Jon Bounds documented outsider culture on the website Birmingham: It’s Not Shit for ten years and then kept going elsewhere. He’s also written on culture, politics, and other things for The Birmingham Post, Fused, and The Guardian. He’s often appeared on TV and radio as a commentator on place and culture: including on the Radio 4 Today programme. A former editor, barman and football referee, he ekes out a living doing stuff with social media, art and journalism and is also web editor for a large NGO. After completing the journey round all 55 piers he decided city life wasn’t for him: he and his wife now live in a small town in Oxfordshire where he is thinking of joining the local Morris Dancing side.
