ABOUT THIS EPISODE

Day 4 of the August Daily Episode Challenge ... @johnemotions

Whoop. Sometimes I feel like Imean one of those that little clear vacuum tubes things the use two have atthe banks and just show up at your at your door. Whoop. Hi, I'm John. Welcome back to Emo Dojo. I'm John. Hi,I'm John. You guys watch Dave. I love that show. It's likea generation z version of curb your enthusiasm. If you like neurotic humor, checkout Dave fx. Pretty Dope you like it. I got all upbeatstuff today. I had to get this podcast done quickly because I'm running outof daylight and daytime. I need to go to bed and I just wantedto meet my commitment. So this podcast is for August. Fourth I'm doinga daily challenge, like a podcast today and episode today for all of August. Okay, so real quick. I don't know if you have an instagramaccount, but if you do, you...

...probably get ads for devices. Well, I don't know, maybe just I do because I'm in that algorithm.So, long and short of it, I get ads for interesting devices.I did a couple of episodes about why. I talk about it pretty frequently.The lifted thing, transcranial direct current stimulation, basically a rain Zapper.I use that. I like it. I'll tell you more about that.And since I started, I don't know, talking about that or whatever, Igot in this other algorithm or see more ads, but clicked on onead for a thing called the Apollo Neuro. The Apollo Neuro, now what thisis? It looks like about the size of Apple Watch strap. Iton your wrists or your ankle is a different strap if want to put iton your ankle. I thought the ankle strap looked a bit much like homedetention situation down there, so I just wear it on my wrist. Andthen the Apollo neuro comes with an APP for your phone. You just grabthe APP, open it up and you'll...

...see a bunch of different settings,like about eight different settings, like calm or focused or social whatever, right, and you just basically pick whatever mood you want to vibe in, andso I put it on, pick the mood, let it rip. Sowhat it does? I guess, depending on the mood you pick, itchanges the vibrational intensity and duration and oscillation and things like that. There's alot of things involved with vibration, but it changes them apparently has them tunedto the human nervous system at specific frequencies, velocities and such. So okay,here's what I think it feels like. If you ever have a cat,kitten, whatnot it? Well, just imagine you laying in bed oron the easy chair, the couch or whatever, and the cat falls asleepon your wrist and after about five or ten minutes, a screw its leavethe cat there. Well, and step cat starts purring. Now imagine thatpurring feeling on your wrists. That's almost...

...exactly what the Apollo neuro feels like, a cat purring on your wrist. And you might say, well,what good is that? I thought the same thing at first. I wasn'tsure what good it would be, but if I liked it and just feltcute, for lack of a better word, feel like I got a kitty onmy wrist. So apparently what it's doing is it's sending vibrations up yourwrist into your nervous system that correspond with your fight or flight mechanism. That'ssomething else we should talk about. To you know, when people talk aboutfight or flight, they often forget that there's a third one that's equally important. It's called freeze, a lot of people just freeze in life to like. You know what I mean. They they don't. They're not scared enoughto run, angry enough to fight back, so they just kind of freeze.Well, that's dangerous to because life and earth and everything keeps moving forward, so freezing is effectively going backwards to I digress. This thing, though, works with your nervous system in that...

...sense it reminds your fight or flightnervous system that you don't have to fight or fully or freeze. How didthey know it does that? I don't know. I'm going to have themon the PODCAST can ask them these questions. And apparently you can't use it toomuch. The more you use it, the better your nervous system becomes atself regulating at not going into fight or flight or freeze mode. I'veused it in many, many occasions. I've used it in company meetings,I've used it driving, I've used it at bedtime, I've used it watchingtelevision, I've used it a lot. So I've collected HMM, not sure. I'll check the hours. I think you're supposed to get a thousand hoursand I'm probably up to about seven hundred hours collectively. And to be honestwith you, I think it has caught my fight or flight reaction a coupleof times, a couple of times when I'm just like get the fuck outof here, I got to get out of here, and then either thebuzzing on my wrist or like a ghost buzzing when I'm not even wearing thething will occur and I'll just think about...

...it for just for a split second. But that's long enough for me to catch myself, and when I catchmyself I use a trick like, Oh, I just realized that I have afeeling that I want to get the fuck out of here. So bydoing that, by the I just realized, kind of meant. Let's the wholescenario know that I'm onto you, that I had a feeling. Thatseparates the feeling from my person and then I name the feeling. It's notso bad anymore. So in that aspect, having a little vibrational thing like theApollo and euro on your wrist does kind of help, but I don'tknow exactly how. I'm super curious and there's a whole bunch of this missing. It's not in the literature, it's not on the website. I wantto talk to a God damn scientist and find out what's really going on here. It's overly simplified. Basically, I want to get more into the nutsand bolts of why they set the frequencies at the ranges that they did.That's never explained and for three hundred and fifty bucks I would want to explanation. Fortunately, they were kind enough to...

...send me one of their wrist bandsto talk about, which I'm talking about. But I also have lots of questionsand they said, I think I got an email back confirming that theywould be on a podcast. So let me come up with some good questionsand we'll have the people from Apollo neuro come on and talk about their vibrationaldevice for the wrist, the Apollo Neuro. All right, here's something cool towatch. Now, if you've bought an apple device of some sort,there's chances are pretty high you have apple TV or apple plus, whatever thefuck it's called, a fin's apple plus the TV show that you can watchon TV, all the TV shows, Ted Lasso, all that stuff.So, while Ted Lasso is great, really funny, Big Fan of JasonSadecus, I think a lot of people are missing out on this show calledphysical. The cover artwork makes it look like that other Netflix series with MarkMayre and as the glow wrestling ladies bit.

The artwork looks like that. Buton apple plus the cover is for physical and you look at us likewhat is that? Looks like all aerobics or something. Well, that's it. It's a dark comedy. Yeah, a dark comedy. It's almost drama, but it's a dark comedy about the origins of those silly aerobics videos backin the S. it's got great performances. Everybody's crazy. There's neurotic people allaround, hearing people's back stories as wild the main character. You canhear her thoughts while she's saying something else to the person in front of hers. You can hear the contradiction and what kind of person she really is comparedto the person she's pretending to be in you know, in her life andeverybody around her is just crazy anyway. Good storyline though. Super Cool.I'm like I would beings watch it if I could, but they only comeout once a week, so must be patient. All right. Well,I am hitting the road tomorrow, August...

...five. MMM, I'll find away to get a podcast up. I'm not sure about the sound quality orthe studio I'll be in, but I'll make it work. In the meantime, I hope you have a great day. We'll talk to you tomorrow. FromEMO Dojo, I'm John Chiao, and now back to the wall.
