Hello and welcome to yet another episode of the Tech for Good Live podcast! In case you’re new here, it’s a podcast all about the use of technology for social good. Although, we seem to spend most of our time talking about technology that is the absolute worst.

In this episode we’re talking about deepfakes, Tom Cruise, and, potentially, the death of truth on the internet. We discuss culture wars, and we learn more about the recent Roblox scandal.

Joining host Bex we have Tech For Good Live team members Greg Ashton and Jonny Rae-Evans

Our special guest this week is Lex, Co-Founder & Design Director at COMUZI, a design studio building future-positive digital products, services & experiences.

It also highlighted the trend for opposition parties to form coalitions to challenge autocrats, citing the Czech Republic and Israel as places where this has succeeded. Similar alliances have been formed in Hungary and Turkey.
