With podcasts covering technology and creativity, Relay FM brings together some of the most influential and unique voices on the internet to create powerful content each and every week.
Relay FM was co-founded by Myke Hurley and Stephen Hackett in 2014. Since day one, the network has been the destination for people looking for well-produced nerdy podcasts. Myke and Stephen have a combined 20 years in the podcasting industry and have grown Relay FM from its initial slate of five shows to nearly 30. They are joined by an amazing group of podcast hosts.
Myke has been podcasting since 2010. What started as a hobby for him became a passion, and ultimately a career. Myke hosts a variety of podcasts with topics ranging from the latest in technology to creativity and productivity to pens and paper. He has been able to turn the things that interest him into podcasts, with a wide range of talented collaborators. These podcasts are now some of the most successful in their genres.
Myke lives in London, England with his wife Adina. His professional background before podcasting was mostly in financial services and marketing, but his interest in technology and creativity dates back to his teenage years.
Stephen lives in his hometown of Memphis, TN with his wife, their three children and way too many old computers.
After earning his journalism degree from The University of Memphis, he had a successful career in IT, including time at Apple as a Genius, then later as the repair manager at an Apple-Authorized Service Provider and Director of IT & Multimedia for The Salvation Army in the Memphis area. He's written about the technology industry at 512 Pixels since 2008 and has been podcasting since 2011.

She lives in Oregon with her husband, child, two cats, a dog and many half-started crafting projects that she will totally finish someday.
Relay FM is a proud supporter of St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.
The Relay FM community has raised over $2.2 million in funds for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital® since 2018. Each September, the hosts of Relay FM podcasts mark Childhood Cancer Awareness Month by discussing St. Jude and its lifesaving work. Then at the end of the month, Myke, Stephen and a rotating panel of guests host the Podcastathon for St. Jude, an 8-hour live video show dedicated to raising awareness and funds for research, care and treatment by St. Jude.
About St. Jude
Founded in 1962, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats pediatric cancer and other life-threatening diseases. As a result of the tireless work by St. Jude staff, doctors, researchers and supporters, St. Jude has been part of major strides in raising survival rates worldwide for childhood cancer. It’s also one of the top organizations conducting pediatric cancer research worldwide. Developing enhanced care practices for children across the world, St. Jude is also the first comprehensive cancer center dedicated solely to children.
Families at St. Jude never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food, so they can focus on helping their child live.
In the 60 years since its founding, St. Jude doctors and researchers have created treatments that increased the overall childhood cancer survival rate from less than 20% to more than 80%. St. Jude is also in the midst of a $12.9 billion six-year strategic plan. This strategic plan aims to help even more of the hundreds of thousands of children who develop cancer each year.
