034: Separate Yo'Self (And What's Left?)
00:53:53

The things and people we identify with — and distance ourselves from — define us. What will we shed, and who will we be when the shedding is done? Debriefs and exit interviews, rude philosophers, growing and geckos: it's A Workplace of the self.

032: Look At That Bod!
00:57:39

Everywhere is beautiful in October, even the Pacific Northwest. It's more like a punk revival. Why am I buying these creams that are supposed to make me look younger, when I can just shortcut the process and get a couple of botox treatments to get rid of the lines? With all this messaging about body positivity, it does not matter. Plastic surgery is on the rise. I wonder why I don't have an eating disorder. If your body is part of your brand, just know that it's not who you are and not where your value comes from.

029: Understanding Branding
01:09:34

What is branding, anyway, and what does it have to do with you? It's not (just) about logos and wardrobes. Diana + Paige define branding for both people and things, and it might not be what you think. Problem solving, La Croix, necklines — in this episode of A Workplace.

00:55:29

It's Season Two! For the next 14 episodes, we're exploring, da-da-na-na — the Personal Brand. Does being strategic make you a phony fake? Does having a persona make you inauthentic? What happens when your business brand takes over your life? And what the EFF are you supposed to do at work holiday parties?!

This season kicks off with a story about the series of events that brought Paige to want to make a podcast in the first place.

We're back! Let's get to work.
