She has also reported and presented for Radio 4 for over 20 years, was editor of The Biologist 2010-15, and produced/presented the Planet Earth podcasts 2008-15 (shortlisted for a 2013 European podcast award). She currently co-produces/presents the award winning Space Boffins podcast.

During her extensive broadcasting career, Sue has covered everything from cloning, species extinction and disease outbreaks to GM crops, eclipses and exploding rockets. She has driven a moon buggy on a London street alongside the last man to walk on the Moon, Apollo astronaut Gene Cernan, and delivered a TV report on the dangers of exotic pets with a python draped around her neck. Her online banking expose for Newsnight resulted in major banks and building societies reassessing their security measures.

Sue has written for most of the UK?s quality newspapers and has contributed opinion columns on science for The Times. A published playwright, Sue has also written for a TV game show, has had several screenplays made into short films, and is co-author of How to Clone the Perfect Blonde (longlisted for the Royal Society science book prize in 2004).

All this and Sue is a popular speaker, chair and events facilitator to boot.
