Black Folks, Please Get Into This Podcast!
I have recently started learning to code and I would like my daughter to learn as well. I have always loved science and tech as a child but never even considered going into the field. My daughter loves science as well but has moderate dyslexia. I am trying to get her to see herself as a scientist. This podcast is helping me to jump into all things tech and provide my daughter with a STEM education that I feel is necessary for her future. I love that this podcast is geared towards us and makes us feel welcome and comfortable in an industry that has not been welcoming in the past.
