Fifty States. Fifty Jobs. Fifty Weeks.


Daniel Seddiqui graduated from USC with a degree in economics and finance. When he went to look for a job, he received rejection letters by the hundreds. He sank to a professional rock-bottom, lost the support of his family, and was down to his last dollars. What he did will astound you. He decided to experience fifty different jobs in all fifty states during one fifty week interval. He shelled peanuts in Georgia, worked on a race car pit crew in Indiana, made cheese in Wisconsin, taught nutrition in Mississippi, and many more jobs. He learned through his rejections that his curiosity and his adaptability were assets. He learned about the generosity and kindness of American people everywhere. Now, he’s empowering others to share what he experienced. Listen to this heart-warming and life-affirming transformation of a disillusioned college graduate to become the heart of a vast network of human kindness.

The Tim Danahey Show started in July, 2010 at internet station Castle Rock Radio. It started as a one-day-per week endeavor and quickly grew to five days per week. The show discusses economics, government, social issues, history, and non-fiction books in a magazine format featuring in-depth conversations with guests. Politics and inflammatory conversations are discouraged as they are divisive and counter-productive. Instead, the show seeks under-reported topics and delves into facts, different perspectives, and ramifications of each perspective.
