Quit Your Job

An anti-hustle podcast for the burnout generation, we talk about work and why it sucks.

Why listen?

“It's a refreshing look at the current digital landscape, particularly in Glasgow. Sarah-Louise, Steven and Stephen discuss the state of the current working world and the “hustle”, with topics so far including burnout, agency life and shitty influencers being shitty. It’s basically all of my favourite topics to rant about in one podcast.”
