Episode Info

Three really is the magic number this week with the three amigos taking the reigns as they discuss another thinly veiled attempt to sell stuff disguised as a report, a fantastic new ad campaign from Channel 4 on hate speech and mental health chatbot that’s been getting some great reviews from its users.

The three musketeers also took some time to discuss the ethical conundrum of whether to carry out an ocean clean up job if it runs the risk of causing harm to the marine life. This is all before Greg yet again uses the pod to talk about stuff he’s been up to, this time Spider-Man. He has no-one else to talk about this with so we let him off.
