The first two episodes, and the following three, were all recording before the protests over George Floyd's death began in the United States. I imagine that the content of those episodes would have been different if they were recorded later. I wanted to clarify that neither my guests nor I were trying to be silent or to ignore the current conversation about the treatment of black people in America. In today's episode, I dive into how racism can influence software design, and what you can do about it.
