In this episode we consider automation as the secret culprit of job loss in plain sight. Peter Frase, author of Four Futures, discerns choices we face as robots march into every facet of our lives. Kathi Weeks, Associate Professor at Duke University, and author of The Problem with Work, questions our relationship to work as a multi-faceted solution to financial despair. And we visit Juha Jarvinen in the forest of Northern Finland, where he takes part in a cutting edge income experiment that holds promise of freeing us to pursue our highest potential.
