Adam Stoner

I produce audio, digital, and design content for the UK's children's radio station, Fun Kids. I also make podcasts Mysteries of Science and Activity Quest. Boom Radio, RadioDNS, BBC Radio Gloucestershire and Digital Radio UK all employ me as their freelance designer. I also contribute to The Week Junior's Science+Nature magazine too. If you'd like to hire me to work on your project, get in touch. Interested in sustainability and purpose-before-profit, I'm an investor in Black Bee Honey, BrewDog, The Wild Beer Co and have founded multi-award winning social enterprises with the same values in mind. Preferring newsletters and podcasts over social media, my monthly missives recap what I've been doing as well as what I've been listening to, reading, watching, and procuring. Get it as an email or as a podcast episode.

Andy Warhol

His body blue, no blood pressure to speak of, and no pulse to find, artist Andy Warhol was declared dead on arrival at Columbus Hospital in New York City – 4:51pm on June 3rd 1968 – having just been shot by a former colleague at his workshop, The Factory.

Bleeding on the gurney, a senior doctor took a fleeting look at the corpse, peeling back an eyelid and watched as its pupil contracted in the bright emergency room lights.

Andy Warhol wasn't dead...



Walking the Ridgeway

The story of civilisation is one told entirely on two legs. It's only because our ancestors decided to wander out of Africa 80,000 years ago that you and I are fortunate enough to be here today. From settlements to silk roads, those initial ramblers laid the foundation for everything to come...

When astronaut John Glenn commenced mission Mercury-Atlas 6 to become the first American to orbit the Earth, he had something strange strapped to his silver spacesuit: a stopwatch.

Seconds after launch, Glenn starts the stopwatch in sync with tracking stations across the world and at that moment Mission Elapsed Time begins counting up from zero. And so a new timezone shared between a handful of specialists on Earth and one man in space is created: a new epoch...

2,572 hours ago: How I spent my summer

I left this space 2,572 ago on my 26th birthday, exhausted and anxious.

Living online for the past fifteen months had worn me out in a way interacting in person never did and whilst working, writing, podcasting, and publishing fulfilled a desire to be heard, it came at a cost of being seen. 

More people saw, read, and listened to things I had made in those fifteen months than Belgium, Barbados, Bermuda and Bahrain have people, combined...

Read the full thing at

My life has always been marked by distinct phases and cycles of time; a flow of death and rebirth and reinvention; a constant redefining and mis- and re-understanding of what it means to be me.

The closest comparison to these cycles that I can think of comes from music marketing...

I don't need to have an opinion about everything

Read the full thing at

It is in our power to have no opinion about a thing, and not to be disturbed in our soul; for things themselves have no natural power to form our judgments. – Marcus Aurelius (Meditations 6.52)

Marcus Aurelius was a Roman emperor and philosopher whose musings on life have transcended centuries. I'm not sure who came up with this next one but I'm sure it'll live just as long.....

It's 2018 and I've just purchased a Doxie portable scanneron the recomendation of Ryan. Although it won't happen for another two years, my family are gearing up to move house and I am systematically scanning then permanently destroying every bit of paper I have...

Noah Kalina, Kraig Adams, Prince Philip

As hospitality and service sectors both in the UK and around the world reopen, it feels a little like the theatre curtain is lifting – not after interval (with sticky ice-cream fingers and some slight discomfort because the line for the restroom was too long to even bother) – but at the start of the show. 

The return to normality has been most marked by the headlines...

There are very few events that warrant the complete seizure of attention that the death of Prince Philip had on the news agenda just yesterday.

I don’t have a living memory of 9/11 or 7/7 so at the age of 25 the death of Prince Philip — and the almost disaster-movie-like interruption of the media schedule for it – is the closest thing I’ve gotten to what feels like a world-stopping moment. Even the truly world-stopping pandemic had its press conferences scheduled...
