Great inside look
This podcast is very informative and I enjoy the variety of guests.
If "binge-listening" is a thing, that's what I did with Hired. As a tech product manager who finds company culture, hiring processes, and career evolution all fascinating topics, Hired is perfect. The interviews are intelligent and the audio is pristine. Would love to hear more about hiring in fields other than tech (how are lawyers, teachers, police officers, etc hired?) but understand that ultimately Authentic Jobs is geared toward the tech community. Keep up the great interviews.
Really interesting interviews with tech leaders, and not too long, but the audio quality is terrible--metallic squeaking noises when the interviewees are talking. Get an audio engineer!
