Subsea Cables | Toxic Masculinity

Monday, May 21, 2018

Virginia Beach announced plans this month for a third subsea cable which could bring 200 high tech jobs to the city. We'll talk to councilman Ben Davenport, a leading proponent for subsea cables, about what this means for the city. We'll also talk to Joel Ogren, CEO of ACA International, the company that plans on creating these tech industry jobs. And later we'll take a look at the economic forecast for the region with ODU economics professor Bob McNab. And in the second half of today's show, we'll discuss the idea of "toxic masculinity" and how it contributes to mass shootings in the wake of yet another deadly school shooting at a high school in Texas.
