Join Rovik and Audrey Lim, local freelancer and multi-hyphenate, as they explore the fuzzy space of freelance work, gig economics and self-employment in Singapore. This was a tough one, but we made some progress in exploring who makes up the sector (surprise: they include all those private tuition teachers) and what are some of the areas that need to be worked on to truly accommodate this shift in the economy. Audrey was such a dear to have on and she did not hold back on her insider view of the sector. This is an episode you wouldn't want to miss! Also, in my effort to cross-promote other Singaporean Podcasters, check out Screwed Up Moments by Danny Koordi! --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/sg-explained/support
