MYW Unscripted Episode 01 – Football, Labor, and Gladiators

In the first episode of our new series, Unscripted, we use a video by Jon Bois of SBNation to jump into a discussion about careers that are considered works of passion, the possibility of consumers co-opting the labor that goes into a product, and how careful psychologists need to be when nudging people at work to behave in certain ways.
