This is actually my episode.

Speaker:

So,

Speaker:

Oh, how the tables have

Speaker:

turned.

Speaker:

Oh, how the turn tables

Speaker:

actually.

Speaker:

I just binged watched the office.

Speaker:

Actually.

Speaker:

It was a good time, you know, when you just that early year lull and you're just like, I'm going to watch this all.

Speaker:

the office is always a feel good until, you know, Michael Scott leaves.

Speaker:

That's when I

Speaker:

turned it back

Speaker:

I just got past that point.

Speaker:

It's a drag now.

Speaker:

It is.

Speaker:

We have an interesting episode for you today.

Speaker:

Uh, we start with some housekeeping items as usual, our usual small talk and learn a thing or two about where goosebumps comes from.

Speaker:

And after the ad break, we capped the episode with some Reddit stories from R slash let's not meet first up Boys.

Speaker:

I think you're going to be proud of all the things that I'm just going to mention right now.

Speaker:

So brace yourself.

Speaker:

You might feel a little, a feeling of euphoria.

Speaker:

Maybe you'll get goosebumps, yourself, hearing these accomplishments that we just had.

Speaker:

So I just want to say thank you to the Wiki maniacs for so much support that you've been giving us lately at this time of this recording, we've amassed over 35,000 podcast downloads.

Speaker:

Is that including YouTube?

Speaker:

And that's not including YouTube

Speaker:

yet.

Speaker:

I think we have like what, 5,005,000 something views on

Speaker:

YouTube

Speaker:

getting up there, kind of, okay.

Speaker:

We had over 10.5 million views on TechTalk the past couple

Speaker:

months,

Speaker:

that's gracious.

Speaker:

that makes me way more nervous.

Speaker:

a hundred thousand plus followers on Tik TOK.

Speaker:

we have 2000 plus followers on Spotify.

Speaker:

Almost a thousand followers on apple podcast, 400 subs on YouTube.

Speaker:

We are tarting internationally, my guys, and most notably number 68, trending all podcasts in

Speaker:

Canada.

Speaker:

Oh

Speaker:

Yeah, that's just because I listened to the show and there's only like seven of us.

Speaker:

So.

Speaker:

we have you and Alex.

Speaker:

That's good.

Speaker:

That's

Speaker:

True.

Speaker:

True.

Speaker:

distractions.

Speaker:

She listens as well.

Speaker:

So we're, we're killing it up.

Speaker:

you guys are doing the Lord's work of just listening.

Speaker:

Uh, but those are some really eye-popping numbers.

Speaker:

And we just want to truly say thank you to all the WCA maniac.

Speaker:

All the support that you've given us.

Speaker:

Speaker:

Speaker:

you yeah.

Speaker:

Or in

Speaker:

the past

Speaker:

the past, I think is much worse than the future.

Speaker:

I can do not visit our first episodes before being.

Speaker:

I think we built it up to be something it's not,

Speaker:

Yeah, that's true.

Speaker:

But then that just makes people go back and listen, which,

Speaker:

yeah.

Speaker:

They're like, oh, they just read porn.

Speaker:

That's all it is.

Speaker:

board.

Speaker:

Well, don't give it away, man.

Speaker:

We gotta get the listen.

Speaker:

so just want to say thank you for supporting us you can do so by heading over to patrion.com/cultivate network, or you can go to Reddit on wiki.com for all of these.

Speaker:

Speaker:

And now that's out of the way.

Speaker:

How has it been boys?

Speaker:

And I want to start with this though.

Speaker:

Shawn, would you like to tell we can maniacs how your.

Speaker:

I might save that for my episode

Speaker:

Okay.

Speaker:

Let's say before your episode, how have you been then?

Speaker:

Sean?

Speaker:

well today is May 2nd.

Speaker:

Three, three days before

Speaker:

my birthday.

Speaker:

Happy birthday, John.

Speaker:

happy birthday, John.

Speaker:

It is my dating anniversary with my wives when we first started dating May 2nd.

Speaker:

Love to see that.

Speaker:

Okay.

Speaker:

I have a question as two, married men, do you count your dating anniversary after you.

Speaker:

well, we were dating for like a two years before we met.

Speaker:

Yes, eight years before we were married.

Speaker:

No seven years before we were married.

Speaker:

So seven years of celebrating your anniversary.

Speaker:

it's another reason to go out.

Speaker:

You know what I

Speaker:

that's fair.

Speaker:

That's right.

Speaker:

To me, it's always been like, it's weird that you celebrate this one date and then you get married and then it's this other date.

Speaker:

celebrate that

Speaker:

too?

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

Not that you celebrate it too, but you just, I feel nobody really celebrates their date day.

Speaker:

I don't know what you call it after you get

Speaker:

I guess if you, if you didn't date for that long before getting married like that, doesn't like, you know, maybe it doesn't mean that much, but you

Speaker:

Oh, maybe, maybe once your marriage anniversary is bigger than your dating, like the amount of time you've dated, then you just celebrate the marriage anniversary.

Speaker:

Maybe that's.

Speaker:

I'm just making it up as we go here.

Speaker:

as the unmarried man,

Speaker:

Cause the unmarried man, uh,

Speaker:

you could do what you want.

Speaker:

I got time to figure that out.

Speaker:

You got some don't or do you,

Speaker:

Oh, did I get an ultimatum as per, as per last

Speaker:

Oh, yes.

Speaker:

On season

Speaker:

to

Speaker:

Josh shell.

Speaker:

Just me.

Speaker:

She broke up with the prior to getting on the show.

Speaker:

Uh, I don't know why I'm here.

Speaker:

but yeah.

Speaker:

Josh, you, oh

Speaker:

go

Speaker:

ahead.

Speaker:

oh yeah.

Speaker:

I was gonna say Shawn, hasn't told us about his story.

Speaker:

Oh, yeah,

Speaker:

sorry.

Speaker:

John.

Speaker:

Doesn't care for me where my stories were Khamenei AXA.

Speaker:

This is just a little private peek behind, behind the screen.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

It's just a pretty face.

Speaker:

You're just a pretty face to him.

Speaker:

Well, at least

Speaker:

very pretty, very pretty

Speaker:

face.

Speaker:

I might

Speaker:

Best day of winter, that Tik TOK didn't explode, but that's

Speaker:

okay.

Speaker:

It made

Speaker:

I enjoyed it.

Speaker:

that's what counts

Speaker:

I left way too hard at it when I was editing.

Speaker:

the harmony between John and I is a chef's case.

Speaker:

It was a little late audio, but you know, it's there.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

it's hard to do this remote.

Speaker:

You know what I mean?

Speaker:

It's hard to harmonize.

Speaker:

but yeah, it's the anniversary.

Speaker:

I don't know.

Speaker:

We don't currently have plants, but we usually celebrate, we do something it will have just been my birthday too.

Speaker:

I think I peek behind the screen.

Speaker:

Again, we record this before this releases, uh, it should, uh, have just been my birthday and I think I just had an emo, themed birthday party.

Speaker:

So yeah, I

Speaker:

So more secondhand serenade

Speaker:

Yeah, more of that.

Speaker:

What would that beautiful harmonizing in life?

Speaker:

are you going to bring back the mullet?

Speaker:

I might, I was thinking I'd have my hair long enough by then, but I, I forgot about it.

Speaker:

And then I got a haircut, so, um, yeah, I might get a wig.

Speaker:

I might get a wig or I might, I might just do the it's hard now.

Speaker:

Cause I've been having a hat, but I might just do one of these, you know what I mean?

Speaker:

Oh yeah.

Speaker:

You could get away with.

Speaker:

you go.

Speaker:

Please.

Speaker:

You

Speaker:

got it?

Speaker:

I'm buying rock band on the PS, is it?

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

we're going to do, I'm buying all the emo song.

Speaker:

DLCs.

Speaker:

We're gonna drink.

Speaker:

We're going to play rock band.

Speaker:

It should be good.

Speaker:

Or it, it was good.

Speaker:

I'm manifesting it.

Speaker:

It was good.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

That'd be, that's not sick actually.

Speaker:

I've never been to an emo party, but

Speaker:

I kind of want to know.

Speaker:

for when I lived the emo lifestyle, but I haven't had an email theme to party

Speaker:

again, with the award winning.

Speaker:

Yeah,

Speaker:

I think your sister commented on the real saying like, you always remind them that, that you had good

Speaker:

hair back

Speaker:

then

Speaker:

was that your sister that's so funny.

Speaker:

wait.

Speaker:

W which, uh, which sister, what was the.

Speaker:

was, it was the real, I want to say it was your

Speaker:

sister.

Speaker:

I have to, but yeah, I'll I'll look, I'll

Speaker:

look.

Speaker:

I thought it was weird cause I, it had to be someone that knew you.

Speaker:

they said you remind them of it all the time.

Speaker:

So I was like, I didn't clue in that.

Speaker:

That might be your sister.

Speaker:

That's funny.

Speaker:

do they have Letterman jackets in Canada?

Speaker:

Is that a thing in Canada?

Speaker:

Like in high school?

Speaker:

Like I know what they are

Speaker:

from, from TV and

Speaker:

movies.

Speaker:

Yeah, well, I got like a patch, that says best tier two time winner on my Letterman

Speaker:

jacket.

Speaker:

I lettered and having, uh, in, in having the best hair in school,

Speaker:

Not sports,

Speaker:

but.

Speaker:

not

Speaker:

going to change.

Speaker:

I'm going to change your lower thirds when it says Sean Salvino host of Reddit on Wiki to, award-winning hair.

Speaker:

best hair of Houston, 2008, 2009.

Speaker:

too long.

Speaker:

It's gotta be just award-winning hair.

Speaker:

award-winning

Speaker:

hair.

Speaker:

You currently hold the record.

Speaker:

Oh, that's awesome, man.

Speaker:

Josh, your birthday just passed by like a.

Speaker:

You excited or did you have fun in your events that you're going to

Speaker:

future?

Speaker:

Yeah, I didn't realize that we were going to have another recording date before my birthday.

Speaker:

but, uh, yeah, I I'm going to the Leafs game and a couple of days,

Speaker:

Oh,

Speaker:

uh they've clinched the playoffs this weekend.

Speaker:

That's why I'm wearing my Leafs Jersey.

Speaker:

And also I think the playoffs start when this episode comes out.

Speaker:

super excited about that to watch them get knocked out in the first round fifth time in a row, let's go, baby.

Speaker:

but yeah, that's basically my birthday lands on Easter.

Speaker:

So we're doing my birthday Saturday kind of, and then it's going to be mostly Easter stuff.

Speaker:

So,

Speaker:

Wow.

Speaker:

Jesus.

Speaker:

Stealing your shine.

Speaker:

I know classic classic Jesus.

Speaker:

Jesus

Speaker:

when he rises on Monday or whatever, I'll fight them or something.

Speaker:

on Monday.

Speaker:

It's Easter Sunday.

Speaker:

up Sunday full.

Speaker:

Why do they call it good Friday then if he's dead.

Speaker:

He died on Friday because he died for our sins might go.

Speaker:

well that doesn't make any sense.

Speaker:

We killed Jesus now.

Speaker:

It's good Friday.

Speaker:

Fuck them.

Speaker:

he, he died for us.

Speaker:

All right.

Speaker:

Catholic, here we go.

Speaker:

Before Jesus died.

Speaker:

Heaven was not open in the Catholic, in the Catholic faith.

Speaker:

I don't know.

Speaker:

You know, we're all believing in different things.

Speaker:

I'm just explaining why it's called good.

Speaker:

so what happens to people before Jesus died?

Speaker:

They've

Speaker:

the theory again, not at the ologists.

Speaker:

I think the theory is that everyone was chilling in purgatory, which is another Catholic thing.

Speaker:

I don't know if that's a Protestant

Speaker:

I like to think that people that died before Jesus died, uh, are still stuck in purgatory.

Speaker:

Damn, dark.

Speaker:

very dark.

Speaker:

They're like, sorry, you died too early.

Speaker:

Man, you

Speaker:

the lottery.

Speaker:

mark.

Speaker:

Damn.

Speaker:

Just one day, man.

Speaker:

If he just waited until after Friday boof,

Speaker:

You're they're like, I always wondered why I died in 500 BC.

Speaker:

I didn't know what BC meant.

Speaker:

Birth

Speaker:

it BC in BC?

Speaker:

Wild?

Speaker:

No, it was just 500

Speaker:

Hmm.

Speaker:

I don't know.

Speaker:

I don't even think it was that

Speaker:

probably some other calendar, to be honest.

Speaker:

just like Jesus, Sean.

Speaker:

Nailed that explanation,

Speaker:

huh?

Speaker:

technically Jesus did a Neha do the nailing.

Speaker:

He was

Speaker:

Oh Yeah.

Speaker:

yeah.

Speaker:

So Josh just like knees,

Speaker:

anyway, so let's kind of get into our topic today.

Speaker:

But before that, I do want to ask you boys some question pertaining to possibly, uh, about goosebumps before we get into the actual definition of what goosebumps

Speaker:

are.

Speaker:

Travis Scott song.

Speaker:

it is

Speaker:

great, great

Speaker:

Can we like

Speaker:

I was going to say,

Speaker:

Is that

Speaker:

oh yeah, No.

Speaker:

Oh yeah.

Speaker:

Travis Scott sex.

Speaker:

I hate goosebumps.

Speaker:

It's

Speaker:

You can't like Kanye either when you do it anyway.

Speaker:

music's

Speaker:

I felt like, I felt like Sean is contractually obligated to like Travis Scott,

Speaker:

just because he

Speaker:

represents

Speaker:

time baby asked, well, he

Speaker:

has

Speaker:

solid the name Astroworld.

Speaker:

We can't celebrate Astroworld anymore.

Speaker:

That was a literal demotic.

Speaker:

You can't celebrate the Astros.

Speaker:

You can't celebrate

Speaker:

Astroworld.

Speaker:

the Astro's all goddamn day, 2017 champs astronaut.

Speaker:

It still says champ.

Speaker:

We still got the pen and handing it in are hanging in our stadium.

Speaker:

So fuck what you're talking about.

Speaker:

what?

Speaker:

The Astros didn't kill anyone.

Speaker:

So I'm okay with them.

Speaker:

Uh that's that's the bar for Astro.

Speaker:

that's fine.

Speaker:

very

Speaker:

low.

Speaker:

All right.

Speaker:

So as, as far as goosebumps concerned shot, let me ask you this question.

Speaker:

I know that.

Speaker:

And your past career, you mentioned that you were part of a dance crew most specifically gulling.

Speaker:

Was there ever a moment that you can think of where we're dancing or performing gave you

Speaker:

goosebumps?

Speaker:

oh, all the time.

Speaker:

Anytime you see somebody like.

Speaker:

That dance is like, you know, you see a good choreography piece or you see a good performance or you, you know, you watching your friends from another team kill.

Speaker:

You're like, Ooh, you know, that disgusting face.

Speaker:

You're like, Ooh, like, uh,

Speaker:

Oh, that's not how you know

Speaker:

That she is

Speaker:

is nasty.

Speaker:

That shit is good.

Speaker:

like, damn.

Speaker:

Uh, yeah.

Speaker:

Yeah, because it was all the time and performing too, when you walk on stage and hear everybody screaming, and if it's like a home crowd that knows you, when you hear them screaming, your name shit

Speaker:

you have like a memorable, like performance that you did that just like top one like that you've ever done

Speaker:

The Superbowl now

Speaker:

imagine,

Speaker:

man, those Superbowl dancers don't get paid at all, but it wouldn't be sick.

Speaker:

what?

Speaker:

no.

Speaker:

Yeah,

Speaker:

but they don't get

Speaker:

paid.

Speaker:

technically the artist doesn't get paid either every year.

Speaker:

The

Speaker:

the Jesus.

Speaker:

What is it?

Speaker:

I think, I think.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

They just do it.

Speaker:

But that was a whole thing this year is that the dancers weren't getting paid and they were like expected to do all this practice and all that shit.

Speaker:

says

Speaker:

that is,

Speaker:

we were all like, why is this a news thing?

Speaker:

This happens every year.

Speaker:

but I mean, but still that shouldn't happen at all.

Speaker:

Oh, for sure.

Speaker:

We have the answers need to get paid.

Speaker:

What they deserve.

Speaker:

Like the hours of work that they put in.

Speaker:

Like, I've speak to it.

Speaker:

You know, sometimes when we get booked for like weddings or like events or whatever, and we tell them the price, they're like, Ugh, like it's only five minutes on stage.

Speaker:

I'm like, bitch, do you know the amount of, you know, the amount of time that we put into this?

Speaker:

I'm

Speaker:

when I go to advertisers and they're like, you want how much for an average spot?

Speaker:

bitch, we got a hundred million tick-tock views.

Speaker:

What the fuck you talking about?

Speaker:

well, the NFL has a hundreds of millions of viewers.

Speaker:

Like

Speaker:

And they still don't pay those dancers.

Speaker:

there are a hundred, there's like a hundred billion dollar company.

Speaker:

How the fuck

Speaker:

The fucking Pepsi, Superbowl robe.

Speaker:

Pepsi is a yeah.

Speaker:

Pepsi and NFL.

Speaker:

Y'all can't pay these dancers.

Speaker:

Jesus Christ like.

Speaker:

trash

Speaker:

behavior.

Speaker:

This is some late stage capitalism we're entering

Speaker:

Oh, yeah,

Speaker:

or have entered for a long time.

Speaker:

It

Speaker:

we've been in,

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

Jesus.

Speaker:

but I don't know if I have like a top performance of all time.

Speaker:

I really like a lot of our, our shits.

Speaker:

there's like Mo most, every time I've stepped on stage and you know, it's been like, that was fucking awesome.

Speaker:

You know what I mean?

Speaker:

There's of course, embarrassing moments that happen sometimes.

Speaker:

Hey, it happens

Speaker:

to

Speaker:

everybody.

Speaker:

Shit happens.

Speaker:

You know what I mean?

Speaker:

But I have the way more good times than bad times on stage.

Speaker:

So I would say I always get goosebumps.

Speaker:

That's all.

Speaker:

That's good.

Speaker:

I, Josh, let me throw you this question.

Speaker:

Now, having been caught up would Ted lasso.

Speaker:

Cause you guys convinced me.

Speaker:

I do fucking hate

Speaker:

Nate so

Speaker:

Do you love the show,

Speaker:

though?

Speaker:

I it's a great show.

Speaker:

Like I teared up like a

Speaker:

bunch of times.

Speaker:

Uh, okay.

Speaker:

This is, this is a kind of a call to the wicked maniacs who listened, who watched Ted lassoed.

Speaker:

Would you guys want us to do like a, recap or a review of like season three when it comes out?

Speaker:

Cause that'd be sick.

Speaker:

And what'd you like to hear it exclusively behind our Patriot on our twenty-five dollars tier, let us know and we'll do it for sure.

Speaker:

No, I want to do it for my episode, so I don't have to come up with another idea.

Speaker:

oh, genius.

Speaker:

And if you think any of us resemble any Ted lasso characters, let us know what you mean.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

Because like, we want to know.

Speaker:

John's really pulling for Roy.

Speaker:

I do want Royce boy fucking Jamie tart,

Speaker:

I don't know who I, if I relate to anybody in particular, maybe Nate pre asshole.

Speaker:

Nate,

Speaker:

pre Asil.

Speaker:

Uh,

Speaker:

I don't

Speaker:

just super

Speaker:

shy and

Speaker:

yeah, I could see

Speaker:

that.

Speaker:

I'm just a nice guy.

Speaker:

You know what I mean?

Speaker:

Nice guy with good.

Speaker:

uh, who's the, who's the secondary coach.

Speaker:

I forget his name

Speaker:

beard.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

I relate to him.

Speaker:

I'm like a hybrid test.

Speaker:

And, uh,

Speaker:

Yeah, you're Ted actually.

Speaker:

nah,

Speaker:

John's Ted, right?

Speaker:

Sean, like with the puns

Speaker:

and

Speaker:

the cheesy humor.

Speaker:

puns and getting everybody on the same page, probably probably a Ted last.

Speaker:

a little bit more positive.

Speaker:

I'd say that, but

Speaker:

it.

Speaker:

Yes.

Speaker:

That's where I get the

Speaker:

Roy,

Speaker:

We're all pretty negative at cultivate, to be

Speaker:

honest.

Speaker:

that's true.

Speaker:

I could relate to tech because I do have mental health problems really

Speaker:

bad,

Speaker:

Who doesn't.

Speaker:

honestly, you right.

Speaker:

You're right.

Speaker:

All right,

Speaker:

Josh, let me, let me throw you this question real quick.

Speaker:

So.

Speaker:

In our 40 hour work week episode, you mentioned, I think, correct me if I'm wrong, that you had hoped to be a professional soccer player growing

Speaker:

up.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

Yeah, I

Speaker:

did.

Speaker:

Would there ever be a specific arena or stadium or team that you wanted to play for?

Speaker:

And what moment would you think would give you the biggest.

Speaker:

Ooh,

Speaker:

the maple.

Speaker:

That's not a soccer.

Speaker:

team?

Speaker:

right, Right, right,

Speaker:

Uh, yeah, I could feel for the Toronto FC, I guess.

Speaker:

Uh, but, the most nervous I got, I think playing for, a soccer team was actually in tryouts for a Toronto team that I was going up.

Speaker:

Uh, shadow Toronto links.

Speaker:

I don't even know if they're around anymore, but, uh, it was, it was kind of a big deal for small town guide playing in Toronto.

Speaker:

And, uh, I was so nervous, going into those tryouts.

Speaker:

Other than that, I mean, I get nervous any, like if I was to go play soccer today in like a reckless.

Speaker:

I would get nervous just because that's just who I am.

Speaker:

I'm a social, social anxiety to the max.

Speaker:

And so when I'm in front of a bunch of people doing stuff, even though no one gives a shit about what I'm doing, just absolutely wreck.

Speaker:

just inside, I, I don't show it usually,

Speaker:

that's and

Speaker:

that's fine.

Speaker:

So, so throw me on any pitch, John and I will be, covered in goosebumps.

Speaker:

there you go.

Speaker:

Perfect segue.

Speaker:

All right.

Speaker:

So let's actually define what goosebumps are.

Speaker:

According to Wikipedia, goosebumps or goosebumps or goosebumps, like two words, and then goosebumps or goose pimples are the bumps on a

Speaker:

person's

Speaker:

that should be called geese

Speaker:

bump

Speaker:

So, uh, there, the bumps on a person's skin at the base of body hairs, which may involuntarily develop when a person is typically.

Speaker:

Cold or experiencing strong emotions, such as fear, euphoria or sexual arousal.

Speaker:

I have to say it

Speaker:

like that.

Speaker:

There needs, there needs to be cut at of some kind of smile

Speaker:

in here

Speaker:

Yeah, it made me uncomfortable.

Speaker:

Brought me back to episode

Speaker:

two.

Speaker:

5, 8, 11.

Speaker:

the formation of goosebumps in humans under stress is considered to be a vestigial reflex.

Speaker:

Its function in other apes is to raise the body's hair and would have made human ancestors appear larger to scare off predators or to increase the amount of air trapped into the fur to make it more insulating.

Speaker:

Go back to our Neanderthal episode.

Speaker:

They, it kind of goes a little bit more in depth with that.

Speaker:

the reflex of producing goosebumps is known as pilot erection or the pilot motor reflex or more traditionally horribly nation.

Speaker:

It occurs in many mammals.

Speaker:

A prominent example is porcupines, which raised their quills when threaten or sea otters when they encounter sharks or other.

Speaker:

So to close it off, according to an article by Robert from Harvard health, he quotes most people, associate goosebumps.

Speaker:

Would unpleasant situations such as feeling particularly cold or being afraid.

Speaker:

According to David David Nield quote, in the short term, it causes hair to stand up and goosebumps to appear.

Speaker:

And in the longterm in appears to promote hair growth.

Speaker:

So, uh, the researchers say this is an important link between stem cells, which the body can use to create other kinds of cells and external stimuli.

Speaker:

So it sounds like if you are balding, get scared a lot, maybe your hair will regenerate,

Speaker:

but that, that Saudi actually just recently.

Speaker:

was kind of more supported back in 2020.

Speaker:

So it's a pretty recent study that they, correlated like hair promoting hair growth when you get goosebumps.

Speaker:

So that's

Speaker:

my girlfriend's not going to like this, but I guess we're watching a bunch more horror movies.

Speaker:

So

Speaker:

Yeah,

Speaker:

if

Speaker:

Josh wants to get

Speaker:

hairier.

Speaker:

I should watch that horror movie.

Speaker:

I was supposed to watch.

Speaker:

Mm.

Speaker:

my

Speaker:

alopecia.

Speaker:

Yeah, we should do it as like a patriotic exclusive.

Speaker:

Sean, you me sit down and watch it.

Speaker:

Hey, if it's on Patrion, I'm bout it.

Speaker:

If it's on the Patriot on Yoda.

Speaker:

No, it's a yes.

Speaker:

We'll do a live stream, no edits.

Speaker:

We'll just throw it up after the live

Speaker:

stream.

Speaker:

And that's what takes us down and that's what cancels us.

Speaker:

And that's what gets us off of the podcast,

Speaker:

Sean, just swearing, absurdities.

Speaker:

mother.

Speaker:

Fuck.

Speaker:

So, so that was kind of it on goosebumps, really a basic information about it.

Speaker:

I know we talked a lot about like feelings and emotions and in this episode, so next time you kind of get that feeling of scared or, feeling frisky and you get those goosebumps.

Speaker:

think of you, John.

Speaker:

Think

Speaker:

of

Speaker:

I'll think of you, next time

Speaker:

I get aroused.

Speaker:

Jesus.

Speaker:

I was going to say, you know what, since we talked about the officer earlier, one thing that does give me goosebumps is the cringe in that show.

Speaker:

specifically Scott's tots

Speaker:

Oh, my God.

Speaker:

Yeah,

Speaker:

one of the

Speaker:

worst

Speaker:

is

Speaker:

the most

Speaker:

I'm getting goosebumps right now.

Speaker:

I get

Speaker:

it makes me so uncomfortable.

Speaker:

the way everyone was just fucking cheering him on.

Speaker:

And she's like, oh my God, we're going to

Speaker:

college.

Speaker:

Hey, Mr.

Speaker:

Scott, what's it going to do?

Speaker:

No

Speaker:

oh shit.

Speaker:

Oh God.

Speaker:

my God.

Speaker:

That is very cringy.

Speaker:

Holy shit.

Speaker:

All right.

Speaker:

So while we, as humans might not ever make ourselves seem bigger, when we get goosebumps to ward off.

Speaker:

I know, I can tell you by example, I don't grow just because I'm scared.

Speaker:

It may seem like

Speaker:

the

Speaker:

John's not a grower.

Speaker:

I, yeah.

Speaker:

Um, I'm neither a grower or a show or it is what it is at this point.

Speaker:

Uh it's you know what I accepted?

Speaker:

All right.

Speaker:

It may seem like the next Dem Marvel or DC movie superpower.

Speaker:

So let's not give them any ideas.

Speaker:

This is not a fight or flight situation, so don't, you dare leave us.

Speaker:

But when we get back from our break, we're going to read some goosebumps inducing stories from R slash let's not meet.

Speaker:

We'll be right back after a few words

Speaker:

from sponsors.

Speaker:

Did RL Stine, right?

Speaker:

Goosebumps

Speaker:

is that who wrote?

Speaker:

Yes.

Speaker:

Did you read.

Speaker:

it's just, when you said R I was like, oh, R L Stine, goosebumps, right?

Speaker:

Where Reddit show where Reddit show it's R slash right.

Speaker:

and welcome back to Reddit on a Wiki.

Speaker:

So I actually found this funny that the subreddit is called.

Speaker:

Let's not meet because all of us haven't met each other in real life, but

Speaker:

that's going to

Speaker:

Yeah, I wrote about you on here, John.

Speaker:

bye.

Speaker:

He never stops with the creepy puns.

Speaker:

He told me to think of him next time.

Speaker:

I'm aroused.

Speaker:

First of all, you said that

Speaker:

He heavily implied it

Speaker:

that's going to change though, because Sean and I are actually gonna meet up

Speaker:

That's true

Speaker:

little meek.

Speaker:

Cute.

Speaker:

You know what I

Speaker:

two weeks, two weeks

Speaker:

we two weeks before

Speaker:

that.

Speaker:

So, and you

Speaker:

know, you know what

Speaker:

I'm

Speaker:

We're

Speaker:

So how was it?

Speaker:

actually together right now.

Speaker:

This, this one is that Josh is the only one.

Speaker:

Classic.

Speaker:

So, um, it's, like I said, it's funny that this is a, let's not meet a subreddit, even though we never met each other and realize, however, these stories just like our topic today might give you some goosebumps.

Speaker:

So Sean, you're up my guy, I made sure that it's not super loud that I made you read like

Speaker:

that.

Speaker:

thank you so much.

Speaker:

All right, so this is from Sapphic underscore, it's titled you look good.

Speaker:

I've been running in these woods for as long as I can remember, but this might make me change my mind.

Speaker:

The story began around 6:30 PM.

Speaker:

I had just finished eating and decided to go on a run as usual.

Speaker:

I always use the same path across the street run for about a kilometer.

Speaker:

some say

Speaker:

that slot.

Speaker:

I did that on purpose though.

Speaker:

How

Speaker:

much did they run

Speaker:

It's like eight miles, right?

Speaker:

yeah, it's the sub say kilometers longer than a mile and they would be incorrect.

Speaker:

Right?

Speaker:

They'd be incorrect.

Speaker:

We conveyed X.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

We're together on this anyways.

Speaker:

Uh, and pass the gate that goes into the woods.

Speaker:

Something important to note is that the trail I use in the forest is separated about halfway through on path is paved and the.

Speaker:

I usually go into the unpaved path first and then turn into the paved one after about three kilometers, which miles would be about like two point.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

Yeah,

Speaker:

that feels right.

Speaker:

Two points slump then you're right.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

Close enough.

Speaker:

the immediate laughter made me feel like I was correct.

Speaker:

So.

Speaker:

nothing ever really goes wrong.

Speaker:

I met some rare people walking their dogs, but other than that, I'm pretty alone.

Speaker:

At least I thought I was,

Speaker:

Oh, no.

Speaker:

I had been running for a while now, when I heard a notification coming from my phone, an airdrop notification, since I didn't want to make it look like I was worried, I kept running for a couple minutes and then stop to change the music.

Speaker:

I opened the airdrop treadmill.

Speaker:

Who the hell was sending me stuff.

Speaker:

I was pretty sure I was alone.

Speaker:

I clicked on the link and my heart sunk.

Speaker:

It was a Snapchat picture of me running with the caption.

Speaker:

You look good.

Speaker:

Oh, my God.

Speaker:

didn't turn around.

Speaker:

Instead.

Speaker:

I kept running like nothing happened until I reached a certain point.

Speaker:

You see the forest is surrounded by a fence to stop children from coming in uncertainty.

Speaker:

And I didn't like that rule when I was little.

Speaker:

So my friends and I cut a hole in it.

Speaker:

When I was aligned with that hole, I quickly turn and buried myself in the forest.

Speaker:

Aiming for my escape.

Speaker:

I could hear ruffling behind me, instilled it and turned back.

Speaker:

Oh, goosebumps.

Speaker:

For

Speaker:

Oh

Speaker:

no.

Speaker:

Damn.

Speaker:

I finally reached the hole, I jumped through it and absolutely booked it to the fire station.

Speaker:

That was a couple streets.

Speaker:

The last things I could hear when leaving the force was an angry Hough and metal meeting metal.

Speaker:

I still don't know who it was or what they wanted from me, but I never ran in this force again.

Speaker:

So creepy stalker guy or whoever you are.

Speaker:

I truly hope we never ever meet

Speaker:

Jesus.

Speaker:

Correct.

Speaker:

that

Speaker:

is I hope it's not real, but, uh, definitely sounds like it could be.

Speaker:

And I

Speaker:

did she say which forest it was?

Speaker:

Because I would like to avoid it.

Speaker:

It sounds like she's Canadian or European, I guess

Speaker:

anywhere that's not American.

Speaker:

Right?

Speaker:

I mean, everybody else is on kilometers or

Speaker:

true, actually.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

Yeah, Jesus.

Speaker:

That is a terrifying.

Speaker:

and it really.

Speaker:

It

Speaker:

Sucks to be a girl.

Speaker:

I'm like we have never had that issue,

Speaker:

no, I would.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

If anyone came after me, I'd cry, but.

Speaker:

even if we were like, attractive dudes.

Speaker:

I don't think anyone would stock.

Speaker:

No.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

See, that's the thing.

Speaker:

Okay.

Speaker:

So, uh, back a little quick story.

Speaker:

So when I went to my friend's wedding, we had a little like, kind of get together tonight before, and then to get back to my hotel.

Speaker:

It was like, it was like 0.8 miles.

Speaker:

I'll try to Uber back, but it was like $40 to get an Uber for like one mile a mile.

Speaker:

Jesus, that's a

Speaker:

like, I was like, fuck that's really?

Speaker:

And it was like, cause it was St Patrick's day.

Speaker:

So it was like super like surcharge.

Speaker:

And I was like, ah, the fuck, that's not worth it.

Speaker:

Like, so I walked like a mile at like two 30 in the morning.

Speaker:

And then I told my wife the next day, I'm like, Hey, I kind of walked home.

Speaker:

She was like, I would never do that.

Speaker:

Like I would gladly pay $50 to fucking get a ride, get an Uber.

Speaker:

And I was just like, fuck, that's how a male

Speaker:

privilege.

Speaker:

no, it is.

Speaker:

I didn't even hesitate.

Speaker:

I was just like, I'm not going to fucking, I'm not going to fucking like pay $50.

Speaker:

I'm just going to walk like no fear at

Speaker:

all.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

like the idea of being kidnapped as we've talked about many times does not cross my mind when I go out for my daily walks or, like I've, I've gone for walks at like 1130 at night.

Speaker:

Just like sometimes I'm just like, can't sleep, go for a walk.

Speaker:

And, uh, I, it's never once crossed my mind that, oh, the stranger.

Speaker:

Walking the other way is going to kill me.

Speaker:

It's

Speaker:

insane.

Speaker:

Um, that's so scary.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

Um, he seems like he'd be one of those nice guys on, on Reddit

Speaker:

yes.

Speaker:

For sure.

Speaker:

to hit on this girl.

Speaker:

And she ran away from me through a fence.

Speaker:

all I did was take a picture from behind her, without her

Speaker:

knowing,

Speaker:

I airdropped it.

Speaker:

So she knew I was coming.

Speaker:

I ain't even careful, man.

Speaker:

I said, you look good.

Speaker:

Jesus, fuck this guy.

Speaker:

I like our nice guy voice.

Speaker:

It's

Speaker:

speaking of kidnappers, Josh, your actual story is

Speaker:

about kidnappers.

Speaker:

actually.

Speaker:

Yeah, it is right.

Speaker:

yeah.

Speaker:

So my story is from user day pass C toad.

Speaker:

So it's a little bit of French there.

Speaker:

the Esposito, like the Justin Bieber

Speaker:

No,

Speaker:

A little bit of Spanish there.

Speaker:

Oh yeah.

Speaker:

Guys, the Spanish.

Speaker:

kidnappers on I, 95 is the title.

Speaker:

This happened close to 15 years ago when I was about seven.

Speaker:

I didn't realize how creepy the situation was until many years later, my dad and I went on a weekend motorcycle trip to Maryland from New York to watch motocross racing at a track called Bud's Creek.

Speaker:

It was an awesome trip.

Speaker:

I love spending time with my dad and watching the racers speed around this insane dirt.

Speaker:

I met two of the all-time greats for that time.

Speaker:

If you're familiar with the early, arts motorcross you'll know who I'm talking about.

Speaker:

They always came in first and second in every race.

Speaker:

I don't know who you're talking about.

Speaker:

I'm sorry.

Speaker:

Um,

Speaker:

I don't

Speaker:

either.

Speaker:

yeah, I would have been six or seven.

Speaker:

No, you're young.

Speaker:

we did the drive back in one go.

Speaker:

It was late at night and we were somewhere in Southern Pennsylvania.

Speaker:

When I started getting really cold on the back of the bike.

Speaker:

My dad pulled over to the side of the . So I could warm up within a minute of stopping a van pulled up behind us and this older couple got out

Speaker:

Hell.

Speaker:

No.

Speaker:

the man started talking to my dad.

Speaker:

Saying they had followed us for some time and I looked so uncomfortable and how they're heading north and I should ride with them in the warm van instead.

Speaker:

Hell no.

Speaker:

a note.

Speaker:

I remember the man kneeling down and asking me if I wanted snacks they had in the van.

Speaker:

And if I wanted to go to Hershey park, that sounds like a good trip.

Speaker:

No Josh say no.

Speaker:

Don't be get me.

Speaker:

my dad is a pretty tough guy and I remember him talking that to them in a hushed voice, probably.

Speaker:

So I wouldn't hear him threatening them.

Speaker:

He told me years later that he told them he had a gun strapped to his hip and they better drive away right now before he used it.

Speaker:

They continued to try and convince him, but they left after a few minutes.

Speaker:

I'm probably out of their preferred age range now, but Hey, probable child abductors.

Speaker:

Let's not meet.

Speaker:

shit.

Speaker:

is some balls to try and kidnaps a kid right in front of the parent.

Speaker:

And to not leave.

Speaker:

As soon as the gun gets mentioned.

Speaker:

And th and the dad repeatedly said, no, like, you're going to keep forcing it.

Speaker:

Like, what the

Speaker:

fuck?

Speaker:

Fucked up on so many levels.

Speaker:

in my, you know, heart, I hope they were actually trying to be nice people and be like, worried about this kid's safety.

Speaker:

But, the realist part of me is knows that's probably not what it was.

Speaker:

Nope.

Speaker:

Absolutely not.

Speaker:

anyways, let me tell my story.

Speaker:

this one is posted by username, Chris GUI, and the title is bad day to take a shortcut.

Speaker:

Let me tell you my story.

Speaker:

It happened four years ago because of the university.

Speaker:

I moved to another city and I used to go visit my family every two or four weeks.

Speaker:

One of those times I arrived to the bus station and I didn't feel like getting on another bus to get home.

Speaker:

I estimated that it would take me about 30 minutes if I walked and it seemed like

Speaker:

a good

Speaker:

idea,

Speaker:

It's kind of like you,

Speaker:

half kind of like me, exactly shit.

Speaker:

halfway through.

Speaker:

I remembered that there was a street that would allow me to make less time.

Speaker:

It was about 5:00 PM.

Speaker:

It wasn't dark.

Speaker:

So I decided to go there.

Speaker:

I was feeling a little uneasy.

Speaker:

So I put my cell phone and the money I had in, in a zippered bag in my jacket.

Speaker:

I turned on the second block.

Speaker:

I was three blocks away from going back to the main road where there were more people.

Speaker:

I heard a car slowing down and it began to regret the decision I had made.

Speaker:

I accelerated the pace, but the car was going next to me.

Speaker:

I turned to see the driver and I realized that he was watching me from up to down.

Speaker:

I moved my backpack to block his eyes.

Speaker:

I felt very uncomfortable.

Speaker:

He just yelled food and accelerated down that would've got

Speaker:

me

Speaker:

What The fuck.

Speaker:

my fat ass.

Speaker:

Would've been like, where, what kind

Speaker:

just chasing after the cars at

Speaker:

dry

Speaker:

watch you got

Speaker:

ice cream.

Speaker:

donuts?

Speaker:

When I got to the next block, he was in front of a house with.

Speaker:

I immediately switched to the other sidewalk and he started laughing and went into the garage.

Speaker:

That's when I heard eat her,

Speaker:

Oh, no.

Speaker:

Oh no, no, no, no.

Speaker:

turned around and confusion and realize that the man was laughing and holding the chains of two

Speaker:

dogs,

Speaker:

the fuck?

Speaker:

I heard they're barking and it was the last sound Iran and everything around.

Speaker:

I went into the first store.

Speaker:

I found slammed the door and the sales woman asked me what was going on and even gave me a candy.

Speaker:

She was so sweet.

Speaker:

She told me, oh, that was part of the story, by the way, that was not a pun.

Speaker:

Um, she told me that the bus that would take me to the direction that I was going was about to pass by.

Speaker:

And she accompanied me until I got on.

Speaker:

I'll never forget that day.

Speaker:

And I haven't walked down that street

Speaker:

again.

Speaker:

Damn what a nice store owner to do that,

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

but Jesus

Speaker:

Christ, what kind of sociopath?

Speaker:

Oh

Speaker:

Like that guy can't be all there, right?

Speaker:

No, definitely

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

He's training dogs to eat people, or at least scare people into thinking his dogs are going to eat them for

Speaker:

It's like a mirror off of Jake Amir
