UW professor's essay sparks debate about why women are underrepresented in computer science
Why are women underrepresented in computer science? Is is systemic forces? Or personal preference? We speak to a University of Washington lecturer who says it's the latter, and the executive director of Ada Academy who says it's the former.
We also re-listen to our interview with Emily Levesque, who was drawn to astronomy and black holes by the novel, "A Wrinkle In Time."
Finally, we re-air our conversation with New Yorker poetry Editor Kevin Young from 2017, about how far back the the phenomenon of "fake news" actually goes.
