Feed The Pig

Happy After Thanksgiving! Today, we've got a ton of listener feedback, including the question of our anti-desktopness, how one very creepy pig (man in a pig costume) may have traumatized the younger generations enough to avoid becoming CPAs, and a college professor's view of real-world experience v. theoretical learning. Of course, we have more news on the IRS, and their hunt for the perfect app (developer), and how more people are sending more letters to the IRS to discuss what they should do better! There's PPP fraud news, with an eye or two on Blueacorn, and Womply, a lesson on fraudulent marketing from AmEx. On a bubblier note, we've got some job listings, if you're keen on spirits of the wine, and beer varietals! In app news, we've got funding raises from simPRO, and Payhawk, and updates on Sage's latest release, Sage for Accountants. We'll also talk about AI, and audit, and give you some ideas about building stronger relationships in the Zoom Era! All this, and more! Grab some leftovers, and join us!
