A weekly talk show by The Restart Project, plus a monthly documentary series produced by brilliant podcaster Dave Pickering, based on fixing triumphs, heartbreaks and wisdom shared at our community repair events – called Restart Parties – here in London.
We go into real depth about good and bad design, obstacles to repair of electronics, emotional aspects of ownership, environmentally irresponsible business models, and the “end of life” of our gadgets.
This podcast is for you if you'd like to fix your relationship with electronics. Let’s rethink, restart.
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 wants to serve the community by lowering people's barriers to technology,
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.
The design of technology has deep consequences for our use of products and services. We interview Alison Powell, Assistant Professor at LSE, and we discuss links between design, innovation and our right to repair.
After much celebration and fanfare about the new European regulations guaranteeing some "right to repair" for consumers, we needed to chat with Steve the Spindoctor. Our interview with Steve feels like a tour of terrible caveats.
We are moved by the tenacity of Jane, who is the 'inventor, founder and fixer in Chief” at Sugru, the mouldable glue company. We interview her about design within the throwaway culture and the role and growth of the repair movement.
