It's our regular "Tech Check" with Andrew Zaleski, lead reporter for the tech news website, Technically Baltimore. He joins Nathan Sterner in the studio.

Learn more about Madison Maryland, which allows you to comment on about a half-dozen bills in the General Assembly this year. More from Technically Baltimore here.

Learn more about Girl Develop It in Baltimore at their Meetup group here. More on diversity in tech here.

Technically Baltimore has more on the city website's redesign.

"If radio were a two-way visual medium," Nathan would see WYPR listeners every weekday between 5am and 3pm. Weekday mornings, Nathan serves up the latest Maryland news and weather (interspersed with the occasional snarky comment). Nathan also does continuity breaks through the midday, adds audio flaire to Sheilah Kast's "On The Record," infrequently fills in for Tom Hall on "Midday," does all sorts of fundraising stuff, AND "additional tasks where assigned". When not at WYPR, Nathan teaches a class on audio documentary at Towson University, and spends their spare time running around Baltimore's neighborhoods and hiking around Maryland's natural areas. Before coming to WYPR, Nathan spent 8 years at WAMU in Washington -- working every job from part-time receptionist to on-air host, gaining experience in promotions, fundraising, audience analysis, and program production. They've also served as a fundraising consultant, assisting dozens of public radio stations nationwide with on-air fundraisers. Originally from rural Pennsylvania, Nathan has called Charm City home since 2005.
