Want a new job? Good with your hands? Learn about different trades in this episode. Slow dialog: 1:24 Explanations: 3:35 Fast dialog: 16:39 Jeannine: What are you going to do now that you’ve graduated from high school? Orlando: I’m going to trade school. My father was a stone and brick mason and my brother is a mechanic, but I think I’m going to try something different. Jeannine: Like what? Orlando: Maybe I’ll study to become an electrician or plumber. Those are skills that are always in demand. Jeannine: Don’t they have long apprenticeships? Orlando: Yes, but it’s better than training to be a machinist or technician. It’s easier to open your own shop as an electrician or plumber. Jeannine: With your skills, you can always get a job as a carpenter. Orlando: I think carpentry is a dying art. Most people don’t get furniture or other things custom-made anymore. Jeannine: You know, you could always take a completely different path, learning a completely different skilled trade. Orlando: Like what? Jeannine: You could become a medical or dental technician or even get a cosmetology degree. Orlando: Are you serious?! Would you want these hands cutting your hair? Script by Dr. Lucy Tse
In a time where we're all threatened by a rhetoric of hate from the people in power; A Gay And A NonGay challenges many of our differences head on and promises that no matter who you are, or what you're into (Bruce Springsteen or Britney), love is love and gay and nongays can be friends. </div><div><br></div><div>An independent podcast from James Barr (@imjamesbarr) and Dan Hudson (@DanHudson).
