Renegade Marketing: 12 Steps to Building Unbeatable B2B Brands by Drew Neisser About the Book: Marketing has become ridiculously complicated, but yours doesn't have to be. With decades of hands-on experience, expert strategist and writer Drew Neisser has witnessed the dramatic evolution of business-to-business marketing. Working alongside giant brands like IBM, as well as start-ups and midsize companies, and interviewing over four hundred top practitioners, Neisser uncovered the top four characteristics that all successful marketers have in common: they are Courageous, Artful, Thoughtful, and Scientific (CATS). These four characteristics form the basis for the framework in Renegade Marketing. Over the years, Neisser created a twelve-step formula to radically simplify B2B marketing and build an unbeatable brand. In his book, he shares the stories of marketing CATS as he gives you the tools to: Walk through a highly refined discovery process that culminates in finding your brand's purpose Define your company's purpose in eight words or fewer Build team support for new marketing initiatives while establishing your unique brand story, voice, and design Assemble effective marketing plans that engage employees, inspire customers, and attract new business Drive perpetual growth by creating a culture with metrics, marketing technology, and experimentation About the Author: Drew Neisser is the founder of Renegade, a strategic boutique for B2B innovators, and CMO Huddles, a membership organization exclusively for B2B CMOs. He's also the host of Renegade Thinkers Unite. Ranked among the top B2B influencers, Drew has been a featured marketing expert on ABC News, CNBC, CBS Radio, and Tony Robbins's podcast, among many others. Besides his long-running Ad Age magazine column, he's contributed articles to FastCompany, Forbes, MediaPost, and CMO.com. Drew's first book, The CMO's Periodic Table: A Renegade's Guide to Marketing, published in 2015, features interviews with sixty-four marketing leaders at top brands, including American Express, Dow, IBM, and SAP. Drew started his advertising career at Wells Rich Greene, and later moved to J. Walter Thompson, and Chiat/Day, and then founded the agency that became Renegade in 1993. And, interesting fact – he's obsessed with (and a bit of an expert) on American founding father Benjamin Franklin!

The department said that these are the first job losses since December 2020. The October unemployment rate was up from the September rate of 5.2%. The year-ago rate was 7.3%. The national rate for October was 4.6%. The overall number of nonfarm jobs in the state dropped to 479,200 in October, reflecting a loss of 2,100 jobs from the revised September job count. The government sector saw the most job losses. The state lost about 108,000 jobs in March and April of 2020 when many industries were shut down or severely restricted to help control the spread of the coronavirus, but the state's economy has recovered 80,000, or 74%, of the jobs lost during the shutdown. Three sectors — construction, manufacturing and wholesale trade — have recovered all of the jobs lost during the economic shutdown, while the transportation and utilities sector has regained nearly all of the jobs it lost.

Welcome back to the uncurated life podcast, where I take personality tests and tell you all about them for your amusement. That's not the only thing we do here, but that is a series that I started relatively recently. So this is the second episode. The first episode was the D I S C assessment. And I will link that in the show notes, if you would like to check it out and you haven't already, that was episode 1 33, but today we are going to be taking a look at the Darlene of Christian Instagram, the Enneagram test. Now here's the thing with personality tests. I'm generally skeptical about them, but enough people asked me to take them. That I decided to just do this for the amusement of the internet. So I promise I go into these tests with an open mind and I am not being snarky when I answered the questions and actually take the test. Even if I'm snarky. When I talk about the test, when I take it, I'm taking it seriously. You may not believe me, but I swear I am now before we get into the actual test, give me a moment to mention that my latest series series two of my fuckery flowers, which are my flagship art print. They're a beautiful flowers in botanicals. Mixed media paintings that I create prints out of, and they're realistic, but hidden within them as a naughty word. Fucking love them. I have a new series of 12 launching this coming Thursday, the 25th, the link is in the show notes and the shop is only going to be open until December 10th and then I'm going to shut it down for the holidays. So. Shipping does not bite us in the ass. So just be sure to check it out when you're able, there will be some bundles that will be limited edition showing up just for black Friday weekend, blah, blah, blah. Check it out. Let's get to the test. So what is the Enneagram? So from the website, Truity they say. The Enneagram is a system of personality typing that describes patterns in how people interpret the world and manage their emotions. The Enneagram describes nine personality types and maps. Each of these out on a nine pointed diagram, which helps to illustrate how. Relate to one another. The Enneagram is mostly used for personal self knowledge and personality development, offering a powerful tool for better understanding your core motivations and applying that knowledge to all areas of your life, including conflict resolution, team dynamics, leadership, and emotional intelligence, because it identifies opportunities for development for each individual type. It has become widely used in. Such as counseling psychotherapy, business development, parenting, and education and quote. So like the quote said there are nine types and I pulled these from the Enneagram institute.com note that they're highlights. They're not the full spectrum of each type. Just to give you an idea of each type. So type one is. A is principled purposeful, self controlled and a perfectionist type two is generous. Demonstrative people-pleasing and possessive type three is adaptable, excelling, driven, an image conscious type fours, expressive, dramatic self-absorbed and temperamental type five is perceptive innovative, secretive, and isolated. Type six is engaging responsible, anxious, and suspicious type seven is spontaneous, versatile acquisitive and scattered type eight is self-confident decisive, willful and confrontational type nine is receptive, reassuring, complacent, and resigned. So it's nine types. It's a whole bunch of information. If you want to read more, like I said, links will all be in the show notes. Now I said at the beginning, the Darlene of Christian Instagram now, well, the Enneagram is not rooted in Christianity in recent years. It has really taken root in a lot of the communities. The first time I attempted to take this test a couple of years ago, the free test I found was explicitly Christian. And I note right the fuck out of there because I'm not Christian. And. A ton of the books I've found on different Enneagram types are written from a Christian perspective, like devotionals for type threes or how to be a type three. And then they don't say that they're Christian, but then you look at them and they're pretty fucking Christian. It's not my jam dude. And so I'm not like in. The test I did find is science-based allegedly, what does it say? Science-based or scientifically validated force choice, personality test. Uh, it didn't seem to be Christian. When I looked at it, it costs $12. And according to the website takes about 40 minutes to complete. Now there are plenty of free tests out there. You just need to be careful if you're not somebody who wants to take one from a Christian perspective to just keep an eye out for that. And on top of that, a lot of them will give you information, but you gotta like give them your email to get the rest of it and blah, blah, blah. So just that, that's the point. The one I am taking is the. Test the Riso Hudson Enneagram type indicator routine version 2.5. And that is linked in the description. So. It says here that it has been independently scientifically validated rather than just indicating your basic type. It produces a full personality profile across all nine types, providing you a unique portrait relative indicating your relative strengths and weaknesses of the nine types within your overall personnel. All right. So that's the one I'm taking. I will pause you here and go take it. If you want to take one of the tests and do it with me, then post, we can post about it on Instagram stories, blah, blah, blah. But I'll be back. I'll be back. All right. So I am done with the test. It went pretty quickly for me. I wound up doing it about 20, 25 minutes, but I tend to read really quickly and I didn't hesitate. There were a couple where I think I read the question wrong. So I went back and was right about that and then answered it. So according to my results, my highest Enneagram type is two with seven being very close second. And then my lowest was type eight. So. I looked at this and two is the helper. Generally twos are caring, empathetic, warm, thoughtful, appreciative, generous, other oriented, tactile affectionate, well, intention and demonstrative. They get into conflict by being people pleasing, flattering, ingratiating, clingy, worried, possessive insincere, seductive self-important, and self deceptive. And at their best twos are encouraging, loving self nurturing. Constant joyous, humble, forgiving, gracious, and compassionate. So I see aspects of myself in this one, but I think that the second one, which is very close to the first. Is a little bit more me because I, one of the things I read about the Enneagram is that your original personality type is the way you like. It's something that's constant throughout your life. And I feel like a lot of the aspects of the two are things that I have developed through like working on myself, but seven, the enthusiastic, I read that one and I was like, Hmm. So sevens are excitable spontaneous, curious, optimistic, eager, outgoing, future oriented, adventurous variety, seeking quick and talkative. They get into conflicts by being scattered, distracted, restless, impatient thrill-seeking escapist, overextended, irresponsible, demanding, and excessive. And at their best, they are appreciative bountiful, thoughtful, accomplished, versatile, receptive, grateful content, quiet and passionate. Type seven exemplifies the desire for freedom and variety and for exploring the many rich experiences that life offers they're spontaneous and upbeat. They find life exhilarating that the kind of people who and see like this also in some ways like there's aspects of this that are very much me, but there are aspects that I'm not adventurous. And I don't feel my social calendar like. So there is that. Now one of the things I wanted to look at to see if maybe I could figure out which one of these I was, and I could see the, now I'm going to the third one, which was five, generally fives are focused, observant, curious, insightful expert studious. Complex perceptive, whimsical, profound unsentimental ex no, this isn't me as much either. I don't know you guys. I need to sit down and talk to Jesse about this and be like, which one it ma, but I feel like, Ooh, sorry about the odd by goodness, but I feel like seven. So I'm going to go to the personality dynamics and variations to see if I can kind of. Kinda hammer this out under stress. Seven goes to average one sevens value their spontaneity and tend to follow their impulses for better or for worse. As a result, they can become scattered in their attention and energy leaping from one idea to the next, from one activity to another. While this can be exciting. It often leaves seven's frustrated with themselves because they feel like they are not accomplishing as much as they would like to. At such times they begin to behave like average ones pulling in the reins on themselves and trying to get more organized and self controlled. But because they are trying to impose order and control on themselves, they begin to feel trapped and restricted. This just makes them more frustrated, impatient, and irritable. They may, for instance, become critical of their own creativity. Creative. Before they have had a chance to develop them. Similarly, they cannot avoid feeling disappointment with people and aspects of their environment. Nothing meets their expectations and they can become harsh and perfectionistic be critical with themselves. And with others, see that that is fucking like razor sharp. Security seven goes to an average five sevens often feel it is their duty to entertain others and keep their environment positive and exciting over time. This can be exhausting even for sevens, when they are tired of being on for everyone, they may choose to withdraw even from their intimates and seek seclusion. And noninterference, this can come as a shock to others. You've been out having fun with everyone else. Why are you so quiet and unavailable? They no longer want to put out energy for anyone else and can become almost obsessively focused and preoccupied. They can also be surprisingly withdrawn and isolated, like fives, their body language and aloof responses. Let others know they want space and privacy. They make no effort to entertain or energize others like fives. They retreat from contact and attempt to restore their energy. Again. This is very much me, the only real exception being this, being a shock to others. But I think it's because my family and my friends know me well enough to know that there are times where I am just like fucking no. Integration seven goes to healthy five, a sevens learned to relax and tolerate their uncomfortable feelings. More completely. They stop using their restless minds to distract themselves. Their minds become quiet, clear, and focused, allowing sevens to tap more deeply into their reserves of creativity and insight. They're able to prioritize not by imposing some arbitrary order on themselves, but by following their true interests and staying with them, thus, they become far more productive, satisfied. Satisfying as companions, their capacity to find connections and to synthesize information is not drawn off into tangents. They produce results and this gives them grounds for real confidence in themselves and in life. As they experienced the world more deeply, they find each moment fascinating, profound and regulatory. The idea of boredom becomes absurd as they savor the incredible mysteries of existence. See like, This I can totally get. And I, this is making me think I'm the seven, cause I'm going to look at the same things for two and I'm not going to read them completely like the resentment for two under stress. They, um, can't maintain their loving attitude and. They turn into like an egocentric controlling. I can be egocentric and dominating, but I don't turn into like an egocentric Dick. When I feel like my shit has been rejected. I tend to withdraw when my shit has been rejected. So I, this is I'm the opposite of this. I tend, I don't, they, what they're saying is that under stress twos tend to outburst aggressive, blah, blah, blah. And I tend to pull into myself with the security one. It says they may risk expressing their neediness and darker impulses. Again, that's not really me and the integration. Yeah. See, I think just looking at all of these things about the two, it also says. It's very possessive and like people pleasing. And that's not me. I'm not really sure how I got to that. But with seven, the relationship issues. So some relationship problems can include these becoming so involved with expressing their thoughts and ideas that they do not really listen to others. That would be me becoming impatient or critical of other slower pace. Just ask Jesse getting flighty or to seeking distractions. When important relationship challenges arise, fearing that others will not support them. If they're down or depressed, expecting the partner to provide gratification, entertainment, or support immediately on demand and being unwilling or very slow to make commitments. A lot of this very much resonates with me. And one of the things I will say that with some of those things, they have been problems for me in the past and having a really healthy relationship has helped mitigate some of those things. So I actually think that the seven might be the closest one to me, although the biggest part of seven, that is not me as I am not adventurous, like at all. So the other thing that usually happens with an Enneagram test is you might be able to know what your wing is. So it's the number that is the closest to your number on either side that you score the highest in. And for me, it would be six according to this. So let's take a look at that. Generally sixes are reliable, hardworking, organizing vigilant, dutiful, evaluating, persevering, cautious, anxious, believing, and doubting, conservative, and liberal six is get into conflicts by being pessimistic, defensive, evasive, negative worrying, doubtful negativistic, reactive, suspicious, and blaming, and at their best they're courageous cooperative disciplined, grounded, secure, faithful. Self-expressive funny and affectionate. And the relationship issues for a six are getting testing the other person to see if he or she is going to stay getting over committed, causing sixes, to feel pressured and taking advantage of clamming up and not expressing their feelings or venting. The stream of anxiety is alternating between feeling dependent and needy and feeling divided to find a rebellious like rain, hot or cold becoming suspicious. Doubting the Goodwill of others towards them and blaming people for their own anxieties. And there's a lot here. I can resonate as well. Although not as much as with a seven. Um, the other thing that I can see here is that here, for example, security, when six is feel secure, they begin to deal with stress by simply shutting down and becoming indifferent to their surroundings. So like there are aspects of this. So if I was going to take a, like, read this and interpret it, I would say that I'm a seven wings, six. So an enthusiast wing loyalist, um, I would imagine that it's a six for my wing, not an eight, because eight was the lowest on my score. What do I think about this? I mean, honestly, most of what I'm looking at here is stuff that, like I already knew about myself and the suggestions for like levels of development and everything like healthy levels. So like where is it at number seven? One of the things they say is at a healthy place at your best, I would assimilate experiences in depth, making them grateful and appreciative for what they have becoming odd by the simple wonders of life, joyful and ecstatic. Intimidations of spiritual reality of the boundless goodness of life. I don't think I'm there. I think actually level three. So the lowest healthy level before you hit. Um, average levels is become accomplished. Achievers, generalists who do many things well, practical, productive, usually prolific cross fertilizing areas of interests. I think that that's kind of where I'm at with this, but I'm not sure, you know, and I mean, this, I don't know how much this is all a thing, but I appreciate the look of this. It, the only thing in here that feels slightly. Christian. Like it doesn't feel Christian at all, except there is Nope. That's about it. I was going to say that like, one of their things is like, they talk about like, your passion is gluttony or plat. Passion is avarice, but they're not all the seven deadly sins, so, okay. They're just using that verbiage, but yeah. Um, so I'm going to come out of this St. I'm a seven wing six and Ooh. They also have examples of who, who are sevens and who are whatever. If I'm looking at who sevens are some sevens pulling out of here, we got Joe Biden, but we also got Sarah Pailin. We got Katy Perry and Brittany Spears and Goldie Hawn and cameras. There's a lot of actors on here. There's a lot of actors on here. Elton John is on here. Leonard Bernstein is on here. Who else? JFK is on your Mozart. Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin. I mean, he had gout to I Kandinsky and artist. I really admire is on here. Jim Carey, David do Cavani. There's a bunch of actors and so on. And so this makes sense, like a lot of like people in like the arts seem to be on here. So that's, that's cool. Anyway, I don't know you guys, I don't know if this is garbage or if this is realistic, but I will say that it's an interesting way of looking at things, looking at things like how you resolve conflict and how you go about your life in that way. So I do appreciate that. And I wonder if once I'm done with all of these personality tests, if I set them next to each other and see, do they kind of inter in line with each other or was I just in different moods those days? Cause sometimes I wonder when I'm taking these tests, um, is it just based on my mood that day? Like today, am I seven and tomorrow mine eight, like who fucking knows. Right. Anyway, if you take the Enneagram, let me know, let me know what you are. Tag me on Instagram at Lama letters. And don't forget to check out my shop.

Hoaxes and magic were widespread in 18th century Britain. From a woman who claimed to birth rabbits, to a man who said he'd climb into a bottle in front of a live audience, many of the claims sound laughably unbelievable to us today. But at the time, these sorts of hoaxes were widely influential, even drawing in celebrities of the day such as Benjamin Franklin and Jonathan Swift. This episode, Dan is joined by joined by historian and magician, Ian Keable, who details some of the most bamboozling hoaxes of the 18th century and why the public fell for them.

Maybe it's just a sense of weariness at the nonstop wokeness that typifies most higher education campuses but I seriously wonder why any ration person would aspire to going to college. James Bovard is a two time drop-out with a decisive answer to the question: Is college worthwhile? Perhaps it's time to call out higher education for its bad behavior. A lot of Americans are waking up to the reality that the more they have in common with George Washington and Benjamin Franklin, the more they are fair game to be demonized. Steve Sailer has an excellent analysis of why core Americans are being painted as the source of all evil who must be made to pay. www.thebryanhydeshow.com
I happened to catch a bit of the Kyle Rittenhouse trial yesterday and accidentally witnessed one of the most stunning courtroom exchanges I've ever seen. Tucker Carlson hits the highlights in this video and it was definitely one for the history books. The vindictiveness of the prosecution is nothing short of disgraceful. It makes this trial look like anything but a quest for justice. The Rittenhouse trial is a marvelous teaching opportunity about a couple of important topics. One is the natural right of self defense. The other is need for people to take personal responsibility in protecting their communities rather than simply outsourcing this to the state. Christopher Roach has an excellent piece on the need for citizenship and courage. If you're serious about understanding how the world works, economists are your friend. For example, if Raymond J. March hadn't written about how the FDA is coming after "Smart Socks" which monitor a baby's pulse and oxygen levels while it sleeps, how would we have known about its latest crusade?

There are a lot of myths to bust about daylight saving time — does it really save energy? Was it invented for farmers? Does it "end" in November or did it just begin? We do a dramatic reading of Benjamin Franklin's 18th-century sh*tpost that somehow led to him being credited for inventing daylight savings. Then, we take a look at the 2005 energy policy that changed the game (or, really, kept the fossil fuel subsidy game strong). Other topics include mall culture, another win for the golfers, and a haunting prediction about high energy consumption.

The history of weather observations and weather information in North America is certainly older than the arrival of Europeans to the western Hemisphere. Native indigenous peoples had been astute observers of the weather for centuries. Building seasonal clocks and monuments to help track the changes in temperatures and rainfall, Native peoples across the Southern part of what would become the united States were prodigious farmers and relied heavily of seasonal patterns. Founders of the Republic from Benjamin Franklin to Thomas Jefferson were keen recorders of the weather and tried their hand at weather forecasts. More organized approaches were left for a later era. Starting in 1849 the Smithsonian Institution supplied weather instruments to telegraph companies and establishes extensive observation network. Observations submitted by telegraph to the Smithsonian, where weather maps are created. By 1860, 500 stations are making regular observations. In 1869, Telegraph service, instituted in Cincinnati, began collecting weather data and producing weather charts. The ability to observe and display simultaneously observed weather data, through the use of the telegraph, quickly led to initial efforts toward the next logical advancement, the forecasting of weather. However, the ability to observe and forecast weather over much of the country, required considerable structure and organization, which could be provided through a government agency. In 1870, A Joint Congressional Resolution requiring the Secretary of War "to provide for taking meteorological observations at the military stations in the interior of the continent, and at other points in the States and Territories...and for giving notice on the northern lakes and on the seacoast, by magnetic telegraph and marine signals, of the approach and force of storms" was introduced. Congress passed the resolution and on February 9, 1870, President Ulysses S. Grant signed it into law. A new national weather service had been born within the U.S. Army Signal Service's Division of Telegrams and Reports for the Benefit of Commerce that would affect the daily lives of most of the citizens of the United States through its forecasts and warnings for years to come. The on November 8, 1870 the First storm warning by U.S. Signal Corps weather service was issued for Great Lakes area by Prof. Latham of Milwaukee marking the first ever official weather forecasted warning issued in the United States.

Yes it's that time of year again! It's Daylight Savings Time, the time of year when we get to “fall back” and set our clocks back one hour to get an extra hour of time in our day. But what exactly is daylight savings time anyway. The concept has always been confusing to Tawnya so she decided to educate herself. Who decided we needed to change our clocks twice a year? What does Benjamin Franklin have to do with it? Tawnya had all the questions and found some answers, but more importantly, does she understand how it works. Tune in to find out.

Eighteenth- and 19th-century contemporaries believed Marshall to be, if not the equal of George Washington and Benjamin Franklin, at least very close to that pantheon. "John Marshall: The Final Founder" demonstrates that not only can Marshall be considered one of those Founding Fathers, but that what he did as the Chief Justice was not just significant, but the glue that held the union together after the original founding days. The Supreme Court met in the basement of the new Capitol building in Washington when Marshall took over, which is just about what the executive and legislative branches thought of the judiciary. "John Marshall: The Final Founder" advocates a change in the view of when the “founding” of the United States ended. That has long been thought of in one or the other of the signing of the Constitution, the acceptance of the Bill of Rights or the beginning of the Washington presidency. The Final Founder pushes that forward to the peaceful change of power from Federalist to Democrat-Republican and, especially, Marshall's singular achievement -- to move the Court from the basement and truly make it Supreme.

Why do we change to DST or Daylight Saving Time? History is happy to explain this to us. It goes back to Benjamin Franklin who only mentioned it in an essay in the 18th century. George Hudson, who was born in New Zealand, introduced it for the first time almost 100 years later. But the first countries to implement it were the German Empire and Austro-Hungary in 1916 in order to save money from electricity and put them into war production. DST was used in WWI & WWII by other countries as well, following these two. It was a bit confusing at times as every country (and sometimes region) was choosing for itself. Nowadays it is a bit more standardized. Support this podcast: https://www.patreon.com/curiouspavel

I have always wanted to know the inner workings of the White House. This book let me pull back the curtain of the White House and see what is going on behind the scenes.

Walter Isaacson | Benjamin Franklin | Book Review by Lisa Woodruff of Organize 365 On Mondays, I will be posting a podcast recording of previously recorded book reviews. These are books that have impacted me that I want to share with you. In October, I dive into my favorite books about Washington, D. C., the White House, and Benjamin Franklin. I absolutely love history and think it has so much to teach us. This week's book review is of Benjamin Franklin: An American Life by Walter Isaacson. Ben Franklin is just such a fascinating human being. I listened to this 25 hour audible book. Every 15 years he was a different person - politician, editor, shopkeeper, diplomat, inventor, and scientist. He was able to make a major impact in each of these fields. We are blessed to know so much about him because he was a devoted keeper of a personal journal. When I read about leaders, I try to see what I can apply to my own life. Even so many years ago, Benjamin Franklin had a mastermind. He was able to get great ideas from a wide variety of different people in diverse industries.

Americans are asking "Who is running the show?" Clearly not Joe Biden. In today's podcast, Savage proves that it's none other than the most dangerous man in America: Bernie Sanders, who masquerades as a nice old guy from Brooklyn but actually a longstanding communist and antisemite who hates America. Sanders is behind AOC, Jayapal and other "front men" who pushed for a $6 trillion aid package. Savage reminds us that a brutal regime CAN happen here, and relates the story of a young Iranian locked up and tortured for two years, just for helping Israel find bomb-sniffing dogs. That man's family goes back 2500 years in Iran, and yet he was not immune. Is anyone immune? No, including the facile & pampered Anderson Cooper of CNN. Mao had the Red Guard; Pol Pot had the Khmer Rouge. Who will be the indoctrinated killers here? The 100s of 1000s of illegal immigrants Joe is letting in? We know that not one of them will write a musical piece of celestial beauty like Beethoven's 7th Symphony. These days Savage drives around with Beethoven on max volume. The podcast ends on an encouraging note. We must get back to basics! In 1787 Benjamin Franklin wrote that God had answered our prayers for peace and a new nation. Today, WE must rely on the religious and moral principles flowing from the old and new testaments, that guided Franklin and the other Founders. Learn more about your ad choices.

What do Steve Jobs, Leonardo da Vinci, Benjamin Franklin and Jennifer Doudna all have in common? Celebrated journalist and author Walter Isaacson calls upon his years of research to explain how curiosity has always fueled creativity among history's greatest innovators, and how each of those individuals shaped the world around them. On this episode Issacson dives deep into the curious obsessions of Jobs, da Vinci's ability to develop a brilliant mind, Ada Lovelace and how she developed the algorithm, and how Doudna's work with gene editing could shape the future to come. A journalist by trade, Issacson served as the editor of Time and then chairman and CEO of CNN before eventually spending 15 years as president and CEO of the Aspen Institute, the international research institute and think tank. Isaacson has also written bestselling biographies on Jobs, da Vinci, Franklin and Albert Einstein, and in 2021 released his latest biography, The Code Breaker: Jennifer Doudna, Gene Editing, and the Future of the Human Race.
