    No Hello Club

    No Hello Club

    For many remote workers, seeing an instant message with nothing but “Hi” in it is a huge pet peeve. Which is why many are beginning to talk about something called the No Hello Club. Wayne and Marisa discuss what the No Hello Club is, why it’s important to be cognizant of the medium you’re communicating with, and why “treat others the way you want to be treated” is actually bad advice when it comes to communication.

    How To Avoid Relationship Strain When Working From Home

    For some of us, working from home means having your home to yourself. But for many, including hosts Wayne and Marisa, there are other people at home while you're working. In this episode, we talk about some of the struggles that can happen when you can't separate your home and work life, how to create boundaries between you and others in your home so you can get some work done, and ways to connect with others throughout the day so they don't feel neglected.

Informational and Timely for Remote Workers and Managers

This podcast is so timely as many companies are now remote-first. But the best part of this show is the conversations between the hosts and the guests. I like that it feels like a casual conversation with essential takeaways. My favorite episodes are when Marisa joins Wayne on the mic to chat about topics facing remote workers and work life.

I highly recommend Long-Distance Worklife to people that work hybrid and remote jobs or manage remote workers.
