Podcasting

I have been involved with about a billion podcasts.

The most well-known is comedy podcast Answer me This!:

Just so you know, it has rude words and racy content. We’ve been running since 2007 and have won two Sony awards and has tens of thousands of regular listeners, making us one of the most successful independent podcasts in the UK.

Song by Song podcast discusses every Tom Waits song in chronological order:

In 2007 I started The Sound of The Ladies podcast, where I record and release a song every month; it ran until last summer.

Around the same time I had a spell engineering the Bright Club Podcast with Steve Cross, and wrote the theme song for it. Bright Club Podcast span out from the Bright Club live events, and featured a comedian asking academics about their areas of expertise.

In 2011, I started Global Lab with Steven Gray. I wrote the theme tune too. Global Lab is themed around the work that CASA is interested in – global complexity, technology in the urban realm, cities, and people. The format is currently based on interviews with academics and experts in the field, but it’s an interesting testbed for new ideas and collaborations.

In summer 2012, I started Brain Train with Alice Bell. I wrote the theme tune. Brain Train was inspired by Bright Club and Chain Reaction, but precipitated by a twitter conversation. In it, an expert asks someone something they’ve always wanted to know about a subject well outside their comfort zone. Next episode, the expert becomes the novice and finds out all about something they know nothing about. The show continued with Rachel Souhami until 2016.

I’ve created music for the aforementioned shows, as well as for The Allusionist, The Beef and Dairy Network, Pappy’s Flatshare Slamdown, the Glamour UK podcast, Why are Computers, and Sound Women, and had tiny cameos on Jordan, Jesse Go! and Mortified.
