Hello, my name is Adam Stoner.
I graduated with 1:1 BA (Hons) in Radio Production from the University of Gloucestershire in 2016 and have been producing radio and podcast, digital and design content for the UK's children's radio station, Fun Kids, ever since. There, I produce podcasts The Week Junior Show, Mysteries of Science and Activity Quest and look after many more.
I also freelance and have worked with clients including Boom Radio, RadioDNS, Digital Radio UK, and Clearwater Hampers. If you'd like to hire me to work on your project, get in touch using the contact details below.
Interested in design, sustainability and the environment, and the impact of technology on people and the planet, I'm discovering more about the things that help make life more simple, safe, and private. Transparency and accountability are a couple of my core principles which is why I take a tough stance on advertising and sponsored content and why I've chosen to host this very website with the not-for-profit, can't-be-sold, open-source product built by the Ghost Foundation, Ghost(Pro). I find the ongoing assault against privacy an affront which is why I've taken a stand and made this website without any kind of tracking beacons or social media icons that send your data back to tech-oligopolies with only de-facto consent. It's also why I publicly and financially support tools that help grant individuals more privacy including zero-knowledge cloud storage and end-to-end encrypted messaging.
I've run social enterprise initiatives with these same values in mind, including a multi-award-winning cider co-operative. Profits went to support local projects including the University of Gloucestershire's Tone Radio – where I spent two years as Head of News and Head of Technical during university – and the All Golds rugby league team. In 2021, I pledged to donate 2% of my gross earnings to combatting climate change, doubling my commitment as a past member of 1% For The Planet.
On this website I write about a mixture of things including technology and projects I'm working on, as well as hold conversations with people I find influential. You can find out what I've been up to at the end of each month including what I've been reading, writing about, and listening to by becoming a member of this website and subscribing to my monthly email newsletter. Free and paid plans are available.
My podcast, Adam Stoner, is an audio version of this website. If you prefer listening to things rather than reading them, you can follow it right now on Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Spotify or wherever you get your podcasts. You'll be able to find out even more about me and get updates whenever they appear.
To stay up to date with my work, follow my podcast, subscribe to my email newsletter, or to this blog with RSS.
Please do not contact me about including links in my articles to your content, sending me things for review, or advertising on adamstoner.com or in my personal podcast. I use HEY which lets me one-click block senders I don't want to hear from; you'll end up on that list if you abuse my attention.
I am not on social media of any kind.
