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. 307: Zach Eastman – Podcaster, Filmmaker, Old Time Hollywood Enthusiast
Zach Eastman is my good buddy. Chief among the reasons he’s a good buddy of mine is that he’s just about the only person I’ve ever known (besides my own father) who can talk about W.C. Fields for three hours with me. Which we did on his show! You can find that right here. Zach...
Ep. 306: Jonathan Stine – Managing Partner at The Paul Wilkinson Law Firm
Jonathan Stine is someone I met because our kids became friends in preschool. Turned out we had a lot in common, and the two of us and our two wives hit it off pretty much immediately. When we’d have parties, he’d ask my friends weird questions like, “Which insurance company do you have?” For the...
Ep. 305: Andrew Orvedahl – Comedian, TV Star, Game Designer
Andrew Orvedahl is the first comedian I was ever close to getting on the show. Seven and a half years ago after I interviewed Brandi Shigley, she asked me if I was interested in interviewing Andrew Overdahl. Of course! was my reply. She called him, left him a voicemail, and then nothing materialized. We were...
Ep. 304: Jon Eks Solo and in a Creative Funk
This show has grinded to a halt. Literally, I’m having a hard time generating any momentum with potential guests, my writing process is laborious and tortured, and while I have plenty of TIME, the ideas simply ain’t coming. So, this week is an attempted exorcism. I turned on the mics before I could mentally set...
Ep. 303: Dana Shierstone – Chemical Engineer, Geochemist, Cannabis Entrepreneur
I reconnected with Dana Shierstone at my 21st high school reunion and I’m glad I did because this is a conversation with a delightful surprise around every corner. When Dana and I started talking, I knew she worked in the cannabis space, but I had no idea she had a background as chemical engineer for...
Ep. 302: Adam Salzman – Founder and CEO of AdventureEXP

Hilarious and insightful
I love Jon’s effortless interview style. He’s got great guests and asks the questions I’d like to ask. Good stuff here!
Enjoyed the Kathy Walker interview
Very nice job chatting with the news director of KOA in Denver.
The hard work is never done, the dues have got to get paid! Jon takes you through it with style and great questions. Well done, sir.
