Karl Hughes has never written any short stories before, but he has certainly heard a lot of short stories. That’s because he is one of lead audio editors at Hawk & Cleaver. Karl Hughes has been editing The Other Stories every week since the beginning of space and time, it wasn’t that hard to steal the job from Luke Kondor….in fact he almost gave it up too easily. If you need help and advice recording your own podcast, or perhaps need a theme tune or some awesome sound effects creating, then you can contact Karl Hughes on twitter @karlhughes.

Josh Curran is a narrator and writer. He has narrated many episodes of The Other Stories over the show’s lifetime. He is also the creator of the horror Audio-Drama podcast, Miscreation. You can follow him on twitter, @jcurranwriter
