Talking briefly about my new venture – Toby Honest!
Thought I try to “reboot” my things posts because it’s a nice way for me to share things I’ve found or discovered online recently, so without further ado!
Mental health shouldn’t be stigmatised or taboo but there are still people that believe that it’s something that shouldn’t be talked about or shared, I hope that by sharing my own story and experiences that I can help contribute in some way to eliminating the stigmas.
In honour and celebration of reaching my 14th year of being a podcaster, I sat down with my gorgeous partner, Jos!
It’s been 6 months since the powers that behind Tumblr decided to blanket ban adult content from their site
This blog post was written on so many different days and over a course of a couple of months and I didn’t just want to just delete it so I thought I’d try to make it into something…not sure what that something is but I want to get it out of my drafts and into the world…so….enjoy?!
Using the fact my bike is in need of repair to record shows on the way to work.
After realising that my bike had a puncture, I took the opportunity of walking home to record and talk about a few things. After this podcast I’m going to write […]
Walking to work during Storm Gareth and giving you a little update on my life.
I haven’t blogged, vlogged or podcasted in fucking ages and I’ve almost been avoiding doing so…
I want to take this opportunity to share all of my online and social media links because I’m fairly active all over and want to make sure you guys can follow me in different places.
So already pretty much my whole Tumblr is flagged as explicit and will be removed or made private from the 17th December – I’m trying to think of the positives […]
A podcast of two (or more) pieces and days, reflecting on awkward situations and then talking about digital/physical connections and mental health.
So after this Wednesday, I will have 10 days off.
At this point in my life I’m in flux

I’ve not composed a post on here for a while and I’m not quite sure how to kickoff but I have this real sense of being overdue
Trying something different this morning, recording a podcast whilst taking a shower.
You probably weren’t expecting to see a video from me for a while, let me explain!
I’ve reached my 13th year of podcasting – time for a chat!
YouTube doesn’t seem to be a place where I can get my content out to a larger audience anymore.
I give you a little bit of a trip through my journey in creativity and where I’d like to go in the future creatively too.
I went to the barbers and felt all cute and creative afterwards!
Talking about overcoming fears, creating, Kevin Owens and vivid dreams!
Today’s show was recorded from a most glamorous location…the toilet…whilst cleaning it, not using it…LOL
Talking about a few things and then getting deep when talking about polyamory and how I feel about certain things.
My first podcast since I relaunched as TDYLN back in 2013 that stars another person, a very special guest…my wonderful partner, LION!
So today I received an invitation to a school reunion and in the past my initial reaction would’ve been to decline the invite immediately and get on with my life but this time I actually decided to confirm my attendance.
It was my day off so I decided that whilst I was doing laundry I would record a show.
Talking about interacting with people, self created fear, future photoshoots, future topics, my energy levels, selling my underwear and an ongoing shoulder injury.
Join me whilst I was getting ready for a late shift earlier on this week.
Talking about underwear, late shifts, poetry slams, communication changes and a forthcoming holiday.

In my defence

What if I fail?
If you were to cut through me I’d probably bleed puns.

It’s been 9 years and 364 days since I started my podcasting journey, I take a time to reflect and reminisce a little about it all.
