Today the focus has shifted and includes topics including remote working, working in the web industry, productivity, hipster beards and much more. Released irregularly but always produced with passion The Back to Front Show runs for around 40 minutes per episode and c ...

It’s been way too long and to be honest, we’d almost given up any hope of recording this landmark episode of our groundbreaking podcast! It only took a global pandemic and Kieran finally finding his mic to get us back from the brink of being a very slender footnote in podcasting history. In our 50th episode, we catch up on two very uneventful years…
 
Tap tap, is this thing on? After eight months or working out how to plug in our USB microphones, we finally figured it out and are back with 45 glorious minutes of chat! In this episode, we learn all about “New Kieran” — new job, new house, and a new laptop. We also discuss a great post on lessons learned running a subscription-based newsletter, di…
 
Ich freue mich sehr, dass Anselm Hannemann und ich einmal die Zeit gefunden haben uns hin zu setzen und über ihn und seine Projekte und Arbeit zu sprechen. Natürlich ist es immer schöner, wenn man sich live trifft und einen Kaffee dabei trinkt, aber auch via Skype mit Kamera war er super schön und unterhaltsam … zumindest für mich. Ich kenne Anselm…
 
Bastian Allgeier war mein erster Gast, als ich vor zwei Jahren angefangen habe mit twumble. Zwar habe ich es nicht in aller Regelmäßigkeit geschafft den Podcast zu produzieren, aber es macht mit immer noch Spaß. Ich war der Meinung, dass in den zwei Jahren viel bei Basti passiert ist und es interessant ist zu erfahren was es ist und wie er bestimmt…
 
Ok ok … ich habe nun endlich meinen Allerwertesten hoch bekommen und die Folge 10 geschnitten. Es gab bei der Aufnahme leider einige kleinere Komplikationen, aber ich denke es ist dennoch eine unterhaltsame Folge geworden. Ich bin nach Bonn gefahren und traf dort Dirk „Pixeleye“ Behlau. Ich kenne Dirk noch aus Flash-Zeiten, also schon echt lange – …
 
Happy 2018! Eschewing a long-standing tradition of not actually releasing shows we are kicking off the year as we mean to go on (for now) with a brand spanking new edition! Join us for 50 glorious high fidelity minutes (true for one of us) and celebrate five years of the show. We don’t dwell too long on our golden non-award winning archive and go o…
 
It’s hard to believe it’s only been one week, no really, since our last confession. Where does the time go? In this episode we catch up on what’s happened in our lives in the last seven days, discuss the latest goings on at Medium, ponder why the Guardian doesn’t write listicles and end on probably the best API in the world! Shopify Plus Canada 150…
 
In this episode of Back Stories, Keir chats with Oliver Lindberg— founder of the new Pixel Pioneers web conference series and all round content guru. Topics covered include how to find speakers for your conference, the role of a good editor, how to improve your writing skills, and how to pitch to an editor. Oliver Online Oliver’s personal web site …
 
Happy New Year to you all! Rather unsurprisingly we missed our end of year review but the outline was probably one of our best. Maybe we’ll do it next year! This episode we catch up on Kieran’s move behind the camera, argue over what exactly constitutes a pair of Daps and delve into the future of Medium in light of Ev Williams recent announcement. …
 
Zunächst einmal allen, die das lesen und hören noch die allerbesten Wünsche für 2017. Ich hoffe ihr seid gut in das neue Jahr gestartet. Ich freue mich echt sehr, das Joschi Kuphal und ich endlich mal zusammengefunden haben, um diese schon länger geplante Episode aufzunehmen. Ich habe schon einige Dinge zusammen mit Joschi gemacht und freue mich je…
 
I’ll say this — time off between episodes certainly gives us plenty to talk about. In our 45th, almost hour–long, outing behind the mics we welcome new members to “the club“, discuss Kieran’s move into the world of coffee capsule commerce, ponder on new forms of web education, and learn more what Kieran receives in the post! David McCann Matt Wilmo…
 
In this episode of Back Stories, Keir chats with Kurt Elster — founder of ecommerce agency Ethercycle, host of the popular Ecommerce Hacks Weekly video series, author of Ecommerce Bootcamp, and the host of The Unofficial Shopify Podcast. Topics include the benefits of the “peacock” jacket, naming your company, specialisation, automating inbound lea…
 
Welcome to the second episode of Back Stories — a new series of one on one interviews hosted by Keir Whitaker (one-half of the team behind The Back to Front Show). In this episode, Keir is joined by Craig Lockwood — long time friend of the show and the man behind endeavours including software, events, co-working spaces, and more. In this very open …
 
Welcome to Back Stories — a new series of one on one interviews hosted by Keir Whitaker (one-half of the team behind The Back to Front Show). Each episode, unlike the usual show, will come in at 30 minutes and will attempt to delve into the interesting lives of people working in the web, design, tech, publishing, and creative industries. In this fi…
 
It feels like only last week that the two “K Units” got behind the Samson CO1UPRO‘s and recorded episode #43. So close in fact, that we even manage to think we are still actually recording episode #43! In this short 53 minute episode, we catch up on recent life goings on, learn that Kieran has been “tamping hard” in his role as “Digital Guy” at the…
 
I know Keir for quite some time now and every time we sit down and chat, it turns out to be an interesting conversation. Sometimes about events, then about family and life as kind of a “digital nomad”. I mean we both life in a house and have a family with kids, but for neither of us it really matters from where we work and that leads to the fact, t…
 
For 10 years John Davey is running the well-known festival called Reasons To in Brighton. Reasons To started as Flash on the Beach in 2006. Within a very short time, Flash on the Beach turned into the one event you had to go to if you were doing anything with Flash and wanted to meet the creative heads you’d know from the internet. Nowadays, ten ye…
 
Ich bin Kai schon mehrere Wochen auf den Versen, um in einmal in die Show zu bekommen. Da aber die Veröffentlichung von Offscreen Nummer 15 kurz bevor stand, war seine Zeit extrem knapp. Nun haben wir endlich einmal wieder zusammen gefunden und ich habe ihn über seine Arbeit am und mit dem Offscreen Magazin befragt. Kai veröffentlicht das Offscreen…
 
In den letzten Wochen war Tobi ein paar mal bei mir und wir haben gefrühstückt. Beim letzten mal haben wir die Chance genutzt und im Garten sitzend endlich mal eines der Gespräche mitgeschnitten, in denen es um viel mehr als Musik oder Events geht. Tobi ist studierter Musiker und hat unter Tobi Lessnow schon einiges an Musik veröffentlicht. 2012 ha…
 
Anfang Juli war Eva-Lotta Lamm bei mir in Krefeld. Entgegen der sonstigen Gewohnheit die Show entweder über Skype oder in einem Raum aufzunehmen, haben wir uns diesmal in den Garten gesetzt. Das Wetter war einfach zu schön. Wir haben Kaffee getrunken und über viele spannende Dinge im Bezug auf Eva-Lotta gesprochen. Warum sie auf Events spricht, was…
 
Während einer Woche in New York, in der ich die Smashing Conference und die awwwards Conference besuchte, hatte ich das Vergnügen, dass mein Freund Christian Heilmann ebenfalls die ganze Woche vor Ort war. Wir nutzten die Gelegenheit und trafen uns während der awwwards Conference in einem Raum „mit allem drum und dran und Leuchtern und so”. Chris u…
 
Vitaly Friedman ist einer der Gründer von Smashing Magazine. Vor gerade einmal 16 Jahren kam er nach Deutschland, lernte Deutsch, traf Sven Lennartz, schrieb dann bei Dr. Web Artikel und gründete schließlich zusammen mit Sven das Smashing Magazine. Von Freiburg aus lenkt das Team um das Magazin nun die Artikelerstellung, produziert Bücher und veran…
 
In meiner allerersten Show von Twumble habe ich meinen Freund Bastian Allgeier eingeladen. Wir sprechen über all das, was hinter den Kulissen von Kirby und Co. los ist: Was beschäftigt jemanden wie Bastian, mit einem eigenen Produkt? Was treibt Bastian an und motiviert ihn täglich seinen Job zu machen und nicht einfach mal ein wenig Auszeit zu nehm…
 
This week we celebrate the internet’s very own Oliver Lindberg as we get #lostwithlindberg. Given our distinct lack of direction for this episode, it seemed only right and proper that our favourite editor of the internet takes this week’s naming rights. If you are ever lost, and if you can find him, maybe you can also get “lost with Lindberg”. Cue …
 
This episode is dedicated to our favourite Australian Gavin Ballard — all round good guy, world traveller, bon viveur and last but by no means least Shopify Expert. Gavin is a long time listener (we still aren’t sure why) and friend of the show. If we had a pin badge and sticker “care package” he’d be the first recipient! Topics covered in this meg…
 
In this week’s episode, we turn our gaze to the topic of ad-blockers and paid content. We discuss Vitaly from Smashing Magazine’s recent post looking at how they are funding their content strategy and discuss our own views on paying for digital content. As always we book end the show with some “bants” including heartfelt thanks to some of our favou…
 
Three years ago we started this little adventure called The Back to Front Show. Since then we’ve somehow managed to record 39 shows. Not the best of averages but who’s counting? In our milestone 40th show, we discuss the cake that never happened, Keir’s favourite new TV show, standing desks and end with a discussion that starts with Sarah Parmenter…
 
Like a phoenix from the flames, we have risen. Our year long retreat for slightly overweight tech men from the South West of England is officially over. We’ve eaten the kale, cleansed ourselves, got the glow and are now itching to get back behind the mics. It’s out with the Yeti’s and in with a spanking new steed for Kieran and a less than great “M…
 
In a change to the announced billing, an impromptu early morning phone call made us think a chat about remote working might be in order. As many of us fight the January blues, and inevitable bout of illness that the new year often brings, it felt a timely opportunity to discuss the good, and the bad, aspects of working from a distance. Topics we di…
 
Happy 2015! We are back for the new year with a look at four links that caught our attention over the holiday season. We also spill the beans on some of the topics we’ll be covering this year. Featured in this weeks episode: TechCrunch Cribs 12 Startups in 12 Months Just Try and do a Good Job Moonpig Vulnerability If you like our little show we’d v…
 
It’s that time of the year when we look back on the past 12 months and dish out our (cough, cough) highly prized awards! This year in the 2014 BAFTAS we have eight categories and round off the show with a little bit of crystal ball gazing in which we both make our predictions for 2015. Without further ado here are the categories and winners: The aw…
 
This week Keir tries to speak “Somerset” and no surprises for guessing the outcome of that one. Once that’s done and dusted we take a look at the rise in Markdown based writing apps, examine a new ebook service from Liberio, try and fail to work out the implications of the new EU VAT place of supply rule for digital services and finally round it ou…
 
We are back once again (albeit a few days weeks late). Illness, travel and house moves put things on hold but we’ll be back in full force in the run up to the holiday season. This week we welcome in our new logo courtesy of Sean Johnson and pick out four links and topical stories we found of interest over the last few weeks. Sean Johnson Nomad Comm…
 
Back from our travels we retrun behind the Yeti’s to discuss everything from the hunt for the perfect email app to the sartorial elegance of modern tech CEO’s. This episode also features a rather spledid retreat venue only four hours from Spokane. The Web Is Beyond Tellerrand Berlin Punctuation Tips Google Inbox Define the CTO Business casual has b…
 
Due to logistical issues Kieran was unable to join the party today. Thankfully Marc and Ben from Neutron Creations kindly joined Keir for a chat over lunch (literally). This week we discuss the recent web.is conference in Cardiff put together by our good friend Mr. Craig Lockwood. The Web Is Christopher Murphy Benjamin Hollway David Hieatt Managing…
 
This week Kieran joins us live via a pair of Apple headphones from Coffee #1. Complete with baristas creating flat whites and the chitter chatter of remote workers typing away we throw audio fidelity to the wind and freestyle over a few links from Keir’s web site. Codebase Deploy Dial 9 Sirportly Keir’s 404 page MAMP Pro Apache Failed to Start on O…
 
As we reach the ripe old age of 30 we sit back and chat about a topic we often come back to over an artisinal flat white – why do people think everything on the web “should” be free? We discuss some possible causes, the backlash against app developers charging for previously free tools and ponder if the rise of big VC has played it’s part too. Oh a…
 
This week it’s our links show in which we ask the question “does having a beard make you a better dev” as well as discuss a very meta podcast and a new team collaboration tool. You may notice a slight audio disparity towards the end. Unfortunately, Kieran’s Yeti cable fell out (professional to the end) a new mic is on order! Mendip Hills Somerset L…
 
After discussing Kieran’s classic 90’s Peugeot 306 Turbo Diesel we turn our focus back to six cuts from our web travels. This week featuring the finest in USB protection and 15 of the best productivity hacks money can’t buy. USB Condom 1 Year as a Digital Nomad – How to Build a Business by the Beach iPhone ATM PIN code hack Improving Smashing Magaz…
 
In the first of our bi-weekly links shows we chat about the latest news on the Editorially team, have some friendly banter about startup culture and Kieran delves into the world of devices. Editorially team goes to Vox Media The 10 Things You Should Do When You Have Your Next Web Idea How Startup Funding Really Works (Infographic) Disney Engineers …
 
Just when you thought you could delete us from your podcatcher we are back and with a distinct lack of excuses for our absence. This week we discuss our new weekly formats and chat extensively about “transitioning”. Over the last few months both of us have found our main focuses shifting and as a result the way we present ourselves online has chang…
 
No it’s not a mirage, this really is #023 of our occasional podcast. We must do better! Excuses are in abundance after which we discuss a whole raft of topics – some even web related! Beyond Tellerrand Web Teaching Day New pricing for The Web.IS Mike Kus designed a t-shirt for Shopify Cakebrew Bringing Pan Am Back To Life Figuring Out Responsive Im…
 
Six links and just under one hour of chat, what are we playing at? Variety is the name of the game this week. We discuss Kieran’s new event, Getty Images big news, magazine web sites, Netflix, coding standards, text editors and round off with the Mark Cuban’s best ever investment. The Web Is Indie Direct Getty Images goes Free Digest Magazine Upper…
 
Like the proverbial phoenix, we have risen! Kieran is back and we finally wish each other a happy new year. This episode we try and get to the bottom of why we weren’t nominated for a Net Award, this as you might imagine takes a while. We ask the other burning question of the week, that being is Harry Roberts (the one and only CSS Wizard) really un…
 
In our first episode of 2014 I am joined by new guest co-host Marc Roberts of Neutron Creations. After a lengthy chat about his rather special coat we moved onto more web related links and finished up with a discussion on node.js. Big thanks for Marc for taking the time to come on the show. MKGN All Dayer EJS on being less social I can smell your C…
 
It’s the end of year Back to Front Show awards special. An opinonated, and occasionally tongue in cheek, look back over the last year in which we celebrate the events, the trends, the people, the apps, the podcasts, the magazines and the books that have made 2013 a great year. We also have details of our first ever guest co-host who will be joining…
 
We are back after a what can only be termed a travel enforced sabbatical. This week we chat about two new books focusing on remote working, Kieran regales us with more eco-living tales and we discuss why our industry seems obsessed on building businesses to flip.
