#997 – Shadow Ban is back | Live call in SHOW w/ Hunter McIntyre

Sevan Matossian (00:00):

In the chat. Bam. We’re live. Audrey. Good morning, coach. Ken. Good morning. When I first started getting a shadow banned on Instagram, I didn’t realize that people thought I was making that up. I didn’t realize that saying you were shadow banned was a conspiracy theory. Something that conspiracy theorists say that only right wing wing nuts say, and then look at. Wow Trip. You see that? Yeah, I’m watching the numbers right now. This is so crazy what YouTube has done to us. Anyway, eventually, eventually more and more people started being like, Hey dude, you’re Shadow band. And the most obvious thing that everyone would see is if you would try to tag me in anything in Instagram, my name wouldn’t be highlighted. It would be gray or you’d have to type out Savon Matsi and the whole thing in order to find my account. But also every day I was receiving screenshots from people who would try to follow me on Instagram saying, are you sure you want to follow this account?


This person puts a lot of misinformation out. And it was just constant like that. And it would be really funny when people would be like, oh my God, shadow ban is real. Like, dude, I’ve been shadow banned for two fucking years. Or people would try to tell me the shadow ban was over because they could see my stories again. Hey, you guys see that number up there? 56. We haven’t seen a number that low and yesterday’s show, we saw 30. We haven’t seen numbers that low in two years and yesterday two people immediately told me and one of ’em being including my wife, Hey, we can’t find your live show. Right When we went live and my wife obviously watches it every morning or puts it on, and then two people in the chat yesterday said that they’ve been unsubscribed to our YouTube channel. And what we think it is is the two videos we made two clips. Hey, go on, Caleb. We made two clips from a show where the discussion was about Navy Seal Reading Hour, Navy Seal Reading Hour at the library. You know how they’ll bring in these men who’ve served their country and they read to kids the Navy. You guys have that right Navy Seal Reading Hour. It

Caleb Beaver (02:12):

Honestly sounds like they have an hour for themselves to read, to learn how to read. That’s what it sounds like, because they’re not

Sevan Matossian (02:21):

It is. It is. If you’re a child and you want to come watch a Navy Seal, learn how to read. Dave Castro will be at the Watsonville Airport Airport. Dave Castro will be at the Watsonville Library tomorrow between three and four, and you can watch him learn how to read. Anyway, it’s crazy. Yeah. Look at Sarah Cooper, no notification for the show. Incredible Dick butter. Nice howitzers, Caleb. Bam. Arrested. No license. Audrey, I want Beaver to read to me before bed. Doesn’t everyone want a beaver? Nice beaver before bed. How do I unsubscribe? Don’t worry about that. Yeah, just subscribe. God, it’s so bizarre. I cannot believe that that happened. Yeah, look, there’s already more people on this show than there was yesterday, but I still haven’t seen 88. When it drops below a hundred, I am like, wow, it’s so rare. 96 would be really low and yet this thing won’t get over 93. What a trip. What a trip that they’re doing this John Williams, a shadow banning due to election season. Here we go again. No shit. Is that it?


I saw a ridiculous headline, a pretty funny headline, and someone was saying that’s because of election season two, where they’re going to start telling you who’s killing who based on race, the headline’s going to be two white men kill six black people. They’re saying that that’s going to come big time in the media. I wonder if that’s true. They need the divide. Yeah, they need the divide. Wow. Wow, wow, wow. I do want to mention you guys. On September 30th, I will be filming at Craig Howard’s gym in Pleasanton, California. I do also believe that Mr. Susa will be there also. Athena’s putting on a seminar there through her Scaled Nation business organization, and I don’t even know what the name of the seminar is exactly called, but it is a coaches course, not different in its spirit than the kids course that CrossFit does or the master’s course that they used to do, which my mom said was even as good or better than the level one, the master’s course. And this course is specifically designed on how to work with large bodied human beings. There it is. Oh, I got it right. Working with large bodies.


I don’t think they mean tall either. And if you’re short, don’t feel offended either. You could design a program that’s for small bodied individuals, which would be code for anorexic. Anyway, I am very excited about this. We all know that this country, the world is eating more and more and more and more shitty food and our lifestyles have made it so that human beings are carrying around more weight than ever. Even just that the two year lockdown, we did the average American put on 29 pounds. Don’t even worry about that weight. Worry about the fact of what that’s going to do to your health, your joints, your fucking vascular cardiovascular system, all that shit, just not your brain. Mike Kain points out that President Trump would also be a good if you were to work with the president of the United States before you did coach the president of the United States at 6 3 2 15.

Mattew Souza (06:20):

Two 15.

Sevan Matossian (06:23):

He’s like two 70, right?

Mattew Souza (06:25):

I was two 15. Some say more than two 15. It’s two 15. Good Lord.

Sevan Matossian (06:34):

I keep thinking I’m five five, but I really got to measure myself again. I heard Colton say on the show the other day that he’s five four. There’s no way I will lie though. I thought I was a secure man. I will not say I’m five four. There’s no way.

Mattew Souza (06:47):

Don’t you do it.

Sevan Matossian (06:48):

Do I look five four, Caleb, when you stand next to me, do I seem five, four? Be honest.

Mattew Souza (06:55):

No, I think 5, 5, 5 6 is probably a reasonable

Sevan Matossian (06:57):

Guess. Thank you. You get to stay.


I am very excited to go there and film the seminar. I enjoy doing that. I enjoy being in that environment. We’ll be filming all the lectures. Anyone who’s there, who’s willing to talk to us, who tells us why they took the course, what they think about the course, and at the end, what they got out of it. And then that’ll be our gift and our participation to my dear friend Athena Perez and the Scaled Nation community. And I’m just pumped for it. I’m pumped for it and I really enjoy doing it. I knew she was going to be in the area. It’s a good excuse to go up there and see her. And I feel like I’m myself when I’m doing that, so it’s good. And I’m sure I’m going to learn a lot. So there we go. Also, the two Brainin business survey. Chris Cooper two Brainin is the largest gym consulting company in the world.


Comes out of Canada. Extremely successful. Tons. Actually, in all the years I’ve been around, I have never heard anything negative about two. Brainin, not even once and every year they put out what’s called the state of the industry report. They’re now taking information from affiliate and gym owners around the world to put together that beautiful state of the industry report. They do. I don’t have it here with me. It’s back at the main studio. There’s a Link two Brain Business survey link. Do we put that in the show notes or do we have show notes? Every show. Okay, so you go back to if you’re an affiliate owner or you own a gym, it would be great if you could take the survey and participate in it. And

Mattew Souza (08:41):

It’s easy, harmless. It takes just a couple minutes.

Sevan Matossian (08:44):

You took it. Yeah,

Mattew Souza (08:45):

I took it.

Sevan Matossian (08:46):

Because you’re a gym owner.

Mattew Souza (08:47):

Because I’m a gym owner and I’m participating in the survey. Of course.

Sevan Matossian (08:52):

Alright, you’re good. And then finally, paper Street Coffee. Use code seven Swol, get your swollen on sleep. Eight birth fit. Take your peptides from peptides. Okay. Bills have been paid. Oh, and then let’s, I’d also like to play from Instagram, S M T P training a spokesperson. Will Branstetter, have you seen the commercial?

Mattew Souza (09:23):

Yeah. Wait, maybe not commercial.

Sevan Matossian (09:25):

Maybe not. Why is Will so funny? Is he trying to be funny or is this like,

Mattew Souza (09:30):

Oh, I just love him more than Brian now that’s interesting.

Sevan Matossian (09:33):

Wow. I see. He’s a younger version of, he’s like Brian 2.0, superficially speaking. Probably has less hair on his back than Brian, but Will, it’s coming. You’ll get old too. Okay,

Mattew Souza (09:50):


Speaker 4 (09:51):

When I was inside, I just smelled some of really bad Bo and I was actually kind of happy about it. You guys ever heard the term Necking? Taylor saw in his honeymoon. He’s a Mexico, so today it’s just me. Someone call 9 1 1. It’s been a murder. I’m the victim. There’s a version as written. I’m shaking. Alright, here we go.

Sevan Matossian (10:16):

Pre seven day trial, SMTP 60, self-made training program. Look at that.

Mattew Souza (10:25):

Look at that.

Sevan Matossian (10:27):

You think he shot that with the fancy camera or that’s just all iPhone technology.

Mattew Souza (10:30):

Fancy camera. Knowing Will is probably fancy camera. Yeah, for sure. With a gimbal probably carry it around

Sevan Matossian (10:37):

Sound. Not even needed. Not even needed. Right. For that shot, that shoe.

Mattew Souza (10:42):

Some lighting. It’s got the reflectors. Pull that all the stops.

Sevan Matossian (10:47):

Strong opening line. I love the smell of Bo. Right? Kind of gets your attention. Well, and you’re kind like, well, I can’t believe he said that out loud. I kind of like Somebo too. Or he’s gross, but right away you form an opinion. You are either with him or against him at that point.

Mattew Souza (11:00):

Yep. Then he brings old soul with the necking comment.

Sevan Matossian (11:05):

I don’t even know what that, that’s over. That

Mattew Souza (11:07):


Sevan Matossian (11:08):

What? Necking Does that mean Naked?

Mattew Souza (11:10):

No, that means Naked out.

Sevan Matossian (11:12):

Oh. Oh, neck. Oh yeah. Okay. Yeah. Okay. Sorry. You’re right. I do know what that is

Mattew Souza (11:16):

With the fonts. Okay.

Sevan Matossian (11:20):

I would like to give an honorable mention to Neck. Neck term. Me.

Mattew Souza (11:26):


Sevan Matossian (11:27):

Do it. Oh, when you out,

Mattew Souza (11:28):

I caught y’all necking him back of the truck.

Sevan Matossian (11:31):

Oh, necking iced tea for everybody. And cough syrup.


I had forgotten about this until I heard yesterday. You guys have heard of whooping cough and there’s an injection that kids get for whooping cough. Whooping cough, acellular, pertussis. What is it? Acellular pertussis. Okay. Yeah, that I was reading yesterday. And this about it. And basically the medication they give for it is no cure at all. Zero. It doesn’t reduce transmission or cure at all. And it’s only to alleviate symptoms. And I remember that being about our most recent little situation too, that if you have kids, you know how people have said to me, Hey, I don’t want your kids around my kids because your kids haven’t taken, aren’t 49 ERs fans. Right? But the truth is the opposite for two reasons. You don’t want people who are 49 ERs fans around your kids if you have to make a choice, if you had to lean one way or another because one, a lot of the things they’ve taken mask the symptoms, but don’t mask the transmission.


And then also, you always have to remember shedding is a real thing. Several of these things, the one that starts with a P are only still in existence on planet Earth because of shedding. What is shedding sheddings? When you take a medicine and it makes you sick and then you start spreading the sickness and everyone who’s a 49 er fan, regardless of which, or it’s any N F L team, your fandom does give you a little piece of the sickness. And I was reading a lot about shedding yesterday. I didn’t realize what a big thing it is. It is actually the leading cause of the P and anyone can find that on Google. I’m surprised they haven’t hidden that.


But be smart if you have kids, do your research, do your research. Honorable mention for Rich Ronning, he released his podcast talking about Leadville with Rory and on Ro Can Channel Will’s. Nice little flare there. And hello. And hello. And it was kind of cool because he came on the show and talked about it and a lot of people wouldn’t have done that. Maybe there’s even some people, I’m making this up, but maybe there’s some people on his media team who would be like, don’t go on there first talk about it here first. Don’t leak. But he didn’t care. You don’t care. It’s rich. He doesn’t care. Talk about it here. I talk about it there. I’m 2 15, 6 3, 6 3, 2 15. I don’t care. Talk about it anywhere. Yeah. And I just thought that that was cool. He don’t care. He don’t care. Tyson bein played football yesterday. Oh, you know who I wanted to send a link to? Maybe could we send a link to Hunter McIntyre? Can we? Yeah. Yeah, sure. Oh, thank you. Why not? I just want to see if he pops on. I want to see, I’m curious what he’s doing. Did I say anything? Should I just drop the link and let it be? Yeah, you can just drop the link and let it be. Okay.


So speaking of Tyson Bejan. Wow, that’s funny. We have a c e o shirt that matches the color of the Chicago bears. That’s weird.

Mattew Souza (15:00):

They’re a little similar, but definitely different.

Sevan Matossian (15:02):

Thank you. For purposes. Same, same. But for legal purposes different. Different,

Mattew Souza (15:07):


Sevan Matossian (15:07):

Yeah. So what happened yesterday? Someone said he was seven foot 14 through an interception, but he did hit a guy in the numbers in the end zone and also he ran one in. Did he do good? Is he good? Is

Mattew Souza (15:24):

He good? I don’t know.

Caleb Beaver (15:26):

I think he did well. The interception kind of sucks, but his completions were, he’s like 50% on completions.

Mattew Souza (15:33):

Is he the official backup quarterback now?

Caleb Beaver (15:36):

We don’t know yet. Twitter says that he is, but obviously that’s Twitter.

Sevan Matossian (15:44):

Matt Reynolds, I watch Rich’s podcast after yours. Same stories. I prefer listening to your podcast Naked because of the lack of judgment and when I listened to Rich’s podcast, I was clothed. Oh, okay, cool. I like that. I’m flattered. Matt Reynolds has spoken.

Mattew Souza (16:05):

I thought you were going to say I’m flat. Earthed, that comment did

Sevan Matossian (16:09):

Itself. You can’t pigeonhole me. Tyson bet. Here he is, ladies and gentlemen

Caleb Beaver (16:14):

In the game

Speaker 5 (16:17):

To test himself all the time when he’s off the field in downtown on the move, Tyson Beget does it again. And another Russian in touchdown for the rookie from Martinsburg, West Virginia.

Sevan Matossian (16:31):

That was cool. Hey, did they win?

Caleb Beaver (16:34):

No, they lost. I think he scored the only touchdown though.

Sevan Matossian (16:40):

Are you allowed to do that as a rookie or even just not even sure if you’re on the team. The way he jumped into, let the fans fondle him, and then he does a little, I saw he did a little dance where he puts his hands up like this and he bumps cities with the guy across from him.

Caleb Beaver (16:55):

Oh yeah. Coming up here. This,

Sevan Matossian (17:05):

Yeah. Yeah. Did they plan that? He’s like, Hey dude, if I score a touchdown, let’s bump titties.

Caleb Beaver (17:15):

Usually they’ll fuck around in practice and then just, that’s the celebration.

Sevan Matossian (17:21):

Wow. Wow. This is going to be a tough interview. Wow. Oh, he at the CrossFit games? Yeah. Oh, what? That’s one of my favorite, most favorite interviews of all time. Dude, my biceps started twitching. I can’t tell if I’m shaking because I’m scared or if I’m just too much alcohol yesterday. What the fuck? Did

Caleb Beaver (17:54):

He just bounce out or did we drop him in the

Sevan Matossian (17:56):

Studio? No, no. I think he said what he had to say. Dude, I didn’t even hear. Don’t be so judgmental. Neither did I. It

Caleb Beaver (18:04):

Was all in the glasses.

Sevan Matossian (18:07):

You’re going to have to, yeah, the glasses were incredible.

Caleb Beaver (18:09):

That was awesome. Yeah.

Sevan Matossian (18:10):

Can you go to Amazon and see middle finger glasses?

Caleb Beaver (18:14):

Yeah, let’s find them.

Sevan Matossian (18:15):

Wow. Wow. That was something, huh? That was awesome. Oh goodness. That’s no Colton. That’s no Colton Merton’s. No.

Caleb Beaver (18:24):

On eBay for seven bucks.

Sevan Matossian (18:27):

Oh, but not on, you can’t buy 200 pack on Amazon for like a dollar.

Caleb Beaver (18:32):

You get a two pack from Walmart. Let’s see,

Sevan Matossian (18:37):

A two pack. Walmart sells middle finger glasses. Wow.

Caleb Beaver (18:42):

Oh, you can only get ’em in the single pairs.

Sevan Matossian (18:49):

Oh, look at that. 13 bucks. He’s bawling, huh? God, those are incredible.

Caleb Beaver (18:55):

He probably got ’em up eBay for seven.

Sevan Matossian (18:57):

Oh, them D B E shades. Wow. Oh my goodness.

Caleb Beaver (19:08):

I’m confused as to why there’s five fingers on them. It doesn’t show a thumb. It’s like there’s literally five fingers. Is the thumb up there too? You know what I

Sevan Matossian (19:23):

Mean? There’s something called creative freedom or something creative. It falls under creative freedom.

Caleb Beaver (19:33):


Sevan Matossian (19:33):

Okay. I want to get, I forgot to get Pedro. I better write it on my hand. Like little kid Pedro earphones and then D B e. I need to buyer those. Did you just look up middle finger glasses?

Caleb Beaver (19:46):

Yeah. Here, I’ll send the link in private chat.

Sevan Matossian (19:48):

Thank, that’s cool. That’s really cool. Alright,

Caleb Beaver (19:58):

Those are great.

Sevan Matossian (20:01):

Just to get back to that. Oh, poetic license. What did I say, Ken? What would a poetic What I, creative license. Poetic license.


Poetic license. I think poetic license is when I said those guys bounce their titties off each other because you don’t usually use titties for men. It’s a sex specific, or as they say in the hood. Gender specific. I don’t say that in the hood. They say in the hood. Gender specific titties are gender specific, but poetic license is when I use it for guys, it kind of shows that I don’t give a fuck. You know what I mean? It’s like poetic license saying I’m so secure in my manness that I could refer to dudes having titties. I That’s poetic. What was some creative and political commentary sprinkled in there? Peppered, peppered, sprinkled. So sprinkled. Feminine girls use sprinkles. I pepper. Yeah, I pepper.


I just gave everyone a full lesson. Thank you, Ken, for being my assistant in that. You threw up an AlleyOOP. I dunked that shit. Number two, shadow banning, I don’t know if you call this shadow banning, but this guy, I follow him on Instagram and he’s against child abuse. I got to be really careful what I say. I dunno if you’re allowed to be against child abuse, but this guy’s against child abuse and he’s letting you know. He’s also against child abuse but’s. Also, his account can’t be shown to non followers. Look at that fucking shadow ban. I haven’t seen this. This is from Instagram. They now have a new form of, they’re so creative in their banning. They’re so creative. This account be shown to non followers. They just cap your shit off. They just cap you Papa cap. Okay, here we go.

Speaker 6 (21:59):

They’re sick of these modern day aristocrats who work at big tech and get paid exorbitant amounts of money and then turn around and abuse the power that they have to then try and control what we free people are allowed to discuss. Instagram is telling me that their technology found my content doesn’t follow their guidelines.

Sevan Matossian (22:22):

Our technology found Your content doesn’t follow our guidelines. That’s crazy. Our technology. Our technology. Don’t blame us. Blame the think. Please. I don’t even know what the fuck that means. Our technology does that. Don’t blame us. Blame the machine. My calculator says seven plus four is 17. That’s what my technology says. You’re right. I don’t even my technology talk about outsourcing discernment. Okay, go on.

Speaker 6 (23:06):

More specifically, they’re telling me that my profile bio is what may go against these guidelines. Do you want to know what my profile bio says? Moderate gay Republican, freedom lover, classical, liberal, and then a link to my piano compositions.

Sevan Matossian (23:21):

Okay. Pause. Somehow a link to my piano compositions. Maybe that’s where the confusion is. If they thought it was his penis compositions common mistake. Sometimes my technology gets those two confused penis and piano. I mean that’s just my technology. Can’t fucking believe this is real. I cannot believe, do you guys know anyone who works at Instagram or at Facebook?

Mattew Souza (23:59):

No, but we could grab a camera, put on some suits and ask to see who we could speak

Sevan Matossian (24:03):

With. Oh, Nelly. I regret it. I regret even opening this subject.

Mattew Souza (24:07):

Subject. Yep. You want to go there? I’m game. I’ve been game since our friend has suggested it

Sevan Matossian (24:19):

A dislike for, I have a prejudice and discriminatory feelings and emotions about the people who work there without even meaning them. My technology doesn’t like them. My biceps twitching again, my good biceps

Mattew Souza (24:40):


Sevan Matossian (24:43):

That sucks, right?

Mattew Souza (24:45):

Yeah, but whatcha going to do about it?

Sevan Matossian (24:48):

Put on a suit.

Mattew Souza (24:53):

I mean, Dan made a good point of the comments too. It’s a private company. They get to choose who they serve cake to.

Sevan Matossian (24:59):

Here’s the thing, Dan, I used to think along those lines too, and there is, once you have a contract with the US government or you’re in business with the US government, certain rules of the constitution, you have to start following. And one of them is around the freedom of speech. It doesn’t work like that. Once you get in bed with the government, some of your rights as a private citizen or as a private business are no longer there. So I think it’s like,

Mattew Souza (25:42):

What do you mean government though? We all pay taxes.

Sevan Matossian (25:46):

It’s like if you bake cakes,


You, I don’t even know if this is true what I’m about to say, but it’s not cut and dry like that. Let me just say it like that. They lose some of their rights as a private company. Once you start doing business with the government, once you start doing business with the government, there’s certain rules you have to follow that are the same rules that the US government has to follow. So the US government can’t stop you from crossing a bridge in your car because you’re gay or straight or because you’re allowed to hate gay people or you’re allowed to hate straight people or you’re allowed to hate white people or you’re allowed to hate black people mean those are just, but I think once you’re in bed with the government, once you’re,

Mattew Souza (26:30):


Sevan Matossian (26:31):

Car is being used to deliver government packages, then you have to follow the rules of whatever the law of the land. And I think they have a shit load of lawsuits open regarding that.

Mattew Souza (26:50):

Yeah, I mean they should be the telephone companies, right?

Sevan Matossian (26:53):

The telephone companies.

Mattew Souza (26:55):

Yeah. I could call you and we could say whatever we want and if the telephone technology picks up our conversation doesn’t like it can’t just shut us off. It’s like a platform for communication.

Sevan Matossian (27:08):

Cave Astro is saying Facebook is not a private company. But I think I took the liberty to understand what Dan is saying, that even though it’s traded publicly, it’s still a private company. You know what I mean? It’s a bunch of people own it. I think that’s the, and then of course there’s this Sean Sullivan points out, not if you’re big pharma, they get to do whatever they want with no consequence. Well, yeah, they have their own special laws too, which is just bizarre.

Mattew Souza (27:43):

They mean politicians. Yeah. Whole set of rules for them.

Sevan Matossian (27:58):

Well, we’re at 180 3 now. I am so bummed though that the YouTube channel got smacked around.

Mattew Souza (28:04):

Yeah, but it seems to be coming back right now. Those numbers weren’t nearly as bad as they were yesterday.

Sevan Matossian (28:10):

So you know what we did, being the strong-minded, value driven, high integrity people that Caleb, myself and Susa are, you know what we did when we saw that our videos were possibly throttling back the station, we erased. Like I made ’em private. I’m like, no, take them down. You know what though, you guys, I think we should put, can we go to Rumble? Can you check our Rumble channel real quick? Because I haven’t been sending us over to Rumble every morning. I’ve been lazy, just gotten tired of it. But I had something set up automatically that everything we post, Caleb goes to Rumble. And I’m wondering, can you, what if you type in on Rumble, the seven Cop podcast, and then you type in the word the P word, P e r v e R T. I think that’s the word. I think that word is what got us jacked. What do you think? You know what’s funny is a couple of days earlier, Hiller warned me about that. So I’m going to type in Rumble.

Mattew Souza (29:17):


Sevan Matossian (29:17):

Not E R V E R T, the seven podcast. Okay. So at some point, oh,

Mattew Souza (29:24):

The live show should archive. I don’t know if it does the same with the video clips.

Sevan Matossian (29:31):

What’s crazy is that it’s still in search. It takes it to YouTube. It does do video clips. Because those shorts that you guys were putting up on YouTube, I saw them populating on Rumble. Yeah. Oh cool. I saw them not as shorts either. It’s kind of funny. They go into 16 by nine. Oh really? Yeah, but it’s still cool. I mean it’s like,

Caleb Beaver (29:50):

Oh, here I do see it. You do it. Yeah. It doesn’t pop up as if I look up seven podcast, pe, pe, word. It doesn’t.
