The way we work, how work is changing, how it used to be and what it might look like in the future. It’s about who we work with, and who we work for. It’s a discussion about the conditions in which we work and the demands of a job. It’s talking about how it can be the best thing in our lives and also the worst. Work can give us meaning and satisfaction, it can be the most challenging thing we’ve ever done and the most soul destroying days of our lives. And that can all be in the same week! A ...

By 5pm that d ...
 
We’re losing the illusion that we live in a classless country. But it remains a deeply uncomfortable subject for some and most of the talking about class is been done by people who benefit from the status quo: middle class, private school and tertiary educated. That is, THE AUSTRALIAN MEDIA. Up Ya Class is a counter-point. Hosted by veteran podcaster and comedian Dave O’Neil, slightly less veteran broadcaster and comedian Nelly Thomas, and actual working person with no podcast experience wha ...
 
If geography is destiny, there must be something special about 37 degrees latitude. At 37˚S, you’ll find Melbourne, Australia; at 37˚N, you’ll find Silicon Valley (and Area 51, too 🛸). In this podcast, U.S. Consul General Michael Kleine meets the Australian founders and entrepreneurs who cut a path between 37˚ N & S and found capital, partners, markets and success in the United States. Michael is a career Foreign Service Officer currently serving as U.S. Consul General in Melbourne. As a fai ...
 
Looking for what might be the new normal, one person at a time who knows their field. Each episode we ask experienced people how their specific field, life, industry or community will be different post pandemic. There’s no way any one person can conceptualise everything that’s going to change, so I’ll keep it specific, based on as much experience as I can muster from people that are happy to think about what comes after.

As we head into the third, exhausting year of the COVID19 pandemic, we are hearing our politicians talking a lot about protecting the economy. The one thing they don't talk about is what an economy actually is without the people who work in it, and what happens if they're too sick or unable to do their jobs. Dr Jim Stanford is an economist who is t…
 
They're both cold? Unlike the Australian summer that we're currently going through, that has also taken Glenn and Dave away from the studio.

As 2022 begins it feels like we're back at square one with the COVID19 pandemic as the Omicron variant causes havoc across huge parts of Australia.

When Professor Martin Green started his solar research in the 1970s, the idea of using solar panels to power our homes was out of this world.

I think Sam's dropped in a nod to Dave and Kitty's pronunciation of 'nachos', which you'll recognise if you listen to The Junkess. Drought and Yo Yos are similar in that they're both widely and not so widely known for each having a distinct lack of moisture. But somewhere, and somehow, in history they share a story that's rather unbelieveable. Reme…

Qanon is a discredited conspiracy theory cult that continues to hold a tight grip on the lives of millions of people - including many in Australia. It's fantastical, dystopian, paranoid fantasies about Hilary Clinton, pedophile rings, ritual sacrifice and all sorts of other mind bending nonsense would be funny - if it weren't so serious.
