ISIS is notorious for its avid use of social media as a mouthpiece to spread propaganda and the hacktivist group Anonymous is looking to put a stop to it. Then, a former coal industry worker and his company are looking to break the stereotype that surrounds Appalachia and teach former coal miners to code.  Also, we're talking about gadget gift ideas for your kids. 

Guests:
