Episode Info

This week we’re talking about money. Billions and billions of pounds of money. And also the value of carers. Maybe they’re one and the same thing?

Action for Children have a plan to help children share how they’re feeling, with digital.

And health apps, those cheeky rascals, are sharing your data in ways you would not believe. Or maybe you would. Because you listen to this podcast. And we’ve prepared you for the end times.

Jonny and Bex Rae-Evans are back this week and are joined by Greg Ashton and Producer Paul.

This weeks topics:
