    Explainiacs 13 – Tim Arnold (musician, composer and social activist) on releasing your own music, his new album, and the power of music for good

    WELCOME TO EXPLAINIACS 13!  It’s a very lucky number 13, because we’re talking to the musician, composer, film maker and social activist Tim Arnold. Tim tells us how to create a long and happy musical career as an independent artist by releasing your own material. He takes us into his songwriting process, which have led to collaborations with the likes of Iggy Pop, Boy George and Lindsay Kemp. And, he talks about his 20th album ‘When Staying Alive’s The Latest Craze’, which has been created, recorded and released during COVID.
    You can stream and download Tim’s album – and his incredible back catalogue – at https://timarnold.bandcamp.com, or go to his website www.timarnold.co.uk
    Please let us know if there’s a subject you’d like us to cover on Explainiacs – simply get in touch at Explainiacs.com - and see you for the next episode soon!

    In under 20 minutes, we learn what true leadership under pressure is - and isn’t. How can we all apply the techniques that they teach top soldiers to our own lives, and how can we plan for, and handle, adversity.

    Explainiacs 11 – Bertie Müller (Senior Lecturer in Computer Science, government AI advisor) on how to think like an AI

    Welcome back to EXPLAINIACS - SERIES 2!

    And what a way to return! This time, we’re lucky enough to have one of the leading minds in AI with us – Dr Berndt Müller - to help us to think like a learning machine. We talk about AI development, ethics, creativity, and what young people will need to learn, to be ready for an AI-driven future. We also settle some of the myths about what artificial intelligence is, and what it definitely is not.

    20 minutes of conversation at the cutting edge of augmented intelligence.

    Explainiacs 9 – Jeremy Hylton-Davies (playwright and screen writer) on how to pitch, develop and get your script on screen

    Explainiacs is back, across an actual table from an actual human being who’s been behind some of the best known dramas, actors and film makers of all time. 

    Jeremy Hylton-Davies is here to explain how to take a small script all the way to the big screen. From the first idea, through the pitch, to development and the screenplay, Jeremy explains how the professionals make TV and film happen, way before we see the end results.

    16 minutes of chat, from the Union Club in London which we hope you enjoy as much as we did, glimpsing the real world from a safe, social distance.
