In each episode of the Human Risk podcast, I speak to Behavioural Science practitioners, people who have experienced Human Risk at first hand, leading researchers and innovative thinkers.  

What can you expect? A wide range of guests, including:

A marketing guru on why Compliance is like reverse advertising.

A sexologist on how the lessons we’ve learned in promoting Safe Sex can help promote compliance with COVID-19 mask-wearing requirements.

A hidden camera comedy show host on how we respond to authority figures.

A soccer journalist on the psychology of playing in empty stadia and team dynamics.

An organisational consultant on how the issues we face when doing online meetings isn’t a case of Zoom Fatigue, but rather Zoom Trauma.

An Oxford University Professor who works with the worlds’ top food and drink brands, who explains how our experience of eating and drinking is a matter of sensory perception.

A 22-year old with compromised immunity who was so unhappy with her government’s attempts to influence her peers to respect social distancing, that she made her own commercial which went viral on Social Media.

As well as a host of academics, authors and thought-leaders on other Human Risk related topics.

Also on this page are links to episodes of other people’s podcasts that I have appeared on.

I have also appeared on a number of other people’s podcasts. Rest assured that I only agree to go on podcasts I rate highly, so every one of these is worth subscribing to.
