I was recently invited to be a guest on the Modern Woodworker’s Association Podcast. The show is hosted by Tom Iovino of Tom’s Workbench, Dyami Plotke of The Penultimate Woodshop and Chris Adkins of High Rock Woodworking. The show has been running since 2010 and they have featured some really great guests in the past. If you aren’t familiar with the show, but if you’re a woodworker I’m sure you are, be sure to visit their website. Also follow the podcast on Twitter @MWA_National.
I was genuinely surprised when Dyami asked me to be a guest on the show. After all, I’m certainly no one special in the woodworking community. After the show I hesitantly asked him why he’d decided to see if I’d be a guest. His response was perfect. He said that you don’t have to be a famous woodworker to be interesting. He asked me because I’m an active member of the online woodworking community via Twitter and YouTube. And that I made meaningful contributions to the community. I thought this was really cool, that these guys would invite a realitve nobody like me to be on their show. I’m not trying to be down on myself here, just being realistic. As of this writing I have 126 subscribers on my YouTube channel and 176 followers on Twitter. I’m not exactly a big shot in the community.
We had a great conversation and it was a lot of fun. I really hope they see fit to have me back sometime!
