When the definition of “driving” is in flux, how does a leading auto insurance company even begin to redefine risk? In Episode 2, host Michael Copeland chats first with Allstate’s Doug Safford and Opal Perry to learn how they are transforming the way they work and preparing for the oncoming shift to autonomous vehicles.

Next, we hear from Naomi Starkman, who may be the only person to leave The New Yorker to become a farmer. She tells us how a dinner with legendary chef Alice Waters kickstarted a series of events that changed her career forever.
