“MetaPod unpacks the web’s most interesting podcasts and the stories behind them.”
“We made it!” – well, just about. After 36 shows featuring the finest podcasters in all the land, we decided to not take a breather to celebrate our first year, but produce a bonus episode of MetaPod.
Maybe it’s a slightly vain idea that listeners might want to hear about us, but we also wanted to catch up with each other about our packed calendar of episodes from 2021 – this time IN-PERSON (the shock, the horror!). So here it is – a record of ourselves talking with each other about ourselves and our wonderful show.
It’s not as bad as it sounds – honest. View the companion YouTube video here.
Fuelled by tea and extraordinarily good doughnuts (courtesy of Crosstown in London’s Square Mile), we tackle a few entertaining questions about MetaPod guests and topics. Check the show notes below.
MetaPod continues in 2022 with more unpacking of the web’s most interesting podcasts. Until then, why not spend the last few days of this year reflecting, with us, on a year of some amazing podcasts and guests?
Some might call it naval-gazing, but we’re not really into sea-based military stuff. We haven’t found a good podcast on that particular subject matter yet.

About Wendy Morrill and Kevin May
Wendy is co-host of MetaPod by night and employed by an international travel trade association by day. Her friends and enemies appreciate her love of baking, interest in new and old music and skeptical sense of humor. Before moving to the old Amsterdam, where she currently resides, Wendy lived in the new Amsterdam. She grew up in a different new place called New Hampshire. If you need a recipe for chocolate chip cookies, she can help you.
Kevin has somehow managed to be employed for over 25 years as a journalist, covering everything from crime, politics, media and, since 2005, travel and its intersection with technology. He’s the former Editor-In-Chief of US-based PhocusWire, although he mostly sits at home in the UK. Kevin’s accident rate on a mountain bike is worryingly high for a 40-something who should know better and he’s also spent far too long co-authoring a biography about electronic music pioneers Depeche Mode. Kevin is suspicious of people who do not like Marmite.
