Episode 16: Politics and the modern CEO. Special guest: Caryn Seidman-Becker, CEO of Clear on what she's building and why
It's the same drill every time: You get to the front of the security lane— whether at the airport, a stadium, an office building — and pull out your ID, answer a few questions and then maybe pose for a grainy photo. Caryn Seidman-Becker's Clear aims to end the wait by being the one-stop shop for identity verification. Evan and Dan talk to her about why she's so passionate about this problem and what — after a career on Wall Street — made her embark on this tech-and-security path. Plus, we kick things off with a discussion about whether CEOs have a right — maybe even a duty — to talk politics. Is doing so morale building or a major mistake?
