I presented The Biggest Story In The World, the campaign’s 12-episode investigative podcast series. It was a only small part of the paper-wide climate change effort, which served as the final major project of outgoing editor Alan Rusbridger. Keep It In The Ground had a dual purpose: to get real action to keep fossil fuels in the ground, and to tell an old story in a new way.

As we advance inexorably towards the next series of BBC Radio 4’s award-winning science series (hurrah!), Digital Human, we march forward with more than 40 episodes in our arsenal. So yeah, if you’re new to the series, it might be difficult to know just where to start.

Hello world! In this series of BBC Radio 4’s Digital Human, we’ve gone a bit ethereal. The six episodes kicked off this week with Secrets – in which we discover whether social media is responsible for exposing a secret of my own past, kept hidden for 25 years.
Secret holders share why and how they have used the internet to disclose their most intimate or well kept secrets – how does a compulsion to confess in a public setting effect those who the secret is about? And can this audition of secrets online naturally lead to revealing them offline?

‘Engaging and insightful’: That’s how Miranda Sawyer described BBC Radio 4’s week-long series of 15 minute documentaries, Codes That Changed The World, in The Guardian’s review of the week’s radio. In the series, we talk about FORTRAN, COBOL, Basic, Java and ‘Babel’.

Guardian editor Alan Rusbridger has only a few months left in his post, and for his swan song at the end of what has been an extraordinary time at the helm, he’s decided to tackle The Biggest Story In the World: Climate Change.

Hey! I’m on the radio in 5 minutes!
The latest series of the award-winning BBC Radio 4 series Digital Human started when I was on the first part of leave, and we’re already at episode three of six. (I’m back to finish off the remaining three, and then disappearing again…)

Hidden Histories of the Information Age aired last week on BBC Radio 4. It was a five-part series about five of the objects on display at the new Information Age gallery at the Science Museum (yes, where the Queen sent her first tweet from), and it was an absolutely brilliant way to discover more about the social impact of the infrastructures of the many communication media that we take for granted today. As I say in the script, the objects in the exhibition represent cultural moments from the last 200 years – not just technological innovations.
