I’m currently producing the Technology Intelligence podcast series for The Telegraph. I’m making 6 episodes, with delivery deadlines every fortnight. For each episode we focus on a different sector which is being disrupted by technology, and speak with 3 entrepreneurs and an academic. By the end of the episode, the aim is for the audience to get an idea of how we got to where we are today, what innovations are steering today’s industry, and where all this might lead in the future.
It’s been fascinating to learn more about how this 100 year old industry is adjusting (or not) to change, whether that’s reticence to move away from the internal combustion engine (and towards renewal energy sources such as batteries and super-capacitors) or the established companies’ willingness to embrace alternative models of ownership. As in recent years we’ve become more accustomed to renting/subscribing to services and thus less willing to make upfront investments, many start ups are looking to develop the Netfix or Spotify model, but for your transportation needs. This could be seen as threatening the fundamental assumption of the auto industry; that cars need to be bought, and built-in obsolescence etc allows the industry to keep on selling and selling!
And of course, we also look at one of the most fundamental disrupters impacting the industry right now, the arrive of driverless cars/autonomous vehicles.
Thanks very much to all our contributors:
Jim Heathcote – Superdielectrics (supercapacitors)
Hugo Spowers – Riversimple (Hydrogen)
Felix Leuschner – Drover (Mobility As a Service)
Paul Newman – Oxbotica (Autonomous Vehicles)
Glenn Lyons – Mott MacDonald Professor of Future Mobility
Beate Kubitz – TravelSpirit Foundation Director of Policy and Communications
Episode 3 looks at the future of work.
Here's a live performance from Kojey Radical's appearance on Kate Hutchison's Worldwide FM show in August 2017. It was filmed on my Sony A7s with a 24-105mm lens on a shoulder rig, and colour graded with Film...
Last summer I was asked by Rob Alderson to talk at the Glug x WeTransfer 'Passion Projects' event in Shoreditch. It was a good opportunity to consolidate my thoughts on the launch of the station, and the first year of running Worldwide FM, as well as articulating the...
A few weeks back, researching people for Strrr TV, I was reminded of the photographer Nadav Kander. I first came across his work when a former girlfriend brought me to see his show 'Yangtze, The Long River' back in 2010. By chance, early this year I walked by Flowers...
In November, for the 40th anniversary of NASA’s Golden Record project, I produced the music section for WeTransfer’s A Message From Earth.
The brief was wonderfully broad; programming, producing and delivering a music section which attempts to reflect the diversity of music on planet earth, and explore the experience of musicians today.
Since finishing at Mistral Productions, I've linked up with Daniel Brandt and the Berlin team at Strrr TV, working as their UK editor. It's been a lot of fun so far, allowing me to use my audio and video production background, whilst getting to research, contact and...
I'm late to the party as it came out in 2016, but here's a short documentary about Bronx artist, Princess Nokia, made by Orian Barki. Good to see Wiki making an appearance!
Whilst doing some research for future potential Strrr TV guests, I'd ended up on the Studio Olafur Eliasson website. Olafur Eliasson is an Icelandic-Danish artist known for sculptures and large-scale installation art employing elemental materials such as light, water,...
A few weeks back I came across the work of Taz Tron Delix, a London-based director. His work with JD. Reid, Novelist and Oscar #Worldpeace is great. He's got a piece for Adidas out right now as well. Having researched his stuff, I then bumped into him in the pub the...
