Event description

Description

Join U.S. comedian and podcaster Hari Kondabolu in a seriously funny conversation about the future of work with the Atkinson Foundation’s Ausma Malik and the Canadian Roots Exchange’s Max FineDay.
They’ll be talking about how to get a future that’s fair and work that’s decent. The cast of The Jetsons, the first colour cartoon series aired in 1962 and set 100 years in the future, will make a cameo appearance.
Hari, Max and Ausma will riff about bosses and workers, tech for lifestyles and livelihoods, and how race, money and gender colours everything for millennials.

2062 is Just Work It’s third series and first live podcast event. Catch up with the first two – Avocado Toast: Smashing Millennial Myths in Pursuit of Decent Work and Lovers and Fighters: What Millennials Love Enough to Fight For – on your favourite podcast provider.
