Where I Work

Spend an hour or so with a professionally confused poet for an interview-style podcast with friends, family, colleagues, neighbors, and complete strangers as we discuss our careers and try to uncover how, why, or if work defines us.



Episode #8 Meal by Meal

John entered the Air Force just two months before 9/11 and is currently a Field Examiner for the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs. Before that role, he was a Federal Police Training Sergeant for over four years, and prior to that, he was a Security Forces/Military Police Officer, where he guarded intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs) in Minot, North Dakota. Crazy, right? Tune in to find out about John’s “meal by meal” strategy, which he implemented during his basic training in San Antonio, TX in order to help him and all of the members of his flight get through an extremely difficult and demanding time. You do not want to skip over this episode — John provides a perspective that was truly missing from the show.
