Meet the Team behind The Podcast Host & Alitu
There are many hats to be worn when it comes to running The Podcast Host and Alitu. Here are the globe-spanning team of folks who wear them…
CEO & Founder
Colin is a podcaster, international speaker, PhD and founder of The Podcast Host and Alitu. Colin started out in Astrophysics, before realising how much maths you had to do. Turns out Podcasting has less maths, and more interesting puzzles! Now he’s been in podcasting for 12 years and aims to help everyone to get their voice heard.
Audio & Content Production
Enjoys working in sound design and audio production. Makes puerile and often quite pessimistic audio drama. Likes to help others master the craft of podcasting, without ever having mastered it himself. Is pals with rabbits. Always learning.
Web / Admin / Alitu Support
Judy is a WordPress website expert, in-charge of the admin side of things and a problem solver over at Alitu. She’s been with the company since 2013 and continue to grow along with it. She loves solving pesky problems, providing solutions and generally just a happy helper. Outside of work, she spends time with her husband and her girls. She’s a freak for plants, pizza and coffee 😉
Alitu Podcaster Success
Allegra is a long-time podcaster who loves audio more than popcorn and she loves popcorn! She enjoys making complex things seem simple and has never met a question she didn’t like.
Alitu Development Team Lead
Bran is interested in anything and everything tech-related. In his free time he’s usually tinkering with some hobby side projects that will make him rich and famous one day.
Sean is passionate software developer from Dundee, Scotland. When not writing code for Alitu, he’ll be out climbing or catching up with his favourite podcasts.
Head of Marketing
Jacob’s job here is to connect budding broadcasters with the resources they need to share their stories, laughs, and knowledge. His love for podcasts comes from waaay before his professional days, before leaving school even. Every morning at the crack of dawn he’d pick up his stack of newspapers, get an earphone in to listen to his favourite pod, and cycle around town on his paper route. There’s not much that warms up a crispy cold Scottish morning, but a hilarious conversation in your ear to keep you company does the trick.
Lindsay Harris Friel
Lindsay earned an MFA in Playwriting from Temple University in Philadelphia, and took her live theatre skills straight to podcasting. She enjoys helping people find new ways to tell their stories. When she’s not writing content or participating in the Live Q&As for The Podcast Host, she enjoys making audio drama and learning more about the craft of interactive storytelling.
