You’ve got a story to tell, and a vision of how the world should be. You’ve waited long enough to recognise that your voice has value, so now it’s time to find your people and unite them.

Speaking up takes courage and it’s not without risk. The tech feels scary, and while your heart says “go for it!”, your lizard brain’s asking “What if nobody listens?”

Hiya 👋 I’m Mark. I’ve been making podcasts since 2008, and have helped over 1,500 podcasters start shows that turn followers into fans.

I love Mark's ability to support me and create a safe space, to be practical yet empowering, and to help me eat the elephant one bite at a time.
—Serena Savini, Host, I'm Back!

There are two types of podcasters in the world: those who think “I should start a podcast!” and those whose friends say “You should start a podcast!” That enthusiasm can only take you so far – to actually ship something people want to hear… that’s where the hard work begins.

It might not feel like it, but the tech stuff is the easiest to sort out. The deep and truly valuable work is in crafting something remarkable, something that is uniquely you, and that lights a beacon for others to gather around.

But deep work doesn’t have to be heavy. This is a process you’re going to love, and it’ll show you things you never knew were possible.

This is me

I gave a talk at the Happy Startup School’s Summercamp event in 2022, where I got to tell my story from wannabe radio DJ to podcast coach via tech.


“I won’t let you fail”

When I was in my last year at University, I was in a room with my dissertation supervisor and a few other students. We were all expressing how scared we were that we were going to fail because the work ahead felt so daunting.

Our supervisor, the head of the department at the time, said something that has stuck with me ever since.

“I won’t let you fail.”

What he went on to say is that he wouldn’t do the work for us, but would be our safety net, our goalie, to make sure that work that was beneath our standard wouldn’t go through.

I take that same philosophy when I work with clients. I won’t let you look or sound foolish, or express a version of yourself you’re not happy with.

While I don’t produce individual episodes, I’ll work closely with you – and whoever you want to bring on to help – to ensure you sound like you at your very best.

This is going to be so much fun

You might be doing big and important work, but that doesn’t mean the creative process has to be weighty. Not only am I confident you’ll enjoy recording and releasing episodes, but we’ll have fun working on this together.

Mark allowed Shamash and I to basically play for the whole time and not worry about anything. Honestly if this is what work is meant to feel like, then we're on to a winner.

Pricing and payment

The price is £2,340 (around $2,900). You can split that into

  • 3 payments of £780, or
  • 6 payments of £390.

Don’t let self-doubt be what stops you

There might be any number of good reasons why starting a podcast isn’t the right thing to do just now. But self-doubt shouldn’t be among them. If you know who you want to help, the only thing to do is to figure out how we do that in a way that’s attractive to listeners and sustainable for you.

People want to hear what you have to say. You can show them from your spare room or your kitchen table. You don’t have to be visible if you don’t want to, or feel like you’re taking up space that’s already occupied. Your voice has value, and it deserves to be heard.

Such a rich and great partnership – always supportive, awesomely talented and with you on the journey.

I've no doubt without Mark's help I'd still be twiddling my podcast thumbs, thinking and not doing. Instead I'm close to 20 episodes in and excited by the next chapter.
—Ben Johnson, Host, Peripheral Thinking
It's impossible to know what you don't know. When you're busy with the grind of making a weekly podcast, it's very hard to find an opportunity to stop and take a broader view of how things are going or where improvements can be made. So Mark provides that overview.
—Zoe Edwards, Host, Check Your Thread
Some people instinctively make good ideas better, they can't help but elevate; Mark is one of them. This is the kind of personality everyone needs on their side - especially in this industry because podcasting can be a lonely and relentless business.
—Lucy Clayton, Author and podcaster, Dress: Fancy
Mark is amazing. He is helping me come out of my shell and become visible in a way that I didn't even realize I needed. I couldn't have imagined a better guide in the process of starting a podcast, and we've only just begun.
—Anna Kolak
Mark is so knowledgeable and experienced he makes complex things incredibly simple. He's flexible, and gently sees the gaps in your knowledge and fills them in, helping to create a professional and high quality offering.
