Tell that to the baby mamas out there reading on this late anyways, 26 00:02:00.719 --> 00:02:04.159 Dam man, but, like you know, people just don't don't want 27 00:02:04.159 --> 00:02:07.040 to work or not able to work or whatever it is, you know. 28 00:02:07.079 --> 00:02:08.759 But okay, now there's now I know what you're talking about. Not Talking 29 00:02:08.759 --> 00:02:14.240 about babies, talking about jobs, jobs, right, like Jay, you 30 00:02:14.280 --> 00:02:16.759 know, I'm and it. Yeah, and dud didn't. Seems like everywhere 31 00:02:16.759 --> 00:02:22.400 you go there's people like they're looking for workers. Dude, you go to 32 00:02:22.479 --> 00:02:24.599 go to eat at a restaurant, like you know, it takes forever to 33 00:02:24.639 --> 00:02:28.840 get, you know, to get service or whatever. Like what was it 34 00:02:28.879 --> 00:02:30.360 like? A couple weeks ago, I was in Fresno, you know, 35 00:02:30.479 --> 00:02:35.919 kicking it whatever, went to go, you know, just have you know, 36 00:02:36.039 --> 00:02:38.280 just like in the afternoon, go grab a grab a beer and, 37 00:02:38.479 --> 00:02:42.199 you know, grab some you know, snacks or whatever, like, you 38 00:02:42.240 --> 00:02:46.280 know, finger foods, and dud. It took them forever to serve us. 39 00:02:46.280 --> 00:02:49.199 And, you know, we realize it was one person working the whole 40 00:02:49.280 --> 00:02:53.199 damn restaurant. Well, two people to cook. The Cook and the bartender 41 00:02:53.199 --> 00:02:58.080 will the only people working in this little pub, right. That's it. 42 00:02:58.199 --> 00:03:00.560 So like she was fucking you know, serve and drinks, taking orders, 43 00:03:00.599 --> 00:03:05.080 busing shit and this and that. So that's why I took forever and we 44 00:03:05.080 --> 00:03:07.000 felt bad. We're like, Oh man, you know, I'm we're not 45 00:03:07.039 --> 00:03:10.159 trying to hate on this place because obviously this these people are fucking hard working. 46 00:03:10.120 --> 00:03:14.159 You know, they're there by themselves trying to the best. Yeah, 47 00:03:14.240 --> 00:03:15.599 but, you know, I mean like, you know, we understand, 48 00:03:15.639 --> 00:03:19.479 like hey, man, like you don't need a couple more people to add 49 00:03:19.479 --> 00:03:21.599 to your stress. So we end up just saying hey, you know, 50 00:03:21.680 --> 00:03:24.240 think you anyways. And you know, we just went somewhere else. So 51 00:03:24.400 --> 00:03:28.439 we understood. But you know, like that's the kind of shit you see 52 00:03:28.560 --> 00:03:30.520 more often now. So I started, you know, reading articles about why 53 00:03:30.560 --> 00:03:34.479 that is, and that's what I'm going to talk about today and some things 54 00:03:34.520 --> 00:03:37.960 that we might be able to, you know, do to help us with 55 00:03:38.039 --> 00:03:43.439 this whole situation. Well, that was a long way of telling us that 56 00:03:43.479 --> 00:03:46.879 you're gonna be talking about the labor shortage. All right, yes, good, 57 00:03:47.039 --> 00:03:50.560 it's good. Tell a good, strong foundation. I like that. 58 00:03:50.599 --> 00:03:53.319 I like that. Yeah, what about you? What do you what do 59 00:03:53.400 --> 00:03:58.479 you talk to us about today? All, I'M gonna be talking about our 60 00:03:59.680 --> 00:04:03.360 superhero are our podcast superhero, Joe Rogan. So I'M gonna be talking a 61 00:04:03.360 --> 00:04:06.719 little bit about him. He's been in the news late Lya for not some 62 00:04:06.879 --> 00:04:11.680 not so good reasons, but I really want to talk about all the reasons, 63 00:04:11.719 --> 00:04:15.959 good and bad. Okay, all right, sounds interesting. Now, 64 00:04:16.160 --> 00:04:20.360 see that that you you just like tickled. You know my interest. You 65 00:04:20.399 --> 00:04:24.839 Pique my interests there. So you know, I was going to say something 66 00:04:24.879 --> 00:04:30.959 else, but never mind this bringing gi right now. anyways. anyways, 67 00:04:31.199 --> 00:04:36.800 all right, so why me to start soften kick it off home boy. 68 00:04:38.800 --> 00:04:41.560 Cool, all right, Matt. So, like I said, man, 69 00:04:42.360 --> 00:04:45.800 you know the articles that I've been reading. We're just talking about how, 70 00:04:45.959 --> 00:04:48.079 like this is a nationwide issue, right, like this whole labor shortage. 71 00:04:48.480 --> 00:04:53.560 They're just not enough people out there wanting to work or willing to work or 72 00:04:53.600 --> 00:04:56.720 whatever it is. You know, fit various reasons. You know, some 73 00:04:56.839 --> 00:05:00.800 people are just they got comfortable with covid you know, getting that paycheck unemployment. 74 00:05:00.879 --> 00:05:03.160 You know, they don't have to worry about it. Other people, 75 00:05:03.279 --> 00:05:05.000 you know, man, maybe they were just burnt out. You know, 76 00:05:05.120 --> 00:05:09.519 they know, just fucking got tired of working. You know, they were 77 00:05:09.600 --> 00:05:12.560 got tired of the low wages, or a combination of it all, I 78 00:05:12.639 --> 00:05:15.399 don't know. You know, there's there's experts out there who whose job it 79 00:05:15.519 --> 00:05:18.680 is who try to figure this shit out and they're still arguing about it. 80 00:05:18.759 --> 00:05:23.160 So I'm not even going to attend to to even, you know, think 81 00:05:23.199 --> 00:05:26.959 about why that might be, because fuck if they can't figure it out, 82 00:05:27.120 --> 00:05:30.319 I'm not gonna figure it out. But the point is that, you know 83 00:05:30.319 --> 00:05:32.000 what I mean, they're the point is that there's like all kinds of shit 84 00:05:32.079 --> 00:05:38.240 out there. There's just the reasons why people aren't working. So, you 85 00:05:38.360 --> 00:05:41.439 know, that kind of puts pressure on the whole system. Right there's a 86 00:05:41.480 --> 00:05:45.480 reason why we're not getting our packages in time. All kinds of fucking supply 87 00:05:45.600 --> 00:05:47.920 chain issues, like I said before, like you go to restaurant, you 88 00:05:47.959 --> 00:05:53.000 know you don't have the service that you once did. And you know just, 89 00:05:53.399 --> 00:05:57.480 you know, just if you're in the industry where or you're in a 90 00:05:57.519 --> 00:06:00.519 position where you have to hire people, like I do, you know it 91 00:06:00.639 --> 00:06:03.319 makes your job extra harder, you know, just because you're you want to 92 00:06:03.399 --> 00:06:08.120 have people there to help you run your business or whatever it is, and 93 00:06:09.560 --> 00:06:12.560 it's they're really hard to fund. It just takes a lot more effort to 94 00:06:12.639 --> 00:06:15.920 find those people. So, you know, the articles that I was reading, 95 00:06:15.240 --> 00:06:18.120 they were talking about that and what can we do, or what cause 96 00:06:18.279 --> 00:06:20.959 or whatever? What is some of the reasons? And again it's hard to 97 00:06:21.040 --> 00:06:24.279 tell what caused it. But one of the things that, you know, 98 00:06:24.519 --> 00:06:28.439 are consistently. I've been looking at and I've you know, there's three different 99 00:06:28.560 --> 00:06:31.959 articles that I've read. One of them is from Market Watch. It's an 100 00:06:32.000 --> 00:06:35.120 opinion piece, but I still think it's still worth reading, and that was 101 00:06:35.160 --> 00:06:41.480 published in January of this year. And then there was a another article published 102 00:06:41.480 --> 00:06:44.959 by Forbes in November two thousand and twenty one, and then there was another 103 00:06:45.079 --> 00:06:50.439 article that I looked up recently published by NBC Meat Depress and that was published 104 00:06:50.519 --> 00:06:56.319 January ninth of this year. So they all three are fairly reason and a 105 00:06:56.439 --> 00:07:00.279 recent and they they all kind of say the same thing. And one of 106 00:07:00.360 --> 00:07:04.399 them has to do with immigration. Dude. You know, immigration has dwindled 107 00:07:04.639 --> 00:07:09.560 over the past few years for many reasons. You know, one of them, 108 00:07:09.920 --> 00:07:15.720 you know, immigration policies is under the last administration, you know kind 109 00:07:15.759 --> 00:07:19.439 of you know, they got tougher. You know what I mean? That 110 00:07:19.680 --> 00:07:25.240 a lot of a lot of restrictions were placed on immigration during the last administration. 111 00:07:26.120 --> 00:07:29.360 That has still cared over to this administration. Nothing has really changed there. 112 00:07:29.759 --> 00:07:33.439 So that kind of kepts more people from coming to the country. And 113 00:07:33.480 --> 00:07:41.000 I'm talking about not just, you know, undocumented or unlawful entries, but 114 00:07:41.120 --> 00:07:44.920 also, you know, just legal migration. Do you like, you know, 115 00:07:45.000 --> 00:07:48.319 people applying for work visas or people coming in for, you know, 116 00:07:48.480 --> 00:07:54.480 refugee visas and stuff like that, like all these different people that normally would 117 00:07:54.519 --> 00:07:58.199 be here in the states are no longer here. And some of the articles 118 00:07:58.279 --> 00:08:01.839 that I was reading, actually all three of these articles, were staying that 119 00:08:01.959 --> 00:08:09.720 you know, most immigrants, more immigrants, will go towards service industries, 120 00:08:09.720 --> 00:08:15.720 like more than native born workers. So, to give an example, it 121 00:08:16.079 --> 00:08:20.360 like they they had a statistic that said that, you know, in the 122 00:08:20.399 --> 00:08:28.240 service industry you would find maybe eight percent of the like an eight percent difference 123 00:08:28.920 --> 00:08:33.840 in the people who go into a service industry who are native born versus foreign 124 00:08:33.919 --> 00:08:39.679 born or, you know, just immigrants, so meaning that when you have 125 00:08:39.840 --> 00:08:46.159 such a big reduction in the workforce of immigration, it causes less people to 126 00:08:46.279 --> 00:08:48.799 be available to work in those industries. So that's why you see a lot 127 00:08:48.840 --> 00:08:54.159 of those shortages. The same thing goes for like deliveries, delivery drivers and 128 00:08:54.480 --> 00:09:01.919 people in manufacturing. So that's part of it and a lot of it can 129 00:09:01.039 --> 00:09:09.159 be fixed if we were able to process those visas quicker, because right now 130 00:09:09.200 --> 00:09:15.200 there's like an eight months to one year backlog in processing these visas or work 131 00:09:15.240 --> 00:09:20.279 permits for people waiting for them and you know, they're really just they're waiting 132 00:09:20.360 --> 00:09:24.159 to be stamped, you know what I'm saying, like they're just you know, 133 00:09:24.279 --> 00:09:30.799 the they you you see, CIS, which is the department that approves 134 00:09:30.840 --> 00:09:33.679 these visits, is just like super backlog. They don't have the manpower, 135 00:09:33.720 --> 00:09:37.759 they don't have the people to review them and approve them, and that could 136 00:09:37.799 --> 00:09:43.840 be fixed if we were able to expand their budget and get them to hire 137 00:09:43.919 --> 00:09:48.120 more people so that way they can process all these permits and visas. So 138 00:09:48.320 --> 00:09:54.720 but that's kind of like an immediate, you know, like a real quick 139 00:09:54.960 --> 00:10:00.679 type of a fix, and it won't solve the whole thing because there's not 140 00:10:00.919 --> 00:10:05.840 really there's not enough of these these people to, you know, to fill 141 00:10:05.960 --> 00:10:09.399 all the vacant spots that are out there. So there's still a lot more. 142 00:10:09.679 --> 00:10:16.919 But the biggest thing is that while we do have this immediate shortage, 143 00:10:16.320 --> 00:10:20.919 in the future, all three articles are saying that we're going to have a 144 00:10:22.000 --> 00:10:26.080 bigger issue in the future because what's going to happen is a lot of the 145 00:10:26.120 --> 00:10:33.720 baby boomers have started to retire right HMM, so that we don't have enough 146 00:10:33.840 --> 00:10:37.480 workers, for native born workers, to replace all those people that are going 147 00:10:37.519 --> 00:10:41.039 to be retiring in the next, I don't know, ten years. So 148 00:10:41.159 --> 00:10:46.519 they've already started to retire. That's another reason, another part of the problem 149 00:10:46.639 --> 00:10:50.200 that we did we have the shortage is that we're now seeing the effects of 150 00:10:50.279 --> 00:10:56.039 the baby boom or generation retiring and not enough people entering the workforce to also 151 00:10:56.279 --> 00:10:58.960 make up for that deficit, and that's going to continue happening for the next 152 00:11:00.080 --> 00:11:03.279 ten years, even twenty years down the road. They're just there. There 153 00:11:03.480 --> 00:11:09.639 isn't as many people being born after that generation to meet that demand. So 154 00:11:11.639 --> 00:11:16.559 that's what these articles kind of mainly focus on. Is Long Term Immigration is, 155 00:11:16.840 --> 00:11:18.120 you know, how can we make it so that will we have a 156 00:11:18.159 --> 00:11:22.879 stable supply of labor in the states to fill all these different positions? And 157 00:11:24.039 --> 00:11:26.919 Yeah, immigration is a great way to do that. The problem is, 158 00:11:28.039 --> 00:11:33.759 you know, the sentiments around in this country, you know, concerning immigration, 159 00:11:33.799 --> 00:11:37.799 country routing. It's been. It's been awfully you know what I mean. 160 00:11:37.200 --> 00:11:39.759 There's lies, I been told, and just you know, myth. 161 00:11:41.320 --> 00:11:45.399 Yeah, so it's you know, it's sad too, because look, on 162 00:11:45.600 --> 00:11:50.559 one side I get it kind of right, like people are afraid, like 163 00:11:50.799 --> 00:11:54.720 of who knows what, you know, the boogeyman coming over and, you 164 00:11:54.799 --> 00:11:56.840 know, running amuck and I'd states, you know, in your hometown care 165 00:11:58.759 --> 00:12:03.720 and here are we and we worried about funds, though, Alinda heroin, 166 00:12:03.240 --> 00:12:07.679 not at the country. I get that and I get that right, because 167 00:12:09.320 --> 00:12:13.320 anybody would be scared of, you know, or worried about their family and 168 00:12:13.480 --> 00:12:18.039 the effect right on our country. I get it. I get the sentiment 169 00:12:18.919 --> 00:12:20.600 and you know, one of the biggest talking points for a lot of people 170 00:12:20.720 --> 00:12:24.360 is like well, I you know, I just don't like illegal immigration. 171 00:12:24.440 --> 00:12:26.960 If you do it the legal way, there's no problem, right. So 172 00:12:28.200 --> 00:12:33.240 I have a big problem with those that statement, and my problem with that 173 00:12:33.360 --> 00:12:39.960 statement is that in the the the process to migrate legally is so difficult, 174 00:12:41.240 --> 00:12:46.600 very difficult, even under normal some circumstances. Like right now, like I 175 00:12:46.639 --> 00:12:50.320 said, there's this backlog of eight to two one eight months to one year 176 00:12:50.639 --> 00:12:54.799 to process these work permits and visis. Dude, there's always a backlog, 177 00:12:56.200 --> 00:12:58.639 there's always and there's all these hoops that people have to jump through that are 178 00:12:58.720 --> 00:13:03.120 just so unnecessary. Not to mention that. But you know, the our 179 00:13:03.200 --> 00:13:07.399 system here, and I'd says for immigration, is not the best. There's 180 00:13:07.480 --> 00:13:13.039 other systems that other countries adopt that actually have a much better way of recognizing, 181 00:13:13.440 --> 00:13:18.360 you know, who might be able to immigrate a lot quicker and accurately, 182 00:13:18.480 --> 00:13:22.919 and then also, you know, you get to see who these people 183 00:13:22.960 --> 00:13:26.960 are like. That's the whole point, right, like you want to be 184 00:13:26.039 --> 00:13:31.200 able to create a system where people can be vetted, but be vetted in 185 00:13:31.279 --> 00:13:35.720 a timely manner, so that way they can make its United States and benefit 186 00:13:35.799 --> 00:13:39.679 not only them. Because, look, the reality is the United States is 187 00:13:39.759 --> 00:13:45.399 going to always going to be like a nation of immigrants and it depends on 188 00:13:45.480 --> 00:13:48.720 immigrant labor. You'd it always has, no matter what, from the very 189 00:13:48.799 --> 00:13:52.879 inception, you know what I mean, like not to take it back to 190 00:13:52.000 --> 00:13:56.519 this era, but tod white slavery, you know what I mean, like 191 00:13:56.720 --> 00:14:01.960 that was a whole point of alium. They important people, Empire, state 192 00:14:03.200 --> 00:14:09.960 building. Yeah, so, you know, to it to ignore that, 193 00:14:09.759 --> 00:14:15.240 you know, immigrants played and still continue to play in a pivotal role in 194 00:14:15.600 --> 00:14:20.600 what America is is not a good idea, man, it's ignorant, you 195 00:14:20.639 --> 00:14:28.240 know I mean. So, yeah, it just truth that with immigrant like 196 00:14:28.039 --> 00:14:31.799 right, and it's going to continue to do so, it continues to need 197 00:14:31.879 --> 00:14:35.639 it. So just to continue to vilify immigrants is a terrible thing to do. 198 00:14:37.360 --> 00:14:41.080 You know, not just for you know, like just for the sake 199 00:14:41.159 --> 00:14:45.360 of people in humanity, but also just look at it at in terms of 200 00:14:45.480 --> 00:14:48.399 the United States being prosperous and of continuing to be a prospers nation. It 201 00:14:48.559 --> 00:14:56.240 needs immigrants and they have to be able to have a way to come here 202 00:14:56.399 --> 00:15:01.919 to work in you know, eventually integrate and become part of American society. 203 00:15:01.919 --> 00:15:03.960 You know what I mean? Like my GRANDPA was part of the BAS settle 204 00:15:05.039 --> 00:15:09.200 program back in the day. That was a you know, that wasn't the 205 00:15:09.240 --> 00:15:15.200 greatest program, but it was not but exactly exactly, you know what I 206 00:15:15.279 --> 00:15:18.279 mean, if it was tweaked, if there was a different way of doing 207 00:15:18.440 --> 00:15:22.000 things, you know, you know, some countries have like we call the 208 00:15:22.080 --> 00:15:28.200 point system where, you know, you fill out the application and for different 209 00:15:28.279 --> 00:15:31.919 in the skills and things like that, that you have education, if you 210 00:15:31.960 --> 00:15:35.080 speak English, you know, different things like that, they award you points. 211 00:15:35.679 --> 00:15:39.759 The more points you have, the more likely you are to be able 212 00:15:39.840 --> 00:15:43.679 to be granted, you know, a visa to come to United States or 213 00:15:43.799 --> 00:15:48.679 to to be go into the country, and that's something that we can try, 214 00:15:48.759 --> 00:15:52.639 you know, depending on what the needs of the labor market are at 215 00:15:52.679 --> 00:15:54.399 that point. You know what I mean, like if we need more engineers, 216 00:15:54.480 --> 00:15:58.759 and of course those are people are going to people would engineering experience and 217 00:15:58.799 --> 00:16:03.360 backgrounds are going to get priority. You know, if we need farm laborers, 218 00:16:03.519 --> 00:16:04.879 for example, you know, we can have different grants here for them. 219 00:16:06.039 --> 00:16:11.120 You know, I'm saying so you can develop these systems to help us 220 00:16:11.960 --> 00:16:17.200 United States and help you know, anybody who's willing and able to come to 221 00:16:17.320 --> 00:16:19.720 United States to find work and a chance of the better life, man, 222 00:16:19.759 --> 00:16:22.720 because that's all we're here to do, right. We all want the same 223 00:16:22.840 --> 00:16:30.159 thing, for sure. Yeah, and that's my topic, man. That's 224 00:16:30.200 --> 00:16:33.080 what's up and that was cool. That's very informative. Man, D when 225 00:16:33.159 --> 00:16:38.360 you were researching this, where their countries that used that you remember reading about 226 00:16:38.559 --> 00:16:41.799 that have a because you mentioned that there are some countries that have a better 227 00:16:41.879 --> 00:16:47.120 processing, a better way of processing immigration. Do you remember recalling any countries 228 00:16:47.120 --> 00:16:52.320 off the time? One of them was Canada. Canada has a similar system 229 00:16:52.399 --> 00:16:56.600 like that, I know right. And the other one, man, I 230 00:16:56.679 --> 00:16:59.600 got to look for it. Let me see, I wrote it down. 231 00:16:59.679 --> 00:17:03.639 Let me see if my notes, but it was some it was a country 232 00:17:03.679 --> 00:17:07.440 in your I think it might have been France, but I can look that 233 00:17:07.599 --> 00:17:10.319 up and see you. But yeah, there's a few countries that have that 234 00:17:11.119 --> 00:17:15.880 have a system like that and I think, if I'm not mistaken, our 235 00:17:15.000 --> 00:17:19.640 current system United States is like the lottery system, where you basically just people 236 00:17:19.680 --> 00:17:23.599 apply and then you know whoever, just luck of the draw. And yes, 237 00:17:23.680 --> 00:17:27.680 that's why doesn't see you can really vision anybody that? Well, I 238 00:17:27.759 --> 00:17:30.759 mean obviously, obviously they're going to make you, you know. I mean 239 00:17:30.920 --> 00:17:34.279 working past the background checking all that, right, right, and then once 240 00:17:34.400 --> 00:17:37.119 that happens and they like Oh, yeah, well, look, you know, 241 00:17:37.400 --> 00:17:42.160 good, here it is. Well, before it gets to the lucky 242 00:17:42.319 --> 00:17:47.200 draw there's a process already in place. Yeah, so it's not like Oh, 243 00:17:47.359 --> 00:17:49.599 number twenty seven, you get to come across, right, right, 244 00:17:49.680 --> 00:17:53.279 I guess that. I feel like that's what a lot of people think is 245 00:17:53.319 --> 00:17:56.319 happening, like they just think they're just going to pick anybody, and it's 246 00:17:56.759 --> 00:18:00.079 never been that way. You know, as a matter of fact, like 247 00:18:00.000 --> 00:18:03.160 if you just put in the paperwork by yourself, you're probably going to get 248 00:18:03.240 --> 00:18:07.559 denied. You know, most of the time. I'm not. I've had 249 00:18:07.640 --> 00:18:11.359 family members in the past where we've sponsored a family member to come to come 250 00:18:11.400 --> 00:18:15.519 over. You know, you gotta be you gotta like turn in paperwork, 251 00:18:15.599 --> 00:18:18.759 you got to turn in like your tax return for I don't know how long 252 00:18:18.400 --> 00:18:22.559 to verify that. Yeah, if this person comes over here and does bootle 253 00:18:22.640 --> 00:18:26.240 this mother it, you're in charge or you're responsible for them, and that's 254 00:18:26.279 --> 00:18:30.079 a different process. Franct that you're talking about, because what I was talking 255 00:18:30.119 --> 00:18:32.960 about is somebody doesn't have any ties to United States and it's kind of a 256 00:18:33.039 --> 00:18:36.599 lot of system. If you have somebody that is already living here, like 257 00:18:36.680 --> 00:18:40.279 a family member, then you would go under the same track. Right, 258 00:18:40.440 --> 00:18:42.119 that would be a faster track, but it still takes a long ass time 259 00:18:42.319 --> 00:18:47.599 and yeah, they dig in pretty heavily. You know. We I've been 260 00:18:47.680 --> 00:18:49.640 in that position to like, not myself personally, that I sponsored somebody, 261 00:18:49.920 --> 00:18:53.680 but people in my family of sponsored other people in our family. Came in 262 00:18:53.759 --> 00:18:56.839 a bag of oranges. Remember that was crazy. Yeah, I know, 263 00:18:57.039 --> 00:19:03.359 man, we get learned that three times. Oh, and I found the 264 00:19:03.440 --> 00:19:07.759 article. It's the Forbes article and it was Canada and Australia. Actually not 265 00:19:07.920 --> 00:19:12.519 in Europe. My mistake. Okay, it was Australia. WHO has that 266 00:19:12.640 --> 00:19:18.960 system? Yep, made Lord of the room. Yeah, that was New 267 00:19:18.039 --> 00:19:25.759 Zealand. I know, I'm just fucking around, but now loading right now. 268 00:19:26.680 --> 00:19:33.519 Yeah, I yeah. And then, so what I was going to 269 00:19:33.559 --> 00:19:37.000 say is so that. Yeah, I mean if you have if you have 270 00:19:37.079 --> 00:19:42.279 family member, makes it easier, but just, you know, getting getting 271 00:19:42.480 --> 00:19:47.640 to that point, it takes a long time and it's not a. it's 272 00:19:47.720 --> 00:19:49.920 not cheap either. You know it. You're right, it does require like 273 00:19:51.039 --> 00:19:56.160 a like immigration lawyer. The processes is a lot. So you know, 274 00:19:56.720 --> 00:20:00.920 if you're going to have that kind of a process and you know you need 275 00:20:00.839 --> 00:20:06.039 workers, it's not very efficient. You know, you need to find a 276 00:20:06.079 --> 00:20:10.039 more efficient way of doing that. You know, like I said, and 277 00:20:10.119 --> 00:20:15.400 it was it was done before the but I settle program so it's not like 278 00:20:15.519 --> 00:20:19.279 it can't be done again. It just needs to be done better, for 279 00:20:19.400 --> 00:20:23.799 sure. Yeah, yeah, just a way to legitimize it in and make 280 00:20:23.839 --> 00:20:27.720 sure that the right people are getting in and nobody's getting taken advantage of any 281 00:20:27.799 --> 00:20:34.519 way by form workers or by the government agencies or by people in these other 282 00:20:34.640 --> 00:20:40.680 countries that, Matt that might prey upon People's hopes and dreams of coming to 283 00:20:40.759 --> 00:20:42.359 this country. You know what I mean because I mean I only speak for 284 00:20:42.559 --> 00:20:45.599 I because I have relatives in Mexico. So I know, like do you 285 00:20:45.680 --> 00:20:48.759 come over here and you get a job at freaking Jack in the box? 286 00:20:49.240 --> 00:20:52.519 Your you hit the Jackpot, you know what I mean. You get a 287 00:20:52.599 --> 00:20:57.200 regular ass job like that, you're getting paid like, imagine what you're getting 288 00:20:57.240 --> 00:21:00.279 paid right now, and then in a gem myself. Fonso, we move 289 00:21:00.359 --> 00:21:06.000 to Madagascar, you're going to make ten times at you be like, what 290 00:21:06.160 --> 00:21:08.720 the fuck, let's go. That's literally what happens. If they're no, 291 00:21:08.920 --> 00:21:12.920 what am I doing here? And in other countries even more. Yeah, 292 00:21:14.480 --> 00:21:17.880 yeah, exactly. So a lot of times people come over here and they'll 293 00:21:18.000 --> 00:21:23.519 take any job and they'll take any wage because it's more than they've ever made 294 00:21:23.559 --> 00:21:27.680 in their whole life. You know that that brings about other problems as well, 295 00:21:27.799 --> 00:21:33.200 you know, but it's just there's it's just kind of like you fix 296 00:21:33.319 --> 00:21:37.000 one problem and then then this other problem arises. So, I mean it's 297 00:21:37.000 --> 00:21:41.119 I just feel for the people because I understand what it's like, you know, 298 00:21:41.759 --> 00:21:45.920 for for someone to come from a from a from a place where there's 299 00:21:45.000 --> 00:21:51.079 just the the there's just no hope or there's just no way of being able 300 00:21:51.200 --> 00:21:53.880 to make it somehow. You know, yeah, coming over here and just 301 00:21:55.079 --> 00:21:57.039 work and work and the American dream, you know, you come, you 302 00:21:57.200 --> 00:22:02.599 work hard and and you make something of yourself and and it could happen. 303 00:22:02.720 --> 00:22:06.880 You know, you could get a job, a forty hour a week job, 304 00:22:07.000 --> 00:22:11.079 and be able to buy a house and raise your kids and become a 305 00:22:11.160 --> 00:22:14.559 citizen. I mean that's what happens with what happened with my dad, you 306 00:22:14.680 --> 00:22:17.480 know, so right, I mean exactly. And a lot of people, 307 00:22:17.519 --> 00:22:19.960 a lot of other people have different stories, you know, in different reasons 308 00:22:21.559 --> 00:22:25.799 things for what they did, but in the end really they're just coming over 309 00:22:25.880 --> 00:22:29.799 here to work and trying to contribute to the community. You know what I 310 00:22:29.839 --> 00:22:33.960 mean in most instances. You know, there there are some stray cats out 311 00:22:34.039 --> 00:22:37.920 there and just like in any family, you know, they write, there's 312 00:22:37.000 --> 00:22:44.799 fuck ups and and sometimes those are those maybe will even get across in in 313 00:22:44.920 --> 00:22:48.039 this wedding process. But maybe if we tien the screw somehow do better. 314 00:22:49.200 --> 00:22:52.279 You know, maybe we can, like you mentioned, increase funding somehow, 315 00:22:52.440 --> 00:22:56.160 some way. I mean, yeah, we're spending money on crazy amounts of 316 00:22:56.359 --> 00:23:00.799 crazy amounts of money on crazy ass things. I mean I'm sure if we 317 00:23:00.880 --> 00:23:04.480 did some research, we could find a multitude of programs that were like, 318 00:23:04.599 --> 00:23:11.200 are you serious? You're testing what runs the viscosity of toothpaste and pasta sauce? 319 00:23:14.200 --> 00:23:15.519 Yeah, now, for Real, man like. And there's a lot 320 00:23:15.599 --> 00:23:18.400 of wasted money and government. We won't we know that. I'm sure we 321 00:23:18.480 --> 00:23:22.960 can dig up articles and maybe that'll be a topic for another fort with friends 322 00:23:22.039 --> 00:23:26.559 on the right down the road rolls. I'm trying to apply for a four 323 00:23:26.640 --> 00:23:33.240 hundred and three. See and well, at the other point, the other 324 00:23:33.319 --> 00:23:37.759 point that I wanted to make was the other thing about like, you know, 325 00:23:38.000 --> 00:23:41.880 the argument where you know they you know they took their jobs, you 326 00:23:41.960 --> 00:23:45.240 know, whatever. You know they're coming to taking our jobs. Look, 327 00:23:47.759 --> 00:23:51.759 I don't know. I mean if we look around now, man like, 328 00:23:51.880 --> 00:23:55.000 there's less immigrants now than there have been in the last two and a half 329 00:23:55.160 --> 00:23:59.440 years. Look at the job storage. Are they really taking the jobs? 330 00:24:00.000 --> 00:24:03.440 I don't think so. And again, man like, these statistics of the 331 00:24:03.599 --> 00:24:08.559 baby boomers vacating their jobs. You know, no, there's gonna be way 332 00:24:08.680 --> 00:24:12.160 more jobs out there than anybody can end and can knows what to do with. 333 00:24:12.359 --> 00:24:15.599 You know what I mean?

I mean what are some things you've 379 00:28:27.680 --> 00:28:32.680 always known about Rogan? Of them? You know what, when I first 380 00:28:32.680 --> 00:28:34.880 started listening to him, I thought it was, you know, he's entertaining 381 00:28:36.039 --> 00:28:37.720 dude, like he you know, he I like the fact that he had 382 00:28:37.839 --> 00:28:44.119 like just you know, some just weird, you know, weird conversations with 383 00:28:44.240 --> 00:28:49.039 people just, you know, like fuck man, I can't think of a 384 00:28:49.079 --> 00:28:52.920 specific person right now, but like I like that as conversation seemed like they 385 00:28:53.000 --> 00:28:57.440 were just not plan like they were just two people talking genuine conversation. Yeah, 386 00:28:57.559 --> 00:29:00.599 and they would just get into these cool little topics and then like, 387 00:29:02.079 --> 00:29:04.039 you know, he seemed to be genuinely interested in what this other person was 388 00:29:04.119 --> 00:29:08.680 talking about and of course that person was like super into their conversation because it's, 389 00:29:08.720 --> 00:29:11.680 you know, that's it's whatever they like to talk about. For for 390 00:29:11.799 --> 00:29:15.480 example, okay, I'll give you a good one, like Neil de Grass 391 00:29:15.559 --> 00:29:18.680 Tyson right, like he's one of my favorite, you know, scientists out 392 00:29:18.720 --> 00:29:22.559 there. You know, I love, you know, watching him and hearing 393 00:29:22.599 --> 00:29:26.160 him break things down right, and like he's breaking down these astro physicists, 394 00:29:26.559 --> 00:29:30.279 physics, you know, concepts and Shit, and that I thought that was 395 00:29:30.359 --> 00:29:36.559 super cool. And just two questions that Joe Joe asked, you know, 396 00:29:36.640 --> 00:29:40.440 I found, honestly, just intriguing and thought provoking, you know, because 397 00:29:40.440 --> 00:29:42.759 it'd be like questions that I would ask, you know, just conversation with 398 00:29:42.880 --> 00:29:45.720 my friends, and you know, they just seemed to be, you know, 399 00:29:45.799 --> 00:29:49.000 to have like a really good conversation and just fun and light hearted. 400 00:29:49.400 --> 00:29:53.519 And then he would also have some you know honest like conversation with people were 401 00:29:53.559 --> 00:29:57.480 like okay, you know what this is getting into, like some pretty heavy 402 00:29:57.519 --> 00:30:02.960 stuff here, but he was able to keep that that same conversational tone with 403 00:30:03.079 --> 00:30:07.160 people and you know, that's really the appeal man like just random, just 404 00:30:07.359 --> 00:30:11.480 as sortment of ECLECTIC people coming in and out of his show caught my attention. 405 00:30:14.279 --> 00:30:18.039 Yeah, well, I mean I've always known Joe Rogan from I mean 406 00:30:18.279 --> 00:30:22.039 I'm a little bit older than you. I remember he was on some s, 407 00:30:22.480 --> 00:30:26.960 some s or ninety Sitcom, or a ninety Sitcom called news radio, 408 00:30:27.720 --> 00:30:30.599 and I didn't know who he was, but I remember him being on that 409 00:30:30.720 --> 00:30:36.640 show. And then after that show he started coming out on fear factor. 410 00:30:37.400 --> 00:30:40.599 Right, I think by the time a little bit into fear factor. was 411 00:30:40.640 --> 00:30:45.000 when he started doing work with the UFC and that's when I really became a 412 00:30:45.119 --> 00:30:48.519 big fan of his. And then then I started doing Jiu Jitsu and then 413 00:30:48.599 --> 00:30:52.640 a little bit after I started doing Jiu Jitsu I started getting into podcast and 414 00:30:52.640 --> 00:30:56.319 I would just download a bunch of stuff but I would never listen to anything, 415 00:30:56.720 --> 00:31:00.319 and he was one of the few that I would download D and in. 416 00:31:00.480 --> 00:31:03.519 Finally he had a guest on that I'm like, AH, dude, 417 00:31:03.640 --> 00:31:06.000 I want to hear what they're going to talk about. I want to hear 418 00:31:06.039 --> 00:31:10.599 this. And it was boss route and it was back in February two thousand 419 00:31:10.599 --> 00:31:14.160 and eleven. It was like episode eighty three. So I wasn't like the 420 00:31:14.359 --> 00:31:17.680 first, first batch of episodes. He'd been doing it for a while already, 421 00:31:17.759 --> 00:31:22.519 kind of perfected his little formula and he had boss on and for those 422 00:31:22.519 --> 00:31:26.279 of you that don't know boss room, boss routine is like a x ufclight 423 00:31:26.319 --> 00:31:32.839 heavyweight champ from the early days. He's a pancrake as champion. He's just 424 00:31:33.039 --> 00:31:37.759 an awesome, awesome dude. He's got a Jiu Jitsu School, I want 425 00:31:37.799 --> 00:31:41.000 to say like in Beverly Hill somewhere. He used to also train MMA fighters. 426 00:31:41.960 --> 00:31:47.680 He's got an awesome scene in the documentary on Hicks and Gracie called choke, 427 00:31:48.440 --> 00:31:53.599 where he was training Rico Rodriguez for a fight against actually wasn't training Rico 428 00:31:53.720 --> 00:32:00.200 rodrigs he was training Mark Kurve for a fight and Rico Rodriguez was helping out 429 00:32:00.799 --> 00:32:05.400 and boss Routin was the coach, so he kind of organized the whole thing. 430 00:32:05.480 --> 00:32:08.480 So if you haven't seen choke, CO check it out. Awesome scene 431 00:32:08.559 --> 00:32:12.880 with boss route. Trust me, it's worth it. But yeah, he 432 00:32:12.960 --> 00:32:15.920 had boss on as a guest and Boston. You know, I mean boss 433 00:32:15.000 --> 00:32:20.319 is just awesome do he got crazy stories and, as a matter of fact, 434 00:32:20.559 --> 00:32:22.759 he boss used it was started telling stories about being a bouncer. You 435 00:32:22.880 --> 00:32:25.599 said. You know, one of the things that broken's able to do is 436 00:32:25.920 --> 00:32:30.119 he gets these people in his studio and it's almost like they forget they're being 437 00:32:30.240 --> 00:32:36.920 recorded because they're just conversating and I don't know if they were drinking or smoking 438 00:32:37.000 --> 00:32:38.839 weed. On that episode I don't recall, but a lot of times that's 439 00:32:38.839 --> 00:32:42.519 what he would do back in the day, you know. And and then 440 00:32:42.599 --> 00:32:45.759 lowers the filter for people a little bit and they start to open up and 441 00:32:45.839 --> 00:32:49.559 then next thing you know they're they're telling these cool, awesome stories and boss 442 00:32:49.640 --> 00:32:54.599 told the sickest bouncer stories. That's where I got the idea for our bouncer 443 00:32:54.680 --> 00:32:59.279 episode. I was so enthralled with them. Like Matt, someday I would 444 00:32:59.319 --> 00:33:02.400 love to do something where I talked to bouncers like that, and we were 445 00:33:02.440 --> 00:33:06.519 able to do it and and I love to do it again. You know 446 00:33:06.599 --> 00:33:09.200 I mean. But that was when I got like fish hooked into Joe Rogan. 447 00:33:09.240 --> 00:33:14.279 And almost every day, maybe not even every day, because a lot 448 00:33:14.319 --> 00:33:16.200 of times I would sift through his get, you know, I would listen 449 00:33:16.240 --> 00:33:20.279 to the I would look at the guests and I'd be like, I'm not 450 00:33:20.640 --> 00:33:22.079 into that, I'm not even listen to it, and I wouldn't listen to 451 00:33:22.160 --> 00:33:25.680 it and it would be totally fine. And then the next day or two 452 00:33:25.799 --> 00:33:29.680 days later, because you used to not pump him out every day. He 453 00:33:29.759 --> 00:33:32.400 used to pump him out like maybe once a week, maybe twice a week, 454 00:33:32.480 --> 00:33:37.119 whatever his schedule allowed him to do, he would do and just as 455 00:33:37.200 --> 00:33:40.119 time progressed and started doing them all almost every day. Is Pretty much what 456 00:33:40.240 --> 00:33:45.240 he does now if you look at it. But it was just a cool 457 00:33:45.319 --> 00:33:49.680 deal. You know, where he would have on these just like you mentioned, 458 00:33:49.799 --> 00:33:52.160 a wide variety of different guests. He would have on Comedians. Obviously, 459 00:33:52.200 --> 00:33:55.079 because he's a comedian, he was right there in La you know, 460 00:33:55.200 --> 00:34:00.200 so he had access to all these high level talents coming in. You know, 461 00:34:00.279 --> 00:34:04.359 a he would catch him at the show the night before. He would 462 00:34:04.359 --> 00:34:07.079 do a little set himself. They would do is say they would probably go 463 00:34:07.160 --> 00:34:08.920 back, have a couple of drinks today, coming on my pad, don't 464 00:34:08.960 --> 00:34:13.559 do a podcast tomorrow.

You know, Eddie Bravo, 474 00:34:57.440 --> 00:35:00.719 dude. What's not to like about Eddie Bravo? Should you take them 475 00:35:00.880 --> 00:35:04.760 for the truth? He's just an entertainer. Who Cares? He loves talking 476 00:35:04.760 --> 00:35:10.880 about crazy conspiracy stories. He's got some funny ass stories, Dude. He 477 00:35:12.079 --> 00:35:16.760 told a story early on in one of his the podcasts where I'm not even 478 00:35:16.840 --> 00:35:21.000 going to go into the details, but it involves Eddie Bravo in the middle 479 00:35:21.039 --> 00:35:28.559 school and condom that he used.

Because it's entertainment. It's just right, something that I 484 00:35:43.480 --> 00:35:46.960 would I used to listen to these like during my prep period as a matter 485 00:35:47.000 --> 00:35:51.920 of fact, dude, I don't know if you remember, but I worked 486 00:35:51.920 --> 00:35:55.679 at a middle certain, middle school in drest no, and it was known 487 00:35:55.920 --> 00:36:01.400 for giant rumbles, and one day I this into a super good podcast. 488 00:36:02.079 --> 00:36:06.639 And, mind you, one whole side of my classroom is nothing but windows 489 00:36:07.800 --> 00:36:12.239 and there was a giant rumble like right outside my class I didn't fucking know 490 00:36:12.400 --> 00:36:15.519 what was going on, Dude.

No, I don't think I did, but there was a 497 00:36:40.639 --> 00:36:44.679 handful of times where we we drive out and go to the comedy store on 498 00:36:44.760 --> 00:36:49.360 Friday night and sometimes random ass people would just show up all you know. 499 00:36:49.480 --> 00:36:52.039 You you see the lineup and you be like Ah, cool, I'm you 500 00:36:52.119 --> 00:36:54.039 know it's going to be a good show no matter what, and then Bobby 501 00:36:54.159 --> 00:37:01.360 Lee drops in or Joe Rogan drove up scene or Brian Kellen drops in and 502 00:37:01.440 --> 00:37:05.320 you get to see all these people that you you would hear on the show, 503 00:37:05.800 --> 00:37:07.599 you know firsthand. And then not only did you did, I get 504 00:37:07.679 --> 00:37:14.360 introduced to all these different guess, but dude, how many commercials does this 505 00:37:14.519 --> 00:37:19.599 fool have at the beginning, at the middle? Now he's mixed, he's 506 00:37:19.679 --> 00:37:22.599 playing us, he's mixing it all up, but how many commercials does he 507 00:37:22.719 --> 00:37:28.559 have in his podcast? How many sponsors does that guy have? I don't 508 00:37:28.599 --> 00:37:30.800 know, man, I don't think I'm to be honest, I don't think 509 00:37:30.800 --> 00:37:32.719 I've ever listened to a whole podcast. I'd like listen to like bits and 510 00:37:32.800 --> 00:37:37.039 pieces of different guests. So I don't know. I don't think I've ever 511 00:37:37.199 --> 00:37:40.440 listened to a whole show. In the day he would always start off every 512 00:37:40.480 --> 00:37:44.239 podcast. I mean he still does, see. I mean I keep it 513 00:37:44.360 --> 00:37:47.519 spotify. He starts and then a little bit later sometimes he adds kick in 514 00:37:47.679 --> 00:37:52.719 or that he'll he has like these readings that he does for his sponsors. 515 00:37:52.800 --> 00:37:57.000 But do there's been so many things that he's been like, Hey, I 516 00:37:57.239 --> 00:38:00.280 try this, you should try it too, and I would always try not 517 00:38:00.480 --> 00:38:05.320 everything that you would plug. I would try, but dude, I tried 518 00:38:06.079 --> 00:38:09.599 me Undy's, some Toni's. I tried. But your box, you know, 519 00:38:09.679 --> 00:38:13.960 it's like a like a meat delivery service. I tried nature box. 520 00:38:14.559 --> 00:38:17.760 It was like a snack of the month, like a order snack. Ideal. 521 00:38:19.199 --> 00:38:22.199 Yeah, I've seen him push on that. What's all the yeah, 522 00:38:22.280 --> 00:38:27.360 the on it, and I know the Tim Tam. Yeah, I remember 523 00:38:27.400 --> 00:38:30.920 that. Like that, with that, I've actually bought it. Why? 524 00:38:30.039 --> 00:38:32.360 No, I didn't buy I got it a gift because one of my friends 525 00:38:32.800 --> 00:38:37.920 knew that I wanted it. But it's at must fuck. It's like a 526 00:38:38.840 --> 00:38:43.239 it's a massage therapy gun, like you fucking like it, like it's like 527 00:38:43.320 --> 00:38:46.920 a Jackhammer type of motherfucker. You press a button and it just stick ass. 528 00:38:47.079 --> 00:38:52.440 Fool. Yeah, yeah, fool, you got the member he off 529 00:38:52.559 --> 00:38:57.400 do. He used to also be sponsored by fleshlight. How many of those, 530 00:38:59.599 --> 00:39:04.360 fool that I'm on my hand my fifty world became.

Click here, heed your delivery faster. No, but 535 00:39:31.320 --> 00:39:35.400 seriously, though, man, he's done a lot for all this. For 536 00:39:35.519 --> 00:39:39.559 as long as he's been on, I've found the what he's been saying very 537 00:39:39.639 --> 00:39:46.599 informative and and very maybe not even informative, but like entertaining, because sometimes 538 00:39:46.639 --> 00:39:52.639 he be talking about answers, talk about ufos, he'll talk about drugs, 539 00:39:53.079 --> 00:39:57.920 he'll talk about freaking fights. You know what I mean. Like it, 540 00:39:58.039 --> 00:40:00.360 which brings me to another point. You know I mean it. Actually, 541 00:40:00.719 --> 00:40:05.400 before we go on, I want to talk about his spotify exclusivity deal. 542 00:40:05.599 --> 00:40:08.159 He signed with spotify, as everybody knows, and he signed a mega deal 543 00:40:08.239 --> 00:40:15.559 fond. Do you remember what the numbers were originally reported at many when I 544 00:40:15.679 --> 00:40:20.280 first heard it was a remember about you remember the number that he was going 545 00:40:20.320 --> 00:40:25.280 to get paid? Was it like ten million, a hundred million? It 546 00:40:25.480 --> 00:40:30.639 was in the low hundreds, like hundred and ten hundred and twenty mill for 547 00:40:30.039 --> 00:40:34.920 x amount of years. Right, well, right, a couple weeks ago 548 00:40:35.079 --> 00:40:37.360 people started reporting and this was the in the New York Post, this was 549 00:40:37.519 --> 00:40:42.559 in or Washington Post, this was in the New York Times, this was 550 00:40:42.840 --> 00:40:50.000 in readers, this was in Forbes his deal is actually worth more than two 551 00:40:50.239 --> 00:40:57.719 hundred million dollars, and I don't know if that was the original number, 552 00:40:58.320 --> 00:41:04.000 or is it that the number that he got because of incentence and now it's 553 00:41:04.400 --> 00:41:07.119 blown up into this number. You know, I mean kind of like the 554 00:41:07.159 --> 00:41:10.280 way athletes, like a quarterback, of if you throw twenty touchdowns, you'll 555 00:41:10.320 --> 00:41:14.679 get a million dollars, and every touchdown after that it's like two hundred and 556 00:41:14.760 --> 00:41:17.760 fifty k Moor or whatever. You know, it's a monetary incentive that they 557 00:41:17.840 --> 00:41:24.280 have based on hitting certain numbers, and this was never spoken about and all 558 00:41:24.280 --> 00:41:30.119 of a sudden, you know, Brogan has been in the news because he's 559 00:41:30.159 --> 00:41:36.400 had some some guests on who've been maybe, depending on what side you're on, 560 00:41:37.440 --> 00:41:40.320 giving some bad information, but he just keeps been pumping your like, 561 00:41:40.960 --> 00:41:46.079 dude, why does he keep putting these people on? But they get millions 562 00:41:46.199 --> 00:41:52.119 of downloads, like those are the ones that get even more than his regular 563 00:41:52.239 --> 00:41:58.000 episodes, sometimes even and he if you look at his guest list from the 564 00:41:58.119 --> 00:42:04.800 last eighteen months, it's changed dramatically since he signed this deal. I mean 565 00:42:05.320 --> 00:42:09.800 we're in February now of twenty two. He signed the deal to go exclusive 566 00:42:10.159 --> 00:42:15.880 and September. So what's that like? Almost two years of Info there. 567 00:42:16.119 --> 00:42:21.599 Well, this year will be too full years. So we're like at fourteen, 568 00:42:21.760 --> 00:42:27.519 fifteen months, somewhere around there. But before he signed this exclusive suit, 569 00:42:27.639 --> 00:42:34.039 exclusive deal with spotify, one of the episodes that I would always look 570 00:42:34.239 --> 00:42:37.599 forward to listening to would be his fight companions. You have. Did you 571 00:42:37.679 --> 00:42:39.519 ever listen to any of those, Fonso, no, I don't think I 572 00:42:39.639 --> 00:42:43.679 did. Man, all right, I don't. I'm not sure if you 573 00:42:43.719 --> 00:42:46.719 guys out there listening ever ever listen to these five Joe Rogans old fight companions. 574 00:42:46.760 --> 00:42:52.039 But basically, imagine, like if we were going to podcast live and 575 00:42:52.119 --> 00:42:54.199 we got to do this. All right, we're gonna do this. We're 576 00:42:54.199 --> 00:42:58.079 going to do our own fight. I am be it for WHO's number one 577 00:42:58.639 --> 00:43:01.800 or a DCC or a UFC or a fight night or a pay you whatever, 578 00:43:02.079 --> 00:43:05.719 we're going to do it. But basically what he would do is he'll 579 00:43:05.760 --> 00:43:09.639 be like, basically, imagine if I go Fondo Saturday night, my pad, 580 00:43:10.079 --> 00:43:15.880 we're going to record, bring some meat, cousin at we're recording at 581 00:43:15.039 --> 00:43:22.800 seven. Bring some drinks, Eddie, we're seven o'clock, bringing some weed 582 00:43:22.320 --> 00:43:25.960 or you don't even whatever, but everybody it would just be like a pot 583 00:43:27.039 --> 00:43:30.079 look and then you would not all right, you know, everyone knows with 584 00:43:30.159 --> 00:43:32.599 time to fight start, when the fight start. Were recording and we're going, 585 00:43:32.920 --> 00:43:37.039 all right, tell a fights are starting right now. Tell everybody countdown 586 00:43:37.079 --> 00:43:38.920 and first round and starting in five hundred and forty three, in case you 587 00:43:38.960 --> 00:43:44.119 want to scenk up with us. Boom. So it's live at the moment 588 00:43:44.280 --> 00:43:49.920 for the fights and they're just really they're supposed to be commenting, commentating on 589 00:43:50.000 --> 00:43:52.679 the fights that Joe wouldn't be working on. You know what I mean? 590 00:43:52.159 --> 00:43:55.320 You know like, Oh, you look at this, I heard that he's 591 00:43:55.360 --> 00:43:59.440 been working on this, and you know just kind of the things that that 592 00:43:59.519 --> 00:44:02.400 you wouldn't be able to he wouldn't be able to share on a pay per 593 00:44:02.480 --> 00:44:06.079 view or on the show. You get it. You get that a little 594 00:44:06.079 --> 00:44:09.239 bit of inside because Sometimes Brien shop would be there. Sometimes it might be 595 00:44:09.480 --> 00:44:15.519 like an actual you see fighter or a retired fire you know, or an 596 00:44:15.760 --> 00:44:19.400 or a coach. So it would be super cool. But you know, 597 00:44:19.599 --> 00:44:22.280 as the show would go on, they'd be having drinks or they would smoke 598 00:44:22.400 --> 00:44:25.320 and they would get a little off track, sidetrack, but they would tell 599 00:44:25.440 --> 00:44:30.079 goodass stories, you know, and that's really when I really wanted to get 600 00:44:30.159 --> 00:44:35.480 into podcasting, was after listening to those episodes. But since he switched over 601 00:44:35.599 --> 00:44:39.559 to spotify he hasn't done any and as a matter of fact, he's done 602 00:44:40.280 --> 00:44:45.760 twenty one mma show since then. I don't have the numbers on how many 603 00:44:45.840 --> 00:44:49.599 he did before, but it was like almost once a month before that and 604 00:44:49.719 --> 00:44:52.159 he'd been on since two thousand and nine, I want to say two thousand 605 00:44:52.159 --> 00:44:59.000 and ten right. I went back and I looked at I went back to 606 00:44:59.159 --> 00:45:07.000 like late fall of last year and he's had one MMA show in July. 607 00:45:07.239 --> 00:45:12.440 In January with Julie Ampania, he's had to. He had to in December. 608 00:45:13.360 --> 00:45:17.719 Before that he had one in October and then before that he had two 609 00:45:17.960 --> 00:45:22.440 in August and then I didn't go any further than that. And then again 610 00:45:22.960 --> 00:45:28.239 no fight companions. The last fight companion was July eleven of two thousand and 611 00:45:28.280 --> 00:45:31.440 twenty. So, Oh, I don't know if he's also you know, 612 00:45:31.559 --> 00:45:35.920 when he started the spotify deal, that's when he moved to out moved to 613 00:45:36.039 --> 00:45:38.760 Texas, and one of the things that he was able to do when he 614 00:45:38.920 --> 00:45:43.280 was in la was that's where all his homies were. So it's homies would 615 00:45:43.280 --> 00:45:46.519 just drop in sometimes. So right, I don't know if it's that he 616 00:45:46.639 --> 00:45:52.360 doesn't have the same kind of friends in Texas. He's got that spotify money 617 00:45:52.400 --> 00:45:57.480 full flying man on a jet. Yeah, exactly. Yeah, do these 618 00:45:57.559 --> 00:46:00.480 five companions and they're funny, man, you know they're they're so good. 619 00:46:00.519 --> 00:46:04.360 I mean how many times that be? Will you watch the fight with your 620 00:46:04.400 --> 00:46:07.360 friends and your barbe queen and you're having drinks and you're watching the fights and 621 00:46:07.559 --> 00:46:15.679 someone's dad tells a crazy ass story about Vietnah or someone's crazy ass work story. 622 00:46:15.800 --> 00:46:19.360 You know, I mean it's just good, good stuff. You know. 623 00:46:19.960 --> 00:46:24.519 So so you think? You think that that spotify is affecting like all 624 00:46:24.559 --> 00:46:29.719 that stuff that he's not doing anymore. Like is it like them pushing like 625 00:46:30.000 --> 00:46:31.079 a man? You got to get more ratings, so this was getting you 626 00:46:31.159 --> 00:46:35.960 more rating. So like do more of this less of that. I definitely 627 00:46:36.239 --> 00:46:40.800 think that. I definitely think that, and then even more so when he 628 00:46:42.000 --> 00:46:44.960 came out and gave that message like Hey, I'm not doing anything, I'm 629 00:46:45.000 --> 00:46:49.639 just getting both sides, and which he does. But I key, sometimes 630 00:46:49.719 --> 00:46:52.719 he seems to sprinkle the other side and he agrees with the other side, 631 00:46:52.880 --> 00:46:57.280 which is totally fine. I don't give a shit. That's totally fine, 632 00:46:57.320 --> 00:47:00.119 and if you want to agree with him, you can as well, you 633 00:47:00.199 --> 00:47:04.239 know. And as a matter of fact, I remember somebody that I follow 634 00:47:04.360 --> 00:47:07.000 on Insta posted something about him when when he was catching a lot of heat, 635 00:47:07.079 --> 00:47:10.920 and I was like Bro, I commented on it and I shouldn't have, 636 00:47:12.119 --> 00:47:15.320 but I did, and I said something like bro He's a comedian, 637 00:47:16.000 --> 00:47:22.760 UFC commentator. Why the fuck do I care? Or why the fuck would 638 00:47:22.760 --> 00:47:28.159 I ask him about health advice? I'm ask him about a joke, or 639 00:47:28.159 --> 00:47:31.199 I would ask him about a fighter, because he would have better knowledge about 640 00:47:31.239 --> 00:47:36.079 that than I would, you know. But I'm you might as well ask 641 00:47:36.159 --> 00:47:42.400 him about how to fix a rocket or about the solar system or about the 642 00:47:42.480 --> 00:47:46.519 Big Bang theory, because he's gonna know nothing about that as well. Right, 643 00:47:49.679 --> 00:47:52.400 yeah, and then somebody came back at somebody actually responded and came back 644 00:47:52.480 --> 00:47:55.920 at me and they're like, oh, so, do you think you should 645 00:47:55.960 --> 00:48:02.079 just be listening to your doctor or big Farma or whoever you want? And 646 00:48:02.199 --> 00:48:07.639 I go yeah, you should let into whoever you want, regardless of who 647 00:48:08.159 --> 00:48:13.480 you know and but that's what I that's what I'm saying, Dude. And 648 00:48:14.360 --> 00:48:19.000 the more people have turned on him, the more people are listening and he's 649 00:48:19.079 --> 00:48:22.840 reaping the benefits like this. Two hundred meal didn't just come out of nowhere. 650 00:48:22.320 --> 00:48:24.960 You know it's been there. I'm sure it's been a goal that he's 651 00:48:24.960 --> 00:48:30.719 been working on. I'm sure spotify was like a bull. You're getting crazy 652 00:48:30.760 --> 00:48:34.639 ass numbers. Keep this up, because this was in their plan. This 653 00:48:34.880 --> 00:48:37.079 was, if you go back and read about like the early business plan of 654 00:48:37.159 --> 00:48:42.679 spotify. Since Day one they've been wanting to become number one in the podcast 655 00:48:42.760 --> 00:48:45.679 industry. They've been trying to take down apple and they finally did it. 656 00:48:45.760 --> 00:48:51.960 In December they were number one in podcasting. The of all the podcast platforms 657 00:48:52.000 --> 00:48:54.559 out there, they were had they had the most listens, the most download 658 00:48:55.119 --> 00:49:01.360 that's no accident. There's no accident in there that Brogan had a big part 659 00:49:01.440 --> 00:49:05.880 of that. That's why they're paying him the big bucks. The money's paying 660 00:49:05.920 --> 00:49:07.239 off. I'll, I'll you know, the saying you get what you pay 661 00:49:07.320 --> 00:49:10.000 for is shit. A hundred million dollars, think about what you're going to 662 00:49:10.079 --> 00:49:19.840 get it right, right, and and I just like I'm kind of sad 663 00:49:19.920 --> 00:49:22.360 about it, you know. I'm like, I would do the same, 664 00:49:22.639 --> 00:49:27.960 you know I would. I would be like, hey, fucking grape juice 665 00:49:28.199 --> 00:49:30.320 is the best. I hate grape juice, but I'll tell you it's the 666 00:49:30.400 --> 00:49:37.159 best. If they're going to pay me, you know, maybe grape juice. 667 00:49:37.199 --> 00:49:38.400 But I don't know if I would sell like poop water or anything like 668 00:49:38.480 --> 00:49:43.400 that. I want hurt people, but if I can make some money and 669 00:49:43.840 --> 00:49:47.039 do something that is just going to sell a little bit of myself, I'll 670 00:49:47.079 --> 00:49:52.800 do it. I'm fine with that. You won't be mad when you got 671 00:49:52.880 --> 00:49:55.599 that new studio of fund zone. I don't know, man, I don't 672 00:49:55.639 --> 00:50:00.920 know. We'll see, I guess. I guess I won't know until I'm 673 00:50:00.960 --> 00:50:05.840 percented with that decision. Right now, I'm well know, tell the Mexican 674 00:50:05.960 --> 00:50:10.800 construction workers are shown up at your house lasting something. I'm on a Yalla 675 00:50:12.079 --> 00:50:19.519 and laying concrete to install my new pool. All right, done, all 676 00:50:19.559 --> 00:50:23.119 right, a podcasts from the pool. Okay, yeah, I don't know, 677 00:50:23.280 --> 00:50:28.199 man. I Guess I'll cross that bridge. Is Bad, because what's 678 00:50:28.239 --> 00:50:30.000 that? I said? I'll cross that bridge when I get there. I 679 00:50:30.079 --> 00:50:35.039 guess once that once that offers made, then I'll figure out if I can 680 00:50:35.119 --> 00:50:38.079 sell my soul or not. Once the concrete drives, there's no going back. 681 00:50:39.000 --> 00:50:46.159 Okay, but I just thinking, you know, that I missed the 682 00:50:46.239 --> 00:50:52.320 old Joe Rogan. The old Joe Rogan would have on like a fucking scientist 683 00:50:52.519 --> 00:50:57.119 that is working on crazy backteria. I don't know. He would just have 684 00:50:57.760 --> 00:51:01.719 the weirdest guess on at the randomnest times, you know, sometimes fighters, 685 00:51:01.880 --> 00:51:07.719 sometimes doctors, sometimes whatever. And now it just kind of seems like it's 686 00:51:07.800 --> 00:51:12.960 the same recurring theme over and over and the a lot of the same a 687 00:51:13.039 --> 00:51:15.440 lot of the people that he used to have on he doesn't have on as 688 00:51:15.519 --> 00:51:22.039 often and again. That could be because the location change, but it's it's 689 00:51:22.679 --> 00:51:27.840 kind of sus to me, you know. Yeah, I mean it's normal, 690 00:51:27.920 --> 00:51:30.000 man, whenever you're getting paid like that. I mean because it's no 691 00:51:30.079 --> 00:51:34.719 longer his podcast, you know. I mean it's not just him to control, 692 00:51:34.880 --> 00:51:37.760 like he's Zac go. It's not got a bottle Brogan on modify. 693 00:51:38.639 --> 00:51:40.840 Yeah, yeah, he's got a boss now. Yeah, I mean like 694 00:51:42.039 --> 00:51:46.079 he he didn't before, now he does. So you know, it is 695 00:51:46.159 --> 00:51:52.239 what it is and you know, like he's got to take it. I 696 00:51:52.360 --> 00:51:54.920 mean he's got two hundred million dollars. He can't be that mad. Belongs 697 00:51:54.960 --> 00:52:04.960 to the streets. That's street is called spotify. So yeah, that's too 698 00:52:05.039 --> 00:52:10.039 bad, man. So maybe someone he can fill that void. But yeah, 699 00:52:10.119 --> 00:52:12.960 it's too bad, but it is what it is, you know what 700 00:52:13.000 --> 00:52:16.800 I mean? Congratulations to him for getting that two hundred mill him and his 701 00:52:16.880 --> 00:52:22.039 family set for life. He's still putting out awesome podcasts. You know, 702 00:52:22.519 --> 00:52:24.400 I'll live. I'll give a listen to his episodes every now and then. 703 00:52:24.960 --> 00:52:30.079 I haven't heard a full episode. I want to say maybe I've listened to, 704 00:52:30.239 --> 00:52:35.360 like to complete episodes of his since he switched over to spotify. I 705 00:52:35.519 --> 00:52:37.519 can't think of the second episode. I'm like, Oh, actually know, 706 00:52:37.679 --> 00:52:42.920 I am. Like two episodes that I listened to all the way were one 707 00:52:42.960 --> 00:52:45.880 of his MMA shows from this last December with Cheeto vetta on. You guys 708 00:52:45.920 --> 00:52:49.960 know who cheat the better, the UFC fighter, dude. That's a really 709 00:52:50.079 --> 00:52:55.320 cool podcast. Listen to that one cool backstory. That's like if I, 710 00:52:55.480 --> 00:52:58.400 if you were, if I were, you were to ask me like, 711 00:52:58.519 --> 00:53:01.440 Hey, what's a good what's a part Joe Rogan episode that I actually listen 712 00:53:01.559 --> 00:53:06.039 to? That I'll get a good feel for what his episodes are like. 713 00:53:06.320 --> 00:53:09.800 That would be one that's a classic Joe Rogan episode where you're going to get 714 00:53:09.880 --> 00:53:14.280 stories you're not going to hear anywhere else. You're going to hear I mean 715 00:53:14.360 --> 00:53:16.800 you'll get heat do he even gets into his tattoos, you know, like 716 00:53:17.280 --> 00:53:22.079 personal stories like that. He talked about his first day in the gym. 717 00:53:22.639 --> 00:53:28.400 He talks about his first five craziness, craziness. And then the other episode 718 00:53:28.480 --> 00:53:31.119 that I would highly, highly recommend you go listen to, and I don't 719 00:53:31.239 --> 00:53:37.000 know the number and they I want to say it was like from from January 720 00:53:37.320 --> 00:53:40.559 of last year or February of two thousand and twenty one, and it was 721 00:53:40.679 --> 00:53:46.239 when he had Francis and Gonu on. Do anybody out there listen to that 722 00:53:46.360 --> 00:53:52.840 episode? That's a fucking movie Bro that move. That Guy Story, amazing, 723 00:53:53.480 --> 00:53:58.400 AH, amazing. Gold listen to that story, to that episode. 724 00:53:58.480 --> 00:54:00.800 It's like a little it's it's a long one, like two plus hours, 725 00:54:01.400 --> 00:54:07.920 but it's just cliff having cliffhanger after cliffhanger. You know, it's a roller 726 00:54:07.960 --> 00:54:12.360 coaster ride, but it's a well worth episode to listen to him. You'll 727 00:54:12.360 --> 00:54:15.840 get a better understanding for who Francis is as a person and kind of like, 728 00:54:15.920 --> 00:54:21.079 Oh shit, he is like God. After hearing all the stuff he's 729 00:54:21.119 --> 00:54:24.119 gone through, I can see why he is the way he is. Right, 730 00:54:24.639 --> 00:54:29.360 right, but awesome episodes. I don't listen to all of them all 731 00:54:29.400 --> 00:54:32.920 the time, but hey, yeah, but last the last thing I heard 732 00:54:32.960 --> 00:54:37.000 from your Joe Roukin was a compilation of him saying the n word over and 733 00:54:37.079 --> 00:54:40.400 over again. I think that was it. Yeah, that was terrible. 734 00:54:40.519 --> 00:54:45.599 I know, I never, I've never heard him say that, but that, 735 00:54:45.199 --> 00:54:49.000 I mean, obviously he has, but not. See, that's the 736 00:54:49.119 --> 00:54:53.199 thing about choosing topics, that choosing episodes to listen to, you know. 737 00:54:53.239 --> 00:54:58.559 I mean there's some episodes where I'm like, that's like a topic that I 738 00:54:58.679 --> 00:55:01.519 don't really want to know about. On top of that, that person is 739 00:55:01.599 --> 00:55:07.079 someone that is super controversial and maybe I don't even like that person. So 740 00:55:07.480 --> 00:55:10.480 if he's can't he can have them on. I can still like him, 741 00:55:10.519 --> 00:55:14.599 I can still like listening to him, but that episode I'm not going to 742 00:55:14.639 --> 00:55:16.960 listen to. And I'm not saying that he got baited into saying the things 743 00:55:17.000 --> 00:55:21.440 that he said. He's got free will, he's got his own mind. 744 00:55:22.039 --> 00:55:25.440 He said what he said. Hey, that's too bad. You know, 745 00:55:27.280 --> 00:55:31.840 in the end, just, I mean will you? You have a choice, 746 00:55:32.320 --> 00:55:35.960 just like he had a choice to say what he says. We should 747 00:55:36.000 --> 00:55:38.920 have a choice into listening to what we want to listen to, you know. 748 00:55:39.119 --> 00:55:45.320 And but again, we should also have we should also be smart enough 749 00:55:45.400 --> 00:55:49.000 to understand that, hey, he's not an expert and maybe the people that 750 00:55:49.079 --> 00:55:54.519 he's having on are are or were considered experts at a certain time, and 751 00:55:54.719 --> 00:55:59.800 maybe they're not. But you gotta you gotta be a doll about that and 752 00:55:59.960 --> 00:56:02.719 realize that yourself and you can't just be like, oh, he said he's 753 00:56:02.760 --> 00:56:06.559 a doctor and I'm going to listen to what he says. Fool, you 754 00:56:06.679 --> 00:56:09.360 don't know that. Fulls background. Would you go to get a root canal 755 00:56:09.840 --> 00:56:15.239 from any doctor in the phone book? Hell No. Would you just drive 756 00:56:15.320 --> 00:56:21.719 around town until you saw a freaking what's the Colon Oscar?

But we got 765 00:56:54.239 --> 00:57:00.440 to do better than just doing simple google searches. Yeah, sometimes that's not 766 00:57:00.599 --> 00:57:07.199 the best. Use Google. Most the time that's not the best. Yeah, 767 00:57:07.239 --> 00:57:10.039 it was dollar.
