What is the Working Hours podcast?

Working Hours is a show about a place called Leeds, a time called now and an activity called work. I want to interview 1000 Loiners (people from Leeds) over the 2020s and ask them the second question we all ask everyone - what do you do?

If you're a Loiner and would like to appear on the show then you can email with your contact details and a short bio.

Background music is Etude Op. 25 no. 2 in F minor - 'The Bees'

[00:00:19] Working Hours: Now, I've had a lot of jobs in a lot of sectors in a lot of places and this has made me curious about work as a subject to study. I'm no employment expert, I'm just a worker and I want to find out, over this decade and from my hometown, what workers think work actually is. Just, what do the people of Leeds think of work as being? What do we see work as being for?


[00:01:03] Working Hours: and that doesn't happen every century! Working Hours will provide snapshots of how we are dealing with all of our ongoing crises, as well as all the ones to come, as we go through them. I will be able to capture all of it throughout this pivotal decade. Just through the lens of this one topic: work!


[00:01:38] Working Hours: So, what are you doing? What are you waiting for? Listen to Working Hours now for free.

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?
