Alain is over teaching me how to quickly cut out clips from ZEN PODCASTS (which are sometimes over 3hrs long) so we figure it’s a good thing to highlight the juciest bits! In this clip we discuss the clubbing scene (well, what I remember of it!). Hope you guys enjoy!
Stephen Wassef is a founding member of Acquired Taste, a tight knit Sydney based car crew who now have plans to create a brand. We discuss VW Golfs, Electric Cars, Bitcoin, Acquired Taste, Tokyo, the morals of being a tobacconist, vape, bodybuilding and old school values.
PS: Audio goes out of synch on this one. I’m making moves to get rid of the webcam as they can only record in variable frame rate and that’s the sync issue right there.
PPS: Chief had NO plans to be on the podcast at all and in the end both of us are glad he decided to change his mind. He’s a shy and quiet guy in real life but I promised I’d do more of the talking. Listening back it’s obvious Chief had more to say but couldn’t as I just kept cutting him off (more so than previous podcasts I think!). I’ve had a few people suggest I let my guests talk more. I 100% agree!
It’s been interesting to read some of the feedback in relation to the podcast I did with young 20yr old Lachlan Doherty earlier this week.
I checked out Lachy’s facebook feed to go hunting for comments on our video, but I had to scroll past a shit tonne of memes he’d posted since we did our podcast. What’s the go with posting a few memes a day? What’s the go with memes?!
I finally scroll down enough to find where he had posted our podcast and wow the feedback… it’s troll city. Memes of the podcast, his “mates” paying him out. A girl suggesting she wanted to listen but on finding out it was 2hrs long decides to mock it as it’s too long… on top of that I get private messages from a young guy who says I’m not Australian and that there’s a right wing movement growing of native white European descendant Australians getting the shits that guys like me are representing Australia.
Lachy seemed like a pretty mature 20yr old, but the reality is that he’s surrounded by immaturity and it’s sad to see tbh. It may be a joke to them, but I see it as bullying, patronising, negative, a waste of time and energy and above all just bad vibes.
I 100% feel for any young person trying to “make it” as it must be harder than ever to surround yourself with good people these days (not to mention burning bridges is something you get better with with age so it may take young people a LOT longer to ditch “friends” who are really just cloak and dagger mates that will stab you in the back when the time is right).
42yr old me chatting with a 20yr old car guy. Lachlan Doherty is a young kid who I’ve met through the car scene. He helps the community where he can and seems like a genuinely good guy. When he wanted to catch up I thought I’d put him in front of the mic! We talk investment property, EOMM, Defects, Casey Neistat, Modern Geniuses, Religion, Achieving Goals, S15’s and more.
