Summary:

In our seemingly never-ending quest to sort out the noise issues, we recorded the podcast differently this week and it sounds amazingly clear.

Chris went and found out what projects are in the works for the film crew we are with, Slate48. Our 48hr film Cabin in the Wool made it into the finals in Hamilton, and we also got nominated for 5 other awards, which is super exciting.

Chris wrote a script as well this week, which needs a lot of work, like lots. Keep tuned in to find out how that goes.

Friend of Chris’s, Victor Ahipene has released an ebook called “The Authority Handbook: The Ultimate Guide for Connecting with Industry Influencers to Boost Your Profile” Chris rates Victor highly and recommends you read this book.

Sam went to the dentist this week after finding a better dentist, he’s had half a root canal done, with the rest being done later on in the week.

He’s also been dealing with couriers all week and went to Mitre10 Mega for their gardening night to help sell giant pumpkin seedlings.

Chris has a gig as an extra for a doco set in the 80’s this week, he might be able to take his own 80’s clothing as he doesn’t throw anything out, tune in for the next podcast to hear how that went

Following on from the talk about Rocket Lab in last week’s show, we found out that their online booking system for putting things in their rockets is a very cool way of doing it on their website, better than ordering pizza.

Boeing’s CEO has thrown down the challenge of getting people to Mars and think they will be able to get there sooner than Elon Musk’s SpaceX.

We discuss if Chris will get one of the robot babies that Toyota is bringing out next year.

Chris tells us about his time in his youth when his family hung out with a real life “Ray Donovan” type character, and the mystery around his broken knee caps.

We talk a bit about the Aaron Smith toilet saga which has been blowing up big time in the media.

Chris got a phone call during the podcast, and it looks like he might be getting some contract work over the next couple of months.

Facebook marketplace is driving Chris crazy, is Facebook just getting worse as time goes by?
