Here's a brief excerpt from this episode.
Nine-to-five, punch the clock, bring home the bacon and all that jazz. Let’s face it, work can be such a drag. Finding a job you like can be harder than finding inner peace. Even if you do find a job you love, there’s office politics, inter-office drama or a borderline psychopath lurking in a nearby cubicle. In other words, the working life provides plenty of material for another action-packed Nest of Vipers. This week’s team of fundits share tales of dishwashing, salmon gutting, international banking and working for a major pant concern. Hosted by filmmaker Danny Plotnick.
Late Breaking News: Nest of Vipers breaks out of the San Francisco micro-celebrity ghetto. Using the latest in modern technology, Pete Jordan (author, Dishwasher) joins the crew live from Holland for this episode.
Our guests include:
Anthony Bedard. Degenerate by night, international banker by day. In this episode Anthony Bedard reveals top secret international finance gossip circa 1994. He also admits to his Jakarta Post addiction and his fascination with the Clove cigarette trade. Since leaving the banking game, Bedard has gone on to run Past It Records and the current comedy label Talent Moat. He is the booker for San Francisco’s Hemlock Tavern in addition to playing guitar for the Hank IV.
Pete Jordan was a counter culture hero in the 90s. His wildly popular zine Dishwasher chronicled his quest to wash dishes in all 50 states. Hounded by major publishing houses for years, he finally broke down and revisited and re-chronicled his adventures in the recently published memoir also called Dishwasher. He currently lives in Amsterdam.
Kurt Keppeler has worked at an Alaskan Cannery, as a door-to-door encyclopedia salesman, sang with an Up With People-like singing group and performed dinner theater as a teenager. He currently plays guitar in the band Fierce Antler. This is his third stint on Nest of Vipers.
