Richard Bronson is one of 70 million people in the United States who is living with a criminal record. His former company, Stratton Oakmont, was the basis of Martin Scorsese's film Wolf of Wall Street, and his actions there landed him a stretch in a federal penitentiary and a $100 million fine. After paying his debt to society, he started a new company, 70 Million Jobs. They have embraced the mission to match up as many of those individuals as he can with the most meaningful jobs that best utilized their talents. Richard talks with Jon and Pete about how the mission came about, how that collective pool of talent sizes up, and how we can put the largest number of that vast resource to work to combat recidivism.
