For as long as we've had language, we've had songs for the work we do. Whether it's sea shanties, field songs, or industrial hymns, work songs helped our ancestors fight boredom, find meaning, build connections, and survive. But modern work has no song. We let the music die, and we did it when we needed it the most. And that's what this podcast is all about. This is a collection of stories about work that we cannot let die. Stories that could be our songs.
