Episode 35: Dr Sue Black

Sue and RooMeet the esteemed computer scientist, academic and Bletchley Park campaigner Dr Sue Black, and find out how she fell in love with the birthplace of British computing, and why the 1980s classroom BBC Micro is more dangerous than you think. Elsewhere, your hosts discuss everything from the 'Hide and Seek' live gaming event that took place at London's National Theatre recently, to why boys aren't allowed to play with girls' toys, and The Great Twitter Portrait Project. Our Dave pours out more odd drinks, and are we having a stroke, or does everything taste of cinnamon?

When you've listened to that, check out Leila's anti-lifestyle magazine All The Rage, which returns this month after a year away, like Wispa. The summer special is themed on STYLE and is resplendent with former Shift Run Stop guests including Naomi Alderman, Adam Tandy, Peter Fletcher, Alex Preston and our very own Roo and Dave!
