On Caring podcasts are produced by Associate Professors Jeffrey Longhofer and Jerry Floersch. Podcast topics correspond to our nine modes of caring. 

Season One Episode One asks: What does work mean to us? How can we reverse the norm that assumes limited supplies of work and instead promote institutions where work is viewed and experienced as unlimited? How is the current distribution of work racist?
