Jackson Hosking is a tech enthusiast from Wiltshire, England. When he’s not designing the latest 3D models or building a computer (which he has done) he’s either swimming in a river, watching football or finding out about (and reporting on!) the tech latest gadgets. He won’t hear a bad word said about Manchester United. And he’s not too bad behind the wheel of a boat, either.
Hear about autumn festivals around the world from Diwali, Hungry Ghost, Day of the Dead, Guy Fawkes and more!
