Hello and welcome to yet another, in a seemingly endless stream of Tech for Good Live podcasts. It’s a show where a bunch of friends get together and talk about how to use technology to have a positive social impact.

In this episode we’re talking about how you can’t trust anything you see on Instagram, especially if someone is telling you they’re going to plant a tree.

We discuss the extraordinary demand that’s going to be placed on charity services this winter. And we chat about a new digital project to help support people with “atypical” speech.

Joining host Bex Rae-Evans we have podcast regular Greg Ashton and Tech For Good Live team member Harriet Pugh.
