I recently had the opportunity to participate in an interview about digital maps. The interview is in BBC Radio 4’s excellent ‘Digital Human’ programme on Maps.

In it, I speak about why maps increasingly matter in our digital age, and why – perhaps more than ever – we need to reflect on issues of voice and inclusion/exclusion. Maps matter, and this programme is a timely reflection on how and why they do in contemporary society.
