Episode No. 1: John Starkey

Along the way of developing this project, I decided I want to do more podcasting and less blogging — I think describing the jobs people have is best left to them, as opposed to me culling the Internet (don’t worry; I’ll still blog when I have what appear to be relevant thoughts, which may not be that often).

I’ve lined up a few different guests, so if this concept gets going, we can all stop and thank (me more than anyone) my first-ever guest on “All In A Day’s Work,” Mr. John Starkey. John is president of the U.S. Poultry and Egg Association, and I contacted him out of interest regarding the “feather industry.” I learned a lot in this interview, which you can listen to above — on topics as far-reaching as bird research, national expos, and the best and worst parts of John’s job.

If you’re interested in the Poultry Expo, click here for more info (it’ll be January 23-27, 2012 in Atlanta).

When we were setting up the interview, John also sent me this video (produced by his organization) regarding the process of a chicken going from farm to supermarket. It’s a little long, but interesting. Take a watch:

Thank you for checking out the first edition of “All In A Day’s Work” — and remember, you can always subscribe to the podcast via iTunes.

What’s This All About?

This is a blog and podcast series about the work we all do: the highs, the lows, the effectiveness, the intrigue, the models, the double speak, and the passion. The point is to have discussions with people in those fields about their life and experiences. And hey, sometimes the stories might be funny, too. In the spring of 2013, the new posts started to fade, but you can find them all on iTunes.
