Episode Info

The team recorded this the day before something happened in Russia that we are trying not to think about, for that reason they’re much jollier than their current mood (football was never really coming home). Ben steps up for the leadership role this week, with some witty football references and we have a new member of the team making her Pod debut, Sacha! She’s more interested in the ‘for good’ rather than the ‘tech’ and brings a more youthful outlook to this usually jaded band of misfits.

On the Pod this week we have positive stats for charity digital progress, water for festivals, snake oil on the web and a rant about the already frightening progress without boundaries approach in facial recognition tech.
