New writer’s inspiration

I have only just discovered this show, but now I’m listening to back episodes and it is fantastic! There’s a real deep dive in to writing that is so helpful, and I like the diverse spectrum of writers interviewed. Thank you so much 😊

Just what i needed!

I've just discovered this podcast and i'm obsessed. I'm doing a BA/BSc degree in Creative Writing and Philosophy, this is exactly what i've been looking for and i didn't even know it! Ben Blacker talks to so many of my favourite people in the comedy and scriptwriting scene and always seems to asks what I've always wanted to know. Keep going! 💛💛
