90,000 Hours

90,000 Hours is a podcast exploring how people really feel about what they do. Loosely inspired by Studs Terkel's seminal 1974 book "Working," 90,000 Hours peers into a diverse cross section of working lives to reveal how most jobs differ from what you'd imagine; the complexities lurking in the day-to-day; and ultimately, the unexpected ways that work unites us in the human experience.

Beautifully paced and edited into a first person narrative style with musical textures, this "podcast about working" ends up being about more than just work, including common themes such as separation of self-worth from our occupations, labor politics, imposter syndrome, and so much more.
