My podcast Government Vs The Robots explores how technology will affect politics in the future. Launched in 2016 with a frontpage slot on Apple’s itunes platform the show has been covered by Politico and the I newspaper, generating over 50,000 listens in more than 100 countries. 


Guests have included politicians, activists, journalists and academics from India, Kenya, Ireland, the US and the UK. Together they have dived deep into the nature of misinformation, the shortcomings of social media companies, the risks of surveillance technology and the opportunities of data-driven decision making. Special episodes have been recorded at SXSW in Austin, Texas and the Data for Development festival in Bristol, UK.

I love having the opportunity to learn about and from some of the leading thinkers in digital policy.   


I made my first podcast at the Overseas Development Institute where we compiled voices from around the world including former heads of state like Helen Clarke and Mary Robinson, nobel prize winners like Joseph Stiglitz and young people living in Zaatari refugee camp. 


Later, at the Tony Blair Africa Governance Initiative (AGI) I presented and produced a series of podcasts recorded in Sub-Saharan Africa on topics as varied as education, rice farming and effective government. Guests included several government ministers, market traders, schoolteachers and AGI staff. 

I produced a bespoke series of podcasts for the Omidyar funded #GoodID project which explored the challenges and opportunities of digital identity with guests from Google, the World Economic Forum, Yoti and the London School of Economics.
