If someone woke me up in the middle of the night, shaking me while asking “What’s your job?!”, I’de say “I’m a writer!” The irony that my most famous work is not in the written form, but in the spoken medium, is not lost on me.
I’ve had the immense privilege of having had hundreds of people listen to me, my brother Pedro and my good friend Daniel talk about our passion for video games. It was a wild ride that spawned several years until we went on a break earlier this year. After several months without new content, hundreds of people still download previous episodes of ene3cast.
Listener beware: the show is in Portuguese.
Now I’m starting a new, different journey. I believe that remote work is the answer to one of the great challenges of western civilization – the uneven distribution of work and value. But I also think that we’re selling it wrong. We’re reaching the people who want to work remotely, but we’re not communicating the benefits to the employers, to the decision-makers who create the jobs that people need. We’re not showing them how they can make it work, and prosper from it.
That’s why, at DistantJob, I’ve worked to create a new show, one where I interview people who have been building and managing remote teams for years.
It’s called StaffITright, and I hope you’ll give it a listen.
