Jobs Blow Podcast

Jobs Blow Podcast

Jobs Blow with Briana and Josh sounds pornographic, but like many job descriptions, it isn’t what it seems. With aspiring writer and marketing professional Briana Haas and funny-man Mr. Josh Hyman as your HUMOR Resources team, we present the podcast for "Dreamers with Day Jobs." Born out of Briana and Josh's own personal highs, lows, and frustrations in the endless pursuit of their dream careers, each episode is a mix of entertainment, information and inspiration, as guests share their own unique journeys. Tune in for tales of layoffs, promotions, opportunities, firings, hirings, amazing strokes of luck, and crazy jobs that suck. Created to bring people together to support one another in their quest for something better, no conversation would be complete without some tea spilt about hysterical on-the-job experiences.

  • Dr. Death

    We’re at our most vulnerable when we go to our doctors. We trust the person at the other end of that scalpel. We trust the hospital. We trust the system. Christopher Duntsch was a neurosurgeon who radiated confidence. He claimed he was the best in Dallas. If you had back pain, and had tried everything else, Dr. Duntsch could give you the spine surgery that would take your pain away. But soon his patients started to experience complications, and the system failed to protect them. Which begs the question: who - or what - is that system meant to protect? From Wondery, the network behind the hit podcast Dirty John, DR. DEATH is a story about a charming surgeon, 33 patients and a spineless system. Reported and hosted by Laura Beil.
