Jobs Blow Podcast sounds pornographic, but like many job descriptions, isn’t what it seems. The podcast was born out of the frustrations of being laid off and restless, but was created to bring people together to support one another in a quest for something better. Everyone has their own unique story and Briana speaks to individuals at different points in their journey. From professionals who love their day jobs to dreamers paying their dues to reach a lifelong ambition - come to commiserate and stay to be entertained or inspired. Of course, no conversation would be complete without some tea spilt about crazy on-the-job experiences.
Getting Schooled on Your Resume, with Chris Harper, co-founder of ZippedScript
Chris Harper, co-founder of ZippedScript, stops by to talk about the number of people who lie on their resumes and shares his company's approach to flipping the script on education verification. ZippedScript offers global degree verification (in the U.S. and for any country in the world) instantly using new technology that connects directly to an institution’s database with 100% accuracy. Chris says this is only the beginning as they have plans to expand into other areas on the resume where people are even more likely to misrepresent the truth. So, if you didn't go to Harvard or didn't get that Master's Degree in Political Science, it's time to either update your resume or get to work on those applications.

The Devils in the Details, with financial analyst and author, Nick Girard
Jobs Blow gets a visit from Nick Girard, a financial analyst and author of the novel, “In The Beginning,” a retelling of the story of creation (Old Testament) where God is the antagonist and Lucifer is the rebel who established the true paradise. Raised as a Christian, Nick’s insider view of the cost of repeated catastrophes caused him to reexamine his childhood faith and reassess his view of God and his modus operandi – is God truly loving, or is it all a ruse to keep humans engaged and worshipful for his pleasure? Why does God allow tragedy on an almost daily basis? George Michael sang, "You gotta have faith." Nick disagrees.
