Great series

I started listening to this series a couple of months ago and I truly enjoy it. First, I love the premise. Many jobs have always fascinated me, and I've wondered what the day-to-day work would be like in some of them. I began with the MOMA series, which I was fairly certain I'd like because I love modern art and museums. I did love it. I'm now listening to the "pot" series and the Medieval Times series, both of which I didn't think I'd necessarily enjoy, but I do. If I lived near a Medieval Times, I'd go because the interviews have really made it seem interesting. Second, generally the hosts are good. The current one (Jordan, I think) asks mostly decent questions, although sometimes he wants to joke too much and he steps on the answers.

new listener/great find

Having just discovered this podcast, I now have to work my way back through the archives. There are professions out there that don't come to mind when someone thinks "what do I want to be," but the interviewer brings them to life. His genuine interest in their stories fuels my interest as a listener, and every job has fascinating tales to tell. I love hearing the pride people are taking in their work, their enthusiasm for what they do, and the humanity that they remind us exists in all those working around us.
