Last month, on the invitation of Croydon Council, we worked with 15-20 asylum-seeking youth in a summer school. We created a short, 9-session curriculum based on the requests of the young people themselves. Students upgraded and earned their own laptop.
This summer, we asked Restart Radio listeners to share their thoughts on our podcast. Around 2.6% of you who listen monthly took our radio survey. In this post, we review who listens, how they listen, how they (would) engage further and summary of your suggestions.
We call volunteers who share their repair skills Restarters.
Steve is a life-long tinkerer and fixer, who loves the “Marie Kondo” repairs the best — the ones that spark joy. He enjoys repurposing electronics with his kids, cycling and running. He still remembers his first repair – a Walkman – at age 10.
