Western Studios, Leeds presents Working Hours: a podcast series surveying the residents of Leeds on their thoughts and feelings on the topic of work. If you are in Leeds or from Leeds then help me to reach my target of interviewing 1000 Loiners over the 2020s asking them the 2nd question that everybody asks everybody. What do you do?
The purpose of the project is to create a depository of knowledge about labour and employment across this pivotal decade in the human story. 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 Brexit, creeping technological unemployment, new and ongoing resource wars, the ongoing removal of the welfare state and accelerating ecological emergency.
