No single-serving episodes today! We talk about: Jersey insurance for fanatics; the amount of dough in a bread price-fixing scheme; white noise copyright violations; what happens when a blind study is not so blind; and why you should probably pay more attention to your privacy settings. All this, a made-up word, and Scott going wildly off the rails.

Happy Valentines/Singles Awareness Day from the UnPodcast! Today we talk, primarily, about that most traditional of romantic topics: Human Resources. We discuss why Texans can't play with Google's Fine Art App; how a makeup line tried to co-opt the #MeToo movement; how your job might be killing you; and what really makes a person quit a job? Is it a bad manager, a bad boss, a bad manager, a bad job, or a bad manager? All this, a made-up word, and absolutely no snow pants!

In this episode of the UnPodcast, we're talking about the ups and downs of podcasting, entrepreneurship, and social influence. We talk about a nice letter we received via LinkedIn; the new Ear Buds podcasting documentary; we take a moment for our fans; Human Uber is now a thing; Amazon has a new autonomous grocery store; why streaming via Facebook Live can be illegal; using your social influence to poke the sleeping dragon; and YouTube's new monetization rules. All this and a made-up word, too!

In this episode of the UnPodcast, we're finally getting used to 2018! We talk about Scott's Expert-level gift-giving abilities; how a fake hair increased ad revenue on Instagram; Alison wonders why we have two different reactions when two different companies do, essentially, the same thing; and a daring attempt to make a restaurant that didn't even exist the top-rated restaurant in London. All this, with a made-up word and more!

In this episode of the UnPodcast, we have a couple of great stories... to start with... then things take a turn. We talk about Chewy pet food doing customer service really right; Alison's Endy mattress story; Facebook targeting ads that bait; the dangers of unsustainable restaurant delivery; Yelp's got a stupid policy that hurts everybody; and a hotel that charges for negative reviews. All this and more!

In this episode of the UnPodcast, we have a bunch of people being really... well... crappy! We talk about Mario Batali issuing apologies and recipes; Apple finally admits what most people knew; and losing points and benefits just because. All this with a made-up word and a listener question!

In this episode of the UnPodcast, we celebrate the arrival of 2018... more accurately this time. We talk about how we spent Christmas (spoiler: movies factor in quite a bit); Resolution tips for businesses and individuals; how Cards Against Humanity spreads the wealth; the story of Porch Pirates and Scott's Louis Vitton bag; what happened when the Penelec Electric Company accidentally added some... well, seven, extra zeroes to a customer's bill; how Canadians tweeted in 2017; and Scott's very own made-up word: Slice Cream. All this and a frozen Yule Log!

In this episode of the UnPodcast, we wrap up our "Live From the Front Room Series" (or do we????). We talk about Scott's UnResolutions (what? 46 5K Runs isn't enough for you people?); why Waffle House is a real need, and not just the best food ever; IKEA

In this episode of the UnPodcast, we're continuing our "Live from the front room series." We talk about popular emojis; how Facebook is really making messages better, but for real this time, they promise; how Google is helping to turn customers into advocates; Airlines pushing the creepiness envelope by using your personal information; and William Shatner being incredibly reasonable. All this, and maybe a made-up word, maybe a question... Whatever. It's our show. We do what we want.

In this episode of the UnPodcast, we're coming to you again live from our home library. We're back live on Facebook and talking about shots fired during our last episode; more things millennials are... wait, reviving? not killing?; expensive Squish gummies; HQ's CEO goes a little off the rails; a woman returns a kindness to a good samaritan; a made-up word, a listener question and absolutely nothing else.
