The Good Robot

Dr Kerry Mackereth and Dr Eleanor Drage

Join Dr Eleanor Drage and Dr Kerry Mackereth as they ask the experts: what is good technology? Is ‘good’ technology even possible? And how can feminism help us work towards it? Each week, they invite scholars, industry practitioners, activists, and more to provide their unique perspective on what feminism can bring to the tech industry and the way that we think about technology. With each conversation, The Good Robot asks how feminism can provide new perspectives on technology’s biggest problems.
