The Sony Walkman started the personal electronics revolution with a cassette on your hip.

Welcome to a new episode of the Tech for Good Live podcast. Another space rover has landed safely on Mars. But we're still stuck on Earth trying to figure out how to use the mute button on Zoom. On this week’s episode we’re talking about the big existential questions in tech today. Should Artificial Intelligence be used to read our emotions? Can th…
 
Did you know that two of every five births in America are unplanned? That’s not to suggest that an unplanned baby is going to be an unloved baby, of course, but family planning does tend to offer advantages, especially for families with fewer means, since high birth rates make it particularly difficult for children to escape a vicious cycle of pove…
 
Pod for the Cause host Vanessa N. Gonzalez is joined by Claudia Flores (Senior Campaign Manager at the Center for American Progress), Abraham Paulos (Deputy Director of Policy and Communications at the Black Alliance for Just Immigration), and Jill Yu (Managing Director and Cofounder at Act to Change) to talk about immigration, white supremacy, and…
 
Hello and welcome to those who have both read, and understood, the standing orders. We're back with another episode of the Tech for Good Live podcast. We are “Team Jackie Weaver” and Bex will stand for no nonsense on this episode. This week we’re talking about a more inclusive census. A sincere move or a tokenistic gesture? We discuss cancer charit…

Founded in 2017, New New Age Meats is practically old school when it comes to cultivated meat companies. In mid-2018, the nascent startup debuted its first sausage made with cells from a living pig who the company biopsied at a nearby farm. Rather than being made entirely of animal cells, that historic sausage was part animal and part plant, and th…
 
If you’ve ever heard of Bolt Threads, you may know them as one of the OGs in the space of growing animal products without animals. After all, since they were founded way back in 2009 they’ve been creating spider silk via synthetic biology and fermentation. But the company’s headlines these days typically don’t relate to spider silk at all, even tho…
 
Hello friends and enemies, welcome to a new episode of the Tech for Good Live podcast. We’re talking about trees, NCVO's horrendous bullying problem and a new project to help the homeless in Manchester. Is there genuine intent there, or just another PR stunt.

It's finally February. The longest January in existence is finally over! Hope is on the horizon… that was until a rodent in Pennsylvania called Punxsutawney Phil predicted earlier today that we're in for another six weeks of chilly winter. Cheers Phil. That's right folks, it's Groundhog Day. Fay Schofield is hosting today, she’s joined by TFGL’s Gr…
 
Of all the major meat companies, none has embraced plant protein in the way Canada’s largest meat company, Maple Leaf Foods, has. Not only has the company acquired two well-known plant protein brands—Field Roast and Lightlife—but it’s dramatically expanded those brands’ reach, enabling more meat consumers to enjoy these products. In fact, Maple Lea…

Hello lonely and bored people, welcome back to the Tech for Good Live podcast! We’re talking about some shocking stories. The Washington Post reports that if you kick liars off twitter, then there is less lying on Twitter. There’s some stats to back up this unbelievable statement. We’ve a Third Sector News report that politicians are having some ma…
 
A lot has happened this week. Jonny made some delicious white chocolate and cranberry cookies and went on a wintery hike in the hills. Trump got banned from Twitter, and everywhere else, oh – and there was a deadly attempted coup in the United States. Yep. It’s been a week. Technology and the role it plays in society has perhaps never been under mo…
 
You’ve heard the old adage: Humans plan, and God laughs. That truism could nicely describe Irina Gerry’s life, which has been pretty remarkable so far. She started out growing up in communist Russia, but with fate helping to defy odds, Irina ended up coming to the US and attending Harvard Business School. She eventually worked at one of the biggest…
 
Happy New Year and welcome back to the Tech for Good Live podcast! It is a brand new year filled – so far – with the same kind of awful as 2020. I guess a consistent level of horror is better than a rollercoaster of horror? In this episode, we’ll be talking about LGBTQ+ arrests in Egypt, an increase in donations to charities in the US, Google scrap…
 
If you’re a regular listener of the show, you likely already know that reducing humanity’s reliance on animals for food is one of the most pressing challenges the world faces at this moment. But meat demand just keeps rising and we’re raising more animals for food today than ever before. One thing keeping meat alternatives merely as alternatives is…
 
2020 has been a year unlike any other - from the COVID-19 pandemic to racial injustice, a historic presidential election and more - as we close the door on 2020 and welcome a New Year, The Leadership Conference colleagues LaShawn Warren and Kelly Brewington join Vanessa Gonzalez to take a look back & reflect on all that has happened this year, whil…
 
Welcome back to yet another episode of the Tech for Good Live podcast. If you listen carefully, you might just hear the sound of sleigh bells ringing. Why? Because it’s the Christmas episode of the podcast! Right now, across the world, parents carry out their most treasured Christmas tradition: sterilising the chimney and immediate areas around the…
 
We may hear a lot about solar power and renewable energy, but sadly, our civilization is still voraciously addicted to fossil fuels. Even in a technologically advanced country like America, nearly all — about 90 percent — of the energy we use still comes from non-renewable sources. This not only causes serious environmental damage to extract from t…
 
Welcome to another episode of “Making Friends With…” - a special series where the Tech for Good Live team sit down for an in-depth interview with someone who is doing exceptional work in the tech industry. In this episode, Sam Milsom is talking data and privacy with Anouk Ruhaak, a Mozilla Fellow working on data governance models & data trusts. You…
 
On this week's show we’re talking about just how effective the labelling of former president – and future prison inmate – Donald Trump’s social media posts has become by Facebook and Twitter. We discuss MacOS privacy and look at a study on the mental health benefits of gaming. If there’s a comments section to that study though, I wouldn’t recommend…
 
Most start-ups fail. Many that don’t fail still don’t have spectacular results. Chris Bryson, however, defied the odds by founding and running a company that was so successful Instacart acquired it for a reported $65 million. Rather than retiring to a tropical beach with regular daiquiri service, Chris charted a different course for his new life. I…
 
Welcome to yet another episode of the Tech for Good Live podcast. This time we’re talking about how fossil fuels just aren’t that hot any more. It’s all about them renewables, y’know.

The Leadership Conference's own Vanessa Gonzalez hits us with her Hot Takes.…
 
Welcome to yet another episode of the Tech for Good Live podcast. Nothing can stop us. Not the pandemic, not the deep sense of shame we feel at the end of every episode, and not even that online petition that Bex's mum started. Nothing! In this show we're talking about volunteering! We're talking about free school meals! And – just to mix things up…
 
Meat from a cow who’s eaten an entirely grass-based diet is typically called “grass-fed meat.” So when you’re making plant-based meat with wood as your feedstock, is it called “wood-fed meat”? No matter what you call it, Arbiom has raised about $30 million to produce it. Arbiom CEO Marc Chevrel is taking wood and subjecting it to a yeast-based ferm…
 
Welcome to the Tech for Good Live podcast! It’s a podcast all about technology being used for good. If you’d figured that out already… well… that’s what they call in the biz “good branding”. In this episode we’re talking about Facebook and democracy. We look at some COVID data which is apparently beautifully presented. That seems like the priority …
 
The US election is upon us, and since today’s already going to be a complete-nightmare from which we may never awake, we figured... what’s the harm in adding to the horror, by doing a live recording. In this election special we’ll be talking about political facebook adverts. We’ll be talking about bias accusations against social media. We’ll be tal…
 
This is of course a historic election for many reasons, one of them being that there’s very high concern about how the votes will be counted. We’re just days away from the final day to vote and we’ve got news stories about the Russians and Iranians gaining access to certain voter records in the US — it’s crazy! One need look no further than 20 year…

Everything is on fire as local lockdowns are declared. Tech bros are being tech bros on Twitter again, and the US political system is dying in real time before our very eyes. So, not much has changed since March. Don’t despair though, because what better way to bring some joy and delight into your otherwise dreary day, than listen to us prattle on …
 
It's October so it's officially the start of spooky season. All of the folks on the podcast today are based in the US so it's been the countdown to Halloween for us since April. Gotta love that American capitalism. But scary definitely is the theme of this week's podcast as we'll be discussing the rise of anti masker groups on Facebook, the battle …
 
Welcome to a brand new season of the Tech for Good Live Podcast! We’ve been doing this for over 4 years now! Clearly there is no god. We’re talking about the Ice Bucket Challenge. Remember that?

For the last four years we’ve been talking about how tech can be used to make the world a better place. How’s that working out? Ah.

Think about how many plants there are: hundreds of thousands of different species. Yet when you look at plant-based meats, nearly all are made of one or more of just three of those plant species: soy, wheat, and pea. And there’s good reason for it: those plants are relatively cheap and plentiful, they taste good, and they function quite well as alt…

Because we’re here to talk to you about technology being used for social good. In this episode we’re talking about how an algorithm has screwed over loads of young people awaiting their exam r…
 
Think about how much metal you use in your life. Your phone. Your canned drinks. Your car. Well, for every ounce of metal in our lives, there are several ounces of often-toxic sludge left behind from the extraction process at the mine. In other words, in a car there might be a ton of aluminum, and to get that aluminum for that one car, there’s enou…

We’ve not been recording for a few weeks so let’s just quickly check to see how the world is going: Ok, the world is still ravaged by the global pandemic.
