Chad: About five of you, that's good.

Joel: That's awesome!

Joel: So, for those that don't know, we typically start our show with shout outs.

Chad: Typically, yes.

Joel: And, we normally don't start with shout outs at the TA tech show, but we're going to try something new.

Chad: Yeah.

Joel: We could fail miserably, but we're going to try it.

Chad: No, I don't think this is going to fail miserably at all, because the first shout out is going to go to-

Joel: Well, tell them how it's going to work.

Chad: Yeah, yeah, yeah.

Joel: So, at the show, we do a podcast, we can't give away stuff, right. So, here today if you get a shout out, you get a beer. If you don't drink, we have Peeps. So, if you want Peeps-

Chad: You can have a Peep.

Joel: ... you can grab a Peep, and you can take anything from Nexxt that you want.

Everybody understand? We're good?

Chad: Except for Steve Kraut, because nobody wants him.

Joel: And, he's already drunk, so he doesn't need anymore beer. Okay. Alright. I'm ready. I think we're ready for shout outs.

Chad: Yeah. So, if you've listened to the podcast before, you know Joel hates millennials.

Joel: Hate those entitled little bastards.

Chad: Hates millennials, but we got a lot of them listening, and I think they just love the pain of getting through the show as Joel hates on them. Anyway, one of our-

Joel: They have a sense of humor though.

Chad: ... millennials-

Joel: ... which, is good.

Chad: Yes. One of our millennial listeners actually gave us personalized certificates of participation.

Joel: We got a trophy from the millennial generation, which is very nice. So, to Kyle from Hireology-

Chad: Is it Hireology?

Joel: This beer and shout out is for you, my friend.

Chad: Yeah. That was funny shit. That was very funny shit. Good job.

Kyle: I'm actually not old enough to drink. No, I'm just kidding.

Chad: You're in Vegas.

Joel: This Peeps for you, baby.

Chad: This Peeps for you.

Kyle: Thank you.

Chad: Next. Where's Thad at?

Joel: Next, get it, I saw what you did there.

Chad: Yeah. Where's Thad at? Thad's not here? Okay.

Crowd: He's CEOing.

Joel: He's CEOing.

Chad: CEOing. Aw, that sucks.

Joel: That's alright. We'll get him later. Well, we can embarrass him when he's not here, though.

Chad: Yeah. So, he's the only CEO that I know, who does a Gollum impression, and just he loves it. Hopefully, we can get him to do a Gollum impression, like a promo for the show.

Joel: Go up to Thad and say, "Can I hear your Gollum impression."

Chad: And, he gets excited.
