I have to admit I’m a big Discovery Channel fan. I LOVE Shark week and the Planet Earth series. But my two favorite shows are Deadliest Catch and Dirty Jobs. They both have a couple things in common, hardworking individuals and host Mike Rowe. If you don’t know who Mike Rowe is, you may know his voice from the current Ford Commercials.
You also probably know that here at Rule29 we love the TED videos and often post our latest discovery. Well, when Mike Rowe spoke at Ted I was intrigued to hear what perspective he would bring to the TED audience. And as usual he did not disappoint. This is a funny, intelligent and challenging look at all kinds of work and how we as a society view it. Trust me – it is worth your time – and as an added bonus you get to learn a little about lamb castration…which is always a plus.
Are you a Mike Rowe fan? How about the Discovery channel? What do you think about Mike’s perspective on work?
