By engaging in lively conversation with leading executives and other authorities on the economy, Wartzman will draw out insights into some of the most pressing issues of our time—all through the lens of what is arguably the most powerful institution in our country: business. The twice-monthly podcast is produced by Capital & Main and sponsored by Aspiration.

Episode One:

  • An interview with Unilever CEO Paul Polman
  • Megan Kamerick reports on how companies are using social purpose as a way to attract millennial talent
  • Dorian Warren explores why employers that stand to lose with Donald Trump’s immigration policy—especially in construction and agriculture—aren’t speaking out louder against the administration’s hard line

Episode Two:

  • An interview with IDEO CEO Tim Brown
  • Robin Urevich reports on one design-driven project for social change
  • Natalie Foster explains how, in an age when union membership is very low, workers are using digital technology to find their collective voice

Bonus Episode: “The New Blue-Collar Blues”

  • Interviews with former Treasury Secretary and Alcoa CEO Paul O’Neill and former Labor Secretary Robert Reich
  • Lily Bowles, sustainability officer at Aspiration, takes a look at which companies are leaders, and which are laggards, when it comes to worker safety.
