When The Office Comes Home
Binnie Klein and Duo Dickinson talk about the agonies and ecstasies of the home office.
Part One: Ah, the agonies and ecstasies of the home office! It all started as “telecommuting,” then “flex-time,” and now the many jobs that enable people to accomplish their work from home. What are the pros and cons of staying in your pajamas and not seeing other humans? Do your pets get in the way? We had some technical glitches on today’s show, but that’s the radio office for you….Featuring Chelsa, NY journalist Dorri Olds, and some great listener calls.
Part Two: Have you endured a 76 square ft cubicle (the average) and known the “inexorable sadness of pencils” (Theodore Roethke)? Many of us are longing to work from home, and some have achieved it. Madison, CT graphic designer Bill Brown joins Binnie Klein and Duo Dickinson in the studio to continue our foray into the agonies and ecstasies of the home office. Writer and adjunct professor of women’s studies and gender Rhea Hirshman (by the wonder of telephone from her home office) shares her home office with some essential non-humans.
