July 3 | JX Takes A Holiday - With Double Encores

Abigail Marsh with Geoffrey Riley

Independence Day falls on a Saturday this year, so the JX crew would miss out on an off-day if it didn't take Friday off. Now you know why we're running interviews from programs past.

At 8: Sara Watchter-Boettcher reminds us that artificial intelligence (AI) begins with people, and they can unknowingly deliver their biases to their algorithms.

We get the story in the book Technically Wrong: Sexist Apps, Biased Algorithms, and Other Threats of Toxic Tech.

At 9: Even people who like horror movies and roller coasters probably do not like to feel real fear. How we deal with fear is important; so is how we deal with fear in OTHER people. That's what psychologist Abigail Marsh explores in her book The Fear Factor: How One Emotion Connects Altruists, Psychopaths, and Everyone In-Between.

When you see fear in another's face, how do you react? We explore that reaction in this interview.
