My guest today is Jennifer L. Pozner, founder and executive director of Women In Media & News (WIMN), a media analysis, education and advocacy group. She’s also the author of Reality Bites Back: The Troubling Truth About Guilty Pleasure TV.

Jennifer has appeared as a media commentator on NBC, CNN, Fox News, MSNBC, ABC News Now, GRITtv, Democracy Now!, National Public Radio, and Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart.” She’s gone head to head with Bill O’Reilly, Sean Hannity and Joe Scarborough. Forbes has named Jennifer one of “20 Inspiring Women To Follow On Twitter” and BizTech Day’s list of “25 Influential Business Women in New York City You Should Follow on Twitter” has included Jennifer alongside Tyra Banks, Martha Stewart and Vera Wang.

In this episode, we discuss the role of reality TV in shaping public opinion and how you can evaluate what you watch on reality TV instead of abandoning it altogether.

How often have you spent months writing a white paper, planning that launch event and your social media strategy around it, only to find that by 2 or 3 days later, your audience has moved on? Your brand new paper is now sitting on that proverbial "dusty shelf" where policy briefs go to die, even though your funder spent thousands of dollars for it.

In this week's episode, you're going to learn how to extend the value of your content over a longer period of time, which not only ensures your continued relevance, but also what your funders actually get for their investment in your organization.

In this episode, Marcus Jimenez, Founder and CEO of StickyDocs, tells us how to tell better stories with our data in a way that has more staying power. He also discusses his new accelerator that teaches entrepreneurs from underrepresented backgrounds how to run successful companies.

Whether you're a policy professional or not, you're not going to want to miss this episode.

My guest today is Dr. Ximena Hartsock, with opening remarks by Virginia Congressman Bobby Scott.

Congressman Scott discusses the recent EEOC report on tech sector diversity.

And, once again, you'll come away from my interview with Ximena INSPIRED and FIRED UP to blast through whatever is holding you back. We'll also talk about Ximena's company, Phone2Action, which helps advocates and policy professionals get out of the ivory tower, and into communities via Phone2Action's suite of mobile tools.

I don't say this enough, but I am SO PROUD of my guests!

Listen up. Listen now.

Gentrification. It's a dirty word for some. For others, not so much. Irrespective of which side of the debate you fall on, some groups always seem to be excluded from opportunities to use the power of tech to become the absolute best version of themselves.

Bruce Lincoln, has not only been working to make sure New York City's tech scene is as inclusive as the city itself, his program, Silicon Harlem, has made actual progress.

In this week's episode, Bruce and I discuss what Mayor Bill de Blasio's administration has done to make NYC's tech sector more diverse and inclusive, and how Silicon Harlem plays a central role in that effort throughout the five boroughs.

Have you ever wondered what ISPs do with data about how you spend your time online? The FCC recently proposed rules to improve how ISPs protect data they collect from lawful web activity.

Please join me and Sarah J. Morris, Senior Policy Counsel of New America's Open Technology Institute, who explains for us the types of information ISPs collect, how ISPs use that information, and how the FCC's rulemaking should be crafted to protect your lawful, private data from being exploited and abused.

My guest today is Matt Wood, Policy Director at Free Press.

In this episode, we look at the policy implications of the DC Circuit's recent decision to uphold the FCC's net neutrality rules.

Specifically, we examine the likelihood that the telecom sector will appeal, actions by Congress to "gut" the FCC's ability to enforce the net neutrality rules, how much power the FCC now has to regulate things like privacy and pricing, and how Matt envisions traditional civil rights groups and mainstream progressive groups will work together going forward.

Demand for better computer science education is hitting an obstacle: a lack of great STEM teachers.

In this episode, I spoke with researcher and EdTech platform developer Dr. Melissa A. Rasberry who tells us how we can train teachers without computer science degrees to excel at teaching computer science, how to inspire kids who aren't interested in computer science, and what parents can do to reinforce their kids' computational skills over the summer.

My guest today is Victor Yocco. Victor is an expert in user experience (UX) design, but has also been doing a lot of advocacy around the role of alcoholism in the tech sector.

Alcohol looms large in Washington as well, where we attend countless events where the wine and beer are poured freely and it's easy to overdo it.

So, in this episode, you're going to hear about Victor's own struggle with alcohol and what you can do if you feel pressured to consume alcohol to get ahead in your workplace.

But you're also going to hear some tips you can implement immediately to use key psychological principles to help your content stand out. Victor has a new book out entitled "Design for the Mind: Seven Psychological Principles for Persuasive Design". And there's a coupon code at the end, so you're going to want to listen up for that.

So it's a bit of a mash-up this week, but combining seemingly unrelated topics is something I've been experimenting with lately.

Enjoy.

My guest today is New York Times Bestselling author Joseph Torres. In this episode, Joe and I discuss the historic underpinnings of today's toxic political dialogue and how the FCC's regulatory approach has for nine decades paved the way for hate speech against racial, ethnic and religious minorities and women.

The long and short of it is that it's nothing new. However, thankfully, the internet is still this amazing place where any of us can listen and be heard. So how do we protect it? Joe works day in and day out trying to answer that very question.

It's not you. Real, systemic barriers prevent minorities and women from advancing in the tech sector, and you can call them out without being a "hater".

In this episode, Wayne Sutton and I discuss the statistics, how you can grow your network to smash through those barriers, and what the best tech companies are doing right to promote an inclusive work environment.

Whether you work in the tech sector or not, this is one episode you're not going to want to miss. See you inside!

Have you ever spent hours writing a white paper that no one seems to read or cite to no matter how much you share it? Today, content marketing is 9/10ths of effective advocacy. No longer can you expect donors to give out of the goodness of their hearts. The harsh reality is that either you have an engaged audience, or you don't.

Fortunately, content marketing is something you can learn and excel at.

In a departure from the purely policy focus that characterizes most of my interviews, today's episode is tactical. Katja Schroeder, Managing Partner at Bloom PR and Adjunct Professor of International Marketing and Social Media Marketing at St. Francis College in Brooklyn, is here to help you get unstuck.

Your hard work deserves more attention. Here's your toolkit for going from zero to 60. See you inside.
