Episode 164 - Politics At Work

Season 5, Ep. 164

There was a whole thing this week about Basecamp’s “No politics talk at work” and we felt we had something to add to the conversation. Because if politics is just “stuff that makes you uncomfortable to talk about and means you might have to change something to feel better” then that’s not okay.

Episode 171 - Anxiety

Season 5, Ep. 171
We had to look it up, but we wanted to talk about how anxiety works in all its forms - unfocused, focused, momentary or lifelong. We decided it’s useful when you can do something about it but less so when you can’t.
