I’m Jon, and I love nothing more than listening to someone with an interesting or unusual job talk about the ins and outs of that job. So I created a weekly podcast that features interviews with people from all across the employment spectrum. You’ve likely heard the figure of speech “Jack of all trades” referring to someone who is versatile and adaptable to a wide variety of tasks. That’s what I hope to become by interviewing people with as many different jobs as possible. Except, I’m Jon, not Jack. Welcome to Jon of All Trades. New episodes post every Wednesday.

    Ep. 355: Jon Eks Solo – An Ode to Summer

    Summer is my favorite season by far. And it’s this time of year that I start to feel a tinge of melancholy because I know this magical time is ending, which also happens to coincide with my birthday. Why do I love summer so much? I answer that question from as many angles as possible...

It’s just like any other bar, except you order cannabis products instead of alcohol products. Cool, right? Josh and Stacey certainly think so as they’re the very first ones to establish such a...
