Ancient IRS Computer Systems, How to Get Hacked as a CPA, & News from SuiteWorld 2018

David Leary joins the podcast for the first time as my new co-host. We discuss the IRS' ancient computer systems that caused the crash on tax day, a case study of a CPA who got hacked by a malicious "keylogger" program, news from Blake's visit to NetSuite's SuiteWorld 2018, and a robot that can assemble an IKEA chair. Now there's a great use of automation! We'll be uploading weekly (we hope), but not always on video, so be sure to subscribe.
