Hello and welcome back to yet another episode of the Tech for Good Live podcast. A podcast all about the ways technology does good in the world.
We’ll be talking about Threads, obviously. It would be weird not to and we’ll be looking into how some decisions being made in the US courts are affecting tech.
Our special guest this week is Dan Owen.
Dan is a trustee and developer at BanktheFood, a charity on a mission to ensure food banks always have exactly what they need and not just baked beans. In this episode, Dan will give us his thoughts on the latest news, but tune in to next week's episode to hear more about the amazing work he is doing with BanktheFood, an award winner at the recent Tech4Good Awards.
