Anthony is an accomplished high school teacher who became a lawyer and advocate for computer science education in Arkansas. Listen to Anthony's story and our conversation about the scope and possibilities of computer science education in Arkansas. We start the episode by asking Anthony what his favorite Arkansas restaurant is, and he gives possibly the most Arkansan answer.
