2022 – A Year in Review

It’s been another eventful year on the Connected Places Podcast and we’ve got a lot to look back on as 2022 draws to a close!

In this episode we revisit some of the stories we’ve featured on the show this year, and the fascinating guests we’ve been able to have on.  

We hear from two well-known TV personalities here in Britain – the BBC’s former Science Editor, David Shukman and one of Britain’s most well-known rail enthusiasts of Great Railway Journeys fame, Michael Portillo.  

We return to the world’s 4th largest city – Sao Paulo, Brazil – where a UK and a Brazilian company have teamed up to tackle the effects of climate change in the city’s water supply. 

And there’s the inspiring story of the innovators who are using gaming technology and artificial intelligence to make public transport more accessible for people with disabilities.
