Description

Farmers have always been ready to jump into the dirt and fix their tools. But over the past few decades, tractors and other farm gadgets have complex software that’s hard to decode. The same has happened with our computers, phones, appliances and just about any other tech you can think of. In this episode, Kim dives into the nitty-gritty world of repair politics. Do we really own our tech if we can’t fix it? Are large manufacturers monopolizing the right to repair? Kim talks to Gay Gordon-Byrne, a consumer rights advocate at the heart of this debate, as well as a farmer on the front lines.
