Hello!  So you have either navigated here deliberately or the planets have aligned and you have stumbled across my page accidentally... 

Either way, I. Welcome. You.

[Quotes in green are actual feedback from listeners!]

So, what is this site all about?  Well primarily, this was a website for my Media Production company nowadays, however it started as a website for my Podcast, which was not always called Infinite Prattle! 

When I first stated the Podcast it was called 'Stephen Speak!' which was closely followed up by a short form podcast 'Xtra Speak!'* that ran in tandem in between the main episodes (go listen to the earlier episode there are some gems!) - but this morphed into the home of my fledgling media company named after the first iteration of the podcast- 'StephenSpeak! Media. Production.'

“…I'm listening to your Podcast, it's like having a conversation with you- without you being here…”

The website has evolved to showcase my business and a home to my now called Infinite Prattle! Podcast.  Along with the business and Podcast there is also a 'The Blog' (which is a blog- this that obvious?) and some other things to seek out such as my equipment page, plus more to be added in the future I'm sure.  


My Podcast Stephen Speak! was born in April 2022, and was started out of the fact I like to talk, A LOT, and my wife suggested that I could start a Podcast (I think she was looking for a break from my ramblings to be honest).  Each episode was about 30 mins long in the beginning, although I have had a couple of 'Specials' where I have prattled on for longer on certain subjects.  Nowadays I try to keep the 'prattle' to about 20 mins withe the excepton of guests episode.

My goal always while recording episodes for the Podcast is to be free!  I don't ever write a script, and rarely prepare to be honest the vast majority of the time have no idea what I even going to Speak about until pressing record, and best of all I don't edit anything. So you hear all of me, every time...

[I will let you decide if that is a good or bad thing!]

“…I’ve just listened to your first episode and I’m onto the second and I have been riveted(!)…wow, I love what you’re doing…”

I am quite and have always been a creative person, and I believe Podcasting has encapsulated a few of my loves; 

  • Talking (aka Prattling!)
  • Being Entertaining (I hope!)
  • Creating artwork for the show (are you impressed?)
  • Coming up with the theme tune! (are you impressed now?)
  • Utilising tech! (mmm...tech...)

Having an outlet for my thoughts (it is quite a cathartic hobby) is just what I need, having quite an intense and stress inducing [at times] day job.  Being able to be me on the episodes is such a release - although I think a little bit of me is held back- I am working on this as I want the Podcast to be a true reflection of Stephen [me].

"...I enjoy your ramblings and openness about stuff...”

The timetable of producing a podcast every week has kept me focused and although sometimes the uploads aren't always exactly on time (apologies!) I get my episodes out to a rough schedule.  Every Sunday at 5pm GMT.  I have really enjoyed the process, and although it would be nice, I am not doing this for money gain (or fame).  If someone listens, finds it entertaining, informative, or gleams one iota of joy from my random thoughts, my retold experiences, and prattling that I commit to the ether of the Podcasting inter-web, then I would be most satisfied. 

“…Interestingly I normally finish my coffee just I join the M53, when I arrived [at work] with half a mug left, I can only assume I was drawn in by what I was hearing…”

Season two of Stephen Speak introduced guests which has changed the whole dynamic of the show and the content I produced. It was and remains an amazing experience, chatting to people and interacting, another thing that I love.  Although I have to reel myself in sometimes- I try not to prattle too much and let the guest talk!

I cannot wait to see who will make an appearance in future and my hosting and interviews skills will only improve.  Saying that, if you think you'd make a good guest or want to suggest someone then go to the 'Speak to me!' page. 

Xtra Speak!* came about not long after the inception of the main episodes. It was created as I wanted to be more succinct (I try) about a specific topic or aspect of a story etc. Shorter quick episodes that last 5-15 mins in length. Topics are as varied as the main Podcast but are a solo venture... for now at least, I have no plans of having guests on Xtra Speak! as I think it would detract from the purpose of these 'bonus' nuggets of audible joy!

I decided to retire Xtra Speak! in Season 3 [sorry if you liked them!] as producing two kinds of separate podcasts on one account was getting time consuming and maybe confusing for the listeners.  I felt the shorter episodes also needed, ironically more time for the supposed short topics I chose [hey what can I say, I prattle!].  SO, I decided to cancel Xtra Speak! and focus on the main show reducing run time to around 20mins for my solo pods.


Most recently for season 4, came the re-brand.  I had at this point already made the decision to start a media company and make a go at turning hobby to business [wish me luck!] and so came a rethink of the brand.  I liked the StephenSpeak! name, and logo, and thought that it reflected my personality.  So that became the base for the company name...

'StephenSpeak! Media. Production.'

So, with that what to call the Podcast, I wanted to separate the two and have the Podcast become the first production of SSMP.  I had used the word Prattle a lot to describe my show, and decided that was the start I would make that a tag line.  I quickly realised that this was the new name.  How long could I 'Prattle' for...?  Infinity....thus...

Infinite Prattle! Podcast was born...

I redesigned the StephenSpeak! logo (barely) and set to the new Podcast logo.  I think it turned out swell.  I have some fine tuning to do still, and have alternates to use for varying applications.

The re-brand was risky, as I was achieving in the weeks running up to it increased downloads and engagement so only time will tell if I have made a faux pas.  I will just add the Podcast remains the same, the name was the only thing to have altered [I am still winging it!]

“…if you want my 10 pence worth, keep it as unplanned and unstructured as you can because that represents you the best…”

Thanks for stopping by and please explore the website, listen to the Podcast here or on most Podcasting Apps, read The Blog and I will Speak to you soon...
