According to a questionable survey Miya found on the internet 70% of people consider themselves to be generalists. In this episode Tina and Miya call Gina Kim, their very first intern, and the millennial that introduced them to the term. In a revealing conversation with Gina our hosts hash out definitions of the word, try to figure out if there’s a difference between generalists or specialists, and get a little too excited about Gina’s boss and the former Chief Technology Officer of the United States Todd Park. Is a generalist someone who’s good at everything, or someone flexible and adaptable enough to wear many hats in an organization, or someone with the ability to step back and see the big picture?
Tune in to get our hosts’ take and their not-so-secret-anymore crushes.
