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, rash opinion, and loads of snark. Buckle up boys and girls, it's time for the Chad and Cheese Podcast.

Joel: It's so hot. Damn it's hot in the Mid-West right now.

Chad: It's so hot.

Joel: It's about to get hotter when we burn up these microphones with podcasting brilliance. Welcome to the Chad and Cheese Podcast everyone, I'm your cohost Joel Cheesman.

Chad: And I'm Chad Sowash.

Joel: On this week's episode, there's some serious Pac Man fever in the programmatic advertising space, kids in Europe can now go to the worst summer camp in human history, and we debate who's nuttier, the Swedes or Elon Musk.

Chad: So Amber from Canvas, was supposed to come get a T-shirt. She's been giving me hell on Twitter about getting a T-shirt, we had a box full of them, and she never came and got one.

Joel: She had to be called away, I believe. I don't know if it was her fault, but yeah.

Chad: It was totally her fault.

Joel: For as long as it took me to get a Goddamn cuzi, yeah. She can lose out on the shirt. Dude, I've never been so excited to get to the end of the show, as I have at the beginning of this show. Our wrap up of just ridiculous stories is unprecedented, I think, in the history of our show.

Chad: It is pretty fucking funny. Let's go ahead and hit shout outs then.

Joel: Yeah.

Chad: Let's do this. All right so first shout out to Tom, who's the head of product over at Appcast, he loved that we would take Appcast over Glassdoor all fucking day. Easy decision Tom. And then Matt Lozar said that, he liked the Appcast all fucking day comment, and we should put that on a T-shirt. So I'm thinking we might be able to kind of have this Appcast logo on the back, Chad Cheese on the front, and then it just says Appcast all fucking day. I love it.

Chad: Yo, that' John is so lame.

Joel: I love it too. Can we still give shout outs to RecFest, I know that it's been a week or so, but I think we're still partying on the inside from our time in London. Jamie and company did-

Chad: Yes.

Joel: ... a great job, we loved our time there in London, and look forward to future RecFests as well as a potential global domination plan.

Chad: You never know, right? You never know.

Chad: I came home to some SmashFly goodies. Had some caramel corn, had some... this crazy tea device, I don't drink tea, but Julie loves it. And then go figure, Jay Z sends us chocolate balls, chocolate salty balls. Chocolate covered Bourbon balls, so good stuff. And a bunch of other stuff, but I just had to call this out.

Joel: So the best of both worlds.

Chad: Yeah, why not.

Joel: Bourbon balls, that's nice. That's nice Jay Z. The good news is, we both received our box of goodies at the same time. Usually, one of us gets screwed over, or one of us has to wait. So they were good with the timing on this one, that was nice of them.

Joel: A shout out to the boys at Talent Nexus.

Chad: Yes.

Joel: Man we've talked a lot about the cameras following us around, but hype videos, a little documentary. Can't wait for that stuff to come out. If you want to sign up for the download of the, I don't know, Chad and Cheese movie,-

Chad: Yeah.

Joel: ... or whatever we're calling it, head on over to chadcheese.com, click the link and put in your name, and you'll get the copy.

Chad: Yeah. Or, go to talentnexus.com/chadcheese. Too damn easy, right?

Joel: Yeah, yeah.

Chad: Also-

Joel: Run with Talent Nexus anyway, they're good folks.

Chad: Really awesome that Gem had us over, and Rob Prince showed us around for two solid days. From pub to pub in most cases, but thanks guys, really appreciate the hospitality. That was amazing.

Joel: And Rob is what, 27? I'm sure the last thing he wanted to do was escort around two old white dudes in London. Yeah, that's nice.

Chad: Dude, we were going from pub to pub. I don't think he had an issue.

Joel: Yeah, yeah. It was a pretty good time.

Chad: Yeah.

Joel: It's hard not to have a good time there in jolly old London.

Chad: Yeah. And that being said, Lisa Scales wins the free beer for a year from Talent Nexus.

Joel: Did she pick beer? Did she officially pick beer?

Chad: I think she's officially picked beer, but-
