CNN commentator, former Obama administration "Green Jobs" advisor, and founder of Dream Corps, Van Jones stopped by the offices to talk about his #YesWeCode initiative to make the tech industry more diverse. This was an AMAZING interview that veered off into some big topics (as it always does) including the root of global populist movements on the left and right, how technology has exasperated our extreme partisanship, and the time he completely geeked out when meeting Prince for the first time. Also he called (the newly jobless) Bill O'Reilly a "dick"! Check this one out!

We talked to Dr. Amy Hasinoff, an assistant professor at the University of Colorado Denver and author of the book Sexting Panic about America's favorite pastime: SEXTING! The polls show that not only are a clear majority of young people (sexually active teens and young adults) sending out pictures of their bits and pieces, but all demographics--right on up to seniors--are partaking. Why? It's really fun! But it's also not without some risk. We talk about the steps people can take to protect their privacy, as well as how the law and Big Tech can adapt to accommodate this phenomenon that is not going away.
