This episode is brought to you by the letter B or, rather, the B-word.
Keith Walters joins us again for a full on "bitch session" on the word "bitch."
What are the implications of calling someone or being called a bitch? Is it ever appropriate to call someone that in the workplace? How should you react when that kind of language is causally thrown around? And is there a way to reverse engineer words meant to demean and wield them to our advantage?
Listen for a real, raw and honest discussion of what workplaces are REALLY like, how to survive them and how to make them better. You've been warned!
