Welcome to the Tech for Good Live podcast! In case you’re new here, come on in and take a seat, if you’re an old hat - thanks for sticking around. This podcast is all about discussing how we use technology for social good, and how more often than not it ends up being used for evil.
In this episode we’re chatting about parents giving their kids career advice, fake social media accounts and The Handmaid’s Tale. Lots of cheery stuff then.
