Work is Politics

Neil Walshaw recorded on 12/05/2022

Neil Walshaw is currently a Leeds City Councillor representing the Headingley and Hyde Park Ward. Neil chairs the Climate Emergency Advisory Committee and the Development Plan Panel. So his working life is filled with terrifying data and models about our present and future plus lots of time nerding out with planners of all kinds. Combining three serious roles with the ward councillor one having 24,000 employers makes for a busy life!

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?
