We are an independent and amateur audio production studio, specialising in podcasting and radio, but also covering certain aspects of graphic and web design. We primarily create our own content, however if there is a project that you're looking to get off the ground we are happy to talk with you to see how we can help you achieve your goals.

Al Galpin - "Al Bear"

Hi, I'm Al, thanks for checking out Bear Cave Studios. This is where I showcase all my various projects, and potentially help you with your own projects.

I studied Radio Production as part of my degree in Media Studies & Business Management from the University of Manchester, have been a presenter on Hospital Radio, student radio and local commercial radio in the North West of England.

I've been podcasting since 2007 on various shows, launched a charity podcasting event in 2017 and launched my own radio station in 2020. I also have syndicated radio shows currently airing on over 25 radio stations across the world.

As well as radio and podcasts, I’m also interested in football, graphic design and wrestling. I’m keen on comics, country music and chocolate as well as burgers, baseball and bourbon. And apparently alliteration.

I’m a husband to Kitty, dad to Hunter and a Pointless finalist.

Kitty Galpin - "Mama Bear"

Al's wife (some might say long suffering), is the reason he started his first real podcast, the Dead Piett Society. She was also the first co-host, becoming possibly the most reluctant podcaster in the world.

While Kitty doesn't actively work on any of our current projects she is the reason we exist in the first place!

Kitty is a lover of books, tea and Captain America's arms.

Hunter Galpin - "Hunny Bear"

Our little performer; has been used for small bits of voiceover and is the star of all of our silly video projects. He's a bit of a legend, loves singing, dancing and playing up for the camera... at least when he's not ignoring us and getting into mischief.

Loves Go Jetters, counting and not tidying up his toys.


Got an audio project you'd like some help on? Whether it's a voiceover, some audio editing, help creating a new radio show, designing a podcast logo or anything else... we're happy to help. Alternatively if you want to talk to us about any of our projects, about requests for syndication or sponsorship and everything in between... just fill in the box below and we'll get back to you as soon as possible.
