A Silicon Republic podcast with The HeadStuff Podcast Network

Get completely ready for an all-new podcast from Silicon Republic casting a crucial eye on know-how and talking to professionals across Ireland.

Silicon Republic has teamed up with The HeadStuff Podcast Network to provide you a podcast examining the excellent, the negative and the in-involving elements of technology.

For Tech’s Sake launches in Oct, blasting off with a aim on room-tech. This initial episode explores the tech it normally takes to see the stars, and asks why it matters. The podcast also will take a look into deep place with two Irish experts who worked on the James Webb House Telescope, Prof Tom Ray and Dr Patrick Kavanagh.


Through the collection, For Tech’s Sake hosts Elaine Burke and Jenny Darmody will issue tech’s utilizes and abuses, on the lookout below the hood of both of those day to day and emerging technologies with a critical eye.

“Some technologists would like you to believe that that tech is likely to conserve us all. Other folks want to warn you to assume that it is likely to ruin our lives,” reported Burke, editor of Silicon Republic. “The truth is a spectrum in between these extremes, and we hope to give folks a prism by means of which they can see that and make up their individual minds.”

All over the collection, For Tech’s Sake will take on some of tech’s hottest topics, from digital transformation and sentient AI, to wellness-tech and even tech-facilitated abuse.

“We just take a aspect-eye watch of tech, not evangelising or demonising it, but definitely throwing a bit of shade when it is deserved,” reported Darmody, deputy editor at Silicon Republic.

If you’ve at any time wondered if tech is staying used to spy on you, what would make a Fitbit tick, or why billionaires are so eager to be shot into place, this is the podcast for you.
