S1 E4: "Fail fast, fail often." WTF?

Companies encourage their employees to "fail fast and often", but do they really mean it? Keith and Carl explore failure by sharing times when they failed, sometimes quite badly, and discussing what they learned as a result. Their discussion navigates down a winding road to risk taking in their current roles, and how they encourage their teams to fail. Or not.

In the segment "Keith and Carl Become Friends", snack food and concerts are topics that will oddly reveal a lot about them both...

Keith and Carl are marketing gurus and managers, bonded together by their adjacent cubicles. Together, they explore the absurdities of work and life by questioning corporate America and their life experiences that got them there.

Follow along as Keith and Carl humorously force a new friendship. Each episode includes a section called, "Keith and Carl Become Friends", the hosts will ask each other a mystery personal question. Their unscripted responses will shed light into their personalities, behavior and motivations. It gets real!

The heart of the show will center around a "Work Short Topic of the Day". Keith and Carl will explore various topics while providing their possibly misguided perspectives and interpretations, often a result of their perverse, yet oddly relate-able, childhood and young adult experiences.

Co-creator, writer & host of Work Shorts. Speaking of shorts... The older I get, the higher shorts sit on my thigh and with considerably less pockets. While less functional, I've been told they are more fashionable. A tanner thigh is cool, too, I suppose.
