Chad (38s):

This is Jason Voorhees


Joel (40s):

And on this week show Zip gets a little pep in it step, Google's pay calculator and job boards strike back minus the ewoks of course. Wait a minute. That was Return of the Jedi.


Chad (52s):

Fuck.


Joel (54s):

It's the Friday the 13th edition. Chad, are you scared?


Chad (1m 0s):

No, not at all. I, if it was Michael Myers, and it was Halloween that'd be one thing, Jason Voorhees not scary. Yeah, no.


Joel (1m 8s):

The sixties hockey mask just isn't as scary as it used to be. Fortunately, it's not like a present day hockey mask. That would not be very scary at all.


Chad (1m 16s):

No, what they need to do is they need to do a Jason Vorhees, Jimmy John's commercial with Brad Garrett.


Joel (1m 24s):

Frickin Jimmy's John's.


Chad (1m 27s):

Jason Voorhees like shows up with one of their Jimmy John's wraps.


Joel (1m 30s):

The new wrap, it's got croutons, boss.


Chad (1m 33s):

Frickin' Jimmy's John's.


Joel (1m 35s):

Well speaking of Friday the 13th my first shout out, goes to Rudy Giuliani.


Chad (1m 39s):

Oh God.


Joel (1m 40s):

Everyone's favorite vampire. He is now on cameo. You can have Rudy on your phone for only $325. What better way to wish someone a happy birthday or scare the shit out of them than sending Rudy America's mayor to their mobile phone to say hi there.


Chad (1m 57s):

It says a little something. How do you think he's going to be paying his attorney fees via cameo?


Joel (2m 3s):

Yes. By the way, he's now more expensive than a Ivan Drago. Would you rather have a say happy birthday to you to Dolf Lungren or Rudy?


Chad (2m 12s):

Anybody, anybody, but Giuliani. Big shout out to Liz Scully. I got to say, Liz is one of the best commenters on my social posts. Thanks so much for engaging Liz. She has colorful commentary and snark that pretty much matches ours. I love that. Okay.


Joel (2m 30s):

Idk if you heard this, Chad, but football is almost here, baby. So I got a, I got a couple of shout outs. These are cult Indianapolis cults-related oh, sorry, sorry, Adam Gordon. We're gonna go American football here for a second. So if you missed Edgar and James, his hall of fame speech, it's fantastic. It was, it was great to me. It was inspirational. It was funny. So if you haven't seen that, I encourage you to do it.


Chad (2m 54s):

I'm going to stick with football, but I'm gonna go with my favorite NCAA, but not my favorite team, but, but they're, they're now getting closer to my heart Lane Kiffin and the Ole Miss Rebels and NCAA football, a big shout out for being 100% vaccinated, the entire team being a great example of team over individualism. Currently the state of Mississippi is vaccinated at 42% and is tied with Idaho as the lowest vaccinated state. You've got to love the leadership here. They didn't mandate it, although they did a shit ton of education and they talked about team.


Chad (3m 37s):

And that's one of the things that I think we're missing in the discussion right now is that everybody who's talking about, no masks, no vaccination. It's all about themselves. It's not about how you spread and how, how do you, how do you safeguard your community, your neighborhood, your family, right? So I think this is a great leadership by Ole Miss Rebels


Joel (3m 58s):

God, he had to bring this shit up. So I'm going to, I'm going to do a quick, a soap box. So I've been thinking about this a lot lately and it made me angry and it still does, but it started it starting to make me sort of sad because you and I are old enough to remember grandparents stories about the depression, about sacrificing during World War II, whether it be rationing food, or, you know, turning the lights out at a certain, whatever it was, right. There was a, there was a community, a sense of community that just isn't there today. And I just think it's really sad that we're a generation removed from people that really sacrificed for the community and the country.


Joel (4m 41s):

And that you're right now, it's all about the individual.


Chad (4m 44s):

People suck.


Joel (4m 46s):

People really suck.


Chad (4m 47s):

Who doesn't suck. Bas van DeHatred. He thank you for sharing a business insider story, entitled 3 explanations for the later labor shortage according to Morgan Stanley, you probably know that guy. Number one, school closures, but we're opening back up, right? So hopefully that's not going to be a problem here in the near future. There are many, many school board meetings where they're talking about mandating masks, right? There's there's a lot, that's going on today.


Joel (5m 16s):

One famous one here in Indianapolis, in my neck of the woods, McCourtsville.


Chad (5m 21s):

To a mismatch between the industry's hiring and the people who are actually looking for jobs. So there's this huge mismatch which we've had before. The problem is corporate America, you guys need to fix that. You've got the money. You need to fix that. And number three, people moved during the pandemic, but the jobs didn't. Right? So, and we're going to be talking about remote work. Some of these jobs can not be done remote. And some people moved during the pandemic and they're not remote workers. So there are some very compelling reasons here and no question and are ones that employers are going to have to fucking figure it out.


Joel (6m 2s):

Yeah. There was an interesting perspective in Business Insider today about, I guess the catch 22, if you will, of employers want to mandate it, but they're also in a talent crunch so they don't want to piss off employees and make them quit. So it's sort of this roundabout, like, we don't want to risk losing people because it's so hard to hire people and around we go. So I guess I sort of sympathize with some of the companies who feel like they're in that position.</
