Whoa, just carry. Welcome to Just curious media. This is let's talk Cobra Kai. I'm Jason Connell.
And I'm Sal Rodriguez.
Alright, so we are back for a quick announcement episode. And I sound kind of different.
You sound kind of different. And I'm not even supposed to be here. Because last season you did this on your own.
This is true. This is true. So this is our usual Cobra Kai Season Five announcement, which tells our fans, viewers, listeners, all of you, when our episodes will be dropping of the new season of Cobra Kai.
That's very nice of you to do this. Jason. It really is. A you know, I try. Yeah, because I just be like, listen, they'll get the episodes when they get the episodes goddamnit.
I know. But since we've done it before, we have a precedent. I figured why not? And honestly, if things weren't as they are right now, so they probably would be getting their first episode this Wednesday, per usual. But I wanted to update them. Because that's not the case. I
know you're going through a major shift, a major transition. I mean, I think it's big time huge and exciting what you're doing right now.
Well, I appreciate that. So to let everyone else in. I'm actually literally in the midst of a move. We purchased a home just recently, we closed in just a day or so. And we move in this week. And all of this is happening in the midst of Cobra Kai season five and so of course the NFL season is now Yeah, well I thought about it. I was watching lots of games. My team won a close game Nailbiter go commanders, but I was watching other games. It's like this is crazy what's happening now. And for some people are like, wait a second, didn't you just move to the East Coast. And that's true. It's true. I moved here over a year just over a year ago. And we're just outside Boston, you know, in a suburb right there in Massachusetts. We love it. But we have been house hunting. We've just leased you know, a place wonderful house for a year and have been looking to you know, we're going to be in this town. We love doing them. We've gone on trips up and down the coast and out of nowhere salad right before our trip to LA, we stumbled into our dream home and secured it and it is in Rhode Island. And we couldn't be more excited. But it creates another move itself. Hopefully this move is a permanent one, or at least more permanent than in my history. And goes,
I'll tell you this, Jason, after looking at a few pictures of your new home, it's not just your dream home, it's my dream home.
Or you can come visit us anytime, brother, we just want to be in the house now. So literally my home Currently I'm in the office. Now it's not an office, it's just boxes on my studios box set up, it's like we are so ready to transition. And then we got to get in there. Gotta unpack sure and get the studio back up and running. But you and I will be recording in just a few days time. So this is just a little life thing that slows us down just a beat. But again, couldn't be more thrilled. And I was just quickly on the note of moving. I was on a walk with Sophia earlier this thinking Let me go back. And as long as I've known Sal, let's think about the moves I've made. Met SAP. Yes. I went back to oh five when we met. Yeah. And was thinking of all the places because in LA same thing. I was like, in one place for a year another year, I finally bought a house and I was there for you know more time. But leading up to that and even after that. So let's go from oh five until now to this new move. Sal, I met 11 Thank you, you're still on one
place. I have lived in the same apartment for 25 years. And what's funny is when you tell people that it's not like a marriage, when you tell people you've been in a marriage for 25 years, you get applause you know, you tell people you've been in an apartment for 25 years. They're like, are you okay? Yeah, no, I know this California mortgages are high. I know. I
know. So I'm so happy to pull a Sal Rodriguez on this next home. Just stay put. So you and I are in studio apart. But together. In a few days after I get situated. The plan is for our first episode covering Cobra Kai to drop next Wednesday, the 21st. Yeah. And then after that weekly, bang, bang, bang, bang bang. So we'll be right back in our rhythm. It just happened that this really odd time. Of course, that's how things happen in life, but we won't miss a beat. And so I just have to ask, have you finished the season?
No, I'm up to episode four. Four and then we got a little sidetracked with some other projects. But I will be though what's today Monday? Yes. Yeah, I think within a couple of days. He's it'll be done. And by the way, just to be absolutely clear, and I've said this before on previous seasons, I would love to, you know, watch a few episodes and take a little break, watch a few take a little break. But the problem is the spoilers, man, the spoilers are out there like like landmines everywhere. So as much as I would love to savor the season and prolong that Cobra Kai feeling, unfortunately, I'm just gonna bust through it because I don't want to get those damn spoilers. You know,
that's how I feel. So I did my usual thing. This is becoming my usual, three episodes, the first night of drop Friday night, for the next night. And then I do three again, and I did it this year. We finished it last night. I'm so glad I did. It's a lot. I break it up a little bit. You know, I wait till the evening. I just do like three or four, three in a row. So happy it's done. You will not get these spoilers from me. Don't worry, I'll let you get there. But by the time we go into studio, I'm assuming you will have seen all 10
Absolutely. Yeah, I will. Like I said not that I would prefer it that way. But it just has to be that way because of the way our society is now. So what the damn spoilers
I know. And I will be jumping back in for notes on this next visit. And I want to give a quick shout out to a super fan of ours, Kosta Dino's. Oh yes, he is now a contributor. Ah, he is helping us with like, outline and a few basic notes. So we go back in and put our notes in there. I was looking to have more contributors help out the show with all the other shows that I have in the pipeline not to mention this move. So super excited to have a super fan churn contributor, great guy. So happy to have him helping us out.
Thank you, Costa. That's very nice of you. And very kind of you, you know, with people like Costa dinos, and our Patreon, by the way I love our recent Patreon episodes are really, really I'm listening to him with a tear in my eyes. I'm listening to them. I'm being serious. I really think that these people are really fantastic, because I feel like we're building up. You know, for a long time. It's just you and me. Right, but I like we're kind of building up a movement here.
I like that. So I like that. Let's keep it up talking to those fans. The superfans recently, the Patreon that was so much fun. And you realize, you know, they're insiders like us, they love the show, but they also love our take on it. And they're really loyal to us and not this loyal mean, they give us money, which is like unbelievable. So having him on the show was just so so special. And although I recorded those in June, but it was so perfect to roll all of those out right before the new season dropped. I felt
I think that's really great. And I I'm not just saying this as co host of Let's Talk Cobra Kai, but I really think it's really cool that you decided to do that, that you decided to interview our patrons. I think it's just really cool and like a really good treat that you offer our listeners.
Wow. Thanks, man. And hey, Monica. I hope that those three in particular enjoy that like Jason Kersey did a long time ago. So, you know, Adam, and Brian and Lindsey, they were fantastic. And thank you all for being that Patreon. And just true supporters of our show. And now you are a special guest on this show. Cool. So that is the plan. So so I'll give him the date. Again, when the first episode drops,
we will be dropping season five episode one of Cobra Kai. On September 21, that is Wednesday, September 21. And then effectively, then it's going to be then a 10 week, right? Just let everybody know, have a seat. Have a drink. It's gonna be 10 weeks for us to release the entire season because we'll be doing one a week. Yeah,
that is exactly right. And we'll be doing them live on YouTube. And if you get sneak peeks log in because that will be live and be sooner than the week because we might record on a different day. So that's always in play as well. Yeah. So it's the unedited live version. See Sal and I in the flesh, a lot of fun, a very different experience. For those of you that watch podcast, I don't do that. I'm an audio lover, and I consume my podcast on the go. So I don't like to view them, but people do so and so they have that option.
Well, what's funny is when you hear someone, and then you finally see them. I think this happens with everybody is when you finally see the person you've been listening to or the people you've been listening to. They don't look how you think they would look on it. Nobody ever looks how you think they were like,
so true. So true. While we're on social media, they could have seen us earlier but hopefully they weren't disappointed.
Hopefully not I am quite attractive.
There is that? Well, that's all I got my friend. It's just a quick update and announcement and a little bit more sharing behind the scenes on my personal life, which is really exciting. And yeah, I cannot wait for you to jump in studio in a few days and get these episodes rolling.
Oh yeah, cuz this season is especially exciting. I mean, I cannot believe that a show can kind of get more exciting as it goes along. But I'll tell you just so many, you know, just these four episodes I've watched, big time exciting and a lot of great humor to a lot of great he was
a great numerous so many things. I know you're six behind me and I'm going Oh my gosh there's so many talking points I was watching them last night going to and Sophia there's a great thing to talk about oh my gosh listen to this. So I have so many notes already building so many insight things. I am beyond excited. So we will delve in soon and so why don't you take us out your usual way?
