The first episode of our podcast, Platform Predicament – Making Sense of a Datafied Future of Work, explores how it all began – what the advent of technology has meant for the labor market, how the emergence of platform-based work has been an important implication of it, and why it has gained such traction. Experts explain what platform work means for the employment question and also how it differs in the Global North compared to the Global South.
