It’s been a rough few months for this humble podcaster.

I could offer you a blow-by-blow account of how both the conversation and the way I share it with you went sideways, but I fear that would bore you immensely. What I will say is that I have missed doing this. Dropping two full episodes over two months was not what I intended when I mapped out “The One Twenties” of The Matineecast. I have missed the discussion with my friends, missed the interaction with my meagre listenership, heck – I’ve even missed the mechanics involved with producing this whole caper! (Most podcasters will tell you, that’s actually the part one misses the least).

By now, you’re probably asking yourself “why?”…after all, it’s not like I get paid for this.

Part of me believes I missed it because after all this time, it’s become a part of my identity. People who have never met me face-to-face (like today’s guest), still find a strange familiarity in the sound of my voice. It’s a very personal way of connecting with you fine folks, and not one that I take lightly. So knowing I’d forsaken that connection so much these last several weeks, I found myself feeling off…like I’d lost my voice.

I guess what I’m saying is, it’s good to be back. It’s good to have new hardware to work with, new films to talk about, and a schedule that allows me to make it all happen.

Hopefully, my tardiness hasn’t cost me any more of that connection!


Here’s what’s in store in episode one-hundred-twenty-two…
