Ep. 81 – Social Justice Warrior (Coraline Ada Ehmke)



Coraline wears the Social Justice Warrior title proudly. She fights the battles, working tirelessly to create safer spaces for more people in tech. But noble as her cause may be, it is not without controversy. We talk to Coraline about what it means to be a social justice warrior, how she’s dealt with the trolling and harassment that comes with it, and how she stays above it and continues to fight.

Ep. 80 – Designing Makerspaces (Kristen Smith)



Kristen Smith has spent a lot of time creating just the right spaces for making.

We talk about what makes a good makerspace, what the behind-the-scenes of one looks like, and how she leveraged her liberal arts degrees to make the tech world more accessible.

Ep. 78 – Hardware Newbie (Emily Xie)



Emily Xie spends most of her time coding in PHP. But recently, she got a chance to do some making by organizing a laser-cutting class for her Girl Develop It chapter. In our first episode for March Is For Makers, our month-long celebration of everything making, we dig into the differences of software and hardware, and how Emily’s software background gave her an interesting perspective on her laser-cutting experience.
