There are thousands of podcasts on the web, enjoyed by millions every day on their commute, at home or work, exercising and countless other places.
MetaPod unpacks the web’s most interesting podcasts and the stories behind them, via an in-depth interview with a different presenter every week.
All of our guests have a backstory – ranging from their passion for a particular subject, to how they investigated an issue or incident.
MetaPod gets into those stories and discovers what inspires the people who present the shows and the twists and turns along the way when creating such great podcasts.
Presented by Wendy Morrill and Kevin May, MetaPod launched in January 2021 and is available wherever you get your favorite podcasts.
Wendy is co-host of MetaPod by night and research manager of 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 currently ed-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.
