Greg Glassman #12 | Live Call In

Sevan Matossian (00:03):

Bam. We’re live. Good morning. Good morning, Matt. Good morning, brother. Good morning. Good to see you. Eaton Beaver. Good morning, Matt. Congrats on all the success too, buddy. It’s cool what you’re doing. It’s cool what you’re doing for your gym, your community, the state of Ohio, the entire CrossFit community. I don’t have the, oh, maybe I do have the clip right here. Lemme see. Matt’s running this. If you haven’t seen couple podcasts I’ve done with Matt Shindel Decker, you got to check him out. He is running a very successful program helping a youth who are in the court system.


I’ll pull it up in the next few days, running a program that kind of grabs youth as they come out of the court system and are headed to juvenile hall. And instead they have the option to do CrossFit for several months and they can, he set up the program, so gyms all over the state of Ohio and all over the country can sign up and try to get programs like this in their area so that the kids don’t go to juvenile hall, don’t become part of the revolving door. Instead get put into a CrossFit class that they do regularly, that their probation officer, the judge, their whole basically circle of people end up participating in. And it has a crazy success rate. And that’s led to relationships that Matt has with the entire state of Ohio, which led to him recently doing a workout that the most exciting part isn’t necessarily that they did the workout, but that emails are now going out to every single highway patrol officer in the state of Ohio, maybe every single officer in the state of Ohio notifying them of CrossFit workouts. So it’s cool stuff. It’s probably worth just bringing Matt on once a month and get updates on that program. It’s so cool.


Mr. Weeded, good to see you, Glenn. Hey, Jan. Yo, what’s up dude? Morning fake. Craig Howard is here. Yep, I see you. Thank you for accommodating my little eyes. I was thinking, I was watching the president of Instagram, who I’m not a fan of, even in the slightest. He is the most woke of woke. He’s a scary man. He is akin to something out of being a James Bond villain or something that of Germany World War ii. He is a scary, scary man. He’s not a good dude. And I was watching him and he was being interviewed, super beta, super racist, all that crazy woke stuff. All the craziest, the crazy woke stuff. And I’m watching him being interviewed and I’m watching him drink a coke during the interview. Him and the podcast host are drinking Cokes. And I remember when I used to be, the only reason why I’ve ever used tobacco or nicotine is because someone else was using it. Hey, good morning, Greg. Good

Greg Glassman (03:18):


Sevan Matossian (03:19):

I never just walked into a store and bought a pack of cigarettes. It was always like I was at a party somewhere and someone was smoking, and that’s how I tried smoking. And that’s how I know that that’s how spreads one of your friends is drinking a coke


When you exercised. And that’s basically, basically how that works. And I was thinking about, and you wear Nike clothes and then your friends would wear Nike clothes, and that’s how that worked. If for example, when Nike’s one of those companies that mandated the injection for their employee, you didn’t take the injection, they fired you, you lost your job. And so that’s kind of what we’re all doing here on the planet. We’re all signaling each other through our behaviors on what people should and shouldn’t do. And that being said, I was thinking about just recently, just in the CrossFit space, that whole incident that’s quite hilarious happened on Lauren Fisher’s Instagram account where people were upset because she played a, I forget even what the name of the movie is, but the name of that movie where Robert Downey Jr. Plays a black guy, and then Ben Stiller says the word retard and people are upset about something as subjective as painting your face black and the word retard. And yet you have people, leaders in the fucking community drinking coke, which is a tropic of thunder. Thank you. Which by the way, I think is just a stupid movie. I don’t know why so many people like it, but it’s amazing. That’s something that’s objective in real. Like drinking coke is bad for you, gets a pass, but something that’s subjective, like calling someone a retard gets people up in a frenzy. It makes me think that we’re surrounded by retards. That’s my morning thoughts. Hi.

Greg Glassman (05:09):

What’s up kid?

Sevan Matossian (05:10):

What’s up, dude?

Greg Glassman (05:12):

So Lauren Fisher get in trouble

Sevan Matossian (05:15):

Kind of. Yeah. I mean they tried to, every Tom, Dick and Harry who was offended, came over to her Instagram account and was like, you should be ashamed of yourself. And what’s worse is they even do stuff like people were saying stuff along the lines of, I’m disappointed in anyone who even follows this account. You know what I mean? Even shame people who are her friends. It is nuts. It’s nuts. These people think that they’re being kind, but they’ll just publicly roast anybody for, I don’t know what their deal is. Well, I do know what their deal is.

Greg Glassman (05:59):

What’s the Lauren Fisher web property look like?

Sevan Matossian (06:03):

What’s her Instagram account look like?

Greg Glassman (06:05):


Sevan Matossian (06:07):

I’ll show you. She is someone 10 years ago, she was big in the scene. She put on a shitload of followers. I mean, she has a massive account bigger than most of the superstars in the sport even. But I think kind of her claim to fame is she was supposed to be the every girl’s girl. She was one of the first ones that talked about like, Hey, I don’t have a perfect body. Or I started when I was young. Yeah, it’s kind of your standard CrossFit account. Her working out, her getting married, her pushing product, you know what I mean?

Greg Glassman (06:46):


Sevan Matossian (06:48):

Her and her boyfriend, her boyfriend’s really cool foreign dude. Yeah, it that’s a pretty normal, you know what I mean? I think I don’t follow her closely, but as I recall, she’s a big pro girl. Girls can do things, you know what I mean? That’s kind of her angle. I don’t want to go as far as to say she’s woke. I don’t follow her closely, but usual, it does seem like the woke eat the woke. Oh, here, I’ll play you the clip here. Here it is. It’s right here. This is it. This is what people are upset about.

Speaker 3 (07:24):

What do you mean check it out?

Sevan Matossian (07:27):

Sorry. Hold on a second. I missed the best part. I, let’s see if I can, did you ever see that movie, Greg?

Greg Glassman (07:35):


Sevan Matossian (07:37):

You’re not missing

Greg Glassman (07:38):

Out. I know. It was well received.

Sevan Matossian (07:40):

Yeah, people love it. How do I get out of here

Speaker 3 (07:47):

Ever? Sissy Young, everybody knows you never go full. Check it out.

Sevan Matossian (07:55):

So that’s it. That’s the clip. The guy says, everyone knows you never go full retard. And then Ben Stiller goes, what do you mean? And then all these people are like, every mom and dad or brother or sibling with someone who has down syndrome chimed in and said, you’re basically despicable. It’s like, dude, those are the last people I would think, by the way, who would chime in? I thought that they would want to be like, Hey, I don’t want a word that’s going to offend my kid. It’s cool. It’s fine. But anyway, that’s that just

Greg Glassman (08:29):

Made, I would’ve figured that a Lauren Fisher website would’ve no words on it. Nothing spoken,

Sevan Matossian (08:36):

Just all pictures.

Greg Glassman (08:38):

And then look, she included a little soundtrack with some words that it fucked her up from words. She doesn’t need ’em. They don’t help her just

Sevan Matossian (08:51):

Go pictures. Yeah. Stick to

Greg Glassman (08:55):

Why risk with fucking words.

Sevan Matossian (09:00):

Meaning most of the people who follow her probably are just are picture book kind of people.

Greg Glassman (09:04):

It’s a visual thing. She’s a visual thing.

Sevan Matossian (09:07):

Yeah. Yeah. Okay. Fair, fair. They got some words. Talk

Greg Glassman (09:11):

About memorable Lauren Fisher quotes.

Sevan Matossian (09:16):

What you’re saying is highly offensive, Greg.

Greg Glassman (09:20):

No, I mean, it’s like she’s a visual property.

Sevan Matossian (09:25):

I agree. Well, in her mind too, also, and probably in a lot of people’s minds around her too, she’s also like,

Greg Glassman (09:34):

It’s like you won’t believe what the pet house pet of the Month said. It’s unbelievable. Look what she’s done to her career. And someone said, well, who let her talk? Why did she have to say anything?

Sevan Matossian (09:44):

Well, she’s also a woman power persona. You know what I mean? Hey, look what women can do. Pardon me?

Greg Glassman (09:51):

She does that with pictures, not thoughts.

Sevan Matossian (09:52):

Right, right. Good point. Good point. Hey, did you see

Greg Glassman (09:59):

The, there’s a good chunk of the community that they’re celebrated for their physical appearances and capabilities, and that’s what they’re about. And it’s unfair to expect them to use words or use them intelligently, thoughtfully, or meaningfully.

Sevan Matossian (10:19):

Or in this circumstance,

Greg Glassman (10:23):

Would you buy a parent and be pissed off? He couldn’t do your fucking taxes.

Sevan Matossian (10:27):


Greg Glassman (10:28):

That’s your problem.

Sevan Matossian (10:30):

But Greg, in this instance, it’s her audience. That’s her audience is also not prepared to handle words.

Greg Glassman (10:40):

Words. They’re not word people. That’s why you’re a Lord Fisher fan because you don’t like words.

Sevan Matossian (10:45):

Right. Clock. The woke went full retard on the never go full retard clip. Seems like some sort of milestone has been reached. Adam Lauren was the first young hot CrossFitter when all the women were a little older in the beginning. Yeah, she was really young, right? She was like 17 and she had a brother also in the space kicking ass.

Greg Glassman (11:17):

Similar. Not really a word guy.

Sevan Matossian (11:21):

Right? Did you see what I sent you last night? Did you see the text I sent you? Basically, lemme see if I can find it. It was this thought I had. Is CrossFit a libertarian practice more than a fitness practice? If you had to put it in a hierarchy, would you say it’s a health practice, a libertarian practice, and then a fitness practice? Is it a libertarian practice? Do you know what I’m asking in this?

Greg Glassman (11:53):

Maybe not.

Sevan Matossian (11:57):

Meaning there’s such a high premium put on personal accountability, personal responsibility, and the outcomes make you an ideal, a libertarian in terms of what libertarian, what someone should contribute to a libertarian society that if you’re not a libertarian and you bring that thought practice, the next thing I know is there’s going to be people doing burpees for you. A progressive would be like, Hey, it’s not fair that this person has to do a hundred burpees. They’re overweight, so I’m going to do 50 of their burpees. For them, it is just not made for the victim mind and the way it led to activism, the way it started pushing up against everything that was going on in society, you know what I mean? It was pushing right up against it.

Greg Glassman (12:53):

There are ideological perversions that have trouble nesting in all kinds of systems. It’s hard to carry the lefty ethos into farming. For instance, something that requires you get up every morning at five o’clock without thought and commit to service to your animals and your project and you just don’t see, don’t see liberal farmers for the most part, they’re an anomaly.

Sevan Matossian (13:39):

Is that really true?

Greg Glassman (13:41):

For the most part?

Sevan Matossian (13:43):

Yeah. That’s crazy. Yeah.

Greg Glassman (13:48):

You got two people, one’s in a Prius and the other’s in F one 50. Let’s take a wild guess at who the Trump supporter is and who the Biden supporter would be. Now once while you get someone that’s, notice the exceptions to that,

Sevan Matossian (14:07):


Greg Glassman (14:10):

Remember when Pat got the Prius and we were like, dude, what the fuck’s the matter with you?

Sevan Matossian (14:15):

Sherwood got one.

Greg Glassman (14:16):


Sevan Matossian (14:16):


Greg Glassman (14:21):

We have a couple here in town that have traveled the entirety of the California coast, and they’re his and her. I think they have Bell jet Ranger helicopters. And for fun, they photographed the entire coast and then gave that to the state Coastal Commission and got pats on the back. But they have photographed through their and her helicopter every inch of the California coastline, I think she’s president of the Prius Club, where they sit around at nice restaurants and look down their nose at all the poor people driving cars that emit fumes comfortable that hers knits no fumes because she plugs it into the fucking wall. It’s great. It’s just

Sevan Matossian (15:18):

A couple that has, they fly helicopters together. They have two helicopters and they fly ’em together.

Greg Glassman (15:23):

The whole state does.

Sevan Matossian (15:25):

Knows of them.

Greg Glassman (15:26):

Yeah, they CrossFitters nice people. I mean, I like ’em, but their ideology is an absurdity.

Sevan Matossian (15:39):

Dan Guerrero, Sevan, you clearly don’t regularly go to affiliate Savon. Dan, I’m willing to bet that I’ve been to more affiliates in the last month than you have. Maybe you’ve been to your affiliate more than I’ve been to affiliates, but I bet you I’ve been to more affiliates than you have in the last month or the last two months, or the last three months or the last four months. How’s that?

Greg Glassman (16:01):

Yeah. I don’t know what regularly go with mean, but Dan, I think you missed that one Feels laughable.

Sevan Matossian (16:11):

It seems to be a Well, they like to pick on me. I’m not a member at an affiliate, so then they think I just never go to any affiliates. Speaking of picking on,

Greg Glassman (16:24):

I’ve dropped into five or six affiliates in the past month or two. Hello. Just drive by. Let’s swing in. Maggie and I just did that a few days ago.

Sevan Matossian (16:36):

And Maggie also belongs to an affiliate, right? In Coeur?

Greg Glassman (16:41):


Sevan Matossian (16:43):

Dan Gross. Sorry. Worked out in affiliate. All right. That’s what I thought you meant. Did you see this thing? So I used to be a big Howard Stern fan. Greg actually in introduced me to Howard Stern. This is probably back in 2009 or 10, and I was a huge, huge fan. And then the whole mass thing popped up and he started saying some crazy shit. Crazy, crazy shit. He was a fuck your freedoms guy. He was like, Hey, the only way to stop this is get the injection guy. I can’t think of, he was completely extreme. That basically locked those people inside if they’re not injected

Greg Glassman (17:24):

Chevy. He went full blown chicken little,

Sevan Matossian (17:32):

And now it looks like he’s having issues with his neurotic paranoid. Howard Stern says his fear of covid is causing fights with wife Beth. And I looked it up, and I can’t tell if it’s just a bit on his part, but sounds like he’s completely fucking freaking out again and she doesn’t want to do the game again. She’s completely over it. And so it’s causing issues in their marriage. But here’s the part that’s tripping me out.


There’s a difference between being afraid of covid and thinking it’s bad for everyone. And then there’s another thing that’s just like, Hey, he knows he’s neurotic, and yet he still, this is what’s bad about people. He still wanted society to conform to his neuroses. Do you see the difference in that? Let’s say you’re just terrified of cars, and let’s say you’re just terrified to go up in planes. You don’t ask the whole world to stop flying planes, but this guy’s acutely aware that it’s his fucking issue. He has handwashing issues, he has germ issues, he has all sorts of weird issues like that. And yet he would go on his platform, which is second largest platform in the world. He had 30 million regular listeners and start spouting stuff like, Hey, fuck your rights, everyone. Take the injection. You shouldn’t be allowed outsider in public unless you take the injection. Fuck your freedoms. He was on the Arnold Schwarzenegger tip. It’s crazy. It’s gross. It makes him completely unlikable to me. I can forgive someone for their own paranoia, their own issues, but then to start pushing them on everyone in society, he knows better.

Greg Glassman (19:07):

He became less interesting through Covid.

Sevan Matossian (19:11):

Do you know the last time you listened to him?

Greg Glassman (19:15):

No. It’s been years.

Sevan Matossian (19:17):

Yeah, but we used to listen to him all the time, remember?

Greg Glassman (19:21):


Sevan Matossian (19:23):

Stern has been irrelevant for a while. Did he? I wonder what the numbers are on his show.

Greg Glassman (19:30):

Yeah, I was wondering that too. I would think they’d have to be diminished.

Sevan Matossian (19:38):

Mooney Howard has a covid derangement syndrome. Bloss. He’s a victim of brainwashing machine. He’s acting dumb, but he really is a victim. He’s just not ready to deal with it. I don’t know. Not my favorite word victim, but at some point you have to, when you’re influencing more people than people are influencing you. I just can’t even give you an out with the word victim. I don’t like the word anyway, but

Greg Glassman (20:09):

Sevy, is he like McDonald’s? Has he lost listeners? I mean, I would think we’re unusual. I think there’s just a generation that isn’t interested

Sevan Matossian (20:17):

In him.

Greg Glassman (20:18):


Sevan Matossian (20:23):

Type in.

Greg Glassman (20:25):

I mean, we’ve got a generation that doesn’t go to McDonald’s.

Sevan Matossian (20:31):

Their numbers are waning too. That thing.

Greg Glassman (20:34):

Oh yeah.

Sevan Matossian (20:36):

Howard Stern. Howard Stern. Let me see. Ratings

Greg Glassman (20:45):

And the repeating on news of his paranoia. It feels like publicity for Howard.

Sevan Matossian (20:53):

Oh, like to do it to help him out.

Greg Glassman (20:55):

His PR people hit him. Fox, can we get a spot?

Sevan Matossian (21:00):

Yeah. It looks like his numbers aren’t public, but Sirius is a public company, right? I can’t find anything just with a quick search. According to Washington Post, he averaged 12 million listeners per day. Almost anyone could have access to Howard in their car radio. I think when we were listening, they were claiming 30 million a day.

Greg Glassman (21:24):

I remember 20 for quite a while.

Sevan Matossian (21:26):

Okay. How old is he now?

Greg Glassman (21:34):

69, 70

Sevan Matossian (21:38):

Looks good.

Greg Glassman (21:39):

He had a good run.

Sevan Matossian (21:40):

Yeah. 69 years. He had a great run. His wife’s 51. Beetlejuice is 55. Holy shit. I can’t believe that dude lived to 55. Did. Do you know who Novak Djokovich is?

Greg Glassman (22:00):


Sevan Matossian (22:01):

Did you see he won the US Open?

Greg Glassman (22:05):

I figured you might, but there was a guy that got beat that wasn’t supposed to To, right?

Sevan Matossian (22:10):

Oh, I didn’t follow it quite, I didn’t fall like a sports aficionado. I followed it more like Moderna was the sponsor of the US Open this year, and they had the Moderna shot of the day and all that stuff. And basically two years ago, they wouldn’t let this guy come to the United States and play. This year he comes and fucking wins it. What a cool dude. How proud would you be if that was your son stood up against the machine, right? Or just your friend, right. Stood up against the machine. Didn’t get the shot. He still flew to Australia when they told him he couldn’t come. I mean, they sent him home. I don’t think he played. They sent him home. They even, I think, threatened to jail him, didn’t take the shot and then comes and wins the Moderna US open. It’s good. They have the shot of the day and it’s kind of the joke.

Greg Glassman (23:02):

Yeah, I get it.

Sevan Matossian (23:03):

It’s him. Someone says the best thing was watching Bill Gates’ face watching Djokovich win was Bill Gates in the audience. I don’t remember where we were, but a couple days ago you had said that thing to me where it’s like, man, people will not, will avoid genetically modified food, but they’ll wait in line to get the injection. They’ll have this huge tizzy against GMOs, and yet they’re more than willing to

Greg Glassman (23:42):

Yeah, I got friends sorting to their cornflakes looking for the GMO flake. It’ll stand in line for hours to get themselves genetically modified

Sevan Matossian (23:53):

And their kids.

Greg Glassman (23:54):

Yeah. So my wife’s sorting through people to see if they’re genetically modified or not. Like cornflakes

Sevan Matossian (24:04):

Dildo. Greg is a hand cougher. You got to be kidding me. What’s the other option? What’s the other option?

Greg Glassman (24:10):

I don’t want to spray shit on my screen. And I’m here by myself. And I got this from everyone in the house who’s had it for longer than I have. So

Sevan Matossian (24:20):

That’s what happens when, well, you just had nine kids there, and now you’ve got four elbow coughing.

Greg Glassman (24:27):

There’s always someone sick about to get sick or was sick.

Sevan Matossian (24:33):

Elbow coughing. What year we’re born pre 1980. No one born pre 1980. Cough into their elbow. I do sneeze into my shirt. David Weed. Bill Gates should go to Gimo for the rest of his life. I agree. I got this. I don’t know who this lady is. Oh, Christie Knapp. I got a little, I enjoyed this. I got a little comedy piece for us this morning. Good way to get the show dinged. Here we go.

Speaker 4 (25:14):

These weren’t perfect, but I’ll tell you what. They didn’t have, there were no safe spaces.

Speaker 5 (25:21):


Speaker 4 (25:22):

Were no trigger warnings and there were no fucking peanut allergies. Well, why? Because for thousands of years, the only people who could have children were ones who could hunt for food, build shelter, and fight saber tooth tigers. Now there are people having kids who can’t eat wheat. Oh, but Christina, it’s an allergy. You don’t know. Well, I do know. I ain’t fucking a guy that’s scared of toast. Yeah. Let me tell you something. My favorite question when I go to a restaurant is when a waiter asks me, do you have any food sensitivities? I can’t fucking laugh hard enough. No boo boo. No, I, no. I don’t have zero sensitivities activities to any eighties.

Sevan Matossian (26:45):

Perfect. Christine. They didn’t

Greg Glassman (26:47):

Have, it’s good.

Sevan Matossian (26:48):

Yeah. What a good art comedy.

Greg Glassman (26:52):

We get asked, do you have any food allergies? And I said, I’m allergic to people. Allergic to shit.

Sevan Matossian (26:57):

Perfect. Hey, you think when she does that, that she’s practicing that she even practices the snort? It’s all, it’s just dialed. Is Greg wearing a MAGA hat? No, he’s not.

Greg Glassman (27:16):


Sevan Matossian (27:17):

I think that’s a bike hat. Is that a bike component? No.

Greg Glassman (27:21):

Scope people worse yet

Sevan Matossian (27:23):

For guns?

Greg Glassman (27:25):

Yeah. Yeah. Okay. And this is there. Remember everyone deployed issuing forte. Good people.

Sevan Matossian (27:34):

Sevy, your mic seems a little much. How’s that? I just lowered it. How’s that? I, is that better? I lowered my mic. Thank you for telling me nothing worse than a loud savon. You own their scopes. How’d you end up with a hat? You bought a scope, came with a hat.

Greg Glassman (27:54):

I have one of their scopes, but someone gave it to me at the games years ago,

Sevan Matossian (28:00):

And I think I remember that hat. The letters are raised, right?

Greg Glassman (28:04):

Yeah. Yeah.

Sevan Matossian (28:09):

I saw this. I thought you would like this too. I heard someone say that the reason why MJ is a better player than LeBron is because his emotional appeal. I heard a fighter saying that, that it’s important to have an emotional connection with the audience, but I saw this the other day and I thought of you. I don’t really know why, but here we go.

Speaker 6 (28:31):

I still have Jordan number one, LeBron number two, Jordan dominated the N B A and the way that LeBron has it. Jordan had two, three beats in seven years. Seven years. Everyone else who has stepped on the planet has won three P in 54 years. Once Jordan started winning, no one else could win. He kept a host of Hall of Famers from winning championships. You win. Barkley Drexler, Elijah Wine, Shaq. LeBron hasn’t done that. LeBron locked down the east for eight years. Jordan did that to the entire N B A I. Still

Sevan Matossian (29:12):

Good argument, right?

Greg Glassman (29:13):

It’s powerful. I’m biased though. I shouldn’t weigh in

Sevan Matossian (29:20):

Because he is from your era and you’re not a LeBron fan.

Greg Glassman (29:24):


Sevan Matossian (29:25):


Greg Glassman (29:26):

No. It’s LeBron on politics.

Sevan Matossian (29:31):


Greg Glassman (29:32):

And maybe specifically his accusations of that cop from that righteous shooting in Columbus where the young lady was about to pierce the sternum of another with a knife, and the cop got off quick shots and before the smoke cleared the air, he was attempting c P R on the assailant and LeBron went instantly to, I think he revealed his.
