Work with Marty Nemko, 9/20/18: Making a living as an activist

  Many listeners have called into Work with Marty Nemko asking for advice on how to make a living as an activist. Well, on the Sep. 20, 2018 edition of the show, I'll talk with someone who does it: Lauren Navarro of the Environmental Defense Fund.

In the program's second segment: the Top 10 best career ideas I’ve shared in my 29 years on KALW.

Of course, I encourage you to listen to the show, whether you donate to KALW during my hour or not, but if you do like Work with Marty Nemko (or even the once a month my wife Barbara Nemko comes on the show,) donating during that hour is especially appreciated, even though Barb and I don't get a penny-- We do the show as part of our pro-bono work. We care about your donations for two reasons: Each dollar is a vote for the show; it says you value us being on the air. The second reason, of course, is to support public radio, a beacon of intelligent, non-commercial thought specifically aimed at the Bay Area. Few causes are as valuable as edifying people's hearts and minds. That's how society takes steps forward.

Work with Marty Nemko is heard every Thursday from 7 to 8 PM on KALW 91.7 FM in San Francisco and worldwide on KALW.org.

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