podcast has ended....

I discovered this podcast in 2012, but it ended back in 2009--however, the information is still relevant & valuable. Some of the ads are annoying, but I understand that they pay for the podcast.

Best podcast for writers available!

This is by far one of, if not, the best podcast for writers around.

I really wish Micheal would come back and do new ones. With all that's going on in the book world, we could sure use it.

A must for new writers!

Hey, if you're a new writer and want to get your learn on, download all of these podcasts and listen and learn. Michael has tons of great info and is really listenable. He's gone on to do another podcast called "Dragon Page", so once your done, get over to those to continue.
