Episode Notes

For many white-collar workers, the full-time work-from-home era is coming to an end. Some are going back into offices five days a week. Many others will be expected to split the week between home and the office.

As the new rules are laid down, office workers are asking themselves: Do we want work to go back to the way it was? Or is it time, finally, to try something different?

Guest: Brigid Schulte, director of the Better Life Lab at New America
