What comes next?Author Steven Johnson is an authority on the epidemics of the past, and how lessons that humanity learned decades ago might help us fight a pandemic in our present. Every week on Fighting Coronavirus, Steven will talk to experts in health and technology about ways innovations and interventions can help bring the current crisis to an end. Each episode will keep you up to date on the cutting edge scientific breakthroughs being used to tackle this global crisis.Listen to Fighting Coronavirus now: wondery.fm/safeforworkFC.
Kat Boogaard, staff writer at The Muse, joins us to talk about the surprisingly challenging aspects of working from home, plus she gives us her tips on how to tell if you’re the kind of person who could responsibly handle working remotely (if you have a predilection for watching Vine compilations on Youtube, working in an office might be better for you). Then, Liz and Rico help listeners Samantha, whose new job is being ruined by major changes at her company, and Amanda, who’s struggling to connect with her coworkers at her office in China. And we debate company cards, staying late, and calling your boss on vacation in today’s Mind the Gap.You can read more of Kat’s writing on freelancing, working remote, and all sorts of topics at her website: https://katboogaard.com/If you’d like to keep in touch, tag @SafeForWork on Twitter.

It’s that time, dear listeners. We’ve reached the end of Safe for Work. And for the record, we have loved every minute of making this podcast!In the interest of social distancing, Liz and Rico are coming to you for this last show from their remote corners of Los Angeles. But that doesn’t mean they won’t have their usual SFW flair.Speaking of flair, Rico finally got Liz to watch his (and America’s) favorite workplace movie....Yes, we’re talking about Office Space.We’ll hear Liz’s review and Rico’s impression of Milton for our final Work Pop installment.Then, Liz and Rico revisit some memorable callers, starting with Gabriel, who reached out to us about whether to put BDSM event planning and training gigs on his otherwise run-of-the-mill resume. Our second caller on the list is Dustin, a construction worker turned architect who felt out of place among his more privileged colleagues. And last but certainly not least, we are revisiting a call from the rather hilarious Sarah, who had issues with colleagues making pretty intrusive comments about her pregnancy.Finally, Liz and Rico do their own final performance evaluations, and sign off for the last time.But in a way, we’re not completely leaving you, dear listeners. Four encore SFW episodes geared toward remote work situations are coming your way starting next week. We hope that will help you stay sane as you rearrange your work life around the COVID-19 pandemic.If you’d like to keep in touch, tag @SafeForWork on Twitter.

Since you last heard from us (a mere week ago), office culture has, changed, shall we say. The SFW team is all doing well, under the circumstances. And if you’re in your respective corners like us, and would like some advice on how to make working from home… well, work… from home... may we suggest listening to our episodes, “The Secret to Managing Your Remote Team” and “How to Stay Sane When You’re Working From Home.” Today we’re gonna talk a little bit about how COVID-19 is affecting the state of work. But then, in a sharp left turn, we have something much more fun planned. We’ve invited back some of our favorite callers to get an update on how they’re doing!First up is listener Elyse, who called back in August of last year. Elyse “caught feelings” for a man in Denmark and wanted to know what her options were to work in that country. We check back in to see how that love affair is, or isn’t working out. Then, Liz and Rico catch up with listener Steven, who called back in December. Steven originally wanted advice on how to leave his day job for a career he’s really passionate about. We’ll see if he made the leap.Finally, we’ll hear again from listener Matthew, who called back in January. Matthew reached out originally to vent about a passive-aggressive department-wide newsletter that highlighted where he and his colleagues messed up on the job. We find out if he’s still dealing with manager feedback on-paper. As always, if you've got a burning workplace question and need some advice, don't hesitate to send us an email (that email, unsurprisingly, is also Safe@Wondery.com). You can also find us on Twitter, we’re @SafeFor Work. Don't forget to follow our sage hosts on Twitter, too; they're @SSLiz and @RicoGagliano. And if you want to check out Liz’s other show, Satellite Sisters, you can find it on Apple Podcasts or Art19. From our sponsors:ZipRecruiter - Try ZipRecruiter FOR FREE at ZipRecruiter.com/safe.FreshBooks - Get a free 30-day trial of FreshBooks right now at freshbooks.com/SAFE and enter SAFEFORWORK in the how did you hear about us section.Sakara - Get 20% off your first order when you go to Sakara.com/SAFE or enter code SAFE at checkout.
