Life at work can be funny, challenging, ridiculous, and -- yes, even satisfying. Here at Safe For Work, we're all about helping you find balance and happiness in your career. After all, many of us spend more time with our co-workers and clients than with our friends and family. Hosts Liz Dolan and Rico Gagliano give advice on everything from how to avoid burnout on the job to how to fake an illness when you're calling in sick. We also talk to experts about those moments at the office that can challenge the best of us: negotiating raises, knowing when it’s time to move on...or dealing with that annoying office mate with no boundaries. From Wondery, the network behind Business Wars, Safe For Work is helpful career advice that's lively and fun, just like your work life should be. In every episode, Liz and Rico talks with callers, business leaders and noted know-it-alls who share their hard-earned wisdom from the trenches. Liz Dolan is the former head of marketing at Nike, The Oprah Winfrey Network and National Geographic and host of the podcast Satellite Sisters. Rico Gagliano is a contributor to The Wall Street Journal, former host of podcast Dinner Party Download, reporter on the public radio show Marketplace, and co-author of BRUNCH IS HELL.

One of my top 5 Podcasts

I was skeptical. I didn't think I'd want to listen to a work related podcast on my time, but this is super high quality. Entertaining, informative. It is just the right length. Not too long. Every week they pick a super relavant topic. If you are checking it out for the first time, go to the recent episode about getting past failure. Super intersting. Rico and Liz also do funny bits that are both amusing but also valuable. They take calls from people who have relatable questions. It is the perfect blend. And both Liz and Rico have a lot of different impressive professional experiences to bring to the table so it isn't just anyone offering this advice...

Fun way to get insight into work place

I have no desire to study business management or get an MBA, and I am a doctor primarily, an administrator by accident. Still, I have a lot to learn about office dynamics! So this podcast has been scratching a itch-- I always look forward to the new eposide every week. The hosts are so funny so I can listen to this light hearted podcast after work and it prevents me from getting burnt out!

I never leave reviews but this podcast is great. Relevant content, funny hosts. I’ve gone back and listened to almost all of them.
