Welcome to the 171st episode of the Inc. Uncensored podcast, hosted by Inc. senior editor Christine Lagorio-Chafkin.

This week, I discussed the demise of the International Entrepreneur Rule, an Obama-era initiative that would have allowed foreign-born entrepreneurs to remain in the U.S. for up to five years. Late last week, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security announced that it would move to rescind the program, after months of threatening to do so. I also compared the program with similar initiatives from other countries, including France, Canada, Germany and Singapore.

Then, features editor Diana Ransom delves into Inc.'s annual list of the best companies to work for. From pet-friendly offices to truly inspired perks and more, these 285 firms prove that in 2018, it takes more than a 401(k) to attract and retain talent. 

Finally, Inc. editor-at-large Maria Aspan explores how Wawa, a decades-old chain of convenience stores, became a beloved business with more than $10 billion in revenue. The family-run company still owns all 800 of its locations, and is expanding across the East Coast by ditching gas and cigarettes for kale salads and hipster coffee.
