Episode 19

Published on:

31st Aug 2020

Chapter 19. That was the week that was.

Whichever way you look at it Chapter 19 is a bit of an epic...

You would have thought that after having had a few go's at recording TCD we would have been pretty good at it...and to be honest I think Ant & I did as well.

But nothing could be further from the truth, as you will discover as you work your way through the next 90 minutes or so. I think the episode captures the kind of week I have had - even if it meanders a bit, and we giggle quite a lot.

So whilst it might not be succinct, structured or polished (obvs) it most certainly is epic.

See you for Chapter 20, which will be the live special for the Couch Convention weekend - and if you don't know what I am talking about then the details are below

About the Podcast

The Corona Diaries
Steve Hogarth
Lead singer of Marillion, father, hippy, punk, soul singer, progressive rockstar (wtf!), defender of the faith, voice of reason in a world gone crazy...

...and now podcaster.

Join me as I talk about my life and what is rambling around in my head.

Along the way I will focus on some of the stories that have shaped my career and my life, as well as reading from my diaries and offering my take on the wider world.

Stay safe,


P.S I began this journey just as CoVid-19 took hold and changed our lives, possibly forever, so it seems apt to reference that in the naming of the podcast.
Support The Corona Diaries and embrace your inner purple...

I have been tinkering with audio since my mid-teens, recording songs & producing content for friends.

Post university I embraced the world of retail, firstly in supermarkets and later in & around the music instrument industry.

After 20 years or so, I took a sideways step into podcasting and began a venture called ashortstories, which helps in the development & production of podcasts for anyone that has a story to tell.
