For the last four years we’ve been talking about how tech can be used to make the world a better place.

How’s that working out? Ah.

Never ones to let failure get us down, we have an epic show lined up.

We’re talking about the radical global shift to working from home and its effect on work-life balance. We’re talking about the National Trust and them facing a backlash for… telling the truth about history…

And we're talking about how Elon Musk is the last person on earth you should let mess with your brain. Or use the internet. Or name a child. Or… anything really.

Host Rebecca Rae-Evans is joined by TFGL regular Greg Ashton and our special guest this week is Chi-chi Ekweozor, Organiser of a female tech founder meetup and founder of Assenty, an interactive question board platform that helps event organisers make a personal connection with their audiences before, during and after an event.
