Episode Info

This week we are chatting about a robotic turtle funded by Nesta and the most evil people in tech (like every week!) and wondering if the government will ignore another piece of statistical evidence that they paid for… slow clap. 

Sophie Walker is on hosting duties, she’s joined by TFGL team members Hera Hussain, Greg Ashton and Producer Paul.

And our guest this week is Christina McDermott 

Christina is the Managing Director of Cattington, a social media and digital content agency based in Liverpool. 

She’s worked in social media for over ten years and her career has encompassed everything from creating content for clients including Channel 4 and pretending to be the Green Giant on Facebook. (People asked him a lot of questions about poo.)
