Don’t hit me with, uh, don’t hit me with the infamous question. Are you, do you think you’re aware? So, yeah. I am aware of what it looks like if you don’t turn the phone.

Sevan Matossian (00:25):

I just can’t believe how many people who do it like this and like they’re on my podcast when it should be. Like, it’s like, I, I never even, I never even correct them.

Travis Bagent  (00:34):

<laugh>. Not, not anymore. I got you. I told you a long time ago. You can’t, you can’t blame people for being who they are, right?

Sevan Matossian (00:42):

Yeah. I’m still learning

Travis Bagent  (00:44):

Now. You know? I can only imagine. You are al That was a tough lesson for you.

Sevan Matossian (00:48):

I’m still learning.

Travis Bagent  (00:50):

Travis Bagent  (01:15):

It was, it was

Sevan Matossian (01:16):

Such a perfect situation where I was

Travis Bagent  (01:20):

Like, oh, that is probably like the third time I called. And, uh, and now he’s in this weird space where he kind of feels like he needs to answer and shit.

Sevan Matossian (01:31):

No, listen. No, listen.

Travis Bagent  (01:33):

Oh, more. Hey, I can’t wait.

Sevan Matossian (01:36):


Travis Bagent  (01:36):

I almost did it today, but I was like, oh, I don’t wanna freak him out with the

Sevan Matossian (01:40):

No. I’ll freak me out. Listen, I get all that from Boys in the Hood. You remember in Boys in the Hood when the guy would answer the phone? Who this? Of

Travis Bagent  (01:47):


Sevan Matossian (01:47):

Of course. Who did? So I just like doing that. It’s like, uh, it’s, I like to prepare. I like, oh, I have the, I like to just, um, who this, what you need? Who this? Yeah.

Travis Bagent  (01:56):

Well, plus I’m just letting you know when you have the rise in social class that you have

Sevan Matossian (02:03):

Had. Yeah, yeah, yeah. Tell me, tell me when

Travis Bagent  (02:05):

You do that. Yeah, it’s that one little, for that split second. You’re like, oh,

Sevan Matossian (02:11):

I just kidding.

Travis Bagent  (02:12):

That’s why I don’t like, that’s why I don’t like that. This guy’s the

Sevan Matossian (02:14):

Man <laugh>.

Travis Bagent  (02:15):

Yeah. Right there. Perfect example.

Sevan Matossian (02:18):

Hey, um, 2022 Bazaar turn of events for the show. We got our, uh, ratings from Buzz Sprout, like the, the, so when we make this podcast, Travis, it gets hosted by a company called Buzz Sprout. And then you push a button and then they send it to all the different people, right? Like Amazon, apple, Spotify, all the people where people listen to podcasts. And so I, I do a lot of CrossFit podcasts, right? A lot of them, right? But I’m trying to do more and more not CrossFit podcast and my top five podcast for 2000. First of all, this podcast is in the top 1% of all the podcasts in the world, in all categories. The weird thing is, is there’s 2.7 million podcasts. So that means there’s a lot of really shitty podcasts. I mean, a lot

Travis Bagent  (03:00):

<laugh>. Yeah. I think I, I’m, I, I, uh, possess one of those.

Sevan Matossian (03:04):

I’m at the very top of the heap of the shitty podcast. I’m like, I’m like the k if there’s, you know, there’s the a, b A team, B team, C team. I’m the king of the C team, like the king. And, um, so, but my number one podcast of 2022 was the last podcast I did with you. The most popular one. That’s crazy, right?

Travis Bagent  (03:25):

Say it again. Your number one

Sevan Matossian (03:26):

You my most popular podcast of the entire 2022 year was the last podcast I did with you.

Travis Bagent  (03:33):

Oh, nice.

Sevan Matossian (03:34):

Yes. Are you kidding? No. Number one podcast of seven podcast is done is when we had you on last time. I had, I thought

Travis Bagent  (03:41):

You were gonna act like that It was, um, that it was Tyson’s, but that’s even

Sevan Matossian (03:45):

Sweeter, dude. No, yours. You’re sweeter. Yeah. And you know, we have people like, it doesn’t show on YouTube because like on YouTube it’ll be like Dave or like, you know, you know, people in the CrossFit community, rich phoning. But the number one podcast that we’ve, the most downloads we’ve ever had on Apple or Spotify, which crushes our YouTube numbers is Travis Bian history. Well, <laugh>,

Travis Bagent  (04:06):

There you

Sevan Matossian (04:07):

Go. History of the show. Crazy, right?

Travis Bagent  (04:10):

<laugh>, I mean, listen, I,

Sevan Matossian (04:13):

You’re not surprised. Tell

Travis Bagent  (04:14):

You, I, you have to know that in the podcast that I’m on ever, I’m always the number one podcast for that person

Sevan Matossian (04:24):

Right now. I get it.

Travis Bagent  (04:25):

I am pumped.

Sevan Matossian (04:27):

I get

Travis Bagent  (04:27):

It that you are in that category. Cuz you have to know too our relationship, you know, for the past 10 years I could see you, you know, every day for a month or I may not see you for two and a half years span. Right? And during that years, you know, especially the last few years as people hit me with the, Hey man, do you know this cat? And I’m like, yeah, yeah, I know this guy. They’re like, dude, I think this guy’s got a chance, right? Like, this could be the dude. And I’m like, and every time I just kind of look over to whoever’s around me, whether it’s Casey or, or Tyson or whoever it is. And, and I, I give him that validation, like, yeah, I mean, listen, that’s the smartest guy I know is that cat right there. And it used to be me and this guy used to walk around looking for smart dudes cuz we just were interested. And, uh, before long, you know, kind of realized that you, you in fact were one of those smart dudes. So congratulations on that.

Sevan Matossian (05:32):

You told me the other, the other night, Hey, I’m, I’m done hanging around normal people. I was telling my wife that <laugh> the norm, the normal people. Yeah. The normal people that are, are, are. She’s like, what do you mean? I go, I’m, I’m, I’m with Travis, I’m done hanging around normal people. She said, what’s that mean? I’m like, I don’t know what it means. And she goes, what about the normal people you already know? I’m like, tra I asked Travis that too. He said they get grandfathered in <laugh>. Oh, they said you

Travis Bagent  (05:54):

When you were just normal and you were looking for people. If you, but no longer

Sevan Matossian (05:59):

If you don’t have ambitions of going to Mars or, or something crazy, some delusional aspirations. I’m done. I don’t like, I like, I got enough just normal people who in my life,

Travis Bagent  (06:09):

A hundred

Sevan Matossian (06:10):

Percent. I just want create like, people

Travis Bagent  (06:12):

Only have the top floor is only vacancies that we have around here. And Yeah. If you’re amazing now listen, I mean, or yeah. That there’s a broad spectrum of my amazing. Yeah. So, um, but I’m in, if you’re, if you’re doing something extraordinary, I want to, I want to hear it. I want to see it and uh, and you can hang with me.

Sevan Matossian (06:35):

Yeah. If you’re gonna make electric lawnmowers that are the next big thing and you, you could be in, you could be my friend.

Travis Bagent  (06:41):

I understand. Yes. I, um, I did say that. Now listen, sometimes I’ll have these amazing thoughts there in the, in the middle of the evening,

Sevan Matossian (06:50):


Travis Bagent  (06:51):

Um, I think you can

Sevan Matossian (06:52):

Catch, was that too intimate? Was I not supposed to share that one? I thought it was a good one.

Travis Bagent  (06:55):

No, I love that one. You just have to know that I am kicking these things in different directions during the day, so I am, I may forget when I say something amazing like that.

Sevan Matossian (07:06):

Yeah, I don’t,

Travis Bagent  (07:07):

Yeah, I, I, I really like, that’s why Yeah, that’s why you’re big time and you got this show,

Sevan Matossian (07:13):

Uh, Travis, um, two, two main, uh, avenues. I kind of wanna, uh, talk about one, what’s going on with arm wrestling. Are you done, are you retired? Are you out of the scene?

Travis Bagent  (07:24):

That’s funny. I leave tomorrow to visit the, uh, great country of Turkey and I am headed to Istan Bowl to, to join forces with the American team. I

Sevan Matossian (07:36):

Will, but that’s as a promoter, right? You’re not actually cool.

Travis Bagent  (07:38):

Yeah, I’m going actually as a commentator. So me and Neil pick up will be handling all the East first West, um, action, I guess as what we’ll call it. Um, so yeah, you know, I’m wondering, that is a great question. I, um, I, I think that there, from a business standpoint, there is a very good reason for me to strap it that, you know, to really, uh, um, attack arm wrestling, you know, to the best of my abilities. And, um, you know, there’s a, I think there’s some paychecks. There’s really no doubt about that. Um, the problem is, is, you know, if you get out just for a second, it’s so hard, you know, for, for me, like I know it’s easy for you, maybe not for you, but easy for most people to say, Trent, go do two risk girls and be the champ again, because we love when you’re at a champ and it’s like, yeah, I got you.


But I know what it really takes to be the champ. Um, so a part of me, you know, I don’t know if I really, really want to do it, but I think I’m going to do it. Um, meaning I’m going to put my body in that position where, um, you know, I’m gonna take some money from a promoter. Um, I just hope that, um, something kicks in because honestly, my competitive fire is nowhere near where you would want it to be. Sorry if, uh, if you were going to embark in this thing. Um, and then as a promoter it’s like there’s so much low-hanging fruit and it’s so easy, um, to just run our wrestl tournaments and profit from ’em that I know that I’ll never be truly done. But whether I’m never like the champ of again, it’s um, hopefully I’m thinking this weekend or this week, we’ll kinda light a, a bigger fire there.

Sevan Matossian (09:42):

Uh, when’s the last time you’ve competed, uh, in an arm wrestling tournament? Like a real one? I don’t mean

Travis Bagent  (09:46):

Like, I’ve seen in a tournament in Florida about maybe 13 months ago, 11 months ago. So it was last year around this time I flew down.

Sevan Matossian (09:56):

Who’d you pull? Anyone? I know.

Travis Bagent  (09:58):

Say it again.

Sevan Matossian (09:59):

Who’d you pull? Anyone I know. Um,

Travis Bagent  (10:01):

I pulled Chad Silvers as whole little crew. Um,

Sevan Matossian (10:04):

So, so not just one person you pulled to everyone on

Travis Bagent  (10:06):

Team? Well, I ended up winning. I was lucky enough to win the left-handed competition and then competed in the, uh, in the, the overalls to where I worked myself from the top to the bottom. Um, and I, I actually, it was, they were giving away a motorcycle, so I won two keys to a, uh, to a used Harley Davidson. Um, which was really funny that it was used, but it was still pretty cool. I think they ended up selling that thing for about $4,500 when the tournament was over. So did you

Sevan Matossian (10:39):

Win it getting, did your key work? My

Travis Bagent  (10:42):

Key did not work. I ended up getting two keys for winning the heavyweights and the overalls. I split my two keys with two other guys and Chad Silvers and the rest of his team more or less had every key except for me and one other two 20 guy that won right-handed. Um, so the, the kid Hunter nos was 154 pound really strong dude from South Carolina. He ended up, um, starting the bike up and winning. So, but for me, honestly, I won that tournament because of my name. I set the bracket, I gave myself a good first round, then, um, got right into the BI scenario. Um, by the time I got to my semi-final match, um, the two other guys had had a pretty good match. Um, so I kind of like convinced those guys that second place was the, was the limit for ’em and, and they kind of bowed down and it worked out really well. So

Sevan Matossian (11:45):

Really in the finals they did in the final, in the final, they didn’t give you nothing?

Travis Bagent  (11:49):

Yeah, they did, but it was one of those things where they did not know that I was just probably a little bit better than them because of the way it panned out and my non-verbal and verbal communication, um, as to how awesome I was that day kind of really worked out. And you know what? It it, it can do that in a tournament. You get eight or nine guys, the bracket gets funny, there’s a buy in there. Um, and if there’s any kind of a tough match with a guy in the bracket that you haven’t faced yet, it’s really daunting and it gives a lot of, um, you know, it gives a lot of, of confidence I would say to the guy who’s unscathed. So, um, I’ll take it because I kind of needed it. It was fun to, cuz really ultimately when you’re there and you’re arm wrestling and you don’t have to arm wrestle, yeah, you’re there and you know, it’s one of those things where you’re not gonna make any more money. There’s really no prize there that, um, that’s worth, you know, what’s gonna happen if in fact you lose from an internet standpoint these days. Like it’s going viral when Travis bacon loses. It doesn’t matter how small the event is,

Sevan Matossian (13:03):

<laugh> the internet. That sucks.

Travis Bagent  (13:05):


Sevan Matossian (13:07):

That sucks. Yes. Uh, Mason, when you say you pulled, it means, uh, a pulled means arm wrestle. It means your arm wrestle him. I pulled a guy that means you arm wrestle him. The arm wrestlers call arm wrestling, pooling, pulling, pulling, pulling. How do you say it? Pulling or pulling,

Travis Bagent  (13:20):


Sevan Matossian (13:21):

Yeahing. It’s

Travis Bagent  (13:22):

Just depends on how deep you are in West Virginia as to how

Sevan Matossian (13:25):

It accident. Yeah. Pulling, pulling, uh, my hat. So this is a wool hat. I just have this, I was at my kid’s tennis and it’s freezing here at night, so I had to, I have this wool. I was wearing a wool hat for those of you tripping on my hat, fine. The hat’s gone. Bye-bye.

Travis Bagent  (13:38):

Explain to me, explain to me the level of tennis that your boys are participating. Straight practice or is this

Sevan Matossian (13:45):

Instinct? They can beat all, they can beat any, any, uh, ethnicity except the Asian kids and the Indian kids. That’s

Travis Bagent  (13:51):

Kids. Indian kids only

Sevan Matossian (13:53):

One. Yes, they’re the best.

Travis Bagent  (13:54):

Are those kids the exact same age as your kid or even a Asian and

Sevan Matossian (13:58):

Indian? Yes. Younger. Younger.

Travis Bagent  (13:59):

Younger. Younger. That’s two years younger than your kids can still beat your kid.

Sevan Matossian (14:03):

Yeah, so my kids can beat the black kids and the white kids who are 12, even though they’re like six and eight, but the, they can’t beat the two year old Asian and Indian kids. Hey,

Travis Bagent  (14:13):

Listen, it’s important, it’s important for someone to know the level, right? So that you can at least show them one day or you can tell ’em to watch their mouth when, when the right family walks in the, the court,

Sevan Matossian (14:27):

They’re basically the best in Santa Cruz for their age, the pound for pound best. And my wife took the kids over the hill like 60 miles to a city called Lafayette, real ritzie town. And uh, yeah, it was all, it was. Uh, my wife went to the tournament, she said there was, uh, our kids, there was one white kid there, my kid, one black kid there, and then the rest were Asians and Indians. And he said they were just, those kids were just on another level.

Travis Bagent  (14:50):

So is there a tennis season for young kids or is there a tournament every weekend?

Sevan Matossian (14:54):

I, I think just every weekend. I don’t, I honestly don’t know.

Travis Bagent  (14:58):

Gotcha. Are you, are, is that, is that a goal for

Sevan Matossian (15:01):

The No, uh, uh,

Travis Bagent  (15:02):


Sevan Matossian (15:03):

No, no, I think the av the average height of a, uh, professional tennis player is male tennis player. I wanna say a six five. It’s something crazy like that of the 500 ma I’ll look it, I’ll look it up real quick.

Travis Bagent  (15:17):

I was speaking with a gentleman not too long ago about, um, about it was an athlete or it was something and they, with a straight face looked at me right? And said, well, maybe it’s time for a growth hormone. And I said, what do you mean? And

Sevan Matossian (15:35):

They, oh, for my kids,

Travis Bagent  (15:37):

Well just for any kid,

Sevan Matossian (15:38):

Oh, oh,

Travis Bagent  (15:39):

This guy told me that it was okay to feed a pre puberty kid certain levels of growth hormone. And that’s how you end up, um, with, uh, with some of these freak athletes. And I think he was more or less talking about, um, overseas athletes. And of course that whole myth that, you know, the Russian doin scandal is real. So, um, I don’t know if it was true, but this was a person that I kind of like whenever they talk, I kinda listen. Yeah, like that they have some valid points. But yeah, he said that that’s why you’ll see every once in a while you’ll see this person and you’re wondering, wow, I’d like to see that person’s parents. But when you see the parents, you don’t see what you are looking for. And then that’s, he claims that, that uh, that there’s really no way for that growth hormone to hurt a pre puberty kid. Hey, have you, uh, do you know any, do you have any research on that?

Sevan Matossian (16:39):

Hey, uh, uh, here a two year old shows signs of puberty after he was exposed to his dad’s testosterone gel. He developed pubic hair and his height was off the charts. This article goes on to say his penis was huge too. And, uh,

Travis Bagent  (16:54):

But where’s the downside? Where’s the downside for feeding this? Get this kid juiced up?

Sevan Matossian (16:59):

I don’t know, but I ain’t Oh yeah, but it was only after she saw pubic hair around his sizable penis that she got seriously worried. Dude, it Come on man.

Travis Bagent  (17:09):

Yeah. Well, and that’s a, listen, I think testosterone’s a little more dangerous than growth hormone.

Sevan Matossian (17:16):

I don’t know, but I would not fuck with my kid’s process.

Travis Bagent  (17:19):

Yeah, I think that too. You gotta be gangster. You gotta be gangster boy.

Sevan Matossian (17:25):

What would the psychological implications be to get your kid all juiced up like, like your kid would be? Well,

Travis Bagent  (17:30):

That would definitely be one of those mental illness, mental illness things that you wouldn’t want, um, to give to your kids. There’s no doubt about that.

Sevan Matossian (17:40):

Hey, um, Travis, you know, like you remember when your kids are like one years old and they’re walking already or 13 months and they’re walking and you’re looking at ’em and like, this is fucked up. They don’t have the intellectual capacity to walk. They’re not smart enough to walk. They should be stuck crawling until they’re like three <laugh>. They just do so much dumb shit. It’s like, dude, you’re not smart enough to walk. So it’s already too much too soon to be able to walk. They, they, yeah.

Travis Bagent  (18:05):

Yeah. And, and you think about you forcing them, that’s like the first thing that you force your kid to do something because of our society. And then boom, there they are walking into the fireplace and you’re like, whoa, whoa, whoa. Why did I do that? Well, that’s one of them. First time you gotta check yourself. Yes. Am I going to raise this kid exactly the way I’m supposed to? Or maybe not. Maybe not

Sevan Matossian (18:34):

Bruce Wayne. This dude is a g Oh, you don’t even know. You don’t even but, but good. You’re, you’re good at your, your g radar is

Travis Bagent  (18:43):

Great perception there, young man. Great.

Sevan Matossian (18:47):

Okay, so Travis, so you haven’t arm wrestled in 13 months, you’re going to Turkey to do commentating. And um, what about, uh, wrestling? This, uh, giant dude, uh, that, that you have mentioned to me on the phone about wrestling, uh, soon? Is that

Travis Bagent  (19:01):

Yeah, we’re kind of away from that at the exact moment. That la if you’re you talking Levon

Sevan Matossian (19:07):

Or are you No, Dennis.

Travis Bagent  (19:09):

Dennis. Yeah. So that’s funny is that’s how Ingen works, right? So there’s two special guests, which would be me and one Dennis to plank off. So I imagine that if Ingham’s Mastermind dream comes true, there will be a conflict caught on video, um, between me and Dennis. And I think Dennis is more or less in the same position I’m in to where he had some, some past, um, champions championships, I would guess. And that he is being, um, courted an influence to join in England’s regime as well. And listen, just so you know, you can imagine how big GaN Jersey has this event if he’s bringing me over to just commentate along with, I mean there’s gonna be at least a 40 person guest list of, of airfare tickets and hotel rooms and, and a lot of, of, um, travel and expenses going into this. So it looks, from the outside looking in, it looks like about a hundred, $150,000 production. And he’s putting these events on now once every eight, nine weeks. So, you know, GaN jersey is, um, you know, he’s like, you savan, he’s um, he’s figured something out.

Sevan Matossian (20:33):

Well, well too little, too late. He needed to figure out 10 years ago.

Travis Bagent  (20:38):

Well, I mean for you. Yeah, but for him, you know, this is a life dream and um,

Sevan Matossian (20:45):

You know, is he still good? Is he any good? He any good still? Is he still good artist?

Travis Bagent  (20:48):

No, you know what? Totally strictly a promoter. Um, I think that every once in a while I think he went through some, some injuries and, you know, uh, from an athlete standpoint, this guy’s like a psychopath. Like I don’t think that he would compete unless he was, you know, at the very top. Especially I would imagine you’re talking about this guy arm wrestling in Turkey amongst his countrymen and you’re, he would have to be like injury fee, injury free, like super prepared. So, um, we don’t, I don’t think we’re gonna see any in arm wrestle much, but somehow he has taken over 100% Igor plus plus when it comes to the events. Wow.

Sevan Matossian (21:32):


Travis Bagent  (21:32):

I know. That’s crazy, right?

Sevan Matossian (21:34):

Yeah. Hey, uh, Sarah? No, none of these guys are juiced. Uh, this guy in particular is um, uh, 100% natural. This is just, uh, <laugh> <laugh>. This guy is just, uh, just, he just eats a lot and listen and stays in the gym a lot, right?

Travis Bagent  (21:50):

<laugh>? Exactly. Yeah. Hey, listen, here’s the deal. If you do neutral grip pullups, that’s what

Sevan Matossian (21:57):


Travis Bagent  (21:58):

Okay? You people got those hands off flat, no wonder things that are, are the same.

Sevan Matossian (22:04):

No wonder you can’t get strong

Travis Bagent  (22:05):

In neutral and all of a sudden your trunk starts growing,

Sevan Matossian (22:10):

Right? So have you that that guy’s, uh, that guy said he is 300 pounds. Um, ha have you ever, I wanna say once or twice you’ve gone, you’ve personally gone over 300. Have you gone over 300?

Travis Bagent  (22:21):

I have never seen the scale say 300 pounds. It’s always been less than that. The most I’ve actually seen is like 2 89. I’m not even in the two 90 ranges. Now, don’t tell me that I haven’t been 300 pounds and not check the scale. That’s possible. Okay? But usually when I am at my best, my love handles are posted right up here on my shoulder blades, I, you know, and the traps get bigger, I usually always weigh the same. It’s just whether I look when, when I’m, when I’m 2 85 and guys tell me, Hey, look like you lost some weight, that’s when I know that I’m about to go crazy on someone. Cuz that way I’m kind of small, but I know I’m not small because of the weight. And then there’s times where I know I’m a soft 2 85, like right now, um, I’m probably weigh two 70 right now. Um,

Sevan Matossian (23:18):

Really? You’re two 70 right now?

Travis Bagent  (23:19):

Yeah, probably 2 72, somewhere in there.

Sevan Matossian (23:22):

Oh, you look great dude.

Travis Bagent  (23:23):

Easily then I, yeah, I could look two 50, but I know I’m two 70, so that’s a soft two 70. So it all, it all, um, I kinda, whenever someone addresses me, I can put in context the last time I seen them and um, and whatever they say, I can kind of draw reference that. Oh, I can understand. Even though they’re completely wrong, I can understand why they said that.

Sevan Matossian (23:50):

Uh, you’re the one who, who, who, uh, taught me that if you weigh 300 pounds, you have to have air moving on. You can’t be in a room with still air. Yeah, <laugh>, like if you’re over 300 pounds <laugh>, there has to be a fan in the room at all times if you wake 300 pounds.

Travis Bagent  (24:05):

I heard Greg, uh, <laugh>, I was talking to Greg Glassman one time and he’s like, I mean, Travis, let’s just be honest, if you’re 400 pounds, you gotta go to the back of the line. And I said, what? What do you mean? He’s like, listen, you’ll walk in. You got, you know, you got your damn arm amputated. If there’s a person there with a hangnail, they get to go first. If you’re 400 pounds, I mean, you’re expendable. And then he, after we were laughing and there were, and then he kinda looked over at me, he’s like, Hey, Trev, now you’re not anywhere close to 400 pounds

Sevan Matossian (24:40):


Travis Bagent  (24:43):

I don’t, I don’t mind waiting in line anyway, little man, it’s all good, man. I

Sevan Matossian (24:47):

I got it. Uh, Jeffrey Berger, how tall is Travis?

Travis Bagent  (24:50):

Six three and a half when I was 25. Now I’ve had people try to tell me I’m not quite six three at these times, so I try not to pay attention to that guy. To me, I’m six three and a half until I die. Even though I’m probably a little closer to six, two and a half than I am six, three and a half these days.

Sevan Matossian (25:17):

I am looking for something here. Gimme one second. Looking for a, oh shit, I can’t find it. It’s a link. All right. Hey, um, uh, I’m taking a piss. We’re taking a one minute break, everyone, uh, relax. Uh, 55 second break and uh, Travis and I will be right back. What is with this guy? You know, if Howard Stern and Joe Rogan had a baby, you’d be looking at him. Remember the people were live, so don’t like start picking your nose or pull your dick out or anything crazy like that. And this is why this is the greatest show on the internet because there’s a comment here that says a lot of pre-com and then right after there’s a comment that says, it’s so sad, let’s go back to hand jobs, but without their names. And they, uh, <laugh>, no one clipped that and played that on the internet. A thumb with a mustache. Yes. A thumb. Listen, a guy named Johann Lopez called you a thumb with a mustache. Wow. <laugh>.

Sevan Matossian (26:30):

I was feeling familial like it was my mom. I was talking, that was the, uh, soonest I’ve ever had to take a pee break in an entire show.

Travis Bagent  (26:41):

<laugh>. Yeah, I was thinking I don’t even if I ever saw that before.

Sevan Matossian (26:44):

So No, it happens usually around the two hour mark, but I just had a huge, huge, uh, jug of, uh, sparkling water, big two liter of sparkling water at the, the tennis park, treating myself to some sparkling water. Okay. Um, uh, I mean, I’m trying to quit sparkling water. I hear it’s bad for your bones.

Travis Bagent  (27:04):

Yeah, I don’t, I don’t, I’m not a sparkling water fan. I don’t even know how that’s a, that

Sevan Matossian (27:09):

They don’t have sparkling water in Best Western.

Travis Bagent  (27:11):

That’s a sign of privilege in its in itself. I mean, to an utmost proportion.

Sevan Matossian (27:17):

I agree. I agree. So

Travis Bagent  (27:19):

I don’t even know what ta, I don’t even know what sparkling water tastes like. Still afraid to try it and like, it,

Sevan Matossian (27:26):

It tastes horrible.

Travis Bagent  (27:27):


Sevan Matossian (27:28):

Um, Hans Kim is the best. Get him back on. That was the fucking weirdest show ever. What are you talking about? Okay, Travis, um, uh, tell me about, uh, this oldest son of yours, uh, Tyson.

Travis Bagent  (27:41):

Sevan Matossian (27:47):

Travis Bagent  (27:51):

Oh yeah. 100% unplanned. Every single kid.

Sevan Matossian (27:57):

All four of ’em, all

Travis Bagent  (27:59):

Four of ’em was a shock. Like a heart attack.

Sevan Matossian (28:01):


Travis Bagent  (28:03):

I mean,

Sevan Matossian (28:04):


Travis Bagent  (28:05):


Sevan Matossian (28:05):

You, lemme tell you this really quick, lemme tell you this story real quick. So, uh, about about four months ago, my wife tells me she’s gone through menopause. I’m like, really? She’s like, all done. I’m like, no more chance you’re getting pregnant. She’s like, Nope. Like, holy shit, this is fucking amazing. So I, yeah, I’m, I just been

Travis Bagent  (28:22):

Still waiting for that day. This, so

Sevan Matossian (28:24):

I just,

Travis Bagent  (28:25):

Is that easy to detect? Does she know a hundred

Sevan Matossian (28:28):

Person? Well, well, she said she did. So I’ve just been going crazy, right? Just complete belligerence. Just, just whatever. I just, she’s now my playground four days ago. She goes, Hey man, I go, what? She goes, I think I might be pregnant.

Travis Bagent  (28:46):

Whoa. I’m

Sevan Matossian (28:46):

Like, whatcha are you talking about you haven’t had your period in a year? She goes, I know, but I, I, I, I just some something feels like I’m pregnant. So I played it super cool. I’m like, awesome, awesome. And she’s like, it’s not awesome. And she’s like losing her shit. And so she went to, yesterday, she went to like CVS and peed on one of those sticks. She, my wife’s like probably 47 years old, and she bought one of those sticks and then went into the bathroom at c v s, like a 16 year old girl imp peed on the stick right there in the pharmacy.

Travis Bagent  (29:12):

And there, you know, that, uh, the false negative happens all the time.

Sevan Matossian (29:16):

I’ll, I’ll let her know that. She’ll be happy to know that.

Travis Bagent  (29:18):

Yeah. Now false positive don’t happen. <laugh>, once that baby accidentally reads positive, you are it. Wow. Well, listen, so I don’t understand. Oh, I got you. So that’s, so now my uneducated self just realized that her not having her period would cause her to believe that sh after a while that she has reached menopause.

Sevan Matossian (29:42):

Yeah. Like she does, she’s not dropping any more eggs. Got you. I gotcha. And then all of a sudden she thinks she’s pregnant, but it, yeah. Anyway. No, Mason, we don’t, I she tested negative. Shut it.

Travis Bagent  (29:53):


Sevan Matossian (29:54):

<laugh>. Nice. Okay, so unplanned. He’s unplanned. Un

Travis Bagent  (29:58):

Absolutely unplanned.
