Thank you for sharing the last 8 years with me!

January 27, 2014


It’s hard to believe but 8 years ago today the very first episode of Matt’s Basement Workshop was posted. A lot has changed since that very first episode, and I’m sure I’ve told the story enough times that I don’t need to repeat it here.

But I just want to say thank you to everyone who has listened, watched, commented and have participated in some way with the show. You have no idea what it means to me! Here’s to many more years of podcasting!

    Congrats Matt. It’s been a blast listening, watching and, for the Spoken Wood Podcast, helping out. You’ve earned that “Podfather” title and it suits you so well. Keep it coming my friend.

    Of your early swags ( a Kreg multi-max ) quite a few years ago.
    Keep up the good work, I,ll be watching along with a lot of others.
    Out of couiosity, do you have any idea of how many followers you have ?
    My best regards, and thanks again.

      It’s hard to say, I have quite a few different ways for people to follow the show, but if I were to estimate it would be a little over 10,000 subscribers (including YouTube).
