Work with Marty Nemko, 11/9/17: What's It Really Like to be a Coroner?

On the Nov. 9, 2017 edition of Work with Marty Nemko, I talk with 3-times-elected Marin County coroner Ken Holmes. He is the subject of a new book, The Education of a Coroner.

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

After 28 years on Sundays, Work with Marty Nemko is now heard every Thursday from 7 to 8 PM here on KALW 91.7 FM in San Francisco.

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