    Ep. 12 | Bet a Dude Made This Thing

    From microphones being designed to amplify lower voices, phones being too big & pockets too small, nowhere to put purses in a car or restroom, and male-only car crash test dummies, it is clear that male-dominated design isn't just inconvenient for women, but can be dangerous too.
    Buffie & Carolyn discuss these issues, and welcome guests Tina Nguyen and Danika Hannon to tell us about careers for women in STEM and design!
