Episode 54 : The one where we seriously debated talking about North Korea before we actually did it.  This week in hot topics - an Indonesian football team has sexist tags in their jerseys, a Vogue staffer gets in hot water over an Instagram photo, and American Apparel has a conundrum involving free speech and labor rights. (Sheesh!) In other news, Lisa will tell you how to buy a wardrobe that looks exactly the one worn by your favorite television character (i.e. Claire Underwood in House of Cards). Also, Kim Jong Un has a new haircut and we might have an opinion about it. (Surprised?) Our main topic is about networking. Hate networking? That’s okay, we do too. We will tell you some hints, tips, and lessons we have learned in the wild, wild world of meeting strangers for business purposes.
