Sue is an award-winning science writer and broadcaster, and a presenter of the Planet Earth podcast (edited versions of their content can be heard on Naked Scientists). Sue wrote to NASA as a teenager asking how to become an astronaut. They advised studying physics, which she did, but was diverted into the BBC instead. She has been making science programmes for BBC Radio 4 and the World Service ever since.
A former BBC science & environment correspondent for TV news, she has a passion for space science and astronomy and is a founding member of the Space Boffins podcast. Sue also writes drama and comedy and, despite the physics degree, somehow ended up editor of The Biologist. She cannot stand the sight of blood.
