Ladycast ep 38: Let's dismantle the "lone male genius" myth odd program

    • Arts

This week's guest is Liza Mundy, a senior fellow at New America and the author of this month's cover story in the Atlantic, "Why is Silicon Valley So Awful to Women?"

She's also the author of several books, including "The Richer Sex: How the New Majority of Female Breadwinners is Transforming Sex, Love and Family," and the upcoming book "Code Girls: The Untold Story of the American Women Code Breakers Who Helped Win World War II."
We talked about why Silicon Valley is still so tough for women, what's being done to fix it, and why we should dismantle the myth of the lone male genius.
