On 18th September 2018 I was guest editor on BBC 5 Live’s Afternoon Edition, presented by Nihal Arthanayake.

I made a follow up appearance on Nihal’s show on BBC Radio 5 Live on 22nd May 2019 as an update to my interview in September 2018. It coincided with my #ShowUs image being on display in Piccadilly Circus.

Helena Traill, a visual storyteller invited me on to her 100+ podcast to talk about my story in April 2020. I am one of the one hundred people who feature in her 100 stories book.

The podcast is the next step and will feature people who aren’t in the big – moving the communication further forward. Listen to my episode here.
