    Episode 24: Technology and Society

    We sit down with Max-Beverton Palmer, Head of Tech and Society at Tony Blair Institute for Global Change, to discuss his work helping policy-makers address challenges around the world.

Quality food for thought

I enjoy the topics and hard conversations of this podcast, even if I don’t come to the same conclusions. Worth listening to.
