Work is on Fire

David Williams recorded on 19/05/2022

It's episode 50! On this episode I chat to David Williams, the Yorkshire and Humberside Regional Secretary of the Fire Brigades Union. David didn’t send me a bio text to use for the show notes, so I’m going to let you find out about him as we go for this episode.

It's a good episode, another example of how these interview can get more relevant with time. Since this was recorded the fire service have already had their busiest day since the second world war and my bet is that that won't be the busiest they get this decade.

About the Podcast

Working Hours
The Story of Work in Leeds in the 2020s
What do you do?
Western Studios, Leeds presents Working Hours: a podcast series surveying the people of Leeds on their thoughts and feelings on the topic of work. I want to talk to my city about work. Why do we do it? Do we like it? What could we do differently? What will we? How does work change and how does it change us?
Leeds, the largest city in the largest county on the UK mainland, is a former imperial textile centre and is now a major UK financial centre. This series will document the city’s experiences through Lockdown, Brexit, creeping technological unemployment, new and continuing resource wars, the ongoing dismantling of the welfare state and our accelerating ecological emergency.
If you are in Leeds or from Leeds then help me to reach my target of interviewing 1000 Loiners over the 2020s. Let me ask you, what do you do?
