My favourite Aussie book podcast

This podcast has a similar style and tone to the ABC Conversations podcast: in-depth but easy to listen to interviews with great names in the industry. Chenee is highly engaging and asks all the questions I’m dying to know the answers too. Recommended.

Warm, Informative and Engaging

Came in late to this one but I have quickly devoured the back catalogue. A fascinating exchange with an array of successful authors/creatives which offers a candid insight into both specific titles as well as the devices behind their literary process.
WOTP showcases the writer, their inspirations, motivations, pitfalls and counsel in a friendly chat which makes you feel like you’re eavesdropping from the next table at a coffee shop. Makes me want to write my own novel. Love it.
