Recruiting Animal Show - Recording - Feb 27, 2013
Yes, I'm the host - but is everything my fault? Is it my fault if the guest calls in from England on a bad line? I beg the guests, I implore them, over and over: "Sound is important" I say. Then on the show, the other schmoes tell me, "Shut up, Animal, we can hear him fine."
Well, the sound on this one is not that bad - but sometimes it's not that good either so that's my warning.
Steve Hart is a good guy -- or an ambitious one. My scheduled guest cancelled so I put out a plea for a replacement and who puts up his hand first but someone who had never heard the show. He didn't know me from Adam but he was ready to go-go and I didn't have much choice.
But it turned out well. I think. Except that I'm on a different line than the other callers and I have a bit of trouble engaging fully when the other guy sounds like he's at a construction site or the bottom of a swimming pool.
Steve made some listeners angry when he said that there are a lot of greedy young people in recruiting who will do anything to make a placement.
