This episode is an interview with Michael Fogler about his
The Adult Liberation Handbook". Michael talks about his life
experience, having reached the age of 58 without ever having had a
single, full-time job. He talks about how his personal experience
in "failures" a traditional career-job route led him to discover
unjobbing as an alternative approach. He talks about how he came up
with the name "unjobbing" and the influences on his ideas, such as
Grace Llwellyn's book "A
Teenage Liberation Handbook".
Michael provides some tips on achieving personal liberation, including the issue of minimising expenses, saving and ensuring that you "act your wage". He talks about the importance of having other people around you who share your values, especially as the unjobbing approach is not considered "normal" by mainstream culture.
