    S2 E2: Carl's Career Change Dilemma

    S2 E2: Carl's Career Change Dilemma

    Working from home in a makeshift 'office' space crammed in the corner of his bedroom hidden behind piles of laundry... Fighting the 9 other living things in his house to be quiet for 10 hours a day... The feeling of isolation that comes with only connecting with people through some form of brain cell killing technology... May have driven Carl over the edge.


    In this episode, Carl passionately defends his new found excitement for a big career change. The career and industry he's targeting is littered with stigma - "it's unhealthy", "it's addictive", "it ruins relationships". In spite of this, Carl sees endless opportunity and a chance to reboot. As for Keith... he sees this as the beginning, or end, of a downward spiral. You must listen to find out the details!


    Also, Keith and Carl become even closer friends as they discuss socks, drugs and nudity. I bet you're thinking "WTF?"... Yeah, we are too.

    Salute to Restaurant Workers

    Keith and Carl are back!


    In Season 2, Keith and Carl step away from analyzing their corporate jobs - they may have had some explaining to do - to salute tireless workers in industries that are critical to our way of life. You can expect that they've spent time in many of these jobs - sometimes with success, sometimes not.


    During the Covid-19 pandemic, the Restaurant Industry and its workers have been severely impacted. Both Keith and Carl have worked in restaurants, either as food and drink slingers or bouncers. I'll let you find out who did what.. This is a salute to all of their restaurant friends, local food joints, dive bars and happy hour patio spots.


    Do you think you know Keith and Carl? Can you guess the superhero each would be if given the chance? Find out in the returning section "Keith and Carl Become Friends".


    And don't forget everyone's favorite section, well at least it's in the top 3, the "C-List". Carl gives everyone great tips on how be an awesome server and bartender.

    S1 E5: Personality Assessments: Carl's a big "D"

    S1 E5: Personality Assessments: Carl's a big "D"

    If you've been on this Season 1 journey, then you've gotten a sweet taste for Keith and Carl's personalities. However, when their personalities are assessed at their company and they share them with each other, things get real. Is there a "winner" when it comes to the best personality type? Is there resentment? Who's just being a "D"?


    In the segment "Keith and Carl Become Friends", gladiators, Vikings and cowboys are discussed and not in a classy way. Go figure. Also, someone possesses a unique skill, hidden away in their closet, and it's just begging to be used again.


    If you love loads of meetings, day after day, hour after hour, like Keith and Carl do... you'll love this C-List.

    S1 E4: "Fail fast, fail often." WTF?

    S1 E4: "Fail fast, fail often." WTF?

    Companies encourage their employees to "fail fast and often", but do they really mean it? Keith and Carl explore failure by sharing times when they failed, sometimes quite badly, and discussing what they learned as a result. Their discussion navigates down a winding road to risk taking in their current roles, and how they encourage their teams to fail. Or not.


    In the segment "Keith and Carl Become Friends", snack food and concerts are topics that will oddly reveal a lot about them both...


    Who's a fan of ice breakers at work?! Everyone, right? Check out this episode's C-List for a few great ideas.

    And it's Keith's turn to get introspective and deep on his professional development, assuming of course that he has received great anonymous feedback. Can you guess the feedback Keith receives?

Nice first episode. A little light on bidet talk but I guess you need to save some bidet material for future episodes. Keep it coming!
