Podcast: Curious Minds: Innovation in Life and Work
Episode: Anne Helen Petersen on Workplace Burnout (September 2020, 43 min)
How did we get to a place where life’s become an endless treadmill of work? In her latest book, Can’t Even: How Millennials Became the Burnout Generation, Anne Helen Petersen tackles this question. She argues, “You’re taking things that are meant to be leisure, that are meant to be those joyful corners of your life that are not work, and you’re turning them into work.”

Podcast: Hidden Brain
Episode: Bullshit Jobs (September 2018, 45 min)
Have you ever had a job where you stopped and asked yourself: what am I doing here? If I quit tomorrow, would anyone even notice? In 2013, anthropologist David Graeber wrote an article (and then a book) in which he described these types of positions as “bullshit jobs.” He received a flood of responses from people for whom this label struck a chord — people who felt their work was, essentially, meaningless.
