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.
