Have You Heard? is where the Pod Bible team meet the people behind the podcasts you may not have heard of yet. While the Oh. My. Pod. section in the magazine gives a quick shout out to shows of that ilk, Have You Heard? aims to go deeper in an effort to spread awareness for shows that deserve more exposure! We recently heard from Professor Sue Black, host of the new podcast from Durham University’s podcast 100 Moments That Rocked Computer Science.
Who are you and what’s your podcast about?
I’m Sue Black, Professor of computer Science and Technology Evangelist at Durham University. Our #100Moments podcast is about the 100 most exciting moments that rocked computer science. Tech is all around us these days and is changing the world in front of our eyes, we talk to the key people involved in the most exciting moments about their involvement in changing tech history.
What was the first podcast you ever listened to?
Oooh, good question! I’m not sure I can remember now, probably Serial – which is absolutely amazing and heartbreaking, that’s definitely the one that got me hooked.
Why did you decide to start podcasting in the first place?
I absolutely love technology and the computer science that it is based on. Tech and education have completely changed my life enabling me to bring my family out of poverty, run the campaign that saved Bletchley Park and so much more…
Which podcasts do you take inspiration from?
I like On the Edge with Andrew Gold and anything by Malcolm Gladwell.
Who’s your dream guest for the podcast?
No question, [19th Century mathematician] Ada Lovelace <3
What’s the biggest lesson you’ve learnt so far as a podcaster?
It’s so much fun! I can’t wait to do more 🙂
Which episode would you say is the perfect introduction to your podcast?
We thought hard about the order for our first series, they are all stand alone episodes. Episode 1 is a good intro, episode 2 was a lot of fun, so either 1 or 2.
