Episode Info

This week, sometimes co-host Harry Bailey stepped in to help the team defend their cynicism against the refreshingly positive Tom Passmore of Dsposal. He’s a waste disposal and circular economy genius and luckily for him the stat of the month is all about the horrendous amounts of waste we produce and the ways tech is tackling this torrent.

You’ll also hear about an interesting synergy between cosmetics retailer Lush and Bex’s favourite ethical mobile, Fairphone. Sadly there’s no rant this week, but that’s mainly because the gang got stuck in on some worrying uses for IoT devices and ran out of time. Still managed to talk about bats, bears and penguins...oh my.
