7/3/2022
Are you good at failure? No? Maybe? Don't worry. In episode 40 of Sonitotum with Matthew Wayne Selznick, I'm here to teach you how to fail.

6/5/2022
Riffing on a recurring theme. It's the return of regular episodes of Sonitotum, my podcast all about making stuff, finding sucess as we define it, and staying healthy and sane in the process.

What brings me back to it now? Well, I'm hoping you'll take ten...

I felt like talking it out with you. You helped me by providing me this outlet. I think you'll find some value in...
