Introducing a new side-project: Fatal Error (a podcast).

Tl;dr: head over to to subscribe for episode releases and updates.

I spent a large portion of last year learning about climate change and the challenges it poses.

When you get stuck into this topic it’s very easy to go down a rabbit hole of anxiety, leaving you feeling disempowered and possibly rather stressed.

So in conversation with colleagues, neighbours, friends, and activists I decided to see whether I can do something meaningful in the area.

After various fanciful ideas I decided to focus on an industry I know well: software companies. And almost as soon as I made that decision I realised that in all the companies I’ve worked at and all the conferences I’ve attended, this was not a topic of discussion.

Is it because software companies don’t care? Are they too busy or is it too overwhelming an issue to touch? Or something else?

In reaching out to contacts and acquaintances I realised lack of interest was not the issue. A lot came back to me quickly with a surprising (to me) willingness to talk to me about this topic.

The line-up for Series 1 is pretty impressive, if I say so myself. The production qualities are not always ideal, but in my not-so-humble opinion I think that the content will make up for it.

Teaser clips will be airing shortly followed by full episodes in the coming days. I’m excited.
