If you have no idea what I’m talking about, Wood Talk is our long-running audio podcast about woodworking. Started in 2007 by myself and my buddy Matt Vanderlist of MattsBasementWorkshop.com, the show has always been just a couple of wood nerds talking about our shops, the community, and the craft. We later brought in our pal Shannon Rogers from RenaissanceWoodworker.com to create a well-rounded (not a fat joke) trio and we quickly settled into a predictably unpredictable schedule.
You see, since show #1, Wood Talk has always suffered from “side project” status. But last Spring we decided to try a little experiment. We promised ourselves that we’d record every two weeks just to see how it goes. The result? The shows got better, the audience grew, and we had more fun! So much fun, in fact, that we forgot to take our regular “summer hiatus.” As if this wasn’t encouragement enough, I spoke with many of you this past weekend at Woodworking in America who expressed how much you enjoy the program and you wish it came out more often.
Well, ask and you shall receive! I spoke with the guys and we all agreed to start doing the show weekly. So from now on, we’ll record every Wednesday afternoon! Of course, life happens and there may be weeks when we need to shuffle things around a bit, but for the most part, you can expect the show to arrive on a weekly basis.
