Where is your old laptop? E-waste in Africa.

Agbogbloshie is one of the largest e-waste dumpsites in the world, providing an income to thousands of people in the area. However, workers dealing with e-waste face dangerous working conditions. E-waste is just one example of the systemic challenges of our time with no easy solution. In this episode, Reniera O'Donnell and Sarah O'Carroll discuss with our guests, Joseph Awuah-Darko and Joshua Palfreman, some of the steps being taken to help ensure economic prosperity and better conditions for the people directly affected.
