10 July 2015, Monocle 24 Radio interview on space politics

I had a lovely studio interview this morning on “The Globalist” programme of Monocle 24 Radio (even if it meant getting up very early, at least by my nocturnal standards).

From the Monocle Radio “Globalist” website:

“The perfect way to start the day in Europe is with Monocle’s morning news programme. Join Monocle 24’s editors, presenters and guests as they set the agenda in international news and business.”

I was initially contacted with regards to the progression of New Zealand’s Rocket Lab company, though the discussion in the studio was more broadly about space commercialisation and regulation of the industry.

If you care to listen it can be download from the Globalist Monocle 24 radio episode 965 website. The bit about space starts at about 21 and a half minutes.

* Monocle had lovely studios and great equipment, in Central London. This image is just an excuse to use a photo I took a few months ago, in Bosnia, of a lovely old funky radio!
