Hello nerds! Welcome to another episode of the Tech for Good Live podcast. It’s a podcast all about using technology to have a positive social impact. It’s fun, it’s friendly, it’s frustrating but it’s always super professional and polished. Our one regular listener will know that was actually a hilarious joke.

In this episode we are talking about far right people continuing to be awful. Charities are demanding that they have a charity commissioner that is neither politicised or you know, evil. And, in news that will surprise everyone, Facebook are awful, harmful, and doing it knowingly, rather than just due to incompetence, so says a whistleblower.

Joining Bex today is Tech For Good team member Fay Schofield.

Our guest is Marie Farmer - Founder of digital health app Mini Mealtimes, an app that helps parents track the nutritional info of the food their children are eating so they can make informed decisions about their families health.
