I’m an assistant editor at the New Statesman, where I run the Observations section of the magazine and contribute features, interviews and reviews. I’ve also written for a variety of other publications, like the Timesthe London Review of Booksthe Millions, Total Politics, the New York Times, and the Guardian. I appear occasionally on Sky News and the BBC News channel, and sometimes I’m on the radio as well.

I co-host the weekly pop culture podcast SRSLY, which can be found at, and send a newsletter every Friday about what I think of the internet – see back issues and sign up at
