One of my favorite podcast

As an inspiring writer it is so good to hear established writers talk about their processes and pitfalls, and successes!

The best!

Hank Garner is the best interviewer I’ve ever heard. Excellent show!

Except for the audio

Garner is a skilled interviewer who brings his guests to talk--and lets them do it. His guests are interesting and lively. In short, it's an excellent podcast.

Now, if he could only get control of the audio. What causes those jumps and nulls? I have a hunch is has to do with some software he's using to process the recording, but it's not working out very well. If the show weren't so excellent, I'd bail out due to the audio deficiencies.

Just back your ears and say to yourself (because it's true) "The show is worth it. Just put up with the audio because the show is great."
