Episode Description

In the 80’s a hero known as Al Gore produced one of the greatest inventions of all time..the internet. Ok well maybe that’s just a comment quoted out of context that comedians at the time found hilarious and some of us still do. Today, though, Elon Musk is doing something with the internet early users like myself would never have thought possible. What is Starlink and what is the point? Join hosts Shanti and Danny as we discuss the introduction of Starlink, what makes it so impressive, and what it may mean for our future.
