From a new kind of working experience to a new kind of life experience.  We hear about the growing trend of co-working spaces as well as the growing trend among younger people opting for pets instead of kids.

Part One: Co-working Spaces

A look at the rise of co-working spaces in Charlotte.

For a long time, many people dreamed of breaking free of the “Cubicle farm” that was their office and work from home but now, a new trend is emerging that’s somewhere in between.  They’re called co-working spaces and in the first part of our show, we find out what makes these places attractive and why they’re popping up all over town.

Are pets replacing kids? We talk about DINKs (double income, no kids) with dogs.

Then, another trend:  Pets instead of kids.  We find out why some younger people are opting for pets instead of parenthood.
