ABOUT THIS EPISODE

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

Whoop. Sometimes I feel like I mean one of those that little clear vacuum tubes things the use two have at the 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 like a generation z version of curb your enthusiasm. If you like neurotic humor, check out Dave fx. Pretty Dope you like it. I got all upbeat stuff today. I had to get this podcast done quickly because I'm running out of daylight and daytime. I need to go to bed and I just wanted to meet my commitment. So this podcast is for August. Fourth I'm doing a 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 instagram account, 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, I got in this other algorithm or see more ads, but clicked on one ad for a thing called the Apollo Neuro. The Apollo Neuro, now what this is? It looks like about the size of Apple Watch strap. It on your wrists or your ankle is a different strap if want to put it on your ankle. I thought the ankle strap looked a bit much like home detention situation down there, so I just wear it on my wrist. And then the Apollo neuro comes with an APP for your phone. You just grab the 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, and so I put it on, pick the mood, let it rip. So what it does? I guess, depending on the mood you pick, it changes the vibrational intensity and duration and oscillation and things like that. There's a lot of things involved with vibration, but it changes them apparently has them tuned to 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 or on the easy chair, the couch or whatever, and the cat falls asleep on your wrist and after about five or ten minutes, a screw its leave the cat there. Well, and step cat starts purring. Now imagine that purring 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't sure what good it would be, but if I liked it and just felt cute, for lack of a better word, feel like I got a kitty on my wrist. So apparently what it's doing is it's sending vibrations up your wrist into your nervous system that correspond with your fight or flight mechanism. That's something else we should talk about. To you know, when people talk about fight 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 enough to 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 flight nervous system that you don't have to fight or fully or freeze. How did they know it does that? I don't know. I'm going to have them on the PODCAST can ask them these questions. And apparently you can't use it too much. The more you use it, the better your nervous system becomes at self regulating at not going into fight or flight or freeze mode. I've used 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 watching television, 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 hours and I'm probably up to about seven hundred hours collectively. And to be honest with you, I think it has caught my fight or flight reaction a couple of times, a couple of times when I'm just like get the fuck out of here, I got to get out of here, and then either the buzzing on my wrist or like a ghost buzzing when I'm not even wearing the thing 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 catch myself I use a trick like, Oh, I just realized that I have a feeling that I want to get the fuck out of here. So by doing that, by the I just realized, kind of meant. Let's the whole scenario know that I'm onto you, that I had a feeling. That separates the feeling from my person and then I name the feeling. It's not so bad anymore. So in that aspect, having a little vibrational thing like the Apollo and euro on your wrist does kind of help, but I don't know 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 want to 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 nuts and 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 bands to talk about, which I'm talking about. But I also have lots of questions and they said, I think I got an email back confirming that they would be on a podcast. So let me come up with some good questions and we'll have the people from Apollo neuro come on and talk about their vibrational device for the wrist, the Apollo Neuro. All right, here's something cool to watch. 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 the fuck it's called, a fin's apple plus the TV show that you can watch on TV, all the TV shows, Ted Lasso, all that stuff. So, while Ted Lasso is great, really funny, Big Fan of Jason Sadecus, I think a lot of people are missing out on this show called physical. The cover artwork makes it look like that other Netflix series with Mark Mayre and as the glow wrestling ladies bit.

The artwork looks like that. But on apple plus the cover is for physical and you look at us like what 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 back in the S. it's got great performances. Everybody's crazy. There's neurotic people all around, hearing people's back stories as wild the main character. You can hear 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 compared to the person she's pretending to be in you know, in her life and everybody 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 come out once a week, so must be patient. All right. Well, I am hitting the road tomorrow, August...

...five. MMM, I'll find a way to get a podcast up. I'm not sure about the sound quality or the 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. From EMO Dojo, I'm John Chiao, and now back to the wall.
