  1. Pedro the Lion with Tomberlin

    Tbh, we didn’t mean to make our last episode before Christmas one that explores two fantastic singer-songwriters’ experiences growing up in very religious Christian homes and the effect it’s had on their art, but here we are — and it’s a damn fine talk! David Bazan (Pedro the Lion) and Sarah Beth Tomberlin (Tomberlin) are big fans of each other’s music, and jumped at the chance to meet via a Talkhouse Podcast episode. They got on so well, they’ve decided to hit the road together throughout February! You can find those dates at and hopefully catch them in your city; in the meantime, enjoy this conversation that takes in Sarah Beth’s experiences at bible school; David’s assessment of the biggest lie of Christianity; and finding personal salvation in … the Beatles. Check it out. Subscribe now to stay in the loop on future episodes of the Talkhouse Podcast. Thanks so much to all of you listeners for an incredible year here at the Talkhouse Podcast; we truly appreciate the millions of you that tuned in, gave feedback, and sent rad suggestions for artists you’d love to see appear on the show. Happiest of holidays! —Elia Einhorn, Talkhouse Podcast host and producer

    Today’s episode was recorded by Joe Darnaby in Chicago, David Bazan at his home, and Mark Yoshizumi at Hook and Fade Studios in Brooklyn. Our co-producer is Mark Yoshizumi. The Talkhouse Podcast’s theme song was composed and performed by The Range.

  2. The Interview Results Capture Meeting (Hall Of Fame Guidance) | Manager Tools

    This cast explains how to capture interview results in a fast and simple meeting.

    One of the things we have learned over the years is that bad hiring is easy, and good hiring is hard.

    It’s easy to hire someone who isn’t going to work out - just do one interview, don’t dig for details, don’t listen to the doubts you’re feeling, don’t interview for the soft skills.

    Of course, this is what happens far too often…and then when there are culture or discipline problems, everyone starts talking about changing the culture, or doing exit interviews.

    But the answer lies in smarter — and harder — hiring.

    In this cast, we share a simple way for a hiring manager to make a decision about a candidate.

    You’ll probably hear a surprise or two, so listen in … and you’ll also hear Horstman’s Law of Bad Hiring!

    This cast is one in a series to be called How to Hire, which is part of our larger set of series on Managing Talent.

  3. Never Rank Candidates | Manager Tools

    Don’t rank candidates as you are interviewing, individually or collectively. It biases the hiring process.

    It’s common to rank candidates as they go through your hiring process. Who looks "best" on paper? Who has the "best" experience? Who is doing the "best" during the interviews?

    All of these actions are ineffective. They bias interviewers individually and collectively, and are misleading.

    Here’s why, and what to do instead.

  4. Rolling Out the Manager Tools’ Trinity - Part 1 (Hall Of Fame Guidance) | Manager Tools

    This cast describes how to gradually implement Manager Tools’ Management Trinity (One on Ones, Feedback, Coaching - and Delegation!).

    We’ve been asked a thousand questions about what to do and when to do it when it comes to the Management Trinity, and we’ve finally gotten frustrated enough to do something about it.

    We assumed that a lot of the ideas we’re going to share here just made sense, and managers were taking the parts of the Trinity step by step, mastering each one, and adding new parts as they were able.

    And then we got an email complaining that putting ALL FOUR of the Trinity in place all at once was "JUST TOO HARD".

    And, that listener was right — it was too hard — and we weren’t helping by not sharing our guidance.

    We’ve shared these ideas with hundreds of corporate client managers — and now it’s time to share it with everyone.

    Step by step, here’s how you do it.

    If you ask us, if there WERE a Manager Tools Hall of Fame (HOF), this cast would be in it.

  5. One-on-Ones - Part 2 (Hall Of Fame Guidance) | Manager Tools

    Mark and Mike continue their discussion on the single most effective management tool available today - the weekly One-on-One.

    In the podcast, we refer to both a written summary of the key points for conducting One-on-Ones, as well as a form useful for documenting your One-on-Ones.

    Mark and Mike updated the One on One Podcasts in 2012.

    The old podcasts have been archived and are no longer available.
