Larry G. Maguire
The Sunday Letters Podcast is the weekly audio newsletter from organisational psychologist Larry Maguire on the meaning & purpose of daily work and our oftentimes paradoxical relationship with it. We explore how human beings may break free from tiresome means-to-an-end labour and finally take command of their own working lives. Topics include solo working, careers, entrepreneurship, economics, society and culture. Content follows the written newsletter, which goes out to subscribers every Sunday.

God knows I’ve tried so many. Maybe this one will work”. Or maybe not. The email was from a website whose material I once found interesting, or perhaps valuable. These days their stuff usually ends up in the spam folder. And because I’m a little wiser now than I was when I signed up originally, their emails generally stay there. To be honest, I don’t check my spam folders often, and so they are deleted without me even being aware. But this one made it through, into my inbox and under my nose. So I opened it.
