Get Ready to Tune in To the Hottest New Podcast Debuting on Roku

By Dr. Sharon H. Porter | Monday, October 16, 2023 | 6:00 PM ET

Geeks, Geezers, and Googlization Podcast, makes its Roku debut on Monday, October 16, 2023 on the FAM TV Plus Network on the SHP Media and Broadcast Channel VP 1006.

Geeks, Geezers and Googlization Podcast shares interviews with many of the most fascinating and successful industry thought leaders about managing the convergence of the wired, tired, and technology. Topics include tips on managing disruptive workforce trends and how companies can recruit faster, hire smarter, and retain employees longer.

So what is Googlization and what does it have to do with managing people? Technology is being introduced at an accelerating pace. It is disrupting and changing the way we work. The definition of work itself is evolving and the skills required to do them are more advanced. At the same time, the melting pot of 5 generations – Veterans, Baby Boomers., Generation X, Millennials, and Generation Z – poses an unprecedented challenge for managers.

And because Millennials will soon make up nearly 75% of the workforce, many of the episodes will address the best ways to attract and engage them. But other topics will include recruiting strategies and hiring trends as well as best practices for talent acquisition, leadership development, and employee retention.

The goal with each episode is to provoke conversation and challenge the status quo. We won’t leave any stones unturned in our search for best practices of talent management. We hope you’ll accept our invitation to subscribe to our podcast, share the content, suggest future topics, and join the conversation.

Meet the Hosts

He’s thrilled by the possibilities that arise from the intersection of novel ideas, human ingenuity, and cutting-edge technology, envisioning a world where everyone’s quality of life is improved, education is advanced, poverty is eradicated, cancer is cured, our planet is protected, and so much more. However, the ever-increasing velocity of technological progress also fills him with dread, especially when considering the growing divide in knowledge, the shifting of power, and the widespread naivete among the masses.

He’s a frequent contributor to Forbes and Medium, and has been featured in Wall Street Journal, INC Magazine, Fast Company, Business Week, American Express OPEN, NFIB, Inc., Intuit Small Business, and Fox Business.

As the president and Chief Googlization Officer of Poised for the Future Company, a senior consultant with Dame Leadership, and the founder of the Googlization Nation community, Ira is committed to helping organizations thrive in the ever-changing world of work. He is also the host of the popular Geeks Geezers Googlization podcast, part of the People-Forward Network.

Ira’s recent book, Create Great Culture in a Remote World, co-authored with another industry expert, was just released in October 2022. His previous book, Recruiting in the Age of Googlization, now in its second edition, has been consistently nominated to best recruiting and HR book lists.

Jason Cochran

Fascinated with the exploration of human potential and the reimagination of work, he has co-founded technology companies, served as a psychologist and consultant in educational and business sectors, and co-hosts an award-winning HR and future of work podcast. Across those 15 years and counting, he’s helped lead change initiatives around culture, employee experience, leadership development, and digital transformation.

You can think of Jason as an innovator and contemplative advisor leaning on wisdom, creativity, coaching experience, and connection to elevate people strategy.

In his spare time, you can find Jason reading, doing crossfit, going to concerts, movies and sporting events, and exploring the world with his wife and four sons.
