    826: Winners

    826: Winners

    This week we are saying congratulations to Dublin-based Grafton Architects who have won the 2020 Pritzker prize, the first two women to share what is regarded internationally as architecture’s highest honour.
    Grafton Architects caught our attention a long time ago as they have some great ideas on how to make our world low-carbon at street level.  With Extinction Rebellion, increases in carbon tax, and the Green Party playing a significant part in our new government, we thought this  would be a great opportunity to replay our interview from last year with founder Yvonne Farrell, who spoke to our editor Niall Kitson.

Best Irish tech podcast?

One of the best Irish tech podcasts. Would be great if longer.

Amiga Ireland ,

Excellent podcast

Great to have a local source on such a globalized industry. This is the best tech podcast in Ireland and competes very well with those from USA & Britain.

(apple podcast app) Keep it up

Well it looks like apple listened to you Dusty, they have (finally) made a designated app specifically for podcats and although still a little bit rough (radio/stations function doesn't really work just yet) it is fab. Maybe mention it in next podcast as an alternate to iTunes.
.......
this is a terrific podcast- I much enjoy the banter between dusty and neil as well as catching up on all the tech gossip. Please continue to make these excellent and very enjoyeable podcasts. P.S I don't mind the slightly biased nature of this podcast but please don't be so quick to dismiss the glory of Apple
