Hello and welcome to the Tech for Good Live Podcast. If you’re new here, it’s a podcast all about using technology to have a positive impact on people and planet. But more often than not it’s a place for mates to come together and rant about the state of the world, and damn do we have lots to rant about.

This week we cover public perceptions of transgender folk, controversial funding announcements and of course we talk about the what’s going on in the US - where firearms apparently have more rights than people who menstruate.

Dama Sathianathan is on hosting duties and she is joined by fellow TFGL team members Greg Ashton and Paul Jakubowski

Our special guest for this episode is Pete Beckett,Tech startup founder at Ethiot.
