Today I discuss the recent controversy at VidCon between Anita Sarkeesian and Sargon of Akkad. I also weigh in on the future of Uber with their CEO’s recent departure and how the government is using this opportunity to grow its scope of power.

Today I’m joined by my good friend Kyle Cline to discuss how to get into the tech industry. We both started our post-college careers outside of tech and give our story on how we made the switch. We also share resume and interviewing tips along with stats in the labor market to show you how little competition you’re facing.

Today I circle back to two old stories. After months of being dark on social media, Palmer Luckey is back and it’s more problematic than a $10k donation to memes. Leaked documents to Breitbart also show Larry Garfield’s removal from Drupal was a sustained effort with controversial tweets dating back to 2010. I also address the latest controversy after ElectronConf was postponed for not having a diverse slate of speakers.
