Work and Life on Business Radio

Powered by the Wharton School


Work and Life is a radio show that explores everything related to work and the rest of life; your home and family, your community and society, and your private self (mind, body, and spirit). You’ll hear from the world’s leading experts – including researchers, CEOs, psychologists – and from everyday people in all kinds of jobs and families, with the aim of helping you become more informed and effective in creating harmony among the different parts of life.

Work and Life is a live interview and call-in show that airs Tuesdays at 7 PM, EST, hosted by Prof. Stew Friedman, Director of Wharton’s Work/Life Integration Project. We broadcast from the Wharton School on the University of Pennsylvania campus.

The mission of Business Radio Powered by The Wharton School is to educate listeners about business and management in order to maximize their personal career success and enhance the social and economic performance of the organizations in which they work.

Listen to Work and Life live on Sirius XM’s Business Radio Powered by the Wharton School (Channel 132) on Tuesdays at 7 PM Eastern.
