Phone-free spaces

Updated: Jan 17, 2023

Today’s podcast in conversation live from LA with Graham Dugoni. He’s American entrepreneur and founder of Yondr, the company that pioneered the concept of phone-free spaces. 

Born and raised in Portland, Oregon, Graham went on to earn a political science degree from Duke University in 2009. He has a longstanding interest in sociology and philosophy of technology, and this interest eventually inspired the creation of Yondr. 

Invented in 2014, Yondr uses a patented system of lockable phone pouches to create phone-free spaces for artists like Dave Chappelle, Jack White, and Madonna, as well as school districts around the world.
