Josie has presented 3 BBC Earth web series; Unexplored, Space Mysteries
(episodes 6-10) and Weird Science on the BBC Earth Facebook page and
BBC Earth Lab YouTube Channel. She presents on a range of topics from
Anti-gravity to Martian law!
Josie has a following of 35k+ on TikTok where she posts a variety of content - primarily on astrophysics, physics and science.
Josie began presenting science in 2014 when she co-presented on the popular astronomy podcast The Jodcast at the University of Manchester during her MSc. When she got to Oxford she started a YouTube channel and began presenting at live events and on podcasts (Recycled Electrons, A Piece of String). In 2017, Josie was selected to attend the Sheffield Doc Fest Talent Market, an event to bring new presenting talent to factual TV and Radio producers and agents.
An exciting project Josie contributed to was The Edge of Science, a BBC Studios and YouTube Originals programme hosted by Rick Edwards and Colin Furze, with 2.1M+ views on the science of levitation. She got to ride a hoverboard!
