What Do You Do? is the conversation opener of choice for many Westerners where work often defines us. What if you can't describe what you do? What if the way you make your income and see yourself are different? In an economy that is forcing constant job changes, does it become more imortant to figure out what special value you offer to the world (marketplace)?
Guests:The uncategorizable and comedic artist Marc Horowitz (best known for slipping his cell number and “dinner w/ Marc” into a Crate & Barrel catalog and then dinner touring the nation, (CNN, The Today Show). The multi-talented (host of Bay Native Circle on KPFA, Advisor to the Sundance /Alfre Woodard film Follow Me Home) Lakota Harden works as a counsellor to youth by day, and tours the country as a speaker. She grew up 8 miles from Wounded Knee in an intensely activist family and believes she isn't captured properly by the word "activist". "I was born into the truth about this country. How can I know the truth and not speak it, live it, do something about it?" Our third special guest wasdescribed to me by a conversator as "the best professor I ever had." She has thought a lot about vocation, and her own is helping people examine their assumptions. (Rhetoric , UC Berkeley) Marc, Lakota, and our guest philosopher join Heather and you (the people formerly known as the audience) for this great conversation.
