  1. i met him at a airport. I was like 11. I came back from Indiana. We were waiting for a cab when i saw him. I asked him what he was doing here and he said he was going to meet a guy to take down cactus. Yep i met him hours before they shot the episode in Arizona.

  2. Well…He doesn't seem thrilled to be answering those questions, but i gotta hand it to him, he can make something of it ("It could be your poo on that guy"). It would be cool if Dirty Jobs could do a humanitarian work special. Helping out somewhere that it's really needed in a less fortunate place would be a great idea.

  3. It's true that we are impacted by other countries, but the key to the show is that we can RELATE to the jobs. We can potentially see where OUR waste goes, where OUR old mattresses go, where the eggs that we eat come from, etc. What does the ship breaking in Bombay have to do with us? Keeping it in America = keeping us interested

  4. Great set of videos, but his reasoning on the 3rd world dirty jobs is a major cop out, especially given the ship breaking example. Just because the connection isn't as direct as shit on a shoulder, doesn't mean we aren't impacted by it. If anything we should be reminded more often of just how much we rely on jobs like that outside of the country.
