Work in Progress Podcast

Think Dilbert meets Marc Maron (host of the popular WTF podcast).  Or, imagine Steven Colbert dropping into an executive meeting to poke holes in your open enrollment communications strategy. 

Work in Progress is a 30-minute podcast that takes on the day’s most pressing workplace issues with a healthy mix of insight, wit and irreverence. Hosts Tom Alexander, an award-winning radio broadcaster and producer, and Charles Epstein, Workspan’s NSFW humor columnist, engage guests from people in the field – practitioners, brokers, vendors - and people outside the field, including prominent business execs, and those in the world of sports, media and entertainment, to lend relatable perspectives on their day-to-day personal and business challenges.

Meet the Hosts

Tom Alexander is an award-winning broadcaster, producer and ( jazz) recording artist; Charles Epstein is a humorist (NSFW columnist) and business communications specialist. Alexander and Epstein have been a creative team for over a decade, producing and co-hosting two nationally syndicated radio shows (Off-the-Wire, the Sportsman’s Daily Weekend Show), and collaborating on an assortment of multi-media projects (including their latest, an authoritative guide to losers and losing called, appropriately, Loser, which is currently in development).

Tom Alexander grew up in his family’s cinema business. This early exposure to film and music served as the inspiration for a career that’s included screenwriting and composing music for radio, TV, film and his own bands. Tom is also a voiceover artist and Silver Microphone Award-winning broadcaster in the areas of sports, comedy, entertainment and jazz.

Charles Epstein is a humorist (NSFW columnist, formerly a Huffington Post satire columnist) and business communications specialist (founder and President of BackBone, Inc., a marketing and public relations firm specializing in technology and workforce management). He has also developed a number of employee engagement and communications platforms, including PEAQuest (“immersive” health and wellness assessments), Weekender (moves wellness to the weekends) and mBARC (a business mobility and Duty of Care platform).
