Description

Not every meeting in the remote-work era needs to be a video call. In fact, there's evidence that plain-old voice calls can be just as productive, if not more so-and better for everyone's mental health, to boot. Senior Personal Tech Columnist Joanna Stern joins host Amanda Lewellyn to make the case for more audio-only meetings and share tips for knowing which kind to use in any given situation. Christopher Zinsli is our supervising producer. Kateri Jochum is the executive producer of WSJ audio.
