Audio Producer

Matt Damon – KCRW

For the second year in a row, I teamed up with my fave Palaborator Arlie Adlington to compete in KCRW’s 24hr Radio Race. It is SUCH a joy to be a part of – it’s a really fun challenge to make a 4 minute radio piece in 24 hours, and then it’s so fun listening […]

No Ball Games – BBCR4

November 2021 marks the 100 year anniversary of Britain’s largest council estate: Becontree, in Barking and Dagenham, East London. Listen to No Ball Games. Beth Clayton and Steve Urquhart had the idea for a documentary marking the centenary that was presented by three people currently living in Becontree. They were looking for a producer who […]

NICK & WARREN TALK CARNAGE

This was a very dreamy job. I got to (virtually) hang out with Nick Cave and Warren Ellis, producing a conversation between them for the physical release of their new album: CARNAGE. I am a huge fan of Nick and Warren. They were both very funny and very nice to me, and it was a […]

UNCHAINED BBCR4

Listen to Unchained. 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 […]

BOLDFACE CIC

Boldface is a Community Interest Company I set up with my cousin – Izzy Yon.

The only time I get in front of the mic is for EastCast – a bi-monthly radio show on Resonance FM, which I present and produce with my audio partner in crime, Katie Callin. Every episode, we pick a theme, then invite anyone who wants to submit literally any audio they want as long as […]

RADIO RACE

From 6pm 13.06.20 to 6pm 14.06.20 I spent 24 hrs with my pal and collaborator Arlie Adlington racing to make 4 mins of radio for KCRW‘s Radio Race. The theme was time-warp and we decided to spend the night cycling round London searching for our future selves, and thinking about what being queer means for […]

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 […]

ALPHABET

I’m part of the team of Alphabet Radio: a pop up queer radio station started in lockdown.

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!

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.

SETTLED IN GLASGOW

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.
