On this week’s show we’re talking about how the internet is tracking you. We chat about “Safer Internet Day” and discuss a more ethical ride sharing service.

Host Bex is joined by TFGL team members Greg Ashton, Mille Vardheim and Producer Paul.

And our guest this week is Chris Paul, Social Entrepreneur, Senior Non Profit Professional, and former Elected Representative, as a Manchester Councillor from 2011-2019. He was also a founder of City Life, the Manchester-based news, arts and listings magazine that was published between December 1983 and December 2005.
