Joel: Bonjour Monsieur, Chad.
Chad: Bonjour, Mr- Fromage
Joel: Bienvenu...to the Chad and Fromage podcast from Paris France.
Joel: What's up listeners? We're here at the unleash conference in Paris. We've invaded the Meyer booth. We've taken their WiFi. We've taken their tables. We've stalled the sales process.
Joel: We've probably put them out of business because of our weekly show. We are the Chad and Cheese Podcast HR's Most Dangerous.
Joel: This week we're going to be talking the UNLEASH show. We're going to be talking Indeed shake downs and we're going to be talking Glassdoor mobsters. Stay tuned.

Joel: And we're back dude. If you hate shout outs, you're going to hate this part of the show [crosstalk 00:02:01], there's so many people to thank from our week in Paris. I'm going to start with UNLEASH in general.
Chad: Oh yeah.
Joel: They gave us a Mic, they gave us a stage, they gave us a voice and we appreciate that because it's not the safest choice.
Chad: No and they gave us some really good panelists. It's one of the things that I love when we work with shows and they want to be able to get their people up on stage.
Chad: We had Chris Wray from Sainsbury's. We had Adam Yearsley from Red Bull. Had Brandy Ellis from the SmashFly. So yeah, I mean we had... They even extended our period. We were supposed to have 30 minutes. We went to 45. We're talking about brand, experience and just really cool shit. So we will be dropping that Podcast.
Joel: They even gave us Lars, as our master of ceremonies.
Chad: Oh yeah.
Joel: He's like he doesn't just do anybody.
Chad: Yeah. You get it. Get a little Lars actions.
Joel: That's good. You got through a lot of shout outs there with our guests.
Chad: Oh good.
Joel: So that's good. Shout out to Paris.
Joel: It has been very good to us. The food's great. The wine is amazing. The city's beautiful if you haven't been to Paris, could not recommend it more. We're very lucky. Indianapolis does not have a lot of international direct flights and amazingly they have a direct flight-
Chad: It does.
Joel: ... to Paris.
Chad: I love it.
Joel: So we're really enjoying the town and the quick flight over to Europe. Quick shout out to Neely Verlinden.

Chad: See Max is French.
Chad: He leaves in Hong Kong now.
