This podcast is really stupid!!! The topics sounded interesting so I tried to listen to episodes 1 and 3 to learn about Funeral Clowns and Sin Eaters, but I'm so disappointed and have to bail out. The accents are so obnoxious that it's painful to get through and the "jokes" are not at all funny! What an excruciating waste of time!

Not my cup of tea. Feels so forced and the jokes don't really land.


Where the oddest jobs from the past meet a comedian from the present… and it’s awkward! On this weekly show, Chris Parnell (SNL, Rick and Morty) welcomes guests who have held some of human history’s most unexpected and downright bizarre jobs: funeral clowns, garden hermits, VHS clerks, and everything in between. With the help of his tireless producer, Chris hears from the essential workers from decades and centuries past. Because before there were actual medical doctors, there were barber surgeons. And before there was Instacart, there were milkmen. Wondery’s This Job Is History is a funny, absurd, and informative look into how time can change the way we live and work.
