Persuasion 141 | Get Appointed to Your Dream Job (No Experience Necessary)

Show Summary

Last week the news outlets were all abuzz with the announcement of Justice Kennedy’s retirement from the Supreme Court. Speculation now abounds: who will be nominated for this prestigious appointment? The potential names are circulating and commentary is mounting about each potential nominee. One who hasn’t been considered yet is our very own Hannah Anderson, who would like nothing more than to don a black robe and give opinions for a living.

In this ounce of Persuasion fast chat, Erin Straza and Hannah Anderson discuss dream jobs that, like being appointed to the Supreme Court, have zero requirements. For Hannah, it’s being a justice; for Erin, it’s being a food critic. These hopes and dreams speak of how we are wired and the joys we find in exercising our gifts to make the world a better place, whether that’s by interpreting the law or praising good food. Listen in, then continue the conversation on Twitter @PersuasionCAPC or in the CAPC members-only community on Facebook.
