Just Say Nyet (Ep. 255)

  For Father’s Day, I thought it might be fun to talk with the son of a father who changed the world. Michael Reagan is my guest on the podcast this week, and believe me, he has stories. He also has a terrific book called Lessons My Father Taught Me, and a perspective on our country that I think is worth sharing. PS. Sorry I’ve been scarce. Dirty Jobs is still in full production mode, and I’ve been on the road constantly. More about that later. PPS. Dad – I’m coming to see you this weekend. Don’t worry, there will Read More

So, I walk inside, where a millennial named Allyssa invites me to take a seat. “Would you Read More

Four years ago, I was invited to Hobbs, NM to participate in a “Distinguished Lecture Series,” wherein I discussed a few of my more memorable Dirty Jobs, and shared my take on the state of skilled labor in America. It’s not often the “dirty jobs guy” gets lumped in with a collection of “distinguished” speakers, but I was happy to address the good people of Hobbs, and delighted to drag them through the sewer that is my resume. Coincidentally, I was there on the same day the town was considering an ambitious proposal to get shop class back into their Read More
