Loyal listeners of The Uncertain Hour podcast may have had motivational work songs stuck in their heads (our apologies!).

As you know, this season we dug deep into the story of what the heck welfare is today. Episode one featured music produced by a county welfare department in Riverside, California. We also annotated the lyrics to the first track. The album, "Work Makes the Difference," was created to play in waiting rooms, over PA systems and as the hold music for incoming calls.

After that episode, we received many requests for the entire welfare-to-work, synth-pop CD. And now, finally, after many emails with the Riverside Department of Public Social Services, we are releasing what we hope will be your summer soundtrack. Enjoy.

Welcome back to "The Uncertain Hour," the Wealth & Poverty desk's new podcast hosted by Senior Correspondent Krissy Clark.
