Episode 24: Our Lady of Hope Cemetery Family Service Advisor
Warning: This episode talks about death. A Quick Note: This episode took me a long time to edit. During the recording of this episode, something tragic happened in my life that was very close to what Chris and I discussed. This episode was originally supposed to air in May but I could not bring myself to be able to finish the project. That being said, this might be one of my favorite interviews I have ever done. Death is something that a lot of us like to avoid because we hate the idea of dealing with it. This episode sheds some light on the subject and answers some questions that we will ultimately have when we deal with the loss of a loved one. Thank you for listening to this episode. – John We are back talking with Chris Gawel, a Family Service Advisor for Our Lady of Hope Cemetery in Brownstown, Michigan. Chris has quite an interesting background and tells us how he landed his role at the Cemetery. Further, we discuss what it means to be an Advisor and look at some of the expectations about the job. You can find out more information about the Cemetery here.

What Do You Do and How Do You Do It Announcement
Hi Everyone, First, I have to say thank you to those that have been downloading and subscribing. It’s been great seeing the number of listens increase as this show starts to take off. Unfortunately, something has come up in my personal life right now that I need to concentrate on. So the trades and labor industry series has to be put on hold. I wish I could give an estimate of how long this will be placed on hold but I can’t at this moment. In the meantime, I will be adding episodes weekly – some that I have been waiting to upload after this latest series was over and others from Podbros Promotions where I originally got the idea for this podcast. I hope you will check back in from time to time and I’m hoping to get back at editing, interviewing, and recording some of these great episodes. I apologize for any inconvenience that this may cause. Thank you, John

Welcome back!

Matthew has been with the Marines for close to eight years now and has had quite the journey since first joining. The two chat about what it’s like to enlist, why for some people it may be a better option than going straight to college, and discuss some of the lessons Matthew learned throughout his career. What Do You Do and How Do You Do It looks at varying careers throughout the world in hopes to better understand the many different job opportunities available. This show hopes to help those that have always had the questions but could never find the answers to some of the career pathways that have been presented in the news, portrayed in the media, or talked about through the grapevine. The Podbros Network is always looking for the opportunity to interview people about their careers. If you have an interest or suggestion, please feel free to email us at email@example.com or contact us through our homepage with “What Do You Do” in the subject line.
