Podcasts, News Pieces and Interviews

There are numerous places that you can catch up on the work we’ve been doing over the years in a variety of way. Please remember that these pieces of work were carried out over several years, and are a record of the research at that time. Things have evolved, so I’ve structured them by date so you can see where we were at different times. There are other pieces out there, but I’ve only provided links to the main ones, and those I have been directly involved in.
