They are experts in immigration and employment law and provide a fantastic overview of the system and how it affects both companies and individuals. In the second half of the show, Mel and Chris go through some of the city’s digital sector highlights from the last month or so. That includes info on the Channel 4 bid, IoT Tribe North’s accelerator programme, the Urban Flows Observatory competition, and a whole host of news and success stories from Sheffield companies. Finally, I need to say something about the sound quality. It’s not quite as it should be for some irritating technical reasons, but once you get used to it, you should be all right. Hopefully, the content makes up for it! Notes and links Every episode comes with a list of links to all of the various people, companies and topics that we reference.
