UNCHAINED BBCR4

Two government reports over the last 12 years have definitively concluded that short term custodial sentences for women aren’t working, but the number of women serving them in the UK is rising. I produced this documentary with my incredible friend, Brenda Birungi – AKA Poet Lady Unchained. We interviewed four women with experience of the […]

VENT

For all of 2020, I’m running VENT: a collaboration between VICE and Brent London Borough of Culture, 2020. We have 2 podcast streams, all co-produced with 16-20 year olds from Brent. Not gna lie, this is very close to my dream job. I get to co-produce podcasts with 16-20 year olds, about whatever they want. […]

SPACE KIDS CIC

Space Kids is a Community Interest Company I set up with my cousin last year. She is an artist and I’m a radio producer, and we’ve both been working with young people since we were teenagers ourselves. So we set up Space Kids – arts education for young people that gives them skills for them […]

BATS BBC R4

I produced a short documentary on the relationship between bats and grief for BBC Radio 4’s Short Cuts – Nature Documentaries episode. This was super special to me as it features my very good friend, talking about our very good friend who passed away in 2018. Grief can be an extremely alienating process, both for […]

SOMERSET HOUSE STUDIOS

4 femxle & non-binary artists from Somerset House’s Amplify Residency reflect on the role of technology inĀ digital art, electronic music, and beyond. This was a very fun show to produce. I spent a couple days running around the strange secret tunnels of Somerset House during this residency, recording interviews and live performances by these incredible […]

SERPENTINE PODCAST

I produced 3 seasons of The Serpentine Podcast: On Work, On General Ecology, and Guest, Ghost, Host: Machine! This is my favourite episode that I produced, from the General Ecology series: I took each series as an opportunity to evaluate what went well and what needed changing, to really refine the unique style of the […]

BOW DOWN PODCAST

I got to work with the amazing Jennifer Higgie from Frieze on her new podcast series: Bow Down. It profiles womxn in art history who have been overlooked. I co-produced the first season with Ant Adeane – this is my fave episode:

A MILE IN MY SHOES

I’ve had the privilege to sit down with three sound people, to produce stories for The Empathy Museum’s A Mile in My Shoes. Fee and Brian were part of a Brexit Special exhibition at the Mayor of London’s City Hall in September 2019, and Minoo was for a collaboration between Choose Love & Empathy Museum […]

WE ARE INCREDIBLE PRA

A three-part series for the Prison Radio Association’s National Prison Radio, on alternatives to custody for womxn in the UK, set in Brighton, Manchester and Gloucester, and presented by Brenda Birungi. Brenda and I travelled across the UK to three Women’s Centres to make this series for NPR. This series was to be broadcast within […]

EASTCAST

The only time I get in front of the mic is for EastCast – a live, bi-monthly radio show on Resonance FM about the arts, the culture and community in East London, which I present with my audio partner in crime, Katie Callin. Katie and I also founded EastCast Away – a quarterly audio open […]

NIGHT COUNCIL RADIO MUSEUM OF LONDON

I was part of a team that produced a 4 hour live radio broadcast all about London at night for the Museum of London, October 2018. I also sneaked in a lil pre-recorded series into the mix, where I spent many an evening sitting on night buses with people who work in London at night.

RADIO ASSEMBLY

I was part of a team of producers making both live and pre-recorded shows for Radio ASSEMBLY – a pop up radio station commissioned by Somerset House Studios. 48 hours straight hours of experimental music and great chat. Here are some of my show highlights:

RADIO THAMESMEAD

I really love opportunities to support other people to make radio who haven’t before. I was able to run group and one on one workshops to support Thamesmead residents to plan and make pre-recorded and live programmes for their new community radio station Radio Thamesmeade in collaboration with TACO. It was slick.

MEET ME AT THE ALBANY

I produced programme for Resonance FM & Now Then Podcast about The Albany’s Meet Me At programme: A day with poets and singers who are over 60s from Deptford.

NOW THEN

This is the first ever podcast I made – sharing the stories of people over 70 years old, told in their own words. I actually have 8 more episodes of this, sharing the stories of some truly amazing people that I haven’t had time to finish editing, so watch this space… In the meantime, you […]

SIGOHA

The way I got into audio was through oral history. It’s a way of democratising how certain histories are remembered. When I was living in Glasgow, I started the Settled in Glasgow Oral History Archive – it’s a collection of memories of Glaswegians who were born outside the UK. I also ended up co-curating an […]

THIS CAN HAPPEN

I produced a 5 part series for Mental Health Awareness Week for the organisation This Can Happen, platforming people working to change the face of mental health in the workplace. They are on this page but are unfortunately behind a paywall so you’re going to have to be pretty keen if you want to hear […]

ROUGH GUIDES PODCAST

I produced a couple episodes The Rough Guide to Everywhere: a travel podcast that takes you out of the guidebook and into the wild. Metaphorically speaking – I did not get to travel to any of these places but, you know, chatting about them on the phone is also fun.

RADIO WORK BEFORE I WAS A PRODUCER

Before I started producing things, I got to work on some really great radio programmes as a researcher and AP for BBC Radio 4, BBC Radio 3 and BBC World Service. Here’s a small list for your perusal: New Weird Britain The Alternative History of ArtĀ  Breakfast with the Disruptors Select / Copy / Paste […]

RIGHT TO RENT JCWI

I worked for a brief while at the Joint Council for the Welfare of Immigrants, who do amazing work. While I was there, I was already obsessed with audio, so I tried to make them a podcast raising awareness of discrimination caused by the Right to Rent Scheme.
