Informative, useful and fun

I can’t believe I’ve just discovered this, after stalking (yes, stalking) Louise’s website for a few years. Thanks so much to both Louise and Denise for an informative, useful and fun podcast. Keep going, we’re listening!

Everything you need to know about editing but were too afraid to ask

I love this podcast because it's as good for seasoned editors as it is for newbies. All of us have gaps in our knowledge about different editing areas, or need reminding of key points. This podcast clearly explains it all. Denise and Louise have chosen their subjects carefully and logically to build the knowledge of the listener. I also love Editing Bites, the item at the end of each podcast where the pair recommend a resource each. It really is essential listening for anyone who edits, or who needs anything edited.
