Description

Welcome to Season 2! Looking to be a little more introspective, a little more philosophical, and a little weirder this time around. Looking forward to seeing where it takes us, and hope you enjoy the journey.

To kick things off, Chris talks to Dr. Steven Mintz, retired Professor Emeritus from Cal Poly State University in San Luis Obispo. Steve has spent the last few decades studying, writing about and teaching on the subject of ethics. His first book was a textbook titled Ethical Obligations and Decision Making in Accounting, which won him the Accounting Exemplar Award in 2015 for a lifetime of contributions in the field of ethics. 

His first book for a commercial audience was published in 2019. Beyond Happiness and Meaning: Transforming Your Life Through Ethical Behavior explains how to make ethical decisions that bring happiness and greater meaning to life.

Chris and Steve discuss ethical frameworks, how those frameworks translate to behavior from the individual to corporations, and finally to political institutions, and how we think about behaving ethically during the pandemic crisis we find ourselves in.
