WORKING HOURS VOLUME 2:2021

Episode 13 now available – Help me in my mission

Episode 13 Working Hours

Anonymous female recorded 07/12/2020 My guest this episode currently works in Television in Manchester as a freelance TV researcher. This is my youngest guest so far and we discuss the somewhat ordinary and also somewhat glamourous world of TV production as well as being furloughed – my first furloughed worker on the podcast! We discuss a bunch of my guests’ previous roles too, including some from her time in London – where she got to dance at the Olympic Games opening ceremony – as well as moving back up north and doing postgraduate study.  Support this podcast

Help me in my mission to find 1000 Loiners over this decade and ask them the 2nd question everybody asks me – what do you do?

Episode 13 was published on Monday and is already the most popular episode (so far). In this episode I speak to a Loiner based in Manchester and working as a freelance TV researcher.

Support this show:

  • Help me improve my production quality
  • Advertise the project in Leeds to Loiners
  • Help me find new listeners and guests

For just a pound a month you’ll get exclusive bonus episodes and material as you help me to find new Loiners – more potential guests, listeners and subscribers. If you are from outside Leeds and you find the show interesting and would also like to hear more of it, then you too can support this show for £5 a month. (Consider it a tourist tax – it’s unfair but, you can also cheat it.)

The 2020s is a pivotal decade for our species and our home. So, I want to interview 1000 people from my home over this decade to record their thoughts and feelings around “WORK” and I want to show how their opinions change over this time; along with their ways of working and the sorts of work they are doing.

#tellmeaboutitleeds #leedsbemyguest

Leeds, please support this show and help me grow my reach to new listeners and guests and to improve my production quality – I need at least £1k for a new laptop and mixer in the immediate term for example.

How can you help?

For just a pound a month you’ll get exclusive bonus episodes and material as you help me to access new people through paying for advertising – more potential guests, listeners and subscribers. If you are from outside Leeds and you find the show interesting and would also like to support you can do so for five pounds a month. Consider it a tourist tax – it’s unfair but, you can always cheat it. 

What are you doing, when is it happening and why?

The 2020s is a pivotal decade for our species and our home. So, I want to interview 1000 Loiners over this decade to record their thoughts and feelings around “WORK” and I want to show how their opinions change over this time; along with their ways of working and the sorts of work they are doing. 

Working Hours wants to ask 1000 Loiners over the 2020s the second question that everybody asks everybody – What do you do? That is its mission and I can’t achieve that on my own. I need a hundred Loiners are year on average and I’m 90 behind on last year. Help me catch up.

Episode 12

 Anonymous male recorded 02/02/2021

 My guest this episode worked for 20 years for a firm of stock brokers. Through a personal project of trying to maximise what he could achieved within his lunch hour he has now found himself working within the area of work based well-being. We discuss a number of topics from my guest’s time working at a stockbrokers, looking at some of the myriad things he was able to achieve within those lunch hours and we discuss some of his thinking around the ways that we might raise awareness of well-being at work and also how we might, perhaps, embed some well-being practices in to our workplaces or into our ways of working.

I want to start publishing Volume 2 as soon as possible but I also want to make sure that I have at least 12 episodes set up before publishing the first episode of volume 2. I don’t want to release irregularly and sporadically as I want there to be consistency and regularity for the listeners. The original plan was to be recording 100 interviews a year so I’m 90 behind schedule after last year!!

I’m not too worried though. I had of course anticipated that I would have to build up to that level but, I had expected to be somewhat further ahead by now. Oh well! It is what it is. So this year it would be great to be able to go weekly with the show but we’ll have to see how it goes. If I don’t get any guests, listeners and/or Patreons (or even food, power or breathable air) then obviously things won’t get any easier for the show, but let’s see what does happen shall we?
