My friends have/have had some pretty cool/interesting jobs. Among them are college professor, speechwriter for the Secretary General of the United Nations, musician, minister, lawyer defending detainees at Guantanomo Bay, NICU nurse, chaplain, diplomat in charge of Darfur policy, conservationist, Finnish soldier, ob/gyn, lawyer defending the government's torture policies, maritime security expert, peacekeeper, Peruvian technocrat, cancer biologist, librarian, war gamer, video game programmer, legal translator, rancher, CNN-er, one who makes a living giving inspirational speeches based on her reality show experience, several mommies and daddies, and many, many more.
But none of that is as wild as the fact that one just started doing a podcast for ESPN. The subject: cage fighting.
You can't make this stuff up. Who do you know who does something cool?
