Informative and fun

This is a great podcast. It is just getting off the ground, but Crys Cain knows what she is doing. Two great guests right off the bat, informative, with a chill vibe that I think makes it great to listen to and take in the info.
Be sure to check this podcast out, even if you have been the writing biz for some time.
