LEARNING FROM THE EXPERTS SERIES – Jack Waley-Cohen, Co-Founder of what3words.

The imprecision of our current address system which, for the record, involves 34 Victoria Roads in London and 4 billion people undocumented on the map has caused a lot of harm to the economy and people’s emotions. Thankfully, people like Jack Waley-Cohen (along with his co-founders) exist. Tune in to hear about what3words’ elegant solution to ensure people never get lost again (which is already being used by 1000 organisations including Airbnb, Lonely Planet, Jaguar and the United Nations)!

Thank you to Julia Reid for producing this episode and many thanks to Rho Mezon and Leo Marley for sharing their music “In the Mist” and "talktank tune".
