This week, we’re sharing our live show! I joined KPCC’s Public Radio Palooza for a special live taping featuring Dr. Safiya U. Noble, Professor of Gender Studies and African American Studies at UCLA, board member of the Cyber Civil Rights Initiative, and author of Algorithms of Oppression: How Search Engines Reinforce Racism, about how to address inequities caused by the tech industry. I also talked with Julie Lythcott-Haims, New York Times best-selling author of How to Raise an Adult: Break Free of the Overparenting Trap and Prepare Your Kid for Success and Palo Alto councilmember about her goals to address wealth disparity and community displacement. And throughout our episode, you’ll hear performances by singer-songwriter, Monica Martin, who opens up about her journey to becoming a musician.
