The Restart Project hosts a different kind of gadget show, encouraging people to use their electronics longer in order to prevent waste, save money, and be happier.
Restart Radio airs live every Tuesday at 1:30pm on London’s best indie radio station, Resonance 104.4 FM (also on DAB).
Our theme music is made with lasers, photovoltaic cells, and repurposed computer parts, a collaboration between Opto Noise and Cassini Sound.
As summer draws to a close, we think about the role of tech in our experience of the ‘Great Outdoors’.

Today, we talk to Rob Kerr from Lovefone – an independent mobile repair store – about the relationship between manufacturers and repairers.
This month, to celebrate the Restart’s 5th birthday, we’re looking back on some of our favourite moments from past podcast episodes and Restart Parties.
Skills don’t become obsolete the same way gadgets do. Today we discuss what different generations have to teach each other about repair.
With London’s population expected to reach 11 million by 2015 and local recycling rates in decline, we need solutions for increasing amounts of waste.
