Episode Info

This week the gang (@rebeccawho, @harrybailey, @jonnyraeevans and @paul_yakabowski) bang their heads against the cushioned walls of the studio as they talk about sexual harassment in big tech. Turns out that if sexual harassment is your business, then - annoyingly - business is booming.

In honour of Anti-Bullying Week, we discuss the rise of cyberbullying it’s grim effects on society.

And that’s not all! It wouldn’t be right if we didn’t throw all kinds of shade at Facebook and their new advertising policy in the run up to the US midterms.

We also talk about robots, because, why not?
