We learn about Alyson's time in film school and the challenges she faced along the way in a male-dominated space. We look at the challenges that still face society today in making culture more welcoming for people of all backgrounds and the great things that follow behind inclusivity. And we of course hear about Alyson's exposure to geek culture in general and the power she thinks it has on society.
