TFGL Weekly - Blockchain For Good?

Episode Info

As the weekly pod attendance gets more out of hand, Bex and Greg are joined by friends of the pod Kirsty Styles and Harry Bailey. The guest this week is a fantastic last minute stand in from Beth Wiltshire from the Democracy Society, self proclaimed tech novice and owner of an iPhone 3.

 

This week the gang are looking at whether blockchain is all that, the benefits of user-generated content, smart cities and some unplanned and fairly lengthy political discussion. Bex playing fast and loose with the timekeeping after her break.

 

They end the show on why social good projects should be sharing information more rather than wasting money solving the same problems and why science mistakes are great for the environment.
