This week! We’re going through our open tabs and will be discussing Australia’s Socialist Future, Ignoring the Design Industry, and Instagram Husbands.
Helping us bring some outside perspective today is our special guest Garry Williams.
Garry Williams leads activation partnerships for the forthcoming University of Melbourne innovation precinct Melbourne Connect and the Melbourne node of the global Science Gallery network.
He’s the founder of ALTS Projects, a collective (on the way!) focussed on unconventional career paths and projects that consume us, resulting in curation of content and events including Melbourne Tech, FuckUp Nights and various tech, culture and community initiatives.
Remember! We are now an ENHANCED podcast. That's right - If you listen to our podcast in Overcast or Pocket Casts, or Castro, you can get super special images, links, and chapter breaks in your player while you listen.
