Welcome to the 148th episode of the Inc. Uncensored podcast, hosted by Inc. editor James Ledbetter.

This week, Inc. editor-at-large Burt Helm discusses the meteoric rise of Halo Top, the Los Angeles-based independent ice cream brand that bills itself as a healthy dessert. Founded in 2012 by two jaded lawyers with zero food expertise, Halo Top has become the fastest-growing ice cream in the U.S., on track to pull in more than $100 million in 2017.

Then, staff writer Zoë Henry discusses how the Trump administration's immigration policies may inadvertently be sending business to Canada. The U.S. president is preparing to trim back the H-1B visa, a national program for hiring specialized talent that is widely used by the tech industry; Canada, by contrast, has introduced a new program that allows workers to obtain visas in just two weeks.

Finally, during our Exit Interview segment, the group speaks with entrepreneur Nicole Tanner about what is was like to sell Swig, a Mormon purveyor of so-called "dirty soda," which recently sold to the American Fork, Utah-based Four Foods Group.
