    29: Hoedown Throwdown

    In this week’s episode: 2 Truths & a Lie • A Maple Leaf Foods Hoedown • Deskterior Design • A Word from the Carbuncle Party • and more…



    Do you hate yourself? Well then, subject yourself to Kevin Carmichael’s absolutely worthless article here. I dunno, maybe this is written for the hate-click economy and we shouldn’t give it the time of day…The ‘deskterior’ phenomenon is addressed by the BBC here. Perhaps elsewhere too? Oh, and feel free to order Sam one of these mega-sweet Bernie Sanders dolls. Or, if you are more into locking up the parents of truant school children, there’s a doll for you as well.Want to enjoy some of the hits from the Work It countdown? The Work It anthem first appeared (in full) in episode 3 on leadership. Get down to Funky Janet in episode 8 at our holiday party. This next song deserves its own indented bullet point! What can you say about Quincas Moreira and Bongo Madness?! Our theme/buffer music was one of the first things that got us excited to do Work It. We found it in the YouTube audio library and were immediately like, “That’s it! That’s the one!” Quincas was nice enough to answer our email giving his blessing for us to use it in the show when we were preparing our first episodes. Thank you, Quincas! You absolutely rule.

    28: In Charge of Milk

    In this week’s episode: Comedians in Class doing Comedy, from The Economist • Virtual Assistants • Marketing Leggett & Platt mattress springs • and more…



    As much as I don’t care to send them the traffic, here is The Economist’s 410-word absolute pot-boiler about some managers took an improv class. Perhaps you’ll find it more edifying to read The Nation’s ‘The Economist’ Has a Slavery Problem or The Atlantic’s The Economist Is Sorry About Its ‘Not All Slave Masters’ Book Review. (Though obviously the magazine that writes paycheques to Rahm Emanuel, David Frum and Jeffrey Goldberg should be razed as well.)Want to take your very own Canada Job Bank quiz? Have you also tricked yourself into thinking it’ll make great radio? Well friend, here ya go!Here’s everything you wanted to know about working at Leggett & Platt but were afraid to ask!
