Jobs Blow Podcast

Jobs Blow Podcast

Jobs Blow Podcast sounds pornographic, but like many job descriptions, isn’t what it seems. The podcast was born out of the frustrations of being laid off and restless, but was created to bring people together to support one another in a quest for something better. Everyone has their own unique story and Briana speaks to individuals at different points in their journey. From professionals who love their day jobs to dreamers paying their dues to reach a lifelong ambition - come to commiserate and stay to be entertained or inspired. Of course, no conversation would be complete without some tea spilt about crazy on-the-job experiences.
