Here we are again. Reintroducing The Matt Kollock Show. Reframing and recontextualizing. And this is exactly the way I want it!
Kind of a Course Correction
I said a lot of stuff in the previous episode of the podcast. I stand behind it all! However, I realized I was building a house I didn't want to live in. What?
I said I wanted the podcast to be about certain things last week, and I do want the show to include the topics, ideas and themes I talked about in that episode. I just really don't want to devote the show to anything ever, at all. I only want it to be about what I am inspired to talk about in the moment. Otherwise, it's going to be tough getting episodes done.
Guests will be on the show soon, and a feedback show is in the works. I'm going to do those things. But I'm not going to be a fundamentalist about making the podcast about one thing or another. And I felt myself kind of going there a little bit last week.
Basically, I was spending a lot of time and wasting a lot of energy giving too much of a shit about what certain people think. I wanted to prove certain things to certain people about certain things, which is why I said the things I said last week in the way I said them.
It's been suggested recently that I'm, "losing touch with reality." Instead of proving that I'm not, I'm going to lean into it. It's a different perspective. It's more fun. It's what's working.
To be clear, all that shit I said last week is still happening. It's all just going to happen on my terms now. I want to have fun with this show and be inspired to create more episodes more regularly. I'm only going to make that happen if I make it fun for myself.
So I guess that's what I mean. You'll hear all about it in this episode's cover story!
