Inspiring and easy to listen to

A great podcast! Ash’s passion and enthusiasm for writing makes it really easy to listen to and her little lessons from her “book of the week” are things that make a lot of sense but you don’t really think about until someone says it out loud.
The podcast also has great sound quality which can otherwise really turn me off from a podcast. 5/5!
