Jesse Thorn's tenacity may well be his defining characteristic. He graduated the same college the same year as me and kept right on doing what he had done all along. At first that meant sticking around the radio station and then taking the scary plunge into the world of podcasting when making a living in the field was a laughable dream at best (though things, arguably, haven't changed all that much on that front). It's a fork in the road we all face sooner or later — adjust the dream or stay and fight. To hear Jesse tell it, it was the simple fact of not having a choice at all that made that choice so simple. When no one wants you for anything else, what's the harm in continuing to do what you want to do?
