1/26/2022
Europe is a hot mess right now. Boris is apologizing. Putin is (probably) invading. Belgium is rioting.

Firing Squad: BeRemote's Vivek Nigam

1/24/2022
Work from home is a thing. Maybe you've heard. This means vendors hoping to support employers with a remote workforce have a lot of tailwinds going in the right direction. However, like most things, there are going to be big winners and some big losers, and everything in between. That brings us to BeRemote, a startup hoping to take advantage of this red hot trend. Do they have what it takes to survive Firing Squad? Gotta listen to find out.

Cult Brand REDUX

1/19/2022
The Cult Brand series of podcasts have been some of the most popular episodes in the portfolio.

Buckle-up, boys, and girls. We have a new partner, a new cohost, and a new focus that's going to take the employment brand to a whole new level. Want to know more?

Modern Recruiter Tech Stack w/ Madeline Laurano

1/17/2022
At first glance, I didn't think this report would be very eye-opening. I. WAS. WRONG. The report stirs discussion around hard questions many HR and TA leaders have been asking themselves like. What happens when HR leaders are severely disconnected from front-line recruiters? What happens when it's harder to find recruiters than developers? What happens when recruiters turn down working for your company due to a shitty tech stack? Well, that day has arrived, and Aptitude Research's new report...

SeekOut vs. Paradox?

1/14/2022
One of these topics is not like other podcast topics. A new unicorn. An acquisition. A startup getting funded. Google ticks off their workers. Pay transparency. Selling farts on TikTok for $1,000 a bottle. If you guessed bottled farts, congrats. Now listen to this episode, covering all the above, and featuring Seekout, FactoryFix, ZipRecuiter, Bullhorn, and more.

Euro Extravaganza '22

1/12/2022
This show has it all. European predictions for 2022 (Oh boy, Monster's not going to like this). LinkedIn news (Clubhouse isn't going to like this either). A French unicorn named PayFit.

The guys also dig into some recent startups - Hinterview and SonicJobs - that have garnered millions in funding.

GREEN ROOM w/ Tim Sackett

1/10/2022
What's better than three middle-aged white guys yelling at kids to get off the lawn? How about three middle-aged white guys talking about colonoscopies, Betty White, the state of COVID in America, and video games from the '80s? That - and much more - are what Chad, Cheese, and Tim "Sackadomus" Sackett did in the green room before their prediction show. And we recorded all of it. You're welcome!

Predictions 2022 w/ Sackadomus

It's that time of year again: Predictions! Where'd we get it right and (mostly) wrong in 2021? And what are the bold guesses we're making for 2022 for the world of work? Like always, Chad & Cheese have enlisted the help of a longtime vet and good friend Tim "Sackadomus" Sackett to give his two cents on what the crystal ball says for next year.

Firing Squad: Grayscale's Ty Abernethy

1/5/2022
You're probably texting right now, aren't you? And if you're not texting now, you will be soon. That's why text recruiting remains such a hot solution. And that's why industry veteran Ty Abernathy launched Grayscale. But there's a lot of competition out there - hello Canvas, TextRecruit, Emissary, Rectxt, and the rest - so escaping the Firing Squad with his pride intact is no guarantee. Did Ty survive, and what about that name, the one that sounds more like an investment firm or a bad '80s...

Paradox Unicorns while Randstad Face Plants

12/31/2021
Turns out, recording this podcast was the only thing standing between Chad & Cheese and a bottomless bottle of Blanton's to ring in the New Year ... so hold the small talk and get to the point. This show is tight, discussing everything from Paradox' latest unicorn-birthing round of investment, fundraising by Monster - wait, who? - and, well, we had to end the year on some TikTok chatter, didn't we? Happy 2022, ya' filthy animals! As always, a special "cheers" to sponsors Sovren, JobAdx and...

T-Mobile vs. JB Hunt

12/24/2021
Ho, ho, holy hell it's been a while since Chad & Cheese were on the mic together, but the boys are back in the saddle again, tackling the following topics like only they know how: Facebook shutting down its job board outside North America, Kronos getting hit by a ransomware attack, Turing becoming the latest unicorn, JB Hunt playing Scrooge, T-Mobile playing good ol' St. Nick and the Army kicking COVID's ass. Hallelujah! Holy shit! Where's the Tylenol!!! As always, your favorite podcast is...
