On episode 283 we ask: do you have a bullshit job? What about a shit job? We explore David Graeber’s book Bullshit Jobs, specifically the point that younger generations are sometimes told by the Left that they can't complain about "trivial" things like meaningless work because of privilege, many people have it worse.
Our earliest experiences with paid work.
