We commend to you this lovely and well-made thing. KALW's Casey Miner is interested in the sort of super-niche jobs that most of us forget, or don't imagine, exist. Each of the short (10- or 15-minute) episodes in each six-part season profile someone doing their weird job: the literal noise police, measuring noise; professional lice-combers, combing; an Irish matchmaker, consulting his black book. These characters are warmly sketched, and Miner is a relaxed and sure-footed host.
