Best and Worst Fictional Places to Work
The Cracked Podcast #59 January 5, 2015
If you had to guess what the average Death Star employee was like, and you could only watch the ‘Star Wars’ movies, you’d assume it was filled with only two types of people: stormtroopers, and old British men in small hats. Where are the engineers, the janitors, the scientists, the cooks, and the thousands of other people required to maintain a station the size of a moon? And if these people exist, they surely must be paid well considering the risk of going to a workplace so frequently destroyed by rebels.
Countless evil organizations from LexCorp to Cobra to the Foot Clan must secretly be great employers to attract a never-ending supply of employees ready to do their bidding.
On this week’s live podcast from the Comikaze Expo, the cast and writers of After Hours (Jack O’Brien, Michael Swaim, Soren Bowie, Dan O’Brien, Katie Willert, and Cody Johnston) brainstorm and take audience suggestions for an upcoming episode of the show. The subject: great and/or terrible fictional workplaces.
