My podcasts

I first started making podcasts in 2008. Fairly quickly I began helping my friends make their own podcasts, in exchange for beer 🍺. Then in 2016 I got my first podcast client, and I haven’t looked back 🎉.

My music

More of my music

I was eight or nine when I wrote my first song. It took me another 10 years before I’d write something I didn’t hate 🙈. Sometimes I write silly songs, sometimes they’re more earnest. I love seeing how my style and vocal tone has evolved over time.

My writing

I’ve always loved creative writing. Sometimes it’s a way of processing something difficult – like with music. Other times it’s simply a way to tell a story in greater depth.

Also on my plate

Toys & gadgets

Occasionally I get an idea in my head to build something... usually something silly. I actually got hired by the BBC to build something very silly, so all those years spent in the box room of my parents’ house weren&Rsquo;t entirely wasted.

Past glories


Podiant began with Mark’s frustration with another podcast hosting company. He wanted to build a platform that would make posting podcast episodes quick and easy, but would also give each podcast a good-looking, responsive website with an embeddable web player.

Nymbol was conceived towards the end of 2011, while Mark was still working on Meegloo. After that project folded, he began work on a prototype, and then brought in his former employer Andy Hartwell as Managing Director of Nymbol Ltd.


Meegloo sprang from an idea passed around between some of Birmingham’s digital consultants and creatives, to create a unified dashboard for remote attendance to events. Mark built a prototype over the easter of 2011, and in July pitched it to an incubator in Aston.


Before embedded tweets were a standard offering from Twitter, Mark developed this tool to allow anyone to generate some HTML code they could embed into their own blog posts, to include tweets they wanted to reference.
