Avid listener

Love this podcast; the format, the questions, the interactions. It’s all great and a wonderful way to expand your reading library. I’ve added several books to my collection because of the interviews I’ve listened to. Hank does a fantastic job with thought provoking questions. I’m amazed at how many guests compliment his work. Thanks Hank! One question: How in the world do you keep up with all the books needed to complete the interviews?!

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!
