The DesignSpark Podcast

S1 E4 - Navigation: “GPS would make the Wizard of Oz boring”

September 23, 2018

Dr Lucy Rogers is joined by comedians Bec Hill and Harriet Braine for the History Makers podcast, where they explore modern technology and the people throughout history who have made it all possible.

In episode four, the trio discusses whether navigation technology is our salvation or damnation. Dr Lucy guides us through the subject of navigation, “robot” Harriet uses her databanks to bring a maker from history to life and Bec locates the nearest exit in case of emergency.

So set your ears to receive and your mind to blown for History Makers!
