Good podcast

Provides good insight into the life of writers with great interviews. The only reason I can’t give it 5 stars is because Hilliard Guess is a horrible interviewer. He cusses for no reason (even if the guests are not cussing) so I can’t listen to the podcast in the car when my kids are there. And he can’t simply ask a question without throwing in some random remark.
