remember years ago when you used to Google mate came up with like, so cuz I'm because I'm from Perth. And over there. It's like transperth is the like public transport system. And I entered a competition classic made my one like a $12. Smart Radha which is like the Tap on top of card like a show like a Mikey lack of my key or like an Oyster card or whatever. And I won like and I had like a really small amount of money on it and that's what actually used to come up when you googled me it would be really tiny lodge like and my school next to it and yeah. Oh my LinkedIn comes up on my Twitter. That's not good.
Is that your SoundCloud as well? Yep, that's the Shan cloud.
Oh, I don't think there's anything on my SoundCloud
you gotta follow. Oh, oh, no, no one's following. What does it say one? Oh,
God. And then and there's say there's two things liked on there. And that's because there are two things that you can't get on Spotify. That's the only reason I have SoundCloud is so that I can like that flume Lord tennis club tennis court remix, because it's a real banger and you can't fight it's not on Spotify. Anyway.
Six years ago, oh my,
well, what was six years ago?
Your likes? Yeah, maybe not. Are they from six years? Yeah. Or when they were posted
six years ago, it might be six years ago because I've just liked those. And then I just kept listening to them when I remember old school. But like, it's actually really annoying that you can't put heaps of stuff. Like there's lots of stuff that's missing on Spotify. And there's actually not that much missing. But it's always like the one thing that you wish was there. You know, it is on Spotify, though. These podcasts. So I'm going to start talking about things and I'm going to remember that I'm actually working right now. Stop googling. And so we literally like on a Monday when we record this we like jump on the phone while on the zoom so that we can see each other because we're obviously not allowed to be together because There's a lock down. And like a crazy pandemic. I don't know if you've heard of it, but if you're just hearing about it now, you need to scoot over to like Corona cast because I literally, I cannot explain what's going on to you right now. I'm not an epidemiologist, like I can't help you. But we jump on the phone. And today I said to you, that I was in a real flap. And I was like, Do I seem really like and I actually feel like I'm still a bit over the top at the moment, when Normally I'm not as like,
what's the feeling flustered?
Well, I like to say that I'm in a flap and like, you know, when a chicken like freaks out and goes like this, like,
please don't use that video.
That's how I feel on the inside. I feel like a chicken that's going and it's because well, I did it. Half of what I did to myself but I have talked about how I live in an apartment building and that you know garriage Garage Gary Josh that there is like we have like a big cost stack so everything's really secure and you need to be able to like tap in like with little falls to tap into the garbage and you need to click out to like lift the roller door but the other week someone broke in to our gallery Josh and they like recently they on the other day, so this is Callaway sky Oh my God say I'm in such a flat then the other day they released like footage of the person who it is and said that they are actually like in the gallery Josh for like an extended period of time and they like had a weapon. And yet it's so relocked like it's so scary. And so I have just not been able to stop thinking about it and I I think it's like combined with lockdown that I'm like going a little bit stir crazy in the house. But because I work in breakfast radio, I wake up really early, and I'm the first person that go and I'm an essential worker. So I'm still working during the pandemic. But I'm the first person in the morning to like, go down and open up the garbage. And now I'm just freaked out that I'm going to go downstairs, and that there's like, gonna be someone down there. And like, last night, I just, like worked myself so much that I didn't sleep and then I like had to wake up at five o'clock for work, but I woke up at like, 330 I couldn't get back to sleep and I ended up like messaging one of the girls I work with to pick me up because I was just like, so freaked out. And, and yeah, I'm just feeling like really scared. And I get that right now. Everybody's really desperate because people like losing their jobs and, you know, there's so much going on, but it's just the worst feeling And like and then over the weekend well yesterday, I actually so Sunday, I watched I'll be gone in the dark on binge Have you watched that?
Oh, well, it was the worst fucking idea I think I've ever had the Golden State killer who? Yeah. Do you like know about Are you familiar with that story? So I have heard a bit about it well, so he this guy he like broke into people's houses and like harassed and like write women and stuff so it's a super heavy, but like it's very intense and it's very in depth and it's based on a book that this lady wrote who is patent as waltz has wife. Anyway, it's super intense. It's so fucking scary. And I was really scared on Friday Actually, this person like broke into our garage, and then I watched that and then I haven't slept and that's why today I'm in a flat and I'm like laughing about it, but I'm actually really scared. Like, isn't that so cool looked like so scary don't break into our area. Like,
it's like how do they know how how they getting in?
No. So it's just like the only part of the video that you say is like him sliding down from the top of like one of the carport bids but like he must have like come in with a car like during the dock during the talk in the dock like follow the car in and then like he didn't, but he was in there for like a while and it's just Oh, it's just like so gross. And yeah, that's why I made a bit of a flap I think because I'm just freaked out.
Like it's just yuck.
Yeah, you don't want that.
Is that too heavy for the podcast? Do you think should we check that out? That's okay. Do you reckon
Maybe let's reflect
and say what we think But, but yeah, and I just like, I know that it's a product of locked down and being stir crazy, like probably something like that would freak me out, but it wouldn't really bother me. But I think I'm actually starting to lose it a little bit. So, we're both in Melbourne, we're both still in full lockdown, and we're wearing masks everywhere. And we've got a curfew from 8pm to 5am. And I, like every person has gone through this kind of locked down at some stage, like everywhere I think is like, especially in New Zealand. I didn't even I couldn't even order food and stuff like that. And I I just like, I fuckin it's so hard. Like, do you have you really been struggling? Like, I know that you live with your family and your girlfriend? So it's like a lot of people in the house and
yeah, I mean, the it's, it's sort of, I reckon the tall, the tall. That's maintained. is probably from an energy perspective. Like it's, I'm, I'm just fatigued all the time. And so it's just, it's hard getting up and I wouldn't say like, I don't think I'm unhappy and I don't think I'm down. Like I'm still like having having my girlfriend here and being able to hang out with the family. It's like amazing. Yeah, that makes me happy. But yeah, I think the there's a heaviness and just like waking up and just going to do any task just because of everything that's happening.
And because you know that whatever you do that day is in the house. Like it's not as if you can message your mate and be like, hey, do you want to go for a walk or go to the beach or go out for dinner or something like this? Just there's no extension on like, what you can actually go and do. And like we've cleaned out our house about five times I've done like a full house claim that many times that there's actually nothing left to throw out and I've been like, To try and make the house more homely, we've been buying like, we bought like a new dinner set and like new cutlery and stuff, because we will act we want to just make our house really nice and comfortable so that we like enjoy being here. And we've just been buying like really random stuff and like burning candles and right now you can't say it, but I'm hanging flowers that I bought that I really like, you know how if you like hanging flowers upside down and let dry them out. You can like display them, but they don't die. They just like dry out. Really? Yeah. And before Yeah, I'll send you a photo. I can't I can't show you right now. But I'm like hanging flowers like Who am I like I sound like I'm in a Jane Austen novel or something. And I've reached the time when I'm hanging flowers in my house. Like I don't know what that accent was. I don't know if Jane Austen was even the right person. But um, and like I have this a Koi candle that A really good friend fun bought me when I moved from Sydney to Melbourne. And I just had to throw it out because it was like bent all the way down. And I know that you're a little bit younger than me. But did you? Was your mom ever obsessed with the shop? dusk? Yes, yeah, yeah, moms. Yeah. Can a lot
of dask Mother's Day.
Yep. Got it. And you know exactly what to do. And I, I remember it was like, probably two years, and my mom was like, she was obsessed with it. But I remember beforehand. And afterwards, she would like walk past the shop in the shopping centre and be like, oh, oh, oh, I can't possibly walk past there. Like, I hate the smell of that shop. And then I don't know one of the cool mums from school that I like one of the girls who I went to school with, obviously her mom was a bit cooler. And she said, I love dusk. I'm always burning candles and my mom was obsessed for literally two He is and then she just got over it like then she didn't really talk about candles anymore.
Yeah. It must be a phase of just like you realise a candles a candle.
Yeah, and you just over it. But it's funny cuz like mums and dads have money. When they get into something stupid, they like go super hard. You know? Like your mom will decide that she wants to like do quilling you know that like that thing where you like, curl up little bits of paper and like create
art with it. I think it's called quilling let me willing, I yeah, I'm pretty sure it's cold quilling my mom's getting into
drawing. Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah, so yeah,
yeah, like but you need like special tools. Or if your mom like gets super into cross stitch or something. She buy like heaps of sheep for it, like really good quality stuff. But then like, ditch it after a year or whatever. And I'm like, you've got all these awesome crops shoot and she's like, Oh, no, it's not really for me. More. I just always remember my mom getting into random things and I was like, I can't wait till I'm rich enough to like get super into a hobby like really hot out getting into a hobby and then just like forget about
Yeah, and but I feel like that's what people are doing in ISO though, like I feel like people are just like, they're not spending money on going out so they're spending money on like random hobbies like the other day. What this isn't even a hobby. It makes me sound interesting, but it isn't a hobby that I like. I like sleep bought clothes the other day Really? Yeah, like on the iconic like I was just scrolling through. And I was just like sitting there and I was just like, oh, that's quite cool. And then I bought it. Like, it was like, what's that thing called highway hypnosis where you like if you drive somewhere every day and then you don't need to think about like where you're going and they say that you'll actually kind of in a daze, but you just know when you need to change lanes and you know, like when you need to get off the highway and stuff. It was like that, like, I've just been buying so much stuff online that I was like, yeah, Apple Pay, like all good
Apple Pay. So he should
not say that I use Apple Pay can people get into my account is that I don't really understand how anything works. Like if I say that I use Apple Pay, can people find my money? Like, I don't have a PayPal account? Because I don't understand it.
That's okay, Apple Apple Pay will be fine.
Apple Pay is so good. And on the iconic. They take Apple Pay, and I think a sauce as well. So whenever I'm looking, I'm like, Oh, that's really great that I'm like, I can literally just double click my side button. And it's my
like, wait, wait did the same thing with a calming blanket. So we we got a we I think we go to quain and it's 12 kg, and it's the charcoal colour. And we saw like $120 discount code and we say All right, we're getting it. So on the website. Looking at double tap Done.
So easy. Have you got the banker?
Yeah, we got it. It was so right. Yeah, it's so great. Like we're watching the delivery guy come with it on his shoulder just 12 kj just walking with it. It was so great and the drive sort of Stapes I would have been a solid effort
he gets in the driveway he's like gets to the door he's like walking sweat.
Yeah, but it's it's great. It does get warm. If you've got that and like a device you're doing it like it gets warm, but it's so lovely.
I think I really want to get one because it's actually so funny that you're talking about that. Because so in my in my flapped state this afternoon, my fake producer boyfriend tobes he was like maybe you should go and see if you can have a slate before you record the podcast with Peyton. Now I was like, okay, he obviously didn't say pacing because we've decided that you're in here so I'm lying. I'm literally lying to everybody that's listening. All three people that are listening know that. I'm not
Are you doing that gets a big laugh than any joke.
Um, and I was like getting into bed and I was like I really need to sleep. So I was like, Can you put both blankets on all? We don't share a blanket? sure I'd wait can't.
So, is it just too warm on one side?
Um, no. So we both have a queen donor. Because we both like to burrito ourselves. Oh, Greenway can actually be trusted to have to share a blanket and we went away on a holiday like a weekend away with two really good friends of ours another couple and we were in our room and I was like, there's only one Blanca here like what the fuck are we gonna do? And I you know how when you do things when you're like trying to pretend you're okay with it, but you're being really passive aggressive and like you Tonight tobs had rode himself up into the blanket, and I got up and got a towel and like waited for him to wake up and I was like, it's fine. Like, I'm really warm. I've got this towel on like, but I had to get this towel like super dramatic. And he was like, mate, why don't you just wake me up? Tell me like yank the blanket off me. I'm like, Oh no, it's fine. I've got this towel on me. It's so warm.
so I have to sleep with two blankets if I'm feeling super anxious because it calms me, but I think that I should get a weighted blanket.
Yeah, I would say if it's just if you if you can get one Ah, you could probably get like a I think that like nine kg or seven kg.
really heavy, isn't it?
Yeah, you are you up and down? Like you
actually feel like like prop Yeah,
yeah. Yeah, held down. Like to get up. It's a it's like you do notice it
like so. Like a baby like how you made your arm? Yeah.
Well, cuz I've it I wanted to. I mean, cuz I'm I run quite warm. Yep. And my girlfriend runs quite cold and so at night I love having the window open and having the freezing cold air in there. Yeah, I'm like that and then she's phrasing and so i i think i should I think I should sell in the two to two days
I honestly I write it because we used to like not sleep that well together like we've we've lived together for ages now we've been together for like seven years or something. Actually seven years like next month and yeah, we will like we would always argue like about about it like we would get like really frustrated with each other in the night. And then I think we were we was somewhere and there was like two blankets here and I was like, oh naughty, like I'm gonna have my own blanket. You can have your own blanket. And it's just become a thing like and now we can't share. Really no How do you make the bed? So we're just like, um, like I don't know what it's actually called we call it shankle you know when you like
yeah yeah when you when you when you when you like get up and it yeah when it gets all the air underneath and then it spreads out
Yeah, yeah Yeah. What is that?
Find out? Does that have a name because we say Shawn Cole so when I'm hopping into bed tubes will be like Jimmy to shampoo your blankets for you and then he like whips it. The blanket.
That was a graphic I'm cutting that out.
This is hot. What do you even? Yeah, what do you Google I'm
throwing your Duna
how to recycle your donor not
making a bed.
Either recycle a donor because
You know exactly what I'm talking about. Right? Because like, yeah, like shimmies down inside the coop cover and you need to
find it's got the same, they just say put it on.
I feel like I could patent shankle
I'm just gonna shankle it. I think that's what it's called shymko Actually, let's see if we can make this a thing. If you listen to this podcast, and then you Shawn call, you're doing a cover and your donor Tell us about it. That's not interesting. Do you think that that when they're making their bed that they'll send us video of them showing cooling
off for sure. But what is it shampoo shampoo?
I don't know. It's just what other people call that's what I mean. I can we make sure uncle a thing because
Cuz that's just what we call like, it's just like a dumb word. It's like when I'm feeling really grumpy tobs will say are you feeling sprinkle? gronk my it's just you know how you have words for stuff that's just like, like when you just feel like
like you just and he'll be like you filling screen cool grown can be like generous. Mm hmm. Cuz I'm not angry. I'm not fucked off, but I'm just like,
I don't I feel like schinkel is gonna take off. I wonder what happens if you google Shawn Cole?
How are you spell it? h un Kaylee. So
I just spelled es se HUNK la shankle and some old German people dancing has come up which I absolutely love. Oh,
it's uh oh, it's actually German Welsh
is Funko Dom shankle meet Mia. Then
sway. Oh, it's in a song. Really? I reckon
shingled yet. I'm going with Uncle, uncle. Um, we have talked about Shanklin for quite
Oh, I don't I don't think that I'm gonna get to what I was going to talk about today because we've talked about quite a while.
I'm like actually disappointed with myself. I talked about shingling for so long.
Now, what can we talk about
pullets taken up all of our time. I'm actually at a loss because this is that I was going to talk about is going to take longer than how long have we been talking for
Oh, well, I'm not gonna be able to get in what I was going to talk about.
Oh, well now What should we do?
I mean, what did you want to cover? Well, so
people seemed to really dig the getting to know me part of the podcast, which I thought was really cool because I love to talk about myself, who doesn't I've just created a new word, and very in vogue. And I was going to talk about like, my work journey, like how I got my job and like, what I studied at uni and stuff, but now I feel like I can't do that in.
What do you do? Do you think people don't want to know that? No, I want to know, oh, well, who should I do? Should I talk about It's gonna be a really long podcast if we do it now.
That's okay. We can do it now.
Oh, I feel like now there's so much pressure cuz What if the chat is shocking and people like, stop the Shunk?
Well, your head
Oh, well, yeah, literally that's it so I people have been messaging me about like how I got my job. So because I work at Jason PJ in Melbourne, which is probably how you found this podcast To be honest, that you black Jason, PJ, and you liked me enough to give this a cheeky follow and then you loved it, because that's what's happened to us. We've just loved it. And yeah, like I get a few questions about where how I got into my job and stuff. So I thought that I would talk about that, but I'm really nervous. Now. I feel like I've really built it up. But I'll do a short version. Because I know that we're running, we're running quite behind. We're not really running behind. Wait, we create. Exactly. We create our own schedule. But so like when I was at school on going really far back, I was super into music and stuff. And I played the flute and I studied opera. So I always did singing. I was the choir captain, I went to band camp, you know, like a real dog. And it's written all of my face, to be honest, like, I have a fringe and glasses and I'm 26 years old, like, I was obviously a dog at school. And then, yeah, like I really wanted to be an opera singer for ages. And then I ended up applying to uni to study sound engineering. It's like cutting audio and making sounds for Theatre and Film and Tavi and all that kind of thing at wapa in Deborah, so it's Western Australian Academy. Performing Arts. So I actually went to an art school like the one from raise your voice. Have you seen that Hillary def movie? No. Okay.
One to add to the list.
But yes, I studied sound engineering, which makes me sound a lot smarter than I am. It's really it's really not that difficult. And I wanted to be an audiologist like I wanted to be an ear doctor. Really? Yeah. So I wanted to go and study audiology and like because my nephew who I'm very very close with, he is quite deaf. And, and yet, just like fascinates me, and I realised that there wasn't much wasn't much room for deaf people in media and entertainment, and I just wanted to see what I could do and like see Yeah, like what, what research I could do or like how I could help people to hear and, and all of that because like obviously my love of music is what led me to want to do be a sound engineer and want to study that kind of thing. So yeah, I really wanted to like give that to as many people as I could and and I was writing an extra jaysus which is like a little tiny thesis it's not nearly as long and then I got offered a job in radio like someone called me and they were like, Hey, we really really like you and we know a lecture of yours like would you became on this job for heat FM and triple m in Bumbry, which is like regional radio in wha. And I was like, Oh, I don't I don't really know anything about it. And I ended up like taking the job and I was like, I can go back to my studies another time. Got my whole life ahead of me and yeah, So I ended up in radio like totally by accident. And it's actually quite fitting because regional radio actually like there was heaps of cuts last week like lots of regional breakfast shows. They they got caught, which is so sad because I obviously started in regional radio. So it's like, it's just really horrible that people aren't gonna get some of the opportunities that like I got and I'm where I am now because of that, and it's just it's really sucky. But yes, so I started making making ads for the radio station and I was literally just like, I learned to voice like, I want to be a voiceover artist. And then I was making ads which is like so much fun. I absolutely loved it. And I did that for about a year and then I moved into a another job called imaging which is where you like, making promos and and opening As an older zip zap stuff that you hear on the radio, and then I yeah, I did that for six months. And I absolutely I loved it so much. And all I wanted to do was move to Melbourne. And the whole time that I'd been in Bumbry making ads and doing imaging. I'd been watching Jason PJ's videos on Facebook, and I was obsessed with them. And when I found out that they were moving to Melbourne, they needed an audio person and I was like, that's gonna be me. It's gonna maymay that song. And I was like, I'm gonna get that job. Like, if it's the last thing that I do, and I applied for it, and I didn't get it and and then I code like the radio station, called me and now we're like, actually, we like you for a different job in CD. So I ended up moving to Sydney and I lived in Sydney for all of six months before I ended up getting the job in Melbourne. with Jason PJ so someone ended up leaving and a few things shuffled around. And I ended up getting the job within Shawnee. So that's a like, obviously incredibly abridged version because I'm, I'm a kid that we talked about Shawn calling for a long time. But yes, so I, when I moved into radio, like I just realised, like I loved it so much. And yeah, and I still I still love it. I absolutely love my job. So I know that again, most people that are listening to this would have come from Jason page a, but you should subscribe to that podcast, not only because I make it, but because it's really good that they're the best in the biz. I totally believe that. And this isn't just like some wine cough so that they'll like give me a pay rise or something like I genuinely love them. But yeah, so I'm absolutely loved my sad little story. That's how that's why I'm here.
And they thought that I was funny enough to start doing stuff with them and like making videos for them online which is so fun. And then I thought you know what I'm I'm, I'm blowing up. I need my own outlet and that's why we're here listening and making this podcast that gets one download per episode.
Oh, hang on here
on this one.
I love my job.
Right. That's amazing. I really
But yeah, that's that's actually it.
I don't know if people want to hear that. I felt like maybe people would.
I mean, they asked.
They did ask well, you know It's like a from an influence it says I certainly many people how I surround my skincare routine. I've literally got one message from my sister and it's like, oh, you should talk about how you started me, right? Yeah. And I've like decided that
so many questions. Everyone's been asking,
oh, everybody's been messaging me about what t shirt brand This is. It's from a sauce. It cost me probably $6 these glasses Oh my god, stop asking me everybody but they ask a wily, I know very stylish. No one asked me about my glasses. And because you're the only person that saved me today, so
and you never asked me that.
Which is fine.
That's actually all I had written down. I like seems like it's coming to a really abrupt end but that's all Got. Oh, well, you had that big story that you wanted to talk about. My son pisin Oh, you have that story that you want us to talk about pisin
thing? Yeah, that's
huge story. Yeah. Big news for you. Isn't it?
massive news? Yep. I'm getting into cooking. Oh,
actually love that cake talking about it.
Yep. Well, so I've I've recently discovered this book called Simple by Joe Tim otter. Lenny. I think his name is amazing. And this is not sponsored by Why not? Would be nice. I think Yeah, but it's it's a I think it's probably like middle it's a mix of like Middle Eastern cuisine with sort of like a few others in there. But every every Sunday night. My girlfriend and I we've we've got cooked night for the family and Last Friday we did a cook along so I've just been in in the kitchen a lot burning burning myself in my hands. So last night like
is there lots of basics in there? Like it's you know i have is some cookbooks that talk about like the good basis of sauces and things like that. So when you're actually learning to cook it's like lots of really good tips.
Well, it's it's actually more of like, you just get the whole dish. Like this is not like he is a great source. It's more just like he's a great dish. And so last night, I ended up I had lots of chilli on my things that I simply like it was touching my nose he touched your penis.
Digi touch she paints with all the chilli on there I touch
something on my head. No, it was no I touch my nose and so my nose was all skinny but they've we've cooked I think probably four weeks in a row. Now we probably do like four dishes a night for dishes every Sunday night and all of that A bank right, and they're very cool. They come out with heaps of flavour. And they're very, they're quite simple dishes like a few steps, but like the very easy steps is nothing complicated. I start with them
that I'm not so good. And it's like a fun thing that you can do like dinner parties, because you've obviously already got a house full of people that already need to ate. So it's like a good excuse. But I feel like the cookbook thing is kind of like, like, and I know that people bring out cookbooks all the time, so I'm not gonna say it's like a dead because I don't actually believe that. But I feel like like because my mom had hundreds of cookbooks like proper sequins like she had every fucking Jamie all of a cookbook and, and you know, all that stuff. And I feel Yeah, and I feel like people just don't really do that anymore. But I follow so many chefs that I absolutely adore. Like, I am obsessed with this chick Alison Roman. If you haven't seen her, she it, go to her Instagram right now. She's cool and quirky. She's the reason I started wearing red now Polish like, I'm obsessed with her. And I just I love everything that she does. And I've got both of her cookbooks because I was like, I just love everything that you're about. And she's got a couple of recipes like go viral. And she's amazing. So she's like a New York Times food writer. And I literally I am obsessed with her. I wish that I was here. Last week I talked about wishing that I was a foster Blake, and this week I'm talking about wishing I was Alison Roman, cuz she's so cool. Have you just googled her? Yeah, the food looks incredible. She is amazing. She's got literally go and check out her recipes because she's so fucking cool. There's like a whole YouTube series of her like viral dishes from New York Times food and She just like cooks in her cool little New York apartment and like talks about going down to the market and like just cool stuff she's just like a really cool person. You know when you say people that I talk about this a lot but you know when you say people that you just like wish that your life was that like effortlessly cool like you feel like they get out of bed in the morning, and like their clothes are like bought on over to them by like little birds and like when they wear like a disgusting outfit, all of a sudden, that's cool. And then everybody starts wearing that outfit. And I feel like her and Zoe foster Blake are both people like that. Like they've got something about them that it just Sean's just cool factor. It's a real woman crush chat, I think but it's just like
powerful women, you know that like a good at stuff.
