Every podcast is, to some degree, a pet project. I’ve hosted some, and guested on many. This guest appearance was something else entirely.

Martin Feld is a PhD student at the University of Wollongong, and is doing his thesis on podcasting, RSS, and more. As part of his thesis, he’s hosting a podcast, which he cleverly named Really Specific Stories.

Really Specific Stories is an interview show, where Martin deftly asks his guests about their origin stories, how they got into podcasting, their relationship with the open internet, and more.

On this episode, Martin and I walked through my path into podcasting, starting all the way — and I’m not kidding — from when I was a toddler. It was a fun discussion, and I’m honored that Martin asked me to be a part of the project.

I’m also in the company of a ton of amazing guests; do check out the other episodes as well.
