I am really excited to announce that I have just submitted a new podcast to iTunes and Google Play!
In February 2018, the Matthew Félix On Air video podcast began as an Internet radio program in downtown San Francisco. My new The Radio Episodes: Words and Images podcast features segments from the radio show, in which Matthew converses with writers, photographers, filmmakers and more.
Declare your indie-pendence!
On my last episode, I had a wide-ranging talk with Borderlands Books' owner and founder Alan Beatts. We discussed Borderlands' history -- including the controversy that garnered it unexpected national attention in 2015, landing Alan everywhere, from the pages of the New Yorker to on camera with Fox and other news outlets. We also talked about what the climate is like today for indie bookstores, both how they've dealt with Amazon and some of the innovative ways they continue to adapt to the future.

First video podcast episode!
It was not without its technical challenges--but in the end it was a success! On Sunday, August 5, I broadcast my first-ever Matthew Félix on Air video podcast episode on Facebook Live. The following day, the episode was also uploaded to YouTube and iTunes, with more podcast platforms on the way.
After author, filmmaker, and LitWings founder Erin Byrne interviewed me about my two published books, as well as my forthcoming one; my time living in Spain, France, and Turkey; and my recent trip to Central Asia. The conversation also ventured into intuition, the show itself, and much more.
Facebook Live! This Sunday!

After braving multiple technical issues and banter with the audience, I was finally able to read a four-minute excerpt from my short story, "My Lost Sole," included in my forthcoming collection about my experiences in, on, and around toilets, tubs, and showers encountered on my travels.
Excerpts from that collection are available on the Porcelain Travels podcast.
Matthew’s debut novel, A Voice Beyond Reason, is the story of how a young Spaniard's awakening to his intuition gets him out of his head, so he can follow his heart.

Matthew Félix has traveled to more than 50 countries and done many short- and long-term stints abroad.
Matthew has lived in European capitals and isolated Spanish villages. He has visited India’s holy sites with a Buddhist monk, slept in a chicken coop in the Arctic, and scaled the sand dunes of the Sahara. He has climbed an active volcano in Chile, been surrounded by gunfire in Istanbul, and traveled the Nile in a sailboat.
Matthew speaks three languages fluently, as well as smatterings of others. When not working on writing projects or on the road, he is likely to be found exploring the streets of San Francisco or hiking the trails of Northern California.
