Running Podiant

Most of my day-to-day involves running the podcast hosting company Podiant, which I founded in 2016. It's the best thing I've ever done, and every day presents a new challenge. As well as hosting them, I'm also helping to produce podcasts like Beyond Busy, Speaking Business and more.

Presenting and producing podcasts

Right now I present and produce

List Envy

Where I collaborate with a guest to build a top-5 list on a topic they choose

Thread

A comically misanthropic two-headed personal journal, with Jon Hickman

Improvising

I'm a founder-member of the Birmingham-based improv comedy troupe, OK Stop!. We perform on the last Wednesday of every month at 1000 Trades in Birmingham's Jewellery Quarter.

Making music

My musical alter-ego Barnard Star is going to attempt to write and produce a song for every month in 2020.

Writing a children's book

In 2019 I wrote the first draft of a kids' book, set in the fictional, animal-inhabited town of Fogsworth. I'm planning on spending the winter whipping it into shape.


I work mostly from Moseley Exchange in Birmingham.
I live in Stirchley, Birmingham.
I have two cats.

I got the idea for this page from Graham Allcott, who in turn got it from Derek Sivers.
