Interview: Carl Cullinane and the Democratic Dashboard


I recently interviewed Carl Cullinane, mastermind behind the fantastic electoral data website Democratic Dashboard, as part of my work for the Global Lab podcast. This was an excellent way of alleviating my gnawing political withdrawal symptoms following the general election in May.

Carl was a really great interviewee and we had an enjoyable discussion about his research group Democratic Audit (which maintains a fascinating political blog); the Democratic Dashboard; disparities in voting power across the UK; and the possibility of electoral reform.

A ten minute edit of this interview is included in the latest episode of the Global Lab, alongside two other interviews on the loose subject of democracy and “counting heads”:
