Airing on Monday, March 30, 2015: First up, we talk with Marisa Kendall, reporter for The Recorder, about the Kleiner Perkins trial. Next, we take a look at Northeastern University's plan to launch a series of educational hubs embedded directly in select companies across the Bay area – starting with Silicon Valley. The Boston college says the program takes a unique hybrid approach - part online, part face-to-face instruction - and aims to draw in more women and minorities to the STEM field. How does it plan to do that? Also, Marketplace’s Tobin Low brings us an audio postcard from the maker of MiMu Gloves, a gestural instrument that works like a wearable theremin.
