Sonitotum With Matthew Wayne Selznick
Sonitotum With Matthew Wayne Selznick is the podcast companion to Scribtotum, my blog. Like the articles I write, Sonitotum is all about creating a healthy, sane, and successful writing life as seen through my own personal insights, reflections, and observations.
- sah-neh-tote-um (Noun): A portmanteau combining the words “sonic” (sound) and “totum” (roughly Latin for “the whole thing”). Borrowed / adapted from the word “factotum” (one who does all kinds of work) to mean “audio on all kinds of subject matter.”
