Business & Economics Podcasts >

Work has become such a huge part of our lives - how much of it we're doing, how many hours we're devoting to it, and what its monetary value is. But why? We may not be simply defined by our job titles, but our current relationship to "the hustle" has begun to define whole generations. It's time to talk about what we all do for a living. Join me as I sit down with guests each week to trace their careers and their relationship to work.

Did you miss me? Well, I missed me. I missed being more than just a person who goes to work and comes home to binge watch things on streaming services. I missed having a creative outlet and something I was passionate about in my life. I missed being more than my job, so I sat down with some friends to talk about the thing everyone needs but loves to hate on - their work.
