About

Stephen Hackett

Hello. My name is Stephen Hackett. I live in my hometown of Memphis, TN. My wife and I have three children and a dog named Eva Corndog.

I write and make podcasts for a living. I’m the co-founder of the Relay FM podcast network, and my writing can be found at various other places on the web. You can learn about these projects and more here.

I’m a collector of all things Apple. As such, old computers outnumber people in our house, and I have a dogcow tattoo on my ankle.
