A climate emergency has been all over the news recently. We talk about the public state of anxiety in the face of climate change and we discuss how our lives might need to change in response to this threat.
We travel to the northwest of England to meet Dave and Anne Carlos, co-founders of the West Fleetwood Computer Clinic. Set up by the Emmanuel Church, this Computer Clinic serves the community by lowering people’s barriers to technology, while making devices last for longer.
We learn from Chloe Fayole from ECOS about the overlooked but fascinating world of product standards, and how they affect our right to repair our devices.
E-waste doesn’t just exist on earth, it exists in orbit too – and we’ve created loads in the past couple of decades. We interview Luisa Innocenti from the European Space Agency (ESA) to learn about their Clean Space initiative.
It’s Space Month at Restart Radio. We talk to Jessika Luth Richter, a circular economy researcher at Lund University in Sweden, and we learn about the relationship between materials and space, including the ‘iridium anomaly’.

Tongue-in-cheek, we talk about the upcoming Brexit and the potential of indoor growing to feed us. We are joined by Ande Gregson, founder of Greenlab, and by Halima Koundi, Restart Volunteer Coordinator.
