In this episode of Sonitotum with Matthew Wayne Selznick, the aforementioned Matthew Wayne Selznick (that’s me… hey, do you think I’m gonna get in trouble for “keyword stuffing” my name like that? Also, Matt, the aughts called; they want their SEO tactics back..) provides an update on his (my) creative endeavors, details a physical setback, makes you an offer on his story coaching service, and looks for your feedback on some future stuff.
