Denise Morris hosts this epsiode of the Old Mole about the meaning and de-meaning of routine work. In a re-broadcast from Against the Grain, Sasha Lilley interviews author Barbara Garson in a show that originally aired on April 27, 2022.

We spend much of our lives at work and, especially in this country, our identities are often closely tied to our jobs. And yet work, along with being exploitative and demeaning, is often meaningless as well. Journalist and playwright Barbara Garson set out fifty years ago to understand how Americans viewed and tried to shape their work, and the result was a classic book, subsequently revised, called All the Livelong Day. She discusses work then and now, during the so-called Great Resignation.

Against the Grain is a weekly radio show hosted by Sasha Lilley and C.S Soong on KPFA Pacifica Radio in Berkley, California. It’s a program of ideas, in-depth analysis, and commentary on political, economic, social, and cultural issues important to radical thinking and activism.
