About Phil Bowyer
Phil Bowyer was born in the small town of Thornton, Illinois where he grew up in a house that is rumored to be a speakeasy during prohibition.
At the age of fourteen, Phil joined the town’s volunteer fire department beginning a decade-long career as a firefighter/EMT. It was during his time as an instructor in the fire academy that the early concepts of Phil’s “Rule Breaking” Philosophy began to form.
In 2004 Phil began testing his Rule Breaking philosophy when he launched Phibble with his wife Kate. Two years later Phil released his first podcast episode which quickly grew to a network of six shows hosted from three continents.
The biggest test for Rule Breaking came in 2006 when Phibble produced a short horror film as a way to release a soundtrack to promote several bands the company was working with at the time. Even with unforeseen challenges and setbacks, the film released on time with zero budget.
In 2009 Phil released his first book, “Social Media Strategies”, followed by “Coloring Outside The Lines in 2014, both earning stellar reviews from readers.
Since then, Phil has written, produced and directed several more podcasts - including “Rule Breaking Ideas” (2015) the horror fiction show “The Attic” (2017) and the supernatural thriller “A Walk In Darkness” (2019).
Phil is currently writing the successor to “Social Media Strategies” and a book on how to create a successful podcast. Phil is also developing several new podcasts including a comedy series.
