Our owner and operator, Daniel Butcher, was asked to give an impromptu interview for National Domestic Radio this month, naturally he obliged. You can hear the whole show below, it starts with a full and frank discussion of care.com, followed by Daniel at 21 minutes 30 seconds.
NDR was created BY domestic workers FOR domestic workers in the spring of 2013. Our first broadcast went live on July 28th, 2013. Since then you can catch us once a month live and you can call in. If you miss the show, you can always catch up with our podcast. This internet radio show streams live at Zumix.org and also on iTunes.
Be part of a growing movement.!
We talk about domestic workers’ rights, work out dilemmas, hear from domestic workers like nannies, PCA’s, and housekeepers, talk with policy people, and we have a great time doing it.
Our rights, news, dilemmas, & fun. Workers and employers unite.

James is the guy we rely on each show to make it happen! He has worked as a DJ in college and kindly agreed to be NDR’s “sound guy” and operate the scary sound board the hosts so feared. James is a musician and a claims processor at a health insurance company. His interest in domestic work flourished after meeting Thaty in 2014 and has since being able to bring an “outsider’s perspective” to the topics discussed at NDR.
