Welcome back to the Tech for Good Live podcast. What a week – there’s a heatwave afoot, mountains of ice cream are being consumed and we’ve all become starry-eyed by the photos coming back from the James Webb telescope.

We also have an action packed episode for you! This week we are talking about an AI translation project from Facebook, the cost of living crisis, Uber being shady and much more.

Host Fay Schofield is joined by TFGL team members Greg Ashton and Paul Jakubowski.

Our special guest for this episode is Sam Wheeler, Director, co-owner and ‘Admiral of Ops’ at tech for good app development and web design company, Big Lemon.
