She cold called asset managers and launched the first internet coverage at a Pacific Northwest investment bank, managed investor relations for a publicly traded software company, and invested in early-stage technology companies for the state of Massachusetts.

CL-071 Jennifer Jordan Hunts for Hops at the Edge of the Driftless

Good Beer Hunting

Beer history has blossomed in recent years, as a new generation of researchers and writers have uncovered fascinating stories from the murky early days of brewing. Some of those discoveries have taken us to exotic locales, while others have illuminated overlooked stories right in our own backyards. And beer history is not just a field for enthusiastic amateurs. Academics and other professionals have been been digging through the archives to tell hitherto unknown tales from the world of beer and brewing. In this episode, I talk to Jennifer Jordan, professor of sociology at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, and the author of a recent piece on the historic hop industry in Wisconsin that ran in our “From Barons to Barrels” series. We discuss her research into hop farming in Wisconsin, as well as some the characters who helped create the industry, like Jesse Cottington, originally born in England, who went on to become the leading man of the profitable hop business in Wisconsin’s Sauk County in the 1860s. Professor Jordan’s research has also identified less prominent characters, like Ella Seymour, a young woman who recorded her observations about hop picking and other chores in a diary at the time. If that sounds ephemeral, it is: by the 1880s, the once-massive Wisconsin hop trade disappeared completely. But as we discover in this episode, the evidence for it — in terms of archival evidence, the changed landscape, and even the plants themselves — still exist today… if you know where to look.

THE BABYSITTER-Liza Rodman and Jennifer Jordan

True Murder: The Most Shocking Killers

Growing up on Cape Cod in the 1960s, Liza Rodman was a lonely little girl. During the summers, while her mother worked days in a local motel and danced most nights in the Provincetown bars, her babysitter—the kind, handsome handyman at the motel where her mother worked—took her and her sister on adventures in his truck. He bought them popsicles and together, they visited his “secret garden” in the Truro woods. To Liza, he was one of the few kind and understanding adults in her life. Everyone thought he was just a “great guy.”But there was one thing she didn’t know; their babysitter was a serial killer.Some of his victims were buried—in pieces—right there, in his garden in the woods. Though Tony Costa’s gruesome case made screaming headlines in 1969 and beyond, Liza never made the connection between her friendly babysitter and the infamous killer of numerous women, including four in Massachusetts, until decades later.Haunted by nightmares and horrified by what she learned, Liza became obsessed with the case. Now, she and cowriter Jennifer Jordan reveal the chilling and unforgettable true story of a charming but brutal psychopath through the eyes of a young girl who once called him her friend.

The Babysitter: My Summers with a Serial Killer: Book By Liza Rodman and Jennifer Jordan - Book Review Podcast

GoBookMart Book Reviews

The Babysitter: My Summers with a Serial Killer: Book By Liza Rodman and Jennifer Jordan "The Babysitter is a gripping read that’s impossible to put down: a string of gristly murders, a cast of charismatic, often abusive, and occasionally pathological characters, a comically incompetent police force, and an astute child’s perspective on the adults in her life. More profoundly, it raises questions about how children manage to adapt and survive in a world in which love, attention, and violence are inextricably intertwined." website: https://gobookmart.com--- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/gobookmart-review/messageSupport this podcast: https://anchor.fm/gobookmart-review/support

Episode #25 – Jennifer Jordan | The wisdom of dads

Diversity Dad podcast - Helping dads to “buck conventionally” and celebrate doing fatherhood differently.

Jennifer Jordan – Show Notes   Jennifer K. Jordan is a California-based author with a passion for celebrating the spiritual in our daily lives and educating others. She has worked as a writer and teacher and holds dual Master’s Degrees in Education and School Counselling. As a huge advocate of equal parenting for dads, Jennifer spent many years searching for and interviewing the fathers of Dadly Wisdom, her book which presents a positive image of the active dad. She now offers their powerful stories in this transformative book of love, joy and inspiration.   Jennifer says her motivation for writing her book was her own dad. When her mother passed away in 1998, she got to know her father in a whole new way.   “I came to really appreciate his wisdom as a father”   She was already a writer, and starting asking people if they knew wise dads not only in her locally, but also in other states, for her book about fathers. Jennifer ended up interviewing 100 fathers, and chose 52 to appear in the book.   Most of the dads she spoke with were older, and she got a sense that to acquire wisdom, life experience is needed. She says the most common characteristic was that they were extremely humble.  “They were just going about their business; feeling called to the responsibility of being a dad.”   Jennifer also says many of them were service-oriented, not just with their family, but with their community.  In addition to this trait, many were men of faith and had an optimistic spirit.   She believes that no one had ever asked them how it felt to be a dad.  “They really love their families and want to talk. I don’t feel like they’re given much invitation to do that in life.”   Jennifer noticed that her own dad became much more vulnerable after her mother passed away, and they shared on a much different level as a result.   “I think our relationship was enhanced. We got to know each other as people.”   The main thing she wants readers to take away from the book is that dads are not alone. She hopes fathers will learn from the stories in the book, as the men interviewed were from many different walks of life. She believes it will help them become even better dads and gain more wisdom about life in general. Finally, she feels that men will have more courage to speak out about their feelings.   “I’m hopeful (the book) will inspire (dads) to be more intentional about passing on their wisdom. That’s invaluable.”  Jennifer says that it’s not society’s norm for dads to share their feelings, and it takes a lot of strength for them to realize that sharing won’t take away from their manhood.   Her biggest challenge in writing the book was the sheer magnitude of the project. Project co-ordination was difficult, as the fathers were in other states and countries, and had to approve the final draft. It took one busy dad 8 months to approve his part of the book.   “I was committed to what I was doing, and willing to wait. It was all worth it.”  Jennifer also says that cold calls were often hard to make, as well as interviewing prominent men.   “They were still dads; they just love their kids and wanted to share. No matter how successful they were, being a dad was far more important.”   To support dads, mothers can “step out of the way.” Talking to them about how they feel about being a father and celebrating them for taking care of the family as well is important.   INTERVIEW LINKS:   http://www.jenniferkarinjordan.com/ @JKJWisdomSeries
