    People on the other side of the fence about the Julie drama were referred to as “peanut gallery” and “trolls”. How can you host controversial topics such as hackers and sexism and not give both sides an equal share of conversation?

  • Regarding : While I’m a fan of the user submitted Q/A, I think the show could use less repetition of questions. I think we’ve heard this question a dozen times and the really just boils down to “it depends”. The show would benefit from passing on this question and a few other questions we’ve heard multiple times.

    Just some honest feedback. Keep up the great work!

    She lucked out. The concept that she had a job when she got back working in a completely different field is almost unheard of in today’s economy unless you are in the army, but at least in the army they usually know what your education/intellectual aptitude is. In this case, they seemed to find keeping her to be a general positive return on her coming back unless they thought, well, she might learn, but she will come back as her previous position.
