In addition to my academic role, and sometimes as part of it, I regularly engage with formal media work. This includes providing comment, being an invited guest on television and Radio programs, partaking in public panels, Podcasts, Print media, and more. This is a non-exhaustive list of media publications and programs which I have not personally authored, but in which I am featured/have contributed to.
