Announcer: Hide your kids. Lock the doors. You're listening to HR's most dangerous podcast. Chad Sowash and Joel Cheesman are here to punch the recruiting industry right where it hurts. Complete with breaking news, brash opinion, and loads of snark. Buckle up boys and girls. It's time for the Chad and Cheese Podcast.

Joel: Hey, kids, welcome to the too many Texas tacos episode of Chad and Cheese, HR's most dangerous and jet-lagged podcast.

Chad: Yes.

Joel: I'm Joel Cheesman.

Chad: And, I'm Chad Sowash.

Joel: On this week's show Finnegan can begin again. The Ladders is exposed and CareerBuilder loses another VP. Is anyone left over there? Hello? Grab a mint julep and bet on your favorite horse. We'll be right back after this word from Canvas.

Sound Effects: I'm not angry. I'm from Philly.

Joel: Do you remember the old Colon Blow commercial on SNL?

Chad: Yes.

Joel: I'm thinking you don't need Colon Blow when you have Texas food, tacos and burritos, and enchiladas. That's a different podcast, but you know what I'm talking about.

Chad: Yeah, I don't know what you're talking about. I haven't had a Colon Blow incident, so I don't know what exactly you put in those burritos, but ...

Joel: You didn't have the Micheladas, that's why.

Chad: Yeah, that's exactly right. Almost had a fucking-

Feffer: Such an asshole!

Chad: Almost had a head plant with one of those god damn scooters, though.

Joel: Oh, my god. Yeah, we got to tell the story. So Austin, like most metros in the US I guess, have these scooters, right? Lime, Bird, Lyft, and Uber, and Chad and I being old, middle-aged dudes-

Chad: Dude, I'm not old.

Joel: You know what? Well, we're older than the kids that typically ride around on these scooters and we said, "You know what, mother fucker? We're going to ride some of these scooters." And it took about four tries until we finally figured it out, but once we did, the Chad and Cheese show almost became the Cheese show because Chad almost died as evidenced by our buddy Kyle at Hireology who randomly saw us on the street riding around. But those things are pretty fun.

Chad: No, that was fucking hilarious. We're sitting at the bar after getting off the danger scooters and I get a text from Kyle. He's like, "Was that just you on Caesar Chavez racing on a scooter?" I'm like, "Yeah. Yeah, that was me."

Joel: Somehow they always ended up at a bar. I don't know if it's a magnetic pull thing or something in the steering.

Chad: Pretty smart.

Joel: But yeah, those scooters always ended up at a bar.

Chad: You.

Joel: Crazy, crazy.

Chad: Thanks to our peeps at Tile Roof for actually having us down for an unplugged session.

Joel: How fun was that?

Chad: That was a blast, man. I love that shit.

Joel: Unplugged. I like that. I like that. It was a private event. No recording, no private cameras, secret cameras. It was only for the people at the event. That was kind of cool.

Chad: Yep, yep. Allows people to open up, say exactly what they feel. Maybe not exactly. It allows us to. But without the fear of being recorded and put on the Chad and Cheese podcast.

Joel: Let's keep it with the food trend. Our buddies at Talk Push - pushing it real good - announced a deal with McDonald's in what Asian country?

Chad: In the Philippines.

Joel: In the Philippines. How many stores? Or how many restaurants?

Chad: Over 635 stores. Fuck.

Joel: Yet another death match, DEMOpocalypse, friend of the podcast who's hitting it big, and couldn't be happier for Max and company out there at Talk Push. Big shout-out to them.

Chad: Yeah. Love it man. Have a Kelly Robinson sighting. He actually was tweeting at us, and I don't know where the hell Kelly and Maverick have been. I think they've just been heads down at the new startup called Content Apps. So guys, whenever you're ready, you can come on Firing Squad. We'd love to have you.

Joel: Yeah. We'll put you in front of the squad and see what happens. I think they'd probably fair pretty well.

Chad: And if you haven't listened this week we actually had Sam Fitzroy from Maia Labs. It's not that Mya, the M-A-I-A Maia, Maia Labs. So check it out.

Joel: Yeah, yeah. And of course we'll get on him for the fact that he's named after for another company in our space that has well-funded coffers and is pretty well known. But standing firm to his ideals, Sam is not going to change the name of the company.

Chad: I dig it.

Joel: They're still Maia. The road show continues next week as you and I head to Portugal for TA Tech Europe. I can't wait. I've never been to Portugal. The death match line up is just sick. We got a real robot with Tengai Unbiased. We've got Kilts with

Chad: ID.

Joel: We've got the original Mya chat bot that's going to be there, and I'm spacing on the last one, as I always do.

Chad: Yeah, so with their crazy sourcing algorithm all the way from Ireland. So yeah man. We've got Mya, Tengai Unbiased. We have Candidate ID, and

Joel: And by the way did we give a shout-out to Gordon and his fundraising from Russia? Did we-

Chad: No.

Joel: Have we talked about that?

Chad: It wasn't from Russia. It was from Germany.

Joel: Let's give them a shout-out. Germany, sorry. It's probably being funneled out of Russia. Who knows?
