Members of the BC Club decided to hold a zoom call on Sunday night to talk about the weekend's events and how the club has responded. We were pretty inspired by their open conversation about race, and decided it was well worth sharing (with their permission.)

Thank you to those of you who participated in the discussion, and to clubber Adam Rostad for additional editing.

Our talk with economist Robin Hanson, not very long ago at all, shaped the way we thought about the coronavirus before it was even a pandemic. Now we have a lot of updating to do, so we invited Robin back on to help us sort out the state of how things have actually played out thus far, and what could come.

Dan Koch is in the middle of a PHD program, dedicating his life to studying and doing therapy in the Christian/post-Christian online space. The small, off-beat, corner of the internet, and a certain generation, is emerging to be a field of study with its own experts, and is a growing and perhaps pivotal group for the unfolding future. How all of this unfolds is very critical.  As people leave the religion and church practices of the past, we see more and more that the religious tendencies built within us are not so easy to mute. Moving forward, we see new norms and tribes rapidly emerging with familiar human dynamics.  It will be important to engage, participate, and even contend for this space to be healthy and balanced. But is that possible, or is it a losing battle?

Daniel Dopp is a crossover guy, not only with music and sports, but also an indie to mainstream crossover guy. Daniel has been involved in putting out vinyl for acts like Chris Staples (twothirtyeight), Emery, The Classic Crime and the rest of the BC music family. He’s hosted house shows and promoted bands and their music since for years. Daniel moved into sports when he got an internship at ESPN in 2013, and is now on-air TV talent whose image is the bearded, tattooed, music guy who wears band shirts on every show. This conversation, also featuring Devin Shelton of Emery, is a very calibrating one that connects the small world that we all know all the way up to what is going on in the mainstream media in the pandemic and political era.

Data science and visualization is currently the most sought after and highest paying field there is.  Our society is increasingly dependent on numbers and data, which has made two particular areas increasingly complex. There is the data that we all generate ourselves that now needs to be considered, its uses, value, and privacy, and secondly, in our information age, it is becoming ever more important to be data literate and know how to consume it and what to trust.
