Hello and welcome to yet another, in a seemingly endless stream of Tech for Good Live podcasts. It’s a show where a bunch of friends get together and talk about how to use technology to have a positive social impact.
In this episode we’re talking about how you can’t trust anything you see on Instagram, especially if someone is telling you they’re going to plant a tree.
We discuss the extraordinary demand that’s going to be placed on charity services this winter. And we chat about a new digital project to help support people with “atypical” speech.
This week’s topics:
Stat of the week
Charity news of the week
Tough days ahead for charities?
Tech news of the week
An actually great project from Google to help people with atypical speech

Thanks to podcast.co for hosting our podcast.
Also, please don't forget this podcast is run by volunteers and we survive on sponsorships and donations. Right now one of our primary goals is to make sure all of our podcast episodes are accessible by making sure EVERY episode is transcribed. Sadly this costs money and we desperately need your help to make this become a reality! So if you've ever tuned into one of our podcasts or attended one of our events please consider chipping in the price of a cup of coffee.
