  • you have a podcast with your with your old co star and buddy Donald.

  • Phase on.

  • You guys have this podcast where you talk about Scrubs?

  • Yeah, well, before co it happened.

  • You know, someone approached us and said the 22 gals from the office had done this, and it becomes really popular.

  • You guys ever want to do this?

  • And they and they said, you know, you just sit around and you watch.

  • It's not live.

  • You watch the episode before, and then you sit around and joke about it right on.

  • And I said it was great.

  • That'll be fun.

  • Yeah, blast.

  • Then Koven starts.

  • And literally, the day we were set to record, they locked down the city and we said, Oh, that's too bad.

  • That would have been fun.

  • It actually, they said, Don't worry.

  • We'll bring you the fancy microphone, which I have here.

  • Oh, that's the old XK 11, 3 20.

  • 0, you know, it is the, uh Yeah, You probably actually know what it is.

  • I don't know what brought us the gear, and once a week, we do it on Zoom, and we thought it would just be like, I honestly thought it would be a handful of Scrubs fans and then like our parents.

  • But it became huge internationally, huge and eso Once a week, we tell stories.

  • We go on long ass, random tangents.

  • We make each other laugh.

  • We tell nostalgic, embarrassing anecdotes, and it's become a huge.

  • That's great.

  • That's fantastic.

  • The the only thing that's weird is that I thought it was a joke at first.

  • But Donald says that he is broadcasting from a closet in his house.

  • And then I found out that it's really he really does broadcast from his closet.

  • Yes, because Donald is encoded with two small Children who want to know where the hell that is.

  • Eso his initial plan was I have to hide from these kids, and our engineer was like, actually your closets.

  • Not bad, because of all the acoustics will be great.

  • So but now he like, barricades himself in the closet so that the kids, of course, now, after doing it, this many episodes, they come in there.

  • It's funny, we just start having a baby.

  • I thought it reminds me of you because I think you once told me when I was in the show like I like to show the Seems like If there's a message, show it mistakes.

  • Mistakes are gold.

  • You want miss takes.

  • You want people to see that it's riel, right?

  • And I actually, it's funny.

  • I didn't even think of this when I was going to come on the show, but I thought I thought of you telling me that years ago, because we had stuff where it's like his wife comes on and she's like, Honey, the exterminators here he has to spray the closet and we're like, Okay, so we're just way like we don't we don't edit that stuff out.

  • The exterminator comes in.

  • We started talking to him about being an exterminator, like his daughter.

  • I mean, we just We just have it all.

  • Come on the all in the show because it's just it's funny.

  • Now I want to ask you, I know a little bit about the podcast business and merchandizing.

  • I was surprised The minute you start working in the podcast world, uh, the merch people come to you and say You need merch, you need merchandizing.

  • And I didn't think that they were serious because I thought, but apparently that's That's been a big thing for you guys.

  • It's been a little bit of a journey.

  • The merchandise you learned this from.

  • I'm sure your your show that they come to you and they go, Oh, just, you know, because I wasn't super into podcast.

  • I mean, a handful of them, but I've been on a bunch, but they say this is a little bit of a trivial, trivial, not trivia anecdotal.

  • What's the word?

  • It's a thing podcast fans love.

  • They love merch.

  • They like a mug with their favorite show.

  • They like a T shirt.

  • And we were like, Okay, we never made merch for anything, but sure, So we put out some bullshit T shirt and a mug, and the fans on all our social media start making fun of us like, what is this horrible merch?

  • It wasn't it wasn't good merch.

  • No, they did not like their merge.

  • It was basically just our logo with on on the shirt or a mug.

  • So Donald and I get very competitive.

  • We're very competitive people.

  • We did not like this angle, so we said we're going all in.

  • We're going to spend more time coming up with with random ass merch for the people s So we did that.

  • All right, So let me ask you something, cause I have something here and I don't know what's going on.

  • This looks to be this'll.

  • Looks to be a hand towel.

  • Is this a hand towel?

  • It's a washcloth.

  • Okay, here's the deal with this.

  • Donald Donald hadn't brought this whole theory on to the to the podcast.

  • That going And that's yours, by the way to keep I get to keep this.

  • Thank you.

  • Donald has this theory that African American people universally bring a washcloth in the shower, whereas Caucasians don't Uh huh.

  • And then it began.

  • We have an African American female producer, and she weighed in heavily saying yes, all of her African American friends also bring wash Klaus in the shower interesting from the South started weighing and said, No, it's not just about that.

  • It says that's where you grew up with people from the South brainwashed closet.

  • So this joke about washcloths in the shower became a running gag, and we said, you know, we're making we're making the people wash clothes so this I could take into the shower with you.

  • I know you're supposed to wash your butt with.

  • Wait, you're But you just watch your butt with it.

  • Yeah, that's the idea, I think I think.

  • What do you think?

  • You have to know.

  • You can't tell me to do that on a whim.

  • I need thio.

  • First of all, that's not what I would have thought.

  • I would not have thought I would have thought.

  • Oh, you use it to put the hot water up against.

  • Well, you can get a better shade.

  • You can use it for whatever you'd like.

  • I think that the idea for people who are washcloth users is that they get in all the cracks and crevices and nooks and crannies with it.

  • If that's the case, then the order in which you do it is very important is part of our debate.

  • Because I think that start with the ass and then face Conan, This was part of our debate.

  • I said, you, you folks who do this, how often are you swapping out the washcloth?

  • Are you doing a new one every day, or does it just live in the shower for a week?

  • We check this out, this eyes a Christmas ornament.

  • Yes, sir.

  • That's a That is me riding Donald.

  • Um, that's in writing Donald s o on the show Scrubs.

  • There was the whole shtick we used to do where I ride on his back and weigh yellow Eagle.

  • And it was just a stupid thing.
