Meet the team


Steve |Co-Founder & Creative Director

Steve is the co-founder of Bengo Media. A former Head of BBC Radio Wales, he has spent over a quarter of a century working in broadcasting, predominantly radio. When he’s not spearheading clients' latest podcast episodes, or teaching the content creators of tomorrow at universities, he can be found trying to beat his personal PB in the local Parkrun.

Marina Headshot

Marina |Co-Founder & Business Director

Marina is the other half of Bengo Media’s founding dynamic duo. With a background as a Radio Station Director and Broadcast Product Developer, it’s Marina that looks after our product offering, business development and marketing. When she’s not coming up with wild and whacky ideas, she can be found laid up on the sofa bingeing on box sets.


Branwen |Producer

There just aren’t enough words to describe our multi talented Branwen. Radio and TV producer for over 25 years (in both English and Welsh, we’ll have you know!), published author and marketeer, we’ve finally managed to coax her into the world of podcast production. Yaaay!

In addition to her podcast projects, Bran has been tasked with ploughing Bengo’s course for commissions as our development producer.

When asked to describe herself: “1 partner, 2 children, 2 dogs, 4(ish) horses, grateful for Bengo Adam in my life at all times for tech support, live in a field, drives terrible cars, loves meeting people and the privilege of getting to tell their most intimate stories.” Strange that she missed out medalist in local and national equestrian showing and dressage events…

Clare Hudson Headshot

Clare |Producer

Our tremendously experienced, calm-under-fire producer of BBC Radio Wales’ recurring series ‘The Idea’, came to us via a lifetime in TV. From current affairs at ITV to Head of Programmes AND Head of Production at BBC Wales, to helping re-generate Doctor Who (ask her!). And we couldn’t be happier to have helped her re-kindle her love for radio.  When’s she’s not scouring the internet, festivals (remember those?!!) and lecture circuit for the next great public talk, you’ll find her out on her bike thinking up new content ideas.


Georgie |Producer

Radio producer since the age of 14, Georgie got herself nicknamed ‘Princess of the Dawn’ by her colleagues at BBC Radio Oxford for her cheerful and calm disposition coupled with unrivalled organisational skills at silly-o-clock in the morning.

Well, with such an accolade, we would have been daft not to make her part of the Bengo Radio 2 Early Breakfast Show team. But Georgie’s talents can’t be contained. She’s also got an exceptional flair for podcasts, so you’ll also find her spearheading many of Bengo’s flagship projects, including winning us a British Podcast Award. 

When she drags herself away from Bengo Land, Georgie can often be found on a netball court, sea swimming with her dog Percy, and supporting her local pub with a cider or two with her husband.


Gwenda |Producer

This ridiculously talented, astute and bubbly producer literally wrote the encyclopedia on Welsh journalism! (Porth Esboniadur). Gwenda has been part of the Welsh broadcasting landscape for decades as a producer, director and broadcaster for both HTV Wales and the BBC. She's been a journalism lecturer, imparting her incredible knowledge to the next generation at Cardiff University's world renowned school of Journalism, Media & Culture (JOMEC).  Even as our lead Welsh language producer, she still finds time to perfect her backhand and reign supreme as Super Vet Champion at her local tennis club. 


Vicki | Executive Producer

Vicki is our very own radio ninja. She brings over 20 years of radio experience, both on and off air, to our Bengo Radio 2 Early Breakfast Show team and podcast projects.

When not in Bengo land, you’ll probably hear her keeping her skills highly tuned presenting shows throughout the Virgin Radio Network as well as bright and early on Saturday mornings on BBC Radio Wales.

And in her down time? Well, she only goes and runs her own voice over company, spends time with her wonderful family, and manages to squeeze in the occasional bubbly cocktail!


Kayleigh |Junior Production Assistant

The Radio 2 Early Breakfast Show team’s very own bottle of pop by day and Bengo client experience ninja by night as she bravely oversees Bengo’s social media whilst cheekily sneaking in some podcast production on the side. You’ll find her in her happy place surrounded in a sea of multi- coloured post-its (other brands available) and lists.

Fresh-faced and enthusiastic as she is… don’t be fooled! She’s the definition of a smorgasbord of media talent, from working in social media management, tv presenting, producing radio and hosting podcasting workshops across Wales!

When she’s not boogieing her way through her early morning radio shifts, we often find her building up an appetite for a good old fashioned roast whilst sea swimming (no matter the weather!) or being bossed around by her rather large cat Blossom.

Josh Bowness

Josh |Junior Production Assistant

We're not overstating it when we say Josh is pretty bonkers about radio! Give him a jingle package and you'll not see him again for weeks!! And that love started in community radio and then live BBC Local Radio, producing shows and delivering travel bulletins.

But with his Bengovian hat on, he's an integral part of The Radio 2 Early Breakfast Show team.

And his path to us? Just as bonkers as his love for radio; theatre management, aviation, libraries, electric car marketing... Amassing a very healthy list of skills that he deploys daily!

When the alarm clock isn't going off at 2am he can be found managing the website for a local Arts Fringe, spoiling his cat Rebel or watching big-metal-boxes-on-wheels (cars to you and me) go racing.

Adam Walley Headshot

Adam |Chief of Audio Visual and All Things Tech

Unflappable, with a cheeky demeanour to boot, chief of technical shenanigans and audio visual producer extraordinaire, Adam has all the know-how you’ll ever need to make your podcast sound amazing. Although he tries to tell us he’s mad keen on football and F1, he can’t hide the fact that he eats, sleeps and breathes his two favourite things; rock music and quality audio. And we wouldn’t have him any other way. 

Christian Gates Headshot

Christian |Editor

Our supremo audio editor is a graduate of sound art and music production with a decade of experience in multimedia tours, audiobooks, podcasts and radio. He’s an electronic music obsessive, record collector and amateur musician, but above all, happy valet to the boss, Poppy, his dog. And don’t worry about the frown. We’re reassured he’s smiling on the inside.

Alice Gray headshot

Alice |Researcher & Wales Podcast Club Co-ordinator

A self - confessed podcast junkie, and fellow podcaster (check out 'Inside The Petri Dish') , Alice  is a neuroscientist-turned-media professional. She's a STEMinist blogger, science writer, broadcaster and founder of 'MindfulofScience'. She has over 8 years experience in science journalism and media production, with a particular interest in using podcasts as a tool to tell important stories in science, health and lifestyle. Who else would you want in your corner?

Alice also now runs our Wales Podcast Club community.


Lynsey |Organisational Ninja & Chief of Bengovian Happiness

She’s the rock on which Bengo stands. Making swift work of HR paperwork, paying everyone swiftly, keeping Steve and Marina in check and on occasion,  known to dabble in some live radio Broadcast Assist-ing. And on that 8th day of the week, you’ll find her cradling a cuppa plotting out the action of her novel.


Aurally ambitious

We’ll keep our ear to the ground (every pun intended!) to keep up with the latest techniques so that your content can tickle / caress / hug / inspire [delete as appropriate] every earlobe it comes into contact with.

Lightbulb / Idea

Captivatingly creative

No two audiences are the same, so by spending time honing in on yours we’ll be able to give them something they truly want to listen to in a way that really chimes with them.


Delightfully driven

We like to think of ourselves as utterly lovely to deal with, but don’t confuse that with flaky. We’ll keep pushing both you and ourselves to be the best we can be.


Naturally nurturing

What goes around, comes around, so by treating and continuously training our colleagues well, they in turn will bring their A-game right to your door. 

Heart Drawing

Proudly passionate

Our nearest and dearest may roll their eyes at us every time we chat about what we do, but the plain truth of it is we love it and don’t mind at all if our enthusiasm rubs off on all those around. You’ve been warned 🙂
