Episode Info

Dsposal are fast becoming a friend of the pod with the gang hosting their second guest from that awesome company, Sophie Walker. Join her in confusion as the gang talk through dodgy research into gender imbalance in AI research, dodgy Jungle Book references and dodgy tax suggestions.

 

All in all, it’s a pretty dodgy show, probably explains Bex’s random segways.
