My favorite writing podcast

This is the only podcast for which I know the day it releases each week (Friday). Jess and KJ feel like my friends. Start from the beginning with older episodes to follow their writing journeys. I am always inspired to write after listening!

The best podcast out there on the writing life.

This is my single favorite podcast and I look forward to it every week. Great real talk about what it takes to build and maintain a writing career. Plus fun tips, interviews, and book recs!
