Welcome to another episode of the Tech for Good Live podcast.
In this episode we are talking about some good news for environmental activists, as well as the good, and the bad of social media… and is it possible to have any kind of decent balance there?
Joining host Bex are Tech For Good Live team members, Greg Aston, Tom Passmore and Paul Jakubowski
Our special guest this time round is Nicki Clegg from STEM Learning UK. Nikki will be discussing our news topics with us this week. Come back for the next episode where we will be finding out more about STEM Learning UK’s vision to have a world-leading STEM education for every young person in the UK.
Good story of the week:
Some good news on the environment front. 16 young people win a court case in Montana, holding the state to account for failing to protect the environment and investing in fossil fuels.
And analysis shows we've been overestimating the amount of plastic in our oceans by as much as 30x!

Bad news story of the week:
If you're over a certain age Tik Tok is the source of all our current evils. At least on social media. But is it that simple? With social media in a time of change, can we balance the good with the bad on social media? Is the human race even capable of not making a mess of it?
Cooking just got a whole lot easier…especially if weapons of mass destruction are on the menu
