The ninth episode of Designit’s YELLO podcast series has been released.


This time, Dawn Gearhart, Director of Gig Economy Organising at National Domestic workers Alliance, shares her thoughts on how the Gig Economy has changed the way we work forever.


In this 42min conversation, expect to hear about:

  • What the gig economy is and the ideas behind the business models being used today.
  • The costs and consequences for workers using open platforms for jobs.
  • How design plays a significant role, mainly how design solutions have produced new problems.
  • And who the allies and antagonists are in this overall story.


The entire YELLO podcast library is available here (also on Spotify and other providers). You’re also invited to email the YELLO team to suggest ideas about the design topics and experts you’d like them to feature with next.
