Fair response, I think our definition (and maybe mine’s off the mark) of self-awareness is different. To my mind, self-awareness can be retrospective with the aim to improve, while emotional intelligence is the ‘in the moment’. To be clear, I agree with the examples given and salient point you make at the end, I just tend to give Bass much more benefit of the doubt than saying ‘chauvinist, a xenophobe, a poor attempt at a sensationalist’, as those are quite harsh labels imo.

Yes, it’s a silly way to refer to a silly topic, I just have far too much of it in my life. It’s probably because I have an evangelistic (is that a word?) young-earth creationist sat next to me in the office and my tolerance for the topic has hit an all-time low.

He’s kinda funny. Bass.
I’ve been debating for years to go to one of those fairs. Boardroom shows. I think theres some seminars or something? Or maybe get like a brand that doesnt exist down here. But then i’m like: ”whata fook else am i gonna do there?” You guys seem to know each other.


BUt anyway, Bird’s episode is amazing.
And Biolo’s i listened to several times. Parmenters too.

Dann Mann up next looking forward to that.

I like Bassy. He does interupt too much but overall I dig his interviews.

Shouted at Bass a little during the Dan Mann episode, because something along the lines of : 'humans grouped up together to fight against the dinosaurs' frown

Just started this one - hope he doesn't spend the entire time talking about "tribes".


I’m just here to drink some beer and ride high volume boards.

overall pretty darn good. I always like listening to stories about local guys too.

But yeah thanks to this thread I noticed Bassy interupting him quite a bit, and bassy did too. And stop with the religion. fook!

Bassy's question to Dan Mann out of the blue:

Bassy: "Do you believe in God?"

Dan Mann: "Uhhhhh, good question"

rolleyes

Zero relevance to anything they were talking about.

Dan seems like a really cool, down to earth guy.

Not too long luckily, and Dan Mann's a very interesting character, sop well worth listening to.

Fun fact: Work colleague next to me was all excited to tell me about meeting Ken Ham, and wanted to try help him to bring the ark experience to Australia (that one where they show Dinos on the boat with humans and other animals), because science. I cried myself to sleep.

Indeed. I think those definitions explain the divide in our conversation.

I'm being a bit harsh on the old boy, as those labels refer to a few specific talking points that have popped up on the show. It may be that he tries to play devil's advocate and never brings the conversation full circle, or it may be that he's just that myopic on some topics. His "America First" stuff toes a line, and usually crosses into, America>> ____. For reference, the episode about Kanoa wining the US Open. See also his depiction of Brazilian surfers. See also, his seemingly recoiling reaction to the idea that the WSL (and SIMA in an earlier episode of SPIT) would be better off if they put an emphasis on diversity.

I can't remember all the specifics, but get your point.
Hard to really know what he feels, but I sense that he's got a wicked sense of humour and indeed does play the devil's advocate, and is a contrarian by nature (something that is very much in my own nature, hence why I probably give him far more benefit haha).

As for the 'America >>' comment, I don't see that as a bad thing (within limits) and a bit of national pride is commendable. I'm saying that as a non-American btw.

Listened to Bassy's interview of Zanadu and that was pretty interesting.

Chris Mauro has a new podcast called people who surf. Peter King was awesome but not nearly long enough.

Matt always come across as cantankerous / ornery, but I quite like that about his persona. I remember the rant he was referring to ... some dude on Facebook had a good old whinge about MR surfboards / Lost colab. Did that rant come up on these forums too, or was that all FB drama?
