In Episode 16, we follow up on some past topics and alsodig into a new debate. A few episodes ago, we talked about diversity data released by Google.

And remembering our college episode, we look at the lowest paying college majors (for enry level jobs), and talk about keeping that kind of data in perspective.We also delve into an interesting debate on "Ban the Box," a moment about removing the question about criminal convictions from job applications. And in What's Dumb with Kristin, we have some thoughts about the trap of Frantic Recruiting.
