Exponential Organizations 2.0, by Peter Diamandis & Salim Ismail, is a new book - and a new book format - that offers valuable insights into how companies can achieve exponential growth and impact by leveraging the latest technologies. You can now talk directly with the book that generated $1B for Procter & Gamble using OpenExO's chatbot, AI-X. You can register for free for the Exponential Organizations 2.0 Launch Event on June 8th, 2023 at 8 am PST, which will give you access to this new book as well as the ability to watch a 3-hour webinar discussing specifics of these topics with the book's authors.In today's episode, Peter and Salim discuss the billion-dollar businesses of the next decade, focusing on the 11 attributes of ExOs laid out in the book. Not all ExOs exhibit all 11 attributes, but they all incorporate many of them.The first 10 attributes of an Exponential Organization can be divided into “outward facing” and “internally facing” traits. The first five, encapsulated by the acronym SCALE, are outward-facing attributes, and the second five, encapsulated by the acronym IDEAS, are internally-facing attributes.SCALE attributes:Massive Transformative Purpose (MTP)Staff on DemandCommunity and CrowdAlgorithms and AILeveraged AssetsIDEAS attributes:InterfacesDashboardsExperimentationAutonomySocial TechnologiesFor example, a company like Uber uses a gig economy platform to hire external workers on a per-project basis (Staff on Demand) and leverages social media to engage with and learn from a community of like-minded individuals (Community and Crowd), exhibiting SCALE attributes. Meanwhile, a company that encourages experimentation in all departments of the organization and allows individual employees or teams to operate independently and effectively (Autonomy), exhibits an IDEAS attribute.In addition to these, the eleventh attribute is a culture of experimentation. This attribute refers to the importance of constantly testing new ideas and approaches in order to stay ahead of the competition and discover new opportunities for growth. For example, Google's “20% time” policy allows employees to spend 20% of their time working on their own projects, which led to the creation of innovative products like Gmail and Google Maps.This book is a must-read for anyone looking to future-proof their organization and this interview will convince you why.After you listen, remember to register for free for the Exponential Organizations 2.0 Launch Event being held June 8th, 2023 at 8 am PST!------------What to write and publish a book in 30 days?

"First, it's important to remember that merit beliefs aren't necessarily true, nor are crony beliefs necessarily false. What distinguishes the two concepts is how we're rewarded for them: via effective actions or via social impressions. The best we can say is that merit beliefs are more likely to be true." Welcome back to another episode of Made You Think! This week, we're talking about Kevin Simler's popular Essay: Crony Beliefs. Our beliefs are essentially divided into merit beliefs and crony beliefs. We talk about the many reasons we hold our beliefs, whether it's for accuracy, showing off, or blending in. We cover a wide range of topics including: Key distinctions between Meritocracy and Cronyism The different agendas that we accomplish through our belief system Autonomy and individual decision making in the US vs. other countries How crony beliefs show up in the medical field, diet culture, and more What does it take to overturn a belief? And much more. Please enjoy, and make sure to follow Nat, Neil, and Adil on Twitter and share your thoughts on the episode.

We open the show by talking about podcast stats and the main challenge podcasts face that makes it hard for the show to grow. (4:42) Differences between podcasts put out by independent creators vs. content distribution companies. (8:33) Today, we're discussing Crony Beliefs by Kevin Simler. He talks about using beliefs as tools or ‘employees'. You have beliefs that you believe in for true reasons, but there are also crony beliefs which you may hold for social or political benefit. (13:52) We have agendas that we accomplish through our beliefs as they fulfill different reward systems. With Cronyism, we're less concerned about the accuracy of our belief so long as we make the right impression on others. (20:37) Crony beliefs thrive in areas of ambiguity. However, it's important to note that merit beliefs aren't always true in the same way that crony beliefs aren't always false. The distinction comes from how we're rewarded for our belief and why you believe in it. (24:12) Conspicuousness and standing out so you can be visible to others. It can be hard to tell when someone is sharing something out of the human desire to share and add value, or whether it's for self-justification purposes. (28:24) There are collections of ideas or rules where as a whole, we feel that we all need to agree on it. We go into the example of traffic laws. Conflicts arise when some groups think an idea has to be mandated whereas some people feel that it's okay ‘as long as it's not hurting anyone'. (32:06) How something as simple as a traffic light can mean something different in different places in the world. Is it to be obeyed 100% or just for guidance in preventing accidents? (40:08) The US prides itself on democracy, but the individual decision making and autonomy is lower than it is in many other cultures. (47:03) Crony beliefs in the medical field. Many times, it feels riskier to change a belief than to keep going with the current one you have. (49:21) From the outside, it's difficult to discern what a crony belief is. When it comes time to challenge or change a crony belief, if often would take a large event. Small, gradual changes wouldn't push the dial enough. (54:26) The best way to see if you believe something: Are you willing to test it? (58:01) The word 'crony' has a negative connotation, but they're not always bad beliefs to have. We talk about why life wouldn't be better if we only had meritocratic beliefs. (1:05:24) Could there be a level between crony and merit beliefs? There are many beliefs that are aspirational and positive, but not necessarily true. (1:09:01) We discuss the level of overlap between Kevin Simler's essay on crony beliefs and his book, The Elephant in the Brain. The book is all about the hidden motives that we have, and how we have thoughts that we don't want to acknowledge, yet they drive our behavior. (1:16:45) Harry Potter, Fast and Furious, and Lord of the Rings. Why it's easier to gain traction from remakes and sequels than a whole new story altogether. (1:20:43) That wraps up this episode!

The Business of You with Rachel Gogos
Jen Kem is an ultra-quotable entrepreneur. She is full of incredible wisdom based on her rich experiences in business - learning how to live her values, maintain her confidence, and empower others. Jennifer "Jen" Kem is a San Francisco Bay area-based brand building and leadership expert who gets entrepreneurs seen, heard, and paid for being themselves. She's the creator of the Master Brand Method: a framework to develop powerful brands that win customers' hearts, which she uses in strategic consulting for emerging entrepreneurs, celebrity brands like the Oprah Winfrey Network and Steve Harvey, and other major corporations including Verizon, Blue Cross Blue Shield, and Bank of Hawaii. She is a successful owner of three multimillion-dollar businesses and the proud mother of three children. The seeds of entrepreneurship were planted early Jen Kem had no intention of building a business, much less multiple successful businesses. But a long and winding path led her here. At a young age, Jen was in search of one thing: Knowledge. Growing up in Hawaii, she went to her local library in search of information and a world outside her small island community. After devouring the entire children's section, she worked her way through the adult books - and wished for more. Sitting on her Grandmother's shaggy 1970's carpet, she was handed the business section of the newspaper and her eyes lit up. She began to realize that the world was impacted by business decisions. Even in school, when asked what she wanted to become, she answered precociously that she wanted to become the General Counsel of Coca-Cola International. The adults in her life were stunned. Jen never became a lawyer, but what she became is incredibly powerful - a high-level Business Strategist and creator of The Master Brand Method. Passed up for a promotion inspired her Jen was working in the corporate world before she became an entrepreneur. She was happy there - until a white male coworker got a promotion over her. Regardless of her respect for him, she realized that her qualifications would never be enough in her industry. It was time for her to pave her own path and create the kind of world she wanted to live in. She left behind her corner office and charted a new path - a path of trying new things, rediscovering herself again and again, and using her values as a path to the life she wanted. Doing what works, quitting what doesn't Jen has owned multiple businesses, and they didn't all work out. In fact, she uses her story as a teachable moment to us entrepreneurs - to show us that sometimes, a failure is actually an important lesson. Before there was Doordash, there was Webvan, and Jen Kem was on the launch team. It was a great idea back in the late 1990's! But the market wasn't ready - and the idea flopped. Jen watched the Founder of Webvan recover and go on to do great things. When Doordash became popular, she laughed at the timing: Sometimes an idea is great, but the market just isn't ready. Before she founded The Master Brand Institute, Jen launched an underwear store in Hawaii. It was a great idea, since there weren't any others like it at the time! Women on the Hawaiian islands were traveling back to the mainland and shopping at Victoria's Secret for their options in underwear, because they didn't have any local options. But when the recession hit, her store went under - and she subsequently lost her house, her marriage, and her confidence. Jen fell into a deep depression. It would have been easy for Jen to tell herself negative stories about her “failures.” She could have decided that she was bad at business, and that she shouldn't try again. Instead, her ten-year-old daughter gave her a big pep talk. Jen began seeing a therapist and gaining back her mental and emotional health. It inspired one of her best pieces of advice for us: Focus on what you're great at. When Jen asked herself the hard questions, she realized that she didn't actually love retail! Was it really a failure if she wasn't passionate about it long-term? Retail was limiting, and one of Jen's key principles is autonomy - and her business wasn't in alignment with that value. This realization made Jen realize that it was time to create a company that was, and she bounced back. Values are a verb Jen's core values are autonomy, justice, generosity, leadership of self, and legacy. Now, her business clearly reflects those values. While businesses frequently feature their values as words on a wall, Jen reminds us that values are how we live, not what we preach. Your values can help you make important business decisions. For example, Jen's biggest goal is to be autonomous; To be in charge of herself and in control of her life. Now, when presented with a choice, she filters it through her values before coming to a conclusion. Does this option give her more autonomy, or take it away? Does it require so much of her time that she loses too much freedom in order to participate? Does this serve the legacy she is trying to create? Jen's work to live her values inspires us to do the same. What are your personal values, and how do you actively use them in your business? Quotes “I am obsessed with learning. Reading is my favorite thing to do. Every morning my grandmother would drink her Lipton tea and I would sit on her shaggy 70's carpet. She would give me the business section of the newspaper, so I started reading about business. I started to understand that that was what made the world move.” “As a visionary, we do see the future. Sometimes the ideas aren't ready. Sometimes the market is not ready, but that doesn't mean the idea isn't good.” “The system wasn't set up to support people like me - women of color, women ingenral. The system was set up to support people who played golf with our boss.” “I made the big scary decision to leave my corporate job. I took 9 months to create an exit plan. I had to, because I had two young kids. I spent the entire 9 months putting away half my paycheck. I had no reason to leave, I was making $400,000 a year in a corner office with a disco ball in it. I had the trophies and triumphs.” “Entrepreneurs are the reason we solve problems in the world.” “I wanted to help others like me get rich, respected and recognized for the fact they could see the future.” “I'm committed, not attached. Not every business I build is my dream home. We get so attached to our dream home. But a real estate investor never gets attached! So I look at my business like a real estate investor. I put all the elements inside it to make it work, but if it's not working and I've tried everything, I can elegantly shut it down.” “Courage is a muscle. It's something you have to keep training. People ask me if I lose confidence. I am still scared to do things! But what I can trust is what I know. I would rather fail fast than fail slow. It doesn't mean I'm not scared.” “Values aren't what you wish for. They are who you are and how you're behaving right now.” “Legacy isn't about the future - legacy is what you're doing right now to create the world you want to live in. Every decision I make runs through that filter.” “Maybe is a place we use as an excuse. It slows us down. I only say a clean yes or a clean no. When I filter things through ym values, I don't have regrets. You start to feel like yourself.” Links mentioned in this episode: Visit Jen Kem's website at www.JenniferKem.com Connect with Jen Kem on LinkedIn at https://www.linkedin.com/in/jenniferkem Follow Jen on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/JenniferKemComm Follow Jen on Instagram at https://www.instagram.com/jennifer.kem/?hl=en Follow Jen on Twitter at https://twitter.com/_JenniferKem_

“We can't become what we need to be by remaining what we are.” - Oprah Winfrey Upgrading is quite a common occurrence on mobile phones, computers, and software, but are you aware of the need to upgrade yourself? When was the last time you upgraded yourself? Is the current version of you living your desired life? In the dictionary, “upgrade" means to raise it to a higher standard or to improve it by replacing or adding components. What elements of your life do you really need to enhance? Is your own operating system working in line with your hardware? How can you truly upgrade yourself? Tune in to know the answers to these questions. Learn how you can create a better version of yourself and live a great life. Act now. Grow. Make a difference and live a fulfilled life. Highlights: ⚡️ People feel empowered and in control when they have autonomy. ⚡️ Getting better at something does not necessarily lead to a destination. ⚡️ Comparing yourself to others is an external validation that does not lead to fulfillment. ⚡️ Real upgrade revolves around higher needs.

Manuele Piastra: Challenging the Team, The Scrum Master's Role as a Change Agent Read the full Show Notes and search through the world's largest audio library on Scrum directly on the Scrum Master Toolbox Podcast website: http://bit.ly/SMTP_ShowNotes. In this episode, Manuele discusses the role of the Scrum Master and the importance of being a leader rather than just a servant. He identifies several anti-patterns that can arise when a Scrum Master is seen as a personal assistant or secretary, such as being asked to write stories, move stories on the board, or run meetings for the team. Manuele emphasizes that the Scrum Master is a part of the team and their behavior can have a significant impact on the team's performance. He also discusses the importance of challenging the team and avoiding the temptation to please team members instead of helping them. Manuele recommends reflecting on whether your actions align with your role as a change agent and asks "What would be the reason for you not to do what you are asking me to do?" as a way to encourage the team to think critically about their approach. Finally, Manuele provides tips for how Scrum Masters and Agile Coaches can work together to drive improvement and disrupt the status quo. Featured Book of the Week: Drive: The Surprising Truth About What Motivates Us by Daniel Pink In this segment, Manuele recommends the book Drive: The Surprising Truth About What Motivates Us by Daniel Pink, which he found himself referring to in many situations. He mentions using the book's three key motivator factors when designing a workshop or considering what a team might be lacking. Manuele points out that OKRs follow two aspects of the Drive model, Purpose and Autonomy, and suggests that the Drive model is also useful for coaching Product Owners. Although Manuele read the book many years ago, he still finds it relevant and valuable. [IMAGE HERE] Do you wish you had decades of experience? Learn from the Best Scrum Masters In The World, Today!

This week's guest is author Jo Lloyd Johnson. Jo grew up in a “non-denominational charismatic commune”. She spent her adolescence in various churches, but they weren't as “Spirit-filled” as she was taught they could be.She married young and the first years of marriage were difficult. There was alcohol abuse, church shopping, and the difficulties that come with having young children.She and her husband needed the church to be a place of deep and meaningful relationships, but it wasn't.“When we started seeing church as a social club [with no depth], we were like, ‘No. This is not what we thought it was…'”By 2018, Jo realized the Church was steeped in Patriarchy. She had been fine with “a woman's place” until she wasn't.Now Jo has used writing as a way to process the trauma and emotions she's experienced and her book, Silenced in Eden, is helping others along their own journeys.LinksInstagramhttps://www.instagram.com/jolloydjohnson/Silenced In Edenhttps://amzn.to/3nBRBYyInteractFor quotes, recommendations, transcripts and more see the full episode show noteshttps://gracefulatheist.com/2023/05/07/joanna-johnson-silenced-in-eden/Join the Deconversion Anonymous Facebook grouphttps://www.facebook.com/groups/deconversionSupport the podcast on Patreonhttps://www.patreon.com/gracefulatheistSecular Gracehttps://gracefulatheist.com/2016/10/21/secular-grace/Deconversionhttps://gracefulatheist.com/2017/12/03/deconversion-how-to/Deconstructionhttps://gracefulatheist.com/2017/12/03/deconversion-how-to/#deconstruction/Attribution"Waves" track written and produced by Makaih Beatshttps://makaihbeats.net/

In this episode of Off Stage with Greg and RD, the hosts engage in a profound conversation on the themes of autonomy and loneliness, inspired by the work of Christopher Watkin's Biblical Critical Theory. They analyze how modern culture's emphasis on individual autonomy can leave people feeling disconnected and isolated. Through their exploration of Biblical texts, Greg and RD offer a deep and insightful perspective on how a sense of community and glorifying God can provide us with a path towards overcoming loneliness and finding genuine fulfillment. Join us for a compelling discussion that will encourage you to consider how our cultural values affect our mental and emotional well-being.Today we are having a conversation about a conversation we had about the book Biblical Critical Theory by Christopher Watkin.

Journalists around the world agree that autonomy is central to their work, but what exactly is it journalists should be autonomous from, and for what should they use this autonomy? Henrik Örnebring and Michael Karlsson discuss their book Journalistic Autonomy: The Genealogy of a Concept (University of Missouri Press, 2022), which traces the genealogy of the idea of journalistic autonomy from the press freedom debates of the 17th century up to the digital, networked world of the 21st century. In a conversation with Joanne Kuai, the authors talk about what is ‘autonomy' and what it means in the context of journalism, and the journey of exploring the concept, using a theoretical framework that draws upon Friedrich Nietzsche, feminist philosophy, theoretical biology, and other disciplines. They reflect on whether the concept could be applied not only in liberal democracies but also in totalitarian regimes, and also discuss their ideals of journalism as an institution and what conditions are needed to facilitate that. Henrik Örnebring is Professor of Media and Communication in the Department of Geography, Media, and Communication at Karlstad University, Sweden. Dr. Örnebring has published widely on journalism, media history, and new media in anthologies and scholarly journals and his most recent book is Newsworkers: Comparing Journalists in Six European Countries. He is the Editor-in-Chief of the Oxford Research Encyclopedia of Journalism Studies. Michael Karlsson is Professor of Media and Communication in the Department of Geography, Media and Communication at Karlstad University, Sweden. He has primarily published on issues pertaining to the digitalization of journalism. He is also the author of Transparency and Journalism: A Critical Appraisal of a Disruptive Norm. His is co-editor of Rethinking Research Methods in an Age of Digital Journalism. He is a Senior Editor of the Oxford Research Encyclopedia of Journalism Studies. Joanne Kuai is a PhD Candidate at Karlstad University, Sweden, with a research project on Artificial Intelligence in Chinese Newsrooms.

Witness to Yesterday (The Champlain Society Podcast on Canadian History)
In this podcast episode, Nicole O'Byrne talks to Joan Sangster about her book Demanding Equality: One Hundred Years of Canadian Feminism published by the University of British Columbia Press in 2021. In Demanding Equality, Joan Sangster weaves together various moments of women's activism over a 100 year period to explore what feminism is in Canada. Sangster delves into the riches of Canadian feminism, beginning with nineteenth-century tracts and continuing beyond the recent intersectional turn. Challenging the popular “wave” theory of feminist history, she argues for the movement's surprising continuity amid decades of social transformation. This comprehensive study revitalizes a wider public conversation about the diverse movement of Canadian feminism past, present, and future. Joan Sangster is Vanier Professor Emeritus at Trent University, and past president of the Canadian Historical Association. She has written countless articles about working women in the labour movement, the history of the left, feminist theory and historiography, the criminalization of women and girls, and Indigenous women and the law. She's the author of several influential books, including One Hundred Years of Struggle: The History of Women and the Vote in Canada, Transforming Labour: Women and Work in Postwar Canada and The Iconic North: Cultural Constructions of Aboriginal Life in Postwar Canada. A Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada, she's held a Killam Fellowship as well as visiting professorships at Duke, Princeton, and McGill Universities. This podcast was produced by Jessica Schmidt.

Everyone dreams of escaping the 9 to 5 office routine. It's natural to want more freedom, autonomy, and creativity in your life. Embrace unconventional opportunities, take calculated risks, and never be afraid to dream big. Jason Duncan believes one key to getting autonomy is by defeating the "Hero Syndrome," which can often get in the way of progress.Escaping the daily grind opens up new opportunities that allow you to define your own working structure and make the most of the limited time we have. Tune in to listen to Jason for a unique perspective and gain insight into how you can create an extraordinary quality of life.Episode Highlights01:09 - There's this thing I refer to as "Hero Syndrome," and the hero syndrome affects every entrepreneur. Nobody escapes it. And at the beginning, what the hero syndrome does, it teaches us that we are the hero and if it's going to survive, we must save it. So, the businesses on our shoulders, we fly from town to town, we save the crying babies, we save the damsels in distress, we put out the fires, we do everything. We're the hero, we wear the cape, we wear it proudly. And that is fine in the first stages of any startup, of any business. The problem is that's not sustainable, long term.Connect with ElzieLinkedInPowered By Podcast Town We Help B2B Brands grow their revenue through podcasting.

Geeks Geezers and Googlization Podcast
Looking for ways to get your employees to want to return to the office? On this episode of Geeks Geezers Googlization, the focus is on where and how people work, and the importance of flexibility in workspace design. Our guest, Bryan Berthold from Cushman and Wakefield, discusses an intriguing and fascinating metric for measuring employee experience: experience per square foot. He shares insights from the company's proprietary research that shows workers prioritize flexibility in areas such as time, days worked, and tasks performed, and how this affects productivity and engagement. They also cover the current state of the workplace ecosystem, with virtual work, flex space, and remote working from home. According to Berthold, the clock is ticking on the next domino falling regarding the future of work, and there is an immediate need for fresh thinking and adjustments to local tax policy, real estate strategy, and workspace design. "experience per square foot" that uses employee sentiment to measure the experience of people. Here are some questions Bryan answered about the future of commercial real estate and employee experience during the conversation: 1. What are some of the biggest challenges organizations face in the current work environment? Answer: The biggest challenge is making the experience of returning to the office not feel suboptimal. This requires better technology, improved desk reservations, and buildings that function more like community centers to help people feel comfortable and productive. 2. What are some of the key findings of the experience per square foot survey measuring people's experience of their work environment? Answer: The survey measures five components of the work environment - productivity, collaboration, well-being, community, and continuous learning. It helps companies identify the important factors that contribute to their employee's work experience and provides data on what drives those five experience metrics. 4. What percentage of people in the US want to work remotely, and why? Answer: 53% of people in the US still want to work remotely, with the main reason being to avoid the commute (70%). 5. What are the main reasons people want to come into the office? Answer: The main reasons are community and connection, such as socializing, collaborating, and learning from leaders or mentors. Serendipitous conversations and exposure to different groups are also mentioned as benefits of being in the office. 6. Why is flexibility important in the future of work, and how does it affect productivity and engagement? Answer: A survey by Quantum Workplace found that workers prioritize flexibility in areas such as time, days worked, and tasks performed, rather than finding the power to work remotely. Autonomy and flexibility are emphasized, with a significant 56% drop in experience for those who feel they lack those choices. 7. How has the pandemic affected productivity and work-life balance? Answer: Productivity has remained constant, but two-thirds of employees report working more hours, leading to a work-life balance problem. 8. What is the "experience per square foot" product, and how does it measure employee sentiment? Answer: "Experience per square foot" is a product developed by the guest that uses employee sentiment to measure the experience of people, not just the physical things they are given. 9. What is the future of physical workspaces, and how are companies preparing for it? Answer: By 2030, roughly one-third of buildings are prepared for the future of work, while one-third need upgrades, and a third are obsolete and need complete renovation.
"My kids never help", "It's like pulling teeth", "Our family life feels disconnected", "They don't care about me or what I do for them"; frustration over the lack of help in our homes from our children can send us into a spiral of hard days. The sentiment that "kids will be kids" and we need to cater to their whims can topple the structure of our families. In this episode, with the help of Hunter, Gather, Parent by Michaleen Doucleff, we are going to challenge the Western assumptions we all hold about parenting to bring a breath of fresh air and an ease to our parenting that just may revolutionize the way you think about your home environment!

HBO Max series “The Last of Us” follows a grizzled man in an apocalyptic world. After a fungus outbreak has infected the world, fundamental freedoms are taken away while an overreaching bureaucracy searches for a cure. While “The Last of Us” is fiction, its depiction of real-world scenarios may be a lesson and a warning. At the heart of “The Last of Us” is the loss of autonomy, created not by the outbreak but rather by the reaction to it. Measures aimed to contain illness, panic, and fear hinder one's ability to freely live, move, and have contact with one another. The plot draws out elements that the world faced during the COVID-19 pandemic, causing viewers to think about how we as a civilization should respond to these events and what the implications are for the survival of humanity. ⭕️ Watch in-depth videos based on Truth & Tradition at Epoch TV
Gillian Branstetter (of the ACLU's Women's Rights Project and LGBTQ & HIV Project) returns to Know Your Enemy for an episode on the strange case of Ron DeSantis: what is his ideology and vision for America? And why do his political aspirations involve inflicting wanton cruelty upon LGBTQ children and adults in his home state? For our sins, we read DeSantis's new book — a campaign book, though he has not yet formally announce his presidential run — The Courage to Be Free: Florida's Blueprint for America's Revival. (You heard it here: it sucks.) Along the way, Gillian provides an update on the conservative war on so-called "gender ideology" and "wokeness," how organizations like hers are fighting back, and why superficial expressions of sympathy for trans people by major corporations and banks — which so outrage the right — are themselves a trap and a means of evading real justice. We also discuss Sam's New York Times piece on DeSantis as an anti-woke technocrat, an embodiment of the twin cults of expertise and meritocracy, even as he disavows and demonizes the "ruling class" and it's irksome cultural mores. Finally, we identify the violent underpinnings of DeSantis's political impulses, discussing his alleged involvement in detainee abuse at Guantanamo Bay. As Gillian summarizes DeSantis's worldview, “It's just cold efficiency and shared enemies. That's what he's selling. It's like getting a moral lecture from a gun."
