The Back Story

The original Back to Front Show is an irregular, and often irreverent, web and tech industry-focused podcast hosted by Keir Whitaker and Kieran Masterton. With over 30 years of combined experience, they’ve learnt a few things — most of them the hard way.

The show is recorded with the aid of two cheap USB microphones and a dodgy Skype connection. Each episode sees them dive into the latest happenings in the web and tech industries and chew the fat for around 40—50 minutes.

The show does not focus on one area in particular instead choosing to discuss topics from the hipster cultural stack, including but not limited to:

  • Back-end technology
  • Front-end development
  • Web industry news
  • Web conferences and meetups
  • Startup culture
  • Freelancing & small business
  • Web frameworks
  • Web platforms
  • Tools
  • Apps
  • Funding
  • Remote working
  • Shopify and ecommerce

Your Hosts

  • Keir Whitaker — (pictured right) Business and marketing consultant dedicated to helping Shopify focused agencies, app companies, and technology partners. Fond of a Negroni and Cold War fiction.
  • Kieran Masterton — (pictured left) Shopify solutions and app development consultant. Lover of big white hounds, retro tech, and bad 80s horror.
