1:02:17Survival Jobs: Is it a a phrase from multi-hyphenate jargon, career pivot or even a problematic term? Culturally, young people have shifted from gaining work experience (and paying for cars, college or just supporting the family) to gaining the "right" kind of work experience. Even as the pandemic displaced so many workers, there are stigmas around what’s a “worthy” job and the "right" way a career should progress. According to backstage.com a “survival job is a job someone takes to pay the bills while pursuing a career they love.” Co-hosts Mallory, Austin and Katherine circle up to discuss a listener suggested topic (thanks Kristen!). We parse this definition and more by exploring the complexities, hang ups and privilege tied to the concept. Send your thoughts and questions to [email protected]

Chef's Special w/ Chef–Veteran–EMT Rory Leahy
58:57This week we find the special ingredient that makes Rory Leahy such a great guest! Rory started his career in the army leading him to a eye-rolling stint as a quality control lab technician (read: taste tester). He loved his role as an EMT while waiting for a position to open up to be a firefighter. An eye injury meant that dream would never come true, so he ditched the low-paying gig (Yes, most people working in healthcare make minimum wage). Today, he's found success as a chef running his own kitchen at Swill Inn in Chicago. Co-hosts Austin, Mallory and Katherine talk with Rory about finding Buddhism, finding your place in a role, and how what we're "meant" to do is sometimes the skill we take for granted. Eat, Drink, and meet Rory at Swill Inn in Chicago: www.SwillInn.com Check out Rory's food creations and ADORABLE daughter Lilly: @Gordondadsay Check out the book: Buddhism For Dudes: A Jarhead's Guide to Mindfulness
