Harry Joiner, the Marketing Headhunter, was due to be the guest on the Recruiting Animal Show on November 20, 2013. However, Harry had to travel unexpectedly so I asked Perri Gorman, our last week's guest, to return and she did.
The show was spoiled initially by BlogTalkRadio's new online host call-in software. I did a five minute introduction to the show that was totally garbled. No one could hear a thing. So I cut that out and posted the edited version here.
Perri is a lively speaker and the show moved quickly but of course there were complaints. This show sucks. Where's Jerry and Astringer? asked good friend Blake Cannon. Sorry, Blakey, I didn't think it sucked. I thought it was full of good topics and decent chit chat about them.
Mind you, Perri does have a bad habit of relying on the word s**t. She uses it instead of whatchamacallit or stuff. So does Jerry for that matter. Amber Eastman said she doesn't mind but Will Thomson Jr and I had to explain to her that such a profound dependence on one vulgar word stunts her mind, intellectually.
