Today I address the controversy over HBO’s newly announced show, The Confederate. I also discuss the entitlement in tech with an article I recently read about inclusion of food options at technical events and meetups. Finally, I share my thoughts on Patreon’s recent ban of political commentator Lauren Southern.
Today I go back to a story I covered in episode #61 related to an Asian woman being denied an Airbnb due to her race. A clip shared with me from Steven Crowder’s show shed new light on some details I was previously ignorant of so I thought I’d share the misleading representation of this event. I also give a PSA related to Drupal and address yet another departure from Github.

Today I discuss the latest controversy in tech surrounding VCs and harassment following the NYT’s article “Women in Tech Speak Frankly on Culture of Harassment”. I share my thoughts on some of the accounts in the article, the dating tactics of male feminists, and what these events should teach us about our privileges of being in tech.
