Radio & Podcasts

In 2013, I teamed up with Maurice Kelliher to produce 'You Are Here', a documentary about the 13.7 billion year history of our universe. Since then, we have been making documentaries and podcasts as 'Maurice and Shaun'. Before that, I produced Futureproof, the weekly science show on Newstalk, from 2010 to 2012. I have also produced science reports for Inside Science on BBC Radio 4 and Health Check on BBC World Service.
