20: Chasing Unicorns - The WeWork Fiasco


The WeWork fiasco has become one of the most controversial business stories in recent years. Following a failed IPO attempt, investors criticized WeWork financials, corporate governance practices and the founder Adam Neumann. Neumann, who sought to change the world via his co-working business model, ended up the villain of employees and investors alike as he walked away from the struggling company with a $1.7 billion payout. Neumann's character has also received widespread criticism. He preached his goal to improve the environment, and then defied this by flying around in a $60m private jet, seeking to become "the world's first trillionaire". Was Neumann the one to blame for WeWork's shortcomings? Or do the investors bear some blame for not calling out what they saw during the companies development? These are the questions we seek to answer on this episode of 'Chasing Unicorns' as we get an exclusive insight from a WSJ reporter, a WeWork investor and a senior employee who witnessed Neumann first hand throughout the development of WeWork.

Our podcast, "VAR in Soccer: A Double Edged Sword", explores how VAR (Video Assistant Referee) has taken the soccer world by storm over the past couple of years. VAR was initially introduced to assist referees in making correct decisions; however, there have been several occasions where the technology has led to incorrect calls, in addition to disrupting the natural flow of the game. This has sparked heated debate across the world in regards to the integration and management of VAR, in order to ensure more correct decisions are made rather than incorrect ones. Our podcast will dive into the benefits and negatives of the inclusion of VAR in the game of soccer, and comparing its use to other sports.

Mental health issues are rampant especially on college campuses.

23: What Do You Meme

Al Mayal, Latifah; Linan, Enrique; Long, Madelyn


Memes. What once began as comedic devices shared amongst similar groups has evolved to become a primary method of delivery for ideas, opinions, and discussions in today's society. Memes have evolved, and in the process have become increasingly difficult to understand and decipher as the humor has become more esoteric. Now, memes have taken to the news as recent developments have created sentiments that memes are furthering the divide between older generations and the tech-centered youth. Today on What do you Meme?, we will be discussing meme culture - it's rise and spread and the growing wave of esotericism sweeping through online image boards. This will be exemplified through an attempt to explain the Loss meme, and the podcast will end on a discussion on some current popular memes that have been wrapped in controversy.

24: The Fictofan EXPLAINED


11: A System Built Around Men: The Unjust Conditions of Incarcerated Women

Abraham, Eliza; Topayeva, Tatiana; Nearny, Katie


The idea of prison is simple. Someone does something society defines as wrong, they're placed in a building where they're kept with others who have done something similarly wrong as a way to punish them for being bad. Life in prison isn't the same as it is outside- for obvious reasons, right? Prisoners have broken the law, they shouldn't be afforded the same rights as those who haven't. But at what point does this treatment go too far? At what point is the punishment doing more harm than it should? At what point is the system failing to do what is intended to do? Today on A System Build Around Men, we'll be looking at the unjust conditions of incarcerated women, particularly healthcare. We'll be taking a broad look at the mental, reproductive, and menstrual health of female offenders, as well as briefly examining the portrayal of female incarceration in the media.
