Play Episode

Amanda Kirby is a systems engineer and the research director of K Sharp.  Whilst somewhat of a captive interviewee, she details her career path, and what drove her to engage in a traditionally male dominated workspace.  

We then discuss how the internet has influenced the lockdown, with both the positive use of various tools that have enabled community activity, and the negatives of conspiracy theories and cyber crime.
