Wetwork

Wetwork is a bi-weekly podcast about vocations. Most people think they know the ins and outs of even the most common jobs, perhaps via word-of-mouth, perhaps because there's a popular procedural television show highlighting them. More often than not, their assumptions are off-base. On Wetwork we expose the deep, sometimes dark secrets of vocations and get to the bottom of what it takes to succeed and the little-known tips, tricks and foibles of the trade. The term Wetwork originated as a euphemism for institutionally sanctioned assassinations, wet being considered an allusion to spilled blood. Wet work, in addition to wet job, wet affair, or wet operation, are all derivations of the euphemism often used internally by the Soviet Komitet gosudarstvennoy bezopasnosti for such activities: мокрые сделка or "wet dealings". We, at the podcast, don't believe work has to involve murder to get messy. Things are often not as they seem in even the most outwardly mundane occupations. Often you are forced to spend as much time with coworkers, supervisors and subordinates as you do with friends and loved ones. Love your job? Hate it? It doesn't matter. Occasionally it's all Wetwork.

Today's episode deals with a job that no one signs up for, but nearly every American is on the hook for. We're breaking convention in only our third episode by releasing an at least partly autobiographical story about yours truly. Yes, I, your humble host, was called for Jury Duty. You will hear some on the scene audio of my experience as a prospective juror, my thoughts at the time and just what it’s like to sit and wait and sit and wait and sit and wait, which is mostly what being a prospective juror consists of.

I'll also speak to Associate Attorney William Mims, Esq. of Koleilat & Miller, Attorneys at Law in Daytona Beach, FL. He will provide a bit of insight about the jury selection process from the defense’s side and from the prosecution's and why I may or may not be a juror of choice, depending on the which side of the aisle an attorney is sitting on.

Special thanks to William Mims, Esq. for joining us. He can be reached at the law offices of Koleilat & Miller at http://duidivorce.com/ or (386) 253-4720. They service Volusia and Flagler counties in Central Florida.
