We've considered summer food, summer songs, and this year, All Things Considered is pondering summer jobs.
We've been asking newsmakers and other guests to tell us about the summer job that had a personal impact on them. To kick off the series, Melissa Block shares stories from Vice President Joe Biden, Secretary of Veterans Affairs Eric Shinseki and former first lady Laura Bush.
The series will run throughout the summer, and we hope to hear from listeners as well. Tell us what jobs had the biggest influence on your life, be it the work you did or the people you met.
