EPISODE 105: The Data Centre Takeover

With the greater Dublin area becoming the largest hub for data centres in Europe, this massive boom in huge industrial sites went unnoticed for a while, but is increasingly heating up. Literally. We’re joined by Dr Patrick Bresnihan of Maynooth University to talk about wtf is going on with data centres in Ireland, tech companies buying wind farms, and what data degrowth may mean in the future.

Plus, Andrea inspires with her new no-work-Sunday business plan, and Una reminisces about going out in gay bars with the Book of the Week.
