Why Don' we actually actually move into some of the thecontent that we prepared for today's podcast again we have prepared content,so it's quite exciting for us been going out this for two weeks down.It's worth mentioning. We have doubled our streams on spotify, you nowherewe're over forty now so big shout out of the fan based out there andwe'rebeing approached by appetizers, left and right ats. The moment at this stage.You know we want to give you guys the best audio experience. So we're goingto leave the ads out of it. We won't sell Thatyet, we might sell out. Yet with fortystream we get to fifty, we might...

...consider it yeah. Well, take it we'lltake up one of the many companies offeri US OM marketing spend all right all right, so the first wit of preparedcontent content that we had being at home. You have a lot of timeto prepare meals. Absolutely so. Dinners have changed alittle bit. Wel. Definitely for me anyway, because I've sort of gone awayfrom takeaway food and KFC to actually have aclat, actally started cooking,actually started cooking, which is shocking, but you know sothin. You haveto do o very serious longterm girlfriends crack the Shit O God, youcul, have to start cooking something atou Gn leve out a hundred percent yeah Itslo. You have to stop ordering goodfried chicken. OES Is Gonno, get Ridiclo I'll, take od ti cuy, coy man, I've got I've got a boll of as Dan,so Tlit'LE, better Thauh. For me, oh smok, Snee Itaan. I tell Yiu all right,so the first tat good of Ober content. We thought we would compare our perfect dinner parties. You're, perfect INA party fireout. Theboys are really struggling for gear this week. So all right, so you caninvite five people around from EFO Dinner Party. Only one person of thatfive is Llod to be dead. You have to cook and They'ill directly judge you.So obviously we need to. We need to know what you're going to cook and alsowe need to know what drinks aure going to serve as well, which is obviouslyimportant. Part of any dinner party, will definitely fuck. I forgot toprepare that bit. DEFIT, definitely thegine parties that I go to and if a conflict arises, which youhope wouldn't happen, but obviously you know depends to you invite who will it bebetween and how wirl you resolve it. That's great bittygear who wants to gofirst make do you want to go first, or should I get first, this wey? No, yougot you go first, you got first, I need to Burpe Iht gonna get busy with the editing this afolow, folocom Ber Jesus Chris. What's in that pure block yeah, no IDO,I'm having no problems with my two thousand and eighteen Rese, that's a smooth drop, what a fan driall right, I'll crack on! So my perfect dinner party itit's, quite a mix I'll amet that inadvance, but it's just people aithe genuine, genuinely admire the think.They're interesting people well they're just fucking weird units and it beentertaining just watching them. Hetis ye first on my list is stepen Peter DiveroSmith, of course, and presumably Mana slabiche in his pocket. But I'm notcounting him as one of my guests, but you getit, you gon to set anotheranother spot at the table anyway. Of course yeah. I imagine spunge he's justgoing! No pass spread rolls into is pocket for Hir Gota Kir, because madge. Obviously you and I aremassive fans of hers. You know we consider ourselves because mates of his were big fans, O Kuala, mattress he's abig fand of this show it'd be a great meeting of the minds. Next on. My list would be Jo Rogan, ofcourse, famous podcast, USC commentator, standup comedian and all roundinteresting unit. Just be just because I feel like hedfacilitate the conversation. Quite well. THAT'S SMART! That's really! Smartactually genuinely write him as an intervere. You get. It gets quite a lotout of people sure next to my list- and this is the wayyou that I was talking bout though Ih've got that awhat as well. Canye West love it purely because you don't know what youGoet to get with Carne you cal go absolutely anywhere. We might get a lotof performance of...

...some absolute cunes and you know AlRound Fun Guy. I imagine tough to live with it, good God, Shatit shut out toKimh. She probably doesn't want meful job keeping him in line, but she's got a tough job that one but yeah I feel like you', be a bit ofa rear unit. Sure my dead person, because we're only load to have onewould be a vchi ar good on a Satuday night, because Youul ie biger beachyfans. Yes, I mean wake bing up when it's all over when on WISEARENA molder. I forgot the rest of it yeah that eyeah I'd like to because we watch theNextlix Docka and I hoghly recommend that is a watch. Is it still on Netflix do Yougoy, I bouly not seen it. I imagine it would still be somewherethere eaon one of the other streaming services anyway, yeah there's a Dockebout of Che's life and it's it's generally quite an interesting one. Heis a really really quite a shy. Guy Wasn't expecting that and yeah yeah. The amount of pressure on him wasinsane. So I'd like to learn a bit more about him. Also, you know he Swedishsure t we really. We really respect that. There'd be many levels to theconversation he says: Googli, CH, SOEA and my final guest, probably in a very different way. Asimilay weird unit to cadier would be Ilon mask. Oh, that would be good. MmmI's a highly intelligent guy, sue hes he's very out there and he comes up with some weird shit and Ifeel like when Canya goes off too far Joe Rogan Calms, Im Down e Lod brings the conversation down tolike a more serious and indebt level. Before Carnya ran again soe likebetween everyone, we kind of got a goove mix there. That's really good,actually, yeah yeah. I thought this tream man. I actually prepare for thispodcast. Well, so five facts, yeah Professionalis lright and what are Yoa.What are you going to cook so fors starter, I'm going to cook a JoeReggan, special elk and helopinios very good grill ti I tore hundred and sixtyfive forbit a spate and then a bit of a TradMark Dish of mine, a Fish Curry, Oh wit, just very good fish carry yeah God. Ifyou, I don't think you've ever had my fish. Carry. Have you mate? No, I thinkso. No, I only cook it he. You know birds dates. Jut geneilly goes like a good.Yeah generally goes quite well for me. So genurinely rite, my fishgarry and then final point. Also drinks thatI'm serving, obviously we want them as a sponsor for the show one day, that'skind of our main res Studi. This podcast Canadian clubs so serve CC and dry all round. ATF DOT go down well and if a conflict arises, who would itbe between and how would you resolve it? Well, I think most of the people thereare generally quite passive in conversation sure so I feel like the conflict would bebetween Canyer and himself and we wouldn't resolve it. We justkind of let him tie himself out and just watch it. So that would be my ideal dinner partywhatsbout. You made you brilit all right, so I've just started watching onNetflix. The have you seen the Michael...

Jordan show yet. Oh now it's on my list.What's it called again? Actually ie got no Ideai, the last dance. I think thelast time. That's it yes. Anyway, I would love to have Michael Jordan as aas a guests of e dinner party, because bcause obviously like you just want tochat with him. Aricaor he'd have some really interesting stories, he'sobviously a pretty like intense unit as well. So I feel it yeah it'd, be you have somegood stories so number two similar to you. I have smudge Steves me, obviously,obviously, just because becaus he smudge. Yes, do you just want to chat with himnumber A re number three. I HAVE DONALD TRUMP interesting. I was considering him.Yeah talk is thrue right. So what e's a weird unit he's such a weird unit? Ithink whatever your political allegiances, we can all agree. DoubleTrup is a bit of a weird udit yeah. No, he says he says the weirdest shit, buthe would have some he'd have some very good stories and I reckon if you gothim drunk, he would be pretty funny. I rekonhe would be too Yeah II can onthelas you be onreal, so hees when you're powerful, you could do whatevr, youwant do whatever youbout it grabe by the. So he sits to number three number. Fouris another politician, but this is my dead person would be Winston WinstonChurchill, because I love. I love the idea of Donald Trump, an which tochurch OL being at the same dinner party like one of the most favorouspoliticians in history and Donald trump, just sitting opposite each other, but Ifind that so funny an be te und real conversation between those two wellfact: Abo ther beaches, the beaches. I love the be I love the GAM orage Chan.I glow all the time and number five is John clease because likly you know who is yea yeah. Just because he's an angry old man. Itwould be so funny to have there ias going to say present day. John Policeis a very grampial fucker, exactly yeah, so I love IV love to try and, likepersonally, I love to try and hold a conversation over dinner with somebodywho just hates it so much. I like the idea, if Youm Tryig, to talkto Steve Smith about cricket as well Yeah Right Se, you had you had smart,you had trump churchill, clice, sorry where's, the second one Michael Jordan, said Mj, so much Jon, Idonold trump winto curcir and John Clas. I feel like there'd, be there'd, be twoconversations gay ar there so m Jone Magir talking about you, know thing thegoats of Thir Sport, yeah and then there's just an angry old madconversation. So Monte Patem is the bet so yeah I'd be setting Bolovae, becauseit's the only thing that I can cook and I back and I back my Bolanas in anysituation- drinks wise. I would go a top shelf,whiskey pad or not necessarily head, but with aSouth Australian red wine, probably probably a grange. Oh, but IM, onthegrance, you know a classic penty Grange, you thon, I said a top shelf whiskey.Can you name a topshelf whiskey, perhaps something like her Biki, like aJapanese Whiskey, it's very nice. Yes, I've had one of them before or a Lig ofo Likof vauns very smoky, quite a quite a nice, quite a nice drom and there would definitely be conflict andthat- and that is it, and that is why that is why I want this Dida Party tohappen, but I feel like it would come. It be like a little bit of a left fieldconflict. I'm going to say it's going to be between SMUDGE and MJ.

Everyy knows how competitive MichaelJordan is, and I can just see that they wouldchallenge each other to like a free, throu contest or something like thatand smudge would beat him because Jis Magkids, O smuch Coan, do anything.Soay and he's very well rested from you know his Coala mantress exactly so I'malmost certain that that would be how the conflict arises and I feel like with Michael Jordan. You wouldn't beable to resolve that conflict. It would just be something that continuesforever. I know that smudge would offer himAkuila mattress and I feel like he would decline it. Just because he's Imean he's a bit of a prick as well, so I feel like that. Wel definitely heldscrudges yeah did HEU hear when he got inducted. I can't rnow. I don't followthe MBEA that much, but I think he got induct into the whalle of fame orsomething, and he was just talking shit about sports journalist Di. You ever see that e just pens, the entire t he doesn'ttake his teammates or anything you just literally talking Shit about you list,you id a shit, six rings bitch six ree, so yeah Kay, that's the Baseif YeahOgan. That would be a deal dinner party purely because I'd love to see how muchconflict would come from that that Baly those five weides units coming together,Thad. That is a very good dinner party. I feel like both of those be extremelyentertaining and if I wasn't at your one, I'd love to just be a Flan te wall.Hundred percent, bing theyd be hilarious. O youee got Tovit in eachother to Indin a partis, but that's all right yeah. Maybe we can just assume that wewere just probably cooking together, Yeah Ob. Obviously your in your very seriouslong time girlfriend are invited to my dinner party Thanky, you thank you. You might be envided to house, we'llsee we'll see wee het. We got seeting o Itity for six, so I want to see what happens moving swiftly on ECAS. You know: We'veall got places to be in Shit. Our next bit of Prepargi for this Combois talking about a situation that I feel like make is going to acare a lot after ISO, so touch touchwordwhen all this Corana stuff finishes, hopefully in the near future. Thenumbers re looking pretty good here in Suny, Australia, very Tue. A lot of people are going to be meetingtheir partners, parents, the first time, Hu, it's a very tricky situation Y, a lovely partner. You know whateveryoure into parents, hit you with tha dreaded. So when am I going to meetinse partner, name Wa rea bit, so what we thought wed discuss today isthe logistics are of meeting your partners. Parents Welcome to the love corner. What kindof like the bestworst in county you've ever had doing this? If you can talkabout it, which parentd you want to impress themum or the Dad, and why? What should you do to get them on side? Handy tips there, because you know, Godknows we all need Hem, and what should she absolutely avoid saying doing atall casts good one all right. I know that's why Iwrote it okay, so the best encounter I'm tryingto think I've. Never don't think I'm trying to t I've never had a badencounter. I don't think with the parent. Well, first off how many times are youmet? Thei mean you know before your very serious longtep girlfriend youwere bit of a hunker spank back in the...

...day. I remember we used to go out on thetown and I'd be fighting the mafe with a stick like seriously is next levelIto. I think I've met three parents or three sets of parent three sets parent, yet none ove ever gone badly. I can'tcan t remember I can't remember one either standing out as Beeng the best.Actually, the most recent one was pretty fun. We went to a pub and Platdarks and stuff. That was good, but I think yeah. I can't think ofanything, that's sort of really stood out, but I think when youdo meet the parents, I think wmy approach as always being to impress themom, because I feel like particularly Mabin mading, a God, I think, meaning agirl's Dad. I think he's much easier than meeting the mom. Obviously I thinkit det it would depend on the relationship as well and I feel like,if you're, in a relationship with a person for like you, know decent amountof time before meeting the parents. You can probably work out which one thatyou need to target based on based on what they've saidabout them, but definitely my experience its alwaysbeen the mums and often yeah, often it's sort of justbeing, I think, just being sort of polite. Doing the general sort of youknow the general, how you being how you doing chat kind of thing, nothing, that's sort of crazy. No withthe with the DADS. I think it's a much easier because Yiou you can talk aboutthings like sport and you can. You can go bit more. I guess in your well, I mean I meantouchword, I mean sometimes theyr. You know, Inter Theater, for Shit like thatYeah H, that's that's what you just walks straight out of the pub Youe likea no relationships worth this yeah I've. Never Forte've never hadthat either. I've had a few that haven't been overly interested in thesport, but I feel like I could always drag it back to that sort ofconversation anyway, speaking of Su but yea, no, I think definitely yeah.I've always felt ith some mom and then the yeah then the Dad. Yet you justtalking about sportor or whatever you need to to get by yeah. There's nothing, it's somethingthat Yo. I think you need to do specifically to get them on the side.I've, never I've! Wel I mean I don't know, maybe maybe the ones of the ovendon't like me, but I think I think yeah, I think all youcan do is jis be be very. You know polite. What you definitely shouldn'tdo is obviously it talks about sort of even being within the same room as eachother at night. I feel like that's a Litte, yes, yeah, that's something!That's something like if you sort of drop ints that you know like. Oh our mattressis reallyhard or something at the moment, then you're get in a favorit of trouble,hyeah. What's a bad Mo, I back that Lig required there. The batteress that I'mplouing you thougteon yeah, exactly O. I feel like I feel, like reverse O,like that. I think that's for us. I feel like girls talking to our parents,though I don't think there's anything. That's kind of off like off limits like I don't think,there's anything that my girlfriend could say that would put my parents off yeah right, I mean I mean personalitywise, probably, but nothing about. Like I mean to be fair. Your parents areexceptionally wonderful people n. You Dad good. Looking Roosen like yourself,you mom solto the lovely woman, but I feel like yeah. I don't think,there's anything and I think actually reverse. I don'tthink I I think it's definitely the mum that you have to impress from likebeing a son. I think you have to impress the mom like Ota hundred percent agree withthat I mean I'm just thinking of my family and bring it bring a girl home. It'sdefinitely my momy want to impress and my mom's, not a woman. You want to geton the wrong side of no. I think I think I'm almost sitting there at themoment, bloody close at one point IcaN'tremember when Werewere at dinner,...

...and I was taxing my girlfriend and shehated th those on my phone. Oh Yeah. She really does lite that I think thattheewas definitely that one I also break it out. I SAI break youroundplaying cor, get that was good. Oh that's, right! Yeah! That's a conistory, O well cheat in for episode. Six FAKS Thatwt we'll discuss it. Then Dor ight, have you broken any? Have youmates broken any of your bones and why there Yougo we're creating content forthe next episode on this episode? That's how organized wea, Ta Damn ther all right. I think I've been speakingfor too long. So I think you need to you need to provide your your input onthis. I completely agree. Look I M. I don' do the best inrelationship as I'm sure you can attest to wouldn't know each other. A fewyears now I've only met the parents once and I haven't actually told youthis story e Al of a girl. I went on a few dates.Whith, I wouldn't say we were in a relationship, a Sucha we kind of in youknow that annoying stage, if you don't know how to define it, sure sure it'sjust a bit. Awkwarder people like what are you like, my my Atser, my God, I god Youv, sat inthat position. A lost Oyeah can get out of Second Gamei. Youare you. You are the mayor of that position, I' The kingiit Secondgear Ki overwe out wearing a clutch. So I've only done this once and itactually happened to be this girl's leaving party. She was going back to her own country. APPARENTS TA come overfor the kind of celebration thing and they were not impressed with me at all. I rivlate I had to work like that. Ditthere's a bit of an emergency at work ar nothing in common with the parents.They were New Zealanders, so they're really hard to Understanan for Thisilly accent. Of course. I was extremely nervous because I'venever been in the situation before and arriving a bit late. I may have poweredinto the bebvies a little hard on an empty stomach sure tripping over words like I'm doing now, and then you know tried to new Zeala choke totest the waters. It did not go down. Well, I should have let there you no no. Doyou want to repreat the joke? No IIDN, subsequently added five or sixmore on top of that so yeah that did not go down particularly well, but onething I would say: If you're a guy meeting your girlfriends parents, Ifeel like the dad's, the one toimpress Ow, which is wise, whereas if you're a girl meeting yourboyfriend's parents, it's the mom that you've got to impress yeah sure kind of the whole mammas boy, Daddy'sgirl, kind of thing: okay, Itjrestin, that's that's my theory on it, some toptips. I feel like at the Riepile mid tweties that we're at some ways to get the parents on sideshow a bit of financial security without flaunting cash. Sure, like likemaybe don't get the cheapest wide of the bed like the second cheapest, so youre, saving cash beaten on atigtash sure shut, show a decent sense of humor, butobviously go as tame as possible to start and then slowly work up until hefind the line yeah. It's kind of my approach to sex as well show a lot of respect and avoid anyremotely controversial topic and at absolute allcasts, avoid anydiscussions to hint a anything even remotely sexual. The LA thing they wantto think about is you ploughing their...

...child, you on daughter, whatever youare sure sure? No. I can completely understand that. Do you think one of the reasons whyperhaps meeting the New Zealand parents didn't go as well as because there wasthe there was a really high possibility that the word jendls could be talkedabout within a conversation that was actually my second an three years OJ.Now how many I I I think I did five or six that was number two on the list andthey really didn't like that, because don't think they'd left New Zealandbefore so they work Familia. That jandals wasn't a thing AF. They thought I was tike at the PUSStiking the pus. I said: that's a but Roch T neeles O say that on did not go toowell fortly. Did you use the joke? Did you use thejoke? What do you call ha sheep tied to a Lay Post lessou center? It something rid of it yeah. Absolutely,let's go to the Leger senser dget, all New Zealand, a country withthe men ar man and the sheep and Thertis Very Das, herry nervous, yeah. I've never see I', never see thecountry of such twit twnt sheep. Before I have Wales, ver, true, very true, very civilar, moving on from insulting other nationsthat ar big fans in the show big Shautat, an you seel on the whales,longtime fans of the show sure I thought this might be a good one foryou to introduce Mye, because this this is a subject. That's particularly closeto my heart: okay, okay, I'm happy to do this. One cooped up couples spendinga lot of time together at the moment, and I think often, the the moviechoices or the TV Cho choices fall down to the girl. If you're, like you know,living with a partner and in wantto stay in that relationship, YEA YEP andin most cases they turn they end up being romatic comedies. So I thoughtthat today we can debate about what is the greatest romantic comedy of alltime, TV and movie chats I just over an nows.I came up with this. Second Really, really, you really did so. It says not.Every guy enjoys them fucking of that's true yeah. So this is. This is aparticularly tough topic for me, because I had to google greatestfromagic comedies of all type about an hour ago, and I hadn't seen any of thetop twenty. What soid you know that, based onwhatever might ban IMDB or whatever it was that the movie that I saw that washighest rated was. Is it crazy, stupid love? I've never seen that either? Actually,the one with them Ryan, Gosling and Steve Corrow? How thefuck is groundhog day aromatic comedy you googling et er, okay, but YEP, so that was the that was thethe movie of the top twenty twenty five or whatever that I actually seen so,and I find it quite hard that I can debate you that that is the greatestRobin Com of all time, because even I don't think that and I'is really onethat I've seen. So I feel like I'm going to have to defer a lot of the ofthis segment to you purely because I don't how much you love romaticcompanies. I think, every time a evyons goneant anyway yeah every time thatI've got into your place like and it's like the after criket or something likethat. We're like! Oh, let's, just watch a movie like your eyes, light up at thefact that the possibility that we can...

...watch a romatic comedy, I really enjoy a because you hate themthe same way. I hate horror, movies and B. It's just it's just a wonderfultime all round. I think you sloppy romantic at Hart Sureas, you can't feel yeah. They docall me the tin man. All right, so I think e're GOINGTA haveto pass this on to you and I think We'e just have to talk about whatever youdecide be the greatest Roementic company of all time. Yes, we greed, youTathis podcast, so sam get ready to cut out like the next ia hour and a half ofme talking and cut it down to about five minutes. Why not taking a picture avalliblepicture a verbal pitcter the year is one thousand nine hundred and ninetynine Richard Curtis.

I can't say that I know it fuck sake. Bak come op, it's Notting Hill Ave, yet I'v not seen it, but yet unreal movie, O anyone who hasn't seen at home doyourself a favor pauls. This right now don't care if you're at work orwhatever. I think it's only about an hour and ahalf chuck on Nodding Hill Indoyuself at apsolite later words hard to find when it comes todescribing this movie, because I'm so in love with the concept. Everythingabout this movie is deadset perfect right. The cast you' Talking S Cugranbefore he became he sleesy old man, and he was the cute bumbling Englishman. Soyou've got Julia Roberts. I think post pretty woman, so she had a bit of aname that, but she wasn't like as massive superstart, yet sure recifanse, always a cracking guy. Thisdecent actor as well I'v Aid Wells unconsent. The film is all about Q.Gran, O connstantly plays the bunbling Englishmen. I know shock different rol,kifferent role or the HM. He plays a bookshop oner and Juliarobarts is like the biggest fillm star in the world. She happens to go intohis bookshop by book they bump into each other hilarity anhues. I don't. IHo a small, the entire plot, there's a bit of toing and fhrelling, there's some great music Ronan kidding.When you say nothing at all, Oh that's a Bagger, oh absolute banger! Do you want to give us a little bit ofrunning kin when you say nothing? I COM ROR, the rest of the song. What's hisMalla, your F Faceo that Yho need me the truth in your Soh of the look anyour eyes. LET'S ME NOO! Your Ha means youCACWERII have to cut this out. LETER, you say: BES WHERN! You say nothing at all. I like Ie, very wide. At the end, thereshills literal chuce, there's some absolute stunning linesfrom this movie.

I'M gonna go through a couple of themright, actually actually Bek. I know youfeedback on some of these lights, so Julia Roberts character. Can I stay for a while Yo grants character, you can stay forever. Sat the line. That's Te Life 'let's be all right. How about thislike? This? Is the iconic line from the movie, so you've insult this I'll fuckyou up when we get out of visolation, obviously not going to break iselationfor this hegrats character. I live in NottingHill. You live in Beverly Hills. Everyone in the world knows who you are.My mother has trouble remembering my name: Julia Roberts character after a massivepause, but don't forget I'm also just a girlstanding in front of a boy asking him to love her se, ces I', actually welling up a little bitthat seen moves me every single time. Why is that I've heard that so manytimes that SEM? Why is that mean to be ICOTIC? Look the movieis an absolute journey. Actually Lait can I just. Can I justhave a wile guess here at some point during the movie. This ismisunderstanding: Commany Rigt thes several: do they perhaps feel distant from each other? At thestart they get really really close and then huggrant does something that maybepushes them away and then at the end they have to get back together. You think you could predict a movielike that. No IT'S JULIAN ROBITS! That does something no way does she threaten to go back toAmerica. I can't say because it'll bruin movie, but you know what yeah spoiler all itand I'll just leave a bit of a pause there so keep you can choon out for thenext couple of minutes. The last scene of the movie is She's doing a pressconference for her next movie and he breaks into the press conference andpretends to be a journay to ask her a question after he previously rejectedher and she was going to move back to the states to do more movies. He asksher a couple of softbale questions and implies that he wants to get backtogether with her. Then she askses Nan a gournalist to repeat his earlierquestion because Anna, how long will you be staying in the UK? She looks athe brown in the eye. There's a pause, ronnind kitting sortof slowly faded in in the background she goes indefinitely, shills. Definitely what I'm fucking stupid, Ra night shut up Kik Richard Cirdis, honestly, I don't just think it's thegreatest wrong comoball time. I think it's probably in my top tenfavorite movies of all time. Oh my God. It's just stanning! Do yourself a favorwatch it you know you're home with you very serious, long, tem girlfriend, I'msure she'll get around it. No, I think I'm right, but based on how I've described it,what would you give it out of tic? I mean it. Doesn't time, there's a lot toway up here yeah. It sounds like a very solid, like seven yeah, I think, about sevents of EAHAVF. If you just decided that you'd left theconversation right severed and a half like Fashon, thefurious was a seven o, the half itwas,...

...a brilliant film and the rock punchinga missipe no cast dat was like a night come on.
