In this final episode of the series, I talk with sex tech founder, Stephanie Alys, about the changing landscape of sex tech… Join us as we discuss how a focus on sensuality and pleasure is helping to re-orient the industry, and redefining some of the ways in which we seek out and experience our sexual selves.

You’ll have heard all about the Cambridge Analytica scandal, but do you know about the ground-breaking research that led to some of the profiling practices hitting the headlines today? Join me as I talk with Dr David Stillwell about the fascinating and sometimes frightening world of psychometric segmentation and data-mining – how it’s done, what it can reveal, and where responsibility for ethical practice may lie.

The Hive Podcast – A new series


Welcome to The Hive Podcast, a new ten-part series with me, Nathalie Nahai, exploring technology’s impact on our personal, cultural and political lives.

Join me each episode as I interview a fascinating array of guests on everything from psychology, surveillance, data privacy, and sex robots, to politics, AI, personality profiling and much, much more.


January’s P/O/P/A/G/A/N/D/A, explores our often confusing personal relationship with Data.

Host and tech specialist Zoe Cunningham is joined by digital culture writer and Guardian columnist Tom Chatfield and web psychologist Nathalie Nahai to introduce ideas around their relationship with Data Presence, Data Intelligence, Data Abstinence.

The audience will then be invited to contribute to the conversation and potentially be part of the conception of a new language and perceptions around Data Intelligence or ‘DQ’.

P/O/P/A/G/A/N/D/A is an event, which controversially proposes a new perspective around a live issue that is floating through popular culture, people’s minds and current conversations without perhaps being fully considered, punctured, ‘popped’.

From the event we then produce an audio P/O/P/Cast that we share with the leading thinkers and influencers in the space to help them pop some assumptions and see their world a little differently.



Humanise The Web

Harness persuasive technology for good

Humanise the Web is an intimate, interactive one-day event that seeks to explore our hidden psychological relationship with technology, and how the internet is influencing our decisions, relationships and lives.

We’ll discuss the original intention behind the web’s inception, how the internet is shaping our identity, and how we can use tech to increase our wellbeing. We’ll also explore the dark net, benevolent deception and the quantified self, as well as the effects of hookup apps and pornography on our relationships.

There will be interactive thought experiments and a live show on the secret life of your mobile phone, as well as fabulous food an a fabulous little afterparty…

They always say that the first is the best for a reason ; )
