1:45 - We have a new Peloton user! KD is now on Peloton and JLee picked his username. 

6:45 - Tim asked KD to make a meme with the “change my mind” format. He added the text “Michael Bolton should be at SHRM every year”. 

8:40 - JLee proudly notes that while Kim Kardashian has been staying in NYC, she’s been choosing to stay at a certain Marriott hotel (location undisclosed).

10:00 - This is now a Blink-182 podcast!

11:30 - JLee is stressed because of the impending return to office. She’s worried she can’t openly multitask during meetings. She asks her co-hosts for some advice. 

13:40 - Tim reminds us that people often had laptops open during in-person meetings and many of them were not just taking notes. 

18:30 - Recently, Adam Grant wrote an essay in the Wall Street Journal titled “ The Real Meaning of Freedom at Work”. He discusses the “great resignation” and notes that this is part of a longer shift in working trends that has been happening for a long time. 

22:00 - Tim notes that Adam Grant’s perspective on work is probably very different than most due to his job as a college professor at an elite university. 

25:15 - JLee discusses how the notion of “positive liberty” entails some privilege and that those within the service industry are most likely not able to exercise this liberty. 

28:45 - Everyone brings up individually how a lot of the population doesn’t want to have their own freedom in the workplace and just wants to be told what to do and how to do it.
