loving the interaction
Have been listening to this
for many months now. It was recced by Joanna Penn of the Creativr Penn podcast. I love the polyvocality of this podcast and the friendly interaction between contributors; so good to have different viewpoints. Super informative and informed. One thing: you said that people remember week by week releases like Mandalorian more than binge watching. Haha, not me! I remember binge-watched series incredibly well and will re-watch but if I have to wait for a week (as I had to do back in the 70s to 90s), I would lose momentum and interest. When I discover new author I will binge read their backlist and then wait on new releases while I re-read favourites!
If you’re going to listen to one author podcast, pick this one!
This is the first time I’ve ever left a review for a podcast, but Lindsay, Andrea and Jo are so generous with all that they give to the author community, they deserve thousands of five-star reviews. I learn so much from listening to these podcasts. Their collective wealth of knowledge is staggering, and I find there’s something new to be learned from every episode. Their honesty, expertise, and humour mean that I inevitably finish listening feeling inspired and excited to get my books out there. Make sure you have a pen at the ready as you’ll want to take notes!!
