It’s no surprise that there has been a little bit of a dip in the podcasts and blog posts recently! The website and the podcast have been going through a short hiatus while I finish college and sort out my university options. However, it looks like a lot of my plans are finally coming together and everything should be completed within the next couple of weeks or so.
Once this small break is over I will “re-launch” the podcast and it’ll be bigger and better than ever! I have some exciting and ambitious new plans which should hopefully catch everyones attention again!
All I can say is thank you for being patient with me through the busy time and stay tuned for more to come!
I hope you all managed to snag a few albums you wanted yesterday during the 10th Record Store Day! Personally, I didn’t manage to get the records I wanted! (They were already sold out by the time I got there).
Unfortunately, there’s not going to be a podcast this week or next week. It’s the end of my Easter holidays and I’ve been catching up with lots of college work, which I have to prioritise over the podcast. Next weekend I am camping, due to this and being back at the college there won’t be a podcast next weekend. (This is probably a great time to catch up on any podcasts you’ve missed over at The Matt Weekly SoundCloud )
I hope you can bear with me through this quieter period on the podcast, I’m coming up to my last five weeks at college so over summer I will have more time to create content for you! As there won’t be podcasts for two weeks I’ll try to make more of an effort to do some blog posts so you will still have some content to soak up.
Thanks for being patient with me, as always, I’ll see you later!
Hi guys! Matt again!
I know the podcasts have been a little short recently, this is due to the assignment work I’ve had at college. I’m coming up to the end of my course so the work load is getting greater and greater. I still want to be able to release a podcast every week, but that will mean they’re going to be shorter like the more recent ones.
However, the Easter holidays are coming up and summer is just around the corner so if you stick around I’m sure in the coming month they should get back to their longer 15 / 20 minute length!
Thanks for being patient and sticking around, as always, I’ll see you next time!
Hi, Matt here again!
Tomorrow’s podcast is only a shorter one (below the five minute mark), however, I am touching on a topic which is serious to me.
I briefly share my thoughts on music education. I am not nearly qualified enough to talk about this and I didn’t have nearly enough information in front of me when it came to actually recording the podcast.
I’m sure in the future I will write a longer blog post on my whole opinion, or I will do a longer edition of the podcast so I can fully voice my opinion.
Anyway, I hope you enjoy the podcast when it goes up tomorrow, and thanks for sticking around!
Hi – Matt here,
It’s that time of year that quite a few seventeen and eighteen year olds all across Britain are facing… The dreaded UCAS applications and student finance struggle!
This has been the reason it’s only been me on the podcast, and the reason blog posts haven’t been as often as I would’ve liked. However, we’re right in the thick of it now! I’ve been going to interviews and getting offers and the end seems near.
Within the next month everything that needs to be sorted should be, and we should reach normality again.
Also keep an eye out on the Matt Weekly YouTube Channel as the older podcast will start to show up on there as well as SoundCloud!
Thanks for sticking around and I’l speak to you again soon!
Hi – Matt here,
The third edition of the podcast has just been released! Who’d of thought that I would’ve stuck to it for this long?
As we go into February and March, I should have more time off college to focus more on this, so get ready and expect to see more blog posts and other content!
Thanks for sticking around!
The more vigilant of you may have noticed that the first podcast is live!
Please keep in mind that this is the FIRST podcast. It is very awkward as a start but this was expected, please keep in mind that it will not always just be me presenting the podcast. I’m sure it will get less awkward as each week passes so I just ask that you’re patient and you let me develop my skills so the experience for you can be better and better.
After all, this is meant to be light-hearted and friendly!
Thanks for reading and feel free to check out the first edition of the podcast,
This Sunday you can look forward to the first edition of Matt Weekly kicking off! It’s still just an intro giving a brief explanation of what will be going on and what to expect from the podcast. (It’s only 5 minutes long so I’m sure you’ll have the time to listen to it!)
I’m still pretty rough around the edges when it comes to podcasting so you’ll have to grin and bear the first edition, just so I can have time to get more comfortable and used to listening back to my recorded voice. I’m sure the more I do it, the more relaxed I’ll get. (It just means you get to cringe with me during the first few weeks or so!)
If you have any ideas of topics you’d like to be discussed in the podcast, any music or work you’d like to be featured or you’d like to be in it yourself, don’t be afraid to use the contact page on the website and speak to me. I’m just starting so any help or contribution would be greatly appreciated.
I hope you’re all as excited to cringe at the first podcast as I am on Sunday!
If you’ve stumbled across this you might notice it’s quite empty at the moment, but it won’t be for long!
In 2017 there will be a weekly podcast being uploaded to the Matt Weekly Soundcloud, and on here. There will also be blog posts, videos and pretty much anything being posted up here for you all to enjoy!
Hopefully I will be soon be joined by others who will be producing content also, meaning you aren’t just stuck with me.
So keep checking on here and my other social media accounts to see when this is officially kicking off!
Many thanks and see you all in 2017!
