On the latest episode of The Maple's North Untapped podcast, we spoke to labour researcher Adam D.K. King about the causes behind the so-called "quiet quitting" phenomenon, what the term actually means, the responses to it from the managerial class, and what this apparent trend could mean for advancing worker solidarity and labour rights in the context of a tight labour market.

If you're not already a regular North Untapped listener, you're missing out! Each week we have fascinating conversations with expert guests who help us unpack the top issues driving the news cycle.

Here are a couple of reviews from our listeners:

"Independent research, rational, thoughtful respectful discussion. What Canadians should know but mainstream media rarely tells us."

"I just found out about this podcast and listened to an episode to check it out - and then listened to three more. Such a relief to hear thorough discussion of issues as they affect human beings as opposed to the typical horse-race style of media commentary..."

Tune in now and catch up on dozens of episodes covering a wide range of topics, from the UCP leadership race to the fight to defend public healthcare in Ontario.

You can download the latest episode on Apple, Spotify or Google.

If you're already a listener, you can help us reach an even bigger audience by going to Apple podcasts and leaving us a five-star review. It only takes a couple of minutes, but is a big help.
