BBC World Service producer, London
I'm The World’s BBC producer in London. I joined in January 2013, having previously worked as a producer at BBC Radio 4’s Today Programme and BBC 2’s Newsnight.
I also make radio documentaries for the BBC, covering everything from suicides in India and music in Ghana to pro-life Christianity in Britain.
I occasionally venture into print- in the past The Sunday Times, the Independent and Timeout Mumbai have been kind enough to accept my scribblings.
My work has won prizes at the One World Media Awards, and the New York Festivals.
I'm also a founder of In The Dark- a non-profit devoted to screening strange and wonderful pieces of radio in strange and wonderful venues.
Whatever the outcome of the referendum in Scotland, one aspect of traditional Scottish culture will continue to have a surprisingly close link to a far off part of the world. Outside of Scotland, the world’s largest manufacturer of traditional bagpipes is Pakistan.
"VIP culture" in Pakistan lets politicians miraculously bend the rules to their convenience, and Pakistanis are no strangers to it. But on a recent flight to Islamabad, things turned out a little differently for a lawmaker and a former minister who passengers believed caused a two-hour delay.
Lifestyle & Belief
As one of the first black women to ever appear on German television, Mo Asumang has faced her share of hate — mainly from the neo-Nazis of Germany. And she decided to confront the haters, including American KKK members, in a documentary exploring how the Nazi's appropriated the Aryan identity from Iran.
Conflict & Justice
Women around the world often feel vulnerable to groping and sexual harassment when they ride on crowded public transit. And it can be hard to catch offenders. So the police in Colombia's capital, Bogota, have created a new squad of mostly female officers to catch those who harass — and to support female riders.
Arts, Culture & Media
Soaps aren't anything new in most parts of the world, but a long-running Nigerian radio show called "Story, Story" uses the techniques of film to create an immersive, realistic radio drama. The popular show also helps spread public service messages to a wide audience.
