For most people, the word “doula” is associated with the beginning of life. But for Alua Arthur, a certified Death Doula, it refers to anyone who helps with a transition. Since 2013, she’s helped many people transition through the end of life.

We have a responsibility to protect our privacy in the digital age. Now, I’m not excusing the role of institutions in this human rights issue, but while they navigate the rocky landscape thrown up by the digital world, we need to get real about how to live responsibly with our data.

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.

Tomorrow’s episode of The Guardian’s investigation of privacy in the digital age sees me trying to take back control after information is released into the wild – without prior consent or knowledge.

We have a cracking lineup of six sterling episodes in the Digital Human stable coming atcha every Monday at 4:30pm UK from 12 October!
This series, we’re looking deeper at the things that are too human to be digital… but somehow are. Want revenge? Trying to solve a mystery? The Cartesian Split is under the microscope, or perhaps that’s just our imagination. And there’s also a special programme for Halloween to creep you out just when you think it’s safe to go online.

Several years ago, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg famously announced, “Privacy is Dead!”. The internet age, he said, has shifted social norms. We no longer care about protecting our identities. And it doesn’t matter if we do, because it’s too late to do anything about that, right?

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?
