About the Show
From Sam Maule and 11:FS, Connection Interrupted is a weekly show exploring lives that were disrupted - or had their connections interrupted - pivoted, or rerouted through fault or design, the obstacles they had to overcome to get to where they are now - and the role that technology played in helping them reach it.
Each week we’ll be speaking to people from all walks of life that have had their lives unexpectedly influenced, changed or completely re-written by technology.
Connection Interrupted is produced by 11:FS. Building banks for the future. Learn more at 11fs.com.
