Work with Marty Nemko, 10/23/16: From Homeless to Six-Figure Task Rabbit

As a teen, Brandon Halliwell got himself too involved in raves and the drug scene. He ended up homeless and one day when really high on mushrooms pictured himself blue, dead. That scared him and he decided to…join the Marines. After he got out….well, he tells the tale on the Oct 23, 2016 edition of Work with Marty Nemko.

In the show's 2nd segment, you can call in for a Workover. Whatever career conundrum is ailing you or someone you care about, I can usually help.

Work with Marty Nemko is heard every Sunday from 11 AM to noon on KALW 91.7 FM in San Francisco and worldwide on KALW.org.

The programs are archived on NPR.org and iTunes, and in perpetuity on this website.
