On this week's "Back to School" episode, I spoke with Nicole Reitz-Larsen, a high school teacher in Salt Lake City, who also works with Code.org to help students see that computer science is about so much more than a bunch of computer nerds with no friends.

We spoke about in-class strategies teachers can use to keep students engaged and inspired as well as resources parents can use to enrich their students' interest in computer science outside the classroom.

Health IT has great potential to change health outcomes in a variety of different ways. Today, Jermane Bond and I discuss health disparities among black Americans, particularly black men, and how health technology can help create better outcomes in underserved communities.

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.

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.

I'm very excited about my guest today, Rachel Rodgers. Rachel is a business lawyer turned business coach, intellectual property strategist, and the creator of Small Business Bodyguard.

In 2013, she created the Small Business Bodyguard: Cover Your Bases, Cover Your Assets, Cover Your Ass. This game-changing legal resource has been called “fun and engaging” by New York Times bestselling author Chris Brogan and a “graduate-level course on how to build a strong foundation for your business” by CEO of OurDeal, Kyle Durand.

Rachel is known in the legal industry and beyond for being an innovator and master of productizing services and creating high-quality, high profit products. SBB and the other legal kits she has created have been transformative, generating half a million dollars in revenue in just two years and serving 1,700 small businesses around the country. And she achieved those results with almost no active marketing because she simply didn’t have the time (she literally launched SBB with a newborn baby in her arms).

How does the persistent lack of media ownership diversity enable the hateful rhetoric we've seen from the Trump campaign and on social media?

Executive Vice President and General Counsel of the National Hispanic Media Coalition (NHMC), Jessica Gonzalez, joins me today to discuss these issues, what we can do about them, and how to find a sliver of peace amidst the daily bombardment of vitriol.

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.
