It all started with a Hitachi cassette player. With a built in microphone, I would host my own radio shows, complete with ads, music, interviews, and more.Little did I know that this childhood passion would blossom into a love of radio broadcasting. So, when podcasting came along, I was over the moon.Check out my current and past podcast adventures below. And maybe you can subscribe to 'Last Night I Watched...' while you're at it.

Last Night I Watched...

With so many streaming services, what should you watch next? Hell, you won't find the answer on this podcast. But you will find honest, unfiltered, candid film reviews of whatever I stumble across. Maybe you'll find a hidden gem. Maybe you'll find a steaming turd. Join me on this random film journey across cyberspace, which you certainly leave you with something to talk about when you utter the phrase: "Last night, I watched..."

BPM Pod (ended 2023)

For four years, I ran a bi-weekly podcast (BPM Pod) focusing on the unsung voices of the amateur music scene. Each episode achieved approximately 1,000 listens. There were 100 episodes in total, with over 50 different guests.
