From Nike supporting Colin Kaepernick to Qantas supporting same-sex marriage, corporations are going woke. Carl Rhodes is the Dean of the Business School at the University of Technology, Sydney... and, perhaps surprisingly, a leftist. He decries "woke capitalism" so much that he's written a book about it. He and Josh wrestle with the threat of wokeness and ask: Should companies keep their noses out of cultural questions, or is a corporate social conscience better than none?
