About Us

Ice Broken Productions, a registered company in the UK, was founded in 2020 by actor, journalist and broadcaster Xander Brett. We're linked to the BBC in the UK, RTÉ in Ireland and ARTE in France/Germany. Our expertise is in producing podcasts, radio documentaries, audio books and more.

Xander began broadcasting in Canada, before moving to Burst Radio in Bristol. He hosted a Sunday evening show and served as their Head of Production, commissioning new shows and going on air as a continuity announcer (syndicated to BCfm). From 2019-20, he hosted their Saturday Brunch show, a Friday evening show and read sport and travel reports. He also directed outside broadcasts, and produced and presented various special programmes for the station, including profiles of Keith Floyd and Eddie Shoestring.


Outside broadcasting, Xander edits and writes for various publications. He also presents video reports and hosts the monthly Nordic Podcast, running alongside his blog, Fika Online
