We're back in the studio this week and Sophie Walker from Dsposal is in the hosting hotseat, sitting in for Bex who is currently drowning in a sea of foster kittens (no, really!)

She's joined by podcast regulars Greg Ashton and Paul Jakubowski from Reason Digital.

And we have a special guest, Alex Alexandrescu. Alex is Co-Founder of Dicey Tech, helping companies prototype and develop smart products, using that same knowledge to create future-proof educational experiences.
