Keith:

This is undebatable A hysterical and thought provoking podcast that sees for friends from different backgrounds debate hot button issues that affect our modern world hot button issues. For quick witted hosts, if it's political news, pop culture news or weird news. We're talking about it. This is undebatable. And here are your hosts Raylene Yo, Curtis, D, and Bradford. Hey.

Steve:

Welcome, welcome. Welcome is the undebatable podcast episode 10. We have just survived Christmas. I see everybody's fatter and didn't kill anyone in their family.

Unknown:

How was that was

Steve:

your guys holiday? Was it everything you expected? We had Sandy here the week before, so we had like, I slipped him 100. So he definitely

Bradford :

It was interesting, my mother in law's here from Mexico. And so we ended up having a traditional Mexican Christmas dinner, which they actually do the 24th and I found out a lot of countries actually celebrate on the 24th not the 25th the US is one of the few countries that actually does

Steve:

is it like the evening into the day or is it just like the whole like, it's like Christmas Day, but they do it on the 24th.

Bradford :

So they do it on the 24th usually around, you know, seven or eight o'clock at night and they just have good food and they drink and they you know really celebrate all into the night and then once midnight comes it's like okay, this is like officially Christmas, but I think that they just stay up so late partying the night before that for them. Christmas morning

Steve:

isn't really a big deal. Is your mother in law still in town right

Unknown:

now? She is.

Steve:

Do you wish she wasn't?

Unknown:

I love her. I think she's

Steve:

the opposite.

Bradford :

Yeah, I probably admit it. No, she's she's, she owns a restaurant. She's an amazing cook. So we've been having really good food and I primarily cook in the family. So I've gotten a little bit of a reprieve from you know,

Steve:

I come home Mexican food. Yeah,

Curtis:

I was gonna say your your cooking versus her cooking is probably different.

Steve:

Yeah. What about you? Curtis? Did you get a bunch of seafood? I

Curtis:

assume. So I had a pretty bland Christmas actually, really? I didn't do much of anything. I had some wine.

Unknown:

Are you alone? That's it. I

Curtis:

was alone. That's I know it was the worst. So in my I know I'm going that makes me sad. I feel like I'm in a two year divorce right now. Yeah, that's taken two years too long. So this is the first year officially actually alone alone was a nice change, though.

Steve:

Like sometimes it's nice to sit in your sweatpants all day. Nothing's worse than 2020. So

Unknown:

I was chilling. I was like,

Steve:

Raylene I saw on your Facebook or Instagram. A gigantic vacuum that you got, right?

Raylene:

That was part of the TIC Tock challenge is to wrap something like something else like so it looked like a vacuum and then the family kept joking. Oh, look, Sarah got you a vacuum. And I was like, man, I hope it's one of those Bissell cross waves because those are like, right now. Right. But I you know, like when I saw it, I was like, Okay, cool. And then I unwrapped the whole thing. And it was mostly egg cartons and shoe boxes, and then a roommate. So it's one of those things that keeps your cans drinks cold.

Steve:

So compared to because the picture I saw it was like four feet tall. It looked exactly like it was what a shoe box size.

Raylene:

No, the actual gift was like eight inches. And it was it was round. It was it was the small two instead of keishon. Yeah, wow. They took two and it was it was really well done. But we have fun. Like what one year I got my husband like a leather sitting chair. You know, like one of those proper chair chairs for your right den. And I wrapped it like a chair like you could tell exactly.

Steve:

One here I buy the girl I was dating was obsessed with giraffes. And we went out to like my goals or home goods or something. And there was just like four foot dress that she went, oh my god and I remember going fucking Christmas. Next day, I bought that thing and I'm like, Well, how am I gonna wrap this? You know what I mean? It's just a stupid dress. So I'm like, that'll be funny. She'll come home and see it. So I wrapped the whole thing up and wrapping paper and she comes home she goes Oh, he got me the draft so it's not a draft. What else gonna be so it's a Brontosaurus. What else could have What else could

Curtis:

I hate wrapping wrapping is not my thing.

Steve:

And Did everybody get drunk?

Raylene:

No a few times. I only threw up twice.

Steve:

What is your What is your Christmas quota?

Raylene:

There isn't one where my kids are home. It's like I need to drink until I can't hear them anymore.

Curtis:

Last year I woke up drunk. I was usually every year we go to the casino so this is also was a different year the family all gets together we get a bunch of sweets and everyone's at the casino. There's Christmas dinner, swimming the whole nine yards. So it just was different but no, I wasn't that drunk because it wasn't as fun Not going drunk swimming and morning

Steve:

drunk swimming trunk and the more in the morning story, right? It was

Raylene:

just my demands. There's only one of them was drinking too much. The other one was some questionable seafood.

Curtis:

We all know I love seafood. Did everyone get what they asked Santa for?

Steve:

Um, yeah, yeah, I guess I don't really ask for anything anymore. Okay, I I prayed and lie that like someone's gonna give me a PlayStation five like no one was gonna get me Well,

Unknown:

what's your girlfriend get?

Steve:

No one did you got me sick? Watch her here. Nice.

Raylene:

What do you get her?

Steve:

I got her a T shirt. No kidding. I got her an apple, an iPad that she needs for she has a really cheap one. Like she bought the knockoff. And every time you try to write something, it writes half the stuff you try to write you have to go back. So just watching her try to do that is frustrating. So I'm like, Here, let me buy

Raylene:

you got yourself a gift.

Steve:

A lot of the things I remember like the poetry book. I did. I did.

Raylene:

The whole family got Apple watches. That's right.

Unknown:

You know you did good. Yes.

Raylene:

Apple Watches Apple watches for the whole fam. No,

Steve:

one. The one thing we didn't do this weekend is one of our one of our topics for the show is we didn't break up. So like, it's that time of year where you kind of break up with someone. What do you do? Do you do it first or you do it after the holidays? Also, a billionaire donated all of his wealth. We're talking like $8 billion. And we're done with Christmas. So we're on to New Year's. And I want to know, do you guys make resolutions because I despise the whole practice.

Raylene:

I make resolutions and immediately fail. So I always start the year off on a down. What

Steve:

are the resolutions to give an example losing

Raylene:

weight getting my blood sugar back under control? You know, not getting so mad at people that are stupid, like by New Year's Day, most of them are done. Wow.

Bradford :

I need to lose weight. I know that it's a shot. But I do know real for real. I cannot fit my coastguard uniform anymore. The belly here. It's a problem

Raylene:

by a bigger uniform. They're expensive.

Bradford :

And I can't bring it out anymore. Like the the seamstress was like Yeah, you're done next time, we need to say you're getting a new one.

Steve:

Your resolution this year has to fit into your coastguard uniform.

Bradford :

Yeah. And I don't need to lose a significant amount of weight. But I think you know, I could be a little bit more active. I think, you know, I'm blaming it on COVID Honestly,

Curtis:

I'm going to snap a picture so everyone could be offended.

Steve:

Right? Like lose weight you Curtis do you do you don't see like the resolution kind of person to me. No, I'm

Curtis:

not. That's that and it annoys me to actually see that I usually delete my facebook at certain times a year tax time.

Raylene:

election time.

Steve:

Every year is to just not have a resolution.

Raylene:

Right? That's a resolution.

Steve:

Yeah, it is. I don't know why. It's like I meant to look up like the history of like, when did it become like a social right? What's your resolution on Have you?

Unknown:

Why not because we

Steve:

don't none of us want to do this shit. And it's gonna be over in five minutes. Just like Raylene trying to be nice and stupid, right?

Raylene:

I want to like I want to meditate five minutes a day that one usually lasts like three weeks do yoga. I always like just try to make myself better and by February or February I realize like I am just the asshole I am get over it.

Curtis:

I set goals like I'm a big goalkeeper like I love setting goals and accomplishing goals but New Year's resolution just to do it for the New Year's like I just it's silly.

Steve:

I get the point like hey, the year shifting This is the time to choose. Don't get the point. But it just why do you want no no, you don't want to do this shit. Anyways,

Bradford :

what's the longest timeframe? You think people actually commit to it? I mean, three weeks, three weeks, like your average. Like, have you ever met someone who's like, it's June? I'm six months in and I'm still doing and you're like, wow, like I've never

Unknown:

I don't think I've ever encountered.

Steve:

Kathy, do you think that's why we picked such such like optimistic things? Like you said, I want to meditate five minutes. Wow, that's great. You couldn't do that for yourself. And then it doesn't Well, how could you really meditate five minutes a day?

Raylene:

Who's got five minutes? Wait, I meditate

Bradford :

well and also five minutes is really short time that really is you've got to meditate for like a half hour to get some benefits.

Raylene:

I don't think so. But I for the because I have ADHD meditating for any amount of time is very hard for me. And I remember when I started out just doing a minute an hour to be like, Am I done yet? Am I done yet? Am I done yet? And like the other day I did five minutes and when the timer went off, I was like, Jesus Christ give me a heart attack. You know, like I can get into it now but it takes some time to train yourself to get inside yourself.

Curtis:

The first five minutes is me arguing with myself. Shut up.

Raylene:

say Well, that's a different kind of meditate.

Bradford :

My friend Dylan and I are both meditation instructors.

Steve:

Really? Yeah. How do you become one?

Bradford :

You take a course and you get certified just like

Raylene:

my take the course. Well, there's guided meditators guide

Bradford :

Yeah, no, you learn all the different types of meditations, walking meditations, eating medicine. Do you

Steve:

ever Yeah, do you ever have like a really evil thought to be like, and then you're walking through the forest and then around you ever do you ever have that like urge? I

Bradford :

would, I would know. But I had this like massive woman who was sitting on my meditation cushions and I saw my first thought was, those are gonna be squished forever. Because they're filtered that buckwheat seed. So like she just grinded those all down to

Unknown:

buckwheat flour.

Bradford :

And then like, my second thing was like, I was telling her to concentrate on the breath, and she was breathing so heavy that she sounded like a frickin bear.

Raylene:

So everybody else could concentrate on her breath, too.

Bradford :

Right? Yeah. And I was like, this is really awkward. I kind of want just like, push her over and watch a roll.

Steve:

I haven't found that chakra video on YouTube for meditation. Here's the fat woman breathing on the beanbag,

Unknown:

right? Yeah, no.

Raylene:

One thing. One thing I do to to help focus is especially I'm more likely to meditate when I'm super upset about something and I cannot get myself to stop being upset. I will do the focus breathing thing. And what I do is I inhale through my nose like the light pink, like cotton candy air. And I breathe out Mr. Yuk green to breathe out the. So I can visualize. Like, you know what you talk about? Because they do the air out.

Curtis:

I get the idea of you know, adding some type of visual representation or feeling right about breath in and breath out. But no, not cotton candy pink air.

Bradford :

I know. We're like whales like,

Raylene:

makes me know what pink makes me obviously pink makes me happy. So I breathe in pink. And then I read out Mr. Green. Mr. Green.

Curtis:

No, he doesn't meditate cuz he didn't take Bradford Oh,

Raylene:

hold on. I feel like a bowl. When I get home. I realized Wait, wait, do you guys know what Mr. Yuk is? Yeah, of course. Okay. No, I

Steve:

mean, no idea.

Raylene:

Well, that was yuck. You know, there used to be a commercial like the Mr. poison. The poison control center had a Mr. Yuk sticker that it would stick on things to let kids know right that those things were dangerous. And it was called Mr. yock. And he was kind of like a vomit color green.

Curtis:

I just fixed green dirty.

Raylene:

This what happens because I'm 30 years old and then all of you

Bradford :

were way off topic here. But Raylene one last thought for you to meditate. Since you're got that add going on what you need is something tactile so you could stand in your shower. And instead of concentrating on your breath, you can concentrate on the feeling of the water droplets hitting your skin and how they roll down your skin and what they feel like in the temperature and if you concentrate on that. It's very relaxing. And it will help you focus because it's something tactile now

Raylene:

I cannot believe you did not go for the easy and tell me to send out a vibrator. No, no, I

Bradford :

wouldn't recommend that for beginners and I mean the shower because it's I mean no I recommend that for beginners is what I meant to say not for advanced meditation,

Curtis:

okay, because dance vibrators oh

Raylene:

no yes, definitely use those in the shower.

Bradford :

No, I did that in the shower. And as an advanced meditator I already can get into a relaxed state very easy so I almost fell asleep in the sample shower curtain what he did in the shower did

Keith:

you use the

Raylene:

membrane and I use the vibrator and also almost took out the whole shower.

Steve:

I was confused for shampoo. I don't know. My head by the way is what I meant. ship or

Bradford :

I'm married. I don't need a vibrator. Wow.

Raylene:

Oh that is such a misnomer.

Curtis:

If you were to make up a new year's resolution to fit in because all of our social media peers will be doing that. What would your New Year's resolution you want? You

Steve:

want a nice sappy bullshit answers you be nicer to people. Oh, I'm not gonna do it. You said so I can like live right? That's what I would say at least try

Raylene:

for me sometimes just stupid things like I'm gonna try to dress up a little bit more. Because you know, the other day I put on eyeliner and some moisturizer on my face. And my friends like, Hey, you look great today. And I was like the standards are so low. so low.

Bradford :

definitely lose that weight. lose that Coast Guard. We

Steve:

have a real one. Yeah. Okay. Well, if you're listening and you want to let us know what your New Year's resolution is, you can put it right into the note section right on undebatable.

Raylene:

And we'll mark it.

Steve:

James Bond. I could never say that word that I was all ready to do it right to James Bond of philanthropy. Yeah. And therapists I'm like Bravo right now.

Unknown:

Well, his name

Steve:

is Chuck Feeney, and he is a billionaire and he made a life goal to donate all of his billions before he was dead, and he has donated over $8 billion. Right now. He is living in a dorm like apartment in San Francisco. All his pictures are black and white printed from a printer. Not even in a frame. Guys with a billion dollars. He has saved 2 million for him and his wife for retirement. And that's it. He's given it all away. everything he's done is completely unanimous. Like he goes out of his way to make sure no one knows unanimous like everybody's doing it or you know Unit anonymous raeleen two words on this segment he's actually motivated Bill Gates and Warren

Curtis:

born born born. That was his stepson William

Steve:

fucking rich guys, Buffett. Join in now and give away half their millions.

Raylene:

I'm just wondering how long will 2 million last him in San Francisco

Curtis:

I'm gonna drink my wine cuz this is rich people problems.

Raylene:

I think that if I had piles of money just sitting around doing nothing then and I would just like honestly once I go through the list of maybe $3 million that I could possibly spend on my own when I fantasize about winning lotteries it's all about giving away

Curtis:

No I get that I love to give but at the same token when you're rich and that rich your lifestyle change.

Raylene:

Yeah, but he probably wasn't that rich to start with. That sounds like he's a self made billionaire.

Curtis:

Yes. That's usually how they work. Right?

Raylene:

So then his core on his inside means he still lie.

Curtis:

No. And that to me, is a lie. It's compounding. So that 2 million flips into more money. It's still San Francisco. Lying is what I'm telling you like not that he's not a philanthropist. Not that he's not giving he has billions of dollars I think you should give but I also know that he's set for life.

Unknown:

Well look at look at for life.

Curtis:

Why Shouldn't he be here and all that money well earned on the backs of who but he earned the money.

Steve:

Jeff Bezos wife took half of his like trillion dollars. He's discussed she became one of the richest people in the world the day they got divorced, just by Joe right mainframe still doing.

Raylene:

He's just dating a guy wiped out millions of small businesses.

Steve:

He donated half his wealth. He's still doing fine. And you can go finance multiple countries. I mean, yeah.

Raylene:

Half of his income, he'd still have more income than half of Africa.

Steve:

Yeah, he just lost half into his wife and he's still the richest guy in the world.

Curtis:

And a lot of that he has a tax write off when you donate money. That is you these rich people. Well, when I'm gonna say rich, these wealthy people financially wealthy and stable people have it to this algorithm where they understand how much is how much they need to give in order to keep the lion's share of their money. Because don't get Don't get me wrong. We have to donate to Uncle Sam.

Unknown:

donation. Yeah, you're in our country, LeBron

Steve:

James, he makes $35 million a year from the Lakers, he proudly makes another 2034 endorsements every single year, he makes about $100 million a year, right? He has a school that has kids go to high school, and then pays for their colleges. They've already had 47 kids go off to college. If someone who makes 100 million a year can get it, which is a ton of money. Why can't the guy's like the bus family? Who owns the Lakers? You know, we always hear about, Oh, these athletes make too much money? What about the people paying them? And they're though and then the athletes are the ones out doing the charities. And that's not and you don't see the billionaires taking 10% of their income could change the world if each billionaire took 10%. Right, donated to a cause that could change the world or

Curtis:

a nonprofit and a charity is a business. And it has employees that do get paid. Well, yeah, I mean, I'm not a tax write off. So again, instead of paying Uncle Sam, would you rather donate it or pay it to Uncle Sam?

Bradford :

Well, I'm sure the gentlemen is smart. I he's probably paid for this apartment already. He's probably paid for a lifetime's worth of rent. And I'm sure he's probably paid for his car. And if he's super smart, he's probably invested this $2 million in an area where it will work for him his money will do right, all the magic, you know, like it will yield such a return. It's

Raylene:

to live the life that he built for himself, but he's not gonna die with billions of dollars just sitting out there doing nothing. Right? And who

Bradford :

knows if he has kids that either deserve it or don't so would you

Curtis:

give it away? Or would you keep it like

Raylene:

that for a purpose?

Unknown:

That's impressive.

Raylene:

I think that I would do things like LeBron James with building schools. Because again, when I go back into my fantasy, I would build a school in Inner City, New York to teach trades. So that kids when they graduate high school, and I actually think that if you are a foster child, you're fast foster families and the states should make it so that you can get a trade so that when you get out of foster care, you can do something Yeah. Even if you don't like what you do

Steve:

on your own

Raylene:

right and no, and a lot of foster parents like up your 18 out the door by Wow.

Curtis:

Yeah, it's a very good point, right?

Raylene:

I met a girl and this is an absolute God's honest truth. She was 18 years old, she aged out of the system. She did not have a driver's license. How the hell do you age kid out without a driver's license? Right. So what did she do immediately moved over the boyfriend got knocked up got on the system again, because that's all they gave her permission to do. No tools and enrages me, that's horrible. Yeah, I

Steve:

should have broke up our next topic. So it's the holiday season. It's really really, really hard. Now that you're in a situation like this. November 30, and you're like, I'm so fucking done with this person. I want to break up with them do it. Well what do you do? Do you wait till after Christmas? Break up with them before? But now you have that guilt of like, Oh, I have all the gifts they just got me and then I broke up them about a week later so what do you what do you think is the better thing to do today? Well yeah you haven't give that window but but what's worse Oh cuz you're gonna hurt their feelings before the holiday or lied to them during the holiday and then break up with them after the fact like

Raylene:

maybe you stay in for the gift. You'd be like well, you know I have a ps4. What is it? You're looking for a PS five like on you're like well, maybe let me hang out and see what happened Raylene?

Bradford :

Yeah, sorry. You stay in it for the gift. Make it your New Year's resolution resolution and drop that bitch afterwards. Oh,

Raylene:

whatever. they marry them during the holidays.

Unknown:

worse. Oh,

Raylene:

everybody's Facebook blow up with engagements.

Unknown:

My friends, I was

Curtis:

a good time to be a divorce lawyer. Moving forward. No,

Steve:

that's dirty to stay in it for the gift. Of course it is like you're better off to hurt their feelings. I'm a person that hurt their feelings with the gift they just bought. Right?

Curtis:

If you're preparing to break up, break up, your responsibility has nothing to do what happens after the fact if you know in your heart that person's not for you move on, the quicker you get on the quicker those Growing Pains happen and you can evolve and they evolve. That's not your problem anymore. Because

Steve:

if you don't do it before Christmas, well, then you have New Year's and then oh, we're less than a month away from this day. Right? Well do it the day after 45 days now we're talking like mid March is your next opportunity.

Raylene:

So long time nobody want to break up during St. Patrick's Day. Oh yeah, shit.

Unknown:

You

Raylene:

married my gigantic Nadir driver. I was gonna break up with him before drinking. So now we've been married for 25 years and then there's March you're gonna get an

Bradford :

epic, coastal nor'easter and you're going to be snowed in with no one to be with.

Curtis:

I think that's why COVID everyone's getting married until they realize when COVID over I don't the

Steve:

real test person see that should be the new like for relationship counselors. Now. They should just do like self quarantines. Like Alright, 30 days locked up it up. I just that's a new TV show.

Curtis:

There's no such thing as Fox. There's Netflix. Netflix and chill. Netflix is the new thing. It's a new wave streaming. Oh,

Raylene:

Raylene:

Curtis:

Curtis:

What's not sharing? I don't like sharing passwords, because all my passwords are typically the same. The same? Yeah.

Raylene:

So I just had somebody asked that on Facebook earlier and they're like with your part. Well, now I've been married for 25 years and I think probably most of the people who answered were Thank you. Um, and she said do you share passwords with your partner? And I was like, not only I mean, I share everything you can Yeah, our bank accounts like my face opens his phone his phone open his face opens my phone like all of the entire families on Find My iPhone. But like somebody had said the other day on one of the radio quizzes and they were like you know, if you're sharing your your find my friends, your your partner stalking you, you're they don't trust you. And I'm like, bitch, I want to know how far away so we can get off the couch and wipe down a counter and act like I haven't been laying there all day.

Steve:

I want to know my daughter's our case they disappear. tell you one night my daughter. My daughter lives in New York City.

Oh my god toryism if she Okay, can you call her? Is she all right? And I was just like, why didn't you just call her? So I messaged her, her and I was like, are you okay? And she's like, Yeah, why? And I'm like, dad can't find you, uh, find my friends. And he's flipping out. And she said, Oh, we're playing on a scavenger hunt game. And so everybody had to turn off their find my friends so that they couldn't follow each other to all of the different places. And my husband, lovely beside himself thinking that Tori was dead in New York City somewhere.

Steve:

He wouldn't a scavenger.

Raylene:

I have no idea.

Unknown:

I hope it was worth.

Raylene:

But it was so funny because we don't look. I mean, we do kind of obsessively look like upstairs or dorm screenshots or is in New York City. Like I mean, it's just but it's for fun. It's not because we don't trust each other. But it's fun too. Because sometimes I do comedy and comedy clubs, and I'll hang out afterwards talk to the comedians or whatever. And one time my husband got a little pissy with me and I get home and he's like, Where the fuck were you? And I'm like, you gotta find my friends. You know exactly what the fuck I was. And I walked in the bedroom shut the door. drop the mic beds.

Steve:

just seems like I'm gonna lie about being at the bar. Yeah, I just left an hour ago or they're sad, but I feel like it opens up like it's okay in a healthy relationship for life guys, but like, relationship of the Yeah, no friend that doesn't trust the girl that goes out with their friends. Yeah, that's always walking around in the alleyways behind the bars waiting for to come out. Like that's the first time I saw that technology. I'm like, how are people cool with this shit, right? Like, next level stuff.

Curtis:

This is what happens when you know healthy relations.

Raylene:

Right? That is the point that is the way that we are the whole family is in a healthy relationship. safety, safety stocking and just for fun, you know, like every now and I'm like, oh, Sarah, you're at Walmart, pick up some 3d Doritos.

Unknown:

No hidden agenda behind it. Just

Steve:

I would never let my parents know worry. I'm

Raylene:

still paying a bill. Oh.

Curtis:

When you're still paying the bill, you're liable to be tracked.

Raylene:

I think we just don't care. Like it's like, I don't care. You know, I don't care if they find me. I don't care if they don't you know, we're not none of us are doing anything wrong.

Curtis:

We're too busy swiping left and right. And in toxic relationships.

Raylene:

Right. I hope someday that you find a loving partner where you want to share passwords and where you are at all times.

Unknown:

I don't want to sign up for

Steve:

my password that you ain't led or you're not know where I am.

Raylene:

It's funny, because with my youngest, I actually got it on her phone without her knowing. And it took like six months before I accidentally said that I had it on. She's like, how did you get it? And I'm like, remember that time you couldn't figure out how to backup to the iCloud kind of edit it.

Bradford :

So at what point is it okay then to add or to give like, let's say you're your girlfriend or boyfriend, their own phone on your account, and you start giving them these accesses? At what point is that okay?

Raylene:

It's it's gonna be a while. I mean, I mean, you don't want to jump right into that shit.

Steve:

There has to be a point to live with them. I feel like if you're living, right, yeah,

Raylene:

you're living once you've discovered that they are not psychos, you know? If you're sharing a bank account, then at that point, you better share passwords because you don't want to find yourself locked out of the account. True. And it's got to be the right relationship. True. Oh,

Curtis:

I feel like the female on the show was giving us all relationship advice. You ain't

Steve:

ever gonna know where I am though. I'm not in your marriage.

Bradford :

Do you guys share? Share like bank accounts and stuff? Well, yeah, I mean, one time. passwords, location, location, no passwords. No, but we don't do it because we don't do it because we decided not to in fact, we had a conversation we I don't know. For example, the other day, right? This is true fact. Right? We pulled to the ATM and I'm driving it was his bank card. And I was like, what's your PIN number? You know, all these years married? I don't even know what his pin numbers but it's not because he never wanted to give it to him. He gave it to me right then and there. So like, we hide each other stuff. We just never What? What if he came to you and said, Hey,

Steve:

I would like to know where your location is all the time and can be there. Yeah,

Unknown:

I have nothing to hide do it?

Curtis:

Absolutely not.

Raylene:

Yeah,

Steve:

I think I've not. I want I still want privacy of some sense in a relationship.

Raylene:

I think what happened with us is my husband does tend to be a little jealous. And also I do those parties. So I'm out in other strangers homes all the time. So yeah, that just

Steve:

seems like it's like a recipe. interesting perspective,

Raylene:

right? I'm following but part of it was like I don't ever want him to be like, this bitches cheating on me. You know, cuz people who are naturally jealous tend to make shit up in their heads. So if he says where's the party? I say it's in Salem, and Then he can look and see him in Salem. Yeah, then it was it just made it easier on me to just, you know, I'm always honest anyway, but now he can just check it. What is it like trust but verify, right?

Curtis:

That that was good clarity for me. So if I'm married and in a relationship and married then yeah, I would do that just because I'm always traveling and trust is always a huge thing because I'm always somewhere, right? And envy is a thing like when you're working but on a beach or at an event,

Unknown:

so I get that, but you know, you're kind of hot.

Steve:

Yeah, but there's so begin a blow job in the church bathroom. You can do that if she knew where you are. I'm at church studying. Yes, I can still pull it off.

Raylene:

Right, but it doesn't matter. She doesn't know you're getting a blowjob in a church bathroom. The real

Curtis:

question is, is there a pastor?

Raylene:

Is the pastor go? Too far fire?

Steve:

I didn't know this was involved.

Raylene:

A little old. Is it? Well,

Steve:

I guess we'll wrap it up on something inappropriate as usual. We're gonna take a commercial break. And when we come back, we will be with our guest, Jonathan Prichard who is a mentalist.

Raylene:

Curtis? Where were you? I thought you were gonna miss the podcast.

Curtis:

I was grocery shopping. And it was rough. I had to run all over town to get everything on my list. And I got elbow dropped by a little old lady over a pack of toilet paper. I don't see what's so great about shopping.

Raylene:

It's a pain. That's because you're doing it wrong. I did all my shopping while we were on the last commercial break. And most of it will be here by the time the show was over. See what

Curtis:

how did you manage that? Did you get yourself a personal shopper?

Raylene:

Nope. Even better. instacart. Instead of having to play separate orders at every store, I can place one order for all my favorites from a variety of local grocery stores on instacart and there'll be delivered to my doorstep in as fast as an hour. even let you know when your favorite items go on sale.

Keith:

you're listening to undebatable here's Raylene Curtis, Steve and Bradford.

Steve:

Well, if you are a mind reader, you know it is time for our guests. We have a very special guest His name is Jonathan Prichard. For more than 15 years, Jonathan has traveled the world as a professional mentalist. He's practiced martial arts daily for seven plus years. He's entertained the troops overseas performed on Vegas mainstage has appeared on national television, he's literally checked off every box of success and entertainment he could think of but still felt like something was missing. He found the hellstorm group and international consulting agency helping people transform their thinking and create a life they've never dreamed was possible. He's also the author of think like a mind reader. Please welcome to our podcast. Jonathan Pritchard. Welcome.

Unknown:

Thank you. Thank you. That guy sounds like an asshole. You're a mind reader. a jerk? Well, you you That was perfect.

Steve:

You probably are already aware of the first question I'm gonna ask you. Yep. How did you become a professional mind reader?

Unknown:

Kind of by accident. It was a hobby that turned into a paying gig that turned into a career. My first paying gig was when I was 13 years old. I I was a fill in for kind of a local magician who couldn't make make the company's holiday late summer picnic. And he goes, Hey, I know a kid. That'd be great. Plus this 200 bucks worth. I don't care if he's awful. So hey, Jonathan, you want to go do some magic tricks at this company's summer picnic? Oh, yeah, sure. So I got paid 200 bucks to walk around for two hours and make people laugh though. Like That was easy. Let me let me keep doing that. And that was just the first of many to follow.

Curtis:

What's the secret to magic and mentalism the secret to magic and mentalism? And sorry is dramatic and this question

Unknown:

well, everybody wants to know how does this trick work? How does that trick work? Okay, what what was that one thing you did it to me it's more interesting to use tricks as ways in to understand how people think and orient to reality how we experience life. So the meta explanation for every single magic trick every single mind reading trick you've ever seen is The Mentalist or magician creates a context for the audience to make logical assumptions that are later shown to not be true. Let me show you this box. It is empty. Oh, wow, yeah, that makes sense. That box sure does look empty. There's a tiger. Oh shit, I thought that box was empty. But magic, I feel like you just described politics.

Raylene:

Like you just described a marriage

Unknown:

the old bait and switch in the context of a magic show, that's fun because you know you're going to be fooled and then the magician fools you. But if the magician makes you feel foolish, then that's no good. And outside the context of that performance being lied to is usually a big bummer. But it's a thing that happens all the time in politics and sales, business relationships. So that's why I'm kind of on a on a holy crusade to show people the ethical ways to lie, which is to tell people you're gonna lie. My mentor, he often he called himself an honest liar. He's like magicians were the only honest liars out there because we tell our audiences what's about to happen and then then we lied to them and that's what we get paid to do. All right, that's good point.

Raylene:

So I saw that you were on national television. Was that on America's Got Talent?

Unknown:

It was and and there's another one, Penn and Teller Fulop. You should be on that shows like saying so. I went out for both of them went through the whole taping and everything and for whatever reason for both the producers for like, yeah, your segments not making it to air. But I was. I've had friends call me like, Hey, I saw you for exactly 1.7 seconds on America's Got Talent. Was that actually I was like, yeah, that's my big break. Thanks.

Raylene:

That would be on my YouTube reel. could absolutely be on my reel. What did you learn though? Oh, that you can wind up on the cutting room floor no matter how good you are.

Unknown:

Yeah, exactly. The fact that no one thing is going to make or break you. Everybody thinks this is gonna be this is gonna be at my whole life is going to change. It might for a month or two. And then everybody goes, Yeah, America's Got Talent. What I don't you are on there. Okay, that's me. So, yeah, it's it's kind of counting you're performing eggs before they hatch and go, Oh, I was on national TV. I did all these things, mom. And she's like, great, when's it gonna air you're like, oh, about that. It's been, it's been nine months. Maybe it's not going to thanks.

Raylene:

What am I good comedian friend says the same thing. He said there is no one show that is more important than any other show. It could be on the biggest stage doesn't mean it's going to go anywhere. So just do all shows like that the last show.

Unknown:

So Jonathan, exactly what made you transition focus from performing to coaching because I understand that's something that you do as well. The main reason is, as a performer, I help people forget their problems for an hour for about 70 minutes, they're laughing having a great time, we're getting to know each other in and form really cool connections and relationships in a way that most people never get to in their nine to five job. So it's a really, really cool occupation and career in passion, and in a way of life. So that's awesome. At the end of the performance, at the end of the autograph line, I'm sending them right back out into their lives that are awful. They hate their lives. They just, it's it's just hot garbage. So eventually, I started thinking about the psychological techniques I used on stage to make it look like I can read minds in very believable demonstrations. I realized that I had used in my own life, to kind of psych myself out of situations and problems and kind of psych myself into believing I am good enough to be on national TV, all those kinds of things. And then I realized the next level, which is Oh, well, if I actually explain how all this stuff works, then other people will be better equipped to solve their problems long term, rather than just being distracted by by those techniques. So that's that was kind of a the doors opening to Okay, still doing the entertaining, still performing, having fun on stage. And then in my consulting work, working with companies and people to help them build better strategies to get what it is that they want, whether it's sales numbers go up, or I want to have more friends, like yeah, I can I can show you how to do that kind

Steve:

of stuff. Well, Jonathan, after I speak with you for a few minutes, it's pretty obvious you were a very shy individual and not very outgoing. Obviously, I'm kidding. How does your personality help with the career you're having and where you are always like this or where there's like a moment in time where you're like the shy kid and then one day you're broke out of your shell,

Unknown:

that's a that's a big one is I am intensely introverted. And I've learned how to behave and outgoing ways. So it helps my helps my business a lot, because you're not going to learn how to do world class sleight of hand by going out and partying all the time. You're, you're going to get really good by staying at home, talking to nobody being in a room by yourself for hours until it's dark. And then birds start chirping you go Oh, I guess now it's daytime again, like that. being by yourself energy is how you get really, really good at things. So I love being by myself and Finn when I go out because I realized, yeah, the shy kids don't usually get the fun adventures.

Raylene:

I was gonna say laid But okay, that's

Unknown:

exactly why I don't watch TV. The nice way of putting getting getting some, yeah. So if I learned how to be outgoing and have my shtick of being a fun, outgoing person, suddenly people would want me around. And then being around people is how you find out about opportunities and get invited to other opportunities. So the more outgoing I behave, the better my life gets. But at the end of the day, I'm like, boy, I'm so glad that autograph line is done. I am, I'm gonna go back into the car, and spend three days driving across the country talking to nobody, and it's gonna be awesome.

Raylene:

Remember that time you met me in an airport?

Unknown:

I don't know why. But was there like $1? sticking out of my backpack?

Raylene:

Yeah, there was a Yeah, there's $1 sticking out of your backpack. And I asked if it was a test to find out how honest the people were behind you in line. And then we sat in the airport and talked for two hours, which I'm pretty sure you were just hoping to like check out of life, but you met me and I never stopped talking.

Unknown:

That was that was a rare moment where actually enjoyed it. Oh, it's a rare moment. Because most of the time when I'm traveling, I am I'm jet lagged or the airplane is the only time I have to sleep before I have to land and then go be on stage in front of 2000 people. So usually when I'm traveling that's not happy go lucky. Hey, let's talk to people time. But you are actually cool enough to your just your energy. I was just like, yeah, I'm, I'm going to enjoy this layover, instead of instead of just scrolling through Twitter, I actually met a human being so that was kind of a nice change of pace. It was fun. Isn't kung fu a bunch of punching and kicking and screaming? You forgot? I was getting to scream.

Raylene:

Is that the high? part?

Unknown:

Yeah, but the key I it's mainly about being able to scream forcefully. But basically, my my philosophy is that there are fundamental forces that govern the universe. That's why they're universal force, the gravity momentum, those kinds of things, the human pattern is essentially the same, regardless of if you're taller or shorter. Elbow is south of the shoulder is north of the wrist, that kind of thing. All right. So given that there are universal forces, and the human pattern is relatively the same, then there are better and worse strategies for aligning your human pattern with the forces of the universe. And that means at a base physical level, then added emotional and intellectual than kind of the energy vibe to things. So if you don't know how to align your body to physical reality, I don't want your advice on energy or emotions and that kind of thing. So martial arts is a laboratory to try out all these strategies within the context of the physical body. So to me, it's just a really, really cool meditation chamber, marketing strategy testing facility, like everything in life can be can be learned in the ring. What do

Raylene:

you think of Cobra Kai?

Unknown:

COVID The show is badass. I love it. Like what a What a great loser story. I love absolute screw up this dude is

Raylene:

Just the screw up right where Besides just destroying, destroying everything and and just trying not to but blundering through life you're like, yeah, that that sounds familiar.

Raylene:

I feel like it's it's shameless but out of Chicago. He can nobody can make a right decision to save their lives.

Unknown:

Exactly. It's like it'd be a really boring show of people are making good decisions right? Really, as I'm hearing it James is that you're feeling attacked and vulnerable. That your your weaknesses being shown on display and you're worried that I'm going to take advantage of that. Is that what I'm here? Yes, I'm

Raylene:

gonna lash out and set your car on fire

Curtis:

that's that's a horrible Should I hear the screaming work?

Curtis:

Raylene:

It's just that we've had conversations in the past. So I was curious about the marriage thing.

Curtis:

So did you ever receive a Christmas gift knowing what it was? And it wasn't what you wanted, and had to pretend to be excited about it?

Unknown:

Sadly, yes. When I was a kid, my parents used to let us open one present on Christmas Eve. And it was always the same thing with my brother and me. And one year my brother opened it up and it was a Days of Thunder t shirt. So that tells you how long ago this was. So open up the Days of Thunder t shirt. Yeah, I'm getting DS a thunder t shirt. Buck. Yeah. Then I open mine up and it's underwear.

Curtis:

I was just trying to make sure he was out of my mind.

Steve:

That's crazy. Who would have known that just being a weird magician. I'm not calling him weird. But you're a magician. You got hired to do some little summer camp. Barbecue randomness and your life changes like that. Like how many people's stories are the same, but in a different way from like, that opportunity opens for you. And you just

Curtis:

like the game, every entrepreneur should say the same. Good. Notice Mangle that word.

Steve:

You know what every person that situation said, Okay, I can do this. Yeah, but we know you couldn't. But it was fucking I got this.

Raylene:

It's It's uh, I mean, it. You know, I'm an entrepreneur and a comedian. And I do my comedy shows. And now I'm doing a talk. I mean, that it's all literally the universe just throws your shit and it's whether or not you go no or whether or not you just catch it. And then if you catch it, you're on a different path

Curtis:

where animals sink or swim. It's like the little birdie. You know out the nest, you fly like use your wings, you got a Don't be afraid and let your personality shine. Networking is key. You have never that's the only thing I heard then is he was able to network. He didn't say that. But that's what happened. He's

Raylene:

he's got some pretty good cuz he's also done the college tour. You too, right? But that was me networking with $1 bill behind him. But we did we just we sat and we chatted and he had just come back from doing a mentalist performance in Maine. And I was about to do five minutes at zanies in Nashville, that I wasn't hired before they were doing like one of their their nights where people come in, it's like a contest, and I was already going down there for pure romance convention. And so I was like, Hey, I'm gonna be there. Can I come do five minutes and I had just started comedy like three months, maybe three months in, in you know, here's this guy and he's a professional performer and we just chatted in our energy was great. And you know, we just became friends. And it's so weird that you want finding him and nothing to do with exactly had nothing to do with me. It was just weird. Like he

Curtis:

well can also be dry. Yeah, exactly.

Bradford :

I think it's hilarious that he fits right in with us. He's like, on our level and maybe read our mind for like his sense of humor has like everything. Nope, I

Unknown:

shut him out what

Steve:

he's saying about being an introvert, but like he has skills outwardly like, I don't know about you guys, but at least for me, everyone goes, Oh, you're so outgoing. Like No, honestly, my favorite place is alone at home. I don't want to I don't want to be out with people. My phone rings. It's annoying. But guess what, when I need to go out? Yeah, I love people. I love I'm on the radio every single day. Your City Councilmember Bradford is the amazing Bradford Oh,

Bradford :

no, it's funny is that I'm actually an extrovert except when I get in front of this microphone here. Hmm. I'm like the least quiet out of I mean, I'm the most quiet out of all

Unknown:

I want to be alone.

Raylene:

I always thought I was an extra burner. Until you know now that my kids are gone. My husband was back to work for a while and I'm home by myself eight hours a day in silence. And I love my silence. And I didn't realize because I was like, Oh, I need people like honestly if I'm out with people then I'll absorb their energy but it will last for a really long time. I will be home reading doing Netflix and I'll interact on Facebook but I don't have to hear the noise or be surrounded by people I am happy and we're not saying we don't want to be around.

Steve:

No I want to play around when we need people they can be there but my the happiest version of me. I it's so hard for me when I started doing mornings and radio is I still do I want to stay up till four or five o'clock in the morning because nighttime alone, there's no work. There's no there's nothing. It's just you and wherever you want it. When Jonathan said that you can be really good at stuff when you're alone all the time is because you have that free time. night for me is like this beautiful time for you to be alone and be with yourself and your thoughts. And if you want to indulge in something intelligent, go if you want to go mindlessly watch Netflix for four hours, but it's your time and that's so beautiful.

Curtis:

That could just be our Human Design. If people are aware of their human design, then that's it because that's me. That's me. I'm exhausted after a day of giving to everyone. And being that personality and influencer. I'm like, Nope, I will raincheck I'm the guy that goes out to eat by himself and orders a really nice meal. And it's just chillin.

Bradford :

You don't find that awkward. I don't want that eating alone. Or it could be

Raylene:

if I'm out of my house. I want people I want to be it.

Unknown:

So what am I gonna do? I don't do small talk like what am I? No.

Steve:

sit at the bar. If you don't like small talk, I will sit at the bar every single time COVID at a dive bar down the road from my house. I go there on Thursday football game and beyond. I get I drink two beers get a burger. It's it's old timer bar. So either they're gonna try to talk to you or Don't you dare even look at me. So the old timer wants to talk to you, you throw it back. And now a they slide up you talk. You can have a great conversation for like three hours or if you don't want to talk, you don't talk it in a bar like that. They know the deal. So, but if you sit at the bar, you're opening yourself up to people if

Unknown:

I would never go to

Curtis:

a table alone. You come out to eat with me. You'll see they approach me I'm just like, I'm just really well, that's what you get for being approachable. I'm just like, oh, the worst part was like one day I had friends coming in from Massachusetts. One guy works with JLo. And they're coming into this fashion show. I brought him

Unknown:

a dropper,

Curtis:

whatever. So we're eating and I brought them local because I'm like, let's support local business or whatever like that from my hometown, and I'm bringing them they just flew in from Miami. Whatever ones from us, Jesus, as I said, so we're sitting down we're eating then the owner of the restaurant comes over and he pulls up a seat. Oh, that's awkward. Then he sits here said

Steve:

it's awkward. I mean for 15 minutes. Wine while you're doing

Raylene:

did he only talk to you? Are you talking to everybody to me?

Curtis:

Okay, no, no other people just talk to me now then. 30 minutes go by now it's 45 minutes. Wow. Now it's an hour now. I'm awkward because I'm I'm I'm an empath. So I know I'm at home. I have to stop this so I stop it finally. We get the bill. There is no discount. No free wine.

Raylene:

That bitch sat there for an hour.

Curtis:

You sat when you sat with us. I brought business to you. You sat with us and took away from our meal at the least you could do is be like oh drinks romney

Steve:

know the bottles out of me. Hey, well, I'm sitting here. Everything's on me because I feel

Curtis:

worse. Hence why I don't like going out.

Steve:

Now. I know. I didn't name drop before you told the story. Exactly.

Raylene:

Tell me later, right? No, I like my quiet. But I like my like, I think it has to do with ADHD. And I've told this, like when my daughter used to do dance competitions. I love people, but I can only love them. If I am in a corner and all the people are in front of me. I can't have 360 degree noise or I just can't settle. Like there's always if but like, even when I have big parties at my house, I will sit in the corner of my kitchen. So the whole kitchen is front of me. And I'm like, I get you a drink. I'll get you like I play bartender, whatever. But if I have 360 degree, it's too much for me.

Curtis:

surrounding you. Yeah, it just I need a corner is why you meditate for only five minutes because it's 36 degrees surrounding.

Raylene:

I'm not 100% sure why I do anything. Have

Curtis:

you ever drink wine and then meditated? No, okay. I

Raylene:

don't know. I drink wine. And then I you

Bradford :

know, if you meditate when you're high, you will just fall that I've never been.

Unknown:

Oh, it's like you've never done it.

Raylene:

Gotta get you. Oh, that's my problem is every time I'm ready to drink. Ready to get high. I'm usually already drunk and then I get high and I fall asleep.
