Off the back of the Guardian Voice Lab project, as well as doing some development work on a forthcoming series due in the autumn, I had the opportunity to produce Politics Weekly for the month of May.
Here are a couple of highlight episodes for me, from the four-week stint:
This episode was recorded as the Gavin Williamson drama was onfolding, so the script shifted considerably between being written on the Wednesday, and the recording on the Thursday.
And this episode was hosted by Jonathan Freedland, and he displayed a masterful ability to host and steer the debate.
At the end of the month I'll be speaking at the Music And Communities Conference 4 in Bucharest, for Black Rhino alongside Orpheu de Jong, from Amsterdam's Red Light Radio. It will be my first time in Romania, so very much looking forward to it! Our fourth conference...read more

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.read more

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!read more

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...read more
