Episode Transcript:

We here at NannyCast try to perpetually have evergreen episodes, but today we have some timely information we need to share with you. The Platform Workers’ Council is currently reaching out to all nannies, babysitters, maids, and home health care workers to figure out how platforms and apps can be more fair to those using them to provide services. If you are a listener to NannyCast and identify with any of those job titles, please take the survey by visiting NannyCast dot com slash App Survey which is all one word, or by visiting the episode show notes for this episode which should be available in your podcatching application. Once again, that’s NannyCast dot com slash App Survey.

If the survey has already concluded by the time you find your way to this episode, you should listen on! We have some evergreen content for you still. In November of 2019 we released our most popular short little bonus episode called “Why babysitting isn’t ready for the gig app economy,” filled with warnings about how apps are currently constructed and dangers we face as service workers. We are reproducing that episode here in its entirety because it has become timely to step out of the shadows of being a bonus episode and needs to become a full episode. Please listen on.
