I present Radio 4's 'The Male Room', a late-night show that creates space for the discussions men don't often have on-air. We've featured frank conversations about inadequacy, fatherhood, dating and many other male hang-ups.

The first series ran in December 2016, with guests including an anxious firefighter, a policeman with PTSD, and conversations about heroism and anger. You can listen again here. The second series, which will include a discussion about harassment and male sexuality following the revelations regarding Harvey Weinstein, will be broadcast in February 2018. 

Also on Radio 4, I have co-hosted the two-part documentary 'Podcasting: The First Ten Years' with Helen Zaltzman.

The show, which aired in April 2014, commemorated the tenth anniversary of the word 'podcast' being coined by Ben Hammersley. It was produced by Trevor Dann and can be heard here.

In Episode One, we examine how the podcasting originated in the world of geeks and nerds before finding mainstream success thanks to the likes of Ricky Gervais. Our interviewees include Adam Curry, Marc Maron, Betty In The Sky With A Suitcase, Pete Donaldson and Grammar Girl.

In Episode Two, we look at how podcasters have launched themselves from the platform of online downloadable radio to carve media careers and even make six figure revenues. Our interviewees include Keith and the Girl, Richard Herring, Roman Mars, John Oliver and Andy Zaltzman.

Elsewhere on Radio 4, I introduce Four Thought, and have contributed to Quote, Unquote; You And Yours; Front Row and What's So Funny?
