S07 - Matt Stocks
On Riot Act’s seventh special, we welcome fellow podcaster Matt Stocks on to the show to talk about music media, and how it’s changing rapidly before our very eyes. What role do podcasts have to play in music media? Why isn’t rock music well-represented in the mainstream music press? Is print really dying? And how exactly did Steve treat former BBC weather forecaster Michael Fish when he was invited on to Steve’s show on TeamRock Radio? All these questions answered and more. Matt Stocks has been a presenter on Kerrang! Radio and Scuzz TV before he moved on to start his own podcast, Life In The Stocks. He’s interviewed a wide variety of guests from the worlds of music, television and film for the show including Tom Morello, Gene Simmons, Thomas Turgoose, Kate Lawler, Bez, Laura Jane Grace, B-Real, John Lydon, Dom Joly, Gail Porter and Doug Stanhope.
