Poetry and Science – Archive of the Now

Discussion and performances by Dorothy Lehane, Eleanor Perry, Prof. Ellen Solomon and me, hosted by Sophie Mayer of Archive of the Now, on the topic of poetry and science.

A live radio show for the Science Museum’s Exponential Horn installation, broadcast by Resonance 104.4fm on 13th June 2014.

There’s a recording of this knocking around somewhere, and I’ll embed it if I can find it…

The Thread


I collaboratively produced and programmed two series of this radio show on Resonance FM.

The Thread is a free conversational space that goes beyond the university, a place where complex ideas can flourish in public dialogue. Created and produced by PhD students from the London Consortium, it brings artists, academics, amateurs and professionals together in wild and wide-ranging discussion. The Thread uses speech as a tool for research to open up new and unexpected angles: this is live radio thinking.

On 22nd March 2011, I presented a show about Camouflage featuring Patrick Wright, Sophie Nield and Synnove Fredericks. Follow the link to listen.

Interior Traces


A radio play, live performance and debate about the impact of brain imaging on society. A series of 6 episodes imagining the lives of two characters with different brain conditions had they lived in 1906, the present day, and 2030. Co-written with neuroscientist and science communicator Louise Whiteley, with music composed by Cheryl Frances-Hoad.
