How do we find fulfilment as we pay the bills? In my podcast Work Interrupted, I talked to people from a range of working backgrounds – business, journalism, the arts, healthcare, music, books, broadcasting, academia – to find out how their work was changing in the light of the pandemic. As we start to come out of it, I’ll focus on how we can all build a work life that brings some meaning, fun and even joy. In this preview of The Art of Work, I offer highlights from the two seasons of Work Interrupted. Tech entrepreneur Margaret Heffernan talks about how she livened up a boring project with live rabbits. Artistic Director of English National Ballet Tamara Rojo talks about dealing with pandemic misery by baking a seven-flavour, five-layer cake. Writer and coach Harriet Minter explains why work is like sex. Rapper Guvna B shares his moving definition of success. And doctor Rachel Clarke talks about the joy of death as a day job.
