Matt Forney’s Podcast Extravaganza, Episode One: 2013 — The Year the Manosphere Broke


Yes, I’ve hopped on the bandwagon. Surrendered to the jeering hordes. You can now download my mad ravings in audio format and inject them straight into your skull. In this first (and possibly last) episode, I talk about why I stopped doing YouTube videos, why fame is a double-edged sword, the invasion of frauds, phonies and groupies into the manosphere, and attempt to recruit co-hosts for future episodes so I don’t have to do all the work.

You can listen to the whole thing below:

A few notes:

  • I was having an allergy outbreak when I recorded this last night, and despite popping a couple of Benadryls, I still came off somewhat sniffly. My bad.
  • This podcast is completely unedited. I could have cut out all the pauses and “ums” and whatnot, as well as some linguistic screw-ups (for example, when I was talking about 1991: The Year Punk Broke), but I left them in for authenticity and to encourage myself to improve in future episodes.
  • The humming noise in the background is my laptop’s cooling pad; my (quieter) Macbook is in the shop right now.
  • I would have led into the podcast with Jerry Harrison’s “Man with a Gun” (akin to how Dagonet began his podcast with Passion Pit’s “Take a Walk”), but I didn’t want to get sued or pay a king’s ransom for music licensing. Any advice for me on this front, feel free to chime in.

Otherwise, let me know you what you think and give me your suggestions for future podcasts in the comments.
