LATEST EPISODES



MEET THE BEARS

Al Galpin - "Al Bear"

Hi, I'm Al, thanks for checking out my website.

As well as the radio and podcasting projects found here I’m also interested in football, graphic design and wrestling. I’m keen on comics, country music and chocolate as well as burgers, baseball and bourbon. And apparently alliteration.

I’m a husband to Kitty, dad to Hunter and a Pointless finalist.

Kitty Galpin - "Mama Bear"

My wife (some might say long suffering), is the reason I started my first real podcast, the Dead Piett Society. She was my first co-host, possibly the most reluctant podcaster in the world.

Lover of books, tea and Captain America's arms.

Hunter Galpin - "Hunny Bear"

Our little performer; star of all of my video projects and the reason they exist. He's a bit of a legend, loves singing, dancing and playing up for the camera... at least when he's not ignoring us and getting into mischief.

Loves Go Jetters, counting and not tidying up his toys.

SIDE PROJECTS

A Southampton based team in the Solent Softball League which I founded back in 2015.

A fantasy wrestling promotion (eFed) which I ran for several years in the noughties.

I have an Etsy store, which isn't always active, where I sell prints, digital art and custom portraits.

If I stream a gaming session it's probably Pro Evolution Soccer that I'll be playing, with my custom team.

An occasional messy streaming show where I do some cooking with Hunter, which we started in 2020.

CONTENT PARTNERS

These are some of the organisations we've had the pleasure of working with on various projects.

PODCAST & RADIO PROJECT ARCHIVE

I've created several podcasts over the years, with mixed success. Here you can dins details on all the inactive shows and listen to the archives.

A Weird News Podcast, discussing the oddest news of the week.

A Fake News Podcast, light hearted fact checking with guests like Tiernan Douieb.

A magazine style podcast featuring mini-versions of other podcasts.

A podcast that teaches you how to do simple things you already know how to do.

A short-lived radio show that focussed on the best in Contemporary Country.

BLOG POSTS

I don't often write things in the blog, if I'm being honest. So I expect these posts are pretty old by now.
Who knows, maybe I'll post something new soon!
