Hello and welcome back to the hottest pod on record. The Tech for Good Live Podcast. With the entire planet ablaze, some of the volunteers here at Tech for Good Live have decided to spend another hour in front of screens to talk about all the key topics going down this week.

And what a blistering show we have lined up for you. We talk about my Tom’s favourite subject - waste and recycling! What a treat.

We hear about the roasting that International aid organisations took from the University of Oxford.

And is Meta going to bask in the glow of appreciation for its first annual human rights report? Hold onto your earbuds everybody - this one is going to be a scorcher!!!

The heat affected podcast record left us with a skeleton crew of Tom Passmore on hosting duties, joined by fellow TFGL team member Greg Ashton.

Sadly this costs money and we desperately need your help to make this become a reality! So if you've ever tuned into one of our podcasts or attended one of our events please consider chipping in the price of a cup of coffee.
