Hi Lab,

  • Brandeis Marshall, data scientist, Professor of Computer Science at Spelman College; Founder of DataedX

  • Emily M Bender, Professor of Linguistics at the University of Washington

  • Pedro Domingos, Professor of Computer Science at University of Washington

  • Caroline Criado Perez, writer and campaigner

  • David Reich, Professor of Genetics at Harvard Medical School

My thanks to producer Craig Templeton Smith and editor Jasper Corbett.

Best wishes,

Michael
