Podcast Anniversary Week!

A mere year ago, Matty and I fired up the laptop and started recording. A year later, we have roughly 40 episodes and with no plans to stop, who knows how far we can go?

Thanks to all for listening, even if only for a minute. To celebrate our anniversary, we knocked out several episodes which have been trickling out over the last week.

Rather than clog your inbox with several posts, here they are (little secret — I went on a long holiday and completely unplugged). Sorry to vomit all this content out on ya.




Episode 7 is LIVE!


MattyLovesPodcast episode seven: “There is no ‘I’ in ‘team’ (or this podcast).”
