Hello, my name is Jordan Maskell and I am a Canadian host/producer/journalist, with a passion for podcasting and mixed martial arts.
My first exposure to journalism was in 2007 when I completed a 290-hour co-op at The Simcoe Reformer. I graduated with honours from Simcoe Composite School and enrolled in the Print and Broadcast Journalism program at Mohawk College. During that time, I was involved in numerous media projects, my favourite being the INDI 101 radio program Mountaineer Sports. Along with host Matt Marcone and fellow journalist Jordan Small, we began a segment focusing on mixed martial arts before the sport was legal in Ontario. In my final year, I became co-host of the show.
Upon graduating in 2012, I began producing more MMA content including articles, photos, videos and podcasts. I was able to cover multiple Bellator MMA and Score Fighting Series events as media, as well as producing and conducting interviews with members of the MMA community including Ryan Jimmo, Chris Clements, Elias Theodorou, Dan Miragliotta, Brian Rogers, Marlon Sandro, Ryan Ford, Bjorn Rebney, Travis Marx, Lyndon Whitlock and Taylor Solomon.
I fell in love with podcasting after an in-class assignment in 2011. Marcone and I than began recording our own show, Podcasting with Marcone and Maskell. We launched the network in April 2012, and as time went on I eventually took over. The Maskell Podcasting Network is currently available through iTunes, RSS feed, Stitcher and MASKELL.TV.
The flagship show is The Maskell Sessions, which I began recording in 2013. The show has since evolved from just a podcast with friends and interesting people into news and current events show with a dash of comedy. I produce, write, edit, and host the entire show. Along with podcasting, I’m also a photographer, videographer and writer. I’m a fan of good films, television, music, podcasts and comedy.
I strive in my life to create the best quality content possible. I am always looking at new ways to improve my show, engage my audience and take The Maskell Sessions to the next level.
Thanks for visiting the site, enjoy the show!
