Welcome back to another episode of the Tech for Good Live podcast. It’s a podcast all about using technology to have a positive social impact. Basically just a bunch of cool people talking about all the cool stuff that all the cool kids love. We’re super popular and have happy and fulfilling lives.
In this episode we’re talking about how the world has gotten a little more accessible. And we’ll be talking about spies. But apparently not in an exciting and fun way.
Bex is on hosting duties and she is joined by TFGL team members Greg Ashton and Paul Jakubowski

We’d love it if you gave us a nice iTunes review and told your pals about this podcast!
Thanks to podcast.co for hosting our podcast.
Also, please don't forget this podcast is run by volunteers and we survive on sponsorships and donations. Right now one of our primary goals is to make sure all of our podcast episodes are accessible by making sure EVERY episode is transcribed. Sadly this costs money and we desperately need your help to make this become a reality! So if you've ever tuned into one of our podcasts or attended one of our events please consider chipping in the price of a cup of coffee.
