Naturally, as the show goes on hiatus, a bunch of cool stuff happens to the Jon of All Trades Podcast. Three separate people reached out to me and introduced me to fascinating potential guests, a handful of people I’ve thought about pitching for a while come out of the woodwork to reconnect with me, and the Denver Post interviews me as part of their story this week about Denver podcasts.
John Wenzel, Denver Post entertainment reporter, called me earlier this week and asked me if he could talk to me about Jon of All Trades. He was writing about the 150th episode anniversary of the These Things Matter Podcast, and he expanded the piece to include other notable Denver podcasts. I was flattered he reached out at all, and then thrilled when he told me my podcast stood out from others in Denver because it was a thematic departure from the typical “comedians interviewing other comedians” format of many others.
I love the way the piece turned out, and I’ve got three grafs right in the middle. The real kick in the pants is at the bottom, where John provides a local podcast sampler. Here’s what he wrote about me:

On this rare business-oriented podcast, Jon Ekstrom indulges his professional curiosity with the oddly compelling minutia of wildly random jobs. jonofalltrades.us
Dammit, that’s a better description of my show than I’ve ever written. I hate it when people know my stuff better than I do.
No I don’t. That’s a gift. Thanks, John! And thanks for including me in your article.
