Chapter 3. The Worlds Greatest Case-Study

It's quite apt (bearing in mind the name of the podcast) that this episode is the first one we have recorded under lockdown conditions.

And after a few technical issues, you know the kind of thing - zoom settings, microphone positioning, headphone monitoring, putting my tooth in, it all went rather well.

It's a little hard to describe Chapter Three in just a few words as we managed to distract ourselves quite a bit whilst we were talking. So although it might meander (and I can't guarantee I answered as many questions as Ant asked) it should hopefully entertain.

Thanks for all of your feedback so far, some of which we talked about in this episode, and please keep it coming. All the links you need are below...

Stay safe,


P.S the latin for Wisteria isn't exactly humungous multiflora but you get the idea...

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.
