17 The Gig Economy (with author Sarah Kessler)

Play
Read more

The smartphone has created thousands of new companies and jobs that could never have existed 10 years ago: Uber, Task Rabbit, Door Dash, Fivrr, and more. Tech has removed the latency that accrues around traditional "jobs" and connects workers to work instantaneously, and without friction. The Silicon Valley promise was an economy freed from the constraints of offices and set hours; a world where pursuing passions or raising a family could take center stage in everyone's life. But the reality is more complex. Reporter Sarah Kessler (Fast Company, Quartz, Mashable) studied this trend closely and found serious gaps in legal and social protections for the burgeoning class of tech-enabled "gig workers." In some cases, these platforms don't empower the working class, but merely exacerbate wealth and skill gaps. In the face of significant automation and eroding security in the traditional "job," what does work look like in 20, 50, or 100 years? And are we having the right policy conversations about the technological disruption that's changing our economy in a fraction of a generation? Our friend and colleague Sarah Kessler joins us to discuss the data and personal stories she reported on in her book Gigged: The End of the Job and the Future of Work.

Ep 222 - Game of Thrones w/ Laura Krafft & Sarah Kessler

Play
Read more

First off, you're welcome Game of Thrones fans. This is a super-sized Pop Rocket loaded with theories, speculation, and yes, even love. While Wynter and Karen were away, Margaret and Guy tapped two die-hard fans for a full-on discussion of the series and their thoughts now that the first two of the last six episodes have aired. Assembled in the studio this week:

Guy "I've read all the George R.R. Martin books in the series" Branum

Sarah "I'm in a viewing group with a gaggle of lesbians and their gaybies" Kessler

Laura "I prepared delicious direwolf-shaped crackers" Krafft

Margaret "I host GoT viewing parties at my house" Wappler

This episode will reveal which Game of Thrones character Guy has dressed up for--TWICE!--for Halloween. Sarah finds one GoT character extremely annoying, and it's not Bran. Laura pines for a Winterfell man she fears will die in the next episode, and Margaret is pretty sure she knows who will take the throne.

This was a raucous, expansive conversation that will both delight and frustrate Game of Thrones fans.

Pop Rocket Ep. 203 Bravo’s Dirty John & Our True Crime Obsession w/ Sarah Kessler

Play
Read more
Guests:     Karen Tongson    Wynter Mitchell-Rohrbaugh    Sarah Kessler

We're getting down into the down and dirty story Dirty John, the new Bravo show based on the LA Times and Wondery podcast of the same name. Joining us in the discussion this week is media scholar and TV critic Sarah Kessler who happens to also be married to our very own Karen Tongson. Dirty John is the true crime story about Debra Newell, a successful Orange County businesswoman who seemed to have everything going for her except when it came to love. In her middle age, she began online dating and met this guy who her two daughters found extremely shady. Obviously, throughout the course of the limited series starring Connie Britton and Eric Bana, she and we find out why.

We take a deep dive into what it is that titillates and draws us into the dark and disturbing world of true crime. The panel takes a look at podcasts like Teacher's PetSerial and Bear Brook, among others, as well as shows such as Making a Murderer, Lifetime’s A Woman Scorned and the sensational, made-for-tv accounts of the most notorious serial killers. What does true crime tell us about women and what does it tell women to watch out for? Find out!

The Humans Behind The Gig Economy (Sarah Kessler, Quartz)

Play
Read more

Amid all the buzzwords and reports on the future of work, I find Sarah Kessler's stories about the gig economy to be the most insightful and the most human. Her stories and her book, Gigged, give an accurate picture of some of the upsides of the gig economy, but also some of the downsides.  

She shares stories of people that are sleeping in their office making five cents per task on Amazon's Mechanical Turk to creative freelancers who can make six-figure salaries working from anywhere.  She also shares the story of companies that see limits to the gig economy, like Dan Teran's company Managed by Q who is following Zeynep Ton's Good Jobs Strategy and looking at people as valuable and investing in them as full-time employees and partners in the businesses success.

Our conversation dives deeper into some of the stories she shares as well as some of the current challenges with platforms, the PR machine (all the firms say people want flexibility, but fail to mention they are happy to give it up for more pay!). 

One of her subjects in the book puts it most powerfully, Kristy Milland, “I am a human, not an algorithm”
