Talkward episode 3: Martin Evans
In episode 3: I stop just short of begging you to subscribe and not just listen via the website, I talk about being single for the first time in ages, and I give an update on Jackson the rescue dog who mostly seems to have forgotten his traumatic past and is becoming a gentle, lovely dog. With sleep apnoea.
Then I talk to award winning comedian, actor and voice artist Martin Evans, who is currently taking a break from stand-up to work out how best to express himself and his quite serious thoughts about the delusional stupidity he encountered in his formative years in the documentary he is making. I was so glad to meet him at last after what has been a long and genuine (possibly one sided) social media bromance. We had a really enjoyable and entertaining talk, which I hope you enjoy.
TalkWard with Matthew van der Want: Episode 2: Deep Fried Man
In episode 2, Jackson the rescue dog takes out some of the frustrations of a miserable childhood on a packet of sanitary pads and a cell phone and I have an important parenting breakthrough. Then I have a conversation with Deep Fried Man (Daniel Friedman), who used to come and listen to me play my music when he was a schoolboy and who is now an established South African comedian, satirist and TV star. Nice guy, fun talk.
Talkward with Matthew van der Want – Episode 1: Lloyd Ross
In the first episode of Talkward, I say hello, tell you how I evaded a home inspection for my new rescue dog, and avoid talking about why I am single again. Then I talk to Lloyd Ross, the South African music producer and filmmaker who co-founded Shifty Records and who was responsible for finding, recording, supporting and releasing the best South African songwriters, under almost impossible circumstances. Enjoy.
