How to shape technology (and society) with equity and inclusion in mind, with Tracey Spicer


Our featured episode this month features Tracey Spicer, award winning journalist, author, and social justice advocate who begins this episode with a story from her own life: her son, after watching an episode of South Park, declared “Mum, I want a robot slave.” This declaration prompted Tracey to begin a seven-year journey exploring how society shapes the technology we surround ourselves with, and how technology in turn shapes us. Her findings are documented in her latest book, Man-Made, which was published by Simon & Schuster earlier this year. Tune in to hear more about Tracey’s latest book, her work as a journalist and social justice advocate, how technology is changing journalism, life as a working parent, and so much more.
