Happy anniversary! Glad to hear you come attached to your Apple TV. I’ve been with you since you were on Leo Laports show years ago. Keep up the good work.

Congratulations guys. I do love how the Matts are interchangeable without even any mention! Been a long time listener and enjoy the great “wood commentary”

Congratulations! 9 years of awesomeness in woodtalk-ing. I’ve enjoyed every episode. Matt V – super happy to hear your voice on the show!

Matt V.,

The new Matt is great, but it’s nice to hear you back on the show too. Please don’t be a stranger! Suppose Wood Talk to a big enough shop for a 4-man show? Could be awesome.


Love the interchangeable Matt. No mention. Not a beat missed. I paused for a moment to consider if I was having brain defect, as I tried to work out out that it was April fools. Subtle and well played. Bravo.

I noticed immediately, and wondered if they used old clips of Matt V’s voice, but then he was talking about current stuff. Great joke, and better that no one mentioned a thing. Great show as always
