|Pick of the day:|
|Hey Tom, just wanted to tell you about a new podcast from LeVar Burton called LeVar Burton Reads(https://art19.com/shows/levar-burton-reads). It's definitely a spiritual successor to Reading Rainbow and it's fantastic. Each week he reads a short story, doing voices and has great professional sound design. He says it's gonna be mostly sci-fi and fantasy but not always. Thanks for the great show from very hot and muggy Atlanta.|

|Hey Tom, Patrick and Roger,|
This is an interesting news story that came out recently. The United Nations is looking to use blockchain tech to provide a universal id system in the near future. This would be especially (nailed it) useful to refugees, giving them access to basic services such as healthcare etc in whichever country they may end up.
