Women have always been pivotal to the creation, growth, and success of the Internet. Yet we typically hear the same few stories about the same few men. Today’s guest Claire Evans is here to change that—or at least contribute to what she hopes will be an ongoing conversation.

Our Host David-Michel Davies sits down with Evans to discuss her new book Broad Band: The untold story of the women who made the Internet—including her path to researching and writing the book, her Steve Jobs-esque author photo, and why it’s so important to tell nuanced stories about women.
