In this episode, Coss Marte tells us how he went from drug kingpin to fitness entrepreneur using a regimen he developed in prison. Then we head outside to find out how people have reinvented themselves, and chat with television pundit Lawrence O’Donnell about how he reinvented himself as a socialist (and why some people are so scared of socialism).
