Many Jericho programmes are captured in a series of podcasts – usually 25-minutes in length and hosted by award-winning journalist and Jericho partner, Matthew Gwyther, produced by Paolo Ruiu. Some of our most recent work is captured below. Do please subscribe to Jericho podcasts via iTunes and/ or Spotify – and feel free to rate what you hear!

Technology & Investment: Social Justice and Power

The most recent series has dug deep into themes of Social Justice and Power in Tech. Based on an initial provocation from Margaret Heffernan on the “propaganda of inevitability”), the podcasts include a series of thoughtful interviews with, among others, Sir John Hegarty; Financial Times Innovation Editor John Thornhill; Baroness Denise Kingsmill; and a collection of tech. CEOs, campaigners, activists and disruptors. The final episode in the series –The Establishment Response – features DCMS Select Committee Chair, Damian Collins MP, scourge of Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg. Tune in here.

The Social Justice in Tech. community, convened on behalf of investment bank Stifel and CEO Eithne O’Leary, is now over 300-strong and growing. Please get in touch if you would like to contribute.

The Built Environment: Frameworks to Build a Better Britain

Earlier in 2019, Jericho concluded a nationwide engagement and listening programme on behalf of BRE Group – Frameworks to Build a Better Britain, addressing challenges in the built environment, from housing to sustainability and social inclusion.

The story is told through a series of podcasts recorded in London, Manchester, Swansea, Edinburgh, Coventry and Belfast and captured in this summary case study. The programme concluded with a number of policy ideas and recommendations sourced from our ”wise crowd” community of 500+ experts – developed peer-to-peer, as part of the project.

Transport: Moving the City for Good

Jericho’s focus on building a Better Britain is closely aligned with work elsewhere on housing and transport. In this 2018 podcast series, we explored and developed fresh thinking around Moving the City for Good – convened on behalf of Go-Ahead Group and CEO, David Brown. Alongside the podcasts, the Go-Ahead programme culminated in the publication of a pamphlet, rich in ideas and initiatives on subjects ranging from air quality to smart technology and new regulatory frameworks.

Business, Leadership and Comms.

Elsewhere in the land of Jericho, our occasional evening interview series – The Activist Leader – is also available to download. Listen to Matthew’s gentle grilling of, among others, Bill Browder (author of Red Notice); former BT Chief Exec. Gavin Patterson; and Justin King, ex-Terra Firma and the man widely credited with the Sainsbury’s transformation. The Activist Leader resumes in spring 2020.

Finally, just in case you missed it, you can listen to Robert’s thoughts on why PR is Dead and what comes next – shared through podcast interviews with Management Today, Media Masters and The Holmes Report.
