Dan Faulknor

Dan is a serial podcaster, full time day job worker and a business owner. How he gets time for sleep is anyone's guess. He started podcasting in 2005 with "The Daniel and Gemma show" to go along with a blog he was doing with a friend. Unfortunately those archives have been lost. After a few more attempts over the years at podcasting, he has now been podcasting consistently since 2015. In what little free time he has, apart from spending time with his wife, he writes software, takes photos and plays the piano.
