This episode was brought to you by https://www.thisisdoing.com - learn new skills in Design & Innovation via live online classrooms with the worlds best trainers

Today on the show, we have Aral Balkan - a cyber rights activist, who is on a mission to spread the word about ethical alternatives to surveillance capitalism. A system that the tech giants of Silicon Valley are using and abusing for their gain. We chat about lots of things such as what we can do about this, should we be worried - and what does the future look like as a result of these organisations gaining more and more control of not only the markets but us, as people -

I really enjoyed speaking with Aral and loved the parts where he speaks about Design being treated like ‘Decoration’ in organisations who have abuse centred within their business models. Aral has some really strong points of view around what to do if you work in organisations like this -
