Life at work can be funny, challenging, ridiculous, and -- yes, even satisfying. Here at Safe For Work, we're all about helping you find balance and happiness in your career. After all, many of us spend more time with our co-workers and clients than with our friends and family. Hosts Liz Dolan and Rico Gagliano give advice on everything from how to avoid burnout on the job to how to fake an illness when you're calling in sick. We also talk to experts about those moments at the office that can challenge the best of us: negotiating raises, knowing when it’s time to move on...or dealing with that annoying office mate with no boundaries. From Wondery, the network behind Business Wars, Safe For Work is helpful career advice that's lively and fun, just like your work life should be. In every episode, Liz and Rico talks with callers, business leaders and noted know-it-alls who share their hard-earned wisdom from the trenches. Liz Dolan is the former head of marketing at Nike, The Oprah Winfrey Network and National Geographic and host of the podcast Satellite Sisters. Rico Gagliano is a contributor to The Wall Street Journal, former host of podcast Dinner Party Download, reporter on the public radio show Marketplace, and co-author of BRUNCH IS HELL.

That’s right, folks, it’s time to cleanse ourselves of our workplace sins before the new year begins, and boy, do y’all have some stories to tell. Topics include vomit (of course), ice-packs for vasectomy recovery, stealing office supplies from bosses who wronged us, and a photo of a coworker’s newborn daughter...that also features that male coworker completely nude on the edge of the photo. Then, writer/former child star/former talent agent Quinn Cummings shares a workplace story that’s still the subject of hushed Hollywood whispers to this day. And some of your favorite Wondery hosts talk about out-of-control attack dogs on movie sets, crawling through sewers, and getting paid to read obituaries at a country music radio station.As Liz and Rico say near the end of today’s episode, this doesn’t have to be a yearly thing! If you have an outrageous, unbelievable, truth-is-stranger-than-fiction story about something that happened to you at work, we want to hear about it. Leave us a voicemail at 424-224-5711, or send us an email at [email protected] We’re also working on an episode featuring your New Year’s Resolutions for your work-life, so send us an email to be featured on the show. And as always, if you've got a burning workplace question and need some advice, don't hesitate to send us an email (that email, unsurprisingly, is also [email protected]).
