We are seeing hints that electronics repair is spreading and proliferating in both primary and secondary school, in Europe and North America.
James has been tinkering from a very young age, honing his skills on dodgy cars and motorbike engines before moving to electrical devices. He organises Restart Parties in Hackney, North London, alongside the Hackney Fixers.
Restarters in London definitely earned a quiet Christmas holiday. As well as taking fixing activity to Parliament and the Greater London Assembly we ran events in libraries, community centres and church halls across 14 London boroughs, on all points of the compass.
The holidays can feel overwhelming, so we present over five hours of our favourite radio shows and podcasts, including geek, tinkerer, designer and academic guests that help put everything into new perspective.
