Welcome to the 208th episode of the Inc. Uncensored podcast, hosted by Inc.'s editor in chief, James Ledbetter.

First, Inc.com staff writer Kevin Ryan explains how after years of rapid growth, the solar-power industry is now in decline as a result of recent White House policies. A new report shows the sector lost nearly 8,000 jobs over the past year. Kevin spoke with entrepreneurs in the field, and explains how small solar companies are coping.

The next segment is about Reddit: I'm Christine Lagorio-Chafkin, and this week I went to San Francisco to interview the social site's co-founder and CEO, Steve Huffman. The company had just raised its largest funding round to date, $300 million, from Chinese tech giant Tencent and others. Turns out, Huffman says, it was also Reddit's easiest round to raise ever. I explain what else I learned.

And finally, Inc.com assistant editor Cameron Albert-Deitch has the story of a new generation of black entrepreneurs rising in Atlanta--and what they had to go through to get started.
