Is the idea of a four-day working week too good to be true? Is it all just spin and wishful thinking? Atlassian have crunched the numbers by having a team run a nine-week experiment over the summer, and their results make for interesting reading. We'll be recapping what they uncovered, and compare it with our own experiences (past and hopeful future) to see whether it may lead to happier workers and a surprising uptick in productivity.

It's another surprisingly tightly paced episode, especially considering the number of random diversions this week, involving deep dives on topics as far-reaching as bidets, spiders, wasps, and 2024 US Presidential Election predictions. (Although nobody notices Neil's Paw Patrol mug.)
