On 2011-07-12 Clark announced a hiatus in pod-casting The World Technology program. The announcement did not include anticipation of resumption of program distribution, though Clark stated he would remain as a technology reporter with WGBH-The World.1. The podcast was brought back by popular demand a few weeks later, with the introduction of "B-sides," longer stories, often taken directly from the BBC, and replay in length. After moving from Belgium back to the United States in summer of 2012, however, the podcast did not continue.

Clark has also had stints on Frontline World, WGBH Boston's global issues documentary series seen on PBS in which he covered numerous stories including a feature on Kiva.org [1] and the impact of a silicon valley start up and technology on the Secret Files in Guatemala.[2]

He holds a bachelor's degree in international relations from Georgetown University and a master's in theological studies from Harvard Divinity School. In 2006-07 Clark was a Knight Science Journalism Fellow at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.[3]
