Welcome back!

Do you remember the dark days of getting your first part-time job? How about the rush of getting paid (possibly) minimum wage, only to blow it on useless junk each week? Well then we’ve got the episode for you! Listen as Adam and Matt recall their epic list of part-time jobs spanning their teenage years. From babysitting, to bait shops and skate sharpening to Sears, our hosts detail the ups and downs of early employment. Plus, Adam shares his visit to the Canadian Forces frigate, the HMCS St John’s, and impressively wasn’t kicked off for acting out scenes from the film Under Siege!

    We were making 9.75 at that job (which I thought was amazing at the time). The boss smoked weed all day which drove him insane. Adams words cannot capture how loud that place was. I did actually go back to KFC after walking out of that factory.
