Play • 1 hr 40 min

We have a very different episode today. As you know, I am always making sure to expose myself to different perspectives. Today, I have a conversation and (mostly civil and friendly lol) debate with my friend Ketan Anjaria on cancel culture, politics, race, workplace diversity, and much more.
Ketan Anjaria is the Founder and CEO of HireClub, that he started as a Facebook group with his 25 friends as a way to hire great people. It has now grown to an engaging and supportive career community of more than 33,000 members and counting.
He has helped thousands of clients globally with delightful design, beautiful branding, and crisp code for mobile and web applications.
