What if we considered time beyond ourselves, into the 100 years that frames our life in both directions? From the cultural context that shaped you, to the society that will exist in 100 years that you’re participating in right now? Given that, what’s your purpose for being here?

I do not spend this episode trashing public relations. But I do spend a lot of time exploring why PR is...
