Chad: I love it, I love it. So NCAA football, I've got to start off with this. Sackett is still in the fetal position, over in the corner after the Buckeyes whipped the shit out of Sparty, dude.

Joel: I totally missed giving him shit for that. I totally spaced.

Chad: That's why we have a podcast, so we can do it here together with


Joel: A podcast.

Chad: Podcast.

Joel: That's all right, we'll be routing for them against Michigan here soon.

Chad: Yeah, no, I mean, either way it's good because we're going to beat both of them. Also, last weekend Iowa played the team up north, so I texted Adam Godson from Cielo, the tech god over at Cielo, and I'm like, "Dude, are you glued to the TV?"

Chad: And he was like, "No, I'm not quite glued to the TV." And he sent me pictures from the fourth row in the big house. He was at the game with the family fourth row, in the big house.

Joel: Fourth row? There's like a million rows in that stadium.

Chad: Yeah, no, he was like on a the field, dude. That was good shit. But it was hilarious because I just texted him, he's a Hawkeye fan, you know, "What are you doing Hawkeye fan?" It was a boring ass game so hopefully they had a good experience.

Joel: It was close at least.

Chad: Close but boring as fuck.

Joel: Boring as hell.

Chad: Yeah.

Joel: Good old-fashioned defensive battle.

Chad: Yeah.

Joel: Big time.

Chad: Ready for shout outs?

Joel: We're ready for shout outs, I guess.

Chad: So the very first shout out has to go to my daughter, Ema-

Joel: Nice.

Chad: Who is turning 18 and she has the best birthday ever. It is binary and it symmetrical. It is October 11, 2001. Which is 10, 1-1, 01. Amazing. Happy Birthday, Ema. She's going to be enjoying her new super Beetle, or Beetle, I'm sorry. Beetle Turbo-

Joel: That is kind of a super Beetle. I've driven in it. The tinted windows are nice.

Chad: Yeah, it is the mac daddy of all Beetles.

Joel: If she wants a career in drug dealing, she can do it.

Chad: We don't need that, thanks. We don't need that. So happy birthday, Ema.

Joel: I'm going to give a shout out to our buddies at Candidate.ID for giving you a shirt and neglecting to give me a shirt.

Chad: Oh, you didn't get one?

Joel: That's some bullshit.

Chad: Oh, well it's a hoodie.

Joel: I have to attribute it to my golf clap that I gave Gordon in their firing squad debut. Yeah, thanks, man. I appreciate it.

Chad: Not to mention, I am now an investor from the whole crowdfunding thing. So not only did I give them the big applause, I also gave them money because I believe in the organization. So of anybody hears me talking good about Candidate.ID, I mean, let's just be transparent-

Joel: Full transparency.

Chad: I want them to do incredibly well. Let's talk about that.

Joel: Now, the shirt wasn't in response to being an investor.

Chad: No.

Joel: Okay. All right.

Chad: It was in response to-

Joel: For being Chad Sowash.

Chad: Meeting Tim Sackett. Actually had this fishing vest thing that he had on during HR tech that had a Candidate.ID patch on it and I was making fun of him and then a few days later I get a hoodie in the mail. So that's how we do things. We talk about beer, we talk about swag, and it comes in the mail. Big shout out to Zach Jeans, VP of marketing from AbsenceSoft. Believe it or not, that is his name, Zach Jeans. He was really geeked out to meet us in Vegas.
