Ellie Richold – Producer
I began working in radio in 2006, as a broadcast assistant for the Latin American arm of the BBC World Service (BBC Mundo), before sidestepping into research for the Radio 4 sociology programme Thinking Allowed.

I made my first documentary for Radio 1 in 2008; an investigation into the rise of ketamine use called Through the K Hole, which was nominated for a Sony award.

Since then I’ve made programmes and features for the BBC about scallops, otters, dung beetles, The Lorax, The National Curriculum, Shakespeare and more. I’ve worked on programmes such as Costing the Earth, Natural Histories, Great Lives, Word of Mouth, The Echo Chamber, Dream Builders, Exchanges at the Frontier… and made recordings and podcasts for various organisations outside of the BBC.

In 2020 I completed a Masters in Virtual & Extended Realities at the University of the West of England (UWE), and I now produce VR as well as podcasts.
