Introducing Work/Place, a podcast on where and how we work — with host, Sydney Allen-Ash, Lane founders, Clinton Robinson and Kofi Gyekye, and special guests. In each episode, you'll be immersed in a possible future of work, followed by a discussion exploring alternative visions of how things might unfold.
Voice: Sorry to interrupt…
Syd: Welcome to Work/Place. We are going to be talking about all things, work-life balance…
Clint: …things that we've created for workers. They're all aimed at that thought worker class.
Radha: We’re not really talking about automation and how it's affected the non white-collar worker.
Syd: The relationship between time and work.
Shawn: I don’t know anyone who has the professional level of insight that an athlete has.
Kofi: It’d be nice add the emotional layer to your communication style.
Shawn: I've tried to lean away from big corporate having insights into my emotional state.
Syd: Workplaces in light of global climate crises.
Ed: Probably the largest existential risk beyond all out nuclear war. Can you keep people employed when you're trying not to use them? Youth will not want to work in a dirty industry.
Syd: What happens when digital and physical realities mix?
Rahaf: You could create optimal personalities to give people that type of compassion, that type of support that's actually going to help us fix problems.
Syd: Radha Mistry, Sean Stewart, Edward Burtynsky, Rahaf Harfoush. Brought to you by Lane.
