The Summer Job

This week we feature THREE Correspondent stories all about strange, awkward, difficult, wholly memorable summer jobs. Also, Larry and Christian riff on some of their own narratives all about wild and odd places of summer employment - both southern and northern hemisphere featured!

Our Correspondents are - 1) Forest Gurlach with a story of misadventure and relative misery in the Alaskan fishing industry 2) Jocelyn Robertson brings us back to the '90's with a one-hour photo tale of complicated woe 3) Sam Berman rounds us out with a story all about doing anything for the money and the juice in Chicago. Enjoy!

Be safe, smart, and well out there. And remember, keep moving the story forward!
