The Best ‘Bad Advice’ With Quinn Cummings
We’d like to think we have some experience saving our listeners from bad advice. After all, we have a segment that’s literally called “Bad Advice.” But in a SFW twist, we’re gonna chat today with Quinn Cummings, whose job is to actually give what she calls “bad advice.”
As a kid, Cummings earned an Oscar nomination for her role in the movie “The Goodbye Girl.” She’s also an author, and now hosts a podcast in which she answers listeners who seek her advice on topics from work, to relationships, to wigs. It’s called “Quinn Cummings Gives Bad Advice,” but we think her advice is pretty good. In that spirit, we’re gonna set her loose on a few listener emails today!
Then in this week’s Work Pop segment, we’ll find out what the ABC sitcom “Better Off Ted” can teach us about how NOT to boost company morale. And Liz and Rico advise listener Jennie on how to escape some “golden handcuffs”: where you have it so good, it’s tough to leave your job, no matter how badly you want to hightail it outta there.
And last but not least, we’ve got a letter from listener Tamara whose team is making some big demands in their review meetings.
As always, if you've got a burning workplace question and need some advice, don't hesitate to send us an email (that email, unsurprisingly, is also Safe@Wondery.com). You can also find us on Twitter, we’re @SafeFor Work. Don't forget to follow our sage hosts on Twitter, too; they're @SSLiz and @RicoGagliano. And if you want to check out Liz’s other show, Satellite Sisters, you can find it on Apple Podcasts or Art19.
