    Happy Festivus with collard greens and crumpets to our loyal listenership!  Join us for a very special Grindhouse broadcast (The Comic Shoppe and Afronerd Radio at 6 and 7pm, respectively) when we welcome Jamie Broadnax from the stupendous and ever popular BlackGirlNerds.com website.  Ms. Broadnax's BGN site serves as "a place for women of color with various eccentricities to express themselves freely and embrace who they are."  And in perfect Yuletide fashion, not only will we discuss all things "blerdy" (from a woman's perspective) with Ms. Broadnax but we will also address additional pulp concerns:  Sony's unsolicited email "hackathon is the gift that keeps giving; our impressions of the revelations from the fall finales of Arrow, SHIELD and The Flash; Comic Book Resources' The Mission column waxes about the physical changes of Amanda Waller and how that may translate on the silver screen and lastly, is there really only one Black owned comic shop (Third Coast Comics) in the U.S.?  And do we need more?

    A Chat with Pronoy Saha, Founder of Health Technology Forum

    in Health

    The Health Technology Forum is on an incredible growth trajectory. A few years ago, they were a Silicon Valley health tech meet-up. Now they have a national footprint with 4500 members and 13 chapters in 5 different countries: San Francisco, Dallas/FortWorth, San Diego, New York City, Atlanta, Washington DC, Austin, Los Angeles, Toronto, Vancouver, London, Bangalore, and Manila. They have held close to 100 events world-wide, and some of them, like the upcoming Innovation Conference, have become “must attend” events in the health tech space.  

    In this chat on TDWI Radio, we asked the Founder, Pronoy Saha, about his passion in health and technology and his upcoming "Innovation Conference". To give a sneak peak: Saha's passion is to improve access to health care globally using technology. To do so, he organized a hackathon this last weekend focused on behavioral health - a topic that is often ignored in the rush to produce fitness apps and wearables. He and his team have also organized their upcoming annual Health Technology Forum (HTF) "Innovation Conference", themed "Pathways to Sustainable Health." There are more than 75 speakers including keynoter, Dean Ornish MD of the Preventive Medicine Research Institute at UCSF; Stefano Bertozzi, MD, PhD, Dean of the UC Berkeley School of Public Health; Geoffrey Clapp, CEO of Better, and Eric Bing, Director, Global Health at George W. Bush Institute. And as an added bonus all of the competitors in the hackathon (mentioned above) are invited to attend and the top 4 winners will be demo'ing at the meeting.

    Join us as Pronoy describes the journey.  It should be fun.

    Radio [itvt]: Adnaan Wasey, Executive Producer of POV Digital on 6 Stories

    in News

    POV, PBS's long-running showcase for independent non-fiction films, recently unveiled six new interactive documentary shorts that it bills as "allow[ing] audiences to engage...on a deeper level, using new technologies and new paradigms in storytelling" (note: more information on each of the documentaries can be found here). Four of the documentaries were created by alumni of POV Hackathon, POV's weekend laboratory series, which provides mentorship and collaboration opportunities for non-fiction media makers and technologists.

    In this recorded interview with [itvt] editor-in-chief, Tracy Swedlow, Adnaan Wasey, executive producer of POV Digital, discusses how the six films use interactivity and new forms of storytelling to deepen audiences' engagement with their subject matter; describes the work of POV Hackathon; and explains why he believes that documentaries should no longer be confined by traditional linear narratives.
