- Slack takes it in the nuts - again

Chad: And I'm Chad Right Said Fred?

Joel: I'm too sexy for my shirt. On this week's show, is Indeed going full gig? Slack continues to take it in the nuts, and, "Hello, Supreme Court. It's us, LinkedIn." Yep, I just dropped a Judy Bloom reference. We'll be right back after we pay a few bills.

Chad: And we're back.

Joel: And we're back here. Recording at the iCIMS yearly analysts/VIP/

Chad: Influence.

Joel: Customer event.

Chad: That thing.

Joel: And it just wanted to rain in Scottsdale, Arizona. One of the 30 days a year that it rains here, we get two of them. Whatever.

Chad: Not good for my golf game, not to be able to get out there.

Joel: But my massage game is rocking with this indoor activities. Got to give a shoutout to the masseuse that worked my tight-

Chad: Jerome?

Joel: Areas.

Chad: His name was Jerome, right?

Joel: Jerome and Bubba worked me over. Man, it's been a long couple days.

Chad: It has.

Joel: So, shoutouts.

Chad: Yes.

Joel: Big shoutout to iCIMS, obviously.

Chad: Oh yeah.

Joel: Class organization, class people, class product, always have a good time with them. You get the Jersey attitude with-

Chad: Yeah.

Joel: The soft touch of tech.

Chad: In literally opening the kimono. Susan just said that on stage.

This is where we open up the kimono-

Joel: It's kind of a naughty thing. I'm surprised in the Me too era that we can say "open the kimono so freely."

Chad: Susie Vitale can say whatever she wants.

Joel: That's true, she can.

Chad: She can do that. Big shoutout today to Matt Charney, it's his birthday. So he's turning 70.

Joel: Stay young and live forever, Matt. We love you, Man.

Chad: Stay young, Matt. This next one is kind of weird. Robert Half, big shoutout to the number one job board on Robert Half's new list?

Joel: Yeah.

Chad: Big shout, guess who it was?

Joel: Was it Robert?

Chad: It was Robert Half.

Joel: I didn't even know you could look for jobs on Robert Half's website.

Chad: All of the different, there's a huge staffing company, so they have to use all these platforms.

Joel: Great.

Chad: And then, to be able to rank themselves number one, on a list, I thought was fucking outstanding-

Joel: Usually, you try to be a little more incognito when you do these lists and want to promote yourself, but-

Chad: Yeah, you're in staffing, you just do what the fuck you want. That's just how shit works.

Joel: I mean, yeah, pity the fool that reads that and doesn't make the connection that it's self-serving. Man, who else was on the list?

Chad: I don't know, I just, I had to stop right there because that just blew the whole list for me.

Joel: Yeah, I think somebody commented, "Hello, 2012 called. They want their job board list back," or something.

Chad: As if Robert Half's job board was even on a list in 2012.

Joel: No doubt. Shoutout to Colin Day.

Chad: Colin, yes.
