Nice work

As a lazy musician this really helps to develop discipline. Wayne’s got a lovely down to earth, friendly tone. Mixing this with informative guest spots. Seamless questions. Doesn’t appear scripted like others. A podcast should be similar to a chat in a pub. Natural. This appears to tick that box in a more professional environment. Nice work!

Great for surviving the writing life.

Not once will you feel inadequate and a failure if you listen to this podcast. It isn’t preachy, there are no rules. Lots of giggles and never feel alone again on the lonely writer road.
