EPoP 029: Around the World in 80 Jobs With Turner Barr

Posted By Trav


Ever wonder what it’d be like to dress up in a 30 pound half yeti/half Chewbacca-like suit and run around in a blizzard with the sole goal of scaring little children?

Or lean out of a tuk-tuk, GoPro in hand, trying not to get decapitated in Bangkok’s crazy streets while getting the perfect shot for a reality tv show?

Now, you don’t have to wonder, because Turner Barr, the man behind Around the World in 80 Jobs, has done it.

And his website is all about showing you what it’s like to have some of the world’s craziest jobs, and also helping you figure out how to find interesting jobs (or even just normal ones) all around the world.

Turner will go in to detail about how he is able to score these wild positions, discuss the key things that people can do to get jobs abroad, and talk about some of his favorite tricks for saving money while traveling.

And of course, he’ll also regale us with a story or two of some of his favorite experiences (more Gluhwein, anyone?).
