Matt Medeiros WordPress Interview

Just a head’s up for people who do not know Matt, he is the founder of MattReport.com, a website which hosts Matt Report, the most-listened WordPress business podcast in the world. In each podcast, he talks with many influencers and entrepreneurs who eat, breath, and sleep WordPress.

A few months ago, we sat down with Matt to talk about the thought process behind his project. We also discussed about the future of WordPress. He dropped a number of gems about the preferences of business clients when it comes to WordPress websites. And, we also talked about plugins! (What’s a WordPress interview without knowing a few new plugins!)

So, listen away and do let us know what do you think of this podcast in the comments section below.

(Disclosure: This podcast was recorded before the launch of WordPress 3.7 and 3.8. Currently, Matt’s podcast is on it 58th episode.)
