We talk with documentary filmmaker Robin Hauser, whose most recent film is called BIAS. We hear about implicit bias, also known as unconscious bias, and how it affects both men and women. We talk about bias in technology, and how technology, specifically VR, can help. Robin gives some insight on how to work around the biases we may not even know we have, and how women can educate men and recruit them as allies. She also asks the rhetorical question, why are we still talking about the gender gap? [...]

In this episode we talk more about the sharing economy, and the fractionalization of assets – instead of producing so many consumer products, we can reduce our carbon footprint and create a new economy. We touch on terrorism, and some of the insecurities inherent in our technology. Pamela advises investing in yourself and being guided by your passions and curiosity. She tells a story about a young man who invested in her company at a critical moment She praises the “curiously faithful” and the “decentralized man”, and advises on the importance of a close, trusted community of friends and advisers. She talks about the importance of supporting other women. And it all goes a little bit wrong at the end of the episode.
