Hello Hackney podcast,
Friday 20 July, 2 to 4 pm
Our VIP guest will be Belén Barros, who is interested in your stories about old and new technology.
She wants to hear about your radios, your washing machines, your vacuum cleaners, your cameras, your computers, your phones and any other gadgets you’ve ever had, bought or built.
So we could have a conversation about familiar technology that is considered obsolete even though it works, and replacement technology that requires adaptation to an unfamiliar and unsettling way of life (eg- smartphones instead of landline phones).
Or perhaps you could bring a gadget to make your point (I’m still using a kitchen blender that I bought more than 40 years ago; it looks odd, but it works perfectly).

Please bring your voice to Whitmore Community Centre on Friday afternoon.
We are editing this episode now.
