Big data, dropping the ego, and other ramblings with an Irishman in Asia
Originally from County Kerri in Ireland Pádraig (Paddy) Flynn has been in Asia for more than 10 years, working in data analytics and technology in the advertising world. He's passionate about demystifying data and exploring how access to the right data sets can improve the way businesses perform. In this podcast we chat about the changes in the advertising landscape over the past few decades, how the future looks, and even parallels between fake news and the old style printing press - has it really changed that much or do we simply have new ways to spin our stories? The sketch I hold in the picture is Paddy's mock up of how  mass broadcasting & TV works - you hear us work on during the chat.

A World Free of Wildlife Trafficking and Human Slavery
Meet Steve Galster and Tim Redford - the leaders behind www.freeland.org, and business partners for the last 20+ years. The Freeland vision is "A World Free of Wildlife Trafficking and Human Slavery" with a mission to "Innovate, develop, and continually improve programs and tools that empower society to overcome organized crime and corruption to restore secure, resilient communities and ecosystems.” In a world where big business owns Government, and the rich vs poor extremities are ever increasing, this is no easy task. But Steve & Tim have an impressive long-term track record of success in this field. In this episode they discuss the work they do at Freeland, in particular some of the success they have had in helping restore (previously believed to be extinct) Tiger populations in Thailand - how the world of human trafficking operates, ways to identify illegal products, and what you can do. You can find out more about them at www.freeland.org.
