If you would like me to appear on your media outlet then you can contact The Economist’s media team here.
You can email me at soumayakeynes [at] economist [dot] com if you’d like to tell me about something I should be writing or podcasting about, or if you’d like to ask me to speak at your event. Whether I’ll be able to do it will rely on things like my availability, whether I’m sufficiently expert on the the topic you want me to speak about, and whether acceptance would leave me conflicted.
If you would like me to moderate a panel of more than two speakers, then a necessary (but not sufficient) condition is that at least one speaker not be male.
As well as being an economist and a writer, I am a singer. I currently sing with the 18th Street Singers. My past choirs include the Exon singers (I’ll be on their next CD), the Lacock Scholars (our two CDs make excellent gifts), Khoros choir, The Cantus Ensemble and London Contemporary Voices (here we are singing with Amber Run, here we are with Imogen Heap and here we are singing some East 17 cheese). I’m the backing singer on Anthony Jackson’s EP (link here).
Here’s me singing with the amazing Sarah Donnelly.
