Tracey Taylor & Lance Knobel

Tracey Taylor and Lance Knobel are the co-founders of the "hyper-local" news site Berkeleyside.com and Uncharted, The Berkeley Festival of Ideas. We discuss the difference between having power and having ideas, and how their conversational line up is diverse by design, unlike other conferences which lean toward the usual (white, male) speakers. Check out the talks (I'll be there!) and get your tickets at berkeleyideas.com. Uncharted 2016 runs October 14th and 15th in Berkeley.

In 2008, Lauren co-created and co-hosted “The Lady Brain Show”, one of the first ever female-led podcasts. Lauren is an award-winning producer, was the Executive Producer of Audio for Salon Media, where she is a regular contributor, and has been a guest host for “The Conversation” on BBC World Service.
