    Day's Not Over

    Day's Not Over

    This week our theme is Winding Down. It's not surprise that us industry workers tend to drink more than most. We get off work, it's 4am, and our night IS JUST GETTING STARTED! Our first story, Michael Amico, co-host of another Straw Hut podcast called So I Heard This Interesting Podcast, interviews Jesse about a drunken run-in with an unknown family member after work. THEN Justin tells the not-so-happy tale of leaving work on the mean streets of New York.

    Poor Management

    Poor Management

    This week we dive into the world of poor management. Danny is invited to the studio to talk about a time he took a job only to find it was a front. Hookers, blow and more. Then Cheyenne was in a similar situation only to find that her "hostess" job was much more than what she signed up for.

Great fun

I feel ya and appreciate all the stories told. I used to run a 🥨 shop in a mall and now am a second shift custodian I a courthouse and see soooo many messes and deal with crabby public all the time... thanks for being here to listen to. Keep it up!

So F***in' Funny!!

Holy cow, this show is hilarious. I found it from a friends recommendation and I've actually never worked in the service industry, but based on what they told me I had to listen. This sh** is INSANE. Some of these stories are unbelievable. You have to listen. I will never interact with another service industry employee the same way again. Love Mr. Jesse Wood!

Needed this

Don’t always get the support I need in this industry. Sad to say i am happy to laugh at other people dealing with the same struggle. You’re not alone!!!
