Vox Audio Launches New Series “The Future of Work” Across Podcasts Today, Explained, Recode Daily, The Weeds, and Vox Conversations

From labor shortages to remote work, these shows will explore the recent, dramatic changes in the American workplace — and whether these adjustments are permanent.

Today, Vox podcasts Today, Explained, Recode Daily, The Weeds, and Vox Conversations have teamed up to examine the recent, dramatic changes in the American workplace and whether the changes we’re seeing are permanent, in a new series—The Future of Work.

Vox’s flagship daily news podcast, Today, Explained, hosted by Sean Rameswaram, will kick off the eight-episode series today with special guest Rani Molla, senior data reporter at Recode, to discuss labor shortages, labor trends such as why certain industries are struggling to hire more than others, and how the pandemic has led to “The Great Resignation.” Additional episodes from Today, Explained include conversations about: the gig economy, with The Verge editor and reporter Josh Dzieza, the future of remote work, and a deep dive into rethinking our work-life balance. Recode Daily will publish two episodes about how technology is changing the future of work, and The Weeds will cover how remote work can reshape America’s cities. Vox Conversations will wrap up the series on November 29th with a discussion about Anne Helen Peterson and Charles Warzel’s new book “Out of Office.”

New episodes will drop every Friday, beginning today on Spotify, Apple, or wherever you get your podcasts. See the full slate of episodes below.
