This is the uncut, NSFW original episode 3 for the radio series 'Midnight Voicejail' produced by Phineas Narco & The National Cynical Network and is titled 'Work Hell'.

The series is a psychedelic documentary chronicling the audio goings-on of a real-life pre-internet voicemail box community which sprung up in Silicon Valley back in the mid-1980's.

This episode of the series explores attitudes toward jobs and work in the Voicejail.

Includes the long-playing (untracked) radio safe version of the original episode, edited for radio by Susie the Floozie of the Church of the Subgenius (plays last).

Hidden here, but included in the entire package:

- The Midnight Voicejail FAQ is also included in .txt file format.
