Guests: Sarah Jeong
Category: TWiT Bits

Megan Morrone and Jason Howell talk to Sarah Jeong, Senior Writer at The Verge about how history, not science, is to blame for the state of tech industry sexism. Jeong writes that something about American math and science education has changed in the last few decades, which has resulted in more women in STEM than ever before. Except in tech, where female representation is decreasing instead of increasing. We discuss some of the reasons this is happening.
