Episode Info

Happy International Women's Day everyone! And yep if you’re asking… there is an International Men’s Day. Also, be a better person.

This week we’re talking about automated benefit cuts, WWF foul play, Facial recognition for dog shelters, and finalists for the Impact Awards, and I guess, more foul play?

We also make fun of robots, again. And we’re probably high up on their kill list by now.

Joining us this week we have the usuals: Amelia, Sacha, Sophie and Bex, with Mills producing this week because you know, women.

And we have a guest! Helen has worked in the voluntary sector for over 15 years in EU/Govt/local authority policy influencing and campaigning roles.

You may have noticed something different this week; in honour of International Women’s Day we’ll be featuring an all women podcast!
