    A Voice for the Voiceless

    A Voice for the Voiceless

    David Shelton is probably best known in his hometown as the Leaf-Chronicle columnist who advocates for LGBTQ rights, giving a voice to a community that all too often goes unheard. That alone is a unique experience, but he was also part of the Leaf-Chronicle's advertising team when the newspaper's office was destroyed by a tornado. So naturally, Matt had to bring him to the show!

    How to Freak Out the State Capitol

    How to Freak Out the State Capitol

    Mason Watkins, Photojournalist for WPSD Local 6 in West Kentucky, joins Matt to talk about some of his most hair-raising -- yes, we said hair-raising -- experiences recording television news in his area. There's equipment failure, live on-air flubs and, as the title suggests, a serious freakout at the state capitol.

    Looking Back on 2020

    Looking Back on 2020

    Many people don't want to remember 2020, and for the most part, we don't blame them. For all the misery it brought, though, 2020 was an eventful year. From the pandemic, to the Black Lives Matter protests, to the Presidential election, it likely changed our society -- and journalism -- forever. Leaf-Chronicle Sports Writer George Robinson joined me to talk about that fact, and reflect on all that happened this year.

Great story, Matt. I’m sure if you’d been that reported you could have written an entire book on that. Just found this Podcast, but it won’t be the last time. I’m fixing to go back to your manhunt story right after I go find your FB page and follow you there too.
Love your writings.
