Leeds is the largest city in the largest county on the UK mainland, it is a former imperial textile centre and is now a major UK financial centre. The Working Hours Podcast will document the city’s experiences through Brexit, creeping technological unemployment, new and ongoing resource wars, the ongoing removal of the welfare state and the accelerating ecological emergency.

Be My Guest on the Working Hours Podcast

You can be a guest on The Working Hours Podcast now! I want to record one thousand Loiners for this podcast so I am always on the lookout for new guests. All you’d have to do is talk to me for an hour or so about your work experiences and your thoughts and feelings about work and working.

Still not talking, huh?

Okay, so you don’t feel confident or comfortable being recorded, listening to your own voice or being heard by your boss or employer? I get that. But, if this is you and you’re still reading then perhaps you might be interested in taking part in the Working Hours survey? You need to be Leeds based or Leeds born to take part and the information will help to inform the show and the overall project. The survey can be found here.

“Work is about a search for daily meaning as well as daily bread, for recognition as well as cash, for astonishment rather than torpor; in short, for a sort of life rather than a Monday through Friday sort of dying.”
