06/02/15 - Join us for Tuesday’s Topical Currents, when we discuss women and their inclusion in the fields of technology and science.  Despite more women currently employed in these areas, women and girls are often not encouraged to pursue advanced studies in math, science and technology.  We’ll have a panel of distinguished women to give their experience & insights.  That’s Topical Currents . . . Tuesday at 1pm.

  • Guests and links:
  • Filmmaker Robin Hauser, the producer/director of CODE:  Debugging the Gender Gap
  • Helen Fernety, Successful Design Lead of Computer team for a national retail company
  • Holly Litchenfeld, Founder of Bright Girls Company. Author of ‘Girlpreneur’

WLRN Radio's Joseph Cooper says producing and hosting Topical Currents is the most rewarding experience of his long radio career, which began at the University of Missouri School of Journalism in the 1970s.
Richard Ives came to WLRN in September 2000 to begin a new career in radio. Born in Fort Lauderdale, his family moved to Long Island, New York, where he grew up. After graduation from college and an unsatisfying stint in a job that, as he puts it, "paid the bills but for which I had no passion" he found himself contemplating a midlife career change after being laid-off.
