Okay. What are you doing? Bam. We’re live with Alex Stein. Prime time, 99. I stole it all. There. He is. What are you doing at? What are you doing at eight 30?

Alex Stein (00:10):

I’m going on sky Australia news. Some Australia news thing. Oh shit.

Sevan Matossian (00:14):

You gotta meet. Do you know Avi over there?

Alex Stein (00:17):

No, but some girl name. Let me find out who her name is.

Sevan Matossian (00:21):

You know who Avy is, right? You’ve seen his shit on Instagram. He’s the guy.

Alex Stein (00:24):

Yeah, of course. He’s always had the protest.

Sevan Matossian (00:26):

Yeah. How we do have you talked to him?

Alex Stein (00:28):

Never have

Sevan Matossian (00:29):

You. Okay. Whoever talks to him first is bigger. If you get him first, you’re bigger than me. If I get him first, I’m bigger than you. When I was, oh, fuck it. Let’s I wanna show something. Oh,

Alex Stein (00:41):

We are live. We’re live right now. Okay. I didn’t realize, I thought you were kidding. Oh, let’s go price. I 99. Let’s do

Sevan Matossian (00:47):

It. When, when, when I, I, I was, um, I was, uh, living in a house in college and you at UC Santa Barbara. And there was this guy that came into my house one time when me and my friends were just sitting around smoking weed and we were playing like Nintendo or something. Right. This is in, let’s say 1997. I dunno. Exactly. And the guy comes in

Alex Stein (01:06):

97, the nineties, man, I miss him compared today. Sorry, go ahead.

Sevan Matossian (01:09):

And uh, there was a guy in there with, uh, a guy comes in, his name was car, uh, a big black dude, dreadlocks. I’d seen him all around town for years. I went to school there and he comes in and he’s all fucked up. Right. But super nice, but so fucked up and drunk. And just, it’s like, like I’m this fucking preppy college student. Like, what the fuck are you doing at my house? My parents pay rent in here. There’s six of us, cool kids in here. He just walks into our house and he is just being a belligerent dude. But he’s so nice. No threat at all. You know what I mean? Just good vibe, but joy.

Alex Stein (01:37):

Well in college, you hang out with anybody. You know what I mean? Yeah. Yeah. It’s different. Okay. Sorry. You wouldn’t do that as an adult. Go

Sevan Matossian (01:43):

Ahead. Right. Well mean, uh, so, well,

Alex Stein (01:45):

You know what I mean? I’m saying in college, like you almost hang out with like sketchy people, cuz you’ve never hung out with sketchy people before. It’s your first time like in your house? Like that’s where that’s when we were buying cocaine and stuff. We’d hang out with the cocaine dealer in LSU. Like, so you, you would never do that now. You know what I mean? Just because thought we were being edgy or

Sevan Matossian (02:01):

Something. Remember what you just said. You’d never do that now. Cause I’m gonna tie this back to you, Mr. Stein. Okay. So I, I, I tell this dude, Hey dude, get the fuck outta my house. And he’s like, all right. And you know, I’m gonna be a Dick and he fucking leaves. Right? Mm-hmm <affirmative> flash forward six months and, and I’m fucking homeless. And it’s just me by myself. And I’m walking through this fucking park with my dog and I’m homeless. Right? All my shit driving. Were, were

Alex Stein (02:26):

You outta school yet? Or what was

Sevan Matossian (02:27):

The deal? No, nah, nah, mom and dad were like, Hey, you’ve been an undergrad for 10 years. Fucking your toast actually mom. Mom’s like Uhuh. Okay. So I’m in the park. It’s my first day being homeless. I’m like, oh fuck. Everyone’s left. Like all my roommates leave and move, go home for the summer. And I’m like, holy fuck. It’s just me and this fucking dog. Where am I gonna sleep tonight? What am I gonna do? And this fucking dude who I kicked outta my house comes walking across this park towards me. And I’m sitting in the middle of the park. It’s like a, it’s like a two acre park. It’s a small like corner park on a street in Santa Barbara. And um, he he’s walking towards me. He’s got a big black trash bag and he goes, Hey dude, what’s up? And I go, Hey, what’s up man? And I’m way more cool now. Right? And he opens up the fucking trash bag and he’s got like 20 rotiserie chickens in there

Alex Stein (03:10):

In the plastic.

Sevan Matossian (03:12):

And he goes, you want one? I’m like, damn dude, do I ever? Cause I was tripping on what I was gonna feed my dog that day. I had no money. Homeless parents cut me off and I take one and me and that dude end up being friends for the next five years. Bros. Just tight. Just so tight. Right? <laugh> yeah. When I invited you on the show, I was scared to fucking death to invite you on the fucking show. I’m like, who the fuck is this fucking guy with these fucking, the moon landing? The nine 11, wait to all his crazy shit. I go, no one. This, this guy could fucking tarnish my reputation. He says shit that like, I’ll never come back from, hanging out with him is like doing January 6th. Oh my God. Huh. But I was like, let face that fear. I’m gonna face that fear. Yeah. And, and, and then, and then I have you on the fucking show and you have the audacity to tell me, Hey, I’m streaming line on my YouTube channel.

Alex Stein (04:00):

I’m like, what’s the, which I’m not today. I’m not today, but I

Sevan Matossian (04:03):

Why you chill me? You’re

Alex Stein (04:04):

Well, you, you wanted me to stream on my channel.

Sevan Matossian (04:06):

Fuck. Yeah, I do. You the man

Alex Stein (04:08):

I can add at the

Sevan Matossian (04:09):

Time, at the time you only had like 4,000 subscribers. I was crushing you on Instagram. You’re just some fucking dude. I, I just wanted to play with fire. I just wanted to play with ally. I just wanted, I just wanted to touch and, and poke fun. Maybe a little massage, feel fucking a, I hear Jorge Ventura claim. You’re the funniest man in the world or the funniest man in the United States. I’m like, whoa, Jorge’s a serious reporter. I fucking text Jorge. I’m like what? The fuck’s up with you and steins dude, he’s a man. I look over on your fucking YouTube and you’ve just torched me. You lose more subscribers and gain more in than I gain in today. You got the deal with blaze TV. I’m like, holy shit. It’s the fucking guy in the park, again, walking up with his fucking bag. And like, I’m like this, guy’s never gonna come on my podcast again. He made it this.

Alex Stein (04:50):

Oh, shut up, dude. It’s so funny. You say that too, because you know, I, I, so many people reach out to have me on their podcast, this and that. And, and so like, you know, I like to do people’s podcasts. Of course I wanna do yours. Um, but sometimes I ask people to come on my podcast that don’t have anything to do with conspiracies. Like you just said, and dude, they, I get nos a lot because they’re nervous. They’re like, oh, I’m in, I talk about sports or I’m a comedian like I’ll ask comedians on. And comedians are like, I don’t know. I wanna come on. So it’s funny how really, and truly like, I guess the, the word conspiracy theorist was created by the CIA to demonize anybody looking into the official story. But that word has been stuck into our brains. Like it’s a VA

Sevan Matossian (05:28):

The word wasn’t created for that, but the, the narrative, the

Alex Stein (05:33):

Negative. Yes. The negative connotation around it. It was literally after JK. So no, you’re a hundred percent. Right. And it’s funny because I wasn’t even at January 6th, but dude, you’re you’re right. It’s like I am edgy. And that’s the reason I didn’t think I was gonna sign a deal with a blaze, but I think they kind of wanted somebody that with a little bit of edness cuz when they really look into my story, I’m really not that edgy. I just talk about, I just talk about taboo subjects that a lot of people won’t talk about. Um, because they were, you know, Alex, you know, you talk about, you know, the moon landing, that’s the first thing people always talk about. But really dude, when, when we talk about the moon landing, we talk about that. It’s like so easily debunk. But the problem is people are emotionally attached to it. They’re like, oh no, we a hundred percent.

Sevan Matossian (06:12):

I’m emotionally attached to it.

Alex Stein (06:13):

Of course, of course. And I get that like, and I don’t even want to. And that’s another thing, dude, me and what I’m doing and why I’ve started to be successful. The reason you had me on your show that first time is I had that super viral video of me doing the vaccine dance. And you know, I I’d had, you know, I mean I had a little following before that. It wasn’t like, but that was the

Sevan Matossian (06:29):

Don’t ruin my story. Don’t ruin my story. Don’t ruin.

Alex Stein (06:31):

Well, no, but you, what I’m saying is, you know how the, the saying goes is you gotta work your whole life to become an overnight success. So it wasn’t like I just, you know, one viral video and, and you get picked up by the blaze and all this stuff. But my point, oh dude,

Sevan Matossian (06:42):

With that, hold that, uh, Caleb roll the film 45. What? He just said what Alex Stein just said. And then I promise you guys I’ll stop interrupting him as much. He just said, you’re not an overnight success. Now listen to this and take everyone. Just be cool. Take a deep breath, close your eyes and listen to the two minutes of Alex nine here. This is for everybody in the world. Please listen.

Alex Stein (07:03):

I can talk funny so nobody can stop me because I got a computer. I got a keyboard too. So I got everything you got and then some, so you’re messing with a master. <laugh> there’s very few people that can grind. Like I grind and shine. Like I shine <laugh> now am I the biggest deal? No, no, I’m not. I ain’t not. But I’m about to be. Yeah. I’m about to be a big a deal as they say. Yeah. And nobody can stop that. Yep. Except for myself, unless I get whacked out on drugs or alcohol, unless I sell myself, you know, short, which a lot of people do, which most people do, which I did for a big part of my life, you know, becoming a debt slave and you know, basically working a job just to pay my bills instead of taking a chance on myself. Mm-hmm <affirmative> everybody here should take a lesson. I’m not a role model. Wouldn’t you take more chances on herself. That doesn’t mean to open a Ponzi scheme, multilevel marketing crap.

Sevan Matossian (08:11):

That hit me hard by the way. I

Alex Stein (08:12):

Mean go out there and create something other than just hate on the internet. Mm-hmm <affirmative> and maybe you’re not even creating hate. That doesn’t mean don’t do something either. You know, even if you’re just an norm person, you need to go create too. Everybody needs to create something. You need to just take chances and be civil disobedient at the same time. And this isn’t advi. Wow. I hate watching myself over though. Makes it it’s hard. That’s

Sevan Matossian (08:39):

Jordan Peterson shit, dude.

Alex Stein (08:41):

Oh, I don’t know about that, but you’re nice. I mean, you’re a motivator too. So you get it. Like I played high school football sport. I mean I’ve played high school football. I played sports or something about the competition that brings out, you know, the leader in you you’re either a leader or a follower. And I feel like I’m just naturally a leader. So when I speak like that, it’s like, I’m just speaking from the heart. It’s not even that brilliant or anything. I’m just talking for my gut as they say, but that’s a thing. Yeah.

Sevan Matossian (09:04):

I can tell. I can tell you’re almost channeling. I can tell you kind of get into this. Um, you have a black affect about you. You want to be embraced by the black culture so bad. You are like a black it’s too bad. There’s so many people who are fucking with the identity thing because you really are a white man trapped. You are a white man. You are a, you’re a black man trapped in a white man. Well,

Alex Stein (09:24):

You know what? I grew up in a bail bond office. My, my dad is a bail bonds. So all I did, I was literally raised by black guys that got outta jail that were my babysitter. My whole life. I didn’t ever have race racist. Well, no, because because every time I had a female babysitter, I was so bad. They couldn’t handle me. So my dad would have ex-cons basically watch me. So I that’s why I have that affect is yeah. I mean I’m from Dallas, Texas, and I definitely, and dude, I’m a culture vulture. I love the black culture. I love everything about it. Cuz like as an athlete, as a person that loves sports. Now I really hate sports. Basically. I’m pro sports kind of make me sick to day and age, but yes,

Sevan Matossian (09:56):

UFC, do you like the UFC?

Alex Stein (09:57):

Well of course UFC’s awesome. But that’s a one man wrecking team, you know, that’s like, that’s a little different than like these team sports or these divas are like, and UFC, they don’t get paid enough. So like that, I definitely like them, but these players that sit out, cause they’re not getting paid or fake injuries and, and like LeBron, James acts like he’s all political and he, he, every time he has a book, he’s only read the first page. It just, I just don’t think they use their platform for a positive thing. Like these selling,

Sevan Matossian (10:20):

Selling Sprite, selling Sprite to, to black kids while he came. Well, he claims he cares about black lives.

Alex Stein (10:26):

Yeah. I mean, seriously, that’s all he does is try to sell. And he, he sells us out for China. Like he just cares about money, but this is what I don’t get. If you have 20 million, if you have 40 million, if you have 60 million, how is that not enough money. I mean, at some point you don’t get to take this money with you. And these people have this idea, like it’s a pissing match. Oh, if I have X amount of dollars, I’ll feel better. But this is one thing I’ve learned is that materialism is probably like the, the, the worst thing. And most poisonous thing we can have because people will put their whole entire self worth into an init object that, that doesn’t even know they exist. And a lot of people, that’s how they shape their ego was the crap that we have around us. And there’s nothing more poisonous cuz this crap doesn’t matter. And there’s always new crap that’s coming out. So I think that’s what’s wrong with our society. Especially the younger kids. They’re so attached to material things like it has to be Gucci. It has to be in my TikTok. It

Sevan Matossian (11:16):

Has. Oh, that’s what you said. They’re attached to material things. I think you might be conflating something here. Let me propose this to you. Okay. I have no problem with LeBron selling Sprite. I have no problem with Bezos going to the moon or Mars. I think it’s fucking awesome. This is the problem I have about, and I have no problem with someone making a billion dollars. 5 billion. Yeah. I have a problem with the lying.

Alex Stein (11:37):

Yeah. Okay. Me too. But

Sevan Matossian (11:39):

If LeBron could say I wouldn’t drink this shit, you’ll never make it to the top drink in that shit. If he could say that. So, so this company paper street coffee, they’re like, Hey, we wanna sponsor you. Yeah. I said, I drink good coffee. They said, yeah. Do they pay you? I said, no. He said, okay, well we’re gonna pay you. I go, but I I’m still gonna drink. Good dudes. He goes, I don’t give a fuck. I go, you don’t give a fuck. <laugh> he goes, no, I go, why are you gonna gimme money? He goes, cause I want your show to survive and fuck God bless him. Wow. I okay. Okay. Asshole, send me some of your fucking coffee. So he sends me some of his coffee to little fucking brown beans that are just roasted and don’t have all that shit on him. I drink the coffee. I get all wound up. And I’m almost as fucking got almost as much money as Alex Stein, but just honesty. <laugh> right.

Alex Stein (12:24):

Yeah. That’s why he sold you. He said, I don’t care. I respect that. We did need to be more transparent. We need to be more unapologetically ourself. You’re right. It’s like we all lie to fit in or to try to make people like us. And there’s a saying, it’s like your biggest fan is a stranger and your biggest enemy is somebody close to you. You know? So it’s like, we really, we shouldn’t lie to people to try to impress. ’em like lie. And dude, everybody’s had a white lie, but it’s like these people that, you know, that just misrepresent stuff in order to, you know, pull a fast one on somebody there there’s nothing more evil than that in my opinion. That’s why like, I really don’t like all this crypto stuff. And uh, you know, I’m not saying I, I have a little bit of crypto. I’m not saying don’t have a little bit. You probably should. But just, there’s just so many scams out there. And this in this world, you know, I was a used car salesman. Now I signed the blaze. I’m gonna close down my car lot. I gotta tie up some loose ends.

Sevan Matossian (13:12):

You had, you had, you had your own lot.

Alex Stein (13:14):

I got, yeah, I got my dealer’s license. I have my own car lot. Yeah. I’m in the wholesale car business. And so that’s why, what I’m trying to say is I’ve just had every type of scam. I had guys come with me with where they bring a cashiers check and I call the bank and the cashiers check is good, but they have six copies of it. So they got six different guys trying to use that. Cashier’s check, you know, at the same place I’ve had every kind. I’ve had guys where they take the car for a test driving. They come back with it’s scratched and they still wanna buy it. Like they purposely scratched it. I mean, there’s all kinds of scams. My point being is in this, in this world, it’s not a happy go lucky world, sadly. It’s like, there’s just somebody out there looking to knock off your head and that’s the opposite we need to be. But because we’ve just been screwed over

Sevan Matossian (13:50):

So much. Don’t you think that thinking like that is what keeps that going?

Alex Stein (13:53):

What do you mean that people are gonna knock our heads off? I mean, I don’t know. I think you had to be cognizant because this is why it’s like in society. We’re so detached. Anybody. I do a lot of like, uh, soci sociological, like kind of stunt with my buddy Cassidy, Campbell. He has a big YouTube channel where like, we’ll ask somebody for a dollar and they say no, then we’ll have like a plant behind him. If they say yes, we give him like a fake $10,000 check. And what I’m, what I’m trying to say is people like just judge people. They don’t wanna actually help people out. Uh, because they’ve been so screwed. So you’re right. Like having that negative, like, you know, you’re kind of stuck in that negative feedback loop. Like it was this person scamming me, but at the same time, dude, there are people out there trying to scam you that will try to, you know, do whatever they can to make it. So it’s just, it’s not the world that we live in is not perfect. It’s not like a board game and it’s not monopoly. It’s real life. It’s pretty scary. Sometimes.

Sevan Matossian (14:39):

H how about when you just don’t care? If someone scams you

Alex Stein (14:42):

That’s the best way to be is to, I think, is to act like you don’t really care and to not care, to not sweat the small stuff. Well, you know, like I was talking to one of my good friends, she just got out of a relationship, a four year relationship and she’s so depressed and she’s a lot younger than me. She’s 25. I’m 35. I’m actually pretty old now that not old, but compared to her is what I’m trying to say. And so I’m trying to give her guidance. I’m like, I’ve had so many breakups where you’re so depressed. You’re so sad. And now I look back, you laugh, you just laugh. You know, I literally, I, I cringe. I’m like, oh my God, I can’t believe that girl even BU me. And it’s hard to, you know, explain to somebody like, I think their world’s ending.

Alex Stein (15:16):

And like you, I’m sure you’ve been through a breakup and you laugh about it a year later or years later. So it’s weird. It’s like, this’s is the saying, there’s a saying in Danville Z and said this on Joe Rogan’s podcast, but I steal it. I say it all the time. It’s a story. The proverb of the Chinese farmer. So what happened was the Chinese farmer. He had a horse and uh, the horse ran away and everybody in the village was like, oh, that’s so terrible. Your horse ran away. You know, that’s so bad. And he’s like, maybe then the next day his horse came back with seven other horses. And everybody in the town was like, oh, that’s so awesome. Now you got all these horses for farming. That’s so good. And the Chinese farmer’s like maybe, and then the next day his son is tending to the horses and the horse is trample his son’s leg.

Alex Stein (15:51):

And his son’s like temporarily paralyzed. Both of his legs are broken. And everybody’s like, oh, that’s so terrible. Your son’s legs are broken. And the Chinese farmer’s like, maybe then the next day, the draft service comes around and they see his sons all, you know, mangled, his legs are broken, so they don’t draft him into the war and everybody, and it town’s like, oh, that’s so awesome. Your son didn’t have to go die in the war. And he’s like, maybe. So my point being is, you don’t even know what a bad thing is until you get perspective. It actually might be the best thing ever in your life. So

Sevan Matossian (16:16):

Same with good. So many people think they’re doing good and they’re doing absolute harm.

Alex Stein (16:21):

Yeah. I agree with that too. Like, but what’s an example. Like what, what, what is an example of that in your opinion? Like somebody’s doing good and, and then like over working out, maybe in the exercise world or what

Sevan Matossian (16:32):

Sure. But I was thinking even more big pictures than that. It’s, it’s basically the whole, um, liberal ideology, the whole, whole liberal ideology is violent and discriminatory and racist for mandatory and racist. And, and, and I wanna, I wanna say something very interesting. Oh, well you talk with James Butler about systemic racism. Yeah. And there is systemic racism, but I would propose to you, you’re thinking about it all wrong.

Alex Stein (16:56):

Okay. Well tell me, cuz I do believe it. And people in the conservative world would be like, there’s no systemic racism. I’m like, dude, there is.

Sevan Matossian (17:01):

Yeah,

Alex Stein (17:01):

Of course there is.

Sevan Matossian (17:02):

There is. But, but here’s the thing it’s being ma here’s the part that’s so hard to get your head wrapped around. It’s being maintained by the people who believe in systemic racism. It’s being curated and breathe life into, into its existence. By the people who believe in systemic racism. They start to see racism everywhere. Yeah. The only way, the only way this goes away is with each individual, stop viewing the world through the racist lens. That doesn’t mean that you can’t be prejudice or discriminatory. You have to use prejudice and you have to use discrimination. You see someone speeding down the street, you have to, you see three guys walking towards you and they’re belligerent. You cross the street. But, but the second you say it’s because of color or those types of things, you’re enforcing it. But I’ll give you the, the gnarliest one. You ready for

Alex Stein (17:54):

This? I’m ready.

Sevan Matossian (17:57):

And I’ve said this on my show a dozen times. Imagine being born a black child. And on day one, when you come out of your mom’s vagina, waiting for you on planet earth is a word that the left re that not just the left, the left and the right requires you to be offended by your whole life. It’s waiting for you. Mm-hmm <affirmative> why do we allow that word to be,

Alex Stein (18:26):

I mean, in word, why is it? I don’t know.

Sevan Matossian (18:29):

That is the enforcer of systemic racism. The, those, those types it’s that deep naming is the origin of all particular things. When we allow, when we, when we, when, when people, when white people are keep just saying N word N word N word, and they don’t actually say the word they’re enforcing it. Yeah. When Joe Rogan says, sorry for what he said, do you know what he’s really saying? That’s systemic reason. He’s saying I’m enforcing all of you to remember that, that word oppresses you.

Alex Stein (18:57):

Yeah. I agree with that. That’s

Sevan Matossian (18:58):

The deep psychology behind it. And that’s why the left is so fucking dangerous because in the guise of being benign and good, they are telling the black man get in your fucking case. They’re the plantation owners. Yeah. They’re the psychological plant and it’s fucking, it’s fucking, it’s maddening. And, and you have people like LeBron enforcing that, enforcing it. And yet he broke out of it. You have Obama enforcing it. And yet he broke out. They should be telling everyone stop being a fucking victim. Yeah. But it doesn’t matter.

Alex Stein (19:30):

It’s the victim hood. And see, it’s funny cuz you bring that word as a white guy, like in my car lot. It’s only two black guys that work there. And when they call me the N-word, it’s like the badge of honor. I love it. I’m saying I love it when they call me. So it’s weird how it’s like, how we make it. You know, we give the words, it’s power. We’re the reason why it, it is a negative thing. But I think you make the best point though. It’s the victimhood mentality. And that’s like, everybody has a reason why they can be a victim. Like that’s why like the trans thing is a big deal. That’s why, you know, anybody, if they have a bad relationship with their parents, they feel like a victim. We need to actually take ownership of our life and stop being a victim.

Alex Stein (20:04):

Like you’re not promised to rose garden when you’re born, your life’s gonna be tough. It’s tough for everybody. And somehow we have to instill people not to be a victim, even though bad, crap’s gonna happen to you. Nobody’s gonna have a life or everything goes according to plan. But these people, they want to be able to use that victimhood as an excuse for their failure. So why they eat bad or why they don’t have a job or, you know what I mean? I think that’s, that’s the, it’s a crutch and I think society’s using it because even white people now, you know, they’re saying they’re a victim of, you know, uh, the, the, you know, what is it? The, uh, reverse racism, you know? And, and I would,

Sevan Matossian (20:38):

It’s just racism. Let’s just call it racism. I grew up in the bay area and the black people there are, are, are, uh, are first of all, I grew up in the bay area and never saw any white person be racist to a black person, but I’ve been racist, but black people have been racist towards me 10,000 fucking times. Mm-hmm <affirmative> like, have you ever had a black girlfriend and try to hang out? Like somewhere like where there’s all black people.

Alex Stein (20:58):

I’ve hung out in a lot of places where it’s all black guys and yeah, dude, there’s a video on my thing. And let me

Sevan Matossian (21:02):

Be one more, sorry, one more thing,

Alex Stein (21:04):

But let make this. Yeah, I’m saying I went to a barbecue as like an all black barbecue. And they’re like, who is this guy? I mean, some people were really cool. Nice. The majority of people were, but there’s a few people you would’ve thought they thought I was an FBI agent just for being there. You know what I mean? Just for being a white guy. Yeah,

Sevan Matossian (21:17):

Yeah, yeah. I’ve, I’ve, I’ve ridden my bike through Oakland a at least a dozen times where I was fucking chased for being, uh, police, police. But here’s the thing, even we are being, we are miscategorizing it, cuz it actually has nothing to do with being black because I’ve spent months and months in Africa and it’s not, it has nothing to do with black. It has to do with col um, I don’t know what you would call it black culture in America. But, but, but the black people in Africa, you can’t categorize them with the, that that’s like categorizing the Armenians in LA with the Armenians in Northern California. Yeah.

Alex Stein (21:47):

Dude, a black guy from Africa is way different than a black guy from Oakland. They’re

Sevan Matossian (21:51):

Yeah. That’s what I mean. That’s why you can’t even say it’s black, it’s a total fucking lie and mischaracterization. And that, those are the things that are keeping systemic racism alive by referring to them as black people. It’s just fucking nuts.

Alex Stein (22:02):

Yeah. It’s and

Sevan Matossian (22:04):

People can’t see that.

Alex Stein (22:05):

Yeah. But dude, people can’t see anything, dude. I mean people like, I, I, yeah,

Sevan Matossian (22:09):

Like I believe we went to the moon.

Alex Stein (22:11):

Yeah. Well that’s fine. But this is the

Sevan Matossian (22:13):

Dumb I

Alex Stein (22:13):

Am. No, but this is the, this is the thing. This is shows you society. And I might have said this last time in your show, I say this all the time, but a and w hamburgers, you know, they’re not just a root beer company. They used to sell hot dogs and hamburgers. And they were trying to compete with McDonald’s in the eighties and early nineties, they did a nationwide market research survey and they were trying to compete with McDonald’s quarter pounder, a one fourth. And what they did is they asked people what they thought was a better value. And this was, they did a nationwide. They asked people what was a better, better value is like 3 99 for a quarter pounder burger. Or like basically the same price, like 3 89 for a third pounder burger for one third, overwhelmingly people thought it was a better value to get the one fourth pound burger.

Alex Stein (22:49):

Because yeah, there’s, they’re gonna say that, you know, this is the word, but overwhelmingly people thought that the quarter pounder was more than the third pound burger and this is a, and W’s uh, our argument because it makes people look stupid. They tried to like, they came out with a thing trying to say why people got confused, but it basically comes down to this overwhelmingly. People don’t even know a simple math fraction. And that’s where we’re at. People are just not that smart and it’s, and it, people could figure it out if you gave ’em time. If they weren’t just, you know, in a rush, you know, answering some question, they probably very easily could figure out what’s more, what’s better value, but we’re constantly under what I call trauma based mind control. We’re constantly under this fight or flight response. They wanna keep us in this low vibrational energy state. So we’re stressed about our kids. We’re stressed about our job. We’re stressed about money. We’re stressed about being overweight. We’re stressed about what kind of car we drive so that we can’t even actually focus or take ownership or actually enjoy our short life that we’re here on this earth,

Sevan Matossian (23:41):

Short life. Hey, did you know Rosa parks? Wasn’t the one who sat in the back of the bus.

Alex Stein (23:44):

She was that she was an actress dude. They did that bit three or four times. You know that right, dude, that’s a race.

Sevan Matossian (23:50):

I just, someone just sent it to me. The other day was really a woman named Claudette Colvin.

Alex Stein (23:54):

I know. And then they redid it with her and then I think they had to do it with Rosa parks twice before she got arrested or something. So they did it. Yeah. Like she did it a couple times.

Sevan Matossian (24:01):

That’s fucking fascinating.

Alex Stein (24:02):

Yeah. That was a, that was dude. That’s the same social justice look at black lives matter. Dude. The one Patrice colors, she bought a house in a 98.7% white neighborhood, a 3 million house. And the other biggest race here was Chinese. It was 0.0, 1% black. This is black lives matter. They, I mean, dude, all come on. I mean talk about hypocrisy. She, with the money they got, they didn’t even buy a house in a black neighborhood.

Sevan Matossian (24:26):

How tall are you?

Alex Stein (24:28):

Six foot three.

Sevan Matossian (24:29):

And how much do you weigh?

Alex Stein (24:31):

I gotta get on a diet dude. I’m 241 pounds this morning, but listen, why I’ve gotten so fat. So I quit smoking weed. I don’t drink alcohol. And, and this is not, this is not, this is not an excuse. PLA dude I’ve ever, since I saw smoking, we I’ve just been eating like a fur. I mean I still, I go and exercise every day.

Sevan Matossian (24:49):

So this is what I’m gonna offer you. Please

Alex Stein (24:53):

Offer me something.

Sevan Matossian (24:55):

I’m gonna set you up with someone. Who’s gonna get you some blood work.

Alex Stein (24:58):

I need some blood work.

Sevan Matossian (24:59):

They’re gonna, they’re gonna taste. You know,

Alex Stein (25:01):

I don’t eat meat. You know, I don’t eat meat too. And last time I got my blood work, they said I’m a little anemic cuz I’m a vegetarian.

Sevan Matossian (25:07):

Oh no. Why are you vegetarian?

Alex Stein (25:08):

Just spiritual reasons. Cause I’m

Sevan Matossian (25:10):

Weird. Oh cuz you don’t think animals should die for your existence?

Alex Stein (25:13):

Yes. I’m an

Sevan Matossian (25:14):

Animal. Yeah. Mad props, Salam, Oleum. I, I uh, I think that’s, I think that’s great. I think that’s the only reason by the way. That’s really cool. Um, do you know the raw meat guy? The raw ed

Alex Stein (25:22):

Meat guy? Yeah. He’s nuts. That one guy. Well, there’s a couple of them, but the one guy that’s like has like 2 million followers or whatever. The guy that’s really super jacked.

Sevan Matossian (25:30):

No, not the liver king. Can you pull up the raw meat guy? Uh, Mr. Beaver. Uh, we had him on the show. We had both guys on the show. Are you impressed?

Alex Stein (25:37):

Yeah, of course. Yeah, but dude, you’re big dude. My buddy sent me a message the other day. He’s he’s been your biggest fan for forever. I didn’t realize that like in the fitness world or whatever world, I don’t know what you would call it. The health and wellness world, dude. You’re a big deal. I didn’t realize that.

Sevan Matossian (25:52):

Yeah. I’m the guy, uh, look at this fucking guy. That’s why I’m normal. I’m normal. I’m nothing like you. I’m normal. Just so

Alex Stein (26:01):

What you what’s he washing it down with, you see the, the people to slunk the eggs. Do you recommend that? Cuz like I don’t really eat eggs. <laugh> what is that stupid? I don’t know. Or is that

Sevan Matossian (26:09):

Smart? I just don’t like the word slunk him. That’s

Alex Stein (26:12):

What they call it. That’s what they call it. I thought, I think they call it S Splunking eggs.

Sevan Matossian (26:16):

Dr. Paul Saldino says you shouldn’t eat the whites. And he told me why and I forget, but I believe him.

Alex Stein (26:22):

See, you know, that’s another thing is I don’t like this chicken dude. They put so much crap. You know, the average size chicken in the eighties was like four pounds. Now the average size chicken’s 11 pounds. Cuz they give it, they, they pump it up with so many steroids and stuff.

Sevan Matossian (26:34):

This guy,

Alex Stein (26:35):

He’s a monster eating that raw chicken like that. This guy has a mental disease, dude.

Sevan Matossian (26:40):

Hey, so thi this guy’s really cool. Um, this, so how many followers does he have now? This guy built two meme accounts with like over 2 million. Wow. He’s doing good. He built two meme accounts with over 2 million followers, I think. Wow. Yeah. I love this guy and he was a great guest. He was a gentleman, so, okay, so, so you ready for this Alex? Yeah. Mm-hmm <affirmative> so I have this, um, uh, uh, I just thought of this just now, because they commented in the comments, California home hormones. I have this sponsor and they do blood work for people and then they give them advice on like what, what they need to do to, to help themselves. And one of the things that they’re big into is they check your testosterone levels. And if your testosterone levels are low, they put you on some sort of prescription for peptides.

Alex Stein (27:23):

Yeah. How does you have such a good hairline? Are you on testosterone, dude? You have such

Sevan Matossian (27:27):

Good hair. No, no dude.

Alex Stein (27:28):

How is your mine? I’m I’m mine starting to get like, I have a full head of hair, but mine, son to recede and I’m looking at your hairline. I’m like, wow, I want to get what you’re on. You got that great hair.

Sevan Matossian (27:39):

My sister, my sister just showed up in town today and she goes, man, you look really good. I’m like, oh man, people are gonna start thinking I’m I’m on testosterone place and I’m not, I am not. I am not. Um, I’m, I’m a, I’m I’m, I’m a fitness freak though. Like, like I work out a lot. Okay. So, um, not in my community, in my community. I’m just fats, slob. I don’t even work out that much.

Alex Stein (27:56):

So intense. Yeah.

Sevan Matossian (27:57):

Yeah. So intense.

Alex Stein (27:59):

Cause because you know, you get addicted to working out too, because it makes you feel so good after, you know, that’s kind of like a drug too. Yeah.

Sevan Matossian (28:04):

Even before we come on. So every podcast I do pretty much before the guest comes on an hour before I ride a bike, a bike, an assault bike for 10 minutes. Yeah. Even if I’ve already worked out twice, I pour, I’m pouring sweat and I jump in the shower. Then I put the goop in my hair and then I come in and I’m all wide-eyed

Alex Stein (28:20):

Yeah. I just walked my dogs and I sugar shower. That’s why I’m so kinda wet. I feel like now I’m starting to dry off, but uh,

Sevan Matossian (28:26):

You look

Alex Stein (28:26):

Good. No, but I’m saying you’re right. The exercise is for the mental health though is so important. That’s what, and I think we talked about that last time. Cause people don’t realize, they think, oh, well I just gotta work out. Cause I don’t wanna be fat, but it’s gonna take so long being fat, you know, is all about diet. I know that you’d know that too. I mean, that’s such a huge part. You can, you

Sevan Matossian (28:42):

Can’t 98%, 90%. You

Alex Stein (28:43):

Can’t outwork a terrible diet I guess to my point. But the mental, the mental health benefits. No, but dude, I wanna get, I need to go with California. Are they, did they have a place in Dallas? What do I, how do I need to get my blood tested? I need to do it like this week.

Sevan Matossian (28:57):

So here’s the thing you just, just for your own mental health or for, for some other reason. Well

Alex Stein (29:01):

Just cuz last time I got my blood tested last year. It’s it’s about been about a year and I mean my why? Well, I was a little slightly anemic and that’s because I’ve been vegetarian for now going on two years.

Sevan Matossian (29:12):

So what I would, so what I’d like to do is I’d like to have them do blood, work on you and then tell you what you need to do. And then if you decide to go with that, with that advice, taking the peptides, testosterone, replacement, whatever vitamins, B twelves, whatever they decide, then you come on the, I didn’t even think of this by the way, this isn’t the setup. I just thought of this. Like just now just seeing you. And then I saw her post in there. And then, and then, um, uh, and then basically you come on once a month and we talk about J and you, but

Alex Stein (29:40):

I will, dude, I gotta get back in shape. See, I, I was, I was totally two years ago. I was, you know, doing the yoga every day. I was kind of addicted to working out and I just let myself go, you know? Yes. They have a lab in Dallas. Holy shit. Okay. You’re Sarah. Okay. I’m gonna hook you up with Sarah, um, tomorrow. Okay. I’m gonna go, I’ll get it this way.
