    Rabia Chaudry, Undisclosed & Serial Podcast: how true crime podcasts are bringing real justice

    Rabia Chaudry, Undisclosed & Serial Podcast: how true crime podcasts are bringing real justice

    When Rabia Chaudry approached a journalist to tell the story of her friend Adnan Syed, all she hoped for was to find new evidence to use in an appeal against his conviction for the murder of Hae Min Lee. What she got was Serial – the podcast that became an international phenomenon.


    This is the story of how that show was made, and how Rabia, an immigration lawyer, is using technology to fight injustices in the US legal system, including through her own blockbusting podcast series Undisclosed. She also talks about her work as an executive producer on HBO’s The Case Against Adnan Syed documentary, and reveals her role in a new podcast for Netflix.

    Lilian Rincon, Google: OK Google, how do you build an assistant for 2.5 billion people?

    You probably know Google Assistant – the voice on the end of your phone or smart-speaker summoned when you say ‘OK Google’. This clever AI assistant can perform more than a million actions (including, famously, making phone calls on users behalf) and is present on more than 2.5 billion Android devices around the world. Plus it plays a part in a range of tasks on desktop and in Google search. The guest for this episode of Women Tech Charge is Lilian Rincon – the incredible woman behind this remarkable product.


    In this episode, Lilian talks to Anne Marie about the tech behind the Assistant, as well as some of the ethical thinking that goes into creating an AI powered product with truly global reach… and how she became the head of product for one of the most powerful new technologies in the world.

    Charmaine Chan, LucasFilm: making Disney+ new Star Wars show The Mandalorian

    Charmaine Chan, LucasFilm: making Disney+ new Star Wars show The Mandalorian

    If you’ve watched Star Wars VIII: The Last Jedi, Marvel’s Black Panther and Captain America Civil War, Jurassic World, or a whole host of other big-budget Hollywood movies in the past decade or so, you will have watched Charmaine Chan’s work. But if she’s good at her job – and she is – you probably won’t have even realised.


    Charmaine is a lead compositor for Industrial Light and Magic, the visual effects house owned by Lucasfilm (in turn owned by Disney) which has been responsible for bringing superheroes, Jedi and boy wizards to life. Most recently she’s been working on Disney’s hotly-anticipated Star Wars spin-off TV series, The Mandalorian, launching on the same day as this podcast episode (it’s as if we planned it!) on Disney’s new streaming service Disney+.


    Charmaine is also a passionate advocate of Women in the movie business, who has launched a video series, WomeninVFX.com, aimed at highlighting the work of women across her industry. In this episode of Women Tech Charge, Charmain chats to Anne Marie about her journey as a ‘queer woman of colour’ in an industry which, she says, needs to work harder to achieve greater diversity both on- and off-screen.
