Stories of Impact Podcast Season 3

Our moral reasoning needs to infiltrate some of these discussions of technology to be able to understand what is really in the common good. - Dominic Burbidge

The notion of citizenship is challenging, especially in a digital age. How can we listen to people we don’t agree with? How do we rebuild trust in an era of fake news?

Join us as we discuss these vital questions.
