Utopian Horizons

The 4 Day Working Week w/ Aidan Harper

The 4 Day Working Week w/ Aidan Harper

The prospect of a shorter working week is the subject of this episode, with Aidan Harper from the 4 day week campaign and the New Economics Foundation joining me to make the case for reducing working hours without a reduction a pay. We discuss crises of productivity, mental health, automation and climate, and how the 4 day week could help address these problems. Utopian Horizons is a podcast about utopia. Each episode covers a different utopia, dystopia, utopian thinker, or utopian movement, asking what they can tell us about ourselves, our society, and our future. Music: The Fiction of Utopian Studies/The Road To Oceania by The Fucked Up Beat.
