On a special edition of the Castlebridge PodCast (Episode title: “Damn it Jim, I’m an Engineer, not a Doctor”), Daragh O Brien (not a doctor) and Katherine O’Keefe (not that kind of doctor) are joined by Phil Booth of MedConfidential, Pat Walshe (@PrivacyMatters on Twitter) and Ronan Lupton (Barrister, and @RonanLupton on Twitter) to talk about the ethical, practical, and legal issues that arise with some of the proposed uses for technology and data in response to the Covid-19 pandemic.

There’s a lot to unpack as we tease through some of the challenges, opportunities, and risks that need to be navigated in using the significantly enhanced capabilities of the modern information age in the current crisis.

It’s all about trust, trustworthiness, and taking t-shirt wearing techbros with a pinch of salt.

And Dr Michael J Ryan makes a guest appearance at the end.
