Science and Technology Guests on Late Night, Week of April 9

Well, at least there was something technology related for the monologues last week.  As you might expect, the Congressional testimony of Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg was the topic of late night shows last week.  While the reason behind the testimony – the shady data practices of Cambridge Analytica through Facebook – was worth exploring, the all-too-easy topic of Zuckerberg’s lack of emotional intelligence shown through in the jokes.

HBO is still promoting the latest season of Silicon Valley, and co-star Zack Woods appeared on Conan on April 10.

The Comedy Central programs delivered more than Mr. Zuckerberg last week, specifically on April 12.  The Daily Show guest was Karlie Kloss.  She’s best known as a supermodel, but has also been a correspondent on Bill Nye Saves the World and founded Kode with Klossy, an organization designed to encourage young girls to explore computer coding.  That same night The Opposition hosted Bari Williams.  Ms. Williams is an attorney and executive who advociates to Silicon Valley companies on diversity efforts.
