Jamie is the creator and host of the popular BBC podcast The Missing Cryptoqueen and is the author of The People Vs Tech, The Dark Net and Radicals. He has explored everything from online subcultures and hackers to blockchain and cryptocurrencies to the threat social media has on democracy.


Jamie Bartlett is a Senior Fellow and former Director of the Centre for the Analysis of Social Media at the think-tank Demos. He is a bestselling author who has written extensively on the political and social impact of technology, and presents the BBC’s investigative podcast The Missing Cryptoqueen.

In The People vs Tech: How the Internet is Killing Democracy, Jamie examines the intersection between technology and democracy, and how the digital revolution is destabilising our already fragile political system. He is also the author of The Dark Net, which looks at the spread of online communities and the growth of internet crime. His research on radical movements across Europe, and the minds of political outsiders – both idealists and extremists – is explored in his book Radicals.

In speeches, Jamie tackles everything from the politics of technology, including questions around the ethics of social media, big data, privacy and surveillance, to sociological aspect of tech, including internet subcultures, crypto-currencies, machine learning and automated sentiment analysis (also known as emotion AI, the process of understanding subjective opinion from written and spoken language).

Jamie frequently writes for The Spectator and is a feature writer for The Sunday Times, The Guardian, Foreign Policy and the Telegraph. His BBC Two documentary, The Secrets of Silicon Valley, explored the false promises that technology has brought for global economies, and how it has weakened many aspects of politics and society.
