Sevan Matossian (00:01):

Bam we’re live.

Caleb Beaver (00:03):

Oh shit.

Sevan Matossian (00:04):

I’m not, uh, I’m I’m, I’m just totally not a hundred percent, whatever that means. I just don’t feel normal

Caleb Beaver (00:15):

Brain filled like much, still

Sevan Matossian (00:17):

Not much, much is a little bit much, but, uh, I mean, I’ve been sleeping. I, I, I used to never, I mean, before I got before a couple weeks ago before I got sick, I never used to sleep more than like six, seven hours a day. And then it took like a 10 or 20 minute nap during, in the middle of the day. And uh, like now the last, I don’t know, last few nights whenever I’m. Yeah. I mean, even during the semifinals, I was sleeping like 10, 11, 12 hours. I never do that. I can’t even believe, ah, 12. I never slept 12, but 10 or 11 a few times.

Caleb Beaver (00:49):

Wow. I don’t think I’ve ever slept more than seven hours before.

Sevan Matossian (00:55):

Um, it’s been a while. Oh, the seven podcast is called out in the morning. Cha up article. What

Sevan Matossian (01:34):

Hey, have you all, have you always lived in Virginia that like as long as I’ve known you?

Caleb Beaver (01:38):


Sevan Matossian (01:39):

But for some reason I just can’t figure it out.

Caleb Beaver (01:41):

You, I think you get you, you get will. And I mixed up sometimes.

Sevan Matossian (01:45):


Caleb Beaver (01:47):

But he’s all over the place.

Sevan Matossian (02:20):

Wow. Okay.

Caleb Beaver (02:22):

I really like it.

Sevan Matossian (02:23):

Okay. I’ll definitely have to check it out. Oh, what’s the show about today? Tomorrow morning, I’m having Hiller on, I was gonna have him on tonight, but he had like a softball game or he had something to do and he couldn’t come on. And then he called back and said like, he, his shit got rained out. Whatever the sporty plays is. And then by then I was like, I wasn’t really ready to do him. So he’ll be here tomorrow at 7:00 AM. I’m excited. I gotta hold of of notes. It’ll be fun. I’m gonna poke fun at him for a bunch of the stuff he’s put in his videos. Um, man, he just made a master’s one. That was 28 minutes long. Holy cow. That’s too long.

Caleb Beaver (03:00):

I know you can talk about master athletes for 30 minutes.

Sevan Matossian (03:02):

You can’t two of them. Two of them died during the show. <laugh> that’s how long the show is. Ah, yes. Ah, yes. Off to a good start. Jamal. What’s up brother?

Speaker 3 (03:16):

What’s up? How you doing?

Sevan Matossian (03:17):

I’m great.

Speaker 3 (03:19):

Mr. Beaver, are you doing all right,

Caleb Beaver (03:20):

So good. How are you?

Speaker 3 (03:23):

I’m doing good. So Levon. Yes. What I was thinking about the other day, I forgot what podcast you were talking about. But uh, I was comparing Justin Koler and Matt Fraser in my head. And uh, I was thinking about how Matt Fraser to Meow Bryant is almost like, uh, Nick Saban. Like all his players have like everything they need. He knows exactly what they need to like win, win the college championship. But then you have a coach like Justin Cotler, where he’s like that elementary coach where automatically you have a kid say you have a kid that’s late. His parents are coming home late or whatever. Justin Koler is the coach that take you home. Like stop somewhere to get you something to eat. Like he just shows how much he cares in a different way.

Sevan Matossian (04:13):

Oh yeah. And I feel like that’s I said, who is the guy? You referenced some college coach. Nick who? What? Huh?

Speaker 3 (04:19):


Sevan Matossian (04:19):

Shaman. Oh, I don’t even know who that is.

Caleb Beaver (04:21):

Alabama football

Sevan Matossian (04:21):

Coach. Nope. Never heard of him. Sorry.

Speaker 3 (04:25):

It’s all. All

Sevan Matossian (04:26):

Right. Oh good con good conversation. Nice talking to you.

Speaker 3 (04:30):

Oh yeah, no problem.

Sevan Matossian (04:32):

You’re a good dude. I love you. Don’t don’t ever call my football football stories again. <laugh>

Speaker 3 (04:37):

All right. Well, all right. Just one last. Oh, okay. Oh, one last thing

Sevan Matossian (04:40):


Speaker 3 (04:42):

<laugh> uh, Daniel. Brandon is the Allen Iverson of, uh, crosses.

Sevan Matossian (04:47):

Oh, oh, okay. Okay. Now you’re talking. I know a little bit of basketball. Okay. I feel you. Okay.

Speaker 3 (04:52):

All right. That’s it.

Sevan Matossian (04:53):

Okay. That’s good. Good, good redemption. Last minute. Redemption. Uh, Dave Castro is coming back to cross dude. That’s two weeks old. I told you that two weeks ago, two weeks

Caleb Beaver (05:03):

Ago. And you see, they referenced our, uh,

Sevan Matossian (05:06):

Oh, Northside champs that he just came from the, like the other side of the galaxy and just realized it. Yeah. I live under that’s lot,

Caleb Beaver (05:14):

Lot takes for travel to

Sevan Matossian (05:15):

New. I live under rock because I don’t know about Alabama’s coach. Am I? I’m not doing football. Okay. Um, where was I? Um, oh, I Alex Stein next week too. Uh, he started, uh, the whole California. Uh, uh, oh, you did hormones protocol. Yep. I think Gary Roberts has started. I think Paul, uh, this guy Paul who’s we’re supposed to have had on like three times and keeps canceling. He started, uh, we got two ladies who, um, have started their blood work. I’m excited to tell those stories. If you want, you can go to C a hormones.com sign for a free blood work. Doctor’s consultation. Use the password seven and the ball will start rolling. Oh, should I read it? Should I read the quote? It’s been a while.

Caleb Beaver (06:10):

Do it.

Sevan Matossian (06:11):

When your parents are alive, you might wish they behave different. When they’re dead, you will wish you behave different. Pretend your parents are dead. Now, listen, don’t get in my DMS and shouldn’t be like, what was that? Quote, blah, blah, blah. No, just rewind the show and listen to it. Uh, who’s the Tony Hawk of CrossFit.

Caleb Beaver (06:34):

Rich. How about,

Sevan Matossian (06:35):

How about, how about calling someone in one of those videos that said Annie Thor’s daughter was the Michael Jordan of CrossFit. And then we, I think you titled our video that I had to change that that was blasphemous

Caleb Beaver (06:47):

Will said the same thing.

Sevan Matossian (06:50):


Caleb Beaver (06:50):

Yeah, he did not. He did not like that. I said that. Yeah.

Sevan Matossian (06:53):

Yeah. That, that

Caleb Beaver (06:54):

To make it better. I did put a question mark after it, just to be like, Hey,

Sevan Matossian (06:58):

But you took it from someone else, right? It was,

Caleb Beaver (07:01):

I think I took it from Brian.

Sevan Matossian (07:03):

Yeah. It was in a video somewhere. And it’s just like crazy.

Caleb Beaver (07:06):

A little blast. I agree.

Sevan Matossian (07:08):

Yeah. It’s a little though.

Caleb Beaver (07:09):

She’s great.

Sevan Matossian (07:10):

I don’t know if we have a Michael Jordan.

Caleb Beaver (07:12):

Not yet.

Sevan Matossian (07:15):

I mean, if we did, I would. Oh, hello, Ms. Cox. Hi. Nice to see you. Thank you.

Caleb Beaver (07:21):

What a woman.

Sevan Matossian (07:22):

I know the show’s off to a great start. Dang, Sarah.

Sevan Matossian (07:29):

Dang. If, if, if you talk shit about me, for example, or if you do something I don’t like, or you do something that’s aggressive or, or whatever. And, and I have to, um, uh, smack you around on my show a little bit, and then you wanna come on my show and use my platform to save face for you, Uhuh. It doesn’t work that way, just so you know, if you come hard at me, if you do anything that’s mean to me. And then I, and I defend myself on my show and then you get your feelings hurt. I’m not letting you come on my show and then to say, to save face. Does that make sense? Does it, you know what I’m like, like I wish I could give you. I wish I could give you an objective example. Um, just if you were to say, if you were to, I mean, this is, this is totally fabricated, but, but ju just those guys, those guys over talking, eat fitness, we had our little beef with them. And then let’s say for some reason they wanted to come on the show and talk, which they don’t, they haven’t said that at all. I’m just making this up. I, I’m not interested in, um, having them on my show to talk about it and have them say face that I I’m, I’m not used to go say face on the platform. You started talking shit on me about that’s it.

Caleb Beaver (08:38):

Would you prefer them like approach you in person and talk about it?

Sevan Matossian (08:42):

That part doesn’t matter that I don’t mind. I don’t mind that either way, but I’m not interested. There’s something becomes disingenuous. If you wanna come on my platform after you got fucked up after you hit me, you know what I mean? Like, like you punch my window and break your hand and now you wanna come to my house and have me bandage you up. I don’t think so. Go over, go somewhere else and get bandaged up.

Caleb Beaver (09:02):

Wasting supplies.

Sevan Matossian (09:04):

Yeah. It’s not

Caleb Beaver (09:06):


Sevan Matossian (09:06):

Window. Yeah. I I’m not, uh, I’m I’m I’m I’m not opposed to being friends with everyone and loving on everyone and doing everything good. No, no, no, not Katherine. Katherine can, I would, I’d do that just for ratings. I’d do that for ratings, but I got wound up again. I thought like when, um, I had, uh, Aon things were like settling a little bit and then Hiller made that video and it just showed just how fucking despicable, what she

Caleb Beaver (09:35):

Was that

Sevan Matossian (09:36):

He made a video showing the actual interview I did with Stacy Tova where Stacy Tova says that, Hey, if you were on this kind of birth control and you’re a woman, if you get off of it, your performance will be better. And that’s what I got in trouble for.

Caleb Beaver (10:00):

I remember having conversa, we, I mean, obviously I work, I work in a hospital, so like I, I had these close kind of conversations regularly. And when we, you had the conversation with Annie, I was like, this is exactly the same as conversation I have with people at work.

Sevan Matossian (10:13):

You mean just about, uh, just, uh, uh, birth control and, and

Caleb Beaver (10:16):

Menstrual cycles, birth control, like women’s health stuff. Like it’s normal. Yeah. Like, and it, it, yeah. And then I was, uh, talking to my wife about it and she goes, yeah, this, that, the interview sounds exactly like the interview you did with Stacy. It’s almost identical.

Sevan Matossian (10:31):

Yeah. Except Stacy’s we got some really good. That was some valuable information she gave.

Caleb Beaver (10:35):

Oh, certainly. Yeah.

Sevan Matossian (10:36):

Crazy. Valuable. Not, not that Annie didn’t give valuable information, but, but no, but, uh, I have a friend, an acquaintance, a loved one who lived in a city and this city is terrified. The people there in general were terrified of getting COVID. The lockdowns, there were real, like people actually listened to them. And this friend of mine was terrified and they had two kids. So they took their two kids and the husband and wife, and as a family moon unit, they moved a thousand miles away

Sevan Matossian (11:13):

To a small, uh, 800 miles away to a small quaint city that they thought would be safer where COVID couldn’t come. And they bought a home there and they started their life there. They got the vaccines, they got double boosted. They got triple boosted. They got their kids vaccinated. They wore masks. They wore more masks. They wouldn’t see us. If we saw them inside, they only saw us outside. They wanted us to get masks. They wanted us to get tested. They quarantined, they zoomed, they kept their kids isolated for two years. They drove by the grandparents house and waved the car. Cuz they didn’t wanna kill the grandparents. Get this week I found out they all have COVID the entire family.

Caleb Beaver (12:01):


Sevan Matossian (12:03):

I’m just like

Caleb Beaver (12:06):

You could do. You could take all the precautions you want still gonna get it. Probably.

Sevan Matossian (12:11):

How did, how do people, how are they processing that? How are people processing that

Caleb Beaver (12:16):

I have no idea. I, I had this exact same thing happened at work. Everybody got vaccinated. Everybody is like, they were super like wearing masks in 90 fives at work around their family. Like all that shit. And then like within the span of probably six months, all of us ended up getting it.

Sevan Matossian (12:32):

How about how, how do they justify? So, uh, the two do, do they say that we would do they say that they, we would be sicker. They would be sicker if they wouldn’t have got to that. Is that okay? So that’s,

Caleb Beaver (12:42):

That’s the, that’s the argument, the

Sevan Matossian (12:43):

Argument. So they tell themselves that

Caleb Beaver (12:45):

Yeah, the justification every time is like, well, it could have been worse.

Sevan Matossian (12:48):

Is there truth in that? Is there any truth in that? Or we don’t know. I’ve

Caleb Beaver (12:51):

Um, I’d have to look a little deeper into it, but I’ve, I’ve been talking to a doctor, friend of mine and that’s, that’s essentially the reasoning behind getting vaccinated is that you’re, you’re mitigating the severity of the, of the, the symptoms you would get from COVID itself. But then my argument in return to that is like, well, a lot of these people are so far on the sickness side of the sickness, wellness spectrum that, well, it’s like putting a bandaid on an open fracture. And I just, I have a tough time agreeing with like, oh, everybody needs to get it. Just because these people who have these severe,

Sevan Matossian (13:27):

Well, that part still doesn’t make sense. That that part still doesn’t make sense that everyone needs to get a, that part still doesn’t make sense.

Caleb Beaver (13:34):


Sevan Matossian (13:34):

So I just, okay, so that we’ll give ’em the benefit of the doubt, I guess, and say that maybe it reduces their symptoms, man. Maybe it’s, it’s so weird that vaccines are supposed to prevent something. And now with this one, it just reduces the symptoms, but okay, I’ll go with it. And, and then the other excuse, I think that they say is, is that we didn’t know, we didn’t know. We were just doing what’s right. You’re an asshole. And so no, we did know, we did know the science did know John, I Natis at Stanford did know

Caleb Beaver (14:06):

That voice just got shoved to the side.

Sevan Matossian (14:08):

Yeah. The scientist knew,

Sevan Matossian (14:15):

Uh, Seon. Can you please address the rumors about TDC? What rumors? Oh, I, I haven’t uh, will you pull that? Will you go to morning? Um, chalk up, will you go to the CrossFit? Um, newsletter, the proxy CrossFit newsletter the letter by proxy, the, the organization by proxy. I don’t even know what proxy means. I should stop saying that. What do you think about monkey box? I don’t know anything about monkey box, except that it has the word monkey in it. Okay. Scroll down. I don’t know who Joe getaway, let me see. I dunno who Joe gin is? OI. Sounds like a native American name. Peace. My tribal tribal elder and Justin LA Franco. I know who that is. They wrote this on June 8th. It’s June 8th. It said, uh, on today. There’s Dave Castro. Um, scroll down a little bit. Oh, this is, that looks like me.

Sevan Matossian (15:05):

He’s talking to scroll who’s that? No, I don’t wear my sunglasses like that. That’s the other day at Diablo CrossFit. So it just looks like he’s at Diablo cross. I mean, I announced he’s coming back two weeks ago. That’s all I know. Let, let me see a little bit. What did they say Dave Castro was returning across with HQ five months after being fired from his position as general manager of sport. Uh, they confirmed it through two sources to attended affiliate gathering and affiliate gathering with Castro on Monday with approximately two dozen attendees. Uh, the news comes after several weeks speculations running cast and was first made public. Okay. Fair. Fair enough. Yeah, I, I, I, I don’t know. I don’t know. I don’t know. I don’t know. I, I, I just assumed that. I mean, that’s what he does. He’s always been going to the affiliates.

Sevan Matossian (15:47):

I don’t, I don’t, this is, I mean, two weeks ago he was with affiliates in Palo Alto. He posted a picture. And then before that, I think he was with some affiliates in Boulder and before that at Colorado. And, and before that, I think he did a shooting competition in Georgia. I think during that whole five months he was with affiliates. I think we’re just getting excited. Um, maybe, maybe he, maybe Dave told some people there. He is coming back. I don’t know. I, I know that affiliates are being told that at the semifinals or they were told that. Um, so, uh, I don’t know. Uh, but I, but I presume he’s coming back. I just don’t know what they’re waiting for for the, for the announcement. I don’t I’ve I’ve and I could speculate, but I have no idea and, and it’s not good speculation.

Sevan Matossian (16:30):

It’s just stupid shit. What do I think about January 6th? I don’t know a lot about January 6th, but what I do know is that it wasn’t, uh, whatever they say it was. I know that it was, there was no attack on the capital building. How do I know that? Because everything is relative in life. And I watched what happened in Ferguson and it was 760 million worth of damage in starting fires and burning police stations down with police inside. I know that they took over police stations in city blocks for fucking over a month. Like in Seattle. I know what that looks like. That’s a full on attack, watching dudes walk in and hanging out with the security and no fire. And that the president, the former president, before I read through the transcripts, I went to all the liberal media outlets. I went to abc.com and I got their transcripts.

Sevan Matossian (17:14):

And Trump says, Trump says to March peacefully. And I just know that $30 million worth of damage on a capital building is not, um, an insurrection. It’s just that it’s, that’s just fucking crazy talk. And do I think that maybe the FBI and there were people there and people like trying to stir the pot? Yeah. All that shit. Sure. But, but that was just a fucking protest of a bunch of people now. Here’s what I, yeah. It was a guy that tore the capital. Yeah. But here’s what I do think. And you guys, aren’t gonna like this. I think that if you throw a malt off cocktail at a fucking police department, the police department should open fire on you.

Caleb Beaver (17:48):

Self defense.

Sevan Matossian (17:50):

I don’t think that any of our public servants should be put in harm’s way. I think if you storm the fucking capital and fucking AO season there, they fucking put you down like a fucking dog. I do not think you can storm the CA I don’t think you, I think if you fucking Twitch too fast at the white house, there should be a sign. You can take a tour, the white house, twitchy people shouldn’t do it. I think if you Twitch near the president within a mile of them, they fucking behead you.

Sevan Matossian (18:18):

I think our public servants deserve the utmost in fucking defense and respect, including our police, the utmost. I don’t think you get to fucking walk up. I don’t think you get to push the gates or break the windows and go into the capital building. I don’t, I think you get shot. I think you should be shot. Especially if there’s senators in there. I just, I go fucking burn down at school or something. Go, go start a park on fire, go protest somewhere else, stay away, get, get 30 times the amount of protestors and surround the building and lay down. You do not get to fucking storm the building. You cannot, but you also can’t call it an insurrection when it’s fucking, this looks like the fucking Muppets are in there and they’re just sitting around and they’re FaceTiming their mom. And they’re sitting, they’re talking to the cops. I mean, it’s embarrassing.

Caleb Beaver (19:09):

It look like furries.

Sevan Matossian (19:10):

It’s embarrassing. So I, I, that’s how I feel about it. I just, just, uh, I don’t wanna use that term here. It comes though. Common sense. It’s just common sense. Tie yourself to the net at a tennis tournament. Yeah. Yes, exactly. Or, or, you know, have a million if you’re pissed off and you wanna make a statement, have 500,000 people get around the capital and lay down and don’t let anyone in for fucking 48 hours. The whole world would look cool. But the fact that they didn’t even start a fire there. Good sense. And sound judgment. Practical manners. Yeah. I mean, what we saw the, the BLM shit is a full blown insurrection attempt to take over the fucking United States government. That’s what that is. That fucking whole thing is fucking crazy and how it’s funded and who it’s funded by and the people and the brainwashing. And so, but, but I, but I don’t, but I don’t excuse anyone hurting, even Biden or AOC or any? No, I don’t. I don’t, I don’t think, I don’t think they should even be in a situation to be threatened when, when that fucking neighbor of ran, Paul’s fucking punched him out in his front yard. That dude should have been fucking brought to fucking the white house and putting one of those things where you put your hands and your head in it. And they should’ve let little kids throw fucking tomatoes at ’em

Caleb Beaver (20:33):

With stock. A’s

Sevan Matossian (20:34):

What? Oh, is that what? That is a stock? A

Caleb Beaver (20:36):

I think so.

Sevan Matossian (20:40):

Um, will you pull up this, uh, epic times article? This is tripping me out. I think it’s, uh, I think it’s good news. I, I, I hope it’s true. Uh, it looks like, it looks like maybe, um,

Sevan Matossian (20:56):

It looks like maybe California’s waking up San Francisco, San Francisco voters house, progressive sorrows back district attorney in recall election. Keep going, please. I, unlike California, governor Gavin, Newsome’s recent recall election Bo Dean didn’t face any opponents on June 7th, San Francisco voters were simply asked to answer yes or no to the question. Shall Chesa Bo Dean be recalled removed from the office of district attorney with more than 61.3% of the voters selecting? Yes. San Francisco mayor London breed must now appoint an interim district attorney until November 8th. When a permanent replacement will be elected Bina, former public defender backed by left wing, billionaire George Soros. I don’t know if that’s true. Came under fire for failed progressive criminal justice reform policies that have led to a sharp increase in drug overdoses, deaths, homeless and thefts, including smashing grab robberies, car burglaries, shoplifting, another property crimes. The, the apple store in Berkeley by my house. It was like, it was robbed like, I don’t know, 12 times in three months. And finally the police department just set up an outdoor police department like in front of it. Hey, I mean, it stopped it

Caleb Beaver (22:09):

Pretty bad. That’s so, you know, it’s bad when they have to park themselves

Sevan Matossian (22:12):

There, here’s the part, here’s the part that’s really hard for people to get their head or wrapped around. But, but here it is. The most valuable thing you have in your life is your time.

Sevan Matossian (22:31):

And what that does is that makes money tantamount to human energy, money equals human energy. I give someone $50. They come and work in my backyard for two hours. I’m using their human energy. I’m using their time. When people steal, they’re stealing your life, they’re stealing your human energy. They’re stealing your time. So those people go in, they grab, they smash and grab a Walgreens and everything in the store now goes up one penny to pay for that. We all pay for that. Those people took our time, our money, that dumb shit. When they say that they’re going to make something free city college free. It’s not free. Someone else pays for it with their human time. It’s your, it’s your time? It’s your life they’re spending. Would you rather Elon Musk hold the pile of human energy and let him spend it on building rockets, electric cars, all these things that create shit tons of jobs, or would you rather give it to Nancy Pelosi? Do you wanna give your human energy to those people who sit in that, in that public office and just push papers around? I’m gonna say I would, I, I wanna give it to, I would rather give it to, uh, to an innovator, an inventor, someone who’s creating jobs.

Sevan Matossian (24:20):

It’s not, it’s nuts that people don’t see that it’s not. Uh, Sam, did you get your, um, Sam’s the guy who wore the, uh, semi on podcast shirt at the semifinals. Speaking of free. Did you get your free coffee?

Caleb Beaver (24:32):


Sevan Matossian (24:34):

I hope you did.

Caleb Beaver (24:37):

I just got a shitload the other day.

Sevan Matossian (24:39):

Oh, that’s good. That makes me happy.

Caleb Beaver (24:41):

Fine. It’s stoked.

Sevan Matossian (24:43):

Um, what is this thing? Gun is this, oh yeah, we already did that one. Okay, fine. Um, Sean, G new day. Check it out. Oh. Oh, one more thing. Oh, SU’s here. Shit. Oh, this is perfect. Oh my goodness. Hi Matt. Hey,

Mattew Ouza (25:02):

What’s up guys? What’s up Caleb.

Caleb Beaver (25:03):

The usual. This is, uh, I, I got this DM the other day. Thank you, Sarah. Here we go. From a CrossFit affiliate. Hey Seon. I’m an affiliate owner in Alabama and this amazing experience happened yesterday. I thought I’d share it with the CEO who cares the power of a CrossFit affiliate yesterday around two o’clock a man walked through the door and asked if he could work out with us. I told him we didn’t have another class until four 30 and he was more than welcome to come back and try it out. He’s never done CrossFit before and doesn’t even currently work out. We talked a little longer and he began telling me how he was a little depressed and just felt like he needed to work out to get some steam off. At this point, I could tell that he really just needed someone to talk to.

Sevan Matossian (26:14):

And I felt that if he left, he wouldn’t come back. So I invited him to work out with me. I had snatches, deadlifts and accessory work to get done, and he hopped right in the whole time we just talked. He told me about some troubles. He was having at home where he worked and about his daughter and a little bit about his past two people, two completely different backgrounds. And none of that mattered. We worked together and sweated weed. The whole session took us a little over an hour to get done at the end. He told me, thank you because if he didn’t stop here, he might have ended his life this afternoon. This shook me to my core. We cannot get caught up in the workout and the scores we have to constantly remind ourselves of the bigger picture.

Sevan Matossian (27:08):

Dang. That’s a great story. Isn’t it?

Mattew Ouza (27:10):

Yeah. That’s crazy. That’s

Caleb Beaver (27:11):

Incredible. Oh,

Caleb Beaver (27:12):

I was wondering what happened. What? Like goes through people’s minds, like the day prior to them, like committing suicide. Like if somebody were like, something like that could have completely changed their changed their mind entirely like it. I don’t know. That’s the psychology of it is just bizarre. Very similar to like what Khan was talking about. Or he is just like, he wasn’t thinking he was just on autopilot. Like if this guy wouldn’t have pulled that, that man out of autopilot, he would’ve just continued.

Sevan Matossian (27:40):

Oh, oh yes. I hear you. Interesting. Yep.

Caleb Beaver (27:44):

I hear you.

Mattew Ouza (27:46):

Hey, you read name Malcolm Gladwell books. Fake story.

Caleb Beaver (27:53):

Not fake.

Caleb Beaver (27:54):

It’s like one of those Reddit stories. Somebody just wrote it.

Mattew Ouza (27:55):

You’re fun at parties. Just like called it out.

Sevan Matossian (28:02):

Okay. Check that one off the list.

Caleb Beaver (28:05):

Is that like, um, outliers? Is that what you’re talking about? Susa?

Mattew Ouza (28:08):

Yeah. He’s, he’s written a bunch of weird, like, like things about things about that. And one of ’em was on suicide and like the different, like how it was popular in pockets and places. It was really, it was really

Caleb Beaver (28:19):

Weird. Which one is that? I haven’t even read that one yet.

Mattew Ouza (28:21):

I can’t remember off I’ll stop my head. Sorry. That was a buildup for nothing there. Sorry.

If you’re, uh, anyone who wants anyone who wants to know about, uh, cancer and metabolic disease and wants a book that’s totally palatable. It’s called tripping over the truth by Travis Christofferson, tripping over the truth by Travis Christofferson and, um, even a knucklehead like me reads it and understands it. And, uh, it’s a fascinating read and, and you can even listen to it, you know, you know, basically talk, talk to you about how they’ve basically barked up the wrong tree, looking for the cure for cancer. I mean, now a lot of people know that. Thank you, MW. Super cool. Thank you. Nice hair. Uh, where I wanted to show. Oh, 1 56, honey. Nut Cheerio, honey, nut. I that Cheerio
