Episode 7

Jem Henderson recorded 26/03/2020

So this is the 1st Skype episode but it comes out here. This is another fantastic interview. Jem is the Entrepreneur Engagement Manager for Yorkshire at @TechNation. Jem is a fascinating woman with a very interesting work history. We discuss unemployment, poverty, mental health, diversity, Digital skills and opportunities and… err… wrestling.  I lose connection in the 1st half of the conversation so there is a brief gap in here but we soon pick it up again so stay with it.

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?
