I'm a sub-editor at Global Voices. I live and work in Delhi, India. I've worked in editing and communications for over ten years, with five at Penguin. I co-host a podcast, the Fat. So? Podcast, and I set up India's first in-house news podcast network for the Indian Express. Always happy to talk about cats, books, food, human behaviour and languages.
