    Welcome to Season 7 of HyperTalks! After taking over the mantle from the previous team, we thought we'd kick off strong with a discussion that we consider to be highly relevant in today's digital world. On this episode our hosts Angela and Liam had the privilege to discuss the topic of Ethical Design with Kat Zhou, Product Designer at Spotify and Creator of Design Ethically. The result was a fascinating conversation that touched on many things, including screen addiction, passive aggressive owls, and adorable huskies. Big thanks to Kat for setting the bar for this season high with a laugh-filled and thoughtful episode!Kat's website, filled with useful links and an agenda for upcoming events:, until the next time!
