Welcome back to a new season of the Tech for Good Live podcast! If you’re new here, run now and never look back, joking of course! We’re a podcast focused on chatting about using tech to have a positive social impact. If you’re a regular listener…God help you.

On this episode we’re talking about data leaks, the rise of the humble text message donation and a different type of world wide web (arachnophobes feel free to tune out at that point)

Fay Schofield is on hosting duties and she’s joined by TFGL regular Greg Ashton.

Our special guest is John Fitzgerald. John works on digital evolution at the Scottish Council for Voluntary Organisations, working with charities to assess and improve their digital capability. John is also a trustee at the Joseph Rowntree Charitable Trust.

If you’re a charity listening to this, John would love you to go get a Digital Checkup to help you to assess your organisation’s current digital maturity and how this compares to other organisations of a comparable size. The check up will help you to identify your strengths and the gaps your organisation is facing. Head to to find out more.

Sadly this costs money and we desperately need your help to make this become a reality!
