Mike Rowe

Born March 18, 1962

Dirty Jobs is still my favorite Mike Rowe vehicle.

Noteworthy

  • Dirty Jobs – Rowe got down and dirty doing those jobs that you probably would not want to do and in some cases, jobs that you didn’t even know were being done, to begin with.
  • The Way I Heard It – Short form, quick podcast for those with a curious mind and short attention span. Once a week. Mike Rowe does his own version of Paul Harvey’s “The rest of the story.”
  • Mike Rowe Works Foundation –  A trade resource center was launched by Rowe to provide information, resources, and forums for people interested in learning about or pursuing a career in, the trades. Those physical trades that are a dying art in America.

I can say the willingness to get dirty has always defined us as a nation, and it’s a hallmark of hard work and a hallmark of fun, and dirt is not the enemy.

Grab the EVOO
