Chris Book, CEO Bardowl
Podcast episode: 49
New Model Audiobooks or Lessons learned in starting a digital publishing business
Chris is a technologist first and foremost. Chris studied on the Modular Course at Brookes between 1993 and 1996, his main subjects were Computing, Intelligent Systems and Bodrum Kebabs. The inspiration for Bardowl came from years of listening to audiobooks and podcasts, knowing they could be delivered better. Chris has only ever worked in mobile, starting his career at Orange in 1997 and has worked at the most exciting mobile companies since, pioneering the mobile internet and apps ecosystems. Chris cannot quite believe his luck that his two passions of Books and Mobile have intersected as industries and enabled him to start Bardowl. Chris also organises conferences and barcamps such as The Power of One, The Big M, openMIC and BathCamp. Chris lives in Bath, is married with 2 children, has a 2nd degree black belt in Tae Kwon-Do and supports Tottenham Hotspur. Chris tweets far too much at @bookmeister.
