On our first episode for 2019, we tackle a serious topic. We leave behind poetry and gifs behind for now… Instead we ask: What are the ethics of volunteer labour in online education? Is Volunteer digital labour good or bad for education? On this topic more than most, we answer with a clear ‘YES’. We have been reading about ‘free digital labour’ and have been reflecting on its impact on education. This episode is more of a meandering inquiry than our usual conversations, as the issues are varied and complex; we talk about about many threads and repeatedly acknowledge our difficulties grasping the theory as well as the practice of volunteer labour online beyond a technological utopias.
