Given how important tech is to so much economics, politics, and social change, should we even have a separate tech section in newspapers? The danger is that tech sections just get filled with hype: with self-narratives originating from the companies developing those technologies.

In this episode, I chat to freelance tech journalist and author Gemma Milne.
