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.
