Technology gets a bad rap. This is because it's used to do a lot of really, really crappy stuff. However, at Tech for Good Live we believe it can be used to have a positive impact on the world.
For 3 years, we've been creating events and podcasts, and we think we have a good formula now. Our output is professional and our team includes some senior people within the world of tech for good. We've also got content enthusiasts galore. We try to make fun, engaging and useful content. We've had guests on including Mike Monteiro, Sara Wachter-Boettcher, Mary Mazzio and Dr Sue Black.
"Given the worldwide ‘podscape’ of inane babble, received wisdom and white noise, this stands out: Genuine voices, open-minded not ego-driven, often listenable throughout and occasionally downright compelling.."

We've been operating on favours, lunch hours and late nights. (Thanks everyone!!!) We'd love to have some cash to start funding what we do so we can keep going (volunteer fatigue is a real thing!) and improve what we do and reach more people.
These funds will help us to create the rest of 2019's events and podcasts.
- (almost) weekly news podcasts with guests who are top of their game from the charity, design and tech sectors. We'll look at what's happened this week in the world of tech for good. We break it down. Critique it and provide thoughts on how to improve.
- 'Making Friends with' series where we speak one on one with some influential types. Previous guests have included user researcher Steve Portigal, Richard Wilson from the campaign 'Stop Funding Hate', and acclaimed author Laura Klein.
- Special series, such as 'Live from Camp Digital' where we record from the Camp Digital Conference in Manchester, speaking to guests like the wonderful Cennydd Bowles. And a couple of documentary series looking at Mental Health in the tech sector and the Circular Economy.
- Monthly events live from Manchester looking at topics such as digital activism, regulation and encryption.
