TG14: Changing Gippsland one conversation at a time (with Euan Semple)

In this episode, James spoke with Euan Semple during his brief jaunt to Gippsland. Euan is where zen and social media intersect. In a world where public discussions seem increasingly polarised and rage-filled, Euan suggests a more humble, gentle and mindful use of digital communications technologies. He brings a healthy dose of humanity back to the digital realm with his message: the game-changers aren't in connecting things, but in connecting people.
