’Why Aren’t There More Women in Poker?’

In the second episode of The Pay Check conversations series, we bring you two conversations. First we head to the competitive world of poker, where stakes are high and representation of women is low. Annie Duke, who was the leagues leading female money winner, talks to Maria Konnikova, a journalist turned poker player, who has won $200,000 in just a year. The two talk power dynamics and sexism in the ultra male dominated field. Next up, journalists Manoush Zomorodi and Rose Eveleth talk about sexism in media and the difficulties of finding a mentor.
