On July 1st, 2021, Jon's environmental comedy, 'Extinction Compendium,' written and presented by him, made its debut broadcast on BBC Radio 4. Produced by Jon Holmes of Unusual Productions, the half-hour show featured biologist Gillian Burke and HDM’s Alasdair Beckett-King. Building on this achievement, Jon has gone on to record and broadcast three additional episodes of his environmental comedy for Radio 4, collectively known as 'Carbon Lifeforms.' The fourth installment, a Christmas Special, aired on the 17th of December 2023, featuring climate scientist Dr. Tara Shone and produced by Jon Holmes.

“Charming and yes, funny”

The Guardian

"What a warm, witty, human being. He compered and also stood in as auctioneer at our event and was fantastic. He stepped in at the last minute and lifted the whole event onto an entirely higher plain and our supporters and sponsors responded accordingly. We’re very grateful to him professionally and personally, he made us weep with laughter, while also keeping pace and momentum. Brilliant.”
