Episode Info

On the podcast this week we talk about tech being used for good. Again. Do you keep your social media profile private? We talk about that. And vigilantes are shaming people who damage national parks. A bit like a shit but less violent batman.

Reason Digital's Greg Ashton and Producer Paul are here and Harry Bailey has jumped into into the hosting hotseat.

And we have a guest! Jack Sheppard joins us!

Jack is a digital product designer and creative event producer who splits his time between London and Manchester. He focuses on making products and services simple for real human beings and encouraging designers to think about the real-life implications of the things they design. You can find him on Twitter @madebysheppard and his website.
