Refugees flee Ukraine as bombardment continues; food rescue apps aim to save edible food from landfill; and what happens when the technology behind a ‘bionic eye’ becomes obsolete?
Matt Galloway is in Poland to report on the growing refugee crisis, as Ukrainians flee Russia’s invasion and bombardment. He tells guest host Duncan McCue what he’s seen so far. We also talk with Oleksiy Sorokin, the political editor and chief operating officer of the Kyiv Independent.
Then, food rescue apps aim to redistribute edible food that would otherwise end up in landfills. We talk about how it works and why it’s good for the environment, with Lori Nikkel, CEO of Second Harvest, Canada's largest food rescue organization.
And in recent years, some people with visual impairments have regained some sight with the help of a “bionic eye.” But now, the company behind the implants have stopped supporting the technology. We hear how that’s left some people in the dark, from Eliza Strickland, senior editor at the tech publication IEEE Spectrum; and Jennifer Chandler, a professor of law at the University of Ottawa’s Centre for Health Law, Policy and Ethics.
