#766 – Good Morning with Sevan | Live Call In Show

Sevan Matossian (00:00):

To me, bam. We’re live. Uh, both Hillary and Suza have have just thrown out the idea of like, Hey, maybe it’s too many shows. Maybe people can’t keep up. And I, and so we’ve been kind of like, I think we all agree that if I were to take clips from the shows and make shorter clips, I would engage a different group of people who, who only wanna watch eight minute clips. But anyway, different story. Um, but both Hillary and Suza thought that maybe I’m doing too many shows and people feel bad cuz they can’t keep up.

Caleb Beaver (00:29):

Mm-hmm. <affirmative>.

Sevan Matossian (00:30):

But I don’t know. I didn’t like that. Anyway, so yesterday I talked about it on the show and I, I can’t imagine that being true. I mean, I can imagine that being true, but I can, I’m guessing the majority of people who wanna listen to the show every morning want a new show every morning.

Caleb Beaver (00:44):


Sevan Matossian (00:44):

But that being said, um, I asked yesterday, Hey, uh, does anyone want me to do less shows? And the comments are kind of u are unanimous. Hey, keep going. But I, but I didn’t know how to, um, I didn’t know how to make a, uh,

Caleb Beaver (01:02):

A poll out of it.

Sevan Matossian (01:03):

A poll out of it. Yeah. So I basically had to depend on the comments.

Caleb Beaver (01:07):

You want me to try it again?

Sevan Matossian (01:09):

Or do you Oh, sure, sure. Yeah, yeah, yeah. I, I have no idea. I went over and tried to make a poll. Oh, you’re gonna like this how we start this morning show. Um, uh, uh, the Moral Spiegel se you have friend, a friend in Jesus. Oh, maybe that’s why Danny Spiegel thinks we talk about her so much. Cause we have a character in the audience named Spiegel, and she has it all confused. Uh, do you bro, do you, oh, wait, what’s he talk, what’s Chase talking about? Do you uh,

Caleb Beaver (01:41):

I think just do like, just keep doing the daily show. I think that’s what he means.

Sevan Matossian (01:44):

Oh, in regards to that? Yeah. Yeah, yeah. Yeah. I, I, I get so excited when I wake up. I brought my carrot with me


And the comments. Uh, I had a carrot in yesterday’s show with Brian, and someone in the comments wrote, I, Aiden. I ate a carrot after that. And that was my whole point. If one person could eat a carrot after the show, uh, Adam Blakesley starting the morning with, uh, some passion, who the fuck said Les shows? I’ll choke a motherfucker out. Right. It’s, uh, that’s what I like to see. Passion. Yes. It was me. It was me. It was me. Now notice how I, I, I used, I have a vegetable brush. I don’t know what it’s made of, but it’s basically just looks like a, looks like a brush. And I, and I put this under the water and I rub all the dirt out of the crevices. When I was a kid, I used to peel carrots. Now I’m old and I use a vegetable brush. And, uh, but watch, see how when I shake this, this carrot, it’s like pretty rigid.

Caleb Beaver (02:44):


Sevan Matossian (02:46):

Now watch. By the end of this show, this thing will be, this thing. Can’t stay hard. The whole show. It’s a trip.

Caleb Beaver (02:52):

It’ll be a little limp on the end.

Sevan Matossian (02:53):

Yeah. Uh, savon, can you eat a whole carrot, but a whole apple? I, uh, easy, easy. There’s just some giant a ah, damnit. Uh, is that carrot a uh, is that carrot a Steven Segal thing? No, I don’t. Does he eat carrots? What’s longer? The carrot or SevOne? So you put up a pole?

Caleb Beaver (03:16):

Yeah, I did.

Sevan Matossian (03:17):

Okay. You’re gonna, uh, can you play, uh, clip, uh, 3 45 for the morning?

Denzel (03:26):

Let’s see.

Sevan Matossian (03:28):

I did 300 air squats yesterday. In the middle of the day, uh, no, actually around noon to kind of prepare for my podcast with Brian. Mm-hmm. <affirmative>, just to kind of wake me up. My legs are pretty sore. And then last night I did a hundred burpees and a hundred deadlift at 1 35.

Caleb Beaver (03:43):


Sevan Matossian (03:43):

Wow. I was quite ambitious yesterday.

Caleb Beaver (03:46):

<laugh> fill in the volume, huh?

Sevan Matossian (03:48):

Okay. So, uh, why? I have no idea why this is so powerful, uh, for me. I don’t even believe in God, but fuck, I like this clip. So here we go.

Denzel (03:57):

Put God first, put God first. In everything you do, everything that you think you see in me, everything that I’ve accomplished, everything that you think I have, everything that I have is by the grace of God, understand that it’s a gift. She said, somebody gimme a pen. Gimme a pencil. I have a prophecy. She said, boy, you are gonna travel the world and speak to millions of people. The most important thing is that what she taught me and what she told me, that day has stayed with me since I’ve been protected. I’ve been directed. I’ve been corrected. I’ve kept God in my life and has kept me humble. I didn’t always stick with him, but he always stuck with me. So stick with him in everything you do. If you think you wanna do what you think I’ve done, then do what I’ve done and stick with God. Number one, put,

Sevan Matossian (04:58):

Oh man. This carrot is cold too. I just realized yesterday my fingers were cold for a lot of the day. It was a trip. And I wonder if it’s cuz I was holding a cold carrot for an hour. Uh, Denzel could be talking about jam and it would be inspiring.

Caleb Beaver (05:14):

Yeah. Right. Doja on me. Then.

Sevan Matossian (05:16):

Uh, Jesus is in the house. That is, uh, I think that’s God’s like only son or something like that. <laugh>. What the fuck is this thumbnail? I don’t know. I’m an artiste. I’m an artiste. Okay. Uh, I don’t know what today’s topic is.

Caleb Beaver (05:34):

I always find these videos like this very interesting where people are talking about how, uh, God has done everything for them. Yeah. Like everything that they’ve received is because of God. Yeah. Or like, because of some higher being. Yeah. Cause I never understand. Because then you have like the whole, you have people who are discussed like, oh, I received everything because of my own personal choices, like my own Right. Actions and all those things. So I never under I I

Sevan Matossian (06:02):

No one’s coming to help you. Yeah. No one’s coming to help you.

Caleb Beaver (06:05):

It’s, it’s up. Yeah, exactly.

Sevan Matossian (06:08):

So you gotta figure out how,

Caleb Beaver (06:09):

How can you believe that something is, you are, you’re receiving things because of somebody else’s actions

Sevan Matossian (06:17):

You gotta bring. How do you bring both of those, um, what’s that called when you have two like opposing thoughts,

Caleb Beaver (06:22):


Sevan Matossian (06:23):

Uh, or, um, Roe Reconcile. How do you reconcile the fact that, uh, you’re a vegan, but you just love wearing leather chaps? Like, like shit like that? How do you reconcile the fact that hey, everything’s on you. Yeah. But yet everything, but give all the glory to God right here. I think that there’s like some just like enormous power in being selfless. Like, and

Caleb Beaver (06:48):

Like what do you mean by like, like enormous power to like, be able to do

Sevan Matossian (06:53):

Well? Well, like, like we see why all the athletes do the God thing, right? Because they invest so much. They have this thing where they invest so much into, like, into their identity, into being, um, uh, an athlete. And their success is where they fall in the podium that they fucking need a parachute or a release valve in case they don’t make it, oh, it was God’s choice. It it was meant to be this way. Or else they’re complete failures and they have to go out and kill themselves.

Caleb Beaver (07:20):


Sevan Matossian (07:21):

I mean, that’s the way kind of I see it.

Caleb Beaver (07:22):

Yeah. That’s like, you’re, you’re almost giving, you’re almost giving up your own power to some just because you like can’t take the the, the stress of failure in your own capacity.

Sevan Matossian (07:37):

Yeah. Or I don’t think, I think other people, but, but I also think that, uh, in like, in humility and selflessness, there’s just endless energy. And so that’s kind of a, a, a portal to that, a belief in God. But like, like, yeah, you, I mean, like, almost everything we do is selfish, right? I feel bad. I feel this, that person was mean to me. It’s just all indulgence shit. And so, like, I rather,

Caleb Beaver (08:01):

Most people do things strictly for their own good.

Sevan Matossian (08:06):

So if you just blame it all on God, or give God all the credit, however you wanna word it, then you’re kind of free from, uh, dealing with Chevon or Caleb. And then, and then you get so much more energy. Uh, your actions can be in a godly way. For instance, keeping a clean gym is godly. A clean gym is a gym that will, uh, be used using your gym leads to fitness fit and health is healthy, is godly. Uh, what motivation is there to be selfless? If you don’t believe there’s a right or wrong. If you say it’s because ultimately it’s better for you, then it’s no longer selfless, is it? Well, that’s, that’s, uh, that’s like at that, at the mountain. Um, the, there’s like, at that point there’s like a u what’s that, what’s the word you called? Ubiquity. There’s a ubiquitousness.


There’s a, uh, at the, it’s, it’s like when you become so liberal, you’re a Nazi. I mean, like, you make you, you come full circle. Yeah. It’s, man, if the ego gets a hold of that self, uh, presenting or appearing or found everywhere. Yeah. When you’re completely self, you selfless, you become the self. Like there’s some sort of paradox there. Uh, se and kib, the dynamic duo. Good morning, Mr. Beaver is in the house. Yes. Uh, paradox is the word you were, uh, looking for. Well, thank you. I sent, see, I sent a Steven Segal carrot to your instant message. Right? Oh, my favorite caller has arrived. Corey, good morning. Um, he hung up. He hung up. Okay. Uh, 3 44 Venezuela. I know I wrote Ukraine, but I should have called this Venezuela. Venezuela. Venezuela. I remember years ago when I did the CrossFit podcast, there was crazy shit going on in Venezuela. Here we go.

Daniel Di Martino (10:06):

Zu. In the last seven years for comparison, 6 million people have left Ukraine net of return migration for comparison, about 6 million people have left Syria. This is the largest refugee crisis in the world. Yet nobody in the media talks about that. Right? Everybody talks about the Syrian refugees. Everybody talks about the Ukrainian refugees. And that’s a great thing. And we need to have compassion. I’m not saying that we shouldn’t talk about those things, but there’s a reason why people don’t mention the largest refugee crisis in the world. And that is that this is the only refugee crisis of these that is not caused by a war that is not caused by chemical weapons. It’s caused by socialism. 7 million people have fled Venezuela in the last seven years for comparison.

Sevan Matossian (10:52):

Imagine that dude have

Daniel Di Martino (10:53):

Left Ukraine,

Sevan Matossian (10:54):

Seven left

Daniel Di Martino (10:55):

Of return migration.

Sevan Matossian (10:58):

7 million people left Venezuela have fled. Dude, that country’s tiny.

Caleb Beaver (11:06):

You, you probably haven’t seen this, but the, the new, um, Jack Ryan series maybe was the last Jack, the last season of

Sevan Matossian (11:14):

Jack Ryan. I, I actually went to Prime for the first time in a long time yesterday. Cause I was gonna start watching, um, I guess there’s a new Yellowstone out. And I was looking around where to watch it. And I, and I saw the some Jack Ryan shit, like in the, in the top

Caleb Beaver (11:28):

As a, it is a very interesting series. But, um, I think the second season of the show, they talk about how Venezuela’s like the next, uh, global power that’s gonna to like, create socialism or something like that. Or they’re gonna, they’re like the biggest threat to America in the next 10 years or something like that. So it’s very interesting to see like somebody Venezuela as a, as an issue. I’m not gonna spoil it. If you didn’t watch season two, you’re two years behind Buddy

Sevan Matossian (12:01):

<laugh>. I, I, I, I watched, um, so I, I watched the last five Nicholas Cage movies, and I swear to you, the last five Nicholas Cage movies are the worst movies you could ever watch.

Caleb Beaver (12:14):

Oh, he’s a terrible actor.

Sevan Matossian (12:16):

<laugh>. It has gone completely downhill for him. Can you pull up, uh, Nicholas Cages, uh, imdb it, I, I watched this movie. It’s, it’s a, it’s a western. It is so bad. I watched some other one where, God, he, what? I don’t know what has happened to him, but I wanna start watching stuff I can talk about on the show. But like, I, I watched that movie menu. Hillary told me to watch it. That was in, that was really interesting. That was weird. Hey, Corey.

Corey (12:48):

Hey. Sorry, my phone cut out last time.

Sevan Matossian (12:52):

Are you from Venezuela? Hey.

Corey (12:53):

Uh, no. My dad’s from Mexico. My mom’s white.

Sevan Matossian (12:58):


Corey (12:59):

So I’m, I’m from North Carolina. All

Sevan Matossian (13:01):


Corey (13:02):

I did live in Japan for six years. So can I claim Asian?

Sevan Matossian (13:05):

Yes, of course.

Corey (13:08):

All right. You sound tired.

Sevan Matossian (13:09):

No, no, no. I was reading, uh, no, no. I I was never tired. I, I was reading simultaneously. I’m looking at the, there’s no way that these, you’re telling me Nicholas cage’s voice was in the spider verse?

Caleb Beaver (13:20):

Yeah, it’s the, he’s the

Corey (13:21):

Spiderman war, the black guy,

Caleb Beaver (13:23):

All black suit.

Corey (13:25):

The black and white cop. Mm-hmm. <affirmative>, detective Spider-Man. My daughter likes that movie.

Sevan Matossian (13:33):

Yeah, that’s a good, that that’s a good movie.

Corey (13:36):

Yeah. They’re making a new one too.

Sevan Matossian (13:39):

Uh, how come that that’s go to the top? Um, uh, let me see. Okay. So that movie, the Old Way, is like the worst movie you could ever see. <laugh>, that other movie, the Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent. Holy shit. It’s be horrible. Willie’s Wonderland. Fucking bizarre, stupid. He made a movie called Jiujitsu

Caleb Beaver (14:04):

<laugh>. Of course he did.

Sevan Matossian (14:07):

<laugh>, what has happened to this?

Corey (14:10):

Do your boys watch Frozen?

Sevan Matossian (14:11):

Maybe? I saw running with the D Yeah, they, not anymore, but they went through a massive frozen phase.

Corey (14:18):

Okay. Just making sure.

Sevan Matossian (14:19):


Corey (14:21):

My daughter’s on a Ninja Turtle Teenage Meet and Ninja Turtle kick.

Sevan Matossian (14:24):

Yeah. My kids went through that too. Yeah,

Corey (14:27):


Sevan Matossian (14:28):

Yeah, yeah, yeah. Yeah. Okay. Sorry. Uh, I, I d i I derailed you.

Corey (14:33):

No, you’re good. So I, I think it’s important for you were, I’m not religious either. And you had that religious, um,

Sevan Matossian (14:42):

Oh, yeah. Michelle. Talk about give it all to God. Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah. And I really like, yeah, I really like that speech. Like, like I heard it and I was like, yeah, I like this. I like this.

Corey (14:51):

Uh, I had like a five year stint from when I was like 18 to 23 to 24, where, you know, I laugh at people who were religious.

Sevan Matossian (14:59):


Corey (15:00):

Um, but I’ve matured since then. Yeah. I understand why they’re religious, and so I don’t make fun of them. That’s their own personal beliefs. But I do believe there is some power in giving yourself up to something greater than yourself. Um, it, it, I don’t think it has to be God or aah or, you know, some higher being. I, I just think you have to find something that you’re willing to sacrifice yourself, your beliefs, or for something else. I mine, I think mine was my marriage and, and my family. And I don’t know if that’s strong enough, but I’m, I’m curious to hear your take on people who decide to maybe give their selves up or their, their stance on maybe material things or relationship instead of just finding God.

Sevan Matossian (15:53):

Here’s the crazy thing. I I, I’m starting to realize you could pull up 3 33. Everyone has a God. Like, like I, I know the religious people already know that. They’re like, yeah, it does have on everyone has a God. So we’re designed so that every person picks a God. You have to have a God. Even the people who say they don’t have a God, that’s their God. Every single person here has a God. Some people, it’s like, just work. Some people it’s money. But we’re designed to put something at the, at the fucking apex. Some people, their God is feeling sorry for themselves. And, and I didn’t re It’s like saying that, um, uh, like it, like every person has a God. Oh, so is that, that’s 3 33. Yeah. Okay. So, so I, go ahead. Yeah, yeah, that’s fine. That’s fine. So, I, I wrote this the other day, Corey, so many people are fucked up because this is their God.


They mock Christians because they believe in God. And Jesus not realizing they have a, most people who don’t even believe, think they believe in a God. They have greater faith than people who believe in God. The thing is, is their faith is put in CBS news, right? Their faith is put in the fact of what they see on 60 Minutes that, um, uh, that 12 year olds who are fat should be put on medications. And 13 year olds who the medication doesn’t work on should get surgery. That’s their fucking God. And instead of fucking realizing, oh my God, I have a God. And it’s cbs. B s News, it’s Leslie STAs, a 90 year old woman on 60 Minutes. They make fun of Christians for their God. And I just am starting to finally realize that every person has a God. Some people’s God is making fun of other people’s gods. And so if you, once you realize that and you have to pick a fucking God, you better pick the best one. And, uh, there’s no, I’m not, there’s no joke here in me saying this. There’s no, like, it’s not po it’s not supposed to be poetic. You actually have a God. All of you who say you don’t believe in God, you still have one. You have to have one. You ha we’re designed that way. You have your shit ev all of us have a fucking tractor beam and we pointed at something.

Corey (18:03):

So it’s like you’re true north.

Sevan Matossian (18:04):

Yeah, exactly. Okay. Yeah. Thank you. And, and, and fucking people pointed at the fucking United States government. And that’s what, and that, and, but, and, and then they make fun of Christians. That’s, it’s, it’s so fucking bizarre. What I’m starting to realize. It’s such a trip. It’s such a trip. It’s just the way we work. So you, so when you pick something that’s unknown, well, so when you pick the right thing as your God, yeah. You can have tremendous, uh, uh, success and happiness in this world. I mean, what, what better way than to have something that you can kind of, that can just help you, you, I mean, you want something that can help you cope with everything and, and make it so you get out of your own way. I mean, that’s the thing, right? We’re all our own worst enemy. So we gotta get out of, get out of our own way. Yeah. This, this, this thing where people think, when I saw that story, that anyone who would think for a fucking second that a 12 year old should be on diet medication or, or a 13 year old should have weight loss surgery. That means that they, that’s their God. You put, you put your kid under the knife, you put your kid, you, you gave your kid drugs because the government said you should are, are you out of your fucking mind? That’s who you chose as your God.


It’s, it’s, um, and w and, and, and I I wanna reiterate Corey, that those people, most of those people I think have more faith in their God than Christians have faith in their God. I’m just kinda making that. Yeah. Hundred. I’m making that up for dramatic value. But I, but I suspect it’s true.

Corey (19:40):

No, I, I like, what do they call ’em? Sunday Christians.

Sevan Matossian (19:43):

Yeah. And, and I’m not, I’m not, I’m not hating on ’em, but, um, their shit’s. So, uh, the Christian God is so, um, ethereal. Thank you. Ethereal. Thank you. Uh, Caleb, mine reader. Caleb, that doesn’t make you believe in God. I don’t know what will watched. You just saw Caleb read my mind, uh, ethereal and th th these fucking guys, they’re God’s like real, it’s like some, it’s, you know, Dr. Fauci and no, he is not, he’s a scientist. Dude, that’s your fucking God. Uh, grace, uh, um, me just do it already. Savon res, peel yourself into being a Christian

Corey (20:20):

<laugh>. Well, I’m gonna play devil’s advocate, please. Against the shows.

Sevan Matossian (20:26):


Corey (20:26):

I, you said yesterday you were talking about diluting when you talk, so like, maybe if you don’t say stuff, when you do speak, you have more power to your voice. Oh, yeah. I think

Sevan Matossian (20:40):

There is, I was talking about yeah, like being like, I, I don’t, I don’t wanna fight. Like when, like if, if someone on the, why would I give my voice to douche bags on the internet mm-hmm. <affirmative> on, on Instagram who are just being assholes then to like, then I feel like I’m disrespecting you when I talk to you kind of.

Corey (20:57):

Well, I think that has some weight. If you, if you do more than one show a day and there’s not a reason to do it, so like Waap Palooza Rogue, some type of event, I think it makes a hundred percent sense as to doing multiple, multiple shows in one day. Yeah. But if you’re just, if you’re just bored and it’s 10 o’clock at night and you’re like, fuck it, let’s just do another live call in show. I think, I think that might dilute and maybe there is some sort of cannibalism to the audience. Okay.

Sevan Matossian (21:26):

So just to be, if, if any, just to be super clear, it would never be like that. So, so, uh, I have this cra I’m just a nonstop 24 hours a day building live calling shows, and I start to get a little anxiety. Like Caleb will tell you this list of, of notes from the live calling shows used to be like 20, 40, 60. Now it’s like, it’s approaching 400 different topics I want to bring up. And so I start to get anxiety when I have too many. So like, if a week passes and I haven’t fucking done a Love Collins show, live Collins show, and I see this list building, I start to trip. So yesterday when we had a Live Collins show and I saw we could do one this morning, I was starting to feel good because I’m actually gonna be able to get through this list.


But I’m never, I, I try to make every show honestly better than the previous show. It’s never, it’s never like that. It’s never out of boredom or like, I need to get the numbers up, or it’s kind of, um, like why I did two workouts yesterday. It’s just, it’s, if, if anything, the only shortcoming from it is that’s, it’s I’m obsessive, right? But never out of, never out of boredom or to get more subscribers or to the, the most shallow thing that I do a show, the reason I do a show for is I feel loyalty to everyone who’s already committed to 7:00 AM every morning. But when I wake up, man, I’m pumped and come out and hang out with you guys.

Corey (22:47):

I still would like to bring back the new show.

Sevan Matossian (22:49):

Oh, with, uh, uh, uh, show Bart and, uh, Kate Gordon.

Corey (22:53):

Well, with anybody. And if you’re taking applications, I mean, that would be, I, I, I sometimes have to get my news from other podcasts, but I, I would love if there was like a dedicated, even at the end of the show, every 15 minutes would be only current event to make sure that we’re caught up and we hear your perspective on

Sevan Matossian (23:11):

Oh, that’s

Corey (23:11):

Interesting. On current events.

Sevan Matossian (23:12):

Oh, okay. I like that.

Corey (23:15):

So, um, what’d you think about my, I’ll,

Sevan Matossian (23:17):

I’ll let, what’d you think about my idea? Like a, a a giant fat person going around and breaking furniture at ikea?

Corey (23:25):

I think it could be a, maybe that could be your shorts.

Sevan Matossian (23:28):

God wouldn’t that, that’s huge, right?

Corey (23:30):

Yeah. I love the idea. All right. But who, who are you gonna pay to be the fat person to

Sevan Matossian (23:36):

Uh, I don’t pay them nothing. They just lucky that, that, that, that they can just take my ID and run with it. They’re lucky they get that.

Corey (23:43):

All right.

Sevan Matossian (23:43):

Alright. Thank you, Corey. Bye.

Corey (23:45):

Hello? Hey, am I still here?

Sevan Matossian (23:48):


Corey (23:49):

I, I sent Caleb a package and respond to me about Ling off the L one. I’ll let you go. Okay. Bye.

Sevan Matossian (23:57):

Who’s gonna pay for that L one? Corey. Hello? Call her. Hi.

Corey (24:01):

Hey, how you guys doing?

Sevan Matossian (24:02):

I’m good. I’m awesome. I got a little freaked out though when Corey said you shouldn’t do shows cuz you’re bored. I hope no one ever thinks I would come out here cuz I’m bored and fuck with you guys. No, I, I don’t even never get bored.

Corey (24:13):

Listen, I saw, I actually saw, I heard a radio commercial, uh, that made me think about you, uh, yesterday and it was like one those public health announcements, like why do some people get from Covid than others? Oh my God. They figured it out. And so it goes on, goes, we found studies show recently show that if you have coronary artery disease, hypertension, diabetes, or obesity that you’re to have, they go on to say if you have any of these conditions, please see your primary care doctor again, super excited that they’re gonna tell people that they should stop, you know, being sick. And because if you don’t have any of these conditions, there’s a medication that can help you when you get covid. And I was like, alright, nevermind. They missed the giant, uh,

Sevan Matossian (25:10):

Know, I I I think now 50% of the problem with Covid is that when people get it, they’re so fucking scared that it fucking just ex exacerbates their problem. I saw, I saw study yesterday, they were

Corey (25:20):

So close, they were so

Sevan Matossian (25:22):

Close to figuring

Corey (25:23):

Out that maybe, maybe not the medication, maybe we should stop, you know, being sick and being fat. But no, instead let’s just take more medication to fix the problem.

Sevan Matossian (25:31):

Hey, who sponsored the ad? Was it the government or a, a pharmaceutical company?

Corey (25:35):

I sh I shut it off as soon as I heard that. Yeah,

Sevan Matossian (25:37):

Right. Smart.

Corey (25:38):

I was sick, sick of that, you know, and I’m in the, I’m in the medical field too and, you know, constantly telling people try to do these right things and, and uh, it’s crazy cause I have to be careful, uh, what I say to people because, uh, I, I recently, uh, got ridden up for fat shaming and, and I was not fat shaming. I was telling the person that they would benefit from losing, you know, 75 to hundred 25 pounds.

Sevan Matossian (26:02):

Wow. They must have been hu They must have been huge.

Corey (26:05):

They were, they were, you know, 375 pounds.

Sevan Matossian (26:09):


Corey (26:10):

You know, and they wanted spine surgery. And I said,

Sevan Matossian (26:12):

Wait a second, we can do it. Is your job to, um, work with those people in the medical industry?

Corey (26:18):

No. I, I work in, I work in, uh, in spine surgery

Sevan Matossian (26:21):

And what, in surgery?

Corey (26:23):

Yeah. Yeah.

Sevan Matossian (26:24):

And you told one of your coworkers, um, have you considered losing weight or was it a, a client?

Corey (26:30):

No, it was a patient.

Sevan Matossian (26:31):

And and is that your job to help patients?

Corey (26:36):

I try to,

Sevan Matossian (26:37):

But that’s like your job. You’re not like, you weren’t like, you’re not like the, the janitor and you were just walking by the door and you’re like, Hey, fat’s so loose some weight. It’s like you’re actually like you were, you had a con a a job with this person.

Corey (26:47):

No, it’s, they’re, they’re my patient.

Sevan Matossian (26:49):

Yeah. This is fucking nuts. You told one of your patients who weighed 375 pounds that they should lose some weight and you got in trouble for that.

Corey (26:56):

I told them that they can’t have the surgery cause it’s not possible because of how, how large they’re,

Sevan Matossian (27:06):

I I can’t think of anything a doctor could say to an obese person that would be fat shaming.

Corey (27:12):

So I

Sevan Matossian (27:13):

Was like, so if you said you disgusting fat gluttonous piece of shit, you’re gonna die if you don’t lose weight. I don’t see that as fat shaming.

Corey (27:21):

So I had to sit down with the, like a department head because that was the, the phrasing they used on my, cause we get reviews and that’s how the whole system works, is that that person felt that I was snatching him.

Sevan Matossian (27:33):

Fucking incredible. Like even if you were to say like, I could see you getting reported for like, using bad words or being too aggressive or like, like you motherfucking fat piece of shit. You’re consuming too many resources. No one wants to sit by you on the plane, you’re gonna fucking die if you don’t lose weight. I can see them be like, Hey dude, it’s not really your business to talk about their air travel. And you’re like, okay. Sorry. Yeah, but I, I, I don’t, I don’t. If your job is to help people get better and they’re overweight, I don’t see how you, I don’t see how you could, it’s like it, let’s say your job is to, um, uh, break glass bottles at the, at the recycling plant. And, uh, I don’t know what metaphor I’m going for. I just, I just don’t understand how I, I just don’t understand how that’s, I i it, it could be a lot of other things. It could be a lot of things, but it’s, when it comes to saving someone’s life, it’s like, say whatever it takes. You had

Corey (28:32):

Takes, you had a position on a while ago, uh, Dr. West and she talked about it too. And we we’re local and I know her and um, and, and she talked about it too. Like, you have to be careful what you say because I also gotta protect my, you know, the way I put, uh, dinner on the table for my kids. You know, have to be careful because these reviews, they, they mean something for when it comes to uh, you know, salary and bonus time.

Sevan Matossian (28:58):

Wow. Good point. Oh look at soccer. Mom said it. Well, it’s like saying to someone over, um, the bus is too big for the wheels instead of saying those wheels don’t fit on the bus. Yeah. Who It, it really is like that. It’s that kind of idiocy. Like you buy tires and they’re too big for your car so you throw your car away and get a new car where the wheels fit. I mean it’s just, it’s just hard land.

Corey (29:17):

Speaking of it, I better get back to work. Thanks guys for doing a great job.

Sevan Matossian (29:20):

Okay. Love you. Bye. No, he didn’t. He didn’t get ’em. Only like only, only the cabinet lady gets them more. Okay. Alison, aren’t you gonna Hawaii today? Oh, this is awesome. God, we’re three calls today. You know how like make fun of like those internet shows Like, like one person calls it. We’re kind of like one of those shows but today we’re not. It’s fucking great. Call her hype.

Plumber (29:50):

Sevan Matossian (29:53):
