Odd Jobs: Living in Two Worlds

Dick Gordon spoke with an author who supported her writing by cleaning houses. He asked listeners to contact the show if they also worked at mismatched jobs.

"Grace" contacted us. She was like every aspiring actress in LA - taking acting classes, going to auditions, and working part-time jobs to pay the bills. But either the pay wasn't enough, or the hours were wrong.
