Martin Zaltz Austwick is a lecturer in data visualization and programming at the Bartlett Centre for Advanced Spatial Analysis (CASA) at UCL. Martin has an interest in cities and networks, having previously studied Quantum Physics and worked as a Medical Laser Physicist. Public engagement is central to his work through data and model visualisation, blogging, podcasting, public talks, video, music and a dedication to supporting and training. In his spare time Martin is a musician, urban rambler and award-winning podcaster.


Martin's talk will reintroduce some of the big ideas around podcasts - accessibility, their use as a gateway to public engagement and broadcasting, and the potential to represent a diversity of voices, styles and perspectives. Martin will ask the floor some of the key questions - What are the aspirations for peoples’ podcasts? How is it relevant to public engagement? and How can they make them sustainable?
