In episode eight of Future Curious, we discuss the impact that automation is having on the way we work and what role we have to play.
“Perhaps what we want out of employment doesn’t actually change as quickly as some of the technology to enable it”Kate Bell, Trades Union Congress

Joining Nesta’s Nigel Campbell to discuss this are:
