Show Notes

We focus on Episode Two of Severance and are joined once again by our friend and academic wellness expert Professor Narelle Lemon.

We delve into the topic of corporate gaslighting and how the work of MDR is the best description ever of analyzing student experience survey results.

Along the way we touch on the unique grief caused by corporate restructures and deconstruct the strategies used to give purpose to purposeless work.

In much the same way as Ricken outs Mark S for being severed, Inger outs Anitra’s secret past as CD cleaning kit seller of the month.

Our office door is always open so please leave your comments in the suggestion box (well, the review section of whatever platform you are on right now).

Send us an email at or record a speak pipe message at You might want to tell us about this episode, your theories about what is actually being done at Lumon or speculate on plot points for season two. We'll read them all out in the last show!
