Introducing ‘Hello Monday’: LinkedIn’s New Podcast About Our Rapidly Changing Work Lives

March 4, 2019

Monday’s are about to get a whole lot better. Today, the LinkedIn editorial team is sharing the first episode of our new, 13-week podcast, called Hello Monday.

Hello Monday is a show where Senior Editor at Large Jessi Hempel (that’s me) investigates how the nature of work is changing, and how that work is changing us. We’re asking our guests -- and ourselves -- the big questions: what does work mean to us? Should we love what we do? How do we make sure we still have jobs tomorrow, and that they’re “good” we feel good about?  

In our first episode, which you can download in the Apple Podcast store, I sat down with Seth Meyers, host of NBC’s “Late Night with Seth Meyers” and a Saturday Night Live alum. We spoke about how to hire and manage a team of creatives who all have their own side hustles, getting something wrong 100 times before you get it right, and the adrenaline rush of a live audience (apparently, it serves as the elixir for any illness).

Over the next 13 weeks, I’ll bring you intimate interviews with guests who have significant ideas to share about how to prepare for the future based on what they’ve figured out trying to navigate their own careers--people like Women’s World Cup champion Abby Wambach, Eat Pray Love author Elizabeth Gilbert, and Tim Brown, CEO of the design firm IDEO. Their stories will inspire at the same time as they leave us with practical advice.

Also, we plan to rely on you, the LinkedIn community, to move these ideas forward. Our managing news editor, Caroline Fairchild, will be joining me each week to share insights from conversations that are taking place on LinkedIn. She’ll be asking how you’re approaching the challenges our guests bring to light.

Today’s job market looks so different from the one my college prepared me for in the late 90s. That change hardly feels dramatic compared to what’s coming--artificial intelligence, self-driving cars, augmented reality. So what can we all be doing right now to make sure we’re ready for that change, and energized by it?
