51 minutes 3 seconds

Speaker 1

00:00:00 - 00:00:03

Right, let's get an update on the weather. Lewis, how's it looking?

Speaker 2

00:00:03 - 00:00:22

It's grand Aoife! Plenty of wet and lots of wind, which is why I'm currently kayaking down the Liffey. The good news is it's lashing again tomorrow, and with 50mph winds, it's a cracking day for surfing! Looking at the week ahead, it's roasting! So I'd head down to the beach for a dip in the sea and a barbecue with the lads!

Speaker 3

00:00:22 - 00:00:24

Well, I'd like a glass of what he's having.

Speaker 2

00:00:24 - 00:00:28

Can, Aoife! Red Bull comes in a can, and it gives you wings!

Speaker 4

00:00:30 - 00:00:50

Hey guys, and welcome to another episode of the JRE Review. This week, we are talking about Joe's conversations with the legendary Theo Vaughn. Wow were they all over the place. Hilarious as always. And also we have the director of John Wick 4, Chad Stahelski.

Speaker 4

00:00:51 - 00:01:03

Pretty sure that's how you say it. What a legend. What a legend he was. And I still haven't seen John Wick 4 yet, but I can't wait. Joined as always by my co-host Todd.

Speaker 4

00:01:03 - 00:01:04

How you doing, bud?

Speaker 5

00:01:04 - 00:01:05

I'm great, buddy.

Speaker 4

00:01:05 - 00:01:08

All right. You done some smelling salts today already?

Speaker 5

00:01:08 - 00:01:08

3 in a row.

Speaker 4

00:01:08 - 00:01:11

Love that. All right, let's get this show started.

Speaker 6

00:01:11 - 00:01:30

You are listening to the Joe Rogan Experience Review Podcast. We find little nuggets, treasures, valuable pieces of gold in the Joe Rogan experience Podcast and pass them on to you perhaps expand a little bit We are not associated with Joe Rogan in any way think of us as the talking dead to Joe's walking dead

Speaker 7

00:01:30 - 00:01:33

You're listening to the Joe Rogan Experience Review.

Speaker 4

00:01:33 - 00:01:35

What a bizarre thing we've created.

Speaker 7

00:01:35 - 00:01:37

Now with your host, Adam Thorne.

Speaker 2

00:01:37 - 00:01:40

This might either be the worst podcast or the best 1 of

Speaker 4

00:01:40 - 00:01:48

all time. 1, go. Enjoy the show. Alright, Theo Vaughn. What a wacky character.

Speaker 4

00:01:49 - 00:01:50

You gotta love him. You gotta love him.

Speaker 5

00:01:50 - 00:01:53

I don't even, my notes don't even make sense, dude.

Speaker 4

00:01:53 - 00:02:08

Obviously the smell and salts came out again. This is kind of that thing. How many smelling salts do you think have been sold because of the episode with Theo and Rogan. I know that's why we bought them. Of course it is.

Speaker 4

00:02:08 - 00:02:10

Yeah. Because we're easily influenced. Yeah.

Speaker 5

00:02:10 - 00:02:13

Yeah. I would say millions.

Speaker 4

00:02:13 - 00:02:15

Millions of smell and salt.

Speaker 5

00:02:15 - 00:02:15

We should

Speaker 4

00:02:15 - 00:02:20

have got some stock. Should have got some smelling salt stock. Is that a thing? I think it is.

Speaker 5

00:02:20 - 00:02:22

It works well. I love it that

Speaker 4

00:02:22 - 00:02:41

he made it down to the comedy mothership. Obviously, he loves it. Just had the best time. There was kind of a, what would you call it, a bit of a joke early on, kind of backhanded that was razzing if you're 35 and dating a 17 year old you can't be a comedian anymore.

Speaker 5

00:02:42 - 00:02:43

Or you're just super creepy.

Speaker 4

00:02:44 - 00:02:55

Well as a sneaky little blow on Chris the Lea, I think. Whoops. Whoops. I mean, it's pretty obvious in that world, but yeah, he's Crispin.

Speaker 5

00:02:56 - 00:03:08

He's a naughty boy. To Joe's point, if you're a 17-year-old male and you bone your teacher, who's let's say

Speaker 1

00:03:08 - 00:03:08

30

Speaker 5

00:03:08 - 00:03:12

or 35, there's nothing wrong with that. She just gets a slap on the wrist.

Speaker 4

00:03:12 - 00:03:16

Yeah. It does seem worse the other way around.

Speaker 5

00:03:16 - 00:03:21

And gets fired, you know, she'll get fired from her job. But all of his buddies are high-fiving him in the hallway, that's for sure.

Speaker 4

00:03:22 - 00:03:28

She's still gonna get put on like a sex offenders list though. Still gonna tell all her neighbors when she moves somewhere.

Speaker 5

00:03:28 - 00:03:29

Not going to prison though.

Speaker 4

00:03:29 - 00:03:33

It doesn't seem as creepy somehow. Yeah, that's a double standard.

Speaker 5

00:03:33 - 00:03:47

I mean, it's just weird. Yeah. I give it a weird, maybe less creepy, but just, I mean, it's just weird all around. Any, anyone who's 35 and wants to hang out with a 17 or 18 year old. Do you think there's like

Speaker 4

00:03:47 - 00:03:59

some sort of like developmental problem? Like they're just like weirdly mature or are they like trying to relive some high school moment that they did? I don't even

Speaker 5

00:03:59 - 00:04:01

know. I think it's probably a bit of both but yeah who knows.

Speaker 4

00:04:01 - 00:04:05

Yeah come on teachers. All right just teach them. Just teach them some math.

Speaker 5

00:04:05 - 00:04:14

But yeah all over the board here we got orca attacks, We got monkeys throwing dogs off roofs. We're talking about Roseanne getting nailed by cars.

Speaker 4

00:04:15 - 00:04:20

Yeah. Monkeys killing those dogs was interesting. Will you shut your laptop up, dude?

Speaker 5

00:04:20 - 00:04:21

It's shut.

Speaker 4

00:04:21 - 00:04:32

God, geez. Apple Macs. Yeah, so these couple of monkeys, I guess a dog attacked 1 of them, and they just went on a rampage and killed, like, all the dogs. That's pretty savage.

Speaker 5

00:04:33 - 00:04:35

Yeah, don't mess with monkeys, dogs.

Speaker 4

00:04:35 - 00:04:37

How do you think monkeys killed dogs?

Speaker 5

00:04:38 - 00:04:39

Just they throw them off the roof.

Speaker 4

00:04:39 - 00:04:41

Oh, they just carry them up there and chuck them?

Speaker 5

00:04:41 - 00:04:45

Yeah, they were taking little dogs and carrying them up to the roof and just chucking them off.

Speaker 4

00:04:45 - 00:04:48

Oh, so it was like the babies. Yeah, just give them the baby dogs

Speaker 5

00:04:48 - 00:04:51

Before they grow up to kill the monkeys. Small enough dogs. Yeah. Yeah.

Speaker 4

00:04:51 - 00:04:55

Well monkeys are strong They probably carry all sorts of stuff up on a roof.

Speaker 5

00:04:55 - 00:04:57

Yeah more than bananas. That's for sure.

Speaker 4

00:04:57 - 00:05:20

And yeah, and these orca attacks on boats. So I guess they've been paying attention to this for about 3 or 4 years, and now it's kind of getting out of control. It's like some orca out there they think may have got hit by a boat, and is like now telling all the other ones, training them, and now they're just, they're going nuts. Training them to

Speaker 5

00:05:20 - 00:05:23

hit the rudder so that the boat tips over and sinks

Speaker 4

00:05:24 - 00:05:26

nuts Yeah, smart whales man. Wow, they are smart.

Speaker 5

00:05:26 - 00:05:28

We always knew whales were smart

Speaker 4

00:05:28 - 00:05:39

Yeah, and if they if they want to turn against us, we're gonna be in big trouble. You know? Imagine if blue whales, all the... What is it, sperm whales? What are the ones that...

Speaker 5

00:05:39 - 00:05:40

They're the biggest ones.

Speaker 4

00:05:40 - 00:05:47

They do the bubbles and then just all come up and they like eat a kayaker by accident. Which ones are those? Humpback?

Speaker 5

00:05:47 - 00:05:53

I thought that was an orca, which is a humpback, yeah. Okay. Which this is the, yeah, same type. Yeah. Oh.

Speaker 5

00:05:53 - 00:05:54

The ones that

Speaker 4

00:05:54 - 00:05:55

look, they have the white spots.

Speaker 5

00:05:55 - 00:05:55

I thought

Speaker 4

00:05:55 - 00:05:57

orcas were like killer whales.

Speaker 5

00:05:57 - 00:05:59

Yeah, it's the same as a humpback, isn't it?

Speaker 4

00:05:59 - 00:06:01

No, Humpbacks are way bigger.

Speaker 5

00:06:01 - 00:06:01

Okay.

Speaker 4

00:06:01 - 00:06:07

Yeah, either way those ones could fuck up some boats We gotta watch out pretty clear the ocean

Speaker 5

00:06:08 - 00:06:09

the animals are getting smart.

Speaker 4

00:06:09 - 00:06:13

Yeah Well, I think it's mine and they starting to hate us

Speaker 5

00:06:13 - 00:06:15

good for them. I'd hate us too

Speaker 4

00:06:18 - 00:06:19

I'm team human.

Speaker 5

00:06:20 - 00:06:21

I'm This 1.

Speaker 4

00:06:21 - 00:06:30

Thank you team humpback. Yep team humpback. Love that. What about Joe's revelation on mushrooms? That was kind of cool.

Speaker 4

00:06:30 - 00:07:03

I was like, I don't know why I was like in the middle of writing a paper and I was super bored I didn't want to do it. So I like went for a walk just listen to some pods and it was out the back of Our place Todd and I live close together. There's that park over there Yeah, you know if you head out and the pond. And I was just walking around there and he's talking to Theo and he's like, yeah, I had this revelation on mushrooms recently where it was like, I could just feel this certain frequency that I was in that was really good. It just felt like the best way you can feel.

Speaker 4

00:07:05 - 00:07:33

And I don't know if people were offering drinks or he was thinking of having 1, but either way there was some message that was like, hey, if you have a drink right now it's going to kick you out of this frequency. And then, you know, everything's gonna change for right now. So he decided not to, he just enjoyed it. And it does make you think on those days when you're, I don't know, in a bit of a funk or you find yourself like in a really good place. It's like, what is that?

Speaker 4

00:07:33 - 00:07:45

I wonder if that is ever measurable, like Theo was saying. Like 1 day you'll have a whoop strap or a, you know, Fitbit. And it's just like, yeah, it just can like guide you into that zone.

Speaker 5

00:07:46 - 00:07:51

I mean, aren't you and I mostly in that zone? And then there's like a week of manstration that I like to call it.

Speaker 4

00:07:51 - 00:07:53

Yeah. Full moon.

Speaker 5

00:07:53 - 00:07:54

It's a full moon.

Speaker 4

00:07:54 - 00:07:56

It's a full moon. We haven't had enough sunlight.

Speaker 5

00:07:56 - 00:08:15

Tides are strange. It's raining too much. But all those other days, there is something going on where I am feeling more happy and more excited and my brain's working faster. I never thought of it as a frequency, but it makes sense. It's like that's what the earth gives us, right?

Speaker 5

00:08:15 - 00:08:19

We're all just energy moving around at a certain rate. Right.

Speaker 4

00:08:19 - 00:08:33

But you know, it also highlights like what gets you there? Like what helps? Are we all supposed to be on some sort of low dose mushroom protocol? Or, You know, what is it that adjusts those things?

Speaker 5

00:08:34 - 00:09:09

Yeah, and it is strange to think that the you know Huberman talks about how only these macro doses are really kind of get you back to square 1 and grow right grow the Neurons the neurons in your brain, but they're saying that the low doses of mushrooms, which I don't particularly agree that this is true, but I'm no scientist, they were saying that that doesn't do much for depression and keeping you happy. I feel like when I'm on a low dose of mushrooms, I feel way better. I'm a little bit more smiley. You know, you don't really feel it. It sounded like Joe was on more than a low dose that day though.

Speaker 4

00:09:09 - 00:09:13

Yeah, well it certainly is true that you're not a scientist. Right. And neither am I.

Speaker 5

00:09:13 - 00:09:16

But don't you feel better when you're on a low dose of mushrooms?

Speaker 4

00:09:16 - 00:09:35

Very small? Yeah, you can have a good time with low dose ones. I mean, it definitely takes, you know, it's like the difference between a couple of beers and 10 beers, you know? You can have a good time on both. I think what Hugh Bowman was saying about the high dose or heroic dose, which is like, I don't know, above 4 grams or 4 and a half or something.

Speaker 5

00:09:35 - 00:09:36

3 and a half.

Speaker 4

00:09:36 - 00:09:48

That's like a big blast to like reset you and can really help with depression. Right. Assuming you're not on some sort of SSRI or antidepressant, something like that.

Speaker 5

00:09:48 - 00:09:52

Yeah, you're not supposed to take psilocybin if you're on an antidepressant.

Speaker 4

00:09:52 - 00:09:58

Yeah, well, so what was Theo saying? He is on, he's on Zoloft, right?

Speaker 5

00:09:58 - 00:10:05

No, he's on, he is on, oh gosh, what's the other 1? Lexapro. Lexapro, thank you.

Speaker 4

00:10:05 - 00:10:06

Okay, okay.

Speaker 5

00:10:06 - 00:10:07

And I don't, he didn't

Speaker 4

00:10:07 - 00:10:08

say how long. Is that what you're taking?

Speaker 5

00:10:08 - 00:10:09

Yep, that's what I take

Speaker 4

00:10:09 - 00:10:24

you take that too. Okay, so yeah kind of keeps him Feeling somewhat. What was he saying? Like normal? I guess he's saying that when he's not on it, there's just certain days that it's like too much work to like, get

Speaker 5

00:10:24 - 00:10:33

himself straight. Yeah, he mentioned that. For me, it keeps me more even keel, right? The down days are less down.

Speaker 4

00:10:35 - 00:11:08

Speaker 4

00:12:11 - 00:12:23

That was fascinating to me. There's like a lot going on with Theo always, right? He doesn't really speak like normal people. No. You know, it's why his comedy is so unusual.

Speaker 5

00:12:24 - 00:12:25

Because he's all over the place.

Speaker 4

00:12:25 - 00:12:43

Well, I think it's just different. Like, there's a thing, I think it's called, like, synesthesia, which is something that is similar to what can happen when you take acid, right? You can like smell a color, right? Or see a sound, they kind of describe it like that. And they say some people have this in regular life.

Speaker 4

00:12:43 - 00:12:59

You know, they like, And it helps them, it kind of changes language. Like there was a thought that Shakespeare had that. That's why his metaphors are so good. Because he saw it in a different way. And, you know, I've always felt like Theo has something like that.

Speaker 4

00:12:59 - 00:13:20

That's why he can just say some of the wackiest things. I mean, honestly, some of the best shit he's ever said is on his podcast and it's like that. He just thinks of it, says it, it's like this wacky idea, cracks everyone up. Maybe he needs that time to like kind of slow himself down and like make sense of where his thoughts are, what he's thinking.

Speaker 5

00:13:20 - 00:13:27

Did he explain why he did that? It was just because he wanted it to be... He just wanted to have 0 distractions, right? I think

Speaker 4

00:13:27 - 00:13:37

so, yeah. And... It might just be that. It might just be that, and maybe it's just good for everybody to do something like that. But, um...

Speaker 5

00:13:38 - 00:13:43

Well, it was great to see the standing ovation. We saw that. We watched.

Speaker 4

00:13:43 - 00:13:46

Oh, yeah. We watched Theo. When he went into the mothership?

Speaker 5

00:13:46 - 00:13:47

On to the mothership.

Speaker 4

00:13:47 - 00:13:47

Well, it

Speaker 5

00:13:47 - 00:13:48

was a surprise.

Speaker 4

00:13:48 - 00:13:49

They didn't know he was gonna be there.

Speaker 5

00:13:49 - 00:14:18

They had no idea he was gonna be there. I mean, that's gotta feel great. Just the 2 of them talking about how crazy it is, and this happens a lot when the comics come on, obviously. That always go back to how Joe can't believe it's real and how amazing it is. But it's just, I just love seeing his buddies on, just kind of see the camaraderie that's happening between him and all of his comic friends and how they're all getting such a boost from not only the show but the mothership and also going and doing their own things.

Speaker 5

00:14:18 - 00:14:31

I mean, and they can just sit and rant for 2 hours about, I mean, absolutely nothing. Yeah. I mean, they were all over the board, dude. How many of your notes are just like the most random shit?

Speaker 4

00:14:31 - 00:15:19

I have a lot of question marks next to things that they said for sure, but it was very entertaining. Like it always is. I loved hearing their story, Joey Diaz going up there and Joe talking about how really, uh, in the old comedy store, when, when Joey Diaz went on stage, it was like the comic that the other comics needed to see. And I've probably seen Joey perform in the comedy store, you know, he was there quite a lot, like maybe 10 times, and for sure, I've never laughed harder in like a short period of a stand-up than I have watching him perform. He can just take, it's like a tidal wave of energy, and some of the stuff that he's saying it's like nobody can get away with that.

Speaker 4

00:15:19 - 00:15:31

Nice. So it's so great to hear that he's gone back down there. I guess he only did 1 show, huh? They said that he was set up for 2, decided to just do 1. He was like, nah.

Speaker 5

00:15:31 - 00:15:33

Well, he's got a New York Times bestseller. No, he doesn't need

Speaker 4

00:15:33 - 00:15:37

it. Good point. Shout out to Joey. Well done. Dude.

Speaker 4

00:15:38 - 00:15:45

I had a good feeling that that book was gonna go to number 1. I still gotta buy it too. It's cool. I mean, I mean to. But good for him.

Speaker 4

00:15:45 - 00:15:47

That must feel good. Right?

Speaker 5

00:15:47 - 00:15:48

Yeah, it's incredible.

Speaker 4

00:15:48 - 00:15:49

Yeah. It's incredible.

Speaker 5

00:15:50 - 00:16:00

What did you think of the duck dicks? I'd never seen anything like that. I didn't know ducks had dicks. Or longer. Long, stringy, curly.

Speaker 5

00:16:00 - 00:16:01

It's like a corkscrew.

Speaker 4

00:16:02 - 00:16:03

What is going on there?

Speaker 5

00:16:04 - 00:16:06

I had no clue. Yeah, what do

Speaker 4

00:16:06 - 00:16:07

other birds have?

Speaker 5

00:16:08 - 00:16:10

I don't know man, that was something I learned.

Speaker 4

00:16:10 - 00:16:19

And yeah, Joe's saying it's a bit rapey to watch him. I didn't know there was so much excitement going on in the duck pond.

Speaker 5

00:16:19 - 00:16:26

No, lots going on there. You really, I mean, I don't even understand how it fits. How does it fit in?

Speaker 4

00:16:26 - 00:16:35

I don't know. They got like a decoy vagina too, Joe said. And a hundred... He seems to know a lot about duck anatomy.

Speaker 5

00:16:37 - 00:16:52

I mean, so Theo for a good 10 minutes couldn't get just big dicks out of his head. Yeah. And then they were showing photos of the 132 pound scrotum. I'd never seen anything like that either. That seems exhausting.

Speaker 5

00:16:52 - 00:16:55

There's a lot of random YouTube footage on this episode.

Speaker 4

00:16:55 - 00:16:58

Didn't they also show like the biggest dick in the world guy?

Speaker 5

00:16:58 - 00:17:03

Yeah, 13 inches. They talked about him. Didn't get to see the photo.

Speaker 4

00:17:03 - 00:17:13

I wonder if that guy passes out when he gets an erection. It's like he gets turned on and just like falls over in the mall. He just faints.

Speaker 5

00:17:13 - 00:17:16

Yeah. All the blood goes out of his head into his other head.

Speaker 4

00:17:16 - 00:17:20

Just every time. Yeah. Oh,

Speaker 5

00:17:20 - 00:17:44

man. Yeah, they got into the vaccine thing again, the Saker family stuff, right. About how they didn't go to jail. These are the guys that, you know, turned us all on to that, you know, the most hated drug in America and it kills everybody which is, oh gosh, I'm going to forget the name now, it's the opioid. Anyway.

Speaker 5

00:17:44 - 00:17:48

Yeah, what the hell is that? Son of a gun. Codeine. Well, it's oxycodone,

Speaker 4

00:17:48 - 00:17:50

thank you. Oxycodone, yeah. These

Speaker 5

00:17:50 - 00:18:00

guys, they just get fined. And I don't know how we're going to change the system here, other than people like Joe talking about it. How do you change the system? Because it just seems so rigged.

Speaker 4

00:18:01 - 00:18:14

Well, it seems like a good profit margin in a sense, right? Let's say that you host a big party and it's expensive. You got a band, you got caterers, you got all these things, and you make

Speaker 1

00:18:15 - 00:18:16

$100, 000.

Speaker 5

00:18:17 - 00:18:23

Well let's just put it into their terms. They made $12 billion and they had to give 5 back. That's what I mean.

Speaker 4

00:18:23 - 00:18:27

You still made 7. Right? So even if you look at a party where you make

Speaker 1

00:18:27 - 00:18:28

$100, 000,

Speaker 4

00:18:28 - 00:18:55

but you gotta pay $60, 000 to everybody involved you still made 40 right like and you know, yeah, there's no fines I mean, there's no like criminal time, you know, there's a bad press but how often does bad press really hit us in the media. I mean, these companies are sponsoring all the news and TV stuff anyway, newspapers.

Speaker 5

00:18:56 - 00:19:11

Here in New Zealand, they're not allowed to sponsor anything anywhere else, no television. None of these companies like Pfizer can sponsor anything other than in the United States and New Zealand. So that to me is the number 1 thing we gotta stop.

Speaker 4

00:19:12 - 00:19:23

That seems like a problem. It's a problem. It's not exactly de-incentivizing them to make products differently. They're just constantly getting away with literal murder.

Speaker 5

00:19:24 - 00:19:28

Yeah, and so is that money going to the families? We don't even know where that money's going.

Speaker 4

00:19:28 - 00:19:40

How did Joe describe it? It was like, um, something of responsibility. I forgot the word, but like, um, like a separation of responsibility.

Speaker 5

00:19:41 - 00:19:44

Well, yeah, I mean, well, they're not responsible. Cause they're not right there. At all.

Speaker 4

00:19:45 - 00:19:49

They're just on yachts and big houses and they're like, well, we're doing our best and some people get hurt.

Speaker 5

00:19:49 - 00:20:03

No, so he, he equated it to if you're in a large crowd and somebody is getting their ass kicked, right? If somebody is getting beat up in a large crowd, or if you're working for a large company and they're doing bad things, There's so many people doing it that you just you kind of go with it.

Speaker 4

00:20:03 - 00:20:04

That's it. Oh, diffusion.

Speaker 5

00:20:05 - 00:20:35

Yeah, it's a diffusion of responsibility. So if you were the only 1 doing it, if you were just 1 man or 1 woman and you created this company and you're the sole proprietor to this company doing all these bad things, yeah, you're gonna feel way worse. But if you're working for this brand, I mean, of course you're gonna feel bad, but I think that I think there's a lot to that. It's like, well, if everybody's doing it, no big deal. It's like you're in a crowd and no one's helping someone who's getting their ass kicked, okay, well, if they're not helping, I'm not going to help.

Speaker 5

00:20:35 - 00:20:56

But if you were there, you're getting beat up. Obviously, I'm going to help because you're my friend. But even if you were just in a crowd, if you weren't in a crowd of people, I did that to Adam last week. If it was just someone you didn't know and there was 3 of you and there's 2 guys beating up 1 person and the 3 of you are obviously gonna do something about it. You're not just gonna walk away.

Speaker 5

00:20:56 - 00:20:59

Right. Like 3 other people, strangers, yeah, you're gonna try to break it up.

Speaker 4

00:20:59 - 00:21:04

But if There's another 50 people there you might be like, well, just kind of watch how this turns out.

Speaker 5

00:21:04 - 00:21:05

Someone else will deal with it.

Speaker 4

00:21:05 - 00:21:27

Record it, put it on the gram. Right, you just kind of push it off to somebody else. This podcast is brought to you by Paint Your Life.

00:22:47 - 00:23:07

to get 20% off. Well, Theo was really getting worked up. And in fact, that might have been the most mad I've ever heard him be when he's talking about these companies, you know? I mean, maybe he's had some family that have been affected by this, I know that... Where was he?

Speaker 4

00:23:07 - 00:23:09

He's from Louisiana, right?

Speaker 5

00:23:10 - 00:23:10

And, you

Speaker 4

00:23:10 - 00:23:29

know, I mean, maybe in that area he saw some people really struggle with this stuff I know Joe has talked about having friends whose lives have gone off the rails for it. I mean, like Joe said, what did he have, like some sort of nose surgery, right?

Speaker 5

00:23:29 - 00:23:31

Yeah, he had deviated septum.

Speaker 4

00:23:31 - 00:23:53

And then his doctor's like, oh yeah, take this. Take this and all these 2 different medications and and you know that'll help and he's like how much does this hurt? It's like is it gonna get worse? Is it gonna be the same like you just didn't need it? Yeah, And it's so easy to see how people can get hooked on this stuff.

Speaker 4

00:23:53 - 00:24:07

I mean, if a doctor gives you something, and it's from the doctor, and it feels great, like, better than just the pain of whatever your nose is or your knee surgery or whatever, I mean, yeah, you might want to just keep doing it.

Speaker 5

00:24:07 - 00:24:26

It is a lot harder. It is a lot harder to get now, from what I've heard. It is. From friends that have knee surgeries and, you know, They're giving you, they're giving you, you know, different pain relievers instead of opioids nowadays because it is, it's become such an epidemic.

Speaker 4

00:24:26 - 00:24:27

It's probably a good move.

Speaker 5

00:24:27 - 00:24:44

Yeah, it is a good move and I think that, you know, there was a guy on, I can't think of his name, the drug, the guy who was selling drugs for Viagra. Remember that guy who was on? He was on Rogan. And he talked about how these doctors and the reps for the doctors would get steak dinners.

Speaker 4

00:24:45 - 00:24:46

Yeah, yeah. Golf clubs.

Speaker 5

00:24:46 - 00:24:46

Right.

Speaker 4

00:24:46 - 00:24:47

Chips to Hawaii.

Speaker 5

00:24:47 - 00:25:25

They would have to spend, you know, $5, 000 a week or whatever it was to you know, to pay off the doctors and the doctors would then help them out and anyway, it was it's all just a money thing and it's like he started to feel bad because everyone's kind of going with it and as soon as he decided, ah, this doesn't really feel right, if he said anything, all of his buddies that he's working with are like, fuck you, dude. Like, you just cut into our $5, 000 a week credit that we have to spend and we're having a great time, we don't give a crap about these patients. I mean, at the end of the day, it all comes down to the money that is being created from it.

Speaker 4

00:25:25 - 00:25:26

Yeah, dangerous.

Speaker 5

00:25:26 - 00:25:30

Right. Yeah. Nasty. And how do you stop that? I don't know.

Speaker 5

00:25:30 - 00:25:59

We talk about it all the time. Yeah. And it's with politicians and it's with drug companies and now they're all in cahoots and Joe talks about it all the time. These executives of drug companies are then now getting pushed into, you know, being CEOs and politicians or politicians are, you know, taking money from drug companies and then all of a sudden their political career is done and they end up being the CEO of Pfizer or whatever other company. Right.

Speaker 4

00:25:59 - 00:26:01

I know, That's what's so nasty about it though.

Speaker 5

00:26:01 - 00:26:05

It's like how is that? How is that real? And nobody talks about it.

Speaker 4

00:26:05 - 00:26:16

Theo has a lot of experience with addiction stuff and counseling and the therapy that comes with the AA and the other ones. Yeah, well he said

Speaker 5

00:26:16 - 00:26:18

he does the AA prayer every morning.

Speaker 4

00:26:18 - 00:26:59

Right, the serenity prayer. Yep. And you know, 1 thing he talks about with alcohol is he was like, it's like the only disease that tells you you're not sick, you know? And then he kind of said that Rogan in a way has redesigned being an addict He has like a good balance for it So there's a balance Though with some people It doesn't seem that way It seems like moderation is just like these drugs even alcohol has such claws in some people that there's no balance for them that they can maintain. It probably is just availability, but maybe not even that, like the strength of it.

Speaker 4

00:26:59 - 00:27:25

Imagine if you have this massive desire all the time to get drunk, I mean, you can just go into really any liquor store and buy the cheapest little thing of vodka, and it gets you there immediately. Right? It's like you and I prefer mostly drinking beers, right? Yeah, it takes kind of a lot of beers, often, to get pretty smashed. And you're just not putting the time in, right?

Speaker 5

00:27:25 - 00:27:28

Well, and I just hate being hungover, too. Well, that,

Speaker 4

00:27:28 - 00:27:29

yeah. Yeah, I

Speaker 5

00:27:29 - 00:27:32

mean, anytime I send it, I just hate myself the next day.

Speaker 4

00:27:32 - 00:27:33

Yeah, I hate

Speaker 5

00:27:33 - 00:27:37

you too. But yeah, some people, you just can't stop. Uh-uh.

Speaker 2

00:27:45 - 00:28:00

Which is why I'm currently kayaking down the Liffey. The good news is it's lashing again tomorrow, and with 50 mile per hour winds, it's a cracking day for surfing. Looking at the week ahead, it's roasting. So I'd head down to the beach for a dip in the sea and a barbecue with the lads.

Speaker 3

00:28:00 - 00:28:02

Well, I'd like a glass of what he's having.

Speaker 2

00:28:02 - 00:28:06

Can, Aoife! Red Bull comes in a can! And it gives you wings!

Sales subject to T's and C's. See stores for details.

Speaker 4

00:28:40 - 00:29:08

Yeah, and it's right there. And I think that's why it's good to have people like Theo that speak so clearly on it. You know, Russell Brand is another example that's like really open and honest about their experience with it and how they stick to it. And fair play to them. You know, sometimes I used to think That people that had to quit were like missing out, you know, or they just couldn't find a balance and that there was a better way But it's hard to say now.

Speaker 4

00:29:08 - 00:29:16

I'm not convinced I'm like, yeah, if you've identified that it's too much you gotta you gotta stop Get away

Speaker 5

00:29:17 - 00:29:29

Yeah, I mean I could see Theo getting way too drunk real quick just from the outtakes of him doing the freaking smelling salts. Yeah. He's like, give me another, give me another.

Speaker 4

00:29:30 - 00:29:40

He's only allowed a few drugs these days. Though, saying that, I think that it would have been really very fun to have partied with Theo back in the day. I bet he was an animal.

Speaker 5

00:29:41 - 00:29:41

But good

Speaker 4

00:29:41 - 00:29:55

for him for staying clean. What did you think about him having RFK on Kennedy and that pod? So Rogan has him on this week. I haven't heard that 1 yet, but we're reviewing it next week. Yeah, it sounds good.

Speaker 4

00:29:55 - 00:30:02

And I guess it broke 1 of the, violated some rules. Like, of course, Through YouTube, but it

Speaker 5

00:30:02 - 00:30:05

was the WHO. The COVID violation. Rule.

Speaker 4

00:30:05 - 00:30:31

And yeah, they demonetized it and it happened like way, way later. Do you think Theo is like, you know, he's, he's not really out there making like political stances on things. So this might've been a bit of a shock to him. I don't think he's had many really controversial, potentially controversial podcasts. I haven't heard his 1 with RFK, but you know, How bad could it have been?

Speaker 4

00:30:31 - 00:30:40

But just the fact that all those months later, YouTube just says, no, you know, are they doing themselves a disservice?

Speaker 5

00:30:41 - 00:30:55

It's just surprising. I mean, clearly YouTube is getting paid off by, you know, I don't know who their sponsors are, but it just saves them from getting some sort of lawsuit in the future, I guess. I don't know.

Speaker 4

00:30:56 - 00:31:28

Yeah, and then, you know, obviously he's talking about, you know, Joe brought up like the percentage of people that were affected by polio, how many were asymptomatic, yet everyone was getting that vaccine. And I don't think it hurts to be educated on anything. I think for the longest time, we just assumed that all vaccines were 100% good and had to be taken, and now people are asking different questions. And I don't see how just wanting to know is so bad. I really don't.

Speaker 4

00:31:28 - 00:31:32

The last thing I wanted to hit on, because we're kind of running over on Theo... Well, hold on.

Speaker 5

00:31:32 - 00:31:42

The polio thing, though, you gotta bring up the DDT part. Because what he was mentioning is that DDT could have been a cause of a lot of the symptoms that people were having. They have similar symptoms to polio.

Speaker 4

00:31:42 - 00:31:44

Yeah, something like that, right?

Speaker 5

00:31:44 - 00:31:48

And they were spraying that stuff all over the place. All over crops, all over... It's a pesticide.

Speaker 4

00:31:48 - 00:31:51

It's to get rid of the mosquitoes, right?

Speaker 5

00:31:51 - 00:31:55

Uh, whatever was screwing up the crops at the time that they were I don't think

Speaker 4

00:31:55 - 00:32:05

it was crops DDT was for I think it was for mosquitoes because of like malaria mosquito you know I've traveled okay I thought it was

Speaker 5

00:32:05 - 00:32:07

I thought it was for for crops.

Speaker 4

00:32:07 - 00:32:26

Well, you're not a scientist Maybe it is maybe maybe this but that shit was getting everywhere. They found that in like Freaking penguins in the North Pole man. It's like in everything the last bit on Theo which is something I wanted to talk to you about, that guy stuck upside down in that snowboard video. You see that?

Speaker 5

00:32:26 - 00:32:27

Oh yeah.

Speaker 4

00:32:27 - 00:32:27

Does that freak you out?

Speaker 5

00:32:27 - 00:32:28

I saw that when

Speaker 4

00:32:28 - 00:32:36

it came out. Now Todd's a big snowboarder. He runs the snowboard magazine up here in Bozeman called Bomb Snow Magazine. It's dope. Check it out.

Speaker 4

00:32:37 - 00:32:45

Check it out. Yeah, you know, you've been around this forever. Like, yeah. How does that hit you? Like, I see it and I'm like, fuck that.

Speaker 4

00:32:45 - 00:32:48

That's why I don't get very adventurous.

Speaker 5

00:32:50 - 00:33:26

I mean, I was so blown away that he came across that snowboard that was upside down. If you watch the video, the guy's skiing and he's from a completely separate party. He's skiing by himself, I think, but he has his GoPro on and it's on his chest and he's skiing through the woods and all of a sudden he like skis over somebody's snowboard and the snowboard is completely upside down in the snow. The guy's stuck in a tree well. He realizes after like 2 more turns, like, holy shit, I just skimmed over somebody's snowboard that was upside down.

Speaker 5

00:33:26 - 00:33:46

So he takes off his skis, he hikes back up the mountain, and you see all of this on video, and he starts carving out, I mean, he's like using his hands, he's digging out the snow as fast as he can and you can hear him breathing. He's freaking out. Yeah. This guy was, he was a good 5 feet deep in this tree well. This is at, I think it was at Mount Baker or somewhere in Washington.

Speaker 5

00:33:46 - 00:33:47

A lot of snow.

Speaker 4

00:33:47 - 00:33:49

Did it say how long he was upside down for?

Speaker 5

00:33:49 - 00:33:52

I don't think. I'm not sure if they would know.

Speaker 4

00:33:52 - 00:33:54

They could ask him afterwards.

Speaker 5

00:33:54 - 00:34:07

I mean, maybe he didn't know. He could have been, I would say he was under there, you know, it could have been anywhere from 5 minutes to 20 minutes. Who knows? Jesus. But either way, he would have died if that guy wasn't skiing.

Speaker 5

00:34:07 - 00:34:16

Right. And skied right over top of him. Yeah. And then you could see, I mean, the whole thing is on film, he digs out his air, you know, he digs out a hole right for, you know, for his airway.

Speaker 4

00:34:17 - 00:34:29

Now, Now let me ask you this, because you guys go up on the the ridge or whatever on Bridger, and you have the avalanche beacon or whatever, do you have to like push a button on it?

Speaker 5

00:34:30 - 00:34:33

You just keep it turned on and then so if someone were... Oh, people

Speaker 4

00:34:33 - 00:34:34

can find you?

Speaker 5

00:34:34 - 00:34:57

Yeah, so there's a frequency, right, that you that will beep if you're close to another, they call them beacons or transceivers, if you're if you're close to another transceiver you put it on transceive mode and you can hear it beep the closer you get so you kind of walk in a grid pattern until you hear another beep and then it'll show you how close you are it'll give you like the amount of meters away or feet away.

Speaker 4

00:34:57 - 00:35:01

So it doesn't like send a message to like ski patrol or a helicopter or something?

Speaker 5

00:35:02 - 00:35:12

No. Okay. No, that's a spot. Uh, that's like if you're way out in the back country, if you're not around a resort, you're going to use 1 of those spot things to call in like the search and rescue. Even if he

Speaker 4

00:35:12 - 00:35:16

had had 1 of those things that might not have helped him because nobody knew he was there.

Speaker 5

00:35:16 - 00:35:22

Well, even if they did, he, he's upside down in the snow. I mean, by the time you get to him, he's gonna be dead. He's gonna suffocate.

Speaker 4

00:35:22 - 00:35:23

Oh my god

Speaker 5

00:35:25 - 00:35:42

Yeah, the tree wells are really a scary thing because you get closer the closer you get to a tree they called a tree well because that all the snow kind of goes into that 1 spot, right, and it's kind of fluffy underneath the tree, and so when you hit it, you sink. Oh. Right? It's not really packed down because no one's like going over it

Speaker 4

00:35:42 - 00:35:43

because it's

Speaker 5

00:35:43 - 00:35:44

right at the edge of the tree.

Speaker 4

00:35:44 - 00:35:45

So he just fell into a hole.

Speaker 5

00:35:45 - 00:35:47

He just fell backwards upside down into 1.

Speaker 4

00:35:47 - 00:35:48

Yeah. Oh Jesus.

Speaker 5

00:35:48 - 00:35:57

So we don't have as much of that problem here in Montana. We don't get as much snow as they do in the in the West. You know, west of here in the Northwest.

Speaker 4

00:35:57 - 00:35:58

Mm-hmm.

Speaker 5

00:35:59 - 00:36:02

Anyway, it yeah that was an incredible video. I mean,

Speaker 4

00:36:02 - 00:36:03

thank God he was there.

Speaker 5

00:36:03 - 00:36:05

Somebody was looking out for that dude.

Speaker 4

00:36:05 - 00:36:08

Thank God he was there. All right. Well, fuck all that. Don't do it. Stay away from trees.

Speaker 4

00:36:08 - 00:36:16

They're bad when you're skiing. Just be real careful. Stick to the bunny slopes like me. No, Just kidding. Do what you need to.

Speaker 4

00:37:22 - 00:37:43

Alright, let's jump over to Chad. John Wick director, John Wick 4, what a legend. Stahelski. To think that they could do 4, um, 4 part, I mean, uh, movies, 4 movies, dude. With really like the most insane, um, violence ever.

Speaker 4

00:37:44 - 00:37:49

Keanu Reeves, Absolute legend. And this guy had never even directed a movie before.

Speaker 5

00:37:49 - 00:37:51

Yeah, pretty cool.

Speaker 4

00:37:51 - 00:37:54

Yeah. I wonder how you get into that position.

Speaker 5

00:37:54 - 00:37:59

So, did Stahelski direct all 4 of these, or just this last 1?

Speaker 4

00:37:59 - 00:37:59

No, it

Speaker 5

00:37:59 - 00:38:01

all- Because the writer changed.

Speaker 4

00:38:01 - 00:38:04

Yeah, but the writer is not the director. Right.

Speaker 5

00:38:04 - 00:38:18

Yeah, but that was interesting to me like that the writer of the John Wick stories is Derek Kallstad, but then the new, the fourth version, which is the 1 that came out that just came out, right? That was written by another person, Shea Batten.

Speaker 4

00:38:19 - 00:38:20

Yeah. So,

Speaker 5

00:38:21 - 00:38:36

I don't know, I wonder what happened there, maybe they bought the rights, somebody else bought the rights and... Might be. Either way. So Stahelski, he had directed other movies but this is kind of his breakthrough. These John Wick movies are his breakthrough movies.

Speaker 5

00:38:36 - 00:38:36

Yeah.

Speaker 4

00:38:36 - 00:38:42

Yeah. Yeah. And what did they say? He killed more people than he spoke words in this 1? Crazy.

Speaker 4

00:38:42 - 00:39:25

That's wild. Well, I think the big takeaway from this episode, which was so cool, is we all know Rogan, ever since the first, what is that, Sober October, where they had the Myzone straps and they were competing against each other to burn as much energy and get as much points as you can. Rogan and it's well known did like an insane day on the elliptical where he just watched the bath scene over and over again and you know just crushed it, Made like a ridiculous amount of points. I used to have 1 of those my zones and I tried like a really intense day once. I wasn't even close to what he did.

Speaker 4

00:39:25 - 00:39:27

Yeah, Rogan is a savage.

Speaker 5

00:39:27 - 00:39:29

Which just tells you how many calories you burned, right?

Speaker 4

00:39:29 - 00:39:46

Exactly. Or It's like output of energy based on your heart rate. Okay. So yeah, he just went fucking berserk and crushed it So he's been a big fan by the third John wick movie. They didn't have a muscle car in there, which is Something Rogan has talked about a lot.

Speaker 4

00:39:46 - 00:40:09

I think they had motorcycles mostly, but the yeah, there wasn't like a dedicated muscle car. And then Chad met him at Terran Tactical, met Rogan. I think that's what they met. And later when he got to Europe, text Rogan and was like, shit, what car do we need in this movie? What'd he say, a 71 Barracuda, I think?

Speaker 4

00:40:09 - 00:40:17

He even had a picture to send him immediately. They got the exact car for that movie. That's some influence, Rogan.

Speaker 5

00:40:17 - 00:40:18

It's pretty cool.

Speaker 4

00:40:18 - 00:40:24

And that's good influence, too. You know? It's not like he's fucking the movie up. He's definitely making it cooler.

Speaker 5

00:40:24 - 00:40:30

No, that car's sweet. Yeah. Hell yeah. What'd you think about all the blood scenes being CGI? I didn't realize that.

Speaker 4

00:40:31 - 00:40:34

Oh, you know, it kind of makes sense.

Speaker 5

00:40:34 - 00:40:36

I mean, so many bloods.

Speaker 4

00:40:36 - 00:41:06

Yeah. I think back to the last couple and I remember when they were talking about it, I think back to 2 and 3, I don't remember 1 as well. It's been a long time since I've seen it, but, but yeah, I mean, blood is like obviously flying out everywhere and I can't remember if it didn't look good, but I did notice there was like a lot of it You know just kind of hitting everybody and after we talked about the ward wardrobe changes Oh, yeah, and how much time that would take, I'm like, it makes sense. It's better you guys do it that way for sure.

Speaker 5

00:41:06 - 00:41:13

I gotta give it up to Tarantino though for never using that. Yeah, he's old school. Always using the blood blood packs.

Speaker 4

00:41:13 - 00:41:24

Yeah, he's old school. You think he did that for Kill Bill? Dude, that movie is like the most insanely gory movie of all time. Yeah, it's awesome. Yeah, it's brilliant.

Speaker 4

00:41:25 - 00:41:28

Such a good flick. Samurai scene, such a good flick. Out of control.

Speaker 5

00:41:29 - 00:41:38

And then the Dogs being trained to attack the color green. That was cool. You do like the green screen So then you can do a CGI with the right that would be the point of that.

Speaker 4

00:41:38 - 00:41:38

I think that's the point

Speaker 5

00:41:38 - 00:41:46

Yeah, so whatever is green you can then put in some gory fake, you know Limbs and arms getting cut off and bit into

Speaker 4

00:41:46 - 00:41:59

yeah What do you do with a dog that's been trained to attack people's nuts after a movie's finished? It seems like that's way too much of a liability to have around. What was that? What was that movie? Uh,

Speaker 5

00:42:00 - 00:42:02

your sick balls.

Speaker 4

00:42:02 - 00:42:02

What was

Speaker 5

00:42:02 - 00:42:10

that movie? Was it the movie with the guy, the fat guy who had to eat the pies? It's like the old Stand By Me. Wasn't that in Stand By Me? Wait...

Speaker 5

00:42:11 - 00:42:15

Remember the flick Stand By Me? Uh-huh. Yeah. With River Phoenix?

Speaker 4

00:42:15 - 00:42:16

Of course. 1 of the

Speaker 5

00:42:16 - 00:42:17

greatest movies of all time

Speaker 4

00:42:17 - 00:42:19

so good, but I swear there was a dog

Speaker 5

00:42:19 - 00:42:28

in there It just reminded me of it's like Cujo sick balls. Oh Anyway, I don't know. What do you do with the dog? Like that? You just leave him on

Speaker 4

00:42:28 - 00:42:38

what it sounds like Halle Berry was was like a big part of the training for it. She also sounds like a badass. Of course. Like a serious badass. So super hot.

Speaker 4

00:42:38 - 00:42:47

She called him. Used to be, I think like, she was originally like a Miss America. She won it. She won Miss America. So super hot, starts acting.

Speaker 4

00:42:48 - 00:42:53

And now at what? Is she in her 50s? She's gotta be. Yeah. And just kickin' ass.

Speaker 4

00:42:54 - 00:43:01

Very impressive. I'm very impressed by that. How old is Keanu now? He's in his 50s. He is?

Speaker 4

00:43:01 - 00:43:12

Okay. Yeah, so Joe's age. Doing his jits. Pretty sure that's the first time I saw like decent-looking jits in a movie. And also what was he saying about that?

Speaker 4

00:43:12 - 00:43:29

It was like easier to film kind of like a jujitsu scene than a fight scene because you have to keep changing the angles. That's interesting to think of. Like, I never really considered that before. It makes you think, why wouldn't they have done more fight scenes like that in the past, then?

Speaker 5

00:43:29 - 00:43:32

Because There's not as much action with Jiu-Jitsu.

Speaker 4

00:43:32 - 00:43:38

Well, that's true, but you can do some cool stuff. You know? Like flip over and roll into an armbar and snap it.

Speaker 5

00:43:39 - 00:43:43

Yeah, I get it, but people want to see people flying through the air kung fu.

Speaker 4

00:43:43 - 00:43:43

That's a good point. People want to see

Speaker 5

00:43:43 - 00:43:44

kung fu.

Speaker 4

00:43:44 - 00:43:48

We do. You want to see... Everybody kung fu fighting? Yeah. Yeah,

Speaker 5

00:43:48 - 00:43:53

absolutely. You wanna see Bruce. Yeah. You wanna see Bruce Lee style.

Speaker 4

00:43:53 - 00:43:53

WAAA!

Speaker 5

00:43:54 - 00:44:00

Uh-huh. Like, jumping on stuff, doing backflips. That makes sense. You know, spin kicks, roundhouse. Yep.

Speaker 5

00:44:00 - 00:44:01

All that good stuff.

Speaker 4

00:44:01 - 00:44:04

Chuck Norris. Karate Kid. Chuck Norris stuff.

Speaker 5

00:44:04 - 00:44:11

I mean, Matrix style. You know, freeze frames. They do freeze frames in this film? Matrix style? No.

Speaker 5

00:44:11 - 00:44:16

They kind of never brought that back. That was like a 1 and done for like a 1 year and done.

Speaker 4

00:44:16 - 00:44:30

I think other movies tried it, but then it was just so clearly a ripoff of the Matrix that they didn't even... They just... It didn't work. It was like, what are you doing? It's like a soccer game and the ball's camera's spinning around a kick.

Speaker 4

00:44:30 - 00:44:46

You're like, okay, pretty cool, I guess. What about Joe building that door at his bar at the Comedy Mothership that's the same as the Assassin's Bar in the Continental? That sounds dope. I mean, at the end of the day, when

Speaker 5

00:44:46 - 00:44:47

I hear that,

Speaker 4

00:44:47 - 00:45:06

yeah, when I, when I first heard that, I just thought, well, of course, if you have like unlimited cash and you know, you can just do whatever you want. That's the kind of thing you should do. You should do cool shit like that, I think. Nothing wrong with it. I want to see that though now.

Speaker 4

00:45:07 - 00:45:08

I'm sure it's badass.

Speaker 5

00:45:08 - 00:45:27

You know what, 1 of the bigger takeaways, and this is totally off subject from the movie, they did talk a lot about the movie, but then they got into kids and some politics and stuff. But this, I think it was based off the digitally enhancing everything and how things are going to change so much. Oh yeah. AI.

Speaker 1

00:45:29 - 00:45:30

AI is going to change so much.

Speaker 5

00:45:30 - 00:45:59

And you're having these transcendental experiences and AI is gonna take over like video games, which I had never thought about really. I mean you look at those goggles and you're thinking, okay that's fun, whatever, but it's gonna be to the point where you're not gonna know what is a video game and what's not. It's going to be so realistic. And then, so Joe was talking about his kid and this is kind of on that same line of like, what are kids going to do? They're never going to leave the house.

Speaker 5

00:45:59 - 00:46:03

You're never going to get your kid to be able to leave the fucking house and play soccer anymore, read a book.

Speaker 4

00:46:03 - 00:46:04

Probably not. Because there's

Speaker 5

00:46:04 - 00:46:25

just gonna be other stuff that's just so much more stimulating. But he was talking about how his kid, his little girl, is like a little prisoner, right? The mom is saying, you know, his kid can only watch X amount of phone or YouTube a day, and she was figuring out how to rewind that app and then take a screenshot of the time she was already on YouTube.

Speaker 4

00:46:25 - 00:46:27

Well, she was doing screen recording.

Speaker 5

00:46:27 - 00:46:30

Screen recording, then showing it to her mom. Cheeky. Right?

Speaker 4

00:46:30 - 00:46:31

I love that.

Speaker 5

00:46:31 - 00:46:33

I loved it too. Yeah

Speaker 4

00:46:35 - 00:46:36

Yeah,

Speaker 5

00:46:36 - 00:46:43

it's so smart But it's it freaks me out man, cuz I got a three-year-old and it's just like

Speaker 4

00:46:43 - 00:46:44

well They're gonna figure it out too.

Speaker 5

00:46:44 - 00:46:45

They're all gonna figure What do

Speaker 4

00:46:45 - 00:46:56

you think about the right to strike stuff? I mean, you know, you produce a magazine, you know And I know when I first talked to you about the types of things chat GPT could do you were not a big fan of it

Speaker 5

00:46:56 - 00:46:56

No, I

Speaker 4

00:46:56 - 00:47:20

was like it was taken away from the human Experience and and I get where they're at, you know I don't want a bunch of people and or in the entire industry to lose their job, you know And does this ultimately mess with creativity because like what's his name? Mitch? You move caco Mitch you caco yeah, he was basically saying that all this program is doing is plagiarizing other things So

Speaker 5

00:47:20 - 00:47:21

right

Speaker 4

00:47:21 - 00:47:29

it's just mixing up ideas that already exist. So how does that change the quality of new ideas? I mean, that's problematic,

Speaker 5

00:47:29 - 00:47:30

right?

Speaker 4

00:47:32 - 00:47:52

But then also It's hard to you think of all the budget constraints on a show, and now they could come along and say, hey, chatGBT, write me an entire comedy, you know, like Friends, And it just makes it... That's a little difficult to stop. Are they going to have to prove that they didn't use AI somehow?

Speaker 5

00:47:52 - 00:48:06

I think there's just going to be a lot of lawsuits, and it's going to be hard to tell what's real and what's not. I mean, we're already seeing it. We're already seeing it happen. And we're not going to be able to stop it. So whether you like it or not, it's happening, it's already happening.

Speaker 5

00:48:06 - 00:48:15

I mean, that's kind of where the point that I got to is just realizing that this is not going anywhere, so we might as well start using it to our advantage.

Speaker 4

00:48:16 - 00:48:40

Yeah, and help it integrate into these people's jobs instead of having to get rid of them. I mean, 1 thing I saw, I was at the gym watching the TV, like in between sets, and it showed, while listening to this part at the same time, it showed that Paul McCartney is releasing a new Beatles song or album. I can't remember which 1 that has John Lennon in and it's like AI is added to it.

Speaker 5

00:48:40 - 00:48:41

That's awesome.

Speaker 4

00:48:41 - 00:48:49

And there's probably a few things going on there 1 I think that Pretty sure the Beatles sold a lot of their back catalog

Speaker 5

00:48:49 - 00:48:50

for a

Speaker 4

00:48:50 - 00:49:07

lot of money I think it may have even been to like Michael Jackson's estate So if there's new versions of their songs that are AI created, but Paul's doing it Does he then get all the rights to it and therefore is that all that bad? Like maybe they could come out with a really cool new Beatles album.

Speaker 5

00:49:08 - 00:49:09

A lot of lawsuits, man.

Speaker 4

00:49:09 - 00:49:10

That could be wild.

Speaker 5

00:49:10 - 00:49:15

I want some new Nirvana albums that Courtney Love cannot make money off of.

Speaker 4

00:49:15 - 00:49:16

Oh, you're not a big fan

Speaker 5

00:49:16 - 00:49:20

of her? Absolutely not. Oh, I think she had something to do with his death. Whoops

Speaker 4

00:49:20 - 00:49:24

Now we're gonna get some I don't agree, Cormac. Just

Speaker 5

00:49:24 - 00:49:27

kidding, just kidding Just kidding Love you, Carby.

Speaker 4

00:49:27 - 00:49:54

But yeah, new albums like that would be amazing. New Doors albums, new Jimi Hendrix like why the fuck not? Let's take actors, let's take Arnold in his prime. I don't know if you've seen the new Netflix documentary with Arnold, it's brilliant. But yeah, to go back and do like, you know, Predator, you know, another prequel but it's like him and it's exactly how he was when he was his most like Massively buff and all happened.

Speaker 4

00:49:54 - 00:50:08

I that's to me kind of cool. It's gonna I think and also yeah Maybe maybe it messes it up for new actors and news You know super muscly dudes that are trying to get in there. Hey man, I'm

Speaker 5

00:50:08 - 00:50:15

still waiting on a new Tupac album and it's gonna be ridiculous. Love that. Yeah. Love it. Alright guys, let's do it.

Speaker 4

00:50:15 - 00:50:25

Go out, check out John Wick 4, of course. It sounds dope, I need to watch it, I'll watch it this weekend. There you go. And anyway, we love you, but talk to you next week.

Speaker 5

00:50:25 - 00:50:26

Peace out!
