On TV, Radio and online

As well as being a geek songstress and comedian, I present funny and factual science shows for TV and radio. Watch my latest showreel here.

You can hear Festival of the Spoken Nerd on BBC Radio 4 in our new radio comedy series “Domestic Science” from July 2016 – and get involved in doing some science from the comfort of your own home.

Recent appearances on the small screen include BBC Two Coast, explaining the physics of G-force whilst riding the UK’s tallest rollercoaster; Discussing pandas, axolotls and star-nosed moles on BBC Two Newsnight; Unlocking the physics of internet videos on four series of Outrageous Acts of Science for Discovery Channel; and performing stand-up and songs in front of a live audience in four episodes of Stewart Lee’s Alternative Comedy Experience for Comedy Central.

You might also have heard me on BBC Radio 3 for Comic Relief, Radio 4 on Infinite Monkey Cage, 5Live as a guest expert on Bacon’s Theory, 6Music, World Service, LBC and as a guest on the Guardian’s Science Weekly podcast.

If you’d like to talk about your TV or radio project, please get in touch.
