Every morning Larry and I dig into a form or idea that has caught our eye. Our hope is that our chat inspires you to never stop thinking and possibly challenges you in a new way. If you'd like to help support the show, please visit patreon.com slash reposted. Thank you for stopping by. Full disclosure we were supposed to have Myron Mixon on today. He's a four time World Championship barbecue winner. I emailed his publicist on November 29. And we have been going back and forth. Today is May 6. As we record this is going to air on May 7, mirin, I confirmed with three of his publicist. He's going to be here today. He didn't show up to record and it just kind of makes me think just to kind of even before we started doing this, you and I have discussion sometimes before big name guests come on. I mean, early on, I think Carli Lloyd was someone we interviewed, and you're like, she's not going to show up. She's not going to show up. I had that feeling with Adam Carolla, who is one of the biggest podcasters out there. What is it about this phenomenon with a podcast now like anyone can make up a press credential or just say you have a podcast and we have maybe more credibility to get big name guests than we probably did before 2012 or whenever podcasting kind of came out. And I think that's kind of interesting that with with the internet, you can have a lot more access to people than you did before. I


Larry

mean, do you agree with that? Listen, in my runs non defense, by the way, I love that we're doing a spite show. Yeah, we're just going full spite on Myron. And he is non defense. He is the winningest man and barbecue. I mean, if I was doing his fan and barbecue, thank Larry dad. Do these guys. Wait for me? Wait 15 minutes?


Andrew Keller

Well, I mean, but yeah, I mean, you're right. You're making a joke about it. But also, it's like you hear about the most. This is definitely a spite show. You think about the most successful people out there you hear stories of like, Jay Leno, anytime people that know him call him like he calls right back or whatever, like the people who are most successful say yes to things. And I think that's, again, I'm just interested in the fact that we have access to people that we didn't before. I think growing up I thought like you would go to Los Angeles and you would take a tour and those people selling Maps to the Stars. Like that was the only way you might have a run in with a celebrity now. You can buy a website on a website builder for 20 bucks, throw it up. So you have a podcast then all of a sudden you're chatting with Olympic gold medalist, Carli Lloyd, but it's just it's crazy to me.


Larry

You know, and you're in Hollywood. So you get this right. Are you the same person on the air on the set as you are off it? Like, you know, Myron, maybe he's big time at us here because he big times, people that's what he does, or maybe his publicist for thinking positive, didn't give them the number, whatever. But like, I have had a tiny little brush with fame bit on radio stations, and people kind of want to meet me or whatever. And I hope that I'm the same person. When they meet me backstage, it's something as I am on the air, and I think that like you said, Jay Leno. Seems like he's that guy. But is Brad Pitt that guy? I don't know.


Andrew Keller

I mean, Brad Pitt doesn't seem like anything to me. So I've never run in, run into him. But I've heard this analogy. I'm not gonna take credit for it. I think Corona I heard it from the people that seem the most bubbly and fun, like have a dark deep past like Rosie O'Donnell like used to have her her talk show. And she's like, he's a cutie patootie and like, what have Tom Tom Cruise come out and then like, she came out chopped all her hair off and like, seems a little bit more aggressive than I thought her 90s persona was Ellen kind of had a thing happened last year with cuz she's always dancing and fun, and it comes out that she's not the most fun person to work with. I like I think the most successful people probably are the same ON and OFF AIR because it's hard to keep up with how you're supposed to be. You know,


Larry

he's like, so Carli Lloyd that we've had on or anybody else right? But Carly's an interesting one. Like her publicist says, Here's your call sheet today. You're going to do like 10 podcasts or 10 interviews or whatever. Here they are. And then she rolls up on our dog and pony show and I think she gives it like the legit show that it is she doesn't like you don't i don't sense any like board in her voice when she's doing it. Right. And I think can you be in like, doesn't matter if you're all sorts of bands say this like, didn't matter if you're playing to one people or a billion people. What's his name? The guy from Foo Fighters has a new documentary. Yeah, he's like, man, he opened his Foo Fighters very first big thing they did was a David Letterman. Right and they usually like a band goes on and plays one song. They played the 12 songs, but they didn't tape them all. They just played one and he's like, we just love playing music. Like just Carli Lloyd just like talking about her life that it doesn't matter. She's talking to me and you and 10 people or a billion people. That's the like legit people.


Andrew Keller

Yeah, I also I love Carli Lloyd. But it's like, it's easy to talk about yourself. We weren't saying, Hey, come on and give us a presentation on non fungible tokens. It was, hey,


Larry

that'd be me, by the way.


Andrew Keller

But yeah, I guess it's kind of a testament of if why you got into what you're doing. Dave Grohl probably got into it because he loved playing music. I think I heard a story that he went on tour with. This might not be right. He went on tour with Oh, he wouldn't This is it. He went on tour with Tom Petty. And Tom Petty, like after Nirvana broke up was like, hey, just come ride with us. And like, they were very established. And he's like, you know what, it just doesn't feel right, like, so he started the Foo Fighters who arguably might be bigger than Nirvana. But it's like, if you do what you love, you're gonna, the happiness you're doing is going to shine through versus I want to do this. Because I want to be famous. I think the actors are the most visible version of that, like, if you get into it, because you want to make money, you probably won't have a long lasting career. Even if you have some early success, you're not going to want to keep doing it.


Larry

So that we stay positive and start keep talking about Dave Grohl and not my remix in history is up today. Dave has this new documentary out called Getting the van and it's all about how bands got started. And so he had made millions of dollars with foo fighter, I mean with Nirvana, but then started the Foo Fighters. But he wanted to start out like a normal band. So we bought a van, he could have had him chartered and flown all over. But he literally bought them the old what you think of starting band van, and they drove the country and did it in that, in his point was so that they could go through the journey together of being a band that kind of started from the bottom and went to the top. And he still owns this crazy van and he drives his kids to school in it.


Andrew Keller

That's awesome. I think we've, I think we've talked about this before, but a shared traumatic experience really brought Bond's people together. I really haven't had anything like that maybe since high school sports. It's like you go through something difficult. We were talking about how you had a coach that gave you a bunch of em, ephors and whatever. And you go through this verbal abuse, but it's a shared traumatic experience. And I think that's why a lot of people get out of the military and are very close, especially if you are an active duty, you're very close and you have a bond that no one else can understand. With the people that you're on the frontlines with like Dave Grohl in the in the van. Like if you just bring someone in, it's like, Alright, here's your personal jet. I'll meet you on stage like the chemistry won't be there.


Larry

So I have all these questions about the keto diet, should I just ask you instead pronounce Quito.


Andrew Keller

Also, our shared experience, you started off in a closet and now you're in a beautiful studio, and I started off and whatever I started off in, I have an office. So we're growing but at heart, we went through our shared traumatic experience. I think keto is basically the new Atkins diet is


Larry

what's different between Atkins and keto?


Andrew Keller

I think keto you I think you're supposed to be in ketosis, which happens when you're doing intermittent fasting or, or you don't break out of ketosis. It's like a certain foods trigger that which is a biological process that your body goes through breaking down fat


Larry

because here's my thing. What was the one like like 10 years ago whatever the diet was where they like they ate I just know this guy was on any like, meat paleo, right. He ate a lot of meat right. He was eating bacon all the time and eat meat all day. Kato seems the same way. Right. Oh, keto. My theory with this is like on the Serengeti, when like, man killed like a dinosaur. He would eat meat for a lot. And then he wouldn't eat for a bunch of days, right? So our bodies were designed to eat a lot of meat, and then try to go kill the next dinosaur but it would take 10 days. So you would need for 10 days, so all you're eating is meat.


Andrew Keller

Yeah, he'd go he'd go to his wife had been working at CBS. Well, this has been a silly show. We had full mirin if you want to find out about his new book, go to Myron keto BBQ calm entry callier for the man on the Serengeti. Thanks for stopping by.
