How People Become Things

How People Become Things explores the relationship between people and the work they do. In each episode,, we meet someone — or sometimes some two — who share the story of how they came to do the work they do and what they think about that choice now. We discuss the ways in which the work they do works for them, how they knew that they’d made the right choice, and what kind of person they think would be a good fit for the job they have.

Episode 1: Mike and Mary and Their Honky Tonk Dream

That describes my first guests Mike and Mary Day aptly, I think. They've been moseying toward self-employment for the better part of their lifetimes, in one way and another (one way for him; another for her), picking up component skills sets that enable them to be very successful entrepreneurs. Hey, I'm not knocking anyone who makes a beeline toward career fulfillment. I'm just saying there's more than one way to...uh, own a business.

Since this is the first episode, I do spend a little time explaining the point of the podcast series, but only a little time; what I think this show is about and what you think this show is about and what this show ultimately ends up being about may be more than three different things.
