Speaker 1 (00:03):
Transmitting what's up everybody more, Welcome back, Hope you had
a great weekend. Let's do a little get to know.
The question is do you have a mentor or who's
the closest person to a mentor to you?

Speaker 2 (00:23):
Amy for work or personal?

Speaker 1 (00:25):
You know, it's just do you have a mentor? I
don't really care where you go with it. But what
comes to mind when I say that.

Speaker 2 (00:34):
I feel like in different spaces, I have different things.

Speaker 1 (00:37):
But you came to mind very first.

Speaker 3 (00:39):
Well, some of my fellow adopted moms. I rely on
them heavily, those that have gone before me, And and
that started well before we even got the kids, just
the journey of adoption and how long that took and
what it was like and what you have to do
and connections and networking and all the things. But then
once the kids actually get here. Yeah, there's there's a

(01:01):
few I could think of that I can call it
any given moment, any time of day, and they would
be there for me. And I hope that there's eventually
some other people that I can return the favor for
and do that that are young, I mean, And there
are some people that have adopted.

Speaker 2 (01:17):
That I've been there for them, but not in.

Speaker 3 (01:18):
The way that these people have like consistently, I feel
like I have a lot of questions.

Speaker 1 (01:23):
Eddie have a mentor. I don't want to say, they're
gonna laugh at me. Go ahead, they're gonna laugh.

Speaker 4 (01:28):
I would say, Bobby, like, I don't really have anyone
else in my life.

Speaker 1 (01:33):
No pessionally, well, no even personally.

Speaker 4 (01:34):
Sometimes I ask you about kind of my son that
I've adopted a little bit.

Speaker 1 (01:38):
Oh okay, so this is very specific though. Oh so
this is a great point.

Speaker 2 (01:42):
I get it.

Speaker 1 (01:43):
Now he has you have an adopted son that, yes,
basically grew up kind of how I did. And Eddie
will come and be like, hey, can you explain why
he would feel this way?

Speaker 4 (01:50):
And you have great explanations of what is why I
feel this way? Yeah, which is like I don't think
anyone else that I could call could have those answers,
And so we talk about that a lot. And professionally,
I don't think I could ever get to your level,
but I do like how you approach things professionally, so
I do ask you about some of that stuff.

Speaker 1 (02:06):
So I'm just going with the sun think because they're
gonna really oh my.

Speaker 5 (02:09):
God, oh professional that is Hey, Bobby, I can never
reach it. But no, no, Eddie can never reach his level.
But he really admires how Bobby goes about.

Speaker 1 (02:20):
He gave me a kidney.

Speaker 3 (02:21):
I'm gonna tell you, Okay, but lunchbucks, you have to
admit to that when we start. Like even from the
day we started the show with Bobby, he took it.

Speaker 2 (02:32):
We've learned a lot from him that would make him
a mentor.

Speaker 5 (02:35):
No, I mean you by watching him, but I don't
ask him questions, and I.

Speaker 1 (02:39):
Don't like Eddie doesn't ask me questions about work. It
sounds like he did. We talk about stuff, but not really.
I mean that's we don't do that a lot. I mean,
y'all go, I don't have a professional mentor. I wish
I would have known anybody. I don't have a professional mentor,
but I've a I don't really do music by trying
to do music. We do funny stuff. My mentor's Eddie. Okay,

(03:02):
is it literally? Because I will send you guys, Robbie,
like how would you play this? Or can you send
me rose?

Speaker 6 (03:14):
Yes?

Speaker 2 (03:15):
Why is it growing?

Speaker 5 (03:16):
Bobby just did that because Eddie kissed up to him.

Speaker 1 (03:18):
So he's like, I don't remember. It's up to anyone. Oh
you did musical mentor.

Speaker 3 (03:22):
To be fair, Eddie was in a band back in the.

Speaker 1 (03:26):
If there's an issue, I call Eddie and I'm like,
can we play this? What do you think Eddie? My
musical mentor? I knew we're gonna get crappy. Oh I'm
just covering you right now? Are you? Are you? You are? Thank?

Speaker 5 (03:38):
Oh my god. Well, I don't have a mentor. I
just view my life like I don't have anybody.

Speaker 1 (03:44):
Dad, You don't call him, be like, oh you talk
to your dad all the time, to my dad, but
you'll ask for like life advice. Know what what life advice?
I don't know, like parenting. We're not shoving a mentor
on your thro but I never had one.

Speaker 5 (03:56):
I mean I talked to my parents about life, like
what's going on in my life? And like I remember
that or you know, but I know, say, hey, my
kids spit?

Speaker 1 (04:03):
What should I do? I don't do that. You should
probably ask someone about that.

Speaker 7 (04:07):
You, Yeah, why are they spinning?

Speaker 1 (04:10):
Are you going to fix that? You just tell quits
spitting at each other?

Speaker 2 (04:13):
Like it's just at each other?

Speaker 1 (04:16):
Yeah? Yeah, but I don't.

Speaker 5 (04:19):
I don't call somebody like, oh my gosh, guys, my
kid is spitting up my other kid. Can you tell
me how to handle this?

Speaker 1 (04:24):
Really? Who would why would I call? Someone?

Speaker 6 (04:26):
Like?

Speaker 4 (04:27):
My wife calls her sister like all the time, and
she has great answers like, well, we do with my
kids like we do this.

Speaker 1 (04:32):
Mostly it's somebody who mentor is mostly somebody has been
through the through crap and what you're doing. It's never
somebody who's just has all all bells and whistles and success.
It's mostly somebody's been through crap and had to go
do it the hard way because they can give you hey,
yeah that's good, or I've experienced this in a negative way,
or this is the decision I wish I would have made.
And that's mostly what with one of Eddie's suns who

(04:54):
he's adopted, he's like, why do you think it? And
I'd be like, oh, I can tell you because I
was really bad at this and professionally because mentored.

Speaker 3 (05:00):
I didn't think of this, but I just mentored someone
through a divorce.

Speaker 1 (05:05):
Oh yeah, the pat that you went through.

Speaker 3 (05:07):
I didn't know like lawyer stuff. I didn't know any
of that sort of thing before and then so and
and and I had people that I actually called on
too of like, hey, how how do we do this?
So yeah, there's a bunch of different areas where it
can happen.

Speaker 4 (05:23):
Well, yeah, we're just mentoring each other, and we're gonna
get a bunch of guys.

Speaker 1 (05:28):
You guys want to say anything else about each other,
tell each other in private. We're mentoring each others. Dude,
Hey lady, thank you. Man, right back at you. Hello,
everybody mentors, we're gonna have so gross, so gross. I
think lunchbox his dad or mom's his mentor somebody he
kiss his dad on the mouth. So what your brother?
No teeth keys somebody. Yeah. But I don't need advice

(05:50):
from thever, from anyone, just like to talk things out.
What do I need advice?

Speaker 2 (05:54):
Being a homeowner? You just figure it out?

Speaker 6 (05:57):
Up.

Speaker 5 (05:57):
No, I bought a house and I moved into it,
and I paid the bills probably mentor, Like I don't understand,
Like what what do I need to ask my parents about?
Like how do I buy a house? Okay, you go,
you find one, you get a real estate agent, and
you buy it. I mean, there's nothing to be advised about.
Oh I did I know nothing. I had to call
multiple people when I bought a house because I I

(06:18):
don't know what I'm doing here, overwhelmed.

Speaker 1 (06:19):
It's a good rate because yeah, so okay, we'll cool. Okay,
he's got it all. Hey, this guy right here, just
because you ask someone a question does not mean you're
somebody you consistently go to. I don't consistently have anything
anythingybody to go to for. Hey, Bud, I'm here for
you if you ever need that. And I'm here for
you too, But no, you're too busy with Bobby and
looking at that stip away to help you. Yeah, I

(06:40):
am good, I promise, Mammy. Are you available for him?
I am not going through a.

Speaker 3 (06:44):
Divorce and I can offer him overntor divorce.

Speaker 2 (06:49):
I never I never wanted to be that.

Speaker 1 (06:53):
I don't need that. Okay, thank you. Let's open up
the mail bag mail and read.

Speaker 3 (07:01):
All the air to get something we call Bobby's mail bag.

Speaker 1 (07:05):
Yeah, hello, oh Bobby bones. I think I have to
fire our babysitter. She's been our babysitter for a few months.
But after I made the comment about her being good looking,
my wife once her gone, Yeah, you can't say that.

Speaker 2 (07:19):
I knew, why why would you say this?

Speaker 1 (07:21):
Don't say that. My wife told me that our babysitter
just broke up with a boyfriend, and I said she'd
probably have no trouble finding other guys since she's attractive.

Speaker 2 (07:29):
Oh I get that now. Okay, I still don't say that.

Speaker 1 (07:31):
It's no, it's not good. You just never acknowledge it.
Just everything. He's just having conversations. I agree in the
normal human yes, absolutely, just don't say.

Speaker 2 (07:38):
But I'm a normal human and I'm a woman responding that.

Speaker 1 (07:40):
I you know your wife and you know that's probably
gonna affect her if you say something like this. Okay,
that's on. You broke old on me, finished it though.
I don't know, get too much editorial here, because yes,
that's not that shouldn't happen and she shouldn't be fired
because of it. But you have to know read the room,
as they say. Okay, he freedom man. I thought I
was merely stayed in the op. But I guess I
took just one comment one time and took it to

(08:04):
the wrong place. And now she realizes how hot the
babysitter is. I don't know if she thinks I'm gonna
take a shot at her like to do in the movies,
or maybe she's worried the babysitter will take a shot
at me. That's not it, Yeah, that's not it. But
I just know that it sucks that I have to
take someone's job away because of how attractive they are.
Either way, my wife wants to out of the picture.

(08:24):
Is there more to this that I'm seeing? Signed a
dad with foot in mouth? Now, I will say, just
generally speaking, this is unfair. She shouldn't be penalized for
anything physical about her. She's pretty, ugly, ugly pretty, it's
all in the eye of beholder. It's all relative. She
shouldn't be penalized for how she looks if she's doing
a great job. And I hate that that it's come

(08:46):
to this. But you know your wife, and if she
if you have to let her go, that's on you
because you shouldn't have said something that you know, because
you know, even if you say I don't know, you know,
if you can't walk around and be like, hey, I
think she's hot, like to your wife regularly, for at
a restaurant, then you can't do that with the babysitter,
for sure.

Speaker 2 (09:05):
But he wasn't like oh she's hot. It's like hate.

Speaker 1 (09:07):
No, I know, I agree with what you're saying.

Speaker 5 (09:10):
Absolutely, he was just trying to be sympathetic because of
her situation and.

Speaker 1 (09:14):
Say she's she's really great. Dude, I she shouldn't get fired.
I'm on you guys's side, like, hey, everyone, this is
how the world should be. But I'm just talking real
talk to this dude. You messed up.

Speaker 4 (09:26):
Yeah, I think his wife didn't want her work in
there anyway, because that just sounds like an excuse because.

Speaker 5 (09:32):
The wife wife knows when she hires her she's hot, Like,
she doesn't need the husband to say, oh she's good looking.

Speaker 1 (09:40):
She can get a new dude like the white looking
for a reason. Still, you had my only point because
you guys are putting me. You're painting me in the
wrong corner here or not, Yes, you are. I agree
that she shouldn't be fired. However, she's gonna have to
be fired. And because if the wife already wanted her fired, yeah,
she's gonna get fired anyway, regardless if the wife was
waiting for you to slip up, she's waiting for you

(10:02):
to give her the reason to want to be fired.
And if she wasn't and you just said this, and
now it's affected her in a way. She's always gonna
think it and you're gonna wish you would have moved
on because it's going to create such tension in the relationship.
Is it right? No, she should not have to be fired.
But I'm just talking not from an HR perspective, from
a husband and wife perspective. If something is that bothers
something your partner, you've got to do something about it.

Speaker 3 (10:25):
There's an underlying issue of trust.

Speaker 1 (10:28):
Here and it takes a long time to fix. Still
got a fire even if there is.

Speaker 3 (10:32):
Okay, yeah, I can see like if there yeah, do
that so that you can take the moves to work
on the trust issue.

Speaker 1 (10:39):
This could be a I.

Speaker 2 (10:42):
That means like anybody that is good looking can't ever.

Speaker 1 (10:45):
No, not in general with this situation. If he let's
say he hooked up with somebody before it's a great,
great yeah, and he's like, oh wow, she's she's pretty,
then I would be like, oh, okay, well you've cheated
on me before and now you're even if that's not
what he means, meant again, he either knew the wife
or he's messed up before. It's just not worth fighting

(11:06):
for because you have to live with your wife all
the time, and you don't have to live the babiesit
all the time. She's just random. It's true. It is
not fair. I'm saying it again. Should he have to
fire her if she's just hot? No? Should he fire?
Should they fire her and give her a parachute as
far as like try to take care of her for
a little bit, yeah.

Speaker 3 (11:24):
Or like if there's yeah, you don't have another family
she can work for, obviously give that husband and a
heads up.

Speaker 1 (11:29):
I agree with you guys' general idea, but the actual
dynamic and the family is if you're gonna fight for this,
then she can bet. Why are you're fighting for exactly?
You're right, you got to hook up with her? Yeah, no, no,
but that's okay.

Speaker 3 (11:42):
Again, there must be an underlying trust issue if you
have a.

Speaker 1 (11:45):
But I'm not I'm not debating if there is, there
isn't amy.

Speaker 4 (11:47):
What Bobby is saying is like he's got to drop it,
Like he can't keep going with no, no, no, that and.

Speaker 1 (11:52):
Their family dynamic, there's no win. He's got to agree
with her and just be like, Okay, find you. But
the woman is the bad person in this situation, the
wife is bad. It just depends on the situation. We
don't know there before, and this is an issue. Great,
but we don't know that. If she has an issue
where she was cheated on by somebody else really badly
and she has trauma from that and things, you know,

(12:13):
trigger we don't know, it's just not going to be
worth it. It's unfair. Life is unfair. It's unfair for
this babysitter.

Speaker 3 (12:20):
Sometimes I wish mail bag like we had the people
on because I have questions like what's what's your history?

Speaker 2 (12:24):
How old is the babysitter?

Speaker 1 (12:25):
Also doesn't matter, None of it matters. He just have.
The answer is you have to move on from her, okay,
And I wouldn't even fire her. I would just say
we have to move on and give her a great recommendation.
You didn't officially fire her. She didn't. There's some reason.

Speaker 3 (12:39):
So it's not an assid it's a babysitter. So luckily
there's no HR because this would be.

Speaker 1 (12:42):
An issue when they call you for repords, be like
she had to go she was too hot. We all
feel the same way. However, I'm just going to the
point of you can feel that way, but then you
have to do what's good for your family. Yeah, and
it's that's not fair to her. That's still what she
gotta do. It's not worth a fight. It's about Oh,
you don't want to pick that's all. Yeah, anything you'd

(13:03):
like to say, No, I.

Speaker 2 (13:05):
Think I said it.

Speaker 1 (13:06):
It'd be so cool to have to get fired because
you're hot. That would be the greatest thing. They can't
tell her that, though. No, I'm just saying if you
were that hot in life, I mean that you're getting
fired for it, that's awesome. That the sad part should
never know that. So she'll just be like she knows
trust people like they know they know ood good. We
can't tell him that, but they know.

Speaker 4 (13:28):
Yeah.

Speaker 1 (13:28):
It sucks with her, But I got a feeling if
she's hot, her life's pretty good. People have pretty good lives.
That's true. I've heard we do. Yeah.

Speaker 6 (13:36):
He comes in.

Speaker 1 (13:36):
I'm like, hey, thank you. That's an uncomfortable mail bag,
but we got through it. Close it up. We got
your game mail and.

Speaker 5 (13:43):
We laid on your Now, let's find the clothes Bobby's
mail bag you.

Speaker 1 (13:50):
NASA is looking for people to live in a Mars bunker,
not on Mars, but they're going to kind of recreate
what it would be like to be on Mars. It's
an experiment. They're going to pay you sixty thousand dollars.
Oh how long? Real money? Here you go. NASA is
looking for four volunteers to be part of a simulated
Mars experiment that will last twelve months. The experiment will
take place at the Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas,

(14:10):
seventeen hundred square foot three D printed building. Scientists will
collec data on physical and behavioral health while battling extreme
isolation and separation from loved ones. They're looking for crop growth,
meal preparation, consumption, exercise, hygiene activities, maintenance work, personal time,
science works leap, how you get along with others, and
again you don't really get to be around your family

(14:33):
and maybe not even talk with them because they don't know.
You know, If AT and T works up there did
another day, they get very five dollars credit. But man,
there's a lot of people out there that don't have families. Yeah,
going on sixty grand for a year though perfect, That would.

Speaker 2 (14:46):
Be crazy because you could get out and you also wouldn't.

Speaker 1 (14:49):
Be spending it, or you have no expenses. I think that, well,
you know, if you have rent or something, you can't
just get out of a lease. But if timed right,
that it will be hard. But that would be legit
sixty grand for twelve months. I wonder if you could work.
You can't work remotely because you can't even talk your family. No, no,
not in Mars. Man, you can't like zoom meetings from Mars. Yeah,

(15:10):
not yet. Anyway, you can be paid two thousand dollars
to watch all ten Best Picture nominees. Oh, these are
all stories about getting paid to do stuff. If you're
into movies, there's a company looking to pay some one
two thousand bucks to watch all ten Best Picture nominees.
They'll also give to you a sixty five inch four
K TV whoa and five hundred bucks in door dash
gift cards for snacks. Wow, oh, I'll do that. So

(15:32):
here we go the Oscars, which are coming out March tenth. Hey,
Mike d movie Mike. Have you seen all ten of these?

Speaker 3 (15:38):
Oh?

Speaker 1 (15:38):
Yeah, I should have got the money. You did it
for free? Yeah, what's the worst of all ten? Probably Maestro?
Maestro is one of them. It's the Bradley Cooper movie
on Netflix. Yeah, and then probably Anatomy of a Fall
really boring in French. Oh French, there's ten nominations. They
do a bunch more now and they put in some
movies of people that like, we actually watch. Okay, they

(16:01):
aren't just like cool. Yeah, I guess you're Barbie and Oppenheimer. Yeah,
let's do them. Just give me a letter grade on
all these Okay, American fiction. Ooh, that's an A almost plus,
just solid A. I saw the guy I want a
big award, Yeah, the acting award. It's he's a writer
who decided to write something stupid instead of something good.
He's been trying forever, right, Yeah, Anatomy of a Fall,

(16:23):
I'd probably give that an F. Oh wow, yeah, Domina,
I watched it. I was like, I have no idea
what people saw in this movie, but it has like
a ninety six percent rating on run Tomatoes. Barbie A plus,
The Holdovers A A plus. I'll go a plus. I
like that. I give it a minus. Killers of the
Flower Moon A minus. I give it a. That's good.

(16:45):
I loved it is long, but I liked it. Maestro,
that's an FO. Oppenheimer A plus B plus for me, Yeah,
C minus from me only because I was told it
was so good. I think it might have been an
A if you guys, if America hadn't built it up.
But it was good. It was really good. Past Lives.
That's a Soliday Solida. That's the one that you want

(17:08):
watched to. Yeah, poor things, B plus the zone of
interest C plus what wins Oppenheimer? Do you guys? What's
your bet with big bets? We Oppenheimer parlay? Okay, go ahead,
Best picture gonna be Oppenheimer Killian Murphy's gonna win for
Best Actor, and then the director is going to win.

(17:28):
So you have if all three of them hit, you
win Eddie's money, you get a hundred bucks, okay, But
if any of the three lose, even if one of
the three loves Eddie gets how much twenty bucks? Okay?
So dumb? Why because, like I mean, it's movie Mike
from Movie Mike's Movie Podcast talking.

Speaker 4 (17:42):
About Ray told me that there are some gambling websites
overseas and they have those three categories that he just
said that they're highly highly favorites.

Speaker 1 (17:49):
Okay, but that doesn't mean all three will win. No,
you're right, I would do because we have a show
called too Much Access, a video show where we just
did the Dana Pacers and we did we just shot
at Florida State. We have Auburn coming up. If somebody
would walk out with us, like promote it for twenty
four hours straight, I give him a thousand bucks Human billboard.

Speaker 2 (18:11):
Wow, what where?

Speaker 1 (18:13):
I don't know, but everybody's paying stuff to do stuff
Like if a listener wanted to go promote this for
twenty four hours straight, they.

Speaker 2 (18:19):
Had twenty four hours.

Speaker 1 (18:21):
Yeah, yes, that could be easy. You gotta watch. I
think we have nineteen episodes, and how much watch all
nineteen episodes? Promote it all within twenty four hours? I
give him a thousand bucks. I'm shocking lunchboxes and't jumping
on this. Well, I'm not going to stand somewhere for
twenty four hour? Why not for a thousand dollars? No,
I'm good.

Speaker 4 (18:37):
He doesn't want money, then God didn't need the money.
I guess he doesn't want that island.

Speaker 1 (18:40):
You guys can hit me up my DMS if it
sounds good to you. That's we just keep hearing about
all these people like I'll give you fifty dollars to
eat nine eggs. Right, I'm like, all right, Well, we
have a show called Too Much Access to Too Much
Access dot com. If the listener wanted to be a
human billboard for twenty four hours, I pay a thousand bucks.

Speaker 2 (18:55):
But they could sit in that spot right, a chair
like the.

Speaker 1 (18:59):
As so long as the signs to up. Okay, yeah
I wouldn't. It's not torture. You can't fall asleep. You
can go to the bathroom. Yeah. I've not really talked
about this illegal, but looks what happens so weird.

Speaker 8 (19:08):
It's time for the good news.

Speaker 2 (19:14):
You know how.

Speaker 3 (19:15):
Sometimes we have stories brides kicking bridesmaids out of the
wedding party because they're pregnant or they.

Speaker 1 (19:20):
Got weird hair or yeah they pregnantes are.

Speaker 2 (19:22):
Mean yeah, because it's like you're like bringing life in
the world.

Speaker 1 (19:26):
And also you knew there were yeah, you know, they
get pregnant, go ahead.

Speaker 3 (19:30):
They don't wanted the pictures to look off because there
was like a pregnant person. So anyway, this is not
that a woman was fully ready to have her bff
be and her wedding pregnant, but then all her bff
went into labor.

Speaker 1 (19:43):
The picture then why you don't have it no the
picture like good cause you no? Nore? Yeah, well no, just.

Speaker 2 (19:49):
Not even there. So it's sad.

Speaker 3 (19:51):
But Ali did something cool after giving birth, and she
she made she connected with the whole wedding via FaceTime
and delivered her maid of honor speech that hey, let
a little old childbirth keep me from this, and so
it's gone viral on TikTok like millions and millions.

Speaker 1 (20:08):
That's pretty cool. And you should probably photoshop her in
to the wedding picture because now that you can do
it so easily, what we do well we, I mean
it's we because Caitlyn's family will be somewhere and if
there's only like six or seven of us, if it's
Kaitline and her sister and DJ brother in law, her
mom and dad, if somebody's gotta take the picture, if
there's nobody else around, so we leave a spot empty
in the picture, and then whoever's taking the picture justcause

(20:30):
photoshopped in because then they go stand by themselves. Hilarious.
And then because you can't get everybody in, is it
always DJ?

Speaker 2 (20:36):
That's nice?

Speaker 1 (20:36):
No, it's never it's never me either, Like we go
in and stand because we don't want them to be
at risk of us not being in the picture.

Speaker 8 (20:45):
Man.

Speaker 1 (20:45):
But that's how they should do that with her. They
should photoshop her in because she would have been there
in spirit with the baby, the newborn. No, no, they
should photoshopr and pregnant. Oh, that's not what it was
supposed to be.

Speaker 3 (20:55):
Well, but she would have to have taken a picture
in her bridesmaid's dress.

Speaker 1 (20:59):
Ai, Okay, technology, man, A great story, love it. That's
what it's all about. That was tell me something good, So.

Speaker 2 (21:08):
Bobby Bones Show interviews.

Speaker 6 (21:10):
In case you didn't.

Speaker 1 (21:11):
Know, Daytona five hundred champion William Byron is about to
be on with us now. My nast car knowledge is
very limited. However, Morgan number one's is not. She's die hard.
William Byron, what's he about?

Speaker 9 (21:23):
He's becoming that guy to be. He's really good. Last
season he won like six races.

Speaker 1 (21:30):
Is he young?

Speaker 9 (21:31):
He's young. I think he's twenty five or twenty six.
He's pretty young. You got to start in I racing,
which is very different than how most people around his age.

Speaker 1 (21:39):
Got their start video like simulator.

Speaker 9 (21:42):
Yeah, simulator racing.

Speaker 1 (21:44):
Is he likable?

Speaker 9 (21:45):
Very likable, very polite, like you would let your daughter
dat him if you had one kind of thing. He
seems like a very just great date.

Speaker 1 (21:54):
But he may be like the next up as one
of the greats.

Speaker 9 (21:56):
Oh I thought he was going to win the championship
last year he finished in third. I think he could
win it this year. He's a great driver, Morgan.

Speaker 1 (22:02):
Number One's here William Byron daytona five hundred champion. Let's
go on the Bobby Bones Show now, William Byron? Hey, William,
how's it going, Buddy good Man?

Speaker 6 (22:12):
How are you?

Speaker 1 (22:12):
Hey? Good So is will William? They don't call you Bill.
I mean, like, I don't know. William is such a
cool name, Like it almost feels like you you demand
respect if you go full William. Has it always been
full William? Yeah?

Speaker 6 (22:26):
I mean it's William or will But yeah, Bill's my dad.
So I was called Billy in high school. But I
try to avoid that one.

Speaker 1 (22:34):
That's a great point. If Bill's your dad, you don't
go Bill, then you don't go full Bill. You're not,
are you William?

Speaker 6 (22:40):
The second I am? I'm a junior.

Speaker 1 (22:42):
Yeah, okay, So here's the thing. William's regal Williams hardcore
deserves respect. William not even junior the second that's Legit
just sounded like a like a southern prince. That's awesome. Well,
why know, we haven't met, but congratulations on the Daytona
FO hundred and just being awesome. I'm gonna tell my
show something about William that you guys don't Maybe you

(23:02):
don't know. You can be blown away by by the
way William Byron's on with us. Listen to this. You
tell me if I'm wrong. William. William's a student at
Liberty University right now?

Speaker 2 (23:09):
Oh why is that?

Speaker 1 (23:11):
Why he drives the Liberty car? Now, let's ask it. William,
please follow up on this statement. Oh boy, what's that
the statement that you're in college?

Speaker 6 (23:20):
Oh? Yes, yeah, yeah, I take online classes.

Speaker 1 (23:23):
Yeah, at Liberty University. Why yeah, that's his question. Why
because he's ready to you you're rich and you got
a job.

Speaker 6 (23:29):
Man, Well, I'm working towards what I'm going to do
after after racing, so you never know how hopefully I
race for for decades, but you never know could could?

Speaker 1 (23:39):
I mean I don't know, realistically speaking, can you retire?
Even right now? William live a pretty good life.

Speaker 6 (23:45):
That's true.

Speaker 1 (23:46):
That's true.

Speaker 6 (23:47):
Yeah, I mean just trying to trying to keep it
going though for sure.

Speaker 2 (23:51):
What is his major though?

Speaker 1 (23:53):
Racing? Wait, so what is your major?

Speaker 6 (23:56):
William communications?

Speaker 1 (23:59):
Oh you can do this. You don't need to have
a degree for you of this crap that we do. Yeah, yeah,
you got it. So it's just he's like a. He's
like a he's so young. So does he get question?

Speaker 4 (24:11):
Does he get free classes because he drives?

Speaker 1 (24:14):
And can he clip out of driver's or any sort of.

Speaker 2 (24:16):
Driver related Yeah? Do you liberty universities related to the liberty.

Speaker 1 (24:23):
I'm sure that's why they. Yeah, yeah, do they give
you any free credit?

Speaker 6 (24:27):
So they I actually have to pay for the classes,
but I think that's just the the But yeah, I
mean I but no, they sponsor us on the racing side,
so there's a lot of connections there.

Speaker 1 (24:40):
So they pay him even more than they wouldn't normally
cover that. That's awesome and they're not going to fail
their student that is representing their university. That's a great
Do you ever, I'm just blown away he's so successful
and still taking college classes. To me that I think
it's amazing and it's a great example for young people everywhere.
But do you ever have to do a lot I
have online class with an instructor, or do you only

(25:01):
watch recording? Like do you ever have to raise your
hand on a zoom be? Like I got a question teach.

Speaker 6 (25:06):
So there's the discussion boards, and sometimes there it's like
a group project, so I have to go in there
and introduce myself. So that is it's always a little
bit uncomfortable trying to describe explain what I do. But
get a few laughs here and there, for sure.

Speaker 1 (25:22):
That's hilarious. It'd be like we're on and we're in
Homeck and Patrick Mahomes goes, hey, I'd like to ask
a question about how to make a Sioux fle Yeah,
you're like, wait, are you the same Patrick Mahomes. That
would be crazy. William Byron's on with us Daytona five
hundred champ. Obviously I do want to say this. Tune
into The Shriner's Children's five hundred at Phoenix Raceway Sunday,
March tenth at three thirty pm Eastern, two thirty Central
on Fox. I brought in Morgan number one because she

(25:44):
is a massive NASCAR fan and she's going to ask,
actually ask the intelligent questions. Morgan what is your first
question for William?

Speaker 9 (25:50):
Okay, my first question, hey William. By the way, hey,
is I thought that Alex Bowman won. To be totally
honest with you, did you think that Alex Bowman won?
And to give some background, there is a caution throne,
so basically, when the caution light comes on, that's your winner.

Speaker 6 (26:07):
Yeah. I mean, honestly, it was very close for sure.
But when we crossed the start finish line to take
the white flag, I felt like we were ahead, but
I couldn't really tell, Like it's hard to see out
of the cars, Like we have a full head surround,
so we can't just turn our head and look to
the right. But I knew he was kind of approaching,

(26:28):
you know, coming around the outside, but I didn't know
kind of where the where the lights had come on.
But fortunately I got the got the call that we
were ahead. So so when.

Speaker 1 (26:36):
Do you when do you find out? Because obviously was
super close. But yeah, did they tell you in your
ear how quickly? Because they go and they have you know,
they can watch pinpoint laser precision how quickly until you
know you one?

Speaker 6 (26:47):
Yeah, so it takes like a lap for them to
for them to review the tape and kind of look
at you know, who's ahead, and look at the timing,
and they have basically a snapshot that captures where we
are right when the right when the caution is thrown.
So it took like a lap. So that was a
lot of suspense.

Speaker 9 (27:04):
Yeah, and your crew chief started crying. So isn't it
true you didn't know if he was crying like tears
of joy because you want or because you lost.

Speaker 6 (27:13):
Yeah, I mean he was. He doesn't get emotional very often,
so he was. He was starting to ball up, you know,
on the radio. So I wasn't sure what that meant,
but it was a big deal for him and for
us as a team. So it's cool when.

Speaker 1 (27:27):
They're on radio. Can you hear them clearly? Or is
it so loud? Sometimes you have to like, what, huh
is that ever a thing?

Speaker 6 (27:35):
So yeah, so we have like a lot of noise canceling,
but still it's super loud. So yeah, like you're always
kind of I can always hear them pretty clearly. Sometimes
I have to turn them up a lot of times
I have to turn them down because their voice can
be pretty annoying. Under the cautions when the noise isn't
as high so but most of the time for me,
it's like having to shout back to them, like they

(27:57):
don't hear me the first time, so I'm like, Okay,
now I have to emphasize what I say again.

Speaker 1 (28:02):
Once when we first started to syndicate our show, we
were multiple multiple cities, but we didn't understand what we were doing,
and we got on the air. We thought we were
off the air, and we started, well, I guess we're
off the air, so let's just say stuff we'd never
say on the air. We were saying like our home addresses,
phone number, geez right. Do you ever hear them leave
the radio on accident and they're like, man, William sucks today,
or man I wish I wouldn't ate that to Stada.

Speaker 6 (28:23):
I don't know.

Speaker 1 (28:23):
Do you ever hear something where you're really not supposed
to hear it?

Speaker 6 (28:26):
So there's a second channel and they can say whatever
they want on there technically because I never hear that one.
But I do get my engineers to send me to
all the full radio after the race, so if there's
any if there's any talking going on there, definitely that
I definitely hear it eventually.

Speaker 1 (28:43):
That's the channel we want.

Speaker 9 (28:44):
Wait, so William, you take the time to listen back
to the full conversations after the race.

Speaker 6 (28:51):
Not not for that reason, but you know, to try
to study for sure what I'm hearing.

Speaker 1 (28:57):
Talk William Byron's on with us. This is also I'm
gonna ask another like goofy question that I really care
about before we get another serious question. But I like
to play Madden and I like to play NBA, so
the two games I play in PS five with my friends.
Listen to this about William. It's not like he's fifty,
he's still in college. But as a teen he won
two hundred and ninety had two hundred ninety eight top

(29:18):
fives and one hundred wins on the I Racing simulator
against worldwide competition. Then he moved to real cars. So
how much did that trends? How much? How hard was
that transition going from I don't even know the simulator
to the real car? Was it easy as easy as pie?
The same or not?

Speaker 6 (29:33):
I mean, very different, but you know the same skills
still apply. I felt like I still had a feel
for the car, but on I Racing, when I was
racing on the sim to learn how to drive I
was using my eyes a lot, and you know, basically
the feel in my hands and my feet, and then
I feel like when you get into the real car,
you're users and the noise, the feel underneath and through

(29:54):
your whole body. So definitely a lot more intimidating getting
into a race car and kind of the danger aspect
of it.

Speaker 1 (30:01):
But because that's real, that'd be like playing Call of
Duty and being like I'm the King and then they say, Okay,
well here's a real gum with the real people. All
of a sudden, your butt pucker's a little bit when
you're out there, for sure.

Speaker 9 (30:10):
Morgan, Okay, I have a nosy question. So a couple
of seasons ago, I think it was twenty twenty two,
you got a fifty thousand dollars fine for spinning Denny Hamlin. Yeah,
by accident, apparently under caution, and then you know it
ended up being bumped up to one hundred k so
your team could get back some of your your playoff points.

(30:32):
My question, did you have to pay that fine or
does Hinder?

Speaker 6 (30:38):
Yeah?

Speaker 9 (30:38):
Does does Hendrick pay it? Who pays that fine?

Speaker 6 (30:42):
So I paid that one unfortunately, Yeah, but it not
a great day. But it was you know it was better.
They got rid of the points part of it, so
at least you know that part was better.

Speaker 3 (30:54):
But so you were.

Speaker 9 (30:55):
Happy to pay one hundred thousand instead of fifty so
you could have your extra playoff points.

Speaker 6 (31:01):
I wasn't happy about it, but it happened.

Speaker 2 (31:03):
Hey, it's okay, guys.

Speaker 3 (31:04):
I just googled your projected net worth for twenty twenty.

Speaker 1 (31:08):
They PreCure network. He's the dumbest page.

Speaker 2 (31:11):
Go ahead this twenty five million.

Speaker 1 (31:13):
Oh he's going to school in case he wants to
be a podcast.

Speaker 9 (31:20):
Oh, we have a network for that.

Speaker 1 (31:22):
We do. William William So I got to find a
million bucks once by the sec. I get Hey, I
get any points, takeing away, get points? I got nothing?
So like I relate William Byron's on with us. William
So we have these we have we have Joey Logano helmet.
We have a Ryan Blaney helmet. Like it is great
luck for people, for especially drivers when they come on

(31:44):
the show, to send us memorabilia because they drive wonderfully
for the quarter. That's the deal we make. We can't
do it six months, but we can we can give
you three months of solid safe driving and let's say, hey,
Blaney Logano not doing so bad? Am I right?

Speaker 6 (32:00):
No, No, they're on top of their games for sure.

Speaker 1 (32:03):
Exactly, So we'll get you that address. We'll feature it
up here as soon as your class. He'll have a
heck of three months coming up right here, Morgan, another.

Speaker 9 (32:09):
Question, Okay, speaking of Joey Logano, he just got penalized
for his gloves at Atlanta. Apparently the left hand had
extra webbing in between the fingers. And when I saw
that headline, I'm like, that can't actually help his performance,
There's no way. But then I saw Bob Powkers. I
think he did a story about how he can stick

(32:32):
his fingers out the window net and it helps like
manipulate the air.

Speaker 2 (32:36):
What is that real?

Speaker 9 (32:38):
Like, do you as a driver, are you thinking that's
something that could have actually given Joey an advantage?

Speaker 6 (32:44):
I don't know how much, you know, I don't know
how to quantify how much of an advantage, but definitely
all of our engineers tell us to do that. Now
that you're supposed to put your hand out the window
and basically put it at a flat angle so it
blocks the air. So it's it's just a way to eliminate.
Like if you stick your hand out the window going
down the highway, how much your hand you know, gets
pulled back it basically if you put it flat, it

(33:07):
just deflects the air out. So pretty pretty uh smart
move there to put webbing inside the glove.

Speaker 1 (33:14):
Let me get this straight. So if I'm driving my
car and I put my hand out, and sometimes if
a blinker's out, I will I'll be like left bent
arm right right? What will it help me do? Or
what what will it help you? Guys do that you're
not supposed to do. When you say manipulate, is it that?

Speaker 9 (33:32):
Yeah?

Speaker 1 (33:32):
There is it? I guess the margin of difference. Is
it that small where even the smallest little bit of
air manipulation affects a race?

Speaker 6 (33:40):
Yeah, So basically it just makes the cargo faster in
a straight line. So uh, it's just eliminating like air
coming in the car and slowing it down. So uh,
we just call it drag. It's just an aero dynamic term.
But but yeah, it's just it's less drag. If you
put your hand out the window at a at the
right angle, it blocks all that.

Speaker 2 (34:01):
Wow, he's correct, googled it.

Speaker 1 (34:03):
I would you I would when I would ride bike
for like trathlons, you can get in somebody's isn't that
called drag? Yeah? Yeah, I'm an idiot.

Speaker 4 (34:15):
You ever get behind like an at wheeler and it
just shakes your car like that? Like, so it's weird
because these race car drivers it's hard to keep the
lead for a long time because they're getting fresh air
and not so much just like the winds making a
tunnel for them, Is that right?

Speaker 6 (34:29):
That's right, Yeah, there's a draft just like, yeah, very
similar to cycling, Like if you get tucked in behind
another car, you go way faster. You know, you go
way faster because of the draft they give you. But
but yeah.

Speaker 1 (34:42):
Would you ever purposefully not take the lead if you
knew the lead cars kind of a chump and you
could take them anyway and just ride him until it
was time to like until it was time to like
uh you know, slingot forward.

Speaker 6 (34:55):
Yeah, so yeah, like that's definitely a strategy, like riding
in second, But as the laps get towards the end,
you don't want to be in second because you you
could you know, you might not get a chance to
make a move, So you have cautions and you have
crashes behind you, so you try to get the lead.
You know, I don't want to give all my strategy away,

(35:16):
but you try to give get the lead, you know,
somewhere within ten laps to go.

Speaker 1 (35:19):
And I asked that in a way that's not fully stupid,
because running there are times where you let someone hold
the pace and you know they're kind of a chump
and you can take them, but you just don't want
to take them yet instead a new pace. I didn't
know if cars were like that too. Imagine if youd
your hand out the worldle at the same time. Oh
my god, I know. Okay, we have three final questions, Morgan,

(35:40):
go ahead.

Speaker 9 (35:40):
Okay, so William. I don't know if you heard Kevin
Harvick's latest podcast episode, but he's retired from He retired
at the end of last season, and he mentioned that
you're really blossoming right now and that he projects you're
going to win.

Speaker 1 (35:52):
And awesoming sounds like.

Speaker 9 (35:55):
Those are his words, okay, and he projects you're going
to win five to seven races year.

Speaker 6 (36:00):
Oh well, what's it?

Speaker 9 (36:01):
What's it feel like to be in that position now
where you're being viewed as a one to beat because
last season really set the stage for that.

Speaker 6 (36:10):
Yeah, I mean it's unique. It's definitely a bit of
a target on or back as a team because I
feel like, you know, everyone's everyone's measuring us. But it
is good. I mean, I think I enjoy it. I
enjoy I feel like our team's getting really strong. We
have a great pit crew, we have a great guys
that build the race cars, and we communicate really well.
So I feel like all the things are starting to

(36:31):
come together for long term success.

Speaker 1 (36:35):
I know you're in Charlotte. Are you a Panthers fan?

Speaker 6 (36:39):
I am, unfortunately right now.

Speaker 1 (36:41):
A tough year. How'd you feel about Frank Wright being
run out of town after one year?

Speaker 6 (36:46):
Yeah, that was a tough hire. I never really I
don't know if I agreed with that one. It was
it was tough to to kind of rally the team,
it seemed like. But I mean, the new guy canallys.
He seems he seems like he's got good charismas, so
hopefully he's answer Bryce Young.

Speaker 1 (37:01):
I feel like he's that dude, but didn't have a
shot last year. How do you feel about Bryce Young?

Speaker 6 (37:06):
I mean, he's he's kind of my height, so that's
the only thing but I think he's putting on some weight,
and I think he's obviously a great passer, has a
great skill set. We just got to get the offensive
line surrounding him, and we got to get some weapons
on the outside. We don't have a lot of speed,
so hopefully we can get a few speedy weapons for him.

Speaker 1 (37:27):
The only so this ball here is signed by We
went and did a thing with Bryce and well coach
Rock at the time, and we got this ball and
they signed it. This is the only not good example
of luck that Yeah, the memorabilia of luck. I'm gonna
be honest with you. I got it. But we're Panthers guys.
We did a sports show episode with them and they
both signed it. Do you think this ball is more
valuable because the coach got fired in Bryce or less valuable?

Speaker 6 (37:50):
You know, I give it like ten years. Maybe it'll
be really valuable because of Bryce, But you think.

Speaker 1 (37:54):
The value goes down because the coach was Yeah, probably.

Speaker 6 (37:58):
All right, maybe a little maybe.

Speaker 1 (38:00):
Well, look, we're super pumped. We're rooting for you.

Speaker 6 (38:03):
Thank you.

Speaker 1 (38:03):
Yeah, I mean, it's it's really cool to see you blossom.
Who doesn't love to see he's blossoming? Right, now that's
just a weird one.

Speaker 9 (38:09):
He's one of the best out there.

Speaker 1 (38:11):
I know he won't look at I mean, the dude's
killing but I'm saying the word blossom. It feels like
we're to use for somebody in puberty.

Speaker 3 (38:18):
Yeah, William, are you willing to share your current GP
A GPA?

Speaker 6 (38:23):
Oh? I feel like it's I feel like it's Oh
I should know this. I think it's right around like
three point two.

Speaker 4 (38:29):
That's good and a full time job or blossoming and
be students.

Speaker 1 (38:35):
What when you drive the truck? How different?

Speaker 6 (38:39):
Very different? I mean those things talked about drag. They
have a ton because the roof is so tall, so
they just they feel like they go really slow down
the straightaways. But but they're fun. They have a lot
of they move around a lot, They buffer in the
air a lot.

Speaker 1 (38:56):
It's like right in the back of one of those
during the race. I used to get everywhere back in
Arcat's always in a truck. Yeah, like you should have
to do a race with somebody in the back, and
that part of the win is they didn't die, oh man,
or or you strap them in and then you have
to suffer.

Speaker 6 (39:08):
Okay, Yeah, you need to ride. You need to ride
in a two seater in the in the right side.
You have a great time doing that.

Speaker 1 (39:14):
I'd vomit my brains out. William Byron, you guys can
follow him on Instagram, a Twitter William Byron, driver of
the number twenty four Chevy Camaro Zee one four hundred
Motorsports And let me say again, be sure to watch
The Shriner's Children five hundred a Phoenix Raceway on Sunday,
March tenth, at three thirty pm Eastern, two thirty Central
on Fox. Hey, William, really great to spend some time
with you. We appreciate it, and hopefully you know, we'll

they use on the Space Shuttle. Space shuttle. Well hot dang,

(40:27):
you're like an astronaut now, yeah, something like that. But
I still ain't got no sea legs. Can't find a
balance on these things. Maybe you just need to give
it some time you don't get used to. Maybe maybe not. Hey,
at least I can stand tall now he got something?
Sure is you look good up there? Thank you? Hey,
you know you're like a brother to me. I reckon
that makes this even?

Speaker 6 (40:46):
Yeah?

Speaker 1 (40:47):
I reckon it? Does I reckon it? Does? There? We go?
See that was all one? What that was all one movie?

Speaker 6 (40:54):
Man?

Speaker 1 (40:55):
Might have seemed like we had nine characters. We were
We're just finding ourselves in the wind. And I'm why
do you do a face like that? Yellow Card? I
don't like face. Oh my goodness, you did a face.
I don't like it, yellow card.

Speaker 2 (41:10):
I was making a face with I don't think I'm right, Okay.

Speaker 1 (41:13):
Take it back, No yellow cad and Amy.

Speaker 2 (41:17):
I had a hint of Matthew McConaughey somewhere.

Speaker 1 (41:20):
We're trying not to do impressions.

Speaker 2 (41:21):
I know, okay, go ahead, Interstellar.

Speaker 1 (41:24):
Okay, Eddie, Yeah.

Speaker 4 (41:25):
I had matthem Conaughey too in there in Forrest Gump,
but Space.

Speaker 1 (41:31):
Lunchbox, I have Forrest Gump, what would be space the
part that in the Space Shuttle, I didn't say I'm
on the Space Shuttle.

Speaker 2 (41:38):
I could have swore you were on the ship.

Speaker 5 (41:40):
For they were gonna qute Interstellar, a movie people have
seen in the world.

Speaker 1 (41:45):
The answers Forrest Gump, right, good job.

Speaker 2 (41:48):
Okay, that's why I made a face. I'm like, why
would they act Yellow Card again? But you're why would
they act out Interstellar?

Speaker 4 (41:55):
It's like the easy one, So you're purposely not doing
the characters.

Speaker 1 (41:58):
Yes, because Ray could have been like Lieutenant Dane right right,
right right. We're doing we're acting, dang, but we're doing
it as an actor that is not doing an impression.
Got it?

Speaker 3 (42:10):
Where did I hear space shuttle or she said space shuttle?

Speaker 1 (42:12):
The metal and the legs of Lieutenant Dan were what
they use on a space shuttle. That's why maybe they're
gonna start tracking ready RAYEP Number two. Eddie and Lunchbox
both in Yes and action here thought you might like
this harmonica. What's this for? Well, let's say music sues
the soul. Figured it might help pass the time in here.

(42:35):
Ain't nothing in here gonna sue my soul. Maybe not,
but it can't hurt to try, right, I mean, I
suppose not go on, give it a try. See not bad,
you got a real talent. Yeah, well, don't get no

(42:56):
ideas about starting a band now, wouldn't dream of it.

Speaker 4 (43:02):
See why is all your movies like Huck Finn and
like Tom Sawyer Crowd?

Speaker 1 (43:11):
Can you name that movie? We're killing it, Bud? They
can last as they want. We're killing it. Yeah, that
hard complain was pretty good. Thank you. I'm in.

Speaker 4 (43:21):
I'm in for the wind Lunchbox, Eddie Hunk, Huck Finn
in Shoshank Redemption.

Speaker 1 (43:28):
That is that is shash Ank Redemption.

Speaker 6 (43:31):
Good.

Speaker 1 (43:32):
We have one more movie if you tie, we go
one sudden death trivia question? Got it about movies? Okay?
Or do you want to just yell her name on
this now? Because I want you to interrupt our bye,
I know, because you guys are nailing it. This is
the hard one action. Something strange is going on.

Speaker 10 (43:50):
I can't shake this feeling that my whole life is alive.

Speaker 1 (43:53):
Take it easy, buddy, you're overthinking things.

Speaker 10 (43:56):
No, I'm serious. There things happening, things I can't explain.

Speaker 1 (44:00):
Look, look, I know things have been weird lately. You're
just imagining things. Everything's fine.

Speaker 10 (44:04):
I'm serious, there's things happening, things I can't explain.

Speaker 1 (44:08):
Did I just read the same line?

Speaker 2 (44:09):
Yes?

Speaker 10 (44:09):
You did, But what about the glitches, the things that
don't add up, coincidences.

Speaker 1 (44:16):
You are reading too much into it. I'm not giving up.

Speaker 10 (44:19):
I need to find out the truth, no matter what
it takes.

Speaker 1 (44:25):
Just let it go, because sometimes ignorance is bliss, you know,
not the time. I won't be kept in the dark anymore.
Say wow, that was good. That was real good. Well,
and hey, you like how we did them?

Speaker 6 (44:42):
Problem?

Speaker 1 (44:42):
You mess up the line? Yeah? Yeah, yeah, we just
kept going. But usually the.

Speaker 4 (44:45):
Actor didn't say, like, I just read the same line.

Speaker 1 (44:47):
Yeah. But then I was like, who cares the movie?
I'm in Wow for the wind, I'm in for the wind.
I have no idea. I do lushbox putting matrix. Not
a bad guest, never seen non text. I can appreciate
a solid guest. Not it Eddie and.

Speaker 4 (45:06):
I think it helped that you guys didn't do country
accents in this one.

Speaker 1 (45:09):
Give me the Truman Show. I'm nursing that, Carrie. Yeah,
because it's the glitches. I thank I was another one
of my thoughts. But the matrix is a good guest though.
For glitches it is. It's the Truman Show.

Speaker 7 (45:23):
WHOA, you win the game. Here's your song. But you
know what, guys, it's not about me today. It's about
the actors.

Speaker 1 (45:37):
Ask your buddy, great job, that's fun. That was a
fun game. He's the one that suggested we bring that
game back, and she had eliminated for as we should
have given a free passes, like at least a second round.
We haven't played that.

Speaker 2 (45:48):
Game in a lot.

Speaker 1 (45:51):
People will do all kinds of stuff to make their
body look better. If you can inject yourself with stuff,
I mean really, you can just try to eat healthier,
get good sleep. So I try to do X size.
This one guy went in. It's like a hurting but
he'd been working so hard. My stomach's killing me. Doctor like, well,
what's up, I'm trying to get jacked. Well, why is
your stomach urt?

Speaker 6 (46:10):
Well?

Speaker 1 (46:10):
I swallowed thirty nine coins and thirty seven magnets because
he thought the zinc and it would help build his body.
What so he swallowed thirty nine coins and thirty seven magnets.
Don't they have vitamins for that? And the reason he
swallowed the magnets was to make sure the coin stayed
in his gut because he wanted to absorb the zinc
from them. So doctors had to cut into him and
forget it. Oh my good, going to the intestines. He

(46:32):
spent a week in the hospital. He's in good condition.
But when you look at the x ray, to imagine
the x ray, imagine the pelvis area of the x ray,
it's just humongous blobs in its coins and magnets feel
like an arcade game. It's that's that's that's ridiculous. But
somebody had to plant that idea with him, like one

(46:52):
of his buddies. Is a joke or really dumb? Do
you ever think about swallowing in the quarter.

Speaker 8 (46:56):
It's got a lot of pile of stories.

Speaker 3 (47:02):
All right, I got three things you should never do
at work.

Speaker 1 (47:05):
Oh, I could think like nine right now and lunchbuck
does a couple go ahead?

Speaker 2 (47:09):
Okay?

Speaker 3 (47:10):
This is according to an HR professional don't overshare because
oversharing too much of your life with coworkers could cause issues.

Speaker 1 (47:17):
And yeah, our whole show's oversharing.

Speaker 2 (47:18):
We get paid to overshare, and there's issues. Yeah, go ahead,
don't be humble.

Speaker 3 (47:22):
If you're too humble, you might get passed up for
promotion or something like that.

Speaker 1 (47:26):
So this is a get ahead type thing, not yeah,
get fired.

Speaker 3 (47:29):
If you're not advocating for yourself, nobody else's that's true.

Speaker 1 (47:32):
There is a there's a fine strategy to it. Yeah,
and you're never going to walk it properly because if
you're very confident, people will go always just cocky. It
makes them uncomfortable. But there is a line of cocky.

Speaker 2 (47:44):
Give us an example of how you would.

Speaker 3 (47:47):
Demonstrate this, Like if you were at dinner with our bosses,
or our bosses were like in here, like the New
York ones.

Speaker 1 (47:52):
The first you do is brag on somebody else. Oh okay,
because it's disarming and it's not a Mimi Mi sho.

Speaker 2 (47:58):
One of them. You'd complem oh.

Speaker 1 (48:00):
Confident somebody else that I work with, I would.

Speaker 2 (48:02):
Say something you can use me as an example.

Speaker 1 (48:03):
I would say something about let's use Mikeda's example. First
of I wouldn't use any whose example I want to
be us an example, it's Mike D. Guys, I would say, yeah,
thank you for all the nice comments about the show,
but it's all miked if it wasn't for Mike D.
Because he's the vertebrae of the show. Like he you
don't really see him, he doesn't get on the air
a lot, but for me, like he's predicting where I

(48:24):
want to go. I couldn't do this without him, Like
he's so important and I just want you guys to
know that. So now they're already like he's not on
the hype train. He's not on the Hymn hype train.
And then I would say it's allowed, Mike. And also,
your leadership has allowed us to win in this way,
and I could present data and I'd be like, that's
why we're just killing it. And that's what makes me
so good is my support and because of that, I'm
able to do this and do so. I've walked him

(48:45):
into a whole brag session about me WHOA, and they
they've been built up. I've just built up somebody else
and they're filling empowered because I'm bragging about what they've
allowed me to do and so now they're like, heck, yeah,
want another fifty mili have it. That's good man. So
that is how you'd not be humble if it's in
a dinner situation. Otherwise, if it's email similar, you just

(49:07):
have need to present data and not opinions. But you
can cherry pick data like crazy, got it. I put
a lot of time, I do this a lot. Go ahead.

Speaker 3 (49:15):
Don't stick around too long at parties because negative things.

Speaker 1 (49:18):
Go to parties. Be me.

Speaker 3 (49:19):
You never go if there's alcohol involved or just coworkers
or in a different environment, it could lead to negative things.

Speaker 1 (49:25):
Or you just stay out rama period, even if it's
fun to be in it, because professionally, if your job
is to move up professionally, stay out of drama where
you're working because if you are consistent emotionally professionally, that
is how you move up.

Speaker 2 (49:46):
Emotion Consistency, yeah, for sure.

Speaker 1 (49:48):
Because if it's like if you're working with somebody and
they have breakdowns and that's fine, but you almost can't
trust them as much to be there when it's hard. Consistency,
if you can be good almost every day and occasionally great,
that the key to long term success, So I should
do the Yeah, I should do what? I should do
a book on this? Oh yeah, because I'm not great

(50:09):
at anything, but I'm very consistent and I'm pretty good
at a lot of stuff that I work hard at. And
if I can just be great occasionally and I'm never
really bad, sometimes it gets a little worse, but that's all.
It's so hard to be consistent and motivation comes and goes.
Discipline is always there. If you're disciplined, sometimes you know,
not feeling good, you still do it. Motivation inspiration that

(50:31):
comes and goes.

Speaker 2 (50:31):
Except if we're not feeling good, we're not supposed to come.

Speaker 1 (50:34):
No sounds physically, it's different. Inspiration and motivation come and go.
It's like the stock market. It's how discipline is always there.
That is the absolute key. It's not pretty or fun
or anything, but that is that's it, all right, I'm
disciplined enough now to move on.

Speaker 3 (50:47):
A new poll found that a third of us would
leave our job if someone else is willing to pay
us the same amount that we're making now, like no
rais is required, which that means that the third of
people just aren't really happy.

Speaker 1 (50:57):
They're dramatic where they are or their job is, or
we or we just have grasses green or complex, which
we all do in different versions of our life where
we think it's going to be better because we're not there,
and we have these unfair expectations that if this place
is treating their people better, they're going to treat me
better too, And it's not it people working there the

(51:18):
same way. It's like you marry somebody. Let's let's say
I'm a lady and I see a dude. I'm like
that dude, him and his wife. I'd sure like to
be with that dude. I bet he's awesome. Yeah, he's
awesome from ten feet away. But you married and you
see a same old crap every day. He's just gonna
be another dude you're annoyed with. Wait wait, did you
just say you're going to marry the dude? Yeah, because
if I said hot chick, I just chose not that,

(51:39):
Because the thing is that hot chick to you is somebody,
some woman that some dude's dealing with. Going God, I
wish I had that hot chick. I want to say that,
and now I did, but I wanted to present it
the other way.

Speaker 3 (51:51):
So this is all part of a survey that looked
into what makes us feel valued at work, in eighty
one percent of people say that they're more motivated when
they feel appreciated. Yeah, I agree, and meaningful forms of
appreciation at work includes I.

Speaker 1 (52:05):
Can tell you yours. Amy's likes. Amy likes me just
to send her an email how you're doing a good job.
This is what I liked.

Speaker 2 (52:09):
She just likes words, words of affirmation or not an email.

Speaker 1 (52:13):
But that's how I do it. Something. I don't do
it all the time because I want her to feel
like when I do do it.

Speaker 2 (52:16):
It means something right.

Speaker 1 (52:18):
And I also shut your mouth. Eddie likes to be punished. No,
oh sorry, I don't in the world. I do feel
like I've gotten even better at that expressing, Hey, you
did a really good job here. Just keep continue doing this.

Speaker 3 (52:31):
Yeah, like eight months ago, I got you sent me
a text or something.

Speaker 2 (52:36):
She remembers it because he does it.

Speaker 3 (52:38):
I also remember one time in two thousand and eleven,
all because but that wasn't walking dead was big, right,
because I think I was.

Speaker 1 (52:46):
I've done it more than twice. I'm telling you everybody,
Oh yeah you have.

Speaker 3 (52:48):
And there's also uh, but these are the ones I remember, Yeah,
I get.

Speaker 1 (52:53):
Another twenty eleven. You did it one time ten years ago.

Speaker 2 (52:57):
No, No, he did send an email in twenty twenty.

Speaker 1 (52:58):
Two, like I remember going to work like, hey, you're
valuable that you can do but you can actually do this.
I believe that you can do this too. That to me,
those are also affirmations, not you did a good job
in the past at this. It's I believe in you.
I think you'll be great at this. Yes, although she
doesn't see it the same way, so I'll stop that.

Speaker 2 (53:15):
That's not it's over, no more true anyway.

Speaker 3 (53:19):
Other ways you can show appreciation are one on one
conversations with your boss, like giving them that time, but
awards like employee.

Speaker 2 (53:27):
Of the month.

Speaker 1 (53:28):
Hey, we do that. It doesn't make us feel good.
I've offered Ray like a promotion five times to just
show how valued he is, and every time I'm like, read,
do you want a promotion? Dog?

Speaker 6 (53:39):
I'm good?

Speaker 1 (53:39):
No, no, no, but you've worked so hard you pimp.
I'm good. That's he's rich man. I knew it. I
guess I've been like, right, you're killing it and show up.
You're just consistent as can be. You would you like Nah, pimp,
I'm good.

Speaker 3 (53:53):
Well, now that he moved into a house and he's
a homeowner, has he changed his mind?

Speaker 1 (53:57):
What's the position knock Scooba off? Well, if he doesn't
whoa whoa. But so with Ray though, that to him,
it wasn't an expression of how you're doing a good job.
But it's like with Ray, it's other things, like when
his car was all messed up. It's like, hey, why
do you telet me buy you tires? Because I've you've
been to such a good job, at least let me
do something like that. Everybody has their own love language

(54:18):
or boss language. Ed he likes to be punished. I
don't know.

Speaker 4 (54:22):
I don't know why I keep saying that money.

Speaker 1 (54:28):
You guys like money though.

Speaker 3 (54:30):
Well, just one final thing about George Strake because I
thought this was a little fun fact. The first band
he was a part of, and the ironic part is
called the Country Kings. They kicked him out because he
wasn't country enough, and now he's the king of country
any country.

Speaker 1 (54:45):
That's a classic. It's happening in every single generation. They
always think people aren't country enough, and turns out that
is what country music evolves to.

Speaker 2 (54:52):
Do you figure out the theme of the pile.

Speaker 1 (54:53):
The pile with stories that I don't care about.

Speaker 2 (54:56):
They were all I was just kidding. I did care,
even the George one.

Speaker 1 (55:00):
You know what you did? Good job to text you
real quick, Amy, good job.

Speaker 2 (55:05):
Whatever.

Speaker 1 (55:07):
It's all about what jobs job? Yeah, one on Steve
Steve jobs. All right, go ahead, that's it. That's what
that was. Amy's pile of story.

Speaker 8 (55:18):
It's time for the good news, Bobby.

Speaker 1 (55:24):
In a word, just one word. Generally, your spring break
in college was blank lunchbox party, Eddie drunk Amy my birthday? Okay, good? Uh?
This one surgery cherish shrunk. Will we undergoing surgery to
give her kidney to a total stranger? Oh? That is
so cool. So what Eddie wants to do? That's what

(55:44):
I want to do, man, I've always wanted to do this.
They're a friend's post on social media. She learned about Danny,
a former coal miner who has been battling type one
diabetes since he was a kid. He desperately needed a kidney,
and so she was motivated to reach out d M him, Hey,
what's up? Got tested? They matched, and that's what happened.
During spring break, went and donated the kidney question.

Speaker 2 (56:03):
Has Eddie gone to see if he's a match for Herold?

Speaker 1 (56:06):
No, no, no, he wants to go and see if he's
a match one day. I do want to do that. Yeah, yeah,
but he's so busy. I mean no, it's not even busy.
He just wants to do it. I want to do it.
But I mean, will I survive? Can they hear what
they said? I don't think they can assure you if
you're going in for a finger surgery, you're gonna survive? Right,
And that's no, and that's risk. The older you get

(56:29):
probably the worst odds of surviving and having a healthy
kidney or great point, the younger you do it, the
better the kidney is.

Speaker 3 (56:36):
You know, a pamphlet they give you of like how
to live better after you donated.

Speaker 1 (56:40):
You know, he wants to read the pamphlet. Yeah, I do.
I want to do He always wants to go and
get tested and wants to donate a kidney. Cool, though, man,
story is about you. Thank you dude. It's not a
big shoutout cherish. That's what it's all about. That was
telling me something good
