The Great Hiatus

Episode 75: Imposter Syndrome, Marvel women in suits, #MeToo, VC Clubs for women

Fascinating article this week in Fast Company identifying women as the canary in the data mine. And we’ll talk about the seven ways to fight imposter syndrome. If you don’t know what that is, we’ll elucidate you. And we’ll tell you about a new VC club for women. Plus, Time’s people of the year are the silence breakers, which, on the anniversary of the Montreal Massacre, is very appropriate. Also appropriate? The twitter-verse’s response to Marvel’s superhero pic.

Episode 74: Google’s Sentiment Analyzer, Gen-x and Amazon's Future Engineers

We should talk about Google’s SENTIMENT analyzer because it thinks being Gay is bad. That’s ok, so’s being over 40 according to a story in INC.com.

Episode 73: Salary woes and updates, Best Canadian cities to live in and Sidewalk Toronto

Fast Co. says women are making less than men in the creative industries by a whopping 32 per cent! And in The Star’s look at the best Canadian cities to live in if you’re a woman, Toronto came in… TENTH. This is despite the innovative brains - like the people who came up with Sidewalk Toronto. And all the awesome tech at the Deloitte Greenhouse this week. And if you’ve ever wondered if you’re being paid what you’re worth in this wacky technology industry, Stack Overflow can help.

Episode 72: Google Pixel 2, role models, Time Magazine

We think Laurie Schultz wrote an important piece for the Huffington Post on being a role model to your daughters. She’s the CEP of ACL and chair of the board for the BC Tech Association. And TIME put out a whole magazine dedicated to women who are changing the world. They highlighted 46, but we know there are so many more. We do, just like we knew that the turn in U.S. politics is bringing more great talent up to Canada. But what about the latest Google announcements on their Pixel 2 and Google Clips? Welcome or Wary about that?

Episode 71: Amazon HQ2, Catalyst, Google Drive, Verrit and BeccaToldMe

Some big changes coming in Google Drive and the newest Apple OS update and Amazon is looking for a new HQ, could a Canadian city provide that spot? Maybe if they haven't heard about the terrible hiring choices Catalyst Canada is making. At least #BeccaToldMe gives us something to be proud of. What about MOMs TO “A very mommy wine festival?” Something to be proud of? We’ll talk about it. And we have to talk about Verrit because it’s so weird. And more than 100 thousand Canadians were effected by the Equifax breach, so of course it’s on the pod.

Episode 70: Facebook and the election, fake partners, Flipd app and Google Maps

Facebook just released some information about inauthentic accounts and their influence on the 2016 US election that we should talk about because things couldn’t possibly get weirder on THAT front. Speaking of weird things - there’s an app to get students to stop fiddling with… their apps. Penelope Gazin and Kate Dwyer faced a lot of sexism and condescension when they launched their e-commerce marketplace for weird art until they introduced an imaginary cofounder named Keith. We're loving this awesome twitter thread satirizing how SOME men talk about women that reverses the sexism with humour. And Google Maps has some additions you might not have noticed and they're updating their content and data with AI.

Episode 69: Amazon Tenmarks, lonely nerds, eclipses, and when women stopped coding

This is our last podcast before school starts, and we want to talk about Amazon’s new TenMarks writing coach. And we like the idea of shutting down hate accounts all over the place that’s spreading like wildfire in the wake of Charlottesville. We also loved the NY Times article about the dangers of that whole lonely genius nerd stereotype. We don’t LOVE the graph NPR released tracking when women stopped coding but we love the attention to the problem. Now let’s fix it! Andwe want to tell you how TECH helped the visually impaired enjoy the eclipse - safely.

Episode 68: Anon-IB, Google madness, twitter smackdown, and #MakeMineMilkshake

We could spend the entire episode talking about that Google document because it's repercussions just keep spilling out. But we also have to talk about the Marvel editor who was getting trolled for basically being a female writer for Marvel. Fortunately, she got lots of support for her online, even from competitors like DC Comics. And Dr. Karin Lachmi has a radical proposal to fix inequity between men and women in STEM fields, while getting a seat at the table continues to be a fight. We'll talk about that too. If you didn't follow the twitter fashion battle between one sexist bro and the gentleman who shut him down, we are happy to tell you all about it. And a Toronto woman is battling the people who stole her identity by contacting other women whom she observes suffering the same fate. And Bob LeDrew pointed us at an article about men using science to prove their superiority.. let us talk you through it.

Episode 67: Vimeo promotes Anjali Sud, a whole new Doctor, Airbnb karma and the Roomba

You might remember an AirBnB story we talked about a few months ago where a host cancelled a reservation when he found out his guests were Asian. Happy to tell you about the happy ending to that story - because karma is ALSO Asian. We also want to tell you about X factor Ventures, a new VC fund that will invest $3 million US in female-led startups. Vimeo just promoted Anjali Sud as their new CEO and we're thrilled, as well as Google's promotion We are excited for the newest Doctor Who and not that concerned about her gender because the Time Lord is an ALIEN. And don’t turn your back on that Roomba! It’s making a map of your house!
