Sonitotum with Matthew Wayne Selznick 018: A Voice in the Desert
Hello! It’s a new episode of Sonitotum… and thanks to a simpler, more streamlined, and more portable approach to recording (which I talk about in the episode), there will be more to come in the weeks ahead. I miss talking to all y’all!
In this episode, I talk about…
- What inspired my return to the mic
- My next fiction project, what it’s going to take, and what it’s going to give
- My ongoing experiment with Amazon Sponsored Product advertising
And I ask you: What are you doing to engage with your creativity in this pandemic era? (You can respond in the comments section of this post, if you like!)

Be A Guest on Sonitotum
I’m always interested in talking to independent creators willing to have a transparent, in-depth, unguarded conversation about making stuff, finding success as you define it, and staying healthy and sane in the process. Check out this episode with musician Emma Wallace to get a sense of what I’m talking about.
