We’ve seen Facebook and Google removing ads, constant Data Protection beaches and now there’s GDPR coming very, very soon. So who better to have in the tortoise shack than journalist and podcaster with Irish Tech News and Phoenix Magazine, Ronan Leonard, aka The Tec Dr to talk us through it all.
Wading through the mire, Ronan outlines simple steps to get GDPR compliant and the things we can all do to protect our personal data.

Events at the Lidl in Fortunestown Lane, Jobstown, Tallaght gave a green light to the hard right(government TD’s included) to come out and smear an entire working class community over the actions of a few. So we were delighted to be joined in the tortoise shack by Solidarity TD for Dublin South West Paul Murphy, to discuss tackling class warfare, where to next for the Water Charges movement and what a real Left alternative might look like.
